Test page 2 by iesnoth
Test page 2
Getting closer, but I'm going to split up this page to give the narrative more room to breathe, and make the poses more fluid and easier to read.

Kaleidoscope by iesnoth
Kaleidoscope
A request by :iconxxkathrinxx: of the characters from this piece. I had SOOO MUCH FUUUUN with this. I love these characters. Dem CHEEKBONES man. Dat JAWLINE.

So, I'm making some big changes to my life soon, and that includes big changes in my online "life" and my life as an artist.
For the past year I've been working full time at a day care, but in a couple weeks I am officially moving from full to part time, with my free time devoted to art and missions work.
The long term goal is to be able to quit my day job and support myself solely on art/writing.

How it will affect my art:
*I am going to reopen commissions. They will now be more important to my living, and probably be done quicker.
*I'm also interested in taking on art students for a weekly fee. I had planned on only doing this locally, but if someone is interested in Skype lessons or getting critique, I'd love to be of help. However, this will require a lot of learning on my part. I have not been trained in teaching, but I believe in more open curriculums, with feedback from the student while still instilling an appreciation for fundamentals (something I didn't realize until too late). The price for lessons would be $20 a week. For critiques of art work or writing, it depends on how much art and how long the story is.
*I'm starting a webcomic. This is still a few weeks away, because I want to build a stockpile of pages before posting, but expect a lot of developmental sketches.
*I'm strongly considering getting a patreon. Patrons will get more exclusive content, such as wallpapers, WIPs, abandoned stories and subplots, and even some livestreams if I can figure it out. I have to do some research.
*I'm going to be on the lookout for professional freelancing jobs.
^ Because of this,^ getting "seen" online is going to be very important. So if you like my art, and want to support me/see more of my process or general craziness, please follow me on my tumblr and twitter and new instagram. I'm still trying to figure out the latter, but a lot of WIP stuff will be posted there.

None of this is effective immediately (except maybe the last thing). I'll keep you guys updated on my progress. Thanks so much for your continued support, and I hope you'll be joining me on this new adventure.

:lol3d: Lol 3D 50x50 derp  
This thing took me 16. friggin. hours.
But I really like it? I want to do the whole comic this way? ??????
I really like the queen's design here, at least. And the backgrounds.
STARS MAKE EVERYTHING BETTER.

Things I'll probably change: the MC's design is a bit off.
Make the characters a bit simpler to allow for more expression.
Maybe change some of the other designs to make the Stellanatans more distinctive. I haven't explored their parameters as much as I could.

I'm a 22 year old with 2 degrees I don't know what to do with.
I like film and Internet critics, coffee, Indian food, and a good conversation.
I'm a Christian and an anarchist. Those two things coexist better than you think.
I'm saving up to go to California and break into the big bad world of animation, but I still haven't found my schtick. Hopefully it hits me over the head sometime soon. :)

You are honestly so amazing! I have been following you for several years (on different accounts) and I can honestly say you have inspired me more than any other artist I have come into contact with! I'm 15 years old, and I have been drawing since I could hold a pencil. I would be honored if you could take a look at my art, and give me some feedback! Much love Heart - Jin

Thanks so much! It's always good to hear that I have positively impacted a fellow artist.
I've looked through your gallery, and for 15 years old, you're doing great! Definitely better than I was at your age.
As far as things you could improve, the only specific flaw I noticed was that the lighting was inconsistent in some pieces. For example, in the Juliet piece you highlighted directly over the shadow on her breast, which makes her look flat-chested. There are also highlights on the lateral sides of her thighs and on her nose, inferring that there are multiple light sources shining on her from all directions, but then the shadows contradict this assumption. Here's a cool tutorial on light sources and shadow. It's actually a really interesting subject.
I'd also encourage you to research movement and fluidity when it comes to poses, and to draw more action (it doesn't have to be a fight scene, just characters interacting or something).
Also, draw from life. I don't do that as much as I should, but if you're looking to improve, that's the sure-fire way to do it. I hope this helps, and wish you much success. :)

Thank you, that is quite a compliment Love 
I hope to someday be a character designer, so that advice on lighting and poses will help me greatly!
This feedback means so much to me, and I wish you success as well!:happybounce:

So I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for posting Afowl fan art, it is really hard to find good fan art, much less remaining fans of the series. It gives me a nostalgic feel to see it all and I love your story (or what I have read so far!) so again thanks so much!

If you ever update your story please let me know! Fan fictions and role plays written by literate people are even more rare, if not stuffed to the brim with Mary sue's. I'm gushing sorry! >.<

No, it's fine. I must say I don't plan on continuing this story, but that doesn't mean fanfiction is out of the question.
