Gaaaaah I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS GOT A DD BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH. Thanks to everyone for their favs, comments, and general interest, you are all AWESOME!!

This page here is from my graphic novel, Midwinter, which my bestie ~J-Cleo and I have been working on for a couple years now. The first chapter is scheduled for release in early November and to be debuted at Anime Nebraskon--but until then, my gallery has a few goodies if you want to learn more about the characters!

Again, thanks so much to everyone for the feedback, and especially to ^rydi1689 for featuring me!! :heart: DFTBA everyone!


Sooo, I really wanted to enter the "Train Your Brain" contest with a graphic novel page, but didn't really have any that were recent or good enough (in my eyes) so I picked a page from our revamped pilot of Midwinter! I would've felt wrong not entering one at all, seeing as it's what I want to do with my life. Changed the category to what it should be, since the contest is over!

Nox is facing off against the hospital's resident Abjurer, Garrett Walters. I wonder how they'll fare against each other...? :)

This page provided a lot of challenges--most of them, ironically, in the last stages of it. (Toning and onward) It took me the better portion of... *looks at clock* 9 hours for just that stage 8D;; But now that I have a better handle on how to tackle those issues, I hope it'll be smoother when I actually do the pages.

Overall, while I hope I'll be able to use this in the final version, it may end up being another test/experiment... but it's very close to what you'll be seeing in the finished product, I think!

I don't know if I'm entirely happy with how it came out, but I'm hoping I'm just being too hard on myself. :iconlazycryplz: I guess we'll see. Wish me luck in the contest!

:facebook: You'll see more art sooner at Midwinter's Facebook page! :)

[Midwinter] Battle Between Casters is just one of the many jewels that you can find in =Deus-Nocte's gallery! From fascinating character designs to amazing use of perspective, this page shows all the love and care that the artist poured into making it and it's a great sample of the quality the finished manga will have!
