ah, i miss colored artworks; i'm currently neck-deep in black and white work that's taking up most of my time (and i mean MOST of my time) lately. no matter, i'll just be saving up all my coloring energies for this artwork i have in mind...
anyway, here's ara
, a redesign of an old character (using my don't-think-just-design jutsu). her background story's still the same, except this time, it's not all colorful anime and high saturation colors. hopefully that gives her character a different mood from the previous one: this
originally titled "the superfluous anecdotes of a post-apocalyptic third-world teenage drama queen", but DA's grouchy when it comes to long-ass titles.
additional notes (since i seem to get a lot of questions about this): she carries a scabbard that holds two weapons--a knife and a big-ass sword. the scabbard has luggage wheels at the bottom so it doesn't scrape the floor when she does quick attacks. the plugs tied to the end of her sword's handle are vintage keychains. vintage because ara's story takes place in a world where wires and plugs are no longer in use. there.
done a couple months ago on pscs2, with a wacom intuos 3, 8 hours, give or take.
later, y'all. UPDATE: Re-submitted as Print.
