SoulCal : Nightmare 1P + 2P by 8-13 SoulCal : Nightmare 1P + 2P by 8-13
:iconu-e: :bulletpurple: Notes from ~U-E =

Aha, my icon makes a bit more sense, now? ^_-
This is your fair warning to expect - at any time - art from *other* fandoms, including, but not limited to Soul Calibur.


But first, a weather report =

Well...guess what, folks...? Saeru -still- isn't coming home. XD Somewhere around hitting London, severe SQUALLs and white outs started up...and the bad weather is worse all the way through Michigan with wind gusts of up to 50mph. Combine that with night winter driving -and- the fact the brakes really need to be rehauled -and- all the lushes out partying on New Years...well, yeah...so Sae went back up to Scarborough where it's safe.

So anyway, to amuse myself, I'm uploading more backlogged stuff.

This is actually two separate commissions from the past Anime Expo (which Sae actually had nothing to contribute in this case.) Since they are both just on plain white backgrounds (which is why I don't like to work on art -at- con) I combined them into one for your viewing convenience here. This is probably the nicest color work I've done in a while (that hasn't involved any paint) so I guess a bg would have been distracting from that anyway.

I had to go off of mostly memory for 2P, and for his default look, I actually used photo references of myself ^_^;

Also, if you'd like to see the Sieg portion by himself = [link]
(I'll post default Nightmare when I get a chance, too.)

Oh wow, there are still people wandering to our abandoned little account, and not for KH purposes. Thank you, though! I still really like this one (er...I guess these "two" technically...?)

I love these little surprises from y'all.

U-E, the coloring's amazing-good. But, then again, as if there'd be anything less from you...
I have to say, though ignoring the obvious (Soul Calibur, woah....), Sieg's ....hip(?) armor and sash... That whole little section... The coloring in that is just really fantastic.

*awaits more surprises*

It's actually Soul Edge in the pic here. (Soul Calibur is the "good" pretty ice sword, not pictured here...except I can't help clarify it by saying that Soul Edge the one with the eyeball, because sometimes he doesn't have an eyeball, and Soul Calibur did go evil and eyeballed temporarily...and nevermind...it's too much to keep straight...) XD
In any case...thank you! I love using the super-pale metallic tones now because of working on this, and I'm trying to leave motion areas a bit more scribbly to imply such. I personally dig Siegfried much more, so that's why I spent a bit more time on him. (Also, by now I have every tiny detail of Nightmare memorized, so I feel terrible for leaving out some bits...I just drew it too small to account for everything.)

Um...yeah I haven't slept in a while. It's becoming obvious to me. O_o

Oh...awaiting surprises, you say! Well, there happens to be a present coming soon for you. :heart:

Damn! I thought I had the right one.... I fail! (I've only played SC a handful of times... And, usually, I wasn't alive long enough to soak in the rich story...)

Awww, go get in bed!

Present? But, I haven't don't deser- Hell, I'm just gonna accept this one. Thank y'all, in advanced!

legasp! It's Nightmare! And i only know that because of my friend TJ. xD He's a big Soul Calibur fan.

Really good coloring! The armor on the one on the right looks so shiny! *u*

Might not be a fandom I'm familiar with, but the artwork is gorgeous as always and I love the designs, so I don't think I should worry. XDD!

Wow, poor Saeru. He has no luck with the weather, apparently. O_o;

xD Scarborough...
The name reminded me of a song I heard on the radio recently, Scarborough Fair.

Good luck to Saeru to get home soon!

"Are you going to Scarborough Fair, Parsley Sage Rosemary and Thyme?"
Is a song that we had to sing in sixth grade music class. I unfortunately cannot forget any of the songs we used to sing in music class. x-x I liked that it was medieval, though.

I shall attempt to return home tomorrow! Going to get brakes fixed now.

In fifth grade, our music class sang songs about larks and storms. xP Yours sounds more interesting.

^^ Hopefully you don't hit a deer in mid-air. Tell me if you do, hahaha... xD

"And now, our next visitor is a man who survived hitting a deer with his van...while in midair, thousands of feet above the ground!"

Or

(On the news)
"Oh, this is interesting: Yesterday, a man hit a deer with his van, thousands of feet in midair. With Santa and Prancer still in the hospital, it is unknown if Santa intends to press charges."

As much as I've looked up severe weather warnings, I have never seen that advisory. I kept seriously imagining Squall unloading a Blasting Zone out after Sae's van...so the image has been haunting me since. XD

I had a similar image, though mine was more him chasing after her car with his sword.

Either way...

I didn't mean for the two pics to end up matching...I was just trying to go for semi-generic poses...but they ended up being about the same scale/perspective + look more epic together...

Yes. They look way more epic together. I agree fully. But it comes out so well so why not?

Aww, so that's the whole picture. I like it.
*smile* Great, that's fine. Bring it on. Oh..and while you're at it, now that I've gotten to see Saeru in this [link] I am really craving to see more of your non-KH cosplay action now. :D

Well that just sucks now that Sae can't make it back for New Years even. :(

You are -the- best audience. :heart: Okay, well if Sae and I start putting up non-KH stuff in this gallery though, we should probably stick to when our costumes to match or at least be taking pics of each other.

And Sae is stuck in Canada forever it seems! XP

Wait, I think I know that one...it's a game with two giant swords....and one has this blinky eyeball....and something about souls....eternally retold....
...Nah, never heard of it. >XD

(Actually Sae...and -maybe- myself...will be cosplaying from 4 this year...)

I have to say that Nightmare is the prettiest (and perhaps also the silliest) looking in 2.
