The old spirit glanced down to the churring water below him while his 'Mistress' (he often used that term loosely) absently scratched her head. "Any particular ideas on where we are to go?"
"HAHAHAHA! OF COURSE! Um. Uh." She pauses, then started giggling again. "Maybe we should go that way!"
He simply sighed. She was water-melding again without realizing it, apparently. "Next time, Mizu-chan, do not ask directions from perverted toad hermits that are more interested in your garters."
My submission for the Create a Nin contest. Here's her description.
This scatterbrained female ninja is very short and has a wasp-waisted build. Her hooded eyes are emerald. She has curly, shoulder-length, mauve hair worn in a precise style. Her outfits are sexy and include a set of shinguards. Her preferred weapon is a sword (which has the soul of a great ninja inside of it). She is skilled in impersonation and breakfall. She can pass through and merge with water.
I'll refrain from artistic commentary, for it will run along the lines of OMG THIS SUCKS, but way more articulate.
Most imaginative title ever.
My entry for *The-Z's random ninja contest. Basically you just grab a description from a generator and then try to draw it.
Here's what I got: This opinionated female ninja is very short and has a muscular build. Her slanted eyes are green. She has straight, neck-length, gray hair. Her plain outfits are usually yellow and include a belt with many pouches. She uses a straightforward form of martial arts that emphasizes dodges. Her preferred weapon is a club. She is skilled in disguise. She can summon a dog-ghost.
What appealed to me in this description (okay, apart from the ghost-doggy, wiseguy) was its inconsistency. I mean, plain outfits, relatively short hair, straighforward... to me all that commnicates a no-nonsense tomboy-type personality, but yet she prefers wearing yellow. And her fighting technique emphasizes dodges, i.e. staying away from your opponent, but a club is very much a contact-weapon.
And with the doggy I took some major artistic liberties by basing him on a british ghost dog barghest. Don't ask me how he ended up in Japan, it just felt fitting. The kanji at the back is the pup's name, Gen'ei, meaning 'phantom', 'vision' or 'illusion'.
This was created for *The-Z's Create-a-Nin Super Ninja contest. Here was the description I got:
This elegant ninja is short and has a graceful build. His hooded eyes are teal. He has cherry red hair worn in an impractical style. His outfits are usually umber and include sandals. He uses an artistic form of martial arts that emphasizes dives. His preferred weapon is a knife (which is made out of human body parts). He is skilled in astronomy and gossip. He can summon and take on the traits of spider-ghosts.
This has been a really fun project that allowed me to think outside the box.
Ah, yes. I'm not dead yet! In fact, I may just go take a walk.
Monty Python references aside, it took a contest run by a friend of mine to get me to get the ol' wacom out n' draw. However, I decided to really go the distance here, which means that A. I focused a half a month over details and getting references, then realize that the background is wonky, and B. stuff's too stiff. It is an eternal battle, digital painting.
Alright. Here's the gist of the contest here: [link] Basically? You grab a random desc from the make-a-ninja generator, and draw that nin. As simple as that. My description is here:
This contemplative female ninja is tall and has an elegant build. She is missing her right arm. Her large eyes are pine-green. She has straight olive-green hair. Her severe outfits are usually gray and include a belt with many pouches. She uses an artistic form of martial arts that emphasizes duplicating the moves of one's opponent and using kicks. Her preferred weapon is a garotte. She is skilled in mimicry, astronomy, and climbing. She uses her weapon to produce shockwaves.
I'm not sure if I'll get any points for exact accuracy, but it's an actual background and a more realistic rendering style. However, I wasn't sure if it fit more in the fantasy category or the anime category, as there were some stylistic nuances that seem to lend themselves to anime, but I guess it's up for debate.
My lovely one-armed nin shall squat in the anime section for now. She may ninja away to the fantasy gallery later, however, if someone recommends it.
Finished portrait of Broken Star, my Twilight-exalted firegunner. Complete with omgLIGHTING, and like...stuff...
Hey, don't laugh, multiple light sources are hard for me. -_-
His cloak is a) not /that/ torn up, and b) charcoal colored, but as for 'a', I claim artistic license, and 'b', the picture looked far too damn gray without the color in it.
He's such a cocky, smug bastard. I love him.
(And yes, he scars silver. He's a god-blood.)
This opportunistic ninja is tall and has a lithe build.
His beady eyes are blue. He has straight, short, soot-black hair. His uncomplicated outfits are usually olive-green.
He uses a classic form of martial arts that emphasizes deceiving one's opponent.
He is skilled in poison-making, acrobatics, and negotiation.
His body has traits reminicent of a panther.
So, I made his outfit very uncomplex, not many buttons and holes and fashionable accessories. He does have a panther claw motif on his pant legs, his boots and on his bandana/dew-rag, that's about as flashy as it gets.
I really disliked the colors that were choosen, but I do think they fit well with the deception part (cameoflague!).
The claws on the end of his knuckles and fingernails are poisonous, and he keeps extras on one of his silver belts. The second silverbelt holds throwing needles; his arm guards also hold these poison-tipped needles as well.
His face is painted to accent his panther-like looks. His is the only black ninja (ningro? jk) so far I think to enter. The tail he carries is a trophy attached to his hip with the silver chain. He has purposely sharpened his teeth to look more intimidating. He keeps a trim diet to be flexible and stlk "prey" through the trees where he is light on his feet and keeps a steady grip with his hand and foot claws.
As far as negotiating, as you can see, he has one...with someone from Konoha village. Tsk-tsk should have listened to a crazy 7 ft tall black panther nin.
I included the bw art because I think my color ruined it. I also included the sketch where he is standing normally so you can see how simple his outfit is.
Yeah, I'm tired. Wish me luck! I worked hard on this- mostly out of respect of Z, a long time sempai.
One day in 2542AD, an intergalactic spaceship was travelling in space with fuel and food running out. They had to find a planet to land on. But the navigtor onboard the spaceship was a bit of an @$$h0I( , he landed the spaceship on a planet with weird sharp terrain, and the planet rotates so fast that its hills are bent, and the spaceship was damaged when it hit those hills, and they could take off the planet again. tehy were d00med! they all used bad words to scold the navigator . They were hoping against hope that some space ship would come and rescue them
P.s hope u likes the deviation as well as the story, btw, generating overhang is no big deal . I dont know why some software promotes their software using 'overhang capability' as something cool? Even terragen can render overhang, if at all anyone is interested I can tell u how to do it, but u will have to give me some time too
Entery for Seventh Sanctum Magical Girl/Knight contest ^^
Here's the description:
~This humorous magical girl's narrow eyes are the color of smoke. Her waist-length, straight, silky hair is the color of the evening sky, and is worn in an odd style. She has a very feminine build. She has avian powers that are invoked by concentration. Her uniform is black and red, looks like a fusion of a princess' royal outfit and a barbarian queen's leathers, and it includes a pair of wings.~
I named her Luyu, a name that suits her if you know it's meaning. I'm fairly happy with the background but wish I could have done more; but I'm running out of time. (It's been pretty nerve-racking today; lots of computer problems and paintshop crap =_= ) Hope you like.... I'm tired.
