      Cool Jade's Mega Art Restart

      Well I can't find my old art thread but I know all the links to the images were broken anyways, so (with permission from the mods) here is a new one. Anyways, this will work pretty much the same as the old one. Art related to lucid dreams, and art that isn't related to LD, art from school, and art that I do for my own benefit. I'm not going to exclude anything.

      I'm also going to have to upload some of the oldies from my original art thread. (Maybe with a few fixes here and there). And lots of new stuff, obviously. Until I get some more art worth posting, you guys can have this. I made it in a class based off one of my characters.

      Haha, that is such an awesome animation! The repeat 360 degree animation made me laugh. The character just looks so happy!

      I pick up a half-eaten copy of a book by Neil Gaiman, and decide this is all his fault.

      Mmmk I guess I really should explain who this is since I've drawn her twice in a row now. (Well, I actually didn't because that spinney hand picture was from awhile ago.)

      Raiah was a character I originally created for a Roleplay story with a friend. She isn't a Dream Character, though she has appeared in my dreams on a few occasions. I would usually just describe her as 'Robot Arm Girl' as to not confuse people and have to explain more than I would already have to. She was just a character that I created to... well be a character. And for some reason when I create characters I only create a couple but I go into way more detail than would ever be necessary for any comic or well any sane person really.

      So what is there to know about Raiah...? Well she likes food more than anyone in the world. She's a gamer and a game programmer, An EDM DJ, and a science nerd, particularly when it comes to outer space. She always had this personality trait of not caring about other people's flaws and just trying to like them for who they are. She tends to be very industrious and always wants to be doing something, and gets bored easily. Also, contrary to most characters that have robotic limbs, she doesn't get all angsty about them. This was sort of meant to be a play on the cliche that all characters like this have this complex of wanting to be fully human again. But Raiah has just accepted the state of her life and moved to enjoy and embrace her unique anatomy as part of her identity as a DJ and a warrior.

      I actually considered if I did a comic or story arc involving her where (by whatever means) she gets her real arm and legs back and hates having them, feeling like she lost a part of herself and is no longer super strong (basically a superhero) because of this.

      That and she's the only one crazy enough to strap Vernor rockets to her body and launch herself through the air swinging a 100 pound sledgehammer as a fighting style.



      The Groundplane/Background was super lazy on this one because it was art day with my friend. (He came over, we did the arts.) and I was in a rush to have it finished before he left.

      I think I introduced this character before, but here he is again. This is Alduir, and his psychic spirit, Ateria. I think the story of creating this character is about as simple as it gets. I just kind of made him up one day and realized that I really liked his character, particularly if he played off of Raiah. (Since the two were opposites in most ways. Raiah is more calculating and scientific, he is more spontaneous and intuitive. Raiah's abilities are mechanical, Al's are Mystical) But at the same time they seem to get along very well. I always figured they were different enough to learn from each other but similar enough to still understand one another.

      The story behind this picture is somewhat lucid dreaming related, I guess. Since a large part of Al's story takes place in a sort of dream world/alternate dimension. (Sadly the story is complex and interesting, and I don't want to spoil it for anybody in case I decide to publish it ever.) Al is really the only character other than my own persona that really has this defined aesthetic that I can associate him with. (Using the Indigo and the eye emblem).



      And before the shipping starts, Raiah is Lezzy and Al is Gay, and they both have partners. I don't know what it is with me creating homosexual OCs. I guess heterosexual relationships just really bore me.

      You never cease to amaze me with your art. Looks like you improved from the last time I saw your art too. Although, I may be wrong but...was Raiah blond before?

      Yea she was blonde before. (Technically she still is blonde because most of her family characters are.) I just say she dyed her hair red.

      I like the glowing of Ateria. You pulled off the "dark" light fantastically.

      Spoiler for A cheat for the background, if you'd like to hear it?:
      If you're using Photoshop, have you tried the Edit>Transform>Perspective tool to cheat at the backgrounds? Put down a texture, change perspective, add a dark gradient going most of the way to the ground, boom. Relatively convincing-looking background,
      if you feel like playing with it a bit!

      Considering last nights dream crossed Star Wars and Gurren Laggan, I don't think that's far fetched at all.

      Raiah reminded me of a manga I once started to read but never finished (well, not Raiah herself, but the hammer and robotics).
      Found it. It is "battle angel alita".

      That bit apart, great works.

      Dear artists, if you ever want to feel frustrated, attempt a pose like this.

      I wanted to draw Manei (mah dream guide) ever since I came back to the site. This took way too long and gave me way too many grey hairs. Illustrator hasn't been to friendly to me with it either, what with all the crashing and what not. I think I did her with the torch dancing once before. (Isn't that a real thing in Hawaii? I don't know as much about the pacific and the cultures that live there, I have to look it up now.) In the dream world it was supposedly something unique to her culture. It is also something that I want to participate in very badly.

      No more realistic style drawings for a little while. They're fun but they take a lot out of me. I need to come up with a simple cartoon/chibi/anime style

      I also doodled this in my spare time. I don't remember where I got the idea but I wanted to make a sword that folded up like this, and made the hilt and handle fit into Manei's gold and red motif.

      Wow that is one intense pose. Also, great job on the art work and designs. ^^ I know you did one of her with a torch before. Hm..Have you never seen "lilo and stitch" as a kid?They had a scene with torches. I also knew about the torch thing because of other shows too though.

      A bit simpler than my usual style, but I've been sick but I had a lot of free time, but not necessarily a lot of energy. Really this is an art test for future works...

      Good job! I like it Can't wait to see those future works you speak of.

      You're not going to master the rest of your life in one day. Just relax. Master the day. Then just keep doing that every day.

      I was supposed to be working on a take-home test today. Instead my brain said: Let's build the back half of our own version of the Hermes in LDD. I'd say there's about a 10% chance I'll go back to this and a 5% chance I'll actually finish it...

      Art day with S agian. (We actually spent most of the day playing Minecraft.) I had to do the shading a few times over. Not because it was wrong, but because illustrator keeps crashing for no reason. So frustrating.

      Perspective is hard...

      So I've been messing around on my drawing tablet more and more. Usually I use Illustrator but I want to broaden my horizon a bit. Really I think it's just a matter of practice and putting in the time to clean up my linework, but critique is always welcome.

      (What I'm considering doing in my next sketch is to draw a sketchy layer to set up proportions then draw a clean layer over it, then erase the sketchy layer.)



      From DYD a few days ago now.



      Jet propulsion flying. The only dream-ability I can say I've outright mastered. The fire jets vary in appearance a little bit. Sometimes they're like an actual flame, other's they're like a bunsen burner or blowtorch with a small, compressed flame. (Sometimes they don't appear at all.) Either way they look cool.



      The Dreamcatcher Shield. The ability I have used only once before and am planning on mastering. Maybe make it a goal when spell's summer comp starts up.

      I was going to do two drawings today, but Photoshop crashed as I was REACHING TO CLICK 'SAVE' on the first one. (Seriously did I like kick an orphan puppy in a past life or something to deserve that?)

      So now all you get is Cafe and crew... DC11, I'm so sorry about Eye and the sammich. I just needed a pick-me-up after the aforementioned crash. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.

      Its amazing to me the drop in quality between my illustrator drawings and my Photoshop tablet drawings. But practicing on the tablet has given me something to do around here while waiting around for my lucid dreaming potency to not be total poopy.

      Samurai Jack! :3 Nice choice. I was actually wondering recently when the show was coming back since its been a while since they announced it.Also, I can see the change but using a tablet in the beginning is kind of hard.
