Done for a little meme going ‘round facebook, where folks post flower pictures to break up the negativity on timelines around the world.  I was assigned the flower Osteospermum /African Daisy.  

Gel pens and Copic airbrush!  (Also a good reminder that Gel pens and alcohol-based markers don’t play nice.)

Art cards drawn for Otakuthon: The Bernadette was for Philip, who I finally got to meet after 7 years!  The leftover Amya cards are going toward certain pledge-tiers of the Volume 1 kickstarter campaign (now funded and gearing up for print!). 

Some of the doodles and commissions from Otakuthon (which was marvelous!). Patricia, if you see this: please contact me because I owe you a re-doodle of your character in color (on Saturday I switched to offering color drawings for the same price).

Had so much fun, saw tons of cool art and cool people (and food)!  Art-traded pretty gal sketches with orpheelin (*screams*).  All my thanks and more to Savannah, and to Brigitte and the staff of Otakuthon who made this such a wonderful convention. 

A doodle mailed to a friend (and Hulk fan) who’s gone off to boot camp.  The picture was ajrpg's cute idea!

Also I’ve been watching a lot of Pokemon, lately.

Faye’s lack of shoes in Amya really obviously needs to be turned into a shipping moment. If anyone has forgotten that VincentxFaye is my ship, I’d like to remind you that VincentxFaye is my ship. Thanks~
Soaps is currently taking shoe requests for Faye! Go request Faye in cute shoes!!!
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY GO LOOK AT AMYA’S KICKSTARTER!!! ONCE FUNDED, FAYE WILL HAVE SHOES FOR LIFE!!! 

T-THE BESTShe needs those boots in her life (and Vincent wouldn’t hurt as well).

She needs those boots in her life (and Vincent wouldn’t hurt as well).   

1. storyofthedoor's request: these darling Red Fox Mary Janes

2. @cinnasketches requested fluffy bunny slippers, something that Faye darn-well deserves after all her recent hard walks and wear-and-tear.  (cinnasketches also whipped up this elegant fanart!)

With 37% left to go, Amya’s kickstarter still needs your help and Faye could use more shoes - requests’ll remain open until we reach the end of this kickstarter campaign!  

Poor Faye has been running around for nearly 50 pages without shoes. Please, help her by checking out Amya’s Kickstarter!  These printed books help sustain the comic, and with 43% left to go this campaign needs your help.To help keep up awareness I’m now taking sketch requests of Faye wearing any shoes you’d like (army boots, slippers, whatever the hell these are, and so on).  Requests are welcome through replies, private messages, or twitter.  We can’t thank you enough for your support!

Would you mind sharing what type of pens you use for your work that you color them with copic markers? My pens often bleed when I try to do a sketch card that way. X_x

Not at all!  I used Microns for these, mostly black but some browns and oranges for inking flames or the leopard spots. Deleter Neopiko pens also do the job wonderfully. I’d prefer rolling with G-Pens or Rapidographs, but something about that india ink seriously hates Copics, same for most gel pens (though white gel pens are great to layer on top of colors for tiny white highlights).  Hope this was helpful!

On the subject of art cards, here’s the step-by-step from coloring this cutie!

For anyone curious, the Copic tones:

  • Base skin tone: E50, blended to the white areas with Y000
  • Reddening/blush/Lipstick: RV11, R81
  • Shad1: E01, E11
  • Eyes: BG45, B06
  • Hair: B000, B01
Savannah and I have been invited to Otakuthon this year for our work on Amya! Can it really be almost two weeks away? If you’re in Montreal for the big event, we would love to see you.
Needless to say, I’m beyond honored and this trip marks many exciting firsts for me, from being an invited guest of a con, to going outside the US (and how awesome to be seeing Montreal), and to actually personally meeting Philip Bourque, the writer with whom I got my webcomic start back in 2007. 
Like the last time I joined the Amya table, I’ve whipped up some hand-drawn/colored art cards for the occasion. These originals will be for sale, so message me if you’re attending and would like to reserve one ahead of time!

We have been sharing a lot of Amya art recently, but here is a little something different. This is Emma of the fantastic webcomic Namesake. If you haven’t read it yet, go do so! It was done as an art exchange to help cross promote some fantastic kickstarters!
If you like stories with strong female leads please check out:
The Valor Kickstarter
The Amya Kickstarter
I promise you won’t regret it!

Savannah’s said it all - Namesake is a total pleasure to read and to fanart!  Coming up with this visual was so difficult in the shadow of Isabelle Melançon’s amazing compositions - just want to stare at her covers all night long. Magic lady Kickstarter par-taaay.
