Blade Under Mask: Whispering Forest by White-Mantis Blade Under Mask: Whispering Forest by White-Mantis
"The leaves. Each one of them have a life, each one of them have a story and each one of them bring me words. Words of you."


Speedpaint thing to test the Marker tool in SAI. I gotta say I love how that brush blends everything without making it perfect, as I love rough brushstrokes.

It's Eien, my Toxodera beieri mantis, that I got from *fydbac <3 ghmmm I love him so much, he's so awesome to draw! :D

That one creates quite a comfortable atmosphere for me, when looking at it. The character looks calm and through the eyes very strong-willed. I hope I don't interprete it wrong :S The light with the warm colors and these leaves there have something very comforting, too! Wonderful work! :)

Woah, yeah, this character has a cool feeling to him.. Sth strong, sth.. powerful.. But also hard as steel. I wonder how close I am to that but certainly interesting at first sight. =)

Thank you! He definitely is strong and hard, but he's a good MANtis, with a good heart. He is just too serious! XD

I like it a lot when people identify themselves with some aspects of my art and characters. ^^

I see. =)
I could see him both ways: as a strong, hard but man-tis of good will still, or just going overbroad to get what he wants. But in fact I'm glad you say he is a good guy, I defenitely like him already. And the painting is really good, like a lot how you did the lighting here.

Ah ok... ^^
