Two anthro creatures--a mantis and a stegosaurus--play a Street Fighter game at the arcade. The lighting is dim and soft blue/purple.

Another cute lil' pic of my and my friend's sonas! Of course we pretty much live in opposite sides of the world, so going to an arcade together in real life is unlikely, so it's all the more fun to depict hanging out via our anthro counterparts!

I was so excited to see the news at E3 that there's going to be a Switch remake of Advance Wars 1 & 2! I have so many fond memories of playing those games on my GBA when I was young. Sure, I was never good enough at tactics games to BEAT them, but they were still lots of fun to play, and I loved the characters!

I especially have fond memories of making custom maps in AW2 and playing VS Mode against my brother during long car trips and things with the family. It's a really nostalgic game to me, and the trailer for the remake brought back a lot of those emotions, so I KNOW I'll be buying it at some point when it comes out!

In the meantime, the hype compelled me to start drawing some of my favorite characters from the series. I plan on drawing my favorite commander from each continent (and Black Hole), but for now, here's Grit from Blue Moon and Kanbei from Yellow Comet. Cannot WAIT to see these handsome lads again.


What's with me and drawing robots in dramatic lighting xD Anywho Happy Rockman day!

I love that the vibrant pink color was used on its mouth. The intensity of the color visually depicts how LOUD this pokémon is!

I'm from a country with nasty summers and can't stand seeing others suffering from extreme heat, so here goes nothing

42foxesontherun

some things might be centric to my country, but see the title. I'm Catherine and I want to help.

  1. stay hydrated. not going to say "drink water" because some people just don't like water. but drink something, please.
  2. air conditioning sounds good, until your electricity bills are up the roof. it's preferable to have an electric fan. R. sometimes does a thing where she puts an iced water bottle in front of the fan for extra refreshment.
  3. this one's a little impossible for me, but might be useful for you all: loose-fitting clothing. preferably light colored, and made of cotton or linen. polyester doesn't breathe and tight clothes keeps the heat close to the body.
  4. take two showers per day, or even more, if you need to.
  5. place a wet rag on your forehead.

if anyone can add more, please do.

i just splash some water on top of my head before i leave. no one outside cares your hair is wet trust me, but it prevents your head from sunstrokes. also it dries quickly. summer hats are cool too


coffee

In places with high humidity try to stay in the shade as much as possible, bring an umbrella with you everywhere if you have to

Also if you do end up drinking a lot of water to stay hydrated make sure to eat snacks too, you lose a Lot of salt when you sweat

Sunscreen! Sunscreen! Sunscreen! SPF 30 or more!

Especially if you have fair skin like I do Keep That Sun Off Your Skin. Nothing dries you up like a bad sunburn does, not to mention the risk of skin cancer and all that

On that note, sunglasses. Won't really help you stay cool but it will save your eyes from damage.

Be wary of heat exhaustion and heatstroke.

The signs of heat exhaustion include:

  • a headache
  • dizziness and confusion
  • loss of appetite and feeling sick
  • excessive sweating and pale, clammy skin
  • cramps in the arms, legs and stomach
  • fast breathing or pulse
  • a high temperature of 38C or above
  • being very thirsty

If someone has heat exhaustion, follow these 4 steps:

  1. Move them to a cool place.
  2. Get them to lie down and raise their feet slightly.
  3. Get them to drink plenty of water. Sports or rehydration drinks are OK.
  4. Cool their skin – spray or sponge them with cool water and fan them. Cold packs around the armpits or neck are good, too.

Stay with them until they're better. If they don't recover after 30 minutes, call emergency services.

It’s 3am at a Denny’s. You shouldn’t be here. You should be at home, or in a hotel room, or an airbnb, or even your car with the seats sloped back as far as they’ll go and a jacket crumpled under your head in a sad excuse for a pillow. Something. Anything. Anywhere, but here. Sitting in a soft booth seat across the table from a smile with teeth that have far too sharp an edge.

You try not to look at it. There’s other things to focus on if you force yourself to take interest in them. The waitress looks to be in her late 50s. Her hair is in a tight pony tail that is beginning to fly out of its band. You don’t know if she knows. It’d be rude to say anything, and it doesn’t matter, since you don’t think anyone else in here is awake enough to notice it. The trucker at the table near the bathroom has his hat pulled low and the dark circles of his trade under his eyes. He’s sipping at a cup of coffee but he doesn’t really comprehend that it’s there. He won’t for a few minutes. Then the caffeine will hit him and open his eyes and he’ll notice the waterstained handprints at the bathroom door frame and the patterns the leftover granules form in the bottom of his cup. Instant coffee. He doesn’t like instant coffee. You don’t know this but you think this because you don’t know anyone that does like it.

Rolento from Street Fighter sits at a seaside bar with a tiny cocktail at his side. The text caption reads:

Mostly drew this to practice drawing poses/backgrounds/animated screenshot style pics, BUT ALSO I really like Rolento's "vacation" skin in Street Fighter 4 and wanted to draw it in a sexy way.

I wonder what's going on here... Is he acting extra friendly to the target of his mission, to put them at ease and coax out some classified information? Or could he really be on a hot date right now, hoping to buy his crush a fancy drink?

I really like how it turned out, though I don't have quite as much fun inking such thin lines, so I might go back over it again and line/paint it in my usual style later!

Drawing of Sodom and Rolento from Street Fighter. Sodom is standing with his hands pressed together, in front of a pink backdrop with a pattern of sushi and hearts. In a tiny word bubble, Rolento is shown with a blank expression. The image is overall brightly colored and hopefully gives off cute vibes!

I had no specific ideas in my head with this drawing, so I don't know what kind of scenario is going on here, but I was craving to draw my favorite criminals again!

Hi my name is Coffee and I would very much like to get out of Georgia ;O;

To make a long story short my family has gotten toxic to be around and I'm trying to raise as much money as I can to move out and get to Colorado. Right now my goal is $1000 cause that's the minimum I'll need to cover gas and a U-Haul trailer.

Message me if you're interested!

Check out my art tag if you want to see more examples of my work!

Wanna help but don't have a lot of money? Buy me a coffee, every little bit helps!

A few more silly expressions practice pics, this time featuring characters from another fighting game I love, ARMS! Biff in particular already looks like an emoji, so you can't go wrong with giving him a wacky expression!

I've been following the Emoji Mashup Bot on Twitter for a while, and it just now occurred to me that those wacky emoji combos could be great drawing reference to practice with depicting funny expressions.

Here's Nash from Street Fighter V, but I have a little extra free time this week, so I'd be glad to take more requests for drawing characters/expressions if you folks want! Any fandom is fine.
