It's finally done! I'm so happy how the shading came out, this is one of my best compare to how I shaded in the past, which are so bad they don't deserve to be on here to spare you the pain. Well here's my OC for Bakugan hope you enjoy.
Personality: Miu is your typical anti-social cool girl or that’s what she wants you think, but she gets really embarrass when someone breaks down that wall and will try to cover up what they accomplish as she go into a little fit or avoid it like the plague. As for her true self she’s really quite a sly trickster. Always causing chaos and mayhem to others and then feign innocent, but if you’re good friends with her she’ll let you off the hook from her list. Well except for the occasional teasing every now and then. Miu does have a tiny little flaw though…. She’s Androphobic (aka fear of men) If any male goes closer than a feet around her then her reflex will kick into action and cause her to give them a K.O. sucker punch and her being a martial artist doesn’t help them either.
Bio: Just like how most brawlers out there know the Battle Brawlers, Miu met them through the bakugan site. Miu had always adored the bakugan game ever since it was created and treated her bakugans with care, even before she realize they were real. One thing that usual ticks her off though was how Masquerade was the top darkus brawler and vow to become better then him. Sadly that never happen, but she did manage to earn a place in the high rankings with other darkus brawlers.
When Naga had entered the human world, Miu was one of the many brawlers that try to stop Naga’s forces. Once the Battle Brawlers defeat Naga and all the bagukan return back into their world, Miu and the other people soon return to their normal lives.
That is till one day while taking a shortcut through the park home a portal to New Vestroia open underneath her and she fell into it. Unfortunately the portal had dropped her off somewhere high off the ground and Miu brace for impact as she fell. Luckily there was a certain pair of people that just so happen to be passing by, Spectra and Gus. Gus managed to catch her before she hit the ground surprisingly but when Miu notice she wasn’t hurt she opens her eyes and saw them. Next thing you know BAM!! Miu knocks Gus right out, then was fill with regret once she realize that she just knocked out her savior. Nervous of what they would say Miu ran off while apologizing.
After running for a while Miu stop and took a look around her surrounding and notice that she was in an entirely new place. Trying her best to act natural so not to draw attention to herself, she wanders around this strange new city. Later she had found out that the people around here are called Vestals and that she was on New Vestroia. When she saw how the people treated the bakugans here it reminded her how it was similar to back then.
Miu decided to leave the city in search any bakugans that could tell her the whole story on what happen to this world. That was when she met darkus Akasha and aquos Kaisui (made up) in a secluded part of a forest. Akasha didn’t trust Miu at first, but after much convincing from Kaisui they gave her a chance and explain to her how the Vestals had invaded their home and made bakugans helpless with their machine. Miu then promise that with the help of them, she’ll get to the bottom of this and free them, and what better way to get to the bottom is from the top. So she must make a name for her to earn the connections she’s going to need.
That’s how she began to start competing in tournaments and gather attention for herself. During one of the tournaments she was in, she was against one of the Vexos, Volt, it was a even match with either side capable of winning, that’s when Miu pulled of one last trick up her sleeve that ended with her winning. This sparked Spectra’s interest and challenged her to an unofficial match. Ultimately she lose the battle, but not enough to lose her bakugans. Seeing potential, Spectra offer her a place in the team, thinking that it's better to make a strong ally then a strong enemy. Knowing how the Vexos are the top players and have good connections, Miu accepted his offer in hopes of freeing the bakugans.
After coming back to their base and meeting up with the rest of the Vexos, they put Miu into training their way of bakugan brawling. She got the hang of it after awhile and started to show some improvements. Of course ever since the others heard of the incident with Gus, the guys made sure they didn’t come too close to her. Only one guy that was insane enough to still stick by Miu was Shadow. This sometime causes him to earn a sucker punch once in awhile, but that still didn’t discourage him for some odd reason. So other than him this would leave Miu with only Mylene to hang with, though they were in neutral terms so nothing much happen between them. There are time when Miu will use aquos bakugan to try and one up Mylene though.
OMFG, it’s done! I drew this, like, when? October 12, 2010? It was originally for Halloween, and I was so estatic that I got it drawn in time. But then… here it is, November, almost Thanksgiving, and the finished product wasn’t uploaded until now. Keh heh heh, I was just procrastinating this because I didn’t want to deal with the difficult lighting, but eventually I just had to kick myself in the butt and do it (and I think it looks really good!)
So… Belated Halloween Picture. And… uh… well, it’s a pumpkin, so let’s just say that Ion’s bringing the pumpkin (pie) to Thanksgiving. So, yey, it’s a dual photo!
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.
*dusts off DA gallery* Okay so it's been YEARS since the last time I posted. I doubt anyone remembers me haha. I'm not quite back yet anyway, will do so after the end of November.
Earlier this year I revisited my OC Reyna. She was one of my oldest OC ways back from 2004. The extreme lack of details and the ugliness of my old drawings are just too painful for my eyes.
I revamped her background story too because the old one was too stupid. She is now 18 years old, a mercenary, and pretty down to earth except for one little obsession she had since she was a kid. Reyna is sarcastic, blunt and sometimes overly confident, which usually bring more trouble than good. She has a boyfriend, a fellow mercenary named Gert who miraculously able to put up with her antics so far.
…I don't get why some people say my character designs are detailed. In fact, now that I look at Reyna's new design again, I can see some room for even more details
I finally did it! I finally broke down and created an OC for myself. Her name is Celeste Nayamashii. Celeste pretty much embodies my serious/quiet side. She's serious to a fault and rarely smiles, hardly shows any emotions ever unless she's pissed, she's quiet unless spoken to and she'll kick your ass if you provoke her. She's not a 'Sue' and doesn't have big angel wings or random magical powers either, but she does have a secret and she's half-vampire but does not know it. She's just skilled in combat but behind the scenes she is very feminine. She's only close to those she loves and it's hard for her to learn to trust anyone. So yeah, here's Celeste. I'll probably draw more of her later on ^_^ Enjoy!
