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: 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!
also can i ask, did you color this in ps or sai ?
My favorite is the captain because it looks badass!
The old samurai, captain and prom outfits are really superb. I need the captain one…
You are doing so good on this one >o< Waa~ I love her character ahahha
They all look interesting.
If I met her, i'd probably like her and ask her to be my friend
