Doodle of an old Dano concept
Husk was kind enough to let me color and line a doodle she drew for me of drell!Dano. Again, thank you so much! Had a lot of fun *u*
Original sketch here~
OFF inspired me to try out some wacky styling with my existing characters UuU. Subject used here is Dano. I think variation A is my preferred one. Stays more true to his character in a way. I wanna do this for a few more characters. No time for that tonight, though.
Happy Birthday, Skelle!
It’s still technically your birthday IN AMERICA, which is the only place that matters.
Wait what how come I never fucking reblogged this get on my blog
Lalochezia - The use of abusive language to relieve stress or ease pain.
It wasn’t a hard kick—Dano wasn’t really trying to hurt him—but Eyeburn’s leg crumpled like wet tissue and he went down in a heap.
Dano skittered backwards, expecting retaliation, but the older salarian wasn’t moving. He tilted his head, unsure if it was some kind of trick; Taska had pulled something similar on him more than once, leaping up when he tried to go for her pockets. Wait, no, Eyeburn was moving—his shoulders were shaking, and Dano could discern quick, harsh exhales.
“Why the fuck did you do that, Dano?” he said through clenched teeth. He wasn’t looking up; aside from raising himself on his elbows, he was still in the same position that he’d hit the ground in.
“Whoa, hey, I didn’t do nothing, you just fell—uh, are you alright?” Okay, it definitely wasn’t his best lie, and judging by Eyeburn’s incredulous expression when he finally whipped his head around to stare Dano in the eye, he thought so too. His face was drawn tight and pale, but there wasn’t as much anger in his eye as there was flat-out pain.
Dano started to feel a twist of guilt; it was unfamiliar. He didn’t like it one bit.
“Well, I guess my foot kinda slipped! A-and maybe it kinda hit your leg.” He crossed his arms, looking down on Dimmel like he dared him to argue. But Dimmel wasn’t even looking at him anymore; instead he was pressing his forehead to the ground and closing his eyes. What the shit, did he hit his head when he fell or something? If Dano booked it now, maybe he could get far enough away and call the fatass to go pick Dimmel up.
But Dimmel was taking deep breaths, slowing the rate of his gasps to something almost normal, until he finally cracked one eye open again.
“Why did you do that, Dano?” He still didn’t sound mad. Was he just trying to get Dano to come in closer?
“I didn’t—” Dimmel’s expression flattened. Alright, lying clearly wasn’t working. “You never swear and it’s really fucking weird!”
“You tried to cripple me because I don’t swear enough?”
“Well I didn’t think you were gonna just—” Dano made an expansive gesture with his arms, like a tree falling and exploding.
“No, I don’t think you thought at all.” He couldn’t place the expression on Dimmel’s face; it was a little anger, a little disgust, a little—no, that couldn’t be sadness. Still a lot of pain, though.
“Look—sorry, alright? Whatever,” Dano huffed, throwing up his hands. He didn’t like the stupid pang of guilt he was feeling, or the strange look Dimmel was giving him. “I’m outta here.”
“No.” Dimmel half-sat up, making a strangled groan when he did. “You don’t—shit—you don’t get to drop me like that and waltz out. Go to the freezer, there’s an icepack in there. And then you get to help me to the couch. And I can promise that you’re going to hear me swear a lot more.”
Style meme featuring Dano
After about a month of neglecting this damn thing, I finally managed to finish it! Picked this little meme up on FA. Very fun to do!
I’ll upload the full sized versions of these soon enough, along with the rejected sketches.
So it’s your birthday huh Skelle? I don’t know you very well but I have always admired your art and Salarian.
I tried speed painting him… it’s the thought that counts right? ^^;
