Title: Stardustpink Art
Post by: stardustpink on March 03, 2014, 04:49:59 PM
Hey everyone ^^ Just wanted to post some of my pictures again. Ive been drawing almost non stop these days, and over the years, have drawn quite a lot. So I thought itd be nice to show it.

A lot of these are original characters,while others are based on already existing stories(Alice in wonderland, Wizard of OZ, etc), so there more twists on the original literature than completely my own. I cnat say there totally my own in any case. There also some parodys amongst the lot, mostly Disney.

I am aware some of them look a bit funny looking back, espeiclaly the anatomy XD But even if I notice such an issue I cant bare to throw an old drawing away. If I did Id soon have nuttin left.

PS, sorry if any images get cut, I dunno how to quiete fix it.

Hi there and welcome to MR :)

This is what I noticed:

1. Very bright, flat colors
2. You need to work on your anatomy - arms are too big, hands are too big feet and legs are too big, faces are not in perspective and anatomically unstable and the eyes are way too big. The proportions between size of legs/arms/hands/feet in relation to the body are quite off.

I'd recommend some basic anatomy studies including gestures so you can make your poses more dynamic/natural and get the relations between the body parts right.

I did like the Coral (from Coraline) pic :3 and I do like, that you don't shy away from doing backgrounds - keep practicing those and try to improve on your anatomical foundation - I am looking forward to seeing your progress :3

Best of luck & keep at it,
Knopf

Sbout two years wroth of drawings here. I had given myself a goal of 100 pictures so I could build up my portfolio. Well in alphabetical order, as I was just easier to do it that way with imageshack. As a mater of fact that's what I do ^^ I draw by hand with paper and pencils first, scan in and do the inking and colouring via photoshop. Im mostly self taught with a few things Ive learnt from the internet, tutorials, etc.

Yeah anatomy is one of my biggest problems, especially looking back at some of my early stuff. Some of the arms are ridiculously long Ive noticed amongst other things. I often try and look at my own body these days for anatomy, like where the hands should finish or might look like in certain poses. Sometimes I look at stock images for the same reason.

Thank you ^^ Coral is an original charcter of mine, so, I thought that would make a nice parody.I always try to put in some nice backgrounds when I can but its one of the more difficult parts of drawing I find.

I will indeed keep trying. I know Ive got a long way to go, but I'll keep on drawing and hopefully improve. I try and draw a little every day.

Thanks for the tips and the words of encouragement, tis most appricated. ^^

Im a big fan of Junko Mizuno. Her cutesy yet unsual style. So, I took a hand at drawing two of my own characters in her style.

The first is a Princess character of mine named Gisel, while the second is Alice from a manga interpretation of Alice in wonderland I have in mind.

Im also very much into fantasy. Fairy tales, classic children's literature, (Peter pan, Huck Finn) etc. I hope to someday do some manga adaptions of my favourite stories. These pictures are based on those. Some of them are older than others so, no as good I admit ^^;

Hey there that is a lot of art and gosh it looks nice.

I will say overall you have a good base idea of anatomy what not. Though sometimes the eyes are too far apart or too big on some of them. Also the legs seem to be like 2/3 of some people. Draw guidelines/outlines of people without the clothing and try to match the anatomy there. It does help a lot to know how long people are. Use references if ever in doubt and try your best. I really like your work it's pretty good, you just need to master it more is all. Practice doesn't make perfect, but perfect practice makes perfect.

Im a big fan of the Chaotix crew from Sonic the Hedgehog. I first got introduced to the characters via Sonic Heroes. I know the game gets a lot of negative views, btu I don't get why ^^' I happen to think its pretty fun. But I guess everyone has there own opinions. So Im drawing some images based on them, in human form as I just like doing that. Some are based on levels are enjoyed playing in the game. In this case, Bingo Highway.

I experimented with neon effects in this picture and used a bunch of screenshots for reference. Its probably not perfect but nice to try summin new. Took me quiete some time to finish and a lot of layers but a nice end result I think.

PHEW!! Feels like forever since I've gotten anything actually finished. I've started enough, that's for sure, but been a bit busy recently so haven't really had a chance to work on anything. Ive been on a short college course up in the London from april 7th till the 11th, and each day is pretty long plus travel. So by the time id get home Id be exhausted. Hopefully I'll be able to do some more work like I intended.

The first two images are from a short series of pictures I'm planning. As a child I grew up on the G1 my little pony, always renting it from the video shop. I grew up on a lot of retro cartoons this way

Its meant to be a series of images of the original ponies in more humanly forms. I plan to draw all my faves in this style. Just something I wanted to do, thought it'd be a lil different, and its a good way to practice anatomy in any case. The first in this little series is Wind Whistler and Heart Throb.

The last image is my take on Glinda, of Wizard of Oz fame. Sorry its not alot ^^; But I just haven't had the time to draw lately. Still I hope its liked.

PS, sorry for the direct linking, but I recently started putting my images on Deviantart, but I dunno how to embed them in posts like my former images. If anyone knows how, please lemme know and I'll fix em up. Would be most grateful

Just a general thought, but is there any particular reason you're placing your figures on such large backgrounds?  If you're working zoomed in, it's probably not so noticeable, but when you see the images as a whole, very often the characters seem a bit lost due to their small size.
Title: Re: Stardust Art
Post by: semblare on April 16, 2014, 07:04:32 PM
I love the chibis, like the 4th one down on the first post. Your style really suits those.

As to the over sized eyes comment, you could probably get away with keeping that actually. Its a stylistic thing.  I think the problem isn't that they're large, it's that they're in general, too far apart.

And as for hands and feet, try paying more attention to wrists and ankles, they get much narrower than you're drawing them.

My favorite as far as anatomy books go is Andrew Loomis's figure drawing book

About the eyes - try to make them in different shapes to make your characters more individual, because right now the look like clones but with different hairstyles and clothing.
But I like the colors - they're very lively.
And try to add some shading to make them more natural.

Keep it up :)
Title: Re: Stardust Art
Post by: Lumaria on April 17, 2014, 05:25:13 AM
i suggest add variety to the limbs of your characters and check if they are consistent. sometimes you make hands too big because their limbs are too short, and other times you make them the appropriate size.

make sure that eyes are proportionate to their face, they can be bigger than normal, but not to the point where eyes just seem out of place. when we see the characters at an angle, we can partially see their other eye, but not enough. and that looks odd.

work on their heads, and make various profiles of them by slowly turning them. another issue you need to consider is how thick you make them. don't make your arm and legs too thick. seems most of your art is inspired through 90s anime and disney movies. not necessarily a bad thing, but your work needs a little more variation.

Just a general thought, but is there any particular reason you're placing your figures on such large backgrounds?  If you're working zoomed in, it's probably not so noticeable, but when you see the images as a whole, very often the characters seem a bit lost due to their small size.

Hmmm... No, no real reason, just, go with what feels right I suppose. but I can see your point. Back in school my teacher always said you should use up every part of the page, leave no area empty. I do however scan the images in big and then shrink the images down after, as its easier to do the finer details this way, but, I tend to post the big images on DA as they tend to resize em automatically, and incase anyone would like to look at them bigger. Just my ways I spose.

I love the chibis, like the 4th one down on the first post. Your style really suits those.

As to the over sized eyes comment, you could probably get away with keeping that actually. Its a stylistic thing.  I think the problem isn't that they're large, it's that they're in general, too far apart.

And as for hands and feet, try paying more attention to wrists and ankles, they get much narrower than you're drawing them.

My favorite as far as anatomy books go is Andrew Loomis's figure drawing book

Thanks ^^ I think so too, I mean, anime/manga, the eyes are quiete large. In real life there eyes would probably end where the eyebrows are. And looking back, yeah, I can sorta see what people mean. Sometimes it looks like one of the eyes is gonna slide right off the face >< Hope in time and pratice I can notice that more. As for the narrower parts of the body, I admittedly have a lot of trouble with those >< They always come out weird looking right now...

About the eyes - try to make them in different shapes to make your characters more individual, because right now the look like clones but with different hairstyles and clothing.
But I like the colors - they're very lively.
And try to add some shading to make them more natural.

Keep it up :)

I think I get whatcha mean. And thanks, im glad for the colours ^^ I love bright, eye-catching stuff myself, but while I think what I use is okay, I fear perhaps there a bit harsh, or rather,some people might find em so. But I guess you cant please everyone. Shading where, exactly? Just so Im clear...

i suggest add variety to the limbs of your characters and check if they are consistent. sometimes you make hands too big because their limbs are too short, and other times you make them the appropriate size.

make sure that eyes are proportionate to their face, they can be bigger than normal, but not to the point where eyes just seem out of place. when we see the characters at an angle, we can partially see their other eye, but not enough. and that looks odd.

work on their heads, and make various profiles of them by slowly turning them. another issue you need to consider is how thick you make them. don't make your arm and legs too thick. seems most of your art is inspired through 90s anime and disney movies. not necessarily a bad thing, but your work needs a little more variation.

Ive noticed that aswell ^^' Tho, I think Im getting better at the arms and legs and necks. Looking at my earlier stuff, they were ridiculously thick. Its an improvement in any case I spose. I'll keep trying to get it right. But I am glad to know I get it right sometimes at the very least. Disney huh? Hmmm...

First thats alot of pics second why doesn't anyone use manga studio I use a mouse to color but I suck at it but it has alot of useful tools and makes it easy

Personally I find Manga studio really difficult, same with illustrator. I get on better with Photoshop and computones than I ever have with those two programs. I also prefer drawing via a laptop touchpad and the pen tool than I do with a tablet and pen, find it much easier and my lineart and colouring comes out much smoother. But that's just my preference

Cheers everybody for the feedback and taking the time to look at my pictures!!^^

Fizzy was always my favourite of the original ponies. She also seems to be one of the most popular. It was fun, putting in all the different colours.

(http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/118/2/f/lickety_split_by_stardustpink-d7gbamr.png)

Some very nice shades of pink and purple, and I reckon they all go very nicely together.

Quite a large art dump today  ;) Enjoy ya'll

(http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2014/120/3/4/sleeping_little_witchling_by_stardustpink-d7gk0zp.png)

"Little Witch Miyako Chan" is a 6 year old little witchling, daughter of a grand high witch, who lives in a village filled with all sorts of other magical inhabitants.

The puppy, Syrup, is her familiar. While most witches have cats, I felt a little dog suited Miyako better. ^^

(http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/120/b/3/dressing_the_princess_by_stardustpink-d7gk85b.png)

I really need to practice drawing Cael more. Hes meant to be a rather large, strong looking man, but Im not really used to drawing that particular body type. Hope I improve in time

(http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2014/120/9/c/coral_and_sandra_by_stardustpink-d7gkp25.png)

Sandra is the elder sister, Coral the younger. Got the idea from "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman" from Frozen. Just wanted to draw a pair of close sisters.

(http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/122/e/3/quackers_by_stardustpink-d7gt7in.png)

Although Quackers was never in the cartoon, there was a doll, and I really liked her colours, so I decided to draw her.

(http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2014/124/6/0/gingerbread_by_stardustpink-d7h2o7v.png)

So far this is my favourite to have drawn in this little mini series. All the different colours, various shades of purple. Id like to try coming up with an original character with dual coloured hair like this if possible. Admittedly tho a single hair colour is easier to work with.

(http://th00.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2014/125/9/c/bathing_by_stardustpink-d7h9aa7.png)

Shinobu the bat girl, bathing in the river.



PHEW! Feel like I've gotten alot done recently. I've had a lot of drawings just sitting on my computer, gathering dust, so its nice to get them finished off. Takes a lot of pressure off and lessons the workload.

(http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2014/130/4/b/feudal_japan_by_stardustpink-d7htxls.png)

Gawd, I feel like I've been working on this image FOREVER! At this point Im honestly just glad to get it finished. After all the hard work I put into it I was getting it done come hell or high water.

The image is a bunch of my characters in an alternate storyline and roles, set it feudal japan. I hope to do a side story based on this someday. Tho I get the feeling it wont be exactly historically accurate... XD

(http://th08.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2014/133/a/9/sushi_by_stardustpink-d7i8vix.png)

A catboy and catgirl. Twins to be precise. Since cats like fish, I figured Sushi might be considered gourmet food XP That was the basis of this picture.

(http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/134/4/a/power_of_mabel_by_stardustpink-d7ic5t0.png)

Recently I decided to give "Gravity Falls" a go. I was pretty unsure about liking it, but I was pleasantly surprised!

Its funny, even quite clever at parts, without being too in your face with the humour or overly satirical. Kinda a mix of Buffy and Scooby Doo I find.

So far my favourite characters are Mabel, and Waddles. So, I drew this picture!! Its also my first attempt at a Screencap redraw. I myself am really pleased with the end result.

Wasent too sure about the shadows, Ive never done this sorta thing before, but I think it came out alright.

(http://th03.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i/2014/137/5/b/ojamajo_harmony_by_stardustpink-d7ipg44.png)

Another parody piece, this time its my Harmony girls as Ojamajo Witches. Took a long time but worth the end result I think. Nice rainbow coloured piece.

Post by: stardustpink on May 22, 2014, 01:26:55 PM
My character Tammy. An orphan all her life, since she was abandoned outside a hospital the night she was born. She grew up in foster care before running away at the age of 8, spending the next 5 years of her life as a street kid.

This picture is meant to be about those early days, the first few months living rough. And for a young child, all the harder. She's meant to be on a train at night, the lights from outside just whizzing past. Not bad for a first time on that effect, I think. I imagine the perspective is a bit off on this, but, I did start drawing this some time ago.

Ya ever do that? Start a picture and it just ends up sitting on your comp or whatever for ages? Sometimes I end up trashing them cuz looking back, I feel I can do better, but other times, I do still like certain elements of the image and want to finish it. Id say this is one of em. So if its not as good as my more recent pictures, that's cuz like I said, its actually a fair bit older. I tried also tried making her position on the seat look more correct as was suggested before. Not to sure if I did it completely right , but I tried my best

(http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/137/3/0/runaway_by_stardustpink-d7iqgqr.png)

Another screencap redraw, this time its Mimi from Digimon. For some reason or another the Princess episode always appealed to me. I tried taking into account what people have said about large backgrounds, so cropped this image. I think its an improvement in that area, I dunno...?

(http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2014/141/2/a/screenshot_redraw__princess_mimi_by_stardustpink-d7j8gp1.png)

Lastly, its another pony picture. I remember Shady always being worried and rather downhearted in the series, so I gave her a slightly anxious expression. I think the hairstyle rather suits.

(http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2014/142/f/c/shady_by_stardustpink-d7jaodc.png)

Ive just been trying to cut down my workload a little, completing anything in progress and take anything new at a slower pace. I tend to try and take on too much.

I think I should try working on some more Araminta pages soon. I don't want the artwork to look too vastly different if I get better whle Im not working on it, at least while the first issue remains half finished.


Ps to ptngan1331: Thank you :3

Next pony on the list is Gusty ^^ I like the pose and her hair, although the arms proved difficult. I ended up doing them over and over again trying to get em right.

(http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/147/e/c/retro_lilyanna_by_stardustpink-d7jy9xx.png)

I wanted to try drawing a picture using that old shojo manga style, where the characters have sparkly eyes. This is my character Lilyanna. She was loosely inspired by Snow White, I wanted to create a girl as beautiful and innocent as her name. She's the main character in a fairy tale type story.

Drawing it on paper wasn't too difficult, but once I started inking via Photoshop, it got much harder, especially the eyes. But I think in the end it turned out pretty well, and I have a better idea of what to do with it now.

Id like to try drawing some of my other characters in this style. I think there's a few that would rather suit.

(http://th04.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i/2014/150/9/a/what_s_this_i_ve_found__by_stardustpink-d7kbwyl.png)

A crossover idea I've had for some time, and I finally decided to draw it ^^

The little girl is Araminta, an original character of mine, but I didn't make her for MLP. She's got her own series Im currently working on.

I thought she and Discord would make for an interesting image. Both are very random, unpredictable, something of an enigma(I don't think they really go into detail of where Discord comes from, if Im not mistaken), and both are very patchworked. Although in Araminta's case its clothes and not bodyparts :P

Discord has come across this unusual little girl, and Araminta is just perched on his tail, completely oblivious and unsurprised XP  She comes across weird things all the time so I doubt Discord would shock her. And unlike most I think she would enjoy Discords powers, chocolate rain and all that. And being an oddball herself, I think she would grab Discords interest. This picture would probably take place after his reformation.

I hope people enjoy this combination, I may do some more on this duo. Lemme know whatcha think I guess and whether or not you'd like to see more of this combo.

(http://th03.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2014/155/d/5/lion_and_tulip_by_stardustpink-d7kzlj6.png)

A little crossover of sorts ^^

My rendition of The Cowardly Lion, from Wizard of Oz, and The Dormouse from Alice in Wonderland (Made this character a girl). Thought it'd be a sweet subject matter. Both are small children, shy in nature, and like flowers.

Nice stuff Stardust!

The one with Discord and Araminta is interesting. Although what Discord is I'm not entirely sure...

Your anatomy is still off in some parts. Gusty's thighs are too short. And for Araminta's arms I'm not sure where they went.

I like your colouring and backgrounds.

A personal rendition of the villain of Oz. Im really pleased with how this came out, and I feel like Ive tried some new things while creating it. I kept in the Crystal Ball from the movie version. It has a nice ominous, intimidating mood to it.

(http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/160/8/5/dbz_style_girls_by_stardustpink-d7lilk9.png)

Just something I wanted to do for fun. Looking to try a bunch of different manga styles with my own creations as a sort of challenge. I felt this style suited these particular girls.

(http://fc06.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/175/9/5/screencap_redraw__no_magic_by_stardustpink-d7nr4ts.png)

One of my fave scenes from MLP. I plan to do a couple more on the series, a lot of them featuring Discord XP

Took me awhile to redesign Discord as human, but, Im quite pleased with the turn out. I kept certain features from his original form to distinguish him further from the main six and normal ponies. Discord is probably more like some great all knowing sorcerer, if he were human, while the girls are mere mortals. Im not sure bout his eyes tho, MAY change them in future images.

 I guess this is also kinda Discolight.

Ive actually got summin else drawn, but its more mature, and Im not sure about the rules of mature content on this site. Can anyone tell me??? Is it okay if its censored or is it a flat out no? Dont wanna get banned.

Hey im liking your style here is a few suggestions


1. Maybe you should put more items or add some shading effects to fill up the canvas than just leaving giant spaces it would give more emotion. Like the witch for example maybe put a stand with magic potions or a pot filled with strange liquid use your imagination or look up on Google "Witches lair" or something like that.

2. I noticed you keep having your camera/viewers eye in front and your characters looking straight ahead at the camera try a different angle and practice perspective.

3. Try to make your characters bigger on the canvas  all the empty space with nothing to look at doesn't make the character stand out.

Hope this helped :)

(http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2014/178/b/3/aftermath_by_stardustpink-d7o8jhj.png)

A drawing based on a manga idea I wanna draw someday.

Titled "The World", its a sorta sci fi, post apoc story I spose. Four years ago, on a distant planet called "Otaora", the sky was filled with unfamiliar space vessels, with a race of unfamiliar beings upon them. Known only as the "Invaders", they proceeded to take siege of the planet and everyone in it. An initial attack was struck to round up the populace, and almost half the populance was captured. Those who where caught, are held prisoners in "The City", a futuristic city with high walls to prevent anyone getting in or out.

Those who managed to avoid capture, remained outside, remaining in hiding and trying to get there planet, as well as there loved ones back.

The girl in the picture is the main character, Astrid, who was only 12 years old at the time. She managed to escape because her family hid her. This is meant to be after the initial attack. The streets are devoid of life, buildings reduced to rubble, with Astrid, like many others, in shock over what's happened, not knowing what's happened to there loved ones, or if there even alive. There once peaceful lives shattered within moments.

Im not good at summaries I fear, but I hope you get the jist of it.

Another cosplay/parody picture, this time I went with an old favourite. When anime was first coming over to Britain, Pretty Sammy became one of my faves. So Ive got the female cast of "Project Harmony" dressed up in the style. Was able to experiment with new stuff in this image, including hairstyles. There's a few here Id like to use again.

Thanks ^^ But Im afirad im not sure. Its probably gonna be one of my more complicated pieces, and longest. So I wanna be sure Im ready to take it on when I do, and I think may art really needs to improve a fair bit before I do, as I want it to be something amazing. Mainly I need to imrpove on bulidings and stuff, Imagine during a super hueg high tech city!! No way Im at that level yet, or at leats not enough so that it looks good.

Plus theres designing the rest of the cast. I have them in my head, but getting them on paper is alot harder. Inlcuding Astrid I have mayby, 5 designed? And theres about 15 altogether. Tho I have the basic idea in my head,so, thats at least one thing completed. Its more physical design now than anything else.

Tho I will still be drawing art on this particular idea, so, thats sumthing. And hopefully I'll be able to turn it into a real series in time.

Nah, never seen that one. Ive seen a few movies on the subject tho. Running man,  A Boy And His Dog. And this one where new york city has been turned into a giant prison?I forget the name of that one.

Just a simple little drawing I wanted to do.My characters Cassian and Araminta in very diffrent forms XP

Even as a mouse, Araminta is completly fearless(scampering right up to a cat), and adorable[/B] X3 Might do some more of the two in this manner, at the very least I wouldent mind being able to draw Araminta as a mouse again.

Originally I wanted this to be a picture by the sea (hench the water drops on the girl), but I found this really pretty bubbly texture, and it was just too nice to pass up!

The boy Shiro has a crush on the girl Aina, but like alot of teenagers, has alot of trouble telling her how he feels.

(http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/196/b/6/kiss_the_girl_by_stardustpink-d7qreek.png)

At the time when I got the idea for this picture, I thought I was being so original.. But since then everyones done a drawing based on this song XP So not so much anymore XD.

Never the less, its a wonderful song, and Idina Menzel has a great set of pipes. So I took my own hand at drawing a picture on it. Originally I had something diffrent in mind, but the pose proved too difficult. Perhaps I could do a redux in the future.

But I do belive this came out great, Im really happy with it. Took a few tries doing Elsa's hair, its very hard to draw 3d charcters in 2d style sometimes. I had the some problem with Jack Frost.

Enjoy!

(http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/199/2/1/let_it_go_by_stardustpink-d7r7nlq.png)

This drawing was done based on the ending song from "Robin Hood, Prince Of Thieves." Whether they were real or not, I think Marian and Robin are one of the most romantic couples ever ^^

Robin Hood is one of my favourite storys, and I would like to draw a manga version some day. This is how I imagine they might look. Ive made them a little younger in my interpratation, there about 15 years of age. But back in those times, they would be considered adults. Girls as young as 14 could get married back then. If you werent married by your 20's, you were considered an old maid I believe. Im not too good on history XD

One of the great things about Robin Hood is there is no one story. There are many diffrent interpratations, thus alot to enjoy and choose from.

These days I find Im trying out texture alot. It can really give your image some pop depending on how you use it.

Another small challenge I set myself, this time I drew some of my characters in the style of Sailor Moon. The manga version mind, not the anime.

I tried to copy the style as best I could, down to the anatomy, hair and eyes. Some parts admittedly dont seem to come out aswell I fear when Im inking in photohop ^^' Quiiete a few things Im not sure came out too well. Ah I dunno.

 The background was more based on the anime version. Thats one thing I always liked about the original, the chibi faces and pretty backgrounds.

The characters in question are of my own creation, a sorta Sci Fi Magical Girl idea. Cosmic Theif Silvia and the Galatic Girls. By day they pose as a popular alien girl band, by night magical girl superheros. So they are original characters, but I just drew them in a diffrent style than my own for this particular piece. Like everything else, the scenario and such needs alot of work ^^' But I hope ya like the designs and the image.

(http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2014/220/4/4/galactic_girls__sailor_moon_style_by_stardustpink-d7u97yi.png)

Havent gotten as much done as I wouldve liked admittedly. Been pretty down recently.

Right now I am focusing on getting Araminta finished, and still trying to draw despite how Im feeling. Doing the things you enjoy are meant to help anyway. I hope to get a few more pages of that up soon so, be on the lookout

On a lighter note, heres a little something extra. A friend of mine had one of my old drawings I did for him and sent it my way... Oh dear gawd XD How I usedta draw. DAMN. Putting it up here for a comparasion of my current stuff.

(http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2014/226/3/b/cj_1_by_stardustpink-d7v6sam.bmp)

I cant remeber when I did this, probably my early teens. Between 12 and 15 I think. I usedta do everyhing by hand, colouring with pencils before moving on to photoshop .Ive definelty imporved since then, woudlent ya agree?:P

This drawing was actually inspired by another idea I had, but that for now is going to remain a secret ^^ I happened to finish this firts, as it required less detail, and hate to ruin the suprise. XP

And this picture had given me an idea for some other pictures. Allow me to explain.

The girl is my character, Princess Yuri, who has the magical abilites to manipulate both ice and water. And since Ice kings thing is kidnapping princess’s, I thought this would be a funny crossover pic. Wanting to make it more a jokey picture, I wondered what silly thing the Ice Kign might do in the attempts of getting a bride. Looking at old cartoons, tickle torture seemed a common method of persuasion XP Seems like something Ice King would do so I thought, what the hey.

I think it turned out to be a pretty cute picture too ^^ Yuri herself is meant to be chibified, while I just went with the usual adventure time style for Ice King. Thankfully its a fairly easy style to draw.

Anyway, like I said, this gave me an idea. Yuri is the youngest of three triplet sister princes’s. And I thought, what might they get up to in Ooo? So those will hopefully come next. As for whos gonna be with who, well, you’ll havta wait and see XP

I imagine Ice King is in for a world of hurt when either Finn or Yuri’s sisters come to her rescue

Second picture in this little series.

Princess Akina is the middle sister, magical abilities being fire and love, very girly and loves cute things. And BMO is one of the cutest little things in Adventure time X3

(http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/246/c/5/adventures_in_ooo__what_time_is_it__by_stardustpink-d7xt9od.png)

ADVENTURE TIME!!

Princess Midori, the last and eldest of the three sisters. A tomboy, Midori is more a knight than a princess in personality, and is not likely to hang around with other princess’s. I think she’d be the type to hang around with guys like Finn and Jake.

This is the final drawing in my little Adventures in Ooo series ^^
(http://th04.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2014/247/a/d/once_upon_a_dream_by_stardustpink-d7xx0sf.png)

This series is still going, tho its been a long time I admit since Ive done a picture for it. But Im determined to see it through.

This time its Willow as Princess Aurora, Sleeping Beauty.

Lookin back I do notice some mistakes, mainly cuz its taken me ages to finish since I actually skecthed it. But if you kept redoing your work all the time looking back at faults, youd eventually have nothing left. The more you try the better ya get at it. Ive definetly improved I think since I began this partiuclar mini series.

(http://th03.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/i/2014/250/8/c/a_world_apart_by_stardustpink-d7ydh56.png)

A personal take on “The Little Mermiad”. With some slight changes. For one thing, instead of a prince, the mermaid falls in love with a sailor. And unlike the original story, I plan for this to have a happy ending.

For the longest time I was stuck on this picture and felt like just packing it in. BUT, a little experimatation, and I started feeling eager to keep drawing it. And as a result, it turned into something beautiful. So Im glad I stuck with it.


PHEW!!Been working my ass off latley. Feeing a bit drained

Halloween is one of my favouritre holidays, and I reckon this is the first time Ive finished a picture in time for an actual holiday  ;)

The Sonic kids dressed up for the festivities. Tails as a mad scientist, Cream as a witch, and Charmy... Well I dunno what Charmy is, but its adorable non the less!X3

Been working very hard recently and managed to clear off nearly everything in my photoshop files. Sometimes I have trouble getting drawings finished once I start them. I hope this'll also gimme some more time now to sketch up some new things.

My characters Ko Ji, a panda boy Martail Artist, and his twin little sisters, Xiao Lin(dressed in white), and Jun Rei. Mischievous young girls, they often use there indentical appearence to play tricks.

Feel like Im getting bolder with my backgrounds. Resources found on DA and such are a godsend and allow me to do more. For the flowery backgound on the wall I used some origami paper I bought in an art shop.

(http://fc00.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2014/251/a/9/siblings_by_stardustpink-d7yfdz8.png)

One of my fave elements of Adventure Time? The friendship between Marcy and Simon. Its just so adorable! Albeit sad ;-; I wonder if they'll ever do a ep where it reveals in detial how they eventually got seperated. Alot of fans have done pictures on the subject.

I also hope that things end happy for Simon. Itd be a shame if the series ended and he was stuck as the Ice King. Be nice to see him somehow get changed back permantely.

Anyway, this of course the scene where little Macry first recieves Hambo. I like the colours I used for her hair and flesh.

(http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2014/273/b/4/screencap_redraw__hambo_by_stardustpink-d812kaz.png)

Not much to say about this image. Just a drawing of Princess Luna, pilot and mainstream version. Thought it'd be an intresting comparasion.

My favourite touch is the glowing stardrops.

I always thought the original Luna seemed quite young, 14 or so. While the new Luna seemed alot more regal and confident. About 16 mayby? Hench the height diffrence.

Post by: stardustpink on November 10, 2014, 08:33:03 AM
Gingergiggles: It has huh? Great ^^ Im pleased to here that.

Uhhh, that depends really. Im not greally great with sense of time for that matter, I dont usually keep track. Sometimes whats happened just yesterday feels like a week ago for example. Plus when Im drawing I tend to get lost in my own little world.

And its also a question of how detialed the picture is. The simpler it is naturally the less time it'll take.

My guess for something pretty basic, like a single person or two, mayby a few hours? When Im actually working on it of course, I do need sleep :P For something alot bigger and more complicated, mayby a few days?

I just keep drawing till Im satisified with the image so, I guess in the long run it just takes as long as it takes ^^

The Pines Twins from Gravity Falls.

Theres a fair bit of mixed meida in this drawing, which is a pretty new subject for me, and gave me a chance to try alot.

For Dippers BG I dabbed a teabag against some paper to get that aged look, an old trick but a goodun. His half is meant to like a journal, I even used passages from THEE journal for the writing.

Mabel is a bit more flashier by comparasion and sa its been shown, she likes alot of artsy and cutsey stuff. I used glitter for her name, and for the BG I painted a watercolour wash and scanned it in. I love how the pinks and purples mesh together on it. Fo the gems, stickers and crayons I took some photographs, then cut them out in photoshop, the messed around with the levels and contrast to clean them up a bit.

This took me a fair bit of time but I do belive the conclusion is pretty awesome ^^ I feel good to have finished it. I woudlent mind doing a bit more mixed media in my art.

(http://th06.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/f/2014/352/0/1/lilyanna_by_stardustpink-d8aca58.png)

A main character in one of my story ideas. A fairy tale type fantasy

Heres what I have so far in mind for the story.

A young girl as pure and innocent as her name, Lilyanna is a maiden who's lived most of her life happily in a her small cottage in the forests, in the land known as "Faraway".

In another part of the kingdom, a powerful sorcerer King has grown listless. There is nothing that gives him joy or pleasure any longer. But one day, hears the most beauitful singing while in his tower. And using his magic eyes, which can see anywhere across the land, no matter how far, come across the singer in question, Lilyanna.

Immediatlyy bewitched by her loveliness he is determined to make her his Queen. However, Lilyanna of course is not about to marry a complete stranger and makes several attempts to escape.

So the King strikes uo a bargain, prefering a willing bride. He will allow Lilyanna to leave and make her way home to the forests. Given the distance between her cottage and his kingdom, this could take months, if she is lucky. And during that time he will do all he can to woo her and have her agree to the marriage, even the use of magic. If she suceeds in getting home though, he promises to stop pursuieng her.

Like alot of my works, it still has alot of rough egdes and plot holes to be filled, but if everything came to you instantly what woudl be the piont in even doing it? Hope to develop this story further.

(http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs71/i/2014/353/0/c/screencap_redraw___what_is_it__by_stardustpink-d8adr8s.png)

Another bit of fanart, this time its the TMNT boys! The diffrence in this redraw really stands out a of course, there human in this picture as opposed to there normal selves.

This scene is from the 2012 remake, the boys first discovering pizza, staring over it and not knowing what it is. Raph and Donnie's expressions came out best I think

Im more familiar with original cartoon, growing up with that as a kid, and the CGI 2007 movie, but Im curious to look into this latest remake, given some clips Ive seen on youtube. Doesent seem half bad. Anyway, I liked this scene so, thats why I drew it.

One thing I like about how the series has changed over the years? The boys have devoloped alot more personality to the original cartoon. Raph's the hot head, Mikeys the goofball, etc.

I would like draw more more of this fandom in the furture when the chance comes.



Merry Xmas all!  :santa:

Ok, so at first I kind of thought the eyes are too far apart and proportions are off etc. Despite this it's consistent throughout your artwork and it's always very clean and well done.

Despite my first impressions I really like this style because it's pretty original and easy to pick out. The first time I saw your style was on your manga in the members manga section, I hadn't actually seen your gallery yet, but I knew it was yours the second i opened it and saw the art (i didnt look at your name when looking at the manga)

So yeah keep it up, your style is strange but very unique and fits the theme of your manga.

Since Im working on this manga, I'd like people to get familair with the characters. It was alot of fun coming up with Araminta's rather unusual wadrobe Wink/Razz  I hope to ue all of these outfits at somepiont during the comic, although some will be easier to implement than others(sleepwear, swimwear, etc.)

Dident bother with shading for this, just flat colours.


I could also do with a bit of help if anyone can offer it, for a wip.

Its part of a larger image, but alot of the time I find it easier to draw a bunch of parts seperatley and combine them together in photoshop. Anyway, this is the background part, and Im trying to practice my perspective.

(http://th07.deviantart.net/fs70/PRE/i/2015/017/b/6/ellie_0006_new_by_stardustpink-d8e8el8.jpg)

I guess its kinda an aerial view, of a childrens bedroom. Now, I think its pretty good, definelty an improvement, but at the same time I cant help but feel somethings wrong about it that Im not seeing. The bunkbeds are supposed to be right against the wall, so, where the floor meets seems off I think. Theres also a door to the right, two people looking in on the sleeping children making sure there safe, and the door seems a little off too. Can anyone tell me or suggest summin? Much obliged if so

A small series of crossover images Im planning to do, Im drawing a bunch of my original characters as Pokemon Trainers.

Admittedly I got tired of the anime a long time ago. BUT, the games are still fun and pretty addictive, and the manga adaptions arent half bad either. And ya cant deny there are some cute pokemon out there X3

SO this is just summin Im doing for a bit of fun. I hope to give each "trainer" an individual look, aswell as pairing them with a pokemon that suits them best. Coral would definetly be a water type user, and her main partner would be a Horsea.

My character Yume is a daydreamy sort of girl. Has her head in the clouds and spends alot of time sleeping. The type of Pokemon she has on her team would be the ones that either use a moonstone to evolve, or have something to do with night and day. Things like Lunatone, Solarock, Clefairy, etc. Her main patner is a cute pink Jigglypuff.

I love her outfit and I think its my most original deign so far regarding this trainer series. Her character also likes to draw, so in her bag she carries paints, sketchpads, etc, along with a pokeball or two. Perhaps in this world she enjoys sketching pokemon.

(http://pre00.deviantart.net/a799/th/pre/i/2015/078/b/4/pearls_and_silk_by_stardustpink-d8ijdbd.png)

I dunno really what to say about this drawing,its just something I wanted to do ^^ One of my characters all dolled up. Anothe mixed media picture, the background is cardstock and the pearls are stick on from craft stores. I also used a little texture to give it a bit of something extra.




Recently Ive been working more on designs and ideas for "The World". Sketches, storys, etc. I have a great deal characters done, which inlcude most of the main cast.

In The World there are three kinds of people. The Invaders, who rule with an iron fist, insiders, who are prisoners within "The City", and outsiders, those who still remain free in the ruins of there old lives. Some prefer to be alone, while others tend to form in groups, "Clans". Astrid, the main character Ive mentioned before, is the leader of a clan named "Haven". Named so becuase of where they live, a hotel called "Haven House". Haven of course meaning a place of safety, and in a world like this evryone needs summin like that.

Clans can be either good or bad. Those who are willing to help each other and try and get there home back, and those just out for themsleves and all to happy to benifit fom the miserable state of the world.



These are some designs of an ally clan of Haven, known as "Sanctuary". Named so becuase they live in a church. There leader is a teenage preacher, Isaiah, and his friend Emma (faces on the far left). There a mericiful, kind pair who moslty take in children. Some whos parents are locked up in the city, others, orphaned or even abandoned. The people in the clan also tend to have religious names.

These two boys are members of Haven. Kaiden,13, and his little brother, Koby, 8. There mother was inprisoned in the city, so Kaiden trys to take care of his baby brother in her place. Which isent always easy as he's just a kid himself.

I fear Im gonna have trouble finshing this drawing, I want to ceate a certain mood with colour, but thats a new subject for me.

I have some other clans and characters in mind, but I'd rather go into detial about those later.

When I can i'd like to draw a big groupshot of Clan Haven, and introduce the characters.


*Phew*Feel like Im going a bit crazy lately, as usual my moods can be pretty up and down @_@ Be nice if they were a bit more stable. On the plus side I do think Im managing one way or another and still getting some work done, tho mayby not as much as I'd like.

Hi dudes! Feeling a tiny bit better. Not quiete my old self but a bit more stable, managing somehow.  Not ideal really but hey I was feeling alot worst, so any step forward is an improvement

Admittedly its been nice taking a break. I was really pushing myself before any free chance I had, so it feels nice to do nothing for awhile.

Felt like doing a little scribbling, just for fun, and at the mo thats easier. If I feel like it I can just do it, and it doesent havta be perfect or anatomically correct or anything. Lets me draw a little and takes some of the pressure off. Heres summin I did. Some characters of mine from a 17th century story

Things are a little better right now and I certianly hope they continue to improve. Laters

Right now Im just doing stuff more or less for fun. Hes a cast shot Ive been working on.

Its for a manga idea I have. A bunch of teenage kids who are martial arists, each one respresanting an animal in the chinese zodiac. Have most of them here.

Featured are the Ox, Boar, Tiger, Horse, Monkey, Dog, Dragon, Snake, and the Rooster. Id like to actually do a more tight picture like this, inked and coloured at somepiont.

I relaise the anatomy and stuff is off :P But Im just doing stfuf for fun now, not worrying over every little detial. I already have been latley which is the piont :P Thats the beaty of rough drafts.

Some fanart to start with, "Steven Universe". I do rather like certain characters, so I drew one of my faves, Lapis. I'd also like to do Sapphire perhaps.

Sapphire from Steven Universe. I really liked her design, looks like a little blue princess, so I had to draw her ^^

Recently I purchased a Cintiq out of personal chioce. When I started out drawing digitally I use the pen tool in photoshop, but decided I want to move on to using a tablet. Hey, when ya feel ready to try sommin new, ya do it. So this is my first drawing using it. And, I think for a first try, its not half bad ^^ Some rough edges I'll admit but pretty good non the less. Anyway, Ive been told before art doenste havta be perfect. I condiser myself something of a perfectionist which probably isnet too healthy, so Im trying to move away from that. With practice I hope to get better.

There are some terrific upsides to using a tablet. Pressue senstivity, cuts the work time in half. It wouldve taken me ages to finish this before, this was much quicker. The feel is similiar to using my sketchbook(I admit I like to see what im drawing, hench why I went with a Cintiq). Cant rave about it enough.

Feedback is appreciated.

A character for a story, "Lil Red", which is all about some of the most well known fairy tale characters all living together in a fantasy world. This, is 8 year old Ducky. Aka. "The Ugly Duckling". Though personally I think he's very cute X3

Ducky was born to a family of blue bloods, but unlike his parents and siblings, who were all born blonde and beautiful, Ducky was born with scruffy black hair and freckles. And while there stuck up and aristocratic, Ducky is sweet and big hearted. Unfortunately his family dident appriciate how loving he was, and looked down on him because he was "Ugly". So, he ran away from home. Luckily his story does have a happy ending.


As a little summin extra, heres a bunch of works in progress. Been sketching quiete a bit recnelty and its proven fun. ^_^ Enjoy

Three of my girl characters from a magical girl series I have in mind. "Magical Warrior Ninja Mitsuki". These are the three girls posing for a picture outside there school. The story is set in England tho admittedly there uniforms look kinda like sailor fukus. I came u with those designs years ago. HOWEVER, I like them and plan to keep them. I tried westernizing them a bit by changing the collars and adding buttons.

From left to right

Ruby: Leecey's best friend, her alter ego is "Ninja Umi", power over water.

Leecey: The main character, shes a cheerful energetic girl who is way into animation and video games. Although sometimes she doesnet take things as seriously as she should, she's non the less a heart on her sleeve kinda girl. The hero of the story, she is "Ninja Mitsuki".

Sakura: A Japanese girl who moved to England a good few years ago. Her father is a proffesor who taught her the laungage and during her time living here, has grown very fluent. Leecey's twin brother, Michael, has a crush on her. Her alter ego is "Ninja Kayo", with the powers over earth and nature.

There are three other ninja's and these all happen to be boys. I hope to be able to show them in the future.

I'd like to do a small series of pictures of my magical girls, and here's the first of them.

13 year old Yume Kirameki's alter ego is "Dream Sentinel Yume", who purges evil nightmares from the innocent people who they possess. I plan to draw each girl side by side there forms for comparison.

A character for my series "Guardian Alliance". The Guardian Alliance is an international league of superheroes, humans born with abnormal abilities who use them for good. Of couse, there are some who prefer to use them for evil. Our main story takes place in California and focuses on four teenagers in particular with various abilities.

This is "Guardian Robin". She has powers over air, able to manipulate the winds, cause tornadoes, storms, etc., and posesses the abilty to fly like her namesake. She's a cheerful sporty sort of girl by day.

I rather liked Snowdrops design, so, I decided to draw her ^^ Dunno who she belongs to, though I do know shes a fan character(at least Im pretty sure about that). I cant stress enough however she is NOT mine.

your drawings remind me of detective conan art style :P
in fact your whole style looks like it came straight out of the 80s or something its quite refreshing compared to all the modern manga people are drawing these days (me included :P)

my advice would be try and alter the thickness of the lines you use, especially on outlines and internal lines. when they are all the same thickness it seems kinda weird and nothing stands out much.
I assume for your digital work, you are using stroke path or the equivalent, try and vary the width.
unless it is your style of course :P

Post by: stardustpink on August 30, 2015, 04:19:52 PM
It does? Thank you ^^ I kinda like that. Mayby its because I like alot of retro things. Movies, cartoons, I prefer older stuff to new things for the most part. There are a few decently made things now but I think alot of gems came from the 80's and 90's. Some of it stuff I grew up on. Mayby thats a subconscious influence.

Stroke path, I guess you mean the Photoshop pen tool?On my older works, yes,thats what I used to do. BUT for my most recent including my last post of images, Ive started using a cintiq tablet instead.

As for style, uh, I dunno. People sometimes ask me how I do things and alot of the time Im not even really thinking. I just draw. Technical stuff goes over me 'ead
Title: Re: Stardustpink Art
Post by: suupertramp on August 30, 2015, 04:28:47 PM
yeah i love old art styles but i hardly draw them. if i ever draw fanart then i will use their style, but otherwise i miss it, shame really :P
must be really subconcious, even your body style is similar to the old art style, nowadays manga girls are really thin, but older animes/mangas had similar proportions to your work.

ahhh a tablet......hmmmmmmmm :P
very nice :P
I still recommend having thinner lines :P
try thinner lines overall, or just in part, i think it will make a huge difference. maybe try 1/2 the thickness you have been doing. it cant hurt to try, if im wrong then do what you normally do :P

sometimes its better to ignore technical stuff and just draw, but its good to have a base level you can work from to get the same results each time you draw, which it looks like you have anyway so no worries :P

My version of the Queen of Hearts and the Duchess from "Alice In Wonderland".

(http://pre05.deviantart.net/ffad/th/pre/f/2015/252/2/d/shinobu_and_shadow_by_stardustpink-d97dn8r.png)

Bat twins, Shinobu and Shadow.

Originally they lived peacefully in a small village, but it was attacked by outsiders, and many of the inhabitants killed. Including there parents. While fleeing the twins were separated. Shinobu returned to her village, but did not find her brother amongst the survivors. But not finding him amongst the dead either, believed him to be alive, leaving the village to find him and becoming a thief in order to survive.

Shadow suffered a fall during the escape, which cause him to lose his memories, hench WHY he dident return. All he could remember was his name and a faint shadowy figure calling him by it(this being his sister). He turned to theft also to keep alive. Thought it'd be interesting if the two took similar paths in life, twins believed to have a strange connection alot of the time. Eventually they are are united.

Usually Shinobu has her wings out, but they wouldve gotten in the way for this particular image

(http://pre11.deviantart.net/cd60/th/pre/i/2015/257/9/6/cute_kid_by_stardustpink-d99jsm9.png)

Just a little crossover I did. Vinnie from BMFM with one of my younger chars. The little girl, Yuki, is an original character of mine, an alien girl(aliens can often have human like appearences after all). This was something diffrent for me, Im not used to drawing anthros, BUT, it was summin new to try, and I think it came out pretty good ^^

I rather enjoyed this crossover and would like to do more with my alien girls from the same series.

(http://pre05.deviantart.net/da41/th/pre/i/2015/240/b/6/minta_rapunzel_by_stardustpink-d97gb93.png)

Araminta "cosplaying" as Rapunzel. ^^ She looks so CUTE in that dress, and I like how her hair came out. Looks rather natural and free flowing I think.



Been feeling better lately, just trying to get on with things. Since I worry about just about everything I figured, just DO it. Lifes too short and the only way to deal with fear and anxiety is to let it come. The more you try to avoid it the worst it gets. Easier said then done alot of the time :P And I do have my bad days, but I feel like Im really making progres and getting there. Most of the time I feel like my old self. And If Im gonna worry anyway may aswell create.

Right now Im aiming to get anything in my sketch book completed and then get back to comics. Trouble is alot of the time I wanna get everything done at once, THUS, you get overwhelmed and feel like your caught in a whirlwind, and nothing gets done. Funny how limiting yourself can give you more sense of control.

What I wanna work on now is "Araminta", and a magical girl series called "Cosmic Thief Silvia". Im starting with Araminta first as it has an easier setup, and see where I go from there. Ive been doing alot of concept art recently, desing characters, buildings, praticing my perspective and the like and diffrent architecture from diffrent times and countries(you set a story in japan for example it wouldnet hurt to know how to draw traditional houses). My aim is to also self publish, get myself out there more. In this field it seems like you gotta depend on yourself more than anything else. 

I have lots of other ideas and plenty of time to work on them, so I'll try not to go nuts wanting to do em all immediately. Sides if you got everything done immediately, what would you have left to draw? No fun then.

13 years old, Rika is a skilled invetor with an amazingly high IQ. She is the head of the company "Starflight Industries", which was originally built from the ground up by her father and considered the top industry in its field.

She is one of the main characters in a magical girl series I would like to work on soon, but it requires a little more planning and design. In due time however I hope to get to work on it.(http://pre03.deviantart.net/4af0/th/pre/i/2015/257/b/f/snowbunny_by_stardustpink-d99jstj.png)

Jack Frost ^^ Inspired by those little snow rabbits you see in manga all the time? Little round balls of snow with leaves for ears. Thought it'd be fun to do summin similar with Jack

(http://pre04.deviantart.net/7942/th/pre/i/2015/263/5/0/group_maho_by_stardustpink-d99jsuc.png)

A group shot of all my main magical girls! ^^ Some have team mates, while Yume for example is a solo heroine.

From left to right:

Yume:Yume Kirameki is a daydreamy kind of girl, who lives with her mother and loves to draw and paint. Lately however she keeps having the same strange dream over and over, even in class. These dreams turn out to be a message, a premonition of sorts, when one night she is visited by Yueh, the rabbit of the moon. He explains to her the the evil Queen Nightshade, ruler of the realm of nightmares, is attempting to take over the mortal world by infecting peoples mnds with evil dreams, which allows her to manipulate them like puppets and turns there hearts to darkness.

Leecey: Leecey Cherrywood is a cheerful, energetic girl who is something of an otaku. Her favourite series is "Warrior Princess Azumi", an anime, manga and game series. Her love for this show becomes something of a reality for her when she is chosen to become "Ninja Mitsuki." Im thinking the monsters she fights are based on Japanese mythology.

Silvia: This story is a little different from all my others, including in the magical girl sense. Its set in outer space for one, and has slightly darker themes compared to the others. Silvia Twilight was once an ordinary young girl from the planet "Eternus", with dreams of becoming a singer. That dream somewhat comes true when she finds herself mixed up with the Prince of her home planet, Satoru, an alter ego and a plot to bring down the corrupt head of the Galatic Police, who has his finger in a number of evil schemes and has entire galaxy snowed. Along with her team mates, by day the are the girl band "The Silver Twilights", but while trying to stop and bad doings, they are "Cosmic Thief Silvia and the Galactic Girls". This is something Im VERY EXCITED about and hope to work on soon, just needs more planning.

Aya: Aya Damon is a quiet, polite young girl from a rather big family, but shes always felt different somehow. She has never really known or been able to explain why however. She discovers when she is dragged into another world, known as "The Glen of the Fairies". Her father was a air fairy, though he had kept it a secret, falling in love with a human woman and living as a human, so she has blood of the fae in her. Now she has been chosen to take the place of air amongst the "Elemental Fairies", who are kinda the leaders of each specific kind of fairy, by the Fairy Queen.

Alot of these stories do admittedly have some plotholes and details to fill in, and even some changes (placeholders and stuff). Alot of these I came up with when I was very young, and some things dont always sound so good when we grow up :P And require some maintenance as a result. We learn as we grow I spose.

Some are more well developed than others but hey, you cant have everything figured out at once. And a good story takes time. I hope when they are ready though everyone will enjoy them, and the standalone art. I know Im excited to give them life.

(http://pre07.deviantart.net/16a2/th/pre/f/2015/257/0/c/dont_bug_me_by_stardustpink-d99jsus.png)

Cleo is a Mummy, very quiet, stoic, but has a deep love for cats. She often wears the same uninterested expression, rarely smiling or anything. Rotgut is a Zombie, cheerful, goofy, kinda daft, and has a huge crush on her stemming from when they were little. A love that never wanes no matter how much she gives him the cold shoulder XP

Happy Halloween!

A story set in 1600's, during the times of new world exploration. Dario is 13 year old boy from a small fishing village in Italy, who dreams of being a great explorer. Tayanna is an Aztec girl from a tribe who managed to escape the spanish conquer, living hidden from the world. Tayanna is the keeper of a magic amulet, which opens the door to an ancient temple full of treasures.

In this image the two kids have snuck aboard a ship, hiding below decks while on there journey. I was able to use different colours to create a certain mood for this drawing, something Ive not done before

Two characters from "Cosmic Thief Silvia", Kogane and Yuki both come from the same planet, "Blissa".

Kogane is a quiet, gentle girl who volunteers frequently at her local church. She always wears a gold crucifix around her neck that belonged to her mother, and previously her grandmother. Her parents died when she was young, and her older brother became her legal guardian once old enough.

Yuki is a 8 year old from "Lost Stars Orphanage". Her family were caught in a car accident. They were killed instantly, while Yuki survived. She deeply loves Kogane, who volunteers at the orphanage along with the church, seeing her as a mother figure.

I certainly hope things work out alright for the Pines twins. Hate to see a repeat of Stan and Ford.

I wonder though, why did Bill trap Mabel in a bubble? What was the purpose of that? I suppose everyone has there theories about it as they seem to with such cartoons, but we'll probably know for sure next week.

(http://pre01.deviantart.net/fdd5/th/pre/i/2015/323/8/3/oz_by_stardustpink-d9c27q6.png)

When 13 year old Dorothy visits her Aunt's farm for the summer, she finds a beautiful pair of silver shoes in the attic. When she slips them on she's suddenly whisked away to another world, "Oz". The land of Oz is in a state of chaos, the Wicked Witch of the West having taken over, her stronghold taking place in the Emerald City. Whats more, the rightful ruler of the land, Princess Ozma, has been missing ever since. The silver shoes were sent to one who could aptly use there magic. Though they werent expecting a little girl.

An idea I have for a more modern twist on the old Wizard of Oz tale. The old books offer a lot to work with, there's quite alot in this series. I would like to someday work on this as a real story, so, lets see what happens.

(http://pre12.deviantart.net/08e1/th/pre/i/2015/278/4/f/rapunzel_by_stardustpink-d9c29qr.png)

Two characters from "Lil Red". Rapunzel is a shy, soft spoken girl who runs a hair salon. She is often seen by the shop door sweeping out hair. Here she is brushing out Ducky's hair, which tends to get very wild. I love her long soft looking ponytail. Originally I was going to make it tumble around the floor, but that'd be very hard to draw all the time. But this length still looks very lovely and you get who the characters meant to be.

At first the story just focused on Red and Wolf, but since then its really grown and changed, the side characters developing more personality and back story, and so Id like some of the focus to go to them too.

Others to appear will include: Cindy(Cinderella), Beauty and her Beast, Francesca and the Frog prince, Hansel, Gretel, Snow White and the dwarves, Kari(The Little Mermaid") her "prince", Thumbelina and Tom Thumb.

A manga story Im excited to work on when I can. The story is scifi slash magical girl. Set it outer space, the main character is 13 year old Silvia Twilight. Think Maho Shojo meets Jem and the Holograms

Bottom to top:

Silvia: The main character, she is a young girl from the planet "Eternus" who loves music and to sing. Her dream somewhat comes true when she is contacted by Prince Satoru, one of the monarchs of her home planet. Armed with a plan to bring down the corrupt head of the "Galactic Police Force", transforming cellphones and a front as the popular girl band "The Silver Twlights", Silvia and friends aim to fight for justice. "Cosmic Thief Silvia" he is passionate regarding music, and artists she enjoys in particular are "Lady Gaga" "Madonna" and "Queen".

Mariko: From the planet "Cyrus", Mariko is a tough, firecracker of a biker girl. Abandoned outside the back alley of a bar as a baby, she was brought up by the taverness who found her, acting as her foster mother. Growing up in such an environment around so many men is what gave her such a tomboyish attitude. Her alter ego is "Galactic Girl OJ" and she plays electric guitar in there band. Her musical tastes include "Aerosmith" and "The Ramones".

Kogane: A quiet soft spoken girl from the planet "Blissa", shes the bands keyboardist and "Galactic Girl Indigo". She spent alot of her time in the church and was part of the choir. The teams peacemaker and often the most levelheaded of the group. She wears a gold crucifix around her neck that belong to her mother and grandmother. She likes "Celtic Women" and "The Beatles"

Rika: From the planet "Lantis", she originally created the phones that transform them, but never dreamt she'd be one of the users herself. She is considered a child prodigy and her IQ is amazingly high. "Starflight Industries" is the top scientific company in space, that was built from the ground up by her late father. When she turns 16 the company will officially be turned over to her, but she still handles production, orders and construction behind the scenes. Shes "Galactic Girl Scarlet" and the teams drummer. She loves techno music, her fave bands being "Owl City" and "Daft Punk"

Yuki: An 8 year old orphan and the youngest of the team, she was in a car accidnet with her family years ago. Her parents died instantly, while she survived, coming to live at "Lost Stars" orphanage before becoming part of the time. Also from "Blissa", she is "Galactic Girl Cerulean" and plays bass guitar she is a very sweet little girl. She is very close with Kogane who volunteered at the orphanage, seeing her as a second mother, and Mariko, who fits the cool older sister catergory.  She likes cutesy JP and DDR music.

Im really eager to get started on this in due time, that's the plan anyway. Work along this with Araminta


Update on Araminta, the script for Issue 2 is completed, so hope I can draw that soon. Issue 3's is nearly completed too

This'll be my last post before the New Year, so, Merry christmass ya'll!

Conker and Pipsy! A fan of Conker the squirrel, Ive seen some pictures of these two as a couple, and thought them seriously adorable. Since both were originally Diddy Kong Racing characters this seemed especially appropriate a pairing.

Kinda funny how Conker started off as any typical cute furry gaming character, to getting his own spinoff with rather lewd and adult humour. Personally though I think thats what makes his character so awesome X3

Being King must have some perks to it after all

Both are naturally grown up in this picture. Would like to draw more on these two I reckon in the future.
Title: Re: Stardustpink Art
Post by: DBNext on January 01, 2016, 11:01:30 AM
Pretty unique style.
I say work on the hands. In some cases they're decent, but in this one, for example:
(http://pre01.deviantart.net/fdd5/th/pre/i/2015/323/8/3/oz_by_stardustpink-d9c27q6.png)
/\ The girl in pink on the right has 2 different hand sizes. Her left hand has thin fingers, while her right one has chubby ones.
Another thing I noticed is you tend to draw the mouth and the nose almost horizontally close whenever the character is not looking directly at us, which feels off.
Finally, I feel like the eyes have room for improvement. Look at pictures 1 and 2 for reference:

(1)
(https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xla1/v/t1.0-9/945557_1095220900517975_2026213067318301878_n.jpg?oh=8c6679428308f31c479a1d2f415d8577&oe=571B336B&__gda__=1461627613_de60699db3d8b7d097224a40a3e3be66)

(2)

Eyes vary in size whenever perspective is involved. However, in your case (1), the face is ever so slightly tilted, so the perspective at play isn't strong. Therefore, the eyes should be almost the same size (2), with the one on the far end being slightly smaller.

My character Hayako Kimura, is a very cheerful energetic girl. But thats not truly how she always feels on the surface. Her parents died in an accident when she was 8, and not knowing any other way to cope at such a young age, just smiled. Now thats how she deals wth everything, smiling even when she feels like crying, in particular so her friends dont fret over her

I find this is true in real life. People often act like there so happy so the people they care about dont worry about them.

So, the ending to Gravity falls… It was INCREDIBLE. While Im sad it ended so soon, its the perfect ending to a wonderful cartoon. So many emotions, excitment quite a bit of excitement. And such a happy ending. I just couldent stop watching, it had my attention the entire time.

If your a fan and you havent seen this yet, DO IT! Your missing out otherwise.

When a fantastic series gets a fantastic ending too, all the better.

Thank you Alex Hirsch for creating such a great show. Your awesome dude

Although they've not had much screentime together, and I wish they did, I like putting Bill and Mabel together. I guess this is kinda a "What if". Remember when Mabel ran off upset after learning Dipper would be staying Gravity falls? What if Bill had come to her as himself instead of disguised? What if he had offered her a way to keep things the way they are? An endless summer?

I imagine Mabel would be hesitant, knowing you cant trust Bill, but in her upset and vulnerable state, would she be tempted? Would she say yes? Im sure Bill would take advantage.

Working on Araminta pages right now, hope to get them done soon and update it regularly.

@startdust pink i love art dumps :P
i cant pick out a favorite though i love them all, i love the fairy one, i love the second last one where the boys is holding/catching the girl, i love the last one with everyone. i just really love your art style. i do think on some drawings the eyes are a bit far apart, but your style is not based on normal proportions so i can let that slide :P
i think it would be nice to see a bit more shade or detail in your drawings as well, especially on the clothing, but overall the simple style is really really nice :P

do you mind if i borrow your art style :P

*Blushing like crazy*Aww geez X3 Thank you. The catching one is Tom Thumb and Thumbelina, and last one is a rendition of Robin Hood.

Thats fair, I do think that sometimes myself on the eyes. And yeah, cartoons and anime in general arent very realistic proportion wise. Anime is the best example, if peoples eyes were actually that big...XD

As for details Im working on my backgrounds these days, using real photographs and such as reference. Buildings and such. This also helps practice my perspective. Dunno if thats whatcha had in mind butttt, thats just somewhere i think I need to grow

PS. Im glad you like ny style so much X3 Thats quite possibly one of the nicest things Ive heard

A character of mine, for a short story I have in mind. A fairly simple story set in the Victorian Era. Im rather interested in this time setting, amongst others, so I wanted to do a story in that time.

Ellie Copperfield is a 13 year old orphan living in these rough times as a flower seller, trying to get by with various dangers all around. Hunger, sickness, all sorts of things.

yes backgrounds is one of the things i was thinking of, but i meant more folds and stuff on the clothes. trouble is your style is simplistic, and i think adding more detail might also be out of place as well. its hard to explain. keep practicing and drawing, and your arts will improve :P
figured it was robin hood or something similar :P
do you ever draw from reference, real life (or manga)? that has many benefits in improving one's drawings.

Alot more these days yes, although with real life its photographs(just easier especially since then your models keep still). This is especially handy for tricky poses or backgrounds involving buildings. And I find you often learn more looking at real manga than those "How To Draw Books"

Ive found alot of old artists use references and its interesting to see the process. Norman Rockwell for example

I think you can add more detail and still keep your simplistic style. Id say for a style like this, dont focus so much on anatomy, but maybe Focusing on your lighting and perspective can make a huge difference, without changing your style. I notice you use two tones alot in your coloring (one light color one dark color). I understand this can be a style choice, but why not try blending the lines between your light a dark colors just a little. Also try your hand and one point or even two point perspective drawings somtimes. I think a just adding these small details wont change the core of your art style but could add a proffetional "pop" to your art.

Ah thats good, thank you. I suppose your right on the latter. Admittedly legs are harder to draw, at least I think, than arms. I guess cuz there more shapely

lovely as always, i love the 3 girls one and the guitar one, although on the guitar one, i think the blue haired one is too far low, like she is not only going through the other character but through the floor as well. if she is meant to be younger then its almost better, but its hard to tell because the proportions of both characters are similarish.
good work, and well done on drawing so much in a short space of time :P

^^' Well to be fair on getting so much in such a short space of time, its just that Ive had a lot going on and did a bunch at a time working on various projects? Some of these were in limbo for quite awhile. And recently I just decided to finish them off completey. Since most were close to completion it didn't take long, hench why it seems like Ive suddenly done them all now.

The three girls in there pajamas?

The guitar one, had alot of truble with that one admittedly, getting the poses correct and such. It was difficult making Yuki(thats the blue haired girl) fit in Marikos lap. She is 8, Mariko 13 so yeah, she would be quite a bit smaller, but it was hard getting the anatmy right. Wouldve been harder if I kept in her usual hat, would've covered Marikos face

ahhh, well in that case well done on finishing up a bunch of older stuff. having half open projects can be a real pain, so it feels great when you finish them off :P

yeah drawing hard poses can often fail the first few times we try, i know mine dont even make it to a final drawing most of the time. practice and you will be able to draw a larger range of complex poses, even involving 2 or more people :P

The residents of the village "Grimbrooke" Most of the main cast are based on characters from Grimm's fairy tales, with one or two Anderson. Though I'm not sure what "Tom Thumb" and "Beauty and the Beast" are. I dont believe there either, the latter is a french story I've heard. I remember reading a story very similar though in a book of Grimm's called "The Lady and the Lion"

The cast members are from some of the best known fairy tales, with there own twists in there backstories and differences to there origins.

Dario and Tayanna dressed like Italian nobles. I think Tayanna looks especially beautiful and exotic in the garb of the upperclass of the time. I plan to do another picture of the two dressed in clothing of her kind. Dario is Italian, Tayanna Aztec.

Silvia free fallin down the side of a glass building, her normal form reflected. I imagine she just transformed while doing this (I reckon her suit grants her flight abilities along with her agility, strength and energy attacks).

I would love to use this as a comic cover. The first script of "Cosmic Thief Silvia" is actually complete. A bit more design work and getting up the guts, I would like to get started on her soon. In fact Im very excited about this project. Magical girl, sci fi, and slightly darker compared to much of my other works. To quote:

(http://img12.deviantart.net/8952/i/2016/033/e/d/cosmic_thief_silvia_and_the_galactic_girls_by_stardustpink-d9ft56r.png)
(http://pre03.deviantart.net/bdc9/th/pre/i/2016/081/6/1/silvia_and_satoru_by_stardustpink-d9skqok.png)

Silvia: The main character, she is a young girl from the planet "Eternus" who loves music and to sing. Her dream somewhat comes true when she is contacted by Prince Satoru, one of the monarchs of her home planet. Armed with a plan to bring down the corrupt head of the "Galactic Police Force", transforming cellphones and a front as the popular girl band "The Silver Twlights", Silvia and friends aim to fight for justice. "Cosmic Thief Silvia" he is passionate regarding music, and artists she enjoys in particular are "Lady Gaga" "Madonna" and "Queen".

Mariko: From the planet "Cyrus", Mariko is a tough, firecracker of a biker girl. Abandoned outside the back alley of a bar as a baby, she was brought up by the taverness who found her, acting as her foster mother. Growing up in such an environment around so many men is what gave her such a tomboyish attitude. Her alter ego is "Galactic Girl OJ" and she plays electric guitar in there band. Her musical tastes include "Aerosmith" and "The Ramones".

Kogane: A quiet soft spoken girl from the planet "Blissa", shes the bands keyboardist and "Galactic Girl Indigo". She spent alot of her time in the church and was part of the choir. The teams peacemaker and often the most levelheaded of the group. She wears a gold crucifix around her neck that belong to her mother and grandmother. She likes "Celtic Women" and "The Beatles"

Rika: From the planet "Lantis", she originally created the phones that transform them, but never dreamt she'd be one of the users herself. She is considered a child prodigy and her IQ is amazingly high. "Starflight Industries" is the top scientific company in space, that was built from the ground up by her late father. When she turns 16 the company will officially be turned over to her, but she still handles production, orders and construction behind the scenes. Shes "Galactic Girl Scarlet" and the teams drummer. She loves techno music, her fave bands being "Owl City" and "Daft Punk"

Yuki: An 8 year old orphan and the youngest of the team, she was in a car accidnet with her family years ago. Her parents died instantly, while she survived, coming to live at "Lost Stars" orphanage before becoming part of the time. Also from "Blissa", she is "Galactic Girl Cerulean" and plays bass guitar she is a very sweet little girl. She is very close with Kogane who volunteered at the orphanage, seeing her as a second mother, and Mariko, who fits the cool older sister category.  She likes cutesy JP and DDR music.

Satoru: Prince of the Eternian Royal family, it is him who formulated this plan to bring down the Head of the Police force, who has a number of blood and crime on his hands, and any number of people in his pocket. In his position of power he is able to manipulate things as he likes, and while part of any evil doings, whether then be drug running, gun smuggling, slavery, all sorts of terrible crimes, is in such a position he has managed to always keep his name out of it, too slick to get caught. Witness's disappear, patsies take the heat, etc. Where traditional and polictical methods have failed, Satoru decides to go a diffrent route. Together with Rika, a longtime childhood friend and the Royal Family often doing buisness with Starflight, they created the supersuits that give the girls there powers and alter identities, aswell as the cellphones that allow them to transform. He acts as the girls manager, there cover as a band allowing them to travel easily through space customs without suspicion. Despite acting flamboyant and frankly crazy at times XP Satoru is a highly intelligent young man. He thinks the world of Silvia almost immediately and is openly infatuated with her(which frankly tends to drive her crazy as it is difficult to get him to act serious).


Thats the basics on the story and main characters to appear. I'd really appreciate some feedback on this idea in general I spose, as I reckon I will start on it very soon. By the end of the year ideally if not sooner

nice poses on the MLP collection!
i like the falling one, and i like the hairstyles on the girl band :P

i like the basic story concept, its sort of generic, but not necessarily bad of course. i think the characters have a very wide range of backgrounds which gives them very different personalities, which is good if you can portray that well in the story, it will make ti interesting. i think i would look forward to seeing this story :)

oh by the way, how do you get such neat linearts? ive had a bit of trouble recently trying to clean up my artworks, and i wondered how you did yours, since they are always so neat :P
do you use a tablet and just draw carefully, or paths/vectors and move into position?

Well with my most recent art, yes, a tablet. A cintiq to be precise which is alot easier than a regular tablet(especially on my neck). I like seeing what Im drawing so this is a real life saver. Ages ago I used the pen tool, but that took ages and is admttedly bad for the wrist, to use constantly?

Theres a few songs I think rather suit Araminta, her in particular that is, and have inspired some drawings. This is one of them. This was partly when I heard Gene Wilder, aka Willy Wonka, had passed on. I wouldve mayby like to have gotten it done sooner as a kind of tribute but art takes time. Im amazed really how some arists can make amazing art in honour or deceased actors in a short amount of time. This took quite awhile but I think the end result was worth it.

(http://img06.deviantart.net/8035/i/2016/205/c/3/always_follow_your_heart_by_stardustpink-da63dxc.png)


The canon couples of "Lil Red". and in some cases, the original fairy tales they come from. With this image I wanted to create an artificial watercolour effect, do summin diffrent with the colouring. And I think it turned out rather well.

Leighanna and Beast: Leighanna runs a flourist called "The Enchanted Rose", with the help of Beast. Unlike the original story Beast isent cursed, this is his true appearence. As a result some people are scared of him, but most look past the surface. Despite his looks hes a gentle soul, and his looks dont bother Leighanna in the least.

Francesca and Victor: Based on "The Princess and the Frog". Francesca is the daughter of nobility, and a very curious young women. She always has her head in a book, always wanting to learn. Her father encourages her, but other nobles of the court mock her and consider her an oddball, especially the other vapid empty headed ladies. Victor WAS the son of a noblemen who was cursed into his frog form, living in a pond. Francesca went out of her way to talk to him one day, not the least bit afraid. They became good friends and evenutally loves. Unfortuanlty a kiss wont break the curse like in some stories, they have tried, but she'll still love him even if he remains a frog. In this case I wanted to show its the person that matters, not there form.

Kari and Gavin: Based on "The Little Mermaid". Gavin is a sailor who came across Kari washed up on the shore after a storm. Taking her home and caring for her untill she was well, they grew close in that time. She lives in a very roomy tank in his home and he does everything to make her comfotrbale. Unlike the original story the male is not a prince, nor does Kari change into sea foam or give up her vioce for legs.

Tom Thumb and Thumbelina: Both little people born in the flowers, Thumbelina was found all alone as a baby by a human women. Unable to find her real parents she raised the tiny child as her Mother. When becoming a young lady herself Thumbelina wanted to see the world, so on the back of a bird, moved to Grimbrooke. She keeps in touch with her mother via letters. Tom was already living in a tiny house in the local gardens, where he is keeper, and invited Thumbelina to live with him. The rest is history

They all give a nice cheerful feeling. Most of them look kinda similar when it comes to the art style but I think their strongest trait is the coloring -very vibrant and lively. I especially like the effects you're adding for the backgrounds - they're very nicely done :).

Bit of a big art dump this time. Been working hard recently so theres quite a bit, including some srtuff appropriate for Halloween.

(http://img10.deviantart.net/328f/i/2016/283/1/b/halloween_festivities_by_stardustpink-dak3mzs.png)

This one in partic was naturally drawn for the Holiday, and it took FOREVER. Seriously, this nearly killed me, by the end I was a wreck. All these little detials. Funny enough I had to draw this on a bigger area just to get the effect I wanted(usually I just need A4). This time I used A2, scanned and sorta peiced the sketch together in photoshop. From there on I inked and coloured.

Heres some others.

(http://img02.deviantart.net/8c88/i/2016/285/b/1/a_touch_of_magic_by_stardustpink-dakqyoe.png)

Thorn Oakly. A British girl of Irish heritage, her mother and grandparents immigrating to England years ago. Her mother Saorise died when she was a little girl, most likely in a car accident, and Thorn inherits her painting talents from her.

She goes to boarding school despite the fact her home is mayby 15-30 minutes away. Shes on a scholarship, partly wanting to make things easier on her grandparents(good eductaion and free room and board makes it simplier), and tends to keep her troubles to herself. But she does stay with them on weekends and holidays.

Living an ordinary enough life, this all changes when she comes across the great mysterious sorceror, Elban, along with some of his students...

The Silvia girls a little older. The oldest girls are 18, while little Yuki is 13 by then. I think they all look pretty good.

Two new characters for a story I have in mind. "Klaus and Bee". Set in a nonexisetant era in America, Klaus Penbroke is an intellegent young man whos Grandfather is a highly respected detective, often consulted by the PD. Beatrice Nightingale, Bee to her friends, is a cheerful young lady born to a snobby upperclass family who see her as a disgrace.

Close friends they are brought together on a most dangerous avdneture when Klaus's Grandfather goes missing, possibly from foul intetions. The children often solve mysteries and come across much peril while trying to find the old timer.

(http://img00.deviantart.net/6aa7/i/2016/357/8/3/30_days__heidi_by_stardustpink-damyabs.png)

A book I've read many times, this is my personal rendtion of the little alps girl, Heidi.

If I remeber right, Heidi ages throughout the book. As young as 6 I believe in the beggining, about 8 or 9 by the end. In my renditon I've made her about 8 years old.

(http://img08.deviantart.net/4592/i/2016/35/f/4/30_days__one_love_that_has_possessed_me_by_stardustpink-daqye6o.png)
Inspired by the scene in the movie, when the prince discovered Snow? In this Snow's case however her love interest is Hansel.

(http://img01.deviantart.net/fbe8/i/2016/356/8/2/30_days__thumbelina_by_stardustpink-damyaym.png)
Yet another fairy tale pastiche. In this case Tom Thumb and Thumbelina. In Thumbelina's storys of course she always ends up with a Prince, like most fairy tale heriones, but I like putting her together with Tom.

(http://img05.deviantart.net/3285/i/2016/356/e/0/30_days__teen_araminta_by_stardustpink-dadntvz.png)
How Araminta would look, about, 16 or 17 perhaps? Some parts of her dont change ^^ I think even grown up she would keep alot of her more chidlike qualities and unusualness.

(http://img02.deviantart.net/a7c5/i/2016/356/c/3/30_days__cold_by_stardustpink-dapxj32.png)
Cassian and Araminta as a couple of homeless drifters. I have an idea for a short story with this scenario.

(http://img14.deviantart.net/098f/i/2016/356/6/c/30_days__peridot_by_stardustpink-daqqtis.png)
Peridot is a Crsytalite from the planet Gemsilica. She hates her name because it was just slapped on lazily(crystalites tend to have actual names like people as opposed to just refered to by there type, which si confusing and dull I think).

She is an orphan who was taken in by a wealthy politcian, but it was a political gimmick to make himself look good. He does nto care about her or even pay much attention to her. She hates him in return and cant wait untill shes old enough to leave and take care of herself. Beigned ignored like she is she tends to keep to herself and is a rather lonely kid, untill Prince Satoru goes out of his way to talk to her. She considers him her first actual friend.

(http://img14.deviantart.net/7376/i/2016/356/2/b/30_days__teenage_yuki_by_stardustpink-daqu966.png)
Yuki once she hits 13. The kinda kid into pastel clothes, J pop and Anime.

(http://img06.deviantart.net/35cb/i/2016/356/5/5/30_days__nobody_knows_by_stardustpink-darwovh.png)
A scenario in which Klaus and Bee get seperated, which can happen alot travelling like they do, and will do in the story. There are no closer friends than them, so being seperated and unable to find each other would be hard. Klaus is meant to look puffed out like hes been searching for her for ages.

(http://img07.deviantart.net/f349/i/2016/356/7/a/30_days__little_prism_girl_by_stardustpink-das08hd.png)
Pollyanna, from the book of the same name. I like how the little bits of rainbow came out, should like to use that effect again.

(http://img07.deviantart.net/fe69/i/2016/356/1/a/30_days__candy_apple_by_stardustpink-daquvzv.png)
Snow loves apples, so Hansel being a candy maker offers her a token of affection.

(http://img02.deviantart.net/d60d/i/2016/360/4/e/30_days__silver_moon_by_stardustpink-daqfrb8.png)
A parody and Im sure you can guess of who XP I should like to actual make a short story based on this. "Phantom Mask" is a suave and charming theif who goes around stealing, but as it turns out, its almost always for a legitamate or noble reason. "Silver Moon" does her best to stop him, but finds it hard to stick to her job when he flirts with her all the time.

(http://img02.deviantart.net/f6e8/i/2016/356/c/e/30_days__nothing_quite_like_a_friend_by_stardustpink-dascvb0.png)
Little Peridot and Prince Satoru. Being her first real friend shes quite attached to the Prince(even going out of her way in attemtping to set him up with Silvia.)


(http://img11.deviantart.net/1406/i/2016/360/7/9/30_days__podlings_by_stardustpink-damyaou.png)
A family of "Podlings", a race of tiny little people. Siblings, the eldest Gavin, middle child Pipkin, and youngest and only girl, Gelfie.


(http://img12.deviantart.net/1afd/i/2016/360/c/d/30_days__the_little_undersea_girl_by_stardustpink-damyanw.png)
Saorise, a little girl whos able to swim and breath underwater like a mermaid, and speak with marine life. She and the Podlings will appear in Araminta stories

(http://img04.deviantart.net/50d6/i/2017/006/d/d/30_days__defying_gravity_by_stardustpink-daij2wp.png)
While Aya is half human, Aden is a full bloody fairy, born and bred in the Fairies Glen, aswell as being the halflings love interest.

Yes and no. Its a bit of an artdump from the last time I posted here(easier to post every so often than every time I do I single picture), but I also did a little challenge recently to myself, do an image every 30 days, which I did. So thats quite alot indeed.

Aww thank you ^^ Really? Ah, dang >< Ah well, trial and error as it were. Hopefully I cna et better with practice in thta area. These days I find Im more eager to try mixing real life elements(photographic backgrounds, items, etc), with digital drawings, like the one you just mentioned.

Ducky and another Grimbrooke village child, Abby. There close friends, perhaps more so when they grow up.


(http://img03.deviantart.net/31c3/i/2017/102/f/b/class_roster_by_stardustpink-db5j2qx.png)

The most regular students of Spooksville's High School, "Amity High". If I ever get this off the ground, I should like the stories to have a kinda sitcommy feel to it, focusing not only the main characters but there classmates now and then too. Alot of the names are refrences to horror movies. Actors, characters, directors. See if you can figure out which and where they come from

(http://img05.deviantart.net/89ff/i/2017/081/e/9/by_the_river_by_stardustpink-db32qxr.png)


I'm very fond of classic children's literature, and have read many titles. Its funny how much the books tend to vary from there more famous adaptions. Two of my favourite old stories are "A Little Princess", and "Heidi". Im also rather fond of the Tom and Huck stories, I like the element of adventure to them. In this image, Tom, Becky and Huck are playing down by the river. I like the idea of all three children ebing friends and going on adventures in Missouri. This image was mostly inspired by the ending scene in the movie "Song Of The South", with the kids singing and coming across the animals in Uncle Remus's tales?

I DO feel like somethings missing in this image, and Im not quite sure the children's feet quite meet the ground, feels like somethings not right exactly. How to go about it Im not sure, BUT, once I figure out how, I shall fix it. Otherwise though I think its a pretty lovely piece.

(http://stardustpink.deviantart.com/art/Lost-At-Sea-677247855)

Was asked by somebody to draw a tattoo for them. They specifically asked for sailor girls Wink/Razz  Whether it actually gets used or not I had fun drawing it. I emulated the style of one of my fave artists, Junko Mizuno.

(http://img13.deviantart.net/2c82/i/2017/106/5/5/picnic_by_stardustpink-db56fnl.png)

Ducky and his adoptive parent,Wilhelm the Woodcutter. When Ducky ran away and managed to find his way to Grimbrooke, Wilhelm took him in. He often takes him working with him and here there stopping after a hard day taking lunch.

(http://img04.deviantart.net/8b93/i/2017/106/9/9/pippi_longstocking_by_stardustpink-db60p6a.png)


Daughter of a sea Captain, rich as a goblin, strong as an ox, Pippi Longstocking is one of the more strange literary figures.  I should like to do a manga adaption someday.

Here is the funny little red head with her pets Mr Nilson and Old Man.

(http://img04.deviantart.net/1c35/i/2017/128/9/6/photo_booth_sticker_by_stardustpink-db8j16g.png)


Little bit of Gorillaz fanart with a twist. A little crossover meeting between Noodle and my character Yuki. Both girls are the youngest and guitarists in there respective bands. In this image there meant to be the same age, thirteen.   

Based Noodle's look as she was in Feel Good Inc? I just thoguht she was cutest in that appearence, so personal preference there. The drawing is meant to look like oen of those japanese photo booths, where you can play around and customise the picture? Was rather fun messing around with all the background elements(http://img15.deviantart.net/c1ac/i/2017/124/8/b/diamond_princess_by_stardustpink-db834ha.png)

A princess in the ruins of a once thriving kingdom. A bit of a spoiler regarding a story idea really but whatever, i wanted to draw it.

A selkie child and young irish boy, diving the deep.

Recenlty I discovered these lovely fantasy creatures. Selkies are magic beings that are seals when here in the water, and shed there magic coats when they walk on land. They cannot return to the sea without there coats. I've put the girls one around her neck, and its woven with a net and pearls.
(https://img06.deviantart.net/8484/i/2017/169/9/b/let_the_music_play_by_stardustpink-dbd5tql.png)

Music is Silvia's passion, whats important to her. So I drew her at 11 years old surrounded by many favourites and greats. Course most of these wouldent be vinyl, BUT records have been coming back, retro being cool and this being a scifi story, they could be made into them certainly. Meant to be kicking back on the carpet of her bedroom.

"Queen" is her favourite, she idolizes Freddy Mercyry, so I made sure the one close to her chest was them.
(https://img02.deviantart.net/79c1/i/2017/193/4/9/london_au_by_stardustpink-dbel1um.png)

An alternate reality with the Silvia girls as a band living in London. The oldest girls are 24, Yuki 13. And all sorts of rather strange things tend to happen in this AU, with them all being a little odder, crazier, etc etc.

Klaus and Bee paddling by the sea. While there storyline has no specific timeline, like the Batman Animated series, it is meant to have an old fashioned feel to it. So to be accurate the photo would be in black and white. So I did a quick render of such as an extra.

Rhythm, you have it or you don't, that's a fallacy
I'm in them, every sprouting tree, every child of peace
Every cloud and sea, you see with your eyes
I see destruction and demise, corruption in disguise

I don't know why it reminds me of like 90's anime, might be just be the bright colors and rounder eyes but its pleasant and faintly nostalgic to me

I love the range of characters you create, and the amount of complete pieces you draw. A lot of us here post a lot of sketches and every now and then something finished, so its nice to see regular high quality :)

that last one has quite a different style to it, maybe even more chibi than normal? I love the girl being held she looks like she doesnt know what face to pull out of embarrassment :P
Maybe when using solid black clothing, use a line of white to differentiate the parts otherwise it can be a little confusing.
ahh its the liney eyes instead of the roundey ones you normally do. I like both!

I tried to draw a character with the same proportions as what you normally use and found it quite difficult, maybe because I wasnt used to it but either way your characters are always in a very consistent style.
