Well I finished. Took around two weeks to finish this piece. But I finished it. Honestly, Been depressed lately. Doing beautiful work while carrying these feelings is rough. Simply having the motivation to even try lately… honestly.
Thank you all for being patient and continuing to follow us and support us. I’ll pick up the pace, and jump on to the next one now.
Took me a little bit. Was working on this one at the same time that I was duoing our entry for the Magic Knight contest. Anyways, I hope she turned out okay!
This is an original Character commissioned from a friend of mine’s up and coming Comic. XP His original character’s name is Betty, and she has Ice powers! I wasn’t told much else about her, but I was given a picture of her. Her outfit was quite a bit different from what you are seeing here. It was a little more casual and conservative. XP So I decided to play around and have some fun pushing her outfit’s design!
So yeah! Had a lot of fun with this one. If you like this and want the same awesomeness for your own OC, know that right now we JUST opened our commissions back up and are running a special right now. With each Fully rendered Original Character commission that you order, you get a free complex BG to go with it! Were trying to do more original/high art for our portfolio. So yeah check out our new commission infos…
Today I wanted to talk about a rarely discussed issue that is near and dear to my heart. Many will look at the title of this article and scoff, but this attitude is precisely the problem with the more commonly discussed issue of feminism and the sexualization of women in modern media.
So sorry that this one has taken me so long to complete. Cons, car repairs, and other life related things got in the way. Lately I’ve been trying to push that “Painted” feel. I hope it’s coming across okay!
As for the piece itself, I wanted to do something more original and conceptual, something with more artistic merit than a more simple appeal. It’s sorta the direction we wanna take Faerie’s Dice in, artwork that appeals to the higher level of the senses, but still is distinctly “us” and what we enjoy doing. There are two versions of this piece, the top version is the version closer to what my commissioner asked for. The second version, is completely my own deviation, is is meant to be taken in far more of a serious light.
As for the second piece, if I were to give it a name, I would name it “Against Birth”
Again, I will straight up tell you, the second piece was made to be taken in a more serious and artistic light. I understand that many might not be able to fully appreciate it’s essence, and for those of you who feel the second is a bit too difficult to do so with, I hope you at least enjoy the first version.
Lately Antigone and I have been going full throttle on our commissions and really working hard. Our style has slowly been changing to a more painterly and Illustrative style, so each piece takes a bit more time to complete than when we first began Faerie’s Dice. The first piece up top is my own progress on a commission of Cyber End Dragon. Yes, do not worry, there is an armored version with a non rounded belly. With this one I really felt the urge to explore a conceptual and artsy design. I understand for many the depth I’m trying to convey will be lost, but either way I have enjoyed it’s creation so far.
The second piece is a commission of Elemental Hero Escuridao, being worked on by Antigone. I love the approach she is taking so far with the shape of the figure, as well as the armored bits. I can’t wait to see the facial expression, as well as the color pallet that she chooses.
