“No light in your bright eyes. Violent daylight in your skin
Shedding in the winds, wings long forgotten.”



:frail: Shinkami [Original Character from Project NuEЯRor] and his Anima, Basilisk [Latin name: Regulus= Little King].

Wuiii~ It's done~ :iconlawooplz:
I'm pretty beat after working 9 hours on this in one day :faint:

I actually started this because I wanted to try out something new again~
Nothing big though, just some new small tricks and stuff :aww:
But the process was a bit different this time:

Technique in short:
:pointr: Sketch on paper :pointr: Digital Outlines and flat colors :pointr: Merge and shade on normal colors
*last time I shaded on grey-scale and then added colors*

To be honest, I also wanted to see what technique suits me more.
So now I've found out that I like this one more. Coloring greyscale is good but when it comes to adding the colors...
I don't know. I get horribly lost at that point :XD:

Oh and the snake was a pain to color :nuu:
But thanks to Chisa-san who joined during the livestreams! I made fun of my snake and added eyelashes on it :lmao:
And then, surprisingly, it kind of worked and I kept part of the them~:iconpinkballoonplz:

♫ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ♫

Shinkami was revived as the "bios Omega" project.
The price for becoming alive again is Photophobia, in other words negative response to light.
His skin decomposes and sheds like a snake's when exposed to light, until there's only sand left.
To counter this, he has to take medication, or to simply retreat in a shadowy place and heal.

His element is earth and Basilisk is his Anima.

sakonma Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
Thank you so much!!! :heart:

Tools: Pen for outlining and Brush and Marker for coloring
Tablet: Yes :nod: It's a Wacom Bamboo Fun A6 size~
Photoshop: No, I always use PaintTool Sai for coloring :la: Photoshop is only used for the final touch-ups like color corrections etc~ :nod:

No biggie! Thank you so much :iconcocoloveplz:

LuffyNoTomo Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2012
oooh, okay - thanks - i dont have SAI but i hear a lot of good things on it and people using it for color

as for the wacom bamboo - i tried buying a CREATE table but it was sooooo bad that i had to return it =/ nothing worked even when i tried to change the settings to make it work better - there was still no change... it was jumping around and the thickness of the stroke wouldnt really change unless i pushed sooooo hard that my hand hurt @_@
