Snow Fall by JohnStaton
Snow Fall
Okay, back to cute devil girls, in the unspeakable act of making snow angels.

Normally, I like to work on pages in order, but in this case I decided to go ahead and work on the subsequent pages since I had problems composing Diva's falling sequence. It was a major help, when a friend of mine recommended that I simply flip over my initial composition. (That's what I get for reading too much manga, I suppose. ^^;)

I had fun with the snowman. Rather than settling for the obligatory top hat and coal eyes approach, (What kid, post 1918, has access to coal anyway?) I decided to use carrots and apples to give the snow golem features more appropriate for this unique community.

From Out of the Sun
Just about finished with the Big Planet Comics exclusive variant cover for Princeless: Pirate Princess #1.

I made Sparky's wings lighter, in a vain attempt at translucence in order to bring out Bedeli</b>, whose outfit I discovered to my consternation pretty much blends in camoflage-like to the dragons coloring.

Anyway, I hope folks enjoy it. :)

Princeless Progress
Now all the girls. (Yes, that's a girl dragon.) are colored in. Still need to wok on tones and highlights, while my obsolescent computer protests with every step.

Going to have to buy a new one soon.

PrinclessThree-Color01
Now starting the colors for the Big Planet Comics exclusive variant cover for Princeless: The Pirate Princess #1, shipping on January 25, 2015.

Of course Adrienne Ashe gets colored in first. She is the star after all. Supporting cast has to wait their turn. ;p

Dragonatomy by JohnStaton
Dragonatomy

Pencils for Sparky the Dragon, faithful aerial steed of Princess Adrienne Ashe.

There was quite a lot to puzzle out about drawing Sparky. From her powerful upper body, to her incongruous kangaroo legs, to her horse-like snout, and her freaky bat-wings, ol' Sparks was a quite a mythological conundrum. So much so, I opted to work out her bizarre "dragonatomy", on a separate piece of paper, later to be reunited with the Princesses Three through the miracle of Photoshop.

I am forced to admit, drawing helicopters is a breeze by comparison.

On a profoundly trivial note, nitpicking keen eyes will notice that I drew English saddles hitched around Sparky's midriff, as opposed to the Western-style saddles, she is usually drawn wearing.


I know it's a fantasy kingdom and all, but I just don't see medieval-esque fairy tale knights making use of American saddles. :shrug:

Interests
After experiences a seeming eternal dearth of watchable anime, I happened upon three GREAT shows.

Upotte Anime girls with assault rifles.

Girls und Panzer: Anime girls with tanks.

Strike Witches: Anime girls with WWII fighter planes for legs.

Yes, that's right, they all feature cute girls and assiduously detailed military equipment. :excited: I hope no one is surprised I like this sort of stuff. If you like this sort of stuff, you should check them out. :thumbsup:;)

Now all we need is a new anime with 4th and 5th generation fighter jets. :iconplanningplz:

Happy birthday! For what it's worth anyway; after a while it's another brick in the wall instead of a joyous date. But sometimes I have fun anyway. :)  Beer before Liquor; will get you sicker Airborne
