Lily the Slayer by Karbo Lily the Slayer by Karbo
A portrait of Lily, the slightly psychotic fairy ^^ ( [link] )

She has been very little used up until now but she is definitely going to have her role later in the story :)

Lately I'm really trying to work more on the faces of my characters, to make them more lively and expressive.
And yes, I have watched higurashi no naku koro ni recently XD
"Uso da !"

That is not a bad thing. That is such a sad thing to see when an animator doesn't focus on expression on the character's face.. or when they overdo it. Either way, this is a good change. Wish more artists would do this. Best of luck and beware the hatchet-wielding Oni. ;)

Out of curiousity, how long would it take for Lily to make anything shes made contact with into plant life?

it depends of the thing she touches I think. For wooden surface it would be a matter of seconds for example ^^

I just realized she's basically insaulting everyone by "biting her tumb"...was that intentional?

That is why my one of my characters named Lykon returns with biting two of his thumbs at her

back in chaskspearian time...the gester of putting your thumb in your mouth behind your theeth in the way lily is doing in the picture is the equivalent to someone giving the "finger" in modern days...it was called "Biting your thumb"

She looks adorably scary.

But you gotta wonder, in a world where everything wants you for breakfast, is she really that more dangerous than anyone else?

If you're human, she wants to torture you because some humans tortured and kill her sister. Moral myopia much.

Due to updated research, Lily isn't trying to figure out anything. She's just ANGRY. The thumb in her teeth however gives the impression that she is thinking hard about something. The fact that she is angry brings up the question: What can make a psychotic fairy THIS angry? :fear: Oh, and the fact that she can turn almost anything into plant life is baffeling. I mean, even METAL?! All the more reason to :sprint: :thumbsup:

So Lily will make her comic debut soon? Will it show her trying to kill Lea, or just like Anna's transformation it's already happened?

And yes, absolutely brilliant artwork. You can feel the bloodlust radiating off the computer screen.

Now THAT is an expression! You can feel her fury just by looking at her. Honestly? She scares me. More so now that I've read her description on the wiki. It's not often that a picture can scare me, and even less often a cute girl like that. But she does. Congratulations.

--"Lately I'm really trying to work more on the faces of my characters, to make them more lively and expressive."--

Well, then, I'd have to say mission complete! The last two pictures I saw truly show that work well done. In fact, your picture, Cliffhanger, I thought had one of the most realistic half of a faces I had ever seen drawn/painted! Better and more animated than a picture, in some cases. The details were flawless. And now this picture... this one really shows the expressiveness of the character, the emotions, the disposition, et cetera. I just love those big, blue, frustrated eyes, and the bold lines add to the tense feel. Everything simply perfectly executed... not that this is a surprise to me.

She's got a face full of 6 iron staring her in the face and she's thinking bout her next move...

it's the quick and the dead, honey.

Iron is fatal to fairies...and this here .44 caliber slug wrapped comfortably in a jacket of copper and gunpowder says... you lose, baby-doll. Ain't no shame in it.. what would be a shame is the loss of your life.

I'd rather have her on my side than anything else but double 44 caliber hardballers combined with a 10 gauge shotgun and a .44 magnum double loop rifle.. and I mix some nasty shit into my bullets.... I'm a touch psychotic that way.

I'm a big caliber man who doesn't fuck around.

Lily makes me think of one of those characters who seems really kind until they draw someone close enough or into their trap then turns into the psychotic or a sadistic type character.
