Fairy Tales

by skylarke
Forced to move to a new town, 15-year-old Kiki Manders has been given a much-needed chance to start her life over. However, that's not so easy when your family thinks you're crazy. Kiki's certainly does, and maybe they're right. After all, her best friend is a fairy that nobody else can see. And that's the LEAST of her worries.

Family trauma, high school drama, and the paranormal; Kiki's life may not be easy, but at least it's never dull.

Ooh, things are getting so interesting! Love the expressions in this page, the posing, and the layout too, it's all gorgeous.

Finally!
Hi guys! Long time no see. I just want to reiterate how grateful I am that you're all so patient. We all want more updates, but we artists are only human, I'm afraid.

A large part of what took this particular page so long is that I had to focus on another project; a 8-page penciling submission for Dark Horse Comics. It was a great experience and I've learned a lot. I was able to take it to Rose City Comicon prior to sending it in for review, and got some great and useful feedback. :) I'll be working on another submission soon, this time from my own script (which is a WIP at the moment).

After that, I was summoned for jury duty and chosen. This oh-so-special jury lasts for weeks and will, as you can imagine, significantly decrease both my free time and mental energy for working on Fairy Tales. This will, unfortunately affect future page releases, but I will try to keep that to a minimum as best I can.

Oh, and then the pen of my tablet broke. I fixed it, it broke again a week later, I fixed it AGAIN, and 2 weeks later it was broken for good. I bought a replacement, but suffered from art withdrawals waiting for it to arrive. BUT, with luck, I will be good on the tech side for a while. -crosses fingers-

These aren't excuses, but rather simply to help you understand what's going on. You all probably don't even care so long as you eventually get your pages. XD

So again, thank you for your patience, understanding and continued support. It means the world to me. <3

Soooo happy to see another page!! :D And it’s excellente! I really love the way the scenery and characters frame Kiki in that top panel, and the transitions in expression and posture as Kiki looks to the number. The excitement builds for what's to come!

It's been waaay too long since we last updated. Unfortunately, the new pages will have to be sporadic for a little while longer. I'll try my best to keep them coming, but it won't be consistent I'm afraid.

Erin is not amused by your sass, silly boy.

Pages 26 and 42 from Chapter One got a makeover. Check 'em out!

So this explains what happened to her. Now, why was that... thing there? Did someone summon it or something?

Did she get beat up or something?

O_O Either Chelsea's really short, or Kiki is really tall. Either way, we know who won this round XP

Those heels just scream "Chelsea" or her cronies (hasn't been established that she has any, but it's just mean girl 101 XD)
