Also known as "041:Lucky" from the Art50 I'm planning on doing.

Holy shit. This took forever. I was sitting bemoaning that I couldn't draw on the PC, and then this idea hit. I poked it in PS and damn, it worked okay straight onto the PC.

And then I could not leave it.

Darryn meeting the SunGoddess. I cannot stress enough about Download View because... I worked hard.

ooh, so this is Yorolaie's dad! And Yorolaie's... grandmother, the Sun Goddess? Pff I'm trying to keep all the characters (and countries and whatnot) from this universe straight, but it's tough when the info's scattered around so many different places... lmao is there a wiki out there, or an archive, etc? I want to read more!

Question: is the Sun Goddess symbolically pregnant with the actual sun or something, or does Darryn have another sibling on the way?
drazzi Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This is Yorolaie's daddy - as well as many other of Ku's chars - and Thanatos' husband.

Erm... okay you asked for it lol. Ramble ahead. Feel free to skip... The SolarGoddess could be thought of as their grandmother I suppose.
Darryn was 'mortal' born into his race by two normal Scintillian parents, but he was one of a few rare members of the race who glowed naturally from birth. This meant he was 'blessed', and he did tend to be very lucky, but it was just a saying really as far as Darryn was concerned. When Darryn grew up and older though, he received some visions from the SolarGoddess like above, where She told him She had chosen him and HAD blessed him. In fact, She wanted him to become Her Demigod.
Darryn didn't particularly care for it, and wanted to know why him when there were more worthy people. She said that all the people on his world where Her children, and so he was Her son too, and the one She had chosen.
He kinda turned Her down, but then She worked fate to make him have to agree to Her demands. BUT THAT'S ANOTHER STORY... Darryn doesn't get on with Her much.

She's symbolically pregnant, not so much WITH the sun, but since She is like a sun, She's constantly giving birth to light, warmth and light.

I don't really have a wiki or anything. I was making one, but I'm just too ... nervous and uncomfortable really sharing my creatives, so I got rid of it. Ku can usually ramble about my stuff though.

And oh god that was long, sorry? :x

ooh wow thank you for all this info! That's really neat... but aww, I'm sorry you're nervous sharing stuff about your story! It's very interesting.

Thanks again!

I've seen this loads of times, Sallie, but goddamn. Everytime I come to your devaccount I have to open this up and stare for a little while. I thought I favorited this a long fucking time ago, okay! But yeah, just... wow. There's so much detail and her glowing complexion, and moooovement, definitely. I mean, just... it's really, really beautiful and it looks so effortless! TALENT I SAY!
drazzi Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
So FAR from effortless @_@

But I'm glad it still gets love, I did work a long time on it and it turned out well =D Thank you, Mistress.

Thank you very much ^^

You worked so hard on this and it looks brilliant, the vibrancy of it all, the posing, the emotion and everything. You got movement, and delicate things, and so many little details! You know Ku loves this so much. I love Darryn's hair, all the little strokes! And his scars *_*
drazzi Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ku comment <3333 I am most happy now <3333

I'm glad if I got movement. My work normally feels so stiff to me, so any movement would be a good thing <3

Man, halfway through that hair I was like "AGHH NOT GONNA WORK" but then it came together :D It's siiiilky.
CreatoreMagico Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
<3 Silky Darryn hair definitely worked! I hate when you are half way through something and you have to see it through to see if it works or not T_T! Sucks.

Truly IS epic, good lord!

Loving the interaction between the Goddess and Darryn, the glow that she emanates landing on his skin, lighting up those wings of hers (love that part by the way), she really does look ethereal!

The background really fits too, as hazy and desolate as a scorching canyon.

The additions of jewellery and piercings must have taken ages, I'm sure I would have just given up half way through, so I have so much admiration for your seeing this through to the end, it was really worth it I think :3!
drazzi Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you so much, m'dear <333 It makes me happy when one of my awesome artist loves comments

The jewels were the easiest bits :D Oddly.
mel-bot Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2009
I loooove the colouring on the wings. They're so well lit <3
drazzi Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You won't believe how long it took to MAKE them well lit instead of.. well.. dark and crappy.

Thank you honey <3
dustbudde Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2009
Still so much love for how those wings changed, evolved and are just awesome! Also congrats on actually getting The Goddess to look like she's glowing. That comes across wonderfully. And the jewelery design! You can tell you really did spend a well deserved amount of time on getting the details there nicely with the proper drape of the chains and all.

My one real critique would be the hand on Darryn's chest. She's turned toward us, he's partially turned away from the audience... her hand should be following his body more so all we should be seeing really are her index finger and thumb. The way it is seems twisted very unnaturally compared to their relative positions. And, yes, I have a hand fetish XD Also, if I may, harsher lighting contrasts on Darryn would probably add to the Goddess' feeling of being a light source with his back in much deeper shadow.

Definitely an epic work ^__________^
drazzi Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I had SO much trouble with her stupid hand, for srs. It's not one of my 'tried and tested hand positions' so I was drawing, erasing, drawin, erasing forever on it. Was never truly happy with it /: What you're saying makes sense, I just couldn't get it working xD

Thank you for the uber comment Rini <3
Jadeica Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2009

drazzi Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you <33 Just a little O: makes it worth the effort (:
