2018 – Here we go!

2018_STb

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 Karma★★).

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!★★

Bartkira StarTwo style! Vol 5

Standard

Bartkira_5_p210_teaser

Hello everyone!★★
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 ►here◄ )
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!

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.

Inktober 2016 – Day 29

Always be wary Mr. Wolf… It’s Halloween season and poisoned candy is a possibility~♥

Yay, in two days it will be our favorite holiday again! You better be careful out there and give some good thought about your costume for Trick-or-Treating, lest you attract the wrong type of crowd!

Halloween is starting to be more popular in our country nowadays but alas, this year we don’t have time to party. Is anyone dressing up this year? If so, what will your costume be? We’re always curious as to what everyone’s choice is when it comes to trick or treating!✦
