Helloo. This was a little doodle I did (Err.. a little bit more of a doodle but I'd say less than my BEST work) of a character of mine, Merleawe. If you follow my tumblr, you may have seen her. She's in both a manga and visual novel for PC I'll be working on (~SteveKB will be coding it). I hope she and her story can be an interesting one. UvU

If you didn't already notice, I'm taking a bit of a hiatus for now from Osen. Osen is a much bigger story and is fantasy / magical girl based, where this story (The Brick Library) is much shorter and emotional. A good starter for working on manga.

It's cool to see some earth-y? colors in your work! I dunno, maybe I just want her dress :|
Her ankle/feet looks a little week though. It's always good to pull up a few references to base off of, while you're working;
you can see from that, that her heel/foot would stick out a bit more and have a more defined shape~ I think it'd be good to show more of the toes as well. Hehe, anyways, keep up the fabulous work. You always make me jealous at how fast you improve :3

Oh oops did I never respond to this comment?

Haha thank you. She is part of a story of mine that's kinda dark and vintage-y, so she's not gonna get the bright anime colors like the other pictures, haha.

Thank you~ I was super lazy on that foot. |O WHO NEEDS FEET? //shoots off into the sun

How is college going? o:

YESS, feet are stupid. My figure drawing professor told me outright last year "Breanna, you suck at feet"
and I was like
...fine .../cries"

It's uh, stressful right now. I'm a sequential art major, but I want to do freelance illustration. D': Seqa classes really just teach you how to draw (which lolol, I need)
BUUTT I have to figure out how to put together a illustration art style & portfolio together on my own...which will, this summer. -dies-

But living with art people is very awesomesauce. Makes me hate being back in michigan with those...normal people. THAT AND THERE ARE NO ART STORES IN LIVONIA.

What about you? What are you plans after graduation~?

I'm not 100% sure, since I doubt SCAD will accept me at this point, but I think I'll either go take a year off and get a job / convention hopping for a while (Selling fanart and prints) or I'll go to a community college and then work my way up into SCAD, and when I get there, I want to take animation *3*
BreannaWelsh Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013
ohhh, you want to come to scad? You'd love it here <3 (we have cintiq labs, hehe)
Don't doubt your ability to get in, scad really does accept...anyone :| ...which is why we have one of the largest freshman dropout rates. Eh.

Though the only downside is that they started cutting all the artistic/academic scholarships this year.

Man I want to go to a con ;-; My friend Betty (Kafai on here) is like...a con queen. She makes all income through cons xD But yeah, seriously, if you go to scraft or something, TAKE ALL THE GEN EDS. We're required to take 6 art histories, 2 english classes, 1 math etc etc...waist of money, in my opinion!

weew, 2d or 3d animation? Haha, either way, be prepared to never sleep or see sunlight. Ever.
