Katana by Neomae Katana by Neomae
A Katana (almost) pin-up for Brooklyn ;)

I think she is the most beautiful femal character introduced to the Gargoyles universe so far ("Sacrifice" would be my second favourite).

This is my first attempt in gradient shading and working with coloured outlines. Critique is much appreciated!

she is so beautiful

I'm being completely honest. This is THE most beautiful interpretation of Katana I have seen by far. Great job, I am thrilled by your work! :) (Smile) 
You wouldn't happen to be willing to post a tutorial, would you?

Awesome work. I must admit though, I died a little inside when I found out about Katana. Part of me was happy that Brooklyn finally found his girl, but most of me was sad, because now there's no possibility of him dating a human (like, say, me!).

It's about time for him, yeah. Too bad Brock (Pokemon) cannot find one himself.
EternalSurvivor Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2011
.... what does brock have anything to do with Gargoyles?
Deviantroid Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2011  Student Digital Artist
There's nothing except that Brooklyn USED to get rejected by female gargoyles while Brock gets rejected by women or gets injured by Misty, Max, and Croagunk. Sadly, Brock is alone.
EternalSurvivor Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2011
I really don't give a flip about Brock. The fact that you brough him up in a conversation which has nothing to do with him simply annoys me.

I just found out that my uncle had my Gargoyles DVD for the past three months when he came back from London and I'm so happy to finally watch my childhood show after 12 years.

Brooklyn and Katana really do belong together. Great jobn btw. She is BEAUTIFUL!!!

Katana kicks ass and so do your artistic skills. Hope to see more Gargs in the future. ^_~
TheOffbeatAlchemist Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2010
Perfect. I wish I had your skills.
DABurgosART Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2010
i love her expression.
her eyes are beautiful.
myuutsuCMCE Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2010
This is impresive. :+fav:ed!
I like the colors and gradients used, illumination is really cool. Outlines are not out of my attention.
This render shows her beauty and attractive. I like her feet too. 8D
Rodlox Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2010
quite nice!

the feet and toes make me wonder if she's more arboreal than most gargoyles (and-or able to hang upside down)

splendid work. particularly the beak.
GargoyleGoddess21 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2010  Professional General Artist
Beautiful! And for your first gradient shading, it looks wonderful!
Threvlin Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Once again, gargoyles proves that beaks can be very good looking. Great work on this, love it.
Dragonangelx002 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2010
Wow Brook, shes a hard 10. *claps* good job!
KaijuDuke Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2010
Brook is a VERY lucky garg...I wonder if Lex will ever find the garg gal, or guy, of his dreams? Poor little dude's the only single guy left...Unless he found someone in the Slave Labor comic series I'm unaware of, XD

NinjaMisha Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2009
Beautifully done! I love the pose ^_~
Innocent and yet seductive.
The coloring is lovely :)
ghostlymarionette Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2009

Bengges Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2009
Oha, hübsch...gefällt mir sehr!:D
Ich sollte öfter reinschauen hier!
nesilverwing Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2009
She looks absolutely lovely. ^_^
K9-The-First Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2009
....:plotting: Oh this is great! I can just picture her doing this for Brook, and just when he gets into it, she gives him a slap! ^_^
Epantiras Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm not very familar with this particular style of coloring (half gradients, half cel/anime style) so I can't give you specific tips, but my first thought is that you've improved a lot since your last pics and that this pic in particular looks very "professional", I mean that I would not be surprised to see it printed on a DVD or comic book cover or some other kind of gargoyles promotional material :D
IngwellRitter Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Lovwly Katana, nice work :love:
Kaoru-Himura-chan Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2009
She looks so beautiful because you made her so!In the comic version she isn't as pretty drawn but you put the character to justice and made an excellent rendition of her! love it
srg1 Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
She's very beautiful!!!!!
nuriaabajo Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2009
she looks beautiful. And great drawing!
ritam Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2009  Professional Filmographer
Darling this is a neat coloration and baddass drawing! Great for a first attempt ;) not that I had any doubt about your skills ^^ :clap:
Starlioness Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2009
dude,I almost thought you drew this.. since you Katana is white.. her blue is so light, she's almost white..

*kicks ritam into drawing her version of Brook's family again* XD
ritam Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2009  Professional Filmographer
Eheh, well I was so surprised to see they picked up a coloration so close to my version too! ^^ but of course it couldn't be just the as same as mine in design.
I'm justy sorry to say I'm not inspired to draw any gargoyles anymore, and maybe any fanart at all. I need something new.
Avathae-Mangaka Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
great job hun
ArtbyMaryC Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist

STAN4US Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2009
Another female Gargoyle to love and welcome into the fandom. :)

Excellent work drawing and coloring her. She is gorgious. ;)
garella27 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2009
I love it!!!!:love: she is really beautifull!!!!=D
BeckyRider1485 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2009
She really is beautiful. And beautiful job Neomae. I have to admit that when I saw her for the first time on Gargoyle wikia I liked her but I really didn't like the way they drew her though. I have seen alot of fan-art work here on Deviant that drew her way better that should have been used from that in the comics.

You know when you really think about it, Katana is not only Brooklyn's mate and true love but has also helped him mature as well.
Silvolf Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
Nice work, I love her face, she's so pretty!
Deviantroid Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2009  Student Digital Artist
I like her a lot, but so do I with Sacrifice. Why is it the pink characters get hurt or killed?
