Carciphona - Tango by shilin Carciphona - Tango by shilin

Full process walkthrough/tutorial:
Accompanying video:…

Veloce and Blackbird from Carciphona yay!! made for a tutorial as my fans requested when my facebook page hit 10k likes :D

a lot of ppl asked for large resolution pics too for celebration, but I couldn't think of a way to distribute these without risking some asshole taking it and selling it. In the end I decided it's just one drawing, I can shoulder some damage to give my followers something they want, so here it is available for download! click on the download button to save a large version of this piece :D I know this request will fall on the wrong ears but please DO NOT repost the full version for download anywhere else or sell this image in anyway shape or form, tangible or intangible (please report any abuse and violators to me!) You can print it out for yourself if you are unable to buy prints from me, but I will sell prints of this piece and I hope those who intend to own a print of this will pay for it (: The original is many times larger than the large size I post, and your print will certainly be much better quality. This large file is an expression of gratitude from me for your support, and I hope it will not damage me more than it makes people happy. Enjoy!

follow my tumblr for sketches and wips c: and like my facebook to get notices about livestreams!

I started and caught up on Carciphona in one day! IT IS EXACTLY MY TYPE OF MANGA!! I LOOOVE badass female main characters!!!! And I am totally shipping Veloce x Blackbird...what would the ship name be? VelBird? ...hehe...and Vocruen is my type of bishie xD but I don't ship VeloCruen(?). Normally I would but not this tiiiime omg you make me so restless for the next two pages!!!! And your art is sooooo amazing!!! Me and a couple of my friends are hardcore fans of yours!!

Also...I can't even remember if I've asked you yet...I visit your gallery and website too often so I can't remember anymore... but could I pleeeeease please please have your permission to use your art on our high school anime club's t-shirts??

These aren't for profit, and only club members are allowed to buy them. Also, I'm designing the shirts collage-style, with several other artists, so no one artists is representing the club or anything like that. I would really really love to have your art on our t-shirts!! 

Hope to get a response soon!!! Thank you so much for your art and for Carciphona!!!

thank you c: you can as long as, like you said, they are not for profit (you mentioned selling them so I just want to be clear), and they are not distributed in massive quantity, and that people know where they're from/who they're by.
PoiChanSama Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Yes they are not for profit at all: we just provide the means for everybody to buy a T-shirt, so in fact we're all losing money xD. And only one shirt per person.
PoiChanSama Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Also, I'm crediting all the artists on the back of the T-shirt.

Wow! Amazing!
Altena-Q Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2015
I love your art and this pairing especially, just one little thing bothers me in this pic - Blackbird's lip corner is somehow strangely prolongued with this curl up. When I cover it with my finger, the face gets instantly better - for me it looks like somebody cut it with a knive to make the mouth bigger than it normally, anatomically is. Apart of it, the artwork is just perfect.

OH MY GOD!! It's been a while ago, but I saw the video of this on youtube and I think it's AMAZING!! I could never draw like this, but this is just so beautiful >///<
JacobBakk Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2015
This is so interesting to watch. You can't get enough
psycopix Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2015  Student General Artist
Nice but from a distance the girl on the right is hard to read (including her left arm and glove on first viewing) because the background colour is similar to her dress.
JacobBakk Featured By Owner Aug 15, 2015
Sure but once you see it the pose is perfect. They both really suite their attitudes

this is a great perfect piece when hatred is shunned out of nowhere. :T
