    Thank you so much Lyndis! Your words truly warm my heart, as sticking close to the original art style was my intention. Happy that I got it close! ^^

    Default Black Butler - Undertaker fanart

    Uploading new art after silence, I've been busy with my life as I've moved to another town and into new apartment as well. I'm going to start my art studies here this coming autumn ^^.

    Anyhow, long ago one of my followers on DA suggested for me to draw Undertaker from kurotroutsuji/black butler.
    Because I like white-haired characters and his design, I decided to give it a go and finish the old sketch that I had started ages ago. I also spent quite much time on the gothic window showing in the background, I can't believe it myself heh.

    Programs: SAI (main painting) Photoshop (after effects and adjustments)
    Thanks for looking! ^^

    Default Big digital art update

    Hi! it has been awhile since I last posted artwork here, as I've been busy with personal life stuff.
    I just wanted to update all the work I've been painting since then, so here it goes.
    First and the oldest is a fanart of San from the mononoke movie.

    Second is the last element for the element series, fire. I had already started my studies
    at the university while painting this, so it was really challenging to find energy and time to
    paint as much as I would have liked to. Happy I got to finish the series though!

    The last one is the first part of the new original series I decided to start after finishing the elements series.
    I picked seasons to be the theme for this, and portray those through male portraits for a change. This is the autumn one.
    It will be a challenge to paint the seasons often associated with much brighter and lighter color themes I think, but that is
    one of the reasons why I didn't want to take the "easy" road and do it with females all over again. Let see how it goes ^^
    I also got a lot of comments that the character looked a lot/ a bit like Squall from the FFVIII game. I certainly see where
    those comments are coming from. I tried to paint a character with shorter hair style as I haven't done those with males.
    I need to improve my skill coming up with different hair styles for males, and overall clothing design as well.

    On a side note related to the FF games, I've started painting FFVII character portraits and I would like to do all of them, sort of as a homage to
    the game. So there will be FF fanart updates coming as well as soon as I finish them ^^.

    FFXIV Character

    A'nutoh Tia (Sargatanas)

    Great to see more work from you again, Midorisa! Stunning as always! The fire one actually reminds me a bit of Triss from the Witcher series!

    Also, can't wait for the FF fanart

    Thanks Fynn! I actually had some problems with the fire painting, as I started to become too red, so I added greenish complementary colors. As those are often used in art by so many artists, it's not surprising an existing character had them in their design as well. I do see your point though, it's hard to be completely original in art ^^'. Her hair was blonde at one stage and spiky as well, but I decided it had to go as I didn't like the style on this character.

    I though I would do the FF portraits in the style of the game, and almost use the same face angles as well. I have had this idea a long time, but I never started it as I felt my skills weren't polished enough. Still not sure if I am able to make justice to the characters that they deserve, but I will sure try my best.

    Oh, don't get me wrong - I never intended to say that it reminding me of the character makes it unoriginal, far from it! It's still a very nice picture and the similarity actually made it resonate for me more, even though I knew any association I had between those two images was probably completely arbitrary

    Oh I see, I did try to come up with a design that I hadn't seen myself ^^. The originality stuff is just something that I try to develop, as it sometimes feels
    like everything has been done and you can't be that original. When I got the squall comments, I took that as a constructive feedback that I need to widen my style and character design abilities. It's not good when stuff that inspires you shows too well in your own art, then you're just 'watered down' version of that style really.
