E - Files: Statt up og dansa!


Have you ever heard of a site called Gaiaonline before?

It basically is an online hangout with games and message boards where you create a your own character and dress it up the way you want and whatever. I have an account in that place, and this is what it looked like a few months ago. At college, we were asked by our GD teacher to draw anything we wanted, as our very first exercise for that class and whatnot, and so, I decided to draw my dobby ol' Gaia avatar... isn't she a cutie? Ò u Ó
It took me ages to get some of those items, since they were somewhat expensive, but, once I finally got them, I was able to achieve the look I was going for: a kind of cheerful venice dancer... think of Cirque du Soleil, yes? I really like how my baby looks!

I don't go much there anymore, I don't find that site as amusing as I did back then, nor do I have much time to post there anymore, but it was nice while it lasted and I was certainly happy to draw my Gaia avatar for once c:

This one took about 4 days to finish, because I had an enormous amount of homework/college projects to do by that time. Those were some oozhassny days, but I think the hard work paid off.

Technique: 48x35 canvas. I drew all of it. Using Paper Mate's Medium Marker (0.5mm) and uni-ball micro deluxe pen in black for small details. Everything is hand-colored; using Prismacolor Professional colors. Also, I just added the photoshop background today; this was my very first shot at creating a CG background c:
Oh, yes, character concept is property of Gaiaonline.com

Oh my gosh!!!! You're soooooo talented.

And we have WAY TOO MUCH IN COMMON. I defintely had a gaia online obsession at one point. I drew my avatar as well. Back in the day, I would roleplay with others and spend a lot of times on the forums. I would also play the games. But, after a while, gaia would keep logging me out all the time. It got annoying, so I guess that's when I stopped going to the website.

But it was a huge phase of my life (that I had forgotten about before reading your post!) So, thank you!

Best wishes,

I used to be so addicted to Gaia! I just dont have enough time to put towards it anymore. Cute avatar by the way! Mine isn't as nice xD

Angel said...

I don't even want to hear about Gaia. I used to love being there with online friends, but they all eventually quit and now I have the burden of completing rl commissions. Cute avatar! I have a male avatar; he feels like an important persona that has some subconscious meaning behind his design.

Cute art style! Especially the eyes; they remind me of cats.
