A little while back, someone I knew on deviantART was having hardware problems. They were getting quite behind on requests and even their personal work, and it was coming to a complete standstill. All because a mouse on their PC wasn’t working.

 

Since my parents had come back from their store, they had a ton of computer stuff sitting around, including obsolete desktops. I took a spare PS/2 mouse lying around at the time, mailing it across the country to them. Long story short, they were extremely grateful and were able to resume work once again.

 

In return, they drew Princess Kida, together with Raine Sage and Twilight Princess Zelda. The joke is that Kida lost some sort of bet, and such she has to take on a “kawaii” persona, outfit included. They drummed up the last part but I really enjoyed it.

 

This is the first time I got thank-you art for anything I had done online, so it was quite thrilling to know I was able to help someone out! You can check out the artist here.

When I was getting my feet wet back on the deviantART community, an artist by the name of Tonks_92 drew this picture from my Space Raptor stories. I liked it a whole lot, my cousin liked it a whole lot. In fact, he had it printed out and pasted to his computer hutch for a number of years. This is still a special piece for me because it kind of captures my ambition and ideal of the story for the time.

This is a long blast from the past, when I was asking around on deviantART for people to draw my characters, this fellow did a pretty interesting take on my Jennifer OC and my main character out of the Space Raptors story.

 

Sadly the artist’s dA page is deactivated and I have no idea what happened to him, but if I recall his art style correctly, he did some pretty amazing stuff. I like to think he made it somewhere big doing illustrations.

This was my 3rd attempt at spaceship pixel art back when I was starting to feel comfortable doing digital art. I took a lot of inspiration from Starblade and Project Dragoon in its design, wanting something sleek and more airplane looking. Done in MS Paint and with a trackball mouse!
