Her Majesty, Jeaster Jem, is the highly irresponsible, self-centered, and quite powerful Earth Princess. She's mischievous at the best of times, and at worse, nothing is safe from her twisted, cartoonish sense of humor. She may be a preteen, but she wields her magical hammer like it's nothing, causing earthquakes with each mighty slam. Her armored dress is heavier than she is, yet she cartwheels and capers freely while wearing the rock-heavy clothing. She can freely manipulate the earth, twisting it and shaping it to her own personal playground.
I've been in a bit of a creative funk, so I tried getting myself out of it by just plain drawing this. I'll have to say, this is the most fun I've had in an hour-anna-half. The whole point was to get ridiculous. Like, Fantasy Ridiculous. Armor that no sane person would wear. Weapons no man could lift or would shatter upon a single hit (or both). Fancy powers. You know the drill. And it ended up being a character.
This ended up being an evolving design that grew in concept as I drew it (always the best of things). I just had the idea of some kind of magical princess (those aren't too common, right?) with strong connections to the Earth. The pose and hammer were the first things added in to the mix, and somewhere along the lines, I decided that she looked like a jester, and added that in via her crown and name. I was so pleased with the result that I've scanned it in and tossed it on here, just so that I have SOME activity. The only alterations I did were in Photoshop with some filters. I liked the old-parchment look that happened incidentally as I was changing the 'curves' to darken the lines, so I kept that and called it a day.
