It took me almost double the time to do just this simple sketch because my tablet is being difficult and may be on it's way out, I'm still not decided. It's never played up like this before, I mean, there's this strip across the surface (about an inch high and the entire width of the tablet) that sort of just appeared one day and it repels my pen point and the line I'm drawing. It's driving me up the wall, mostly because I feel like this shouldn't be happening already. I've been so careful with it and though I've had my tablet now for more than two years, I've only really used it for one. And I'd totally be fine with the fault if the strip wasn't smack-bang right in the middle of the board, getting in the way of literally every stroke I make. Buying a new one is going to be $600 that I don't have ATM, so I've kinda been forced to go back to traditional doodling again, which is not such a bad thing, but still, my tablet. /o\

Moving on.

So, the weirdest things seem to be triggering my muse lately and they're like a song stuck in your head, they won't go away unless you sing along, or in my case, draw what is stuck in my mind like a repetitive GIF. This is one of those muses.

Warning: Cross-dressing
Fandom: The Losers/Star Trek
Character: Cougar dressed as Uhura
Notes: Inspired by this fic here. When I got to the part where Jensen hands out the Star Trek costumes I was all ahahaha, she's going to make Aisha dress up as Uhura because both characters are played by Zoe Zaldana, cool cool - but instead Cougar get's to be the girl, and then my mind just broke. It's been awhile since I drew full-on cross-dressing and not very well if I remember correctly. Trying to put a guy in a female costume can be tricky, especially when the masculine features kind of slip away when going through the fanart machine (pet peeve SO MUCH). I wanted to see if I could find the balance of guy, dressing up as a chick, but still looking good and the way Cougar is described in the fic. I think I did alright.

And the coloured version, because my muse hates me.

Wow. SO MUCH WOW. Okay, so this is absolutely perfect and exactly what I had in mind, yes, please and thank you! I love Cougar's arms - they're really the thing that makes it feel like Cougar to me, for some reason, though the eyes, too, those are exactly how I always imagine Cougar.

I love this, so much, and I can't tell you how much I squawked with glee when I saw the notification in my inbox. I made my girlfriend come over here are send me a copy of the picture (I can't LJ at work) and then I mooned at it all afternoon, until I could get home to tell you how amazing it is. AMAZING. I love this, and I am so happy to have written the inspiration for something so beautiful.

Heeeee I'm so glad you like it, no really! I have a bit of a 'oh my god I did fanart, please don't hit me' stage, so I'm thrilled that you approve! And I'm really not sure about Cougar's arms, maybe the muscles? I don't know.

I actually think my mind broke a little when Jensen gave Cougar the Uhura costume, and the only way to fix it was to get the image out of my head! Again, I'm so happy that you like it! All of your praises are making me all giddy <3333

Aw, yay! You're welcome - you deserve ALL the compliments! And I will be sending more people this way as soon as I get done with a quick beta I'm doing for pistol. Also - my girlfriend was wondering if it'd be okay to color it? She loves to color and does a great job (it's fine if you'd rather not - I just wanted to ask first).


ALSO! I highly approve of art for pistol's story, OMG. YES.

*Blushes* You're too nice <333 And sure your friend can colour it in (I'd love to see it), that's my one major let-down, my colouring SUCKS, I've done one attempt but... it's not very good /o\

It WILL happen!!!

\o/ Well, I asked a little late in the game, because apparently she started working on coloring it as soon as she saw it (she was impressed too!). So, it's here, if you want to see - she wants to make sure it meets with your approval before I put it up anywhere. <3

Also, sorry to read about your tablet - I missed that the first time. That sucks.

Ahahaha, sounds like a person after my own heart! OMG, I'm a little giddy, it's like someone doing fanart on my fanart which is just awesome. I totally want to retry to colour it now, this is ticking my muse like crazy! Tell her ALL THE LOVE <33333

It does, it completely sucks! But I was able to squeeze this sketch out, so it still has some life in it yet <3

This is amazing. I have to agree with kisahawlin, the arms make this just perfect. I'm blown away by your skill!

Awww thank you so much! I guess the muscles on Cougar's arm make him seem more like a dude? I don't know

Let me just say that I've been hella tempted to do art for We Know How It Works (the world is no longer mysterious) and it's definitely on the list of things to do, but then my tablet is dying, so it might have to wait, BUT IT WILL HAPPEN.

Either way, your Cougar is smoking' hot.

Let me just say, my eyes are about to jump out of my skull. Oh-em-gee, You're too sweet!! :D
