Project: SPUD and Spec The Foes by Jowybean Project: SPUD and Spec The Foes by Jowybean
First off hello all, I apologise for a lack of uploads. but I have been extremely busy with my commercial freelance business work and commissions that have distracted me from posting on DA. I aim to put out a new update to catch everybody up to speed on the future of Jowybean on this platform for those who know me for ponies and other fanart do not worry between business  I am still working on multiple pieces that are bigger detailed scenic illustrations then the simple character stuff I have done. So be patient and know I will still be posting as often as I can on here though it will be focusing more often on personal work and detailed artwork .  

If you want to get your pony fix i post all my sketches on my twitter at the moment. though i will post up sketches on DA if I think their good enough. 

anyway now returning to 

project Scales and Jenny

This is what I call this idea for now  what it potentially would be a shouen inspired scifi fantasy epic mixing in elements of western influences.  
This either is going to be a comic or pitch for a show.

The above mishmash of character designs are ideas of foes, bad guys the hero cast would fight. 


Millions of years ago the world was created with the purest of magic ,known as Spectrum protected by the Fabrications, Two ancient evils The Iron Spawn and The Galestormers stole some of Spectrum and transformed it in to a tool/drug called Spec that allowed them and other criminal empires to raise in power and infect millions .The remaining fragments of the Fabrications have recruited individuals on the planet who are gifted with the pureness of Spectrum and have formed SPUD (Spectrum Peace Unity Defenders) a global hero/ spy organisation to fight back against the imposing evils. Two new junior recruits have just been appointed to the movement, Scales and Jenny. SPUD believes They show a lot of promise in the ongoing fight. But with them coming from two opposite sides of the world can they get along with each other and Fully commit to the tough missions/adventures awaiting them?


Spectrum is the magic that created the world of Scales and Jenny and its protectors the Fabrications . it is used as the primary energy that keeps the worlds heart and its civilisations alive. Spectrum is the embodiment of pure goodness, whoever comes in contact  with it (good or bad) will be blessed with powers or changes depending on the individuals actions and heart. Spectrum can only be mastered by those who choose to use it for good or evil. 


Spec is the tainted version of Spectrum, the magic that created the world of Scales and Jenny and its protectors the Fabrications . it is used as the primarily power of control by the ancient evils The Iron Spawn, The Galestormers,and crime syndicates sold as a drug or used as a weapon to corrupt the world .

SPUD is a world wide organisation made up of individuals from different nations who have the pureness of spectrum meaning they are born with the goodness of magic in them that then awakens at some point incredible gifts and powers capable of stopping Spec and its dark origins. some of these people have been tainted by Spec but use it as a weapon against the enemies.
At this current stage I am trying to get a body of finished artwork/ pitch written up about the characters, world and lore. 

you can follow the rough process on my twitter and Instagram where i have been regularly updating the development of the world…

You can check out what information I have on my world and characters here ;) (Wink)

the girl with the purple hair looks like she is going to turn good in the end or something. but the little pup with the sweater looks like she had a bit too much of spec

a bit curious as to the MKO character. considering some of the references considered her an ally. although that may not have been the case.
