Encounter by shadowfire-x Encounter by shadowfire-x
A violent encounter among a burning city between Ikusu and Rioni.. a gift for :iconrioni-riishu: . Took a very long time.. WELL over 40 hours, and about 23 layers.. XD but very fun... and I felt very inspired making this.. <3

EDIT - Added Ixy's shoulder stripes, and a (terrible) cityscape to the background, worked on Ri's eyes a bit.

I was looking through old art here and there and saw this... Man, this is a trip down memory lane! Those days were so fun. We may have come a long way art-wise since back then, but the amount of work is still evident. I love this old work and all the memories that go with it. And I still love the holes in Ikusu's armor. I suddenly feel like painting a throwback to old characters and RPs.

A quick look at the thumbnail always gives me the impression that he just bitch-slapped her xD;

This is sooo AWESOME!! 8D Dynamic!! Not only does it have more than one person, they're in interesting poses, with well-done perspective, real interaction, and surrounded by a full background!

Ri's face and armor are so amazing here. Her face and her hair, too.

Looking at the comments, I guess this COULD look really cool with a busted helmet, but...but...I think I love Iku's hair too much to see it covered up too xD

I love the fiery look of her wings and the lighting they give off!

Really, really, really really good!!

EEE! Thank you so much! And, lol, bitchslap. I wanted to make a follow-up picture that says "6 months later" and has them rolling around together under bedsheets... XDDD

lol I haven't seen you in forever xD anyways, this looks totally nice ~ it's so epic, though I feel it'd look even more epic with a busted helmet on Ix or something.
btw love the wings <3

Thanky! Rightfully, maybe he should have a broken helmet on.. but.. I love drawing his hair too much.. XD

EEEE! *HUGS* You drew them! <3 <3 <3 I still think you leave eyes a tad undefined- like they need just a hint of outline. Love the background. :3 The angle of the saber ROCKS, and I really like the flow of Ri's hair. :D Ikusu looks like he's getting ready to rip her face off. XD

Oh, but later, he'll be eating her face off... ;D

And, I will go in and fix the eyes at some point.. since I also forgot his shoulder stripes.. XD how could I have missed something like that? fail.. XD
And, so very glad you like it <3 *GLOMP*
