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.

Getting closer to what i'm looking to capture between the two...but not quite yet....=_=

Prismatic @ Saturday, March 5th 2005, 8:48 PM
This is beautiful! Your work is always all sorts of neat, and of course this is no exception.
The expressions you captured are simply amazing! They look so marvelous together, and the anatomy from what I can tell is fantastic. Very pretty use of colors.. and I like the shineyness on their faces. I hope to see more to come soon and that you do capture what you were hoping for!~

mazilwolf @ Sunday, March 6th 2005, 5:41 AM
wow, this one better than the last one!!!
i dont think it looks as dramatic though... but still good in the shine of the face like prismatic said.

kyasha @ Sunday, March 6th 2005, 6:27 PM
Just a question...is the blonde one female or male? I see so many pretty boys in anime I don't know which is which hahahaha. >.>

Love the shiny-ness of their skin :D

Neko Girl Star @ Monday, March 7th 2005, 12:03 AM
oooo...again I love it...your first one was a bit better, but this still looks unbelieveable

Ruka-poo @ Wednesday, March 9th 2005, 7:16 PM
:OO I love the colors you use - and the sketchy look of the picture.

And the shinyness xD

keep it up, this is awesome <33

Mouse @ Wednesday, March 9th 2005, 8:07 PM
Don't watch the show or recognize the characters, don't believe I've seen them before either. Lovely faces, expressions.. It makes me curious about the show.

bakabaka @ Friday, March 11th 2005, 1:56 PM
I haven't seen this movie in ages. =3 Is good though, yus.

I like D's face especially. I love those eyes (more like eyelids) of his, just 'cause the placement is perfect. And the nooose. Wonderful colors are usual, too, Karasu.

The whole mood of the pic rawks. *chews on the girl's hair* Pretteh. =3

Queen_Godzilla @ Tuesday, April 12th 2005, 7:21 PM
Awh, you should try this again. It's so romantic and I'd like to see more of your attempts at it. Your attempts until you get what you wanted in the first place, even!

And, OH MY GOD, D's face. o_o So... well, romantic XD. It's very simple in terms of color and line, but so very expressive. I can't think of what else to say, except PLEASE TRY THIS AGAIN :D

It's a lovely subject. ^_^

I really don't like this one as much as I thought I would when is tarted it....so...I'll do another one later, or delete this one or something. Anywya, it's a fan art of Doris and D from Vampire Hunter D for those who cant tell or who haven't seen the movie : P

mazilwolf @ Friday, March 4th 2005, 5:09 PM
have not seen teh movie, but meh!!!!
beautiful pic! its really dramatic! all teh colours are soft and pretty =0
i like teh way it all curls round the younger loking one, as if the wind thats blowing wants to protect him. beautiful....
*gazes admirably*

Neko Girl Star @ Friday, March 4th 2005, 6:43 PM
awww...I just saw the movie and loved it...Poor D....those two are so cute...I love it it looks awsome

Ikena @ Saturday, March 5th 2005, 12:57 PM
karasu! =3
Well i havent seen the movie either but i llike this pic! is so soft and nice, I love how your lineart is blue/purpleish instead of the typical black =3

catboi incubus mishi @ Saturday, March 5th 2005, 2:41 PM
Karasu Art = Love. Absolute. I love it so much.. :D

kyasha @ Sunday, March 6th 2005, 6:25 PM
Holy crap, at first I thought this was a fanart of Gankutsuou...I got excited....but nope, the count wouldn't look that pretty (hahaha).
Neat way of using blue as the lineart! :D

Prismatic @ Monday, March 7th 2005, 8:44 PM
Very nice use of watercolors. The picture has such a flow to it. I like the blue line art, it makes it appear somehow wispy or something. Excellent job on the profiles! And your ears are really good! I don't know many that do them that well. I enjoy their expressions and the intensity about them, even in such a soft piece.~~

bakabaka @ Friday, March 11th 2005, 2:02 PM
I like this one more out of the two you've done. =3 The flow to it's better. ^_^ But that's just my opinion.

I absolutely love the girl's face in this. She looks so happy. I really like how you did her hair too. Looks exactly like that in the movie. ^^ D looks wonderful too, 'specially his hair and that hat of his.

You're so talented with that watercolor tool. *nods* And with your color choices. No color ever looks out of place in your pieces.

Beautiful piece.

Karasu @ Tuesday, February 8th 2005, 12:38 AM
Cute, isn't she? I just got this image in my head of this rebel demon who wants to be a normal girl....heeehhhh

Queen_Godzilla @ Tuesday, February 8th 2005, 1:02 AM
And she has a demon name like Akasha Slashvixen (given to her by her mother of course) and so she wants to go by a normal human name like Mildred or Jenny. *Snrk!*

Haha, nice expression. She looks very bored, but also wry. The colors are everywhere in this picture, which is your style and why I like it. Just gives it more of a traditional medium's feel. Heh. And the added piece o' hay. Awesome.

Cai @ Tuesday, February 8th 2005, 2:58 AM
Personally, I like Mildred. She looks like a Mildred.

Anyway! I like the eyes, for some reason. I can never draw eyes with that expression... *cough* It's late, and I'm doing homework, so excuse any vagueness.

Oh, and I have a thing for curling horns. And the ones you drew are very very nice indeed, even being sketchy. :3

(Edited on February 8, 2005, 3:38 am)

darkrose @ Tuesday, February 8th 2005, 10:01 AM
That is... disturbingly cute. her expression is fantastic, and the little red snap barettes are a wonderful touch. Her hair is just the right consistancy, which is awesome, and the horns add just a touch of the not-normal that really sets it all off. The colors are warm and soft with just the right amount of contrast. Great job.

catboi incubus mishi @ Tuesday, February 8th 2005, 2:56 PM
Karasu, your work is always so fun to look at. I love how you always put the pink on their noses! <33 Her expression is cute, along with the piece of grass. XDD And her horns! Yay! You should really develop a story about her. <3

olsie @ Wednesday, February 9th 2005, 3:20 AM
You might have drawn Terry a long time ago...I'm not shure o-o I've looked on the net and there are similarties to my OC's so we'll never know. xD

Those Eyes rock; the creepy vibe rolls off them! Lovin' the simplicity of this and the coloring; in other words; great sense of style! Olive green Fits the theme :)

Totenmaske @ Wednesday, February 9th 2005, 5:37 AM
Karasu, I always look forward to your images, as some have said ? your images are always fun to look at. Certainly the colouring is more slap dash in some regards (only in the sense of some loose colour bleed here and there) but that really fits your style and the details always win out in your images to make the comment about ?slap dash? colouring mute. I like the overall look of the colouring though in all your images, it always seems to express a sense of motion or character. The effect overall is more like painting really the more I think about it. But I digress, what I think is really nice is the slight impression of a blur effect which smoothes everything out in a rather unique way that is altogether rather pleasing to the eye.

The main feature of this image that really catches the eye of the viewer, in my opinion, is her wonderful expression ? to me it isn?t one of boredom though, that has been said in a previous comment ? but one of disdain or flippant rebellion to authority. As in she seems to be more adolescent in her expression ? which I particularly love. Especially in the way you brought up her eyes just so, and the little well thistle in her mouth. The horns and frankly the shading overall in the image is very exceptional ? it creates such a strange but pleasing lighting effect all over. The way you did the rather overly pink nose and cheek and chin colouring is interesting. Overall even though this is one of our smaller pieces I think it has all the wonderful details that really mark all your pieces.

The little hair berets (boy I hope I?m saying that properly) are such a nice touch ? also creating this sense that she is a rebellious youth. I really like the way you curve the horns to frame the face ? the only issue I have though is the odd green colouring at the top of the upper left corner, though I believe this is showing that the hair is just ruffled around the base. Overall this is an exceptional piece and I do hope to see more Karasu! Keep up the wonderful work.

Prismatic @ Thursday, February 10th 2005, 9:58 AM
Oh~ This is so pretty. Your works always are. So nice and soft and watery. And thier noses are always pink! I love that.
The shading in this is so great. You even have single shadows for the single strands of hair. She's adorable.

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Saturday, February 12th 2005, 6:29 PM
I can so see this character wearing farmor overalls and leaning against a fence either around a feild or next to a farm house, tail swishing back and forth, and a Ko'd bull laying on the ground behind her. Don't ask me why that image popped in my head, but it did. ^^;

Ikena @ Sunday, February 13th 2005, 5:07 PM
woah cool! I really like the coloring and her expression!

KHatch @ Tuesday, February 15th 2005, 6:17 AM
Your quick crazy art never ceases to amaze me, you nutty Karasu.
I'm still in love with your style and flair for sketching such finalized works. =P

Starisan @ Tuesday, February 15th 2005, 2:16 PM
I really like the softnes that this exudes. Love the colors and I think that you used the borders very effectively. I like the way I can only see part of her horn because it seems to emphsize what you were saying about her wanting to be a normal girl. Kudo! I want hair like that!

manasa_dong @ Tuesday, August 1st 2006, 9:46 AM
I love the colors you've used.

Sorry, I just got so tired becase i started this and then had company over and when I came back to finish it I was like....wueh....=_= so now i go to bed! Promise i'll do one later with more effort!

Starisan @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 1:27 PM
Wow this is really pretty. I like the movement and soft colors. You used an interesting color on the highlight, I like it. She seems to have a very real expression!

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 1:31 PM
It's good to see yur work again. And don't feel bad. We all need to do some simple quick drawings once in a while. They can warm the hands and clear the mind.

She (?) reminds me of Himitsu from Wish3, an online comic I read. And mind, I see nothing wrong with that. In fact, I find it cool. Just goes to show great artists think alike. You can view the comic at http://www.wish3.net

Kaede @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 6:21 PM
Karasuuuuuu! This is awesome. I really REALLY love your style, I just havent ever seen anything close to it before. The eyes are so nice to look at, and the detail in the hair is awesome. I love the way you do your lineart, I dont know how you get it to look that way but you do and thats awesome. What I really like about this picture is the ears. I just want rub them, -squeeks- so very cute and adorable.

darkrose @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 10:32 PM
aww, but it's such a cute picture. It looks kinda unfinished with the yellow on her face and skin and stuff, but I still like it. Your eyes are always so real, just the right shape and amount of detail to look really cool.

AoD @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 3:46 AM
I wont those ears -Pinches them randomly.- I really like how you used the pink in the hair. The coloring on this is really nice. It's different from what i usually see and i mean that in a good way.

Sumi @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 5:00 AM
You used the bg colour to highlight things in the picture as part of your style in a lot of your pictures. It's something different to see and lovely all the same. I love your people because you style is between anime and realism. Beautiful hair and blue eyes.

Lady_Sea @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 9:57 PM
I really enjoy your art Karasu. It's absolutely beautiful. I love how you use the background color as your base coloring on from there on add the shading and highlighting as appropriate. Even your figures and faces are beautiful. Your line work is messy, but it's messy in a way that shows that it's your style and not rushed. Did I say that clearly? >.<. I like your mixture of colors too and the different tones. Lovely lovely work.

Carbuncle @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 10:44 PM
Ohh this is just too lovely!!!! I love you soft style it always looks soo kwel!! even though its all smearry it looks fantastic I eagerly await your next post!!!

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 11th 2005, 6:52 AM
Karasu, there you go again, making me envy your artwork. BAD KARASU!
The simple way you colour things really makes them so good. Realistic, animeish, slick.
I LOVE the nose.

Basil @ Friday, January 14th 2005, 4:13 AM
Curse you and your superior coloring skills.

catboi incubus mishi @ Saturday, January 15th 2005, 4:44 PM
Karasu Karasu Karasu. I love you and your art so much. <333333333 So so so so pretty. <333
