I'm so upset that I didnt have any money to purchase this when it showed up as the weekly shirt at eightysixed! Eliza wasnt always my first choice of votes, but I love her design and this shirt simply shows it in spades! Congrats on making it!

Wow, thanks!! I am glad that she comes off menacing enough to seem like a boss!! She's pretty evil so I am glad that aspect of her came off well in this picture :heart:

This is awesome! Love the colors & composition & detailing. The blood effect could have some drippings maybe, to make it more liquid-like, but still, awesome. I'm so glad Eliza won the first vote, she's my favorite of the female designs.

Thank you!!! I am happy Eliza won too. I am rooting for Beowulf 100% in the next round. I would love for him to make it in. :heart:

Yeah, I'd prefer Taliesin or even Leduc myself, but Beowulf seems to have a better chance of getting in, so I'll be rooting for him as well ^^

She was my favorite out of all the third character selection.

It looks like you turned it up a notch with this drawing, i can't wait for its Beowulf counterpart.
There's so much going on with this piece, first being the many layers of depth using color. I'm having trouble pin pointing which area you had most fun with because everything looks like it took equal effort. My favorite part would have to be the area around the arm right before it turns to bone, it really looks like cut up meat thanks to all the texture you fit in. The face is interesting, though i think the lips could be a little higher, but lower lips seem to be part of your style so it doesn't bother me that much. Excellent choice making the sash a dark color, i believe had you left it the original color it would have taken away from the composition. As for the red parts which I'm assuming is blood even though its shaped like fire, i think it would of been better if the top aligned itself with the tip of her crown to make it look even more centered. The background is very detailed and looks very professional, the cool colors compliment everything that's going on in the middle.

I Have to say this piece has me excited, it feels you have come out of a good place here, i almost feel like doing an Eliza drawing myself now.

Thank you!! :heart:

I drew this for a contest but didn't luck out on it which is part of the reason it has more polish than a lot of my work that was come out recently. I got most of it done right after Eliza was announced but my computer and work seemed to want to plot against me so I would take ages. But I am just glad I got it done and within a deadline so at least something went right.

As for the red, I am sort of reluctant to explain it because everyone else's interpretation of it is sort of more interesting than mine haha. But looking back, aligning it might have been a good idea. I used my homemade brushes on the background and any texture on the piece and this is the first time I used it on a serious piece and I like it a lot. I am slowly finding a way to get my digital stuff to resemble my traditional paintings so I am super happy. I am sort of surprised and happy that something good came out of my art recently. I was beginning to think I was in some purgatory where I couldn't do anything.

This is so different from the usual Skullgirls art, it really stands out so wonderfully.
Loving it~!

Thank you!!

For some odd reason I have been having trouble transitioning Skullgirls into a style that is sort of mine when I draw it. I love the style they are in but I want to add my own twist to them and sometimes it is hard to find a way to make the characters retain their own characteristics with my style. I am glad it worked out here for the most part. I love Skullgirls and it is rare that I have something I am willing to show off so I am glad to finally have something I like :heart:

Well, you pulled it off, with style and your own style.
Therefore, a winner is youuu~
Also, I'd think maybe even if your arting is what you'd thing to be bad, put it up anyway for giggles. You might just be proved wrong by fan comments and such. ...Well, you don't have to, but sometimes it's good to know these things for certain. D:

Thank you I am glad I was able to get you excited for her!

She was my second pick and I am so happy that someone I wanted made it in. There is just something so appealing about a slow scythe user and the blood gimmick and stances are just bonuses for me! Now I am rooting for Beowulf; my life would be so complete if he made it in!! :heart:

I am not going to lie but I was sort of skeptical of Annie at first. But seeing all the art people produced for her and seeing all the hype in the final round she sort of began to grow on me. I would not at all be disappointed if she made it in. And Marie has the cool factor so I wouldn't mind her either :heart:

I agree. It was very had to just choose a couple in the last round because it seems there is something I like about most of the characters whether it was their playstyle or their design. They are just so great. I hope that we get Skullgirls 2 or something because I think it would be a shame if these characters remained concepts forever.

I doubt they would allow that to ever happen , sense even the staff want some of the characters like venus in the game later on in the future to, because they want to add some concepts to make it funnier and cooler like giving venus a man voice like Dr. Girlfriend from Venture Brothers

They won't make a second game, but I bet you they did this to see how many people would like to see these characters based on thier ratings , I bet you they will be in the game later on, no way in hell they can ignore the fans like that
