New character for the Netheron universe c: Her name means "Priceless, with beauty" :D After a quick search on latin roots and spanish surnames~ Her design is actually not originally mine c: This was an adopt that :iconfehnryr: gave to me as a gift c: I tweaked it a bit to better suit the character~ her skin is a bit darker, and her hair has more streaks in it. Plus I added a skirt and changed the over cover a bit c: Hope the original artist doesn't mind! :D This was the original design: Steampunk Mechanic By Fehnryr-d8u9slo by Vivyi I'm sorry that she looks almost unrecognizable hahaha :XD:

Tried a few new things here too :D Hope you all like it hehehe~ :D I feel like my coloring style just went up 10x ever since I asked for some feedback on my critique LOL :XD: I've been trying to use references more often too, they really do help! :D And maaaan I think Design Doll is really helping me make better poses c: I was soooo frustrated before, you have no idea! :XD:

The background is meant to be colored surreally btw c: I colored it based on the appearance of the way the Huertarian world is described in the first book. :XD: I do like the colors, so I might keep it c: :XD:

:) I enjoy the coloring of this one quite a bit. And the lighting! You did a fantastic job on this ^.^ 

Does she have a profile or anything? Something with info on her as a character? Or not yet? :)

Ahhhh thank you <3 And thanks for your interest! :D

Ahhh, unfortunately I'm still working on one for her. She's a minor character, so she'll have a small background story, but she belongs in my universe known as "The Netheron Universe" which the planet is known as "Huerta."  But I do know she has attachments to one of my main characters (Marcilyn) and she *might* be a witch who happens to dabble in the art of tinkering, but that's still heavily in the works. What sort of attachment she'll have to Marcilyn, is still up to question. Friendship wise, romantic wise (as an ex-girlfriend), a co-worker and what not. [Marcilyn is Bisexual, and dated 3 people prior to meeting Estelle, who is her canon partner] I might develop her character further at one point, but she comes from the land of Heneurock, which is the same region that Marcilyn Locket originated from. I imagine Marcilyn and her knew each other at some point, but as they grew older they separated from each other. c:

As for personality wise, she's rebellious yet timid. I'll probably think of more personality traits later. For now, I'm focusing on the prequel, but at some point- I'd like to develop her character further as well c:

As for the universe she's in: She's apart of a victorian steampunk sci fi fantasy series known as the "Netheron Chronicles" which is a 3 book series revolving around Estelle Mari Violetta, the princess of Netheron, and is told through 3 different viewpoints: Estelle, Mae, and Marcilyn.

That's awesome :) Despite her being a minor character, you still have some back story in the works. I have yet to do that for many of my characters. 
I really like that you have the story length planned out and the world in which your characters exist have a general theme/feel to them. You have certainly gotten much further in writing than I have for Senseless. 

Do you have any tips on getting the draft done? I keep getting stuck on the order in which I'm placing events since I have a ton of time to work with. For now, I've just been writing out random scenes that cross my mind that I think could possibly happen in the story. 

(Sorry this took ages to respond to >.<)

I'm sure you'll get there one day though! It doesn't happen instantly, but rather takes time! :D I started this series when I was a senior in high school, after all! :)

Hmmmm... I do have a very specific way I handle writing out the first draft of the prequel. I'll be going over how I do my plannings as well, because they kinda go hand in hand. I hope that this advice is helpful to you, and please let me know if you have anymore questions. :) Please excuse me if I worded this weird- I have a very bad cold right now, and honestly should be in bed.

When I was writing the prequel, I started off with getting my ideas down in chronological order in a timeline. I do write ideas as a go in my plannings when writing the actual story- and then I really study them and make sure they work. Generally, this is only when I am done with my first draft, and I wouldn't recommend playing out with it too much when you're actually writing the story. Generally, I write out my timeline with very few details, only enough to paint a picture of how I want to do things.

Timelines in planning can really help because they give you an idea of how the story will begin and end. They are fussy creatures to write- but they are worth it in the end. However, (and this may sound crazy) if you're stuck at this one particular part of the timeline, feel free to break the timeline all together and write out anything you want to happen in the chapter. Then: the next chapter, you can continue writing based on the timeline. You can always come back and edit the chapter later, when you're done writing the story.

I recommend this because when you're writing a story, you want to get the ideas out of your head as quick as possible. Don't turn on your critic, but rather let your creativity spread and turn your draft into whatever it needs to be. You might hate your draft when you re-read it later- but this is natural.  The truth is, no first draft is perfect. Any big-name writer- Steven King especially- will tell you that. But once you're onto your editing: you can turn on that critic and let him completely abolish your draft and turn it into something incredible. But as for the first draft: anything goes.

So generally, the big things to focus on in a draft are a timeline in your plannings and writing freely to express yourself- rather than letting yourself be hammered by your critic.

Also: I want to share with you this wonderful group because I think it would really help you with the planning aspect: :iconnanoplotmo: If you look through their journals, they have a lot of really neat professional articles about planning, and even give free ref sheets for planning your characters as well as your plot, in super easy ways. It really worked for me, so I hope it does for you too :) I get a lot of my knowledge from some of their articles, though I do frequently read a lot of writing books as well, and tumblr writing articles. :D

(Awww it's okay LOL :XD: I tend to write super duper long paragraphs LMAO I hope I've helped regardless, and don't feel like your reply has to be as long as mine :heart:I hope I've helped regardless! )

Haha I'm so impatient >.< I have been working on writing more consistently now though. Seeing that it's possible and that other artists are posting chapters or comic pages of their stories only motivates me even more :) 

OMG >.< I appreciate you taking the time to give advice to me despite being sick! Thank you so much!! 

This helps so much! I never thought of doing a timeline. I started on a little bit ago after you suggested it and it helps clarify when things should happen. Makes all my ideas little more organized which is super nice. Not to mention...now I don't have to remember it all.

It's funny how when you keep a story in your head for so long, that your mind wants to keep changing it. But once you write it down, you're less inclined to change it and roll with the idea instead. 

I had a look at that group as well and their journals will most certainly help me out a lot.

Thank you!! :)

Haha, it's okay <3 I used to be the same at some point c: But you learn to adapt to it the more you do it. I hope your writing is more easy to work with now! :D

Haha, it's no problem <3 I just hope I made sense XD And I'm really glad I was able to help you c: Timelines have always helped me keep track of everything. c: I'm glad they're working for you as well c:

It's no problem, and again, I'm really glad I could help! :glomp:

Ahhh I'm still making one up c: I believe that she knows Marcilyn and has some sort of relation with her, either as a friend or ex-girlfriend. She's a Heneurockian, with a tradition to dye her hair strange colors. She might also be a witch- but I'm uncertain yet. She's still heavily in the works.

Is she by any chance capable of magic? She sort of looks like some sort of fire elemental! :la:
Also, I am absolutely LOVING your use of colour!! I can see that the references have been really helping! :heart:

Your use of colour has just gone through the roof, seriously :D I love this, it's so cool! And she looks like an awesome character - I'm sooo keen to meet her! (I love her old and new designs, her clothes remind me of what I wear in real life haha)

Hahahaha I know right? I dunno how :XD: Magic, I suppose~ :XD: I improved on basically everything within a few days :XD: lmao c: I read through a lot of my old tutorials, so I think that helped a bit :XD: So did a lot of other things hahaha c:

I haven't quite figured out what I want to do with her just yet. All I know is she's a Heneurockian, and she's somewhat rebellious by nature, because she dyes her hair different shades. And she has some relationship with Marcilyn, but I can't decide if she's her ex-girlfriend or not yet :XD: (Marcilyn as I'm finding, has a lot of relationship experience for her age. She's dated at least 3 people by the time she was 15, and for 2 of them, they just weren't ready for a relationship, and the other person [the only male] was very aggressive and just dated her for her business lol ) She was in a real rush for a relationship, so she quit dating people when she met Estelle... lol :XD: The crazy backstories that I have~

Nah, not magic, just hard work and dedication! It all has to pay off some time :D Yeah, tutorials can be really useful! 

Haha yes that sounds amazing! No, they're not crazy at all - they're so in-depth and realistic. It really makes for some unique, well-rounded characters :) And even if they were to be a bit crazy, I think it takes a bit of craziness and eccentricity to create a really memorable character.

You're welcome. ^^ I agree. And it's good to experiment, you can't improve if you don't try something new now and then. c:
