The Forbidden Library by Vivyi The Forbidden Library by Vivyi
I imagine both Marcilyn and Estelle alike both travel to the Capital City of Netheron in order to visit the "Forbidden" library, in order to quench their ever growing hunger for knowledge. It's forbidden because it's full of banned non fictional books, and Estelle enjoys controversy :XD: Knowing the Victorians, I imagine some of the books in the library wouldn't be all that bad. Done in my storybook style... using my new SAI brush as usual. :D (Just one brush, that's all~ I call it my "Vivabrush" :XD: )

Marcilyn's design has changed a little since I last drew her. I darkened her skin tone to make more sense with the story. (She's olive toned)

I love the expressions here! They kinda look like they got caught in The Forbidden Library and are like "uh-oh" haha, but Marcilyn is too interested in what she's reading to really care. XD

I love your style! It's so cute!! Heart

Awww thank you :love: Hehehe~ they would probably get caught by Margarette, Estelle's mother :giggle: And then she would proceed to attempt to fire Marcilyn from working on the rain machine, and Priscilla (Estelle's aunt) would give 100000x reasons to not fire her and convince her out of it hahahaha :XD:

I'm glad you like my style too <3 That means a lot :blushes:

I'm on Priscilla's side 100% !! I really like Marcilyn! Although you can't blame a mother for trying to enforce the rules haha (and what are aunts for but to go against them? hahaha) Such lovely characters! 

And you're very welcome! Meow :3

That means a lot :love: I'm glad you like my characters! Marcilyn is a very nice character x3 One of my favorites as well! :D Hahaha, Margarette's a rule breaker herself. She has no right to enforce rules she doesn't follow :XD:

OOOOOH THIS IS PRETTY!! :la: 
Lovin' the whole eerie vibe you added with the colours! I've been thinking of getting SAI sometime, since it seems pretty user friendly from what I hear, and most of my favourite comic artists draw with it (it's interesting the diverse sorts of art you can make with it - some people use it for realism, then there's your adorable style, and then there's the completely different cute style of comics like Rock and Riot, and Griefer Belt. I find that so cool!!)

So what kind of books do you think the library contains that makes it so forbidden? Religious tomes? Anti-religious tomes? Science? Smutty fanfiction? :giggle:

I think this is the first time I've personally seen a drawing of Marcilyn with her hair down! :D It's pretty!! 
Also, is that a blush I see on Marcilyn's cheeks there? *waggles eyebrows*

Thaaankk yoooou <333

You should <3 It's only 50 dollars! Unless... well, I won't go there. Definitely buy it, it's worth it. But you can get custom brushes for it, and I have a folder for custom brushes that I've picked up over the years c: vivyi.deviantart.com/favourite… plus some tutorials here: vivyi.deviantart.com/favourite… SAI is really, really good... especially if you have your own tablet. (Although you can use it without a tablet too) I highly recommend it, it's super easy to use, especially for a beginning artist. I think you'd be good at it c:

Hahahaha~ I actually wrote a story on this :XD: Heneurock's same sex literature ends up in the collection, as well as psychology books and smutty literature :XD: And forbidden scientific documentaries are included, for obvious reasons, as well as the remaining books about earth that didn't end up in the revolution's hands. There's a lot of about the history of Netheron, that I might cover in an overview if people are interested in knowing the history of it. (Poll time! :XD: )

Haha thank yooou <3 I have another picture here with her hair down: The Victorian Marcilyn Locket and then I drew a fun Halloween picture here of Estelle and Marcilyn: Happy Halloween!

Hehe, you caught me~ :XD: Estelle has one too, but it's less noticeable :XD: They are so cute, LOL <333

No problem!! :heart: 

Ah, I didn't know I had to pay for it :XD: But I'll see if I can convince my dad to pay for it, heheh! Luckily I've already got a tablet I can use :la: I haven't been able to use it much yet, mainly because the desk I had until recently was too small to accommodate all the rubbish I keep on it, and also because the programs I currently have on the computer are not quite fitting with me just yet (I have MS Paint, but that doesn't provide all the desired affects I'd like, despite me being very used to it, and I have some version of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator, but I still struggle with those). I'll have to do some more research on SAI and get some screenshots of how it looks though to see if it'll he perfect for me, since $50 is about R500 in South African currency at the moment :XD: Maybe he'll get it for myself and my sister to make up for the price or something, since she also might like to use it (she herself is a graphic designer).

YESSSS I AM ALWAYS A FAN OF GOOD WORLDBUILDING, YEAH :dummy:
Wriiite it!!! Well, when you can :la: 
Ooh I'll check those pictures out! Nice!

I saaawww that ;) Yesssss I ship it. So much :heart: 
(btw, speaking of ships, did you see my new drawing of Jamie and Seb? :D )

I would recommend watching some speed paints on the web! Many users use SAI for those. It depends what speed paint you watch, but you can see a lot of SAI's interface too, and how it works.

Ahhh you have illustrator? Ahhh I've always wanted to try that, haha! I have photoshop on my computer. I've gotten used to using it... it's not too hard once you get used to it. It is a lot more complicated though, and requires some setting up with your tablet too.

Ah, I see. R500? Sounds like a lot compared to $50 :XD:  Haha, good luck convincing your dad to get it! I hope he does, it's a really neat program and can do a lot!

I'll have to~ It seems everyone is looking forward to it :XD: Time to go collecting information about Netheron, Heneurock, Huerta, and Drethathon.

Yaaay <3

Hehehe~ meee too~ I just have to contain myself though :XD: They actually are currently being written as an angsty "unrequited" love couple in the prequel, except that both of them have feelings towards each other, but are too afraid to admit it. And then I'm currently writing the sequel, which is all about them realizing their feelings for each other. It's super fun to write~

(I did see it actually! I haven't had much time to comment on it because of college, but I'll definitely pop by and leave a message during the weekend if I can ;) )

Thank you <333 The library is sort of an eerie place, although I actually just went with my gut instinct on purpose and didn't pay much attention to the concept behind it's eerieness. :XD:

I'm diggin' the texture of the canvas--it looks almost like you did this as a part of a tapestry. Nice work.  No libraries should be forbidden---just the people who like to scout them in the name of self righteous causes. Best from the Alley--cat
