Paradise by Keitana Paradise by Keitana
The cover page for an AU OCT I am currently in the process of making! x3 :iconapocalypticrefrain:

I really like how this came out. My style is certainly developing into something that hates lineart, haha! It's very very fun to use though, so I'm actually quite happy about how style-related things are progressing.

On a similar note, this is actually a -full fledged- drawing from me that I did that wasn't for someone else specifically. Holy crap! The last one of those was last August [link] XD I need to give more time to myself, jeez.

Take a look at this song [link] . It was my inspiration for this painting <3

I hope you enjoy!

Ahh, so you decided to do a sequel? That sounds interesting. Makes me want to join in. Anyway, this is very lovely~ You're always getting better at colouring, and I feel like this in particularly really reinstates that to me~ I really like the flow in her hair and the lighting. This is really very pretty. Good job, and have fun with your OCT! I hope it's successful~

Yessir!
An AU sequel of course, since many of the characters won't be able to join in for a second go and setting it AU allows for a different story, yet keeping the little basics that past competitors were familiar with. :>

Thank you so much, I'm very happy you think I am improving!! x3 I find myself leaning towards colours much more often than my shapes and lines, so that's why I think my style is taking such a jump into lineless creations.

Oooh, that would be awesome if you ever wanted to join! O: I would love that. I suppose I could say positions for judges are open too, just in case you were interested.

Hmmm, well that certainly sounds interesting! I'm glad you're finding your place in styles though, that's very good.

Being a judge again would be nice, I will say that. I'd love to take you up on the offer, I just wonder what I would do for a character. I suppose Kuro is viable to a degree but it may be much more fun to shake it up a bit, so to speak? What do you think?

Okay sent it!
It's up to you to decide if you want to fit a character in or want to go without one. :>

Aha ^^

Oh, really? How nice! That sounds awesome, I'd love to have you on board.
As for NPCs this time around, it's a little bit different, considering the story. Currently the story is a secret, so I will note you what I have so far and you can brainstorm with me if you are looking for a place to fit a character!

I guess we'll just have to brainstorm then! I'm not quite sure what to yet when it comes to having a placeholder character yet, so I think I'll discuss it with you, if you like.

Sure thing!!
Well he/she could be a resident/survivor?
Or if you want to be cool a demi-god knowing and opposing our antagonist?
Some ideas : P

Alright!!
I'll be working on the opening comic by the time the weekend rolls around. If it's no hassle to you, it would be great if you had your idea by Friday night. n_n Saturday at latest~

I like it. Good colors, particularly the slight transparency in the butterfly wings. Good flow, doesn't draw the eyes in an erratic manner. And I especially like the character design, how she at the cuffs of the sleeves and pants legs the fuzzy material adds to evoking a butterfly without taking it so far as to make the character seem insectoid and alien.

This makes me excited for Apocalyptic Refrain.

Wow, thank you so much for the in-depth comment!! It's such a treat to receive those.
I'm so happy you enjoy the composition and the character design; I focused a lot on those. It's pleasing to hear that my work there was noticed!
And hopefully Apocalyptic Refrain will be up and running soon~ ^^

You have the excitement to blame for the in-depth comment. That and lack of sleep. I get verbose when those two combine.

As a side note, the excitement also spawned this journal entry, which may be relevant: [link]
