this is a gift/fanart for the amazingly skilled
of her OC Nae.
i loved how dainty and eligant she is and i wanted to draw a kind of japanese meets western fantasy scene. and this gave me the right chance =w=.
and by the way. i spent ducking HOURS on this. and i mean many MANY hours i do think i spent all in all 12 hours slaving on what is possibly my most detailed peice to date. I guess i got carried away with the new methods and techniques i was trying out on this drawing. starting with a monotonal base colour and making silhouettes getting all my base tones from there, and not using a line art to paint into. just painting under my sketch and taking it from there. was really fun and new. i ever tried out slarnted perspective out. makes things feel a little dramatice
story bit: ( WARNING > EMMENCELY BAD SPELLING AND GRAMMER YOUR BRAIN HAS BEEN WARNED )
Nae ran through the ice clad forest, she was panic and scared, being chased down by bandits, wanting to have their forced way with her and rob the poor thing of dignity and posetions. her cloths torn and battered crying for help in the icy grips of fear and adrenaline corsing through her vains as she could hear them gaining on her closer and closer, but she collapsed falling onto an old tree and the surrounded her " well well boys look what we have here, isn't she a pretty one" the ugly spiderlike man said smirking hungrilly at her * perhaps we aught to be gentle with her. dont wanna break her befor we sell her on right lads" the thugs all laughed at her the boss of them seeming to be the spider dropped his gear and got two of his boys to pin her" your not going to like this. but we are " as he was about to drop his cloths a voice with a strange unknown accent floated through the air " leave the woman alone, if you want to walk away alive " they turned and saw a hooded figure covered is furrs and metal armour, but in its hand was held a strange sword unlike any blade they had ever seen. two sided, a long handle. and massive in scale , but most noteable was the strange unreadable runes blowing with an intesitry that could only be magic of some kind. she figure whos mas was mostly covered raised its chin and his bright blue eyes where visable glowing like the blade, and pointing the massive blade at the gang of thugs " I told you to leave, now do it ! " Nae couldnt belive what she saw, some stranger coming to her aid, the large spider stood and bellowed out picking up his multiple swords and unshiething them " HAHAHA! you must have some kind of death wish! cmon boys lets have some fun with this gaijin" she stranger still had a cold near expressionless face untill he took an unknown fighting stance bringing his blade close to his chest and planting his feet. as the thugs came at him with their katanas a grasshopper flew up at him and tried to stab him. but the cloaked man just moved his body slightly to its right and took a swing with the might blade he had and in that one swoop the blade smashed its way though the hoppers katana like it was a twig and then through him severing him in twine. his body twitched on the floor and the stranger took his stance again " one more chance" but they didnt listern to him and they all charged and one by one they fell the blade and his sheir strength forcing their way through the thugs and badits, finally coming to the last one. the spider , and the multiple blade did nothing to phase the man, using flurishing moves that seem to connect to eachother completely differen to what she is used to seeing in sword play and then the final blow. going though all four of the spiders blades shappering at contact and splitting him in two down the middle, the man panting and breathing heavily, gaining his breath befor walking over to the stunned small white mantise and softly asked" are you okay ? " she couldn't belive the ordeal she witnessed. a bloodbath and yet not a single drop on him and it fell off his blade like water. and he was unharmed as he helped her to her feet " y yes gaiji- I mean warrior," he put a reassuring hand on her shoulder the hair blew over his face showing his eyes and he smiled but then looked around " i think there are more" he said looking to her "is there somehwere safe i can take you ? " y-yes. this way " and then she led the way himguarding her his sword out at all times prepared just incase.
