I'd just like to thank everyone for their incredible support over the past year and a half that I've been "resurrected" to DA on this new account
. Yeah that's why I chose my username. Truthfully, coming back to DA for me after so long, and with this new manga style, was like a resurrection for me, a resurrection as the demon I am. I'm not a demon because I'm evil or malicious, but because I've had my battles with the darkness, and I've overcome them for the most part. Of course this battle won't be finished until death, but for the most part I've emerged from rock bottom a "demon resurrected."
Your support over this time has been incredible. I never expected to be where I am now, especially when I had just started with manga style coming in. Honestly, I think my art has come a long way since then. Now I might not have regained as many watchers as I once had (400) when I was a Sonic-style spriter, but to have almost 100 now is still incredible to me. And to think my pageviews actually surpassed my comments blows my mind! I actually have a screenshot of the moment the two equaled one another some point *cough* over 9,000... //shot for overused meme.
So yeah, thanks so much again, and now that all the sappy, feely stuff is said, I can move on to the fan-art exhibition!
So I'm gonna be showing you all my favorite fan-art pieces for each of my OCs. Now this is of course a fan-art list, so commissions and requests don't count. Also, for each I'm gonna give a lil schpele (//shot for misspelling). Please don't feel bad if I don't put your fan-art up because I love them all, and I'll list every other piece in the honorable mentions
section at the end.
Without further ado, here they are! My favorite fan-art pieces!Xander MalisXenozoa
While this was technically based off of a commission I had paid him for of Xander fighting Wild, I did not pay for this extra concept design. What I'm most impressed with on this piece is how xenozoa was able to alter Xander's look just enough to fit his art style, something not easily accomplished with the pure manifestation of sin and his crazy design.Jillian Maliszaameen (silver-lover24)
I'm aware I'm bending the rules a bit again, but even though this is a commission technically, it wasn't commissioned by me
, rather by my adorable lil sis, soooo fan-art. While this may not be the most accurate representation of her design, it's still the most elegant and possibly beautiful depiction of the cute succubus. A lot of work evidently went into drawing this, something I can certainly appreciate, and I love that my sis would buy this wonderful piece for me.Jayden Rocquejayjaydavenport
For those of you who have been watching me for some time now, you'll know this drawing has actually been my DA ID for more than half of my time here on this account. While the design and art style are outstanding, the real significance of this piece is the expression of Jayden's rockstar personality, something I had for the most part failed to show in the one pic I'd drawn of him before (and often in rps involving him).Tsukeiyou KiyoruLittleFreak56
Nothing like two roomies chillin' and rockin those blazers! So Kiyoru (left) and Kai (right) are roommates in an rp group I belong to Natsugaoka-High, and while they often disagree (not so much argue, though), they still manage to rock it like bros. What I enjoy most about this picture is the total, radiant bromance going on, something I can relate to with the good friend who made this.WildxXMr-BrightsideXx
I have known Jodie almost longer than anyone else here, even back from my old account, and I'll admit we've had our ups and downs, but we always come out stronger friends in the end. So about this fan-art, Jodie actually owns Wild's girlfriend, a girl who can see past his mutant side to the sweet, innocent, protective guy he is. That's actually exactly what I like about this pic: the expression of his innocent, sort of goofy nature despite having claws, fangs, slit eyes, a fork tongue, etc.SixCaseySaiyan
Honestly, out of all the reiterations of the single picture I posted of this Sixth Reaper, this one has to be my favorite both in style and purpose. See, Casey drew me this as a "thank you" gift for giving her the remainder points needed for premium membership. I know she mostly does DBZ-style art, but I have to say he art style worked perfectly to express the deep-seeded insanity of this immortal tortured soul. I know you made this to tell me "thank you," but I'm gonna go ahead and thank you for it, anyways.Sakurablodly
I was actually surprised to receive fan-art of a second generation OC immediately after posting the first picture of gen2 OCs (Dante and Sakura). That's what I sentimentally love about this work, and as for the art itself, what I love most would be the match between the title and the art itself. "Sakura of the Night" is a perfect way not only to introduce this piece, but also the character herself as a skilled, focused, stealthy kunoichi.MyselfMysticAzelf
Just a small taste of all my sweet Usa-chan has done for me over these past few months we've been a couple. From that first Valentine's Day gift to cheering me on for the ACTs and AP Exams to even more art (and words), Erin has given me far more than I could ever ask for, I could ever imagine. And now that I look at all these pieces lined up, I realize she has perfectly marked each milestone in our relationship. Our Valentine's Day as friends, emotions growing, the first move, a happy couple deep in love. I have no doubt she will continue to catalogue our adventures together, though I don't expect it of her. She's already done far more than enough for me, for us, and I love her for it.
Thank you to everyone who has shown your support for me over the year(s), and I apologize if I didn't choose your art for a special feature. Two peoples I would especially like to apologize to are silver-lover24
Bee has been my lil sis for as long as I've known her dating back to my old account and my spriting days, and she's done much more for me than just commission works. She's drawn our couple of Jill and Kin countless times, so I regret not selecting one of those as my favorite.
Winter has been my longest-lasting friend on DA PERIOD. She's been with me through everything dating back to my first few months here back in the 8th grade. I'll always appreciate her input, her support, her art, everything she has done and will do for me.Honorable Mentions
Once again, thank you all. I love you guys
