raevenote asked: Alice in a funny hat :) (#19)

Because Alice ends up in Clubs at one point, and these funny ‘hats’ are found there.

Anonymous asked: 18 the queen as a kid/adult

Here is the Queen of Hearts at about Alice’s age, during a period of her
life that will be shown later on in the comic. The monocle she wears as
an adult is not because of natural decline of eyesight, but due to an
injury she had around this age.

I’m open for more questions and draw OCs!

The complete set of redesigned outfits for page 5 of the Prologue redo.

I enjoy writing and drawing this family so much and sometimes I feel bad about their fate.

I’m messing around with some alternate outfit ideas for the Roese children as I plan out the prologue redo. Since I originally drew the prologue, I’ve figured out why the entire Roese family is together during the events of page 5, and giving them variations of their clothing styles for the location helps support the future scene that will touch on said events.

(also, Alyn would totally overheat in Hearts if he wore his normal Spades clothing there)

I’ve been looking at this comparison lately. Just over a year and a half of work separates the first 6 pages and the recent pages, and there is quite a bit of improvement as well.


There’s so much visual development work that happened after the Prologue, and I’m so glad I am reworking those pages for print (slowly but surely).

I was just pulled off of the Artist Alley waiting list and stuck on the floor for WonderCon.

Aaaand I’m just sitting here going “NOTHING WILL BE READY”

Testing out some new brushes. I bought the Frenden Photoshop Brushes today, and they are super nice.

While only one or two might work into Hearts of Roese (I have a specific set of brushes that I try to keep to with it) There are other projects that I’ll definitely be using the rest for (like the one I used as a tester above)

Another sketch for the Legend of Zelda fan comic that I used to play with.
One of the ideas in Star Seeker was that Link would find stars that had fallen from Ganon’s pockets after they were stolen from the sky. In a land that has fallen to eternal darkness and winter, the little pockets of light and warmth that come from a fallen star or a traveler’s lantern attract all sorts of attention, mostly bad.
At one point, he receives a magic slingshot that lets him shoot the stars back to their places in the sky from certain mountains, depending on where the star belongs (if this was a game, finding all the fallen stars and shooting them into the sky would be the game-long mini-quest).

Why yes, I did think a lot about the story and world when I originally worked on it.

Recovering from art depression by redesigning characters from old projects. I was also drawing spoilerific sappy things for Hearts of Roese, but I’m not posting those.

The first image is from a fancomic I did a bit of work on ages ago for Legend of Zelda but didn’t get far with. The concept was based on Ganon stealing the stars and breaking the sun apart to steal and creating an eternal winter in Hyrule, and Link’s mission was to gather pieces of the shattered sun before Ganon could, in order to end the winter. I called this project “Star Seeker”. This image is an updated concept of how I saw Link for this, wearing the Roc Cape and Silver Gauntlets.

The second picture is two characters from an original comic, Stowaway(s), which I think I worked on a bit in highschool and early college. It was basically a pirate vs ninjas comic, but not really. The gist was a bunch of ninjas abandoned their clan, and ended up as privateers so they would be on the seas and out of the ninja clan’s territory. They ended up saving a couple of members of the main pirate clan from being sold into slavery, and those that they saved taught them how to work the seas properly. Driann and Arken were the main characters, of the pirate and ninja clan respectively. (this redesign is a super drastic change from the old designs, and I will not post the old designs because they are from the era of “NEVER SHOW THIS TO ANYONE, IT DOESN’T EXIST” artwork.)

A thing on how I sit in my chair.
And my knee. It hurts when I try to sit in my most comfortable sitting position :(
