Behold my strange range of art! From snakes, to the Animals of Farthing Wood and AdderXSinuous, to "Bone" and its Rat Creatures, to photos of my critters, to random fanart and giftart.

For snakes, quiche, and happiness!

Random Favourites

Favorites. Stuff I liked. Drawn by friends and other people. I think you can work out what 'favorites' are.
I am terrible at updating...should have done it at least twice or three times since the last one.

But basically, I got my Associate of Arts, and a job working at Kohls. Might need a second one because they're not getting me on schedule enough.

But this is sort of a sequel to the last because we just got a new foster baby. This one much, much older than the one who didn't make it, in fact she can eat some solid food. I'll have a picture of her at another point later. She doesn't have a name yet either.

Imitation by Bat-Snake
Imitation
I wanted to test doodle my theory that Utroms have crops (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crop_(an… ). I had previously assumed Utroms couldn’t nurse their young simply because there didn’t seem space for it. Then Professor Obligato remembering his infancy with his mother made me question it. So I’m assuming that they have crops right under their skin, which wraps around their back to their front, replacing both mammary glands and body fat. Most of the time, it’s a nutrient reserve, but the crop wall can soften up and split after an Utrom has given birth. At that point, the liquid can seep out through the skin. Usually, nursing takes place near the front legs, but the crop can break just about anywhere, including the base on their backs; it just hurts a lot more there.

I tested it with a small Utrom family - namely a single parent with two children, one of which is a newborn baby. Unless they’re just on parental leave and their mate is elsewhere. The older kid is trying to play the good ol’ imitation game with their doll, but as always, it isn’t quite working out. Meanwhile, there must be some kind of news report on. Maybe Emperor Quanin is doing a dumb thing…

Emote!
I noticed Ch'rell only has only has a very limited expression range, and most of them consist on scowling, screaming, and villainous cackling. My philosophy is that when your villain's emotional range is that limited, something is wrong. That's probably why both the 87 Krang and IDW Krang have some points against him. 87 Krang's emotional range was so broad that he was a fun character, even if he lacked the more rounded intent of his IDW counterpart. He's allowed to emote and to be legitimately upset to the point of tears. He gets at his most upset when his inventions literally blow up in his face; I've noticed that to be his breaking point in stress. At one point, he outright sobs while cursing the turtles after getting blown back by his own machine after Donnie tampered with it. IDW Krang wants to save the very last of his species and create a new home for them, even at the cost of his own life. He's a "lawful evil"; his goals are empathetic but his path to get what he wants isn't quite right. 

So while Ch'rell had the longest and most violent rep sheet (see this doublekatana.tumblr.com/post/9… ), he doesn't really have a motivation for anything he did besides "revenge" (for what???), and that is hindered even more by a fairly stilted range of emotion. While he was a much more violent character, it doesn't really hold up...especially compared to both Krangs and even the 2012 Shredder. We know very, very little about him besides the war crimes charged against him, but I highly doubt it was those three alone, and his core motivation was never discussed.

So I went to remedy Ch'rell's emotional stunting, especially considering that I want to do a Wicked-esque story centered on him. Make my own interpretation for his motivations. Somehow I came out with most of the expressions and postures unintentionally sex-related except for the two that are. I wanted to experiment with anything that wasn't anger. Namely joy, sorrow, and pleasure. 

Not sure what would get him that fricking happy, though.

Slightly Drunk by Bat-Snake
Slightly Drunk
Mortu had spent a long week in space; Ch'rell finally came to the end of a laborious plan given to him by the Council, which he secretly intended to coincide with the more nefarious plots of "Duke Acureds". At last there was a window of opportunity to enjoy an evening. Retreating to their bed proved to be moot after too much wine, though they would rue and lament their decision to remain on the bench at the end of their revelry.

I'M GOING IN. I'm getting close to smut land! But this is as far as dA will let me go. 

I also really wanted to draw Ch'rell emoting more than scowling or screaming. And I will continue to do so. This is just the start.

Ch'rtu sketches
And off I go to, creeping my way to smut!

I did this when I was still trying to work with the Utrom design by the 2003 show, and realized it wasn't going to work in my favor.

And as for the smut bit, Ch'rell strikes me as one who gets off a little to fast at being the "receiver" (I am sorry for not knowing the appropriate term?), but he takes it first anyway because it makes his turn a little more exhilarating. He also tends to initiate.

He's okay; I haven't watched any of the movies in years, so I wouldn't have much to say.

I would prefer if you didn't make conversation on my actual page; if you want to talk, send me a note...but also do it if you really need to speak to me about something

Hey Katie I've been thinking about what you about putting my ideas into one big story and I decided to make my own Season 4. However I might copy and paste the Reunion stories into the Season.
