Hello! by dragonaur Hello! by dragonaur
I've been told I like to draw happy characters. I think it's because drawing is one of those buffers that generally helps lift my spirits when life get's tough! >_< So while I think this year I've been generally disappointed with my art progress, you know, I still like to draw! So that's a plus. Frankly, I don't know how I'll become a better artist and writer when I'm rather happy with how things have ended up. Drawing is not one of my native talents!

Anyway, here's Xara being generally beautiful and happy. When I first started drawing Xara she was supposed to be pretty bad and unpleasant. She is, after all, a dragoness with a poor upbringing. I never quite stuck with that and she mellowed out very quickly. It was fun when she learned to say "thank you." She didn't like doing it!

She's way on the opposite end of that now. Very sensitive, though, punctuated with dragon fury from time to time. I consider it a factor of the elven side of her parentage. She is maturing and all her features are coming into play.

She's been going through some hardships of late and so outside of her main acting career I thought I'd let her play some more comedic and fun roles! ^_^ Plus, I've been trying to draw her in new things. Here and in that last sketch you can see I've been experimenting with her "battle bikini". She's covering up a bit more as she gets older. I'm not sure what Ryuichi is thinking about this. He's still trying to cement the relationship!

I'll have to draw more of her wings and ink this up. This is one of those sketches where I should have drawn her much lower on the page. I might shorten up that left arm a bit. It looks too long to me in retrospect. Why is it I never see those things when laying out the character?

As we saw in the previous couple of pages, it probably won't stay that way anymore. :(
