What Was Missing -Epilogue- by illeity What Was Missing -Epilogue- by illeity
MS, PS

Sometimes, someone else has to tell you that you're good enough.

The 4th panel line is probably the hardest part of the work. I was already finished with the art when I decided what it should be. Sometimes, as artists, we have to put our foot down and say that our artwork is good enough.
Perfection gives diminishing returns and just makes us tired, frothing from discontent.

did SOMENONE ever say "i never said you have to be perfect" in some episome? Cause i know (know,love,kill myself for) another adventure time comic with this phrase as the name. It just cant be coincidence e-e

Marcy's face is all red, so Finn assumes Marcy has been to the Fire Kingdom too many times that it made it red, even though the reasons for it are quite different :)

Yeah, given the concept of the episode, I might do something like that when it comes out. I'll keep making comics as long as there are great stories waiting to be told :) And thank you.


Oh yeah, welcome to DeviantArt :)

Lol, it took you long enough :) There's a lot of fun to be had here.
You should also set up a Tumblr account while you're at it. The fandom is even crazier out there :)

Several DA artists keep tumblr accounts so they can have more viewers to their artworks :) Other times, they have tumblr accounts so they can share funny photos, gifs and music and stuff that won't normally be posted here in DA, so check it out :)

Look around DA and check if the artist has a tumblr blog. It'll help you see how they do things

Hmm, I better make a journal entry indexing my comics... :)

Finn is implicitly asking why Marcy has a red face. He thinks it's because Marcy hangs around the Fire Kingdom too much— but the comic's circumstances speak differently :)

Real canon couples are rare in cartoons. Alongside that, acceptance of queer couples in TV is still a long ways off so I'm not too keen of that happening.

Still, we can always depend on subtext to get us through :)

I can see your personal touches in your fanart of AT and it just keeps on getting better. :D This comic makes a person want to :squee:

Thanks dude! Actually, this artwork is the midway point between "What Was Missing -deleted scene-" and "Incendium -interlude-". I'm still figuring out how to merge AT style and my own style because I don't want to get stuck in the AT style all the time. :)

It makes sense. But I can see how you have slowly added your own touches to Marceline and PB's drawing style. But I'm sure that you'll get there. Keep at it :)

ehehehe So adorable! =D And the 4th panel is definitely my fave here. The coloring (or lack thereof) really gets the emotion of the moment across.

I appreciate it! That 4th panel was the most difficult of all to pull off.
In my working draft I had other versions:
"You're already everything to me"
"You're just right"

It was about balancing affection with rainbow-vomit inducing sweetness :D

Nah, I feel I've done enough fanart from "What Was Missing". There are a few half-formed ideas, but nothing worth making a formal work with. It'll be best to wait for season 4 with Bubbline fanart so I'll have more fuel to add to the fire :)
