Test panel for a very short comic I’m planning to do. Don’t know yet whether I’ll actually do it digitally or colour it in traditional media, guess I’ll test both beforehand.
The bigger problem, however, is that I’m not satisfied with the script. It’s supposed to be for a contest, and to carry a very political message to please not pollute German waters because they’re dying (and specifically, the seahorses are dying). While animals are totally my jam, I suck at both political and satirical. I also think that realistic settings are boring.
All that comes to my mind is magical girls, seahorse mermaids, epic scenes, and psychedelic colours. I doubt that any of these will work for the contest, as much as I love them.

Thanks comic muse, I’m glad you’re here and giving me ideas, but could you please give me those I can actually use?
Guess that is what happens if I listen to songs like Answers from Final Fantasy XIV and Key of the Twilight from .hack//Sign on repeat. Then again, I’m not willing to change my background music just to fit this contest, and I wouldn’t know what to listen to for that purpose, anyway. (these songs are so achingly beautiful, check them out if you don’t happen to know them!)
Lady Gaga and Halestorm didn’t help, either.

A private commission I did for my mum’s colleagues. I’d never have guessed I’d ever paint a car, but I suppose there’s always a first time.

Sorey’s white spandex Super Saiyajin suit, Rose’s frilly Sailor Senshi dress, both their rainbow sparkle powers, their rapunzel hair, and their weird spiky high heels are gifts to mankind and should be appreciated.
So I decided to do screencap redraws of some armatus mystic arte cut-ins. In case you couldn’t tell yet, subtly de-anime-ing anime is one of my favourite pasttimes (and amazing practice, too. You wouldn’t even believe how I struggled with the colour flats, even with the blues!).
For a second, I actually thought about doing a screencap with an actual background for practice reasons (because GOSH this game has glorious sky backgrounds), but I wanted to draw the armatizations and flashy elemental effects, so that won out. It reflects how I play this game.

My sister: “You’re using the Sailor Moon mode more often than you’re using normal attacks, aren’t you?”
Me: “Er… yes???” *violently hits L1 and is offended whenever an enemy doesn’t have any elemental weaknesses*
Also me: *sometimes uses the water armatus just because she’s too lazy to move towards the enemies*
Also me: *armatizes with seraphim under-attack-at-the-other-end-of-the-battlefield because it solves the age-old “STOP ATTACKING MY MAGE, YOU ASS!!!” problem. And also because I’m sure Mikleo would be SO pissed to be saved from attacks that way, and that’s funny*
Also me (actually in every video game ever): *screams, curses and shouts at the screen, and pushes buttons with a lot of force*

I case you didn’t realise it yet, this game has officially both saved and destroyed my life, it’s very flashy and I love it. The anime is a wonderfully animated bad fanfiction, though, and I recommend to stay miles away from it.
*silent whisper in the distance* You can’t purify dragons.

Imagine these cut-ins being ANIMATED. This should have been the Zestiria anime that we all deserved but didn’t get, damn it.

ANYWAY, TECHNICAL INFO:
All Photoshop. Lines are sloppy, colouring is sloppy, everything is sloppy, but it was fun! There.Shall.Be.Even.More.Some.Day.
For the record, rough sketches of the remaining cut-ins (which I don’t intend to line and colour) can be found here: toradhart.tumblr.com/post/1580…. I love the fire armatus on Sorey, too, but his Super Saiyajin pose won out in the end.
AAAND this is new: for those who didn’t read about this yet, I sold my soul to Google and I now have a Youtube account! Partial recordings of some parts of the drawing process are up there! www.youtube.com/channel/UCpYor…

Furthermore, full size, layered psd.-files are available over at Patreon! (www.patreon.com/toradh)

There’s a damn lot of tropes and literary motifs which I love, but my favourite “one or two word-story ingredients” are probably, in no particular order: critters, music (and musical instruments used out of context), elemental powers, mythological references, and pirates. I have more favs, and most of them need more words, but anyway, I think these are on the top. (I might seriously want to think about making a list of very personal favourite TV tropes!)
For whatever reason I’ve never managed to insert them ALL in any of my original stories, it’s usually a “pick 1-3”…

…Anyway, I’m kinda curious, my dear followers, what are yours?
Honestly, tell me please

Hi folks,


I’ve got big news! I’ve finally sold my soul to Google! That is to say, I’ve created a Youtube account. I intend to use it for recordings of my digital drawings. Hi-res files and behind-the-scenes material is and will forever be for patrons over at Patreon (www.patreon.com/toradh) only, but I hope that I can offer something new and halfway interesting/fun for everyone that way!

Please feel free to follow me there and watch me doodling!
Link: www.youtube.com/channel/UCpYor…

Not much there YET, but I hope that will change with time!

Does anybody know how Youtube works? Can I change the channel name?
Does anybody know anything about video editing? It took me the entire evening just to find out how to speed up the speed and make the videos smaller, help
Don’t even try to get me adding music, preview pictures, subtitles, or whatever shenigans
Ahhhh

Will I ever get to bed before 2 am these days, I wonder


Anyway, please pass on the news! Tell everyone and their dogs about my channel x3.
Thankies, love you all!
