Well, I guess I'm not going to bed. XD
You see, on November 13th, 2008, I was doing this homework at 12 AM and worked on it for two hours. It was basically about me. I brought up something about the story I wrote in 4th grade, called Magic Misty and the New School of Ghouls
, which I'm sure a few of you have heard of. Suddenly, I was hit with this brilliant
I should rewrite it! NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month; google it if ya don't know what that is) was this month, I could start the two other stories I tried too...so...I decided to rewrite it.
I started on the 13th. I currently have over 21,000 words and am shooting to have 30,000 before the end of the week.
Anyway, I decided to draw Magic in one of the outfits she ends up buying in the story. The sleeves aren't suppose to be matching, just so you don't point that out.
The background is really basic, since I don't really have skillz in making backgrounds. Will try doing better ones in the future.
I tried a slightly different colouring style. I used the burn tool, like I usually do and avoided the dodge tool. I then smudged and blurred the shadows too. I actually rather liked the way it came out.
I particularly LOVE the colouring on the plaid skirt. BTW, that was plaid pattern I made in Photoshop. If people are interested, I'll upload a pack of 'em. I'll be making more, since Magic is a huge fan of plaid.
This isn't the usual outfit she wears. She usually wears something that looks more like she's a Catholic School Girl who goes to a school that's stylish.
There are some differences between this Magic and the original one. Besides from the drawing styles...
1.) This Magic doesn't like the original. She does have a star, but I won't tell you wear. You'll just have to wait until I upload the cover art.
2.) Instead of two curled hairs out to the sides (WTF was I thinking), her hair is wavy and goes straight down. Diamond Spook & Magic Misty (Originals)
3.) Actual uniforms of the schools are TOTALLY different. Plus, the characters don't need to wear them all the time in the current story.
A few chapters of the story will be up after NaNoWriMo, if I get anywhere close to completing it.
And before you ask, I do think I took the "Misty" part from Misty from Pokémon (despite I hated her character then and I still don't like her character now O_o). I think it was the first name that popped in my head. It's Magic's last name though, in this story, at least.
There is an alternate universe version of this story, as I'm gonna call it. The prologue is up on here, somewhere in my gallery. Many of the characters from this story will be making an appearance, but either with redesigns or new personalities.
Hope you enjoy.
Flat colour/Line art did in Flash, as usual. Everything else was Photoshop~
