UPD July 2016: Please, support Sparkler Monthly Magazine: Year 4 Kickstarter! Final days!

In the creation of this picture both digital and traditional media were used. It was inked traditionally, the lines were scanned and colored/toned digitally, then printed and colored with traditional media, namely, Letraset Promarkers (+a touch of coloured pencils). 

Here is a Step-by-Step of the process:…


Happy Valentine's Day! =^__^=


(This is fan art of Jen Lee Quick`s  (:iconwulfmune:) OEL manga Off*Beat (… ))

Mandy decided to make Valentine Cards for her friends, Tory and Colin. So that it would be clear that this is not a romantic overture but a gesture of friendship she thought of a suitable image to place on the cards...

(She didn't have to think a long time about it. Because she ships Tory x Colin.)

Will her true feelings reach them?


This picture is a remake of my 2009 Valentine picture:…

This picture is also my entry for the 2nd Neila`s (:iconneilak20:) (Super Mega Awesome Art) Monthly Prompt Challenge in Sparkler Monthly`s forums:… The prompt theme is "Valentines!"

Also I have submitted this picture to DeviantArt`s 2014 Valentine`s Day Art Exchange. I imagine that this Valentine could be sent from one fellow shipper to another. Or something...
