Illiel by Sarapuu Illiel by Sarapuu
Here's my entry for GunMetalBack's Fanart Contest.

This is Illiel one of the last 3 of her kind (if I read that right)

From what I read she's pretty uber. I see her as more of the unelected leader of her group. The way Gunmetalblack drew her, she looked almost like a Japanese Noh Actor. So I wanted to keep that aspect with her.

Since she did look so Japanese I also wanted her picture to feel like a Japanese Print, so I wanted to keep her very flat looking. No Shadows, just bocks of color.

The whole thing was done with Ink, Marker, and Colored Pencils. I edited it a little in Photoshop to brighten the whole thing even more.

I hope I did her justice. There was sooo much detail in the original drawing, I really simplified her, but I still wanted some of that detail.

Oh my, the colors are so vivid and she just seems to flow through the picture. You were clearly inspired! I love it! :)

she was fun to do. I've been in a major color mood lately so it's exciting

It makes me very happy, and she's not even my character. :)

Wow, this is gorgeous Puu. She's so strong and dramatic--she does look uber. And you carried the Noh aspect through really well.

She is gorgeous, darling.

Highly doubtful. I was talking to Chris and he was putting his money on your entry, which, honestly, so am I. Your drawings of the gals are wildly good, they're tough characters, and you haven't won before. I'm betting on you.

Oooh! Nice! :) I really like what you've done here with this one, especially the way you offset all those blacks I used in her design with the bold colours. That colour-change effects coming off her hands is especially awesome. :) I was kinda curious to see what you'd come up with--the Haxan are someof my most crazy-detailed characters and never get that much favour but I like very much what you've done here. :+fav: Very well done! :D

Thank you! I tried very hard on these.

I really like the magic stuff coming from her hands. If you look its the same colors you used on her picture. Just applied differently.

You did very well with them! :D

Oh I like them too. There's something about the vibrance of them that really makes them pop off the page, and I like that quite a lot. :)
