Drowkaki was finally upgraded to Poteto 5.1 then to Wax Poteto. A much needed upgrade after so many years without change and with all these bugs plaguing us. We had to trash our custom MODS but it seem that wax poteto include some of the stuff we had. Avatar(go in your profile) and picture uploading. It also come with some new features as well. The most important one is to be able to re-touch everything, including SHI-PAINTER pictures , non animated oekaki and uploaded stuff. I'm sorry we didn't do this upgrade sooner. Now the board is pretty much lifeless, but i hope now that approving new accountsl became optional, that some life will return around here on this fantasy-only oekaki board.

My neighbour's dog, Honeybun, with little angel wings to make her fantastic.
He's not a bright person, and so Honey is highly neglected. See her little hind foot sticking out? Her leg's broken from being hit by a car, and she never received medical attention =(
I'm also the one who's been her main food supply for over a year and nobody knows that but me, so shh.
I'm going to get her from him. She will be mine. She will be loved.
All a matter of time, patience, and cunning on my behalf. gotta make it seem like his idea.
But she will. And it needs to happen before it's too late...

Kage Kitsune @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 12:05 PM
awww she's so cute!!! I hope you get her from the mean mean neighbor! She looks so sweet and nice ::huggles her::

Kari Maxwell @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 1:13 PM
Aww it's a cute doggeh! I like how she looks real, yet like a cartoon at the same time. Cute little wings too. ^_^

Wow, that is really cute and ssssooooooo GOOD! Wow, it is amazingly life like. Awesome!

Ashi @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 10:17 PM
Wow, KHatch! The fur around the muzzle looks very soft and the perspective is very good with the wings. Poor puppy! I hope it all falls through for both of you. Nice oekaki! :)

darkrose @ Wednesday, January 26th 2005, 1:54 AM
Wow, that's a really sad story. I hope you get the dog... I wish you great success. Meanwhile your depiction of angel dog is very cute, and I loves it muchly. His eyes in particular are fantastically done, and the little cocked head with the little cocked wings makes for a wonderful effect.

catboi incubus mishi @ Wednesday, January 26th 2005, 2:48 AM
Aww, how sweet! I hope you get the doggie, I know you could give her a good home. ^__^ <33333

Tigerhawk @ Thursday, January 27th 2005, 5:15 PM
You did hunnybun's face really well. Looks semi realistic. I love the green sort of looks like green fog and the colors of green reminds me those in Chrono Cross. I love that game. Good Job Good job.

Crest @ Friday, January 28th 2005, 10:25 PM
Cute puppy. I like how you drew the wings. And the expression on the doggie's face is so cute. Poor thing, hope you get him.

kyokurrychan @ Saturday, January 29th 2005, 8:08 AM
AH that is the CUTEST lil puppy i've seen. drawn uber well too. ^^ hehe.. kawaii desu ne.. <3

Jennifer @ Sunday, January 30th 2005, 12:18 PM
Poor sweet little Honeybun. I hope you will be able to persuade your neighbor to give her to you. It's heartbreaking that people could just neglect their pets.
Honeybun looks so very cute. I love her soft brown eyes and that open mouthed expression of anticipation that dogs get when they see something they like or want. She is so very cute.

christabel @ Sunday, January 30th 2005, 9:55 PM
._. Man. what a crappy owner poor li'l Honeybun has now. I hope you end up with her!

Very nice drawing, missus. I love the colours you used-- especially on zer face.

Ichumi @ Monday, January 31st 2005, 4:33 AM
Ahhh, such beautiful eyes!
The wings suit the dog perfectly, the purple looks great against the green and tan.

Tigerhawk @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 5:44 AM

The title has nothing to do with the picture. Just something that makes me laugh and remember my \"younger days\"...Bite me...is also irrelevant.

Here, read a poem while you wait. It\'s for \"The Verge\" at my school. Literary mag thingy.

When the Rain cries,
and the River bleeds,
Call to me,
the Stigmata of Dreams.

I found stigmata in a dictionary. I like it. And when looking at everyone else\'s art, KHatch uses it too. So I didn\'t snitch it off of her. Stig-MATA...matamatamata
so here is the finished product! Wasn't what I intended but still good. I used thick lines instead of my usual scribbly ones. Yes, this is the same guy I drew before with the feathers and stuff. If you notice the tips of his hair isn't gold. I don't think I'll make them gold anymore for drawing and writting (describing) purposes. Any comments, questions, things you can't stuff in your head?

darkrose @ Sunday, January 30th 2005, 4:57 AM
Nifty. I so love your character design... the mood of the picture is very awesome and the magicy effect is fantastic. I like these thick lines too, it looks very clean and nice. The whole thing just rocks :D

christabel @ Sunday, January 30th 2005, 9:58 PM
This = pretty darned cool! I'm totally lovin' that pose-- and the detailing you put into the clothing fold makes it SUPER!

He reminds me of Link silghtly. X3

Kwetha @ Wednesday, February 2nd 2005, 9:25 PM
SO nifty. I love the colour lineart, it's so innnovative when you add the light source. Talking of the light source, it's really...lighty. The shading on the skin is just WOW. SO SHINEY. *ends random comment*

Well I'm sorry to say this, but you didn't compose this image in animation, so it will not be able to be retouched later on? Pity too because I actually like the overall look so far ? the only thing I can recommend though is to save a copy of it and remove it from the board and start anew? Nice start though, just have to keep in mind if you don?t think you will be able to finish an image at one sitting it?s best to be safe and use Animation OekakiBBS or Animation PaintBBS.

ChronosKit @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 4:33 AM
awww...I thought I clicked animation...I feel bad now, I was too tired to realize it earlier, that and my head was-a pounding. Ill save and redraw later though.

darkrose @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 8:35 PM
Alright, that was a lot of work for not much, I know. Her face is too fat, and it's bugging me, and he looks like a little kid. I think his eyes are too low, and her nose is too big, and the lace needed to be finer on her glove so I lost all the pretty details I'd put on there and sacrificed it to the scribble gods. Ah, well... I still love the background, and the dress design, and the little glowy bits underneath the gems that make them look like they're not just pasted onto the dress like a Matell mass-marketed thing. Yes, well, um... this is JT and Cora, the lesbian, that loves him, a guy. No, it doesn't make any sense. From a gaming session... enjoy.

Shakaku @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 8:52 PM
Defiantley unique. All the things you critiqued yourself on are correct. Might I suggest making the guy look slightly bigger than her? It might help. Over all though the concept and the color use is wonderful.

Ashi @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 9:32 PM
You're right, DR. The background is just awesome. It even has a motion type quality that makes the couple centered and shows the flurry of activity all around them. Her dress is just awesome and the shine on the gems is excellent.

Crest @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 11:43 PM
I like their semi-matching outfits and the gems that stand out. The background is pretty wicked looking...especially since I can't draw them. XD The shape of the girl's hair is pretty cool looking, too. Neat design of hte drawing.

Tigerhawk @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 5:18 AM
What baffels me the most is...why does everyone have to look so danged perfect? I swear everyone thinks that eveyone needs to look like Barbie or Ken..@_# they're fine. i like them that way. Hey have you ever seen those people with that lumpish looking thing on their nose? Or some African-Americans (some prefered being called Black) have skulls that stick out a bit. It gives them character. Who said we all had to be "perfect"? Look at Gollom, everone I know seems to think he's deathly cute. Everything on us gives us character.

Not all males are big. I know some high school guys that are only 4' 5" if not shorter. Many males I've seen are sninny, those "estro flackas" (bad spanish) The only thing that makes him look weirdish looking, is his right (his right leg not the right side) leg. It comes to close to his left leg and doesn't look like it'll give him support/balance. It could also be his face is just a tad to small.

The Hair is Beautiful! I love your hair. How you draw it is exquisit, as well as your jewels. Yes the lace is a bit to...lacy, but I didn't notice till you pointed that out. The background is good, really good. If you'd blur it it might have given it more motion to the picture.

I love you (not in that "way") so please don't get "GYAH I'M GOIN TO KILL YOU AND HUNT YOU DOWN!!"

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 5:48 AM
The colouring on her dress is just wonderful! I love the hair too, so shiny!
I do see some colour bleeding around the skin though. That's my only beef.
Wonderful background that adds but not detracts.

Starisan @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 2:46 PM
I really like how the fabric drapes on both characters. You did a lovely job on the stones and I reeally really like the background. The look comfortable with each other. wow, I can't get over how much I love the background effect. wonderful.

Kaede @ Thursday, January 27th 2005, 4:25 AM
Wow the clothes are absolutely beautiful, I love the detail in the dress, and then the sleeve of the man's clothes. The hair is absolutely beautiful. Your coloring is amazing. The backround is also very nice. ^^ This is really awesome.

christabel @ Sunday, January 30th 2005, 10:03 PM


Holy. o.o This impresses the heck outta me. X3 I love the folds and the colours and the POSES an' the anatomy and... Man, you did such a fabuluos job! ^^

Chime @ Monday, January 31st 2005, 1:55 PM

Well, the colorign is pretty good, aside from the slight leaks. The hair especially is well done. Anatomy is good, And nice color choices ^^
But! The faces are odd. her face is bigger than his, and the nose looks lopsided, which makes the rest look lopsided. HIS face, just needs the mouth moved a bit, and it would be cool ^^

Nice background :)

Queen_Godzilla @ Friday, March 4th 2005, 10:29 PM
Cora looks like an Amazon woman compared to JT.

It's because she's bigger, body wise and face wise. It's probably just an accident on your part, really. Plus the fact that they're the exact same height. In real life, they're probably of different heights. It's always something to consider when you're doing a composition.

I do agree about his face. It IS probably too round, like you said (I think.) Guys have a more square jaw (usually) and are more... angular. Haha, maybe she likes him so much because he looks like such a girl. Bad joke. I know. XD;;

I think maybe her torso is a TISH too big for her body. Maybe. The dress probably threw you off.

Speaking of the dress -- definitely nice clothing design. For outfits that dark, I would have thought they'd have had darker shadows on them, though.

And it's nice that you merely IMPLIED the background instead of really going all out.

Was drawing this last night and lost the pic when I was sending it...at least I screencapped it. XD

It's suppose to be me as a catboy. So...nothing really special about it other than I spent a really long time drawing it freehand instead of using the bezie tool like I normally do. Otherwise I wouldn't care if I lost it or not. :P

Ashi @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 9:33 PM
Cool, cat-boi! I like his eyes and the tones you used.. also that awesome braid in his hair and that bell collar is just too cute. :3

darkrose @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 11:23 PM
beautiful shading... I always like it when people use tones. It almost looks like it's printed on denim or embroidered on a patch. It is so smooth lineart, fantastic job with that. And yes, the jewelry and collar are incredibly cute <{^ ^}>

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 5:50 AM
It looks like it could be mass produced and used as a sticker or something.
The lineart is so perfect and the eyes so WATERY LIQUID goodness.
I love the collar =)

Kari Maxwell @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 1:17 PM
Kitty! -hugs it- I like this. The way you coloured it is awesome. The texture looks neat. Cutie kitty. ^_^

Ren-Tsuna @ Wednesday, January 26th 2005, 4:37 PM
x) I adore the way you colored this. It seems far to simple for some people to appreciate, but the way you gave it that magazine print look is wonderful. ANd the design in the background also has that simple look to it, yet its in reality so wonderfully complex.

Now about the picture. To put simply, I love catbois. ^_~ I had originally made my persona a catperson too. The varying width of your lineart was a great idea too, it really compliments your drawing style. To put simply, this is a very beautiful picture and I hope to see more of your stuff on the board!

Kaede @ Thursday, January 27th 2005, 5:00 AM

I love the toning, it's all so clean!

The coloring style is very interesting. Almost as if this were a weaving on a carpet or sumfink. ^^
The face is adorable. Really nice work Crest ^^


Queen_Godzilla @ Friday, March 4th 2005, 9:36 PM
It is a good thing that you screencapped it. Seriously.

I didn't know you were a guy! You were so good at drawing curved things (instead of, like, swords and cars) that I thought you were a girl! Sorry!

But wow, you've actually grown a braid that's down to your chest? o_O Damn.

You have very clean lines, and good sense for proportions. I like how you did that comic-like tone with the diagonal lines. It really adds character! And it makes you look sooooooo pretty :D

That is an awesome looking drawing. Her face is so beautiful to look at and I really love how the hair looks. The clothing/cloak has folds that make the picture stand out so much. And the colors are a great choice. Very pretty. =3

my god, LE stunning-osity. The cloak, and hte shading on the face is just WOW. There does seem to be a bit of colour bleeding htough, where it turns from the red lining to the greeney-purpley rest of it, and it does detract a bit from it being so otherwise awesome.

Although I love the vampireness... their hair is amazing but your eyes always get to me - they're so luminous and attractive I can't help but get sucked in. Lovely detail on the flowers in her hair, too. This is so pretty!

darkrose @ Sunday, January 23rd 2005, 11:40 PM
very angsty... I like it a lot. I really like the black on the wings, they're just shaded perfectly. The red outline with the bits of blue calls to mind some kind of dark, bloody fire, excellent color choice there. Good job.

Ashi @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 3:08 AM
I love how you outlined the entire image in red. It really comes through for the concept you are trying to evoke from the illustration.

Oh god it reminds me of Salad Fingers too...that's just not a memory I want to have! *shiver* Yet something about those makes me watch each one as it comes out...
The colour is just lovely, so dark and yet not. The blues give me an electric feeling. I love the wings!

The wings are the best, I think. Nicely colored. The rest of the picture is simple, yet foreboding.

Are you okay? Or is this just a ..... normal...picture...???

Nice...If scary...


Shakaku @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 8:57 PM

darkrose @ Sunday, January 23rd 2005, 11:44 PM
heh, cute. Beautiful job texturing things, their hair is very shiny and cool and the clothing looks totally spiffy. His hand gripping the bag looks a little off, but their expressions take so much focus towards themselves that the hand is barely noticeable at all. I really like the background, although I think there's a little too much space on the left side, it almost looks unbalanced. You can pretty easily fix that by just taking it in any graphics program (I use ms paint) and just cropping it down a little. Then again, that heart is so well done and so adorable that you might not want to sacrifice it. Still, wonderful job. Keep it up!

Ashi @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 3:08 AM

I cant recall the girls name from your comment, but I love the coloring on her outfit. The thing I keep coming back to on this picture is her sweet, Arent I cute? expression. Its so kawaii~~~~

Aris shirt is nicely done, his expression also. The background, though plain, is a nice touch.

Nice piece ^^


Shakaku @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 9:00 PM
Those expressions are prieceless, and they are both adorable. The textures on the clothing is awesome and the hair looks nice too. Not sure if you were trying to have his hand be up close and them in the middle ground of the picture or if it's suppose to be int he same middle ground as him but, I think the hand if it's suppose to be int he middle ground with the characters, it should be made smaller, it makes the picture look slightly heavy right there.

This is Nera, the alien woman who is the cook on the vessel of the notorious Captain Pierrot, the swave, dashing, cyborg pirate. She's one of my favorite characters I've created for a RP - she's from a pirate RP Windy and I are doing. Nera is awesome, she's a no-nonsense, sexy gypsy alien. She treats her captain with little to no respect, but loves Dai and does whatever he asks. It's so cute. <3333

wow! this is great. Soooo mischevios, she loves knives. Great character and colors. I think think the consistancy in costume is great and the color of her skin complements her dress verry much. The heart is so perfect great job!

Kage Kitsune @ Sunday, January 23rd 2005, 11:00 PM
hehe!! This is cute! I like the green theme to this and the black and gold stand out nicely in it ^_^ Her nose bugs me, it doesn't look right somehow.

Hehe! Cute and interesting alien character you have there! ^w^

She looks so lovable, yet, the detail of her liking pointy objects makes her so scary at the same time! XD

Oh! And I love all the shades of green you used in the coloring. ^w^

Cool Character; with the fact that her hair is long; and black ^_^
Her happy face...with a knife in hand makes this picture funny in a good way.

Ashi @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 3:10 AM
Eeeek! She's just too cute, Catboi! You really got her expression and pose to convey what type of personality she has. I love her hair and the coloring as well.. and that outfit! A+!

darkrose @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 4:04 AM
wow... what a concept for a character! And she's GREEN! *squee* Lovely work. I'm not sure what she plans on doing with that butcher knife though... hmm... <{<.<}>

Chime @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 2:28 PM
Greeeeeeeen.... .... . . . .. ... .. . . ....

Ahem. Like everyone else, the hair is fabulous ^o^ In my opinion, it looks especially good with that outfit. Is it like, a classical pirate-wench thingummy? Lol.....

Beautiful coloring on her and her clothing. I love that knife's coloring especially. And, gasp!, its the return of the ribbon-stremer background >3

~Kitti-chan <----- also likes pointy objects.

Shakaku @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 9:03 PM
Aw, she looks like a very loveable character, and yet still mischievious (sorry bad spelling), the use of almost all green tones is awesome .

Crest @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 11:45 PM
Neat clothing design and love how her hair is shaped. The color choices are nicely chosen with the golden areas standing out well. I like her expression and the texture on the skirt. Neat. :D

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 5:57 AM
The delicate and subtle shading is nice. I love her shiny knife and her plain black hair. The absence of highlights in it is neat.
She has such a cute expression =D

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 23rd 2005, 5:27 PM
Very well done. I can definately feel the emotion, as it's eminating off the page. The expression is excellent, and the hair looks really soft, too.

I hope you feel better soon.

Crest @ Sunday, January 23rd 2005, 9:19 PM
Neat looking pose. Really adore the hair and the shape/design of the face. Like the sheen on the shoulders and the hair. The shading is done well on the face. Pretty cool looking.

Starisan @ Sunday, January 23rd 2005, 10:51 PM
Ohm, art is never crappy. I believe that it is a good way to let things ou and that it does reflect life a lot. I am always glad that others are willing to share their art and if you are feeling bad that is how you're feeling, don't deny yourself. I hope you feel better. This portrait definately gets a feeling of sad lonelyness across. Take care!

Ashi @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 3:11 AM
This is neat! You can definitely tell this character has some inner turmoil going on inside. I like how you did the hands and the weeks are very cool. :)

darkrose @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 4:05 AM
Ooh, nice hands. Great exhasperated expression, too. I hope you feel better soon, although this is really fantasic work.

Chime @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 2:24 PM
Though its somewhat against my beliefs to comment on the picture when youre going through hard times, I cant help myself ;____;

I love the facr O_O The coloring on it, its great!
The hands too, like everyone says, are so detailed, and the shrt-coloring is awesome. Seriously, this is a great piece. The wings though slightly messy, arent so bad. If they were a bit more like feathery, Itd be awesome-er. Lol

I really hope youre goping to be okay ;___; Its so depressing to have a member go through a bad time.

Take care.

Tigerhawk @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 5:30 AM
Ah, I know how exactly how s/he feels.

The line art I see came out very clean (something I'll never be able to achieve). i do believe that the lines for the hair came out very nicely. i do agree, the wings do look like a last minute job but they give me a feel of childness from this character. I'd love to explain, but I doubt people like reading what I write (I go on and on). Maybe laters. But I would like to point out that some children have a sense of insecurity and that's what those wings give me a feeling of. insecurity.
The coloring is da bomb my friend. It's just too cool. the seperation of words for "alone" is a great way to use....what do you call those thingies........I'll get back to you on that.

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 5:59 AM
The angle on the face is really nice. I have problems pulling that one off.

Alright, my Valentine's Day card to my friend. Hoping she'll be my Valentine this year. :3

My character Cray which I've drawn here before and her character Meino. Both are in a RPG together and it looks like the two are going to be hooking up.

Not a fan of pink, but it's the color of the holiday that suits the drawing. Red just didn't really look good. Blah at the pink.

Wow this is so soft *_* You can do so much with just one color xD That's just awesome. I'd suggest to make it a tad darker though...it's really straining my eyes to look at everything xD Maybe it's my computer though.
Beautiful picture, great pose and everything ^^

Very beautiful tones. I agree with missjtsang though, it does strain your eyes a little. But both characters have very nice designs and I love the little speech bubbles with the "<3" and "!". =3 I hope she'll be your Valentine too!

Ashi @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 3:12 AM
I love the tones in this, first off. The girl doesn't really seem to be coherent about what she's in for, but the lineart of both characters is superb.. plus the fact that it's all done in red for V-Day!

Chime @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 2:21 PM

The toneowrk. Thats the main part of this whole thing. Ive always liked one-color tone-art, but this is awesome. Usuallly people use black - this is original, and fabulous. I think my favorite part is his hair - its so shii~iiny......

Great work, keep it up!!!1


Shakaku @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 9:05 PM
People who can use tones, and use them throughout the entire picture make me envious. There for I am envious of you. I mean a mono color scheme and tones.... Wonderfully done. I clap my hands... *claps*

Tigerhawk @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 5:26 AM
My, my, my, I love the use of toning in this picture. The girl looks so very cute in this picture. makes me want to draw a cute valentine picture but alas...i can't...i hate Val. Day. *mumbles to self* the only thing that really stands out is the highlighting from their outfits. it may or may not have come out better with the toning. but what do I know? ^^

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 6:03 AM

catboi incubus mishi @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 3:50 PM
I agree with Chinh, the eyes are too far apart. The face seems to have a slightly odd shape to it, but other than that, I think this is very well done. Have fun on your vacation!

Starisan @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 6:09 PM
Have a great time on vacation. I think the hair highlights are excellent and the details on the eyes turned out very well. Don't give up on realism, you really have good style. The whole palatte is very soft and feminine, nice. Good highlights too. :)

darkrose @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 8:13 PM
Ooh, nice skin tones. Beautiful feathered edge on the hair, lovely eyes. Things could be tweaked a tad to be in the right places, but this is really REALLY good. Everything's all there and it looks sound, you just need to work on feature placement and proportion and you'll be set for life.

missjtsang @ Sunday, January 23rd 2005, 3:00 AM

Ignore the timer, i ate dinner and did other stuff after i finished the lineart XP. The anatomy looks so off in this picture. Is it just me or is her head to big for her body? Eh whatever XP.
P.S. yeah definitely my first time ever drawing wings, so they look like crud

ChronosKit @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 3:01 AM
Her head fits perfectly, it just looks to me like her neck is a little too big. I love the wings, and the proportions dont seem to be that much off. Good job ^.^

darkrose @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 4:49 AM
I love the wings too, and her eyes are beautiful. OK, yeah, I can see now that her head is a tad too big for how you've got the rest of the body, although I think if you had scooted her neck up a bit more under her chin and made her breasts a little bigger (larger chest) then this would be perfect. Other than that you've got beautiful colors and lovely shading and the playing of color on the frames is very whimsical, I like it muchly. Overall you did a really good job.

Tigerhawk @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 6:14 AM
Hey she reminds me of Quistis (spelling?) from FF VIII. Her eyes came out great. Really great. As everyone else has mentioned, so did her wings, detail is very wonderful. Love the colors.

catboi incubus mishi @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 3:47 PM
Her head seems only slightly too big, and I think it may be because of the big, well, bump of hair on the back of her head. She's a very pretty fairy nonetheless. :) I really like the eye makeup, it's something you often see in fantasy art. x) She reminds me of a friend of mine, but as a fairy. Great job!

Crest @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 8:47 PM

Chime @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 2:16 PM
Something about that ear bothers me. ... .. . .. . .

Anyways. This would look so much better if the coloring was slightly neater. I see many places where it bleeds through the lineart. The lineart itself? Its great, simple, not so choppy, more-or-less neat. The skin-tones are fabulous.

I suggest, for the gem (that is a gem, right?) on her forehead, you add a bit of shine to make it stand out. The earring too. Otherwise, the picture is awesome, and nice eyes ^^


KHatch @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 6:08 AM

Fabulous. I admit, its messy. However, The glowy-hand makes up for it, not to mention her expression. If you had just blended the skin-tones, and colored her a little neater - perhaps even add a bit more detail to the flowers around her hand - This would be sooooo much better.

Argpoodle is rehabilitating, and it seems that 'Rena hs better things to do than babysitting an injured gnome.

I know! I know! The owl is his familiar, right? Anyway, this is the most beautiful of your comics thus far. The background is just perfect, simply beautiful. I went back and read your description of what was going on, but even before that you could really tell. Wonderful job on expressing the story just through their expressions and poses. In that first pannel she's got her shoulders down and is sitting on her leg, which shows her boredom, yet her back is straight showing the formality of the 'job' (the I'm-here-beacuse-I-have-to-be look). She looks so ver longing in that second frame, you can tell exactly what she's thinking! Oh, so wonderfully told, so wonderfully shown. Another absolutely fantastic job!

*___* wah...poor boy...I think i'll have to take a peek on your comics KHatch, looks interesting ^___^ , beautiful artwork indeed

Crest @ Sunday, January 23rd 2005, 9:23 PM
Poor little guy. Where's his hat? That might make him feel a little better. Your comics are always amusing. :D This one is a little sad though. Both seem to have a lot on their mind that they're not wanting to talk about. Very nicely drawn out and colored.

Shakaku @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 9:11 PM
Even though compression might have killed some of the lovelyness of it, it still looks great. And the 3rd pannel is my favorite. The movement and the sceenery are just perfect. I feel so bad of Poodle!

Queen_Godzilla @ Friday, March 4th 2005, 8:34 PM
Lai'Rena and Argie. So cute.

This is well done, despite the compression (if you think THIS is bad, see my Castlevania picture.) It's really nice that you managed to squeeze in backgrounds and pay attention to the lighting.

And even without words, the story is well told.

I really like Argie in the last panel -- he's just got this cute pouty face and just looks handsome X3.

Malena @ Thursday, March 10th 2005, 8:54 PM
Aha! You're the one i did that fan art for a long time ago. I couldn't remember where some pictures I did came from. But they are your characters!!!!! YAY. HI

For some reason, that expression makes me laugh >D
I like the simplicity of it; My favorite part id the tail xD Nice design though,

darkrose @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 8:58 PM
cute! Wow, that's really awesome, looks almost like something Neopets but it's not which ROCKS! I love creating new cute critters... the shading is beautiful, and I love how the background is plain black, it blends so well with the template on this site that I'm used to, so cool. Beautiful job getting the lighting, too, this is just overall nothing short of wonderful.

KHatch @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 10:30 PM
Ooo Aishas are the best! I need to do something with mine, she's still just blue.
I like the expression and the little glowy antennae.

"Ahhhh...nothing better than a nice long bed-vacation after Goblin hunting...."

>D Alright. Ive been totally obsessed with Final Fantasy XI. Hahahah. The appearance of the character is based upon the Mithra. For those of you who dont play, I pity you.

What I Like: In general, the coloring pleases me. And although the linework isn't my best, Im satisfied.

What i dont Like: I went over-board with the shirt-wrinkling >D Hahah. And I got a "background-block" so I just painted a bunch of clouds on the wall ^^

And no, the "boobie" was not intentional, its just the position. If you look REALLY hard, you can see the upper curve of the other "boobie"

For those of you who dont know already, this is Fae. (Eternal_Fae)
And If you DO play, My character is Kitsuchi on the Asura server.

Awww, this is soo sweet. She looks so calm and at ease. The fabric strains on the pillow are done really well.

darkrose @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 9:02 PM
This is really quite good, especially her arm, I think. The shading on that and the shape are quite pleasing. She appears to only have one breast through, something there looks not quite right. Is this done or not? It looks like it's done, but the comment at the beginning seems to suggest otherwise. Either way, it's a good start and there are definitely things I like.

KHatch @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 10:33 PM
The shading is very nice and rich in this piece, but the BG is sad and empty. I love her arm behind her head, and yeah, she does appear to have only one boob. Intentional or undone? Nice anyway.

Kaede @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 12:56 AM
I like the coloring it is awesome, nad her face is so cute. Her ears are adorable too. I just want to pinch her cheeks

Harlequin @ Wednesday, January 19th 2005, 6:48 AM
Verna, I think Starisan meant comments are fine to improve on things now, while it's still a work in progress. Since it's FAR easier to fix things in the initial stages. lol

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 19th 2005, 7:12 AM
This is my favorite of yours! The eyes are very well detailed. You have excelent tear duct things and the ridges over the eyes and ....its so pretty! The nose is also done quite well for a mouse. (KUDOS) THough it seems like the nose should be shifted to *my* left. Just a little. I suggest using the copy button. IT works wonders. the mouth may also have to shift a little so that it corasponds. And that mouth. XD I love it! The skin tones are almost done it looks like. (unless you are going for a more extreme color variation in the shading and highlights) And the bg. Its simple but when this pic is finnished i think it will complement nicely to your figure. I love the use of cool tones. Though with this FREEZING weather my love may change. LOL. Also on the head and back part of the head you did a nice correction. Now all you have to do is clean up those lines and make him/ her PRETTY. What color have you chosen for the eye color? FINNSIH SOON!

NOW FOR A BRIEF COMMENT TO THE OTHER DROWTALES MEMBERS! Starisan is my friend from college and i invited her to the drowtales board 'cause of the friendly atmosphere. PLEASE do not make me regret it. Before the worm we were all trying to have everyone comment more and be helpful. Which means actual critiquing. Not stating the obvious.

Kari Maxwell @ Wednesday, January 19th 2005, 6:21 PM
It looks nice so far. I have to agree about the nose though. It should be shifted a little by the way you have the shadows. It looks reallt nice though.

Starisan @ Wednesday, January 19th 2005, 8:50 PM
Thanks for the comments so far. You're right it's not done yet but I just wanted to try something new. I appreciate all the comments and critiques because I am always looking to improve. Thanks so much Crou for being helpful and for suggesting I join this board. I understand that there are certain expectations and I am truly trying to do my best to follow them especially since I made some mistakes at the beginning. I understand that sometimes my work can be sloppy and it is something that I am trying to improve on. I must say that I am happy to be able to see so many different concepts and styles of art because I love art and if there something that I love as much as doing it, it is looking at other peoples. Thanks so much Crou and I hope to finish this soon. And thanks to everyone else who has left me comments.

celestial crou @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 6:17 AM
Starisan- hello again *HUGS* your doing GREAT for a beginner. Everyone messes up the first few times. But the amount of comments lacking on pictures...makes me sad. Expecially sence you have commented on everyones. Giving them valuable input. It annoys me that they dont show that same consideration to you. This is what squee ment. This pic DESERVES many comments. Its looking beutiful.

darkrose @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 8:52 PM
Wow, great start! I love the eyes, and the nose is VERY well done, although it appears to be tilted a little too far, as in the angle isn't quite right. He's looking more towards the camera than that. Other than that, the proportions so far are AMAZING, truly beautiful. His head is just the right shape and size, the eyebrows are more like real eyebrows, thick and slightly differently shaped, his ears are the right place on his head and the angles match on both sides. His neck is just beautiful, keep going! This is going to be totally great!

Kaiera @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 10:13 PM
ow wow! realistic-ish looking...wonderful. I think my favorite part so far is the nose ^_^ not sure why, but I love realistic-looking noses. Of course the eyes and lips look wonderful too :D I hope you finish it soon!

KHatch @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 10:37 PM
This will be very nice if you finish it. The skin is well shaded so far, but you need a lot of highlighing still. Unless you're going for a gentle light setting, then well it's pretty good like it is, just a few more shadows here and there.
I'm liking the green eyebrows. Can't wait to see this done!

Starisan @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 6:04 PM
I am sorry this is taking soo long to finish, it will be soon!

Chime @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 2:06 PM
Even though its not finished, Im gonna comment.

The anatomy itself is wunner-ful ^^ Especially the eyes - theyre so realistic. I love the shading thats on the neck and shoulder.

But Im always drawn to that background. Perhaps its because the finer details of the Elf havent been added on. Its so....cerulean >3 I have no wordds to describe it.....

PLEASE finish ;_;


Starisan @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 5:00 PM
sigh...getting further, still not done cause the skins looking a lik\ttle dirty and ears and other things unfinished. Needed to add more though, this is so much fun.

Starisan @ Tuesday, January 25th 2005, 2:43 PM
okay, I think I'm done...but if you see anything that needs fixing let me know! Otherwise I'm pretty happy with this experiment and I'm gonna start a new one yeah! This is soo much fun! Thank you everyone who gave me comments and suggestions!

Queen_Godzilla @ Friday, March 4th 2005, 8:17 PM
Hm. The facial structure is pretty well done. The eyes are the only thing slightly off kilter (just one, really, and that's only if you really, really look.)

And now we get to the real issue at hand, the one that is the biggest impedance to the picture: the highlights and shadows.

Everything has highlights and shadows. It's a fundamental lesson in illustration. How they are applied makes or breaks a picture.

In your picture, the most I see is shadows. Her skin, even in faint light, should have a highlight, because if there's enough light to cause shadow there is enough light to cause a highlight. And considering how I can see your shadows, but none of your highlights (save the extra sheen on the elf's eyes and lips) you probably need to work on this.

Let's also discuss the shadow placement. The light seems to be coming from the left. At least, it seems so. Either that or the top left. Placement of a light source is equally important, you know. Having light and shadow just randomly everywhere isn't exactly the way things are done. So... just pick a light source someday. It makes things better, trust me. Takes a while to get used to, but it does look awesome when it's done.

I'd want to address your smudging, but I won't. It's really hard to blend stuff in OekakiBBS.

Hoorah for being new here. I'm hoping that I saved the image the right way. She's my charicature of sorts, name of Kayen, and she is *completely* out of character herself. Normally, she'd be holding a staff/scythe combo and be in tribal wear. Not snowboarding gear. That's *my* forte.

Adult 'cause I'm not done.

Any ideas for clothes and background are entirely welcome, 'cause I suck at both.

Tigerhawk @ Wednesday, January 19th 2005, 5:40 AM
For clothing I'd give her one of those fur collared jackets and thick pants (how vage can I get?). Background I'd go for a snowy mountain on fire.....and people running all over the place.....I really don't know... I do...I....have issues on saying I don't....ya. Hope that helps a bit ^^;;;

Ah, but does Argpoodle feel more for the drow than he lets on?
Find out next week on Guiding Light!
No not really. But this IS what apears to be happening in the game...she's becoming mroe independent, and he's becoming more...sad...
Who knows.

Thanks toten for uploading this :)

I drew this a few days ago actully, but just now had toten upload it. It was supposed to be a female looking dragon, but some of the features remined me of a horse.

also please i ask dont point out the front leg that is bent. Ive had enough people at SA and on AIM tell me its bent wrong, looks odd or out of place. its leg are not based on a horse, i want to make that clear.

(Edited on January 18, 2005, 6:01 am)

darkrose @ Tuesday, January 18th 2005, 6:13 AM
OK, so no comments on the leg thing. Still, this is a BEAUTIFUL image. The colors are so soft and vibrant, the details so perfectly in place. The dragon-horse-thing looks perfectly at home in this environment, very calm and peaceful and so free. Lovely work, freakymary! Welcome back!

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 18th 2005, 8:51 AM
I love this a lot! So pretty and smooth.
While I can see the horse and the dragon in this beast, I also see human. The way the front legs are done is, to me, reminescent of the thighs of a humanoid. That's what I see. It didn't bother me at all, I think it's great!
I really like the serene face and the flowing gorgeous hair. More arts, freakymary! I loves your stuff.

Errisandra @ Tuesday, January 18th 2005, 4:38 PM

Oh. My. God. Mary! This is beautiful! Your creatures are so cute. I want one! ^_^ I love your background also, very nice. The front arms of your creature are different, but, I like it. Pretty. ^_^ And no, I didn't mean different of "ONG! It's bent wrong!" I actually meant I like it because it is different. It makes it more interesting.

Wow, there is a lot of detail here. Wonderful. The hair is great and so it the anatomy (very accurate). I have mentioned this before but I really like the blur background effect because it really gives the feeling of depth. Very pretty and very magical.

Kage Kitsune @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 1:26 AM
This is awesome! I love the dragon/unicorn's face the most, the eye is wonderful and the hair aww the hair ::pets it:: the background is kind of vage and fits in with the mist and everything ^_^

Chime @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 3:34 PM
Ahh, another one of Mary's creations. As always, the style is wonderful. The water seems a bit strange, like a wave is about to loom over the "dragon" . The reast of the backgground, however, is wonderful - your trademark taxture-use is lovely ^^
The shading on the body is great, but the hair draws the attention away. It looks slightly out-of-place here, but still, Wonderful work ^^


Kaede @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 1:00 AM
You are so amazing Mary. This is awesome. I love your color choices, and then your coloring itself is amazing. The horse-dragons eye is just beautiful. I really love that backround too, the water is awesome! =D

This is so very beautiful. I love how she stands out from the background. Her eye and facial features remind me of the Last Unicorn. She has such beauty and grace. I am in love with your background.

Shakaku @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 9:17 PM
Beautiful setting and beautiful creature! Smooth and gentle shading. It's awesome. I know you said that people keep sayimng the front -leg- is wrong, but I also realize that yeah, it's suppose to be that way. I think whay confuses peple is the fact the way the paw curls under. not really the leg itself. Also the front legs have slightly thicker shading which draws your eyes to them. The anotomy is very well done and the over all look is excellent

Queen_Godzilla @ Tuesday, March 1st 2005, 9:16 PM
Hey Mary.

First of all -- the background is quite lovely. I believe your usage of textured brushes for the landscape was excellent. It really brings out the textures present in nature of such objects. Hoorah!

The dragon is really lovely too. Unique design for something, having two sets of backlegs.

As for the legs -- I think it's not the arms per se that throw it off -- I think it's the shoulders and the way the arms stand with it. I honestly don't know how to move that shoulder, but I think that's the problem; that's where I'm getting that artist vibe.
