Rare Charm Bracelet, And Lizzy's Diary - A Journey For Hope: The Front Cover

Hellooooooo, Jamalamadingdong... oh, for the luvva Pete, PLEASE forget I said that! X0

Yeah, I'm really crazy tonight. o.O It's Karalee, I know the writing style is really funky. I'm just kinda hyper and all.... O.O *shrug*

So the HP computer is still in the shop, figuratively speaking. Literally speaking, it's still in the mail, waiting to be sent to the right place! >.< Whatta headache. Mailing address mixup, something... I dunno.

SO. 

Today's RIM is the Rare Charm Bracelet, available Monday only in the Cocoa Hut's shop... which is called something I can't remember at the moment, and this computer is unable to look up.... (Processing speeds. Can't play AJ on it.)

 It's being sold for 1,200 Gems, which makes the placement of the item odd, to say the least. It's being sold in the Cocoa Hut, but the original is sold in Jam Mart Clothing, with a price that belongs in Epic Wonders! o.o

The second-and-last topic I'm going to cover in this post, is that Gracie's commission from me is half done! :) This is the front cover of Lizzy's Diary - A Journey For Hope! :D I really hope you like it!


I used Adobe Draw for the base drawing, but needed to turn to another drawing program, the ever-useful iPad app, YouDoodle, for the shading and blur effects. The short gray figure you requested to be seen through the window IS there... it didn't quite turn out the way I would have liked, though. :L

Now on to drawing the Cast Of Characters.... I'd really like a bit of reference to go on with the character design. I don't want them to look all average height-weight-shape and all, like they come from a cookie cutter. o.o That's something every illustrator learns to avoid in their line of work. On the other paw, I don't want to draw them in a way that contradicts the story.

I know you're reluctant to draw me a rough thumbnail, but it would be an enormous help. Still, if your answer is definitely no, I might be able to do it with a thorough description of their specifics. Perhaps the Jamaasian High Questionnaire would help! :D I find it very useful in creating my OCs/making sure they're well-rounded characters! Naturally, the character trait questions can be left out. :P Just the physical appearances are needed for our purposes.

Please leave the answers in a comment on my blog! :D I'll get on it as soon as I am able!

I have to go eat supper now. ;) Goodbye, Jammers! I'll see you all later!

(Hopefully the computer will be back by next week... -_-)

  1. OH.

    MY.

    GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    KARA THAT IS AMAZING

    AMAZING

    I LITTERALLY WAS JUST STARING AT IT

    MY PARENTS WERE LIKE: WOW O.O

    OMG XD

    *Turns off caps lock*

    I actually like it how it is :D! I honestly don't think it's half way done o.o, I think it's pretty much finished. It's sooooooooooooo amazing.

    My only suggestion, would be to maybe make her skin a tad more tan? Just a tad CX

    You are indeed, amazingly.

    Wonderfully.

    Beyond words,

    Talented! Keep it up my friend!

    As for the family image, I totally understand! I think I could draw a rough sketch for that, I just had trouble putting "my brain on paper" for the front cover.

    But you, however, put my brain with the front cover on your iPad.

    Like.

    Your a mind reader. AND EVEN ADDED MORE DETAIL, AND AWESOMENESS, THEN I HAD IN MY BRAIN

    (Whoa whoa, Gracie, calm down, your getting too excited)

    I'd be happy to fill out your Jamaasian High questionnaire!

    Although, it may take me, erm, 2 days to fill out all.. Math.. Idk, 7 characters (correct me if I'm wrong, I don't feel like counting XDD)

    Amazing job! I can't wait to see the family photo when it's finished :) I'm sure it will be great!

    Remember, God made YOU!

    1. Oh, and I meant that the commission is half-done because I still need to do one more picture, the Cast Of Characters portrait. ;) The front cover is complete. I wouldn't have sent it to you unfinished. :D

  2. *holds in squeal because parents are trying to sleep* *makes CX face and does the 'fangirl wiggle' out of excitement*

    I am SOOOOOOOOO glad you like it!! CX CX CX

    Unfortunately... I can't. ):l Wish I could, but it's an effect of using the programs I did... and more specifically the shading. It'd be impossible to do without messing it up, given that it's layers of transparent black paintbrush put OVER the skin and other materials.... Yeah. o_o I'm really sorry, but the skintone alteration can't be done. :'(

    It's going to take me a while to draw the family portrait, too... I'm a bit worried about the Jan. 1st deadline! Meep! >.< CX

    It's okay, just send it to me as soon as you can, please. :) I'll do my best! :D

    1. Heheee XD!

      Skin tone- that's okay :)! I don't want to make it complcated :D

      Deadline- Actually, I was thinking more- erm.. December 28th? Is that possible?

      XDD just kidding! January 12th ish, would be good as a deadline. The publishing stage may have to be pushed to early February, due to my laziness in editing.. o.o I need to get on that. Like. Tomorrow. 😁

      THATS YOUR GOAL GRACIE. EDIT AS MANY CHAPTERS AS YOU CAN TOMORROW. DONT YOU WANT TO SELL THE FIRST COPY BY THE END OF JANURARY??? GET ON IT LADY!

      That'd be like Dancing speaking to me.. 😳

      Yah, I'm tired. XDD

      Goodnight, comment to ya in the morning 😉 LOL
