25 Essential Expressions:Raven by Achiru-et-al 25 Essential Expressions:Raven by Achiru-et-al
OKAY THAT'S THE LAST ONE FOR NOW. >>; My hand is dying. And I really need to work on my papers and whatnot. But this has been fun. I love you all.

:icondustbunnythumper: :iconmiru: HERE IS RAVEN.

Original is :iconnapalmnacey:'s and can be found here.

Raven belongs to herself and me. And Zy I guess. Yes, she belongs to Zy too.

Raven appears to be blind... She also appears to be absolutely adorable.

How do you draw blind eyes? I have never been able to do it...

The expressions are all in the eyebrows, actually. Unless you're talking about drawing white irises...

Thanks. So are the eyes mostly closed? If not white or light color?

Well Raven keeps her eyes closed because she doesn't want to wear sunglasses to get the point across, but it comes down to the character.

Are they born with their eyelids sealed? Did they lose their eyesight later in life, or how bad is their vision, exactly? For Raven, everything looks like a blur, but she can tell night from day.

White/light eyes can tell you something about the genetic lack of pigmentation in the iris, but a hazy lens definitely hints that someone cannot see. Basically, don't color in normally black center of the eye. Or if it's a problem in the retina, then the eye should look normal.

Just finished the up to date comics! Sorta confused but happy! Zy has a confusing past! Is there a certain way to be pronouncing the names? Like Xie or Xei.... I am pretty sure I am saying it wrong... :confused:

Xie rhymes with pie, die and lie.

Xei rhymes with hey, they and whey.

Uwah, I love her silly face! Tho her sad face kinda looks like she's in pain... like, upset tummy pain. But that's just me.

:iconachiru-et-al:
Achiru-et-al Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2009
Yeah, sometimes I think my characters like to pick the extreme emotions, whereby sad also covers depressed or sorrowful. I'm still laughing at Zy's disgust/flabbergasted expression. It's hilarious.

*goes to take a second look*

Why yes, yes it is. I attempted one of these challanges once and gave up, but that was before I was working on my comic, which has forced me to learn to draw characters semi-consistantly. So, we're going to try this again xD

:iconachiru-et-al:
Achiru-et-al Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2009
Yeah, it takes about two years for my characters to turn out consistant. Vera's changed so much since her first picture almost three years ago... It also took a while to get Xei down. And Val.

Mostly it's my own fault. I'm impatient and hate having to slow down to try and be consistant. Bleh.

:iconachiru-et-al:
Achiru-et-al Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2009
Ha ha... I'm impatient too. But I'm getting more and more patient as time goes by...

I kind of think that the characters will be consistent themselves when you get to know them enough. Whatever sticks will stick and whatever doesn't, falls off.

Ixaix Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2009
That's a good attitude. I'll need to try and adopt it. Of course, some characters are easier than others to pin down. For instance, Tallis is a violent crossdresser!

*gets hit in head by spell*

Hey!

Tallis: CROSSDRESSER?!

Ixaix: You pretended to by a GUY to kill your roomate. Yes, crossdresser!

:iconachiru-et-al:
Achiru-et-al Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2009
Xei: LOL. Meanwhile I pretend to be a guy because I can't get myself pregnant. Well basically that just means I'm not a woman, but it's not like I pretend to be a woman and... I lost my train of thought.

Aww, she's adorable. I like the way you used her pointed ears to express her feelings too, and you did really well without using her eyes. ^^ Did you draw these digitally straight into Photoshop or whatever program it is you use?
