Artist Comment

After SNK I made some symbolic art for Ao no Exorcist. It used to be my favorite anime a few years ago and I still like it so why not.

The image portrays Rin's sword, Yukio's gun and Shirou's exorcist... um, pin? brooch? Whatever it is. Here's the reference photo that I used for the sword. I also added Kuro and the coal tar demons floating around because it looked too empty without them. I'm not very satisfied with my lighting here. I think it could have turned out better but don't know how exactly I'd redo it so it's prolly gonna stay like this. I'm quite proud of the fire, though. I love that blue fire! :3

And I'm not even going to try come up with a cool title because I can rarely think of anything creative aaaahahaha. *sigh*

Favs and comments appreciated! :)

Reblog here on tumblr. Thank you!

    Right off the bat I gotta say for whatever reason the coal tar's seem really cute here xD Dunno why though, might be cuz they're just floatin' around ^^ Kuro looks pretty good here as well. The only thing I think could be improved is the flames on Rin's sword; it looks a bit flat. I think playing around with the lighting and adding detail would help improve that. If you need a reference just have a look at Rin's gallery here with scans that have the sword & flames to help give you an idea for how they look.

    Other than that though, cute job elisa :)

    Really wonderful!
    I like your this character symbols a lot!
    And I like those small heads floating here and there. :D
    I really like the way you draw flames, but here the flames are looking like Fairy dust (emitting an magical Aura), the flames don't have that wildness, that flames usually have, and ummm.... I think if you have made the background as a Brick or stone floor, it would have make the objects more appealing here, I mean that I can imagine how catching they will look if in a night scene, these objects are placed on a floor of stones or brick or that old castle like flooring.

    But even so I like your this concept of making objects symbolizing characters! :D
    I hope someday you'll make CCS art like that. :3

    Nice baloon cats XDD

    Sorry for critisyzing. To my mind you should add more blue highlights especially on Kuro. Since the sword is the only origin of lights. Also because of that reason it'd be better to change Kuro's eyes highlighs nearer to the bottom and make them (or add more) blue. Hope you won't kill me T-T

    I know why I'm always looking forward to your new arts.
    I really like your drawing / coloring style.

    Kuro is so cute. I like her face (or is it a boy dunno). Also like the small 'demons' but you could have used a darker blue on the flames by the sword it looks to light for my liking.
