Drowkaki was finally upgraded to Poteto 5.1 then to Wax Poteto. A much needed upgrade after so many years without change and with all these bugs plaguing us. We had to trash our custom MODS but it seem that wax poteto include some of the stuff we had. Avatar(go in your profile) and picture uploading. It also come with some new features as well. The most important one is to be able to re-touch everything, including SHI-PAINTER pictures , non animated oekaki and uploaded stuff. I'm sorry we didn't do this upgrade sooner. Now the board is pretty much lifeless, but i hope now that approving new accountsl became optional, that some life will return around here on this fantasy-only oekaki board.

Wow...I haven't been here in awhile. Loong while. Hello all you new people I haven't met yet! :D

Just two of my little people sitting in a feild. I would have tweaked it a bit more in some areas (...grass...) but I can't leave my computer on all night. Curse you Shi >>

Sumi @ Saturday, February 25th 2006, 3:47 PM
Yeah, I know how that is - no retouch. T_T Well, considered you were a little hurried in the end it still turned out pretty nice. I really like the girl's face and the shading around her lips. I'm also drawn to the lineart of the boy's face - very nice and smooth. Maybe next time you could smooth your shading out like you usually do and put some details into the clouds, if you're not rushed again. =3

Kia @ Tuesday, February 28th 2006, 7:27 PM
Urg yes. I try and avoid using Shi-painter anymore. It kind of slows my computer down too and I don't know why.

Anyway. :D I have to say, I love the way you draw the ears. They are just so uniquely done in my opinion, and so big. I don't know what they remind me of, it's something... cant... put my finger on it. Uuuuh. Well. I like them. I love the profile of the boy, the nose and the lips, the jaw line. Im inlove with how it came out. It's a shame you had to rush, because I think this picture, though totally awesome now, would of been even greater if you had had more time. I personally love the simple clouds in the background.xD I dont know why either. It just... grabs onto my spleen and pulls. I love the simple clouds.

Nice work. :3

Prismatic @ Saturday, March 4th 2006, 1:54 AM
Welcome back around? heh.. I feel you there I never really have the time to draw anymore, but I still love to come by and see everyone elses stuff, and all the new people!
Anyhow, as always you do beautiful art. I always love your poses, hands and faces! Your profiles are always magnificent~~ They look pretty happy just hanging out, I wish I could get out on a nice day like that sometime. I wish you would of had more time for the shading of what you wanted.

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Tuesday, March 7th 2006, 9:04 PM
Nice line work and the way you used the solid shadeing makes it look like they are under a tree, thier shadows broken up by the light through the leaves.

Adult for blood. Albeit crappy blood but....whatever. Just felt like playing with tones a bit...and messing with perspective. I need practice with both o.o;

Ikena @ Thursday, September 1st 2005, 9:35 PM
I dont think its adult, I like his hair =3

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Monday, October 10th 2005, 3:14 AM
Interesting use of tonage (something I've never been able to use even remotley well and so I dock my hat to you for even trying). Nice tattoos as well.

Haven't drawn here in a loooong time. Actually, I haven't oekakied in a long time. So....hello again! :D Just a little doodle of Odjin...I love that type of expression

Segzhan @ Wednesday, April 13th 2005, 9:21 PM
Hehe, cool! I really like the style and the coloring!

The_Infamous_Pumpkin @ Thursday, April 14th 2005, 6:07 PM
Yes! Very nice. I love the nice smooth lines and solid coloring.

mazilwolf @ Monday, April 18th 2005, 2:32 PM
like the others have said, the style and colouring rocks, nice grin too *tries to grin like that* hee hee! good expression!

Relvane @ Thursday, April 21st 2005, 3:49 AM
The lineart is clean and smooth ^^ I really like the shading on his face.

Chinh @ Thursday, April 21st 2005, 10:23 AM
*gasp* O___O what evil is he up to? LOL yesyes, nice expressions \(^__^)V
I want his earings =(..........I had a similar before....though my sis stepped on it...*sigh* I like the solid shadings =) and the moon looks so blurry and soft...*eats it* hehehehe \(^__^)/

olsie @ Sunday, April 24th 2005, 10:47 PM
I sometimes get impatient with that shi painter... but you use it fairly nicely! I can see in the future if you still use this program to produce drawings you will come out with even more outstanding pictures. Keep up teh good work! -hugs-

Prismatic @ Wednesday, April 27th 2005, 3:20 PM
Oh~ very nice. You should come around and oeakaki more often.. yes. I really really think you captured his expression wonderfully. And the shading on his face and hair is marvelous. Really, it has a lot of depth to it. I like his eyes and the glints of light on them, and once again.. the expression! Very pretty background as well.~ You do a really nice job with solid shading.

christabel @ Thursday, April 28th 2005, 6:14 PM
schwa! Almost ooks like it could be a frame from an anime. X3

kestrelmas @ Wednesday, May 4th 2005, 12:38 PM
AWESOME expression! And the solid shading rocks!

Just kidding. Cool pic, and nice coloring!!

[185] Artist: Kaiera | Title: Little Drow | Time: 32 min


Kaiera @ Monday, February 7th 2005, 3:29 AM
My newest character: Felix the Drow. Personally, I think his story is quite interesting.....involving the death of his love and him searching his own soul following her death. I liked the couple, but I decided to kill her 'cause I'm sadistic :D I love a sad love story. Anyway, the necklace he wears has her ring on it. He never takes it off. Now, he's just looking at the sky for some reason. Thinking I suppose. The bg is totally random......heh. The coloring....I was just playing around.

KHatch @ Monday, February 7th 2005, 4:08 AM
I really like his flowy hair and the sad expression on his face. The mouth and eye really convey his emotion. I like it a lot!

darkrose @ Monday, February 7th 2005, 5:03 AM
Cool! I love the background, it reminds me of tie-dye. Nice job with the shading and folds, and his hair is particularly well done. Excellent work overall. The little details like the necklace and the collar really make this piece, well done.

olsie @ Monday, February 7th 2005, 11:52 AM
Well crap! (That his love died) The BG can be of something burning I suppose; that's what it most reminds me of...
And he could look above; because he would always look at the stars w/ his lover? It would make him very sad everytime he looked at the night sky everytime after her death. Sounds like a cliche thought; but this picture makes that lil mini story in mah head xD
The highlight that looks alittle out of place compared to the others is the one on his shoulder, because it seems to be in the wrong direction. and A highlight on his cheek would look right too. :)
I like the look he's givin' off; you are getting better and better at profiles :)

Kamourian King @ Monday, February 7th 2005, 11:00 PM
awww my stories are like that too XP i love the sky ^^ and the ring/ necklace reminds me of my story... (( but its a lockett, not a ring ^^;))

Karasu @ Tuesday, February 8th 2005, 12:40 AM
well, though you say that the background is random, it so happens to be my fav. part here in this picture! I think that maybe you could have done just a littttttle better on the shading of the shirt, but otherwise I really like this. What a sad story though!

catboi incubus mishi @ Tuesday, February 8th 2005, 3:00 PM
He's so pretty. :) Poor little guy, havin' his girlfriend die.. I really love the colors here, although I think perhaps the lighter green could have been a little darker. Wow, I hope that made sense. His shirt is just like the one I'm wearing today, except mine is black with stripes on the collar. x) Like Olsie said, you're getting a LOT bnetter with profiles and that's exciting - I love seeing artists I like improving! Yay! :D I love love love his hair. <3333 I also just the background, it almost looks like he's looking at the Aurora Borealis. I probably spelled that wrong. Keep up the good work, Kaiera! <3

Totenmaske @ Wednesday, February 9th 2005, 7:07 AM
Kaiera, there is always some kind of ?sick? fascination with tragic tales of lost love ? though saying that, I too have a rather guilty pleasure of enjoying pieces that actually work the sense of emotional lose into characters. Though it always tends to be the girlfriend that is lost in quite a few character tragedies ? which somewhat hits home on so many merits for a few people ? thus bringing a little more emotion to a piece than what is truly there. But overall the impact of the back-story really delivers in this image and this character, Kaiera, presents to the viewer a rather wonderful piece.

Particularly in the colouring in which you bring out the sunken/sorrowful look to his face. I love the lighting to his dark skin and the slight lack of colouring in the eye to give that slight ?wet look? (lack to me is the fact that you didn?t complete the pupil) which is such a nice little touch of realism the sense of emotion in the image. The fold work in this image is rather nicely done ? though for some reason I always think green comes across too plastic like when you go into lighting (not you in general, just solid hues of green tend to create a rather odd effect when doing lighting on fabric ? from personal experience as well as what I view here). But clothing wise everything seems fine, and the thick fabric that is used to hang the ring around his neck is a nicely done in deforming the collar of his shirt. The ring though seems a little deformed? maybe you could work that into the story of how she died? slight distortion of the ring and the way she ?passed on.?

Killing off characters seems to be something people do, even though at times we find that we need to return reestablish the dead character ? mostly in some kind of ploy of rendering a moment before they died, and that is something I recommend you do Kaiera ? show us a moment before she died, that would be interesting. Other than that little personal comment, I think you did a wonderful job overall in this image ? particularly in colouring the hair, it is so hard to work shading on white hair. The background though something you just did, is very pleasing, and frankly something I particularly love a lot about this image. Though I particularly like everything about this image ? the line art, the colouring, the character?s emotion. Wonderful post, I hope to see more ;3

Prismatic @ Thursday, February 10th 2005, 10:03 AM
Felix.. yaay! Even though the background is so random I think it's great. I love the mixture of colors.
The shadowing and highlights on his shirt are really nice. In fact, the solid shading is pretty great. Nice profile~ And the coloring of his hair is really pretty.

Ikena @ Sunday, February 13th 2005, 4:49 PM
aaw poor guy!
tho i really like his hair and the way you colored it =3

Kaiera @ Tuesday, January 11th 2005, 1:22 AM
I just don't know....that background was just totally random, although cute in jy opinion. I guess it's all due to the fact that I'm in a very good mood right now. Not sure why. The character is random too...just some demon guy giving a thumbs up to whoever happens to look in his direction. The white on the shirt was just an expirament...I don't know if I like it. Well, have a happy day! :D

Lady_Sea @ Tuesday, January 11th 2005, 2:09 AM
Those are some wild nails *o* but cool nonetheless! I like the nice clean bright colors. It reflects your good mood ^_^, especially in his expression. The shading and lighting is excellent and that sun in the background is majorly kawaii. Nice job ^_^.

olsie @ Tuesday, January 11th 2005, 3:26 AM
There you go; you now have a ladies' man demon; if you want to have a variety of personalities with your characters xD you have to have one of those xD
A common BG; but it fits :)
The highlights could have had more time spent to make them look more glossy -nod- and the thumb of his looks a tid bit off with the rest of his hand; and his pose would have been cute with the other hand waving (the one we don't see) in my opinion ^-^

darkrose @ Tuesday, January 11th 2005, 6:06 AM
Heh, at first I thought the white was tears, which added to the punk theme. So I've been playing Paper Mario 2, and this just appeals to me for some reason... the silly spiral sun and the happy blue sky with the big gothy demon giving the audience his 'thumbs up'. It's too cute, I just love it. Beautiful job with his hair and hand, it looks too big for a normal human, but it really adds to the 'demon' effect.

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 11th 2005, 6:35 AM
I totally love the sunshine. The hair is really nice on this guy and his huge hand is a cool effect, personally. I like the shading on his armbands.

catboi incubus mishi @ Thursday, January 13th 2005, 2:54 PM
What a handsome bishounen, Kaiera!
Anyway, I have to point this out, because this is what my eye went to first - his huge hand. I admit, I draw large hands, but this one, is, shall we say, out of hand. It's much too large. ^_^;;; Anyway, moving on.. is he wearing leather? I like the effort you put into shading it, but there's black between the white lines, making it look unfinished. I think, if you had used watercolour, it would have looked better. What I do whenever I draw someone wearing black, I actually make it a dark grey so that I can use both dark and light tones on it. :3 I like his arm bands, but there's a touch of white on the inside of the lower one - did you forget to shade there? o: Anyway, I do think he's a very nice bishounen and keep up the good work. <3

Kaede @ Thursday, January 13th 2005, 8:17 PM
Aw he looks fun. I really like his claws, and then his hair. His hair is awesome.
The horns are too aswell. The coloring on the skin, was nicely done aswell. I really like the sun too. x3

Just my little Angel sitting on the roof :D and for some reason.....I'm obsessed with night scenes right now. O_o; Anyway, glad to see Drowkaki up and running again! I love this board =D

Here's hoping that everyone's holidays are going well!!

kyokurrychan @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 8:16 AM
night scenes are teh good ^_^ i like this pic a lot! <3 reminds me of dark-kun :glomp dark:

LunarMnM2004 @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 5:37 PM
Oh awsome!
The sky rules to high heaven.
And the light commin off the halo is so neat!
Keep up the great work!

Rigga Mortis @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 6:32 PM
Awesome starry blackground! Mm. Onto the guy, he has some neat wings, and his hair is nice and shiny. I like his shirt, but maybe too much folding? Hmm. Either way, you did a great job shading and highlighting with this. The line-art and drawing style is nice, too.

Olsie @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 7:25 PM
You are getting alot better to tell you that much!
The only thing that looks a wee bit funky is the roof; it doesn't have the flat look; you'd have to play with the shading for that ^_^
Is he a 600th random? xD or one of your named dudes?

I gotta draw something soon on oekaki >>;;;

Kaiera @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 7:47 PM
Olsie>> Yes.....you need to do an oekaki you bad person you xP I agree that the roof looks kinda....not roof-ish. It's probably due to the fact that I did this just before bed. Beware the late-night oekakis. ((by the by, he does have a name....Metratron...I've had him for a while, but I don't draw him alot))

Sephie Strife @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 10:19 PM
O_O Shiny... halo.... shiny......
OMG, the wings look so great. I really love the shading, especially on the shirt and the skin. Sooo neat.
I really like those bushes in the background, too! X3 Great job, that pic is awesome!!

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 1:22 AM
it's a very cute angel, I 'specially like the glowy halo. Great attention to the lighting on it, too... I love how it reflects on his hair and shoulder, and how the lighting is all soft and stuff.
Ready for some comment? I really like this piece. The composition is good (paying attention to the rule of thirds and such, which is important in my book) and the picture is well drawn, with stylized but sound shading and beautiful lineart. Now here's something I think you could work on that would be cool: look at some nightscapes and notice the color change the moonlight has on things. Things that would in bright daylight be one color take on a blueish or paler hue that can be quite striking. I think that if you're into doing night scenes, that might be a nifty effect to try out. Just a suggestion! I still really like what youv'e done here, just as is. I wouldn't suggest changing it.
One tip that might help is the stars.. try varying not only the size (like I see you've done) but also the translucence. That'll help make smaller stars look further away, and provide the illusion of an exceptionally clear night.
That's all I've got for ya! This really is a fantastic image... kudos.

Queen_Godzilla @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 5:13 AM
Yeah, he does kinda look like Dark. Must be the purple hair and black wings.

The thing that caught my eye was the halo. It's the brightest thing in the picture, even brighter than the moon. It's just making my eye catch.

My critique would be the shading/highlighting job. It looks a bit rushed in this piece. (And, I can see the stars through the bushes. Oops XD.)

ChronosKit @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 7:45 AM
I lurve the hair and the wings *steals halo and runs*

Skittles-chan @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 9:03 AM
I really like the stars, and the lineart is fairly neat. The way the tops of the trees are transparent is really cool, since most people don't consider that there would be bits where stars would shine through in real trees. I really like your shading style as well, though it looks a bit messy in just a few places on his wings (the tips mainly.) Also, his arms look a little unnaturally straight. Really that's about the only critique I have ^^ Everything else looks pretty good

BreeWinde @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 9:03 PM
Your coloring style is simple and cute, but I love it. Great job. I love his hair and the shirt. Wonderful job.

oni shi @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 10:37 PM
awww he so cute!i like the halo glow, and the position the fold in the shirt seem a little intense but somehow i like them hehe *glomps*

Kamourian King @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 5:02 PM
black wings ^^ is he a angle of death?? knowing you, he prob is ^^

you are improving my friend ^^

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 4:46 PM
He's pretty cool, just chillin' like that. I like the solid colouring, especially the stark-white hilighting. He's so suburbian! XD WAI!!!

Starisan @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:49 PM
Just wanted to say, great avatar and I really like the effect used on the halo in this picture.

Carbuncle @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 3:17 AM
ohh this is soo kwel I like the wings this looks so neat but he looks like he is on speed... but thats okay ! I love the BG it's soo kwel well keep it up

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 7:42 AM
i like the hair. its very neon-ish. the black wings are neat. And the clothing and body are nicly drawn and highlighted. and shaded. Though i thnk more shading is in order because its night.

Chime @ Wednesday, January 12th 2005, 6:30 PM
I dont know why, but something about the expression bothers me. It just seems so out of place in the dark colors and starry sky. =X I dont mean to be a nit-picker, Im just saying.

Your clothing looks fabulous =) On the sleeve, it almost feels as if I could poke it and it would move O_o
I also like the bangles/bracers - they are completely colorless except the shine. Nice touch.

Then - the sky looks great. Its not just a solid color, but a series of blues that add realism to it. The moon should be clearer around the actual edges, for it looks like a circular cloud hanging there.

All-in-all great picture =)
