So I haven’t gone to work on the novel for a while now, and I’m beginning to feel guilty for the slacking, but somehow I just haven’t gotten into the mood to work at all lately.
And when I say ‘work’, I’m referring to my actual project. However, I’m still looking around the inter-webs for inspiration, tutorials, and various other techniques I could use when I do get around to start working. I’m still on the planning stage, and I’m gotten around 12 pages planned out so far for Fabulae Orsa.
But for today, I’d like to introduce an artist that I just found out about (literally about 30 minutes ago) on smackjeeves.
Zelda C. Wang doesn’t seem to be employed at the moment in any company in particular, but her artwork is very soft and light. The characters and layout of her comics, thought at times I can tell they need some work as they can be a little confusing, shows how talented she is.
But what drew me into her artwork was the Classical Greek theme. Her stories are loosely based on Greek Mythology, and though the idea may seem a little clichéd, like using the moon, stars, planets, etc. I guess you can call me old-fashioned because I’m a sucker for things like that ever since I started watching SailorMoon.
One thing I enjoyed after reading through the entire series she has up on her website thus far, is the fact that she uses Classical Greek garments, armor, and architecture. I can tell immediately that she has, at the least, done some research and homework prior to starting her projects.
In any case, her colored works are still beautiful, though after a while her characters start to look similar, especially the men, as I feel she lacks the skill to draw non-feminine males. Though it’s fine with me, that is a matter of personal taste I suppose.
