GiftART- Washi Hane by Horus-Goddess GiftART- Washi Hane by Horus-Goddess
PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION BEFORE ASKING QUESTIONS OR ASSUMING ANYTHING! THANKS! :D

Here is my friend Dagger's character, Washi Hane. He's also joint created with =Nanuka as well. I liked his character design a lot, and the whole American Indian theme Nanuka's race has really appeals to me since my boyfriend is of American Indian heritage and I also really admire their culture and generosity. Not too fond of how the USA you see today began... I always thought the indians were the most generous people I've seen. But anyway. :blahblah:

Yeah, I liked him so I drew him. I may draw Nanuka's character Abydos if I can, I just need to get permission. I've started CGing this picture but I like it better without, so I may just leave it as is. I hope you both like it, 'Nuka and Dagger. :hug:


time: 2 or so hours.
completed: January 27th, 2006
music: Linkin Park: Hybrid Theory, Linkin Park: Meteoria, Nami Tamaki: Greeting
medium: pink Col-Erase pencil and 0.5mm #2 mechanical pencil on 8.5" x 11" Cardstock (heavy, smooth finish).

Artwork copyright 2006 Marie Whatley (=Horus-Goddess)
Character copyright 2005 Dagger and Nanuka (ARF) (=darkenedbloodwings and =Nanuka)

You three, you, 'Nuka, Riz, are about the best anthro character creators, specially for the Reptilian (raptor) type...
Very cool just to even be able to see the stuff you people create, Luff it! ^.=.^

I love your soft shading. Especially in the face, it makes it look so soft and, I don't know, fragile. It really looks like she's dreaming. (I'm a freak, I tend to like your pencil works more than the coloured versions, exactly because of the soft quality of the shading, it looks really good with hair, too.)

Your sketching is really awsome, mines always come out so messy, im more of a messy artist tho I guess. But I must admit, I do love your sketching style.

Your skills with the pencil are so admirable...I love the clean line and smooth shading, it's so finely done one could hardly tell it was a pencil, save for the colour. :P

^_^ thankie! I appreciate your compliments (on this and the other artwork of mine you've commented on). I probably wont color this since what I'd had in mind would take a really long time... I might at a later time though. I'm not sure...

anywho, thanks again. :3

Np, I really enjoy watching your artwork. I think it looks fine without colour too; in this case it lets you focus more on the textures and features of the character. :)

lol, thanks so much. And if I knew where to get talent then I'd direct you there but... unfortunately it takes it being either hereditary or a hell of a lot of determination to become that good at art.... I've come across a few people on deviantART who started out crappy but became some of the most famous people here because they were that determined, so I guess it's not necessarily your born talent but more your drive to do what you must to become as great as you'd like to. ^^
