Hi! My name is Alyssa. I'm a self-taught artist, and I've been drawing seriously since about 7th grade.

I have a wild imagination, and a love of story telling. I love drawing, and do it anytime I can. When I'm not drawing, I am having stories with my made up characters running through my head. I don't write down these stories as often as I should, cause I find it boring and difficult, and I'm a perfectionist. But for now I will draw about them. My dream is to one day write about and share my world and it's stories to everyone.

Please comment on my pics! I'd love advice, as well as just a good job! :D

Art Progression Photos: My Other Self and I

  • Watching: Full Metal Alchemist

Edit: Final, finished sketch added!

For those who don't know, I have a Twitter account (Jestloo, same as here). For the longest time I wasn't sure how I should use it. I've decided it is mostly going to be used to post WIPs and progress pics of sketches. I thought it would be neat to see how a picture evolves over time till it is completed. (Personally, I always loved seeing how a picture came to be.) There will also be finished colored pictures like here on DA and occasionally, pictures I never finish. Anyway, just letting you guys know.

I'll add notes about any noticable changes I did to each peace. But, there are other tweaks you'll have to find yourself. :)

I'll go ahead and continue to update this journal with the first sketch though:
Image by Jestloo
Added Yami(Atem's) bangs, moved his ear, and added details to both of their faces. Draped Yugi's left bangs down more over his ear. Fixed back, bottom of Yami(Atem's) spiky hair.
Image by Jestloo
Moved Yami(Atem's) ear once more and altered the bang behind it to arch over instead of under. Raised both jacket collars, adjusted both shoulders, and nearly completed Yami(Atem's) jacket.
Image by Jestloo
Comepletely erased and redid Yami(Atem's) body, arm and legs. Lightly filled shadows to make them easier to distinguish from my line art. Darkened lines that I felt were complete.
Image by Jestloo
Added more shadowing on Yami/Atem's jacket. Made Yugi's arms, hands, and part of the Millennium Puzzle. Also thickened his neck and added his collar bones.
Image by Jestloo
Added Yugi's legs, made his irises larger, and finished their hair. Also added many details and minor tweaks, including lowering bangs on Yugi's forehead, enlarging the Millennium Puzzle, adding shadows, and wrinkles. This is the final WIP.
Image by Jestloo
Finished the chain on the Millennium Puzzle, erased all of Yami/Atem's intersecting lines behind Yugi, shaded in all black colors, and darkened the lines.
My Other Self and I sketch - 4/13/15 by Jestloo

All done!! I hope you guys enjoyed the process! Don't know about you, but I thought it was neat to see the sketch evolve into a finished work. Not sure if I'll do this again, at least not for every piece. What do you guys think? Would you like to see more of these progress journals in the future? They'd probably only be for big sketches like this one.

I ... liked it; punctuation and grammar can be fun - especially if you know what you're doing - and you can extend sentences into elaborate thought processes, which can be entertaining (or burdensome) to read.

(See what I did there?) :D

Rules are, no being sad after the Brown Truck O'Happiness brings your goodies. :D

(Reads blurb) :faint:

It's really hard to not be cheesy when showing a true, solid, strong friendship.  (I do hope I'm portraying that with Stan/Lance/Rae)

Ever have one of those weeks where the vacuum just sucked?

Well, I wish you well.

And yeah, kinda hope you can read something.  Even if it is that really short bit I mentioned. :)
Jestloo Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2015  Student General Artist
Lol. True... I'm getting sad though. I only need 7 more books to complete the series. I'm not gonna get the next Yu-Gi-Oh! books with the new protagonists (their on their 5th now.) I like the first one because it was original, where as the rest will reuse what made the first special, making them less special. That, and Yugi Mutou and Yami/Atem are practically impossible to replace/upstage as the lead protagonists.

Mmmmmm!! I just finished reading one of my favorite segments too! Gah! Sorry, I'm super excited and have to tell someone. XD
Joey and Yugi are best friends, but Joey got mind controlled by the antagonist (who wants to kill the Pharaoh/Yami/Atem because of some 1,000 year grudge). The two get cuffed to an anchor that will drag them into the ocean to drown. The only way to escape is for one of them to beat the other in a duel. The winner's box will open between his feet and he'll have 15 seconds to unlock his cuff. (The duel is timed as well, so Yugi couldn't stall either.) Yugi tries many attempts to snap Joey out of the mind control during the duel. When Joey is forced to make his final move to take out Yugi's life points and kill him, Joey cries out to Yugi. Yugi sees Joey break free from the villain's control and activates a "trap card" to block and hold the attack Joey sent at him. However, the trap is just a deflector and Yugi must choose who it will hit. Before he decides, he tells Joey that he is his best friend and that he loved him. (Bromance. You know, true friendship, like David and Jonathan.) Then Yugi commands the attack to hit him, and sends his own life points to 0, opening Joey's box with the key and starting the 15 second countdown. Instead, Joey commands Yugi's last monster (it was Joey's monster, but Yugi was holding on to it at the time) to attack him, making his life points 0 too. Joey swings across the platform on his chain to reach Yugi's key. (Yugi had collapsed.) The timer runs out and both get dragged into the ocean. Joey unlocks Yugi's cuff and watches him float back to the surface. However, in his haste, Joey did not get his own key and Yugi's key did not work on his cuff. Luckily, Yugi and Joey's rival, Kaiba was there, and he dropped the key into the water for Joey. After Yugi wakes up, the two make amends and are happy that the other is alive.

There are many things I like about Yu-Gi-Oh! One of which, is its portrayal of true friendship throughout its story, and it does a decent job at not being too cheezy about it. (Which usually turns me off.) Nope, it shows how people can come to really love each other, outside of a romantic relationship, as it should be. (Which, again, is why I hate the fandom with a passion. They all missed the point. Those wretched, stagnated, lustful imaginations... :X)

Sorry for writting all of that. Now, back to vacuuming before Daddy kills me. ^^;

I guess not.

That sucks.

And with the delivery, we'll probably never hear from you again. =P
