Create-a-nin - Iwane by matsunoki Create-a-nin - Iwane by matsunoki
This is for 's contest in which participants are given a description via a randomizer (?) and then must draw the character being described...

What i got was:

"This secretive female ninja is very short and has an elegant build. Her wide eyes are red. She has curly orange hair. Her outfit includes a lot of belts. She uses a brutal form of martial arts that emphasizes breaking an opponent's bones. Her preferred weapon is a whip. She is skilled in breakfall and socializing. She can merge with rock."

-----------------------

Coming up with this character was quite fun. Challenges were inevitable specially when you only have to rely on a paragraph for reference.. XD My favorite thing about this character was the belt thingie.. i really brain stormed hard on how to make the belt not make the character a bondage uke. XD Also, the character's weapon can also serve as a belt and a bone breaking tool that can sometimes deflect kunai's. :)

The color wasn't really that hard for i relied on the last part of the description.. "...she can merge with rock..". So her color palette is based from the most simple rock/stone colors. (Which i hope i got right... )

-----------------------

I have already screwed up with another project... so poor Iwane was left to be rendered with flat colors T_T. But a re-color will be possible for this.. coz i love this piece all in all. There might be proportion problems.... but now i know better! :lmao:

Hopefully this gets accepted... (Don't you just love one click sending via Note?.. :giggle: )


Koishi Iwane Me.

:wave: Hey there! You did a great job with this. I like how you stuck to the description perfectly, but you still gave it your own original touch. I especially love how you did her hair! The details on her outfit are superb as well. I love seeing you submit art! :heart:

I love the belt designs on her outfit! It's looks incredibly cool!:thumbsup:
I think you did pretty well fulfilling the project given to you! Nice resolving on the color scheme by using rock colors! =)
The circles on the left really compliments the character's whip! You have a great sense of design! *Praise*
