You're a Princess, and I'm an Inventor... by Vivyi You're a Princess, and I'm an Inventor... by Vivyi
What good am I, if I'm just a commoner?

Admittedly, this element gets played a lot in the comic. This scene is sorta based on the comic itself~ Marcilyn constantly staying awake because she keeps thinking about Estelle, and their relationship as commoner and princess. In the prequel, their friendship is already established at the beginning of the book, so Marcilyn wouldn't even worry about her being a commoner. Maybe slightly so - but it's not as huge as the comic's elements.

So here we have poor Marcilyn staying awake at night, unable to focus even on reading. xD She's sleeping in her room in Estelle's castle, which she left the sheets purple because she wanted to embrace the "Netheronian colors."

Sorry if the perspective is off... I'm trying to get better at it, but it's hard xD It's sorta an odd perspective hehehehe :giggle:

Anyway! Hope you enjoy <3

( Critiques are welcome btw! )

Poor Marci xD I feel so bad for her... she did the same exact thing I did years ago. LMAO

Eventually ;u; It sadly won't be the prequel, but definitely the sequel. And the comic makes up for the  sad elements of the prequel, so I'm trying to work on both of them and get them done around the same  time xD

Thank yoooou <333 :glomp: Hahaha, I love drawing expressions, and I think I'm starting to finally get used to drawing them in this style. I used to be really good at expressions in an anime style, but transitioning to a more cartoon style was a lot harder.

Awww the first time I see this picture, I didn't have a clear picture but I definitely can feel the emotion from my screen. It's just sad and fragile, the colors and expression are just perfect. I think that's the most important thing about a painting, that the message is delivered, and you did just great Viv!
Hmm... a little critique, perhaps you can improve more in lighting-shading, to make the picture more "alive" by adding reliefs and folds, especially to the pillow, bed, and sheaths, since they look kinda flat.
But I love this already, one of your best I think :hug:

Awwww thank yoou Lydia <3 :glomp: And thank you for the critique too! I'll definitely keep those things in mind :) I'm always happy to receive a critique! I've also thought the perspective was off as well, do you have any suggestions for improving that as well? c:

Oh I just noticed that :D I'm not really good at perspective, I usually learn perspective from photos. As for this picture, at first I was thinking that adding more folds and shadow can create a good perspective too. Hmm..

Yeah, I think maybe that could be one way of doing it... I dunno, it could be the angle ^^;

Ooooo yes, that's very helpful. I especially like the one where she's reading the book. If I ever re-do this picture, I'll keep that perspective in mind :D
