Another collaboration between Antigone and myself. ^^ She did the original sketch, and I did everything else. This collab is a commission that is going to be turned into a double wide deck box.. but this one will be different. it’s actually going to be a clear partially see-through deck box, made from plastic. Our commissioner paid us a little extra so that we could make this happen for him. =o Honestly~ I think I might make one for myself! I really like this image.
I decided to name her Runa~ I’ve decided that she is Dark magician Girl’s daughter. XP I kinda took her name from DMG’s Since DMG’s name is Mana, Runa seemed like an appropriate name. Isn’t she cute? She got all of the cute sqishy sexyiness that her mother had.~ <3 XP
What started off as a commission for me to edit my first ever piece of Dark Magician fanart, the very first piece that I ever did for Faerie’s Dice,
Turned into a completely new drawing! I haven’t been this happy and this excited to do artwork as I have doing this piece! I completely got obsessed with it, and really forgot for a moment that for me, this is my job, this is my work.
When I first completed the Original DMG, I was so down on myself. I knew that I didn’t do my best work, and even felt a little embarrassed and self conscience about my work. But now, I feel great, and feel that I made more than just a few improvements to her original design! I’ve learned so much since I first started Faerie’s Dice with Antigone. And I can’t wait to see where I end up after another year~!
There is a nude version, and a clothed version, as you can see. Both will be printed into gamemats and Orica cards, as well as posters, and even prints~! Oh… And deck sleeves and deck boxes too~! XP So much stuff! I’m just deciding which version of her I want for my brand new game mat! Clothed… Or unclothed? Hmmm… I’m leaning towards… Unclothed~! Hell yes~!
I’m sure many of you might be sick of seeing these two by now, but just in case you aren’t! Here is the final version of both mystic Elf and Aqua spirit together! I was commissioned to do this, so I do hope it turned out well! I tried to take elements from each of their backgrounds, and combine them into one scene. I kinda think it turned out okay. =)
This image will be crafted into one of our Yugioh OriCa cards, however! It will be the first completely original card. It’s going to be a special magic card, with a unique effect!
Hey there everyone. Here is some progress on my latest Yu-Gi-Oh Orica Commission. Honestly, I really don’t have much to say about these. I was really excited to do these at first, as these two cards and what they symbolize mean so much to me. But to be honest, lately I have felt just terrible. I’ve been criticized a lot, for just doing what I love doing. I try not to bother anyone or hurt anyone’s feelings with my art, I just do it because I love it. But constantly I get criticized and hated every now and then. It always hurts though when a family member is the one to bring fire. Honestly, it hurt. Badly. I’ve been afraid to do any work or really post anything at all. I love what I do, and I love what I am. I have no doubts about what I am doing, nor any doubts about my moral and spiritual compass. But others do about me. Knowing there is family behind my back, secretly talking about me and that are ashamed and disgusted at who I am, what I am all about, and what I love to do. It makes me uneasy and afraid to do anything. For the past few days, I truly haven’t been living. I’ve just been miserable, frustrated, and afraid. It’s times like these that I need the goddess to help guide me. And even so, It makes me even more afraid to know that I put myself in even more danger just by saying the word “Goddess”. The powerful spirit that I believe in, that I understand, that I learn from, was born from, and that guides me, is so hated…
Hello everyone! Just a small update with my latest Yu-Gi-oh OriCa card commission! I went ahead and did the Line art for both of them! Now that they are nice and clean, I am going to proceed with the base colors, and then the painting process. =)
Also! please excuse any sluggish progress. Currently were preparing for our next Anime convention, UltimaCon!
This convention is all the way out in New Orleans! So it’s going to be quite the drive for us. Around 7 Hours! We have been (yet again) scrambling to make sure that we are well prepared with a large inventory of products/prints to sell at our Artist Table. =) Wish us luck! As it will be quite the experience for both of us! The convention btw, is taking place right in the French Quarter. Pretty sweet!
She’s Finally finishedddd!! This card has been delayed so many times due to personal life issues that Antigone and I have been having. (Mainly car trouble!!) But through all of the hell, we finally finished her.
I for one, am extremely proud. When we started off on this drawing, Antigone had a hard time with the design, and got a bit discouraged.
I mean who wouldn’t? The design of the original card completely sucks…
I could rant for days on how terrible the original card illustration is, everything from the colors, to the overall design makes me wanna bordem induce vomit.
We had to somehow take that design, and make it into something sexy and worth looking at.
And we did. The sketch started off pretty iffy and rough, but once we got down to the color pallete, I think Antigone and i both started to see this one come together. I am so happy that we could both see this illustration through to completion.
I thank our client so much! He was super patient and has been a huge support to Faerie’s Dice! Not only that, but he constantly is pushing our design abilities by giving us challenging and fun projects to work on for him. he is truly the best!
Thanks everyone for supporting us! We hope you like our Yu-Gi-Oh OriCa card design for No. 32 Marine Biting Shark Drake!
Look forward for this card, Snyffus, and Foxfire to all appear in our online store!
Here is the third set of our newest commission project! (Snyffus, and Fox Fire were the other part) So after many days of the sketch sitting on my flashdrive and having to deal with crap tons of personal bullshit getting in the way of art, the Shark Drake sketch is done! ;w; Today was yet another long day so I will be taking a break and linearting this tomorrow after work and then handing it off to Bryan to color being that this is another collaboration of ours! :3
