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.
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.
Here is my progress for our latest item on the long commission list, Cyber End Dragon. Progress on this cutie has been slowed down quite a bit. Finding a place for Antigone and I to live, as well as the transmission on our car completely going out, having a con to go to mid march, no hotel booked, no way to get there. =/
Anyways, as far as the piece itself goes. I wanted to make her have the Grand and epic feeling that Antigone gave Ancient Gear Dragon, and Malefic Stardust Dragon. At the same time, with my wandering, and yearning for a deeper experience the way it has been lately, I truly felt the need to provide a deeper and more artsy touch to this piece… However, understanding that this wasn’t exactly what my commissioner might be expecting is important as a business. So! I did the usual. Two pieces that are slightly altered. The first piece matches what I feel my client asked for and will enjoy. The second piece is my “director’s cut” Aka, the piece I felt had the artistic message that I wanted to send. I’m not sure how you all will like the second one to be honest. But it was sorta my guilty pleasure anyways. But, feel free to let me know. It has a message in it, maybe, just as how I analyzed the feature friday piece, you too will find deeper meaning and enlightenment by observing it! Also as a random side note, it’s the same girl as the one from one of my previous pieces, Cyber Dragon.
I’ll keep you all updated as frequently as possible on my progress. For those of you who have paid and are on the commission list, Antigone and I are striving to complete our work and get to yours in as timely of a manner as possible. Rest assured, we will get to yours and will put our hearts and soul into it just as we do every piece.
Hello there everyone~! I hope you all are doing well these days. Recently, Antigone and I got back from Kami-Con 2013, and while it was a profitable venture for us both, it was easily one of the most trying experiences of our career. I won’t go into too much detail, (considering I have lingered on this topic for far too long now) But for those of you who didn’t know, feel free to read my full experience of the convention that I wrote a few days ago.
Thankfully, Antigone and I have been graced with some truly amazing friends and supporters. After writing this, I think our inboxes got flooded with letters of concern, sympathy, and love. The love and support that we received meant the world to us, but even so, pain still lingers and the healing process is an ongoing thing.
I felt like because of all this, now would be a good time to put into motion an idea I’ve had for a long time now. “Feature Friday” a day where I feature something that truly inspires me to create and/or better myself in some particular way, and share it with everyone. Continue reading →
Kami-Con was our first convention a year ago, and really marked the beginning of Antigone’s and my Career as professional artist. Back in 2012, our journey to Tuscaloosa in AL, allowed us to meet life long friends, and gave us the confidence that we needed to make our business a real legitimate thing. Continue reading →
I’m a fucking professional artist. And nobody forget it~!
XD I had a lot of fun with this one. Took my time, and just went with it~! This new illustration was my first attempt at a brand new paint style. *gasp*! No lines~! Well, I’m trying to become more of a painter. Painting is where my roots as well as my background, as well as my brain in art all lie. So, I figure I should refine my style so that it suits ME and MY strengths, not everyone else’s expectations and preconceived notions.
As for the piece itself? Tourguide is a little cutie~! Again, I absolutely enjoyed playing with her body and giving her a lovely more full figure. Add an an alluring TourBed to taste, and you’ve got yourself a Fun night~
Yep. It’s been requested over a billion times. Everyone clawed at us wildly, not so patiently waiting for the day that Faerie’s Dice would finally create this one. And FINALLY! For the first time EVAR… the opportunity as arrived, thankfully someone has been kind enough to commission her!
Here is a progress sketch of Tour Guide to the Underworld. She will have a pantie and pantieless version when finished.
Thanks so much to our commissioner for being so patient this one! I do hope you enjoy the direction that I’m going with her~! And just so you know, this is just a rough sketch. The Final rendering will look much cleaner and better.
