as promised i return!

I'm doing alot of different pieces and stuff but these two are what I recently "finished" so to speak.
im finding out alot of stuff while doing them and will continue to work on the kinks that i keep running into when drawing. I really want to start going into backgrounds but we'll see!

1st one is Morag From xenoblade Chronicles 2 kinda gave up on that one towards the end because i wasnt too happy with it. I am redoing it in a different way so we'll see how that turns out. Second is of Soleil from fire emblem that I did for a friend. Time to keep on trucking.

As for the stories it started out as a fan fic but I realized the characters and their personalities changed so much it'd be better if i mold it into my own story. Its a faction war where one individual is born in one side if you'd call it the peaceful side and at the age of 7 he gets captured and essentially swaped with a princess from the "aggressive side" has his memories suppressed, they meet on the battle field and he has to make a choice between the two families and his past memories come back to him, then he has to pick a side and his family members obviously would react to what choice he makes. Deception lies, people knowing that he wasn't family not telling him the truth, brain wash, etc. but they still are the family hes most recent with

The other is the witch one, it has plenty written but im still gonna go back to it and fix it up. among that there is alot more i'd like to continue to write but getting gud at art is a bit more in the focus. actually going into colors later today

Welp! Its been a while since ive come here and I knew some of my old stuff was still on and wanted to see the progress i've made since the last time i posted. Its been a little bit under a year and even though I still see more room for improvement its been a blast getting here! I tend to stay focused and do instead of say, so I'm sorry that i wasn't so active at all.

Though, I have to say joining the discord group that we had was a great way to propel my drive to draw! Which is funny, because I joined here as a writer haHaa.  ( i still like writing and stuff and still plan on to develop the stories ive had) Big shoutout to everyone whos helped me over this time, i'm glad that we we're able to meet! But anywho! Here are some not all of the  recent stuff ive done in the past week. These are part of a story that ive been floating about, armor and such. I think i'll break from these after a bit more and try some other genres maybe some mechs or things like that! then eventually get into more understanding of color and shading


All in all, i'm quite happy with what i've got so far, but pushing further is my goal right now. Hopefully you'll see me more when I get better, Back to it!

Develop Your Story / To Hide A Human!!
« on: September 12, 2017, 11:13:38 PM »
Okay! So following the advice of a good friend I wanted to re-write the story in a different way that was more presentable. With this in my I tried not to make things too simple this time around and go all out with it and being more elaborate with my scene's and word choices. In reality this is probably more tailored to how I like writing. With this in mind I do have a certain medium I want it to head towards and as I continue to practice drawing hopefully I can do that pretty soon.

So some disclaimers, All this is subject to change and some grammar nonsense is bound to appear! Though I did try my best to catch everything. I set myself to re-write at least one chapter a day so I kind of have to keep trucking through!(On chapter 5 atm!) Now I'm not sure how formatting is gonna work with me but I'll just copy and paste it from docs. Anyway here we go with the main synop. since it sums it up pretty well.

Kou walking home one night stumbled upon a book thrown about on the floor. Upon picking it up and opening, a bright flash appears which causes his eyes to take some damage and passing out. When he awakes he looks towards the sky and lo and behold he sees something quite strange. Brooms, and what's more people riding on them! Upon realizing such a situation he sits down to recollect his thoughts when a object flies straight down to his head. After retreating it, hes greeted with a girl, Yami claiming that the book was hers. When she sees Kou's eyes she becomes excited. Little to Kou's knowledge his eyes has changed colors dramatically! Yami decides that Kou is infected with an illness and has little time to live. Claiming she is a witch Kou finds himself in a unreal situation!  Kou with all this information pleads the girl to help but will she lend him a hand? What exactly does this world of Witches have to greet Kou with?! What sorts of dangers will arise?

So I plan on merging both a fantasy element with a serious undertone and thats were the writing generally was heading before, I just think this way its more presentable as things are now more fleshed out. I Love steins gate so I was listening to a lot of the tracks while writing so I'm not sure if itll do much but it did help me focus so you should listen to a few if you do read it!(Either the steins gate 0 logical or newcommer in the ost's) Kind of had it on loop so yeah... As such, I think you should know what medium I'm starting to head into!

Anway, here it is, the first chapter! Love it, hate it, Its bound to change and revise, so let see!

It was another normal day to say the least. The waking hours of going to school, the time seated at my desk waiting for the day to be over. To the exhaustion of walking back home. This normal course of events never really bothered me much. It was late and the whispers of nature were about making their presence known. I could recall how thunderous my footsteps echoed as I ventured home. It would seem that this gait of mine was endless, my steps never seeming to advance. Yet, there was one more thing that was prominent throughout this experience. It was the glistening moon peering into the world below it. It was beautiful how such a thing existed and how radiantly it defied the darkness of the night sky. As I continued, my foot ran into an object on the ground, It appeared to be a book.       
   I dusted off the book which seemed to be in rough condition as its cover and corners were in disarray. I assumed that this was the reason for it to be discarded like so, still, I had a feeling of disgust to whoever tossed it away like this. Upon inspecting it’s cover I realized that it was quite hard to make out. Or rather, it was in a language I’ve never seen before, its tattered pages tempted me to take a glance inside. Upon doing so I quickly realized that this book was quite extraordinary. Its detailed drawings illuminated throughout the pages which only increased my curiosity to continue. Then, at that very moment in which I turned to the next page, I was blinded. A pure white light shone brilliantly, forcing itself onto my eyes. The pain quickly became evident as the still night, welcomed my screams of agony as I held my eyes. Desperately I tried to scratch and rub off the sensation but it was persistent. My vision had escaped me and my beating heart rocketed into the atmosphere. After some time, in which I saw small patches of vision, I glanced at my hands which were trembling. They were covered in a red substance, it continued to drip through my fingers and splatter onto the ground. It was then when my legs gave, and I collapsed onto the cold concrete floor as my mind slowly reached a state of unconscious.
    With my mind regained, I was at a loss thrown onto the floor my body in complete fatigue. I decided to stand in which my head had seemed to inhabit large drums constantly banging loudly. I tried to regain composure to the best of my ability but even that eluded me. I faintly remembered what had happened before, in doing so I glanced at my hands. It was there I confirmed whatever had occurred. My hands faintly showed traces of dried blood, upon realizing it my body began to rattle.
  Just what had happened? That thought continued to echo throughout my brain. There was nothing that came even close to an experience like this. From what I could garner, it was now daytime. I looked to the sky in which threw me more into uncertainty, brooms. Broom’s flying throughout the air, to add insult to such a thing, there were people on them. I stood flabbergasted at the sight of such absurdity. My eyes were glued as they wisped past effortlessly through the air almost to the point of admiration. I took another glance towards my palms and touched the stains once more. It was then I felt the chills and sweat beginning to form and caressing my spine as it became fuming with heat.
   Those in the sky didn’t seem to pay any mind to my lowly being. As I began to walk, I noticed that the buildings around me seemed out of place, some in which even I had no recollection of. Noticing a bench nearby I decided to sit to calm my nerves and to relieve this sense of drain plaguing me. Closing my eyes I tried to muster together my thoughts however, the attempt was short lived. Judging from the trajectory of the impact, it would seem a object had fallen from the sky and made an impact on my head. The pain seemed to snap back my sense of reality as I rubbed the site of the pain. I glanced over to the object in which it was yet, another book. My hands began to cramp as I slowly made my way towards it.
    Glancing at it from a distance I couldn’t make out the cover, but it would seem my inner feline wanted to take the chance yet again. I picked it up and brought it over to the bench to examine it. This book was in good condition and was neatly preserved. I gritted my teeth and opened the book with hesitation. I flinched, however nothing seemed to occur like before. I began using my finger to guide my vision but It was impossible for me to make out anything. From what I could put together from the vivid illustrations, It would seem to be a book of medicine.
  I became all the more intrigued and lost myself in the pages. It was then when I felt a warm and soft sensation of padded feet run up my arm. I was startled by the small creature, it resembled that of a chipmunk. I shook it off fearing the possibility of being bitten by such a thing, however in doing so it landed right on top of the book. It gazed at me with its large eyes and slowly opened its mouth wide. It was then when a large amount of noise mimicking that of a tornado alarm radiated out of its mouth. I tried my best to block the sound out however, it still pierced through and rattled my eardrum. After a while it stopped and I was exhausted as I hanged off the side of the bench.
 “W-w-whhat did I d-do you stupid little animal?!”
I tried to scare it away once more in which it glanced back at me. Disgust was clearly presented on my face as I questioned how something so small could emit such a large amount of sound.
    A voice rang out from the sky that belonged to that of a girl. My attention quickly shot up towards the source in which she, was slowly descending down on top one of those flying brooms.
  “So this is where I dropped it, thanks Lilly, Oh..?”
  The girl directed her attention at me in which I could only stare back with a dumbfounded expression splattered on my face. I reconfirmed that these were actually people who were about in the sky.
  “Whats wrong?” the girl asked.
“Please  be a dream” My face had now gone under the influence of exhaustion as the girl curiously stared back at me. She glanced over to the small creature who was now sitting on top of the bench next to me once more.
  “Were you the one to stumble upon that? Someone was definitely reading through my book, you better have not taken anything from it you hear me?” The girl had a demonizing gaze as she peered towards me
   “How could I have taken anything from a book? I was looking through it, but.. How would you know?” It would be safe to assume that I might have opened it, but it seemed she was too sure of the fact.
   “What are you talking about of course I wou- Ah!” The girl dismounted from her broom and quickly rushed towards my direction.
  “W-whats wrong?!” I asked.
  “Whats up with your eyes! Let me see, let me see!” The girl held back my head quite abruptly and pushed her face closer to inspect my eye. It startled me in which I quickly refuted.
“D-don't go grabbing me out of nowhere!” What's with this girl? I asked myself as I created distance between us.
   “Hmm they do seem pretty odd now that I’ve gotten a closer look at them.” She said as she gazed at me.
  “What are you on about? My eye’s are perfectly normal..” At least my vision I thought, I’m not that forgetful to not remember what had occurred which felt just like moments ago.
 “Did you mess up a concoction or something? It does seem like a lousy job if you ask me but..”
   I was confused about what she had meant, it was a word I had little familiarity with. I know that it had to do with medicine of some kind, but how could that affect my eyes at all? Regardless her statement did worry me.
 “Do you have a mirror or cellphone on you? You're making me worry now.” I said as I began to touch and rub my eyes profoundly.
   “A m-m-..miii roor? Or a C-celll phoooonne?? I’ve never heard of those before.. Are they a spell?! What do they do?!” She said excitedly
  I was taken back by her lack of understanding of what these things were. I thought that maybe she was just someone who lacked such knowledge. With this in mind I asked her in a simpler way, “Something that you can look at yourself with. Do you have anything like that?” I asked.
   “Ah..., You're talking about a gaper, how boring. Here I thought those were spells I didn't know about, what a waste of my energy.” She said while pulling out a mirror like object out with a disappointed face as she handed it over to me reluctantly.
   I grabbed it and quickly brought it to my face in which I blurted out without my intention, “My eyes?! What happened to them?!” I continued to peer into the mirror getting closer and closer to affirm that my eyes were normal. However the dark brown tones of my iris had now transformed into a bright glowing red.
  “W-what?! Don’t go screaming like that you freak.” The girl said as she moved herself away from me.
   “Y-you! Fix this, y-you know about this right?! Something about spells or whatever, fix it!” I pleaded to her in which, with every word she took took a step back.
   “Ha.. ha,, Uhm.. No, good bye” She said with a stone face as she and her animal started to mount her broom.
   “H-hey! Wait! Hold on!” I grabbed the end of her broom trying to get her to remain where she was.
   “Ahh come on, let go you weirdo! I’m going to be late again, go find out on your own.” She said as she began to kick my hands off of the end of the wooden broom.
    I wasn't sure what to say to make her stay. I thought I could maybe manipulate her in some way with that in mind I tried to continue the conversation, anything that would stop her.
  “It was me who held onto your book right?!”
   “Not really, Lilly was the one who found it for me you know?” She said as she saw my sorrowful state with disgust in her eyes as I tried to plead. “Geez, aren’t you a witch too? Go figure it out and fix your own mess”
   “Witches…?” I knew what those those things were. But with the way I’ve seen everything up until now, comparing that to this girl would be impossible. Witches, were nothing more than fairy tales who prance about in black hats. To say the least it didn't even pass my mind when I saw them flying in the air. Witches? How insane is that I thought, normally you would associate them being clad in a black robe with green skin right? It would be foolish to compare this girl with something like that. She began to notice that I was at a loss for words.
   “What..? Did you hit your head or something…?”
   “I..” It was hard for me to even respond as I didn't know what the right words would be. I still haven't gotten a grasp of my current situation, let alone confirming if any of this is actually happening. Is my mind playing tricks with me? Surely that could be the case, or maybe I’ve fallen into some deep sleep dream? If it were that easy I would be at ease but i'm growing all the more restless. Almost to the point where I'm beginning to question my own sanity. Is this real? Am I aware? Am I well? My hands surely nodded towards a specific direction, but yet again, is it?
  “R-right, well then..” The girl slowly turned around to avoid my presence in which I spoke once more.
  “Hold it,” I said with a more composed manner as I took a deep breath.
   “What is it now?” It would seem she was starting to tire of the conversation.
  “What are you even late for?” To ask her something like this would delay her even further, but my only resource  was her at the moment.
   “To class of course, Ah-!” She opened her book in which bells appeared shooting straight up as they began to chime. “The bell… Gah… I can’t even go anymore..” She closed the book and turned her attention to me once more with demon like eyes.
   “Is that bad?” I asked to try and brush off the absurdity of what I just witnessed. Bells? That came out of a book to confirm a time? Granted it doesn't seem that extraordinary when you think about it. But for it to be something so animated and vivid? I had to maintain composure in front of all that while asking her.
   “Shut up, this is your fault..” She stopped hovering in the air and descended down her feet now on the ground.
   “Wasn’t it the book that you carelessly dropped that made you late?” I said as I tried to brush off the fact that in reality it probably was me that made her late. However, I had no guilt towards this in anyway. She sighed and then spoke.
  “In any case, what exactly did you make to change your eyes to look like that? It seems quite odd and abnormal.”
   “I don't know, I was walking home at night and happened to stumble upon a book that was thrown on the ground. When I looked at some pages a strange light appeared from it…” At least that's what I think what happened. Let alone it seems quite peculiar to say outloud even now.
   “What.. where exactly was this book that you found?” It would seem she was a bit more interested in what I had to say.
   “It was just on the side of the street, a block away from a mini supermarket, now that I remember.”
   “A suuuu..parrr market..? That's mini..?” She said while trying to spell out the words I tossed at her.
    “A store.. Of sorts..” I found it quite bizarre that she didn't know common words that would be used. Though, to say the least, she has used some words that seem alien to me as well. Contemplating my thoughts as to why, she interrupted by speaking.
   “I’m not entirely sure what that is, but the main thing is your eyes right? I might have a small hunch as to what that is.. But you need to act fast.” she said to me.
   “Why do you say that?” Just why would I need act hastily for anything?
    “It's possible that you've contracted a sickness, I’m not quite too sure of it myself but eventually you will die from something like that. Not that I have any intention of getting rid of it for you” She then began to open and flip through her book.
   “I see, that's great so you think it's possible?” In reality, my head was filled with screams asking myself If I would actually die from something like this.
   I contracted an illness? The whole thing seemed quite ludicrous for my ears. How would something so damaging be easy to contract? I thought about such a thing but it seemed like even with my own knowledge it was definitely possible. I tried to remain as calm as I could to prevent my body from twitching after hearing such a farce like that.
   “Quiet, let's go to the library, I don't have books for anything this specific at home.” She looked over to me “Now that I take a  second look, you do awfully stand out with that. Where exactly did you get that attire?” She reached into her bag and pulled out a gray hood with a gold outline and handed it over to me. “Take it”
   “What for..?” I took a look at my clothes and compared them to hers. It would seem that my attire did have certain attributes that seemed off but why was a cloak necessary?
   “I don’t want to stand out especially not with you. See, i’m wearing one too.” She said as she put over a similar cloak over her head.
   “Fair enough, If I remember correctly the library should be that way right?” I grabbed the cloak and put on the hood. If I could avoid it, I wouldn't want to antagonize her in anyway so I reluctantly accepted it.
   “You’re right, in any case where’s your broom?” She asked while peering behind me.
I didn't have a response to give her. As such I stayed in silence, regardless it seemed I was right about the location of the library but, from the distance I questioned if these streets were the same. It would seem my silence elicited a response from her.
  “Do you not have one..? I know the latest ones are a bit harder to infuse but, generally most people have them.”
   “Might I say I have no idea what the hell you're talking about?” My inner mind slipped and my words escaped me. She sighed at me and shook her head towards my direction.
   “You're useless you know that? Whatever, let's walk, once I figure things out leave me alone got it?” She said as she glared menacingly at me.
   I didn’t want to disregard her demands at the moment so I nodded in agreement to suffice. The two of us began walking from the bench area to the direction of the library. At this moment I realized the two of us were probably quite similar in age. Her hair was bright red and it reached slightly passed her shoulders to say the least it was a pretty color. Her emerald like eyes seemed to compliment it well. Upon looking at her, I realized that we haven't really introduced ourselves properly. I decided this was probably a good time to do so as we walked.
   “So uh..my name’s Kou.. thanks for trying to help me figure out what’s happened” I said haphazardly. My introduction seemed so out of place but, it was better than saying nothing.
   “Help? More like a desperate mutt trying to feed off scraps. I already told you, I’m not going to get rid of it.” She said rather crudely.
    “Was missing class that big of a deal for you? You make it seem out to be the end of your existence.”
    “Mandatory regulations make it a big deal for me, I wouldn’t even bother If it wasn't. What academy are you even from?”
    “I.. can't remember.” It would probably be wise to feign ignorance. There really isn't much I could say or do towards these types of questions.
   “You don't remember huh? The names.. Yami.. Looks like we made it.”
    Upon arriving I noticed the library in particular looks similar. It had the glass doors that were electronically capable of opening on their own. Sometimes they would require you to open them yourself during late hours. I reached out towards them but nothing seemed work. I then grabbed the handle and pulled but, the doors remained shut. It was almost as if the doors handles themselves were non existent. I continued to try but they didn't budge.
   “You okay over there?” Yami said as she opened the door effortlessly.
   Upon her doing so the buildings around me slowly began changing into run down cabins and sheds. They did so quite abruptly that I screamed out towards her. “What the hell is going on?!”
Everything that seemed normal had completely vanished without a trace and I was left baffled at the sight.
   “Maybe you do need to see a specialist as quickly as possible.” Yami said as she tilted her head sideways towards my direction.
  In order to calm myself I walked through the door and was greeted with a room filled with shelves of books that almost touched the ceiling. There seemed to be a very few people around as both me and Yami made our way to a secluded corner with a few tables hugging a window. I could only follow her as my nerves were still a bit rattled by the sudden change of things.
   “Enough standing around and help me, I don't have time for this” Yami quickly moved towards a shelf and began looking over them in a sophisticated way.
   I was enamored by the way she could pull out books from a glance that would interest her. Yami then turned to me as I was lost in the gaze.
  “Stop staring and help already you lazy scum.” She said as she sneered at me.
   “R-right what exactly am I looking for..?” I said rather confused.
   “Anything that has to do with light magic. According to you there was a bright light that appeared after opening that book right?”
   I didn't know what to look for but I began rummaging through the wooden shelfs that seemed so cleanly polished. With what little knowledge I had, all I could go off of were the illustrations painted on the tops and insides of the books. The language still seemed foreign to me, I could not make anything out of it. With this in mind I wondered how me and her could communicate with each other, however the question avoided me and I stumbled upon something similar to light. It had an inscription of lightning on it but this was the only thing I could muster up into presenting.
  “Something like this right..?” I said as Yami stared at me in disbelief. She turned her head and ignored me completely. I went back to the shelves to try to find something worthwhile but I began to get distracted by all the intricate text’s. After a while I glanced over at Yami who seemed to have found something that would help, I walked over to her and asked “Did you find something?”
   “No thanks to you but yeah.” She said as she quickly skimmed through the book once more. “There's nothing that directly sounds like what you've experienced or have, for that matter. This is probably one of the more older books this library has and nothing modern seems to fit your descriptions either.”
  “I,see..” Damn I thought, there wasn’t a single thing I could take from here to help me. I thought she would be my way of leading to something yet it seems that it was all for nothing. From behind us a voice rang out.
  “Yami..? Fancy seeing you here.”
   I looked over to see whom it belonged to and it was that of a girl similarly aged to us with long blue hair. It would seem Yami was quite startled when she heard her name being called out.
   “Go somewhere else” Yami replied towards her.
    “Now now, is that anyway to treat me? Who’s this?” She directed her attention at me “Say boy isn't there something wrong with your-”
  “Ah! K-Kou why don't you go look for a book about herbs for me over there?” She said hastily.
   I wasn't quite sure what she had planned but regardless I did as she told and went looking through the shelves once more. I could see the two would engage in a conversation, so I was generally interested in what they had to say. I began listening in from behind the shelf.
   “So that boy was with you huh how strange” The girl said as she glanced over into my direction.
    “Be quiet, anyway, do you know anything about abnormal light magic?” Yami asked her.
    “Surprised that you’re asking me of all people. Light magic… Why do you want to know something about that era? Witches have produced much stronger magic than that.” The girl replied however Yami remained silent.
    “Guess you can't say huh? Well, it was said light magic could be extremely versatile in use. I know it was rumored to be used in transportation of objects as well.”
    “Transportation..? Is anything like that even true? It was never really confirmed or denied in the books i’ve researched.” Yami replied
    “Who knows? It would have happened a long time ago. There might be something in the grand library. Getting in there is almost impossible though.”
    “Right.. So then there's nothing here about such matters… What about spells of concoctions that affect the eyes? Not the one those idiots use for looks.”
   “Hmm, now that you mention it there were notes that some people had odd features when using transportation magic. With this they were to determine who had used it. Since its taboo it's usually looked down upon.”
    “What would the punishment be for doing so?” Yami asked with a curious expression.
  “These could all be rumors but, it would probably be the normal standards, death. Remember that long contract we signed at the academy for reporting in any oddities that we may encounter?”
   “I’m well aware.”
   “Regardless, we could be tried for just not giving up such information if we see something strange, quite ridiculous don't you think?”
  “Treason huh..?”
   “Though Yami, who is that boy? It's strange enough for you to be here at the library with your selection you have at home, being with someone else is a bit-”
    “Leave already shoo shoo” Yami waved her off like a dog who wasn’t wanted at the dinner table.
    “Hmph, alright then bye for now, I’ll talk to you soon.” The girl waved at Yami and began to walk away into the other side of the room.
   “You can come out now, I know you’ve been listening in on us.” Yami said as she tilted her head behind her as she sat on the chair.
   “You knew..?”
   “Of course I would, so did you catch all that?”
    “Part of it yes..” I said, but in reality I heard every little word that they had uttered to each other.
   “Then, I think you know what needs to come next. As long as you comply-” Yami slowly stood up from her chair and began to turn to my direction.
   “No way”. I fastened my cloak as quickly as possible and began to go into a sprint.
   “EH..EH?!!” Yami yelled towards my direction.
As I looked back Yami was at the door of the library with shock splattered across her face as I ran off into the distance.

Heya peeps, been awhile since I've updated this. First and foremost, I want to say getting that invite was the best thing that could happen to me as I got to know some of you so much better. Not only that but you guys all helped me out substantially and I couldn't love you guys more! So to dev, shi, bobby, slam and everyone else that's in and out, thank you so much.

So! Like I was saying alot's been happening and I've been a busy bee so its hard to keep track of everything. So without further-ado, lets look at some of the progress so far.

Some hand and feet practice

Head angles since I found out I strugled alot with it during a workshop peice.

Some bodies as I continue to try to learn gesture and forms and what not.

And the fun stuff! One's a concept for the outfit for one of my MC's these are really fun to do. The two animals were simply done from bordem during a lul of time in which I didnt know what to do.

I probably have a lot more to put up but I'll leave it like this for now! Not everything is exactly right, and I know what I need to work on, but that shouldn't stop me from trying anyway right?! I'll continue to work on drawing as I am re-writing one of my stories, which will probably show up sooner or later.

I want to say thanks again to the discord fam, and manga raiders for giving me an opportunity to meet some really cool and talented people, lots of love to you guys!

We did it boys and girls, Its up and done(at least this volume anyway), hopefully I can bring this into a different medium though that looks pretty grim at the moment. It was super fun to write and I really enjoyed writing the characters,  I look forward to writing more of it in the future to compliment! Lets see what happens.

Critique for Devola's Week 1 illustration:


First of all, I love the whole pieces angle and buildings as it really gives a good depth into the town. I really like the way you   implanted people walking up the bridges and and balcony's in the distance which makes it all the more lively. It defiantly gives me a seaside port town, if that makes any sense.

I personally do not see many problems, but I do feel like there is one small quirk that's a bit weird and its how the long haired girl is attaching herself to the beam. I think, if shes pretty high up for which it seems it would be a bit difficult to holed onto something while looking in the direction of the sun one handing the top seems a bit too much imo. or if she is the hand should appear at the top a bit grabbing the edge. Or at least have her arm wrap around the beam itself. The beam too, looks too smooth so that would be a bit difficult to hold onto so maybe a rougher wooden structure would have been better to show this? I know the footing is supposed to help support her weight but again, an entire weight with the beam would cause slipping. Since she has her back turned, it would make more sense if she was closer to the beam and had the other arm wrapped around it. Trying to weigh yourself off that while leaning weight in the direction she's looking would be a bit hard.

This is really small, and I honestly dont think there's a problem either at a large scale. Its super nitpicky, but analyzing it, its the one trait that is a bit odd to me. It looks great anyway though man.

Name: Leave's
1: Draw a swing-set
2.Capture the feeling of young romance in terms of the characters expressions and body.
3.Get into drawing backgrounds ex.grass and world structures.


Alright, So we got there right Flames? So to sum up my experience with it am I satisfied no, do I have somewhat of a better understanding of things, i'd say yes. I tried to color some, really liked how I made the leaves so I left them. For one thing, Bigger resolution for details on face so I don't get a horrid pix-elated mess. Continue gesture practice, get  a better idea of perspectives. Should try to control some of my environment strokes for a more clean look. Don't draw a swing set(for the love of pepe). For an added bonus and the remains of my failed attempt the first time around in which I entered the 12 Dimension.

Second Illustration
Name: Panel 2
1. Draw Expression's on a variety set of chars showing emotion in a 4by4 Photo mockup.
2. Practice the head and hair.
3. Fully color and shade.(maybe)> Sry for bad flats : (


Alright, so we actually didn't jebait this time. Unfortunately after two panels our team of Flames Inc. suffered quite an amount of budget cuts and time constrictions. We understand and know, the eyes are extremely awkward and face structure. Please be advised that the staff has confirmed such an issue and will put the utmost effort into the coming weeks into learning how to do eyes and faces right among other things such as clean outlining and proper sketching. Thank you for your patience, we hope you will remain with us.

Flames Inc. Our goal is your imagination and eventually mine. Next up is probably to try and dive into more coloring and shading with this weeks failures in what to do.

Will keep that in mind while drawing .

The model i was using was in a stance thats slightly slanted since it isnt fully 2d or flat on the ground. I tried to bring out the hips on the left more since thats where the "weight" of the body was. The right leg was tucked in. Its still he same pose as the first one where i think it shows a bit better cause of the shirt. Was following the lines of the body so yeah.. Like I said this is where i'll probably have mos of my struggle in.

For the colors yeah, I could make them pop but this was more for reference than anything. I know she'll have red hair tho. I did a full color set of brownish but it didn't pop with her hair as much so I liked the white.

So I tried different outlining stuff and did a side by side. Granted the goal here was just to figure out what the char should wear and such. (It was still a toss up in the air even while writing). Outlines are messy and some of the cloths dont line up correctly with the body they sort of needed more of a curve to them I think.

First outline

Second (probably final in looks..?)


Some of the designs are diffrent in terms of the area towards the neck in terms of clothing. So there's that too, Also! I tried doing some faces I guess for fun.


Sort of gives a "what took so long" Look dont ya think?

Well, i think i might have been super ambiguous in saying/doing some mangaish chapters from the get go. Seemed a bit foolish to me too but I wanted to set a goal. Right now I think a more realistic approach is trying to shoot for some illustrations maybe 10-15 maybe a cover page. Having that in mind, we'll go from there. Would like to dabble my toes into some coloring stuff

Pages: [1] 2 3 ... 12
