Commissioned a friend of a friend of mine to draw the main character for my story to help her Figma addiction. It turns out quite good.

This is Cornelia Asterium Steelheart

From my story, Wreath of Lilies, Cauldron of Poison.


Those patterns on her hanfu are centipedes. And on her collar is flowers. It's a strange combination, but I think it works.

Now the next one is Illumca Fir Liban, one of the Heroines in my story. A Dark Elf and Connie's first disciple. Her history is one of pain and suffering.
Before she was given a new body and a new purpose by Connie through the art of Soul Reversing Sutra.
She is an icy and aloof person who distrusts everything due to her experiences.

https%3A%2F%2Fimages-wixmp-ed30a86b8c4ca887773...2BrXWUmx8A

She has very...godly proportion due to a mix of her desire to become the ideal body and Connie's natural preference. No one said the MC is perfect.



The Third one, Martell Lobelia, Connie's second disciple and a boy who would do anything to survive. Using his looks to gain what he wants.
He is cunning, evil, and remorseless. He is only loyal to the one who gave him a sense of belonging, Connie.
A true genius in cultivation and a cultured trickster with the desire to learn.
A natural born sociopath.

Smart, cunning, remorseless, and unapologetically beautiful. If this was another kind of novel, he would be the MC.


The Fourth one, Akula Altanghazar,
A Tonsulde of Clan Altankheer. A centaur who strives to protect the weak. An antithesis of Connie. She dreamed of serving a Hero but was disappointed by
the Heroes she saw. Connie convinced her to be a Hero instead. To become the ideal that she dreamed of. She was self-conscious
of her teeth, so she covered them with a veil. Her main weapon is a Sukheri (a Metal Umbrella) and a bow and arrow.
She has the most athletic body Connie had ever seen.
Observe her rock-hard abs.
Observe it.

Her clothing is inspired by Mongolian culture.


Update:
Commissioned a proper full body to another friend. I like this one better. My god she is beautiful

Update 2:
Commissioned another character. a Dark Elf who is Connie's first disciple.

Update 3:
Commissioned another character. Martell Lobelia, a Beastfolk Boy and Connie's second disciple.


Update 3:
Commissioned another character. Akula Altanghazar of Clan Altankheer. A centaur.

What is your thought on non-manga style sketches? I wanted to try sometime drawing old people, so if you give me more details to what you imagine, I migt give it a try when I have time ;). Although I have a simple black and white traditional sketch in mind, you can see my style here, and then decide: https://www.deviantart.com/kitanokata

I'm down if you're offering. It's gonna be like a different world with a different art.

Here you go:

Wang Tian Gu is an old, musclebound old man with majestic white beard reaching to his waist. He had a square jaw, thick neck, and sharp black eyes with thick sloping eyebrows. Like Pai Mei from Kill Bill, or one of those old men in old kung fu movies. His hair was tied in a bun and decorated with a simple hairpin. All his hair was white.

He wore a purple robe with golden centipede embroidering. It was the wedding gift given by Grandmaster Jian Yuxiang upon his marriage to his wife. On his belt was a red pouch with the pattern of spider lilies containing tobacco. Something his wife made for him. She was not great with handicraft, proven by the occasional loose threads.

His fingers were thick and rounded from years of using his hands to maim and rip people's head off.

So yes, very different from his current form.

Man she is so cute and smug.

Also she is an old man inside.

She has very...godly proportion due to a mix of her desire to become the ideal body and Connie's natural preference. No one said the MC is perfect.

Added another character. She is what you might say...THICC.

Connie has a very discerning taste.

Third commissioned art for my novel. A man this time.

In another kind of novel, he would be the MC, or the villain.

The artist did a great job.

Cornelia is indeed also my favorite.

Her clothes are designed to be subdued in its elegance. But the robe was anything but subdued. Those big ass centipedes!
Anyway, the flowers on her rims and edge of the inner clothes are Aconitum.

For Martell, I based him on French, louis the XIV era frocks and frills.

Including those nice socks. Notice that he also wore heels.

And that devilish smile that says, I am interested in knowing you, But only because I want to corrupt you slowly.
