This is Angela, a character I made for some short story I wrote a while ago. Things lead this ex model to cannibalism, basically.

I wanted to explore a toned down palette to tell a bit of her own personality, using colors mostly associated with femininity and innocence, contrasted with the bloodies parts (that purposely might appear as smudged lipstick). The blurred half intends to convey the disassociation between her mind and her own body.

This is something I started long ago, but gave it a finishing now, so I guess it took me 2 days, but in different years :lol:

To your eyes, my beauty is a colorful candy in the grey dessert.
To your heart, my grace is a love that you are longing for.
Come close to me, you would soon know that I am not just a dream.

You whisper to my ear, I am the priceless jewel that you would like to keep forever.
You kiss me like a drop of ale, soothing the dreaded thirsts of your soul.
Embrace me, you would soon know that I am more precious than anything you ever have.

Let your heart desire me, it tells you no lies.
Feel these last delight, it gives you no regret.
For when this trance of delirium ends, you would soon know I am the collector of your soul.

BACKGROUND STORY
Shea'Rin is an exotic blade dancer, a private performer for His Majesty the King of Ba'er Haerun. It is said that no men can resist her charm as she is the most perfect creation a god has ever made. Her beauty is beyond words. Her pair of aquamarine eyes sooth every heart of man that lays eyes upon hers. Each of her moves is so graceful that it allures every man into their deepest imagination of her. Like a whisper of delirium, the present of Shea'Rin casts the sanity out of any man that is watching her.

Shea'Rin is an exceptional performer, but no man other than His Majesty the King of Ba'Er Haerun himself has the privilege to see her dancing. To the King, she is priceless, valuable more than thousand jewels and gold, a trophy that he would not share with other. Thus, the stories of Shea'Rin becomes tales, spoken among all men that could only dream to see her performing the enchanting dance, as somehow no man has ever succeed to see the forbidden dance.

The tales of Shea'Rin travel far, reaching the Damarian Wasteland at the farthest South of the Ba'er Haerun. The vast badlands has become a perfect hideout for a band of desert raiders that called Shu'har. This group of four hundred vile criminals is lead by Uzhaku Rahaban, a ruthless and cunning barbarian. His greed of wealth and psychotic obsession for beautiful maidens has brought endless terrors to Ba'Er Haerun. Imperial troops have never succeeded to put an end to their reign of terror as they're cunningly strikes only at night and hide themselves at the wasteland when the morning comes. For years, Uzhaku and his men had killed more than thousands of villagers, rampaging their treasures, and abducting hundreds of maiden, forcing those young woman to fulfill those barbarian's ill desire. Mercy never crossed their black hearts as they would slay the maidens when they are no longer satisfying.

The tale of Shea'Rin at Uzaku's ears has made him overwhelmed by ecstasy, he dreams of having the most beautiful maiden in the kingdom to serve him. So in the next full month, Uzhaku orders all of his men to abduct as many maidens as they can from the kingdom and demand that the King’s hand over his most beloved dancer in exchange for the release of one hundred maidens that are currently in Shu'har's possession. Otherwise, he will kill all those maidens and kidnapped a hundred more until the King fulfilled his demand.

Knowing how dreadful this issue is, Shea'Rin herself asked the king to submit to the raiders' demand. On the next morning, a couple of raiders take her away to meet Uzhaku. After a day walk in the heat of the desert, she arrives at the present of the barbarian leader. At the moment Uzhaku laid his eyes upon the beautiful dancer, he is overjoyed by her exquisite look and charm. He had been told about the beauty of Shea'Rin, but what he sees at the moment is far beyond what he had imagined. Uzhaku instantly fell in love with Shea'Rin. He commands the beautiful dancer to strip off her clothes and blades, Shea'Rin complies to the wish of Uzhaku without hesitation but she insists that she would need the blades in order to perform her dance. Uzhaku is about to hesitate, but he was too arrogance, a girl with a few blades will surely be harmless in front of four hundred armed men, so he let her to keep her blades.

Uzhaku's men lit fire torches in circle, preparing the stage for the dancer's performance. With the blades in her hands, Shea'Rin performs what Uzhaku and all of his men have been waiting for. That dawn, all of the raiders are thrilled with joy and ectasy as Shea'Rin dances beautifully, so graceful and mesmerizing. Her blades dance around as they are having their own lives, flowing in harmony with her every move. It makes all eyes of men stare without a single blink, dragging their mind out of their bodies, and bringing all men to frenzy with the excitement.

But unknown to Uzhaku and his men, Shea'Rin is not just an ordinary blade dancer. She is the imperial most elite assassin, a specialist in killing male objectives. The reason that no men was ever allowed to see her dance was not because she is the King's private dancer, instead she had slain all men that ever had the chance to see her dancing. The exotic dance itself is her method of assassination, to draw her victims in delirium and rendering them vulnerable for her to kill.

Having every of her audiences fallen in delirium, her dancing suddenly become lethal. Her blades cut off Uzaku's head, dropping it to the ground. Uzhaku was the first one to be sleeping in hell that night, followed almost instantly by all of his men as the blades keep swinging with her dancing, cutting off more heads and limbs from their bodies. She strikes so fast that no men have ever realized they have been killed by her blades. At the end of dawn, Shea'Rin finished her dancing and slain every one of the four hundred raiders. The Shu'har's years of terror ends in a single night with a sole delirium.

--------

THE BLADES
Shea'Rin carries an armament of 4 blades - Pain, Pride, Grace and Glory.
Pain and Pride is a pair of blades made by Japanese master blacksmith, Taketzu Hanzo. These two blades are made especially for Shea'Rin. Pain ('Kutsuu') is a zweihander, a type of two handed sword, but its weight is light enough to be held by one hand. This large blade is made to inflict as many pain to its victim instantly kill the target in agony if not killed instantly by the wound it caused.
Pride ('Hokori') is a kodachi, a blade shorter than katana but longer than wakizashi. This blade is made to match with the wielder's height as length of the blade will virtually give no blind spot when used in defense. Easy to say Pride is her impenetrable shield. As a blade dancer, Shea'Rin must keep her armor light to be able to perform her dancing, so she must rely on her blades as her defense. Pride provides very exceptional usage is parrying all incoming attacks.

Grace and Glory are twin long swords, imperial sacred blades that Shea'Rin received from His Majesty the King of Ba'er Haerun for her service to the kingdom. These beautifully crafted blades are also a symbol of the highest imperial enforcer authority, as these blades can only be wield by the most skilled fighter of the Kingdom of Ba'er Haerun. These twin blades are very light and harmonious, making the wielder to be able to flawlessly attacking and parrying at the same time.

All of Shea'Rin's blades are coated with a special poison. This intoxicating potion itself is not lethal and smells like a lovely perfume, but it instantly renders male nerves to temporary dysfunction, much like the effect of a sleeping drug. This is also why she will never draw her blades unless she is going to assassinate her targets.

--------

TRIVIA OF BLADE DANCERS
Only females are qualified for the profession of imperial blade dancer. These elite level fighters have the highest swords skill of all fighter classes and they can move incredibly fast to strike their foes down. These Middle Eastern fighters are famous with their swordplay that resembles beautiful dancing but are extremely lethal. They are very agile, moving with grace and skill while slaying their foes down.

The strength of a blade dancer is quite impressive although may not as powerful as Barbarian or Gladiator class. Blade dancers are lightly armored fighters, thus giving them very little protection. They compensate their lack of armor with high agility and excellent parrying skill. It is almost impossible to defeat a blade dancer in one on one fight. Blade dancers usually carry more than one sword, as they excel in fighting with dual swords.

It's clear that we are all dependent on oil in one form or another, and while everyone is complaining about rising gas prices, most people usually don't consider the true cost of oil.

Oil companies like to spin lies about how the earth's resources is for everyone, which is why they should have the right to drill everywhere to make that resource available to the public. Sounds nice when they put it that way, doesn't it? In actuality, when they bribe governments to drill in the once protected wilderness, the profit they gain by selling that oil goes only to them, while the environmental damage is billed to the rest of humanity. You can see it as an invisible sales tax.

For every dollar you spend on gas, you and your children will be paying countless more for rising medical costs created by pollution. And pollution comes in all forms. From the city smog that gives children asthma to tainted sea food from oil spills that can cause cancer, the damage is boundless. That's not to mention the climate change that will endanger countless wildlife and cause increasingly severe weather.

Just last year, my home town was hit by a severe storm that uprooted entire rows of trees. Even the hundred year old Christmas tree in our park is gone. This is a place that normally has no storms at all, but that storm caused so much damage and a three day black out. Do you think the oil companies are going to pay for that? Nope. But what they will pay for are lobbyists to bribe the government to give them 1 trillion dollars in subsidies instead of investing in clean energy.

This black black heart of humanity is not the future we want for our children, but what can we do? The transition from fossil fuel to clean energy is a slow but necessary one, and you can help speed up the process but telling your government to stop wasting 1 trillion dollars per year on subsidizing fossil fuel. It is not a sustainable energy source and only idiots would keep throwing money at a dying resource when they could be using that money to fund renewable energy research. We shouldn't be trying to relive the bygone past of low gas prices, instead, we should be looking toward a clean and renewable future.

You can help now by visiting 350.org and click on GET INVOLVED and sign the end oil subsidies petition. Just think of how much we can accomplish with 1 trillion dollars for clean energy research instead of subsidizing oil.

This is a character concept for a story developed by Iain McCaig as part of his workshop at the Spectrum Fantastic Art Live convention.

It is a re-telling of Red Riding Hood, in a post-apocalyptic sci-fi setting.

Red is a brain-washed clone who's arm was harvested by the Originals.  Perhaps for cruelty or entertainment, the Originals replace the clone body parts with all manner of prosthetic limbs.

In this version, Red 3 is burdened by a life-crippling rusty hunk of metal. 

This is another interpretation of the same character: Red 3 - Character Concept by Wildweasel339

I guess having so much snow here in Canada is giving me some winter inspirations :giggle:

I also wanted to make a very special dedication to a dear sweet little girl named Jayla. Today is her birthday and she is turning 4! I'm sure she will be super excited tomorrow to recieve many toys and of course, ice cream cake hehe. She loves gangnam style and is quite a little dancing princess too. I would also like to dedicate this to her mother, Ashlee; ~LittleBabyButterfly She is a very kind a dear friend of mine. She has been with me through many rough points in my life and she also been there in many great, fun and epic times. She has helped inspire me with my art and I hope she will always be my friend. She will always be in my heart because a friend like her is rare to find. I hope you in enjoy my art little dear. :heart: :blackrose:

this was part of a series of animated paintings i wanted to post BUT youtube has this annoying habit of muting or taking down vids with copyright music so i think im gonna hold off on that for a while. it also gives me a chance to refine these paintings :D

i guess i'll just post the rest of these since the video wont see the light of day for a while :P

It is an original illustration. This character is a "man"!!
Even among the several existing statues of David, I found inspiration for this work in the consciously boyish/feminine carvings of Donatello’s “David” statues. How many times did I redraw their faces, were they any good? Even now I worry.

Don't ask me what in the hell the title means, just the first thing that popped in my head. :D (Big Grin)

I've had a god awful project holding me back for a long time now. Tonight was the first night I was able to start a painting. A half an hour into it I got another e-mail telling me it was time to go back to work. Yeah well that can wait. I wanted to finish a painting gosh darn it! :| (Blank Stare)

This one probably took 3 or 4 hours. Ref used (obviously). Just some random gal I found resting on my hd.

A portrait of an exceptionally cruel young lady who seduced a man of great wealth and killed him for his fortune. She sits here calmly reflecting upon her actions (for which she feels little, if no remorse).

Worked on this off and on for a few days... probably around 8 hours total. Photoshop 5.5.
