Soft, your work is amazing. And I agree with the others: You draw a lot! And that's a great thing. Keep on doing that. I'm trying to do the same as well. Your coloring and characters are really good as well.

The only thing I can say is work on more poses. Let the characters do something more dramatic in their poses.

But other than that, keep up the beautiful work.

Oh wow, thank you so much! ^_^

Well...here's the thing - you're absolutely right on those poses. I have a few sketches I need to upload to that effect, and more that I want to finish.

But I wanted to hop on and say the reason I jumped off for a minute (and haven't finished said sketches) is that I've hit some health issues that are...not working out too well for me at the moment. I wanted to put that here so anyone would know why I'm like "you're right!" and then immediately after, the sketches I put up are head/face or busts and similar because I just do faces more easily so when I feel sick it's just a matter of picking up the pencil most days (plus more redesigns I'm fiddling with). I haven't been able to work on my actual comic pages either and it's driving me nuts.

But I finally have insurance and a good (so far) doctor helping me out, so for the first time in a while I hope I'll be back to normal/more well than I've ever been.

OK. SO.

So this is Ira's mother Len. He hasn't seen her since he was a year old, so you officially now know more about what she looks like than he does. She's a fairy who is well beloved in her homeland, though "feared" also mixes in there a bit... She gave up Ira for reasons that are spoilery. :D This is a redesign from an old picture, so now her face looks less like a traffic cone and more like a head. Even if I sketched this one pretty quickly.

Image
I had a picture of this dork on my old thread but so far the only one I've uploaded here is below/in spoiler. His name is Bella Luna, and as stated before he owns a nightclub in an old old OLD building that comes in handy for Ira later in my comic's story. He's also Hana and her brother's godfather. As a person, Bella is very guarded and uses the nightclub as a way to be around the types of people he likes in a way that he can control, since he likes people who can get out of control very quickly.

Kakeru's best friend (and initially his chief enabler) is a nightclub owner who calls himself Bella Luna, or just Bella. After a while, the two are extremely close and Bella is one of the main causes Kakeru's life shifts completely.
(Bella's another loaner I've worked my butt off on for Pagan.)


Image
This is Harris "Bun" Johansen. Though I have plans for her at 19, she actually appears in the comic I'm currently trying to work on as a kid. Her face always seems more thin than most of my characters (though I'm not sure if it's true or if I just think that way), with a longer nose, so I wanted to draw out her profile.

Image
Here's Hana (from a page back) wearing sort-of an outfit I saw browsing the fashion tag on tumblr. It's cute enough for her, I think. XD
I'm trying. :)

I'm participating in sketchvember, but I haven't posted anything here just yet (I keep falling behind just on facebook...) but I've got more.

This one's not so sketchy, but it IS the first thing I've inked in over a year, if not two. I can't remember, lol. Anyway, here's Ira, Alice, and Duke.

So since my tablet is working with me for once, I thought I could practice some inking again...after a couple years.
So I finished an older sketch:

Before:

This is Alessa Jager. She's a combat medic in a world that was caught between an intergalactic war and promptly forgotten. Alessa was born with a discoloration to her skin, something that affects part of the populace following the war and can have varying symptoms. The change from the initial sketch was mostly because something with her design didn't click with me. The second to third was mostly me getting used to drawing/coloring her face.
I'm trying. :)

Ahhhh I'm so bad about getting stuff here.

This one is another sketch, but it's a color/design change I'm thinking for Ira. His main colors have been blue/green, then red, and now I'm thinking more of a purple slant. I loved how the coat came out here, soooo...

Oh hey I can post things again, haha.

...I gotta WIP of page 1. Trying to figure out what art program I actually want to use and getting used to inking on my new computer (uses Windows Ink on a touch screen - it's pretty awesome lol).

Scribbles on buildings are placeholders. :D
