Kodiona Kolioni Chast by lynseylew Kodiona Kolioni Chast by lynseylew
Ballpoint pen & Photoshop CS2

---

I know this picture was popular, so I'm resubmitting it from my old account.
Drawn in 2005, this started as a doodle I worked on every night, and eventually turned into a design for ceremonial wear. This particular race I've called Ovisians, and this character is a very old one of mine. He is called Tao (yes, I said he!!), and he's the son of a very powerful province lord.
The 'Arjuna: Into the Another World' soundtrack was a massive influence on this picture, in particular the songs 'Diving', 'Time to Die' and 'The Clone'.

Simply gorgeous. I'm inspired once again. T-T

I heard about Arjuna years ago and I thought it was awesome, yet I never got the chance to watch it. Now that you reminded me I can go see it.^^

I had a regular "THIS IS AMAZING" comment for you, then got distracted by the Arjuna namedrop :la:

(Most people don't even know that the anime exists, let alone that it has an awesome soundtrack)

This deviation is just so breathtaking. And I still can't believe you did this in pen X_x I'd go insane lol. Always have to do it in pencil first.
Lovely work as always =)

Wow I really love ths picture... It really has the certain kind of feeling I always try to draw... But I need so much more practice...
It's funny you used all kinds of details I used on a drawing I ones made a while ago... But it is seriously nothing compared tot his... xD It was a fairy but it also had the peacock feathers and the beads and that kind of shoulder piece... Whaha very funny coincidence xD
