I love the headdress of the last one and her hair is beautiful :3 The first one is very lovely as well, especially their faces as Faerydae said. And the second one's got awesome clothes :D

Am still considering if I really want to post it, because it's kind of embarrassing. Some time ago my sister uploaded a comic she and I made way back in 1997. We used to collaborate a lot, because she is a passionate writer and I always loved to draw and we both like Elfquest (she introduced me to it). So she wrote and I drew. In this case I guess the writing is much better than the art... and it's sadly only in German. Anyway, it is the last part of a trilogy about a tribe of plane-dwelling elves. This one is actually the earliest time line wise. My sister and I were talking about the trial of head, hand and heart and decided to make our own version of it. So in this case the tribe is searching for their new leader by using a similar challenge.

Even when I finished it back in 97 I found that I had used way too many browns... It really hasn't got a lot of contrast and I'd rather not start on anatomy, perspective and things like that... But there are things that I like. The flow of the panels isn't bad methinks and also just expression and emotion-wise there are some things that I can still look at and be satisfied. And I was able to draw at a small scale at that time! When did start to loose that skill I wonder? And even more amazing: I actually got a comic done! My drawing was much more efficient. So future plan: learn to draw smaller, be more efficient.

Thank you for sharing! You did a great job on crowds and mood and emotions in your comic for sure! You could also really see the thought in the lighting. I loved how detailed the curly hair was and her lips as well - lots of emotion there! It's so satisfying to see finished products :D

*mega blush* Gosh... thanks so much! Thanks for taking the time to read. In a way I guess a part of my embarrassed self was hoping people might ignore the tiny link. Yeah, but it's good to put out there just to show that I did comics once and I actually managed to finish things.  :D

That is very flattering! Yeah, mermaids are good to me. Try it out! They are fun to draw. No gravity, no legs!

The last one of the vampire stash reminds me a lot of how I view Akasha, the vampire queen from the vampire chronicles. (Actually the only vampire series I halfway cared about. Book one was blah, second was good, third awesome, never finished the fourth...)

Anyway, I love the way you handle colors. It is so alive and pretty. :D

I can't read German, despite having worked in Munich for a short period in 2009. I do recognize some words, and others are so close that I can understand it. I think I get the main message. I do agree that there is perhaps a little too much brown certain places, but I think it is alright. The creatures they're domesticating are really colorful and pretty.

Looking forward to seeing the finished calendar pics! :D

This comment has made my day (which was horrible so far)! Thank you! Thanks for taking the time to look at the comic. Yeah, those "Peekhooves" were quite a neat design, I think. Some color finally! I guess I did watch too many Tim Burton movies back then, though...
So, you worked in Munich? Wow! As I am from Northern Germany I don't know Munich very well, but from the few times I have been there at least I gather it is very beautiful and expensive. I hoped you enjoyed your time there.

Aw, I'm sorry your day was bad. Can I cheer you up with Chandeen's version of In Power We Entrust the Love Advocated?Chandeen - In Power We Entrust the Love Advocated] [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVrvpdkF17c#]Chandeen - In Power We Entrust the Love Advocated[/url] Of course, as good at it is, it cannot beat the original Brendan Perry - In Power We Entrust The Love Advocated (from Dead Can Dance"The Hidden Treasures").

I found them rather easy to understand. Most of the people at least. One thing which I appreciated was how people tried to speak English. I've been other places where they speak okay English, but don't dare to use it. Which actually happened in Berlin when I was sixteen and very lost...

 :lol Okay then, I'll have the comic up soon.

I have to say I absolutely adore this picture. :love The hues of blue give it such a sense of quietness and calmness.
And I just dig the trees!

Woot! I never saw that comment! Thank you! That is one of the few pictures I still like as much as when I first drew it. But I must say that the style of those trees is really taken directly from the Last Unicorn. Not my concept, sadly.

Here is another picture that I just re-discovered and still quite like. My made-up comic character Yuuki ( ::))



That bow so doesn't work. But I was aware of that when I drew it. I just wanted it to look cool. :D

I was going to say that I liked that you used the name for snow, with something completely opposite, when I saw the double u. Courage, isn't that what it means?

Anyway, I love how the image screams in rage.

Exactly!

And thanks to you both! Making her name "yuki" would have been way too original for me, I guess. Also, at the time me and my sister invented that
character, anime and stuff wasn't as popular as nowadays, so at that time there was a slight hint of originality to it.

Haha, I am also not so sure about that, either... something was-once-lava-ish-thingy...?

Cod, I just checked the translations, yuuki is one of those words which changes meaning if you use different tones. It didn't say which syllable or tone which said that or this, but it can either mean evoke, courage or organic.  :lol

It's my tragedy that my language learning ability is so painfully slow. I want to learn them all.

Posting this drawing from 2000, also posted this in the Scroll of Colors, but I still like it!
The story that goes with it: when I was staying in Japan, there was a challenge to draw a monster based on song titles of my favorite Japanese band. You also had to make up a story describing the monster's personality/skills.

So, here is what I came up with. The name is "Devil Lies and Truth". This monster is tiny in reality and inhabits people's ears. There it influences people's emotions by whispering either the truth or a lie about whatever in their ear. It feeds on the emotional turmoil it creates.
Guess which head tells the truth and which tells the lies. :D

I so want a plushie of thatone. :D

Hmm...I think the beastly green one is the one who tells the truth and the brown cute one tells lies.
The Brown makes me think of child's toy, and that would make it incredibly disturbing if it's telling gruesome lies. Beyond jarring!
Of course, that's just how my mind sees it.
Going the normal route, the brown one is the truth teller and green one is the liar.
