thanks to yuhime and poly-m for proofreading <3

So these comics were planned as testing and practice grounds… last time I had this feeling that I'm doing the same thing over and over again, this time though I feel like I've been leaving most of my comfort zones on every page XD Trying out some new linework stuff and new layouts, and I’m liking it. 

And I absolutely love drawing brawls. Never did that before, just some fantasy fighting scenes with 'let's look cool for this shot' poses, but this was absolutely the most fun thing so far, both to draw and to plan out. 

Also - welcome back architecture and perspective! I missed you both...

Friendly creator’s note regarding last panel: like hell you can :|

Some more random notes below:

- more practice with dialouge scenes, though I actually feel this one is a bit too theathrical (?). But what’s done is done, let’s move on :|

- i’m still avoiding architecture, haaa, by placing the characters against the wall... smart  :|

- while doing this one i felt that i’m running around in circles, so i will try some different approach with the next scene...

- ...which will contain blood, action, blood magic, architecture, more blood, and as little dialogues as possible :|

- cheers :|

- :D

Woah! Thank you. Thank you so much for adding me to your :+devwatch:
I feel so honoured an artist like you likes my work. That has to settle in now. 
coupleofkooks Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2016
Well, since we are exchanging comments on regular basis recently I'm interested in seeing what You're doing there on Your side :P

Can't see new uploads now because of some stoopid bug, but I hope it's temporary :]

Mutantenfisch Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Not much going on on my side, recently. I'm stuck in University stress and have caught a cold, so I spend my free-time sleeping to get healthy again sooner. :sniff:

I hope that bug gets fixed soon.
I've had a similar one a year ago when I wasn't able to see responses. It somehow fixed itself after a few days. :shrug: Anyway, I hope yours gets better soon. :eager:


And whoah... I've used "soon" very often up there. Language variety, what are you? :ashamed:
coupleofkooks Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2016
Get better! :heart:

and thanks for the info, i hope the bug will go away :]

I'm getting more and more fascinated with your art recently and I'm totally in love with the colors and mood of your drawings :love: 
Do you have any tutorials uploaded of your drawing process? Or maybe some basic advice for me to get started with digital drawing? Or should I just jump right in trying to work it out?

(Btw I'm still looking forward to an art book of your drawings, should you ever publish one :)
coupleofkooks Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2016
Hello :] First of all thank You soooo much for the kind words, they really made my day :D

Unfortunately I can't offer any tutorials on digital drawing, since I'm constantly figuring this stuff myslef XD Since recently I've been doing the thing more or less just as with traditional media, though PS offers some cool solutions that make life easier. I suspect everyone who works a bit more in this program know them already, but so far I used it mostly for painting and had no use for anything else than brush tool >.> so it's all kinda new to me.... at the moment i'm hiperexcited that You can turn the alpha channel on lineart layer and paint it different colours, so you can imagine i'm still rather at basic levels with this stuff. But yeah, general advice is jump in, try out everything, mix everything with everything (that's more or less how i look for colour schemes...), and leave Your comfort zone hard :P 
If You start and You'll have some specific questions in mind, feel free to ask :] 


PS.: Black Sails is perfect, one of my favorite show <3
ShinigamiVermont Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2016

You're welcome. You have such a beautiful style which reminds me (obviously) very much of DA (of which I'm also a big fan :)) but also goes way beyond that to create something entirely new.
I'm also very fascinated with everything that surrounds the Fade/Mages and the DA lore in general. 
I got started with SAI today XD, it's kind of easier to handle for me than PS. PS has so many settings that it can be a bit overwhelming for a beginner ^^;

I'll take your advice and try out as much as I can until I figure out how everything works. It's much fun to test different colour scemes and experiment with shapes which you can't do as easily in traditional drawing.

Thank you, if I have any specific questions I'll let you know :)

PS: Yes! Can't wait for Black Sails Season 4 in January! <3

coupleofkooks Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2016
Thank You once again :] 

Yeah, Fade is an awesome theme for painting, though to be honest I don't do a lot of research and am not a specialist on DA lore, I rather imagine how it could work, and look, and feel and I like it that way :P

Good luck with SAI :] I never got used to the program, but I see a lot of people are working in it, and they make awesome things :]
