I've been working on this in little 30 minute skips throughout the last week or so. This started as a sketch to try out the Clip Studio Paint program, and as usual turned into a reason to try out one thing or another. I spent the most time on trying to make an engaging background (based on a minecraft world I'm making right now, failsauce.)

So! Süni is the athletic gal on the left, and Sekhemwy is the dour gal on the right. Both of them are daughters of one of the other main characters of the story, Heiwa, who is the king of this particular desert city.

Süni is basically a computer genius to the level of being a superpower. She has an electronic, programmable tattoo that you aren't seeing in this picture because it's in sleep mode. When it isn't visible, it gathers in a dot on the back of her neck. It's a current project of hers she's trying to refine, but has to be careful not to mess with while she's at home because she lives in an area that's very antagonistic towards technology.

Sekhemwy is a sorcress in training -- a late bloomer of sorts. She has control over lime, stone sand grit, and glass made from a combination of the two. Her 'ushabti' form, Sekhmet (basically a sand construct), has a much more powerful and widesread control over the above elements. She has a very hot temper, and is quick to remind people of her position socially and the fact that she can easily kick your ass. She's a bureaucrats nightmare, and the source of many-the-apologies from both her dad and the cities vizier, Khenum.

Little preview. Still plugging away at the website as i can.

prepare for a long road of hitting your head against your desk and idolizing everyone around you and hating what you do. :rose: I've seen a lot of improvement in your stuff over the last year even. I know you don't update very often, but between updates there are jumps in your artistic ability for sure.

Are you still in school, btw? or did you graduate?

Yea i know im progressing, even if its slowly.. but thanks :) positive reinforcement really does goes a long way. Theres always a couple gems i make that i actually like :P; I dont know when I made it a habit, but I've always liked to look at people who are better than me, and making it some what of a mission to eventually be better than them. Its sort of like a personal challenge.

Oh and I'm a college graduate now :D, I'd like to go back to school at some point, but thats not looking like it will be anytime in the near future

Congrats on the graduation, man! I'm glad to see that you're still working hard at it, and I have faith with practice you'll totally be blowing the socks off everyone around you. Art progress is basically measured in years of drawing frustration, and you slowly learn from your mistakes. Then, one day, you notice you're a little bit better but you have entirely new goals on how you'd like to work. It's ongoing.

My best advice is to stick with it. I dont draw or doodle near as much as I did when I first started, and I can tell it's impeding my artistic growth. Because of personal issues, I tend to have long periods pof stagnation where I don't draw or attempt to even doodle. I'm in the middle of one right now, ongoing like 3 months at this point. It totally Sucks. :(

*laughs* AMG, totally Sekky & Süni. Sekky uses her princess position to leverage when she wants something, and Süni is so entirely "pffft, whatevs" that even most of the people involved in her countries' monarchy are like "oh, yeah, süni's like a human Quaalude."

There are times when I hate you for how talented you are. This is one of those times. I love everything about this image. You need to make this comic, bro. And I need to read it!

get to it, man! I wish they'd re-open one in DSM again. (although, the closer to x-mas it is the better the deals usually are? I feel like they always have some kind of sale going on. They mght even have a halloween sale, too.)

I really like the overall feel of this, particularly the colors. It's nice and vivid, which really makes me interested in learning more about the world here. I also find the characters in focus quite intriguing, especially the girl on the left. =>

Lovely work, overall!

thank you, Elegance!:rose:

I was trying to get the atmosphere to look right, and I think I kinda sorta got the color bleeds in the right places from the intense light(?).

Moar Rainbow colored things!
