Korra - WIP
by ~kirin2009 on deviantART

This is my first attempt at drawing Korra (last shown here). One of the fun things about AtLA fanart is that you can draw characters doing all kinds of OTT flashy moves that you’d never use in a real fight. Flying side kick + firebending = suddenly a lot more effective.

I had to sharpen this one a lot because my scanner is rather fond of eating my linework. Colours and a (simple) background will be added later. For now, I’m more interested in hearing about how to sort out her clothing folds and fix any anatomy errors that are still present. I think I find it easier to draw baggy clothes - it must be all those years of drawing Inuyasha fanart. :p

I now have a new scanner, so here's some new art:

Hopefully, I'll have more to post here soon, depending on how well I keep my New Year's resolutions. ;)

Sayo @ Paperdemon

So, it only took me four months to upload some actual artwork to my new DA account. And it's a scrap. Well done, self. ^^;

Anyhow, this is Sayo one of my (horror of horrors) original characters from an Inuyasha fanfic I've been working on for God knows how long, which will hopefully see the light of day before the end of this decade. Until I started on this story I was very reluctant to use OCs as anything other than minor/background characters in my fanfiction because there's so many pitfalls to avoid when it comes to OCs. However, in this story there was no way I could make a canon character the antagonist without making things *incredibly* contrived and I needed a cast of supporting characters who weren't just there to act as plot devices. None of them are romantically involved with any canon characters (except for a couple of one-sided crushes), so hopefully that'll get me out of Mary-Sue Hell for the time being. j/k

Cut for more babbling about my art... )

*goes back to looking for temp work*

Finally finished colouring this:

A young(er) Bankotsu and Jakotsu

*flails over kid!Bankotsu's ridiculous tininess*

I think the perspective might be a bit off but at least the scanner didn't mess up my colouring as badly as it usually does.

Bankotsu's about 12/13 here and Jakotsu's about 16. I'm assuming that they probably worked together as mercenaries for quite some time before Bankotsu began forming the Shichinintai, so the picture is set shortly after they began travelling together. Of course, I have a needlessly long and convoluted backstory for both of them (and most of the other Shichinintai members) but I won't bore you with that here, mainly because I still keep changing it on a fairly regular basis. :p

Constructive criticism is very welcome.
