Omg, this one is embarrassing.
I was at my grandparents house for the holidays when I watched the trailer. When it was over I was freaking out about the ‘wait don’t go’ line… what does that mean? what is happening next? will he stay? of course he will, he always will, but maybe not? has he change so much he won’t stay? fuck fuck fuck I need Rob Thomas personal number or I won’t make it till march.
Then I checked tumblr and noticed I wasn’t alone and then laugh for hours because the vm fandom is hilarious (I almost choked and died at the “And Then They Banged” tag, true story). Everyone was writing theories and fics about it. And all I wanted to do was draw everything I was reading, no matter what, just draw every possible scenario of it but at the same time I was stuck not drawing at all, too many questions rounding in my head.
I spend the whole day thinking, then I got really worried, what if he chooses to leave? then what? And literally I said out loud (very loud) STOP HIM DAMMIT! JUST STOP HIM! that was really awkward because I was at the the grocery store with my grandma, everyone started looking around and asking me ‘who’ because they thought someone stole something from me, when I realize what happened I just started laughing, non stop. My grandma (who knows me too well) apologized for me and got me out of the place.
Anyway, while I was laughing it came to my mind this memory of one of my friends who used to tackle us down every time one of us was leaving a party and that was it, she was going to jump him (which actually happened in the movie) and stop any further moves (towards the door, other moves were totally allowed). Then I add the cute factor where he promises to stay, to never leave and I choose to read never leave as always coming back to her hahaha I’m just trying to grant me visionary credits here.

I just adore everything Wallace and by the the time there was this week themed campaign (mac week, keith week, etc) and I was afraid that no one would do anything for him. So I put my cape on, climbed to the roof and declared “I got your back Fennel!”
The comic format.
I’m more of a comic person when it comes to my drawings. It’s almost imposible for me not having them saying something, telling a story. Since I was a kid I liked drawing but you will hardly find individual drawings around my stuff, they are mostly comics, most of them were birthday or mother’s day gifts I did for my mom. I still make them because I’m cheap hahahaha no, she loves them and get’s very sad when I don’t, really I can buy her a house and she won’t be happy till she gets her damn drawing (she’s my everything).
Anyway, the idea, how did I came up with the situation of the doodle was…. luck. One second I was making the equivalent to a house of cards with my pencil, eraser, and sharpener and the next I was googling pictures of muskets and soldiers from America’s revolutionary war. Not so impressive right? hahaha but that’s mostly how my mind works when it comes to drawing.
I just wanted to keep talking haha or as information for everyone who cares. I always do the whole thing first on paper. I try not to left details out especially hands and stuff I know are hard for me, drawing directly on the computer is just too difficult. Then I scan the thing and use it as a layer base in photoshop (before) or illustrator (now), and in a new layer I remake the whole thing. I take A LOT of time in the remake part because I’m never happy and once I start coloring getting back to fix lines it’s a bitch (one of the reasons it takes me forever to publish anything). Then I start coloring (keeping the screencaps around to match the colors as much as I can). For this illustrator is way more fun because it helps you coloring similar groups. For effects and other wonders I’m still too scared to try I know photoshop is so much better.
That’s it! :)

I was all in with this because I thought no one was going to ask and now you have and I’m scared haha.
About the doodle.
The idea started once when jaqofspades or petpluto said that the guys on this gif set were Veronica’s army and then I was having flashes of them at a war field fighting Nazis right beside Veronica, her being The Doctor and they her loyal companions, Veronica crime fighter at night and super pop star at day and they being her dance crew/squad partners and a lot of really stupid scenarios like that. But the more I looked at the scene the more it made me think of a boy band video so I decided to start with that.
My first drafts had them all individually doing something and with a little introductory text next to them like teen magazines do.
Enjoys: a good wave, practicing ballet moves and watching broadway musicals.
Perfect date: angry flirting by the beach, mimosas and a crow bar.
Something like that haha but knowing my span attention sucks I knew it was better to do one drawing with all the guys in it.
About the t-shirts.
I always try to pick actual clothes from the show. I spend a while looking at screencaps for it. The thing with Piz and Dick is that they don’t really have iconic outfits (nor Wallace, but he’s iconic all by himself). Then I noticed that Dick’s is always wearing message t-shirts and started to collect caps of them.
But I had this thought from moment one of making another doodle that showed Veronica’s real army the ones that really would kill and get killed for her so having Piz and Dick was bothering me a bit, that’s when I thought “they’re gonna be there, but they won’t belong” so that’s when I thought I was gonna play with the message in the tshits having them be normal and yet showing my personal view about them without damaging the whole thing with politics. I’m quit proud of Dick’s but not so much with Piz’s because is not as ingenious, my first draft had the word nice built by the words boring, passive aggressive, etc… but no one would have never ever notice and I was mentally tired at the time so I just leave it as it is today :(

Pick any visual fanwork (drawing, painting, design, edit, GIFset, video) I’ve created, and send me an ask/fan mail about it. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on it: what I was thinking when I created it, why I created it in the first place, what’s going on in the character’s heads, why I chose certain techniques, what this moment means to me, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
(Inspired by the Writing Meme posted here by fictorium)
I’m posting this not because I have so many wonderful fanworks of my own to talk about, but in the hopes that the real artists will repost so we can ask them questions :)
