AIKONIA VOLUME ONE - 25% OFF SALE FOR NO REASON!

We’re doing a short 25% off sale on the first volume of Aikonia!

The offer ends on April 30th, 2014 at midnight MST and is only available for the first 100 sales. We also reduced shipping prices so, if the prices were holding you back in the past (and you were super jealous that all your other friends had their own copies), now’s your chance to get a copy of your own!

The comic also includes a PDF that contains the original report that Cyril delivered to the council on Page 7 and Katie Tiedrich’s original sketches for the entire first chapter of the comic! The PDF will be immediately downloadable after your purchase to hold you over until you receive your physical copy :)

You should buy the thing! Because Katie’s art is awesome! And Aikonia is great!

Uuuugh drawing while sick is the worst. Yesterday was 100% false hope; today sucks. Correspondingly a very sickbrained doodle of pony Dean bucking. Blef.

Holy crap going without line width variation was weird. Anyway, Dean! From Iron Giant. Which you should watch if you haven’t already. Love this guy.

Dis guy.

Almost definitely getting sick and not up to much, so this is seriously just a doodle. Ugh.

Rounding out the trifecta in what’s apparently a series on the main party ladies of FFIV, Porom. Gave her big ol’ baby cheeks. I’m focusing on the original game, not TAY, but definitely took inspiration from her TAY look — pink streaks in the hair, turned the cowl… thing… into closer to a wrap, and angled the stripes on her torso. But mostly it’s just that her official CG render creeps me out. She’s five, for fuck’s sake =|

[Rydia] [Rosa]

Like with yesterday’s Rydia, I wanted to give Rosa more distinctive facial features/shape, along the lines of this Amano art… the CG in the re-releases is pretty and all, but there’s a serious case of generic ladyface. I love emphasizing her archery. Her bow is loosely inspired by Princess Zelda’s from Twilight Princess.

Oh, wow, I really love this one (and I adore Rosa for being a white mage archer, a combination one doesn’t often see).
You’re doing fascinating things with line art and color in these. 

Thank you! I love her job class combination and roll around in it at every opportunity. I’m glad you like the line stuff! Mostly just experimenting with paying more attention to flow =)
Also, “morning” reblog and added links to illustrate what I mean by generic ladyface. They’re such distinctive and different characters; they deserve way more character in their faces than that =\
