Haruka by SnowCorridor Haruka by SnowCorridor
I had a major artblock doing this...:iconorzplz:
This is a very different experience for me,using such bold,warm colors. And not a single shade of blue,believe it or not! O_O But overall,I'm pretty satisfied with the results.^^

------------------------------------------
Bit of info: Haruka is a teacher in the prestigious high school, Mangekyou High. Due to the color of her attire, Haruka is often nicknamed "Lady Red" by the students and teachers. She is a homeroom teacher and supervisor of the school's Student Council.

Clever and intelligent,Haruka's main hobby is playing chess.She is an extremely skilled player,and is often seen studying various games and chess-related topics in her free time.

In the classroom, she is wise,calm and slightly strict, yet kind and even playful at times. All of the Student Council's members are also in her class, and thus she tends to favor them,feeling closer and more open to them than the rest of the student body. Nevertheless, Haruka is greatly respected and admired by many students and teachers alike.
----------------------------------
Whew...that's about it for now. I hope I'm getting better at writing stories about my OCs...

Fully drawn in SAI, with photoshop CS3 for adding text.^^

Of course, I also had to add this one to my list.

In a gallery full of cold colors and icy exteriors, this warm spot in your gallery somehow manages to balance the rest out in an elegant and delicate way. Pink is such a soft color, bright and warm, but in using the more magenta-style shades it isn't overwhelmingly or ostentatious; it's just pleasant. Again, your details are phenomenal, your characters are well thought-out, and your style is just amazing.

Wonderful work, and I look forward to more of it.

Ahaha. I just practice a lot, and even then, I get frustrated for quite some time before I come up with something decent.
At the very least, I learn something with every drawing. I encourage you to keep at it. With time and patience,you'll definetly see some improvment.

Hehe Thanks! It's a nice break from the usual routine.^^

I.HATE.ARTBLOCKZ.

It's like, I sit in front of my laptop quietly thinking what to draw, nothing comes up, I start panicking and sweating, my vision gets blurry,everything looks ugly, I flip an imaginary table and give up LOL. Repeat for 4 days.THE PAIN.

I'm really glad to hear you like the design! Makes me all happy inside. ^^

Haha, what if she came face to face with Madame Red? (sorry, Kuroshitsuji moment, since Madame Red was my favorite character in there, and you mentioned "lady red" is her nickname.)
Yeah, this IS different, I had to double check to see wh drew this, :XD:I mean, it's your style, I know it automatically, but mostly the coloring was so strongly cold.
Anyway, I really like this, she sounds & looks so cool! :D

Once again, you impress me Snow, this is a great change from the usual blue-only pictures and it came out great! She looks like the kind of teacher that would have the boys drooling and dreaming... XD
The story is good, although it mentions she favors the student council, so I wonder what her relationship with Raika is... XD

But overall, once again, great job.
