My Father’s Ninja by JadineR
Bleh on title. I’m sure fans of the 2012 version will like it? XD
Anyway, wanted to do some chibi practice in between breaks. I’ve been thinking lately about whether my chibis looked more like cherub-faced kids or actual chibis. Picked Karai from the 2012 Nick version Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for it, plus some copic practice too.
I did a mix of her original outfit and a ‘typical’ kunoichi’s. Because I can :P (I’ve been mixing outfits lately, hahaha. I smell a trend.)
The scanned colors aren’t close to the original, but that’s just a given at this point. xP

Princess Knight by JadineR
New art, completed and nicely done? Huzzah!
All I’ve been doing is mainly coloring, so I decided to draw something between breaks — and practice another type of coloring XD If it can be called that…To be honest, I noticed that my old icon of Princess Sapphire is about two-three years old and in that time, my art has improved a LOT. So I drew another Sapphire pic to update my icon :D
I would’ve used a Legendary Beings Ara & Celi pic long ago, in case you wondered, but I liked the fact that people can recognize me/my username thanks to my Sapphire icon XD So it was a selfish, totally humble motive to draw her as well.
Her outfit’s a mix of her original Medieval-influenced one and her ‘modern’, Ravex one. I really, really love her Ravex design — it’s such a perfect redesign, especially when it fits her character within the story. Don’t ask me about the OVA itself, though. So I wanted my own take on it too, haha.
BTW, I’m not kidding when I say I improved. Just look at how I drew her before here and here.
Man, what a couple of years will do to your art! :D

Sketch from earlier while waiting on a store bench :P Breaking in a new sketchbook yesterday, although the paper stock’s a bit flimsy; the pencils had run over when I came home now, so I had to edit it slightly in Photoshop ;_;
It’s Karai from the 2012 version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I’m attached to the original 80s show, but she’s pretty cool :D Oh, and this was done from MEMORY! So besides the proportions being amazingly off, there are a lot of details wrong. (Except her eye shadow and earrings. I did those on purpose, haha.)

Above the Clouds by JadineR
Another pic for Lia Nelson, aka Tangent Flash! *_*
*sobs* My scanner kinda ruined the clouds here ;^; I tried to fix it but blegh.
Oh, well. Either way, I might add this one to the “redo digitally” pile. My original idea was for her to be flying at night but halfway through coloring this, I messed up on the light source + my worries about ruining it with darker shadows came up, so I left it as her just flying through the clouds on a break run. I also wanted to play with a bit of perspective, which I think I managed to do?
At least I got over my fear of ruining traditional backgrounds! \o/ (I usually just do it on a separate sheet and combine the two in Photoshop.) I’m proud of how it turned out but still ;_; *glares at scanner*

Heyo, peeps! Presenting for your reading pleasure: a ten-page short comic I did for a futuristic themed anthology titled 2299. Unfortunately it wasn’t accepted, and while there are some mistakes here and there (especially near the end), generally I liked how this turned out! It’s a story for which I had too many ideas, so hopefully someday I can go back to it, maybe remake it or flesh it out into some multiple stories.

It’s about two detectives investigating a robotic crime :P Simple.

This didn’t have a title originally, but ‘Ronda Onda' kept floating around in my head while I was working on it. So I named it that. This is also entirely traditionally inked, but with digital tones and digital lettering. (Balloons were inked by hand.) This comic was also originally going to be in color, but time was running out and my computer started to lag only after working in color on SAI with five layers. Must have been the water brushes 8D;; So I discarded that idea; below is the only color page, as is. (In other words, I left it unfinished.)

Any feedback’s appreciated! :D

Solaire of Astora & 9 Please ;w;

Send me a character + a number and I will draw it!

PRAISE THE SUN MAH PEEPS!

Apologies for taking almost a week+ with this one! ;_; His pose was giving me trouble (also I had paid work/computer lag problems). I think his arms look weird, but that might be sleep deprivation talking too. 8D;; I do feel proud that I recreated the sun face pretty well! :D

Again, never played the game Dark Souls but I knew about Solaire beforehand! He’s a cool dude :3 I like him.

Sif in 4? :3

Send me a character + a number and I will draw it!

Originally, I thought you meant this Sif, which is the only Sif I knew…

But then I googled Sif + Dark Souls, and WOWIE ZOWIE THAT’S A BIG WOLF why am I not surprised it’s Dark Souls XD So uhhh I hope you like it? I never played the game, so all my info comes from ze Google. ;m; I planned for a serious pic but then I kept thinking about this giant but also fluffy wolf with its owner’s sword, waiting for him after battle (before that) or playing around…but also squishing players under its weight.

So this is what you got instead of a super serious pic.

>.>;;

(Sources for pose references are here, here and here! It turned out a bit weird, but it was my first time drawing this pose x3)

Captain Marvel, palette 15!

Send me a character + a number and I will draw it!

Something tells me I’m the only one who, when Carol’s new design was revealed, kept thinking (and still thinks) ‘Somebody really loved Ryoko’s hairstyle for her Captain Marvel hairdo!’ I haven’t seen anyone with that upturned…hair..style…however you describe it, before in American comics. At least, to my knowledge!

Hence why I had her imitate Ryoko’s pose from the VHS Volume 1 cover X3

I really love her general design. <3 The color balance and all ♥ I messed up some parts though ;_____;

Zelda from Hyrule Warriors and 18

Send me a character + a number and I will draw it!

Peeps, I need to admit the truth.

I was one of those people (casual gamers or non-gamers) who for years thought the dang main character’s name was Zelda in the entire franchise — and it was only either in high school or college that my entire world shattered when I found out that Link is the main protagonist while Zelda is the princess. Phooey.

That aside, Zelda always looked pretty to me. I’ve never played the games, nor did I ever had an interest in playing them. But I do remember playing a friend’s ocarina frequently during school recess. I even got really good at it! (Then again, I was the only one who cared enough to use it; she never did…) While there’s one version of Zelda whose design’s really attractive (the brown haired one),THIS ONE REALLY MAKES ME WANT TO PLAY THE GAME. Even if it’s on a console I don’t have, or uh, care to have XD;; (So, a moot point then XD)

She still looks so cooooool! <3 Pretty happy to attempt drawing this Zelda :D I hope it’s satisfactory, considering the few references there were for her. >_<

Naked Snake + 17

This is the second idea i had for this ask; the first was a profile of Snake being all serious while I would attempt to imitate Yoji Shinkawa’s art for the series…But it didn’t work out at the sketching stage and I honestly had this scene from MGS3: Snake Eater in mind for a while. So I opted for the funny MGS pic instead. (I also make men look weird when I draw them, shhh.)

Snake, you’re disguised as a doctor! You don’t need to be posed weird here crouch like you’re still in the jungle! XD I did like this palette though. It reminds me of my father’s army uniform. (Which I guess is why it works for Snake too.)
