maybe, it's better in FULL VIEW ^_^
Character: Original (Kradhikari)
Drawn without references
Tools used: black pen, black marker, silver metallic sign pen and blue colored pen for the eyes...^^
This art took much longer time to be finished than my regular art...whew, with those details! but I had fun and I'm proud of this because everything in it is my idea: the armor/outfit, the sword, the character, the flowers and the background...
See her face focused----
Yay! Black and White Theme is awesome! I wanted to follow the theme in every aspect. First of all, the character herself is teeming with black and white hues; her long "spaghetti" hair is white and she is wearing an armored suit with black and white designs. I decided to make the eye color different-yep, for me, blue is catchy and unique! Anyway, almost everything is black and white. The roses are black with white petal edges. The branches beside her and the stems of the roses are pure black. The sword is my own design- with the black blade and white upper parts and handle. The very tiny flowers in the background are white and four-petaled (if you will take a closer look ^^). The leaves on both of her sides are pure black, in contrast to the flowers' color. The helmet above her head is half black and half white, which is torn in two (there is a story behind that
) and it's my design, too. Her armored suit is mostly black but has white-tinted curvy designs (yay! 'played with the curves again! )^^ i actually changed my mind about putting thorns in the rose stems/vines. If you will look closer, two strands of the rose vines on her left part have thorns but the others all over the bg have none. Lol!
The Tools--- Black sign pen is the main tool I used for the details. I also used ordinary black pen for the finer details, black marker for the broader areas (such as the sword and mask) I fated the pen to emphasize the shadowy parts of the face and the bandage-like material wrapped around the sword handle. I used pencil for the ashes in between the branches. I also used silver metallic sign pen for the spiky area of the helmet's white sand.
The Name--- Her name might sound Hindu, but it's not derived from such word..lol! Kradhikari comes from the words "dark" spelled backwards and the Japanese word 'hikari" which means "light." So her name means "light of the darkness" (at least for me ^^)
The Story--- Yay! I wrote a little story for this drawing! During the Dark Era, the Shadow Warrior obliterated a thousand "yokai" sent from the underworld to ravage the East. The Shadow Warrior was the pride of humans, the fiercest of them all and had always won battles. Unfortunately, her last opponent was the man whom she never expected to be a foe- the man whom she fell in love with (whom she thought was human but the leader of the "yokai" army). On her last fight, her mask was torn in two. Only then was her identity revealed- the strongest weapon of humanity whom everyone thought was a man, was a woman with an angel's visage... Sadly, the blade that penetrated through her belonged to the only man who owned her heart! T_T
UPDATE: I changed the main file with the clearly scanned one with black borders made via MS Paint to make it more presentable. I added the description, too. ^^
