That's.....flipping crazy! They do that while you're awake?

Yeah. I assume thy're give me the neccesary drugs for me to enjoy myself not freak out over it ;)


Aww... that sucks... I must say however that this makes your artwork all the more impressive! (Not to suggest that it wasn't already.)

The idea of eye surgery weirds me out completely. :sweating:

Yeah- I've had to fight. I dont' think people really get how hard it's been for me >.> I mean, I'm not complaining cause it's what I love, but it'd be easy for me to not care and not adapt to my distortion in eye sight. It's why it upsets me when people throw their hands into the air and give up when their eye sight is so much better than mine. You find a way. I just hope the difference isn't so sevear that I have to relearn how to draw or something >.>

At least you're getting your eyes fixed, right? Best of luck, Arkillian, we're all rooting for you. :)

Anything is better than what I have now. I've always said this. Even if I still wear glasses, I'll be a happier person. I've never had perfect eye sight, so I don't know what I'm missing out on. being able to see clearly a meter in front of me even would be the coolest thing. I honestly think I'd be scared to death of the world if I didn't have glasses at all XD

Um... I've mostly been doing comic art for the last while, but here's an update of non comic art:-

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Phoenix Wright fanart for Valentines Day, may favourite couple in the series, Diego and Mia :) Diego's nick name for Mia is 'Kitten', so that's why she's in a cat outfit.

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):
Picture isn't NSFW, but is a little risque due to context. This is called 'Chains of Fate', and it's a picture about the guy in the middle, Bryan, and how the chains of fate bind him to chose between love and lust.

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Tales of Turnabout. the Double fold cover of the collected version of my comic that better be all handed to me by the end of the month :/

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

The cover to the solo print of my comic for Tales of Turnabout. ToT didn't make it's print deadline so I did a short run of just my comic.

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

An exchange picture of my friend's character Jarrick Moroney in Victorian Dandy gear :)

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Green Lantern's Light- Head shot. This is current- I'm working on his suit at the moment, this is a birthday gift for myself though. It's the Green Lantern Kyle Rayner, a long time favourite DC character of mine :) My interpretation of him anyways. This picture is a modern remake of one of my old pictures of him

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

This version was done in paint. The new version will be done in coloured pencil :) So, hopefully 8 years of improvement should be noticeable XD Now I've gotten rid of the DBZ in my art and all ;)

*********************************************************

New Stuff- I swear!



Um- So I've been disappeared for a long time. I'm still around- I try to check up but life kinda got a bit messy for me >.> Like, my Mother got celulitus, then straight after that got diagnosed with breast cancer. In the mean tim I'm recovering from fatigue from IBS and did ran tables for 3 conventions one after, then all broke loose for Christmas around mid January. Right now, one of my best friends is living with me and I'm looking for a flat with her... an apartment or something? Donno what Americans call it. We've been looking at alot of 2 / 3 bedroom apartments and it's all rubbish T.T It's been really good having the company to keep my sanity, but for now, it sucks up all my free time :(

There is positive news though- I found that I was protein deficient in October, and started upping my protein intake, and I feel like a million dollars now :D I'm finally full of energy and my strength is returning :) I'm actualy starting to surpass my friends in stamina and strength again which is heading back to where I was before this mess ^^ I'm so happy!

Anyways, I have been trying to draw when I can- it hasn't been King's Quest art- I've move pretty much fully only my old fan love, Green Lantern after finding a group of people that were fans of my favourite character who I thought no one liked but me- Kyle Rayner  :sweetheart: I'm by no means over King's Quest though! I just havent' had time for so many interests!

In case people want to see my arts, I'll post theme here so you can see them:-

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Green Lantern's Light (complete)- Here's the final version of the picture below. Wow- it WAS a while since I posted here last! This was my birthday gift for myself- my favourite Green Lantern, Kyle, in coloured pencil. This took me AGES to draw but every bit worth it :D

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Chasing Starlight- This picture was to practise digital colouring as up till then, I had only digitally coloured while I couldn't colour. Now I'm ok with colour, I thought I'd give it another go :D This one is of Kyle with all of his girlfriends he's had over the years. It's said that he has the kiss of death as they all end up dying- I think the reboot DC did recently has erased that... along with most of his exes. This picture is a memorial of pre-reboot Kyle  :'(

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

"With this Kiss"- DC blew me away with Hal Jordan's story line where we find out that Hal was going to finally propose to his girlfriend Carol Ferris. This is a 'What if' picture, to what if he proposed sooner and things went differently for him

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

The fate of Hal Jordan- This was an exchange picture from a fanfic, where Cowgirl, one of Hal's ex girlfriends gets his Green Lantern ring when he dies. I wanted to try an exploding type picture for this. IT was a real challenge!

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

The power of Love WIP1- The final sketch of a picture I'm working on now with Kyle and my favourite of his girlfriends, Jenny, flying around in sort of a heart shape. Not sure how I'll finish it yet. All I know is they look like they're having fun ^^

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

My Hearts a Stereo- Inspired by the Gym Class Heroes song "Stereo Heart", and the TV tropes take on the Green Lanterns saying that they were the four temperaments, I started a series of pictures called "My Hearts a Stereo", where I theme each GL on their temperament, and a band / song released the year that they were created. Kyle's one is Meloncholy, and Smashing Pumpkins "Meloncholy and the infinite sadness". Kyle is an artist, so I had him painting while listening to music :) (Sorry, this one is artsy so it's hard to explain)

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Blizzard warning- One of two picture here that ISN'T Green Lantern XD This one is a Christmas gift for my friend Dana, who wanted Finland and Sweden from Hetalia in Viking costume. I have only a poor scan of it though which I'm sad about. She has the original in Kentucky though :D She loves it ^^

Spoiler (mouse over to reveal):

Christmas card 2012- My Christmas card design for 2012! I decided to draw 5 of my favourite local birds for this year's card. It's done in copic, and pencil :) Everyone loved the design :D The birds are as follows:- Kea (with the cane), Tui (Blue), Kiwi (with the stubby wings <3), New Zealand Fantail, Kakapo (Famous for this video), and the Pukeko (Red beak)


******************************

I hope you all enjoyed my art! I hope to return with my TSL fanart soon. It's been a while since Alexander graced my sketch pad  :-\ Hopefully I'll be able to get some fanart out when I've moved into my new flat soon!

Happy new year everyone!

Me too. It's been tough, but mostly cause of the protein thing. I have also been busy even if it's only mentally though ^^; I've been trying to keep up but even right now, I'll likely only keep up with the Creativity thread. I'm slipping in Cognition when I can :) My computer is dying a slow death but I'm getting through it slowly :)

Thank you :) I actually have ALOT of fanart, but it's all deap in my thread ^^; My TSL art can all be found on my Deviantart account though or atleast my current art. I think I've taken down some of the older stuff.

Yay! Welcome back, Arkillian!

Thank you! I wasn't really totally gone... just lurking. I shouldn't do that. It's sad when people lurk and don't talk >.< I just wasn't doing much art let alone TSL stuff :(

Glad to hear that you're doing better! If you don't mind my asking, was the protein deficiency just due to inadequate protein in your diet, or do you have a condition that causes you to require extra protein?

How's your vision? Did you ever get that eye surgery?

Lack of protein. I was only getting it from one serving of chicken a day. With an egg a day also I'm fine.

No- the eye surgery wont be till 2015 or so. I have to save up 10K for that, which isn't going to be any time soon ^^; I do look forward to that though :)

Sorry- I've been a bit MIA around here due to reasons >.> I'm trying to get myself back into things again, but stuff has been... urgh. I haven't even been drawing much lately T.T

I'm not sure which Green Lantern one you meant, but thank you :) The BDSM one... the one with the looping chains and stuff? I guess it does have kind of a bondage theme going on, but that's also sort of how he feels emotionally cause he's emotionally bonded to both girls, but his heart wants one, and another side of him wants the other. It's sorta metaphoric or whatever TuT

Do people still want to see my art here? I dont' have anything King's Quest, but I do have other stuff. Not much, but some art. I'll link it here if people want to see it :)

Oh- yes! That one was a birthday gift I made for myself almost exactly a year ago now XD I really loved how it turned out, and to see how I had improved over time too :) Thank you TuT

Absolutely we want your art!

Thank you :) I'm never sure on themed sites like this if peopel are still interested >.> I was on an Ace Attorney one and no one seemed to care there. I guess I assumed it'd be the same on other sites? ^^;

Um- for the record, this is not a compliment to me or any artist. I'm not sure why people think that saying that my art is better than theirs is a compliment, when it's such a self limiting thing to say, and all it does for me is make me feel sad and awkward.

Please- don't say that to an artist, no matter how complimentary or accurate you think you may be :( I have very strong views about artistic ego and artists. IF you want artistic help and are passionate enough to want to get better, then I'm happy to help, but I don't want compliments to be at the sake of your artistic pride, even if you don't count yourself as a serious artist.

***************************************

Um... Art though... Well, I've been on a big Green Lantern kick lately if it's not obvious. I go through phases I guess? So most of this is Green Lantern related- most of it being specifically Kyle Rayner related (cause he's the GL I follow the most)



I felt like making a chibi of all the current Earth Green Lanterns in celebration of the new Green Lantern, Simon Baz that got introduced about 6 months ago now. We don't know a lot about Simon yet but that he has a tattoo on his arm that is arabic for 'courage' (he is Arab American), he's stolen a few cars, and was framed for terrorism. Hopefully they clear his name now that the latest story arc is over :)

Role call:-
Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, Hal Jordan, John Stewart, Simon Baz.

***********************************************************



A more realistic version of him. I was a bit upset that my first fanart of him was a chibi of all things so drew this. Based off an image of Arab model Mrad Mouawad.

***********************************************************



Balance:- I made this picture because I thought it was really cool that Kyle Rayner was trying to learn how to become a white lantern (a lantern of life, or all the emotions), and Hal Jordan was going to become a black lantern (A lantern of death), and I thought it was like a Yin yang, that the two would stick around for a while and be all balancing and stuff- thus the yin yang flow line of the picture :) Sadly, this wasn't the case, and although Kyle kept the white, Hal only had black for Green Lantern #20 (just come out), and the two of them didn't team up for a Yin yang anything for it T.T *sighs* I is disappoint.

The original of this had silver paint on it incidentally, which I had to photoshop to make it an even colour since it scans badly ^^; Just in case it looked a little weird to people. Silver scans with a lot of flash back :(

*******************************************************


My Angel of light:- A few months back, they stated that Kyle becoming Ion 2 and Parallax (long story- Read sinestro Corps war for it) was still a thing that happen after the DC wide reboot, so I thought I'd do a picture of Parallax playing the Phantom of the Opera with Ion, but the image was a little weird with two guys so I turned Ion into a girl. A lot of people are mistaking Ion for Donna Troy, but I guess that can't be helped when his outfit is so similar . Not sure if still work in progress?

********************************************************



Emotional Turmoil:- This picture was inspired by the spider web that Volthoom (the just defeated bad guy in Green Lantern) uses to warp reality for each of the Green Lanterns. This picture went through a lot of incarnations, but I settled on this one in the end cause I didn't want the picture to be dangerous or sexual in any way- I just liked the visual effect the web gave. Apparently he looks like he's at a disco XD I blame his white lantern outfit- it reminds me of something someone would take clubbing XD

********************************************************



A Space Odyssey:- A parody of Jamiroquai's album cover inspired by a scene in New Guardians where Kyle is trying to learn how to control love, and he has this funky crystal helmet on his head (that comes back in #20! <3) and was instantly reminded of the cover ^^ IT's a bit silly, but it was fun :)

*********************************************************



The eye of the storm sketch:- some non Green Lantern art! This is my OC, Bryan on top of a gargoyle looking over his country with big wind formed dragon wings. I called it this cause I feel like he's watching out for an army to approach before he attacks from above :)

*******************************************************



Sam Flynn WIP:- Sam Flynn from Tron Legacy. A work in progress from this reference. It'll look more like it should as it gets more background colour etc... It's hard to tell how it'll look with a bright white background ^^;

**********************************************************

I have others, but it's pretty much all sketch art, or lineart stuff so I didn't link it here. I hope this is interesting for people and not too confusing ^^; I don't know how many Green Lantern fans are out there. I tried to post stuff that is relevant to non fans also ^^;

Also- decided to stop using spoiler tags cause they're a pain. IF you want me to reapply them I can.

Those are amazing! Oo, neat to see an OC from you too :)

And noted re: how to compliment artists. And in that case, I'll say I love your work because you really capture not just such realistic detail, but also a lot of other styles, and there's a lot of emotion in your work. From the realistic images to even the cartoony lineup of Green Lanterns there. It's quite amazing!

Urgh- I've had hideous amounts for art funk over the last year- it's been shameful T.T I'm trying to get out of it! I managed this last night :)



Sorry I haven't been around. I was flat hunting last year, moved into my first flat in July, then had back to back conventions, comics, Christmas, then I get screwed up having the wrong food at a wedding and am only just recovering from it. It's been very hard cause I've had a lot of anxieties to get through. I'm hoping to turn that around though! Oh- I also haven't been drawing cause I got a new computer in January and I'm still reinstalling programs and transferring files! It's been crazy! MY tablet hasn't worked the whole time. I'm hoping that the lastest driver update that I did today fixes my tablet. It seems Windows 7 isn't so happy at my old school Wacom 2 tablet T.T

Anyways, I called this picture "Avenging Alexander" cause he looks like he's gonna go after someone with that wand in his hand and turn them into a cat  :smitten: Looking forward to the new part when it comes out. I hope it's soon! I'm going to replay the whole game soon on my new computer and re-remember everything TuT I do miss TSL so much :3 I'm looking forward to skipping through the dream realm doing cool stuff ^^

And sorry for necro-posting ^^; I assume in this thread's case it's OK?

Slowly adding to the picture  :deal:

Got a little worn out by the time I got to this stage of the picture so it's still work in progress, but I kinda like the colour scheme :) I need to work on it a lot more than this to get the lighting right but I think it has the over all feel to it :3


 

anything
