Welcome Space Cadet Lollipop


'She had graduated from the Academy on Rogus One just yesterday. When she found herself in the middle of a war zone here on Carelia.'

'Her lieutenant fell victim to a sneaky surprise attack, leaving the full weight of the platoon's command on her young shoulders.'

'An alien planet, new mates and an unexperienced leader. '

'Space Cadet (Lauri) Lollipop at your service! Pleased to meet you.'



This is a re-post from my Instagram account OceanDreamIllustration hence the black borders.

Several things had happened. I have been working on manga and anime style and human form in general for a while now. And at some point I designed this character and gave it some faintly military features.

Then, I was thinking that manga and comics go really well with markers. The only ones I owned were water based Tombows, which I like, but I really am a noob with markers. I think they worked fine, though I had a little problem with the paper, which was a bit thin for the markers. Anyhow, as a result of using markers I ended up with some really popping colors.

Military + popping colors + my love for sci-fi/space = born was 'Space Cadet Lollipop'.

Of course, when I posted it to Instagram, I had to add the mini-story :)

Let me know what you think!


Here is my step-by-step process from pencil to ink to marker:



Thanks for reading and viewing. I hope you enjoyed!

A cute drawing, @oceanbee :) I like how you designed her space suit and I love her pose and expression :) She looks like she's talking to a wrist-phone thingy and she's feeling quite confident about her mission, judging from the smile on her face :D

The design is very retro sci-fi and that is one of the styles that I usually find very charming :D

Love the thorough step by step presentation, also !

Good work <3


Thanks @veryspider! I had a lot of fun designing her and I'm glad her confidence shows. Since this one, which was the first, I made three more pics with her, but I have not colored them yet.

Great artwork!!!
