I hate when I am controlled by Damaged927 I hate when I am controlled by Damaged927
"You know that, don't you?"

This first bit has little to do with the art. It is more of a sob, whiny, griping, Boo-Hoo sad tale about the creation of this piece. Feel free to skip ahead to my fan-boying write up below :XD:

So, there is a bit of an unhappy saga that happened with this piece. I dunno about you, but when I am working on a drawing I have one file that I am working on and I save all the time! Like, after every few brush strokes I instinctively hit Control+S. Well, this backfired a bit on me the other day. I was just about done coloring Sonar Clione (I was putting her dress pattern in place) when I did my instinctive Control+S. Well, wouldn't you know it, we lost power in the middle of saving. No worries right? Wrong. I lost all of it. The file became corrupt and all I had left was the sketch of Sonar. No Hercules, no background. All gone.

So, I tried a variety of things (PSD recovery tools, adobe fireworks, other boxes that have photoshop, x86 photoshop etc). Nothing work. I was going to have to redrawn, re-ink, re-everything this picture. That said, I decided to try One. More. Thing.

:love: Paint Tool Sai :worship:

I don't really use Sai (doesn't suit me) but lemme tell you, it saved my bacon this time. On a hail Mary I tried it in Sai and it opened! :faint: Everything I did on Sonar was gone (lines, colors, etc) but the BG and Hercules remained (:phew:). So, I had to re-ink and color everything but it saved me a ton of time. Sai recovered about 80% of my work.

The moral? If you ever get a corrupt PSD, try opening it with Sai (or sending it to someone who has Sai), it might just save you a ton of work :heart:

Onward! :iconknightplz:


OMG Yumekui Merry! <3 I love love love this manga. The anime completely devours the story and ruins it but I don't care. It is such a good action and comedy manga. There is a twang of romance but almost every story has it's level of romance now-a-days. The characters are all so lovely. I jokingly say, "Disgaea called, it wants it's character designs back." :XD: I definitely based my tumblr theme on Yumekui Merry ;)

This picture is sort of a spoiler so, if you don't wanna know what I was going for her, don't read the next paragraph.

This is Sonar Clione and Pharos Hercules. I was trying to depict his control over her but making him a symbolic puppeteer for her. She helps him find the dream demons because he forces her to using a certain scientific type of black mailing. Due to this, she isn't really free to do what she wants. Though she does try. The scene is suppose to be on her stage and the "You know that, don't you" is kind of her catch phrase. I like how I can use media in a comment but not my deviation description :XD:

I got really long winded there :phew: Anyways, I hope you like this :D

Yup, that's the one :D  The anime was a good and enjoyable anime so long as you didn't read the manga :)  However, if you read the manga, it did many things different (for instance, Clione doesn't even exist).  As for what kind of anime, I'd say action with a bit of humor and perhaps a little ecchi :nod:

There are quite a few characters not in the anime (Clione, the one depicted here, is one of them).  It's a longer manga (76 chapters last time I checked) and the anime is only 12 episodes.  They did what they could :XD:

I like the message of this drawing and how you drew the girls expression. :)

I know you went for anime style in this but I would suggest drawing her arms a bit less thin as they look very fragile right now. :P

Though the face was drawn well, it seems like you cut of the back of her head a bit and the cross design in her eyes is kind of disatracting me from the main focus of the picture. :hmm:

Her design is well done and the colors used suit her well. :aww:

The pose was chosen wisely but I think her body is a bit too straight. :P Remember that she has curves at shoulder-waist-hip.

Keep it up! :D

No, that's her name.  She is from a manga called "Yumekui Merry".   Here she is:
Sonar by Damaged927

As you can see, she has crosses in her eyes and is very frail looking.  Her giant hat is what cuts off her head (as you put it).  So, I was respecting her design when I drew her this way.

No dude... You should have drawn her differently, even though she's a sickly nightmare demon girl :icontrollfaceplz:

I can see her body realy does have most of this weird shape but her arms do look a bit thicker on this picture though. :P

For this artist that is how he does it.  By their art style they make the arms thicker than the neck.  I, on the other hand, do not.  The arms I draw are generally thinner than the characters neck.  Sonar is a sickly demon so I made them a little thinner than usual to show off her frailness.  I actually think I drew her right arm a bit to thick :shrug:

How gorgeous! You've captured a very unique, creepy vibe and still manage to keep it beautiful. The shading is spot-on and makes the colors completely pop, and that melancholy expression... so wonderful. Well done, friend. ^^
