Up until then, it has only been a rumor. A very persistent rumor, that was. But nobody had ever encountered Anima in person and lived long enough to tell the story. The ones that did survive, only saw the blazing light of his surrounding energy from a distance. And even that was enough to leave them traumatized for life.

Nobody know exactly was it was that Anima did to those people. He killed some of them, that was for sure. And he killed many, as he made many enemy's over time. But as he continued slaughtering every single soldier that went after hem, the army generals eventually gave up. And only the scientists were left, chasing this 'illusion'. Because that was what the government deemed him to be: nothing more than an illusion. Something like a mass hysteria that made more and more people go completely mad over time.

Those scientists knew better, however. Aiden's crew has been chasing this being for months already, but without any clear results. Although the creature didn't seem to respond so aggressively to the scientists as it did to the army, it was still highly dangerous. Even many scientists had already been fallen victim to his monstrous powers, and Kiriil knew that he had to be careful.

His fellow scientist didn't want to go with him, when he suggested following this creature all the way to the abandoned Neorasa headquarters. They thought it was foolish of him to go, and maybe they were right. He was all alone now. The energy measurement equipment, he brought with him, started to show more disturbing values as he progressed walking towards the building. Which was weird, because he couldn't see a thing yet. Was the equipment lying? It was terribly dark outside. As if a storm was coming. A weird storm. And Kiriil certainly wasn't feeling that well.

As he approached the old building, it suddenly came to him. As if he instinctively knew what was coming, he looked up to the towers. He held his breath. Anima! Was it real?
Before he could realize what was happening, the creature noticed him, turned his head and looked at him. All of a sudden the place was surrounded with blue energy and the energy pressure went up like crazy. Kiriil knew that it was better to run, but for some reason he couldn't avert his eyes. Anima didn't seem to be angry, nor did he seem to be smiling. His blazing eyes didn't display any emotion at all. As if he wasn't human.

Kiriil couldn't stop looking. The dark sky tore open and a portal to what seemed to be another world appeared. A reflection of what the old headquarters seemed to be, years ago. The energy measurement equipment went out with a sudden beep, the level of energy being too high to even measure. Kiriil looked at it with fear, but knowing that it was already too late to run. His lifeless body was found by his co-workers the next morning. Although he bleed through both eyes, nose and ears, he was found with a mysterious smile on his face. He had seen something nobody else had seen yet.


Edit: Tweaked the colors a bit so the artwork could be seen at dark monitors as well.

I could only laugh at their foolishness. So smart, yet a small child could win from them. My pale skin almost seemed to glow from all the energy that was running through my body. Such a pretty sight, yet so terribly dangerous.

Were they aware of my powers..?

I closed my eyes and emptied my mind. No more fear, or bad thoughts haunting my mind. Soon it would all fade away... until only madness remained.

Sketchier than usual, due to the lack of time.
I wanted to do something out of my comfort zone... like trying to draw rocks. Couldn't resist to add at least one of my own characters, though XD

The outside world didn't know about these children. It was better that way, Enirgon's employees were told, as they had to sign contract that forced them to keep their mouth tightly shut about the horrible experiments that happened there. These were no children. Although they looked like humans, and their appearance seemed just as cute as those of regular kids, there was something odd about them. Their eyes were empty.

Until then, there never were real problems. Sure, there were occasions in which a kid accidently escaped and wandered through the buildings. But they never did any damage.

How drastically would everything change, just by the appearance of one boy. Experiment XIV, or fourteen, as he was called. He looked just like the others when he arrived, just like a normal kid. With his black hair and pale skin, he kind of looked like a kid from Darkai, they said jokingly. Only his bright, glowing, red eyes set him apart from the rest of the group. The empty eyes of a true demon, they learned very soon...



Made with Paint tool SAI & Photoshop in way too many hours. But at least it's better than the 2007 version: damaimikaz.deviantart.com/art/…

I totally forgot to upload this.
The full version of the example pose I used for my workshop at animecon (and the tutorial here).
It's far from perfect, but that's pretty normal... considering I made this just 2 days before the deadline XD)

"So much for seeking power, you little brat".
At least, that was what they said, by then. He probably knew that it wouldn't end that way. Not just like that, without a fight. He didn't speak a single word after the day he was captured. Although silent, his eyes would never avert from the sky above. As if he was willing to say: one day I'll be out of here. I'll break out of this chains and move the sky again.



Yeah, this was an insane amount of work. The first time I did a real digital painting again, after 2 long years, and I've learned quite a lot along the process. Like to stop being afraid of making mistakes and merging everything in one layer, to speed up the process (and that was really needed. Even though my computer is pretty fast it took me over 3GB of ram to work on this thing). But I'm glad to say my work gets more and more like how it is in my head.

That... and too many Yuki Kajiura soundtracks: www.youtube.com/watch?v=To6KHE… www.youtube.com/watch?v=QelGyP… www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ce7StF… www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4Fea8…

And some more of my Emion characters.
These two are set apart from all other characters in Emion since they're the only two beings in Emion history that ever reached the highest level of element powers (the speculated level 0 power field). Although their appearance is mostly human, they're filled with pure energy from the inside. Their blood isn't red, like a normal persons, but is glowing blue, since it's filled with energy. They do have organs, like normal people do, but they stopped using them a long time ago. In theory, both Elysa and Anima do not need to eat or sleep in order to survive. It doesn't matter if they're blasted to pieces, or killed in any other way. They will not fade until the core of their energy is completely wiped away, which makes them nearly impossible to defeat.
Both of these being are referred to as spirits or gods, and are subject to many myths and legends surrounding them.

Characters from left to right:

:bulletblack: Elysa - The lady of darkness
Elysa is considered the first god of Emion history and is subject to many legends that last even 5000 years after her death. Her story is never fully told in the Emion story, for the simple reason that the true story of her existence is not known. The story that is told is that of a little girl that was banished from her village because of her scary powers. She survived in the woods for years, her hate for mankind growing every day. Before she even realized it, the energy in her body consumed her, and made her into a spiritual being.
She took revenge on mankind by destroying the complete Emion civilization. With the sunlight fading in the smoke, the world tuned dark for a few weeks, hence the name 'Lady of Darkness'. Civilization was swept back in time for hundreds of years. A few survivors decided to write the story, as they thought it happened, down on a paper, to prevent something like that from ever happening again.
Elysa disappeared after the explosion and was never seen again by human eyes. Some believed she was killed in the blasts, others believe she's still hiding somewhere, in order to return when humankind ever strays from the right path again.

:bulletblack: Anima - The endless
Anima is the second god of Emion. He appears a little more than 5000 years after Elysa, which led people to believe there's some kind of cycle, and a new god will be born every 5000 years. Not much is known about Anima's origins, since the world is at war when he makes his appearance. Some people think he's somehow involved in the war against Neorasa, as he wants to destroy Enirgon that badly. Others think he's just a innocent boy that got his lover killed in the war.
The one thing that people are sure about, and the one thing Anima ever admitted through his rampages, is that he became a god by wiping away his emotions, probably because he wanted to erase a painful experience from his live. Unlike Elysa, Anima doesn't show any anger, fear or sadness. It's just coldblooded anger and child-like curiosity that drives him.
There are only a few people who survived a close encounter with Anima, and even fewer scientists that had the chance to survive an encounter with him. But the ones that did, are highly impressed by his powers, and all come to that same conclusion that the way he moves his energy is impossible, unless he's able to channel it through several dimensions at the same time.
Since Anima appeared in the middle of the war, more than enough people tried to kill him, but all attempts were effortless. Even blasting half of his body away, doesn't make him die. For this reason, he's deemed immortal. Like Elysa, Anima disappears after time, when the war is over. But unlike his predecessor, people don't think he died. People just think the end of the war put his mind to rest, and made him return human again.

I've created countless stories in my head about those 2 already. I just wanted to draw them for one time.

These two kids are Satoshi and Ryuma Kenzo, both sons of the imperial family of Emion. Unlike what many people think, the two are not twins. They're just brothers and there is actually 5 years between them. The possibility that the two would meet like this is close to zero, although they do resemble each other a lot, even with the 5 years between.

Satoshi (on the left) is the oldest brother and the original heir to the throne. Even as a kid he was very serious and he possessed a tremendous amount of energy, which made his eyes always glow. He was highly intelligent, even as a kid, but hardly spoke to anyone and was very introverted. Because of that, and his growing power, people at the palace thought he was a creepy kid. Although the ruling emperor was fascinated by Satoshi's powers, his parents saw him as a treat to the world and eventually decided to banish him from the Imperial family.

Ryuma (on the right) was born 5 years later than Satoshi and was destined to be the new heir to the throne. Although he looks just like Satoshi (exept for the red eyes), he certainly doesn't possess the same powers. Ryuma wasn't able to use his powers until he was nine years old. From that day on, he was trained to be the next emperor. Ryuma is very different than Satoshi was. He's much more cheerful and outgoing, but he also has a serious side. But overall he's far more soft-natured than Satoshi.

Eventually Satoshi ended up as the leader of the largest anti-government organization and is known as Sato Memoru there. Not because he hates his family for what they did to him (he doesn't actually care that much) , but just because he wants to kick up some dust.
Ryuma is still an emperor in training, and he will probably stay that way for the next few years.

I didn't sketch too much new stuff lately. Been too stress to focused on learning new things.
I just felt like doing some Emion character stuff. A bit of background story on Sato and how all fates are intertwined with (young) Anima :)

About the character
Mister Shinozato, or Neko as he is called, is an original character from my Fawo storyline which I thought up around 2003. Project Fawo officially stopped in 2006, with the 6 year long storyline coming to an end. But I've always liked this character, especially since he's been around in the story for 3 years.

Neko used to be Fawo's most wanted, and one of the most bad-ass criminals around. With a scythe being his main weapon most of the Fawoians refer to him as being the death god of the world, although he's not exactly fond of that nickname since he thinks It's too cliché.

Neko was originally thought up as some 16 year old boy (around the same age as me). I thought it would be cool to redesign him to look a little older and more mature.

Drawing
