Anyway, Shingeki No Kyojin artbook WIP~~~ The deadline for Operation Requiem got extended to 31st of January so woot I have time! °7° Although I need like another 3-4 days of work to finish this, now that it’s due in more than a month, I guess I can add more detail until then, and clean things even more °u°
Well well~ I’ll get down to business with Eren’s butt tomorrow.
This preview is only like the 10-15% of the whole illustration btw XD
Well yes you guess it right. When I introduce a new character, I just HAVE to make that meme with them omggggg /)/////(\ I was writing on this for almost a month now wtf °-° Means that my breaks weren’t that many sob. Anyway!
HERE IS VAEL’S AND NUYA’S WEIRD AND A BIT INAPPROPRIATE MEME
//About VaeI// It addresses mostly his lifestyle and how he lives with Hlaeja’s, his sister’s, soul in his body. Many parts of the meme are written for both him and her. And I’m so not sorry if some things are disturbing this time omg he’s a weird character. Vael and Hlaeja go right at the top of my “most-disturbing-OCs-I-ever-created” list .___.
//About Nuya// She’s actually a very very side-character, so the most important stuff are written under the drawing I posted a couple hours ago. But I guess her part of the meme addresses some interesting things about Lerato and Kayun omg XD
Actual-story-related stuff is written under the very last question actually. °3°
Pfewww~ Well then, there’s only Lyn and Keiti’s to write, and then I’ll focus on the artbook! CAN’T WAITTTT~ But wow that meme is super amusing and helpful in getting to learn your own OCs better! °u°
Again my standard apologizing: 1) Sorry for weird english 2)Sorry for ranting so much XD
✿ The Atlas floats lower than what the water gave us And time flows slower for the two in love for myriads
Aaah I’ve been working on this on and off for quite some time now ;u; And it’s still not finished haha must touch up the armor and the weapon and also learn how to color water .___.
Anyway! I’d like to introduce you to that little girl here vuv She’s Nuya, Kayun’s little sister °u° She appears a bit after the middle of the story, right before Vael appears as well. After Kayun asks her to, she helps Shinkami find some information about Vael. She speciallizes in protection magic, and at some point casts a protective spell on Shinkami’s skin to help him with his sunlight-troubles.
Nuya’s the reason Kayun and Lerato met each other ´u` When she was four, she showed the first signs of Exanimia, so Kayun became a guinea pig in order to be able to afford her medication. And while at it, he met Lerato~ yay! 8D
Exanimia is a sickness that separates the soul from the body. Nuya almost died from it, so her soul isn’t properly attached to her body. In fact, she can split her soul in many parts and have them leave her body to roam around and explore. At the age of 21, she’s able to split her soul in 9 parts *plus the one in her body*. Her body can stay alive even with only one of those parts, therefore she practically has 9 lives. If she gets killed, the soul-part in her body dies, but then one of the remaining 9 parts of her soul enter the body and revive it.
Because of that ability, she lives very very long.
Nuya’s element is Water, and her Anima is a Pterophyllum (also called Angelfish). In fact, she has 9 of them because of her 9 extra soul fragments~ Because of her soul’s condition, she’s an airhead and forgets small things sometimes *just like fishes do LOL* For example, if you ask her to call you at xyz time, she’ll probably forget to do it XD
Her name is the reverse of Kayun. When she was born her parents named her “Nuyak”, *”Kayun” backwards*, wishing their children will always be close and help out each other. They then took out the “k” to make the name sound more feminine LOL. Just like their “opposite but connected” names, Kayun and Nuya are complete opposites but also alike in many things. *Kayun’s element is Fire, Nuya’s is Water. Kayun’s Anima is a feline while Nuya’s is a fish, which means there’s a bit of tension. But their hair color and aspects of their personality are very alike. They also both have a thing for wearing armor on their legs and have stuff hang from it XD*
Nuya’s outfit is more capital-like, because she lives in the capital with her parents *unlike Shinkami and Lyzlot and the others, who live in a city close to a dessert, so they’re more tribal-code dressed*. Her dress and sleeves are see-through *HECK DID IT TAKE ME LONG TO COLOR THAT CORRECTLY LOL* and Kayun doesn’t really approve of it XD Nuya has a belt with round, cross-decorated magnets that are used to hold her weapon, which is a spear. *So yes, she attaches her spear horizontally behind her legs. IT LOOKS FUNNY AND IT’S DANGEROUS TO WALK AROUND LIKE THAT BUT WHATEVER LOL*
Ah anyway, will delete all that info in a couple days, but I didn’t want to simply dump a new OC drawing here without…RANTING lol
Thanks to those who joined the stream! Here’s a gif of the drawing process! LOOK AT THE SEDUCTIVE INITIAL POSE AHAHAHA KAYUN WOULD KILL SOMEONE [link to deviantart stash]
Will touch this up in the following days but for now, let’s go back to work e__e
✿ Second special commission for Ayame1317Taichi@dA ´u`♡
This time it’s a costume reference of her character Erik *isn’t he hawtttt<3* He’s also in [that] drawing I did a couple months ago .u.
Please excuse some parts of the anatomy omg lately I’ve been having a problem: Making the legs stand on the same ground .__. I dunno but something tells me I did something wrong right there haha but truth be told, I didn’t focus on anatomy as much for this commission. Just focused on the design m(_ ν _)m
Anyway, I’ll be glad if this can help with the cosplay! \(°7°)/
So I was literally screaming when the sweet Aresky@dA asked if she could animate it! HO MY GOD ADLFKJALKFJALKFJA AAAH I CANTTTT<3333
So we’re working on it right now! *this is like the only thing(+commissions) that makes me go online despite my hiatus ;u; I want holidays already!* Anyway, this video is just a small work-in-progress but AAAH SHE’S ALREADY DOING A GREAT JOB WOWOWOWOOW I LOVE IT! ´7`<33333
Please look forward to the finished video! Aresky’s work is AMAZING! <3
✿ A special commission for the sweet Ayame1317Taichi@dA! (*°▽°*)))♡
That’s her character Lind *akldjfalfj I love himmm<3* You might remember him from [that] drawing I did a couple months ago ´u` Was asked to make a fullbody sketch of his design for cosplay purposes *but I ended up adding some minimal colors and making zoom-ins of the patterns haha I HOPE THEY HELP! No idea how you make a cosplay costume from a reference but I hope mine is easy to understand /)//3//(\*
Personal: Well fuck midterms, labs also started. Which means lots of essays to write. I’ll be spending lots of time in my uni now so goodbye internet *although we have wifi and I sneak online every now and then lol* but yeah. Except for posting commissions, I’ll be pretty silent ;u; Really looking forward to the holidays already ´0`
Just wanted to say that you probably won’t hear much from me the in following days. Probably for a couple weeks(actually a month or so?) ;;
Reasons are some very important midterms and life matters.
I don’t think I’ll post art for myself for some time either (originals and fanarts) but I’ll be working on commissions *new slots will open in about a week*, as well as finish some artbook and secret santa entries hun hun. -v-
Also sorry that I don’t comment/reply much on dA. I read everything but leave it there to reply to it later, because right now it would only distract me Q3Q
You will probably see signs of life from me though if I receive something because when I do I ABSOLUTELY MUST PIMP IT AROUND <3333 Thank you ´///`
Anyway, there’s two things I want to post in the next few days and then I’ll dive in my books and other things~
Take care guys until I come back from my hiatus! *smooches and hugs*
Guyssss omggg I already fangirled on the picture’s dA-link which you can find above and omg my hands hurt from typing too much so please excuse me if I don’t scream all that much now ahahah MY WRIST CRACKED FROM TYPING LIKE CRAZY I WAS TOO EXCITED AND I HURT IT OOOPS *types slowly with one hand now* but OMGGGGGGGGG this is just soooooooooooooo amazing!!!!! T7T So pro and so artistic! I love the colors and the atmosphere sobbbb <333
Lerato is sooooooo pretty oh my! His face makes me want to hug him aaah ;3; And wow THE CRYSTALS LOOK SO REAL! Just wow @A@ And he’s so pale it’s perfect <3 His crystal heart might be missing BUT WHO CARES THIS IS PERFECTION <333333 I just love how his fingers softly fade out to black aawww ´u`
And Kayun! OMG KAYUN’S MANLINESS OMG DAT FACE AAAH MY OVARIES CAN’T TAKE IT <33333 Such a perfect manly body omg those abs and that chest AND THE NIPPLES LETS NOT FORGET THE NIPPLES ´7` I really love how Jordan (mistermya) drew a red cloth to symbolize Kayun’s scar! AND THE CLOTH IS TURNING TO BLOOD LIKE HOW COOL IS THAT!!!!
-story spoilers below-
I love the concept of the picture SO FREAKING MUCH. It reminds me of the ending chapter in the story where Kayun dies because Lerato couldn’t control his singing anymore and was confused so he created a prophesy to kill Kayun ;A; Jordan titled this “Sorrow and Ire” and it’s just SO FITTING! I mean Lerato realizes what he did and he gets so sad and angry at himself that it leads to the end of the story.
Lerato crystallizes of course so he never gets to mourn over Kayun’s dead body since they weren’t together even before Lerato’s prophesy. *Kayun was on a completely different battlefield together with Lyzlot and Keit, and Lerato was far away with Shin and Lyn* But this picture just makes me imagine “what if Lerato’s soul,now looking like a human *without the non-human crystal heart*, travels to where Kayun’s lifeless body is lying to bid him a last goodbye before he ends the world” ;3;
IT’S JUST SO EMOTIONAL TO THINK ABOUT! ´A`<33333
-end of spoilers-
Oh and the red wings on Kayun are just so cool! I wouldnt really ever draw him with wings, but I guess they fit him in that context! Besides, like Jordan wrote on dA, Lerato sees Kayun as his savior/angel *same for Kayun’s way of seeing Lerato* so the wings are fitting if you think it that way! <3
And also omg Lerato NEVER cries. In the whole story, you never see him cry, EXCEPT for THAT ONE scene when he realizes what he did ;;
A thousand thank yous for this amazing picture! My hands are totally dead now and I wanted to work on some cms today but FUCK IT THIS WAS WORTH IT <333333 I LOVE THAT PICTURE SO MUCH!!! THANK YOUUUU!!!
