Got a chance to do some sketching over the last few days and posted a collage of what I produced here.

Kamiko Sketches
Over the last few days I've been playing with some designs for Kamiko. Mostly this has stemmed from trying to design a sakura blossom styled lolita dress. I played with color to try and make the dress pink like a sakura blossom, but at the same time keeping everything else a dark color. I don't really think it's successful. I tried to use the complement of the pink, although I turned it a darker blue. I'll have to go look at some more color theory to see if I can't harmonize those better. If you have some ideas, I'd be up for hearing them. Otherwise I sketched several designs of a dress inspired off sakura blossoms. 

I learned a bit of least enough to understand some words but not enough to really say it. Everything sounds sexier in french, right? :)

Some other artwork of Kamiko:

I started drawing sketches of Keiko just for the hell of it, and decided I'd try and turn it into something a little more. Here's the original sketches. I didn't use them all:

It was also based on this other image I did a few weeks back:

Some of the portraits for the character designs I did a few years back:

They're my fan characters based on the world of Maria-sama ga Miteru (season 1). Just something for fun. I have much more of an extensive story written for the characters sitting on my harddrive -- I finished writing their story for NaNoWriMo two years ago. I was thinking if I could remove them from Marimite, and with this comic I almost did. I experimented with different uniforms, but it felt disrespectful of the characters. If they were born to be a fan-thing then it should remain that way.

All of this was done using my Surface Pro 3 and Manga Studio 5. Probably took something like 30+ hours. 

Feel free to download and share where you please. Leave a comment if you like it or just to say hello.

I invented these characters a long time ago, and I felt like doing something more with them. Here are some of the original bits of artwork with them.

Update: Thanks :iconquamp: for the feedback on the placement of the bubbles. It bugged me too that they were over the characters, but i felt i had to keep them closer to make the conversation read better, but let's try this and see how it works...
I pulled this from the journal of someone who stopped by my dA. I've always wanted to do a feature, so I figured I'd try this for a first one. :) I found this on :iconspunkycatgirl: so that's why she's first. Comment below if you want your artwork added and we'll go up to 20.

 For each of the first 20 people answering this journal, I will put their avatar,  3 deviations and what I like most about them! Also I love of you that I feature have most definitely inspired me in some way to keep drawing and try new things!!
If you answer, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (me) on the first place~!

I like the movement of the dachshund in that first picture as he's leaping in the air. I like the ghost girl and the twins' simple and cute look and great twintails on the ghost girl, they're springy.

You're welcome, I thought it would be the easiest way to keep track of your future Avenger/Gothom/Justice League animals. :)
ShadOBabe Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Awesome!! I hope you enjoy the future entries.
My I ask what your favorite DC/Marvel character are, out of curiosity?
AlbinoGrimby Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I never read the comics, but I loved the cartoons and movies. X-Men and Spiderman are my favorite Marvel series, and so Peter Parker, Charles Xavier, and Magneto. I liked First Class since it was an origin story for the X-Men and I always like that relationship where they both agreed on the same ideals but went about them in diametrically opposed ways. 

Iron Man is another one of my favorites, mainly cause I like RDJ's portrayal of Stark. 

As for DC, I'm only really familiar with Batman and Superman, but I prefer the Dark Knight himself. I also liked Batman Beyond, but I don't know if that's considered proper Batman canon. It was a really great take on a student/mentor relationship and old, gruff Batman was just really rad.
