This is normally something I would keep in my personal thoughts because I love this page and this community for it has always been around me and helped me come to where I am now. But I've been somewhat oblivious to the changes due to my graphic novel project and my absence.

Whenever I stumble across the front pages of DeviantArt, I'm being slammed in the face by pictures that have a quality of MySpace selfies and free porn websites and sometimes stolen artwork squeezed inbetween all of that mess. Deviants' usage behaviour seemed to have changed as well in a way. The page, to me, appear desolate or ebbing off.
I remember the time when I took a glimpse on DA's browsing pages and saw amazing pieces of artwork battling themselves across the rankings on the site. It was an astonishing conglomerate of highly inspiring and vastly coloured original art. And this isn't only the popular section I am talking about here now. I mean everything from forums to newly submitted works too. People who looked upon the pictures seemed to invest more time and dedication to the pieces as well. The page was sparking with life! It has a momentum that was remarkable for this page and I felt proud and happy to have been a part of it all.

Now my question here is, since I don't want to judge any of the people who upload certain images, if I am wrong about this. How do you feel? Has the quality of the page changed or has it even become too cumbersome for users? Has DeviantArt changed in a way that makes people go somewhere else or has the interest in art shifted? Naturally, things trend and come to an end sometimes. And many people rely on quicker and easier to access ways for social communication and art sharing.

It's difficult to open up for such a dialogue without appearing judgmental.
I personally feel happy about being here and seeing you around, commenting on my pictures and giving me so much joy and courage to keep on going. I will also continue sharing my art with you here and so should you to keep this page alive and going, should my concerns be of some truth.

Anyway, stay awesome and be creative! :)

RUN
Whenever you're entering weekend but you see Monday coming closer. °^°

Maybe you can come up with a better title for it. ;P
Some random practise for composition too keep my wrist loose for the next graphic novel volumes. :)

Myre - Chronicles of Yria Cover Full
Here is the full cover spread of my graphic novel, Myre - Chronicles of Yria. I had some more time to make make corrections on it as the first cover concept was lacking the symbolism and narrative that I wanted to achieve with the first story. After pondering what I felt was wrong with the first concept, I came to the conclusion that made me change the mood of it and add a narrative that the reader will learn to understand as the story progresses.
Myre is soon to be released! The print production is fully going now and I'm super excited about it! More updates follow soon!
Thank you for looking, commenting and sharing! It means the world to me! <3

Myre - Chronicles of Yria Cover
Note that this isn't the final cover but the mere front picture featuring both Myre and Varug. I didn't feel like posting it with all the font and stuff. :)
Happy new year, everyone! I hope you all had a lovely and joyous start into the new year and found many things for yourself to look forward to. I wish you all a great and smooth start and that you stay strong and motivated to accomplish what you worked for! My start has been really busy, as usual, but it's great nonetheless. :)

I've been pondering about the cover art for quite a while now. Even during the work on the inside pages, I tried to come up with an idea that would suit the pilot of Myre's story. In the end, the solution has always been there right in front of me. Back in 2012, I created a piece of Myre and Varug standing on a mountain peak, overlooking some plains of Yria, in a sort of fancy dream that this may one day be the cover of the graphic novel.
You can find the first idea here:
Myre - Journeys Dawn by AlectorFencer

Back then, whilst I was really wishing for seeing Myre as a complete project, I had no idea that four years later, I would be going back there to look upon this painting as the actual option for the first cover of the Myre series. A lot of things have changed since then. Beginning with the character design, especially that of Varug's, who turned from a mere creature into a real sentient character that is supposed to express feelings as well, to the overall complexion of Myre. I decided to take this idea and repaint it, plus adding more of the adventurous essence and reducing the convoluted background to focus more on both the characters. The complete picture will also contain more elements that will stretch themselves throughout the series and which you will learn about more as you read through it.
I'm really happy today that I came so far to actually be sitting on the cover of the first completed book of Myre. Yesterday, I met the printers to whom I passed the imposition press for the production. This cover will be sent after in the next two days whilst Myre is already in production. :)

Reyna's Day Off
Not really a day off because you never get a rest day when you're a fruit merchant on Yria. ;D They at least make sure to never waste those rare goods. :)
A big character commission that was a perk in my "Myre - Chronicles of Yria" crowdfunding campaign two and a half years ago.
From a list of 14 different types of Yrians, the ones who pledged on "Champion of Yria" could choose one style to have their character drawn in the style of my graphic novel. Many of my commissioners wanted to be a merchant.
This one is for   forfaox
He chose to have his character, Reyna, be a merchant with a well running business and rare things as well. So many want to be merchants, I might make a whole story of the Life of an Yrian Merchant one day to show how tough their lives are. :)
