Valentine 2015 6/6

Better late than never . . . I invested in my first set of Copics, and while I wish I had a larger set for better range of color, I am enjoying working with them, though I acknowledge I have a lot still to learn. 

Like last year, I decided to do a combination of fan art and OCs.

I’ve been reading a Dickens novel each year recently, and in 2014 it was Bleak House which I enjoyed, but there wasn’t really a couple to ship (I just wasn’t that interested in either Ada/Richard or Esther/Allan).  So I fall back on my favorite Dickens novel (other than A Christmas Carol), Little Dorrit.  The 2008 BBC mini-series caused me to pick up the book, so you get Claire Foy and Matthew Mcfayden in the main roles.  (Arthur Clennam spent his youth in China which always intrigued me though it isn’t discussed very much in the novel.)  The central image is based on a painting by Toulouse Lautrec www.wikiart.org/en/henri-de-to…. My first Copic landscape—and it’s far too pink to be London, but never mind.

I’ve become very interested in “The Shadow” as of late, both the OTR radio version (which starred, from time to time, Orson Welles) and the comics version (who was a lot more overtly violent than the radio version and had a rather fin de siècle costume going on).  I like both versions for their different merits.  I’ve drawn Lamont and Margo before, but I wanted to do a sexy Valentine.  It struck me that in the comics I’ve read, Lamont seemed to be the one in charge in the relationship, and not really in a nice way, though Margo verbally gives as good she gets.  So in my little scenario, Margo and Lamont are in some exotic locale, and Lamont has come back from some caper being the Shadow, and Margo decides now’s the time she wants to take him to bed, giving him no choice in the matter.  (It’s an exotic locale and that’s why Margo’s arm is so sun-burned, not because of my ineptitude haha.)

In 2009, I got a grant from the Elizabeth George Foundation to fund research into the life of John Milton, which I turned into a screenplay, Mr Milton’s Masque.  So far, unfortunately, I haven’t been able to do anything with the script, but I’m very fond of it.  So here we have young John in 1634, author of a masque for Michaelmas, and one of his leading ladies, playing Sabrina.  Yes, folks, this is Sabrina of

“Sabrina fair,
Listen where thou art sitting,
Under the glassy, cool, translucent wave,
In twisted braids of lilies knitting
The loose train of thy amber-dropping hair.
Listen for dear honor's sake,
Goddess of the silver lake;
Listen, and save!" 

No one knows who actually played Sabrina in this first performance, but in my script, it’s Elizabeth Castlehaven, who is from an aristocratic but tarnished background.  I had a lot of fun designing Elizabeth’s costume as Sabrina (and I tried to put some lilies in her non-very-amber-dropping hair . . . ).

MaripazVillar’s charming OCs from her comics series Superstition, Cati Abbott and Dr Andreas Marino.  The pose is gratefully acknowledged as stock from Null-Entity (null-entity.deviantart.com/art…). I’m least happy with this one in terms of coloring, I just didn’t know what I wanted Cati’s dress to look like.

This is the art branch of The Terrible Zodin, a Doctor Who fanzine which uses fan art to illustrate its pages. We do this for fun, and we need your art!

(Also, occasionally, the real life artist does her own thang.)

Current Residence: The Five Doctors
RULES (please read)
1. For the first 5 people who comment on this journal, I will feature one of their characters I like the most and comment my choice. (I will go to your gallery and pick one character and one picture I like, you don't need to tell me which one)
2. If you comment, please do the same in your journal, and put me in the first feature slot. The idea of this is not to get a free feature, it is to spread art around for everyone! I feature you after you made the journal.

1.  Sleyf

This is going to be fun!
