Arioch Collab with Serrifth by TasiaChiba Arioch Collab with Serrifth by TasiaChiba
Finally! After a good two to three months of working on this, it's finished! *_* I spent far more time on this than I actually care to say, haha, but I feel it was worth it, at least. But I am SUPER proud of the work on this piece!

Basically, this is Arioch in all his glory with Elric facing him, as depicted by =Serrifth. Her sketches and inks are so mightily tasty, NUMM!!!! I'm afraid I did take just a few small liberties with her lineart, but I hope the result was worth it. Make sure to go check out =Serrifth's other images! Go, see, seeeeee!~

I always have this intense, firey feel whenever I think of Arioch, hence all the blasted orange, yellows, and reds all over this piece! Ohhhh the reds..... *dies*

If you don't already know who Arioch and Elric are, go out and find some books by Michael Moorcock. Elric is the Eternal Hero, and specifically from Elric of Melnibone and the other following books in The Elric Saga. It's great high fantasy in the old style and the imagery is wickedly delightful!

Arioch, Elric, etc. Michael Moorcock
Lineart and concept =Serrifth
All colors meh, whoo!
Textures: ~lock-stock & ~wachowicz

The Shtuff: Colored in Photo Shop CS2 with mah tabby (a generic off-brand). Two textures were used for effect, one from lock-stock and one from wachowicz's. Other textures were created by myself! ^_~

I think the has to be one of the most accurate potrayls of Arioch's personality. The little smirk and he bright "look at me I'm all awesome" colors.
Great work with the colors.

Slowly working my way through these books now, got bored and decided to see what's up on DA for Elric, and I found this. Its wonderful and amazing, I love the colors and the floaty hair, and the glyph in the background. Great collab, kudos to you both. :)

homg, Estraven is my hero! *_______* (I sketched a piccu of my interpretation of him about three years ago... it's actually on this account, lol!)

*giggles* Seriously, though, I've read a good many of her books. Probably close to a third, lol, and I own all the one's I've read... Here's to awesome author's!

It was so unfair when Estraven died. T_T And that moment on the glacier when Estraven was going through kemmer was pretty intense.

Cheers. And to Isaac Asimov as well!

It was it was! Oh... I cried for soooo long when they killed him! *wipes a tear* Ahhhh, SUCH a beautifully contructed character. And Le Guin has such a bad penchant for doing that... ugh >_< (Something similar in her Eye of the Heron.)

And yush!! Asimov ROCKS! *___*

Hmm.... and McKillip and Card are also long time faves, har har. ^_~

Erm... yeah, I have this thing for older writers, hahahahaha *dies*
