Magic And Trouble All In One by evion Magic And Trouble All In One by evion
Sky Sterling, age 17, perched atop the roof. A new planet, a new world of possible trouble she could get into. The others were probably down below, wondering where she'd gotten to. Of course, being a shapeshifter, she'd be near impossible to find if she wanted to hide. A gust of wind brushed through her glittering hair, the sun still low on the horizon. She grinned. A new day of fun had come!


This is Sky. She is a level 4 (newly leveled!) Shapechanger from BESM d20, the anime roleplaying game. She's also a bit of a kleptomaniac. And under a curse which has changed her from her original human appearance, giving her unicorn features and the powers to change her form as she wills. Now she leeches rides from a group of adventurers she's hooked up with. A free ride is always a good ride! And hijinx shall ensue!

I'm happy with how this piece turned out. I was working with shadows cast by a figure upon themselves, such as the shadow cast across her arm by her chest, or from her collar around her neck. I also used a lot of purple for the shadows, which turned out really nifty, especially using the purple on the red part of her shirt as well as the blue shadows on the teal hair. Her hair also is inspired by that of Grace from the Soulfire comic by Michael Turner. I played around with brushes to get a sparkling strand effect.

It's called Big Eyes Small Mouth, a joke on the anime stereotype style ;3 The version we play is the d20 system. It's quite fun, and really open to customizing. If you do a google search, you can probably find the publisher's webpage, they have the book in word document format available for download!

Very very nice, from each character detail to the grand sweep of the background sky. Well worth the full view, and in fact for this piece a fv is very necessary. I love your character creation process. Some people just draw a picture of whatever sits for the pose. Your characters have a twinkle in their eyes, and personality which just drips off the page.

Wow! The colouring is amazing! How long did it take?
I wish I could draw like you!
Silvermadness Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2005
Yay it's coloured! Such a gloriously coloured picture. The selection of colours is absolutely magnificence and brings a sort of...psychadelic glee to it. I really like the furr on her hooves and hands it looks very spiffeh. Hoorah!

Yay glad you like the colors! I was trying to go for a more alien sky, even started with a purple base before I added the blue. I'm definitely happy with the colors I used for Sky herself, especially the hair and her skin :d
LordDante715 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2005
she looks ever so happy
myphrill Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2005
wow this is amazing =D awesome clouds.
inked by hand?
i love the sketchyness left on the buildings =D
evion Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yep, I used HB pencils to ink her, and the buildings in the background were done on a seperate piece of paper, and I'm glad the sketchyness works for them. Might try incorporating that elsewhere in future pieces, we shall see ;)
