My story of Ace Hardlight

My new project "Ace of Hearts" is a comic story set in an alternative universe that does not follow the games or "The Fallen Star" at all.
It is a 'what if' story, about a Verpardi and a Verpardess. Ratchet & Clank do not end up being captured by Vox in this story... instead, Vox captures a new 'worker' for DreadZone. And a lot of events unfold as the newcomer and the DreadZone superstar are forced to live together.

Check out the FAQ for the comic here:

Also, if you wish to see all my artwork from over the years which aren't uploaded here anymore, then visit my personal gallery! More than 2500+ artwork there, even the old shit!…

Hello :D
how are you?
Lurking-Leanne Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey ^^ Sorry I was away for a while on a trip, but I recently came back and now I'm finally trying to catch up on messages here ^^; but yeah I've been okay though! Still very slow with art, but yeah, life comes first ^^;
Shiva-Diavilla Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
It's ok X3

I understand, I am far behind with art, but I'm still recovering from the December trauma. I worked a lot.

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii :D
I remember you liked my Hovership papercraft.
Remember how I mentioned that I could easily do characters?
Well, for the most part, character models are actually easier than aircraft or most vehicles (At least ones with windows or really small parts).
Because if it's a vehicle, windows have to be made with clear plastic, which is in short supply and is hard to use. It's really challenging NOT to screw up when, for example, I'm making a fighter jet (Such as the F-15S/MTD on my profile pic) and I'm attaching the canopy glass. You have to use superglue to glue it to the rest of the plane, because that's the only kind of glue that can bind plastic with paper. And you have to be VERY CAREFUL NOT to get the glue ANYWHERE ELSE on the canopy OTHER than the tabs that attach it to the rest of the model. If you get it anywhere else, you'll have an ugly stain on the canopy, and you might as well just throw the piece out and make a new one, then try again.
And often times, if you're mostly done with attaching it and you mess up, you have to be very careful removing it, or risk destroying all your hard work. :noes:
Lurking-Leanne Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
Heya ^^ yes of course I remember, hehe :XD:

Sounds like quite a mission to make those models for sure :O I dont have time myself to do those, and my printer is almost out of ink anyways xD I suppose I just prefer to 3D print models and paint them myself (when I get around to it XD) but yeah it must be fun to do though!
AGiLE-EaGLE1994 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
They are fun to make, but sometimes they can be a pain.

Hey ^^ sorry for the late reply! I was away from DA for a while but I'm back now. And thanks for that, that was really nice of you :dummy: i'll try and be more active this year and post better works of art also!
Carwailea Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2016  Hobbyist Filmographer

I think the remastered Crash games will be awesome, though I don't have a PS4 system yet.
Lurking-Leanne Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh yes, I'm very happy with what I've seen for the remake so far :la: super excited to get them when they're out!!!
KrumpZero Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
DUDE I just wanted to stop by and tell you how AWESOME your art has become over the years (I was around 10 years old at the time I saw your amazing Crash Bandicoot fan art and animations-- I was simply astonished by all the work behind your Xtreme Island stuff, I thought it made the characters so much more cool with your interpretations), and I'm glad to have rediscovered your gallery :D Thanks for making my childhood that much more awesome, lol, and inspiring me to become a better artist overall!!
Lurking-Leanne Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey ^^ I'm sorry I took so long to reply. I haven't really been on DeviantART as of late, been busy with work and lots of other things! But I will try and make an effort to keep up with this place a bit more ^^ but anyways, I appreciate the kind thoughts and words. I actually had plans to try and reboot the old OB story, but only the story (no animations, I dont have the time or motivation for that anymore) although I'll do art of course to go with it.
Anyways, thanks again. I'll try and make more of an effort to stick around :-)
KrumpZero Featured By Owner Edited Nov 26, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
!!! No worries, dude! ^^ I understand the busy-schedule-life lol, I feel the same way  irl and online too. But whoooaaa, a reboot of the series?? I'd totally be hooked whenever you may have the time to work on it! (just imagining the characters in your current art style and skills, aaaahhh!). I've come to appreciate all the hard work you put into the old series and the animations, and whatever you have planned I will enjoy seeing regardless. Hahah, sorry for sounding like such a nostalgic fanboy LOL

Ahhh, you're welcome dude, and no rush-- keep up doing what you enjoy!! =D
