Gradients Halloween Party

As I go back to the daily color sketch, I decided it would be fun to see what the characters in Gradients would dress as for a Halloween party, since well, that way you can get to know them better. It was really, really fun to draw and choose every costume, even if some required a bit more research than others.

Romeo went as Dorian Grey (the Penny Dreadful Version), Rene went as Elizabeth Bennet (From Pride and Prejudice AND Zombies), Xolotl as Steve Harrington and Izqui as the Demogorgon (from Stranger Things), Luisa as Jeannie II pretending to be Jeannie (from I dream with Jeannie), Honesty as an Axolotl, Henry and Aria as Waldo and Carmen San Diego, and Noemi as Luna Lovegood (From Harry Potter).

Jem and the Holograms

Jem and the Holograms has always been part of my childhood. I remember when I watched the TV series, and found ONE store that carried a stamp album of the series. I never got anyone to change stamps with, so it went unfinished, but I loved it with all my heart. We never got the toys in Mexico, so I had to make do with Barbie and the Rockers -which I always saw as an inferior copy to the outrageous fabulousness that was Jem.

Fast forward a lot of years, and  IDW with Sophie Campbell made a dream I had come true. Namely, a more modern Jem comic. Sure, it didn’t last too long, and I still want the second omnibus volume, but while it lasted it was AMAZING. Seriously, go and buy it at your local comic book shop and wonder at the gloriousness that is a Jem story that doesn’t have to sell dolls.

So of course, during my weekly practices, I had to do Jem and the Holograms (And Pizzaz and Stormer because I ran out of time the day I was supposed to finish the Misfits)

And seriously, go and buy IDW’s Jem and the Holograms.


She-Ra Princess of Power

She-ra was another winner in my weekly polls, and one I was REALLY happy to see. I mean, it’s She-ra! And now she’s back in Netflix, which makes it even better because she deserves more love.  When I was a little girl I had She-ra, Katra and Bow (I LOVED my Bow doll), and never missed an episode. Sure, some are really cheesy, but they’re still some of my fondest memories, and, let’s be honest here, one of the first, if not THE first, American Magical Girl.

Cats Make Bad Familiars

This is a one page comic I made last year for a contest (That, unfortunately, I didn’t win). While I know that cats are by tradition the witches’ familiars, my own experience with my cats make me wonder… how did they manage to get ANYTHING done.

(those who follow me in facebook… yeah, the cat is based on my beloved Hei Hei)

Equestria Girls Dungeons and Dragons

So I love Dungeons and Dragons, and I love Equestria Girls. Which is why, of course, I had to mix both in one series of images. From Twilight Sparkle the Sorcerer, to Pinkie Pie the Bard, this is one party of adventurers that is sure to have fun no matter what.

Wonder Kidanakash Nedakh


I adore Atlantis: The Lost Empire. I think that it’s one of the most underrated movies of the Disney animated canon, and that Kida should be in the Princess’ line up because she is THAT Badass. I adore every single character, from Milo to Gaetan, and I think it’s a crime that more people don’t love the movie.

That said, I also adore Nubia, Wonder Woman’s black sister. Even if her origin in the silver age is a bit cringy, and she was pretty much ignored post crisis (She appeared, people forgot her and man, she should’ve been the new Wonder Woman instead of Artemis) and now she’s pretty much relegated to an alternate earth that well, it’s a bit problematic, I still love that she finally has an official Wonder Woman outfit. And because she, like Kida, is very overlooked, well, the combination was obvious.

(I am a bit mad that the scanner lightened Kida’s skin so much, as I tried to make her the same tone as she is in the actual movie)

Wonder Snow White

The next of my Wonder Princess Series, Snow White, the very first Disney Princess.

I have to admit, I am not that huge fan of Snow White. I love the changes they made to her in Once Upon a Time (Even if the actress’ hairdo distracts me sometimes), but the one in the movie was… very bland.  Still, on the process of making this piece, I got to like her a bit better. Can’t be easy to make those seven dwarves become a bit more civilized!

On the other hand, the suit I gave her is from one of my favorite versions of Wonder Woman: The Darwyn Cooke’s New Frontier armor. That Diana was pretty much everything I love about Diana: Strong, joyful, ready to fight when needed but also knowing when to rest and when it was time to celebrate life.  Dawryn’s art just made her look even bigger than life. (He is very missed).

Let me know what you think of this Wonder Princess, and well, see you next week for the next!

It was made on a Copic Marker Skecthbook, using Shinhan Touch liners, Copic Liners, Touch Twin markers and Copic Markers. Oh, and some glitter pens that got lost in the scanning.

Wonder Moana

I have to admit, Wonder Woman is my favorite comic book character of all time. One of my earliest memories is watching Lynda Carter on TV, and well, I had a bit of an obsession.

With the new movie, and all those “She wasn’t the first badass woman in movies” meme, I suddenly had the urge to dress Moana as Diana. They have a lot in common: Both are the only daughters of their Island’ monarch, both leave the island against their parent wishes but with another, older female family member’s approval. Both have to deal with a man who has a bit more ego than sense…. and well, if I keep going, I will spoil Wonder Woman.

So here’s my Wonder Moana (now the first of a series I’ve got planned and that I will share here for you all to see) a bit bigger and a bit cleaner than in Instagram and Twitter.

(Oh, and some WIP photos so you see the evolution)

It was made on Deleter A4 paper, using Shinhan Touch liners, Copic Liners, Touch Twin markers and Copic Markers.
