Finally got a new scanner :D I really do feel uncomfortable drawing lineart digitally so it's great when I can revert back to traditional means to quickly and comfortably draw lineart :D

I think the sort of technique I used for this pic suits Chloe, especially with all the messy rough paper texture the scanner so awesomely picked up XD My old scanner could never do that! Chloe belongs to a Disc-world-esque environment ^_^ Well, it was after looking at Terry Pratchett's types of characters that I came up with her.

And nope, there's no hat in this pic, instead there's another character. Well, I've not quite made a final design on this one yet so the finished product may not be the same, but still, when I have the time, I have full intentions of making a web comic of Chloe. Just ... y'know.. university and all that. Plus other comics I have to do. But oh lawdie there is so much to Chloe that I want to share! And it would be a great way for me to exercise story-writing and such and experiment with new techniques!

I think I'll post up a WIP of this, if peeps are interested, or even if they're not XD

I hope you enjoy this pic! I certainly did! Finally I can get a decent scanner!

Unfortunately I don't know what you're referring to because I've never seen Soul Eater =/ I just wanted a big red ugly monster thing with horns in the picture XD

That facial expression is so BRILLIANT!
And by curiosity, do you outline your works in pen or just upload the pencil sketch and work with that?

I love Chloe Greyspoone, she's an awesome character, so I'm happy to see her again!

I really like the way the pencil sketch is showing through, and the chalky marks on the floorboards - is makes it look really natural and textured. And the way that Chloe's hair is coloured too, I like the lilac colour.

Awesome as always! <3

I really look forward to starting the webcomic about her. The drawing style and techniques nicely matches the type of world she lives in methinks.

I'm looking forward to seeing it! I really like the drawing style you've used, I think it fits in well with the Discworld-esque setting you described Chloe being from.

Somebody's going to get in trouble from the older witches; if you can see the floor it's not Chloe's room, she's summoning the eldritch creatures and it's not even in her own room!

Eh ... nothing Chloe does will please her aunt, so why bother trying?

If you're going to Fail, then Fail so hard it becomes an Epic Win due to incomprehensible levels of 'how the heck did you even do that!?'

oh dear, is the trap door monster what she was expecting to show up? seems perhaps not, looks like the spell is getting away from her. hope it doesn't cause too much trouble X) really love the coloring, and the lighting on the floor :) also is this post hat?

This pic isn't accurately re-telling the story, seeing as I've not finalized anything yet. She might not even be the age she is in this pic! It was just something I wanted to draw at the time with whatever came to mind :D

I don't think I actually timed this one -_- really should try some time. I guess it's at most 10 hours, though most of that time would probably be just nitpicking over tiny details. The general colouring wasn't that slow.
