Meditating Iris by theartslave Meditating Iris by theartslave
I only had one other picture of her in my gallery and someone requested that I draw her as she is now for a reference, so I decided to make this.

I also finally found a good way to color in her rainbow hair...which I never got quite right, so I'm glad that came out okay this time. :)

She is a character from a story I am planning on turning into a comic one of these days!

This was drawn out in pencil and colored in Photoshop with my tablet.

Enjoy!!!

Those pretty dark eyes and rainbow hair made me stop to wonder what the hell I should comment on this drawing...
I really like the color scheme in the dress.
The cloud are pretty nice, I love that they don't have a LOT of details. It makes you focus on the character rather than the background :3
The melting candle is so nice as well, gives off this warm feeling.

Thank you so much for your nice comments! The point was to give off a warm feeling to the character, and I'm glad that comes across! :)

Excellent job on the coloring!
I love the hints of rainbow colors in her hair, it really adds a lot to it and great job on the overall feel.
The highlights and light effects also turned out well :)

Very nice :D

Her hair is gorgeous (actually the whole picture is, it has a strange serene-dark feel). I love it. ^-^

Yaaaay! I love the whole candle thing... now that I think of it I've never seen Yunsaa's son either ^^; *waits for you to kill me*

But this is absolutely gorgeous! I LOVE her hair... from what you described of her it would be hard to make her a bad character... my three bad girls are really rotten!

And yes, I believe that the "N" thing is entirely coincidental ;)

I also love how you used the paint tool on her dress... the flowers look great :D

Hahahaha, yeah....XDDD It's okay. I have a vague idea of what he'll look like, but I'm still not sure enough to post pictures :P

COINCIDENTAL I SWEAR. XDDD I only actually realized the coincidence when my art teacher asked me about it XP

No problem :hug:

So is Iris the same kind as Otis? Or is she a species of her own? Their son will look pretty neat I'm sure ^_^

Oh wow really? XDD I guess it's just instinct. It would be like me naming something "K." Sometimes I do something like that without even realizing it XP

Well, Otis and Iris are from the same species, but Iris looks more alien than Otis does :) It's all part of le story :giggle:

Yeah, I'm serious!! hehehe XD
