PolyNoid by sfox8 PolyNoid by sfox8
View the Full Sized Version Here. Don't let all my detailing go to waste. TT-TT

Original character from my polynoid comic (i'm actually working on this one).

Anywho, wow could the submission system get any more confusing? >->;;

Coloring is similar to my Into the Light picture, only a little more detailed. I think I'm getting better with this kind of style. =3 I'm happy with this for the most part. Some minor issues but yeah.. =O

Tools Used: Photoshop CS2, openCanvas, pencil and paper

The thumbnail doesn't do this justice. For some reason, it looks really blurry in the smaller version, but when enlarged, it's nice and crisp.

Wow, I had to look twice or even three times at it. The colouring is so beautiful about it. The light and shadow contrast makes it look very dreamy and fantasy like. :)

Hey you did cure fan art!

I didn't know any one from the magi nation crew was doing a fan comic with one of shiro's characters! she'll be so excited!

wait.. what? xDD;;; haha um I think you have me confused with um.. someone else. Matt Holmberg possibly? Thank you millions though! You don't know how flattering it is to be mistaken as one of the Magi-Nation artists.

Also, this guy isn't Cure. Actually I found out after i was almost done with this picture that *shirotsuki had a character that was almost identical. This is really a concept I had in mind for a quite a while (inspired by the magi-nation artwork and card game). I didn't update it in the artist's comment (I guess I probably should now) but I've redesigned him so that he doesn't resemble shiro's Cure character.

haha but no, I'm not from the magi-nation crew (only in my DREAMS). Thanks for the complement though. =3 That really made my day.

No i didn't think you were an artist- i thought you were one of the forum goers. Cure has been around for a long time, he was originally a magi who made his debut on the forum. that is why i assumed you were doing fanart. Funny thing though, shirotsuki was a magi nation artist. Back then she went by Whyrl and she did card art for the traders reach set. it didn't get released (real bummer i think, what can you do though, right?)

sfox8 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2007
ooh. I understand now. Yeah, I'm a forum goer (Insiider, you mean?).

Yeah I knew shiro went by Whyrl a while back but I didn't know she was a Magi-Nation artist! That's a big honor there. She's really lucky. I first found her here on DA and after I found out about Insiider, I heard talk of "Whyrl" and when I found one of Whyrl's pictures I realized that it was Shirotsuki. Like I said, never knew she had done some art for Traitor's Reach.

It's sad that they're not releasing it now (judging by the Q&A email on the forum). It would've been the best thing ever if 2i would just give us a parting gift from the Magi-Nation we used to know. Because God knows I'm definitely not looking forward to seeing the artwork changed to that of the cartoon series...

Well i kinda meant "back in the day" but yeah a forum goer. Damn that was 7 years ago, i feel old now ^_^ Regarding II though, I don't think we'll ever see a new card installment. I don't even think they exist anymore- I was really surprised to see the forums were still up.

Oh and you haven't seen the horror?! You can see the cartoon on youtube- be prepared for hilarious pokemonesque plot devices.

yeah I watched the first episode. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting but it still definitely wasn't up to my expectations.

But yeah, on Insiider forums they confirmed that the new card game being released won't have the old artwork/style of Matt Holmberg and the rest so that leads me to the conclusion that it's going to be the anime art.

In that case, I'd rather them just trash the whole thing. The only reason I ever played the Magi-Nation card game in the beginning was for the art (then I realized it's actually a cool game and I bought the Gameboy game). There's also an MMO in the works and a new DS game (I think). It's based on the cartoon's storyline. This really isn't sounding good... TT-TT

Jesus, what "minor issue" is wrong with this? It's fantastic! I love it. Her expression is priceless. The lighting is beautiful.

If I were in her place I'd have the exact same WTF expression, what with the glowing leaf floating in front of me. Especially with a big-ass snail too. Snails and slugs creep me out.

Amazing work. You've definitely a lot to be proud of.

>0> thank you so much. i really worked hard on it so i'm so thankful you like it. I guess the "minor issues" are just things that I see because I drew it. I pretty much tried to hide them though so maybe that's why they aren't very noticeable.

thanks again. :)
