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. :D 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..."

This is my entry for the Seventh Sanctum Class Act competition. [link]

Generator: Humorous Fantasy Class Generator
Class: Florist Ninja
Media: Pens, pencils, letrasets.

Toshiro was always picked on by the other boy ninjas for constructing bouquets as a hobby - the girl ninjas adored him for it and he wooed many girls with beautiful flowery gifts.
With the coming of the new era and the decline of traditional occupations and services such as the ones that samurais and ninjas offer, these specialists were forced to find another way of life.
Toshiro untied his head protector, donned a bandanna with a quaint flower logo on it, and opened a small but increasingly successful florist business.
He still likes to employ his ninja skills in his new job, using kunai to trim flowers, throwing shuriken to detach blossoms from the tallest of trees and even bunshin (clone) himself when lots of orders come in.

An entry for Seventh Sanctum's Extreme Character Contest.

Name: Ghost Reaper

Generated Randomness!

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 =P

Other entry is here.

Weee, more Loveless. Once again, done in Open Canvas, but I aimed for drawing the picture based on the Manga look, not the Anime look. I dunno if it came out that way or not, regardless, I'm proud of this one. Ritsuka's adorable. :heart:

I wonder what people think of Ritsu-chan being around someone who doesn't have their ... ears. xD

Inspired by a picture I saw of Envy as a Naruto-style ninja, I drew Ed, Al and Winry in the same style.

Somebody had to have fishnets.

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.

Of course, being Naruto obsessed means a naruto-like ID. Here's my sand nin self, i personally love the outfit. I figure if i were a ninja, i'd be a puppeteer.

The style is a semi-shaman king style, i never watch the anime or read the manga, but i adore the style and had to use it.

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.
