Dying to be Alive by kitten-chan Dying to be Alive by kitten-chan
Two of my original charcters. I have to laugh at how Cale looks similar to Kanda form DGM if he were to grow his bangs out.
Wierd thing is, I arrived at his character design a good 2 years before i ever heard of DGM...there's no such thing as original charcter designs anymore XDDD You just have to try to be original with their personalities.

So yes, a different manga yet again. Cale is the purple haired chap and James(one of my absolute fave names) is the sad little blondie.

Felt like doing some original stuff...I'm at a TOTAL block with the comic...i'll get back in the flow soon i'm sure but atm i just tend to let my pencil go where it wants because ive so little time.

There's going to be a matching pic of the two other main characters from this.

Would you like to see the sketches I've been doodling? I do loads of sketches but very few finished these days.

I'll be here for the next hour or so =D

Cale also look like Kamui Gakupo, the Vocaloid.

James also looks like Kagamine Len, another Vocaloid.

Good job with this. Brilliantly colored :)

This drawing is 2 and a half yrs old, the chars are much older so...the vocaloids look like my boys? lol

And.. and.. and.. the coloring is sooo pretty. Your skins always look so smooth and shiny, but not in a plastic-way (if that made sense...)

oh, and the blue shiny. it's lovely.

youre right there is no such thing as original character design anymore. That happens to me alot but in names :) every single time I supposedly come up with my own names and then later on I find out that that name already exists. I like how your original characters look they do look alike in a way there so cool. :D how are they in personalities? :?

So flipping true. I made Haru my OC.. and Eve from Black Cat is pretty much like my 2 OCs put together. >> <<; WUHEVER.

I like the purple hair one though. : D So cute~

also, about the comic, take your time, as I know what art block feels like. many people are waiting for it, but they will just have to learn patience, eh?

Top: Cool hair. And those ears rock so hard. He looks mean, but in a good way... if you catch my meaning.

Bottom: She's cute. And I'm overwhelmingly amused by the SHINY thing in her hand.

All over: Fantasmacalriffic! I love the name and the background.

Well, I can definitely see the similarity between Cale and Kanda. But when I saw Cale in the preview, I first thought, "Oooh, sullen elven guy with purple hair! 8D" and I instantly knew he was one of your OCs. xD I always like seeing your character designs.

The textures you applied really add to the picture, and I love the coloring, especially in the hair! The strands look smooth and realistic. :) Lovely job!
