The moment I wrote that title, a shudder went down my spine. Why do I feel so insecure all of a sudden?
So Girly Blue is a kind-hearted "magical girl" with a single mission: to spread rainbows and bubbles throughout the world and to slay the serial rappist demon lord
and drink his blood. That's not quite a single mission, I guess.
In this particular scene, she is helping out a poor boy who was cursed into the form of a crocodile and could only be restored to normal by "flying through the sky from sunrise to sundown."
He later turned out to be just a very talkative crocodile.
Well, onto art-speak.
Overall, I feel very "bleh" about this piece. The shot isn't particularly dynamic, the character doesn't stand out amongst my other creations, the crocodile and the pigeons have questionable anatomy, and the shading on the clouds could still use some work. I almost decided not to finish this, but oh well. Every piece is a stepping stone, right? This one just isn't encrusted with jewels and flair - just rainbows and an airborne lizard (which I guess is pretty cool in itself).
I apologize for the tasteless name "Girly Blue" and the fact that she has like no blue on her, but that was the only name I could think of aside from "Cutty Flam" (which, as some of you may know, already belongs to the magicalest girl of all
). That, and it vaguely sounds like "gullible."
Cutty Flam is totally cool, btw.
