Oh no!!! *sigh* Was anyone able to save it? I found a tiny version on google search, but it's difficult to tell. Wish I could have seen it... 

I donno what it is about the process of drawing that fascinates me, but I just love it.

Oh no! So sorry I messed this up, katcombs! I'm working on another drawing of TYNAMI and be assured I'll share outlines and coloured version no matter what! Smile Your elf-self is inspiring! Looking so fierce, sexy, strong and... like a BOSS!

She's a chieftess after all Very Happy <3

Thank you Sifra! I'm still learning. Getting the right posture I find hard because of perspective and I always draw the head too big when I first try to get a draft of a full body shot. ^^

I love how your beautiful art is so vivid and shows the personalities of the characters so well! Your comics are also soooo freakin' funny and cool! Naked Cutter was the best! Haha! I may sound like a pervert now...XD

Beautiful chieftess TYNAMI is colored! I used a new color medium I never tried before...I really need to draw her close-up next time to catch the many color hues of her eyes...

I also have the problem of the heads turning out bigger than I want when I draw Elfquest style. The proportions of this style are difficult but also it's one of the things I like about Elfquest.
I'm glad you like my comics. Smile

Tynami's coloring is very beautiful. They do make her look like she is a woman with a strong personality.

There...so I'm not the only one with this "bad habit" of drawing big heads. ^^ But Elfquest sure does look unique and alien. Well
... technically most elves are fully extraterrestrial beings on Abode.

Your comics are amazing! Most people don't even know how much hard work is behind a few comic panels...I tried it once and it was pretty much exhausting...much respect! Excellent humour, too. Very Happy

Thank you for your kind comment on Tynami. Credit goes to Katcombs for designing her...I also adore her and especially red color theme (I have a thing for redheads - they're indeed powerful characters with appealing looks and mostly a strong and passionate personality <3)! She's such a beautiful alter ego elf...and has a well developed background as well.

Yes, I love the fact that the elves are really aliens, and that you can clearly see that they are not humans in their design. They really do look unique and alien.

I do take shortcuts in my comics sometimes, and I often end up regretting it. Razz I struggle sometimes between wanting to finish something (when I know I won't have time in the upcoming days/weeks) and wanting to take more time for a comic page. It's a shame that it takes so long because I love visual storytelling. Even with the flaws of Final Quest, I'd never be able to make something like Elfquest.

EEK!! I finally got a little time and I amazed at the beauty you made of Tynami. She looks so strong and vulnerable, yet ready to jump and fight at the same time... she just looks amazing. On here I can see more detail in the shoulder... I love how you did that. The wraps were original for her birds to land on so her forearm and shoulder don't get all torn up by the claws. The pattern there is beautiful and would still protect very well, love um! I think the anime style for her is just right... Thank you again for drawing her. Got the rest of today and tomorrow off... gonna go through my elves and thinking about spriting some canon characters.

@Sifra: I know this problem with shortcuts! Just so impatient to spit all the creativity out haha.
.and then it ends in a mess (with me, not you, your works are amazing...!).

You say you will never be able to make a comic...never say never! I find your visual storytelling really professional, fun to read and your comics do what comics are supposed to do: they entertain.

Your comics are HELLA ENTERTAINING! <3

Please don't stop! You have it all in you!

Maybe ink your drawings and make a webtoon? I read on LINE WEBTOON all kinds of comics and genres. There's a huge fantasy comic section as well.

https://m.webtoons.com/en/

Everybody can submit a comic there and even make money with it if the audience becomes big enough. Some people are drowning in the discovery area (the place for new comic artists) and some gain a huge audience right away! You never know unless you try...

Short description on how to start your own comic (you keep you copyright):
https://aminoapps.com/c/k-drama/amp/blog/how-to-upload-webtoons-on-line-webtoons/moGs_ku0PVaok8k7KK64wpYlvWLR5a3

I'd love to create my own webtoon as well. I have a story in my head...it's a huge fantasy story about a post apocalyptic world:

Humans hide in the underground because of a nuclear catastrophe and while they're hiding for centuries, something happens on the surface. Magical creatures come to life, born by the fruits of a gigantic tree like elves, mermaids, centaurs and living humanoid plants. They restore the earth. Over the centuries, myth becomes reality and humanity becomes myth. ^^

Then the humans appear again the surface and have to "prove" they want peace and not destroy the earth again. But they are not welcome and face prejudices. The hero, an elf-human-hybrid wants to unite humanity and all magical races in peace..however her twin brother sees his elf side as superior and her own brother becomes the villain, wanting to destroy humanity (what's left of it). Sorry for rambling about the stories in my head. ^^

I hope you will create your own comic one day. Just step by step, without the need of hard deadlines. Publish it somewhere online on a comic platform to gain an audience faster. Your characters would be so alive and amazing....and with funny quirks. I can tell by your Elfquest fanfiction storytelling.

You have the potential to be a GREAT comic artist. <3



@katcombs: So happy you like the version of TYNAMI! I love how you describe her wraps around her arm to be a protective landing for wild birds! She's so amazing... always more fascinating the more I read about this passionate chieftess.

I want to draw her with a bird's landing on her arm...! *-*

She's so cool! <3 <3 <3

That's okay, Prayer. I love people who ramble on about their own stories.
Your story sounds very interesting. I like the part where her own brother becomes the enemy. And I love stories with both fantasy and sci fi elements. Do you have character designs for your characters, yet?

I already have my own comic. I'm still improving my art, and I don't always have the time to work on all the elements. A comic page is just a lot of work, and like you said, sometimes you just want to continue the story. Smile
Also I don't update regularly so that's why I have not submitted it to a webcomic site. I do upload it to my Deviantart gallery.
Anyway... Sifra's comic
I don't want to take over your thread with my ramblings so I will make my own thread in the non Elfquest part of the forum. Smile

Wow, Sifra! You ALREADY have an awesome comic online! It's about a noble mouse! How cool is that..? Such a huge cast of interesting characters (wow, his father seems to be very unsympathetic - poor Frank!).

I am just speechless at how professional your comic looks. Inked, neat and clean. I also admire how you use many dots as a shading and the style of drawing mouses, soft and vivid in expression and body language.

I saved it (added the link to my mobile homescreen) and want to read it all as soon as possible! Unfortunately it's so late right now, I have to force myself to sleep or I will not functioning properly tomorrow. A bit bad if you have two kids! Man, why is sleep so boring and necessary when you have better things to do...Very Happy

I understand that you don't publish on a webtoon platform if you update not regularly. But I know comics there who have breaks for months like one of my favourites 'Helios Femina'. Yet there are still many fans who are willing to wait (a cliffhanger might work haha). Anyway I am still happy your comic is online - the platform doesn't really matter for me. Yay!

You're an exceptional artist - a comic is SO MUCH WORK indeed. I see lots of pages on your Deviant Art. Wow. Much respect. I wish I could be productive like that. *bows* *-*

Concerning my story idea, thanks for liking the villain twin twist lol...I wrote a summary for three books in novel form which I would like to go parallel with comic form. I feel more secure if I have a written base before I even go into the painfully hard work of drawing a whole story.

Here's a character design of the hero as a child. Her name is Felia. She is inspired by my son Felix and looks like a female version of him. ^^

I also find anatomy pretty hard when I have to draw from different perspectives I never drew before. Your drawings are so naturally and all kinds of perspective drawings you mastered beautifully. <3

I'm so in love with good stories. Whether it be books, movies, manga, webtoons or as well a comic on Deviant Art...:-)

Good idea to make a new thread about this topic...such a bad habit of mine to jump from topic to topic. It's interesting though. Hehe.

I like it that Frank has a difficult relationship with his father. I think it's an interesting story element. Smile

Thank you for the compliment on my inking. I worked hard to learn to ink like this, and I like working in black and white and with the dots.

I would love it if you read my comic! I am glad you are willing to read it even though it is on DA and not on a comic platform. Maybe I should try putting it up on webtoons. It would be nice to have readers. Razz DA is not very active anymore.
I understand not having enough time. I have many things I love to do but often I am too tired from work and taking care of my children.

I have tried writing, also, and in my experience writing and drawing are two very different ways of story telling. I never managed to make comics about the characters I wrote about, and I can't write about my mice, either. Because when I think up stories for my mice I think visually. Often, when I make my storyboards, I don't even bother to write down the text until the last minute. Razz But this is just my experience. Everybody has their own creative process.
I studied animation for two years and that helped a lot with anatomy, and also with creating movement in the figures, which I think is important in a comic. (I switched back to comics because animation takes up even more time...Razz)

Felia looks very cute! How funny that your son inspired you. My youngest daughter also inspired me in some aspects of Franks behavior.

I agree Sifra, your comic does look great! I have book marked it too for future reading. I like deviant art for its rich backlogs of content, but I'm kind of glad that it's not as popular and other places have popped up to feature comics. I really have a hard time navigating deviant art. I have to really really want to read a comic to continue with it.

That being said, you'll never see me in deviant art or webtoons, maybe fanfiction.net or wattpad though.

I haven't looked at everything in a while. Your drawings continue to be stunning Prayer! Any ideas for more? Or could I offer inspiration in a request?

Thank you Evie for the bookmarking. Smile I understand you have troubles navigating DA. It took me a long time to figure it all out and every time they update I am completely lost again. Embarassed
