Sleeping Sketch

I might color this one or I might not... anyway, I just wanted to do a cute picture with everybody sleeping(maybe after some sort of party? Or maybe a successful job where they actually get paid!)

Adele, Lillia, Alec, Penelope, Claus, Galilee, Darcy, Melena, Horace.

Character Profiles and the launch of Meggido News

I have just created the Blog Meggido News.
Here I will be posting all of the formal information such as character profiles, world information, and things about the story. eventually the comic may be posted there as well(need to figure it out...)

Anyway, decent character profiles have been added, please check it out!

Main Character Combo!


These are the 3 main characters of my current stories I'm working on currently.
Left to right, Adele(Meggido), Liam, Karin(Transpose Operator).
So far the story that Liam is in hasn't really been posted about because it's not quite as thought out as it should be by now. It doesn't even have a name yet... I'd like to at least have an outline before I make a blog for it, and as it seems like it's going to be a long story I have no idea when that's going to be. Plus I'm already fully loaded on stuff to do at the moment...
I really like seeing them all together though, it's pretty neat :D

Lillia Sketch and Asuka's web site

My wonderful friend Asuka has an equally wonderful website that went up a few years ago. She's a comic artist/illustrator currently living in Japan. she has a lot of Quality stuff so I heartily recomend you guys checking her out!
Her link has been added to the list for future viewing.


A colored sketch of Lillia. This is basically her default outfit. Still not completely sure about the colors, but we'll see. Lillia doesn't really seem to care what she wears or what colors she wears, so a lot of it is a reflection of what others(namely Galilee) pick out for her

Alec Colored Sketch


This is literally the first time I've colored him since he was created, which is absolutely horrible considering he's been one of the main characters for such a long time.
This isn't a picture of his regular outfit, more like just something he'd wear. He likes wearing all kinds of colors, so it's not as easy to nail down a pallet for him as opposed to the other characters.

Also, I've resolved to try and post a colored sketch every day, or at least every other day. So look forward to it!

Darcy Sketch and new Links

Color sketch of Darcy. I realized I haven't done a lot of color drawings so characters that I've had for years don't have color schemes yet. So here's the first of more to come. Darcy wears a lot of earthy colors, it helps to complement his natural coloring(hair, skin, and eyes). He normaly wears an off white button-up shirt under his vest, but it wasn't drawn in the sketch...

Also, my MCAD buddy Ed has a fantastic comic blog that's worth checking. If you're into Independent comics then you'll be very happy to find his blog.

My MCAD teacher Zak Sally also has a great publishing company and the link to his site has been added to the list. Also a treasure trove of Independent comics, so be sure to check him out!

So for the Jin Arc(6th one) an idol singer that was mentioned is going to become a character. Galillee, Horace, Melena, and Penelope are fans and even like doing the little dance that this idol has made up, much to Darcy's dismay. She doesn't have a name yet but I did a concept sketch so you can kinda get an idea of what she's like.

Don't really have a lot thought out about her yet as she appears much later in the story(and literally was created yesterday...) but there will be more on her later.

Summer Adele Pictures

Been thinking about a new outfit design for Adele '~' not to sure...(Copic turned out a little scary...)

From a scene that's going to happen later, it's after Alec joins the group and they go to the Sky Pirate Nation. Alec runs out of pills and is practically dying, Adele has to find more somehow.

Adele doesn't really have a default weapon, but after I got this figure I wanted to draw her with a huge gun. She always uses guns but the size and style hasn't been decided yet.

And that's the last of the summer pictures of Adele (That I felt worth showing). I had been wanting to post them more periodically but never really found the time to.


Quincy was one of the first characters I ever created for the Meggido universe. He was originally a partner of Adele's when there were only 3 other characters (Adele, Lillia, Claus). He wields a large sword and has a score to settle with Alec, won't say too much about it now as it would ruin the suspense.
Quincy, his son and his wife over 10yrs ago.

He's good with kids, him and Lillia get along very well.

From a flashback scene... it makes me baww every time...

The oldest sketches that I have of him to date(So crappy looking...). I have even more Ancient ones but can't get to them right now. Strangely enough, even though everyone else's designs have changed a lot, Quincy's have stayed the same for almost 2yrs now.

Never finished the gun that Alec was holding... he never uses a gun really anyway. Quincy's sword is a broadsword and not a samurai sword either.

He originally comes into the story during the 2nd chapter. He's after Adele to begin with for the bounty on her head, but ends up backing off due to Lillia and the fact that he finds Alec again since he's been searching for him for quite some time. After this run-in Alec's more brutal nature and part of his back story will be revealed.
Quincy will show up later a few times, and then after the time jump, but I haven't decided if he plays a role in the final battle or not.

It's kinda sad that he isn't as much of a main character as he was supposed to be, but I think it's better this way. Hopefully I can bring you some more quality images of him later, I really don't draw him as much as I should...

Group Pictures

I haven't talked much about Galillee yet, she's the mechanic for the Alto(The ship that the group uses throughout the story, Horace is the captain.) She'll get her own post eventually.
I liked this concept and may elaborate on it for a future composition.

Long Overdue Chibi Pictures

Vocaloid Chibi group, these guys are so cute :D
Left to right: Miku,Kaito,Len,Rin,Meiko.
I think I wanna use these starfish-chibi body types more often.

Uh-oh! This' a spoiler pic if I ever saw it... think of it more like a possible outcome for now, lol.

A Halloween group, I know it's a little early, but I couldn't resist.

Transpose Operator blog launch!

Okay, well that was fast! I came up with a name for the android story-It's called Transpose Operator, and now has an official blog.

If I do massive updates I may talk about it here, but for the most part you'll need to check it if you want to find out more.

It has been added to the links list, so please refer to it for further notice.

New Link Added! Welcome to the Internet Jen!

My friend Jen just recently made an illustration blog. Go check out her stuff as it is absolutely wonderful~! She uses mostly traditional media which is oh so nice :)

This link has been added to the links list to the right if you need to find it in the future.

Changing Wind and Preview

Working on a new top image that will probably take a week or so. Haven't done much yet, but just wanted to post an in progress drawing of it so far.
It feels like forever since I've drawn Meggido Characters! I hope they're not mad at me... They are my main story after all...
I just got a little side-tracked coming up with/refining other stories and characters.... *nervous laughter*

I'm gonna try and divide up my creative time so that I can come up with 3 simultaneous stories to work on. Meggido of course is the main one, the still unnamed Andoroid story is the 2nd one, and the 3rd one is about supernatural stuff and of course has no name yet. I'm going to make seperate blogs for each of the supsequent stories, and this main one will be for Meggido and random art stuff only. I'll be sure to post links etc, when that happens.

Color and Outfit experiments


Some color/design studies for the andoroid story that I'm working on in conjunction to Meggido.
Somehow Cleo ended up looking larger than she's supposed to, and Luka ended up smaller and stiffer than he was supposed to be... eh, it's just a sketch...

Sketchy Miku

Crappy Miku sketch, but I felt that I needed to update.
Vocaloids are my new obsession :)
