A Little Bit of RokuRei by aragorn1014 A Little Bit of RokuRei by aragorn1014
Art trade with ~sabishiidesu13!!<333
Her Kingdom Hearts OC, Rei and Roxas!<3 Because I love RokuRei<3

She already completed her half...more than a year ago! OTL I'm SOOO sorry for the lateness... *sighs* Just to give you all an idea of how late this is, she finished her half in August of LAST year. OTL

So yes...I'm a horrible fail and I'm so sorry I took this picture to experiment with some things, but I really like it actually, so I hope you do too, Ima-chan!

Anyways...long time no submit guys!! I'm REALLY sorry I haven't been around, but I literally JUST finished the heap load of work I have been doing, particularly study abroad applications and such. @__@

Several things to point out that I did in terms of experimentation:
1) SIMPLE CONCEPT. xD I haven't tried doing something this simple since 2008 with my Peek into Wonderland picture LOL. So this time I tried to go for blatantly simple so see if I could do it.

2) Second time doing pencil lineart since a Cloud drawing I did...I think in 2007? Haha I wanted to see if I had improved any and I want to say I did? OTL not sure...but it was a HEINOUS process and i'm probably never doing lineless ever again. xD

3) I realize I've never done a canvas where two people are upside down from one another xD So yeah. haha or if I have, I just don't remember. LOL

And those are about it!! It's kind of messy OTL but it's not as bad as I thought it'd be and honestly I think it turned out pretty well. ^^ I like how it turned out overall and I hope you all do too!!

Thank you SO much Ima-chan for doing this (SUPER BELATED) trade with me!! I'm sorry it doesn't compete with your lovely half OTL but I hope you like it nonetheless because it was SO much work. @__@ Half of the problem was due to my experimenting with it LOL sorry! ^^;

Anyways, it's great to be back everyone and hopefully I'll see you all around soon!! (I'll work on comments and messages dakhglasdg!)

Take care everyone!

This is really beautiful, I love the way you coloured this.
I remember this character on Theotaku XD! USED to draw her all the time and stuff, or I saw her being drawn and stuff like that

I really like the way you shaded the hair man that's cool.
I also like the way you laid them floating upside down from each other.

It's alright ;x; I HOPE she sees it and like it.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK SAYURAAAAAAA~!
It's so nice seeing your work again

Aww thanks so much Koii-chan!! I KNOW, Rei was like...THE KH CHARACTER to draw!! haha because I think out of all of us, she, Rika and Sayoko were the most famous xD I drew quite a bit of art of her back in the day..but man that was such a long time ago haha.

Thank you!<3 I wanted to keep it simple(but of course, detail gets the best of me..).
She did see it(she actually texted me about it LOL) and she even made it her desktop background! asdkghlas

I'll have to post up more work! Thanks for always supporting me, Koii-chan! >.<

KSADGHLASGD I KNOW!! <3 So much nostalgia whenever I draw other people's KH OCs! >.< It makes me want to draw my own more(as I never really drew a lot of art of my own characters to begin with..which I really need to fix OTL).
Haha I wanted simple and I thought this concept would be cute SHE EVEN MADE IT HER DESKTOP BACKGROUND ASKGHALSG TOO NICE T___T.
THANK YOU!~ His hair was actually the longest and most difficult part to do LOL so I'm glad you noticed it! >.< Your comments are always just so kind wahhh! T__T I don't deserve them! haha

I loooove your coloring in this! *0* I have to say, your coloring always impresses me. :,) it especially looks great on Roxas's hair. It looks like it would've taken a long time... but those shines look great! xD I think the simple theme is also very nice. c: Action poses and the like are cool too, but sometimes it's just nice to draw something simple but effective. xD I think it came out great! Fantastic job as always, Sayura-chan! :>

Awww thank you SO much Akioh-chan!! >.< Coloring is actually what I struggle with most, because I can't seem to find anything consistent or anything that I like OTL but thank you so much! I'm glad you think Roxas' hair turned out well, because it was kind of a pain because it took so long to do. xD

aragorn1014 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012  Student General Artist
Haha I'm not even sure, really. xD Textures probably play a part in it, but I think my coloring style is just naturally that way...which in a way, can be kind of a bad thing because then I just get stuck in that. xD I'm trying to work on using harder brushes and blending, but keeping strokes light is a huge part of making a picture look soft I think. haha

My god, I can't believe that this is done digitally! It looks exactly like your traditional( in a sense of the softness of the coloring and details and whatnot) This is amazing! The whole composition is just fantastic. God, you did an awesome job with this! I'm sure this was well worth the wait for her!
Keep up the amazing work aragon! <3

Hahaha I want to say that's a compliment, so thank you! xD I actually want to make it so that it doesn't look anything like my traditional work, but that'll be a long time down the road sadly. OTL I'm so happy you like it though! (and hey, I think your traditional work is pretty darn soft if you ask me <3)
She said that she loved it and even made it her desktop wallpaper!! adkghsaldghasg so I'm ecstatic about that ^^
Thank you so so much KPC-chan!<33

Hahaha no no no, I didn't take it that way at all! xD I just mean like...well, I guess my goal with digital art is for it NOT to be so close to my traditional, you know? haha xD I'm sorry if I sounded rude or something by saying that! >.< I just meant that as a reference toward my not having confidence in my digital ability, I guess >.< OTL
Awww well thank you! I'm hoping to have mastery of both traditional and digital aesthetics in the long run, so that means a lot. <3 Love you KPC-chan!

Sayura-chan! oh man your digital coloring is so neat (as in clean, and cool)! roxas's hair is so shiny and I really like the tone of blond that you used. just wondering, how many hours did you approximately spend on this?
and yeah... I totally get the whole owing art scenario... I'm so late on mine people must think I forgot lol
sounds like you've been busy, but in a nice and productive way =] At least you're on break now, right?

aragorn1014 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012  Student General Artist
xDD I actually felt otherwise about this looking clean/neat, but thanks Snow-san!<3
Omg you don't even want to know how long this took.. xD I tried to finish Roxas' hair in one sitting, but it didn't happen and his hair alone probably took at least 3-4 hours...(and it doesn't look like it, I know, but still) xD The whole pic took about 8-10 hours probably? Maybe more than that though, considering how difficult color choices and the lineless look were T__T Complete experimentation happening..and never again will I repeat this technique LOL.
Hahaha I owe Bic-chan art from more than a year ago LOL and also with the immense pressure from her art skill, I've got a lot of work to do OTL. In any case though, it should be fun! ^^
And yes, I am!<3 Thank goodness for break haha. How about you??
And thanks so much for the feedback! >.< You're too sweet! *hugs*

Ehh but it is!! especially compared to my stuff XD
woww your patience and determination is astounding! I could never spend that much time on just one part of the picture... but the quality really shows, I can see his hair taking that long XD
I think it's awesome to experiment though! well it kinda sucks when I look at my gallery and there's hardly any common factors, especially in terms of coloring, but it's just so much fun! and yeah you find out what works and what doesn't lol
I totally know what you mean, I owe her my part of the trade too ><
I have my last exam tomorrow, so off to study now orz though I really should already be *_*

Thanks so much, Snow-san!<3 I really have a difficult time experimenting when it comes to ANYTHING though, so that's something art is making me learn how to do properly xD I wish I were more like you and a lot more bold! @__@
Haha hopefully you and I can both finish our halves with her soon! xD She's actually pretty darn fast when she's interested in working on something, now that I think about it =P
Aww good luck on that last exam!! YOU CAN DO IT!!<3333 ^^

I have trouble experimenting with new stuff too, but with drawing, I figure it's just for fun anyway, and even so, I wish I really were as bold as you say XD
well I'm done my art trade now (mostly b/c I was just reading noblesse and really wanted to draw m-21 anyway XD), so I'm looking forward to whatever epicness you end up producing =]

So fast!! Haha I'm only 5/9 done with my picture(well more like 5/10 if you include edits and stuff but yeah xD), so I'm working on it! It's a really long process >.< I'll come by to comment your art trade pic soon!<3 IT'S GORGEOUS. >.<

I think it came out really nice, and there's nothing wrong with experimenting on a person's request. (sometimes it comes out better than you'd ever imagined ;)) Anyway, I love how your digital works always have this traditional feel to them. Like, I have no idea how you got that texture-look with SAI's brushes. And I love your pencil to digital conversions as well. The lineless look is very nice! Another thing I like is Rei; I haven't seen her in quite some time and I recall the drawing you made of her YEARS ago. She looks cool in your style, and it's been fun to see her change as Funi's style developed.
And LONG TIME NO TALK!!! Gah, this semester was the busiest I've been yet and so much has happened since the summer. will have to write you a letter and tell you about it Anyway, I hope everything's going good for you and you enjoyed your semester. I really enjoyed mine, but the work load...

Aww thank you so much Kaijin!! And this is true haha, usually for the pieces where one doesn't try, the work turns out better xD
I find that kind of..a good and bad thing haha because I find digital actually really difficult to do, which is maybe why I always end up making it look so traditional in the end. LOL This picture actually took quite a bit of time..particularly Roxas' hair due to the lineless effect I got with the pencil xD But thank you!<3 I'm glad you like it!~
Omg I know...I kind of miss Rei's previous design before this one, but it's been fun to watch her hair and style change as Ima-chan grew as an artist too. It's definitely a huge change from when I drew her many years back haha. ^^
I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW!! Haha and take your time on that letter! I know we've both been up to our heads in work until now! xD I hope you get some time to get some art in and that your semester ended well too!<3 Thanks so much Kaijin! *super hugs* It's great to hear from you always!
