Just playing around with two old characters in an old style. I miss this… I think I’m going to play with them for a while longer~
This isn’t finished, it’s just a sketch ^^; I know it has problems! It’s the Unicorn Princess and Prince Never all dressed up to go adventuring. UP’s a Paladin and Never is a Knight. I feel like they need a caster or a sidekick, haha.
Ceres comes out of the restaurant only to find it has begin raining, a troubling proposition for a flame based critter.
I absolutely love it. :D It came out exactly as I imagined it would, I love the style, the color choices, and the feel of the piece. I could not be happier with it. I adore Cerri, she’s so much fun to play with.
Hopefully you like it as much as I do. Now, back to those commissions! On to bigger and better things!
A preview of a little something I’m working on, since I can’t post any of the commission work I’m currently doing. I’m having such a rough time with the grass but a riot with the trees. :D Let me know what you think!
This is kinda old news for most of the internet, but for those who don’t know, Adventure Time takes place in a post-apocalyptic setting as revealed by its creator.
According to the show, 1000 years ago the “Mushroom War” took place, and it is speculated that “Mushroom” refers to the mushroom clouds made in the explosion of nuclear bombs. Since then, life has begun anew, and mutation has caused quite a variety of new creatures.
In practically every episode, there is reference to our, now dead, civilization in the backgrounds. Broken buildings and cars and the like are usually partially buried in a lot of settings. In the opening of the show, dud nuclear missiles and broken pieces of tech are scattered in a wasteland and a gray and red (zombie-like) arm reaches out of a tree.
The earth is shown to have a chunk of it missing (It looks like North/South America is almost gone?). In the episode “The Linch”, the group travels over a body of water following the Linch to his lair, where he appears to use toxic waste (possibly from the nuclear war) to fuel his power. His hideout is in a destroyed subway station, and upon entering Finn and Jake are attacked by possesed modern-dressed skeletons, as if the people died in a bombing waiting for their train. On the surface just outside, tanks and more dud bombs can be seen.
In the episode “Susan Strong”, the Hyoomen species lives in an underground abandoned city, where humans may have tried to live after/during the war before dying off or mutating.
It is mentioned several times in the series that Finn is the last human, or that humans haven’t been seen for a long time. Marceline and the Ice King are speculated to be survivors of the the Mushroom War because of their ages.
Marceline is shown as a kid in a world which was not as rebuilt as Ooo, which implies she was born a little before or after the nuclear war. The Ice King is several hundred years younger than her. He can’t be a survivor.
The ice king is shown in what appears to be our modern world having discovered his crown in the episode in which Fin and Jake steal his secret diary videos. He is shown slowly losing his mind and turning into the ice king, possibly his transformation is caused not by the crown but by the radiation, or, alternatively, it’s possible the whole show is just the fantasies of the mad Ice King….
In any case, I would almost argue that this would make him older than Marceline, if I’m understanding this correctly. I shall have to look into this.
"No! I must fight the demons!" "No John, you are the demons."
This is “John”, a picture of an angel fighting demons! I’m very pleased with how it came out. It isn’t elegant fine art, but I really wanted a less detailed, more cartoony feel to the piece. The window behind her is spilling light onto the floor, warding off the demons.
This was a Christmas gift for a good friend of mine, Jeremy! He really loved it. The fact that it was a less serious piece was great, it let me play with my metallic water colors and try a bunch of new techniques. I had a load of fun working on this one and I hope you guys like it as much as I do!
