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.

Tigerhawk @ Friday, June 10th 2005, 7:18 PM

Thanks so very much Toten!

Would you believe it? I tried to finish this picture on Oekaki and it won't let me. So I used photoshop instead.

After being asked to say, I suppose I will. And thank you Mazil for that wonderful picture ^^ really appreciate it, I really do. I love getting pictures from other people. I wish I had more ;P Plus it was extremly thoughtful of you. So I'm staying. My first promise broken.

I love this picture to bits because it's very colorful!!! and I did the details by hand.
Are you wondering about why they are wearing green? To the Pantheras, green is a symbol of stealth and luck. Almost all Faelidaes (my cat races) favor green as their tribal color. Gold is used as a symbol of power. As you see here the Panthera in the foreground is wearing a green cape with a green gem holding it in place with a gold circlet and a golden bangle with smaller green gems. This shows rank as you can tell the other two are only wearing gold, (with the exception with the panthera jumping down, the green is on his arrow bag and it has green triangles) a light weight form of protection. Green is also used for camoflage.

The reason my Pantheras are purple is because my Class Mascot for high school is now the Purple Panther. All schools have a Mascot. At my high school, our Mascot is the Golden Eagle. Ever since the Class of 2000, our school has made a tradition of Class colors and Class Mascots. 1999/2000 was Year of the Bulldog, their color was silver. 2001/2002-Tigers, orange. 2002/2003, Dragon, red. 2004/2005-Gryphins, green (yes we do have a green gryphon masoct). And my class 2005/2006- Panther, purple. But or Mascot is black with a purple jersey. Kinda funny looking because it covers the whole body. But I must say it's very light and you can move in it, but it gets hot in there like heck!! I was the mascot for the step down rally for a dance my class made to wish the seniors good bye. We, the Class of 2006, have made a new tradition and therefore every junior class must make a dance to wish the seniors good bye and present the new mascot. I swear my school is not the Golden Eagles but more so the "Golden Zoo."

i would greatly appreciate it if you did NOT tell me what I did wrong in this picture.

Little Elf @ Saturday, June 11th 2005, 10:32 PM
0.o This. Is. So. Neat! You drew the running panthers wonderfully! The colors are very nice, and I like the jewel. It looks so pretty! The gold accessories are very pretty too, and the grass looks nice.

olsie @ Sunday, June 12th 2005, 12:29 PM
The color combinations rock; creative version of anthro cats as well. I love that version of purple so much o-o

The Blue Sorceress @ Sunday, June 12th 2005, 5:45 PM
Well, I like how this turned out. The color combinations are interesting.

Arisu @ Sunday, June 12th 2005, 11:12 PM
It's been said a little too much already, but the color combinations rock. :3 I like the way you folded the green cloth and the way you watercolored the jewels really makes them look like... jewels! :P All the little shiny details really jump out at you.

shuzo @ Wednesday, June 15th 2005, 11:56 PM
woo, totally awesome. I can't draw anything but humanoids (and I'm not too great at that) so I'm especially impressed by anyone who can do such wonderful kitty-creatures like this. The shading, colors and lineart are great. Keep it up!

Prismatic @ Sunday, June 19th 2005, 4:48 AM
This is really interesting. Pantheras unite~ I really like the shading you did with the purples, they look all soft like. And you did a really excellent job with the running poses!! That's just what my kitty looks like when she's skittering about. Especially the one in the upper left.
I also really like the textures you used on the grass and the wonderful job you did on it's golden eye. It's so pretty and shiney.~~

ok~ It's done now. I had to readjust one of her eyes, because I realized it was not in the right position. Ack.. that's hard to do once you've already colored some. But yep, that's it. It's one of my characters.

wow... those eyes go right into you.. if tyou get what i mean! and you can see everystrand of her hair, the eyes are really realistic! sad to hear you had to change where the eye was, but it looks better for it. and i want her earpiece! *sulks* oh well. but i really do love this.

Pretty! Her eyes are so captivating! Her lips are cute too, and her hair, it's all pretty! The shading is nice too, and such a cuuute nose she has!

The Blue Sorceress @ Sunday, June 12th 2005, 5:43 PM
This is really great. One suggestion before you're finished is to give her more eyelashes on her upper eyelid, especially toward the outside on the right eye. Just a few lashes on the lower lid works well, but on the upper lid there should be more. Anyway, you're doing a fantastic job. I love the eyes in particular.

AnimeCanuck @ Monday, June 13th 2005, 1:43 PM
Very nice so far. I love the detail of the eyes and lips. Are you going to go over the hair with some airbrushes?

Hey hey!
This is my first picture. Really wish I had time to make a better first impression, but my computer is on a timer to shut off at 10:30pm. Right now it\'s 10:25 so I\'m cutting it pretty close. I\'ll probably go back and add some more details when I get the chance. I just felt like saying hello tonight, so... hello!


Wow guys. I had no idea what to expect coming here but all the comments and advice have been wonderful! I've never been to such a helpful oekaki before. You guys are all great. I'll do my best to stay active here. :D

I really like this. A lot. The character is superbly colored and drawn and the background is very, very spiffy. I heart the little glowing lights.

Totenmaske @ Saturday, June 4th 2005, 1:15 AM
Welcome to Drowkaki Arisu! For a post that took an hour you really show a lot of familiarity with the application ? resulting in a very impressive first post on the board even due to the fact of a time constraint. You truly put in a lot of interesting details and techniques when creating this visually pleasing image. Before I continue with the comment, please make sure you comment on five fellow Drowkaki members? images on the board with each new post (three is the minimum but I prefer five ? with key points of what you like and don?t like about an image ? to help others refine their talent *well this is what I would like to see, but I can?t demand too much*).

But anyway onto the comment, I really love the way you brought everything together ? the colouring to create a wonderful base for the later details that would be the face and hair was a nice touch ? creating a sense of lineless character rendering, though I kind of liked the pigtails originally planned in the animation to be truthful. The way you had brought out the hair and then the eyes was very well done, such smooth line art. The little suggestion of a nose then indication of the lips was very nicely done, with the colour variation to create shadows upon the face before moving on to the body (and after readjusting the width) was very impressive.

There are a little rough areas, many I feel are the result of your urge to finish up the image before you lost time on the computer for today, when you finished the character design you did not clean up a few of the colour bleeding in the hair or on the face slightly ? though really the more I look at it, it seems it just needs a slight smoothing over to rectify this issue. The lighting though in this image is just fantastic ? especially the fact that you took the time to flatten the background and line art to the lower layer then paint the top layer with a faint darkness erasing the segments that would bring out the sense of lighting to the scene.

The fact that you add such a luminous glow when you did the tree was just a wonderful touch ? and treat to the eye really, driving forth the sense of a moon just out of sight in the scene. The faerie lights were very well done btw, I really like the way they wraps around this character. The light playing upon the eyes is just a wonderful touch. Really you brought out just about all the details you could in the time you gave yourself ? and masterfully so ? I like the highlights in the hair ? very soft, and the silver of the collar reflecting light just so is very good. The facial expression is very well detached ? as if the character you are depicting is devoid of emotion; thus the name of the piece ?soultaker? does fit.

Excellent work, I look forward to more of your posts on the board and hope you enjoy posting with us! Remember to comment on other works!

The colors... wow, the COLORS. I love them! They're so soft and smooth. I like the black. For some reason, that really appeals to me. Just the faintest bit of highlighting, etc. It looks very nice. And I love the little bubble things. Kudos!

Renmazuo @ Saturday, June 4th 2005, 5:46 PM
Oh wowO_OIt's incredible how you did this in such a short time, and even if it took you more, it would still leave me speechless, i really HAD to look at the animation!The atmosphere in this is so oniric and magic...*faints*

shuzo @ Sunday, June 5th 2005, 12:44 AM
There's really not much to say that Toten hasn't already. All I can saw is wow- this piece is gorgeous. The simplicity of the background and the brody contrast well with the face. The lighting, as Toten mentioned, is stunning. If you continue to create such wonderful drawings, I will have to glomp you and eat your talent.

Anyway, welcome to drowkaki!

Woooooooooooooow! I can't really say anything with out being repetitive or just plain stupid, but I'll risk it anyway. Love love love love love! Everything is so well done, and, very pretty!

This picture is fabulous for your first post. Oh!! And a late welcome to the board for you~
I love the darkness of this picture, and the multiple shades you used to set the tone. I'm especially fond of the leaves on the tree.
You did a really nice job on the subjects face. The expression is really nice, and I really like the way their hair falls. The use of browns for the lineart gave it a nice softer feeling. I like the small bit of light in the picture too~

I like the suggestion of wings in the background! It's an effect I've tried once or twice already, really nice.

you're so good with anatomy...great job on that and I luv how you make the shadings looking all smooth...yes...the shirt rocks!...but...if I were to mug her or anything I'd like to know where she put her schampoo...XD I want my hair lookin all shiney and beautiful like that! LOL

Psychoferret @ Saturday, June 4th 2005, 1:23 AM
Nice. Perspective. Aaaah! Yesh. x_x

Anyway, I love the way its turned out. I like the wingy things in the background, and the simple pose. It looks very nice! I do have a question, though... when you do your lineart, the black... do you use watercolor? What tool do you use to get that smooth, smooth outline?

Harlequin @ Saturday, June 4th 2005, 7:52 PM
Yeah, I use black watercolor for my lines, with opacity generally at the default for one pixel, 241, though sometimes I do use 245. Suprisingly that little difference in number makes a pretty drastic one when you're working.

Prismatic @ Wednesday, June 15th 2005, 4:55 PM
Hehe.. this is so great. I really love their t-shirt. Very nice shading in it as well. Then again I love greens.~ As always you do a fantastic job with anatomy. Her pose is so great. And their hair is truely amazing.~~ And of course the eyes, the different shades of red in them and the hint of shadow on their lids gives them so much depth. As has been mentioned previously the hint of wings is really great as well~

I like the details of the scales on her tail, and as someone also commented, the eyes are lovely. The reflection in the water is also very nice, though you might blur the reflection of the tail a little bit.

Neat tail! So long and shiny! Excellent detailon it and the background.

Her eye looks a ilttle weird. I think it's too big and (width/length) and it goes too close to her ear. I dunno exactly, but something about the placement just seems off.

it looks good so far...but a bit sketchy...But I know you're not done so I won't say anymore ^_^

olsie @ Monday, April 4th 2005, 7:04 PM
I like DDR too...I just advanced up a level to standard recently and I'm working my ass off to get to heavy.... on the controller. I could never use the dance pad....I have a story and a half of DDR at the mall XD
The song Kakumei is the one I got inspired from...I think it makes real good chase music!

is not to sloppy, better then mine at any rate.his eyes are kool yars. who does he love? and his cheeks are kool, my friend is demanding to know what he is holding, but i dont think he is holding anything much. the fur in his coat is nice and cosy-looking! and the snowy background is good, yars, my friend thinks the same.

The pastel colors are very pretty together.Great job on this pic! :)

Prismatic @ Monday, April 25th 2005, 6:49 PM
I thought his hand was balled up because he was trying to keep himself from crying. He looks so sad.. his expression. And his eyes, aww. Poor lil guy. I really like the soft colors and the fluffy clothes. and of course his face is my favorite part. Neato little specks of light about him as well.~ I wish I could give him a hug

Totenmaske @ Tuesday, March 22nd 2005, 1:58 AM
Very nice so far, keep up the good work, though her being a furry character I don't know if I would mark it adult if I was you are not but I am glad you did. Keep up the good work, the slightly hidden line art really works well with this so far. Really I like it as is (though the background seems a little off in the colouring then if it was finished) the wonderful way the pink (a colour I don't normally like at all) really seems to bring the pose of the character into focus. Just had to let you know that I like this so far. ;3

Happy V-Day, everyone! Here's to every person who's going to spend the day of lovey-dovey cuddling sickness locked in their rooms with computers, video games, and single serving pizzas. Cheers!

This is Melia, she's a Djernak which is a creature of my own devising. Basically they're low elves as upposed to high elves, they are shorter and stockier than high elves, with longer ears (ususally with fur although in some circles it is expected for that to be removed) and long tails tipped with fur like a lion's. The fuzzy thing beside her is Simalea, her familiar. All Djernak are born with a nickling (that creature's kind) familiar that they live with until death. They resemble a fox, but not as long or as lanky, they have longer fur, larger eyes, a shorter snout, smaller paws, and two antannae that glow according to mood and lighting. Also they have a pair of small and cute (but funcional) pink wings on their backs.

Melia was taken from her home as a smaller child and brought as a slave to one of the elfin cities, where a rich and somewhat perverted old elf bought her and took her to his private castle to be raised in his harem. She is the favorite, and all her needs are taken care of and so she has no reason to run away. She still misses her brother on occasion, though, as in his picture.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Tigerhawk @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 4:15 AM
I really like the hand ....thingy.Forgot what they're called. the outfit is really nice as well as well as the coloring. But I do believe the head is shifted too much to the left. Doesn't look right in my sight. Detail is very well done.

Kaiera @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 10:52 PM
I like the story that goes along with the piece....very creative. In the piece itself, I love the highlighting, particularly the reflection from the moon. Nicely done

catboi incubus mishi @ Tuesday, February 15th 2005, 1:10 AM
I really like the story behind the image and her pretty harem outfit. I love how you did the sheer material with watercolors, it looks very pretty. This image looks almost like an illustration out of a story, like 1001 Arabian Nights. :]

KHatch @ Tuesday, February 15th 2005, 5:48 AM
The idea and design is awesome. I love the shading on her tummy and hair.
The outfit is lovely and the little creature is so cute! *steals*

Prismatic @ Thursday, February 17th 2005, 9:11 PM
Oh so pretty! And what a neat idea for a sub-race. It seems you put a lot of time into developing it.
The anatomy on this is very well done. Am particularly fond of her hand and the proportions of her face. All the details in her jewelery and clothing is wonderful! It's such a cute outfit, and as has been stated before I like how you used watercolor for the sheerness of her clothing.
Her lil friend thingy is so cute. It's eye is wonderful~ I wish I could see its wings. I love pink wings. -drool- It looks like it's trying to comfort her as she's thinking of her brother.
The softness of the background is really pretty. I like the soft light of the moon, and the buildings in the far off distance~

Amary-chan @ Thursday, February 24th 2005, 8:33 AM
very nicely done, the texture on the cat's fur is very nice, and its good that you used color instead of black for shadows, very smart!

Crest @ Friday, February 25th 2005, 6:55 PM
The outfit is really nicely drawn and designed. I like the necklace she is wearing and the shine on it and the earrings. And the hand jewelry is cool looking as well. I like the little critter...it's cute. XD And nice pointy ears on the lady. :D

Queen_Godzilla @ Saturday, March 5th 2005, 1:46 AM
Well, as long as she's happy with her job I'm good!

First of all -- that costume really caught my eye. Eeeeeexcellent. I like the dangly beads and the heart design around the rim of the lingerie. A very detailed costume, for a very rich girl X3.

And good job with the implied city in the background. Just enough detail to specify what it is, but not enough to make it stand out overly much.

Nice lighting too. I don't know if it's the most effective as it is or not. Ah, well.

Her familiar is pretty unremarkable, though. Looks like a brown cat. Woo.

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*

(Edited on February 14, 2005, 2:15 am)

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

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.

darkrose @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 11:25 PM
Right. Girl. I knew that. This came out fantastic, the pose is excellent and the shading/lineart is so smooth.. the strands of hair are captivating, and the epression is quite amusing. It's your hands that really stand out to me, though... they're just amazing. The hands and the anatomy of her back, both. My only comment would be something about the back arm, how it folds. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but it seems somehow not right... dang, wish I could be more helpful, say something other than 'wow' but I guess it just wasn't meant to be <{^.^}>

Starisan @ Tuesday, February 15th 2005, 2:13 PM
OOO, this i seriouly awesome and creepy. I really like the position, you did a very good job with perspective on the limbs. I think the tufts t the end of the ears are a nice touch because they keep the color scheme going and the eyes moving.

Prismatic @ Sunday, February 20th 2005, 1:35 AM
Yaay you added a background! Really nice one even. The planks fit so well together~
Absolutly wonderful job on the shading. You always do a great job on that, but this one is particualry well done... as well as terrific line work. Her hair is magnificant. I really love the pose as well! Her anatomy is great~

Queen_Godzilla @ Saturday, March 5th 2005, 1:10 AM
I tried to check, but I couldn't find anything, so... I'll just go with what I can assume here. I am currently assuming that Verre is a girl. (I know that Sakmet is. Holy jibblies, maybe Verre IS a guy? I dunno!)

Well, if Verre was/is a girl you SHOULD be able to see part of her breast between her chin and her shoulder there. It's because gravity and her posture would cause breasts to fall forward. Now, I know you don't want to make it outright porn, but... eh.

And if it's not a girl, then... just keep that tidbit for future reference XD

Other than that... DAMN. XD You're putting a lot of work into the hair and the floor. Good job! I really, really love the hair -- it's my favorite color and it's really shiny too.

I always liked how you did eyes.

Very predatory pose. X3

OK, so no comments on the leg thing. Still, this is a BEAUTIFUL image. The colors are so soft and vibrant, the details so perfectly in place. The dragon-horse-thing looks perfectly at home in this environment, very calm and peaceful and so free. Lovely work, freakymary! Welcome back!

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 18th 2005, 8:51 AM
I love this a lot! So pretty and smooth.
While I can see the horse and the dragon in this beast, I also see human. The way the front legs are done is, to me, reminescent of the thighs of a humanoid. That's what I see. It didn't bother me at all, I think it's great!
I really like the serene face and the flowing gorgeous hair. More arts, freakymary! I loves your stuff.

Errisandra @ Tuesday, January 18th 2005, 4:38 PM
She is stunning to say the least. Love the shading, the background, the style, the pose...needless to say, everything!

Kari Maxwell @ Wednesday, January 19th 2005, 4:35 AM
Oh. My. God. Mary! This is beautiful! Your creatures are so cute. I want one! ^_^ I love your background also, very nice. The front arms of your creature are different, but, I like it. Pretty. ^_^ And no, I didn't mean different of "ONG! It's bent wrong!" I actually meant I like it because it is different. It makes it more interesting.

Starisan @ Wednesday, January 19th 2005, 8:55 PM
Wow, there is a lot of detail here. Wonderful. The hair is great and so it the anatomy (very accurate). I have mentioned this before but I really like the blur background effect because it really gives the feeling of depth. Very pretty and very magical.

Kage Kitsune @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 1:26 AM
This is awesome! I love the dragon/unicorn's face the most, the eye is wonderful and the hair aww the hair ::pets it:: the background is kind of vage and fits in with the mist and everything ^_^

Chime @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 3:34 PM
Ahh, another one of Mary's creations. As always, the style is wonderful. The water seems a bit strange, like a wave is about to loom over the "dragon" . The reast of the backgground, however, is wonderful - your trademark taxture-use is lovely ^^
The shading on the body is great, but the hair draws the attention away. It looks slightly out-of-place here, but still, Wonderful work ^^


Kaede @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 1:00 AM
You are so amazing Mary. This is awesome. I love your color choices, and then your coloring itself is amazing. The horse-dragons eye is just beautiful. I really love that backround too, the water is awesome! =D

Crest @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 8:49 PM
That thing is so cool looking. I want one. XD The background is really nicely drawn...love the grass and the rocks. Nifty creature. :D

Jennifer @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 8:59 PM
This is so very beautiful. I love how she stands out from the background. Her eye and facial features remind me of the Last Unicorn. She has such beauty and grace. I am in love with your background.

Shakaku @ Monday, January 24th 2005, 9:17 PM
Beautiful setting and beautiful creature! Smooth and gentle shading. It's awesome. I know you said that people keep sayimng the front -leg- is wrong, but I also realize that yeah, it's suppose to be that way. I think whay confuses peple is the fact the way the paw curls under. not really the leg itself. Also the front legs have slightly thicker shading which draws your eyes to them. The anotomy is very well done and the over all look is excellent

Queen_Godzilla @ Tuesday, March 1st 2005, 9:16 PM
Hey Mary.

First of all -- the background is quite lovely. I believe your usage of textured brushes for the landscape was excellent. It really brings out the textures present in nature of such objects. Hoorah!

The dragon is really lovely too. Unique design for something, having two sets of backlegs.

As for the legs -- I think it's not the arms per se that throw it off -- I think it's the shoulders and the way the arms stand with it. I honestly don't know how to move that shoulder, but I think that's the problem; that's where I'm getting that artist vibe.

It was supose to be Lei, the boy version of me (can be viewed here: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/5677870/ ), but after I did the face and started on the hair, I realized it looked nothing like him.

So I played with it some more and realized... it was Nicholas!

Your all familiar wit my Christmas Angel Noel (can be seen here: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/13726884/ ), well this is his rencarnation, the very Americain, Garfield loveing, Angelic Librarian turned Guardian Angel. This is a MUCH younger version of him. Go here to see an old 1997 version of him: http://www.angelfire.com/art/ryuyujin/Nicho.html

He's giveing all of Drowkaki little valintine notes because thats how I view V-Day... a time to make everyone smile any way I can!

Awesome image, Jenn! I always always love your images, and this is no exception. I love the lack of lineart, and the angel's happy expression. x3
Happy Valentine's day! :D

Whee! Pretty! I love your shading style so much... it's always so clean and nifty, and this has such an amazing sense of flow to it. So happy!

KHatch @ Tuesday, February 15th 2005, 5:43 AM
The linelessness of this is wonderful! I'm in love with those pants, in particular.
Great perspective and shading and everything!

Prismatic @ Thursday, February 17th 2005, 9:07 PM
I agree with your views on valentine's day. That day.. at least I should say earlier in the day I had all the people I care about come over and cooked a big meal for them and gave them all a card~
I really like this picture. He has such a nifty pose. And of course your use of solid shading is amazing! And lineless. Really this is fantastic.
I really like his expression and his shoes! They're both rather detailed. and the coloring in his wings is great.

windblade @ Saturday, February 19th 2005, 10:59 AM
As always, your work is really, really cool-looking! You have a great understanding of fabrics physics, the folds look great, and the way his shirts is blowing around really gives the impression of movement and "falling"... Happy valentine's day (late!)

(Hee, he must have the same hairdresser as Northe!)

Karasu @ Monday, February 21st 2005, 1:33 AM
OH my gosh, this is so beautiful for having almost no black line art here. Not that it's a requirement for beauty, but it shows a skill that few can perfect...and I think you're pretty darned close to perfection here. I love how you captured the motion, honestly, I think it's just fabulous. I think that the hand (and I know its really hard to do that perspective for a hand) needs a LITTLE work, it seems a little out of proportion for the perspective. But. You know. Whatever you think, you be the artist! otherwise, I think you did a spectacular job here and I really like this as a fav of yours!

Verna_Venisa @ Monday, February 21st 2005, 12:12 PM
This is so awesome *o*! Your style is so original and fun *stares*

Amary-chan @ Thursday, February 24th 2005, 8:41 AM
love your style, great use of block coloring. the pose and composition are set up very well as well

Crest @ Friday, February 25th 2005, 6:53 PM
Love the design of the image. The wings are really nicely drawn out and I think the hair looks awesome. The flow of the shirt is nicely protrayed and I adore the way you colored the image with the lack of some lineart. I like the shoe. XD

Cute! *loves* Wonderful everything here, from the lineart to the coloring and shading... although it looks rather like the picture was compressed somehow from the upload... that's kind of disappointing, because of how much it rocks. Yay mullet power!

Crest @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 12:32 AM
Yeah, it got compressed when I had to save it and send it to Toten.

Kari Maxwell @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 2:36 AM
Your art reminds me of someone... It really does. It's really neat as well. I like it. I like the background as well, it's all coolness and whatnot. -nods- Cute character!

windblade @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 3:46 AM
Wow, the bright hair colors and eyes really give life to this picture. The highlights in his hair are well done! I like the character design.

Jennifer, The Blue Narian @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 4:01 AM
I've always adored how simple and bold your solids are. And the colors just contrast and complemint each other perfectly.

now as for why he's naked in the trees.... *shoves the evil perverted side of her nature back in the closet" Gad! Sometimes an over active imagination is a BAD thing.

Kaiera @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 10:55 PM
ahh.....Cray looks wonderful as usual. Long live the mullet! I love his expression....looks like someone just stumbled upon his nekkedness. ...Speaking of which...he can hide in my bushes <3

KHatch @ Tuesday, February 15th 2005, 5:54 AM
The lineart is so crispy I just want to crunch it all up!
The way the hair falls on the shoulders is a nice touch, and the pretty highlighting is oh so shiny!
Very cute.

Prismatic @ Thursday, February 17th 2005, 10:10 PM
I like the color combination. They're cute. the lips and nose are really well done! The bright colors in this are great. And I like how their hair just has a sudden change of color. And the carrying through of red throughout other parts of the picture~
The background is all nifty like too. I like the solidness of it with all the little crescents

Amary-chan @ Thursday, February 24th 2005, 8:34 AM
i like your coloring style, very cell-like. your lines are very good and its nice how you used varying line width throughout, especially with the details

Right, well I\'ll get back to this probably tomorrow. It\'s gaming night, time to take off... but I didn\'t want to lose what I had. This will eventually be the Dark Goddess Loriana from my world, I haven\'t yet decided if she\'s wearing a mask or if she\'s just adjusted her face to be metallic <{^.^}>. Any comments or helpful tips would be appreciated now while I still have room to change things!

Yay! Done! Took a rather different turn than I had expected... but I did her hair and then the stars just begged to be put in, and it kind of went from there. So yah, any comments helpful. Loriana, Goddess of Darkness and Mother of Night.

Holy crap! Very very nice; the colors of the shades and highlights are perfect so far! :D

Starisan @ Monday, February 7th 2005, 3:17 PM
Great on the coloring, I could believe that it is her real face...If you think of it in terms of dawn being young and new, rebirth and night being the final stage of a day. I like the stars in her hair, my only comment would be that the day looks a little too bright to be heading into evening.

Karasu @ Tuesday, February 8th 2005, 12:41 AM
wow! How creative! I really love this, a lot! Since i live in new mexico, I should say that this is very southwestern themed. : ) you did a good job here on the shadng, but I think the eyes could have used a little more depth....the sunset is just gorgeous though! and I love the stars in the hair : )

Cai @ Tuesday, February 8th 2005, 11:11 PM
The metallic look of the mask/face is very very nice, though the shift from blue to gray to blue (forehead/upper face to lower face to chin) is a bit awkward. The night sky in her hair looks beautiful, though.

Her eyes also seem a bit unfocused for some reason. But overall, I'm impressed - I couldn't do something with watercolors like this. ^.^

Totenmaske @ Friday, February 11th 2005, 5:20 AM
Just to let you know darkrose, I?ve archived this image last night simply because I was really impressed with the overall look of this ? sorry about not getting to commenting in a timely fashion though. That being said I must say the reason I really like this image, is the fact that she reminds me of the ?Robot? in Fritz Lang?s Metropolis. There was a comment I thought, that said something about the way the transition of the faces blue seemed a little off ? but I don?t see it now for some reason, but I have to agree that there seems to be that kind of effect ? plus the eye seems a little out of proportion on the ?dawn/sunset? side of the canvas which gives it a rather wonky look mainly due to that eye. But still that does not mean that this image is anything other than exceptional.

That being said, I really like the overall look of the skyline, especially the nice cloud work is rather realistic with the way you have eased the overall look? not concentrating on fluffy clouds you seem to go with the more subtle indication of wispy work, which in my eye seems more realistic. The little sunlight rays are nice, as well. Frankly the image itself is impressive in this area more than anything else.

I also like the fact of the stars in her hair, truly come across as the coming of night. Everything seems to work wonderfully, except for the wonky aspect the eyes bring to the table not to mention that the more I look at it, the red lips seem to be a little too much colour for the scene ? taking away somewhat of the feel overall on canvas. But this I personally think is just my preference ? if you did the lips and eyes as you did the face (with that skin effect) I think the actual sense of transposing the two elements of night and day could have been brought further into the end product. But overall this is a fantastic image darkrose, hope to see more of the same attention to detail of the skyline as well as the face in general in your future images!

Prismatic @ Friday, February 11th 2005, 9:16 PM
This is a really beautiful piece of art. I'm loving it. Your use of color is so marvelous.
I really like the way it seems she's rolling in the night as the sun sets. Sort of reminds me of when Apollo rides his chariot to make the sun rise~ The stars in her hair are really pretty. She really does seem to be partially made up of the night sky.
The highlights and shading in her face are so good. There's so much depth there, she really does seem to be three dimensional. The softness of teh background is wonderful as well! I particualry like the rays of light coming from the sun.~~

Ikena @ Sunday, February 13th 2005, 4:45 PM
ooh nice! I must admit she kinda scares me tho!
I really like the colorings on the face, it looks so metallic! =3
the bg is simple but nice i like it!

Tigerhawk @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 4:10 AM
her face gives me the impression of metal. can't say to much why. but I do like the effect with the hair making the day turn to night.

Mwee!! Thanks Toten!! =3 *huggles*

This took me like 3 hours to finish and I almost die when I thought it was lost.

Anyway, this is an old character of mine see her here http://www.drowtales.com/kaki/browsegallery.php?pic=32854&gallery=Ikena
I've been wanting to redraw her for a long time, she's all grown up now and such.
Altho she still doesnt have a name, I like Agatha but i dont know if that name suits a drow, what say you? any sugestion?

Well the marking in her forehead is a birthmark, she has the gift of foresight and the marking bleeds everytime she has a premonition or when she uses too much mana =3

Anyway I'd love to know what you think, and hopefully this is a I'm-back pic, I'll try to come here and draw more often! =]

Beautiful artwork. She has such a lovely face and the eyes are so cool. Love the flowing hair and the shape of her body. And the symbol on her forehead is neat looking. :D

darkrose @ Sunday, February 13th 2005, 9:35 PM
Yay! Yes, come back more often! I always enjoy your artwork. The shading is wonderful, it's so hard to find a skinny girl with MUSCLE, DAMNIT! Heh. So good on you for that. Her neck is overly long, but to me that just looks like stylization, and if that's your thing then run with it. Her expression is distand and kind of blank, which I think goes with your descriptor. Her hands are beautiful, excellent with that. Also the hair, it's graceful and flowing and nifty! So welcome back (I hope) and staystaystaystaystay!

Jennifer @ Sunday, February 13th 2005, 11:57 PM
She's so very pretty, Ikena. She looks like she is about to have a premonition. The way her hair is flowing and the red background seem to show that her premonition will be a powerfully ominous one. I do like the name Agatha for her, even if it doesn't seem like a drow-ish name. You could keep the name, just have it spelled something like A'gtha.
Love your work always.

Tigerhawk @ Monday, February 14th 2005, 4:03 AM
pretty much what i commented on Deviantart, still love the hair. The eyes are very pretty and the outfit very spiffy. the shading is very well done as well as the lighting. background was a good choice.

KHatch @ Tuesday, February 15th 2005, 6:07 AM
The neck seems a little too long for me, but everything else is nice.
Her forehead thingy looks like the one off of what was her name, Kyo'nne? From Drowtales.
I love the shiny of it all. =)

Starisan @ Tuesday, February 15th 2005, 2:21 PM

Prismatic @ Friday, February 11th 2005, 10:06 PM
Very very good! There are very few people that can do pixel shading as well as you. I envy your skill! hehe.
The lineart on this is so crisp and clean. Yep, crisp indeed. Even if that word can't normally be used in art. I dunno.~
I like the layers of the background, all nifty like. And their eyes are really good.

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.

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

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.

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!!

This is a pic to show what my mood was for the past 2 weeks for me. I know some of you knows what it is all about, but I'd rather not explain it here since it's pretty personnal...

kyokurrychan @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 7:54 AM
waaaaaaaaah, that pic makes me uber sad ;.;

Darkrose @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 9:20 AM
aww.... I wanna pretty kitty. Of course that's how I've gotten into my current predicament, with two cats that HATE each other and one that's more neurotic than a Jhonen Vasquez character... but alas. Your picture is so sad.... hopefully you'll feel better soon <{^.^}>

Kern @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 9:35 AM
aww poor kitten *pick him up and feed him*
Well i guess you holidays sucked :/ sorry to hear about that

Harlequin @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 10:07 AM
Well, I know a little bit of what happened. And I've gotta say, I can see how it'd be damn depressing, but don't let that cloud of saddness stick around too long. It's harder to move on if you dwell too long. Though I'm really one to talk about that...

I think my favorite part of this...is the condensed breath. See, that's the type of thing I would forget, and it's those little details that just make an image look right. I like the snow gathering on the tops of the wings, and the flaps of the box, sort of shows how long this little guy has been outside. I love the fur markings, and with a subject so small I personally think it's a bit difficult to get a decent amount of detail as well as color depth in. But on both fronts you've done an excellent job. I like the piece, it's really well done, what inspired it...well, not so much.

Feel better soon Ghis, just don't stay broken up over it for too long.

windblade @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 3:35 PM
oh... my... I don't think I ever saw you draw something this depressing, Ghis! But at the same time, I have to say it's one of my favourite of yours. Poor Ghis kitty! *puts an umbrella over the box so you don't get snowed on, and a large fluffy blanket so you don't freeze* Feel better, 'kay? We care about you.

Carbuncle @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 4:03 PM
AWW! this is so sad... I'm sorry about you r Holidays... I hope you feel better soon!~~~ I love the texture of the box and the paper they look damp..the snow is alittle clumpy, but I think I'v seen snow like that... overall a wonderful (sad) pic!

Kamourian King @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 4:36 PM
thats really sad Gris.... illl give the kitty a nice home to stay ^^

oni shi @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 9:16 PM
*snug hug* i dunno whut happened but we luv you! *cuddles kitty* beautiful image i love everything

Olsie @ Saturday, January 1st 2005, 9:17 PM
Optimism is the key; and drawing this type of mood out helps ease the bad thoughts.
It's a great picture; you did a wonderful job with the quality. The mood makes me feel all sad inside though :/

AnimeCanuck @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 4:21 PM
This is the most heartstring-pulling, emotional picture I've ever seen you draw, Ghislain! *pat pats* Feel better, okay? All the tiny details on the kitten are amazingly well done. And he is soooo cute! (But it's sooo sad!!!!!) Just remember that you're never alone, okay?

Kamourian King @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 8:10 PM
congrats for the arcive ^^

Lady_Sea @ Sunday, January 2nd 2005, 9:31 PM
Aw. I'll keep you in my prayers ;_:. I hope whatever is wrong gets better.

This is really such a depressing pictures. I'm back on my kitty obsession and I want another kitten ;_:. The snow was really nicely done. It has that frostly cold look to it with the blue mixture. The sign behind the kitten was also done well. It has this tattered, beaten up city street like look to it. Did that make sense?
Nicely done. *steals the free kitten*

Starisan @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:32 PM
It looks like you were feeling lonely, I'm sorry if that's the case. I think this image has a beautiful glow to it and the ralism is great. The box definately has depth and the Kitten seems to have good substance in the box. Great technique and a powerful feeling that comes across.

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 8:19 PM
I already told you what I think. =)
I like this piece, though. The emotion is well expressed and the kitty is well drawn. The taped up note is just wonderful, but yet so so sad.
I like it. It's sad, but I like it.

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 5:02 AM
indeed. This is depressing. Such a cute little kitten. Kinda reminds me of my cat when he was a kitten. Malnurished and pitiful and yet the only thing he wants is to be loved. This is a very emotional piece.

The snow is colored nicely. adding varaitions. The old box is ...well..old and ...a box. Nice job shading the box and creating the soggy falling apart apearence. and the bricks and sign are shaded nicly as well.

Basil @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 11:54 PM
Such a sad picture... It's gorgeous, but so sad... Feel better, Ghis. The Drowkaki kids are always here for you. <3
