Kirone by Sarapuu Kirone by Sarapuu
Here is my 2009 entry for the Gunmetalblack contest!

I chose badass Kirone. She was in color but with the way I had it she seemed a bit more garish than she usually is so I greyscaled the whole bloody thing. As I was drawing her, I also came to the conclusion from looking at the original...some of these characters must spend several hours just getting dressed! Kirone did not have an ounce of skin showing! So I simplified her design a bit (per usual, actually) and gave her a bit of a sexier version of her outfit.

I then redrew part of the blood fountain that was a fairly recent arrival in Gunmetalblack's gallery because I thought it suited Kirone.

I hope everyone enjoys this!

Ooh, nice redesign! I love the skimpy new outfit and her cheerful pose.

And double points for pulling in the blood fountain, that's just awesome.

Now I just need to get off my ass and start working on my entry!!

Funnily enough--the Bloodpool pic did, in fact, start out as a BG for a possible Kirone pic. Then it got completely out of control and became it's own pic.

This is pretty awesome! I like the grayscale feel--it looks kind of like a wash-style pic. :) I never much thought about the density of costuming in SSL (I mean, aren't ALL my costumes full of detail and impractical?) but I think you found a nice compromise here. :) Excellent work! Very well done!

It did, the problem was I was too lazy to draw all that and her. :)

You did great! :)

Can I just say that I think the notion that you're going backward is nonsense? Because this is very artfully executed!

Using the fountain was a great idea, which makes it almost seem like fate that it showed up so recently. I'm glad you retained the textures you added too, as I think they add a lot.

The greyscale gives the background especially the dark and moody feel. I think it works well with the vampire theme.
