Fan fiction is up

Yay, Sarah and Jareth!

More art for ‘Of Nowhere and Neverwhen’. It's far from perfect, but I'm going to call it done. .____.;

I will start posting the story some day. But for now, here is an excerpt from the scene that goes with the picture. Because I’m generous.

-----
“Goblin King, send your glowy light ball over here. I think I’ve found the way out.”

Jareth’s face was caught in a disdainful grimace, as though he couldn’t decide whether he was insulted or annoyed. Hmm. Probably insulted and annoyed. Serves him right, she thought uncharitably. Sarah knew the crystal held far more dangerous potential than she had suggested, but at the moment it was doing little more than floating and glowing. It’s not my fault that he’s currently using it as a flashlight.

She tried again.

“Oh, great and powerful Goblin King, will you please send your Glowy Light Ball of Doom over here to aid the failing eyes of a frail mortal girl.”

After an apparent internal war, in which he likely weighed the pros and cons of cutting his losses and deserting one sarcastic mortal female and finding his own way out, Jareth stepped up behind her and directed the crystal ahead with a flourish. Once doing so, even he saw the brilliance in her solution.

“Clever girl,” he said wonderingly.

After days of constant tension, Sarah could not help the laughter that burst forth.

If he had said something like that to her a month prior, she might have taken the compliment in stride. As it happened though, Toby had nagged, begged, and pled for her to take him to see the dinosaur movie Karen was certain would give him nightmares. Sarah, of course, thought that was complete nonsense and purchased tickets for an opening day matinee. She was a wonderful big sister, truly.

Sarah had nearly laughed herself out until she glanced up and took in Jareth’s disgusted sneer. The thought that popped into her head was just too ridiculous, and she doubled over in mirth.

“I take it back,” Jareth announced, “You’re an addle-brained twit.”

Yes, that was a Jurassic Park reference. Don't look at me like that.

Materials: Copic Multliners, markers, and opaque white; gouache, white gel pen, and a metallic silver stamp thingy

Ah, when it comes to creative endeavors, I always have doubts. And then I go, 'oh well, I'm posting it anyway.'  >>;

And thank you! Sass and humor I can do. If only I could write something serious or angsty for five minutes...

Very proper attitude.  Pretty sure that explains half of my stuff right now......  *shaking head sadly* The "Why Not?" factor always wins in the end.

:D Sass and humor are immensely important in this fandom.  :-) It makes the world go round :D As for serious and angsty, I'm right there with you.  Not a serious bone in me.  Or rather, there is for several moments, and then I think, but then it could be this! And off into the ridiculous I go without a backward thought.  It's okay :D

Yep! It's usually, 'I spent x amount of time on this. I think others should have to suffer and see it, even if I hate it.' :B

Anti-serious for the win! Oh, I do the exact same thing. A lot of the time, my story ideas start out as something dramatic and serious, and then my brain goes, 'hey, you know what would be funny, instead?' And then CHAOOOSS. Except for those stories that start out as a funny thought and stay that way. They're chaos from the beginning. c:

*Shakes head* Yes, something like that.  'This looks good enough.  Why not? This must count for something....' ;-)

Yesss!!!! :D A little chaos goes a long way to make everything better :-) Why should it be boring and serious, especially when we can make it far more interesting? :D I say, "Let there be chaos!" And then eat the cake (chocolate) later for more inspiration.

This was actually the easiest part! I colored the area around it with the same colors as the foreground and just shaded it like any other sphere and then splatter painted. Magic!

Personally, I love this! There's so many little details that just complete this. Now I shall single them out one by one!
-The afore-mentioned asymmetrical pupils are a really neat touch
- I simply adore his cape, the folds are perfectly shaded
-Jareth's other wardrobe, mainly the frill on the sleeves really makes my day. I don't know why, it just does XD His hand too, great foreshortening
- Sarah's hair looks very nice, I'm quite jelly of it
- The little blurb of story made me laugh. It was well written, and just finished the picture wonderfully.
There, I think that's it!
Oh wait! - The background is really cool!
All in all, love it!

:blush: Thank you! I'm glad you like it!

I always try to pay special attention to Jareth's eyes. >> They're my favorite.

I kind of surprised myself that the foreshortening worked out at all, especially since I didn't reference anything for it. @_@

Sarah got a little body in her hair because I can't draw just plain straight hair to save my life. :B

I just wish the rest of the story would pop from my head to my word document like this scene did!

It's a very deserving piece.

They're very intense. I love 'em too!

It's looks great! Honestly, my attempts at it are awful. The way you did it, it looks so naural.

A little floof is good :D

I'm sure it'll come to you eventually :) This little bit here was grand!

Ah, I only have a passing familiarity with Witchblade. Nope, it's just a glove/gauntlet. An important glove, but just a glove.
