I drew Robin’s character, Serk! So chosen because she’s an attractive female character who represents Scorpio, which is my sign.
I was suggested to draw something Luigi’s Mansion-related so I’m commemorating the release of Dark Moon with this picture!
A Moldyman, minion and child of the moldwitch. With her powers she brings these strange, unstable creatures into the world. They usually grow from small food items into larger beings; the foodstuff that the Moldyman formed around is considered its ‘heart’ and is usually its weakpoint. This Moldyman happens to have three.

So every now and then I’ve been brainstorming for more ideas for this little head-story. Currently, it’s called “Jump Don’t Die!”, mostly because it’s a name I had been meaning to give something, and also because it’s offbeat and therefore cool. Don’t judge me.
The two characters depicted are Reggie Foster and Tammy Long. They’re two 16-year-olds in high school who don’t really fit in with everyone else and hang out with each other all the time. They are super platonic best friends who were actually born on the same exact day, so they’re kind of like SOOOUL TWINS. They mostly sit around doing geeky things like making comic books.
Reggie Foster is a nice, often adorkable guy who is passionate about the things he enjoys. He likes Star Wars and collects memorabilia. Out of the two, he is probably the more sociable, but he still prefers to geek out by himself or with Tammy. His family is somewhat well off and his parents are quite lax and accommodating of his interests. He has a little brother and sister and looks after them. He is either asexual or simply oblivious to attractive women, but conversely, he has a feminist streak and enjoys writing strong female characters and often roleplays as them when they play tabletop games or whatever they do. He writes the comic books that he and Tammy make, usually speaking aloud with random train-of-thought ideas that he just ‘thinks would be awesome’, like robot tyrannosaurs and such.
Tammy Long is somewhat of a fussbudget, though not to a fault. She simply has a slightly sarcastic and cynical streak and tends to point out the illogical. However, she tends to play along with Reggie’s ideas and is accepting of his geekiness. Her parents, who came from Hong Kong, are major Ameriphiles and act like perpetual tourists, embarrassing her sometimes. Though not in poverty, she’s somewhat poorer than Reggie and her family buys tacky things she knows they can’t really afford. Her big sister April, who she’s close to, is currently away in college. She plays Game Boy a lot and has a habit of hiding in her jacket like a turtle or doing similar things that will obscure her mouth. She has a few secret shames, like her constantly-changing celebrity crushes. When role playing, she tends to create male characters. She is an exceptional artist, and when the two make comics, she gladly (though maybe with an eye-roll) brings Reggie’s ideas to life.
By the way, they mostly only wear those school jackets when they’re actually at school. The school sort of gave them away because they’re itchy and not very comfortable, and they’re one of the very few kids who would actually wear them. Reggie almost never does outside of school, though Tammy does in the winter because it’s the only jacket she has. Most of the time they wear geeky t-shirts like in the top right picture. (Also, I’m sorry if those realistic portraits are kind of creepy. Heh.)
They will often hang out at Reggie’s house and watch a movie or marathon a TV show or play a video game or something like that. However, there’s a catch. By some supernatural catalyst, they will often end up inside the work they were digesting, and will usually have to escape by using their knowledge of tropes to make things play out differently, or find an exit, or something like that. This can often lead to them finding themselves in very weird and existential sort of dilemmas, but they usually get themselves out of it. ‘Jump, Don’t Die!’ tends to be a very fitting phrase that can capture the essence of the kind of decisions they have to make.
There’s a third character who is some kind of tiny, six-inch-tall supernatural trickster guy and he tends to just raid their fridge and hang out without saying much. He’s not really the source of the weirdness that goes on around them; he could very well be just a product of it, considering he only showed up after their first misadventure… but he always seems to end up accompanying them thereafter, or just showing up at some point in their incredibly meta adventures. He seems to have an almost limitless knowledge of tropes, and they get the feeling that he could be a god… only if he wanted to. He’s like the Great Gazoo but a lot less annoying.
There’s another, annoying guy who goes to the same school as Reggie and Tammy. He only shows up rarely, but when he does he’s annoying. He’s probably a bigger geek than either of them, and always acts like he has the right idea what to do and will often recount a work where ‘he’s seen this kind of thing before’. But when push comes to shove, he ends up being a load who drags them down more than anything.
There are some other characters too, probably, like other people from the school they go to that get roped in from time to time. I haven’t really developed any of them, though.
This is all mostly just stuff in my headspace and will likely not be fully realized any time soon. It’s just a fun thing I do in my spare time. Thanks to Jordan N. for brainstorming with me and coming up with a considerable amount of this, though.
doodles of a d&d character i made once
She’s Utah Sawyer, a chaotic neutral human rogue. She is book smart and knows a lot of skillz and tricks, but doesn’t always have good common sense. She is super CHARISMATIC. Also, she’s acrobatic, and super flexible. Like Catwoman. If she lived in fantasy land. She spends her time going around having daring adventures and finding treasure and sometimes she robs people, but she won’t rob you if you’re old or sick or broke or homeless or a kid because that’s not nice. Also she is very morally adverse to killing, so if you kill people or are generally evil she will probably ruin you somehow.
