I've been drawing as a hobby as early as I can remember, but only started taking it more "seriously" starting in 2012.

I enjoy working on original stories (nearly of my art focuses around my characters and plots):

1) Blue Star focuses on political repression during 1930s USSR and protagonist Kuzma's dreamy Cosmist/trans-humanist private thoughts and what happens when these two separate "worlds" collide. A writer by trade, young Kuzma is idealistic yet cynical. He hates being a propagandist writer and has a limited social life. Meanwhile, his iconoclastic father, a former Russian Civil War "hero," gets into trouble with the Communist Party, which has recently started to purge so-called "counter-revolutionaries".

Kuzma is in for a ride: he rekindles his relationship with his father, questions his stagnant creative life, and unexpectedly falls in love for first time...with Katya, who just so happens to be his hated father's ex-mistress, Katya.

Throughout the course of the series, Katya and Kuzma learn to trust each other and find themselves learning more about human interaction and nature as they become closer. Katya, jaded after years of meaningless work to support her disabled father and still scarred by the abortion that had been the end result of her untimely affair with Ardalion years before, finds the courage to trust and love again...

Comm - Experiencing the Outerspace by Kemikeni

Awesome pagedoll of Kuzma by Kemikeni!

3) I also am working on a minor series called Sam in New York, which is the story of a young Jewish man living in New York city who attends law school (at the behest of his parents). He argues with his parents about his future and desires nothing more than to be an actor some day. He idolizes men like Thomashefsky and others who were part of the Yiddish theater scene in the 1920s in New York City. One day, he works up the courage to leave law school once and for all and seek out his dreams in showbiz. Will it work for him?

Updated my personal website with a scrollable comic reader with text so you can try reading Blue Star (what I have of it so far, anyways) on the site:

www.charcoalfeatherstudios.com…

There are links back to each comic page on dA since I feel like the comments on each comic page sort of make up the page itself (with the in-depth discussions and analysis that often take place).
Preview of my wip commission for Tranquilcobra! Please tell me if there's anything you'd like to see added or changed. Hope the background (medieval background) is to your taste and that the pose chosen fits his character/role.

Thanks so much for the awesome comment and feedback! I think increasing shading works for certain styles that are meant to be more dramatic or scenes/lighting that are more dramatic, but lately, I've been moving towards more subtle shading due to being sort of captivated by really light watercolour-wash styles I've seen. But yes, generally speaking, it is definitely a good choice to try new things!

Thank you so much! Yeah, comics do take up a lot of time and sometimes you even want to give up when you don't have enough energy/time to get it going. But it's definitely worth it!
