This is overdue by almost a year, but I’ve finished it nonetheless! Last March Liza asked that I draw Mobius Trip and Hadron Kaleido as carapacians doing something romantic. “Doing something romantic” was indeed my original intention, but it’s funny how nothing goes as planned. Therefore this changed from something “romantic” to something more along the lines of “let’s draw something based on how Chain of Prospit makes me feel,” and I think it turned out even better than if I had gone with my original idea because of that. Because let’s face it, Mobius and Hadron flying around on rocket boards without a care in the world is a pretty fun concept to work with!
The chains of Prospit, however, have become a new artistic enemy of mine. If there’s an art hell, the color black is its ruler, yellow is its right-hand (left-hand?) man, and there’s a special circle reserved solely for chains, cello strings, and wings, all of which I’ve struggled with in the past. It’s not a pleasant place.
With this, I think I’ve finally come out of the art slump that’s been plaguing me since December 20th of last year! I know it’s a little late for me to be saying this now, but I look forward to 2013 being an artistically productive year and I’m excited to see what improvements await me.
Also if you look closely there’s an Unreal Air ascending into Skaia. It is RIDICULOUS what kind of air that thing is getting. Dude go get the ruler check that out.
Yeah, it’s not coming back.
