Five by EmptyShadow Five by EmptyShadow
The wonders of fingers. While they look like awkward sticks poking out of a limb, they can do so many things. From handling delicate procedures to sending deadly forces, with the work of the rest its attached limb.

Besides fingers, bodies in general are just badass by how much can be accomplished. If you think bodies are just meat bags... look again. There is a whole new world outside and within the living organism's body.

Tried slightly different approach to coloring. Not as majestic as I wanted it to look, but I can only do so much right now. This calls for more practice.

This character looks oddly like Evi [link] . This was meant to be random, creepy female, but I changed my mind. This character generally represents what people of Evi are like. Dark haired, lemur eared, petite beings with incredible skills in their hands and feet.

Who are these beings? Their stories remain untold. Until it comes up in my plot at some point, of course. Lol I feel like I am advertising. Just excited about putting my project more out front than before, I suppose.

Anyway, I hope you guys like.

It's funny because I squeed when I saw this thumbnail thinking this was an Evi piece X3

It's really gorgeous though, I like the coloring a lot! You did a great job with giving her jewlery a nice metallic texture. :D

if I changed the shape of the eyes, I think it could have been Evi. I need to draw her more >:

Well, if you don't advertise, they won't know of the comic.:iconureshii-go-on-plz:
So it's not that bad...or is it...


At any rate, the lighting worked in it's own way, perhaps not so dramatic, but it still feels like she's going to scoop my eye out.

Hmm...any ideas on how the lighting could have been more dramatic?

I'm not so sure myself, given I'm not that good at colouring. .u.
What I usually see in dramatic lighting are like blurry/dissipating lines where the light is brightest, and a smaller area of darker shadow where it's darkest.o^o
In this case, there'd be a smaller darker area closer to the center of her face, and at the center of her hand, and then a wider lit area around the back.
It's just a suggestion from what I observed, tho...ouo;

I read it like an advertisment, hahah.
I'd consider it a detailed description that grabs the readers attention.
I love how you've done the hand gesture.

yeah I kinda do advertising... especially with single pictures (eg mother Gaia, Vincent...) and in comments like this one now...

Besides the hand gestures, I also have trouble with character height and breasts (not in a perverted H way... Just covered by a shirt or something)

I am also hiding stuff like how old some of my characters REALLY are... besides Zally who is both 14 years of appearance age and 28 years in human because she's part vampire... doing that advertising thing again... :B

I'm gonna stop now...

Not creepy at all xD
But yeah, the human body really is a work of art that many people fail to appreciate.
And, I happen to love what you did with the shading here :3

I share your opinion on the body in general. ^-^
I like this picture, the shading in her hand is particularly eye pleasing.

Funny thing about hands

having five fingers is actually a recessive trait,
the six-fingered trait is just so rare it's just about extinct
