This came out way far better than I thought it would, I was so tired while working on the coloring for this last night I wasn't even thinking. And I do seem to do my best work when I don't overthink things and just .. do them.

I've been experimenting alot with brush settings in Photoshop and how they can work with my tablet. I've also been focusing on color alot more if you couldn't tell.

Anyway, odd motivation for this piece. The biggest was: it's mostly for fun. I've been hankering to draw Azrael in a costume like this and a sketch I did came out so good I had to do a final. I'm going to explain the rest in bullet points cause it's easier:

:bulletpurple: I figured Azrael probably wore a different outfit when he was the practicing Angel of Death/Destroying Angel. This isn't final, however. Either way its kind of dumb to think he's worn the same thing for several thousand years :slow:

:bulletpurple: I've seen several paintings of the Angel of Death wearing robes of this color scheme.

:bulletpurple: I've been thinking alot about changing Azrael's sword, making it smaller/thinner. This too is not final. In fact this sword I drew here is kinda crappy.

:bulletpurple: You can see the face styles for the angels changing here. Overall I've been putting more detail into the nose/lip areas of my characters, but the angels are going even more to the realistic side than characters from other worlds/stories. Which is fine by me.

I haven't had alot of finished art lately because I've been sketching like crazy, defining the faces of the angels and actually doodling out older characters of mine and improving on their designs. I'll upload sketches on my website in time.

:bulletpurple: That fire came out friggin' awesome.

:bulletpurple: Azrael is missing his scar because this would be him before the war in Heaven.

:bulletpurple: It sucks that the hand I actually drew well is mostly hidden by the flames.

:bulletpurple: To get the shadows and highlights on Az's face right I referenced several pictures of faces lit from below, and also set an Obitsu drawing doll over a lamp to shine light on it's face (better for tones as the heads are rubbery and flesh-colored, as opposed to the glossy and grey Art S. Buck models which I also own/use)

Despite the refreshed computer having no MP3s I did manage to get myself some mood music going for this piece, luckily I have plenty of good CDs to rip. Alot of E Nomine and Modest Mouse went into this (odd combonation, eh?). Some Cowboy Bebop music too :lol:

Do you know ?
She makes the BEST Sonic fanarts EVER.
She's the first person I've ever seen drawing in that style. And I just HAD to try it too....
Well, this is the result.

The left one is Osa (or better: ME!!!), as a ringtailed lemur (also know as a katta), and the right one is ~A2-Yuki (or Edina...XD). as a mouse.

The design is (c) by me, but the style itself belongs to...er....Nintendo????

EDIT: Nope, the (c) is by Sega. Stupid me. :)

So,this is my page for the TES 2013 Calendar project by :icongreedofan:
I had done March again in the previous 2010 project,haha XD



Now,this image could get some reaction,since it is a pairing of opposing factions from Skyrim,Thalmor and Stormcloaks.Obviously,with Thalmor being the bad guys,there are not many fans of them around XD
But I don't like seeing things bure black and white.Unfortunately,I can only recall one or two "good" Altmer from the game,which were merchants XD Of course,a scenario needs good and evil,but I was really disappointed that there was no single Thalmor who acted friendly,or had doubts in their doings or ways.Personally,I think there should've been at least one character like that.
Anyway,since the game didn't give me what I was looking for,I created her myself =D To show that what's important are the individuals and not groups...
And I imagine that the younger recruits who are being fueled and possibly used by their elders wouldn't hold an equally strong grudge against eachother as the first generation.Living close for long periods leading to relationships is pretty possible I think.And this could lead to alternate ends of the war,probably one with less blood.

So,the pic doesn't really have any relation to the month,besides the weather maybe XD.But perhaps this could remind you to give a second chance to people you think you didn't like this month.Who knows what may come out =)

Technical wise,I'm unfortunately not really able to say I'm satisfied with this picture.The black and white lineart looked pretty good,but when I start coloring I have hard time maintaining the atmosphere I want the pic to have.Leading to colors that do not get along with eachother XD
But well,you gotta keep trying to get there,and here you're seeing one of the attempts.And of course,tomorrow was the deadline for this XD


Always waiting for comments and critiques =)

My first, last, and only Escaflowne fanart. Of course, it also happens to be one of my best and favorite fanarts I've ever done. ^___^ This is done in Esca movie style, not the series.
