I had a lot of fun doing this one. The characters actually have a story behind them, one which will likely never be told since I don't wright. However, they do belong to me, don't use them for youself (doubt anyone would, but lets cover all bases here)

The background, clothing etc are loosely based on Mayan motifs. My Pre-Columbian art studies have to be put to use somehow =P

I'm working on a black and white version of this for my father to use to advertise his comic shop.

Media:
Micron Pens
Copic Marker
Gouache
Gold Ink

I really love that background, it has this watery kind of feel that's really unique and fits really well.

Thats really nicely done. And it's even cooler your useing it to help out your dad (who is doubly cool case he has a comic shop!). The blue elf like fellow is adorable and the kid looks great. Kids are so bloddy hard to draw and get the right age.

I wish you would share your stories. Your images inspire so much. I'd love to know the stories behind them.

Oh you are so right. I have so much trouble drawing kids sometimes, especially between the ages of 13-19. I can get realy young and I can get real old, but adolescents is hard.

I would love to share these stories, but I don't have the time or the desire tow rite them. I might ry and work out a simplified version maybe as a children's story, but ahhh this particular one doe snot lend itself to a children's audience ^^;;

I've considered webcomics, but I'd be to inconsistent to make it work, and agian, the writing would be not too great.
Actually it's not so much the writing, it's the editing -_- I did ok in my creative writing classes up until the editing part.

*chuckles* Considering my inability to spell or type to save my life, or the fact that though I am 24 years old I write at a 17 year old level... you can't be any worse then I am. ^_^

And alot of the famous writers have other peoplw edit thier work. So just try writting down your ideas or if writting doesn't work, get a small tape recorder and talk your ideas into it, then actualy try to write your story. You can always get some one you know and/or trust to edit it for you later. ^_^

Just a sugestion. Pay the old odd duck no mind. ^_^
