Saffron - contemplation by DreamworldStudio Saffron - contemplation by DreamworldStudio
Portrait of my character Saffron...had been forever since I'd drawn him, especially in colour...too bad this was done over a year ago ;__; I'd just about started to get back into my groove, getting out of the funk I was in after losing my job with Tokyopop and Harper Collins with the cancellation of the series I was working on ;_;

But yea...still so love him and miss working with him ;_;

Done with pen and ink, Copics and white acrylic highlights

am certainly working on it, given that MOST of the story is plotted/summarized, it's just a matter of developing the ending and all...wrote the summary MANY years ago but plum forgot to write the ending and it stops right at a pivotal point in the story too! LOL XD but yea, it's certainly something I've in the works and definitely want to see print soon ^_^

Oh yes, I so had wished Tokyopop would have picked this series up, but I'm sure it went past the 3 book limit ^^; *EPIC TALE

Oh, and btw, Yen Press seems to have a preference for an art style like your's, so I have to say the Happy Gilmore quote: "It's your HOME, don't your want to go to your HOME??"

So even a simple Artists' submission of your past portfolio/current portfolio work could land you with the novel-to-graphic novel bit they are doing lately? (and be less time consuming and stressful for you ;_:)

anyways, I have excite for you<3
Kick butt!

Indeedindeed! I had thought about submitting AL to TP way back when, but knew about the split copyright ownership and soooooooooo didn't want them to get their hands on AL or any other orig characters that I hold far more dear than MCL...so yea, that's why I didn't submit it and why I chose MCL instead...that and I wanted to work on something far simpler to start with as well XD;;;

Interesting! I shall have to definitely look further into Yen Press then, especially with the amount of work I have and all, I should hopefully have no prob getting some sort of work XD...and of course I do want to submit my own orig work sometime as soon as I've got the pitch all together and stuff XD;;

Thanks dear! ^_^<3

Good luck! I believe your past publications should rally in your favor, as well!

Let me know if you need anything XD <3

Holy Frick. This is so marvelous. Design, coloring, expression...mind blowing. He looks so cool too!

Do you mind telling me where you put your acrylic highlights? were the copic markers insufficient?

Just gorgeous! So much detail, and I love the color scheme!

I feel your job pain :hug: I've been out of work for a little over a year and it's hard not to get down in the dumps.

Gawgeous! It's so good to see Saffron again, even if this is technically and older piece. :heart:
Aah, I just love how you've done Saff's hair in this one. It looks so free and silky.

Oh believe me! I LOVED every minute of creating this piece! ^_____^<3 SO love working with him and really REALLY should just bite the bullet and work on his story, no matter how corny it often times seems to me! LOL XD...though in typing up what story summary I had already written down, many parts weren't so corny...though, apparently I neglected to write the ending waaaaaaaaaaay back when I had originally written the summary O_O;;; if that makes ANY sense whatsoever! XD LOL I'll have to sit down and brainstorm an ending O_O;;;...it just ends at a crucial part and for the life of me I can't remember how it ends O_O;;; but thankfully a GREAT BIG chunk of it was written, so I could easily start working on it now and just wait till I'm half way thru to finish the ending for it XD;;;

Thanks muchly my dear! ^_^ I do believe I've gotten FAR better at rendering his hair than oh so long ago...really also need to scan in the Vondros inks I have that I eventually want to colour >.>;;;

I wholeheartedly agree! You should totally bite the bullet and jump into your comic/s! And hey, there's nothing wrong with a bit of corniness. :heart: And since you've got the whole thing plotted out, figuring out the ending should be easy~
(And oohh, I do love me some Vondros--It'd be great to see him again!)

You can do it!! :la:

It's a shame they cancelled it. Maybe try promoting it online with a few chapters before trying to sell it elsewhere so people are more interested in it. That's how a few people I know managed to get their work popular again.

HA! okay...disregard my other reply XD;;;...TOTALLY forgot what I had even written in my description and what you were referring to as far as cancelled series was concerned...

The series I was on while working for both Tokyopop AND Harper Collins was a completely different series and wasn't even my property, I just did all the artwork for it :P...so yea, I don't own ANY of the rights and therefore STILL can't put it on the net for peeps to read or see XD;;;

That's the thing though, I CAN'T sell it anywhere as Tokyopop still holds part of the copyright and thusly keeps me from bringing it to another company....that and I've gotten to the point where I'm just going to move on to another project and have come to terms that MCL is just done for now ^_^;;; it's not always a good thing to go back to the past to redo things...and I'm taking it as a sign that it's time to move on to bigger and better things...and that those bigger and better things are waiting for me XD
