Those Who Lead The Valley (Sketch) by ElsonWong Those Who Lead The Valley (Sketch) by ElsonWong
The story for the new ASHWORTH is starting to craft it's way through illustrations like these.


What you see here are the nomads of the Valley effected by the recent war between the Wolf & Bear Nations. Ruby, who is looking out from atop the cliff, is unable to comprehend the damage that two nations have done to each other after a sabotaged peace treaty.


This is a tale of two nations at war in the 'Valley' - it is divided by a great river called Melissa River (that was dedicated to the first lady who devised a unity between the two nations at the heart of the river - where water can be shared by all creatures equally).


The coloured drawing and additional details of the story will be up in the next few days.


Following that I'll be drawing another character that I admire who is created by another talented anthro-cartoon artist :iconann-jey: - she's got so many sexy bad-ass characters created since she started a portfolio on deviantART - do check them out! 8-)

Nope, I have no problems with the tablet close to me. No glare but the screen does get hot after prolonged use.

Yeah, but that was probably one of the problems, it was suffering too much from FT. One Piece shows that as long as you keep trying, you can accomplish or become anything you dreamed of, weather you had super powers or not. Fairy Tail however has problem that there's nothing but magic involved, while normal people can't do anything, it's what's been bothering me all the time.

"Hath we naught come to an agreement, then?
What Good can come from drawing a line on common ground when we all share the Earth's lifeblood?"

Really liking the development of the Story here: it gives a sensation of 'Time Limits' that give way to events, each at the most convenient of moments.

I like everything about the characters here: Chief Big Horn, Big Bear, Ruby, and Lone Wolf in the back...really nice job with the improved design!
I like the Tribal feel that the nomads have going on.

...Have you thought about the Element that will give one of the two parties the edge over the other? If so, what kind of Technology do they wield?
[Think the Dreadnought in "FFII" or the Carronade from "BOF IV".]

I really love this new desing of Ruby!, and I see you try to give your characters more realistic look based on their species, which is a very neat and amazing way on how you can pull this off! And I can almost depicture the whole story by just simply looking at this very scene you made,- she kinda reminds me of Tikal, the way she felt and described the tribes that were in conflict with each other, and this is what I see in Ruby :)
And now recenlty I love how you now describe each and every ASHWORTH pieces you have made, to give us the audience more insight in these characters, which is pretty helpful and makes us the audience more engage into this series : )

Keep the awesome work Elson, and I agree, Ann-Jey are amazing :heart:!

You're so kind to post feedback like this Missyuna, it is much appreciated as always. :)

And yes she will play the role of nature girl and using her healing powers to restore peace and order back into the Valley - but she feels that she is not strong enough to do so and needs guidance... Hmm... I wonder where Ashworth will come into this? :giggle:

After finishing this drawing (in full colour that is) I plan to draw some fan art for Ann-Jey's original characters. They are too cool to miss out on drawing them! ;)

While this may be a more...original look. I'm not too big on the change. What you had going on with Grand Hunter was fantastic, in my opinion. Sure, it was derived from a Sonic-esque style, but you had your own thing going on and it was amazing. But it's still nice to see you aren't quitting. Keep up the great work, man. I'm gonna have to do some rad fanart of Grand Hunter (as it was probably my favorite thing you've done so far).

Thanks for sharing your honest opinion! Though I'll have to disagree and say that the previous design still looked a little too close to the Sonic Adventure styles implemented in the games and Archie comics.

I aim to create a style uniquely new and not too far off from what I love drawing - which is anthro-cartoon style. ;)

Last time I checked up on your series, everything was more "Sonic-styled." Now, I have to say since it seems like everything took a huge turnaround. This new style is very nice, and much more unique. Keep it up.
