Quinnola Sketchdump 01 by travelingpantscg Quinnola Sketchdump 01 by travelingpantscg
Well, this at least proves I HAVE been drawing. haha

What's a Quinnola?

Quinnola is a name combo of Quinn and Enola, *GodsDragonGirl and my characters, respectively, from the RP Crosswind [link] . They're a couple and thus are clumpified. haha. Also, they're both magic wolfies that can assume the illusion of humans, but Enola's a ball of weird and never lets said illusion drop. haha YEEHAW.

So, this is just a chunk of the stuff I have of them, and some of it is WIP pieces (like the upper left hand corner). Some of it is actually based on threads we've done, others are simply me messing around, like in the bottom 6 panels. Those spawned from me saying, "Omg, what if this was AU and modern times and Enola and Quinn had never met and were both at some function and then she saw him across the room and couldn't stop looking...?!" HAHA. Like, LAME, but I still love it! haha

Muh, I love them so bad.

Your sketches make me want to be a better person. lol just kidding (kinda) but HOWWWWWWWW did i not see these till now? I suck as a watcher/friend/stalker. love love love love the bed-clingy one and the TREE! so romantic (but vaguely Twilightish, lol...damn you Stephenie Meyer! First, for having my first name and spelling it weird. Second, for permeating the culture so much that I can't look at 2 ppl chilling in a tree without thinking of whiny teenage girls and the sparkly undeadd!)

I'm totally jealous of your expression skills and how you can draw men that are HOT! lol, i can't seem to draw a manly man, just drag queens! haha.

Fan-freaking-tastic work, I guess would be the main bullet point of this comment :D I demand morrrrrrrre.

Really?! I was pretty sure cupid would have favoured Cristofori (but again I suppose it's a bit stupid from my part to try to foresee the developing of a RPG game I can't attend, by just looking at your previous sketches, isn't it? *LOL*)
Each time I see a your drawing of this lady I'm enchanted by her tridimensionality: graphically she has a her "weight" and really she does occupy the space, she is "soft" but at the same time solid and steady. Geez, I'm terrible trying to explain my ideas.
Anyhow I think I love her hips and legs in the "tree pose" (and the boy’s eyebrows too) =D

I have SO MUCH LOVE for ALL of these, you KNOW I do. SO SO SO MUCH!

My favorites are definitely the snuggles and the "what the heck?" picture of them both, just purely for the expressions and how fabulously you drew them! SUCH wonderful sketches, I cannot get enough of it! Opera gowns are to die for, as are the snippet of panels from the river run. I like LOVE Quinn's expression of "well, clearly I am the smugest person EVER" and Enola's "WHAT". Hahha! Gosh that was SO much fun to write!

And of course, the bottom panels of her looking just kill me dead with their beauty. You've gotten so good at just whipping her out, and it's so beautiful

Thank you! And WOOHOO Chris Pine! Quinn is actually based on Josh Hartnett (lookswise), who, incidentally, is SO HARD TO DRAW and we have NO IDEA WHY. haha. But Quinn's creator, ~GodsDragonGirl, will be over the moon at the idea that his looks might also have some Chris Pine in them. haha

haha, I know how that goes. I constantly change up my desktop with work in progress pieces~ so A: I can see them constantly and ponder what needs to be fixed, and B: remind meself that I NEED to finish them! I have a drawing of an OC couple started oh...over 6 months ago...put in like 1/2 an hour of work, and I haven't gone back to touch it ~ though I SEE it on my desktop and think "Oh! You have potential!" :heart:

I don't have very good digital coloring stamina yet... ^_^**

I'm running out of ways to tell you how awesome you are at faces and OMG everything!! DARN YOU!!

I must say I really really adore that image of them standing in the tree (even though it's flagging images from the Twilight movie lol) and I must insist you go and colour it and make it more aweomse . . . right now!! :iconshakestickplz:

I now wanna draw Quinn being like, "Hold on tight, spidermonkey," and have Enola being like, "... wtf are you talking about?" HAHA. That drawing, though, was actually one based on a thread, so I'm gonna hold onto my delusion that we didn't inadvertently make them RPatz and Kristen Blank-Face. haha

And EEE, COLOR, I'm a-tryyyyyin! haha

Ow Amanda ! You're my master ! You're proving me that by your own, without art classes, you can succeed in creating a universe. When I look back in your dA gallery and compare to what you can do now, it's WOW ! You're so inspirational !

I hope you'll go to the school you wish to go, you deserve it !

Omgosh Mushee, this is one of the best compliments ever. Seriously. I'm SO pleased to have inspired you in terms of growth, and the whole reason I've left my old stuff on this site is so that people can back-track and see that the quality was once something different. So I'm happy you looked. And there IS so much that can be done without GOBS of classes on this. I've taken a handful of them, and they've always given me a new jumping off point, or something that led me to want to push myself harder when I was away from the classes. You definitely can teach yourself a LOT.

So thank you SO MUCH babe! :hug:

I agree with you about classes. There are good advices but the goal is to push yourself as far as you can in term of creation and knowledge. It's soooo a question of willing. The art school isn't all, that's true, but it helps. That's why I subscribe in a school in the South East of France (and I'm from the West. 4 hours of train next Wednesday ! Yadee Yadaa ! ) which offers me a great number of perspectives (book illustration, comics, infography, 2D and 3D animation along with sculpture, perspective, living models, still-live, concept art lessons). Because I'm curious about many ways of telling a story well. And I think you're the same way. You like to tell stories and express emotions in pushing yourself further. And your gallery really reflect that well too.

God, it's just wonderful :D Happy to hear about the development in the plot of the rp too, sounds kickass :D I love the design of both of them, and that scene with the tree or the one in bed look amazing... wistful and romantic and all ya could want ^^ I am also super in love with the HATS! HATS ROCK. I'm loving the dress designs too, work those hips babe ^^

And of course the expressions, but you know you rock at those ;) They stand out most with the work in the 6 pannels, I'm just amazed how varied they are. I was thinking of how I'd draw just that, and it'd look a heck of a lot more boring and... the same-ish XD

Omgosh, THANK you babe. That means a toooon (er, ton, NOT toon, haha) coming from you. I'm so glad you like how the bed and tree ones came out. The tree one ended up in a sketchbook I sent off to CalArts, so I hope THEY like to TOO! *shakes fist* haha. And oh god, I'm so glad you were like, "HATS!" haha. It's a running joke with Enola that she's always in these massive hats. And booya big hips! haha

And I'm THRILLED you like those last 6 panels. They were so much fun to do. And basically, I sat and thought about if the shots were from a movie, or something animated, how would she be trying to see him. So I just made myself think of the transitions from look to look, which is probably how I got them differentish. :D

Thank you HUGELY again. :D
