Spurred by Isa’s comment on Emma being a ‘wanton mistress of the night’. I’m still holding out for the REAL love triangle- Hercilia/Emma/Warrick. (Or a quadrangle with Nose works too. Everyone should just date everyone.)
Also fullsize the preview is gross
I leave you guys for three days … ;) This is great!
*Mutters*Wish I was better at drawing several comic panels consistently without having to do it in photoshop…
I’m so sorry Meg/Isa XD I got carried away with some sketching of Warrick and Emma in a wintry/christmas time situation. I would have done a BIGGER comic, actually, if I wasn’t so frustrated with the quality of images as I went along panels.
My first attempt at Selva here, actually. I thought it’d be funny to include her, though I don’t know what she’d think of those two. Not sure if she’d be uncomfortable or one of those pushy supportive siblings or what. But the LINE just seemed funny to me. I’m sure every shipper is thinking the same.
If you can’t read it or see it clearly to understand:
Warrick: This sweater is too big. And it’s itchy. *scratching all over*
Emma: It’s the only shirt Ben had that would fit you.
Warrick: *Still scratching while his hair begins to build static and lift up*
*Mistletoe magically floating to them in purple aura*
Emma and Elaine Crewe from the enthralling webcomic Namesake, by Isabella Melancon and Megan Lavey-Heaton. Fairy tales are a well-worn territory, but this story makes everything new and exciting. There are a lot of characters in different places at different times, but you still want to know what’s happening with all of them! I have especially been a big shy fan of Isabelle’s art for a long time, even before I started reading Namesake. Isabelle also has some cute Avatar fan art, so that must be why my version of Elaine keeps reminding me of Katara?
Here’s some fanart I did for one of my favorite webcomics “Namesake”
I’ve been reading it for awhile and went back to the start for a reread today.
I highly recommend checking it out, especially if you are a fan of looking at fairy tales and children’s literature from a new light.
This has got to be among some of my favorite badass Emma art ever. I love it. LOOK AT THAT AMAZING USE OF TYPOGRAPHY (stop laughing, Isa). It’s lovely and perfect, and if you ever do a print of this, I want one please.
This is more than just fanart for me, today. On the left is Alice Liddell, aka Alice from Alice in Wonderland, and on the right is Emma Crewe, who is a Dorothy in Namesake, as in Wizard of Oz Dorothy.
The two posters I have in my childhood bedroom are a movie poster for Wizard of Oz, and an illustration from Alice in Wonderland. It’s no coincidence that these are two of my favorite characters; they are two of my earliest memories of what you might call Strong Female Character.
But leaving aside gender politics, these were the first two characters I ever identified with. They were smart (sometimes), sassy, curious, adventurous, and brave. These two are prime examples of accessible characters, and even though each is flawed in her own ways, they are flawed in ways that make them relatable, not weak.
