Soul Gem Art: Cynthia (Burning Vengence) outline
I love it when i draw things~~
Anyways, it’s Cynthia…and depicting something that happens in the next part i’m writing up. I’ll put up the colored version when i finish it.
I needed some drawing practice after not using Photoshop for drawing for so long….so who else to help me out on this then everyone’s favorite succubus; Moza.
I like how this turned out…though i’m not thrilled with the face still..(i lost count how many times i redid the face)
I call this practice because i used a picture as reference for the posture…i wanted to figure out something that wasnt my usual (lacking) postures. i also tried to figure out how to pull off the ethereal wings that Mith did when she made artwork of Moza…i dont think i succeeded there. :/
on the upside..it seems i still shade like a boss. :D
So I got my new PC…a few days ago. So far so good…though I still need to find a recording/editing software if I’m going to do Let’s Plays or drawing videos again.
Need to reinstall photoshop cs3 again as well for art stuffs.
Then I need to learn to make games…and all things considered, the whole “flappy bird” explosion has…”revealed” something that has probably held me back mentally in terms of developing anything.
Basically…I’ll need to start small and simple then work it from there. Just like whenever I make something in Minecraft, its a simple hole in the hillside…which then turns into a complex town with streets, stores and secret pathways as I work from that.
Heh..who knows? Maybe whatever basic, simple game I end up making as a learning step will be the next “flappy bird”..50k a day in ad rev would murder those damn student loans flat…
Ahh..I’m back home! I’ve fixed up Part 3 of Soul Gem: Burning Vengence. I’ve no clue why tumblr lumped everything into a mass text ball but its not anymore.
I also changed some oddities and errors and things I realized were not the best of (my) writing skill…which I don’t think is that good to begin with. :s
Here’s the link in case:http://chazdragoon.tumblr.com/post/76503776409/soul-gem-burning-vengence-pt-3
Also..why the hell does tumblr throw in this gibberish codespeak into my writing when I go back to it in draft mode? :/
I noticed my last post was not typed out the way I had wanted it..and now looks like a jumbled mess of words.
I’ll fix that as soon as I’m able to…which may be as early as next week as I’m traveling/soon-to-be camping with my brother for vacation.
I just noticed now by sheer chance..waking up from something in the motel room.
Stealing the Soul Gem and killing Gustav is something best done without many people around. I decided to not waste any time and head straight to the museum.
Having been there in past jobs, I’m confident Gustav is there, as there are living suites for “special guests” in the upper floors. These are usually occupied by artists or owners of whatever prized pieces of treasure the museum was showcasing.
Cain’s little gift made traveling across the city to the museum much faster…even after some rough landings. I would have several hours before Gustav’s “party” began to take the Soul Gem and his life.
Security was light..roughly 6 guards patrolling various places inside the museum.
A little timing, a well placed distraction and some quick lockpicking made easy pickings on taking the Soul Gem from it’s glass prison. The gem itself was a rather dull ruby..it seemed worn with little brilliance…and hardly felt magical.
"I’ve no clue what you see in this thing Cain…hardly looks valuble much less magical. It does feel warm though.."
I put the gem in my pouch and begin moving to find Gustav…only I didn’t have far to look.
"Well well well…seems we have an early visitor!"
There he stood…as if standing there the entire time watching me. Just as I remember him..even wearing the same clothes; a white suit with stiff shoulders, some kind of decorative medals on his right chest
He makes a slight bow and grins at me.
"In the flesh. It is good to meet fellow…’gem enthusiasts’…Miss?"
I glare at him..remaining silent..if looks could kill he would of painted the walls with his foul blood..
"Now now…don’t look so grim. I may not like sharing my gains, but I -am- a forgiving gentleman. Return the gem and perhaps we could arrange a business transaction?"
"Sure…how about your LIFE!"
I run at him with all I had, my blades in hand about to tear him apart!!
A wide sword blocks my daggers’ path, a bearded man with a calm gaze behind the sword.
Gustav claps slowly, walking into view from behind his bodyguard.
"You are the 2nd women to get -that- close to me in such a fashion. Impressive!"
"OUT OF MY WAY FOOL!"
I push the bodyguard away and attempt to reach Gustav..but to no avail. He matches my moves, a calm yet serious look on him. A stark contrast to mine..eyes wide, panting, sweat covered…like some rabid dog.
“OF MY WAY!”
I growl at this man standing between me and my goal…stopping me from spilling that flilthy pig’s blood across these walls..watching him beg and plead to live.
"Such hatred…the last time I saw such…disdain towards me was..what, 15 or so years ago..when I killed that disobedient bit—"
"That was MY MOTHER YOU—"
Before I could attempt another move at Gustav, the bodyguard takes advantage of my rage and stabs me in the shoulder.
I stumble back and grip the dagger..yanking it out and clutching my wound.
Gustav then gets a twisted grin and laughs hysterically.
"AHAHAHAHHAHAH! You…you are the pup of that disobedient bitch I put down!? MY how time flies..and yet, teaches nothing to the next generation."
Gustav shakes his head as if disapointed at one of his own kin.
"Such a shame…I suppose disobedience really is a genetic trait."
“In these last moments, do at least ONE thing for me”
Gustav grins, snapping his fingers in the air.
“Try not to bleed too much…I have guests comming.”
Pain..all over my chest…I feel…weak…….no..
The world goes dark; the last I see is Gustav leaving the bodyguard and 3 crossbowmen; whom were hiding in the shadows, crossbows empty.
Dunno..I’m guessing bad timing with posts or awkward UI from tumblr (then again I only use mobile tumblr cause no PC… :( ) …but the lack of feedback or comments on recent posts makes a sad chaz.
And yet immediate attention when the ToS thing happened and I was gona leave…
:/ interesting that…
…but its probably bad timing given most of the time I posted around midnight…and by the time people were up that post was buried under the other posts from other followers people had. /theory
Dunno if tumblr has a sort of…organizing notification/follower list/system (it sure doesn’t on mobile) but that’d probably be a great idea for people who don’t wana dig through 100+ posts from X-number of followers to find out about a particular follower they may want to see what’s up.
Am I making sense here?
..or am I at the bottom of the post pile again?
Concept Art: Laura (Witchrizer)
Concept for the main character in Witchrizer.
Laura is using fire element here (obviously). When using fire her weapon becomes a flame whip capable of attacking multiple enemies. Not the most damaging weapon, but it makes up for speed, area of effect and a distance closer/grapple. Enemies occasionally catch on fire..but for the most part will come out with 3rd degree (or higher) burns IF they survive Laura.
Not too sure on Laura’s outfit…the jacket amd skirt is planned a light color (blue..?) While the one piece (yes, that’s a one piece) and stockings are black.
Music to Draw by: Arcane Wonder Worker (Adrian von Ziegler)
Did I mention I love von Ziegler’s work?
This is one of my favs when it comes to his “fantasy metal” musics.
I’d say it’d be a possible battle theme for Soul Gem..since I’m sure I can’t use Unfinished Battle from Xenoblade Chronicles. XD
