Magick Is Not Dead, Darling. by ShePaintsWithBlood Magick Is Not Dead, Darling. by ShePaintsWithBlood
I made this boy up a couple of years ago in just a head sketch and though I fully intended to, I never redrew him until one night by accident. I was amused as I went through it to see how close I had gotten to the old sketch of him. Sorry the colours are so similar to those in my featured deviation, they must be from the same world. I forgot this boy's name so if I do not remember I am going to rename him. And his anatomy is really funny, I kind of did that on purpose especially in the facial area, I was simply having fun.
He is a magician and extremely excellent chemist. He is easily living on a steampunk world and probably a punk himself. I am still getting to know him so..forgive me for being vague.

But oh dear does he know a lot about me....

Time: The sketch took about an hour or so and painting maybe six hours or more?
Tools: 0.5 mm mechanical pencil, watercolours, white mixing acrylic, metallic cakes (never get those on your watercolour cakes or they seem to stop working...)
Reference: I think maybe I looked at black horse fur once during the beginning of the painting?

This drawing and the blood are copyright© ShePaintsWithBlood, Aria (me) Thank you so much for looking.:blackrose:

P.S. Jerome, even though this is random you better realize what you mean to me and...all that.

Yet another piece I love. I especially adore the title. I would have more compliments if I wasn't so distracted by how much I want to meet this boy.

Thank you very much. I liked his face before I painted it because after I did, I destroyed some lines and made his nose look...strange.
I want to learn from him too ^n.n^

He is amazing. This character creation is just wonderful. The atmosphere feels a little near toxic, almost. Unsure how to describe it. It really is a wonderful piece.

I am glad it feels toxic, it is supposed to. If you look you can see that he has little test tube viles stuck in his back with magical smoke coming out (ooh) so it probably is a chokingly toxic environment from his rabid spell mixing.:blackrose:

Wow, I cannot believe how long it took me to get to this. I've been neglecting my message center as of late.

I understand about how you feel about this creation, I've had some dwelling in my mind for a few years now but have yet to actually make an appearance on paper. A few of them don't really have a physical body yet, just a soul that I can almost feel, so I keep trying to coax them out of my mind and onto my paper. Its difficult work because its like they have a mind of their own.

Seriously gorgeous painting, the metallic effect still comes through even though this isn't in real life. Its especially noticable on his hair, making it look all shiny and pretty.
I'm enjoying taking a good long look at his anatomy, I'm a big fan of the steampunk and punk appearances. Those holes on his side make for a pretty cool concept.
I really look forward to seeing more of him, and wish you luck in rediscovering his name!

Oh that is alright. I have begun to neglect mine again too so I am desperate to catch up tonight.

Oh yes...I have a lot, very dear, stuffed inside from years ago too. I think they do have minds of their own actually.

Thank you so very much. I was glad my camera captured the metallics on this one fairly decently. His anatomy is very funny but I kind of am keeping the weird stylized look for him. And yes, Steampunk is delicious. I have loved it for years but only found out it had a name less than a year ago. I always love your blue gear avatar. Thank you again.:blackrose:

This is really quite pretty, the environment has such a lovely ethereal effect which I am quite fond of. I think you did a really neat job with his body structure and his body in general like those interesting holes.
I like the coloring you did here, it's just one of your works that has a lot of appeal to me.

This is gorgeous! I really admire your unique style; your artwork fits together in a masterful way and always seems to have a calm glow to it. I really love his facial features and how his hair is being held back by a blackbird. Very neat! ^.^

Thank you so much for the in depth comment. Wow, a blackbird is a neat idea. Actually those wings grow right out of his neck but now that you mention it, it does look as though a blackbird is holding his hair back.:blackrose:

I started watching Trinity Blood, I like it a lot except when Abel's hair sticks straight up from some kind of magic wind as he is revealing what he is. But it is very good otherwise.:blackrose:

Joiijo Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2008  Student Traditional Artist
Your welcome ^^

XD Abel's hair sticks up like that because of the electric charges in his body he gets in that form, though they aren't visible until he's 80% transformed...
He's much prettier in the manga.. Much, much Prettier while he's crusink, and human form( his hair isn't as stiff looking...and Thores's art is plain love, so detailed.)
...¬.¬ I better keep myself from going into my fangirl trans again.

Ooh, okay, so there is a point to it (I have been watching it in Japanese which I know little of and while I watch it I am usually drawing so I thought his hair was just...random at first) I definitely want to look into the Manga though. I agree, either way he is extremely handsome, especially the red eyes.:blackrose:

^^; I have a link to scanlations for the manga, but I've still have yet to find the official licensed versions. [link]

I've also been looking for the novels (in English), which I'll probably find next time I go to a major-named bookstore...

Cool, I may go out and get a real one now. The art is really well done and pretty and his hair looks so much better in the Manga, it looks...breezy, not like a troll.

Try looking them up on Abebooks.com that site is my heaven, I found my favourite Manga on there for a dollar so if you have other books you want, look around.:blackrose:
