WHO IS THE CAPTAIN NOW?

Meet Lori (up) and Quesi (down), a new and a not so new character
Conozcan a Lori (arriba) y Quesi (abajo), un personaje nuevo y otro no tanto


it feels weird, this time I used more colors than I use to, don't know why...what do you think of it? pls click for a better view
Esta vez como que use mas colores de lo habitual..q les parece? click para ver mejor la imagen
--------------------
Children must learn not to be selfish; to dare for others and share with others…and these kids, Lori and Quesi, won’t be an exception...They were very enthusiastic about playing pirates and prepared all they needed, but they both wanted so badly to be the unique captain that they began fighting, tore up the map and preferred not to play anymore…even not to speak to each other anymore...What they haven’t noticed is that the real captain is approaching…sure they will be scared to death when they see the big fellow…but don’t worry…the cat can seem ferocious but he is really inoffensive … we just agreed on teaching them the lesson…

"Three keys to more abundant living: caring about others, daring for others, sharing with others” - William A. Ward

Los niños deben a no ser egoístas, preocuparse por los demás y compartir con ellos…y estos chicos no van a ser una excepción. Ellos estaban muy emocionados porque iban a jugar a los piratas, ya habían preparado todo, pero ambos querían ser el capitán, comenzaron a discutir y hasta rompieron el mapa…ya no querían ni jugar ni hablarse mas…Pero no se han dado cuenta de que el verdadero capitán se acercaba, yo se que se van a asustar mucho cuando se den cuenta pero no se preocupen, ese gato, por mas feroz que parece es inofensivo…los dos estamos de acuerdo en enseñarles la lección

Por cierto me encanta el icono en forma de círculo que usaste en IF. Es muy pregnante y te aseguras que llame la atención!!!

Hi, thanks for your concern :) I'm ok, I've just been going through a really tough time (I found out my boyfriend cheated on me multiple times, we broke up and it's really affected me). Basically I'm just getting through a day at a time and being creative has gone completely out the window. It's weird because I want to draw but... I just can't. I start back at Uni in a month though so I hope I'll be able to then. x

Están relindos tus personajes, Zari, y el color le viene bien también. Muak!

Ah, teaching kids not to be selfish. That's been hard! Love the newspaper hat on the new guy.

Nice work! :)

By the way, thanks for making the doodle napkin into a card!! But I've tried to buy a couple of your cards, and I'm having a really hard time making it to the checkout. After I add the cards to my cart, and push checkout, it says that my cart's empty. Is the site down or am I doing something wrong??? :(

Un beso!

Funny - what a big maw your cat has! Personally, I find the yellow a little too bright but that could also be my monitor..., otherwise great

Paola said...

mike r baker said...

Incredible work as always, Zari! Love the whole concept and design! The colors work great. I'm afraid that cat is in for nasty surprise when he bites down on those knives. :)

Gorillustrator said...

Nice work.
Very distinctive style, the colours work great by the way.

Jules said...

This is super. I love the colour - makes me want lemonaid but yellow or pink???? And why did they even make pink lemonaid anyway? There are no pink lemons... I digress. Great illos; I love your graphic style.

Pickledog said...

Cute story, with a valuable lesson for kids (and some adults too.)
I hope everything works out for Lori and Quesi.

Juan Pablo said...

Hola Zari, gracias por tus comentarios me han animado mucho. Oye tengo que aplaudir tus ilustraciones, tus personajes son únicos y encantadores. Me encanta que hayas creado toda una trama para tu propuesta. Saludos desde Maracaibo ;-)
