Aednenao: Rin Rensuh by Ahkward Aednenao: Rin Rensuh by Ahkward
Commission for Jenova-Cells, my Spanish Translator for Naor! :'D

Rin Rensuh is a wicked hunter and has had thousands of years to perfect her skills. Originally human, she made a deal with Tuhk for demi-god status and now serves him. Her life will be as long as Tuhk wants it to be, and she has no qualms being at his beck and call.

** Text is Naoru, not just gibberish. I worked 5 years on it and had some help from my linguistic friends to make it logical. ouo However I'll only give the English version here. Obviously largely inspired by Asiatic art. XD Also note she isn't using standard archery, it's much closer to Kyudo in terms of form. I've always loved how graceful it looks compared to western archery.

Large Font Naoru text: Her kiss is more dangerous than her arrow.

Small Font Naoru Text: Rin Rensuh is the first Miyape and was killed by her sister, Zai Rensuh Zaihkt. Master Archer, she never stops hunting.

Completely traditional! Pencil, black ink and white ink. (Photoshop used to edit the crappy scan)




You can read her story (and her sister Zai) here:
 Naori Myth: Magic, Miyape and Zaihkt by Ahkward

Facts about Rin:

Aries - April 1
Female - Bisexual
Younger sister

  • She is the sister of Zai Rensuh, first Zaihkt of Naor, while Rin is the first Miyape of Naor.
  • She was pursued by many men, however prefers women for company. She bisexual, and would use this to her advantage to get what she wanted. Due to this she can be a bit vain.
  • She was once human, and during her human life was a hunter, she was one of few female hunters as at that time in Naor history women were not traditionally hunter, but rather farmers, artists and carpenters.
  • Rin and Zai once lived in a village called Jangk, now ruins.
  • Rin was killed by Zai in a fight after Rin killed someone from Zai's village. After that, Tuhk offered Rin eternal life as a miyape in return for serving him. Rin took this opportunity to be able to harass Zai and other Naori forever and thus became the first miyape. Since then she's been revived several times by Tuhk, so she does die from time to time, but is revived each time.
  • Rin now lives mainly in Ikt, which is also a city of ruins. Nobody knows why of all places she chose Ikt or if Tuhk assigned her there.
  • She has the ability to hide her miyape form and look human. She usually uses this when she's gathering information, or looking for some attention for the night. (Yes because she's still active in that way). However few people know what she looks like because she will kill the person right after. Miyape survive on souls and blood and she will lure people away and alone, have her way and kill them afterwards leaving no witness. This makes her one of the most dangerous beings and prolific killers in Naor ( she goes after men and women).
 Rin has always had a sort of soft spot for Aros, not in a romantic way, more of a curious way and routinely harasses him. He is one of the few men she hasn't killed after a night together and it's thought do to her finding him interesting or Tukh ordering her not to.

I love it! The contrast made by the wings and softened by the BG is brilliant. I also love the Naoru text. The usage of negative space, as well, is phenomenal.

I almost can't believe this is all traditional. Your lettering is so spot-on with the spacing and straight columns, it almost looks typed. :ohnoes: And the moon! Your lining is so steady, I'm jealous. XD My most favorite parts are the lettering, the calligraphy, the shading, and, of course, all of Rin herself. :dummy:

I'm glad I could commission you in some way to do more Naor artwork. It seemed like a win-win situation at the time, and pretty much is. :> I'll be sure to keep you on your toes with other Naor characters. >D

AH I simply measured it out and did it before shading it, was very careful to keep it precise. The steady hand comes from practice. x-x lots of it.

Aha, well, each one of these would be about 1 or 2 chapters worth of text since each is averaging about 30-45$. Once I get further along, I'll make a journal with a credit/tab master list. XD I'd be more than happy to keep doing these. It helps me draw my characters (since I rarely get to other than comic work and I can get commissions done! Win win I think. u_u

I'll keep commissioning you for more Naor art instead of money, then. : D I love seeing stuff about the comic, and I think this is a good way to see more characters that aren't get as much attention yet. :>

Awesome! Well with that, you are goo to go for Chapter 1 too. It'll be a bit, unless you want to look at the script and start editing dialogue instead from it?

Awesome. I'll link you to the google drive. I'm in the middle of editing the script, so you'll see a :END HERE:, that will be where the new and old versions begin. I'll note you in a minute.
