Arkillian's Art Thread
« on: November 17, 2010, 03:11:06 PM »
Hey guys! I'm a newbie in this forum, but I am an artist/writer/comic maker, and I have enough art to start my own thread. I'll see how much fanart of King's Quest I make to how often it gets updated.

IF you're interested in my other art, I am on Deviantart, Paperdemon, Fur Affinity, Y! gallery (Ask if you want the link- this site may close down  :( ), and a few others

Anyways, for the stuff you're more interested in. Ordered in age so my current stuff is at the top :)


Bed time stories- A commission for Writerlove. She wanted a picture of Alex and Cassima being romantic with mild nudity allowed. With this picture, I'm picking that bookworm Alexander would tell stories to Cassima- some made up (although his IRL stories are probably far more interesting) and some not. I thought it was a lovely picture in my head so I drew that. It's meant to mimic the pose in Tear Drop cause I wanted to make a happier version of it. It's a pretty sad picture that one.


The sister that cried wolf- A gift for Waltzdancing :) Rosella trying to hook Alexander up with one of her friends by getting him to play the white knight. He just wants to read his book in the sun though  :-[ Not today!



Nap time in Daventry- a commission/request from Haids of Graham havign a nap with the twins in his arms. I put an understanding Valanice in there cause it seemed like a perfect family moment before Alexander was horribly captured and enslaved for 15 years...



Rosella the gravedigger! I was sad that TSL wasn't going to have Rosella in a ball gown so I drew this in copics. Rosella doing her favourite hobby in her ball dress!



There are nails sir... NAILS! Lieutenant Shorty. Cause she's awesome :)


The Ranger- because he's cool and I missed him not being in Episode 3 D: WHO IS HE?!?


'Tear Drop'- inspired by Chopin's Prelude No15 'Raindrop, this picture is of Queen Cassima and King Alexander while he is in a coma, waiting for King Graham to return from his quest.


A TSL specific fanart- This contains nudity- just the buttocks though so it's not major.
This comic page was inspired by the scene where Graham talks to Edgar about his time with Lolotte, and Edgar talks about meeting Alexander at the beach while he was bathing. Click image for full view
<edit> Uh- the scene said he was shirtless not naked. My bad. Blame it on inner fangirl XD </edit>



A work in progress of the Royal family in TSL and the tragedy of the twins falling in a coma. Following is the sketch



The sketch of the above



A copic marker picture of Prince Alexander wearing a crown.



The fan favourite- Price Alexander and Rosella. This is a bit of an old picture now (6 years old), but I still like it :)

All comments are appreciated. Would rather not have critique on this art however. Ta :)

((And yes- I am an Alexander fangirl ;) Expect to see him feature in alot of my art  ;D ))

Wow, this is amazing work. Too bad you started following the project so recently, otherwise, you could have been a valuable concept artist, I think.

Thanks Doon :) I've been around since (One of?) the first beta of TSL, back when it was called 'Kings Quest (9)- The Silver Lining', but there were the red tape battles and production stopped. When there was no posts on the DA site, I gave up on the game and moved on thinking 'At least they weren't too far into the game'. IT was VERY buggy back then- nothing like it is now. All polished an pretty :) All you had was that scene after the wedding where Graham talks to Edgar's parents. You could go up the stairs and that was about it. I've improved alot in art since then though- I could only draw a few poses reliably. I'm alot more dynamic and consistent now, so it's probably for best. I wasn't ANY where near as good as the concept artists we have now (I'm still behind quite a bit even now >.> ), but thank you for the compliment :) I'd much rather be a supporter anyway. I've recently had my artistic ego severely bruised by a so called friend of mine, and I'm still recovering from it >.> I don't know how I'd be having my art in a game if I didn't know it was the best I could do. I'm a perfectionist ^^;

I'm very happy that TSL has continued on- there was talk of changing all the characters names and I was very down hearted about that. I'm glad it was able to continue on- the output I'm seeing is well worth the effort :)

It's cool- I didn't really join the forum till a day or so ago so I may as well be new XD I missed out on all the fun of waiting for episode 1 and 2 :-\ I've been replaying all the King's Quest games recently thoguh cause first time around I didn't get to play 1 or 2- I'm yet to play 7, but I JUST today received a legit copy of all the games (It's so hard to find in NZ now O.o ) so I'll be onto KQ7 very soon! Little upset that it doesn't have the most up to date versions of the game on it though >.> Oh well. It's not like I'm not use to the older versions anyways.

Oh- and if you're curious- This isn't my own art, but a meme on Deviantart which has King's Quest in it! It's my influence map :3

I've totally seen your art before!  I've been to DeviantArt and typed in "King's Quest" and must have found your page.  You're amazing. :)  Thanks for sharing!

You know, it always surprises me how many people ACTUALLY know my art before I meet them O.O That's fandoms though I guess. If it was Naruto or some more blitzed fandom though I guess it'd be different ^^; Not alot of people draw KQ fanart...

Yeah- I'm pretty old school XD I have all the Get Smart episodes, and imported Labyrinth 3 years before NZ got it in Zone 4 cause I loved it so much :) I'm a big espionage / fantasy fan XD

I bought my parents the entire Get Smart series on DVD. Hopefully, they'll let me borrow it sometime! :D (Of course, who knows when I would have time to watch it. :( )

Get Smart is 1970s crack. Seriously. When you start watching it, you'll MAKE time to keep going. There's only a couple of episodes that aren't top knotch. Those episodes I didn't like cause

An update of the picture. Been busy with a major drawing gathering last weekend and my brother getting appendictus. That was pretty upsetting and it all zeroed out my energy pool. Need a few early nights T.T

Anyways- some faces done




(Posted on: November 22, 2010, 07:00:19 AM)




Done some more progress. Feel free to comment if you wish :)

Is it me or is there no out of game reference art out there of TSL? O.o It's difficult to find the costumes of these guys from the wedding. I had to take screen shots from the game for most of it >.<

There used to be tons of concept art and renders on the old site, but it's all gone now. I saved almost all of it, so if you have any requests, I'd attempt to oblige.

All of it. The DA site still has some, but not these outfits, and it's old renders (omg Alexander looks SO old in one shot O.O ) can you photobucket it or something easy for you? King Graham is currently the one I need. There's little to nothing on his King outfit >.>  The rest I seem to have played make do with Oh, and Edgar.

I'll upload a big archive after Thanksgiving when I have a bit more time (almost 4AM here). These two pieces of concept art should help until then.

Arkillian--if you go to the Fan Club (where you go to DL the episodes) and check out the Sketch Art section, there's a download of sketch & concept art for Graham & one for Valanice. Those may help you out :)

Looks nice!

This is true- I forgot about it since only Graham and Valanice were the only ones there cause there wasn't references of anyone else :( Will more concept art go up? I love looking at concept art and the development stages of characters :)
