(Video In Description) Seren in Void by EstivalEquinox
(Video In Description) Seren in Void
Video Link:…


A drawing for something that turned into a quick experiment video in After Effects. 

Originally I had to create a story based off of guidelines in my Characters and Environments class. Admittedly this video is a bit of overachieving on my part. But I couldn't resist a sketch in my sketchbook of this guy and wanted to express what it is like when he is in his empty void. The drawing took roughly 8 hours, as did the video. Plus a chance to learn more about After Effects is greatly appreciated. I want to go into that.

About Seren:
Before passing onto their life on the planet, each human passes by an Angel known as the Beginning who gets to give the general destiny to everyone. But Seren was not allowed to go to the planet. His destiny was to hold the stars together in a state of mostly suspended animation. He must not know he is to hold the stars (and even the sun) in place or his awareness will permit him to move his body, thus shifting the stars of the universe. He cannot be touched in any way, negative or positive, or the stars will be temporarily blotted out, or even worse, lost.
So Seren must spend his entire life span (which so far has been 1,600 years) in this state. Unknowing, empty, quiet, only with his thoughts, breathing, and the rare utterance from the Beginning:
"I'm Sorry"

My friend :iconsilveraruka: took a nap in the community room....actually she's still napping for a tad longer. I couldn't resist trying my hand at a nice sketch.

This took roughly 30 minutes. I'm getting surprised at my speed.
Cute Kayleen by EstivalEquinox
Cute Kayleen
This was the drawing I nearly had done before my computer had to go into shop for several days.

I was playing around with coloring to see how much I could push something. Now I need to dive into other drawing projects for several days. :) Still hyped to get that speedpaint started soon though. The next Bright and Brilliant related drawing I have won't be as cute as the last drawings I've been playing with have been.

Oh yes, this is Princess Kayleen. She was really pretty in the drawing with the Dark Marauder. That had been the first time I had colored her digitally in ages. I wanted something with just her.

Also thanks again to :iconsilveraruka: Abstract background ideas art not mine forte... Thank goodness the speedpaint has an actual environment background. Those are a lot more fun for me.

Computer In Shop

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 10, 2015, 3:46 PM

Spring Break without being able to draw digitally for you guys so far has been... a strange feeling. I apologize that there hasn't been anything up.

I would have had another drawing up a few days ago, but sadly my external hard drive (where the drawing is stored) does not work on my Father's computer because it is a Windows XP. Likewise my tablet driver does not support windows XP.
So while my computer is in the shop a few days more, I have to wait before I can upload my next piece or make any digital artwork.
It's driving me a little crazy, but I'm making due by working on what is turning into a story bible for a project I'm working on with some of my fellow artists. :) It's a project to be published to deviantart. It will be up in the near future, but I can't give a definite date yet as we are still pulling together a lot of the final story and art elements before uploading. After many months on this project, I'd rather make sure it is ready before finally uploading. 

As for all other art and speedpaints, this is what I can say: 

The Bright and Brilliant is still being worked on in private. I'd rather stockpile pages. But if you haven't noticed, I've started working on art to better get to know who the characters are. 

The next speedpaint will actually be one of my Bright and Brilliant characters I've hesitated to show for awhile. But as I want you all to start knowing the characters a bit better, I'll introduce her in an... interesting way. 

The speedpaint after that will be Link from the Legend of Zelda, specifically Twilight Princess Link (Not to be confused with Princess Twilight Sparkle to my MLP watchers. One of the LOZ games really is called Twilight Princess.), as he has always been my favorite. :) I've always been looking for an excuse to draw him. 

I'm really excited about the projects I'm working on for this year. Once I get my computer back expect there to be another cute upload to test the limits of the new coloring techniques I've been practicing in my last two pieces. 

Until then I'll be getting back to writing. 

  • Mood: Artistic
  • Listening to: My Parents watch Star Trek
  • Eating: Rubarb on Fire
  • Drinking: Neurotoxin
In his dreams by EstivalEquinox
In his dreams
Because I wanted to make something cute.

The Dark Marauder and Princess Kayleen from the Bright and Brilliant. This is probably the people's imagination. A lot of citizens want the Dark Marauder and Kayleen to rule the country instead of King Edward. Maybe the Dark Marauder does too.... Kayleen is very kind after all.
Background is well, used tropes yes, but eh it works. I wanted to focus on the characters more. (They're so shiny~)

Thanks to :iconjenihudson: and :icondotssu: for guidance when I was getting stuck. 

Lately I've learned a lot about believing in my art through the DRWolf projects so... this feels like I've made a step forward.

Texture are a mixture of my own and by
Flower pedal brush found here…


:bulletblue: Edit Update:  Before I uploaded the original version I wasn't sure how to feel about the saturation of the colors of the characters and background. I updated it because every time I look at it, I felt like it could be brighter, deeper, and more contrasty in its darks and lights. I'm more satisfied with it now.

Tag, quality  deviant, you’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
