While this concept was something I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time, I started on it just around the time @gettingoutofmyhometown was having her Instagram giveaway. If you draw something with her character for the event, your art gets a chance to be featured, along with being given 3 entries for the giveaway.
So I did a different version of this piece, putting her character in as the protagonist instead of who I was originally going to go with. Honestly I think it came out well. She was impressed with it as well, going to print out a copy to hang up!
As for the story behind the original plot? I’ll do the original version I had intended first, but I’ve been making notes and I do plan on writing about it. But it involves a prototype space-superiority fighter, an old engineer looking for young blood to fly it, and a looming threat intentionally being buried under wraps.
You’ll definitely be hearing about this story in the future.
I literally spent an all-nighter on this. O_O
First, voting results. Benthessia was the winner by one vote! Everyone else was a tie in at second. That was a shock for me, and while I process what to do with that revelation, will plug ahead as promised. Todd now has a lovely Notikan women to stand by his side and help him out in the challenges ahead.
I spent a huge amount of time on the cockpit and the homeworld panels, but I really wanted to hammer what the Notikan homeworld was like. As much as I’ve written it by myself and want to portray in Dawnstar one of these days, I had to actually come up with something to show how their world looked. I finally settled on something partially ancient and a little regal, as a herald to their ancient Latin-like roots.
But Brayleigh, Todd’s ex-wife rears her ugly head upon seeing that Todd has a new friend. Looks like he has his work cut out for him.
This was something I was doodling on my tablet this evening. I’ve just felt isolated a bit and though I have people to talk to here at ETSU, it doesn’t feel real deep and I don’t think I feel like I fit in to do something more. My mind kind of wandered to doing something impactful with a girlfriend figure by my side; I usually draw my OC Jennifer in that role, but I guess the Sheena character from Tales of Symphonia was in my head at the time. Not sure how to find that at college, but it doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen from hanging out in a Christian outreach group, that’s for sure.
