I promised myself that I will make an artwork of Miata in her awakened form the moment I see it revealed in the manga. And here it is!
First time I saw her awakened form I puked rainbows. She's a dragon with many many wings! Claymore wiki says, her design is reminiscent of the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl. It's supposed to be a serpent with rainbow colors. Like Nyan Cat. But... I didn't color this in rainbows... It'll look not right.
Anyways, was happy painting this. It's good stress relief. Yeah, I did this during work. It wasn't a busy day (I guess).
I kinda drew Miata's awakened form here a little different. I kept her more Claymore self, retaining her body, her pretty long hair, her face, etc... If you're curious, this is how her awakened form really looks like - images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__c...
She is back! The queen! The goddess who graces her victims with a faint smile! That last page of chapter 149 - got me all hyped. Teresa seems to be back.
Excitement equals fan art. And here's a tribute to Teresa. Though I can't say I'm satisfied with this - lots of warping on her face and hair area. Tsk. Damn flimsy paper. I had to Photoshop it away the best I can. I colored it in shades of brown (except her eyes) - wanted to make it look like a memory.
As promised, here is that other Claymore art work I planned on uploading, featuring *drum rolls* Clarice and Miata! My two other fave characters in the story.
Ugh. I actually want to redo some stuff in this painting - like making Clarice's face look less fierce, make her hands a tad smaller, adjust the size of Miata's head, omit the blue sky... Tsk. The sky most of all. Covering that big of a space with poster paint sure wasn't a good idea (especially when the drawing pad paper's not up to the task). But I wanted it to look more natural than just filling it up with a block color using Photoshop. Arg! Can't do much about the crinkles and the warping too... That's the downside to traditional art - no Layers to edit, no Undo button... *sigh*
Yet despite all that, I think I'm fine with the finished work. My fave part was doing Miata's hair. I love this duo - a mother and a baby. They're so sweet it makes me go "awwww..." (especially when Miata does that "thing" with Clarice).
Damn! Can't wait for the next chapter. Miata's AWAKENING!!!
Just some random Claymore drawings I did on my little notebook. I drew these on one page each and just put them together with Photoshop. And if you look closely, the lower right on both drawings is a little blurred 'caue I had to edit out a Sanuk logo. Yeah, the notebook seems like a freebie from Sanuk. I actually just found it abandoned in the office long ago and saw that it didn't have lines in it so I thought... SKETCH PAD!
So on the left is Miria (love drawing that scar on her face) looking fierce and on the right is Miata (looking a little mature) calmly awakening.
I used colored pencils for these (that I "borrowed" from a friend).
I have another Claymore drawing that I did in the notebook here:[link] And it's crappy. Don't click.
I'm not sure if I'm happy with how this painting ended up. It... Just isn't how I had imagined it in my head. Also, somebody else already thought of a similar idea to this. Found that fan art after Googling Riful's images. Should've Googled first before putting to paper what idea my mind has come up. Too late though. But I still made it look unique and unmistakably MINE. (Claymore and its characters don't belong to me by the way, this is a fan art. )
Actually, the picture that inspired me to draw this is this particular page from the manga - [link]
Damn! Riful is so awesum! She's so cute! But freaky! That's exactly what I wanted to convey here, mixing sweet/innocent with maniacal lunacy and sadism!
I actually tried to mimick how the author (Norihiro Yagi) colors the characters - especially the nose!
If you thought Deneve had an impressive stock of spare limbs you should see her blood supply. And I don't care what you say. Irene is still alive and this will happen whenever they're done kicking Priscilla's ass.
Originally, I was gonna have Clare say, "I've come to repay my debt... with interest." I'm still not sure which line I like better. I only flatted this one 'cuz I got a bagillion ideas floating in my head and I work way to slow to do more than just flats .
Geeze, why is inking so hard, I messed up so many times on this one, I seriously can't draw a straight line. Aaaand I still don't know how to work blood spray, I think I'll do a study or something... so morbid . Btw, I'm still not sure whether I like the Ghosts' outfits in grey-ish or navy-ish better...
This is (young) Clare and her beloved Teresa from the anime/manga Claymore. Like what happened to Kaito in HXH, Teresa's sudden death also took me by surprise.
The style I used here is similar to the previous drawing I made of Pitou and Kaito, but I wanted to show more of pure love and a sense of utter loss (instead of sadism).
Again, I drew the blood in a symbolic shape - this time a wing. It usually gives a feeling of flight or ascendance, reflecting the fact that Teresa never really died, she continues to live on as a permanent part of Clare's body when she chose to become a Claymore.
