Ah, I love how you drew the tree in the last two pictures. The leaves look withered, old and worn. Nice touch. And did you cut out the image and paste it on a pure white background? Thats what it looks like you did for the first one ... Next time, I'd try to go over it around the edges a bit afterwards. Looks a little too rough and unclean.
And the girl's face is kinda long looking, not to mention it's hard to defferenciate between the branches and her limbs. XD
well, sukura, I suppose, is jappanese for cherry tree... am I right? I had no idea how to do a black one with dark petals... when they're not in blossom the leaves are small, and they hang down... And she is so obviously NOT shooting the bird! lol
*points at Dragon, and he waves back, for some reason*
if you were expecting more then you expected too much. The final face I made is a perfectly wonderfull face, and IMO, and IMA that it looks a lot like your first pic of her in your profile, and THAT face possibly looks more accurate than Dragon's version.
But whatev... maybe I'll try again later, for now...
I'll repost when I get the sword finished.
And GuruGuruGuy, I'm terribly sorry, I was completely unsatisfied with the preliminary sketch I made, if you have any art to guide me in the right direction (specifically on the demon's face, what he might be wearing), would be much appreciated...
Also the shaull thing I talk about in there is white and looks like shibo's shirt from naruto but it only goes down to about his abs and then it looks shredded or tattered at the edges of it. (if that made any sense to you)
