Blackbird - OOC by shilin Blackbird - OOC by shilin
Hello, sorry for not being able to upload anything worthwhile for so long. This picture is of Veloce and Keritzel in a storyline that I made n years ago, I just sketched it one day and decided to colour it (because I had nothing else to colour... I am too scared to colour the other piece)

Originally there were a lot more things I wanted to do with this picture, but because of time constrains, I coloured it too early and all of those stuffs went out the window ): oh well

I try to get out of my habit for using very little contrast and not rely on cheating so much to blend everything. THE QUEST CONTINUES


EDIT: sorry, forgot to give due credits: textures used from cgtextures [link] , and thanks to :iconevahlis: and :iconjc-of-the-redflame: for help ;_;

EDIT2: AS IT IS TRUE WITH MOST OF MY PICTURES TAGGED "BLACKBIRD", THE ACTUAL MANGA ALMOST HAS NO RELATION TO MY ILLUSTRATIONS AT ALL AT ITS CURRENT STAGE SO DON'T ASK ME WHY

Oddly enough, one of my favorite things in this picture is the blood splatter up in the front. I find it extremely difficult to get the movement of blood, let alone liquid, to remain fluid in motion. It's quite challenging. C:

6-winged, badass, uber-sword wielding Keri? I want to see this in the Manga soooooo bad. (but if I start going by how much the story advances per week, and how long it would take to make the plot head this way, it'll take years *cries*)

If I had to pick somebody to be the manga artist for the novl series I'm writing know that it'd be you. First person I've commented on... your art is pretty darn amazing. Love how you can still critique yourself even though to others it looks pretty perfect.

You are right about this being OOC. :laughing: Veloce as the damsel in distress and Keritzel as the mighty savior... Mind-boggling, but something that all of us secretly hoped for. :D

yes, his was from when I didn't have a set storyline for my characters. This one came before I settled on the current story instead, that's why they are the same characters
