So, I put out a journal a little while ago asking about whether people were interested in seeing my thumbnail notebook.

Who wants to see my Thumbnails notebook?See, a while back I was at my local art supply wholesale, and I grabbed a little... 3"x6", I think? Notebook. For thumbnails. Just little scraps of drawing that you usually do just to get a better idea of how you'll make it turn out on a full-size drawing.
Of course I've been abusing that instead to just make quick drawings and not-so-quick ones in a small space. I've already filled 87 pages of one. The quality varies, and I've got a policy of "don't go back to fix it unless you really want to" for this notebook. Some of these pictures are more complex than they have any right to be, because I felt like spending more time on a picture, or I wanted to practice something like cross-hatching. On the other hand, because of the lack of time and attention, skeletons weren't drawn correctly, so proportions go out the window constantly and it's a dice roll whether anything actually looks like it should.
So I was wondering... does anyone want to see them? Because there's a lot of 'em, and quali


TL;DR version, I have like ninety little drawings in it, and I wanted to know whether I should post them all, post the notable ones, or not post anything unless it's a really big deal. Or nothing at all, I guess. Because you, my Watchers, are the ones who have to deal with the influx of notifications, and the several-times-larger art backlog.

Nobody's commented on that at all, and I was wondering if people just hadn't noticed, or didn't have the time to read it, or didn't really care to speak up, so I wanted to follow up on it. This notebook contains a few original character designs that haven't appeared in the full-size notebooks, and some of the ones in them were designed in the smaller thumbnail book.

If nobody responds to this, either, I'll just take it to mean that nobody particularly cares, and I'll do whatever. Which will probably mean posting the notable ones, because uploading them all would be a chore and I don't feel like putting in the work for something that doesn't interest anyone. Or maybe I'll put them in Scraps, just for the sake of completion.

Anyway, what do you think? Please leave a comment.

Stride - Early Color Demo
See, this is what it really looked like during that stage. I was trying to get all the colors down so I wouldn't have to worry about adjusting them after I'd already gotten everything within the lines. Ordinarily, I'd have created another layer with the linework instead of making the original drawing transparent. So that's why the colors are all muted here.

I thought it looked kinda neat, anyway.

Hikari belongs to :iconmanga1357:.


Though, also, I was having some trouble with the color palette, since between the two references I'm using, I've got one that shows the whole body, and another that has color. And the one without color gives her gloves, to add to the confusion. So I took my best guesses based on the existing colors and your cross-hatching on the other picture. All I could figure was that the boots had a red lining on the tongue, and the pants were darker than the shirt.

Guys Im A Rly Gud Artist I Swear

im rly gud


...Okay, I was just goofing around while coloring this in, because it looks silly without the linework. Might just move this to Scraps tomorrow so it doesn't stay in my main gallery.

But just so you can't ignore it that easily, :iconmanga1357:, now it's in your mentions. ...Hope I didn't offend you by doing something this dumb with your character, though.

So! I participated in a little Secret Santa thing a while back. This is kind of half a year late, but I ended up having way too much trouble working on it back then, and I figure it's better to put it up late than never bother with it. I hate giving up on things like this.

In fact, I kinda debated whether or not to put this up now. My plan WAS to post it, then edit the recipient into the description so they wouldn't immediately receive a notification about it, and then they would get the full surprise with a completed version instead. I decided this was entirely too complicated and should I require even MORE time to work on it, it might end up so late that I'll have to retire.

Anyway, yeah, that means I'll be making a full-color version digitally. It'll be a little different from this one, because I have a very specific plan for it.


Now about the picture itself. Front and center is the OC of our recipient, Hikari (KHIII attire). I thought I'd have her running with Donald, Goofy, and Sora. (Also snuck in Al, Rex, and Vita in the background, because I thought it would be fun.) Sora is kind of mostly off the screen because A: I felt like he would be the furthest ahead, followed by Goofy, then Hikari, then Donald trailing behind, B: Sora is a nightmare for me to draw, and C: I'm not familiar enough with his KHIII attire to draw it as a background detail. Also he'll just be a silhouette in the colored version WAIT I JUST SPOILED THAT NO


Anyway, sorry for the wait, hope you like it, :iconmanga1357:.

The Four Heroes of Light
As you can see, I spent a little time working on my previous submission. And I have learned that I need to start using pens, because drawings like this are insane with a pencil, and they'll wear away quickly. Good to know. Anyway, what I've done is basically just add little bits of shading and detail to everyone, like I'd done to Vita's arm. I spent several hours on Rex's dark armor. Unfortunately, this also means I didn't really address problems with the art itself.


Here you have our party! From left to right they are: Rexial, Rekoka, Vita, and Aleri. Slightly altered basic designs under the outfits, but they're still easily recognizable.

Rexial is a Dark Knight, with the design from Final Fantasy III. Wields powerful Dark Swords and can expend life to hit harder or blast multiple enemies. Seemed like the most fitting job class for him, to be honest. It suits his edgy, tends-to-bring-misery-down-on-his-own-head nature. Funny thing is, Dark Knights tend to live short lives, either because of the dangerous nature of their fighting style, or because their powers drain their lifespans and bring them closer to death with each swing. Rex is too stubborn to be killed by that.

Rekoka is a Spell Fencer, from Bravely Default. It's basically the same as the Mystic Knight from Final Fantasy V, but the design was taken from BD. Can imbue her swords with magic to deal elemental damage or inflict status effects. I'm considering letting her have that ability, actually. Potential cultural appropriation aside, it's in-character for Rekoka to deliberately choose a class with an outfit like that. Elegance is what gives her life.

Vita is a Black Belt, Final Fantasy III-design. The natural upgrade to the Monk, they have the greatest vitality of any class, and their fists are deadly weapons. The drawback being that you only obtain this just before the final dungeon, so if you want to use it, be prepared to grind Job Levels to make it feasible. Which is kind of like Vita, since she arrived on the scene just prior to X-Sigma, and was unable to help fight that day. But with training, she became strong enough to rival the others and then some.

Aleri is a Paladin or Holy Knight. It's the obvious contrast to Rexial's Dark Knight, and he's sporting essentially a refined version of his outfit from the original event picture. Paladins have excellent strength and defense, can use heavy weapons and armor, cast low-level healing magic, and can take hits for weakened allies. While Al can normally do healing and melee fighting, he tends to focus on using spells to attack and box enemies in, controlling the field of battle.


I find it kind of funny that this whole party is basically just made for attacking. There's a Paladin's defensive and healing abilities, but that's all they've got to work with for survival.

In case you're wondering, the username is something I used on a forum in middle school. I've thought about using a different one, but I decided that I'm too fickle to do that. I'd probably change names every couple of months if I changed it now.

I live on the East Coast, USA. I don't use particularly refined tools, so while I can't exactly make drawings with the kind of finish that digital artists or more driven folks can pull off, I can still make stand-out pieces.

While I specialize in Traditional Art, I actually have a basic level of Spriting skills. I forget, but it may have been my spriting that got me into drawing, to a degree. I have once or twice been called the God of Microsoft Paint for making a couple of pieces from scratch in that program. Let that one sink in, though: Microsoft Paint. Not fun.

I generally don't take commissions; I take requests. If you want something done, and done by a particular deadline, then I'll do the commission, but otherwise, just make a request. I don't get enough of those, seriously. It's not a matter of popularity for me, but being able to bring ideas to life, and having fun. I got into drawing to give my ideas a visual shape. And it's pretty fun to try my hand at portraying something that another person dreamt up! I've done a good job of it in the past, or so I'm told.

Be forewarned, by default, I draw things without coloring them.

If I come across as intimidating, my bad. My profile picture looks older than I really am. Can't seem to draw a good self-portrait... Anyway, I'd really love to get some requests. Indulge me?

Actually, come to think of it, you do art trades, don't you? Why don't we do a trade? Not that you have to, but if you want some practice...
