It’s been a long time since I did a color image of Amber, mostly all the work with her has been in the comic pages. I admit that I kinda lost a bit of an urge to draw her because of all the work on the comic and I’m gonna admit that I made a mistake with the way I structured her story.
While I’m very happy by the positive response of Amber operating from a wheelchair, I feel I honestly have too many scenes in the comic of her confined to a wheelchair. The real fun of drawing a mermaid is having them swim in the ocean and playing with the flow of the body and motion. Simply drawing a mermaid being confined to a wheelchair as well as having to draw all the details of the wheelchair is not all the fun, especially when it goes on for twenty plus pages. So this drawing here is kinda the result of pent up aggression of not being able to draw a mermaid being free in the ocean for so long, and it really feels great to break free.
A repost of the latest fan art of Kohaku from Dr. Stone. I did this after reviving a criticism about the size of my faces and size of heads, I really noticed it on the old art I did of this character. So I decided to do another piece of the character to make amends.
Just a repost if this lovely image of Tai and Twilight Sparkle as mer-lovers. I had done an older version of this for Met-May nearly two years ago and thought the original was gorgeous with its body language, but largely outdated on my skill set, so I wanted to re-draw it with my more enhanced skills in late 2019.
Just a few sketches from the sketchbook, these are some random sketches of Kalwa and Zack. I believe the Kalwa drawing was done shortly after the change in style of the eyes, it was also to practice some gestures with her. This was also done when she would have three bangs on the left side of her head, a style that has since been abandoned. Now days she’s drawn with two bangs on each side of her head regardless of which side you see.
Zack was drawn shortly before his major role in chapter 14 of the comic, mostly practicing his facial expressions. This sketch was actually the debut of his current hairstyle which was actually based off the hair of my character Tai Bantly (often drawn with Twilight Sparkle). Initially Zack simply had spiky hair that went straight up, but it was changed to a more hedge look for chapter 14 and has remained that way since. Sometimes when drawing him it gets hard to get the length of the hairs consistent.
An old character I first drew way back in 2017, I decided to revisit her again in attempt to fill my portfolio with more original characters and new illustrations. This time I gave her a bit more of a defined look with some new abs, and a couple of new limbs. I didn’t illustrate in the last drawing, but her limbs actually collapse to reveal her weapons, also as an added note, she can interchange different weapons on her limbs.
