ahhhh some stuff that finally moved out of 85% done status! yes good

Ty helped encourage me to give a more ambitious shot at practicing painting using lighting on this piece. Despite all the fits of fussy-frustration I had during the process, I'm generally happy with it. I'm little bummed out that I'm so reliant on my lineart that I couldn't move into painting over the lines much, though. Maybe next time!

Viraes (vuh-ray-ez) is a Myrmidon from the west, another near ground-up revamp from my old RO Rune Knight in this dump. Most of Ty and I's MMORPG characters ended up getting re-purposed to put in this world, and since she finished getting all the races designed and posted, I thought it'd be a good time to finally finish Vir up.

Her element is fire, and ah... she's got a twisted sense of justice.
Betcha can only imagine what kind of revamp happened to her old RO travelling companion, Endlye...

music I listened to basically on repeat: Black Blade - Two Steps From Hell
done in sai over a span of an entire era of dinosaurs
a big thank you and fat sloppy kiss to Ty for helping and encouraging big dumb sulky bee :heart:
*shamelessly plugs relevant race sheet again*

thank you for the favorites/comments/watches!! :glomp:

I like the design of the armor, and the big fuck off sword establishes the fantasy design.

Gotta love the crazy over-sized swords! :giggle: Thank you very much! :heart:

I've actually been trying to make one in my forge for a couple of weeks now, but without a power hammer, that thing is a pain to work with, and even if I do finish shaping it, I realized I would need an industrial belt sander to sharpen it, and plus I'm not as experienced with tempering as I should be.

I remember I fell i love with your art because of the light, cuteness and details that you put into your pieces.  But these pics that have a darker air, a more devious one (like that glint in the knight's eye isn't just looking for trouble lol) are equally beautiful and amazing.  Great job Bee ^.^

Ahhh, this makes my day! I'm happy you came for the cute sparkly stuff- heaven knows that's my weakness- but I'm glad you can enjoy my trips into more experimental cool actiony/dark stuff too :love:
Thank you so much!

... *backs away very-VERY slowly*

S-she doesn't bite... right?

(FFFFF, for something out of your comfort zone, you did awesome! Especially the scratches in her armor... I love the scratches... OH GOD WHY AM I SUCH A SMALL ATTENTION TO DETAIL WHORE!?!?!))

Bad news siggy, she does bite. A lot. In fact, I worry she may be harboring a growing fascination with cannibalism.

*pats shoulder* 8|.....

(ALSO AUGH THANK YOU MAN NO THE SMALL DETAILING IN THE ARMOR ENDED UP BEING THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART I mean it was at the pointed encouragement of Ty as she does this with all her metal but I do feel like I am learning a lot this way orz///
