My secret Santa gift exchange for Deamond89, of her character Narwa.

I am really happy with the final, however there is one thing that erks me so if you want to know u can read my rant :P Other then that hope your happy, Deamond, your characters are all lovely!

Little art rant, if u care to read.
Once again the sketch and the final turned out nothing alike. In a good way though, I really liked the sketch but I feel this is a better respsnation of her character, in the original sketch she looked older and less anime. My main beef with this was that I just for the life of me could not get the eyes right, now I want to point out I spent a good 4 hours just on re editing the face and eyes, even re inking the sketch didn’t work and the sketched face looks great and when I gave up and for the hell of it gave her close eyes it was clear to me she was always meant to have closed eyes, because it fits the whole feel. So I am happy with this direction however from an artists point of view it just drives me nuts I only came to it by the fact I just couldn’t draw the eyes I wanted. I guess these things happen if you spend too much time working on one thing, and haven’t drawn in like a year ><

Anywho cc loved <3

It's very nice. I love the motion in the picture; it's very natural. Sort of caught in the middle of a private dance, for no other reason than because she feels like humming. The outfit also looks wonderful, with all the frills and stuff. ^^

lol..poor cody. looks good though. I'll have to go check out this person's gallery, because the design of her characters seem interesting. Very nice colors, it's very soft. ok, this might be weird to say, but it has to be said, because i just said it out loud to myself. I absolutely love the coloring of her belly. it is very nice coloring. don't know why, i just noticed it how well it was done and i had to share. :)

I'm glad you said that because I recoloured her belly so many times >< the inly think I don't like about the picture is because I changed the angle of her face it looks like her head is too small >< but Im glad you like it <3

Aw, I like it. Very gentle. Somehow, the curves on every object remind me of the art neuveau (sp?) borders people used to put around images.
