The Evolution of Ellana by ellana The Evolution of Ellana by ellana
It's like an art timeline, only it focuses on my signature character. I felt... it needed to be done (and what better time than Christmas? I dunno why, but it feels like a good time to show her some love), and I thought it could be pretty cool since it does also serve as a partial timeline of how I have improved as an anime artist. (La la la~ back in the days when my art absolutely sucked. XD)

Anyways... 1999 to the present. The file is very LARGE, and I appologize, but please full view. ^^ Otherwise... how can you read it? Meh, maybe someone will find this interesting.

It also includes Kaiba, Chandra, and Tempest. Et. Cetera.

Ellana/Mitsuko (c) me. Me dangit!
Kaiba (c) me. (Except I stole the name from Yu-Gi-Oh!)
Nook (c) - used with permission.
Chandra (c) me.
Tempest/Skyites (c) me.
alleyWAY, Shooting Star Prophecy, and Ma. Gi. En. (c) me. Roar!

Dragonball Z/GT/Saiyans (c) Akira Toriyama, Toei Animation, all them...

Mentions:
Animorphs (c) K.A. Applegate (right...?)
The Song of the Lionness (c) Tamora Pierce

...this really makes me wanna upload REAAAAAALLLY old art. XD

Wow, I found this very amusing. Your style changed ALOT indeed. It was interesting to see how she changed and what you wrote. I think I may eventually do something like this.

I love your art from 2003, especially. It's very cool, different.

2002 looked like it was a very good time for you. I have a character like that named Nina who bloomed from the zelda series.

That was really cool! *___* You've improved tons, and it's really interesting to see how your character changed ^^ Yet somehow, she still retains some of her original look... it's cool ^^

It's so neat how you have her in so many different "universes" too. :0

I liked it a lot <3

Very nicely done, it was great reading through this...

This piece has really inspired me to create a timeline similar but dealing with my art progressing instead of focusing around a character!!!

Really interesting,
I generally love seeing the evolution of an artist's work (And actually had an hour long discussion about it today), so this entertained me quite a bit.

Wow...this is very cool! ^^ I've always wondered kind of how Ellana got started as a character. Seems like you've had her for a long time. Your drawing has really improved, as well. XD

Yeah, she's old. But not as old as her age actually is. XD (ie. in her original fandom, though she appeared from ages 7 and grew up to be about 20-something when I quit writing, she actually shoulda been Vegeta's age, who was middle-aged when she appeared as a 7-year-old. ^^; Don't ask. It was bad writing, but sorta amusing...)

My style did change a lot, but I was originally -trying- to mimic the DBZ style whereas now it's a TMM/shoujo/my own style. ^^;

Meh, a lot of the early stuff is colored pencils.

OMG... this is the coolest deviation I've probably seen all year! Had a blast reading it and seeing the "evolution" of Ellana. I really gotta do the same for Shiro... I really shouldn't have thrown away all of my drawings that I didn't like, ne?

Hehe, you kept the name "Baka-Ki" as well~ I <3 Kaiba!

Again, incredibly interesting work, I definately enjoyed reading it.

Fanboy. XD *shot* j/k, j/k...

OMGhowcouldyouthrowShiroaway? D: Bad nephie, bad. u_u;;

You seriously should though. Shiro ish awesome. Yesh.

Yeah, I did keep "Baka-Ki". I'm honestly surprised that "Khaki" stuck for Kakashi.

You enjoyed reading that crap that was me typing randomly? XD Yay~

ShiroMakoto Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2006
I'm going through a folder of old drawings I haven't touched... for at least 2-3 years... and I kept more than I thought I did. Not enough for a year-to-year comparison like you did, but to be able to mostly show Shiro's evolution.

Yeah, Khaki stuck so much that I don't call him by anything else now o.0

And yes, for some reason I enjoyed your crap.. but NOT cause I'm a fanboy :XD:

But yeah, when I get everything together and scanned, I'll see if I can copy your idea. =P
