Hi dears! Just look at this wonderful piece of art, done by RaSen on deviantART.


If you want the full version (it's so big, one can have it printed as a Poster, that's how big it is), she sells it, too. I recommend browsing her gallery. She's very talented and sometimes takes commissions too just like her friend, ohlemoned aka zibaamen . I just have to pimp them out a bit 'cause in my eyes, those girls are incredibly talented and seem to get better and better with everything they do.

Gosh, Kasumi-jacket is pure love XD And I still am grateful that she doesn't paint Die as skinny as he really is. Damn, why can't I draw?

She can draw really good. But I'd prefer she'd draw them how they really look like. Die looks like sticked together.

Well, I have to say I'm grateful she doesn't draw him so skinny and all. They look for references for position etc. everywhere and to me, it's always a miracle how she manages to draw a real person in a position or so you've never seen before.
I really like the job she did on his face there, with 5°clock stubbles and all.

His head looks like she took it from somewhere and put it on his body.
She took his cheek bones from the filth time when he was skinny. And using this on that body... doesn't look good to me at all. Apparently she can draw pretty well but she should spend more time on details. He never has like those cheek bones when he has a body like this.
(Also I wonder bout the necklace. Why the hell does he wear Shinya's?)

I honestly don't think one needs to go that much into details when it comes to fanart, because most people just do what looks good to them and what they can achieve with their skills. I do think the body fits the face even if you might be right with the cheekbones, but I personally just don't bother that much. I see other flaws that disturb me more but I rather not pick on them and instead enjoy looking at something and marvelling how somebody can create something that I can't XD

Haha, I knew you'd notice. She is a DiexShin fan, that's why. When I asked her for the bigger version, I had it removed though. Even though I wouldn't even have noticed it's Shin's necklace without being told. I just don't look at Shin that closely, apparently *laughs*

I'm for more details. Especially if someone is talented. If I'd be that good in drawing... god... xD
Of corse there are some pictures which are even worse. But that doesn't make this picture looking better to me. Not at all. Honestly... I prefer pictures not drawn as "good" as this. Just because there's more heart. Even if it would just be called "ugly" by other persons.

Of course I notice stuff like that. I wouldn't have known it's Shinya if I didn't have a friend that's Shinya fan and bought a replica of this necklace.

I think there is a lot of detail in the picture and she took many things into account. And Die never had a body like that to begin with, so I rather take it as artistic freedom. I'm sure the Mona Lisa wasn't this gorgeous in reality too as Leondardo drew her XD And well, it depends, but I think her art usually has a lot of heart. I like to look at the eyes 'cause there's really something going on there. And sometimes just having 'heart' isn't enough.

Sadly, I'm totally not talented but I tried to draw a couple of times and man, I sucked balls XD If I could paint like that, ho-shit, I would paint all the Dirus as _I_ would like to see them x) I guess that's what she does and in my opinion, she does it well. There will always be people not liking what you do, but that comes with putting yourself out there for everybody to see.

Haha, I always think it's so stupid to wear replicas of their stuff x)

He had a while ago. And that's why I know how his face looks like when his weight is alright.
Heart ist the most important... but sometimes just being talented in drawing isn't enough.

Can't you ever say anything nice about anything Die related? For crying out loud, it's a drawing! And a damn good one at that, just cos it doesn't look exactly like a photo...
nymphalidae: Die Brückenymphali_dae on July 10th, 2011 10:07 am (UTC)
I can. If there's something nice about it to say, hon.
I never said it was 'bad'. She has(!) talent!
koumoribatkoumoribat on July 10th, 2011 11:23 am (UTC)
It's always something negative with you, hon. I've kept quiet for a long time but it's just....I dunno, do you have something against anyone who posts anything about him? It's always "He looks depressed/he looks tired/that photo is terrible/that drawing isn't right at all etc"
nymphalidae: Die Windhauchnymphali_dae on July 10th, 2011 12:25 pm (UTC)
It's not about the people who post it. I don't even know them, do I?
It's just about him, you know. I'm just kinda really serious when it's about him. I can't just laugh and be happy when he looks obviously sad, unhealthy, etc.

Holy cow. This is really good
koumoribatkoumoribat on July 10th, 2011 03:24 am (UTC)
Wow, that's actually really good! Wish I could draw so well
