A quick speed paint I did of my character today. I verily enjoy drawing him due to the fact his facial structure is difficult to render in my style.
“Darling, would you like to become an angel?”
This is a rather old picture. The only thing I like about it is the lamp in the background. I will probably redo this image at some point.
“Stop your crying, boy. We wouldn’t have to do this if you would just behave. Why can’t you be more like your sister? Such a doll she is.”
Hoorah! It’s finished. This is the last piece in a series of siblinghood illustrations for my story, Heaven Module. The characters featured here are Lysander and Nerissa Desario.
This is the second piece in a series of siblinghood illustrations for my story project, Heaven Module.
The characters here are Marquise and Tristan Vanstrom.
This is the last work in progress shot I will be uploading! I am so excited for this to be finished! *-*
This is the last piece in a series called ‘Siblinghood’ for my story.
“Darling, I never doubted that you would make a lovely tyrant.”
Meriko Roland from my story, Heaven Module.
“Pardon me, I really didn’t mean any trouble…”
A boy mutters, eyes averted and head slightly bowed. He combs his fingers nervously through his bright, russet hair.
Character stuff I might use later
Lucas Roland is the older brother of Meriko Roland. They live in a small rented room in a poor area of Victorian London. The two of them have drifted from one place to the next for as long as either can remember. He spends a great deal of time trying to find permanent work, often taking up odd-end jobs.
He tends to be extremely withdrawn and nervous. In the face of any conflict, he prefers to deflect the aggressor with a meek smile as the flees the scene. This causes a great deal of tension between him and his sister, who happens to be impulsive and conflict prone. He finds her wild imagination and brash personality irksome. He wants nothing more than peace and appreciation, at the sake of all else.
Lucas holds principles over practicality. He most desires to lead a “good, respectable life,” whatever he believes that to mean. For the moment, he is keen on the prospect of pursuing a girl by the name of Adelaide Jameson. Adelaide is the only daughter of moderately wealthy merchants. Sweet tempered, mild mannered, and agreeable, she is exemplary of a desirable lady. A successful union with this fragile violet would potentially change his life.
It initially seems that his social status would thwart any chances he might have. Would a well-to-do merchant throw their sole daughter to the likes of an orphan?
“If there’s something so wrong with it, why don’t you stop me?”
This is my main character for an ongoing story project. Her name is Meriko Roland. She is a street urchin living with her brother in Victorian London. She is a clever, albeit very strange girl, especially for her times. Despite living in a world with strict gender roles and expectations, she sports a masculine appearance and demeanor. Life on the streets has honed her pickpocket skills, earning her quite a reputation the Holbourn alley dwellers.
The plot of Heaven Module surrounds her and her seemingly commonplace troubles as a waif. She leads a fast paced and morally questionable lifestyle, always living in the moment. This causes strain on her relationship with her brother, Lucas, seeing as how her sibling is quite the opposite.
The trouble always seems to arise when Meriko stirs up too much excitement. She certainly has a knack for mischief. Lucas on the other hand, is a very reserved, meek individual who dislikes conflict. It would seem that this contrast in dispositions is the root of all their discord. However, no matter where the arguments start, they always seem to end on the same thing, a very peculiar thing that happened a long time ago.
In fact, neither of them quite remember what actually happened. It’s always a game of pointing fingers through hazy recollections.
“Lucas! You promised you’d come back!”
A story unfolds upon a foggy memory involving an doctor, a girl in purple, and a strange place with long hallways and barred windows.
Here is the progress so far on a CG that I am very close to being done with. I am so excited about this one. This is the third in a series of siblinghood illustrations for my story. (The others will be up in the Heaven Module page on my Tumblr as soon as I get it all worked out.) It’s painted in Photoshop. Unfortunately I couldn’t find any references for this one.
So far, I am really liking the atmosphere and color scheme. I think the greenish tones reflect a sense of disgust and illness.
