I liked Ruru's pose so much I felt a need to use it one more time! And in case you was wonderin' where Ruru-kun gets it from, ehehe, look no further. XD Mmmm Kuru-kunnn.
Had alot of funn on him! And I unearthed some Microns I totally didn't know I had! Which is uber since the store my sis checked for me was out of 03s! D: But I found a niceee 05 I still had that did the job just right! XD
He's finally coloured, lol. Took me long enuff! And now my hands are killing me, ughh all those layers of purpleeee...x_x. But it's worth it, for someone as uberful as Merc! Bwahaha!! XD He's got a nice rack of horns, eh? >: 3
This is a photomanipulation/painting that I did for a friend in #DAPensioners, the original photograph that I used is in her gallery (lusitana), and you will see there, that there was more than a little manipulation to be done to attain the full piece. She requested that I turn her into the Goddess of Greek Mythos known as Eris, who by the legend was the reason the Trojan War began in the first place (see Edith Hamilton's "Mythology" pg.86 I think), when she cast a golden apple amongst Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite as a prize to the most beautiful. The prince of Troy, Paris, was called upon to judge amongst the three goddesses, for the other gods had wisely declined to be judges to the contest. The Roman version is much the same, but as with all Romanization of Pantheonic Mythologies, they renamed Eris to Discordia. She is known as the Goddess of Discord and her symbol is either that of a Golden Apple or a Viper.
The other day I picked a new set of colored pencils, dirt cheap ones at a Michael's Crafts, anf I am so loving them! Nice firm leads and several colors I didn't have, which is amazing. XD. I used some of the darker tones here for Tri's skin, and whooo. They work especially well over Prisma markers.
Anyway!! The finished version of Tri and Rigs. I chose to leave the bg white, since there's just so much going on, lol. I had tons of fun shading all of Rigs' tribalness! Wahaha.
