hi everyone. <.< >.> ok! i set my  screen to the brightest it can i guess shadows should be smooth like this, but then the image is supouse to be dark D= . When it comes to brightness and contrast i dont know what to do >_<. i like the coloring, the pose is not cool and dinamic, i know that, the only thing i care is the arm. Oh yes, i avoided drawing the background ... again xD. C&C welcome.

Perfect_Sollitude 2006-01-10 04:05:32 Wow this is really beautiful art, but yes, creepy oO
NikA 2006-01-10 11:33:47 thanks
Marius 2006-01-10 12:41:40 Arr indeed tres creapy. But damn well pulled off. The skin looks... well dead, so that's a good thing here ;) Nicely done. Just a bit confused about the blood on the bg, cuz it's kinda strainy it kinda looks like hair, or well, that was my first empression of it. Untill I saw her actual hair that is. Luv the decorations (uhm, by lack of sufficient knowledge of english, her clothing around her neck and buste) and the arm looks well, metallic ;) Well t-t-t-that's all for now f-f-folks!
Merink 2006-01-10 17:12:20 That looks painfull.... I love it, lol
Remi 2006-01-11 06:22:31 They should program a game with her being the protagonist. Now that would be interesting.
NikA 2006-01-11 16:07:16 thanks everyone, Marius: the blood is some sort of bridal veil. The skin ^^ yes it does look kind of dead, actually that was a mistake that turnt out to be a good thing, so i kept it XD. Thanks again everyone <3
Killer-Kun 2006-01-11 20:00:34 It's always good to see your stuff around nika :3
r7ll 2006-01-12 11:43:40 Great colouring technique you've got there, it suits your style. I'm not sure if that kind of freakyness is exactly my cup of tea but it's a skilled piece of artwork :D
MatthiusMonkey 2006-01-13 12:15:11 amazeing im likeing this macarbness hehe the style reminds me of the english covers of the priest comics wat did u do this with ?
CericCalas 2006-01-13 17:16:47 great and dark work as always nika. you've proved you can make a foreground, you should work on adding a background occaisonally, you'd be unstoppable. I have a feeling you're the kinda person i'd be frieghtened by if i were to meet you in a dark alley
roxysurfjam 2006-01-15 19:16:03 woooaaahhhhhhhhh.......freaky....
Kiel 2006-03-08 12:21:18 i get bored of critisizm where it isnt needed. pieces like this are an expression of a person where their ability, talent and thoughts are represented, this is your art and i dont see how it can be critisized?!? why cant people just look at art for what it is??? all i can say is its very good and i love the way it has been put together! ^_^
edragon 2006-05-15 15:11:37 that is scary! very nice, love the coloring.

another line art of Maru Nagashiwa. I kinda thought her last pose was so standard, so I wanted her in a more action-like pose. this is my result. alot more to come, because you've only seen 3 characters up till now XD muahahaha. ( keep in mind that this lineart is made for digital coloring, so eyes and such aren't filled XD hehehe)

Anime Chick
A girl sketched in multiple poses while in school class studying something I forgot already.

 It' not where you are or what you're doing, but who you're with . . .

Here's Kei, from my comic "Forever is Not Enough". ^^ He's in Ryu's cave, playing with spherical gems. Ryu is . . . off camera, but he IS the reason Kei is so happy. ^__^ (FYI, Kei is a peasant farm boy, which explains why his outfit is so . . . bleh. ^^;; Ryu has mountains of clothes he could borrow/have, but Kei prefers his own, for some odd reason.)

It's the return of the freaky angel chick who comes at you with cleaning untencles! Since my illustrator ticked me off I colored it in traditional colored pencils... I'm pretty happy with how it truned out, dispite the errors in it.

Nagashiwa
Not really lineart...but an inked picture... anyway this is another character named Meron from one of my other mangas called Kyor. Please comment/ make suggestions etc, etc... oh, and the pose is from a how to draw manga book....ugh...I absolutely hate her face... one of her legs kinda bothers me too...
