The Tiny One

Hello dear readers! Welcome to this short, short edition of Fan Art. My third semester ended this past Wednesday and my new one starts next Monday. Not a lot of free time, but at least it lets me rest a bit and work on personal stuff. So this week we have two regular submissions and four comic pages. Let's get on to it!

Featured this week is Ariali June's Ragnarok Online submission illustrating a female merchant from the game. Not having played the game, I assume this is one of the game's character classes. There are a few things I wanted to point out about this picture. First, I like the color palette. Although barely any color is fully saturated, they all work very well together. The drawing itself is also quite good, with a nice variety in line width. The background is very simple, but the horizontal box there adds a hint of horizon, something that will break the monotony of having a lone character in the middle of the canvas. My only concern is that it seems to be quite centered when it could have been a little higher or lower and offer much more dynamism. Of course, we would need to test it to see if it would be better or not.

The second piece to be showcased this week is Junior Mclean's follow-up to his Zelda piece from last week. After finding the three pendants, Link can finally claim the Master Sword. This time around the forest looks much denser, while retaining the mystical lighting effects. The only thing bothering me with this piece is that the character looks like he is standing on the edge of the image. Having him a bit higher would help in that regard, although I must admit it took me a while to notice it; the viewer's eyes are drawn to the sword and the pendants, which are placed in a strong point of the picture, at least in regards to the famous rule of thirds.

In the comics, the heroes enter the seemingly abandoned cabin near Mt Kolts, and the objects in the house make Edgar day-dream about his childhood. Meanwhile, About Locke shows our unfortunate zero crawling in the mud while the heroes go on with the plot. What will happen next? Stay tuned for more submissions and more comics next week. Of course, I will need new material if we are to continue updating this column weekly! Seeing as my new free day will be Friday, expect upcoming updates to be your first weekend treat of the week!
