2018 – Here we go!


Before January ends, we want to wish you all a great 2018!!

The festivities are over, the year just started and we’re well into the working rhythm of the new year but it still feels like 2018 appeared out of nowhere, even if we welcome it with wide open arms!

The tic toc of Time keeps going, so let’s stay committed to the resolutions (ah yes, we mean you too! Don’t let yourself quit if it’s something that you believe is a tool that can get you closer to the person you want to be! But keep it positive, always. No need for bad energy that ruins your Karmaβ˜…β˜…).

With so many things on the list to focus on and, as always, searching methods on how to improve and keep learning more (never enough!), one of our resolutions is to give some space to better ourselves and balance the personal and work life, because the scale can’t just go tipping crazy to one side!
Controlling this workaholic streak we keep falling into is a priority from now on, since it has resulted in bumps on the road over time, specially health issues (which are stable now. Phew…).
Despite this, please don’t worry, we are aware that we have been posting seldom lately – mainly because sometimes we are asked not to share the works before they are made public by the client and we end up postponing in such a way that we lose track to post it later on…- We are resolute in changing this streak. We love sharing what we do with you and everyone that visits our dear Starlitden!

We hope you get some good vibes from us as we’re sending them out, trusting that we all keep striving and positively achieve our goals!
Stay inspired, everyone!β˜…β˜…


Bartkira StarTwo style! Vol 5



Hello everyone!β˜…β˜…
Today we bring you the page we did for the Bartkira project – Vol.5. (in addition to the ones we did for Vol.4! Check the post about it β–Ίhereβ—„ )
For those who are not familiar with the project, here’s the description on the Bartkira Roadshow youtube channel:

Bartkira is an animated parody mash-up of The Simpsons and Akira. Based on an idea by Ryan Humphrey articulated through comics, the concept was expanded with the Bartkira project, a comic collaboration of Simpsons fans, curated by James Harvey. In association with the comic, Moon Animate Make-Up producer Kaitlin Sullivan pitched the idea of an animated trailer to match and with the work of over fifty artists, produced the Bartkira animated trailer.

We had a lot of fun once again, as expected, but there was more work involved due to the different characters and rhythm of the action.
Despite the slow pace, this gave us an opportunity to turn what could be considered a “boring” page into something more into the Simpsons’ Universe, but not without being worried on how to translate “Akira” into “Simpsons”.


Squidnapping! Squid smack!

In the end we decided to bring a story within a story, hence the “squidnapping”, making this our favourite page from the ones we made. Well, besides the one with the appearance of Sideshow Bob, because… It’s Sideshow Bob.

Here are some of the stages of the page and also some character studies we did to get a better grip of each one of them.

We hope you enjoy them just as much as we enjoyed being part of this project!
Take care, everyone!β˜…β˜…

Summer is (already) here!



Hello Summer!β˜…β˜…

Now back to work…



Demon Love at Deviantart Return

Since we’re going back to submitting recent works to Deviantart (an art community online), we thought it would be a nice cross posting opportunity, since we’ve been wanting to post this fiery couple for quite a while.


In case you’re curious and haven’t had the opportunity, we invite you to check out our gallery page right β–Ίhereβ—„



We hope you like it!β˜…β˜…


Followers and Book of Zhu – StarTwo



Hello everyone!
Wonder no more, this looks and is officially a happy dance for reaching 200 followers here on our Starlit Den.

The happy critters entertaining you are Ruby and Jade, the characters to make an appearance on Jalek Moye’s visual novel named “Book of Zhu: Legacy”.
This was an amazing commission that challenged us to bring characters inspired on ourselves while following the guidelines of races and classes within the game’s universe.

“StarTwo is a small troupe of two lady rascals who perform for the masses, for their amusement and their own bread winning. They would surely tell you their name, but you’d pay with your life for such information thus, only their nicknames are known. Ruby, a Neko race black cat, draws the crowd’s attention with her illusions and together with Jade, a Xerin red fox, dazzles them with their wild dancing.”

We hope you’re curious enough to go over to the Book of Zhu website to know more about this amazing world that is “The Book of Zhu”!

And now last but certainly not least, we want to thank each and every one of our followers, the new and the long lasting, for the continuous support!β™₯
Thank you for giving us your attention and we’ll keep sharing with you a bit of ourselves with each new post.
Stay tuned!β˜…β˜…
