Never Quit by ZoeStead
Never Quit
No matter how hard things get, never quit.
Trace by ZoeStead
Bit of a strange picture this. I was sat writing a few ideas down for some new characters and a bit of a story formed. I wrote a few scenes and these guys came out of it. The two in the background are actually the main characters, but I kinda fell in love with this guy, who is called Trace. He's completely human but dresses in a mask and has a special cloak which enables him to glide short distances, hence his nickname 'Dragon'. He's a lone merc who has joined the same warband as Seg, who is stood behind him with L'vanda, who Seg kidnapped and made his 'pupil' of sorts until he can ransom her back to her rich parents...except it turns out she's as good a fighter as he is and has taken exception to everything he's done. L'vanda becomes friends with Trace as they feel like they were forced into the warband by nefarious means and want to find a way out. Trace is a skilled metalsmith and can make very fine mechanisms and devices for use in weapons. He cannot make swords and axes but things like tiny exploding silver insects or poisoned hatpins, and gets annoyed when people think the only thing that can be done with metal is beat it to within an inch of its life and make a hulking great sword. I have drawn Seg and L'vanda so expect some pics of them soon too. They hate each other and I always like characters who don't get along but have to for the sake of their own wellbeing. Anyway, enjoy. It's a bit different :)
The Places We Know by ZoeStead
The Places We Know
Silas and Arrik share a moment as they leave the fifth circle of the Netherworld. I wanted a hellish background yet I didn't want to make it totally scary and full of rocks and things. Trying to push my ideas on a bit further as I was just going to do another plain background, but if you want to get better at stuff you have to keep doing it, so more backgrounds practice for me lol. I hope you like the pic and can put some kinda of caption to what Arrik might be saying to Silas :) He's never happy, is he?
Gabriel by ZoeStead
I am trying to reinvent some of the angels and demons I had in my EB comic, or just drew pictures of a long time ago. I always made Gabriel out to be rather passive and studious, and yet he goes around announcing stuff and is kinda a big deal in the angel world. He might not have a sword like Michael or Camael, but why need to when you have flaming eyes and a halo to match- oh and probably a really loud voice too :) I wanted to draw something quite stylised and bold as I am liking the heavier inks at the moment. Anyway, just a concept piece really, hopefully showing off a bit of his thoughtful yet don't mess with me personality. Expect more pics soon :) Enjoy!
Today I finally took my 1st Dan grading in shotokan karate. I have been training a lot and other things have had to take a back seat for a while, but I am pleased to say that I passed. I have a lot still to learn, but it's a great achievement. Perhaps now I'll get abck to my writing and drawing a bit more! Trouble is I've now started Aikido as well. Why do I do this to myself lol!
Anyway, huge hugs to you all.

How come you haven't updated your comics?
ZoeStead Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I haven't had the time to draw comics in ages. I find it hard to fit in drawing as well as keeping a full time job and being a carer. I would honestly love to get back to it and I keep trying- and that's not to say there aren't piles upon piles of pencil work on my desk that could become a comic- it's just sadly a time thing. If I could quit my job tomorrow and still get paid, believe me, I'd be back to making comics in a flash ;) Thanks for asking though. Zoe x

I'm looking for a drawing of one of my oc, but i don't have a clean reference, so i'll describe her. First her name is Yamina. Her fur is dark grey/black, she has silver fur on her chest, and a kind of tatoo on her hindlimb (silver too) it represents a half moon.
She has long black messy hair. One of her eyes is totally withe ( but she always try to had it with her air ), she has chains unbreakable with a iron ball. She looks like a demon, but she stay attractive and seductive
She often tries to hide his black eye with her hair. It also has the other whitish eye without pupil, but she can see. A black liquid constantly flows from his black eye. her claws and fangs are long enough

Its ok if you don't want to do it :)

Heya, if I get some time to do your character justice I will see what I can do, but it wouldn't be for a while as I do have a lot on at the mo. I'm not the best at drawing wolves so it's a compliment that you ask, so thanks x
