For [personal profile] amezri, Lydia and Allison. I don't know why, but I always want to draw characters falling. In all fandoms. It's just fun. And Lydia could make it happen. In a Mary Poppins kind of way.

(On tumblr.)



After I drew this, I thought to myself, "They'll be okay. It's a surprise Raksura AU." Which is a pretty small fandom overlap there, but I cracked myself up anyway. XD And also a sign that have been drawing a lot of Raksura fan art (reverse bangs! To be revealed soon!). :P

For [dreamwidth.org profile] everbright, who asked for Mako, Stacker, and tea.

This is on tumblr here. Because I am trying to be a trendy fannish kid.

Oh, I just read this tumblr AU story for an anime -- you know the kind where the characters exist in the same morass of pop culture as the fans writing the fic. It was cute, but hahaha, I understood one in twenty references for all the internet pop culture the characters were into. I'm an old fan now. XD

Some stuff I drew.



I ship it so hard. And I want plotty future fic hijinks with trauma-bonding feels and science. I don't really buy Lydia going for it in high school (aside from trauma-bonding feels), she's too much focused on winning, her guy being part of that winning. She doesn't want to fight her social battles alone, protecting someone (well, not yet). But the thing is, when you leave high school -- guys like Stiles become a lot cooler. He's gonna be a grad school rockstar, and Lydia, I think Lydia is a graduate school kind of girl.



Oh, and also, important question -- if Methos came to Beacon Hills, would Lydia scream to foretell his arrival?

(On tumblr here and here.)

Art: Naruto

Here's some Naruto art...


There's no good reason for this. Ok, no, the reason is that I love pictures with Kakashi and his ninken, but I am bad enough at one dog; I am not fucking drawing eight, jfc.


And this one is for [personal profile] torch. Apparently there are lots of Hashirama and Madara feels in canon these days. Since I'm woefully behind on that, she should probably write fic about it.

I'm trying to be all tumblr savvy now, so please don't post these to tumblr before I do. (The first one is already on tumblr here.)

For [livejournal.com profile] tielan who asked for Steve and Maria.

I feel like all of Shield has such as soft spot for their defrosted Capsicle, and they're all trying to shepherd him into the modern era... Steve's gotten used to it, you know? People are always willing to help him. :P





(after spending a little time on tumblr, I have suddenly decided to sign all my fan art. XD I am pentapoda there, and I will post these images there sometime this week, so if you want to post any of my art to tumblr... please wait.)

ETA: added this to tumblr.

I spent my morning making this hopefully eyecatching reminder because I don't want you to have the same fannish scare that I did. #fannish-world-problems

Self, I thought, you should check on Yuletide and see if the ball has started rolling yet. ANSWER: YES, DEAR GOD.

PSA for all those like me:

Yuletide signups close Monday, October 14, 2013.

(I am sorry it took me forever to post this here. RL got a little... uh... for a bit there. But here it is!)

More Hockey RPF treehouse reversebang! Do you like hockey players being more adorable than they have a right to be? Are you unreasonably in love with Sidney Crosby's hang ups about his home? (Yes!!) Would you like there to be meaty conversations that matter while all of this is going on?! Then I am delighted to share [archiveofourown.org profile] chibirhm's reversebang story!:D

Well, the shirts didn't get printed, but here's a picture of Loki and a lindworm for [livejournal.com profile] ithildyn.



What I've learned from this is that I should read the ENTIRE article on Fafnir before deciding to draw an odd picture of him, Loki, and tea. Now that I've read the entire article, I know this makes no sense. Or rather, even less sense.

It's also posted here on tumblr. I thought this picture would be pretty tumblr compatible, but mainly I've learned that tumblr is a fickle, fickle thing. One day I'll figure it out.

My usual tumblr interaction:
ieliberte: I can tell when you get on tumblr, because all of a sudden I have reblog notifications for my last 10 "cute animal" posts. Do you check anyone else's blog?
pentapus: yeah, well... shut up.

In other words, I'm awesome at tumblr. Got some protips about it. Going to act on those... soon.
pentapus: (Default)
I swear to god, I will shut up about this is just THREE MORE DAYS! And until then I will bribe you with Teen Wolf fan art, as requested by [livejournal.com profile] moia



My character notes for this new fandom are as follows:

Lydia: Add more hair.
Derek: Add more eyebrows.

And the shameless plug:


I submitted these t-shirt designs! They need votes to get printed!
Join Threadless to vote (give it a 5!)

See my previous entry for html to share my designs on LJ/DW. You can hotlink to my photobucket account, no worries, or you can upload them to tumblr or another website if you'd like to share them there!
pentapus: (Default)
It's that time again - I submitted two designs to Threadless' Lion King challenge! You know what that means - Yep, 7 days of me posting every day!!! To remind you! Plus Bribery!

Dear Fandom,

Please vote for my designs! (Remember, 5 is good! Vote 5!)

If you link my designs or reblog or vote for my designs, please leave an art request here! I will try to fill as many of them as I can over the next week (as I continue bothering all of you with art posts about my designs). :)

So I started watching Teen Wolf. This picture is Lydia Martin. She screams a lot and is my favorite. She has lots of personality, is super smart, and is very self-interested (as opposed to a protagonist who's limited plotwise to Doing the Right Thing, i.e. Scott and Allison), and gets to do eerie creepy things that freak her out. She is oodles of fun to watch.

Please give me recs! Tell me where the hangouts and challenges are! Though I've heard this is a one pairing fandom - Y/N? Maybe I can bribe people for Lydia fic? Ooh, how about team fic?! There's got to be that, right?

I hear fandom has a lot of Derek. My favorite part of Derek Hale is his total failure at life and leadership. (He hopes all his pack babies' problems can be solved by TRYING HARDER or CARING MORE - and he's wrong and there are consequences. I ♥ consequences.) I am making a wild assumption that fic!Derek will be... competent and/or smooth, even, and that will make me sad. So sad. :(

Also, I WANT LYDIA. And yes, Lydia/Stiles. Or Lydia/anyone. And teamfic. And world building. Tell me -- is there hope?!

Earlier, I posted some orphaned images (doctor who, inception) from Treehouse Reversebang. This is another orphaned image. It was intended to be a prompt for a story, but I think it looks pretty cool on its own.

(If you would like to write a story for this image, let me know. First I will squee, and then I will take the image down until you can post image + story to AO3. :) Otherwise, like I said, I think it looks pretty cool on its own.)

ETA: [personal profile] tucuxi has offered to write a story for this image, so it's down until she finishes! :)

pentapus: (Default)
Two things:

One
I added all complete Treehouse Reversebang stories to a Collection on AO3. There are 10! Wow.

Two
I have 2 orphaned images from previous rounds of Treehouse Reversebang. (And thank you to those authors for letting me know they wouldn't be able to write for these - knowing was much better than not knowing.) These were intended to be prompts for stories, but I think they look pretty cool on their own.

(If you would like to write for one of these, let me know. First I will squee, and then I will take the image down until you can post image + story to AO3. Otherwise, like I said, I think they look pretty cool on their own. :) )


Doctor Who




Inception (Or any fandom with scruffy blonde dudes in plaid, I guess :P)

Another Hockey RPF treehouse reversebang story! The prompt I gave was about all the behind-the-scenes film players take these days, and [archiveofourown.org profile] thehoyden delivered brilliantly. I loved the ensemble feel and her choices of what, exactly Sidney says in his sleep. Especially love getting a bit of Flower and Duper, troublemakers.

The first Hockey RPF treehouse reversebang story! It is a lovely synergy where the tone of the story matches the tone of the art perfectly, which makes me happy because I definitely had a moment of "SORRY, HERE'S A MOOSE." My favorite part of this is Geno because he is sly like a fox. ♥

I participated in [livejournal.com profile] kakairu_fest's summer round - Team Bingo.

I made two fanworks for the challenge, one of them in a hotel room in my travel sketchbook with my only working micron pen + a black sharpie. I had to ask the front desk to scan it for me on their awful, awful scanner (it was meant for text, not images), and then I spent an hour in the lobby cleaning it up with my laptop's trackpad. While my coworker asked with increasing desperation if we were going to leave for the airport soon. NEVER AGAIN.

I'm on Team AU so, psst, you should vote for them. Voting isn't until next weekend. I'll give you a heads up when it starts. ;)

Another treehouse reversebang story is done, and I love it. Methos and Natasha being paranoid and competent as they each try to figure out the other's secrets. I love how their different experiences (both quality and, uh, sheer quantity) inform their reactions - Natasha who spends her life trying to spot the knife headed for her back, compared to Methos, equally paranoid but who knows that there is life after survival. And if you expect to have a life on the other side, it is worth a little effort to cultivate friends, even the unlikely ones. ♥
Whispered on the Winds by [dreamwidth.org profile] rhi, art by [dreamwidth.org profile] pentapus
Avengers/HL crossover, Gen
Five times Methos met Black Widow and, eventually, Natasha Romanov. Or, as Methos likes to put it, four times he ended up dead or 'dead' around Black Widow.

Prompted from this picture:



Yes, she's blonde. Two reasons - 1) Black Widow is a spy. 2) It was originally drawn to be Amanda and I tossed a few alternatives if Rhi wanted to play with them. I am very glad she did. :)
pentapus: (Default)


This image comes from a plotbunny in which the Avengers run into Natasha practicing her personas, and I mean, full on in character. Natasha, sundress, dog, New York city grocery store sunday afternoon, bubbly, middle class - no recognition. And it kind of creeps Steve and Tony out, but Clint's like, shrug, "She practices." And it's implied a little bit that Natasha is laughing her ass off... on the inside. On the outside, she shrieks and facebooks that she just met Tony Stark and apologizes when Pongo keeps sniffing his crotch.

...man, I want to read that story.

P.S. OH YEAH, AND I HAVE ART AND A WACOM TABLET AGAIN. THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR ADVICE! (To a certain extent I wimped out in the face of learning a new program and downloaded the PS trial. PS, I LOVE YOU. I'm going to give a look-see at the other programs mentioned while the trial tides me over. :D)
