Blood:..:Lines by Sayda Blood:..:Lines by Sayda

For a larger detailed image, click here.

*cradles her crippled right hand* ;__; I think I nearly died working on this picture today. Why? Because I'M FREAKING INSANE @_______@;;;;;;; This image was due on October 15th, this friday, for the Private Exchange: Diety Exchange. Needless to say, I got behind REAL fast ;__; I couldn't think of anything to draw...and I finally busted out a sketch last week. But with school, I found no time to color...and then it was October 13th and I R panicked X___X;;;; Especially since my ENTIRE Thursday *the 14th* would be spent working on my 3D that left me with...

ONE DAY TO FINISH THIS THING!!!!!!!!!! O___________O

And...I did it o___o;;; I R INSANE!!!!!!! This was ALL done in ONE FREAKING SITTING ;___; And now my hand hurts to noooo end...that'll teach me to procrastinate ;_; NOT to mention that I am also REALLY sick ;___; So I got to sit in front of my comp widdling away at this image from 1pm till 3am off and on while feeling woozy all the way ;___; It was a challenge...BUT I MADE IT!!! GO ME AND MY CRAZY INSANE SELF!!! *dies* x__x

I'm just glad it's done, though x___x now I can worry about other my 3D homework... *sigh*

As for the much to say. I think it came out really tight :3 Much better then what I thought I would do, especially doing a rush job in one day o__o;;;'s good. The character , Alucin, belongs to ~aelice He's a blood demon prince...guy ^.^;;; So I had to come up with a way to portray him as a "GOD' like figure c__c So...I made Alucin the God of Blood Lines/Lineage...stuff c___c
The huge red circle thing at his feet is supposed to represent something like a family tree of sorts. The blood flows and conects all the blood ties in a family's lineage...hence Alucin standing over it with blood flowing from him into the great circle.
I know I'm a total dork >_> so sue me.

But well, hope you like it ~aelice!!!! ^______^

Drawing - .5 lead mechanical pencil

wow very nice!
Dragizar Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2004
Okay, normally I'm not inclined to comment on things unless I feel the need to say something, and that would be the case here. And I usually only say something if I can offer constructive criticism or REALLY like it. In this case, it's a little of both.

Firstly: OMFG. You did this in ONE SITTING?????!!!!! And you're still SANE ???!!! :faint:

But aside from that...This is AMAZING. The way you combined the two "sides" of this (good and evil) is seamless!! I didn't even notice the change the first time I looked at it! And the BLOOD!! Oh my GOD, it's FANTASTIC!!! Both the stuff on his hands and at his feet look perfect!! It looks like animated realism...or something. Not to mention the shading, light effects, detail, coloring in general...GAH, it's just dripping with wonderful goodness!! :worship:

The only two things I have to critique otherwise are his hips and the gold-halo-thing-with-the-blue-lanterns-h anging-off-it. His hips look a little...wide. At first glance, he looked a bit preganant...^^; And about the halo-thing, the light from the lanterns looks wierd on the feathers. Then again, it's feathers so I should cut you some slack, right? :) But the feathers still look good, nonetheless. :D

And to think I just discovered your work today...Shame on me! *slaps wrist* You're SO getting a :+devwatch: from me, and a :+fav: on the awesomeness here. *beams* (Speaking of favorites; Only 74?!! What's this website coming to??!! :lol: )
Zrett Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004
There's not much to comment left. x.x I'll just say it's wicked awesome, and for a one sitting, last minute piece of art it's great!
DeerDance0084 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2004
oooo blood prreeetyy...
i love how the blood seal gives off a red luminescence and there is the slightest bit of light coming from the crevices of the clouds. kind of draws two pictures. oooooo whats hiding under the darkness of the wings, looks eeire. and the wings are awesome, well... the whole thing is awesome especially the character, and did i mention the blood...

H...O...L...Y... CRAP!!! O.o That is amazing! :+fav: for you!!! And in one day? Wow... unreal.
skippythekid Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist

this is absolutely amazing!!!

TwistedPixiSister Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2004
This is absolutely amazing! You have the same amount of insane patience as I do, I think, when it comes right down to finishing a picture- however, I'm never so pressed to finish by a deadline.

Anyhow- It's beautiful- his wings are *so* well done that I'm jealous, and the blood is realistic enough. I actually dig the way it's dripping down to fill the crevices of the circle below (is that morbid..? lol). The costume is wonderful- It has a very English feel to them, for some reason- dark colors..augh, I just love it!

:heart: Glad I stumbled across you at Reactor!! ^_^

lainiechan Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2004
XD I have to say, being apart of the project Alucin is from and being his #1 fangirl, this made me squeal. Totally made my day. For that I :+fav: this. :D
aelice Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
Holy craaap. ;_; He looks so amazing. I'm just like.. gaping at the contrast between your Deity render, and the pauper that Alucin currently is. ^_^ I am just so amazingly happy right now. He's so sexy.. gorgeous.. ;_; And I can't sing enough praise for it right now. OMG. I especially -adore- the blood seal of the family tree below him, VERY unique and a fantastic idea. The shading.. the blood.. :heart: Really fits his Inquisitor nature. ^^ Thank you SO much.
Sayda Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2004
^_^ well, I'm just glad you like it so :3 It was a lot of work, but it was fun ^_^d I was worried at first that I wasn't going to beable to really represent your character as a Deity very well c__c; So I'm glad to hear that this fits him well ^.^d You are very welcomed!!! :3 :hug:

Oh wow. Beautiful, simply beautiful. I love the coat design, I would kill to have a coat like that. :O
The halo-type-thing is very elegant, I love the little laterns hanging from it.
The wings, the pattern at the bottom and the blood streaming off him are all excellent.

This is a GREAT piece.
