Worlds banner by Candle-stic
Worlds banner
So hyped for worlds! :D. Semifinals start tonight. 
So this is the reason I haven't been able to upload any of my comic in a while. I was asked to do a banner for my university's lol club fb page for the finals social they're holding next friday.
It took me quite a bit as I tried to put my best work forward. Honestly, I tried a lot of things I haven't done before and I couldn't be happier with the result :D. And look! My first ever signed picture. 
Anyway, I took a lot of inspiration from the current and previous worlds teasers and songs. And the title was inspired by a fellow uqlol member's work.
Cheers to all you other league fans. Hope you're all enjoying the world championship as much as my friends and me :).
A Short Comic: The Great Race pg11 by Candle-stic
A Short Comic: The Great Race pg11
Well, sorry about how long this took me. I'm not super happy with it. I guess after how much I've improved recently it really feels flat. But I wanted to keep things looking the same and I didn't want to redo all of their colour palettes. Plus I kinda just wanted to get it done. 
But I still enjoyed making it. I love Veigar's 'event horizon' it turned out awesome! Even if its bigger than normal and knocked everybody inside it over. I was taking artistic liberty =P. And I love his little speech. 
Hopefully the next page won't take so long. But uni's about to get busier so... I guess we'll see.
Enjoy :)

All characters and settings belong to Riot.

Risk by Candle-stic
Thought I'd add a picture of Risk without all the paint on him. I hope I drew him right. I love the colouring of him; it was so much fun.

Character belongs to J.M.Spellbound on Fanfiction.
Bumblebee's by Candle-stic
Hey look another transformers picture. Which, you guessed it, is from Jaycee's series 'the Guardians Guild'. Bumblebee and Risk decided to do some painting. Well, actually Bumblebee did. Risk was just keeping him company. Don't you just love his finished piece :D? I do. And I'm really happy with how my own piece came out. 

Hope you like it. If you do you should totally check out J.M.Spellbound's stories on Fanfiction they're incredible. I've had a lot of fun drawing cute Bumblebee antics from it.
Ironhide's Gift by Candle-stic
Ironhide's Gift
Another transformer pic :) again from Jaycee's Guardians Guild series. This time it's from "All Roads lead Home" where Bumblebee gives Ironhide the picture for New Vorns. So much cuteness! I couldn't resist drawing it :D
Anyway, I'm really happy how it turned out. I used a couple of tips from H.L.War which helped heaps. Thank you my friend :). Still feel like I have a way to go but I'm so happy with how much I've improved too.
Ok so this one I actually was tagged by :hlwar:

1. You must post these rules.
2. Each person has to share 10 facts about themselves.
3. Answer the 10 questions asked by the person who tagged you and make up 10 questions for the 10 you tag. 
4. Choose 10 people and put their icon in your journal. 
5. No tag-backs.

So facts about me:
1. I'm studying mechanical engineering at university 
2. I'm a Christian
3. I love cartoons and superheroes
4. I have an incredibly vivid imagination which added to my intellectual mindset tends to lead to some very detailed results.
5. I'm a perfectionist and a completer-finisher which together have caused me some problems getting things done on time.
6. I tend to get stressed a lot =P
7. I love making people laugh and smile
8. I'm a whiz at maths
9. I feel vulnerable presenting things I've created to people because of how much I put into them
10. I love music whether it's listening, singing or dancing to it. If I don't want to do one of these things then something's usually wrong.

1. Which of your deviations is the memorable/meaningful and why?
Rose by Candle-sticThis piece still is one of my best. It's memorable because this was the first realistic piece I attempted in colour and it was with this success that I officially moved onto drawing with colour pencils. That's also the reason it's my icon pic.
2. In your opinion, which is more important: story or characters?
Both are important. But to me, it's the characters that make it :).
3. If you could change one thing about your style(art, writing, whatever) what would it be and why?
Probably my writing style. It takes me so long to write anything and it tends to come off quite youngish. It's something I really have to work hard at.
4. What is the craziest thing you've ever done?
Well, I'm not really the sort of person who does crazy stupid stuff. Probably the time my friends and I dressed up and acted out parts of Merlin and medieval times at the Castle near where I live. That was pretty funny and crazy.
5. What themes do you like to explore in your art?
I don't know if I have anything in particular. I just draw when I feel like it and I like experimenting. 
6. When was the last time you tried something outside your comfort zone, and what were the results?
My boyfriend is always trying to get me to push the edges of my comfort zone when it comes to socializing and/or officially talking to people (E.g. Phone interviews, applying for jobs, etc.). Usually they don't end as bad as I was making them out to be.
7. Name something you dislike about DeviantArt.
Trying to link stuff is really cumbersome. 
8. What kind of creative patterns, routines or rituals do you have?
Um well, I write on the bus to and from uni. I tend to draw in lectures. I sing and dance while doing housework and cooking. And I blow bubbles while washing my hands =P.
9. What hobby would you like to pursue one day?
I really want to learn archery one day.
10. What makes a "hero" in your opinion?
Someone who puts the needs of others before his/her own. Someone who wants to make a difference in the world, whether that's a big thing or a small thing. A lot of the time we tend to focus in the big heroes: superman, famous people. But sometimes the smallest action could change the world for someone, then you become their hero. After all, the biggest heroes in our lives when we're young are our parents. 

1. If you could have any super power what would it be?
2. What's your favourite movie?
3. Your all time favourite character (from book, tv series, movie, etc.)?
4. One of your funniest memories?
5. If you found a genie or a shooting star or something else that could grant wishes would you still use them if you knew they would come at an equally high price?
6. If you could have any pet (possible or impossible/ fantasy or real) what would it be and what would you call it?
7. What's your favourite game and why?
8. Do you have any siblings?
9. What's your most valuable possession?
10. One thing you're proud about your work (drawing, writing, etc.)

I'm not really all that big on tagging people so do it if you want to :)

:party: :heart: :tighthug:
Candle-stic Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks for the birthday wish :) Yes I had a great time even if the weather here atm is cyclonic. My family and boyfriend spoiled me silly and I am so glad to have been able to spend the time with them. No problem :) you're a great writer and I'm glad to have made a difference in supporting you. Great to hear from you.
Hug :happybounce: 
hlwar Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2015
Aww, you are absolutely welcome, m'dear!! :tighthug: I'm glad to hear you had a wonderful birthday, and yay for being spoiled!! XD Did you make off like a bandit and eat way too much cake?! But oh my, cyclonic weather? (O_o) That's pretty intense; how bad did Mother Nature get? I admit, I'm a big fan of storms, even though their unpredictability can be a tad frightening.

Thank you for your wonderful review again, by the way! You're just the best and I greatly appreciate it!! :heart:

Nah, don't have that much of a sweet tooth. My parents got me an awesome cake though :D.

Well Australia was hit by two cyclones that day =P. It didn't actually hit us specifically though since we're too far south. But it did mean there was lots of rain around then and some of the roads flooded making it hard to get places. It made for an interesting yet still awesome day :).

No problem :D I was excited to see you'd posted. I hope you are doing well and am looking forward to whenever you post again Hug

tehhonya Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2015
Hi Steph, thanks for adding me to your watch list! :D Did you like any of the things i've made? You never know, you might get a nice little package one day if you really like something.... :p Loved your stuff too, now I just have to find time to read your fan fics as well. Thanks, from Amy :)
Candle-stic Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey Amy, it's nice to hear from you :). Been a while. Yes, your stuff is beautiful. I love all the intricate details in your jewelry and your teddies are cute :). Do you make them all from scratch? Haha thanks :) glad that you like them and don't feel too pressured to read them, I'm just happy that you like my stuff.
tehhonya Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015
Pretty much everything is made from scratch (except clasps really). For my jewellery even some of my jump rings are made by hand. And all the teddies are made from scratch, and hand sewn (fur is not friendly with my sewing machine :p ). But by hand sewing them i can get the pieces to fit better and do finer details. Although noses are horrible. Whose idea was it that teddies and soft toys needed noses??!?
Candle-stic Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh wow. That's amazing. Haha, but noses make them look cuter :D.

Oh hey! Candlestic, it's nice to find you here! This is Vitani from I was at your profile and clicked the link to view your OC artwork for Mariette, who is super-cute, by the way. :heart: 

Anyway, I spend more time on deviantART so I figured I'd stop by and say hello. I hope you're doing well, and thank you for everything! Happy Holidays!

Candle-stic Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey Vitani, Hi!
Thank you. I'm glad you like her. Yes, I usually do too. Even though I write my passion is and always will be in drawing.
Happy New Year!
