....*sideways glance* ¬.¬ Don't tell anyone I was sneaking off to work on an oekaki when I was *supposed* to be writing my Book report....
Anyways, I felt like doodling for.. a bit. Then I started drawing lines. And more lines. It ended up as Kratos. Yes, our favorite red-haired seraphim. I wanted to make it a bit more hard-shaded then I usually did. But then it kinda started to get softer when I did the background ._.;
He's casting judgement.. if you noticed the pink feathers there.. O_o;

This drawing is pretty old (August 2002), but it's also one of my favorites up to date.
The characters are Alan Alvein (swordman), Carol Adnade (healer), Edward Morrison (mage) and Winona Bigford (Archer) from Tales of Phantasia . They're pretty much unknown if you've only played the game, as you only see them in the beginning.
This was done in Photoshop 5.5, using a mouse to both ink and color. I had a major cramp after the inking but I still had to endure for the coloring. It's one of my successful CGs and I'm overall happy with it. I would have had time to do a background if it weren't for the deadline of the contest, which I submitted on the last day. I was also working on another contest which had the same deadline.. so I was pretty stressed out. But boo, I won neither. I did get an "honorable mention" though.. so I guess it's better than nothing.
Becki actually posted two pictures in the same weekend?!
Actually, I don't have school today or tomorrow, so I quite a bit of time to catch up on my artwork. If you've seen my art journal recently, I have a lot of things to finish >_>; Most of them are almost complete, so you might even see something tomorrow.. *gasp!*
I've been working on this since I got the scanner.. almost a month now.. I think. I sketched this once when I was bored and it was the second sketch that I had scanned. Taking up The Trusty Gimp, I colored it.. unfortunetely, I hadn't inked the sketch and was too lazy to lineart it. So it looks really messy, and the background was rushed. Sheena's other arm looks too long.
Behold my terrible color coordination.
Um.. this is an example of a picture that looks better as a thumbnail. So.. please do not full view @.@;

I just recentely finished Tales of Symphonia on the GameCube. What an awesome game! Now I must draw fanart. XD I decided to go with Genis first; he was probably my most favourite under Kratos. Who will be next. Mmn, angels and elfies.
I tried a new coloring style with this one. Comments would be appreciated.
ANyways! I tried to put some background demo it got too messy! So i've uploaded this one... Their from Tales of Phantasia. To any of you who don't know it: the healer is Mint, the ninja is Suzu, the pink-haired elf is Arche , the guy at the back is the time of god and space Dhaos, the guy with blue hair is chester , the archer, and the character in the front is Cless!
This commission had some nice references, so I was able to get the details in without much troubles. XD Why can't all commissions turn out this way? Anyway, Rick (A mod at Ciel Network's forums) wanted me to draw up his X series fan character, Cressen. So, here it is. :3 Another piece I'm very pleased with, I spent around 5 hours on this one total.
Oop, another picture I started at camp, during FOB. It was humid when I drew this, so the paper warped and got all crinkly in one corner >_>;
This is one of my characters, the one I draw every time I want an excuse to draw hair O_o; I did draw her a long while ago along with Emyth and Aia, but I figured maybe I should post more pictures of her since I draw her so often ^o^;
Ah, since I did a character blog for all new characters I introduce individually to my gallery, I may as well do another
Race: Sari kanu
A friend of Emyth's ( [link] ) who is also the daughter of a well known and respected family. Her elder brother Aren is betrothed to the Princess, who plays an important role for the future of the dwindling race. Under the shadow of her brother's diplomatic and political influence, she tends to be drawn-back and more timid.
Ack, sorry I've been littering your inboxes lately with traditional junk, this is the last one for a while ;

I could sit here and do Mithos Yggdrassil's entire pre-and-post battle monologues, but I'll spare you, since if you've even seen a Gamecube before, you've probably beaten Tales of Symphonia(or at least played it).
Anyway, as improbable as it would be for a pack of adventurers to sit down and prepare an elaborate, delicious meal everytime they smote a pack of random wildlife, for maximum effect, the cooking system of Tales has to be observed during the interim in forms of a pivotal battle(like seen here...oh... and *SPOILERS* while we're at it)
