Devintas - Litost by merlinfan
Devintas - Litost
"Litost is a state of torment created by the sudden sight of one's own misery"

Cover I've done for mine and my friend's novel, Devintas.
It's a 2-4 part story about two werewolves who hunt together (Like demons and stuff. It's basically like the TV Supernatural). The first part is about Shadow (Or Ryder), my oc, and how his backstory will tie into the bigger picture. It's pretty complicated and I won't give anything away, but I have a permit to show a preview of the prologue to pique some interest.
But a little about Ryder first anyway:
He's 22, an ex-soldier (I stress the 'ex'. He quit due to realising it wasn't all glory and honour like he was taught), punked up after becoming a rogue hunter. He's rather infamous for hunting mainly for sport (That's where he gets his renowned title, Shadow), so he's not all that educated on monsters, as you'll realise later on if you decide to read it when we release it. He's pretty cocky and naive at first, but after hanging around with Joon, the other guy, he starts to get a little more sense knocked into him. 
I hope people will give it some feedback or whatnot, whether they would like to see more, etc.
The flowers in his mouth ARE symbolic, but I won't say what they mean ;p

A young man stalked through the doors of the warehouse with a haughty arrogance. His scuffed boots kicked up a cloud of gravel and dust as he walked and his jacket billowed behind him. The weight of the hog sticker hanging limply in his hand was oddly comforting, and nerves tingled with the adrenaline that was coursing through him. There was swagger in his step and a smirk adorning his angular face.

The beast he'd been hunting for the past week had been almost too easy to track down, and the trail of shredded corpses it'd left littering the town had practically led Shadow right to it.

Stepping into the middle of the warehouse, he tightened his grip on the blade and smirked. The hunter swung the handle of the blade back and forth, making faux chopping motions in the air.

"Get out here, you fucking psycho,"

He inched forward, kicking rocks in various directions, hoping to aggravate the bastard.

"What's the matter, eh? Shy all the sudden? Didn't seem it when you were ripping out those poor chicks' stomachs - or when you turned that kid 'n' his trike into mincemeat. Or are you just a fucking coward? A big, ol' scared-y Ghoul." He barked a curt, humourless laugh and spat at the ground, "C'mon then, chicken-shit. Time to repent. I'm about to give you your just-desserts – "

A deep, guttural growl reverberated throughout the room, followed by a series of short snarls and a metallic clang. Shadow barely had time to brace himself as a hulking mass of limbs propelled itself from the rafters and charged.

The young hunter stumbled slightly, but quickly composed himself and released a short howl before brandishing his machete, assailing towards the Ghoul with a twisted grin.

Upon closer inspection, Shadow had established that this was the weirdest fucking Ghoul he had ever seen. Its skin was a pallid green, and its face was just… disgusting. Congealed blood covered its cheeks and small horn-shapes infested its balding head.

Just before the two beings clashed, the Ghoul dropped on all fours, and with a burst of speed, launched itself off the ground. Before Shadow could move to block the attack, the beast's bony, clawed hand sunk into his abdomen and hurled him back.

A trickle of blood seeped from between the man's teeth. Without taking his eyes off the bastard, he stuck out his pink tongue and wiggled it derisively, before lapping at the scarlet residue on his lip. He eyed the creature's pointed teeth and the forked tongue flickering savagely between them.

"Dude... I feel sorry for your mother, because you are one ugly son-ova-bitch."
Drawing took about 6-7 hours and I'm dead
I probably only like the drawing for the red eye I did :')

Aido Seiya ~ I-Chu by merlinfan
Aido Seiya ~ I-Chu
Despite it probably still having loads of mistakes I've foolishly overlooked.
But I think it's still possibly the best one I've ever done so--
I started playing the new Japanese Idol rhythm game I-chu and wanted to draw this happy Labrador Aido. I guess it's partially a request since I would've given up on it not even half way through if it hadn't been for my friend, who I don't think I've seen anyone so excited about my art.
But after messing around with the backgrounds too - which I am TOTALLY inexperienced in- this was the result
I'll stop rambling now.
Time: Honest to god, I don't know - about 20 hours 
Morning Haze by merlinfan
Morning Haze
I got bored of my twitter icon and thought I'd try drawing myself one...
More colour practise too - I think I'm starting to get the hang of how they work?? I was watching a tutorial that was explaining about colour reflections and such, so you can tell I tried to apply that
Yeah, I'm still suffering from impatience to see this movie, but this is probably how I'd imagine Ko on a sunny morning in SF without having to get up to do any work.

I hope I captured his beauty right <3
Do you ever look back at your work and how you used to be like 3 years ago and want to erase your existane
Shinkane by merlinfan
Okay this one's p gross
I don't know what drove me to even finish this after realising how much I detested it, but I saw this adorable fanart and wanted to do my own redraw of it, this being the result... unfortunately.
Shinya and Akane from the movie (Is it just me or is he so much cooler now that he's joined the Guerrilla??) with a shot of the Shambala Float temple, if that's what it's called. 
Waiting for this movie feels like years..
Ohmai, when was the last time I wrote a journal entry?! O.o
(Don't worry, it's not a life update.. really.)
So basically, after seeing some AMAZING examples, I've decided to start making a fursuit, or at least a mask (I wants them digilegs too :I). I've looked up on the internet for some good tutorials, with foam, plastic mesh, resin, etc; but what's the EASIEST and most effective method/ material to use? I'm totally new at this, so I have absolutely NO clue. Any tips are GREATLY appreciated! ^-^

:SNK: Jean stamp by Yellow--Arrow

I am 15 years old, I'm an animal lover and drawing is what I do in my free time. My favourite TV show is Supernatural, and my favourite anime is Attack on Titan. Also, my mother is an artist which is who I get my drawing spirit from. I also do poetry and have a poem published in a children's poetry book (I wrote this when I was 11). I have a strange obsession with demons... which, I wouldn't say they're my favourite animal ('cause they're not animals), but probably my favourite species (characterwise. I am NOT a Satanist, or whatever you call it. Nor do I worship Satan or anything like that. Just, demon fictional characters are my interest.)
