1. Episode 3 made me want to draw them again. Oh, and Mars’ disgruntled expression and Jadeite’s malicious smirk are intentional. I imagine he’s kidnapped Rei Hino (sometime after surviving the Phantom Bus incident and having seen her transform) and is forcing her to wear that dress he’s been seeing in his dreams. Little does he (or her) know that it’s her dress anyway.

  2. Just saw it… I JUST SAW IT! I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS SCENE TO BE ANIMATED FOR YEARS.

    From a short comic thing I did last year: Something Special by Anante 

    I’m betting Jadeite is alive and part of the next Princess Diamond episode. PLEASE GIVE US MORE MARS AND JADEITE. PLEASE.

    …although I’ve always wondered at Mar’s being the first to ‘murder’ a non-youma. Hmm.

     
  3. About time I made some Sailor Moon fan art, what with SMC and all. [animation added with Glitterboo]

  4. Me and outfits at different stages in my life. Elementary. High School. College. Notice the lack in height difference. Yes, I’m very short.

     
  5. Rise Like a Phoenix by Conchita Wurst representing Austria for Eurovision 2014

    Congratulations to Austria, Conchita and the songwriters!!

  6. Happy Thor’s Day again! Yup, more fan art for Sarah Schanze’s Thistil Mistil Kistil comic. I like drawing billowing capes and cloaks! But I’m stuck drawing trench coats…

    And I finally got to draw Coal! Sorry his buckteeth are so tiny.

     
  7. Uploaded my first page (prologue/Act 0 chapter cover) to get a sense of the smackjeeves site and the upload process! More prologue pages will follow!

  8. Digitally inking pages! After this step I apply solid colors onto many, many layers. I like looking at the super rough sketches and comparing them to the final lines. Man, I should have made my style nose-less like my sketches.

     
  9. I want to use Baskerville as the font for all dialogue. Is it too stylish and busy for comic pages? Especially when you’re browsing pages through the digital medium? BUT I LOVE THE IDEA OF IT. A mystery comic + a font with a mystery-related name (thanks for Sir Arthur C. Doyle) = YES, PLEASE. But testing it out…I’m not sure anymore. I’m sad.

     
  10. Working on the first page’s layout and trying to figure out the level of detail needed. Plus the dialogue and events are still a rough draft… And here’s more characters!
