Soli silhouette by shingworks Soli silhouette by shingworks
Was playing around with composition yesterday and sketched this really fast... my trigger-finger is itching to put this in scraps but it still has a certain charm to me. *gnaws fingers*

Soli, from my comic :3

Love your work, and this has got to be one of my favourites! Fantastic shading and composition, and there's so much energy in the pose.

Everything I've seen about Soli so far looks really awesome; I know she's going to be one of my favourite characters!
Also I love silhouettes, and her pose is so dramatic and dynamic and epic!

I'll just say right now how much I love Soli. She's an amazing character and she kicks butt.

I'll also say that you are truly my favorite artist. You are an amazing indivdual and you inspire me so much. Pretty much I see my life in two ways: before The Meek and after The Meek. Rock on, Helmer, rock on. :heart:_:heart:

P to the S I'm not sure why I'm putting this here...I've been wanting to say it for awhile and have been needing to comment on this for awhile, so yeah. You are awesome.

;___; Wow, thanks so much! Its a bit of a surprising comment in the middle of the 'lol' and 'cute! comments in my inbox, haha... I'm so glad you enjoy my art so much, and that my characters have touched you :) This next month is going to be spent getting ready for the real thing, not sure if you've seen it yet but I have a domain waiting for something to happen: [link]. Thanks for liking my art so far, hopefully I can keep you interested in the future too!

Actually, I have. xD The reason I joined LJ was so that I could see more of The Meek, and I've been keeping an eye on the place although I don't comment much. I can hardly wait!

I'm digging it. Subtle lighting looks good, and gives a nice sense of form. The eye with the tear make the whole thing look like an album cover too, which is kinda cool.
