Unfortunately the servers weren’t the most stables of late. Power outage issues led the server to go offline 3 times in the last 2 weeks.
Although kite was productive on her side project. Coincidence? Or her raise to power at draining electricity, you decide.
This saturday we managed to get a new art challenge going, it was Discord emote again. Because its fun and our discord reached rank 2. We might changes some things regarding the voice chat of those streams soon using the feature of that new rank.
Then my commissions work. one for NJack of a concept art.
Then my giveaway was also vierra Chiri as vierranv, a co raider won the giveaway and requested something that kind of mesh with the challenge.
Then for the end of october i had the last of lordpanther’s commission wrapped up. Ninja maid vaelia.
Kite’s personal art of late has been focused on her roleplay sessions of late. starting with one showing the group of the one i’m participating in with her.
For my part some big commissions of late. including two novels covers for Folclor. The one below will come out on amazon next week if i remember correctly. I tried to tone down the manga feel of my usual art and intensify the painting but hm, lets say something doesn’t quite feel right with me. Whenever i try to do realistic character in a painted style this tend to happen.
On that topic of overpainting, this is the type where i apply the least of it. But still try to make the lines stand out more than before. A series of personal challenge with Ariel and faen in kimonos.
Videogame character challenges has taken a halt as i’m struggling to keep up with work. Lately i’ve had to color the comic pages, on top of my usual workload. So, only FF14 Lyna got done before i stopped the challenges.
And the unfinished work that i will have to complete by the 31th october. The first is Vlashrod Neh summoning a spirit. 3 composition drafts as per my usual. This is always the first step of a commission.
Which…bring to mind that there is a problem with my commission pricing of late. I haven’t updated my prices since 2012 while cost of living has gone up, which , i’m not one to try to correct. I’d rather have steady work but there is a second issue; the amount of hours spent per pieces went up. What would’ve taken 4 hours now take 6. And its not because i got slower, its because i put more times to do extra steps. Compare my coloring of years ago with the coloring of now and the change is obvious. The question of what would be fair is yet to be determined… maybe just offer different pricing for different coloring styles? I can still produce black ink with cell shading fairly fast. While painting is a lenghty process.
The pages of late are very hard with large crowd and many characters involved in brawls , between that and being sick for a week i’m falling behind on my pages work. To give us a breather, we’ve done a chibi page to wrap up the weekend.
And now to the art compilation!
Four more emotes from Kite for twitch and discord.
A reaction to someone suggesting that Faen should play the tambourine. my mind was entertained by the idea of her just doing this while everyone is fighting.
pirotess from Lodoss war. Liked doing that one as i had done an artwork of her in 2012, back when i started doing daily art challenges to crawl out of a really bad slump. So bad i had forgotten how to color. Here it was:
Finally, a Yoshi one where i had to draw mario as well.
And the stream giveaways. unfortunately haven’t finished the second one yet but here is ptitbaff’s:
For my part, the challenges were the pig boy from Demon hunter, Inosuke(?) Which i redid because i really didn’t like the half chibi face i had stuffed behind at first.
For sygdom, twice! And she wants to come them so here is the first one she colored below:
Silvertea who were streaming with us also gave a shot on the spicy chicken bite. Also this picture happen to feature Chiri and Shan. Thanks silvertea.
And on the topic of gift art i received. Here’s one from Maca of Kiel. Thank yoU!
And Adira’s reaction to the recent pages. Thanks!

Worked. 2. months. on . this: Two months on one chibi illustration. I’m glad she’s done with it. Meanwhile mine are much simpler in scope. The discord […]Continue Reading →

We haven’t streamed on twitch for more than a month now. Thing is, its not just the weekday streams that had issues but saturday streams on mixer as well, internet issues and getting new guest artists is difficult. Giveaway and art challenges takes more time away from the actual worktime that would be devoted to […]Continue Reading →
Not many artworks for the last week as our sleeping schedule is madness at the moment and my art challenge of saturday turned into two complicated artworks. These 2. Chiri and Chi(kite’s), made sin eaters(ff14). A twisted angelic figure that’s all white with black spots for eyes. It was fun to draw something unusual like […]Continue Reading →
