So I’ve recently found out about a new free art program called Krita, and…I have no idea what to make of it so far. The image above was my first test drive with the program and of course I will keep trying it out. I was pretty excited for it because it looked awesome (THE GAZILLION FREE BRUSHES IT ALREADY HAS) but right now I think I’m halfway regretting it.
reenave's pixel posts over on her deviantART reminded me of an animation I did and forgot to upload! XD
A quick animation of Lia Nelson aka Tangent Flash! This is the second time I’ve animated something but instead of using GIMP, I used Photoshop’s Animation…thing.
I just really wanted to see if I could do it on Photoshop like the cool kids do. :D
Here’s the first thing I tried animating once. (It’s old, you’ve been warned)
My last commission for a while and it was for my good friend Aio! :D This is Sakuri, one of his main characters, and the story this scene is based on, Melchior Party, is a sequel* to their story Birth of a Succubus!
You can read that here.
In fact, you can also buy it here! (Cover by myself too :3)
Check out their gallery for more stories, including their new one called The Sneaker Princess!
I believe so, sorry if I misunderstood ;_;
Same as with my Rocket card, this one was also meant to be done for MetaCon! Unfortunately I only managed to pencil it before the event started 8|;; So just now, I finished inking and coloring it :3
I’ve been reading a lot of Dennis O’Neil’s and Denys Cowan’s The Question series from the 80s, and well, I liked how Cowan and his inkers did the smoke in it, so I tried to imitate that. Ehhhh, I don’t know if it turned out good enough >.> I ended up covering most of the man of the hour! (or ‘man of the card’?) I did learn some sort of layering with colors traditionally, so that was good!
Also, people with no faces are super hard to draw, good god. I might have messed up that area ;_;
Also2, y’all should go read that 80s series if you can.
This card was meant to be done for MetaCon last year but I only managed to ink it before the event started. I finished coloring it today as a break. :3 You can tell I tried to play with perspective here, haha. I liked how her eyes turned out, and her jacket!
Everyone should consider checking out Icon. So great, especially this girl right there <3
P.S. This ain’t the Young Justice version C: In case anyone wondered why the colors (and the design) look different!
Stress-reliever, nothing more. I didn’t time myself exactly, but I think I took one hour on this. 100% done on Photoshop, including the handwritten links. (I got too mad at the type tool for taking so long to process…)
First picture of the year, too, whee~
So, uh, I remembered I was working on a Princess Knight fanart. There’s another WIP here. (I know I’ve been uploading a lot of those, sorry.)
Don’t mind the lines overlapping. Those’ll be edited out :D
In all honesty, I think I will be redoing parts of this pic and changing the layout. I don’t think the original way I was going to execute this idea is going to work anymore. Sapphire herself will be redrawn, because her face bothers me now. >.>
Apparently according to my files it’s been a year and some months I’ve been working on this one on/off. Whoa.
Another WIP! One goal I have this year (like every other year) is to try and churn out enough pages for A&C so that we can finally go into Chapter 3 and beyond 8I;; I don’t know if I’ll be able to do it as fast as possible, because some of the next pages are detail-intensive! That’s on me though xD
The woman on the left, leaning on the wall, I love how she turned out. But I think she might be disproportionate to the rest on her level. That hat was the first hat I drew that turned out well ;__; (Usually they turn out blegh.)
That’s right, it’s time for this year’s art summary! :D I’m cheating a bit here with some months but it is a summary 8I;; Uploading this now because my whereabouts are up in the air these next…three? two? remaining days of December x3
This year was…well, it was interesting. I did a lot of color work and this year started with me drawing a lot. Then it ended with finishing more color work and not drawing a lot. XD. Last year’s resolution of making more newer A&C pages went out the window, of course.
Still, because of my color work, I DID improve again in that area! The collab work is not posted in respective months because I didn’t think it was ethical to include them :) I made more comics too! I made Fragmented AND a 10 pager for another anthology! Making more comics is always a good thing!
Then of course, the highlight of this year was MetaCon! <3
Here’s to hoping 2014 brings more improvement and more pages!
Here are the links to individual pictures:
JANUARY: Fragmented, pg.11
FEBRUARY: Ara & Celi World 2, pages 21-22

JUNE: A short snippet from a new double page spread for A&C issue 1.
JULY: Legendary Beings Ara & Celi issue 1 cover
AUGUST: Finishing the remnants of issue 1. Oop. Short snippet of the back cover image.
SEPTEMBER: Tangent Comics ACEO-ATCs (originally done in the last few days of August however)
OCTOBER: A quick warm-up sketch I did of Setsu-P’s fan oc. (A Tumblr only post)
NOVEMBER: A panel from an anthology yet-to-be-published!
DECEMBER: Tangent Christmas
WIP of current page of Ara & Celi!
I started work on this one before MetaCon, so it’s been some months 8D;; I’ve been tinkering out some of the weird inking parts. This panel didn’t need much, though. (might fix that chin later xD) But I forgot this one had lots of crowds…so I had to go back, check to see if it all looked okay and continue inking the rest of the people. X_X;;
