Ragnarok: Shifuu by finni Ragnarok: Shifuu by finni
:star: Posted from FOURthewin.ORG! :star:

It's been a while since I've uploaded traditional work. A commission I did for =bara-chan at AWA'09, of her Amatsu sniper, Shifuu!
She graciously scanned the image for me after the convention <3 though unfortunately, the colors are never as good in the scan as they are in real life.

Mixed media; Copic marker and watercolor.
It's actually pretty difficult to tell where I used which!

Actually, =bara-chan scanned it for me, so I'm not sure how her scanning methods go. When I scan it, I make sure to scan in at least 300 dpi and then mess with the levels in Photoshop to get rid of some grain.

Hope that helps, and thanks a lot for the comment!

sdfasdfasdf wow this is amazing. I practically worship the ground =bara-chan walks on awkwaaaaard... so seeing her character in your art style is amazing |D

But I really really love this :heart: I love seeing the details you put into your artwork, even in Ragnarok when the character designs are (usually) the same. It's always fun to look at all the little things going on in your pieces, and this is no exception :) The kittens are so cute and pudgy! And I love how you did everything from Shifuu's tattoo to her outfit (I love how you drew her collar and goggles! And the ribbon on her arm is so nicely highlighted~) with such detail. It's just so amazing :aww:

hahaha one day I'll actually be able to commission you for your amazing art without feeling like I'm murdering my wallet OTL

:wow: Beautiful use of traditional media! I can't believe this hasn't received more comments.

The colours turned out really well. Ver y impressive (especially considering copics never like to scan that nicely >.< )

Aww, thank you very much!
I don't tend to get many comments overall, but thank you for yours!
Copics are always awful with scanning.. >_< This was after I played with the levels for a while, to try to get some of the color out of the scan.

Interesting picture though but could you clarify what those kittens are for?

It's an original design -- I decided to draw the droopy kitty that you can wear on your head as some cute decor, that's all. She's playing with them. The goggles are an original interpretation of the "Fashionable Glasses" item. : )

I see! Too bad they don't implement your creativity into the game; I'm sure it would be a much more visually appealing game if they did.
