Globus papilioger by JadineR
Look! New art! Finished art! Holy socks! XD
This here is an entry for ogawaburukku's FaLLEN Art Contest :D FaLLEN has always been one of my favorite stories, and well, I always participated in her contests since some years back. I just love the character and designs a lot, and the story is such a great one, gosh. I think with this one, I’ll have drawn almost everyone in the main cast XDDD
My main point of visual reference/inspiration for this was those fairy tales ink drawings you’d see from the 1920s and a bit of Charles Vess. >.>;; I love how…fragile? yet impressive they always looked, so I wanted to see if I could achieve that here with Arma (the one in the orb) and the little Munchkin (the white haired girl).
Almost said her real name, oops. The title’s a play on ‘globus cruciger’, which I honestly realized was a thing just now when I was trying to give it a title XD (Apologies for possible Latin butchering beforehand; it’s been a while.)
I wanted to experiment a bit with inking SFX here too. I used cotton balls and napkins for the orb and the ‘smoggy’ effect, while the butterflies are done with a simple white gel pen ‘w’ The rest was done with dip pens and other technical pens. I actually bought new dip pens and only inked the Munchkin with them. They were still too new for me to continue inking with them. ;_;
The contest’s about to end, but y’all should consider giving Brooke’s comic a look-see <3 Here are also my previous entries for her past contests: [x] // [x] // [x]
Ara & Celi Update!
Happy 50th page! :D Well, that’s according to my stats on ComicDish and that’s counting the covers too.
…well, I effectively always know how to look at the positive there, don’t I? 8D To be honest though, it feels like I’ve drawn more pages than that. Maybe it’s all those drafts I’ve done XD
Anyway, I really like how the page turned out. It’s been a while since I’ve used German, so the compound word there might be wonky. That’s not the reason as to why I’ve not included an instant translation as I tend to do.
And — le gasp! TWO updates in a month! :D
As always, thanks for reading!
Presenting my minicomic FRAGMENTED, starring the (fictitious) metal-punk band Delilah and The Warchicks! I’m pretty proud of the result and I really hope you guys enjoy reading it :D
What’s the story about: A girl coping with life. The band singing about the mental strain of society’s expectations. An attempt to experiment with portraying lyrics in visual form. Or, as I dubbed it hilariously, a “video comic”. ;P
You can start reading it here.
Ara and Celi Babies — New Year 2013 by =JadineR
I was supposed to have finished and put this up on New Year’s but my eyes needed a total break after pulling an extreme all-nighter on editing the minicomic x_x (3 pgs left…) So now it goes up.
These are characters from my webcomic, Legendary Beings Ara & Celi. I had this idea about 2 months ago: Ara (center), Celi (right) and Miyara (left) as babies >3> And it was going to be the first thing I drew this year. Therein lies the joke. A very bad joke, possibly. 8D Well, I pencilled it on the first, at least XD
Hope so far the year has been treating you all well. All *counts* 3 days of it.
WAIT it’s only been 3 days?! Why does it feel like more?! *sense of time severely whacked*
Anyway, hope you enjoy the cuteness ^^
Halloween 2012 by =JadineR
Happy Halloween! Have a widdle Tanare and her mama Dahlia enjoying the night :D
I really like how this turned out. I forgot everything else I was going to say because doing this picture took so much out of me. x_x;;
Characters yet to appear sob are from my webcomic.
WIP from another page of Ara & Celi…but where? /spoiler
The sketch is actually about a year old (I think). It’s now I’m inking it :P
Transformation! by =JadineR
Now that the Anime Iowa Art Show results for winners has been announced, I can finally post this. This was done back in April, and it’s a piece I did for the Art Show this year. I didn’t go to the con, so it was nice being able to still participate in some way :)
U N I V E R S E by =JadineR
Sometimes I like to look over my old art and think about how I’ve improved or not. Of course, it always ends up in “where did the me that did this go?!” XD Case in point this pic: I like to think I’ve improved vastly since I did this and yet this is one of the old pics I love the most :)
