Final Illustration Project - Supersition by KicsterAsh Final Illustration Project - Supersition by KicsterAsh
So our final assignment for Editorial Illustration was on the theme of Superstition. we had to somehow incorporate text into the image. And considering most of my watchers here have read my PnF fanfic trilogy The Seer, you will know that one of the running gags in the story was Buford shouting out "Knock on Wood! every time they came face to face with danger... or, were about to XD

Considering I want to make The Seer an original story (meaning void of anything PnF in it) in the hopes of maybe getting it published, I used the cast of Imagination Jumpstart As teenagers. Leo doesn't actually have glasses during the adventure, but it made him stand out in this pic.

The characters are colored in Copic and Prismacolor markers and the BG is done in watercolor. It was the very first time I worked in such large scale with watercolor, and considering I usually like working with the wet-on-wet technique, the contrasts are very subtle. I was given some good tips during critique time so that makes up for it! But for the most part, I'm very happy with how this came out. I redesigned the Ranger outfit, but it still needs some work. Ralph and Leo were a butt to color XDDD

This is also a sort of gift for IJ's cocreator Mel. She was a darling to me earlier this week when I was having issues with my neighbours, and something happened this past weekend to rock her world, not in a positive way either. So if you guys can say a prayer for her and her family, that would be awesome.:heart: Even if you don't pray, maybe keep her in your thoughts.:heart:

Okeh; now I must finish reading something and then do some drawing homework before diving into bed and getting ready for a day of animating tomorrow!

Out of curiosity, are you planning on adapting "The Seer 2" to the "Imagination Jumpstart" verse as well? And what country is Madison from; I don't recall it being mentioned anywhere.

You know...by my look of this view. Your OC's fit perfectly to be the main version fanfic story for your Fanfiction story (without the PnF). But in reality...I love your original story you wrote. Even if its a factful idea.Clap Clap Clap Heart Heart Heart

Ashely, if you have time could you tell me the names of each?
And if you have any drawing describing them, please send me a link because I can't find.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you :heart:

I can actually tell you. From left to right: Perak, Madison, Ralph, Galileo/"Leo" and Xerus-Ignatius/"Sparky". Leo and Sparky are stepbrothers and the other 3 are their closest friends with Madison being Sparky's best friend after his brother.
Here's a link to a description page of a sort for Leo and Sparky: www.deviantart.com/art/IJ-Anim…
Though browsing through the original art and OCs folder should let you find some stuff.

"Knock on woo-ood" :D The wordplay gives it such a playful meaning.
Your watercolor looks so soft and pastel; great job!

Oh, wow. I adore the background and how you added an effect to each character to help them work with the background in harmony. It works extremely well! Though, gotta ask.. is the background supposed to spell something out?

That makes me a little sad but hey; once you publish this, someone else might want to make a movie based on it. Hopefully they'd let you have as much input as possible; that way the movie would be as close to the book as possible.

It's in the process of being reposted with all but the last part back up; it's currently a Phineas and Ferb fanfic. KicsterAsh also plans on posting a sequel at some point after the original is complete though she hasn't stated whether the sequel will be adapted to Imagination Jumpstart or not yet.

Wow! This is great...and actually a bit coincidental. I was in English today and was doodling when the Seer came to mind. I was happy you were reposting it so I thought to myself "I think I'll draw her something to thank her" so I started drawing Sparky as the Seer. I was all excited to finish it and send it to you, but it looks like you beat me to it :giggle:
Anyways, another astounding piece of art. I can't wait for more! :squee:

I think it's interesting to see the IJ kids in full Seer attire - I know that they're relatively the same as the PnF version, but it's still something you'd like to see, seeing as they're rather different characters wearing them.
(Can you tell I just got back from Uni? :b)

I do hope you choose to write the Seer, Sparky style - the first version was terrific!
