This might sound like a silly question 😅 but do you have ideas for what The depth of heaven characters voices sound like?
This is hard for me because I can only answer it with english dub anime characters and I know dubs are for stinky losers but that’s me okay 😭
I feel like Adam is the easiest for me lol but I think something like Christian Bale as Howl would work! Or Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop…
For Lloyd I can’t think of a character that’s very close but I feel like he speaks like Ginko from Mushishi…but Ginko’s voice is deeper…he usually talks in a pretty flat tone but he gets snippy if you bug him too much!
Keizo was inspired by Kiryu so I can’t help imagining he sounds like him in Japanese lmao but for an english voice I think Laurence Fishburne works 🤔 I don’t have a character in mind but Keizo’s voice is real deep n rumbly. The character I’m most familiar with is Morpheus but Keizo doesn’t speak as eloquently as him hehehe
For Koa hmmm Suigetsu! From Naruto!
Puzzle sounds like hmmm Kurenai! Not her first voice actor da second
Static sounds like Mark Hamill as Goro Majima but less crazy lol
June sounds like…u! 😳 idk she’s a stand in for the reader
I don’t imagine their voices to sound exactly like existing voice actors but I tried to choose ones that sound close to how I imagine emmmm!
lowkey...if u were to make like videos of ur art process or even streamed a bit, I’d watch :,) ily and ur art and ur characters and u
AKJSDASKLJHDK that’s so sweet……..thank u 🥺 I’m glad u like my shiiiiiiiT!!!!!!!!!! 😭 MAN I often do wish I could stream! If I had a mic and better internet and a more convenient location I would! but it’d be really embarrassing cuz I fumble with my sketches for hours until it looks okay like I never learned how to do construction or anything…………………………but I guess I wouldn’t mind showing the colouring…also I’d probably reveal how dumb I am…ugh! 😩 hopefully someday! It looks fun!
I love how unhinged ur followers are, everytime I get a notif from u it's always a fun game of either 'ur art is incredible can we have lore!?♡' or 'I want to fucked so hard by ur art that my lower intestine burst out of my ear.♡' and sometimes it's both and I think thats beautiful
WAAAAAAH I KNOW UGH like omg tmi xd but 😳 I feel like for the past year I’ve slowly been sinking into a depression and I’m tryna fight it everyday and my most precious followers n their asks are the only tings givin’ me any serotonyYYYYYYYYYYAAAAA IT MAKES ME FEEL ALIIIIIVE 😫 I’m so very pleased and appreciative that ppl are liking and enjoying not jus my art but my ocs!!an askin’ for more!!! like I made dat! wit my brain n my hands! and u like it?!?!??! Thank u so much anon….and all the peepo who’ve sent me asks………big kissy for all my followers muAH
Bro fucking keizo in a cramped storage closet and he's just like uses you like a Fleshlight BRO!! but like in the middle of the day and it's hella busy and you can just hear people going about their day and someone trys to open the door but keizo has you pressed against the door and with his hand over your mouth and like BRO IM THINKING ABOUT THIS TOO MUCH OMFG IM FUCKING SCREAMING!!!!!!!!!
NOOOO I WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE THIS H*RNY FOR MY OWN CHARACTERS NO FUCK NO FUCK AAAAAAAAAAH I’M SCREAMING TOO
do u have any random facts or things about Depth of heaven and ur characters (sfw or nsfw 🤭) even if what you want never comes to light, I really enjoy reading the concepts and asks about ur OCs
Hehehe I haven’t thought about the characters and their story in a long time, until recently…but I never put a huge amount of thought into them before either! I kinda just knew I…wished I could make something cool that had everything I wanted in that kind of game lmao. Even if it doesn’t happen, I felt like I wanted there to be twists and secrets…if it never happens then nobody but me will ever know about them, huh! But, if it does happen then I’ll spoil stuff for later! What to do…ah I’ll share about it! But I’m giving it a spoiler warning for something that doesn’t exist anyway lmao
Also I’m not a writer or a scientist this is all wacky world rules ok xd also there might be inconsistencies idk I never wrote anything down
In high school June and Puzzle were da weeaboos who listened to vocaloid on their phones at lunch. Puzzle wore cat ears, big headphones, and tutus to school. I think….I decided that because of her old bad design lmao. I thought I had a drawing of her in cat ears but I can’t find it 😔 June prolly just wore hoodies and graphic t-shirts. They were each others prom dates! June wore a tux!
Okay spoilery stuff ahead!
I have a general idea what I want the story to be, but right now I just see it as disjointed scenes in my head. I posted some June and Puzzle wearing dresses where I wanted a scene to happen in a casino on the ship. Cruise ship casinos are kinda lame though lol, but it’ll be as big and cool as I want >:•3 and it’s an excuse to have everyone in cool formal wear cuz that’s always fun! The cult leader calls for a big party on the ship and everyone has to attend! It’s also where he culls the herd…because not everyone is worthy of going to heaven…apparently
Koa likes playing video games! He’s on the top of the leaderboard for one MMO, and during one event the top prize was blueprints for an in-game item: roller skates! It would make for cool merch to put on your wall or something. There was a rumor among the playerbase that the blueprints could make skates that function as they do in the game. Koa won the prints then used them to custom build his own skates (they look kinda generic now but I haven’t put a lot of thought into their design lmao). The combination of materials used and construction give them a magical quality that allows him to skate faster than any human could! He’s always pushing his limits, and sometimes it gets him in twubble xd
Keizo has an issue with bad dreams…at night he replays all the times in his life where people were rude to him or each other, how he needs to keep peace between them, he just really hates assholes! He has nightmares about them treating him badly and there’s nothing he can do, because at his height and with his strength he’d come off as the bad guy no matter what! They push and push ‘til he’s about to snap…then he wakes up! The rage super heats his blood and his skin glows red and steam pours out his ears! His hair is all wacky cuz it holds it’s shape on the pillow from all the heat lmao June and the rest of them find out about it when they see steam coming out from under his door at night. Don’t wake him up though! If he’s still glowing hot he’ll sleep walk while in a berserk state. First, it makes him really rude himself lmao. He’ll say all the nasty things he won’t when he’s awake! Second, if he sees someone doin’ shit he don’t like, they’re gettin’ these 🤜🤛 In his happy ending you’d see him with his hair flat for the first time wouldn’t that be nice :•3
Adam is always doing experiments on himself, kinda just for shits, kinda because he wants to discover something amazing….!…..?!?!??! When he was younger, his sister, who he loved v much, died. He wanted to become a doctor, not because he wanted to find a cure for the thing that killed his sister…because she died in an accident! He wanted to find a way to make people invincible! He’s always injecting himself with stuff hoping it’ll make him stronger. He likes Keizo as a friend, but to Adam Keizo is a perfect specimen of an indestructable human. Adam’s been fascinated with him for a while, but Keizo also just makes for a good subject for testing against! Also, they met when Adam was studying abroad and Keizo came up on a motorbike and attacked the wheels on Adam’s scooter. Cute! :•) Keizo used to be a bad boy :•( Other experiments Adam’s done: Eyesight like a HAWK Cat ears but for real Jelly bones(?) Longer ween 😳
Lloyd is a stinky tech wiz who likes playing around with AI’s and robotics! He has myassive myega brains and he monitors many of the functions of the ship by himself in his server room. When the captain is captured and thrown off the ship, Lloyd uses his know-how and special accesses to make sure the cult doesn’t make a mess of everything. He knows about and can see everything that happens on the ship…for fun he likes video games toooo! And plays with Koa! He likes buildin’ lil gadgets n tings for fun too! They can come in real handy!
nsfw! Stuff past here!!!!!!!!!
June, Koa, and Lloyd are all inexperienced!
As a lover, Keizo tries to be gentle…but once he gets into it he can be a bit rough! If you’re into it, just enjoy! Or speak up and he’ll slow down! Hmmm I was inspired by a scene from the film Crying Freeman (which I haven’t actually watched 8•|) of some ppl doin’ it in a closet(?)…it’s all dark and cramped and humid and their skin is so shiny and glistening it’s probably the thing that awoken me to drawing people super sweaty. I just can’t help myself 😳 def wanna give Keizo a scene like that. This doodle was inspired by it actually lmao
Adam is patient and gentle! Lots of kisses and verbal reassurance and checking in w/ u. He’s aware of his age and he doesn’t wanna come off badly so he’ll let you do all the pursuing. And June will pursue him hard if she has to! He’s also gonna make you beg and ask, just so he’s sure sure :•) He loves to sit her up on the examining table n do things wit his mouf n fingers 😳 I’d probably make it an option to call him daddy in certain scenarios…up to u if u choose it find out what happens for urself idk 😳😳😳 or don’t
Koa likes to tease you, maybe bully you a lil, but when it comes to intimacy he’s a wimp! I just like the idea of making the bully bend to your will, but he likes it. It just feels good to wipe that cocky smile off his face! Step on him! Make him whimper! I know June’s a virg too, but Koa is just so easy to tease it makes it feel like second nature. BUT the more time they spend together, the more confident Koa becomes. So! Enjoy havin’ him under your thumb while you can cuz it might not last forever!
Lloyd tries to stay composed when June starts showing an interest. He’s usually alone in his server room, but secretly appreciates her company when she comes by. At first he’ll act like he’s too busy. He’s not used to being around women! As his interest in June grows it becomes harder to hide his feelings! So June notices…and teases him! Cuz it’s just so easyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyYYYYYYY 😩 Seeing his serious expression crack when you put ur hands in his pants is lots of fun :•3 And he shows you a voice he’s never shown anyone else before 🤤 He does his research and with your help he’ll learn exactly how to worship u 😌
IF it ever happens there has to b a new game plus where u unlock threesome scenes with Koa/Lloyd and Adam/Keizo :•x
That’s all 4 now! Sorry I’m fuckin’ gross and don’t know how to type :•|
Puzzle looks so pretty but she's also intimidating 🤔😳... I like it!
Hehe when I made her as a kid she was always meant to be that way! She was always the tall protector of her group…I guess I was also thinking her outfit should be scary looking too? 😬 OH NO I remember I wanted her to dress badly on purpose cuz she was a cool girl who didn’t care about what looks good lmao xd but she got better and I’m glad you like her!
I adore your rendering!! The way you make skin and clothing folds look so smooth is so good!! No pressure and if it’s too much then totally dw about it! but would you mind showing your art process? or, maybe what you did/ learned from that made your art so realistic? Keizo with the beanie and june with her stone bracelet is just so good to look at grrrr!
uuuuu THANK YOU! lmao I did those a few years ago so idk what my process was back then…but I know I was inspired my some Range Murata illustrations. My thinking was the subjects were infront of a warm source of light, maybe a lamp located where the viewer is so it’s lit right in front! I’m gonna try to show how I tink about it…but it’s real quick n messy and I’m bad with words!
Here…I am using an old Juhi sketch to colour…
1. The sketch!
2. Flat fills! Each colour group is it’s own layer with the transparency locked. It’s the same as using them as colour masks I think?
3. Thinking about how the light source is right in front, I add darker colours around the contours of the larger forms where it recedes away from the light. The colours I chose were slightly warmer too, cuz I feel like that’s what I see in Murata’s illustrations. I think earlier on he used alcohol markers, which gave it that look…for the skin I feel like it enhances a fleshy look!
4. I blend it out quite a bit! I want the larger forms to look really roundy and soft and gradiated…
5. I add shadows around the smaller forms like the nose, eyes, lips, etc. I paint the hair texture in really rougly because I’m lazy and it doesn’t get much better from here ;•)
6. Blending the finer shadows!
7. Pushing values with darker colours closely along the edges of the contours and adding cast shadows, like under the jaw, on the further back cheek, etc
8. Blending the darker contour shadows but not the cast shadows
9. Roughly adding highlights! Towards the front where the lightsource is. I use a lighter shadw with a slightly yellower hue cuz mmm warm also some redness on top of her cheeks and forehead for flush
10. Blending the highlights
11. Colouring in the facial details and shading them the way I shaded the skin. Also added little shadows around the eyes
12. Blended the lil shadows
13. Added highlights to the facial features. When colouring the eyes I think of shading the iris like a concave bowl, and there’s a clear, shiny lense that domes over everything that reflects a sharp highlight
These are the different ways I think of where to add highlights and shadows. But adding shading is kind of like the inverse! Idk if any of this makes sense GOMEN
this link here explains different stuff about light and shading way better than I can!
you mentioned Adam being one of your faves, will you make a post about him? 👀👀
It’s Adam time!
He’s a doctor!!!!!! He helps you with ur sea sick and ouchies! He is a kind and patient man. A man for the part of me that wants someone to call daddy…I am ashamed……………..hmmm he’s a lot based off of Ren from Ninja Love! Another otome fave of mine who didn’t get a lot of love or content AAAAAAAAAAA 😭 He can be found in his office or at the crew bar where he drinks and plays cards with Keizo! He dabbles in a lil wacky bioengineering as a hobby…he’s been experimenting on his left arm to try and find a way to beat Keizo at arm wrestling
He never wins baby 😎
He’s a good sport though :•)
Who knows what other tings he got up his sleeve! He’s cookin’ up all kinds of shit!
Is there a feature/ something in the game you want to implement? I remember rlly liking sweet fuse because it had puzzles, romance, but esp the fact that the mc could yell at the LIs was super cool!! it’s something I’ve never seen before and I was wondering if you have something ur rlly proud of in game?
Hehehe I feel weird talking about it as a game because I don’t feel hopeful it’ll ever take form as a game! It’s just a concept right now…but even though it’s a faraway dream even dream me knows I’m just one bitch and I’m too stupid to code anything too complicated <:•3 I do wanna have some kind of puzzle solving but just with simple visual novel mechanics of branching routes and “switches.” MAYBE like point and click on a scene to find clues? No mini games or anything like dat since I personally don’t care for all that extra stuff. I’ve only played like two games of this type? Like erotic otome? And the art was polished but….not my favourite lol. The only thing I’d be proud of is the art would be to my liking…but even to get to the point of making a simple visual novel is too much for me! I don’t have the money or connections or any kind of resources to make it into my idea of perfection lolAAAAAAAAA but I guess if I could have absolutely anything I want I’d have animated cut scenes lol but it’s neva gonna happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
do you have a favorite OC in your game character lineup??
Probably Adam and Keizo hehehe. The main guys all have traits that I like in characters but Adam and Keizo are the most my type lmao. I feel kinda bad because they’re probably more developed than the rest 😔 but since the last ask mentioned Keizo this is gonna be a Keizo post!
He’s 6'7"! When you first meet him he’s a lil…sussy 😳 He says he’s part of a band for the cruise but nobody’s seen him play an instrument and he will make excuses if you ask him to so don’t askkk!!!!!!!
He’s a security guard on da ship but it’s a secret!!! Alright?!?! He deals with rowdy and drunk passengers most of the time. He also hates rowdy passengers! All the fighting and rudeness gets to him but he tries his best not to let it show. He bottles up all his rage and frustration and it gives him awful nightmares at night. His cabin mate can’t even sleep in the same room as him…
Unfinished sketches of him with the MC that I’m never finishing!!!!
He can’t feel physical pain! Never has been able to!
He was inspired by characters like Kiryu from the Yakuza games lmAOAAAAAAA but when he’s not pretending to be a sunshiny musician he’s a actually a stern dude wit a good heart uwu He doesn’t have a lot of free time but when he does he likes to play cards with Adam at the bar in the crew quarters! They’ve known each other for like a uuuuuuuh decade! If ur familiar with Wizardess Heart I feel like they’d be the Glenn and Vincent of TDOH lol
I loved Glenn so much and he didn’t get shit for content! And this is my universe so I’m givin’ the boys I like all the attention I want!
About your dating game, is there more on June? She seems interesting 😚
She’s the MC! Compared to the other’s she’s the most boring lol but! She’s the most level headed and everyone needs her for her rationality!
She works for a catering company on the ship! She’s good with a knife…her best friend Puzzle is her manager!! (Puzzle is also a character I made in middle school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) They’ve known each other since high school! Puzzle encourages June to socialize since she’s a bit shy 😳 But they’re always together. They drink at the bar in the crew quarters and socialize with other crew there. Um um idk I designed her with self insertion in mind lmaoAH also I love Range Murata and I feel like I was inspired by his proportions a lil bit! I wanted to change her design too…maybe a lot maybe a little!
here’s her in something she’d wear outside of work then me trying to cosplay my OWN CHARACTER that I’ve never posted anywhere until now cringe
Here’s June n Puzzllllee
lol it doesn’t look like it but they love each other pwomise
JUNE JUNE JUNE!!!
When the cult hijacks the ship she spends the rest of the story being very much over being hijacked and wanting that to just be done with already :•)
Ooo, Koa's grin is so cute XD what's the lore on him?
Koa! The only one from the line up who doesn’t work on the ship! He’s a rich kid who’s here to go on a cruise with his rich mummy n daddy and his two bOYZ (who are characters I’ve had since middle school!!!! and I probably haven’t drawn since middle school…………)
Early Koa concepts!
He’s a(n aggressive inline) sk8er boy and he goes real faaast. He’s a spoiled brat and he’s bored of this lame-ass cruise! He’s not into dancing and watching magic and whatever else there is to do so he goes around pestering other passengers. He likes going to Lloyd’s server room to bug him and play video games. His body is covered in bandages because of friction burns.
He was inspired by characters like Yoyo from Jet Set Radio! JSRF was a big inspiration to me earlier in life and I love those character designs hehhhHEH
Koa’s BOYZ I drew this in 2012 it’s making me cringe oh god it doesn’t look much worse than what I drew recently that’s kind of depressing 😬
I feel like you'd be like the coolest friend if we knew each other in person cuz you're so funny. you make me giggle with your posts and surprise me with your amazingly drawn arts
ooaaoaoaoa anon!!…you are too kind 🥺 hehehe well I’m flattered you think I’m funny! I find that I typically get along with people but as a friend I’m really boring and all I do is complain about shit nobody cares about hehehehehehe WAH
in ur previous ask, you mentioned you wanted to create a game similar to that otome game you liked...what other characters or things would you include if you made such a game 🤭
well I posted these in another ask already but these are all the characters I have for it so far hehhh I don’t wanna make a huge post talking about them all at once but if anyone’s got questions about any of em u can ask! Sweet Fuse is mostly a visual novel with a lil mini game but I’d probably just wanna make it all regular visual novel mechanics. Just choices and branching paths and lots of CGs 👁👁
Will you tell us the general jist of Depth of heaven? Like what kinda games/media inspired it or literally any tidbits on it!! ((Also do you have any lore on Lloyd,, bc I see dark circles and I- 😳😳💖))
someone’s askin about my OCs….wtf this is the best
putting it under da cut cuz this post might be long…and maybe a lil nsfw?
lol I love you asking what games inspired it because I have such an exact answer and that is!!!!!! Sweet Fuse: At Your Side!
It’s my fave otome game! I love the colourful character designs and the way they vary and how it’s in sort of a shonen-y style…my dream is to make a similar game except u can frick the husbandos :•)
So I wanted to have a similar plot…mechanic? Where a bunch of people are trapped together and there’s wacky hijinks and they have to work together to escape. There’s only 4 husbandos in TDOH though. The story in TDOH takes place on the NS Uriana, a nuclear cruise ship. It’s on it’s maiden voyage but…it gets hijacked by a cult who believes this ship will be the one to deliver them to the entrance of heaven in the ocean 👁👁 they believe in a hollow Earth type thing lol
Since you asked about Lloyd I’ll talk about him! He’s an electric engineer on the ship. He communicates with the ship’s A.I. brain and surveys it’s activities n tings like that idk I’m not a computer fuckin nerd. It’s usually simple things like making sure passangers room cards function properly. He prefers to stay in a cramped server room with his monitors where he watches over the ship. He doesn’t sleep much so that’s why the circles. I guess for each husbando they were inspired by husbandos I’ve like and Lloyd takes inspiration from characters like L and Shino lmao He’s a nerd and he’s a bit blunt but he’s good at what he does. He comes off as rude at first but when you crack his shell you’ll realize he’s an unsocialized and inexperienced flustered dork who’s bad at keeping his composure around the person he likes. Sometimes Koa visits his server room to pester him and play video games together
All the art for this thing is rly old…rly rly old! But here’s some early Lloyd sketches!
sorry they’re huge lol I put probably the least amount of effort into Lloyd out of all the pursuable characters and planned to totally overhaul his design and his name…but now that I know someone likes him I feel like I might just tweak him 🥺
but that’s all for Lloyd for now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You asked: Does the DOL universe look like it’s illustrated in my style in their heads?!?!?!? The answer: YES!!!!! Absolutely maybe I am the only one who thinks in drawing and not in real life grafic. But Yes! OH yes!
hehe that’s amazing!!!!!!!!! yeah idk I imagine it in an anime style lmao but I guess maybe it’s cuz the lil graphics look anime…well I’m glad my art can infect ur brain >8•)c
i want u to know ur art on twitter about whitney getting bullied literally put me on the game 😌
hehehe good! >:•3c I like hearing that ppl got into the game cuz of my art and it makes me tink: Does the DOL universe look like it’s illustrated in my style in their heads?!?!?!? Do all the other characters appear in my style??? It’s like I’m beaming my vision of the DOL universe into other ppl’s heads. Crazy thought innit 👁👁
I need u to know..,,that I love u.,,,.and ur art 🤌🏼❤️ I often reference ur art because the way u draw faces and facial structure helps me map out the face when I draw 💕 also I hated Bailey when I first started playing DoL...but YOUR Bailey...has changed my opinions of them 👀
umumum thank you!!!!! 🥺 that’s so flattering lmao cuz that’s what I do with artists I look up to! And ur tellin’ me others do that with my art wtf!!!!!!! I’ve finally made it!!!!!!!!!
I remember one time when I was in a slump I saw this frame from the Stone of Gelel movie and it awakened somethin in me like OH that’s how a face looks lmao wtf! Idk I can just ~~feel~~ the forms so gud like how the forehead and nose protrude forward and the eyes sink in aklealsdjalkjsd idk it just satisfies me
I’m glad you like my Bailey! They must suffer but I’m glad you like them :•)
#text post #also I've added a my art tag to my blog #now you don't have to scroll through a billion thank yous and shit posts to look at me art! #ur welcome
