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.

"Ahhhh...nothing better than a nice long bed-vacation after Goblin hunting...."

>D Alright. Ive been totally obsessed with Final Fantasy XI. Hahahah. The appearance of the character is based upon the Mithra. For those of you who dont play, I pity you.

What I Like: In general, the coloring pleases me. And although the linework isn't my best, Im satisfied.

What i dont Like: I went over-board with the shirt-wrinkling >D Hahah. And I got a "background-block" so I just painted a bunch of clouds on the wall ^^

And no, the "boobie" was not intentional, its just the position. If you look REALLY hard, you can see the upper curve of the other "boobie"

~Kitti-chan
For those of you who dont know already, this is Fae. (Eternal_Fae)
And If you DO play, My character is Kitsuchi on the Asura server.

Awww, this is soo sweet. She looks so calm and at ease. The fabric strains on the pillow are done really well.

darkrose @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 9:02 PM
This is really quite good, especially her arm, I think. The shading on that and the shape are quite pleasing. She appears to only have one breast through, something there looks not quite right. Is this done or not? It looks like it's done, but the comment at the beginning seems to suggest otherwise. Either way, it's a good start and there are definitely things I like.

KHatch @ Thursday, January 20th 2005, 10:33 PM
The shading is very nice and rich in this piece, but the BG is sad and empty. I love her arm behind her head, and yeah, she does appear to have only one boob. Intentional or undone? Nice anyway.

Kaede @ Saturday, January 22nd 2005, 12:56 AM
I like the coloring it is awesome, nad her face is so cute. Her ears are adorable too. I just want to pinch her cheeks

My, you really have improved within the past year. Your figures are becoming more life like and are beginning to grow characters of their own. This is really a beautiful image. I really like the woody red colors in this and the sage green eyes that compliment it. The art on her chest is simple but very original and unique all in it's own way. I'm getting proud of you kiddo ^_^. As for a tad bit of cc, clean up your line art in some places. That's about it, can't wait to see some more images produced by you.

oh very pretty :D I love all the red! Red is such an awesome color, I must say. Cool little tatoo(?) on her chest too....kinda reminds me of a snake of sorts. Is it significant in her history or something?

Verna_Venisa @ Tuesday, January 11th 2005, 7:57 PM
Thanks for the comments everyone ^^... this character is brand new, but i was thinking about making a redheaded elf a few days ago. The tatoo i dunno about. I pretty much just drew it because i didn't fell like putting in the effort to make a necklace and her neck looked bare, but 1/2-way through drawing it i decided to possibly represent the 4 elements (hence the colors). Mabye she could be a mage of sorts? ^_^ We'll see

Carbuncle @ Wednesday, January 12th 2005, 12:43 AM

yeah! Elves rock my socks too. This is a very cool piece. I like the shine in the eyes and the red color palette, very passionate. The eyes may be a little high...The earings are awesome and the skin tones and shadows are very good.

catboi incubus mishi @ Saturday, January 15th 2005, 3:54 PM
Welcome to the board! :3 This is a pretty elf. Something about her face seems odd to me, I think it might be how she's slightly cross-eyed. Also, I think her nose could use a bit more definition, since it seems you're going for a slightly more realistic than cartoonish look. I think, for her collarbone, you could have used just watercolors to make it less harsh. Same goes for the tattoo - it looks more like it was drawn on with Sharpie than tattooed, I think if you smoothed the edges with watercolor is would look more realistic. Just one more thing, I promise, and then I'm done - the curve in her hair at the top of her head seems to go out a little much. :o Anyway, I'm a fan of reds and silvers, so I'm digging her outfit. x) Again, welcome to Drowkaki!

Kaede @ Sunday, January 16th 2005, 2:52 AM
Hi, welcome to the board. -waves-

I personally like the nose, and the hair is very nice. I really like her bang.

Hoorah for being new here. I'm hoping that I saved the image the right way. She's my charicature of sorts, name of Kayen, and she is *completely* out of character herself. Normally, she'd be holding a staff/scythe combo and be in tribal wear. Not snowboarding gear. That's *my* forte.

Adult 'cause I'm not done.

Any ideas for clothes and background are entirely welcome, 'cause I suck at both.

Tigerhawk @ Wednesday, January 19th 2005, 5:40 AM
For clothing I'd give her one of those fur collared jackets and thick pants (how vage can I get?). Background I'd go for a snowy mountain on fire.....and people running all over the place.....I really don't know... I do...I....have issues on saying I don't....ya. Hope that helps a bit ^^;;;

Ah, but does Argpoodle feel more for the drow than he lets on?

This is a very interesting image. The snake suggest something sinister has happened, the clean lines and colors work well. I just gotta say I like the simplicity of this.

darkrose @ Wednesday, January 12th 2005, 6:27 AM
"Search goods built eighteen to nineteen-thirties to the schalchten of the butcher"? Can't find that "schalchten" word anywhere, but I can't understand German worth a lick. I can speak it (as in pronounciations) because of a singer's training (by the by, Richard Strauss writes REALLY ANNOYING WORKS) and I happened to have my German dictionary open in front of me while I was perusing the site. So, interesting caption, what's it mean? Obviously the image is dark, with the red eye and snake (which looks totally cool, btw) and the overabundance of, well, black. Still, am interested in knowing what the saying means...

Kaede @ Wednesday, January 12th 2005, 11:10 PM
"Looking for a well-built eighteen to thirty-year-old to be slaughtered. The Master Butcher. "
Its from the song Mein Teil by Rammstein. I was listening to it while drawing this and it reminded me of shinzen, that line anyway. =0

catboi incubus mishi @ Saturday, January 15th 2005, 4:13 PM
Neat image, but I have to say - the chain really takes away from the image, I wish you had taken more time on it, it would have brought a lot to the image. ANYWAY. Because of the kimono sleeves, the snake seems to be more of an obi than an actual snake. You probably could have used some shine on it to make it more three-dimensional. Also, I wish you had put a little color in the elf's/man's/whateverheis's face and hand, or in the white of the kimono itself, to distinguish between the two. With the way the face is tilted, I think the eye might need to be a little teeny bit lower. But anyway, nice idea for an image, I always like your work. ^^

Kage Kitsune @ Monday, January 17th 2005, 2:00 PM
kreepy german and ebil snaky thing O_O;; I like his clothes and the snake kind of looks like a belt to hold up his hakama(sp?). The chain bugs me because it doesn't really look like a chain much, just some kind of metallic winedy thingy O_o; other than that tis pretty cool!

Four good reasons why Argpoodle should not be allowed to lead, be in charge, or decide ANYTHING. All four events happened in my game and the bottom two panels both occured last night, about half an hour apart. He died in each of these situations, and the first, third, and fourth times, I was able to heal him with my clericy goodness, but the second time, he was DEAD dead, and I used divine intervention to bring him back. Woohoo for necromancy!
Yay for idiot gnomes!
EDIT: The notes pinned to 'Poodley's chest say, in order, \"You can't see me\" and \"I'm not the gnome you're looking for.\"
He was being invisible. Or something. Yeah.

*Snerk.* Oh, man, this reminds me of when my friends and I role-play tabletop. This seems quite...similiar, in some ways. Brilliant art as usual, so very comicy and hilarious. Argpoodle is the coolest gnome EVER. Your Drow looks so cute in the first panel, too, her big eyes and expression just transmits surprise perfectly.

darkrose @ Sunday, January 9th 2005, 7:57 PM
That is the coolest thing EVER! Heh, my figther character was nominated to be party leader because he was the only one that no one despised. He's fifteen and still has to learn the ropes of being a good leader. Although in his eagerness to learn the diplomacy and tact to be a truly great leader he somehow ended up with a natural 24 CHA... woops. Ah, well, mobbage here we come. Anyway, he did some of these things. The whole 'ok, here's my rational---ERKG" thing, and the flame doors too. After the first couple tries we found an ingenious method of unlocking the door, then tying a rope to the handle in such a way that it would open when pulled a certain way, then we pulled really fast and ducked down around the corner, allowing us to escape the flaming death. Whee! Your gaming group looks like so much fun...

Kage Kitsune @ Sunday, January 9th 2005, 9:55 PM
oh gods...::smacks head against table she's laughing so hard:: your group sounds so much like my old one XD!!! I love how Argpoodle really looks like your boyfriend (basing this off your avi).

One of the Sensei's from my dojo came up to visit for promotions in on December 11, today when we were talking in AIM he told me he had sent me an e-mail, I opened said e-mail and he asked me if he could name me Shiro hana which means White blossom. Apparently it is the rarest and most beautiful blossom ever and blooms for a very long time...and Hana also happens to be my name in japanese ( hannah = hana ). I've never really like my name in japanese because it ment blossom...because I never have felt like one. But when he asked me to accept the name I was glad and sen thim an e-mail back telling him I would gladly except it as my name. This picture is for Sensei Shihan Alamo, my namer, I hope he outlives his hereditary heart condition.

I have to agree with darkrose, it's not fantasy, but that's such a sweet story. (: I love the little flowers, and how the girl caught one. :] I think the text would have been more legible if you had used either a darker or lighter shade of the purply/blue. I hope your sensei gets better!

ehhhehehe well meh friend Chloe is doing a report on the Lord of the Rings so I drew this for her visuals... so don't kill me...*^_^*

darkrose @ Monday, January 10th 2005, 7:09 AM
who'd kill you? I likes it. Good job with the script... and you definitely tried to get a good shine on it. I think you might work some more on the lighting of metal, which is tricky and it behaves in a very wierd way. Still, beautiful detail in the writing and the little red shine across the front...

Starisan @ Monday, January 10th 2005, 1:01 PM
Hey that's cool. I like the evil aura resonating from it. The coloring is good to, I think that the softer lines give it more depth then harder ones would.

Verna_Venisa @ Tuesday, January 11th 2005, 12:42 AM
*o* shiny....... *reaches for ring* this is really nice, i like the swirly-aura effect, the only thing i have to say bad about it is that you may want to be a little neater with your coloring (well, unless you were going for that effect) ^_^. Very pretty

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 11th 2005, 6:40 AM
Nice job, I think. The writing is very pretty. I also like how it seems to be glowing. Yay for LotR!

This pic is in anticipation of the third movie. I just bought the second and thought i would read up on the next one. Which by FAR sounds the best. I wont spoil anything but i will say that there is supposed to be a little bit about the past in the movie. Hence the pic. I found two great sites for images so if anyone wants them just ask.

Starisan @ Wednesday, January 12th 2005, 1:44 AM
wah! suspense. Now to the art. I really like it, the position is one that isn't used a lot so it's fresh. I agree, the back is done very well and the shadow under the ponytail is really good too. OOO and the shoulder pad thingys (sorry don't know what to call them), they are awsome because they are so dramatic. great job as usual.

Kage Kitsune @ Wednesday, January 12th 2005, 1:58 AM

But i prefir the "lord of dogs site" more (2nd one listed). Really pretty pics. Amazingly i though they were better then the "official IY site" ones. They are generally bigger and have a better focas. so YEA!!!!!!!!

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..

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:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I eventually had to go through and redo the purple by hand, but then I had some lines left to go by... if it's all black I don't know what to do about trying to fix it. Maybe you could take a screenshot and finish it in another program? Or something?

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

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

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

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

Sephie Strife @ Wednesday, December 29th 2004, 10:19 PM

I really like those bushes in the background, too! X3 Great job, that pic is awesome!!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

i like the hair. its very neon-ish. the black wings are neat. And the clothing and body are nicly drawn and highlighted. and shaded. Though i thnk more shading is in order because its night.

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

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

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

All-in-all great picture =)

Darkrose @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 7:17 AM
hmm... interesting... so the blonde one is a vampire and the red-haired one is about to become dinner? Heheh... Nice shading on his thigh there, I'd think that gloss effect would be other places too, like his shoulder and cheeks... other than that, great use of shading and the action pannels really tell a story. The position of the characters is a litle... awkward... for my tastes. But then again, I've never been a big fan of yaoi. Still nicely done, though!

Skittles-chan @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 9:09 AM
Hmm vampires ^-^; The one thing that keeps distracting me is the random tan bits that I know are parts belonging to the blond one, but I cant figure out what parts they are, or what position would ever allow him to bend in that way. Also, the shading on the - sheets, I'm assuming - is different from that of what's on the flesh, and sometimes it's good to stay consistant with a style in a piece unless there's an effect you're trying to pull off. Also, the background is a little blank. If they're in a bedroom, there would be something around them, a nightstand or pictures or something of the sort.
Anyhow, I really like the shading and highlights on the hair, and I like the way you draw eyes. Also, the vampire's teeth look pretty cool in that small panel on the left ^^

Rigga Mortis @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 7:22 PM
Ah, vampires...nice facial-shapes. The mouth of the red-haired one, and his eyebrow, look a little strange, but nothing too bad. I like how the blonde one is just peeking out from behind. X3 The blankets have some good folding and shading, and the highlihts on their skin is perfect.

ChronosKit @ Thursday, December 30th 2004, 11:13 PM

That is creative and beautiful at the same time. :3 Lovely details to the tree-tops and stream, and those puffy-soft clouds! Onto the angel girl herself, she has such a cuuuute expression. I've always admired the way you do faces, and this is no exception. The lips, the eyes, the nose---it's all perfect. That colourful wing-belt is an awesome detail. This is wonderful.

She reminds me of Rainbow Brite! :3 I love the colors- They're gorgeous. The wing on her belt(?) is extremely eyecatching and bright. I love the way, as well, that the hair is sort of spiralling down towards the earth at the top of the picture. (I'm assuming that was the intended effect, but of course it could just be the narrowing of her hair at the end. ^_^;;) The shading is nice- Very soft. and the background is done really nicely! Great picture! Bravo!

windblade @ Friday, December 31st 2004, 10:29 PM

This is gorgeous!!! The rainbow in the upper-right corner (how it looks so solid, yet so bright) and the winged underwear are my favourite pieces of this picture.

Awesome job! -thumbs up!-

Yeah! I love this one. Not only does it have great detail but it has wonderful colors. It reminds me of Iris, the greek goddess of the rainbow. She has a beautiful face and lovely bangs. I think the perspective as the hair goes down is very good. I like unique angles like this. The feathures on her skirt(?) are great. The eyes are also very well done.

Ooh, I remember the original for this character on the board before the worm hit. I have to say, going about the coloring of the background as you did...well that's damn creative. The end of her rainbow hair bestowing color to an other wise greyscale world. Very nice. Everything about her is just surreal looking in comparison. For instance, the other clouds are bland and grey, while the ones that come into contact with either her or her hair are a little more 'fluffy' looking, and have that awesome blue shading to them. Very nice. The thicker lines as an outlining of sorts...well that's personally one of my favorite things about this piece. But the perspective certainly doesn't hurt. Now to the figure herself. First of all...I LOVE THAT YOU ALWAYS SHOW LIPS!!! lol The smile she's got just seems to fit her. The purples in her shirt show just awesome depth. VERY nice. There is however one thing that bothers me. It's the wings at her waist. The way the rainbow feathers are shaded makes them look round. It seems there are a few light sources on them as well. Other than that, I really like this piece. You've got some talent with the colors let me just say that. lol Awesome piece for the secret santa...well, I'm going to call it "project".

Chime @ Wednesday, January 12th 2005, 6:13 PM
Tha~ank you so much Godzilla ^o^
I love it, its so colorful and boo~otiful *^*
Like everyone else, I love the way the "rainbow" is coloring the world. I love what you did with the hair, I never even thought of that when I drew her the first time ^________^
I especially like the way you colored the whole picture. The shading is light and realistic, in my eyes. The linework, also, is fabulous.

Thanks soooooo much!!!

And for those of you who havent already realized, this is Fae >B

Ok yeah, this is crud, so many things wronggg with it. And this time it isnt my imagination, I just know it. I guess I should expect since im trying to mold a final style. Ive been through so many its drving me crazy and I just want to make a style and stick with it. v_v -waves benji around- evil pictureee.

Crest @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 8:35 PM
The face is so great to look at. Love how you drew the eyes and the expression is so nice. I think the drawing looks cool. Definitely like the hair. XD And that loose strand.

darkrose @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 10:37 PM
Ooh, I like a lot. Lovely detail with the strands of hair and the stitches on her kimono. I also like what you've done in the background with the stars, all the little glowy bits around the star look really nice. The things in the background are a little distracting, so much is done so cleanly and so beautifully that the watercolor creatures don't seem to fit. That's really the only thing I can think of that could improve this picture, except maybe some more work on fabric folds, but that's really quite good anyway.

AoD @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 3:42 AM
I've never been much of a Kikyou fan but something out this picture makes me like her a little. The way you drew her gave her a sense of sensitivity.. Not that usuall look that makes me want to slap her.. I love you for drawing the soul steaking demons too! ^.^ love this.

Sumi @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 5:10 AM
It's okay Kaede. Styles take time to get. I still don't have mine after 4 years, and I don't expect one to come to me soon. XD
I like the composition of your picture and how you captured the almost-sad-almost-mad ish look she almost always has. The soul stealers were also a nice touch. (I always forget about them for some reason. O.o;)

Lady_Sea @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 9:05 PM
It can be quite a depressing journey when searching for your style, but do not worry. You'll find it soon. Think of style as your own normal way of drawing and expressing yourself. It's just a matter of making it grow to really truly appreciate it. I think your journey is being reflected in this picture of Kikyo. She has this sense of distress or searching look in her eyes. Like she really doesn't know where to begin. As for commenting, I really like the clothing and hair. It's very neat and the shading as well too. The background doesn't distract from the character too much, but I'm sure if you put a little more work into, it would be top notch. Keep searching, you'll find your style eventually. ^_^

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 11th 2005, 6:47 AM

Darkrose @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 5:59 AM
ooh, too cool. I really love the concept of this picture, and the black dress/white hair is strikingly beautiful, as well as the white dress/black hair. Also the use of differing skin tones was a nice touch. The poses are lovely and the expressions (calm, serene) are good too.

Kamourian King @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 11:51 AM
the hair is really well drawen and i love the dresses... ^^

Kaiera @ Monday, January 3rd 2005, 10:24 PM
"Opposite" pics always interested me quite a bit :) I like how even their skin tones are contrasted....really gives that opposite feel. The bg seems a bit rushed though o.o Maybe using different colors for each side, such as light blue for the "light" and purple for the "dark, would make it a little less bland. Personally, I like color in the bg :D Aside from that though, I like this image alot ^_^

KHatch @ Tuesday, January 4th 2005, 8:07 PM
This is nice. I like the dress design, and the colour scheme. I tried this idea once, but did not pull it off as well as you. The grey background is like a blending of the stark opposites. It brings the piece together well. Nice job!

celestial crou @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 4:39 AM
Wow. i enjoy looking at opposites. so all is well. I the black dress woman has a sephy hairstyle. the shading and highlighting are added with a light touch. The dresses are very creative. One sleve skin tight and has fasionable holes and the other is like most of the stuf i wear. Long open and bell shaped. The skin colors of the woman are unique in the way that i dont see many opp pics go as far as opp skin color. A very nice touch. my onely prob is the BG. I dont like the face that the women have "auras". Though for this pic perhaps it was ment to be that way?

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 6:56 PM
I love the simple, elegant gowns. Everything about these two is elegant! I love the skin tone of the elf on the right contrasting with her beautiful black hair.

An amazing piece! ^_^

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 7:04 PM
That was so neat to see how you did this! A few questions for you though:

1) How do you colour like that? You used solids over the lines, and then erased... at least that's how it appeared in the annimation. How did you know where to erase? Really neat way of colouring, by the way.

2) How did you blur things? I've never seen anything like a blur tool with the oekaki program I've been using (the middle one).

Again, a very lovely picture!

Kaede @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 10:44 PM
I really love the concept and the hair. The profiles are cute too, and I like the shading on the black dress.

Ok well, Im on an artist block I can already tell because Ive been.. not sending pictures ive been drawing because a few moments of looking at them and I hate them. But not this one.

I find myself really into Kikyou's character all of a sudden. I didnt like her at all at first, I was basically just wishing she would die and let Inuyasha be, towards the middle of last year I found myself liking her more and more and thats because I took the time to understand her character, and absorb her emotion. She is a character with..... alot of emotion, and I love drawing her. I love trying to bring out that emotion, gathering up all mine and just putting it into pictures of her. She is truely a beautiful character to me now, now that I understand her more. Which is why I sent this. The art stinks, but I hope I managed to capture some of her emotion, even if its just a hair of it. I wish I drew this smaller with inuyasha somewhere like behind her. Ohhhh well. Ill do that later. ^^

Sorry for the crappiness. x.x;

celestial crou @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 11:03 AM
Kikyo huh? Well its got her persona thats for sure. Its all in the eye.

I thnk your dislike is all because this pic is a of a closeup. There really isnt anything that creates an intrest above anything else. The pic is in all neutral colors except for purple. Which is actually taking your eye away from the focal point. assuming the focal point is the eye of course.

Perhaps if you captured a little bit more of the face you might be happier with it?

And what happened to the one pic that looked like fluffy? Nothing looked wrong from the lineart. I thnk your judging yourself too harshly and depriving us of your beutiful works.

Starisan @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 3:35 PM
To be honest, I don't think this is crappy at all. It seems very intense to me, I like the simplicity it can be a refreshing change. I like the purple in the corner, it more interest to the piece. Maybe you incorporate a little more of it, it's quite a rich color. Cheers, you love what you love. Beautiful

oni shi @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 5:51 PM
mmmm i like the lineartlessness(made new word yay) this is very soft, i noticed right away that it was kikyo, to be honest i never liked her eather but slowly i am comeing around hehe, i like how u picked purple for the back color adds a nice contrast.
sometimes just draeing till u like something gets rid of the block :)
ooo also in the bottom corner there seems to be much skin

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 7:19 PM
The blur of the tear helps to make it more real. This picture has a lot of emotion in it. Nice eye... Oddly close-up, though.

darkrose @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 9:18 PM
Yes, it's s very dark picture. Dark in that deep, emotional way, not that literal darkness (although that too, I suppose). I love the eye, it really brings the focus to it. Is she crying? I can't quite tell... but then I can NEVER make characters look like they're crying, I always have to find a way around it.

Lady_Sea @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 10:16 PM
This picture itself contains alot of emotion that was bottled up. The eye for instance has that sadness in it that is finally releasing tears needed to be shed. I find alot of emotion in this, but I agree with a few of the others. Maybe is a little more of the face was shown, maybe a bit more of emotion could have successfully been captured? Lovely work overall.

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.

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?

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! ^^

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

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*

Interesting... the sloppy lines and colroful shading are reall quite cool. I like it. The hair is nifty, too... I'm not sure, but it's almost like there are different styles of coloring and drawing actually within this piece. It's rather, well, cool... hard to say it otherwise. It's interesting in a good way.

YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Starisan drawing! You seem to have kept your drawing style dispite using a mouse. The 'sketchyness' (cant remember what our prof. called it) in the pants shows off all the creases. My favorite part is the hair in this one. I love the different tones and lines used. ok i lied. i love the eye too. Their tied as favorites. The eye is just awsome. You did a fantastic job detailing it dispite its small size.

catboi incubus mishi @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 4:33 AM
Now, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this isn't fantasy - I noticed in your comment that you're not finished, I certainly hope you add in a fantasy element. The sloppiness of her back and leg area bother me, though, perhaps you can go back and clean them up. I do love her hair and the detail you put into the way it's up in the barrette. (:

Totenmaske @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 6:31 AM
Well I personally like the style I have been seeing in the images you have tried to post (even though I gave you a warning ? I personally see a lot of talent in your work) certainly at the moment there is no fantasy ? but I believe you will work that into the image. To be truthful, and this is going to sound rather odd, but this character reminds me of ?The Woman Wrapped in the Sun? in a few of the images by William Blake. Rather odd to suggest that, especially since the image is not completed yet ? but it has style and well I think oddly? ;3

But anyway I personally like what I see, even though there is a sense of ?sloppiness,? in the colouring and well maybe in the slope of the back (though I don?t think it really is that bad, personally I was expecting you to bring out some wings from the back). Now on the subject of using a mouse, it is hard to get used to at first, there are though quite a few artists on the board and other places that use the mouse exclusively. So don?t think it as a crutch, you just have to work at it and over time you will improve. I like the quick pose dolls you make btw that I see in animation.

There are some issues that you may want to do though ? like clean up some of the rough loose line art and colouring. But so far I like the odd style that this is presenting so far. Keep working on this image! I will comment further once this is completed.

oni shi @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 6:05 PM
i like the wings, its hard to use a mouse it takes more time but if u are carefull with the line art then its much easyer to do, i know i used a mouse for a ver long time and finally got a tabby a year or two ago

AnimeCanuck @ Thursday, January 6th 2005, 7:10 PM
I like this, especially her cheek. I can feel the emotion coming from this, but for some reason it's not exactly EMINATING from it.

Getting used to drawing with a mouse... did you used to have a tablet? What happened to it?

This is a bittersweet picture... Very nice.

Starisan @ Friday, January 7th 2005, 1:33 PM
UUmmm, thanks for all the comments. No I've never had a tablet, I meant in general because this is my first expirience drawing with the mouse, although I got some practice because my first attempts to post here were accidentially deleted (my computer wouldn't save them...and then i accidentally spammed so I deleted those).

Starisan @ Saturday, January 8th 2005, 4:39 PM
well, first drawing done. Pretty happy, I agree that there isdefinately some sloppyniess I need to work on but overall I think I'm gonna like using the mouse once I get used to it.

What is on the end of his hat, you ask? It is a COWPIG!! A mysterious cross between a cow and a pig. Yeah so it looks like a cow, mianly, but who cares.
There ya go, Darkrose XD

Totenmaske @ Wednesday, January 5th 2005, 7:09 AM
I really love the wonderful colouring in these images KHatch, and frankly the characters are superb. The fact that you had to explain Argpoodle and his hat just seems over the top ? but funny nonetheless. I personally love the cowpig? but that?s mostly because it looks too cute in that over the top tacky way.

The colouring in this image is just amazing, I love what you do with the background in particularly for each cell, and it is simplistic in presentation but so pleasing to look at. Especially in the frame with the hat, the way the hat seems to be radiating. The hat is very nicely textured through the wonderful colouring job not to mention the sense of lighting and definition of Argpoodle himself. The only issue I have, in the colouring department is the odd little circle of yellow, I don?t know if that is a mistake or simply something you wanted to explain in another image ;3 {Edit} Ahh you corrected it, nm then this image is simply a joy to look at now! I like the fact that Argpoodle himself is a little odd in the sense that he has a green and blue eye. Frankly the colouring is fantastic, that?s the best description I could apply to the image overall. It?s thick and playful, and that really carries the image.

The cowpig, well that just seems to be the whole focus of the image in the end, and something that reminds me of Gir?s little buddy Pig in Invader Zim? The things I apply to images astound me? so if there is no real link, just chalk it up to me being just plain freaky. Those eyes, and the little bells? for some reason, when I first saw Argpoodle?s hat I wanted to ask if those were utters or something? I think it?s a little more disturbing that they are bells?

Btw the way you wrote the text in this image, is fantastic, I like the way you have lightened the area behind the writing to help the viewer of the image see what you wrote. Even though I think your writing is very legible, that little addition is welcoming. Just a fantastic image KHatch and I do hope to see more of him, like your Merry Christmas image, this is just adorable.

Anyway, yeah this is awesome. I really do love the way you drew his hat, and of coarse, as usual your coloring rocks!
