Zuri - Portrait by Aikurisu Zuri - Portrait by Aikurisu
Slight Update: My friend Gaf made mention that he felt Zuri's skin tone wasn't quite right. He was right, though it was intentional as a border experiment. The more I looked at it, though... well, I decided to just ditch it. =P

Well, it goes without saying that I've been pretty reclusive these last couple of months. Despite Guild Wars 2 playing some small part in this, some issues in life made me as creative as a brick and I believe that if you don't learn or feel anything for what you're creating then you shouldn't be drawing at all. So I've been merely lurking around here, but ever since yesterday I've decided to try and make up for lost time, tackle my inbox, and get some new stuff drawn... even if they're not overly ambitious projects. For now I'm just glad to draw anything, so here's some more art for Zuri! Enjoy!

Anyhoo, what's sad is it was during this month last year that I was infinitely more productive and having the time of my life. (Drawing Zuri, no less, heh.) So let's try and make up for it this October...

I really like this.
The facial expression says a lot (though I dare not try to interpret it) and I like the bluish hairstyle.

The stones on her necklace match her eyes almost exactly. Was this done on purpose, or a happy accident?

On purpose. =D Heh, it was a selfmade gift to her from Saul, who afterward... well... >_> <_< >_>;;

Anyhoo, I have to admit I'm slowly developing a thing for dark-skinned, blue-haired women. Exotic!

Dark skinned ladies can be pretty nice.
Blue hair can be adorable (Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim) Of course... then you have the entire anime hair color spectrum... Blue, green, pink, etc....

lol, back in the day I had a thing for pink-haired chicks, (Mai Ayanami is one and one of my oldest original characters on that note...), and then there's Azura, who had green hair, but because I've been slowly reinventing my original universe to lack some of the anime-ish feel it was born with... I'm leaning towards recreating her as white-haired. Makes sense lore-wise, too, unless I spin tale that she's a rare case blessed by some sort of nature spirit or... yeah.

I have some characters too that have 'unorthodox' hair colors. I have a character with the green hair too. O_O Perhaps you remember her?

I almost read 'Azura' as "Azula" and thought there might be some more Avatar art coming from you...

Breyadina, right? =D (For some reason my mind is hazy on it, though, so not entirely sure...)

Ha, yet speaking of... I know one friend of mine would love to see me draw Azula one of these days...
