Raydar. by Cayran Raydar. by Cayran
I swear, Ray's piercings change every single time I draw him. I don't think they'll ever be the same. Who cares though right? Ya' gotta switch things up every now and then!

To continue with my project/goal of doing a portrait of all of my canon OC's, here is the ever shy, ever punk'd, yet ever simple Raydar. Despite his hard appearance and wild choice of hair style, Ray's personality definitely doesn't reflect his appearance. He's shy, quiet, reserved, a tad bit timid; everything you'd guess he wouldn't be. Nevertheless though, he's working on it. His lovely new mate Tuulikki is inspiring him to be a bit more outgoing and approachable. ♥

Ray usually does wear a studded bracelet on his wrist; however I liked the drawing as it was and didn't feel like adding it. Same with the collar - I didn't want to ruin his neck so I gave him dog tags instead.

Gotta love a man with piercings <3 Your colouring and lines are so neat! <3
My word you have a lot of OCs :D
Do you rp your cat ocs in a group/forum? Yours and Ninoir's characters have inspired me to redesign my character and jump in an rp. I've been trying to find one for a while with no luck :/

Oh thank you! And yes, you do. I have always been one for piercings and tasteful tattoos. ♥

I do have a lot of OC's! I've tried to tell myself numerous times "no more" but that doesn't seem to work.I always end up creating someone new. I know of a few CATS rpgs that you might be interested in. I'll be sure to send you a link to them tonight when I get off of work. :D

Same! On both counts. Loving piercings/tattoos and really need to stop drawing new characters. xD
I love Cayran the character by the way, she's so pretty.
And I'd really appreciate the links, I was really at a loss.
I need to get a move on and redesign Larkin then <3 Can't wait to use him!

Thank you! I am quite partial to Cay as well. :D She was my very first CATS Oc.

It looks as if you have already found one of the rpgs I am on. I know ~X22X has a CATS rpg called "Final Bow." I am fixing to join it. There you can rp both cannons and OC's. [link] <- is the link to the site.

I am also pondering over starting up a new RPG. I just haven't had the time yet to make it.

My first OC was Oskar. He's not quite as fun or colourful xD
I'm considering the Next Jellicle Generation but it looks a little strict right now and I'm not sure.
I think I might join Final Bow :)
I'll lurk around on both for a bit.

The Next Jellicle Generation really isn't all that strict. I've taken over as head admin, and the only thing I really ask of people is to post on a regular basis (however that hasn't been happening) and try to type up a believable and well thought out bio for your characters. Other than that, it isn't as intimidating as it may seem. :)

Ray with a nose piercing? Nin approves. Just when I thought he couldn't possibly be any more dreamy. Cay, I swear, for every pic you do I fall a little harder for you boyo ♥

I must say I find your portraits very interesting. They're more than a simple head shot, they tell something about the character well. This is yet another example. I love how Ray is touching his hair. But my fave part must be the contemplating look in his eyes. And how he looks every part of a toughened up punk; you would never think of him as shy. And yet he is. I will always find the contradiction between his looks and personality intriguing.

And while I adore mohawks, I must say he's very delectable with casually tousled hair too. There's something very personal and up-close about a punk with his hair down. This is officially Twiggy's favorite photo (so far) ♥

PS. the way you draw faces is simply manifique.

Oh how wonderful! My plan succeeded. I wanted you to like him and vwala! You do! :D

Thank you so very much darling. I'm pleased you actually notice that I try to incorporate a tad bit of their personality in their head shots. Whether I draw from memory or use a reference, I make sure I tweak it to make it fit my character well. A smile, a cock of the eyebrow, a look in the eye - anything to make it fit the character. It can be a job, but it is always worth it in the end (even if I don't succeed).

As I told Vimmy, I had a God awful time with his mohawk this time around. For that reason I tweaked his hair for this one drawing. I like to think that Ray forgot the hair gel for the day. :P As for his piercings, well, they just keep changing; I can't help but add more and more!

I'm pleased Twiggy approves because darling, she's all he hopes to please. ♥

You do a great job darling, and it shows ♥

And I usually find drawing mohawks to be superfun, but man, it seems that once you begin struggling there's just no way to get it right. I don't blame you for denying Ray his hair gel :D
