Concept: Original
Character: Original
Drawn without references
Tools used:  black pen, black marker, colored pencils, colored pens, silver metallic sign pen and correction fluid for the deer spots


At first, I thought I wouldn't be able to finish this on time. Thank God, I did and here she is! :) All the concepts/ thoughts started popping out on the 29th and the deadline's 30th and that time I was thinking "I should hurry!" Anyway, I'm free on weekends only so I find time to draw so scarce unlike before...T_T

I wanted her to be like a protector of the deer, so yeah she is a deer nymph! :) I also wanted to incorporate the "black background technique" so that I can emphasize the subject even more.

Verdeena, the deer nymph guards the Western forest and protects the all types of deer. :)

HOW I CAME UP WITH THE CHARACTER

The Name--- Yeah, Verdeena is based on the word verdant, meaning green. In our language, "berde/verde" means green. As seen in the drawing, she has eyes like green orbs and hair of light green tint.

The Hair Dress--- It is composed of what I call "antler branches" attached to a  wild vine formed in circular pattern.


The Antler Branches---I'm proud to say this is my idea. :)  The antler tree does not bear leaves and its branches are pure white. They grow up  to 3-4 feet only in Western mountain tops and each branch resembles deer antlers (if we disregard the color ^^) It is good for creating "bonzai," too. :) Not coloring these branches, I thought, adds to the winter effect...do you think so, too? :)

The Deers--- Sorry, this is my first time drawing a deer (the very first one I've drawn was the one on her right). These deers  are based on my memory, those I've seen on TV and I could remember, I have seen a big old deer for real only one in  a wildlife park (and it dis not have antlers)  Deers do not usually roam our country although there are very small deers found in a specific region which we call as "pilandok" or mouse deer but I haven't really got the chance to see one.  (Oh, the mouse deer is the smallest deer family in the world! ) I guess the ones with antlers are the males, right? So in this drawing, I'm not really sure if I added enough spots, if the sizes of the spots are correct/proportional to the body based on real deer anatomy,  and if the antlers are in the correct position/are planted in the correct area (sorry T_T). What I love coloring the most are the white spots at the deers' back though. After using correction fluid, I shaded the surrounding part with pencil.


The Background--- Four deers surround the subject-two of them are females and the other two are males. I incorporated the white antler branches and I thought of adding those shrubs of red berries to add to the colors... These give the drawing a winter and Christmas theme, too (which is unintentional!^^) . :D I also love coloring the moss green surfaces of the pieces of earth where the 2 female deers stand (I used colored pen) :) I wanted to add sparkles around her so yeah, I used the metallic silver sign pen for that...:) The most tedious to do was to fill in those empty spots within the antler branches, but thank goodness, I got broad and fine black marked for these. ^^


...this is for the group: M/ARepeatingContest
my goal is not to win but to express my thanks and support  to the group :)

'guess it's  better in FULL VIEW ^_^
Concept: Original
Character: Original (Akamira) 
Drawn without references
Tools used:  black pen, black marker, colored pencils, colored pens, silver metallic sign pen and correction fluid for the glowing thingies that float around her

To me, holiday means being carefree, being free from worries, having that buoyant feeling within (interpreted through this art - a floating fairy from heaven) . Holiday is a time to do what you want to do the most- it is a time when you can take your thoughts to the world of fantasy, getting your imagination go wild! I celebrate holiday by being inspired by those feelings brought about by the season itself!^^

This is also my entry for Creation-Inspiration's Holiday contest.
(will post character description soon...) 

General Description:
Indeed, she is  a holiday fairy who dwells in the "Scarlet Line." The Scarlet Line is a dimension that exists between heaven and earth. She ascends to heaven to collect the positive energy and descends to earth to give bright scarlet hues to nature during holidays.

The Name--- If you watch a lot of anime's, even if you do no speak Japanese, yu would know what "aka" means...yep, it means red. The second word I've thought was "mirai" which means future, but I deleted the last letter. So, her name basically means "Red Future" -Akamira. 

The Parts---I decided that the main color should be red. Her hair is crimson red and the dress is light red with some shades of yellow, too. If you will look closer,the eyebrows and the eyelashes have red tints, too.  I love drawing the fern-like leaves and belt using metallic silver sign pen. Actually, the most tedious to do was to fill in the gaps between the hair strands using black marker!  I used fine marker for that and broad marker for the rest of the background. What I love coloring the most are the flowers and her hair and also, those glowing lights that surround her. I used correction fluid for the glowing lights and colored them with yellow colored pen and those tiny dots encircling them using silver metallic sign pen. the other sparkling thingies are irregular dots made via correction fluid which were overlapped with red colored pen and pencil.
I imagined her with flawless and very fair skin so I did not shade her skin  like what I usually do (in Chrisoleah, Catamina and Verdeena) by fating the black pen to emphasize the shadowy parts.


So, there she is!

Concept: Original
Character: Original (Kradhikari) 
Drawn without references
Tools used:  black pen, black marker, silver metallic sign pen and blue colored pen for the eyes...^^

This art took much longer time to be finished than my regular art...whew, with those details! but I had fun and I'm proud of this because everything in it is my idea: the armor/outfit, the sword, the character, the flowers and the background...

See her face focused----
Kradhikari: in progress and focused by eirol87

General Description:
Yay! Black and White Theme is awesome! I wanted to follow the theme in every aspect. First of all, the character herself is teeming with black and white hues; her long "spaghetti" hair is white and she is wearing an armored suit with black and white designs. I decided to make the eye color different-yep, for me, blue is catchy and unique! Anyway, almost everything is black and white. The roses are black with white petal edges. The branches beside her and the stems of the roses are pure black. The sword is my own design- with the black blade and white upper parts and handle. The very tiny flowers in the background are white and four-petaled (if you will take a closer look ^^). The leaves on both of her sides are pure black, in contrast to the flowers' color. The helmet above her head is half black and half white, which is torn in two (there is a story behind that :D) and it's my design, too. Her armored suit is mostly black but has white-tinted curvy designs (yay! 'played with the curves again! )^^ i actually changed my mind about putting thorns in the rose stems/vines. If you will look closer, two strands of the rose vines on her left part have thorns but the others all over the bg have none. Lol!

The Tools--- Black sign pen is the main tool I used for the details. I also used ordinary black pen for the finer details, black marker for the broader areas (such as the sword and mask) I fated the pen to emphasize the shadowy parts of the face and the bandage-like material wrapped around the sword handle. I used pencil for the ashes in between the branches.  I also used silver metallic sign pen for the spiky area of the helmet's white sand. 

The Name--- Her name might sound Hindu, but it's not derived from such word..lol!  Kradhikari comes from the words "dark" spelled backwards and the Japanese word 'hikari" which means "light." So her name means "light of the darkness" (at least for me ^^)

The Story--- Yay! I wrote a little story for this drawing! During the Dark Era, the Shadow Warrior obliterated a thousand "yokai"  sent from the underworld to ravage the East. The Shadow Warrior was the pride of humans, the fiercest of them all and had always won battles. Unfortunately, her last opponent was the man whom she never expected to be a foe- the man whom she fell in love with (whom she thought was human but the leader of the "yokai" army). On her last fight, her mask was torn in two. Only then was her identity revealed- the strongest weapon of humanity whom everyone thought was a man, was a woman with an angel's visage... Sadly, the blade that penetrated through her belonged to the only man who owned her heart! T_T


UPDATE: I changed the main file with the clearly scanned one with black borders made via MS Paint to make it more presentable. I added the description, too. ^^

Plese set to FULL VIEW
Fanart: dedicated to all their fangirls , or anyone who's an SnK fan ^^
tools: ordinary black pen, colored pencils, colored pens

Characters:

Jean Kirstein, Armin Arlart, Eren Jaeger and Lance Corporal Rivaille/Levi from the anime Shingeki no Kyojin
***note: these characters do not belong to me but they belong to the anime Shingeki no Kyojin and its creators
***pose, facial expressions, gifts, outfit designs and background for this fanart are my own concept though (no references)

This piece was kind of a rushed work, because i wanted to color it immediately after drawing...you see, i was so excited to color one again cuz it seems i haven't done it for a very long time! (im sorry, im not too good at it though...unless there are references ;) well, my personal quote might explain it: "i can easily draw what i can see but i try hard to draw what i cannot see" lol, does it make sense? ^^)

I wanted it to be as lively as possible, since it's my first fanart of SnK characters. It's been quite a while since i colored my drawing, too ( i've been making lots of monochromes and sketches) well, the original concept i had in mind was- if ever those SnK boys were courting a girl, what gift would they give? ...but yeah, in general, it turned out to be a gift to their fangirls/fans! LOL

***Jean made these colorful cupcakes from the heart, i was thinking he has a soft side and better yet, could be the best family man among the four
(he was the one who crafted them with icings, too!lol) ^^
whew, this was the most tedious to color, the BG and his gift!

***Armin holds the cutest teddy bear with button eyes and pink fur and blush! and guess what? that's for you fangirl!(or any SnK fan) ^^
this portion was the easiest to color, light and bubbly! my sister said she would prefer this adorable gift, lol!

***Eren gives you the sweetest chocolates, the most expensive ones are in that red handcrafted heart-shaped box ^^
i was planning to color the box cover plain red, but 'changed my mind at the last minute and added some designs on it, lol

***classical as ever, Levi romantically offers you a bouquet of crimson red roses as a symbol of love and passion...lol! (yeah, he's gonna serenade you, too!^^)
my sister's friend said i could have switched Levi's and Eren's gift, cuz the chocolates suit Levi's aura better...do you think so, too?

'hopefully, there would be more fanarts to come! ^^

What you see as brilliance, I see as shadows...

-- xx --

 

yay another artwork completed! :iconcrazyginplz: I started this like...before Christmas believe it or not, and only completed it now! :iconcryforeverplz: ((sorry for being so slow guys orz

 

but yeah, I realized it's been over 2 years since I last drew these two together♥ [i'm not going to link to the artwork here....you'll have to go thru my gallery and find that ugly piece of shit on your own lmao] ...and I bet most of you are thinking "um, who's the guy on the left, shinji?" :o

....uh, he's my oc tatsuya >~< whom oddly, despite being a guy (and you all know how I love to draw guys), I don't draw that much...

I want to change that this year though! one of my resolutions is to draw my OCs that aren't aiori more~~ so more of tatsuya, natsumi (pink haired girl), hiji (from flaming resolve...if any of you read that lol), kotori & yuma (from captain's letters) and maybe i'll come up with some more~~ and ofc I still want to draw aiori :XD:

 

overall, I think i'm not quite happy with this picture...aiori just looks stupid imo and the background is some failed attempt at drawing water in copic markers OTL I think i'll stick to using watercolour to draw/paint water lol

I wanted the atmosphere of this piece to be a lot darker...originally what I had in mind was more on the R-18 side actually :XD: but then I toned it down and then as I was colouring and working on it...it just ended up like this :iconginfacepalmplz: ごめんw

 

materials used: copic sketch & ciao markers, g-pen, maru-pen, parker black ink, white acrylic paint, copic colourless ink, white & silver gelly roll pens, copic multiliners 0.03 & 0.05mm, prismacolour white colour pencil

aiori, tatsuya, art (c) me
