XDDD PINKIE PIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIE at first I didn't care for her at all, but that episode where she thought no one wanted to be her friend or come to her parties and her hair went flat really endeared her to me. For not even cute reasons. 8( For deep reasons. Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash are my favorites, because they're they ponies I would want to be? XD But Pinkie Pie feels more like me. T_T Can't fly, can't do magic. Came from a family that with a disposition similar to rock farming. Now I've lived all over the place, had all kinds of different friends, some are long lasting friends and others are sad betrayals. Whenever I'm with a group of friends, I always feel afraid of being dropped because I'm tremendously unremarkable and completely expendable. Pinkie Pie even had imaginary friends to have a tea party with. Lacking real friends, I had imaginary friends when I was younger too. XD I guess I kind of still have imaginary friends, the ones I draw comics about, but they aren't really my friends, they're more like my internal versions of Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash, the ponies I'd like to be.
What if, instead of Celestia ruling over day and Luna over night, there were four Alicorns who controlled the seasons? Well, this would happen *points to picture*
Vernia the spring Alicorn wears attire made out of stones that have been overgrown with vines to represent how in springtime plants and animals come to life over the dead earth. Her coat is the color of new grass and buds, while her mane is decorated with springtime blossoms. Her cutie mark is a stone shaped heart with vines creeping over it.
Agni is the summer alicorn. His crown & other accessories are made out of gold-lined metal plates were forged by a blazing fire and adorned by two gleaming rubies. His coat is a burnt color, representing what the fierce summer sun can do, and he has a mane of roaring flames. His cutie mark is a fiery sun.
Autumnia is the fall alicorn, with a coat of pale auburn and a light blonde mane that constantly shifts and blows like wind. Her attire is made up of leaves turned orange and red, accompanied by acorns that become ripe in the fall. Her wings are large and powerful, perfect for blowing leaves off of trees to make room for winter. Her cutie mark is a cluster of leaves being scattered by the breeze.
Glacia is the winter Alicorn. She is aloof and cold, with a coat in the same color of freshly fallen snow. Her mane is a cool blue and is swirling with snowflakes. Her attire is made out of sharp, crystalline ice structures that never melt, yet still feel cold to the touch. Her cutie mark is a large snowflake along with several smaller ones, all surrounded by cool north winds
The building is based on a school house, because the children of Athena are very smart, and crafty. The design is simple yet decent, there's a carved owl above the door. And beside the cabin is the armory, it looks like a metallic toolshed as what Piper described.
Edit: The Girlfriends are out! Please see below! So I have read all the Percy Jackson books ( love them!!) and I finished The Lost Hero and was inspired. I don't really see a lot of art for series, so I decided to put in my 2 cents.
These is set in the The Heroes of Olympus series, so Percy should be 16&1/2-ish and Jason is 15 or 16ish (He doesn't even know...). Anyway Percy is older!
Please comment on the Character designs! Percy, I had a lot of time to think of a design. (like 6 books worth of time)
Jason went through 3 haircuts! At first he had long Cali hair, then halfway through inking I remembered he had a chop/crop cut...grr. So I gave him a buzz cut, and it was hilarious! I found out I don't do good buzz cuts. Somehow I made it work. Anyway after the base color was set, I decided to look at the cover and was like..."What is with the bangs!?" So then hair style #3 was born. So please tell me what you think.
The Girlfriends will be next. Followed by the Best friends.
---- Tools: Illustrator and Photoshop Time: Do not remember...boo Characters: (c) R. Riordan Artwork(c): Characters not mine...though the designs are...does that even make sense
I am doing a series of summer photo staring the cast of Percy Jackson. Just random pictures that one might take at camp. I am completely open to suggestions because...I never went to camp.
This is the first of the series, staring Percy, Nico and Thalia. Nico is completely getting loved on. Though I don't think he is enjoying it much.
I believe that these 3 would have a nice relationship.
Ahh cousins are the best. Drawing them just makes me happy.
Comments are wanted. and are always answered Fu ----
Edit: And yes Percy does have black hair. Originally, Percy's hair start out a dark brown-black. Pitch black is a boring color! But after light and effects his hair really lighten up. I ended up liking it, because it broke up all that dark hair...so I didn't fix it. I WILL fix that issue in future artwork.
Tools: Photoshop Time: about 6 hours Characters: belong to Rick Riordan Artwork belongs to me!
So after 13+ long hours of painting, I finally finished this painting! I'm pretty sure most of you guys already know who these characters are, but just in case you don't, from top to bottom, Leo Valdez, Frank Zhang, Hazel Levesque, Piper Mclean, Jason Grace, Annabeth Chase, and Percy Jackson from the Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan.
I just finished the book today, and I loved it! I won't go into details because I don't want to spoil it for the people out there who haven't read it yet, but I gotta say I wanna strangle Rick for that awful cliff-hanger at the end. And now we have to wait for another year for the House of Hades.
So anyway, I've been wanting to draw these 7 Demigods from last year, but I never got the chance or time. So I'm really happy that I got to finish this painting. Just for the record, this is the first time for me painting this much people in one drawing. I tried my best to capture each of their personality, and also the little details like Percy's and Annabeth's necklaces, Jason's scar, and Leo's tool belt. But please forgive me if I missed any details, I just got really tired and have decided to just leave it here. For the background I intentionally made the colors similar to the cover of the book just so it'll get the same mood or vibe.
So there you go, I do hope you guys will like it, and please do leave a comment, or better yet a critique. I would really really appreciate it you guys. I would love to hear feedback and know what I can improve on my drawings. Thanks a lot!
EDIT : A few months ago Disney Hyperion contacted me, and they said that they would like to use the image for a poster accompanying Rick's final novel 'Blood of Olympus' to be sold in certain stores. I was so surprised and I really couldn't believe it at first. It really is such an honour, and I'm just so ecstatic to take part in the Percy Jackson series. I've updated the painting because I felt that it had lots of flaws on it. I redid most of their faces, and repainted the clothes and water as well. ________________________________________

It's Percy Jackson! My favorite book character of all time. God bless Rick for creating him. After 10 long hours of painting, I finally finished it!
With the release of Mark of Athena, I wanted to re-draw Percy to celebrate. I've drawn Percy twice before, but none have satisfied me. I didn't base this drawing on Logan Lerman, I like him, but he isn't very suitable as Percy in my opinion. This is how I 'see' Percy in my mind when I read the books. I do realize he looks more grown-up here, I did that intentionally. This is how I pictured him looking like in The Last Olympian. That's why he's not wearing Camp Jupiter's purple t-shirt, and he doesn't have the tattoo and the tablet on the necklace. I am so so excited for the Mark of Athena, but I haven't got the book yet, so please guys, no spoilers!
Anyway, onto the drawing itself, I tried to put more details into this one, which is something I rarely do. But this is Percy I'm painting, so it doesn't really bother me. Played more with the lighting and also shadows. I realize that the water doesn't look like water, I got lazy so that's the best I can do at the moment. The anatomy still has some flaws as well, but I am extremely happy with how his face turned out. Overall, I'm pleased with this piece.
Please leave me a critique guys, I would really really appreciate that. I'd love to know what I could improve on my drawings. Comments and faves are also very much appreciated. But please, if you guys have the time, leave me a critique okay? Thanks a lot you guys! ________________________________________
Specifications Computer : Mac OS X Software : Adobe Photoshop CS5 Hardware : Wacom Intuos 4 Tablet Time : 10 hours+ Reference : Used
Species: Pyroar Age: Adult (around 30) Gender: Male Type: Items: Bottle of Muddy Water Nature: Calm (Takes plenty of Siestas) Ability: Rivalry-Sesal will gain strength when faced with competition of the same gender
Work Up: Sesal thinks or sings along native songs and raises his fighting spirit
Noble Roar: Sesal lets out a Noble Roar that lowers the target's will to fight
Fire Fang: Sesal attacks his target with flame covered fangs
Take Down: Sesal tackles the target with his whole body
Sesal is actually very obssessed with image, it may not be evident when you meet him but there are still traces of that insecure teenager in him. He wants people to believe that he isnt like other felines, selfish and greedy. He has a daughter of a different species, that should mean something right? Often times he forgets that he is a father and must treat CC like a daughter and not a friend, which causes some arguments and fights between them. Though they both know that Sesal wants to raise a wonderful child and CC just wants to make her father proud to have adopted her.
When Sesal was a cub he was very self conscious and was always worried about how others viewed him. He barely had any self confidence and relied on others opinions in order to feel good/bad about himself. But during his teens he decided he was tired of it, he rebelled and went against everything, arguing over things unimportant and thinking only of himself. When he became a young adult he started to finally think of others and stopped being so argumentative. He grew up. That's when he met CC, she had just stumbled out of the fog one day, he assumes, because when he found her she was sitting out in the open near his town. He had heard of mons' coming from the fog with no idea what they were before and he saw in her eyes a younger him. He saw that insecure cub with no drive in life, just alive but not living. He took her in, he didn't want anybody else to feel what he felt. They were together for a long time, happy. They had both found a purpose, each other. That's when Sesal cleaned himself up big time, he couldn't be a bad role-model to this mon', she had so much to explore and find, so much to see, so much to learn. He didn't want her to be like him when she grew up, feeling alone and insecure, so he took care of her as best as he could.
Species: Cubchoo Age: Teenager (15ish) Gender: Female Type: Items: Template Gloves, Hand-made Kunai Nature: Adamant (Somewhat Stubborn) Ability: Snow Cloak- when it hails, CC will be able to maneuver around better than other pokemon
Growl: CC will growl (through others just find it cute) and will lower the targets will to attack
Fury Swipes: CC will swipe at the target multiple times in succession
Icy Wind: CC summons a gust of freezing air to attack her target
Encore: CC encourages the target to use its last move again
CC is a proud little bear, she will do anything to keep up with others and often wont admit when she's at fault. She believes in what she believes and it takes a lot to change her mind. She'll often argue just to argue. And while she doesnt tell anybody, she's very self-conscious and is often ashamed of what she cant do and her weakness to fighting types. In addition to be a stubborn little cub, she also really likes to pull pranks on her father Sesal, which often gets her in tons of trouble.
Ah finally got around to making a proper ref for my fave baby AND I'm finally gonna just post his back story now !!
Brighteyes Male/Colt Young Teen Pegasus No Cutiemark Bashful/Shy/Laid Back
When Brighteye's was born he was very ill. He wasn't crying or wiggling; he looked like he was sleeping. A strong unicorn with healing powers was called upon in an attempt to save the little foal. The unicorn cast a powerful spell and brought him back from the brink. Unfortunately, damage had already been done. He was left without the vital magic that allows typical pegasi to fly, walk on clouds and most importantly, the magic that allows all ponies to obtain their cutiemark. The unicorn managed to grant him the ability to walk on clouds, but that's as much as her magic could do for him.
I made him in like, 2012, but funny enough, the season four finale kind of fits with his story seeing as the pegasi in the episode that lost their magic couldn't fly, lost their cutiemarks and (temporarily) had pale eyes. Since he was born this way, I don't think it's too much of a stretch for his eyes to be permanently pale.
Heh, that's all for now!! I hope he doesn't seem too mary sue ish? ahaha
I have been working on this picture in-between finals and finally it is finished! I gave Splinter back his scary purple robe. I think he missed it. I also don't think I will ever draw a tree again. Hopefully this blob-tree isn't too offensive to most people hehe. Also.. if anyone can guess who the action figure is in this picture, I shall give them one free internet!
Anyhoo.. this is a turtle-y Christmas card dedicated to all my friends and loved ones. You all mean the world to me and I hope you have so much fun spending time with your families or with whatever you do this holiday season!
Happy Holidays! <3
I don't claim ownership of anything related to the TMNT. o_o
That title. I just don't have a better idea.^^''''
So, simple idea and simple drawing of the princesses swimming, but I had it in my head for a long time now.
I saw the pegasi scene from the 1940' Disney film, Fantasia and I really liked how the pegasi were swimming kinda like swans (and live in nest, btw), so this where the idea came from. You can check it out here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_EDBM…
But why with the princesses and not with some pegasi. Well because of their colors and slender body, I already kinda looked at Celestia and Luna like swans. The other ones just joined in.
Btw, Twilight is grumpy, 'cos the whole elegence alicorn thing still doesn't work for her. Or something like that.^^''''
Characters and MLP:FiM (c) Lauren Faust, Hasbro Star and debris brush (c) Artwork (c) me No stealing. Thank you.
I did the bottle meme. It was really fun to do .3. It's the Olympians from Percy Jackson I'm to lazy to do a list of who's who, but you maybe can guess? It's how the gods looks like for me ^^ I really loe how it turned out
She was one of the coolest characters in the book. She's got like this sad history, she can fight, she leads the whole Roman legion (single-handedly), and she's always getting her heart broken--and yet she ignores that to do her duty for the camp. Like damn. What a girl, amiright? I got this idea from my doodle page[link] forgot the sword XD I also added the pooches:aurum and argentum i think. I'm really trying to work on my bgs, but they're still crappy. :/
So here's the trio from HoO The Lost Hero! I loved that book, and couldn't help drawing them.
Alright, well, I really like this one. I love drawing Leo, so there will probably be a lot more of him comming up in the future! Jason turned out good too. I think Piper turned out alright, but not quite right, I'll have to work on drawing her in the future.
