This Doujin, which I really wanted to draw. Is for a special someone. OracleAngel, this one is for you. I wanted to draw the beauty you always express through your work. So I drew Sophia Forrester from Last Exile as the Empress. Hope you like it ^^;

I used her character sketches from the Last Exile Character Filegraphy 2 doujinshi book, which are now out of print in Japan including the first one and the 3 and 4th. *sighs with relief because she has them* I studied almost every detail about her Empress outfit, and tried to compact every single one into the drawing. I really do love this one. I am going to do a line of this one and color it.

Hope you all enjoy!

    Always such great art from you. I like it. One day, I'll probably end up vectoring something with your permission. Take care. :)

    I'm sure he'll really like this evan, you did a fantastic job on it. I love all the details you put on the headdress, it looks so good. And the outfit itself is...*_* Really great job overall.
    /me "borrows" some of your drawing skills and runs off >)
    see you on irc! XD

    Hmm~ Egyptian style is always so elegant, so that's the perfect choice. I especially love the headdress. That's some details. Nice composure even though she's sitting down. That braid around her neck looks like it took a while since you did each detail nicely. Shadings soft and used in all in the right places. Beautiful work as always~

    Oh finally~! A new submission from you :) I love the details you put into this drawing, and the shadowing. Yes, I'm obsessed with people who can shade their drawings.

    Oh only if I can draw.

    a nice drawing.
    A the lines quality is alright, although some part are a bit stiff.
    Maybe smoothin things up will make your drawings better.
    It's nice to see improvement from u everytime u submit.
    In here i feel that the details are really nice.
    The expression is pretty good but can be more.
    Pose is a hard one, but i think u mangaed to do well enough in this one.
    Overall nice effort keep it up

  18. Frosty May 25, 2005

    lol.. okie eva-chan I'll give you a nice little critique this time since you said I been cutting short on ya. ;)

    hmm... well this look pretty nice.
    I like her outfit, it looks really boss and I can't say anything wrong in that other then I think it will look even better if you use a black pen to highlight of the sketch to bring out the details even better if you have the time. :D
    its got some nice details to it, but I think you ae gonna hate me for saying it *don't hurt me* lol.. XD
    but the eyes and the nose you drew for this character well drawing the faceual structure in general isn't exectly your strong point. XP
    *the eye is a little off matching up with the other eye and the nose I think is a little big for her face.*
    still this is one of your better works for sure. so I gotta give it up for that. ;)
    very nice job on it and I'm not just saying it for being nice. ^^;
    *9.7 and Grade AA* +fav for a good looking sketch.

    nice work.. I like to draw the characters of last exile to... I also used the sketshes from last exile.. I found them on a site cald : www.Lastexileworld.com You can find all the drawings there from the sketch book.

  24. LucyXlostangelwings Sep 30, 2005

    It's a good drawing. The character has a nice form. I'm really amazed at how detailed this is! The costume she's wearing seems complicated...and to draw that must require great skill and patience. This is a great piece you've accomplished! ^_^
