D.O.T. — Octavilani
Some people like Candy Crush. I like Defender of Texel. (Basically you collect fighters to fight other fighters.) www.facebook.com/DefenderofTexel
What began as a free download on my phone to pass the time on my commute to work has become something of a daily obsession and I’ve been hooked for months. So I decided to create some fan art. This character is Octavilani; part human, part spider, part earth guru who has the ability to raise the ground to attack 3 foes at once. This probably won’t mean much unless you’re familiar with the game, but I’ve found her quite useful.
If you’ve clicked the link you’ve noticed the game’s art is based on retro 8-bit pixel graphics, which was what drew me initially. Here’s how I imagine her in vector.
Of course, the game makers do gently encourage users to recruit other players by way of invite IDs, so of course, I gently encourage anyone who checks out the game to use mine when it asks for it (we’ll both be rewarded!): xths
Hey it’s better than a random FB invite right?
"Justin Time, a Self-Portrait"
My name is Justin. When someone says “just in time” or “just in case” there’s usually a moment when I think they are talking to me, even if they’re not. For some friends it’s already a nickname. Well, now it’s a self-portrait.
There’s lots of symbols in this piece. In addition to burying my visage in a collage of time-keepers, I’ve personalized it in regards to the animals. Yes, I currently share my home with 2 dogs and 3 cats…and a parrot. If you’ve met me in person then you understand the giraffe, and the roosters refer to my family name. Even the time is symbolic. In addition to making killer eyebrows, they’re also a nod to the family. I’m half Czech.
Half Czech, half clever.
I created this piece for the “RuPaul’s Sickening Fan Art” contest, however, unfortunately I missed the deadline. BUT, I’m still a huge fan so I completed it anyway. Serving diamond realness.
"Willam as Emma Frost (the White Queen)" - She can read minds, and project thoughts into others minds, controlling their actions.
I’ve had it in my mind to do a portrait of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 4 star Willam Belli as Marvel’s White Queen for some time now. Coincidence?
Alexandra St. James as Storm
"Queens of the Ho’oscope" - Pandora Boxx as Lady Taurus
Some of you have asked if I plan to make prints available for the “Disney Is a Drag” series. I’d just like you all to know that I’m currently looking into this and will post an update when I have more information. Thank you for your interest and your patience!!! ♥
