Leaves on the Wind by Blue-Ten Leaves on the Wind by Blue-Ten
I think this is the first complete, full-color Ten illustration I've ever done :o

Anyway, this is the new cover for Chapter 1, replacing the old lines-only one XD. You may notice the goggles, tree, and grass. These are hints at Ten's past and future in Volume 1 :)

XD I've got two fanarts coming up, but I feel like it'll be a while before I get to them. I hope you don't mind all the Everblue stuff in the meantime :B

Love, love, LOVE it! :highfive: Can't wait for this series to really get into high gear, but for now I'm loving the tension-filled build-up and all manner of possible foreshadowing afoot! :eager:

Nice! I really like the blur on the floating leaves. :)

Leaves caught in action are so awesome! Gosh, thinking about the land he's sitting in just makes we wonder more about the world of Everblue :D
I noticed the way Ten fits into the lineless background, almost like an animation frame! The gradually colored lines on his hands, nose and bandanna make the transition very smooth :] Aaagghh and your bright-sunlight color schemes just keep getting better and better!

Ooh- and speaking of Chapter 1, when do we get to see the redone pages of said chapter? I'm excited to see what those pages would look like in color :la:

Thanks so much :D

Haha, it's gonna be a while ^^;. I'm planning to re-ink them all before I even try to touch colors. I seem to be changing things I do every other week XD, but this way at least the lines will be consistent the whole way through.

Yar welcome!

Well your style has changed considerably since then so I don't blame you XD

Goggles... didn't his mom have goggles? Aiko, or something? :0
As for the nature... a lot more ground than there is water... boats... aaaaahh, my brain wants me to go somewhere with this but I don't know what!
But I see mini paper planes, too... /mind explodes

And Ten's hair seems to be more dark-dark blue than black, and his eyes are more of a very light/soft blue than gray. How very peculiar- /shot

Anyway, love this~ It's very calm and a lot more fluid and soft than the first one. Love the tree and clouds, also~ AND THE SHADING. I WANT YOUR SHADING

Yes, she did have goggles :]. I changed her name to Taka though -- Aiko was a bit too commonly used XD.

Haha, there are certain aspects of the story and the world I haven't introduced quite yet. This cover will begin to make more sense in a couple chapters :). Oh, and Ten's hair and eyes here are more a result of the bluish shadows/highlights I applied than anything else XD

Aw, thanks so much :D
