Wow! I am loving that shading. 😀
Thanks for the suggestions! I will definitely use the transparency idea when I remake my first picture. As for the moonlight pic, I shall add the extra mist when I fix that little masking issue.
Y’know, I didn’t think about redoing “Lake Princess”. I hope I still have the text for the original somewhere…
I must see that. Please do it. 😀
Thanks, you guys! The moon was my favorite part. The mist was kinda fickle, though. Darn masking.
Speaking of masking, upon close examination, I noticed that I screwed up the graveyard. D’oh!
I was working on something a little more festive, and I might post it later today if it’s finished by then.
Wow! This is really cool. I love the shading. It’s subtle but it’s very effective.
As for a name…? Hm…
How’s Crusader, White Jackal, or Deadlock?
Kinda generic, but names aren’t my strongest suit. XD
Merry (early) Christmas, everybody! I’m back again, so I thought I should shake the dust off this place by posting a new picture.
Bathing In The Moonlight
Fast fact: Two of the first vampires written about in European literature, Lord Ruthven and Varney, had the ability to regenerate in the moonlight. I thought it was a shame that this seems kinda forgotten in most vampire universes nowadays, so I started using the idea in mine. 😀
Now, back to the picture. My brother suggested that I shade the clouds, but I thought it would ruin the silhouette look. Whaddya guys think? 😛

I knew I should’ve asked first XD
Now I feel dumb.
Thanks, Mr. JR! The face was my favorite part. It was fun to draw, and it didn’t take long at all. I hope my other pics will be that way…
I’m not dead, I’m meditating!
After figuring out how to use insignias to draw more detailed features, I decided to try to improve my art. I’ve been working on my own style for HeroMachine 3, which has taken A LOT of time, and honestly, I still don’t think I’ve mastered it.
BUT! This doesn’t mean I’ve come empty-handed! I have prepared a picture to show my progress!
Y’know what’s funny? I thought that using insignias for faces and such was kind of original, until I learned that another user (The ever-so-talented Harlekin) makes her faces the exact…same…way….AND her pictures are better than mine…..
This didn’t take more than an hour to make, so I apologize if it looks…stiff. I’m still working on poses, so bear with me…
<span class=”bbcode_spoiler”> (“Ripped from a news report.”[not really])</span>
“Not much is known about this mysterious creature, except that she drifts along the bottom of large bodies of water, appearing in different parts of the Northern Hemisphere (though no one knows how she travels so far without detection). Some people claim to have witnessed her surfacing on particular nights while performing some kind of dance, leaping gracefully into the air before diving back into the depths below. Because of these claims, she has been named The Lake Princess.”
…Mieran isn’t really that mysterious. She’s actually kinda peppy, but you know how news reports can be when they are about mythical beings.
Thanks! I’m glad you like it! I think my next character will be her father, but I may consider posting one of her allies instead. What do you think?
This is my first post, so i think I shall celebrate with a cold drink! This took me A LOT longer than I thought it would, but in my opinion, the result was definitely worth the effort. The background took the longest, mostly because i got the idea from a dream I had, and my memory of it was fuzzy….
This character is one of my favorite. I’ve hand-drawn her numerous times, but I’ve never had anywhere to put her. But, enough of that! CHARACTER BIO!
Alfeya’s Race and Planet:
Alfeya’s homeworld, Za’el, was originally thought to be an uninhabitable planet due to its intense gravity, unpredictable and harsh weather, the unforgiving heat, and its surface geography (which contains a large amount of active volcanoes). The planet is, in reality, the home of 40 million human-like inhabitants.
Alfeya is from an alien race that is similar to Amazons, but with a few differences:
There ARE men (and quite a bit of them).
Their culture has influence (and decendants) from Egyptian, Libyan, Persian, Roman, and Eastern cultures.
Some members of this race have elemental or magical powers, and posses strength that is on par with Hercules (like Alfeya).
This race has a MUCH higher understanding of technology (think “Thanagarian” level)
Some members know how to manipulate their “aura” to gain the ability of interstellar flight without the aid of technology.
Occupation: Daughter of the Council (“princess” in fancy speak), Spy
Powers: She has a lot, so I’ll only list the basics.
Solar Manipulation: She has the ability to generate any kind of solar radiation that she chooses.
Advanced Pyrokinesis: She can generate and control fire. This is not limited to fire that only she has created. She can change the intensity of her flames as well.
Aura Manipulation/Reading: Her aura can read the “energy” emitted by her opponents, understanding their strength level. If concentrated, she can actually use this info to boost her strength and speed. There are some drawbacks because it takes A LOT of time to finish reading auras. In fact, this technique is barely practical since she can normally rely on her agility and wits if fighting against a stronger opponent.
Basic Healing Spells
Fighting Style: She’s basically an Egyptian kunoichi, although she has also learned multiple techniques from the Phoenix, an advanced intelligence created by Za’el’s top scientists. The Phoenix disappeared shortly after its creation, appearing in strange locations and disappearing again (defiant little fella). Alfeya found it in her childhood, and grew attached to it, so imagine her grief when it ended up destroyed by a massive amount of radiation (long story).
Hey, I’ve tried to upload my pic, but at step 2, the “Add Files” button doesn’t work. I have this problem with a lot of the buttons on this website (because the “tag” that appears when you scroll over to it gets in the way), so I usually just right-click the link and choose “open”, but it doesn’t work for the “Add File” option. I use Internet Explorer (against my better judgment), but I’m honestly not sure if that’s the issue.
