RO - Niffl by ruina RO - Niffl by ruina
...or at least I wanted to make it Niffl at first. It could be anything now.

Drawn with copic markers.

Disappointed that scanning messes up copic marker pics, but I'm not up to fixing this right now. ~_~;;

How in the world can you say this was messed up!? I mean, it's amazing, and the bg itself is stunning! You did SUCH and awesome job, and I'll say it again and again even if you don't need me to! This is amazing.

ruina Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2005   General Artist
I get mine when I go to Japan... ^^; But I know you can get them somewhere online too. =] I remember seeing a site before, just don't remember where... ^^; They're called copic markers. =x

Cotton-Keyk Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2005
The colors you chose give the picture a scary feeling! I love all the wrinkles you made on their torn clothing as well as the hair!
The kid back freaky.o_o; But the black things around...the magician I believe...are actually kind of cute.X3 *poke*
I also love how the backround is crooked and funky.owo It's soo nifty! How you colored the stones and the roofs is also really nifty!>w<
OoO And if the scanner truly messed this up, then it must be really purty!!@w@
Drakks Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2005
That's amazing! I love that little kid or whatever it is standing back there. Pic's stunning

kuroi-tsubasa906 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2005
You did all that with markers? O.o Awesome! I love the colors XD
plangkye Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
Incredible... o_o
SleepyDoodler Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2005  Hobbyist General Artist
Wowsers.... I tried experimenting with my drawing teacher's Copics once. She recommended them for my friend and me since we drew in the "anime-style". Haha.... twas fun...

But daaaang... It would require my own set and a loooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnngggg time before I can get anywhere near as good as that.

How many colors do you normally use in these pics? o.o
ruina Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2005   General Artist
I've never counted, so I don't know... O.o; But for this one, I was on a little ink shortage, so I tried to compensate for it by mixing a lot of the colors... which led to a further ink shortage, haha. ^^; The neat thing about copics are that when the ink's still wet, you can mix the colors together. I usually do that when I want to make a gradience for shading and lighting... but I discovered in this one that mixing completely unrelated colors for shading can yield some interesting results too... gotta get more ink to experiment, hee~. X3
evilplushie Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2005

and no thats not a pun
kat-reverie Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
this is brilliant! The coloring and shading is awesomne, especially for markers! I honestly thought at first that this was a CG ^_^ This is a REALKLY great work.
themebi Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2005
Holy.... crap, lol. I must admit, as I first glanced at this, I couldn't believe you colored this with markers at all. It's just so amazingly detailed! I so wish I could color with markers like that ; ; In any case, fantastic pic here! I really like the background and the look of the characters. This has to be the first RO fanart I've seen in awhile that's really caught my eyes, lol. ^^;

copicmarkers?! O_O that's awesome!! I have a question, what kind of papper did you use? o.o my copicdrawings never turn out soft x.x*faves*
ruina Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2005   General Artist
I usually just use plain printer paper... ^^; But for this one, I used one of those watercolor papers. =x The paper itself is pretty thick, so the ink didn't seep through (unless you have an ink spill XD; ). Only problem is, it's huge. ^^; It took so much time and ink to fill in all of the white spaces. ~_~;; But I think it's definitely worth a try! Copic markers could be like watercolor in a sense (depending on how you use it), so the paper works perfectly. =3

edchan Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2005
O_O OMFG WOW! THATS NUTS! We don`t have niff anymore on our server =_=;; Well we still have it just we can`t warp there and we can`t save there. ITS SO STUPID! They got rid of it cause they claimed it was unfair ? o.0 WTF IS THEIR PROBLEM?! I LUV THIS PIC! WOW!
ruina Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2005   General Artist
You play RO too? Ooooo, which server? =3
I believe we can't warp or save at niff on our server too... I remember on my first (and only XD; ) visit, I tried to save, but it didn't work... =/
edchan Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2005
XD I KNOW! ITS SOO DUMB! Its like no sorry your not aloud to go to a place to train because even though its the best place to train we think it will be unfair.. ya okay we make no sense but thats okay @___@;;; XD I`m on PorjectRO! How about you!? ^_^
ruina Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2005   General Artist
ProjectRO...? O.o;; I've never heard of it... I'm on iRO, on loki (and sometimes) on chaos. ^^;
So Niffl is a good place to train... I've never trained there before. The only time I visited that place was just to take a look around. XD; I'm just surprised I didn't die from the visit, ehehe. ^^;
edchan Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2005
XD well I got a FS priest and a natural crit sin with a sader in our guild sooo the chances that we`ll die are pretty low. I`ve never played anything other then PRO. Maybe I should come out of my shell?
