The eyes close is more like "That was easy."  Mainly because there is a sense of serenity in the picture.
I disagree. I think the eyes closed reflects an internal battle–that she knows violence is necessary, but she is not content with it. And in her face/arms, I find almost the opposite of serenity. (I see what you mean from the colors, ash, glows, and slow-motion-type depiction, though.) Once again, the internal struggle and bloody/scarred arms/face displays (to me) the opposite of serenity.

I just had a though.  It would be awesome to have the BW picture and the wind blowing and the ash falling, then suddenly, BAM, she opens her eyes and there are it shifts to color. ha ha.

Animations are a pain though, especially with an image this complex.

That would be a TON of work, miyabi. Really.

I like her eyes closed. It makes such a sharp contrast to all the killing that you know just happened
Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant and vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified!

I know it would.  I just suddenly had the thought in my mind and thought it would be awesome.

You're right; it probably would.  :-\

Me, too. It's like she's found this little bubble of time where all the violence has paused.…(That's where I got the serene vibe I think Rrikor was talking about before.)

I love the way the red light is reflected on the sword. Awesome. I personally thing that's your best piece yet.

Meh. Rough sketch, dunno if it's going somewhere.

How would you visually represent a flare? I'm thinking graphic metaphors based around the allomantic symbols.

Like you said its pretty rough and hard to tell what is going on. However I really like the idea you have for flaring! I think that for it to work the entire piece will have to be very exaggerated and and messy, almost like a comic book. For example it would be out of place in the piece you showed us before with Vin. But from the style above, it looks like you already knew that. Nice work!

I like it.
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

It looks intense.  I'm looking forward to seeing it added to.

Inkthinker's Vin drawing rocks. (I like the eyes open.) The flaring sketch is very cool too.

Seeing his new artwork got me itching to do another Vin painting. Here's what I ended up with:


The flare sketch made we want to add a big glowy allomatic symbol to my latest Vin, but I restrained myself. I was also inspired to experiment with my color choices after seeing work by another artist on deviantArt. But then I chickened out and brought the colors back into my usual more restrained palette. If you look too closely, you might glimpse some of the more vibrant survivors. Maybe next time I'll feel more comfortable with the bolder colors.

Inkthinker, i really love the way you portray the flare in it! MKing, I think you should have added that allomantic symbol you were talking about. I've just seen way to many vins just leaping or "flying" I want to see some of them flaring pewter and about to kill something.

MKing, I really like it.  Most of what we've seen so far is intense stuff.

Yours is just like she's out jumping through the city and lost in thought.
