EDIT:
Btw, did I mention that 'Soulless' is such a weird word?!

/EDIT

Painting practice! Still keeping to my resolve of uploading to dA more often (practice = perfect yarrrr).

Omg, Augustus pin stripes took ages! As well as his tie and armband hahah. Originally I was experimenting with a darker background as I wanted a 'bokeh' type effect like you get with photos but I couldn't find a good colour combination. Oh well!

Pretty happy with the shading technique (yay getting faster) but still trying to find a style that I'm happy for the lineart. I don't enjoy using photoshop's pen tool as the pressure points are just all over the place, I'd must prefer to draw the line art in straight but it just looks messy. I'll find a good style one day lol.

Augustus on his off days when he's not a raving looney.

Okay...nearing 7am...should stop rambling...night all -____-!

Augustus/Fallacy's Lore (c) belong to my brain.

Wow, it's really cool. You've done a brilliant job with the clothing, and the hair makes me fangirl.

Thanks a lot :hug:

I do have a slight weakness for uniforms and suits&ties :3~ Hehe! Which part do you find most attractive? Hair colour? Hair style? I did originally plan to go with the blond hair/blue eyes combo but that's a bit generic so I decided to invert it and see what what happens lol.

Hair style is weakness at knees. Hair colour with that beautiful tie is amazing. The absolute colour is fantastic too.

I love the unusual hair colour/eye colour because it's so out of the ordinary but I think it should be done carefully, but this definitely worked and some more.

Hey, thank you for the kind comment o^----^o

Adorable badasses are awesome no? :la: I wasn't too sure about the blue but I am liking it a lot more now :V

my pleasure :3
your drawing skills really are something for sure

adorable badasses are the best! :D
look here: [link]
it's one of my badass OCs (the worst one) drawn by my illustrator *HakkyouHime
he's defined by the colours red (hair), blue (clothes (well, not here - for some reason)) and green (eyes) *fufufu*
(the one in the dress is a guy actually XD)

and I love blue-haired badass characters! it makes them somewhat melancholic ;)

Omg HakkyouHime is so talented >w<! I want to improve the quality of my drawings/paintings more ahhh!

Ooer...red hair and green eyes <3! What kind of badass is he? Psycho badass? He's kind of the playful type judging from the picture? :) (Poor guy in the dress! But it looks like he's alright with it...XD!)

Ye! I tried to incorporate a bit of colour theory, yet I wanted the colours to portray the complexity of the character. A flashy bad-ass type of character but human enough to have his 'off' days ^ ^

Thanks~:heart:

thanks a lot
I'm more than glad that I found her and that she loves my novel and especially that she is willing to draw illustrations for me
and I love your drawings as well, hon. I think you are very talented

yeah, he is the worst psycho badass ever. that's why he loves to play with his prey -- a lot! :evillaugh:
(poor he is for sure XD and believe me he's totally NOT alright with it! XDD)

I think you did a great job with the colours and the complexity of the character. one can tell at first sight he has more than one faces :3

Aw~ I'd really like to read some of your stories now >3<, I find it a lot clearer looking through Hime's illustrations <3.

XD What are the characters in the pic called? I'd like to know more about psycho badass XD

And thank you! I'll keep it up ^_^. I do like complex characters (like the psycho characters) even though they are seen as very twisted...I'm curious as to how characters like that become who they are. That's pretty dark...well I like dark stuff...more interesting fufufu >:]

aww, thank you so much :heart:
I really wish you were able to read them ^^'

the psycho badass (red one) is called Gi-nattai. he also appears here: [link] (unfortunately it's yet to finish)
he's the big mystery in my story. nobody knows anything about him. but his existence is recorded for more than hundred years now (comment Hiromasa: 'but no human lives that long.' Suzuki: 'right.' Hiromasa: 'you mean... he isn't human?' Suzuki shrugs: 'I don't know. nobody knows.')
whenever he shows up he's leaving deep uneasiness

the blond one is Hiromasa, the first-person-narrator of my novel. for more information and pictures links look here: [link]

the black haired guy in the back is Hiromasa's teacher Suzuki. he's quite a badass too XD a withdrawn and often misunderstood being. for more info and pics you can look here: [link]

I still need to make the memes for Gi-nattai and Akihito (the other villain of my story)
damn writer's block >.<

but thank you very much for being interested in my characters :3 :hug:


and yeah, I like the twisted badass characters the most too. they are just more interesting and one always wonders what might go on behind their superficial fassade :3

oooh!! That is an EPIC dragon behind Gi-nattai! Looks awesome :D An evil bad ass spanning across time is even cooler :V.

Cool I'm looking forward to more of your character memes :) If you'd like to bounce ideas off with me, that's also cool I am willing to help ^ ^.

I do like the mix the traditional onmyouji styles with the modern styles so I'd really like to see the the finished versions when they're done!

(Bad-asses FTW!!! :D) :hug:

soulless? Kinda weird, but if pronounce it withouth knowing what soulless is, it's already a name!~

True! I just had mini brain implosion when I was trying to figure out the spelling for that. It looked really weird with two L's but that's actually how it is spelt according to Google!

Thanks for comment :D~
