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!!
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: 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
. old samurai getup
: for easy strolling around and harassing fellow swordsmen. hot topic raven
: well, it's not THAT bad is it? i think it's the..the...socks. captain raven
: ??? ?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; 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
