Thank you Charcoal, your feedback it means a lot to me! :)
I have been working nightshifts so I was a bit out of touch with the forum. Will be posting a new one soon.

Thanks for the nice present, Xantros.
You have outdone yourself with the statue! It really looks so old and weathered.
I look forward to your upcoming work. You keep getting better all the time.

P.s. I also like the fire in the braziers a lot. Very magic-y looking!

Something silly I whipped up on a whim.

Hey there turtles! smiling_turtle_head
After being sick (again! wary_turtle_head ) and low energy I have finally completed my next chapter cover for:

The Burdens of an Apprentice

Poor Abigail, she looks as tired as I felt, probably some of that came through in my art.
I got the hang of backgrounds now, making a stained glass window was a challenge, and putting a slanted shine on it even more so. Experimenting is fun and tough. But overall I am very pleased with how this one turned out and had fun making it. smiling_turtle

Here is the cover image for Chapter V of my story.

A Reckless Quest

I used everything I had learned so far and experimented a fair bit too. Because of that it took me a long time but it is finished now. And I learned even more! smiling_turtle I really like how the backgrounds been turning out lately, love drawing them and my style for Abigail has become consistent. But I have also learned that I do not like Hedera plants and I will think 3 times before I draw one... so hard! crying_turtle

Anyways, I hope you turtles like it! Stay Slow! satisfied_turtle

Edit: Open the image in a new tab, then you can zoom in if you want to see the details. I am very proud of the hair texture. satisfied_turtle

Space Cadet Abigail, ready to blast some Splorggs to bits with her trusty Zapper! insidious_turtle

A little something I whipped up in a week. Always wanted to do some retro sci-fi drawings.
Then I remembered Spaceman Spiff, from Calvin and Hobbes and I had to do a spoof.
Hope you all enjoy this as much I as do! satisfied_turtle

That one looks really good. I don't know why but it gives me heavy Commander Keen vibes.

Thank you! I didn't know much about that but now that I see it, you are right. I had Spaceman Spiff in mind but this works too :D

This is a little something I made for my friend's birthday.
It comes once a year so, might as well make it special. satisfied_turtle

And wouldn't you know it, my birthday comes tomorrow. happy_turtle_head

If you ever feel bored or think that your life is dull, know that it can be much worse. turtle_tongue

This was too silly not to make! hehe

Summertime Splash Part 2

It is so cold and foggy here, I had to travel to a tropical island to finish this one.
A bit late but at least it is done. happy_turtle
Learned a lot between this and the first part. Got my character design to be better also.

"I love the blue sky, to lose myself in its deepness dreaming,
Gazing, as clouds drift lazily up above.
I love the sunshine; its light fills me with life,
While a slight breeze caresses my cheeks.
Yet in my mind, there is but one rigid thought.
Winter, where have you gone?"

Well, at least Abigail gave it a try. Doesn't work so well without snow. wary_turtle

We have not seen much snow lately, only sunshine and blue skies, so I thought to capture that here. satisfied_turtle_head

Duh, somehow I not happened to see this topic for way too long.
I really liked your Aku'mai painting and the amazing Spacewoman Abigail! :)

I am glad you took the time to reply, I get very little feedback here.
Happy to hear you enjoyed my drawings. Yeah Aku'mai was really tough, especially the Statue of Azshara. By comparison, the Space Cadet one only took 6 hours, like 5 times less. :D

Here is a little drawing for my "Artwork in Progress" Comic Strip Series. I use these on other websites to indicate that I am working on something bigger. They are quick to make and fun too. happy_turtle

This one is called Lunch Break. I left the work area in "capable" hands... I thought. I have no idea how he even got up there! scared_turtle

This is a very special birthday comic I whipped up for a very creative person.
Gambargin draws historically accurate arms and armor and battle scenes.
Here is a link to the Facebook page if anyone is interested: https://www.facebook.com/gambargin

Context for the joke: Gambargin doesn't like to draw plate armor. happy_turtle

I've been sick for about 2 weeks, so I thought, why not make a comic out of it.
Going to my local doctor is pretty much like how you see it here. I try to avoid it if I can. maintenance_turtle
Anyways, I'm getting better now. Hope you all enjoy this. satisfied_turtle

I had a light dream and saw this image. So I blinged it up and here we are.
These 'Succubae' tempt you with anything nowadays. I'm a sucker for Neon Lights. scared_turtle

Thank you! I have even improved more but since I don't get much feedback here, I decided to not post the non-wow drawings here. If you want to see them, you can check out my facebook page here:
