    Rumia :D *BIG UPDATE*

    Post by Sold Out on Wed Mar 09, 2011 8:59 am

    So, I just decided to draw a Touhou character. I will never regret the day I stumbled upon Touhou related stuff.

    The lineart by itself isn't very interesting; my drawing of the character (Rumia) is... I don't know, cheap. But I did my best and I started learning about my own limits, and if I draw something again, it's probably gonna be better.

    Anyway, here it is:

    You can still find the first image HERE.



    The cross-thing is a reference to the character; Rumia thinks the way she flies, arms outstretched, resembles a crucifixion.
    She also eats people. She's the youkai (demon) of darkness. She's one of the easiest bosses in the whole series.

    Oh well, I hope you'll like it.

    Bigger Version of #1
    Bigger Version of #2

    Read the description to know why, Pipoca.

    Update: Lowered the cross' opacity a small bit.

    Fantastic Sold. Magnificent artworks as always. I dont understand why people dont appreciate artworks -.- All such works are to be respected and glorified since u dont simply scribble some lines and create art! It takes a LOT of effort to transfer the image in ur mind on paper k guys? Im serious, this isnt the 1st time im seeing and getting frustrated by criticism. This is great; an artist doesnt really care wat others think of his/her drawing> its whether he/she pleases himself/herself.

    Thanks. I know the lineart isn't really anything great, but this is my very first actual lineart, after all. (The scythe shape doesn't really count, in my opinion.)

    What I really don't get is how those pros make that really good stuff. I mean, I have seen a LOT of highquality anime pics (regularly touhou related, too) and I seriouslya have no clue on HOW. I guess it's because a greater part of them is japanese. =w=


    I really appreciate your comments and answers.

    Btw, an artist also draws to please the audiences. It's a bit of "what sayor said" and trying to impress others for me, I guess. But it is still mostly to be happy with myself; knowing I can create things.

    You would also laugh if you ever saw me in front of an empty sheet. That look is priceless; it's like "What the fuck am I supposed to do?"

    Sheesh, I need to make my thread to tell you what Touhou actually is, btw. Will do when I got some free time. I don't have much of free time recently. :X

    Oi, aren't you way too young to know terms like that? ಠ_ಠ

    Ah, anyway. ty for the comment.

    Also fixed the legs a bit; their position now makes more sense.
    I am currently checking if I can put good ol' rumia in front of a night sky and make the colors fit, but that could take a bit time.

    You can do the one thing I can't do and that's creases on clothes, the creases on the clothes I draw make em look old and saggy.

    And meh~ This new generation is full of dirty minded children xD

    Now this is what I'm talkin' about.

    One thing. The star is looking a little out of place, mainly because it's in an outline with no contrasting colours or gradients. Maybe add a glow effect to the star outline and with a different colour, seeing as a glowing red would mix with the cross and not look so good. White, perhaps?

    Heehee ^_^ fantastic update indeed. I Refuse to use techinical terms incorporated into artworks. So....what I could say now is....just add a glow around the Star's outline to make it stand out and more visible ^_<

    Partial reason for the dual pentagrams to be seen less easily is the fact that our forum's image uploader downscaled the quality of the picture. Because of that, everything ended up a lot more blurry than the original; it made the thin lines way harder to be seen.

    Now both the small and big version should look better. I took another upload site; tell me if you think it looks better now or if I still should add something to the pentagrams in terms of glowing etc. I personally think it's fine right now, since you can see the lines way better.


    P.S.: Touhou ftw, biznatchez.
