Valiard Teens Sketch Dump by The-Ez Valiard Teens Sketch Dump by The-Ez
In The Valiard Mansion, Ruth (left) is 24, Theodore (bottom-middle) is 26, and Adam (right) is 15 — but I had these sketches lying around and thought it'd be fun to put them together. :meow: So here are all three characters at roughly Adam's age.

Adam, Ruth's baby brother, is the thieving troublemaker of the story and the bane of Theo's existence, so I absolutely adore writing his parts. :giggle:

The full-body coloured Adam was done in preparation for the upcoming Valiard Animated Trailer, which you can read more about

NOW HIRING | The Valiard Animated Trailer is BACK!:bulletred: UPDATE! The deadline for applications has been set to 16 May, 2016! :bulletred:
Hi, guys! :D
Exciting news! The Valiard Mansion's Animated Trailer is back in production, and this time around, it has a legit entertainment company backing it. :w00t:
The reason I had indefinitely shelved the animated trailer project was because times got hard around May last year, and I had to dedicate all my efforts to doing whatever paid work I could find. I didn't have the resources to contract folks to lighten the load, so I was forced to all but abandon the trailer, even though it bothered me terribly to do that. However, my priority was to finish writing the novel, because hey — if there's no novel, what's the point in a trailer?


But now things have changed!

Golden Bell Entertainment is looking for talented animators and artists to work on this project, namely
CHARACTER ANIMATORS, EFFECTS ANIMATORS


And the FAQ is here:
 thevaliardmansion.tumblr.com/t…

Applications to work on it are open until 16 May, 2016, so apply if you'd like. :)

i really like how strong Adam's chin is. It really makes me wonder how he'd look when he is older...

I don't like how Adam looks (at least not in this picture). He looks like a character from Family Guy. . . Yup, definitely Family Guy. I like the other two characters though, especially Theodore.

Wait, what? Family Guy? Really? I Googled the characters and I couldn't find a single one bearing any factual resemblance to my character. I've never watched Family Guy (except for that one song about the "Down Syndrome Girl") so you'll have to help me out here if you want to go 'round drawing comparisons.

That said, I can't imagine The Valiard Mansion's audience and Family Guy's audience overlapping much, so I won't change my character. But you got a good chuckle out of me.

And hey! Glad you like the other characters! Thank you! :D

I think it's the big chin and nose, and simple mouth, and the way he stands reminds me of Quagmire.

But you're probably right. The audience is a little different.

IKR. I love those almost-pencil-skirts they wore back then. Must've sucked walking around in 'em, but MAN, it looks so stylish! :XD:

Thank you! Glad you like! :glomp:

Thank you! I'm constantly trying to improve the way I draw their clothes, because they didn't have the same fit back then that we have now. So it's still a massive learning experience for me. :faint:

Hugs! :heart: :tighthug:

How old is the blonde?  He looks kind of between his tweenage years and his post-teens.  At least because he strikes me as someone bored yet excitable as a kid

The blonde boy, Adam, is 15 years old, a few weeks away from 16. :aww: And that's a big compliment, what you said, because he's totally a bored, slow kid, until he comes across his hobby. :D

HAHA! Thank you! :XD: 

I want you to know I have been keeping an eye on the emails you've sent me — well, I know they're there, but I haven't read them yet because I always leave your emails as a treat for later. :aww: I've just had a hectic two weeks, having been booked back-to-back on longer commission work. I'm only now catching up with people/followers/friends. :blush: But not before I get some drawing done. I always miss my characters super insanely after a long commission period, so my time goes into getting them out of my system. :faint:

Hugs! :glomp:
