Raven Costumes+Katana by einlee Raven Costumes+Katana by einlee
my character Raven in different outfits with her sword, Benigumo (apparently the hilt/scabbard binding and scabbard can change colors *_*)



anyway, wow...this was insanely gratifying to draw. she's the OC that people kept asking to see more of, so here she is. thanks for motivating me--this is for you guys!! :heart: originally this started out as a sequence of poses where she's drawing her sword and assuming some kind of stance, but it got a little dull so i switched up the poses toward the right.

--------

costumes left to right:

:bulletred: default outfit: as seen previously, her "regular" outfit that has no need to be changed or washed whatsoever. she wears it out of lazi--i'm sorry-- convenience.

:bulletred: old samurai getup: for easy strolling around and harassing fellow swordsmen.

:bulletred: hot topic raven: well, it's not THAT bad is it? i think it's the..the...socks.

:bulletred: captain raven: ??? ?

:bulletred:prom raven: aah, i see it now; homecoming king. wait, no, queen. wait...what?

--------

there you have it: my OC raven, who's more macho than all my male characters. combined. ;o;

:bulletblack: random trivia to dispel some mystery and attempt character development (finally), derp!:

-she has parts in several stories of mine, so she's well acquainted with...everyone!
-she crawled out of hell to live a normal life, but one day she must confront the destiny that lies whence she cometh!
-benigumo (the sword) has its own pillow and blanket next to raven's spot on the bed.
-she has a HUGE crush on bones and is really shy about it.
-she acts all tough and stuff but is really just a big dork.
-i hope i didn't make any typos.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

hm..anyone wanna see a bigger version of any of the poses? sketch/lineart progress will be posted on my blog sometime.

tools: sai, photoshop 7
prints are available through ~sakuragarden!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

and as if this description wasn't long enough already, here's a heads up for my upcoming FULL-COLOR ART BOOK, coming soon to an announcement near you. be sure to check back! :heart::heart::heart:

Her outfits look awesome, but I like her poses a lot more; I can feel the energy in each one. And my favorite pose is Samurai Raven!

The old samurai outfit belongs to Kenshin Himura, I'm sure.

Oh my goodness.... I 'm so in love with the vibrance, pose, and style of the Captain look, it's dashing, daring, and makes me want to see her riding at the prow of an elegant spaceship (wow that was nerdier written down then in my head.) I adore them all :3 excellent contrast, always maintaining her attitude in every style<3

Old Samurai Getup reminds me of Rurouni Kenshin, Hot Topic Getup reminds me of Revy, Captain Getup reminds me of Space Pirate Harlock.
They all look interesting.
