Iris for Animeshikanai by OchreJelly Iris for Animeshikanai by OchreJelly
This is my second try at this, I actually uploaded it once before, but went back to the (almost literal) drawing board and fixed a lot of stuff, most notably the sword and arms. Anyway, this is *Michelle84's character Iris, whom a lot of you probably know of. Requested by *Animeshikanai with the permission of Michelle. :)

Done in Painter and Paint Shop, too many hours to count. XD Hope you both like it, :] A special thanks goes to ==ScarletHawk and =frozenlilacs for critiques and feedback on this one, along with those of you who mention points last time I uploaded.

Weirdly, this looks a little like Michelle. XD

EDITED ALREADY: Fixed her eyes. >_<

I know you have critique discouraged. But just for future reference.... more fat on the fingers. These chicks are warriors... they aren't going to have really tiny fingers :) They are going to have STRONG hands and fingers.
Also, if the lips are going to be large, I think a larger chin would be a good idea.
Hmm... I'm thinking that I've already commented on this one because I specifically remember the feather

Perhaps, but I don't mind another comment. Your criticism is well-taken, I think you are right about that. I have a tendency to draw long willowy fingers and it's not always a good thing. I'll keep it in mind, thanks! Also about the chin too. :nod:

I never commented on this, did I ? (at least not on DA)

You did beautiful job on this :D I think out of the portrait commissions this is one of my favourites.. (if not the favourite one)

I like a lot how you drew her face, the colors you chose, and how soft it all looks. The background is very befitting as well- wonderful job altogether!

I think over MSN/AIM, yes. After all, you helped me pick out some errors and gave me an idea or two. :]

Anyway, I'm really quite happy you like it. Honestly, this was interesting because I really almost never work with light pinks and teals like Michelle often does with her drawings and characters, so it was a challenge. I should do it more often because there's a lot of colour possibilities with them.

Anyway, thanks again for the comment. :D

Thanks. I tried something new with the eyes, compared to the previous version, and I think it turned out far better than the other one. ^^; Anyway, glad you like it.

Wow, thank you for putting so much effort into this! You really REALLY didn't have to work so hard but thank you. You're right, Iris strangely does resemble Michelle in your work. Interesting. Thanks again!

Nah, it was my pleasure. XD A little extra effort is all worth it when someone likes it. XD As for the resemblence, I have no clue where it comes from...I think it's the eyes. Hmm. Oh well, glad you like it, the print is on it's way soon. :D

Coolness. Its amazing. Over the holidays I think I did 3 or more of those "holiday bust commission" things to help out artist. You're the only one who stuck with it. Congrads and thank you. I only feel bad that you received so little for all you did. Hope the print earns you some cash. :nod:

You uploaded this before? Gah, LOL I must have somehow missed it in my message box the first time. :dance: It's Iris! XD XD, I really love how you portrayed her in your realistic style :nod:. You got the colors just right XD and the way you did the gold looks so pretty! I also really love how you varied the hues of violet in her outfit from cooler to warmer. It makes it look so rich and iridescent :XD:. :+fav: ^_______^

It was only up for a bit, I took it down to fix stuff and try and make it better. Only a few people saw it. :D

But, anyway, I'm very happy you like it, a little extra effort is worth it for a :dance: and a :+fav:. XD Some day I'd like to draw a proper picture of Iris, if only because elf-eared girls with swords is so completely up my alley. ;p

Thanks again!

you do requests?
As in like if someone just asked you to draw something or some OC you would?
Or if someone asked you how you would draw seomthing like a line or phrase(as in what comes to mind)) you would?
Sorry I must sound so bad but I think thats soo cool.
