Sleight Stride by BlueRoseArkelle Sleight Stride by BlueRoseArkelle
Sleight: The use of dexterity or cunning, especially as to deceive.
Stride: A long, decicive step in a specified direction.

;w; Just my OCs, being silly...! :heart:

TvT Haha yeah...I don't even know where to begin here.
So uhm, I guess that some of my watchers probably know that I have a few personal projects that I'm working on that I hope to one day make into manga/webcomics. Its a silly pipe-dream, I know, but a goal I have for myself none the less. TvT Anyways, these are characters from my personal project, "Sleight".
eve Err, not going to go into details here but if you know me/my characters then you might know a bit about it already but in basic terms its like fantasy/horror sort of thing. I have no idea how to explain it xD //slapped

;v; yeah....I wanted to draw some of the very important characters together. ;_; I....absolutely suck at drawing multiple characters in one scene, so this was in part to practice that as well.

//character blah
TvT Uhm, some of the characters here should be familiar by now, while others are very new! The closest in view, IbbI, i've shown here before and she is sort of like the "main" character I guess xD. I've explained a bit about her before so i'll skip that~
Second closest is Hollow, and I haven't shown her yet before I don't think! ;w; Er, i'll explain more about there characters over time like I usually do, but Hollow is a fun and adventurous type of person. She and Phyre are best friends and are quite the chaotic duo. I can't say much about her for spoiler reasons, but lets just say she "cleans up messes". xD She (like Phyre) is also rather dramatic and animated, and also lol almost never takes off her shades xD haha. Also in case you wonder I wouldn't classify her as a "tomboy" really, but totally a BAMF xD
Next is Caliginous, who you'll only know about before now if you've watched my YouTube channel~ TvT Err, Caliginous is quiiiite hard to explain. Actually really hard to explain. But I think first and foremost who should be said about Caliginous is that gender is irrelevant. Technically speaking, Caliginous is male, but doesn't like being referred to with a gender specific pronoun like "he" or "she". "Ne" is the gender neutral pronoun that Caliginous prefers to be referred to by, so if you ever wonder why I write "ne" or "nem" or "nir" and not "he" "him" or "his", its with respect to the character. (side note I don't mind if you use "he" etc. , but Caliginous would find it disrespectful) Anyways, Caliginous is a very contradicting sort of person. On one hand, ne wears bright colored and ridiculous clothes, but speaks in a flat and boring monotone. Contradiction and ambiguity is a constant thing with nem xD. As another pretty hilarious contradiction, ne works in Phyre's bakery but hates cake and sweets. Also being that nir is chubby is more contradictions. xD Oh and btw don't ask me about the horns/coloration on my OCs, I can't say much about that~
Next closest is Silence, who I have shown here before but at the time he didn't have a name //shot. xD Also I lol because he looks sooo odd in "normal" clothes. It isn't his thing at all, so its so weird seeing him in them haha~ Anyways, he is another who is kind of hard to explain....well without major spoilers like with Hollow. Erm, lets just say that his name is the exact opposite of his role, but rather fitting for his attitude. He's a listener, not a talker for the most part. But he isn't like, taciturn or anything and when he wants to talk its usually not nice. He also hates Phyre. Like, REALLY hates Phyre. xD
xD Also yes, in case you are wondering, he is albino.
eve And the farthest is Phyre, but really, I don't need to say anything about him. xD So yeah.
//end character blah

TvT Err, i'll talk more about each of them later in the future. I don't want to ramble on about all that for this~

;v; Err....but uhm as far as the drawing goes, it took a really, really long time omg. @_@ Partially because of school/other things. I've been soooo busy lately, and just didn't really have the time or focus to work on this that much. TvT But i'm really glad its finally done! xD Oh, i'll put the YT video on my channel up soon too~

xD I uh, think the idea should be kind of easy to understand. My society disrupting OCs disrupting society. xD Loitering is bad, but my OCs don't care. HATERS GONNA HATE #YOLO. //slapped
;w; But err....I wanted to have a sort of harsh orange if it is just turning sunset. ;_; I dunno, I guess I failed. I've been staring at this drawing for so long now I don't even know anymore. TvT B-but I still really love it was a lot of fun to make. Lots of new things and really pushing myself to do better and try more complex things.

;___; I just....need to be better. I need to try harder and work at becoming more experienced with every single thing I draw. Its like a personal goal for me. I know that making my stories come to life in manga/comic form will require so much skill that I realistically don't have yet, so its really important for me to try and do different things and practice the things I don't feel confidant at. I guess the improvement is not always so great or fast, but I need to at least keep trying or I don't see what the point of me drawing is ._.

Anyways, there are a ton of other things I wanted to say but I just don't even remember them now and I think i've rambled way too much as it is again anyways. TvT B-but thank you so much guys for all of the support and likes/favorites/watches/etc.
;//v//; L-lately i've gotten so much more support and interest, and I have to say thank you so much! I don't know if I deserve it, but I really really appreciate it :heart:

IbbI, Hollow, Caliginous, Silence, and Phyre all belong to me and are part of my personal story, "Sleight"

If caliginous doesn't leik being referred to as a certain gender does that mean that he is a transvestite ? TuT

I need help with drawing poses and curls, could you offer up any tips? And phyre is awesome and so are IbbI and cal, by the way. I love them all very much and I've had a character for the longest who is just like phyre, Except it's a girl and she had did, as well as she wore long sleeved clothes like IbbI.
ChibiTomoko Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013
Phyre is my favorite, hands down. He's epic enough to have knives in his hoodie in plain sight for ra's sake! But IbbI and Cal. Are tied for second place. Arkelle-senpai, i'd like some advice-i guess I'm good at copying others work, but when I do my own it looks like trash, literally. Any ideas to get ne out of this rutt?
