Skitters Reference Sheet

'Bout time this dude got some proper reference material.

Skitter Color Arrangement

Skitters can come in any color and (theoretically) pattern (though he prefers galaxies and stars). No reason not to get wild with it.

Hopefully this will end up being part of a larger ref sheet I'm building for him.


I'm so itchy to get home and work on skitters. I have a lot more detailing to do and a good plan for going about it. But I'm stuck in gas station hell for 3 more hours >:(

You could say I got the jitters for Skitters.

WIP I'm fussing with on stream. Hopefully those beautiful galaxies will make an apperance eventually.

I realized today while at work theres something I've never drawn digitally, and I just got a new tablet....

so, prepare for skitters


Sketches I did the other day trying to drum up another idea for a skitters painting. While I didn’t start on any of these, I am really wanting to do the top left most skitter and the one with the glasses.

Also feat. Billy looking real funky.

@star-rice hello yes I animated skitters


star-rice -

HOLY SHIT IM IN LOVE. This looks incredible dude! I'm also just fucking floored anyone would put in the incredible work required to animate anything, much less one of my babes. Thank you so much, he looks awesome!


Sometimes he’s like a depressed peep

(pictured text under the cut)

“oh fuck, I’m melting...”

”ha... ha...” splashing

”if you can’t find any puddles naturally, home made is fine”


since he’s a voidling, sometimes he very much prefers oversaturated star patterns.

the entire piece is about the length of my index finger.


feat. Cybil (long eared bitch), Zachariah (beaky bitch) and a bunch of skitters. The black figures are the alt. form I was talking about (bc he’s a merge of several ideas/charas). That’s the mostly featureless void person. Then I made him anthro bc you can always be furry on main.

Im also in love with the tiny skitters, even the one thats sort of squirrel like at the bottom. He’s just a mood.

I compulsively shade in skitter when he’s in any sort of humanoid form, i’ve noticed. When he’s just ye old bird I dont care, but he’s gotta be full of void and stars if he’s got arms.

There are downsides to shading in like that tho. It gonna look bad in about a week for one (it’ll rub off on the back of the previous page), but also shading something in (and it not looking like garbage) takes more time and effort than I care to put in. Markers might be a huge boon for this. I might start carrying one of hte grey ones. I’m already glad I brought my gel pen for the little details an eraser can never scrub white again.


lovecubus asked:

PLEASE tell me more about scitters. he is lad.

scitters. Well, he doesn't have a name and thats as good as a call as he's got so I think I might have to adopt that as well.

Unfortunately I don't have much more info about skitters (I think I like the spelling with a k more?) since yesterday's doodles are about as far as I've gotten thought wise, but I do have these earlier sketches from about July of last year (which I didn't reference at all yesterday) to really show how much of his shape I've retained.

* - i use the word in 100 diff sets of quotations because its art and you can't really fuck up so much as not achieve what you want. And even then, if you don't get the effect you want, you're likely to still have learned from the experience itself. This is more of me trying not to beat myself into not doing art.

I did it. I did a draw. Take my draw. Im moderately happy with the scitters doodle and I’ll likely expand on the orbular orca pigeon in the future.

For the moment though, this has been an OC thats been floating around my head for 2 years? He crops up every 6 months or so and I gotta draw him. He’s simplistically shaped and Idk I just love his form.

While drawing I did some thinking about hiim on other aspects, esp bc I’ve never drawn him in color (only sketches). I think I wanna merge him with another weird ass character thats barely seen the light of day. He’d be a shapeshifter. Just so he can take both forms. I feel like he just prefers the bird form a lot though. As per colors, the character he’s merged with is a voidling dude so he’s just stars and void, but he’d probably default to any solid color (probably neutrals) most of the time so he doesn’t seem like a weird ass.

Also, have fun reading my handwriting in that pic.

Here’s a close up of the scitters.
