Eyes for the Ocean by shirotsuki Eyes for the Ocean by shirotsuki
wheeeeeee! pulled this together for , for our art trade ^^. this is her character Kilara, from her original story Xiro Myth. and... i got really carried away. i never really intended to go so far with the background, it was just supposed to be character shots and all... but i had fun ^^. kilara is drawing asura for me, squeek! i havent done an art trade in eons, so i figured it was about that time.

kilara is copyright to kilara! boy does that ever sound confusing.. but she is! and the art is mine, well.. this pic is, though it's done for her, yeah.. now im even more confused. anyway dont take it without permission! done in my sketch pad, inked in open canvas 4+, colored between adobe 7 and open canvas.

This is amazing even after not looking at it for years.

Just think that her head is a little too far back, but as a whole, the picture is extraordinary and surreal.

At first I thought that the water was just a pool of water until I realized there was a cliff. I think the perspective's interesting, although that neck angle looks slightly awkward/painful for the kid. The only thing that throws me off is how there doesn't seem to be enough depth to convince me that there /is/ a cliff in the first place.

The colors are wonderful, though.

Ahem. Back to speaking like the intelligent, mature asylum patient that I am, I must say, very, very good. ^^ I hope I can draw like that some day. All I can do is make little scribbles with a piece of flint on the wall of my rubber room.... -dreamy sigh-
