Never hit on a Valkyrie by Minochi Never hit on a Valkyrie by Minochi
Tagged by :iconnellyonly:

"RULES; draw two characters known from any media (TV, movies, manga/anime, video-games etc)" together with one of your own."

There you have it, Lezard (who happened to sneak his hand a bit 'wrong';) and Lenneth from Valkyrie Profile, guested by no one less than Carmel Septh (older, around 17 for another concept).
The composion sucks, lol. *kills another tagg*

Anyhow, dicovered alot of flaws in my current style such as how flat I draw my faces and how fast I call a drawing 'finished'. : /
So, I decided to think more about the weight and volume when doing this, also studied cloth in order to get the foldings a bit more believable, developing a new way of shading (born from my old concept).
I also tried to sneak in some extra shades in the faces as much as I dared, hehehe. After all, if you detail everything else alot then leaving the faces the way I do is as if I don't draw a damn face at all!! hahah XD
But I know, there's still alot of anatomical flaws n' such.

Please bear with me, I promise to improve.
*pics up anatomy book and reads until the eyes fall out*

Lezard Valeth and Lenneth from V.P. (c) Square Enix

Aaaaahhh! It's wonderful, darling! So much more detail than I could ever stand... That's for SURE.

I would add a bunch of different vibrant smilie-faces to express my love for it but I lack in the brains department.

måste bara så säga att jag gillar verkligen ditt sätt att skugga, stilen sticker som ut och ger den de där lilla extra och gör att de ser mer levande ut :D

Wel done indeed ^v^

This is so awesome! I like Valkyrie Profile and you have this great many-lines style. Wow, this gives it an old feeling only with outlines. Great!

Well, I'm happy it gave you that old feel, wanted the books to feel a bit aged and chipped by all rough usage. XD

But say, you don't think the eyes of Valkyrie look a bit too light? (As if they're fading into the rest of the face or something? XD)

No problem, it's simply great ^^
And about those eyes (I suppose Valkyrie is the young woman there ^^), I don't see them strange at all... :P

Va? varför skulle jag bli det, mreow? XD
Jag tar gärna åt mig kritik, men för att vara ärlig tycker jag att du gick in lite för mycket på vad som skulle göra mina teckningar snyggare för dina ögon. Kritik bör vara absolut objektiv. ' A '
De enda andra som klagade på mina ansikten var nog de på ***.org, fast det var efter att de såg en bild liksom, så jag vet inte riktigt om de är värt att lyssna på. Ska fråga runt lite.

I'm not sure if there are any in local art stores around you, but you can get these small mannequins? >_O
If you manage to get one, they're quite helpful for anatomy (and perspective as well) ^__^.

Anyways, the details are looking awesome ^^.
I love the attention given to the fabrics as well.

Ah yes, they sell em everywhere here. XD (Book stores, toy stores and also in the budget and art store, hahah.)
But I tend to draw em, stick men before starting the actual composion of the body. What I want to learn is the musculature of the human body, lol.

Ah, I'm happy that you noticed the details I did on the texture! XD
