No Troubled Waters Flow by Ciaran-Nash

In contrast to a previous critique-giver, the first thing I noticed was the lovely curve of the thick trunk. It leads nicely up from th...

Musashi in a Kishimoto style by kibasennin

This is a very interesting-looking character; you've clearly given his design and story some thought. It's nice to see a character who ...



GW - Padma and Stephen by Lutra-Gem
GW - Padma and Stephen
Some of my characters have had a radical overhaul, especially since I realised how white and standard my cast were. Margaret and Pearl have become Padma and Mira respectively, two sisters from the equivalent of India in the other world.

Padma is an albino of Indian descent and Stephen is part Japanese. They are best bros: Padma is a non-verbal autistic and can’t apply her Magic, but is excellent with mechanical gadgets, while Stephen is able to use his Magic to transport the two of them and protect her. They make an excellent Science/Magic team and run most of the sabotage and infiltration missions.

GW - Julian Sadler by Lutra-Gem
GW - Julian Sadler
I did this last November as a little exercise of drawing on coloured paper. This is a slightly more recent version of Julian (I've changed his ethnicity and background a bit), and we're seeing him aged 20. It's not the most recent version, though; rather than having ancestry from Israel, I changed him to be at least part Arab, so his middle name's now Imad. I've done a lot of rethinking of Gemwing and not produced much, so I can't really offer you any serious coherence.

I wanted to draw a picture experimenting with pulling fabric, and this happened.

Levi on a Tiger by Lutra-Gem
Levi on a Tiger
I... do have a reason for this but it requires photos for the explanation. Let it suffice to say that, after putting together a model of Levi and a toy tiger I have as a joke, I really wanted to draw/paint a proper picture of Levi on a tiger.

Oh wow, it's been a while. I'm not going to apologise, you're bored of that.

Frankly, I'm not active on dA very much at all these days. I've just completed a three year degree (I'm now a Bachelor of Music!) and I'm about to start a one-year teaching course. I've migrated to Tumblr for the most part, and I just simply haven't been uploading things or checking messages. Now that I'm looking, I feel pretty bad about leaving you all hanging, and I'm sorry about that. I will go through and answer comments.

I've unsubscribed from dA because I wasn't using it enough for it to be worth my money, but I may resubscribe if it becomes useful again - for example, if I want to do commissions.

I will (try to remember to) upload a few pictures I've done this year, and there is a cake coming soon. But honestly, I'm not going to make any promises about how much I'll use the site. If I am to come back here I'll need to clear out a lot my backlog (12,175 messages, whooooh), and frankly I don't have much time to spare.

If anyone would like my Tumblr url, please send me a note and we can swap urls. :)

Take care!

Hi! I'm Lutra. I'm a trainee teacher, and enjoy drawing, painting, composing, performing in ensembles, writing, reading and video games when time allows it (which it rarely does, hence my general inactivity).
