Motorcity: Ramune vs. Red by Rice-Lily
Motorcity: Ramune vs. Red
I've been working on this animatic for almost two weeks. This was only supposed to be a 12 scene fight and well....I think it is? Bah oh well. I honestly hate Red, because he's a dumb. But I'll admit, he's fun to draw.

Life Drawing: Egon Schiele study by Rice-Lily
Life Drawing: Egon Schiele study
Model: Ginger
Date: 04/13/2015

I haven't been uploading as much lately, so have some Life Drawing!
I love studying Egon Schiele and trying out his methods. His style speaks to me. I should really do more ink and watercolor pieces. 

I didn't mark this as "mature content" because you don't really see nudity in the traditional sense. Merely implied.

It's Criminal. CRIMINAL That this page doesn't have more views and attention, your art is incredibly vivid and indescribably emotive. Mixing together for a brilliant art style.

Ive come up with a reasonable fantheory that should blow any haters of your Peridot (love her by the way) strait out of the water. You see it's never been conformed or denied that all gems have a differed stone  we only assume this since their named after their stones.
But since their is supposed to be an entire planet of them its seems much more likely that there are multiple gems with the same stone.
Its also possible that there for example is an Opel who is not a fusion of two different gems and that there is and Amethyst who is. 

Anyway those are just my ramblings keep up the good work.

aww, thats so sweet of you! and yes, that's a pretty reasonable hypothesis. The universe is a vast place with innumerable possibilities, I like the fact that the show is slowly feeding us information about the Gems and their history, as well as the people of Beach City.

I'd like to see more Gem history, or at least stories about Rose and her battles through the ages. I wonder if they'll bring back Jamie the Mailman? I hope that we get a taste of the mysterious Yellow Diamond character. World(s) exploration! Pretty much everything. I'm not terribly fond of Onion, he's a good side character but not really a strong story subject, in my opinion. We get that he's hardcore, on his own most of the time, and possibly a part-time gun-for-hire but that's about it. I dunno, I leave it up to the writers to do their thing.

what about you? what'd you like to see?
