Lock and key by curlyhair Lock and key by curlyhair
So..what this silly image means? good question XD
Well, first of - this is one of the 100 themes meme
[link]
Secondly, since I'm about to start drawing my comics, I wanted to try my painting techniques on something else before.. I still suck, so it was another disappointment for me =( Gotto prepare myself better and to find the fastest (yet visually interesting) style for my novel.
Anyways - this is Sid Gallahan

And his first rival - Alan Mac Dara.
Close up

Not much about this guy yet - he's an autumn fairy, that's why he's followed by the withering leaves all the time, and he's very proud and noble . He's a tough opponent to pick on.
Hope you like it ^^

Well you're fifteen and you're that good! :D I'm double your age - you have 15 years - plenty to leave me far behind :D I'm so envious of the new generation - when I've started, it wasn't that easy :D you have a lot of tutorials and artists - all you need is just motivation so keep it up! ^___^ And if you need any help - feel free to pm me.

Listen, I've learned it with years. It takes some time to understand. Popularity is a good thing, but don't try to chase after it. I've even stopped entering contests at some point. The most important thing is to stick to what YOU want to do. If it's about to finish my comics page or make another contest entry or post - I'd always choose my comics. Because it's keeping me focused on my goals. When you continue on your way, you're producing something more elaborate, you're finding another depth within you, and it shows out - then you'd become famous, whether you seek it or not. Me appearing on the cover of Imagine fx would be just a notice of me going at the right direction. I know that I'm good because I like what I'm doing. It could have been much worse if I've been thinking that I'm painting crap, and that's why I'm not there XD

Beautiful! very fascinating scene, I love the angle really draws you in.
The character's design is very cool, they have a very good taste in clothing ;)
I don't know the character info but, since they are fairies, wouldn't you want to add a bit
of glow to their wings or something or is it on purpose?
Anyhow great piece, beautiful colors.

I love to think of what would they wear, so this is a great compliment to me :D
They are both characters from my ongoing comic novel, so it was partially training image. You have more info on them in the description too. I think too much glow will ruin the pages - and I want more like casual daily atmosphere, not so epic :)

Интересная картинка. Динамичная. Мне кажется, что немного лишнего зачернила за дальней фигурой (сверху). Что-то фрейдистское есть в сюжете))).

Спасибо! ^^ Наверно когда тень наложилась на сундук вышло темнее чем хотелось. Да я от нее вобще не в восторге если честно - хотелось как лучше а вышло.. ну хоть дорисовала - я все думала дропнуть по дороге, в конце домазюкала из чистого упрямства.
А насчет сюжета - ога!! я великий извращенец

I love the perspective on this, it gives such an action feeling. But I have to ask, what's up with the key on Sid's back? wouldn't it be impractical to fly with that there? :)

This is just the basic Gatekeeper, and the Key Master scenario, just done with fairies!

I'm not sure what you're talking about.. is it some game? But overall - yes, I was thinking plainly, just another chance to paint my characters ^^

the idea of a Gatekeeper and a Key Master are pretty basic fantasy, by the way I was raised. if there is any confusion look at the names a little more closely. GATE-KEEPER: the keeper for the gate or LOCK. KEY-MASTER: master of keys. (Also look up and watch ghostbusters,that will help you understand what i'm thinking about.)

omg thats practically what I'm doing! theres just a couple of mine, like 'fanart' or whatever, that I will not include my characters, but its a GREAT excuse to get your OC's coming out of your head and onto paper lol.

well I think it came out great :aww:

Wonderful design, but I'm confused by Alan's expression.
Alan has his weapons drawn ready to fight; but I can't tell if he is summoning a spell, doesn't see Sid, or he actually is blind and just sensing where his advisory is???

He knows exactly where Sid is - he just stays close to lock cause he's defending it. If you check the close up - you can see that he stares right at Sid.
