Tainted Red 2 by nanami-yuki Tainted Red 2 by nanami-yuki
Original Characters... Cyan and Skye. It's been a very long time since I outlined anything in ink, so it took longer than I planned to finish. Tho I ended up covering most of the outlines anyway when I colored it.
Mostly Photoshoped, which is rare cuz I am an Open Canvas junkie.:heart: ^_^

Tainted Red 2 by ~nanami-yuki

The suggester wrote: "The first thing that hits me are the colours. So many of them all over this piece of work! Your gaze travels from the calm, night sky, to the shiny surrounding buildings looming over the two characters. And then, you catch sight of what the guy on the right is looking at, the little pink flower in the foreground.

It's all utterly perfect. I love the angle that we see the scene from, it seems the whole world is curved over that gorgeous glowing sword, and the delicate little flower. It's an absolutely stunning piece, from the background, to the characters, and you can really see the time and effort put into it." ( Suggested by synconi and Featured by Damaged927 )

I love your style!

I like the colors, how everything is glowing but how all the colors are included, not just glowing colors like yellow or orange, but also blues and greens.

I also like how up close it's out of focus. Really realistic detailed.

All the designs make the whole thing look so magical. Very beautiful.

And the character designs. Really interesting! One is adorned in jewelry and the other's clothing looks all tattered. I wonder what kind of characters they would be!

foxthief14 Featured By Owner Mar 7, 2009
Cyan and Skye. Those are really cool character names. Reminds me of my two characters name Hunter and Carter,who are starring in my journal novel as heroic mischief makers with a brainy bookworm named Dianna{so basicly its like another hp problem though i don't want it to be like that! Can you help me?
zeromay Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2009

The thumbnail of this reminded me of the movie Tekkonkinkreet, with the two young characters and the warm-colored city in the background.
