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.
This is an entry for a 'Random Ninja' art competition. You had to go and get a 'random ninja' from this one random generator site, and then do your interpretation of it. Here's mine...
This plucky ninja is very short and has a broad-shouldered build. He has a wide chin. His hooded eyes are lavender. He has charcoal-colored hair worn in a style that resembles a horse's mane. His outfit is in shades of blue. He uses an odd form of martial arts that emphasizes dodging one's opponent and using submission holds. His preferred weapon is a katana (which seems to be almost alive). He is skilled in comedy. He can teleport.
While I didn't show him actually teleporting (which would've been hard anyway), I figure that's how he managed to get behind his opponent, put him in that obviously uncomfortable elbow hold, and sit on him. The purpose? Why to tell him a joke, natch... those samurai never /do/ appreciate a good laugh, the grumpy bastards.
"...So /anyway/... a kitsune and an ogre walk into a bar..."
The extroverted male half-Hydra spy. He appears human - yet his shadow is always that of his non-human parent's species.
The calculating warrior. His aquamarine eyes can seduce you with a glance. His stylish hair is slate-gray. He has a rather youthful face. His outfits are tight, he has a preference for brown, and he has a thing for low-riding pants and leather boots.
He seems to me like one of those crazy fantasy RPG characters. Not the hero though, Ghost is that one guy that you meet at a suspiciously helpful time in some bar who hits on your wimmenz (but you still assume he's flaming), assaults the hero with good-natured barbs and by the time he gets around to revealing his halfsy heritage the hero can't but scream at him in frustration because if he'd revealed everything just a liiiiittle while earlier it would have saved everybody a ton of trouble.
And yeah, I'm pretty well aware that with the lighting angles I used, a shadow wouldn't really show up there
This is for 's contest in which participants are given a description via a randomizer (?) and then must draw the character being described...
What i got was:
"This secretive female ninja is very short and has an elegant build. Her wide eyes are red. She has curly orange hair. Her outfit includes a lot of belts. She uses a brutal form of martial arts that emphasizes breaking an opponent's bones. Her preferred weapon is a whip. She is skilled in breakfall and socializing. She can merge with rock."
Coming up with this character was quite fun. Challenges were inevitable specially when you only have to rely on a paragraph for reference.. XD My favorite thing about this character was the belt thingie.. i really brain stormed hard on how to make the belt not make the character a bondage uke. XD Also, the character's weapon can also serve as a belt and a bone breaking tool that can sometimes deflect kunai's.
The color wasn't really that hard for i relied on the last part of the description.. "...she can merge with rock..". So her color palette is based from the most simple rock/stone colors. (Which i hope i got right... )
I have already screwed up with another project... so poor Iwane was left to be rendered with flat colors T_T. But a re-color will be possible for this.. coz i love this piece all in all. There might be proportion problems.... but now i know better!
Hopefully this gets accepted... (Don't you just love one click sending via Note?.. )
"August 19, Today I asked around for a Demonologist; I was in need of one, having run into some horrid version of undead just the other day. The locals pointed me to a tiny shop in the back end of the town, scrunched somewhat comically between a bakery and a butcher shop. The owner of said store informed me that her name was Luisa Marsh, and that I would be perfectly fine calling her Lu, or Marsha. Lu was an interesting character, I recall her skin being of a somewhat greenish cast, and freckled. Of course, she kept the lights in her shop dimmed down; the only light came through a couple of dusty windows, so I couldn't really be sure what her skin color was. She had a book open when I walked in, and had all manner of volumes stacked up on her desk - one, I noticed, had a title in an alphabet I'd never seen before. When I asked her if she had any books on the particular type of demon I had run into, she responded with, 'Let's go for a ride, shall we?' We proceeded to pull books off of shelves, put them back, and eventually got to some that contained something like I had described. As she moved around, I could tell that her hair was damp, somehow, and her gait was odd; it was as if her legs were too long. When I asked her about it, she proceeded to ignore me. Leaving, I wondered idly at the name of her shop: 'The Kelpie's Library.' Note to self: look up half-breeds the next time I run into her."
This is my for fun entry for Seventh Sanctum's Fantasy Fusion contest. The prompt was to run the Fantasy Crossbreed generator, and make something to do with the result. I got this: "The cunning, friendly female half-Kelpie demonologist. Her wardrobe is utilitarian. She appears human - but those who interact with her keep getting the impression that she isn't human."
I think I got it pretty close. I used the Kelpie from Arthur Spiderwick's field guide as a reference.
Ok, I've been meaning to make my Naruto character's neew outfit for a long while now since in the manga everyone has new outfits. Why? It's simple really... it's 3 years later in the manga. ^_^ Well, it has been for a long time now. So everyone's about... 15-16 years old now. Except Rock Lee's team who's about 16-17 years old and Gaara's team's about 17-18 years old.
My character's a year younger than her nii-san (Kiba), so she's somewhere around 14-15 years old. Maybe 16, I dunno... Before it was 3 years later, everyone was about 13 years old, so I'm still calculating ages. You may notice her hair's a bit longer too; eventually her hair will be long an in a ponytail like her older sister. ^^
Koya's new outfit is awesome and I like it. It seems as if everyone is getting into black clothing or dark clothing. I noticed a lot of the characters have black outfits and more fish nets on them. Plus, Akamaru is HUGE!! Instead of him riding on Kiba's head, Kiba's riding on Akamaru like a horse. So Koya's dog Haiiromaru's about the same size as Akamaru.
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.
This is an entry for the Characters - Extreme! contest for Seventh Sanctum [link]
So let me introduce you to Chaos Sunrise: This gentleman has droopy blood-red eyes. He has neck-length, straight, royal purple hair which has a form that reminds you of a pair of wings. His body is rather sleek. You can't help but compare him to a cobra waiting to strike. He has prominent cheekbones. (bishotron) This sword's guard is arc-shaped. Its grip is formed like a chimney with smoke coming out of it. (sword generator) Purple Pendant of Muteness and Charisma. Spirit's Armguard of the Screamer (magic item generator)
So, this guy has a nice tattoo on his right arm, and also lots of layers, tight bell bottoms, and also he can't talk because of the pendant that he can't take off. It's CURSED! Ooo. The armband was an attempt to counteract the pendant. It doesn't work but he likes how it looks. I took the chimney smoke idea literally. I tried to use dawn colors in his clothing and in the background.
A Naruto OC that I drew to resemble Myself, her name Is Kara-(means Empty)Yonaka(means Midnight) Most of her personality traits resemble my own- Originaly Fron a Village Called Mori but moved to Leaf when she was 11 Age-17 Eyes-Hazel(wears glasses) Hair-Brown with Red undertones Personality-Quite with people she dosent really know well, but loud and extreamly funny when around her closest friends.Really really Sarcastic,Kind, Gentle but uses her strength and power when it is needed,Cold at times to others feelings but tries to understand people. Ninja Skillz-1-5 starz Taijutsu**** Ninjutsu***** Genjutsu**(she is horrible at it and most of the time can only make tiny Genjutsu moves) Intellegence**** Special Jutsu-"Chakra Evolution"-Visable Chakra that is molded into "Bullets" that absorbs the apponents Chakra,and shuts down internal organs, but also alows Kara to restore her own Chakra.Sometimes the technic fails though and Kara can be knocked uncouncious because her Chakra is shut down(This is how her Team Mates go missing,she is left down for the count and her Teammates were either captured or killed) Sence that time she has been able to control it though.This is often her final and most devistating attack that is only used in dire situations. She Weilds a Large scroll that only she can read that has Ninjutsu that is suported by The Elemental(Fire,Water Wind,Earth, and Lightning)/Seasonal(Spring,Summer,Autum, Winter the kanji of which apper on her Scroll) nature of the world that only her Family is able to use, kind of like a kekkai genkai but its gained more by passed down knowledge of the family then through their Bloodline.Kara also began to train with Swords with her grandfather who was a Samurai, at the age of 9, so she often carries a kanata around with her. She just recently became a jonin and is now working her way up to become an Anbu or go into the INT (See OZy057's Naruto Eledia). Yonaka's head band does not carry the Leaf symbol, even though she lives in konoha she was not born there but in another very small village called Mori (or forest) Which had no symbol, so when she moved to Leaf she kept her original headband with no symbol to remember her life in Mori.She was on a team with two others Jun and Rina but both of them became Missing Nin...she still serches for them. Her Genin Sensei was named Toshiko Kaname who was only five years older but they havent seen each other in 4 years......................Well not like ALL of you wanted to know about her but i just like comming up with things for the characters I create so you can get some kind of picture of them other then what I've drawn for you...Well hope you like her^-^
For the contest of the other version was this AND I decide to change it [link] hope you like it better this one So told me I should put more backstory for my character. Her name is Yuu Aikawa age:16 She is from konoha village (so original I know, but I prefer something that already exists) She doesnt like her clothes she thinks white get dirty easy and pink is really a femenine color, she prefer blue but her family doesnt allow her, they say she is enough of a boy with just her actitude to dress like one. she is really strong in close range combat. She has a belt with 4 scrolls, these are given to each member of the family when they are 16 years old, each one gives the owner a different ability (water, earth, wind and fire)depending on the user and on the ability to learn new techniques they can make the scroll bigger and use more elements BUT she doesnt know how to used them, cause everytime she tried to study she get really REALLY distracted but she is really hopin how to used them...In the other hand she is the only one that can use the big scroll of the family(she stole it when she was 10 years and misteriously learn how to used it), that says only the wise one and the stornges can use...no one in the family knows why yuu can use it, she is not the wiser persons..in fact she is more of the intuitive person...but she is indeed one of the strongest of her family. She is a quick learner...when it is something that doesnt have to be read.. I think THATS all...if I miss something tell me
