I write sad stories (with hope!) and then animate them in cute pastels to lull you into a false sense of security.

Bleak-Creep's News

Posted by Bleak-Creep - February 11th, 2022


I see other folks do posts like these every so often, and as someone who frequents the undiscovered artists portal, I feel like I should really be doing a little more to help some of these people out because many of them are insanely talented. I also feel like I should just post little updates more often maybe. So we'll do a little of that after we get through this list of people. This gonna be a long one by the way....feel free to just skip around however you like.


I wanted to start off this list with someone I'll always see around when I'm looking for new people to scout; they've usually already commented on something that I thought was really cool and I secretly wonder if they think of me as some kind of scouting poacher, but I will admit defeat, @VulpsVulps you're better at finding cool new artists than I.


VulpsVulps seems like a good way to start the list because I feel like they're very underappreciated themselves and not only do they do a lot of great behind the scenes work, their pixel art and animations are fantastic.



Another cool pixel artist I've encountered is @pixelroger who does these great surreal, fantastic sorts of structures and characters. It's all very cryptic, mysterious stuff, and I wanna get to know that world a little better every time I see any of their new pieces.



Anyone who knows me well enough will tell you that I love both creepy and cute things in equal measure, and @BeesforEveryone has found such a perfect balance in doing just that in these adorable portraits of horror icons. I love them all, but these are a couple of my favorites so far.



To continue on with my love for cute, simple designs and vibrant colors, both @julimye and @pineapplegrenader really scratch that itch for me. Julimye for their impeccably rendered Astro Boy-esque characters, and Pineapplegrenader for their distinctive, soft, and absolutely gorgeous sense of style. Here's a couple favorites from each of their galleries.




I feel like no one should have less fans than pieces published when they're all this good, but @MetaGrif has dozens upon dozens of these earth shatteringly cool character designs that just haven't received the kind of attention they deserve.



I definitely have more artists I could share, but I think I'll wait a bit later on to write more. Check out the undiscovered art portal from time to time though (Uh, just be sure to turn off M-A rated stuff or you might get bombarded with fetishes)


-----

As far as personal updates go, I've been making good progress (ie: I have just barely started animating) on Us Chapter 4, and I don't think I should have any trouble in finishing it before the end of the year. I'm really excited to finally close out this story after working on it for the past three years, but it's been a great run, and I can tell I've been improving an as animator with each new episode.


I don't talk usually give out too many details about my private life here, but Us was always a story very close to my heart (I'm a trans woman myself) and writing for it has allowed me to work through a lot of difficult subjects. I write them for me, the people I'm closest with, and the people who work on the shorts with me, but it really means a lot to have other folks outside of that sphere get something out of it too. So thank you to anyone who's been watching these things, and I'm sorry I'm so very slow.


I think that's all for now, but I'm gonna make a conscious effort to post more often. Oh wait, one more thing! Join this gay collab (It's actually real and I desperately want it to succeed)

The latest episode of the LGBTQ romance series, Us - Chapter 3 is finally out and ready for your viewing consumption. WATCH IT HERE!


As a fair warning, it is very, very sad. But I have attempted to alleviate some of that angst by commissioning my bf (see more of his art here) to make a portrait of the couple at the bottom of this post, and I've also made a bunch of sketches of some outtakes and (mostly lighter) moments that happened outside of the animations themselves


Also, give @Quarl some love for taking some time out of her Jamuary schedule (where she makes a song a day for every day in the month of January) to crank out another wonderful score for this series


Anyway, I hope you enjoy, and if you haven't started the series yet, here's that episode 1 link too

Hello there, how's it going?


To celebrate the spirit of the holidays, and because I'm nearing completion on my latest animation, I think I'll give away a couple free character design slots (or redraws of a character you already have) All you need to do for a chance to get one is to be on my followers list and leave a comment below with a character description, or a link to your character, and I'll pick out a pair at the end of the week to flesh out into a finished piece.


If there aren't too many requests, or if they're not too in depth I might even do a few more or just do a couple sketches for those that didn't get a full piece.


As usual, I'll draw pretty much anything outside of anything too explicit/NSFW.


***Edit 1

Hoo boy, already quite a few replies in here. Tell you what, for anyone who doesn't get a full piece, I'll put together a little sketch dump and tag everyone with a character in there once it's done. I'll post this little Amongus animation for anyone who wanted one of those later today too. <3


***Edit 2 - A couple little sketches

AMONGUS. (in two versions) for @Einmeister and @Aronchalk

KITTY for @dababy445

***Edit 3

So many requests, oof! I’ve got my work cut out for me. There’s definitely a few I’m pretty inspired with, and a few others that should be quick enough where I’ll probably get to them soon, but remember, you’ll need to be on my followers list in order to make a request!


For @M-kirbs

For @Ducksen

For @Inciniumz2

***Edit 4

Apparently I can't drop any more images into the post, but here's more sketches!


Zeddman for 0544014

Animu for reddyfu

OC for uraomote

Sid? or Yaki? for @lucas-draws

Robot Cowboy for Neonshambles

Billy for ReallyR4ndom

Ekibus Explorer for dogmuth-behedog

Arlean for Baconbob9000

Poipole for Chaseryle


***Edit 5

...and we're done! Thanks to everyone who made a request, and I hope you all enjoy your holidays!

Eh, why not? I can take on 3-4 commission slots if anyone is interested. Backgrounds can be something simple, but these would more be character arts. I won't do anything NSFW, but I'll make them cheap for ya. Send me a PM if you wanna reserve something (turnaround will probably be 1-2 weeks at most)


-PRICES-

$5 for a quick pencil sketch

$10 if you want some digital lineart

$20 for a fully rendered piece


-EXAMPLE-

Seems pretty cute, and I can't believe it, but I already got "attacked" on there once. (see!) I think I'll attempt to work on at least a few of my own contributions here soon, but I rarely ever do art trades or drawing other people's characters, so I'm kind of excited about it.


In other news, I've just barely, barely started animating Us - Chapter 3, so I might start to post a few screenshots for here and there as I make a bit more progress.


I think that's about all I've got. This is my art fight account by the way. (In making this I've also noticed I rarely draw any of my characters more than once unless they're for a specific story I'm working on)

I just posted my latest cartoon, which is the first in a coming of age series with LGBTQIA+ themes. Give it a watch!

Titled Piracy Is Not a Victimless Crime, it's the story of a boy who develops an addiction to the glue of envelopes after a traumatic experience as a child. Please, watch it, and enjoy.
