SoulCalibur VI: Xianghua(collab with reikakukoto)
Hi there everyone! I've been busy labbing with my character and creating customs and generally having a blast with Soul Calibur VI.
It's been slightly delayed but here is my collab with the fabulous reikakukoto ! She did the lineart for this piece and I colored it. Be sure to check her stuff out!

Xianghua in SCVI has an awesome design which the both of us love-- especially the 2p colors so we decided to draw her.

I really like how this turned out too, it's refreshing to work with someone on a piece for once.

Follow us on twitter (mine is @raphireart) for more SCVI stuff, including custom chars and WIPs. reikakukoto even has waterproof stickers of SC characters available. Come have a look!
SoulcaliburVI: Seong Mina for Qanba Obsidian stick
Got right back to work after the SCVI beta last weekend and managed to churn out this piece! The arcade stick format can be found on my artstation as usual:…

WIPs can be found on my twitter so follow me if you're interested!
I also use Instagram.

I'm on both platforms as Raphireart.

Hi guys! I have a twitter account now, and will be active on it!
 Follow me if you use twitter!
I'll mostly be posting Soul Calibur fanart and commissions there in the near future, and it will be updated with WIPs and sketches.
The Yeast Beast and the Well-bread Girl

I figured I'd put some concept stuff on here, since all I have up are pinups and stuff.

Here's a Battle Baker with her Yeast Beast-- a dragon that can serve as her oven-- if he isn't feeling too hungry himself. She serves up batches of food and improvised bread armor(they can be pretty durable and soak up quite a bit of damage in a pinch!) to the front lines with the help of her messenger pigeons(if they aren't too full from gorging themselves) who send in bulk orders to her mobile bakery setup.
If you're an enemy soldier and are thinking of attacking the supply lines, beware for she can batter you as well as she can make a batter :P

Rough sketches are on my artstation:…

If you could, that be awesome! I’d like to know the prices and maybe then, I will try to ask in the future :)

also, I wanna ask, any advice on improving in color or lineart. For a growing artist like me to try? :) if you don’t mind me asking?
ill show you one of my best works I could do.

What I did to improve was:

I started out copying photos from a blank canvas. I did that a lot. I also learnt anatomy by going to life drawing sessions and copying from anatomy books. Then I supplemented the above by drawing stuff from real life. My journey is pretty much chronicled here on my DA gallery since I posted a lot of these studies sans the traditional stuff.

Thanks for the compliment and I hope I helped out some!
