Please excuse my inability to title at all, I gave up.

I started this... over three years ago sometime, and had the marker paper with lineart all ready sat about through two house moves, and never did colour it. The cats have sat on this so many times... BUT I finally got around to it last week! And then fought the scanner. (I'm not sure I won. Also it's kinda huge even shrunk...). And the markers took the creases out, whoop!

It's very........ peach. I'm not sure why I decided to be peach. Oh well?

ANYWAY I love making hair nonsensically shiny, heh. And the base layer on Clef's hair is grey because he's OLD. XD

Both the portraits are redraws - Umi's ACTUALLY not a manga panel, though there is a very similar one near the end of the last volume, she's from one of the Nakayoshi title pages which is in the first materials collection, and Clef's from the OVA, I literally played it and paused on the image I wanted, sketched, and then watched the rest of it, because I love the OVA far too much and decided it was a good excuse to watch the whole thing again. (Yes, I remember cackling about it vividly three years later. I am a goose.) I just wanted an image with both of them grown up and in the same style to use as a background on my laptop! .......and now my laptop's a completely different shape screen so I've also done myself a highly edited version where Clef's about two inches lower, heh.

Copic ciao markers and multiliner on some marker paper I had three years ago I have no idea which type it was oops, plus windsor and newton white ink for a few touches, and gimp to edit after my scanner mangled it~

(Edited to put in the actual reference for Umi when I realised I had it wrong!)
Trust in you
We have a new scanner, after a couple of years (!!!) without much access to one... or much art happening. Oh well.

This is pencil and copic multiliner on random printer paper because I randomly wanted to draw something for my favourites~ then the new scanner and I had a long and extended argument about it picking up the colour, therefore this is also quite edited in gimp ^^;;;;;;;;;;;; (the box - and the background in the box - are technically metallic silver pencil. I gave up on trying to preserve that.)

I'd say it has some meaning or story behind it/the title but that would be a lie, I was just trying to find something better than 'blerghul' which is what the file's called XD;;



United Kingdom
I'm dragon of winter nights, down for short.

Transformative Works Policy: I'm perfectly happy for anyone to create any form of transformative work based on mine (after all, I'm doing the same with all my fanwork!); credit would be good, a heads-up so I can go find it would be lovely. (Just please don't post my original work places without permission - with the single exception of art to tumblr, then just please give credit and a link back~!)

I'm not going to be using the journal thing regularly. If I DO feel an urge to blog, it goes on dreamwidth.

I write fanfic (kept at ffn and the ao3 mostly, they aren't mirrors yet) more than I draw or update the blog anyway, though one can't tell from the pace of my updates. XD (My chapter length tends to the ridiculous.) And frequently I'll do one to avoid doing the other. Yay, procrastination! I do bounce onto tumblr a lot at the moment, because it takes very little brain.

Other than that, I read too much, write too much, and play at learning far too many languages. I'm learning to play the flute. I'm also eternally in love with Magic Knight Rayearth, giant robots, dragons, magic, and swords. (Making it little wonder I adore Rayearth, really.)

One day, I will learn to fanvid, and expand my fannish obsessions in yet another direction. XD

Current Residence: England
Favourite style of art: art nouveau/manga
Wallpaper of choice: Clef~
Favourite character: Clef (from Magic Knight Rayearth)
Still having issues with loading devart - the sudden spree of faving and so on is because I realised I can see things at my grandmother's house, because she has better internet than we do ^^;;;;;;;;; Flailed through over 1000 deviations in half an hour............ so! I am here. Sort of. Sporadically. I shall get to messages and things when I can!
