The Other Side by BloodyRosalia The Other Side by BloodyRosalia
I know my anatomy instinct is going haywire right now :/

This goes along with my procrastination >.> I was snowed in and I just couldn't do anything that I should/promised I'd be doing not to mention my eyesight has been reduced dramatically with this piece. sorry everyone...

No particular character this time, obviously. I'm just... doing whatever was on the top of my head.

Artist Notes:
-What's with the hair? I know it's a bit purple :/ I wanted to be plain and use black, but the vibrant colors got to me. And the inking was a nightmare, and barely consistent (so totally a bad haircut lol)
-And the well-recognized large head...This side view reminds me of the Emerald Garden ([link]) thing I did back then, and the head was still large :/ lol it's narrower now...
-Fire was probably the only thing I could think of to represent spirits for the priestess design. And I always love the blue and red and black collision, so forgive me if the tones are too strong, I really spent a long time on adjusting opacity...
-The Chinese characters are soooo fake. Don't try to learn them or anything .__.
-I think I should slap myself for giving into the black BG, but honestly anything would've been too bright with the patterns...I also noticed this is my second time using pink as the eye color, but I really intended red.
-I believe I combined like... 5 different kinds of spirit charms in this one...The mirror... isn't really a mirror, in the sense the flame inside of it is white-ish.

Ipad, 2 Days- 8-10 Hours what am I doing with my life //shot

Another beautiful piece of artwork. The colors and glowing flames/circles thingys in the background are so pretty!

You were so close to writing the Chinese character for moon there~ You just missed one stroke but nevermind the flame kinda partially covers it :P

Thank you~
moon? where?! meh, I wasn't going for anything in particular, the BG patterns were just... idk random repetition.

You're very welcome.

Middle sash, bottom symbol with the blue flame next to it.

Actually, I was writing the old Chinese character for door (門) there, now that I think about it...(it does looks like 月 with the obstruction...)
