Sandcastle Kings (Collab with Nestly) by Ascynd Sandcastle Kings (Collab with Nestly) by Ascynd
Perhaps the most important lesson about Earth that Djehuti learned from this exercise was this: Earth does not like to move. It does not like to change.

When Nymble offered to help him build a sandcastle, Djehuti insisted on making one by himself first. He did not expect it to be impressive, and it surely wasn't. It took all his will just to overcome the sand's resistance and get it to shape itself into a small, cylindrical mound... it really, really seemed to want to stay in a loose pile on the shore. But eventually he managed it... the same determination he had to do it on his own was exactly the quality he needed to command the element. Finally satisfied with his first steps, Djehuti planted a flag on his homework and was ready to join his friend in the magnificent sandcastle project.

Nymble, as usual, seemed to display an unusual level of ability... he could move huge amounts of sand at once! Furthermore, he seemed to take it as a competition, and was out to build the best castle of the bunch! But Djehuti was not to be counted out. He might not have had the skill yet to reform large swaths of the shore in one motion, but he did have an artistic eye and a certain level of fine manipulation with the small amounts of sand he could manipulate. With Nymble quickly raising up the main body of the castle and Djehuti focusing on sculpting the small spires and towers, the two were able to build a fairly impressive sand palace!

This is a collaboration with Nestly... She sketched out the scene and characters and I colored and shaded it. I think it turned out pretty nice and shows elements of both our styles!
Oh and the castle is pretty much the same one zetina had Djehuti make here:
this isn't art class by zetina

I think this is 2(/200) coins for my contribution... and of course credit for week 3 Earth homework.

This turned out so great Ascynd!! >D Nymble is so pushy and just had to barge in and make a scene out of everything again, lol.
I really like the texture you used on the sand and the thicker lineart for it to stand out among the background! Plus it's always cool seeing a hint of both our styles! >D
(For me it's the eyes... you can totally tell I was involved because of my eyes, haha)

Haha glad you like it! Yea the lines around the castle were pretty thick to begin with, I thought I'd experiment with the line thickness a bit. And yep those eyes are distinctive, hehe...

haha Nymble's being so smug and then there's Dje's genuine glee at a job well done :'D
