merryweather as a boy by cirocco merryweather as a boy by cirocco
well this is for the competition at cain-club where we are asked to draw any character in the Cain series cross-dressing.
i have to admit that dressing merry in this get-up wasn't exactly boyish but hey, she's wearing pants for once! (it's always flowy skirts for her in the manga)
i continue with the style i employed in the previous lolita picture [link] . i am getting addicted to this pen drawing thing. no guidelines, no sketches, just monochromatic ink pen :D

pilot G-TEC-C4 pen

I really like this one, I actually voted for it as well. The use of one color is excellent, very good work!

hey, i think it could be suitably boyish. or rather, suitably boyish for some pre-victorian era. either way, she looks fantastic.

She is truly beautiful. You have the most intriquet detail i've seen and I really love it. The clothes are incredably accurate. I love the background. It goes well with the coloring. THe boots are awsome. And the pants are really well done. The only better thing you could have done from what I see, it almost looks like she is in a horse riding get up.

Yes they are! Funny how those things work out isn't it?

Well...i guess we are even though. I wish I could draw like you. And maybe you like my animal pictures? *shrugs* This world is just messed up that way.

And once again I need to get into that series. Last time you moved me to do it, but I got disinterested because my computer wouldn't load the manga fast enough. :D I like this though. I'm gonna give it another shot~ <3

W00t, she looks like those cowgirls on the ranch. Cool!

I think drawing with pens without any guidelines shows that you have great talent! At least, that's what my teacher says. The designs on the clothing is cool~


I think that you choose great backgrounds for your pictures~

This piece looks really good, with the brown tones, background and everything. Drawing without guidelines is cool; builds up confidence in the lines.
