Under The Military Uniform


*grabs hand*

Lucia : What do you want ?! Let go of me now !

Glenn : I won't !

Lucia : Why ?! Do you want to add anything to what she said ??

Glenn : You don't have to listen to Lyval, she just keeps saying those things to irritate you.

Lucia : But she's right ! She is DAMN RIGHT !! I'm a monster !! Can you look in my eyes and tell me I'm not one of them, one of those that we kill everyday ?! No ! I'm a Xiphian, I have no right to be part of the Spathian Order, I just don't belong here...

Glenn : ... Even so, that's just so wrong.

Lucia : Come again ... ? Look into my eyes and tell me
what you see in front of you then.

Glenn : ... I don't see any monsters ... just a crying girl.

Lucia : ... You're annoying ... you just sound like him ...

As for the background story of the drawing, this is Lucia Altwade as she appears between ACT I and ACT II of 'Sylphids Vindicate'.

Just after the loss of both her lover and mother, and the discovery of her Xiphian nature, she joins the Spathian Order ( a special military created to kill demons and monsters coming from the alternate world, Xiphos ) under the advice of her ex-teacher Leon, who will supervise her later on. Her goal in this being to get stronger in order to avenge her loved ones.

Lucia's new powers were to be used by the Order in their fight against the Xiphian forces.
She was trained hard, and very quickly ranked in the top soldiers of the Order, finally earning the S-01-X rank (the strongest one) after only a year. She also gets surnamed the "Demon Maiden" inside the Order because of her Xiphian powers.

But because she is a Xiphian, not everyone inside the Order is pleased to see her, that's the case of another high ranked soldier, A-01-X Lyval Yu, that often picks fights with Lucia and considers her as one of the monsters they need to exterminate. Her crude words often hurt Lucia, who is reminded that she is no normal human, that she is the same kind of those that killed her beloved ones.

Hopefully, for her, some people inside the Order still want to side with her, that's the case of the young Glenn, who often tries to comfort her.


This is another take on one my older drawings

This is absolutely stunning. I keep looking back up at it thinking 'I could never do anything anywhere near this amazing, so I should just not write a critique because it'll make me seem like a pretentious douche.'
I love the colouring on her shirt and jacket. The contrast is amazing. I think you should add a little more dark into the shadows of her hair to help put some contrast in the top, because to me it's very, very bright.
I love the slight angle her head it at on her neck, but her neck and shoulders I think should be just a tad bit wider. Especially the left one, it looks smaller than her right.
Overall, I love the colours, and the details put into the teeth of the jacket and the neckchains

I really do not think I am able to comment on an image at this level... <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)"/> Particularly, my favorite style of art is manga, you could reproduce this style perfectly, both in terms of design and color. The brightness and shade that contains specially in tears, eyes and pendant are fantastic!! The bright colors fit very well. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":XD:" title="XD"/> You could well give life to this painting. I have no clue and nothing to add.
I loved your drawing, to me is a perfect 10.0!!
Congrats, you're a great artist!! <img src="…" width="38" height="15" alt=":hug:" title="Hug"/>
PS.: Sorry for bad englis. I Hope to see many of his drawings in this style!! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";P" title="Wink/Razz"/>

I'm wondering what a full view of her looks like with the complete uniform. But I absolutely am in love with this extremely good work.
