Carciphona - Duel by shilin Carciphona - Duel by shilin
Like always: Blackbird vs Veloce from my webcomic Carciphona

I always wanted to draw something with them fighting, but once again I went overboard and made it too neat/clean and lost the force it had in the rough Q__Q

I've drawn a lot of sketches of them fighting in the past but I didn't like any of them. I drew this after I realized Chopin's prelude in g#- was also called the duel which was totally appropriate, and I guess having a rhythm/pace to the fight in the form of good music helped the choreography enough to make it worth colouring.

I had contemplated making this exclusive content for the art book, but I forked my soul out in this drawing SO IM POSTING IT LMFAO. There is a 2-page spread in the book with this drawing though! and this is probably the last illus I'll be posting to promote my book, so thanks so much for your support for the preorder event! I am eternally grateful :iconcryforeverplz:

edit: :iconsi-wook: suggested the sparksss

The girl with the black hair has weapons that all but immobilize her wrist movement,  a serious handicap in close quarters fighting.  Likewise the white haired girl is using swords that are too long for close quarters fighting.  She should trade them in for a Roman short sword and a dagger.

There is a certain beauty in the roughs, isn't there? sometimes i just can't bring myself to finish a drawing simply because i know my coloring skills aren't quite as refined... but then i guess that's the point of practice. Anyway, love the perspective!

This scene is living, the movement of the bodys and clothes, the weapons... The details of clothing, decorations, the colours and the light. It's really a fantastic picture you do it. I think your work on your artworks is the most incredible, and I take a great pleasure to contemplate it. I follow your work carrefully. I encourage you.
