Path of Destruction by djwagLmuffin Path of Destruction by djwagLmuffin
Well here she is.

I don't draw Lina often enough, I really should.

Anyway, I wanted to do a serious piece focusing on subject and sky. The next step is the ground and objects like rocks...like the ones in front here. I'm happy with this despite its simplicity. I'm going to practice more of this.

Yjis is the wallpaper size and I'll be putting this in my artbook (yes, I've decided to make one!) and print at cons so enjoy!

---Edit

Took out the text. It was bothering me and especially after I worked hard on that sky.

Gorgeous, I love how effectively powerful this image is, from her stoic pose to the turbulent sky.

Thank you; I'm surprised it's as popular as it is. I think it's lacking detail but people seem to like it so thank you. ^^

I THINK I may redo this one. Some more details because it feels a little stiff to me but that may be in the future. But thanks for liking it anyway. ^^

I like this picture. That side of Slayers, full of brutality and destruction, is too rarely shown in fanart. And I like that Lina is standing here alone. When she comes to a hard decision she does it on her own, that is the part of her character.

Awesome work :heart:

that's pretty cool man, you might work in a little atmosphere around her but it's pretty good.

What do you mean by atmosphere? I'm still trying to understand this whole coloring process so I'm..you know, learning. I do still feel like there's still a lot of empty space around where she is standing but I wasn't sure what to do about it.

Just some smoke and dirt swirling around her, it would help tie everything together.

Why didn't the author have L-sama be Lina's god mode side or something like that. The gold always paints such a stark contrast to her regular form...i've seen it so much its almost synonymous to Lina herself IMO

:icondjwaglmuffin:
djwagLmuffin Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
well I don;t think it became apart of Lina's MO until the end of the story and it's just been worked over by fans. I always wanted to try the sort of dual colored effect like this so I ran with it.

actually it's supposed to be the Giga Slave. I wanted the L-sama turning-to-gold thing. I'll have to work on it.

Absolutely gorgeous! I've always loved the way you balance your work, and the flow between the rocks and the sky and how the clouds loo like they're being swept into the spell...Definately one of my favorite pieces in your gallery. ^_^

W-wow, this is... just... wow!
Oh gosh, I can hardly even describe it! The scenery- especially the sky- is so beautiful, with so many colors... (I love seeing these sort of colors in the sky... for some reason, it makes me think about once when I was younger and I watched storm clouds overtake a clear blue sky in a matter of a few minutes, as if it were from some sort of movie. This is just amazing...)
And, of course, I also love the way Lina is posed, and where she's posed- it makes me wonder what's just over the top of the hill she's standing on, below her gaze, where she's aiming that Dragon Slave... perhaps they deserve it, and perhaps not, I suppose...

But, anyway, this is really gorgeous, and you've done a fabulous job on it! Please~ let me know when and where those artbooks are being sold, okay?!
