--------------------------------------
ARTIST THOUGHTS: This is what constitutional law essays drive you to do – nursing a little sketch for three days straight in between writing about some of the most boring and inane dribble known to mankind. O____o Anyway yes, this started out as a very quick mouse drawn sketch in Flash (ALL HAIL THE SMOOTHING TOOL ) but rather than face writing my essay, I imported it into Photoshop and kept fiddling with it. And on the third day Fayt was finished and IT WAS GOOD.

First Star Ocean fan art I’ve drawn which isn’t in wallpaper form, but that’s what happens when you do rushed computer sketches at a puny resolution and wind up working on them even though they can’t be resized. hmygod: So yeah, it’s Fayt. And for once Albel is nowhere in sight, oh my Lord. X_____x *Jumps off the nearest roof for committing such blasphemy* But Fayt is quite cute in his own way so I didn’t mind too much… he’s got nice hair, anyway. And I like drawing nice hair. Hence I drew Fayt in order to feel nice. And I do feel nice. O__o OMG WOW, don’t you just love logic??? ::rofl:: Nice enough to not subject Fayt this time around to the sadistic tendencies which seem to make themselves known whenever I do Star Ocean fan art… damn that puppy dog look. >__> (“Don’t HURT me Zen!!” T___T) I put it down to the self-imposed game exile I’m currently suffering through; I’m definitely losing my mean fan art edge. BAH HUMBUG! U__U

TECHNICAL STUFF:The most spontaneous and simplest sketch I’ve done in about a year, so it nearly winded up in scraps… ^^; Since I liked how the colouring turned out though, I gave it a shot in my main gallery. *Whew* The brushes definitely helped as well – for all Star Ocean 3 players, the diagram brushes were a homage to Fayt’s natural engineering skill, the hex cells a reference to his gene (you all know which gene I’m talking about!) and the feathers for his delightful battle skill, Ethereal Blast. ^__^ The binary “code” was just some rapidly typed zeroes and ones… I did try and find some binary code brushes, but then I realized just how lazy-arsed that would’ve been when it ain’t that hard to type two numbers over and over again. *Cough* O___@ Players who’ve completed the game will know why binary code matters! ;) Personally I know absolutely nothing about the stuff, you’re looking at someone who nearly failed software development class. ^__^;;;;

---------------

And that’s all from me folks, I’ve still got an essay to finish so as of now… I RECOMMENCE GOING ABSOLUTELY BANANAS. *Foams at the mouth* @___@

Presenting…. The Zen jukebox!

Quietly he laughs, and shaking his head
Creeps closer now, closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow, and quicker than flies
His arms are all around me, and his tongue in my eyes…
“Be still be calm be quiet now, my precious boy
Don’t struggle like that or I will only love you more…”
It’s much too late to get away, or turn on the light
The spider man is having you for dinner tonight!

~ ‘Lullaby’, by The Cure

ARTIST THOUGHTS:*Rubs chin* It’s interesting how so many SO3 players I’ve talked to in the past month opted to make Albel a healer in their party. It’s also interesting how the newly awoken perverted fangirl in me viewed that trend. ^__~ Plus, you can blame my pal Niccon for being the detonator and pushing me to draw this idea in the first place. You people are most definitely never ending sources of inspiration, I swear… (and also bad influences.) =P

So er… yeah. *Temporary lapse of sanity* ALBEL!!! IMMUNISE ME!!!! It’s becoming readily apparent that I like giving Albel sharp objects, and even more readily apparent that I have no qualms about those sharp objects being used against Fayt, LOL. :D There’s a valid reason for all of this actually (for once >__> ) – this pic was drawn for Luciferia, in return for her sending me a copy of Star Ocean 2. Coz, well, I’ve completed SO3 and I need another game to breathe into my vital systems. *Coff* Hence I’ve drawn kink. Guilty as charged. ^__^;; Well hey, it was a natural progression in my gallery alright? You know… voodoo dolls… face paint… kink. Yay for evolution. > And besides, I NEEDED to draw something based on ‘Lullaby’ coz that’s the sexiest song ever and it deserves lots and lots of pictures (plus it almost describes the Peterny scene PERFECTLY), and all those references to a ‘spider man’ just made me think of Albel in his 3P outfit in which he looks very Black Widow-ish like indeed, though don’t ask about the whole nurse get-up coz that’s probably just the result of a very depraved mind. Uh huh. :nod:

*Furtive look* >__>;;

“………….”

Okay, change the subject now!

TECHNICAL STUFF: Take a look at the pic. What do you think was the hardest part to draw? Those hands maybe, or the apron? Fayt’s get-up maybe? Gawd no, it was the SYRINGE. O_____O;;;; That disarmingly simple little instrument made me crane my neck sideways for half an hour or more as I did some heavy duty editing on it in Photoshop, all because it turned out lopsided. It was so horribly obvious that I had to redraw nearly all of it from scratch on the computer with my crappy mouse, so LOOKIT THE NICE STRAIGHT SYRINGE WHEEEE. @__@ Apart from that though this was a fun pic to draw, and has pretty much cemented the fact that gradient-cel shading is what I will use as my default computer colouring style. :D However, this will most likely be the last fanart I upload for a long time since it’s back to uni I go-go where SO3 cannot follow… -____- in the meantime though enjoy, and if anyone wants a larger resolution then note me, as per usual! =P

So er…. who wants flu shots? ;)

-------------------
And now a word from our sponsor! :D

THE LOST HEART AND SUFFERING MUSE:

When the night had fallen

And I sat in a strangely cold summer air

My cigarette flared as I inhaled

And the wind spoke to me of words that never were



On the air there approached an omen

A sign of spirits and things to come

Visions of sculpture which ramble about history

And events of the future inevitably tainted by the past



Inhaling the incense which I crave and consume,

A voice stirred inside that I could not ignore

Whispers of mistakes and triumphs, every action

According to Newton, invariably leads to reaction



It was then, upon the final breath of tobacco smoke

I heard the voices of the trees begging me to listen

Their wisdom sharing a truth which had eluded me

“Ghosts will only haunt bodies with desperate souls”

~ Poem written by Demonstelme2buycandy

------------------------

ARTIST THOUGHTS - It’s been a long time coming and an even greater rush (well, fast for me =P) to get this done by the 7th, but somehow I’ve made the cut! ^^; My first collaboration with another deviant, in which I agreed to draw something revolving around a poem written by my pal Demonstelme2buycandy. When I first read the poem, I was immediately struck by how well it could be applied to my character Cal, and since I’d already been dying for an excuse to draw Cal, that was an added bonus. =P It took AGES though to realize that the best way to go about this was through a comic page, I was sitting at my desk fretting for a whole afternoon until it hit me and I was like, “Duuuuuhhh, stupid…” :slow: :slow: As you can see, I only had enough room to work with two stanzas so it wound up being the first and last. Man, I love that end line. :D : Muahaha, and the shinies are back, I told you they’d be!

--------------------

ARTIST THOUGHTS: Behold! After playing numerous RPGs in her lifetime, Zen has come to the conclusion that the following two rules should be taken up with great gusto by any aspiring games developer!

#1 - If for any reason, one party member should feel the need to sneak into another member’s hotel room for ‘a chat’ (yeah right), and that said party member falls into the category of ‘rival’ (or ‘annoying’ will do =P) and happens to be sleeping quite contentedly upon arrival… for the love of God, DON’T WAKE THEM UP RIGHT AWAY. O__O Abuse your powers of wakefulness, sneaky-late-night-intruder/perv! That’s why shaving cream and permanent markers were invented in the first place – to inflict early morning mirror madness!!!

#2 – If at any point in a game you should acquire one of the most ridiculous equippable accessories known to man, it should go without saying that the member of your party who would most likely take a sword to your abdomen should you ever contemplate the mere thought of them wearing said accessory… should be made to wear the accessory.

And with those words of wisdom out the way I henceforth put them into action, as if you couldn’t tell already from looking at this… ‘tis Albel, HAND OF DOOM’ing a delightfully oblivious Fayt. :D Partly inspired by the Peterny scene in the game when Albel snuck into Fayt’s room… this is what should’ve happened. ^__^ Also partly inspired by my acquisition of the Bunny Shoes and giving them to Albel… which DID happen. ^_____^ And I’m not the only one, am I?!?! C’mon, fess up SO3 players – I know the thought crossed your minds at least *once*. Oh yes, it must have... I’m onto you! O__o

Insanity aside, this WAS supposed to be a Valentines Day contest entry so I had to try and make it fit the theme… sorta. Maybe. I don’t know anymore. I do admit that this is the pairing that I find most interesting in the game – and have any SO3 players noticed that Albel is a little… well, biased when it comes to Fayt in battle? I’ve found that if anyone heals Albel then the most that they’ll get in reply is “You’re actually useful!” BUT when Fayt heals Albel, it’s a grudging “Thanks.” O_o *Ho ho ho* Oh yeah, and then there’s the whole I’m-going-to-sneak-into-your-room-alone-at-midnight-just-to-talk thing, but who cares about that really, how irrelevant. *Snort*

TECHNICAL STUFF: Hey hey kids, it’s wallpaper time again! Actually, that’s just my half-assed excuse to not make proper backgrounds for these fanarts so er…yeah, the secret’s out. >__> Ha, and this is one of those exceptionally rare occasions where I’ve actually used pink. Normally I stay well away from that colour, it rubs me up the wrong way since I perpetually think of Barbies and Bratz dolls whenever I look at it, but for the sake of the upcoming day of luuuuurve I’ve made an exception. My God, and look at those love heart brushes which I specially downloaded for the occasion. I FEEL LIKE SUCH A GIRL. :X__X

Still stuck in cel-shading mode, just like the last fanart I uploaded, and thanks to Fayt I’m getting closer to making the colouring look shinier… (I just can’t make Albel shiny enough for my liking… -__-) Oh yeah, and Fayt’s officially annoying. To draw, that is. I understand now why many Fayt fanarts chop off his legs, they’re hideously complex which then begs the question – how does he manage to be the fastest moving character? O___o But I got my revenge by scrawling on his face with Photoshop’s brush tool, what delicious fun. > So yeah, same thing applies as always – wallpaper is free to use, if larger resolution needed, note me. Wheee. =P


So then, happy early Valentines Day to all you couples out there, and as for the rest of us singles… remember, there are ALWAYS Bunny Shoes. Always. And they give you 30% more movement too. :D

Fayt: *Looking in bathroom mirror*

CHARACTER: A moon phoenix!

OWNER: Errr… no one in particular, I guess. ^^;

MEDIUMS: Felt tip ink (shadow shading on the phoenix and the moon, line art), Photoshop CS (background, cel-type colouring), Paintshop Pro 5 (lighting effects, touchups)

FONT: ‘KissmeKissmeKissme’ (free download)

-------------------

ARTIST THOUGHTS: And so after a huge art drought, here’s something I’ve been carrying around in my head for about half a year and only got around to spitting out this week! On Monday I got home from my last exam, had a change of clothes and then immediately sat at my dusty desk to draw this, and in record time (for me anyway!) it’s been completed in three days. Two of those days were heat waves, so maybe the heat has a strange effect on my hand or something… O___o;; *Decides to not try and make any scientific theories* =P

Anyway for once, I’m going to cut straight to the chase and say what this pic is sorta about: to be honest, there wasn’t any specific meaning at first but things developed along the way and now I can ramble about it, ho ho ho! ^.^ This is meant to be a ‘sister’ pic to ‘Salute the Sun’ since they’re sorta similar, except this pic is more about dying then rebirth. *Cue - depressing music* T__T The moon phoenix sits on a moon that was once new, but is now crumbling away because there’s a new moon rising, and NO it’s not breaking up because the phoenix has been eating too many hotdogs lately! I guess the phoenix is doomed to be dragged down with its moon, but the less bleak-minded of you will probably be able to come up with something happier so by all means! :D I don’t really have any explanation for the cobwebby stuff so interpret it however you wish… and those are supposed to be diamonds draped from the moon by the way, but the colouring blurred the string and the stars suit the title’s diamond reference much better, so er… darn. Man, this really was a bit of a random pic, eh…? :D

TECHNICAL STUFF: This marked my return to ink shading and shinies after my cel-colouring stint, but I still used the polygon tool to fill in the colour this time instead of my usual method of using Prismacolour pencils. (Poor neglected things. ^^; ) I also tried to do a better job at making more realistic looking clouds, but I still have quite a ways to go… :/ I look in galleries and see amazing clouds and I can’t for the life of me figure out how people do it, arrrrrrrrg! @__@ Oh yeah, and have a look at the pic – see anything out of the ordinary? OH MY GODFATHER IT’S BIRDY FEET!!!!! O__O;; Yes peoples, this was one time when I couldn’t find a way to avoid drawing them without making it look like the phoenix was somehow magically levitating with stumps for legs, and this just served to remind me WHY it is that I do my best to not draw birdy feet whenever possible... O_____o The left foot is completely mangled, although don’t be confused about the right foot – there’re actually two and a half claws showing and the one at the back isn’t showing at all, but because of all the hair in the way, it looks like all four claws are visible. (Not that it makes much difference, the foot still looks groddy. >_<) Give me feathers any day! *Throws hands up in defeat*

Lastly, if anyone wants to see this pic as a print then just say the word and it shall be so – I’ve finally gotten myself into the habit of scanning things at 600 DPI, even though it’s slowly killing my comp, lol. =P *Pets her comp*

CHARACTERS: Liam (the taller one) and Noel

OWNER: Me! Hello! :D

MEDIUMS: Felt tip pen (line art), Photoshop CS (cel colouring), Paintshop Pro 5 (touchups), downloaded brushes (background)

------------------------------

Yeah yeah yeah, I know… I already uploaded this pic, albeit in a different form, but this is what happens when Zen gets sidetracked on the computer – the original line art for this pic had been scanned in a long time ago, and I just happened to come across it two weeks ago at a time when I was thinking, “You know, I REALLY should be trying to colour something via computer for the very first time…” O___O;; Not to mention I’m trying to get myself more familiar with Photoshop instead of leeching off Paintshop Pro all the time, so I figured I might as well kill two birds with one stone. Hence, this is Zen’s first ever serious attempt at completely cg’ing a pic, behold the amateurism…! *Laughs* I’ve always been a really big fan of cel-shading but I’ve never been able to do it up to now, so for as long as I can remember, I’ve been mooning away tragically looking at all the lovely cel shading pieces everyone seems to be doing all around me and thinking, “How?? HOW?!?!?!” T__T But I finally came across a tutorial that made sense, and now the polygon tool is one of Zen’s best friends alongside dodge! ^__^

Colouring this was a lot more fun than I thought it would be, even though it was extremely time consuming. X___X Not good for the eyes either, these glasses of mine are getting more and more dated as I stare at the computer all the way up to 4 in the morning! Anyway, like I said before in my Side 7 description of the first version of this pic:

… these two characters are from an actual storyline I’ve been carrying around for awhile, but nothing has been finalised yet so I won’t put up any big descriptions. (Luckily for all of you! ) As was mentioned briefly in the prose and above, featured here are Liam and Noel, who have a relationship of sorts with a strange foundation… to cut a long story short, their relationship started out as a bargain of sorts but as I’ve investigated in the prose I wrote, it doesn’t have to remain that way. I won’t elaborate further because I don’t know how to explain things without taking another 3000 words, so I’ll leave it at that! ^^;;; These two however are the only characters I have who could have a romantic relationship, so I’ll be paying close attention to them… and yes, Zen is actually a hopeless romantic at heart! So why haven’t I been drawing any couples for two years? O____o;; Er, I don’t know. ^^;;; *Coff*

Actually, to make up for it, I’m hoping to make this pic the first part of a small series based on the five senses, hence the title ‘Touch.’ Inspiration withstanding, I shall act on that idea! ^^ Stay tuned, I’ll see what I can do…


Yes, I’m getting so lazy that I’m cutting and pasting my own descriptions. :: Finally, this was also the first time I experimented with brushes, and if anyone wants to download the brushes used here (and more!) follow the yellow brick road!

http://www.8nero.net/brushes/
http://www.annikavonholdt.com/brushes/x.htm

That’s pretty much all I have to say, I’ve worn myself writing three different descriptions for this pic for three different versions… (prose, black and white version, coloured version) *Faints* You can decide which version you prefer! =P

Firstly, a link to the prose that I wrote for this pic which sorta explains the context: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/9450576/

FEATURED CHARACTERS: Liam (the tallest) and Noel

CREATOR: Me! *Hi!* ^^

MEDIUMS: Black felt tip ink (the subject matter, obviously) and Paintshop Pro 5 (background and light effects)

-------------------
Secondly, for those of you who have followed the link I left at DA, hello there! I should probably point out at the start that the prose you’ve just read is not an excerpt from any story I’ve written, but is merely a possible outcome… these two characters are from an actual storyline I’ve been carrying around for awhile, but nothing has been finalised yet so I won’t put up any big descriptions. (Luckily for all of you! ) As was mentioned briefly in the prose and above, featured here are Liam and Noel, who have a relationship of sorts with a strange foundation… to cut a long story short, their relationship started out as a bargain of sorts but as I’ve investigated in the prose I wrote, it doesn’t have to remain that way.

So why haven’t I been drawing any couples for two years? O____o;; Er, I don’t know. ^^;;; *Coff*

Actually, to make up for it, I’m hoping to make this pic the first part of a small series based on the five senses, hence the title ‘Touch.’ Inspiration withstanding, I shall act on that idea! ^^ Stay tuned, I’ll see what I can do…

Now then, what about the technical side of things? This is the first time in awhile that I’ve decided to forego colour, but I just got the feeling that colour would’ve wrecked everything. Call it women’s intuition or something, I dunno. It didn’t mean I had to forego my shiny effects though, I can’t do without those! ;) There’s not really too much that bugs me about this pic, which is surprising since I’m usually always bugged by a lot of things… Liam’s right hand continuously urks me though since it looks out of proportion to everything else in the pic, but I threw that hand in at the last moment so that’s probably why. XP Lotsa hands, in here, what a nightmare to draw! X___X Thank goodness I’ve gotten Touch outta the way, the other senses should be easier! ;)

Well, I think I’ve said enough for now, so peace everyone, and may you all find love even in the most unexpected circumstances! :D

CREATOR: Garnet Cross

MEDIUMS: Derwent watercolour pencils (Rainbow Moon) and Paintshop Pro 5 (background and light effects)

Rainbow Moon is a phoenix with special significance to Garnet Cross, and she was a beautiful phoenix to draw. ^^ After a good long break from rainbows, I went ahead and created another one for this pic to match Rainbow Moon’s name, and this time it wasn’t as hard, thank goodness! =P

In this pic, Rainbow Moon is arcing across the sky, painting a rainbow with her plumage and bringing fair weather. In the clouds are a bunch of air phoenixes who are making their appearance after the storm, and I now charge you all with the task of finding them all! :D I originally put in six, but after a closer look, there could be a seventh which snuck in without me noticing… O___o *How on earth did it manage that?* If you can find anymore, then let me know! ^^

Arr, and I’m sorry that I misjudged the resizing this time and made the pic smaller than what I usually do for my pics – the full view won’t give a lot away, unfortunately. >< Well, happy phoenix hunting everyone, and remember to look out for the feathery clouds in the sky for an air phoenix near you! ;) (OMG and can you believe it, it’s a short description!!!!!!!)

A hand-drawn Future Tale pin-up piece I did for fun, and knew it wouldn't be done justice in color unless Ivy Beth Gladstone handled it. She did a phenomonal job, I absolutely love how this turned out. The design of the guns Enigma's holding are a nod to Jack Kirby's "New Gods."

Live drawing of my girlfriend Elysia. At the time she was a bit tired, which actually makes this drawing more charming to me, because she looks really relaxed. Or bored. Probably the latter, seeing as modelling for a drawing is a rather painful business...

----------------
FEATURED CHARACTERS: Cal (left) and Taliana (right)

CREATOR: Me! *waves*

MEDIUMS: Prismacolour pencils (main subject matter in foreground), ink (black shadows, line art) and Paintshop Pro 5 (background and light effects)

------------------
Anyway, this is obviously the most complicated pic I’ve done in a LONG time – at least 95% of what you see here is hand drawn/coloured. My poor felt tip pens had virtually all the life sucked out of them… I literally had to keeping scratching at the paper with the tip in order to get any ink out. X___X Repeat ad infinitum. *Bah* It took 12 ½ hours just to shade the pic with ink, and I don’t recommend doing that if you want to keep a sane mind! @__@

Arr, and I'm well aware that the image has an uneven tilt to it which favours Cal more than Taliana. *Darn!!* I was hoping that after colouring it the tilt wouldn’t be as noticeable but it’s still there, as annoying as ever! *shakes fist* I look at it now, and I realise how I should have positioned Taliana – she should’ve been drawn *upside down*!!!!! Doh! Um, well, just try to ignore it. ^^; (I know I am. =P)

Lastly, in the hopefully near future, I’m hoping to make this pic into a print. It’s the first pic I’ve scanned in at 300 DPI resolution, making it a candidate for turning into a print… ^^;; I’ve still got a lot of house keeping matters to take care of before dealing with prints though, but I’ll let you all know when things are on the move. ^^
So, that ends my rambling for tonight! Take care everyone! B^)

One of three illustrations I did for my senior year's high school yearbook of the school mascot, the spartan.

This was the first and my favorite of the three. I realized that I had only seen one rendition of a female spartan at our school, even though most of the really progressively active students were women. So I had a go at it, how'd I do?

One of three illustrations I did for my senior year's high school yearbook of the school mascot, the spartan.

I decided that one of the three pieces should be in the style that the student body was used to seeing from me in things like my newspaper political cartoons, and this was the result. I've heard more than one person say they'd like to see it on a t-shirt...

One of three illustrations of my former high school's mascot, the spartan, for my senior year's yearbook. This one I was going for a minimalist approach, using a brush pen for just thick strokes that would convey the entire mascot image.

This was drawn for an Easter Sunday update on my web site. There were three easter eggs hidden on my web site, and if you found and clicked one you'd get a special goodie like a comic strip or game or something. I've been taking the easter rabbit illustration around to a few grade school appearances to a warm reception, so I decided it deserved a gallery placement.

Another try at a digital self portrait... not much of a story or thought process behind this piece, it just sort of happened. I like it, though. I'm still not sure why it's blue-purple...

I received two albums from my aunt in Tennessee by an unsigned band called The Royal Bangs (formerly the Suburban Urchins). I really dig their stuff, have kept in contact with them, and one day this visual just sort of popped into my head when listening to one of their discs. So here it is.

This is the cover for the second issue of Hilhilites, which has been so horribly delayed that I decided to post this image even though the issue isn't out yet. The cover story is "worldview of america," and so I went for a simplistic representation of that.
