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:

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.

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

The Goggles, trees, and grass are hints at his past and future?

Let me see if I can figure them out. When he was a child, he dreamed of flying so that one day he put on his flight goggles and leaped out of that tree with homemade wings and was only saved by how soft the grass was. Now he's older and will actually take to the skies.

That's the best I can figure, right now. By the way, are those paper airplanes? Someone folded an entire fleet!

Hehe, I wish I could comment on that XD. Actually, if you look through these old vote incentives, there are some clues as to the nature of the goggles at least.

Yep, they're paper planes (or "paper birds" in-universe) :D. All those in the air at once is part of a ceremony in a certain city.

Thanks for the comment :)

Awww he's got the grass all between his fingers... though that title seems an ominous one for a pilot thanks to Firefly.. the rest of it is so very peaceful! --And hey, the Everblue stuff is what I'm most looking forward to! ; p Thanks again for the adorable Ten sketched book from Sakura Con! ^.^

Thanks so much! :D Oh, were you the person who came by from the artist alley? You're welcome for the book! I'm so glad you liked it. And thanks for getting a sketched one -- they were lots of fun :]

Yes, I was from artist alley! And you're very welcome, it's really adorable. Whenever the other chapters are ready to print I'll be back for the others! Um... on that subject if at some point in the (likely distant >.>) future, would you mind if I made an Everblue doll? ^.^;

Definitely seems like the hopeful cover of a comic book with our main character staring nonchalantly out at the horizon. Not a care in the world, until the plot picks up :mwahaha: Always a good start.

Looking at this image actually makes me feel a bit peaceful. :thumbup:
