lightning illuminates an ash cloud that extends ten kilometres high in this june 5, 2011 eruption of puyehue volcano, near osorno in southern chile. known as a dirty thunderstorm, this phenomenon is yet to be explained by science, as the source of the lightning (or the specific mechanism by which particles of differing charges are separated in the ash cloud) continues to be debated.

Whew! Done. This was a lot of trial and error and switching around, and no green this time. Which is sad, but sometimes, no green. That’s life. I’m posting my color sketch too.

This was loads of fun though, I haven’t done a group shot in a long time! This is going on the program book for this year’s Anime USA.  Go check them out!!

… and now line-art, after some shuffling and rearranging!

This image is going to be for a wrap-around cover, so certain characters (mainly the show’s mascot) needed to be on the right. I was a little worried it might flow weird, but I think it’s okay! Now I just have to figure out colors for everything.

drmalchance asked: TELL US ABOUT YOUR OCS. MAYBE give a brief description of who they each are? And then tell us about their role in the (hypothetical) story they're in???


Answer:

mimiblargh:

OK BRIEF INFO TIME ~

image

Name: Day Linn

Age: 18

Weapon: Sword

Day grew in the mountains with their parents, little sister and old brother, but since the day their brother left their town to become a knight, they wanted to do the same thing too. Though they couldn’t find their older brother, they started to live in the castle town where they train to be a knight.

Personality wise, i’d say day is pretty much the biggest sass master to ever sass, But they are loyal to their friends and to what they believe in.

image

Name: Magnolia Elizabeth Rorke

Age: 17

Weapon: N/O

Magnolia is a princess who is currently trying to prove herself to her father, the king. She comes from a family of long time summoners, and is competing with her siblings to take her father’s throne;

Personality wise, she’s the biggest sweetheart you’ll ever meet, but she’s anything but naïve. She has studied for a long time things like, laws, war tactics so she one day can take the throne and become a queen. She should believe in herself a little more though….

image

Name: Claret Woods

Age: 18

Weapon: Spell books

Claret is Day’s best friend, and Like they, she also decided to become a knight. The thing is, she showed potential to become a mage, so she decided to go with that instead. She lives alone with her younger brother in castle town, and her deceased mother, used to be a mage too. Her father used to be a wizard, which explains why she had so much potential in magic

Personality wise, she’s the mom of group, since she’s always so patient with everyone (she’s also the one who’s always saving day when they get in trouble)

image

Name: Luke Skywalker Luke Leonhart

Age: 15

Weapon: Daggers

A young thief who prefers to be called a treasure hunter; Hates knights more than anything, he decided to help princess magnolia on a secret quest though  because she promised she’d pay him good. (this and bc shes rly cute too)

personality wise, I’d say this kid is the epitome of TSUNDERE, NO JOKE. He acts all tough, but he really like cute things. Though he’s hard to approach, he’s a sweetheart with those he trusts

These are the main 4, but there are the others too, but i won’t tell much about them bc they’re spoillers kinda

fantagraphics:

"Knisley’s candid storytelling, deadpan humor, and clear-line storytelling make the book entirely accessible… like a giant bowl of spaghetti carbonara or a tower of huevos rancheros (recipes included) this is a book that teenagers and parents will savor in equal measure." – Publishers Weekly

Praise for Knisley’s previous book, Relish

"Relish possesses a poetic intensity and brevity that leaves the reader touched and haunted by life’s subtlest moments. Relish is by turns inspiring, witty, melancholy, surprising, and hilarious — in every sense a work of art." – Boston Globe

"Thoroughly winning… There’s a real sense of joy to Relish.” – The A.V. Club
