The Arcadia Clan
These are all the pictures Jessie has drawn in which I am directly or indirectly involved. That is, they are of me, of a character of mine, or for me. This is definately not all she has drawn, however, this is the definition I will go by. The vast majority of the pictures that I have come from her and this is by far the largest section aside from the main gallery.
Jessie is the secret identity of one Angie McClelland, a mild mannered animation student at CCAD in Columbus, Ohio. At the time of writing (August 13th 2000) she is 19. Like many other artists in the generally talented Gargoyles fandom, where I met her, she hopes to work for Disney some day. For now, she has an online comic, Dakota's Ridge, and it really wouldn't hurt to check it out.
I believe this is the very first picture anyone ever made for me. The result of a roleplay in Station 8 where Jessie tries to convince me that I need to protect her from Pokemon of all things because I owe her a favour. Picture by Jessie.
A picture from an RP related to the one mentioned above. Jessie does me a favour by protecting me from the scary Bremusa. Picture by Jessie.
The very first picture of Keebler, the sheep from my story "Nooit". So who cares that he's not supposed to have wings? The facial expression is perfect. Picture by Jessie.
After I informed Jessie of the wingless status of Keebler the sheep she drew this second version. Look mommy! No wings! Picture by Jessie.
Keebler, the sheep from "Nooit", while merely intended as a one note joke, has clearly gained more popularity than any other character. Especially Jessie seems quite fond of him, as demonstrated in this picture. Picture by Jessie.
A terrific picture and probably my favourite one. Based on a scene from "The Demon's Eye", another story I wrote, the matching phrase is "Keebler, I would appreciate it if you would NOT SCARE THE DRAGON!" The first time Nooit got fully drawn, and also the first time Polly, the blue dragon from the aforementioned story, makes an appearence in a picture. Picture by Jessie.
Truely a great picture in the litteral sense of the word, this is a picture of a lot of characters from the Arcadia Clan. From left to right, top to bottom: Kessalia, Arno, Robert, The Master, Poleithne, Damocles, Delphine, Kyshandra, Mika, Nooit, Jason, Jessie, Anatidae, Maradydd, Keebler and Corsica. Picture by Jessie.
Here we have Nooit, another character from the story "Nooit". This neat character picture is to my knowledge the only one I ever specifically requested. Picture by Jessie.
Polly gets into even more trouble. Picture by Jessie.
Me, Kessalia, Jason and Jessie all looking real cool and stuff. Picture by Jessie.
Jessie's remarkable output of Arcadia-related pictures earned her a promotion to baroness from the Master. More people got promoted that day. Among others I became duke of the Plains and portreeve of the West, though we are still not sure what this means, while one of my characters also got elevated to baronhood... Picture by Jessie.
DeLancy definately requires a new tailor. The large and thick captain as portrayed by Jessie.
And suddenly, Jessie decided to draw Perry from "The Demon's Eye". Isn't he fuzzy, as far as soldiers go? I like the way he has his jacket tied around his waist. Picture by Jessie.
More Perry, this time in uniform. The main purpose of this picture was to design a uniform for the Ward division of the Arcadian Army, something which had been sorely lacking. Design and picture by Jessie. Note the Ward crest: A sheep.
Perry and I get to look all tough and cool in this picture, based on a story Jessie's writing. We sure need a bath though. Picture by Jessie.
Kessalia loves seeing me with wings, particularly the white feathery kind. Lucky for her she has a Miracle Of Flight Gun. Picture drawn by Jessie and coloured by Kessalia.
During a roleplay in Station 8 my character was faced with the unusual problem of being turned into a great black dragon. It was later that day when, all in a days work, someone happily knocked down a support wall. Luckily I was around to make sure the ceiling stayed put. If there's anything missing from the picture it's people discussing who wants pizza and where to order. Picture by Jessie.
Clearly, being a great black dragon has its advantages too. For instance, you get a lot of respect, right? ... Right? Picture by Jessie.
When Jessie got turned into a black baby dragon in a short moment of dragon-hype, Malibu tried to take care of her as best as he could. Of course, everybody's a critic... Picture by Jessie.
Whoever said I was a harmless little Dutchman? This is me smiling for the camera. Actually, it is a picture inspired by "The Demon's Eye". Picture by Jessie.
I don't like to tease Jessie, it's just that... I love to tease her. This picture she sent to Kessalia who was away for some 7 weeks in some geology camp. The Dutchman dicing with Death. Picture by Jessie.
Finally a picture of Sirius, from "The Demon's Eye", and a rather cool one too. It is a depiction from a specific 'scene' from the story in which my story-version spends a lot of time looking mean. Picture by Jessie.
A late addition to the gallery due to the fact that I couldn't find it. Based on a story-idea yet to be used, Jessie, Jason and Anatidae join the Arcadian Army, Ward Division. That's the human devision. Picture by Jessie.
Bremusa adores Nooit, it seems. The way she keeps stealing him from me in chat almost makes me feel like I don't own the character anymore. She has her heart set on marrying him though, and obviously I won't stand for that! ... Will I? Picture by Jessie as a gift for Bremusa. Special gues star: Baby, the pet squirl!
A very quick sketch from Jessie to show me what she did to my hair when I asked her to cut it. Picture by Jessie.
For some unfathomable reason Jessie saw fit to draw me as a baby dragon. But aren't I just adorable!? Picture by Jessie.
A sketch from a part of the The Wolf and the Sheep story, where Jason shows his patience and mildmannered temper. Picture by Jessie.
A bunch of the Arcadia Clan people got inspired by the Olympic Games in Sidney and started discussing Arcadian Olympic games. Discussing events, competitors and winners, it quickly became appearent the Plains were going to do very well. Naturally, us Plainers were very enthousiastic. Picture by Jessie
An criminal investigation in Ward is a most interesting venture. Here we see Perry interrogating Keebler, the flying sheep, a scene from "The Wolf and the Sheep". Picture by Jessie
And look at what a pretty picture this is. Jessie worked extra hard on this one under the motto that it was about time to put some real work into a picture again. I must say, it looks quite pretty, doesn't it? Much charcoal has been sacrificed in my honour for this picture from "The Wolf and the Sheep". Picture by Jessie.
