Oooh, shiny



The Storyboard - 019 by RickGriffin
The Storyboard - 019

Lily and Mira fix a private security ani-droid, who in this case happens to have a male chassis. Male ani-droids do exist, but since it often raises the general question “Why is it a male?” after years of female as standard, male ani-droids tend to be used more as a status symbol than for quality.

Since his CPU and memory was undamaged, he is awake here, relating the events and problems he had following the incident, to help better locate damaged points.

Anidroidclass-plus by RickGriffin
A thing I did today!

Something I realize I’ve made part of the Ani-droids universe, but have not expounded on much, are the different classes of ani-droids beyond the common personal ani-droid like Lily.

These classifications are not necessarily 100 percent stock—Custodes-class ani-droids could, for instance, be equipped with lots of expensive non-lethal weaponry methods for law enforcement*, lighter subdual methods for private security, tools alone for for fire and rescue, and so on. The “base model” of Custodes-class, however, contains the presumption that a number of tools will be built-in, and that the personality will be authoritative to civilians and responsive to human commanders.

Will go in scraps later

* (the reason the Custodes class actually wear clothes is in part for the uniform, and in part to cover the areas where the arms and such separate into weapon modes, where there would be obvious seams)

The Storyboard - 018

Dogmen universe. One I haven't touched on much because I hadn't settled on a look that would be appropriate for the setting. It took me two days to settle on something I could work from.

If you've seen anything I've drawn FOR this universe you might know it has a horror focus. Yet I'm still absurdly interested in how characters deal with and rely on each other in those kinds of crises.

I do have a lot to say on the nature of dark thoughts, though I don't know if I should get into it; suffice to say, I think exploring darkness is necessary. Not for its own sake, but because digging in and facing terrible things helps us think more clearly about them later. It's not for everyone. But it's worth dipping your toes into.

Also if you've seen any previous pictures of Arthur, he's been vastly redesigned, as his old design was basically a precursor to Charli, who I ended up drawing more, so she owns that look now.

If I decided to post (not-pornographic) nudity, what would you think? Example: 

842 deviants said Awesome, go for it
260 deviants said I guess it's fine but I don't have an opinion
41 deviants said I'd be severely disappointed, I thought you were better than that
38 deviants said This is a bad road to go down, you'll be snorting cocaine off hookers' abdomens before you know it
36 deviants said I'd be disappointed, but things change so okay
24 deviants said I crave lusty bodies and will probably bug you to make my fetishes manifest/attempt to RP with your characters in-comment
23 deviants said There's no such thing as non-pornographic nudity
10 deviants said I have no idea what this means help

Sorry if I'm missing something really obvious when asking this, but do you do commissions? I'm building up a fantasy world for my novel, and I think it'd be great to see one of my wolf-creatures in your style.

Love Housepets! by the way! :D

Uh, hey Rick, I know this isn't the best way to send you a message, but I don't have a better one available though so...
I seem to be having trouble getting to the Housepets! website. I'm on an iPhone, if that gives you any hints as to the cause of the problem.

Edit: and three hours later it works!

Hey Rick!! Big fan of your work but I would like to know the prices for a commision or request like a simple picture but no color. I would like to know if it was free or how much it would cost.

Hey Rick, I am huge fan of your work, and a huge fan of DC comics. I am currently writing a series of superhero origin stories, and your character Marrow gave me an idea. So I was wondering if you could give me Marrow's height and weight, then we will be all set.
RickGriffin Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I haven't super definitively set everyone's height/weight yet, but Marrow is probably somewhere around 6' 10" and 500 lbs (mostly muscle)

I finally figured out what state your nude characters could hang out in and not get arrested.  Apparently, in the state of Kansas, it is perfectly legal to walk around naked in public as long as you are not trying to solicit sex while doing so.

Yes, I know your characters are in their own universes, but I think having them hang around in Topeka or Kansas City (well, the part that is in Kansas) would make things interesting.
