I usually upload these first on DA but I’m so proud of how these turned out*, that I’m posting these now. There are still two I need to finish and post. <3
*Even with computer problems—I ended up having to use an older backup laptop. (Which ironically worked better but I still took way more time than wanted/needed.) But I can see the light on solving these problems! ;^;
For my Halloween pics this year, I decided to draw the main three characters + mascot from my webcomics Legendary Beings Ara & Celi. In *this* post, it’s the titular Ara and Celi!
To be honest, I had a hard time figuring out in what to dress…an angel and a demon. XD Especially Ara, who I originally did not draw at first. I had my backstory reasons (her being an angel was NOT one of them) but I felt so bad that I left her out, I quickly drew her up—then I blanked out on who she should be dressed as! The only character that kept popping up was Boss from Metal Gear Solid, so, eh. *shrugs. Why not, you know? I think it worked wonderfully, imo.
Celi’s outfit is a fun callback to younger me. When I made comics of A&C for myself a stone age ago, at one point I drew Celi with her version of Eternal Ara’s outfit. Her ‘dress’ had jagged edges along the inner sides though, because she was “BLAGHA BLAGH DEVIL”. XD I honestly cannot remember WHY I did the design otherwise…but like 90% of my ideas for that proto-comic, I happily discarded it right around high school. Funny enough, in contrast to her normal outfit, it was very covered up :D
But I liked the idea of having at least one “Halloween-themed” outfit for her, so my always indecisive self made two versions. The left one is the original version, the right is the obvious Halloween-y one :B
I did the same type of coloring as here and here, but amped it up a little. I fell in love with it more than I have before, to the point where I’m seriously considering either using it for all my chibis or for Ara & Celi work only!
I hope some of you like these! ‘w’7
