All Us Raptors - flats by Horus-Goddess All Us Raptors - flats by Horus-Goddess
[edit] I just noticed I need to add the zipper under Masurao's kneepad things on his left pant leg. lol. It was something else I had forgotten when I drew this initially. lol. I'm too tired to do it now... will do it later. zzzzz :dies:


Thought I might as well submit this in progression shots for the hell of it lol. Since I'm really freakin' tired, I will not be saying too much.. but I might come back and edit this more later.

Some updates since the [lineart version] are, I fixed Zetsumei's right foot- now the sickle claw is on the correct side. X3 And obviously I have the flat colors done for this so far. I'll be putting in a BG towards the end probably or maybe next time I sit and work on this. I wanna set interesting lighting to try something new since my lights and darks are usually so black and white (as in, normal nothin' special). I wanna put them on a rocky cliff type thing within a jungle somewhere. I'll probably make the image canvas size a lot bigger so I can have a lot of fun with it. This image might be one of those longer projects. :nod:

Anyway for those who don't know, the characters are all my friends' characters except for Masurao (the red one).


From left to right:

+ [Masurao] (=Horus-Goddess (me))
+ [Zetsumei] (~darkenedbloodwings)
+ [Abydos] (=Nanuka)
+ [Ewan] (=RizyuKaizen)

For more info and backstory on these guys and my friends etc, visit the [lineart version]. I don't have the energy to explain it all again lol. I'll probably write more in the final submission of this pic some time later on.

But anyway... there they all are. ^^


time: So far... around 6 hours or more. O_o
completed: October 18th 2005
music: Gackt (a bunch of his albums, too many to name lol)
medium: #2 .05mm lead mechanical pencil for sketch, SuperFine Faber Castell inking pen for lineart, Drawn on 8.5"x11" cardstock (heavy with a smooth finish). Editing and CG done in Photoshop 7.0

Masurao, the Swyft Claw race and artwork copyright 2005 Marie Whatley (=Horus-Goddess)

Ooo, I like this. For some reason, there's something I really like about a bunch of people's characters being together and interacting, or just somebody drawng a bunch of their characters interacting. So, needless to say, I like this. Not to mention, all of their designs are wonderfully creative and very appealing to the eye. They all contrast nicely, in my humble opinion. Very nice.

Wa! So cool! I have to add them both.

Amazing use of placing those characters by all those seperate artists in your own style, I know of all the works associated with every single raptor from the time when people were accusing Rizu down to Darkened Blood wings amazing lineart, and of course who could even begin to forget Nanuka and all the tragic drama queen incidents you two have shared, you have quite an amazing history on this net, I don;t think I could forget you if I tried.

Flats can be the most tedious part of the colouring. They males are all so smirky, it's cute! They kinda smirk in the way that the guy on the motorcycle smirked when he realized I was checking him out - that cute way that kinda makes you want to pinch their cheeks. Or pat their heads. I really have a thing for running my hands through guys hair, it's so nice! OH man! I saw this guy today who I named Gabrielle because he's so bloody androgynous it's amazing and vaguely scary and he had the most beautiful, shiney auburn hair. It was chin length and so soft and pretty and he had this pale skin and bright turquoise eyes and he was like some angel that had walked out of a painting. It was freakish and amazing and I want to find him again. He totally noticed I was staring at him as I ran on that treadmill and he was running on the track and he'd look at me and then be all like "Ah! I'm not looking!" and look at the ground or in the opposite direction and lick his lips and stuff. SO cute, it was funny. Yup. So the picture's absolutely awesome! Ahahhaah.a.....a.aa....totally got off topic, I'm sorry.
