HELLO OTAKU EVERYWHERE!
Looking for a place to show off your fanart and oc's? You have come to the right place!! Please join, submit, comment. All are welcome!
This month's theme: Thanksgiving
[open] Contest/Challenge! Draw your OCNote on the deadline: Since I didn't have much time to promote the contest the past month, the deadline will be extended bit to give new contestants a fair chance too. Stay tuned for updates
As described clearly in the rules, your entry must be a new deviation, made with the challenge in mind! Asside from the fact that entering with an exhisting deviation is quite unfair towards your fellow contestants who worked very hard on creating a new piece of art, what is the point of joining a challenge if you are going to submit a drawing you didn't actually make with that challenge in mind?
I've hit some pretty awesome milestones in the past couple of months! Both on DA and on other accounts on the big WWW. So I've decided it's time for a party!
BLACK BUTLERS - Better Of Two Evils (pt. 9)
PART 9 – BETTER OF TWO EVILS
Warning: Graphic content, but nothing too violent or explicit. Consider yourselves warned.
“CIEL PHANTOMHIVE, YOU DAMN BRAT!!!!” Adrielle yelled, with pure rage emitting from her eyes. “SHE CAME HERE TO SAVE YOU!!”
“She came here for her own, selfish reasons, lady Roseville. Let’s not make a martyr out of Evelyn Waldram, for she is everything but one.”
Sebastian was still holding Evelyn’s body in his arms. He was covering himself and that woman with the pair of long, black wings that were growing out of his back. His eyes were completely black too, except for the pupils which were still the color of magenta. His hands had those razor-sharp claws, and a pair of long, curved horns was spiraling up from his head. He looked tad like some fallen angel - beautiful, but deadly, still covered in blood from the wound he bestowed upon his witch. Despite that eerie, evil look, he carried her wi
BLACK BUTLERS - Mea Culpa (pt. 8)
PART 8 – MEA CULPA
Warning: Graphic content such as violence, two demons fighting, people burning alive, and being devoured by monsters. Consider yourselves warned.
Screams of pure agony filled the whole area. As flames were melting the skin, the hair, and the flesh away, only the voice echoed… but that resonance didn’t last for too long. The monster moved, attracted to the burned flesh - and in first motion, it took the entire arm. It started crunching, and soon after, lured by the taste, greedily took another bite.
Adrielle had to look away. She fought the urge to vomit, and to scream in despair. It took all her strength to remain collected. Evelyn was quickly disappearing in front of everyone’s eyes, until Adrielle wasn’t able to look anymore... but Sebastian was watching the entire time. He seemed cold and distant throughout the whole thing, and quite indifferent. But that wasn’t supposed to surprise anyone. He was a demon, a
BLACK BUTLERS - In Flames (pt. 7)
PART 7 – IN FLAMES
Warning: Mentions of animal-sacrifice, disgusting monsters and people burning. Nothing you can't handle, really ^^
The carriage was now moving through the thick forest, covered in mist and accompanied by the loud sounds of heavy rain and roaring thunders. The nature was bending under the unusually large drops of water and occasional pieces of frozen ice that were making the storm dangerous for anyone who happened to be outside. The weather was nothing short of a catastrophe, but the carriage of the strange trio didn’t seem to be affected by it in any way. Other than frustrating beats of the ice at the top of the carriage, that is. Adrielle didn’t appreciate the thunders either. She wasn’t a big fan of storms in general, not even when they were conveyed by her friend, the witch.
“You should have just told me about the blood. I would have understood,” she insisted, leaning her head against the leather seat. She h
Find your way around DA #1: Pose ReferencesComing up with interesting, accurate poses for your characters can be difficult. Either they all end up looking the same, or the poses just don't look right. Drawing from a reference is a great way to practice this. Luckily, there are lots of amazing resources available to help you out, both here on DeviantArt and one the big bad WWW. I've listed the ones I know here, so you don't have to do the digging.
- I've picked resources that focus on poses, not on anatomy. This means that the drawn pose references listed here are not necessarily anatomically correct. Though the two are definitely related, to me they're not necessarily the same thing. Your anatomy might be great, but a good pose can really bring your image to life.
- This journal focuses on humans, not animals. Animal references will be listed in the next journal.
