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.

lmfao Man, how long ago did I promise you I'd make a certain comment on this?

So...just how is he holding that cloth up...toward the front...? XD!!!

Now that I've gotten that bit out of the way, I love the gradation of color to that cloth. Though I'm curious why you left the shading on his body so sharp, but everything else is smooth...then again you may be taking my route...you know...forever to finish things. lol However, the lines are overall very smooth, with the exception of a bit in the wings. And you've got some kind of ocean kick going on don't you? lol You've used water for a background in few things now. Oh well...at least you MAKE backgrounds. lol

i love this, teh rays of light comig though teh dark clouds is a rewally clever effect!!

nice pic anyway!!!! =3

Karasu @ Friday, March 4th 2005, 5:00 PM
Ah, so. : )

I think that you did a good job here for lighting, and the sunset is beautiful, perhaps a little more color blending though? I like how you have it matching his hair and what not, I think thats what you were trying to do? But. Ifn ot, what a neat coincidence!

Dont really have muich else to say....except.. I thnk a litttttttttttle highlighting on the top of the wave there would do just the perfect fnishing touch for ths piture. : )

Ikena @ Saturday, March 5th 2005, 12:53 PM
Ah is very pretty indeed, I wish I could see his face.. =3 this seing the back of his head makes you imagine what kind of expression he has =3
The sea looks beautiful and the wave is greatly done!
The only suggestion I would make is that, if he is a drow then he has pointy ears no? I think they should be showing poking out of his hair.. =3, anyway other than that I really like this pic, so calm and nice, ah and i just noticed the pretty clouds and the nice effect of the sun! =3

I don't think sunsets and sunrises are all that hard to do, actually. I like doing them myself. You did a really good job with this one. Very nice stormheads and good job with the light rays. I especially adore your clouds. I dunno. I just like how everything works together. o_o

Yay you're finsihed! The kitty is cuuuute! ^_^ The little horn is a nice touch. Cat's make such cute "snowmen" lol. The snow looks all nice and fluffy, and the cat's stripes are very well done. I think the BG could use a little more detail to match with the cat, but that's okay. Nice.

darkrose @ Sunday, February 27th 2005, 5:55 PM
Your cat made a snowman...? Thats cute... And I like how fuzzy you made it look. You also made it look so proud, very pleased with itself and eager for you to be pleased with it too. Are those trees in the background, or columns? They're spaced just right to look like columns. Or maybe I've got the perspective off and they're the back of the porch? I'm not sure what could be done to clarify those things, maybe more detail (bark on trees, fluting on columns, grain on wood porch). That'll also set a perspective on the size of the unikitty. Still, I really like this piece, is unbearably cute <{^ ^}>

The soft pretty colors in the background are nice.~

I love the strange way you color eyes, it gives them a more intense look. May I suggest shading fluff with a bigger, softer watercolor brush? it'll look less scribbly and more fluffy this way.

Wow, he is really pretty.
I love the subtle change of tone in his skin. And the little shiney on his lip~ His eyes in particular are really well done. The dark lines about them really make them stand out.
The colors in the sky are beautiful. It really seems to be a bright afternoon or some such. Makes joining him even more appealing~

catboi incubus mishi @ Friday, February 4th 2005, 2:28 PM
I really really like his hair, it's so pretty and the blue is just lovely. <3 I think you could have shaded the white with some light grey, but that's just me. Oh wait, no, it's a bandana, right? Then you should have done some distinction between the two - perhaps make the bandana a light grey, because afterall, white doesn't stay pure on the sea for too long. x3; I think you could have blended the colors in his skin a little more, they look a bit blotchy right now. My absolute favorite part of this are his eyes, they're so piercing and a pretty color of olive. <3

olsie @ Friday, February 4th 2005, 10:13 PM
Cute; The only thing that i would personally change is his lips...lol they look too girly xD

He's cute. I like how you did his hair. I'm glad you added more detail to the white part of his hair, in the back. I think that's a bandana, but hell if I know, really. I just know I like the blue in his hair. It's cute. Nice shading on his flesh as well.

Karasu @ Tuesday, February 8th 2005, 12:45 AM
I feel that if I stare into his eyes it will start to vortex on me...*phew* The only thing that really sort of bugs me here is that the lighting or the contrast seems kinda weird. I can't really put my finger on it well enough to describe to you...foo. otherwise, interesting choice for hair! and i love how you used the tones : )

Wow, the colors are rather bright. *__*; I just love her eyes and skintone, but her hair seems very sloppy, I don't much like the jumble of black on the right. Also, did you forget to shade her collar? It's so cute, by the way, with its little acorn. ^^

darkrose @ Friday, January 28th 2005, 8:21 PM

Ooh! Shiney picture! I *love* the eyes. I want to steal them, and then I'd claim that I'd drawn them, and be egotistical. This is a really nice piece, in other words. Uhm, but there's a kinda lack of shading in her collar - was that intentional or did you forget? Also, there's some colour bleeding...it'd be nice if it was cleaned up a bit, because this is a really nice picture and it just detracts a bit. But the eyes, the eyes!

Queen_Godzilla @ Friday, March 4th 2005, 11:49 PM
Acorn, eh? I like her name.

The first thing I noticed, and the thing that made me want to comment, was her coloration. We don't get a lot of green-skinned, blue-haired girls around here. This is what really set her off from the rest of the pictures.

The second thing that made me want to comment was her face. Her wide, googly eyes and her pouty lips -- oh yes. Very good. There aren't any eyebrows that I can see, but I don't care. XD Her expression is one that kind of looks vacantly shocked. Like she's seeing something that looks weird and she doesn't know what it is.

The only thing I'd watch out is how ears connect to the head. The bottom of the ear is level with the bottom of the nose, and the top of the ear is level with the eyebrow. It doesn't really work on anime that well (I can attest to that) but... yeah. XD; Her ear is just kind of strangely connect to her head, like it's sticking out of her cheek -- all you'd need to do is add a line from her jaw to her ear ridge there. Or something like it. I dunno XD;

AND on the second one it shows the shared characteristics of father to both sons. Quite interesting. As far as i can remember the eyebrows are shared between IY / father and in Full demon mode IY has the same strips on his face. Well. you can read the rest i'm sure. really cool..

Ive only seen the second Inuyasha movie, and I need to see the first then the third.
Yay for the Daddy. He looks awesome, even though.. this is just his back. Really great job on the coloring and the moon .=D

catboi incubus mishi @ Saturday, January 15th 2005, 3:45 PM
Ever since Inu Yasha became popular in the US, I stopped following it. xD; This is a nice image, although the positioning of the white cloak .. thing.. bothers me, because it make his shoulders to look different sizes. But I like the pinky-red moon, it would have been neat if you had a slightly pink glow on him. O:

This is a gift to harle. For no reason other then this somehow reminds me of her. Could be the grin. Or the odd odd hair. ....i think its the hair.


And his name shall be ....TILLEN! hmm...Tillen has a nice sound to it.
Is this a boy or a girl? dont know.

celestial crou @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 10:38 AM
DONE! now its a dude. I think i will have him have some form of a relationship with Dante. Course if you just look at the head it looks better fem then mas. SO perhaps a sex change is in order. LOL. Should 'he' be a guy or girl? oh aand the BG is of a desert. I couldnt really show it. but i did my best. SO they (Dante=water, ???= fire) live within their elements.

Starisan @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 3:32 PM
Yeah! I love your colors so much, I know I just said that in my previous comment but this is so pretty! I love the eyes, they are very intense and the hat/turban is great too. I also like the wispy way that you did the highlights. Have you seen anyone from class lately?

oni shi @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:45 PM
i love the colors aswell, and the lighs and daeks of this imagethey are suttle but still there, i aslo really like the eyes :)

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 7:20 PM
This is really cute! I love the spunky hair. What colours in the eyes, too!

Keep drawing, Crou!

Edit: Oh... and I thought he was a girl, because of the face, mostly. Only the chest makes me believe (barely) that he's a guy. Ahh... so these are elemental drow... I should have paid more attention. I hope you complete the set with Earth and Air as well! ^^

BOY BOY BOY! This is such a boy! *drrools* You draw these (drow?) people so well, I really love the black skin. Heee His eyes are gorgeous too! Man, this is too good! *dies*

darkrose @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 9:14 PM
I think it's definitely a boy, just because I say so. <{^.-}> Anyway, so yah... I love this thing you've been doing recently with the nifty feathery shading goodness. I really REALLY like this style, it seems somehow different from what you did before, but I love it. And the expression is so cute, with the silly grin and the wide, bright eyes. He looks very eager. Great job!

olsie @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 11:59 PM
This character reminds me more of a girl then a boy for some reason... So I'm gonna have to go with girl about the gender thing. It's like a drow "Ed" from Cowboy Bebop.
Adorable eyes; as usual <3

That's one wicked way to do the hair. Looks awesome. Love how the eyes look, the color tones of them are really cool. Very neat coloring. :D

Kaede @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 6:30 PM
First off before I forget to say it, I love the way you draw eyes. They are always so nice to look at and like, the first thing I look at.
Secondly, his hair rocks. I love the way it is colored.
Thirdly, I love his expression, it is just so garsh darn adorable. =3

Lady_Sea @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 10:09 PM
I must say those eyes are absolutely ALLURING. So captivating. I can't stop looking at them. I really like the inner blue and outter green. It gives it a sort of deepness, yet bright and young feel. For some reason, this character reminds me of Relm from FFVI. It must be the hair style and headdress. Another thing I like about this picture is the painty look of the skin. Awesome work ^_^. *two thumbs up*

Donno how this will turn out. If you watch the animation i did an armor version of him and then stopped. Realizing that he was in water and ...well...heavy metal objects and water dont mix. Well at least for the one who wears them. So.....donno. I think i shall have him be another one of my characters. well a fan pic character. Cause he's a drow. I thnk ill name him Dante.

ANY WAY. this is a very belated gift to all the admin. people who got the Drowtales oekaki up after that worm. Thanks!

darkrose @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 10:37 PM
sweet! Rock on with shading. You go. Beautiful lineart, and the hair and the background are wonderful, and the shading on his torso and the way you actually made his shirt look like it's soaking up water. Totally excellent. One other thing that wet clothing does is cling, a lot, making large tight wrinkes to itself and the skin and there's color bleeding (depending on the texture and weight of the fabric). Just something to keep in mind for next time <{^.^}>. That tree in the background rocks my world, though.

KHatch @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 4:19 AM
The face is so well done. I like how you have the shape of the head under the hair accutarely done, some people, including myself, have a hard time making sure there's enough head under the hair, or in my case a lot, there's too much head. o.O
The hair is pretty, and the tree in the BG is cute. I like it a lot. YAY!

Loki @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:27 AM
This is definately my favorite of yours! He looks so wonderful in the water like that, and the shading on his skin and shirt is beautiful. The hair is definately the greatest thing out of the whole pic to me, its so nice and different for a change, The go so well with his eyes and his hair and eyes together really give him a pretty and aquatic look, Well done CC! (can I call you that?) <3

Starisan @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 3:30 PM
Wow, this is gorgeous, I Love the smoothness of the lines. The subdued color choice for the background makes thegreaat colors in the front stand out really well. Your so talented!

oni shi @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:57 PM
i like ur style hehe *dies over wet bishi* hehe i like how all the colors ion this are related (blue and yell makes green) i find that to be very pleasing to my eyes i also like how is close are darker due to wetness

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 7:13 PM
I really like this! His hair is cool, and ... I just get the feeling of "I'm a mermaid" from him... it's playing about in his mysterious eyes.

I just love how everybody's art styles differ, yet are all amazing in their own way here at Drowkaki. It's something that I love about this board!

Great picture!

Crest @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 5:58 AM
The hair and eyes are so wonderfully done. Definitely love how you do the hair where the tips fade into the white...or the white fades into the blue. XD And the face is so nicely drawn. Very neat. :D

Kaede @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 6:43 PM
=0.......-Benjiman The Spork:.......-
Wow. Me and Benji love this!
This is like, wow. =0
Ok first of all, I love his hair. It is sooo smexy, and nice dun, and the blue tip is lovely. I secondly love his gold eyes. I mean I know Ive said I love the way you draw eyes, but I love the face his eyes are gold more. I love gold eyes they are always so... beautiful. Theres no other word for them. Thirdly, I love his lips, you REALLY did a nice job on the lips, and then the detail to the chest is just grand! I really love his chest.
Now moving on to the shirt. I like how you darkened the coloring to show that his shirt is wet. That is some good detail, that..... >.>; I would of easily forgotten which perhaps is probably why I think it is so amazing. xD Or maybe im just easily amazed hm?...-_- Oh shut up benjiman.
Ok anyway ^^ Aheeem Yes, I must say this is probably my favorite drawing out of all your work. Other than that one picture of yourself. That one was smoking.

Tigerhawk @ Sunday, January 9th 2005, 2:33 AM
The coloring is the best and the tones, mainly on the skin.

Kage Kitsune @ Sunday, January 9th 2005, 10:10 PM
I really like this picture Crou!! I love his hair and his shirt. The eyes are spectacular! shading is also great but the white background doesn't seem to fit to me ::shrugs::

Queen_Godzilla @ Sunday, February 6th 2005, 3:44 AM
Dante! Wonderful name for your pirate drow.

I love the anatomy on this. I dunno. His face is very delicate and elf-like, very cutesy, very ... bishounen-y. And he's staring off into space! :D

The background is barren, but in a good way. It's subtle. I love how he's half-submerged in it.

just wanted to say hi and thanks for suggesting this site to me, I'm so excited to try it out when I have time!

Pitdragon @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 9:07 PM
Like where this is going. I am determined to have a more "realistic" art style, and this looks similar to some of my stepping-stone pics for that, where I too have used some FF CG to help. (yah, I know my Oekaki work looks like I'm in 6th grade all over again ^_^; ). It looks like you're gonna have some nifty cloud/fog/steam to the left there. I wanna see how that turns out too!

BreeWinde @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 7:41 PM
His eyes look wonderful, hun. I would suggest blurring the nose a little, or something though, because you have so many smooth lines, and then the nose is so sharp, it throws a lot of the picture off. Other then that, great job. <3

Oh neat; I had no Idea it would morph into him :) I can wait to see how you draw in the mouth for him; it aughta be pretty indeed o-o

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 5:20 PM
This looks really good. The soft colouring suits him (especially with this pose). I don't know what Advent Children pic you used for this, as it doen't look familiar to me. Very nicely done! ^^

Darkrose @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 10:29 PM
Woah! It completely changed! That's kind of a trip... still love the shading on the nose, though. His eyes could be a bit darker (the whites are never really white, you know) if you're going for a purely realistic look, but I really like this. Kinda thew me that the whole thing up and changed, though... heheh.

Kamourian King @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 12:04 PM

ChronosKit @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 5:38 AM
Wow! I watched the animation of this, and found it fascinating how you switched the picture! Kudos!~ The little crescent on his forehead could be a tad bit bigger though,a nd I love his eyes, although I agree that if you are going for a realism effect that you should darken the whites of the eyes a bit. Also, his ear looks like it could take a tad bit more shading. I love his cheek markings, and the pouty looking bottom lip!

celestial crou @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 7:22 AM
Starisan- *HUGS* HELLO!!!!! i was getting worried that i would never hear from you again. YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! your here now!

Yes comment away. I hate how this turned out. but i would love to hear improvement suggestions. Its not my "drawing style". (XD i have a drawing style now! Recently devoloped you see) But you cant say you suck at something if you only did it a few times. wait until you did something 100 times before you say you suck at it. then practive until 1000. If no improvement. then you really do suck at it and you should probibly quit wasting your time....LOL

Starisan @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 5:05 PM
yipee! well I watched the animation and I did like the start that you had on the original (sorry I know you'v heard that a few times), but I like this one too. The expression is great, pouty lip and all. He looks annoyed as he usually would be but it also seems like he's trying to be serious when he really wants to laugh. I magine him LOLing....You really captured his likeness well. The pelt is especially good and I see some really good highlights (smiles). The eyes are very effective too (they look round) but I would have to agree that the whites might be a little darker. I can't believe you only been using the mouse for a little while, your soo good. Good job!

Harlequin @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:35 AM
lol Well Crou, had this been with actual tangible paint...I'm sure you would have been MUCH happier with it. I won't bother critiquing this...since...lol You already know exactly what I'd point out and all that, and I'm sure it's the same stuff that you're not happy with. But...I will say this, you're brave to attempt even moderate realism with an oekaki applet...lol Then again...I'm am "realistically challenged" when it comes to people. lol

Um...let me explain this pic a little. The blue eyed puppy is a Harlequin Great Dane. And we are in one of Drowtales Great Banquent halls. Harle is the one whose blindfolded and being directed to the door by Windy (hope you dont mind being added) in the BG. You can see them through the windows. Crou (me) is holding the present she will give to harle (which is the puppy).

Manical grin much? Not that it's a bad thing, of course. That Dane looks just wonderful, the details on the muzzle is really awesome. It's so cute, too, especially it's expression---it looks like something off-image has captured it's attention! The girl (Harlequin, I assume?) has a neat hat, and I like the way her hair falls. That background is rather intriguing, I want to see how it's coloured and shaded. :D

Harlequin @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 6:40 AM
I'll only say this once:

OH MY GOD I WANT A HARLEQUIN GREAT DANE SO MUCH!

Gah, I've wanted one since I was a wee ickle Harle. But the parent types don't like the big dog beasts...so I have to wait until I'm out of the house to get my BIG puppy.

So...I'll comment more on the actual image when this is done. lol

Yeah! it's Celstial Crou! This a cool one too, I like the video camera REC and the space created by the falling banner. The puppy is very cute and well drawn, I wish I could draw animals as well as you. Your eyes are always very dramatic. I like that in the animation. I think the head space in the hat is just a little bit off but otherwise I'm glad it's there (my fav hat to see you in):) A gorgeous suset in the background too. Quite lovely.

OH how my beloved game series came to the GBA and how i wish i bought it.... For christmas came and went and there was no Breath of fire in my stocking....for ALL game stores were sold out.... *sigh* LET THE HUNT BEGIN! I shall have you my Ryu!

So .....how did your christmas go? Get everything you wanted?

AnimeCanuck @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 3:14 AM
I've never played Breath of Fire... I also didn't get everything I wanted. I meant to go out to get Burnout 3: Takedown for the PS2 with some Christmas money, but it's also sold out everywhere (and more than I thought. I didn't realize it was a new release) so I hope I can still find it used at the rental store for $40.

He has a nice happy expression. Those are really dark, thick lines for his eyes. Also, is that a scar or a tattoo on his forehead. Are you going to colour this?

Rigga Mortis @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 3:56 AM
Your style is really defined, Crou. :D My only nit-pick is that the size of the eyes distorts the shape of the face/head on the left (our right, his left) side. Otherwise, that is a really cute nose, and I like the shape of the mouth and teeth. I really want to see this all coloured.

Skittles-chan @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 4:03 AM
The eyes are pretty cool, but it seems a little awkward on the left, like it comes out too much. I could tell almost instantly who it was though =3 I've played all of the BoF games except this most recent one. The first few are great.

Oooh! Izzat Ryu from Breath of fire 2? ^w^ Very god job on the sunset background! I love the colors you used in it! And you also did nicely with the solids.
But maybe you shouldn't have made his eyes so big. ^w^; It seems like it deforms his face a bit. *prepares to receive any pointy object thrown in my direction*

celestial crou @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 11:27 AM
-Ghislain WildCat You know....if you really want to torture someone you dont use pointy objects....you use blunt or dull objects and salt. Perhaps lemon or ham juice.... LOL...

NO really. NOw that you mention it his face does seem a bit akward. But because my drawing style literly revolves around the eyes i think it was the face itself that is perhaps too small? Donno...this is not a question one should ponder at 6:30 in the morning.

*Throws cookies at Ghislain WildCat. * Thankyou for the advise!

Totenmaske @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 7:52 PM
I was withholding on commenting on this image last night crou, simply because I didn?t know if you were truly finished with the image ? yeah I know rather silly of me ? but I personally liked the way it was coming out so I didn?t feel it would be ?just? if I made a full comment on an unfinished piece. What is interesting, only to me I suppose ? because I used to be a fan of the Breath of Fire series (was, mainly because after awhile of the same characters being reintroduced in each new game, a few new characters, but the same main who never seemed to develop over the series ? I began to feel cheated) is the fact that I didn?t know they put a cross type scar on his forehead, but apparently they thought that was an interesting thing to put into the GBA version. Which tempts me to go out and purchase it, if I can find it.

Other than that, I must agree you did an exceptional job overall ? even though the face has been said by a few to be a little off mainly because of the result of the eyes, I personally think this is one of the more recent images of yours that I personally like a lot. The background, particularly the sunset with the sense of dark foreboding clouds really is crafted rather nicely and the colours are very well blended to give a wonderful effect. The sea itself is adequate but really nicely carried by the slight reflection of the clouds and lighting.

I personally like the fact that you depended upon thin line work in this image for the two focal points in the canvas (the dragon form of Ryu and Ryu himself). I think the overall colouring and line art in Ryu is more polished though, mainly because I see a little colour bleeding in the dragon?s eyebrow as well as the yellow highlights seem a little to vibrant, generally it would be really nice to see some sense of texture ? though personally I think you were going for that fine cel-shading look overall. I do like the dragon; don?t get me wrong, I just feel that it isn?t as polished as Ryu.

Now I know you have heard a few negatives about Ryu?s face and the setup of his eyes, well the overly large sense of the eyes and the odd sense of spacing on the face. But to be truthful, the overall effect isn?t as overpowering as it has been made out to be. I personally like the overall look of him ? even the little detail of the cross scar that Capcom has recently introduced on his forehead. The skin and the clothing are fantastically coloured in my opinion ? the eyes are a little odd only in the sense of colouring approach compared to the rest of the character. The line art is fantastic, and the overall look of the eyes remind me somewhat of how Harlequin crafts them, which is a compliment btw. The colouring itself is very nice overall though in Ryu and that is what seems to make the image ? the fact that you put a lot of work in getting a sense of shading on the face and clothing brings everything to life. I particularly like the way you rendered the lower lip cress, but it is carried on in the slight colouring ? as if it fades away realistically from the line art point into colour. But that?s just me. Overall fantastic image crou, and I do hope you get a chance to own Breath of Fire.

KHatch @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 8:19 PM
I like the semisolid shading, and I LOVE the background. The lineart is pretty and the anime type face is well done. Yeah, the eyes are a little buggy but the way you made them is good, so I'm gonna ignore that.
Nice. =)

Skittles-chan @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 9:26 AM
This looks really great now that it's finished ^^ I really, really love the water in the background; it's a little more realistic than bright blue or green. The sky looks very cool too, especially how the light is sort of seeping into the dark, like there's some kind of fire-storm type thing going on. The one thing that bothers me is how Ryu's hair is shaded solid, and nearly everything else in the image is watercoloured (which has enough various colours that I didn't even notice until just now.) But really overall, this looks fantastic ^^

ahh they eyes i simply love them, there is nothing that i can point out that hasnt been pointed out already i love the solidness of the forground and the softness of the background

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 5:04 PM
Oooh it's done! *GASP!!!* I LOOOOVE the background!

So pretty, Crou!!! ^^

Kamourian King @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:58 AM
woah, i love the dragon and BG, but the human .... well the eyes are too big, making the head look acward...

This is the Secret Santa gift for..... KHatch!!!!!!!!!!! Who requested Lai'Rena. Now i tried really hard but i dont think i captured her very well. Hope you like it! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

KHatch @ Saturday, December 25th 2004, 6:34 AM
No way! She's perfect! I really like her big gooey eyes! You got her hairstyle all perfect and stuff.
=D
Thanks, it's great! *giant hug of doom*
*falls in love with her little ears*

Skittles-chan @ Saturday, December 25th 2004, 6:41 AM
This is really very pretty ^^ Her eyes are lovely, and I like how the wings look. The shading on her skin is pretty good, too. The only things that bother me are the colour bleeding, and the lack of detail in the base of the globe. Otherwise, it's pretty, and very christmasy ^^

Rigga Mortis @ Saturday, December 25th 2004, 6:40 PM
Crou, you made the orb shiiiiny! KHatch's character looks really cute and happy, the lower lip is adorable and I, too, love the big goopy eyes. X3 The hair is pretty, as are those wings. :D

Darkrose @ Saturday, December 25th 2004, 6:58 PM
It's lovely! I really like the shaggy wings, yepyep. I always love your eyes, too Her ears seem a little bit too low, but other than that this is a fantastic picture. Merry Christmas!

Rasen @ Saturday, December 25th 2004, 7:59 PM
Oh, pretty! The glow of light off the globe is lovely and really gives it a glassy look. I especially like her eyes and her wings, and the simple background makes the globe stand out. I like the way you depicted the snow settling on her shoulders too. ^_^

Jennifer @ Sunday, December 26th 2004, 12:58 PM
This is so cute, pretty and original. I like the idea of putting someone's character into a snow globe. It's very pretty. The globe and character themselves seem magical. She looks like she might blink or flap her wings. Beautiful job.

TigerHawk @ Monday, December 27th 2004, 1:26 AM
Her eyes are gorgous!

Sumi @ Monday, December 27th 2004, 5:02 PM
This is so cool! The snowglobe idea is genius. XD Yes, the bleeding colour on the snowglobe base is a little distracting but it's not that bad. Nice job.

AnimeCanuck @ Monday, December 27th 2004, 8:25 PM
She's got a very cute and innocent look to her. I hope she's actually happy to be put in a snowglobe like that, and not just under some sort of creepy spell. The green eyes are really intense! ^^

Ikena @ Monday, December 27th 2004, 10:33 PM
ah lovely! the eeeeyes! =3
lovely concept! =3

Carbuncle @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 3:31 AM
aww... I love this the drow is uber cute!!! I likr the wings and the hat and the face and the eyes...you get meh point?

kyokurrychan @ Sunday, January 30th 2005, 6:49 AM

Well. I think we ALL know what this is, who its to and why!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or do you? Well this ones dedicated to Windy. HAPPY B DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Darkrose @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 1:48 AM
Well so far I'd say Windy, Crow, and someone else. Who knows. Looking good so far, finish soon!

Rasen @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 2:34 AM
The lineart looks great, the eyes especially. Can't wait to see it finished. ^_^

Rigga Mortis @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 3:08 AM
Oooh. Very nice line-art, so far, indeed. The eyes are looking quite stark, but this is extremely incomplete. I like the expressions, especially the grin on the one to the left. :D Finish soon!

LunarMnM2004 @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 3:32 AM
I love the eyes!

celestial crou @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 4:24 AM
alright. For the most part this pic is done. But the eyes ....i cant seem to color in the eyes. Its driving me nuts!!!!!!!! I redid it over and over. Just watch the animation.....grrr....

HuntressD @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 5:08 AM
Hum.. >_> that one with the red eyes is looking at her funny.. Does he have some sort of idea in mind??? >_> or is he trying to get a peep down her clothes? :o KEkeke! Nice pic in the snow, Crou. I really like it. :D

windblade @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 5:10 AM
Yay! Another birthday pic, and it's SNOWING! Wish it was snowing now... but noooo. it RAINED. *curses at the weather*

I like how we look like we're taking a picture... and the girl on top looks like she's going to STEAL MY SOUL!!! (Ha, sucks to be her, I sold it for 2$) That's Harle, right? >>

AnimeCanuck @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 7:01 AM
I like the snow! ^^ Cute pic. The colouring of Windy's lip is nicely done. And the expression on the red-eyed guy's face just rocks. Hehe. And he has nice eyes, too. Did you forget to finish the other eyes, or was that white blank-ness intentional?

Harlequin @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 7:31 AM
lmfao Yeah, that mystery girl with the purple hair would be me. Though it's more of a red now...lol I dye my hair too much. XD!!

Crou...EYES DAMMIT EYES!! lol

catboi incubus mishi @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 4:21 PM
Wow, this look wonderful so far, Crou! Definately one of my favorites. (: I love the way you did the eyes and the expressions. Super cute, I know Windy will love it. :]

Rigga Mortis @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 7:09 PM
Oooh, Crou, this is turning out well! :D The skin shading is lovely, and I still love that crazy grin! XD Windy looks so adorable, but they need eyes for certain! I really like how it all fits together. The snow does look a little messy here and there, though.

Lady_Sea @ Saturday, December 25th 2004, 12:03 AM
Wow! I like how you captured the ' taking a photo' gesture and emotion! You can really feel it in this oekaki. The expressions on the characters are cute and very photo-y. I also like the addition of snow, it helps recognize the season of the year in which Windblade's b-day is in.

TigerHawk @ Monday, December 27th 2004, 1:54 AM
you did a great job on the eyes and the faces.

Ikena @ Monday, December 27th 2004, 10:14 PM
cute pic! I like the eyes a lot!! =3

Darkrose @ Monday, December 27th 2004, 11:58 PM
Whee! They have eyes! Is that a jello cake? mmm...

Sephie Strife @ Tuesday, December 28th 2004, 4:29 AM
SNOW!!! Awesomeness. XD I love snow!

I really really like the way you draw your character's eyes. >>
It looks like maybe you could spend a bit more time on your lineart though. But it already looks really neat!
My fave character on that pic is the one with the blue eyes. X3 Sooo awesome!

kyokurrychan @ Sunday, January 30th 2005, 6:42 AM
awww, uber cute <3 great work

celestial crou @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 3:42 AM
Yea!!!!!!!! i can draw again! This is the crou who is trying to save her poor pictures. But being attacked by the worm. for it has spread.

I usually dont do profile pics. And this one seems akward.

catboi incubus mishi @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 3:53 AM
I think her profile seems odd because her eye - although it's drawn really well - is awfully far back, and I think her forehead curves out a bit too much. Other than that, this looks really good, although the worms freak me out. D:

Loki @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 4:35 AM
Ooo wow! I love your profiles, your so amazing at them! I simply love her pose and the soft shading of her skin, you must finish this quickly! ^x^!

Totenmaske @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 4:42 AM
I think this profile comes across awkward only because the hand suggest her arm is bending rather too early, if you brought the arm down and her hand closer to her body I think it would come across a lot better.

Personally I think your images have been improving greatly of late, and with the recent worm hit, I felt troubled about not getting to any of your other works. But so far - other than the arm positioning, I think this image is coming along fine. Those worms are rather creepy - something that I keep expecting Harlequin to do frankly... something grotesque and frightening... but I don't think that is in her at the moment ;3. Keep up the good work, I will comment more fully once this is finished.

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 4:43 AM
Wow, excellent detail in the eye! Her forehead seems a little large, but other than that this is really excellent. I adore her hat, that's fantastic. Also the worms... hehee.

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 5:58 AM
Woah! Background! Wah! Looks like something from Dune... excellent! And the sun, and the shadows, just niftiness! Heheheh....

celestial crou @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 6:24 AM
I brought the hand down as was suggested. And that really did help.

I didnt redo the forehead or other hand 'cause the crou is lazy in redoing things. Thankyou for the suggestions. The next profile shall surly incorperate those suggestions that i couldnt/ didnt do in this one!

Hehehe...*points* This BG makes up for my past not so good ones!

Rigga Mortis @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 7:25 AM
Those are some creeeeepy worms, yes indeed...that eye is gorgeous. I love all the different shades and levels of blue inside it. The way the hair flows forward is quite pretty, and I think her nose is really cute. *Pokes.* That ear is nice, too.

LunarMnM2004 @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 7:55 AM
More worms!... ebil ones...
I like the sun in the back and the evil worms... with big teeth..<runs away>

HuntressD @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 8:00 AM
save it Crou, saaaaaaaaave iiiiiiit! ;-; that poor picture! You need a weapon to save yourself from those worms! Where's the stabbing pencil of justice? :x ^_^ I particularly love that eye, Crow..they're always so pretty. :x

Jennifer @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 1:40 PM
This is very cool. I really like the worms. They look so menacing and creepy. Your heroine has her work cut out for her.

YourNuubGod @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 8:13 PM
Rofl, that's so awsome. The hairiness is a really nice add on. It'd be kinda gross if you didn't have the 'crou' there , which lets me concentrate on it instead. :)

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 9:01 PM
Hehe! I like it. Eevil worms in the background. Great fangorious beasts.

Ikena @ Thursday, December 23rd 2004, 9:47 PM
oh very nice!
I reallylike the profile and the eye! =3
the worms are scarY!

Lady_Sea @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 6:06 PM
I really love her ocean blue eyes! Seriously that is my favorite color of blue ^_^. The worm has an interesting design. It's very long and scarey, which of course adds to the emotion of the picture. She better run faster or it will get her! *steals her hat XD* I won't give any crit. because everything already been stated.
Good job!

Rasen @ Friday, December 24th 2004, 9:20 PM
Wow, the worms are something here. Very well done, if scary.^^; Yeah, I think your forehead is too far forward, otherwise it'd be great.

I like the desert atmosphere and the slight tenseness of the girl, as well as the way some of the strands of her hair ar blowing in the wind. ^_^

Basil @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 9:13 PM
I actually really like the profile...! At first I thought she was holding a charm card, but now I see that it's a picture! X3 I love the hairy worms. They looks so gross, which I would say is a pretty accurate description of the evil worm that ate Drowkaki! Nicely done! Bravo!

kyokurrychan @ Sunday, January 30th 2005, 6:38 AM
AAAAAAAAAH! THIS PIC GIVE ME NIGHTMARES! AAAAAAAAAAH

Prismatic @ Friday, February 4th 2005, 4:37 AM
I don't think the profile in this picture is really awkward at all. I'm really liking it actually.
You put sooo much detail into this picture. I love it. Down to the stuffles on the worms and their huge scarey mouths and teeth.
I love their eye the most. So much color and depth, it's really really great.
I feel bad with the not being able to save pictures.. but just think of all the new ones we get to do now~
