Radical Drive 2 - Joke Time
Tamale tells a joke. It's up to you to either laugh or sigh.

Uploading chapters out of order because fuck it, I'm really starting not to care.
Loading...
So since rebuilding my page here, I've decided not to upload anymore fanart. It seems to be more of a detriment and downright fake to upload that stuff early on, only to put up my own original works, almost like I'm lying. I know audiences can be really fickle when it comes to that stuff, so I'll be transparent here. Althougt I can have many ideas for series I enjoy, I don't really classify myself as a fan artist. And the sad, ugly reality shows itself the minute I stop making it, that's when your "fans" leave you. "Fan" in the sense that it's not you they like, but rather the fact that it's actually someone else's work.

There's way too huge a focus on fanart these days, which downplays and discourages artists to test their own creativity for real original content and characters. NO, I don't mean "OC" as in your fan character from Sonic or MLP, which get mistaken for the actual definition of OC these days. I mean something you've made from the top of your head. I'd argue that in some cases, it's more effort to be able to do so since again, it is a challenge. However, I am not trying to discredit those who do fanart, especially if that's your thing specifically. I have seen some amazing works of art that inspire me to occasionally create fanart, but at the same time, we're over saturated in it, especially on Deviantart. The old NSFW pieces I did last year were also fun to do, and unlike fanart, I was mostly using my own characters (with the exception of one Princess Daisy pic). Those got more attention and reception than my main works, which I was alright with, since it was still fun to draw regardless. After all, sex sells, amirite? 

There is actually so many things I've wanted and planned to make, but it'll just over shadow the creations that come from my very being rather than just my appreciation for other companies' works. I know not to take this as a personal thing, as this is the mindset of people, to latch on to what you identify with easier. So it shouldn't be taken personal if I decide that that's not what I'm going to be doing, at least not for an extremely long time. I always find it more impressive to come across artists that I've never seen before, creating worlds that have the potential to be something. That can be the very next thing you end up watching on TV or Netflix, reading from the comic store, or playing as it becomes a decent indie or even AAA videogame on the market.

I cannot fault the market for doing NSFW and fanart mostly, since that's where the money's at and that's what people want to see. Even the former I think I'd rather do ATM, since some of my actual main works have traces of it anyway. But I always like it far more when artists challenge themselves to a world that means more coming from scratch rather than adding more to worlds already created. This is why my main place of sharing is actually Instagram, as glitchy and annoying as that app can be, many people there  give everything a chance, if it's not a like bot or something silly. Even Youtube I'm trying to push, but it seems the Youtube boat has sailed long ago for many types of content. It's about as stagnant as Deviantart, but still barely worth a better shot since I show the "making of" these works.


A piece of your favorite series can always be a part of you, but it'll never be from you. 
I saw a thread like this earlier than reminded me of 2 topics I made way back, so I decided to make a new one. As I draw the comic and expand the world, I'll always seek to improve on things like anatomy and backgrounds. Nothing worse than drawing concept art forever and never actually getting to drawing the story. I say this because I feel like my style is enough to stand out now, (they used to look very Sonic like) and I've gotten a better grasp on body structure.

But anyway, does this style look more anime or western? And do they look more animal than human? Some think it looks like Sonic/DBZ (some of my inspirations), but not once do I see things like "it looks furry or animal like". Even at times, some "furry" groups reject it because they look too human. The latter I'm okay with since I don't really like drawing hairy characters with too many animal traits, but that's just me (and my excuse to draw cute girls).

Radical Drive 4 - The Scorpion Butterfly (Page 2) by RadicalLaRuby Tamale B. by RadicalLaRuby Ruby D. by RadicalLaRuby Serena by RadicalLaRuby  

Edit: The last girl is not an anthro, but a Goddess, or human. But she still counts to my questions. This is not aiming for something super realistic, but definitely something more practical for basic movement. I'm already more or less satisfied with the art/design.
Serena
The God of Radical Drive. While accompanied by the Gods and Goddesses of other elements, Serena is known as the Goddess of Light, and the most well known that the living pray to. Billions of years keeping Heaven safe from the Devil has left Serena jaded about reality itself, there is barely a fraction of time to relax. She is easily irritated by people who pray to her and don't work out their own problems, and does not allow herself or the other Gods to intentionally and directly interfere with mortal affairs. There's quite enough work in the afterlife as is.
Loading...
La Professora
Arguably the most important person on earth by the 50th century. The Professor is the woman responsible for the new Sub-Net, built as an alternative universal network after the original internet was destroyed by a massive sentient virus. Most of the network runs on test mode, to keep the same thing from happening again or worse yet, the very same virus finding its way into the modern network and technology. She is also the brains behind most basic and military vehicles, as well as weapons. Her aura's ability is wind.

Tamale B.
A talented but extremely lazy and rude 11 year old fox girl. Tamale aspires to be a "model", but won't explain to Ruby what kind. Usually scolded by Ruby for eating all of their food that they don't have much of, and overall poor manners and hygiene. Tamale is reaching the age in her life where she sees boys and girls quite differently something Ruby is noticing first hand. Since running away from home, Tamale has no proper role model to steer her in the right direction. All she knows is how to fight when she feels like it, and she'll do it in style.
Loading...
Ruby D.
A cheerful 10 year old mongoose. Lives with her best friend Tamale in a run down apartment with no water or heat. Ruby has a tendency to scold Tamale for her poor manners and hygiene. She is usually terrified of being alone, however, and is pretty aimless on life herself. She and Tamale both lack the discipline to work or finish school, and instead make pocket cash by via random job postings.

Celphelia
The Scorpion Butterfly's original design from March 2016. Spunky and quick to charge into battle. Hates being ignored and not being taken seriously. The poison from her tail can weaken enemies and spread as quickly as a few seconds.
Loading...
Sharin
One of the characters I've created for Radical Drive. When humans existed, she was the first to use the Aura Drive, and ability that draws out your inner most power or element. In her case, she can use any other mortal being's basic or drive ability, as long as she has a spiritual connection to them. However, this power has a major drawback for them both...

Ms. C.
A canceled commission. Not a fan of having my time wasted by clients who back out last minute. But on the bright side, I can probably use this for a new design some other time. I enjoy how she came out.

Same here. Have you ever considered animation? Your characters look ready to be part of one.

I considered destroying this account once and just left it since there was no audience over time. It may or may not stay depending how it goes this time around. Until then, I have an Instagram and Youtube, the latter I'm using most.
