Rain Bells by shirotsuki Rain Bells by shirotsuki
Hey! Been a while! Ive been writing my butt off, and away from home the good majority of the week... but my slowness can mostly be blamed to writing this story *points at picture*. AAAAAAAAND we have Asura, and some of my favorite things ever- the Rain spirits. Cross Canticle is full of spirits, lots of weird stuff, even a bit of mythology and folklore! I like these guys quite a lot though, mainly because they look a little like penguins and have rain chimes sticking out of their heads. Rain chimes are cool!

Believe me when i say that there's tons more to see, and i'll continue to doodle up stuff from the story and put it up here in my gallery as long as i can. Cross Canticle, the characters and art are copyright me. The pics are here for your enjoyment, but please do not take them!! If you'd like to use the picture, please ask first. This one was done in my sketch pad, inked in open canvas 4+ (love for the spoonpen!), and colored between adobe ps 7 and open canvas. tasty! Time was probably a good 4 or 5 hours or so.

I've always loved your style. The seemless blend of both colours, and the fact you're able to use them in so many hues.. the layers of fog and shadow, everything builds to a marvelously composed image.

*bows before you* You are a goddess of the quill and brush.

The playful quality of this is wonderful. A rain spirit? Would that be the child of water and wind? She has the feel I would expect of such a child.
