At first, this one was going to be a picnic scene. The girl was wearing a close fit summer dress, her hair was up in a bun, and she had her hands down holding a blanket. There was a basket in front of her as well. But when I tried to put the guy in it, he just didnt seem to fit the scene at all. No matter what I did, the drawing would just not want to look right. So, I decided, I would have her arms out, as they are now. But I was not sure what I wanted her to be doing. And while I was staying after for one of my classes the other day, I figured it out. A phrase came to mind. "Summoning the Dead". So, I went to work. My friend said her dress looked like a wedding dress. >_> Well, thats not at all what I intended it to be. And its not. I just wanted her to look like that. Yes that is a skeleton arm coming out of the ground, and its touching the ends of her hair. For the head coming out of the tombstone and the arm I used references from a site, and the spirit skeleton head which I will admit looks abit more cartoon like then the other one (because its the first one I did from memory) The second I did from reference. Her hair was shorter, but it looked better longer. This is my first time doing lace, and I think I did pretty well. I shaded her arm sleeved darker around her arms because they are see-through, as well as on the under layer of her dress. Hope you all enjoy.

    This is a really nice doujin. I hope to see more from you. :)

    Impressive work on your doujin, Evan! The female character's dress looks pretty cool, you even put sum nice details on her sleeves, nifty idea! Plus the summoned skulls and spirits give your doujun a plus for creep factor, and how you drew the skeleton's hand popping out of the grave is out there! Great work, Evan! :)

    ... first, it was a picnic scene.... now it's called summoning the dead. Two practically different things....... :sweat: haha

  14. LucyXlostangelwings Apr 28, 2005

    Whao!! There's something special about this..... for one, it's a great drawing with so much details! Second, the concept is great! You've captured the mood perfectly, creating a sense of fright and an evil atmosphere. The skulls and skeleton hand looks scary, and are nicely done! ^_~ First time doing lace? Well I'd say you have definitaly succeeded! Another fab doujinshi from you Evan-san! XD I really love it! *adds to favs*

  15. calisqo Apr 28, 2005

    nice work.
    The char is pretty nice.
    There's sense of motion on the drawing which is rare ion most doujinshi .
    A bit works here and there, perhaps the neck area for me.
    Noetheless awesome effort , and cool drawing ^_^

  16. Ying Apr 28, 2005

  22. Jormungand Apr 29, 2005

    Whee~! very nice drawing~!
    Creepy yet beautiful...
    I really love the details on her dress... great work! ^.~
    i think it would look even better with a darker background...
    but shading the whole background is going to be a lot of work... I don't usually do that either, so nevermind me XD
    anyhoo, great drawing
    I can see the amount of work you put into this one :D

  23. GintheTwilightswords Apr 29, 2005

    It is gorgeous XD !! I love the way she looks, she's so beautiful *swooning* . Her dress is very detail, I like the lace designs in it. The idea to have floating skeleton heads and the hadn coming out the ground is brilliant :D . Magnificient work Lady Evanrued ^uu^.

  24. walkure245 Apr 30, 2005

    Wowowo~ Gothic. Me likies. I love the dress. I love the details on her top. But I can't believe she's stepping on her dress. Noo~ Also, you draw skulls and bones really well. Mine's always look weird. >_< The hand coming out of the grave is an awesome idea. But I would freak if I were her. Oh well~ This is an awesome drawing! ^_^
