I got a bit busy so I wasn’t able to add any updates of this drawing up before today, sorry about that. It is finally going live! But before that I would like to give some back story to this drawing. This drawing was first done about a year ago, I think… sadly for some reason I didn’t put the date in the back. In any case, this is the first drawing to go through a new project that I am working on. Thinking about it, it doesn’t have a name yet does it (the project I mean)? After thinking about it, I will name it “The Restoration Project”. I will be restoring a lot of my old drawings since I just didn’t have the abilities to draw out the full potential of my art at the time. This will only be done on the drawings that actually have a potential of course, this is so I can limit the amount so that I can keep doing some new material.

Now, as for the drawing it self. I have been giving hints of me writing my own story. What I have not said yet is the name of the story. So this will be the first time I will be making this public. The name of the story will be named “Between Light and Darkness”. As of now, I plan on writing this story in three parts. But I do have ideas of what can come after. What does this have to do with this drawing? Well this is a scene inspired by my story using two of the characters that will be in it. The girl is named Ame Makenshi and the boy is named Obscurus Nube. I want to make the story a bit original, but like most stories this has to do with a guy who has feelings for a girl. This scene is of them in a  Halloween party. Ame is getting a picture taken and Obscurus is caught in the background staring at her. I’m sure this has happened to most people at some point right? So what do you guys think? Does the drawing look better?

Obscurus and Ame ‘Halloween’ + Update

I will be updating the website pretty soon, sorry I had to take care of some things on my end before I could come back to finish the construction of the website. I will be adding some more artwork to the “gallery” and updating the “prices“. So I hope you guys look forward to that.

Anyway I want to do something a bit different. I have a lot of old artwork that is actually pretty good, but I need to color it in better and polish it over all. So I will be doing that with a couple of drawings. We will start with the one below. Since it is October I felt it fitting for the season (more on the drawing later).

Hope you guys look forward to it.


Obscurus and Ame Halloween

Ame and Obscurus Halloween Party

Originally meant for a contest that was supposed to close today, but apparently the creator meant that that they would not be accepting any more entries on the 28 of October. Oh well. I pushed my self to finish it but I guess it was not enough.

In any case since it will be Halloween I decided to post it anyways. I’m still taking a bit of a break so I wont be posting any more videos till the end of the this week. Hope you guys look forward to that.

The drawing it self looked a whole lot better without color. I feel that when it comes to drawing backgrounds, color pencils have a major drawback. I am in serious need of some Copic’s. When I draw characters in color pencil, I can manage since I can add as much detail as I want, but when the area is too large (which most background are), it takes far too much effort and time to make it look “incredible”. I’ll have to find a solution to this…

Hope you enjoy it,



Sora and Riku playing with Obscurus ( ArtByKarenEHaley Entry )

I’ll start off by saying that I want to enter this into the “Professional” category.

The characters are from Kingdom Hearts (specifically Sora and Riku) and the the other character in the tv screen is Obscurus (my Original Character). I’ve also added a photo of Kairi in a poster posted on the wall (giving the impression that she is an idol, or something similar).

I don’t know how others see things when playing games, but I feel like I am right along side Sora (or Riku in the latest installments) on his adventures. In other words we are “hanging out with each other” (sorry I know the description is kinda weak, but I hope you guys get the point). So I thought I would reverse the position and make it seem like Sora and Riku are playing alongside Obscurus on his adventure. In this case Sora and Riku are playing versus mode. Riku having beaten Sora too many times decides to play blindfolded and is still sweeping the floor with him.

Hope you enjoy it,
