::Xavier:: Curse of Blood Moon by jd-ayane ::Xavier:: Curse of Blood Moon by jd-ayane
It startet as an experiment but then developed into something that I didn´t expected... XD I wanted to try some techniques (which I do not use very often) out so I started a sketch on a A2-size sheet of paper, did the outlines with brushes and brown ink(no nibs... <.< I´m fed up with nibs at the moment and as my cousin from Russia has send me some really good brushes I wanted to try them out, too). Then I used lacquer and coloured ink, copics and white ink - and the illustration was finished! XD

Nya, it´s Xavier, a character of a story ("Curse of the Blood Moon") which keeps me busy in my free time. If you ask me, whether I ever will draw it as a comic - no, I most definitely won´t. =_= The story is kinda cruel and if I draw it, I will get depressed. Some day I will upload a second illustration for "Curse of the Blood Moon", which I have been working for quite a lot of time (and still am)... It´s so damn detailed... O.ô

By the way, the left hand is a little too big, my mistake... <.<

@ :iconnolavon: : *without words* :hug:

PS: As I think that the question will appear more often I want to answer it now. When I write laquer then I mean the one which is used for graffitti - filled in a spraycan. As I do not know the english word for it, I´m writing what the description on the can says. ^^

amazing. I love it. I don't really have any advanced critique, though I really love how the lines are not in black. It always gives an image a softer look

Beautiful work, I'm surprised that it's traditional--it has some really nice effects on it, that I would more expect from digital. It's really an amazing picture, the lineart looks great and the colors are amazing.

Lizet Featured By Owner May 3, 2005
This is really great! I love how u did the background and the colours u used. My favourite part would be his eyes. They're gorgeously rendered =)
Ooh, and I was wondering (reading ur discription on what u used); what is lacquer =_0 ?
manslaughterer Featured By Owner May 3, 2005
I hesitated to comment this, when I stalked through my watched artists at animexx, because... I think, most of your charas look the same in a way and I'm bit idle to say what is wrong with that...

your technical skills of course are very good and always impressing. But - especially in a A2 size - I think the textures in here are too rough. Comes out almost disturbing on the face and hands, while it fits most well on the background...
nolavon Featured By Owner May 3, 2005
;___; imotochan...made me another gifty. Nya demo...centi needs to draw you more artses too X__X You make too many presents for the centi *not worthy sniff* Thank you so much ;__; its so pretty and beautiful and nyaaa congrats on making front page today ne?

Rikku247 Featured By Owner May 3, 2005
wow, this is amazing. Although I would agree with you on the size of the hand, it isn't super noticable and the detail you put into the character's body is excellent. I really like the glare off the hair and shirt.
Noriko-Sakuma Featured By Owner May 3, 2005
