Ice Lotus by Achiru-et-al Ice Lotus by Achiru-et-al
I figured that Raven deserved some screentime after Xei's halloween spree regarding... um... Sailormoon... anyway.

Raven's fun to dress prettily =D Ria agrees with me. First we were going to take Xei's shirt and alter it, but Xei got angry, and I guess I decided Raven doesn't dress often in blue tones (there was maybe one or two other images).

Done in watercolors, pencil, watercolor pencils, and digital border/background tone because the cheap watercolor paper would've been all wrinkled and scanner-unhappy if I painted it all blue.

Raven belongs to me.

I This is an amazing peice of artwork. I think she looks really beautiful! And the color of the background and her clothes helps bring out the shine of her hair. Wish I could get a copy of this to hang on my wall.

:XD: I see you're a Naruto fan? Anyway, this is watercolor, so there's not much pencil coloring there at all, but its all about learning to see. How many tones do you see in skin? How to mix that array of colors (for example, the skin nearer the light source is more saturated than the shadows)? Are you willing to risk playing around with your technique and try something new (darker colors or go for more contrast)?

Screen time? For Raven??? Imagine that... the title character gets screen time ^_^ LOL, I 'm just messing. It's beautiful, but it is unusual to see her in cool tones instead of warm. Very nice!

It's hilarious how Raven kind of dropped into the background.

Thanks! Yes, Raven usually is in warm tones... that's probably why I was kind of conflicted as I was painting it blue...

No, we just happen to be online at the same time. =D

I'm in... what time zone am I in... I think its pacific... since I'm in Vancouver right now and I'm usually on for a few minutes in the morning before class, then after dinner to around 8-9pm give or take if I have lots of homework.

:XD: Yes, Raven usually goes for the cute look. This kind of picture I normally give to Creation, but its fun to switch roles once in a while, or wear a new outfit. (although, I avoid emo Xei because it's not fun when he gets overboard)

And yes, you can do fanart! Just send me a note when you've got it up online somewhere ;D

Yeah. It's fun to be poor. It gives you an excuse to make art with cheap and random objects like leaves and rocks and shells and old school art supplies. And cloth, napkins and gum wrappers. You can even draw on the wall and do a mural =D You don't have to be professional to do that.

fadsa wATERCOLORS? D: omg caps lock is on.

That's super amazing, I can't get water colors to work for me at all. You and =Marshroots blow me out of the water, I CANT figure out how you DO IT >3< Anyway, yay for Raven screentime ;D

I DIDNT FAVORITE THIS JUST BECAUSE IT'S BLUE I PROMISE. It's really well rendered. I love her hair and her expression is all serene-like. And I like how she kinda just. .. is part of the baground too. It really brings the picture together it does. And dividing the picure in to three parts with those lines is hawt. Three is my eyes' favorite number.

Wow, Marshroot's watercolors are amazing (and better quality than mine, which I kidnapped from my high school art room, and my friends don't know what to get me for holiday events, therefore I have a nice collection of cheap watercolor paper from that). I watercolor on whim. I kind of wish I had the fancy white paint that you can put on top that really is white, or the rubber stuff that you can peel off to keep the paper color and doesn't rip the paper (I'm sorry I'm so poor) and thicker paper that doesn't dry all bumpy and unscannable. But, such is life, and we make due with what we have. =D

I apologize for the rant there. I haven't painted traditionally in SO long its really nostalgic >>; University does not give students enough time to sit down and have a nice session of painting for the sake of painting. Unless you're in a fine arts program or something... which I'm not...

I love her hair too. I've noticed it's gone through different stages, where it starts to act like Zy's hair, then I'm reminded by older drawings of what her hair originally looked like, and she kind of had straight bangs. For some reason there was a time when almost everyone's hair started to whoosh to the right like Zy and Xei's. Weird. Then it goes back to normal.

Do you see her wings? =D I was hoping someone would notice.

xD Don't be sorry. I just wish I could use watercolors. You know, you can, like, use white jell pen? :D For the white parts. That's what Frankie (marshroots) does.

My people's hair does what they want it to. D; I can't draw the same thing twice, seriously.

asduibewfbi now that you said something about it, I see them D: That's really cool. 3: Arg at me for not paying attention earlier.

I have the white-out that you can roll because its dry already. But it makes invariable lines. I don't have a white gel pen =P

That used to drive me crazy in pre-school/elementary. I had a temper tantrum because I couldn't reproduce a drawing I did earlier.

Yes. You have no idea how absolutely wonderfully nostalgic it is to be able to do that, because IT DOESN'T WORK DIGITALLY. And I've been working digitally for some time, since University hasn't given me a break, or rather, I haven't forced myself to make time to break, and do some painting for the sake of painting (it takes more time to set up and clean up).

Splattering is FUN. =D

Hehe, the clean up and setup is the most time consuming part, well, that and school. I know how ya feel, I never have much chance to draw for myself when taking courses.

I used to love spattering paint everywhere, it was the best part of the whole painting process in my opinion :D
