Shadow of Soul by duranin Shadow of Soul by duranin
UBER SHINYNESS.

I have been trying to move away from my low-quality chibis. Soft shading and painting hasn't proven helpful, so I'm trying to go in another direction.

This is a character I haven't drawn for a while. 3/31 marks the first anniversary of Asmodian Soul's deletion. As such I thought it appropriate (and inspiring) to draw some updated art this month, in honor of Soul.

Some things have changed most notably the skin/hair tone. The skin is a result of bad colour picking, but I suppose it makes her look more Asmodian. The hair is closer to the dark grey that Soul had prior to her plastic surgery ticket, whereupon I changed it to a light silver. Yet I draw her with her post-"surgery" hairstyle. This is a symbol of how the core of her being, the characteristics she was born with, do not change, but things like hairstyles can and do.

ahahah good observation. I have a lot of trouble drawing noses XD I don't like the overly simplified anime pointy noses, but full out realism doesn't look right with my face drawing style either. I tried to imply nostrils but I guess it didn't work out ;p

Thanks for the comment though! I'll play around with it later.

Very nice picture. I like the way you did the hair, face and cloths. : ) I'm not sure I know what an Asmodian but I do like the choice of skin color. ^.^ Very nice pic.
