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.

I blame Ikena for this, hee. That, and paintbbs is better for spriting than any other program I have.

Great; really nice.

Ok,your drawing is very clear,accurate;the line drawing is effective,and clean;and your painting job is good on coloring,and not messy.You did a very good job,and it looks great. Good perspective of the creature,and obviously you know how to draw a dragon;I have trouble with them.So,your anatomy of it is good.

It's nice to see your art Windblade. :3 Great black and white picture with a hint of color. Just having the eyes colored makes it easier to see the characters, and it almost forces you to take a closer look at the picture. Love the characters and those wings!

Though I'm not a fan of the series, this thing really caught my eye in a good way. The subject's in clear focus, with an interesting almost crowny..uh.. majigger, for lack of a scientific word in mind to call an octopus' forehead. The silhouettes of the others behind it was done great as well.

Nice use of colour especially on the butterfly on the right. *nods nods*

windblade @ Saturday, April 8th 2006, 6:47 PM
My only problem is that I have no idea what background I should use (would prefer something that doesn't distract from all the sparkles)

Mouse @ Saturday, April 8th 2006, 7:32 PM
The smooth transition, the coloring... this is good. I keep on trying to trace all the butterflies individually with my eyes. You'd be good with those "find those random objects in the picture" puzzles.

Arisu @ Saturday, April 8th 2006, 9:44 PM
Oh my. Really nice concept here! I like the way you paid attention to ALL the little details even though your canvas is so big. That's something I will never be able to do. *admiration for your skill and patience* I love the way the butterflies shine.

olsie @ Monday, April 10th 2006, 6:31 AM
Wow, thats great Windy.
I Think Greens, or Yellows would make a good background...even if it did take eons, opposite color butterflies in the background would be fitting, IMO.

Traditions_Chains @ Monday, April 10th 2006, 2:46 PM
dear sweet holy monkies of doom... This is beyond beautiful! How did you make it look so.. glittery? So soft and well blended.. Its wonderful! Oh the BG on DA is pretty nifty too ^.~

Suggestion for a theme week: Non-humanoid aliens!

This lil guy here (who\'s about ten feet tall) is a Cursean (The old name of Curriaan came from someone who seemed to like them, but I was asked to change it), a psychic insectoid inhabitant of the planet Xales 3, from the ixalee system. Extremely intelligent, these creatures are also tougher than they look, and they need to be! Xales 3 has a lot of seismic and volcanic activity, and also gets pelted by the occasionnal meteor shower a few times a year. Oh, and it rains chlorhydric acid, too.

The yellow dots on his back are bioluminescent, and are mainly used to convey emotions. He is rather young, as can be told by the paler color of his exoskeletton. Older individuals are darker shades of blue, purple and teal. Females can be told appart from male by the size of the abdomen. Females with big \"butts\" are the most sought after, because this means they are more fertile.

[589] Artist: windblade | Title: sanyi | Time: 278 min


[View Animation]
windblade @ Sunday, February 12th 2006, 12:54 AM
The sanyi are a race of cool-blooded, purple-skinned aliens which prides themselves in their cloning technology and powerful, well-disciplined conquering fleet. They truly believe in gender equality, and in fact, don't understand why males and females should be considered different in ANY aspect, appart from the obvious physical ones. Maybe as a result from their cloning computers, there's no such thing as homo- or heterosexuality in their society. Females still give birth, but all children, natural or cloned, are raised by caretakers (their reasonning being that these people are much more qualified for taking care of children than just any random girl who forgot to use contraceptives).

As with all races, the sanyi have their flaws. They are completely dependant on their technology. Every sanyi has implants, and every sanyi who has gained more than one rank in any job has a powerful personnal computer to assist him in his tasks.

The sanyi are ruled by a group of special individuals called the Conclave. There are three known circles in this organisation (lower conclave, middle conclave and high conclave), but it is rumored that some secret circles exist. The individuals forming this strange, mysterious government are, it is said, specially bred and trained for this purpose.

Personality disorders are rare in the sanyi society, and anything unusual is treated with mood-altering drugs as soon as discovered. Despite this, once in a while comes a very disturbed individual. The last one was a young soldier by the name of Jadiel who was affected by Malika syndrome, a rare and under-studied disorder. He rose to the rank of general before something in him broke and he brought nearly half of his nation in a revolution against the Conclave. Fortunately, his attempt was stopped and the general was sent in a cryogenic prison for a hundred years. Since he still had a great influence on the people at the time of his capture, this was thought to be better than execution or exile. He would not be turned into a martyr, and he would not be able to build up a new army to come back later. All of Jadiel's clones were destroyed, since it was possible that they would be subject to the same illness.

This lady here has the rank of Wing in the army. The colors and design of her armour inform others about her squad (redbrass-114), the shoulders and the patches on her waist indicate her rank (Wing is two ranks higher than sergeant) and the bands and dots on her thigh indicate her marital status (passively looking for companion). The strange "wings" on her helmet hold her delicate, sensitive "ear-frills", which, appart from their hearing function, act a bit like a cat's whiskers. Despite her juvenile appearance, she is a mature female who would be in her late twenties, had she been human.

And I think I wrote too much.

Sumi @ Sunday, February 12th 2006, 1:59 AM
It's the windy! <3 I never get tired of seeing your style pop up.
The society reminds me of the book The Giver with the "mood-altering drugs" and such. Very out of the box - I like it. =3
I love the light reflection on her helmet, and the impossible happened. I to believe your shading has gotten even more delicious, especially the bigger components around her lower leg.... I wonder what she's thinking. She's so accomplished, yet she doesn't seem to be happy.

mazilwolf @ Sunday, February 12th 2006, 7:05 AM

Annie Felis @ Sunday, February 12th 2006, 12:33 PM
I really like your story about the race. I like it just as much as the picture, honestly. This is really well-done, I like the design of her armor and uniform, and the shiny coloring on the metal.

Starlitdragon @ Sunday, February 12th 2006, 9:54 PM
I really like those shoes. And the way your colour metallic objects- they look so deliciously lickable. The colour combination you used is quite attractive as well.

The race idea sounded interesting- it reminded me a bit of 'A Brave World', where humans are raised and surpressed chemically as an experiment.

freakymary @ Monday, February 13th 2006, 2:15 AM

Tigerhawk @ Thursday, July 28th 2005, 1:17 AM
I'd very much appreciate an explanation on what's going on here. I'm quite lost. The line art and the coloring on Windy's part is really well done, but I would think there would be more shading on Windy's (?) tail but the colors are very vibrant. KK's coloring is unique as always and the wings done in WC give the picture a different effect. The lightning should be brighter too ^^ And becuase it appears to be a "cloudy" and stormy day, the colors should be darker to with the glow of the lightning reflecting off the two. Good job none the less.

Kamourian King @ Thursday, July 28th 2005, 7:35 AM
i didnt want to over do it, TH ^^; and if you guys are wondering about why Ver has alot of blood on him then Windys char is because Ver is a blood mage ^^

Yay! Windbalde you finished it! It looks great! The little 'trails' they have are great! I don't have anything to say, this is really good. The BG is nice, and everything! Ya know, I'm like, rambling...I think. I'll shut up, I'm almost speachless anyway. Niiiice.

Ikena @ Sunday, February 27th 2005, 5:53 PM
Woah windy! this is amazing!
I must say that I love Agression and Absence! tho they are all amazing!
I lve the soft coloring and how alike, yet different they are =3

Queen_Godzilla @ Saturday, March 5th 2005, 2:16 AM
Aah, what can I say?

XD Agression's face makes me laugh. It's that evil grin with those doofy eyes. So cute (well, despite the blood.)

Despair looks appropriately gloomy. However, maybe (s)he should be a bit darker. I noticed already that the color saturation was less than the other creatures but if it was darker it would work with the black more.

Absence -- I thought it'd be neat if (s)he was see-through. Heh. more absent then, eh? But as it is, (s)he is already half-gone and is different from the other ones.

And Self-Loathing -- Are the yellow orbs supposed to be eyeballs? Or... what? It's kind of creepy. Okay, it's REALLY creepy. XD MAKE THE SCARY STOP.

Lurv! <3

I needed to draw him again, even if I messed it up, because Dhell is Dhell.

This is the true design of his wings. He doesn't have them all the time, but that's what they really look like.

His story finally has a name. Yay!

catboi incubus mishi @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 2:11 AM
Beautiful, Windy. Your Dhell works always stand out so much, and this one is no exception. I love his pose, it's so sad, he looks like he's trying in a futile manner to crawl away from danger. I love the glow of white then blue around him, it's lovely. His blue blood always intrigued me, and you illustrate it so well. I think, if he were to have red blood, it wouldn't look as beautifully tragic. I love his wings, they're so beautiful and blood-splattered. His antennae are fuzzy and soft looking, they're actually kind of cute. x3; I like how we can't see his face, it really brings out a larger sense of pity for him. Poor pretty Dhell. *hugs him*

Kari Maxwell @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 2:35 AM
Aww... it's Dhell! He's so cute... even with his blue blood. I like how you have the blue on his wings, it's really interesting. ^_^

darkrose @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 3:57 AM
Cool! He's like a moth! Nifty! I love the wings, beautiful job on those. They're so glowy and perfect... and Dhell really is very cute. The hands look phenomenal and the whole glowy thing is just nifty. Great job.

Tigerhawk @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 3:59 AM
i don't want to sound crule or anything or sound like I'm doing this cause I don't like you (don't get any thoughts in your head cause I don't) but you're always asking to be a better artist. iIn my point of view the neck seems a little to long, and the face. I'm not to sure why it's bugging me but I think its to oval. Can't really say. It could be the hair that makes it seem that way though. I can't really say what you were intending to do so I won't say it's wrong or anything. Because I believe you can do no wrong in art. Many artists would disagree with me but, eh, I don't care what they think.
Over all I believe it is a really good picture.

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 4:05 AM
Very nice lady. I think I like this design best for his wings. Not sure about the entenas, thier more moth like then butterfly and yet that sort of suits him. What I like best is the colors and the sense of light like his wings are almost glowing dispite or threw the blood.

Only thing that bothered me was his head shape till my eyes focused properly and I realized that was his ear. Then it looked fine. Sorry, I see things oddly sometimes.

windblade @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 1:51 PM
heh, I see some people have mistaken his ear for his face... I see what you mean, Jenn. It's a bit difficult to draw his weird ears.

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 7:18 PM
It would be a real easy fix windy. That strand of hair to the left of the ear? I asume it's supose to be infront. So simply curve it some to look more like it's behind the ear like the other strands in front are.

Ghislain WildCat @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 7:46 PM
Already commented on the pic on deviant, but what the heck. XD

Like I once said, I really like how you colored the pic! Especially on the wings. The shades of blue on the wings are simply amazing. ^w^ Oh! And the wings design is really cool too. ^w^ I wish I could draw butterfly/moth wings like that! ^w^

You're awesome windy! *hugs* ^w^

olsie @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 11:24 PM
I really like how damned smooth this came out to be! The wings are creative and very unique from most wings I've seen. The blood is also a nice touch; since it's blue; it really reminds me of winter colors :o

(Edited on February 14, 2005, 11:26 pm)

KHatch @ Tuesday, February 15th 2005, 5:52 AM
Dammit, as always, another glorious windy art.
The smooth likeart and beautiful shading make me mad! Grrr...
No really I think it's wonderful. I wish I could draw like this, you silly windy you.

Prismatic @ Thursday, February 17th 2005, 10:05 PM

Oh how pretty~ Prince of butterflies, I love that title.
The pose is nice, he's soaring through the air!
Wow.. his wings are so magnificant! And the coloring in them is amazing~ I also really like his feathery antenna. They're so cute and fluffy.

Tigerhawk @ Sunday, February 20th 2005, 2:27 PM
Well if it's an ear you should of said something. *pokes Windy* Then some of us wouldn't have made that mistake. Silly.

Amary-chan @ Thursday, February 24th 2005, 8:35 AM
the wings are wonderfully rendered, i like the coloring. the pose is nice though the head looks abit odd, maybe too long of a neck [men have shorter necks then women]

Queen_Godzilla @ Saturday, March 5th 2005, 1:38 AM
Man, I haven't commented on this yet? I really DO need to catch up!

I'd have to agree with Jenny TBN on the antennae -- they are more moth than butterfly and kind of distracting on Dhell there. I'd like it better with little or no antennae. But that's me.

It is angsty, though, so that's very Dhell. Good job on that *LOLz*

I've always liked his blue blood.

^^ hehe. cute! <3 like teh poses

Darkrose @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 9:23 AM
hmm... vanilla... mmm. You're so good at capturing not only good poses and scenes but actual moments, you know? It's more than a comic panel, it's more than simply a picture, it;s like a little window into another life and it rocks. Gorgeous, as always, too.

Kamourian King @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 4:44 PM
oo what a kool gift ^^ Windy, i love your art work

Olsie @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 9:18 PM
I'm afraid to find out the inside joke...o_o;;
Good picture; I love the simple solid coloring you did to complete this!

Kage Kitsune @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 12:31 AM
awww!! This is so adorable windy!! I love your expression when she's saying this XD It's just waaaaay cute. The background is kinda off but I doesn't take away fromt he peice. The shading is always an awesome thing ^_^

oni shi @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 12:45 AM
aww this is so cute! windy i love ur style so much. i love the paper in the box and the shadeing is wounderful hehe so cute

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 4:31 PM
I like your new look, Windy. It's very cute! ^^ The concept for the picture and the solid colours look really great, too. (so used to your soft-colouring... which I miss btw.)

Lady_Sea @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 9:37 PM
Kawaii! I think I would laugh if I understood the inside joke, but they are best left unsaid, eh? XD. The poses are really good. They're not stiff or anything of that sort, just really relaxed, like they would be in real life. You did a nice job on the coloring as well.

Starisan @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:34 PM
Heh, this is a mishevious one. Good highlights on the hair and very good hands. Just wondereing, did the one on the chair lose a slipper? I like the wat you did the fabric under her, it seems very accurate. I also want to thank both you and totenmaske for giving me another chance when I spammed the board and I am very sorry that I did.

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 5:10 AM
I thnk i shall have to leave these two alone soon. *snickers* Nice poses. and ...expressions. LOL Did windy get her hair highlighted?

Harlequin @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 6:17 AM
...SO MUCH PURPLE AND GREEN!!! GAH!!! *rubs at her eyes* Jeez...color abuse Windy, color abuse. lol I kid, I kid. Nice lineart, though Kari's face looks a little odd. The eye is a little too close to the side of her face I think. Though I like the solid coloring...but there's one thing I notice. Some colors have stark shading, like the box and Kari's shirt, while others have really subtle shading, like the skin on both of you, and the greys used for Kari's tail and ears. Of course that's just little stupid stuff I seem so capable of picking out. lol

Basil @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 11:49 PM
Baha! I love your expression, there, Windy! This picture is on cute overload. X3 Absolutely adorable! Bravo!

Mwahaha... dramatic lighting.
Merry Christmas Kaiera, from your secret santa windy! ^^ 'tis Odjin... I hope he's recognizable. I think he's up to no good...

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 1:11 AM
ooh, cool... I love the secretive, shadowy lighting and the almost luminescent white fur on the cape... I also love the little frost things on the (window?) and that look... *shudders* I agree, he's up to no good. SCARY! But awesome pic...

Kari Maxwell @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 1:29 AM
Hehe, he looks evil. I love it though. lol especially the wisps around the opening that he's jumping through. It's awesome. Hope Kaiera likes it. ^^ Loverly shading as always. ^^

Kage Kitsune @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 1:48 AM
I'm loving that cape windy! and the frost is pretty cool too. He's reminding me of the grinch, only much sexier XD I like those green pants ^_^

Kaiera @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 2:02 AM
Oh my goodness!! *_* It's phenominal! Thank you so much!!! I love it! I could easily recognize him. Mainly because you captured the "evil" persona so well :D Again, thank you and Merry Christmas/ belated Happy Birthday =D -huggleofdeath- ^___^ this just made my day!!

olsie @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 5:17 AM
That's a great depiction of her character XD it's so awesome in the spirit and evilness to boot; makes me wish I couldve entered that ScSa thing o_o

relzilla @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 6:01 AM
Wow. This came out really nice. I like the colors you used. The perspective is awesome -- the lighting just makes it look cooler. XD Great texturing, as well. *Pets the cloak.* XB The only thing I'd really change is the sky. It looks a little.. I dunno. Bare. Maybe add a few clouds. The stars also look a little rushed. Other than that, it's really great. ^^

ChronosKit @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 7:42 AM
Mwuahahaha! *grabs socked feet* So cool!

Skittles-chan @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 8:51 AM
Awesome perspective. For some reason the legs really stick out to me. It seems like they're the most difficult part to draw when doing an image with such an angle, but you've done them masterfully. The folds in all the bits of clothing are really good too - again, I noticed the legs first, particularly around the knees, but the cape as well, especially how the fuzzy bit's been shaded.
I'd be a little afraid if that came down my chimney though.

Rigga Mortis @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 7:16 PM
Windyyy. Your watercolours are so awesome. The folding and shading on that cape is so wonderful and I like studying it. :D Same with those...frost-curls (?) around his feet. That is a very interesnt and awkward-looking perspective to draw from, but I think you pulled it off perfectly. His eyes and expression are creepy, fitting really well with this image, and I like how his hand is supporting the bag. :D Really well-done, Windy.

oni shi @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 10:31 PM
windy as allways this is beautiful i love the little feet printy things hehe and the angle is just awsome, i love ur coloring and lineart so much! *snug hug*

Ghislain WildCat @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 8:01 AM
So dark and evil looking! XD
Oh! And I can't help but notice all the cool effects you did with the window like those frosty twirls and the shape of the feet being pressed against it. ^w^

Kamourian King @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 4:56 PM
man, Windy, this is one of your best ^^ i bet kaiera will love this ^^ and your shadeing in this is sweet

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 4:39 PM
What's he doing in the cold wearing only socks?

Great angle, and use of dramatic lighting & shading. Brilliant as usual! ^^

(And he's just sooooooo eeeeeevil!!!)

Starisan @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:42 PM
This is another one that has a totally awesome animation. It's a unique and tough angle. Good job

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 7:24 AM
Sweet! IThis definatly sets a different mood to the norm of christmas. Kinda like futurama and the santa-bot. Lol. then again i have this nightmare before christmas tune stuck in my mind. I like the diffferent perspective. But i would have liked to have seen a more toned sky.

Harlequin @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:23 AM
Can I just say...I love the perspective on this one? The whole bottom of the feet up is just...SO COOL!! Now...I'm assuming he's standing on the equivalent of a skylight, and what has otherwise been called 'fur' is really the frost on said skylight. The reds in the cape are really nice, they really show a nice folding of the fabric where it's gathered around the neck. The white edging...well...the blue used on it certainly makes it look textured. Very interesting look. I really like it...just like I like those green pants. Seriously...I want a pair of pants in THAT color green now. In addition to being a gorgeous pair of pants...the shading does that textured thing. I really like how you do that, it just makes the clothing on the characters seem more real. Same thing with the shirt, more of that nifty texturing. Awesome contribution to the secret santa project Windy. It's very nice! It makes me smile like a not so sad panda! XD!!

kyokurrychan @ Sunday, January 30th 2005, 5:02 PM
ebil? ^^ i likes it a lot. hehe. awesome perspective. and the feetsies are dont well against the glass <3
