Siblings by akitku Siblings by akitku
This is a small gift art for joolita of two characters from her wonderful comic: Of Conquests and Consequences which you should absolutely check out! :)
I haven't had much time to draw recently so I'm really glad I had a chance to finish this one!

I want to thank you again for this drawing. I'm sorry it took me so much time to comment on devart.

This is the first fanart to OCaC we've ever received and it came at this very crucial point in time, when me and my co-author were panicking that there will be this huge summer break in the comic and people will get upset with us for it. So your painting brought us a lot of hope that it will all be ok in the end. Huggle! 

Also the fact how well this drawing captures the personalities of these characters. This is what impressed me the most with your painting and all other art we've received, that people really get the characters and like them, especially Uene, she got most of the fanart. Thank you for following the comic and for your unwavering support. Llama Emoji-10 (Shy) [V1]

Ah don't worry about it at all! 
You're very welcome, I'm so glad that you liked the fanart and that you say I got them right. THey're lovely characters. Actually I don't read that many webcomics but I do read some and yours is my absolute favourite by far! It's the only one which I really look forward to the updates rather than just scrolling through casually. The characters, the setting, the plot, it really draws me in, it's highly original and I just love your subtle, non-judgmental storytelling style (if that makes sense). So please keep creating and you can be sure I will be reading it! :D :hug:

I like how your style is slightly different here to resemble Joolita's works more. The shading is very good here and I like the frame, I know its a minor detail bu somehow it caught my attention :) I hope Joolita likes it! I certainly do!

Thanks so much! I'm very glad you like it. The frame was a fun touch. I should add frames to my work more often I think! :)

Thank you! You should see the expressions the characters make in the comic - Joolita is great at depicting emotions!

These characters are so lovely and the background is really nice. I love the ruddiness on the boy's cheeks! What a pity it is that you have little time to draw :( (Sad)

Thank you! The characters and the story are indeed very interesting! The background is maybe a bit simple, but I liked this notion of desolate dry landscape for these characters.
Yes, I do wish I had some more time...but it should get better soon! :)

I love the frame around this, it's so neatly painted and the contrast between gold, white and blue is beautiful in the frame- this is such a lovely present! Anyone would be blessed to receive it! :D

Thank you! :hug: I've tried to keep the colour-palette reminiscent of Joolita's work. The frame was a lot of fun, I rarely do such frames in my work.

You have certainly not lost your touch! A very strong portrayal, although I have not yet seen the comic. The border is interesting- reminds me of the archway you used in the last picture, and of devices used by artists in the Renaissance..

The comic is really worth having a look at - it's one of the most original and thoughtful comic narratives I have seen  in a long time.
I'm glad the picture looks ok! Thank you! :)

I know this comic! You captured both characters really well! As well as the colours joolita profoundly uses in the comic. The frame is beautiful....

I'm so glad you think I got them right. They both had this awkwardness about them that I really wanted to portray! :) Awkward siblings was my working title! ;)

This is just so awesome. These character designs are so awesome! Love their hair and their clothing, which to me is an interesting fantasy style. :D The dunes are painted really nicely too; the shading is subtle yet I can feel the 3D-ness. And the most stunning part is the circular frame you've added around the characters--it's so detailed that I can't believe you did it traditionally!

I'm so glad you like this one! Yeah, Joolita's designs are awesome. Her characters are very original and believable and their designs are a wonderful blend of historicity and fantasy in my opinion. I'd strongly recommend the comic!
I'm happy you like the frame, I rarely put frames on my pictures but for some reason I wanted one for this one.
