Totally not my usual cheery art. XD;;; For Kidchan's contest for her original characters Adam and Runar~ I went a little crazy! I think I was feeling nostalgic for old school CLAMP. (finish X please!!) Took about 4-5 hours for sketching, lineart, color planning, seven hours for coloring, four hours for details and touching up... So, about 15 hours over 3 days! I sketched the drawing by hand at first then did lineart in Painter 6.1, and then colored it in one layer with an Intuos2 tablet.
The hardest part was actually planning color for this one actually--it could've really been easy to make the red and blue look reaaally bad together. XD; Also, my sister said that what was most interesting about this piece to her was that she wasn't really sure what was going on in it so it made her think a lot about it, and I take it as a huge compliment~~
EDIT: DOHH!! I hate it when I come back to art I was satisfied with like 2 days earlier and find that I hate it!! DX Maybe it just depends on my mood?
oh no! what happened??..... but wow! awesome! the color is breath taking... the characters are well done... and is that an angel wing? great work! i really like this... as a matter of fact, i'm gonna fav this! ^_^
