WHEEEEEEEE :is now :zombie::

First time to take foreshortening seriously. Don't know how successful this was, but for where I am ability-wise, I'm proud. There's no color pics of Zorin to be found, so I went with what I could find from the OAV. I decided that her "gimp" eye is actually just ridiculously dilated, so I left a ring of iris around it. Those tattoos... I swear to god, this is why it takes forever for Hirano to write another chapter. If I didn't scribble (haha), it would've taken me more time just on that one part than the entire rest of the pic.

I like the fire. It was just a doodle that I was smudging around and it turned into a dragon looking thing. yay Vikings!

Anyway, the title comes from a song by Symphony X that we used for our Hellsing walk-on at Ikkicon (earned Best Walk-On). The whole cd is spectacular! Paradise Lost. BUY IT! The concert was fucking awesome!!! :headbang:

I listened to a nice little playlist full of Symphony X, Black Sabbath, Rammstein, Disturbed, NIN, Megadeth, and some KoRn. Mmm...

As the (second) English voice of Zorin, I must say this is phenomenal. She is not easy to make 'attractive' and she maintains all her ferocity, strength and power - and she also actually looks pretty! The contour and perspective are also great. Props, props, props!

Excellent work on this!
By the way, try Cyborg Attack - Alptraum Leben.

Thanks so much, both for the comment and the band. I'll be sure to check them out! I love new bands :D

"Alptraum Leben" means "living nightmare". I think, it is good theme song for Zorin or for whole Millenium.

This has to be one of the best Zorin fanarts I've ever seen! She looks fantastic, really pretty. :love: The pose is very dynamic and peppy. Great work on the colouring and shading! :clap:

Nice pic its really good. I wish i could draw half as well. You draw her much better looking than how she looks in the manga.

Great pic! What helped me with foreshortening is the purchase of some 40+ joint action figures. Spider-man is a good generic male figure. Hard to find a generic female though...

I'll have to keep that in mind. I tried using those drawing figures (you know, the wood ones), but I just couldn't get a good feeling with them. I'll try it again, though. Thanks for the info!

The wood ones make nice decoration but aren't that posable =)

DUDE, you're fast! O_O Got this pic done in no time flat, ha ha.
I do like the background, sometimes I think the smudged look doesn't work, but for this pic it looks great. :D
The fore-shortening looks like a success to me, especially on her right arm!
And you did awesome on her tats. ^_^ And her hair looks much more gorgeous than Hirano could ever do. ^_^

:heart:

She's just not Zorin without her tats, is she?

I'm not that fast... I just had a day and a half off from work and no car. It all depends on how much I want to draw/finish something, really. The severe lack of Zorin fanart made me sad... and that so many of them are shoujo Zorin...

Point has been made...
chaos-shadow's avatar
WHAT!? I've never seen a shoujo Zorin fanart before!!! Lol... I kind of want to go searching DA for that now... seeing as I haven't really seen ANY Zorin art... indeed... your point has been made. ><

Dude... for me to even finish my little chibi things... the fastest I've ever done is 3 days. V___V For a full blown piece like that... takes me like... a month or two... I am that slow. V_V So for any piece to take a day and a half is like... GOD SPEED! XD

You made her look much sexier than Hirano ever did.

Somehow, she ended up bishounen... It wasn't intentional, I swear. I just drew dudewithboobs.

Oh I think she looks great. I hope you didn't think I meant she looked *too* girly.

Oh, nono. I'm making fun of my inability to draw ugly things...
