Carciphona - Summoner by shilin Carciphona - Summoner by shilin
(reuploading cus it wouldn't let me submit it as a print and thumbnail was a broken image ):???? hopefully it works this time)

Vocruen from Carciphona c:

Not much is revealed about him because it's not his time yet, but I do like drawing him as the only male (and masculine... keri doesn't count) sort of main character in the whole of the story HAHA. He is a summoner which, in my story, uses music to influence sentient spiritual entities to their aid. Being a good summoner takes talent and a special natural connection to the spirits, and let's just say he's good at making the spirits love him. I've tried to draw something to this effect a few times but I disliked my previous attempts ): I'm happy how this came out though, and I'm surprised that the creatures didn't turn into a disaster HAHA I NEVER DRAW CREATURES... they didn't look as spirit-like as they should but I was too focused on making the creatures not look catastrophic :D;;; better luck next time!

Love the wand/staff. The composition is on point too.

He looks evil.
I have a question about meron. At the end of the fourth book, we learn that she knew about Vocruen's whereabouts since the beginning. Why didn't she just tell Veloce before to earn her forgiveness?
shilin Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
it was very poorly planned and depicted, but you find out like 3 pages into chapter 6 when they first met the general Desair, with a tiny flashback of veloce telling meron she doesn't want her help and telling meron to go away or something like that!

Incredible! I love the contrast between his hair and the monsters, it makes me concentrate on his face. And the monsters are so cool and creepy.

Really cool design on the pipes
Arcedemius Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist

Amazing art! But I'd like to ask, what is he holding? it looks like an instrument of some sort, like a flute.
shilin Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2014  Professional Digital Artist

I love Vocruen now. 
Heinrich-Konig Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2013

That's one classy-ass summoner! :D


Although I feel like this picture needs to be a little more expanded. At the moment it kinda feels like everything's boxed into a corner. Maybe if you were to add to it, you could have a little more of the white floor, and some kind of young apprentice standing before the summoner, with all those spirits and monsters swirling around them both.


But hey, that's just me (not that I have much right to critique), it's still a good job! :)

kyannakitty Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
oh. my. god. everything about this of course, but with my blown mind the comment i want to make is that whatever he is holding - i assumed it  was a crazy kickass wooden flute of awesome.....yeah its amazing. i love that its some original instrument i assume it used to summon the creatures? its creative as all get out! awesome amazing- just th whole thing. *backs out while i don't sound like a /complete/ loser yet.
thomasng Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist
It might be bones rather than wood. It's hard to tell from the colour.
Raybras Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013
i was wondering... what's the black on his shirt? is it part of the shirt? or is it a tie? or is it something else?
shilin Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
it's part of his shirt (:
thomasng Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013  Hobbyist
I had a shirt that looked exactly like that!
Raybras Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013
Thanks! I had a hunch it was so, since it looked stuck to him and not flowing apart. To the pleasure of meeting you again sometime soon :)
