Just thinking by MorikoW
Just thinking
Same for this one: sorry for the spam people!

Moriko in different clothes again :P (Lick)
I made this one a while ago. I intend to finish it one day, but not anytime soon. So that's why I thought I could upload it like this for now.

I actually like this drawing/ line art. Moriko is a positive girl and makes lots of sarcastic jokes. But she's also a guardian and that's not easy. When nobody is looking, she is much more calm and enjoys things from afar. She likes being by herself sometimes and just think about things or enjoy your surroundings.
It's a side of Moriko that you don't always see.

Sorry for the spam! It didn't upload properly :(

I didn't know what to draw, so I took my phone and looked up some pictures of my nieces. They are my brothers daughters. I know I started out as a typical manga drawer, but things develop right?
I try to go between manga and realistic and find my own style there.
The first one is pretty accurate, but the second one (with the ponytails) just doesn't quite cut it. She looks okay, but doesn't have the same soul as the real kiddo you know? But hey! It was my first time even trying, so not bad for a first shot right? It is that reason, that I didn't want to color it though. I only color it when I'm statisfied. So I'll try again sometime soon and see how that turns out :)

Happy birthday! by MorikoW
Happy birthday!
Happy birthday Darknesseevee! :happybounce:
I know it's not much, just a really really quick sketch, but I wanted to make something. And the time and such. I usually work several days on a drawing and this was....wel an hour?
Darknesseevee made some lovely drawings of my characters, so I wanted to do something in return.
This is her character Alexandra and my character Kitsune. I guess the cooking lessons payed of haha :P

I want to upload some other sketched I made earlier and I want to finish some I have laying around. But maybe after, I can make something better for you :)
For now I hope you enjoy this small sketch.

Alexandra belongs to Darknesseevee.
Kitsine belongs to me ^-^

Hi there!

How are you all doing? Nice weather huh? Well not over here, here it's cold and windy and juk.

Some people asked me lately why I change the clothes of my characters so much. Because it makes them less recognisable. I think not, or hope not. I like to differ the clothes my characters wear, because I don't wear the same things all the time, nobody does. I love so many different styles, that I can only imagine my characters would too :)
But the formal clothing, like the clothes of the Guardians or Kaito's tribe clothes, they most remain the same. But somehow I am never statisfied with them, so I keep changing them :P If anyone ever feels up to designing me some, let me know and do your worst. I would love somenew ideas.

Another question I got was why sometimes Moriko has a MechPro (the prothese) and sometimes she doesn't. That's mostly because of the timeline. Halfway my novel, Moriko loses her arm and gets the prothese. So if I draw something that happened before that scene, she won't have it.
The same question about the feathers behind Moriko's and Lau's ears, they don't have them all the time. Like 3/4 of my novel, they don't have those earthingies. They get them as they grow a certain age and develop a certain power. The wings they got from birth, as they grow older more and more power will develop and their bodies will change. So those ear wings are really because of their age. :)

Some characters do change though. I am one of those people that think up a character and as they grow and develop in the story, there appearence seems incorrect. Makes me think of Kaito (which is right now being considered to write as Kaeto. Just because the pronouncation stays the same, but it looks more foreign :P ), Kaito had brown hair in the beginning, changing to blonde (mostly because I loved Cloud Strife his hair XD) and than setteling with white. White suits him, he's from the high north and lives in snow (mostly). Moriko's wings changed too. First I wanted them to change colour with the light thouching them. But The Guardians are descendants of mother nature, so later I wanted their wings to look like real life birds. So I changed Moriko's wings to a barnowls. Right now Lau is being changed quite dramatically. When I first started writing the story, everything was pretty much black and white. So were Moriko and Lau. Blonde, black and wings, white and black. I don't want that anymore. Lau is a well developed character by now and not just a bad guy. It's tough to change something that has stuck for so long though. But I am changing Lau. His hair might get brown or red and his wings might get green or a mix of colors like a parrot. I hope you guys will tell me what you think by the time it's up :)
I have been thinking to take my old drawings down, because the characters changed a lot, but I'm not sure. What do you think? Take it or leave it?

I hope that answered some of your questions :D
