ETCZ - Binder Cover by ClefdeSoll ETCZ - Binder Cover by ClefdeSoll
I can't think up of a title ;~;;;

Anyhow, probably the last print I'll have time to work on before the con (since I have other things to get ready, and we're going to print it all up tomorrow!), and this one has a little history to share!

First off, I started this picture in 2009. I had mostly everything sketched up, except three panels, and half of them were completely finished, when I just stopped working on this for years. Usually, when I look bad at old art, I'll cringe on some details, but somehow it didn't happen with this one. I still liked it and felt sorry it was never finished (by the way, it's ETCZ's binder cover, as the title says; I place my trad art in binders depending on stories) so it was always kind of in my face.

Now yesterday I was trying to figure out what kind of print to do for ETCZ, and trying to sketch, nothing interesting came up and then I just decided to finish this thing because why not. It's funny how my style hasn't changed too much in these years (though the sky and Yfa panels being next to each other kind of make it obvious if you take the time to really look at it).

Also, ironically, the best panels are the ones I drew 3 years ago. Shame on me. 8T;;; I really need to go back to drawing with copics again.

Oh, and I had started this before all of my copics were stolen (a few months before that probably), and a pretty interesting thing happened. Back then I drew all the things I could with the colours I had and left out the rest to work on when I'd get the proper colours. Now since I bought back most of them but my colours are a bid different, I could finish the other half without any problem. Guess that worked out nice, huh?

I wish I could've included Yarn, Pad, Kesshite and maybe some others, but that's okay, the important characters are here ;7;;;;


I hope the colours don't mess up when they print it! >A<;;

----------

Tools Used: Sakura Pigment Liners and Copic Markers on paper
Time Taken: probably between 10 and 15 hours total
Characters: (from top to bottom, left to right) Yokoka Hoshi, Natsu Shima, Stripes('s horn), Waru Korosu & Fubuki, Chuuya Tsunami, Skye Tsubasa & Itsumo, Yfa, Furasshu Tenki, Kitty & Aqua Hoshi, Lumina Akatsuki (AKA Lum), Prince('s tail), Kage and title. (ETCZ, mine)

Their profiles will be up in the next chapter's updates, which will happen either this week or the next ;v;

here goes, though;
Lum - 15 (I think I changed it to 16 though xD)
Fura - 16
Natsu - 17
Skye - unknown
Itsumo - unknown, but old
Chuuya - somewhere around 17 or 18
Waru - 15~16 (same as Lum basically)

am i forgetting anyone like an idiot?

Mr. Pad (the eyepatched teacher) - around 25~30
Ms. Pink (the first teacher we see) is older though

Yokoka and Tsuki are unknown, but probably around 30. Thing is, they reached immortality so they look forever 20.

HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. ETCZ's characters ALL belong to me, save two. The list is here so you can have fun and count it LOL;;; [link] (also title changed to 'Combat' not 'Chibi', gotta fix it) and some others will probably show up.

As for 4fe, the list is here: [link]
and apart from the four at the bottom (and one who needs to be added), they all belong to me, though I sort of share Life, Charlotte, Mage and Noah (who hasn't showed up yet). By share I mean that my girlfriend came up with their concepts, but I did the developing. c:

the ones at the bottom were stolen from friend stories and used as cameos in 4fe with their permission to entertain them if you will. Mallory and Split belong to *kidann who picked one of MY characters and used her as one of the main characters in hers, so it's a way to do an exchange! Richard was created for 4fe, so then again it should probably be with the first list. Jake is borrowed from ~Kikiine who helps me a great deal with testing stories and always reads everything fervently. Also she hates me from times to times for never giving her any spoiler 8D <3

I'd love to read your stories, by the way! *A*

Uhhh 51-2 =49? LOL
And 25 in 4fe(counting Noah?) xDD
... I need to start making more human characters, I have like only 3 so far//kicked

Yeah, I had kinda started reading Mallory and Split's story already, your two friends are awesome pffft

Naah. My stuff is boring, it's like Madoka Magica(without magical girls and Kyubey lol) despair+ A LITTLE ace attorney logic + boring action + a bit of mild gore(I'm actually pretty afraid of gore, so no worries) +lame //kicked

AWWWWWWWWWWWW YIIS i'mma just stare at this for a VERY LONG TIME VB<

And wow 2009! XD I'm 100% positive anything I did in 2009 I'd have to redraw to be satisfied with PSHHH =7= for style change and anatomy sense reasons xD

BUT THIS LOOKS PRETTY LEGIT I wouldn't have known you started this so long ago 80 But you're right the Yfa does give it away if you lookit him hard enough > u >

hoHOH i'm not sure if I can pick a favorite panel HU HUH I LIKE EM ALL Q7Q
But overall, I just really like the format of this, and how the colors mesh well together, panel to panel >u>

SAVE ME A PRINT SO I KIN BUY IT //WEEPWEEP

STARE AT IT AND WHEN WE MEET, STARE AT THE ORIGINAL >8Y

SAME HERE except this one drawing which I guess I put a lot of effort into EVEN THOUGH I REMEMBER DOING SOME OF IT FROM THE INSIDE OF A CAR DURING AN ARCHERY COMPETITION SO WHO KNOWS. Also wtf I used to have pretty purples *points Chuuya* PRETTY PURPLES ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND IN COPICS.

It's actually pretty sad my art hasn't improved a lot for it to be needing a change? 8T;;;

AND HEHEHE YOU. I love panelling things like that, I LOVE THESE KIND OF COMPOSITIONS??? My favourite panels are Chuuya, Skye/Itsumo, Stripes's horn and Prince's tail HEHEH.

AND SURE if I run out I'll just print some more uwu <3
