Tutu vs. Kraehe by Zhentee Tutu vs. Kraehe by Zhentee
Woo! This was fun to do, and with it I killed three birds with one stone, because I wanted to:
1. Do Princess tutu fan art since that series was the cutest thing ever!
2. Try something completely different from what I’m used to
3. Enter the contest DA had going, even though I know I wont win!
But didn’t have enough time for three separate drawings.

And I was able to do all that. I used the horizontal calligraphy brush for this piece and the two people were done completely on one layer. The BG being the only other layer to this piece.

Princess Tutu really is an adorable show, if you haven’t seen it and you like either ballet, magical girl anime’s, fantasy stories, or cute romances, you should definitely watch it! To me these two are a very good idea of good and evil, but who is good and who is evil is really subjective. (warning, some spoilers to follow) Okay sure, so most people will tell you that Princess Kraehe flat out was an evil monster, and that she did nothing but terrible things, over and over! But she would not have even started doing those terrible things had Princess Tutu not come along and put her nose in other people’s business! Not to mention the raven was just tricking and using Kraehe. As far as she knew, she was doing what was right. Okay so there wouldn’t have even been a story had that not happened but still! (end spoilerness)

Any hoo technical stuff, I don’t know ballet well enough to make up my own poses so:

Music I listened to on repeat while drawing: [link] , [link] (<-- ignore the video its weird, the original I was going to show has a smiley face in the url! stupid DA!) , and [link]

Oh man, I looooooved this series!! I didn't care too much for Kraehe til the end. Then I felt I understood the character...

Like the coloring process in this, using the background as the dark values...makes me wanna try something similar. And for some reason I find it neat you chose to show them from the back instead of from the front. It helps the with mood I think

I think most people felt that way about Kraehe. Fakir too! I thought he was suck an ass until near the end.
I say definitely try it! It was really fun to do. =)

Haha, yeah. I pretty much thought Fakir was just in there for the yaoi demographic, then he got all awesome at the end.

LOL I never even thought of the Yaoi Demographic when I watched it, I thought he was there as someone to hate and maybe die later. But he did get rather bad ass at the end!

Haha, watch it again with that in mind. You'll definitely see a little gay in there.

I love the luminosity! It really seems as if they're glowing! The angle of the tutus is spot on, but they do appear a bit manly from the back, and it feels as if their feet have been ignored.

Thanks for the comment, :hug: I did kind of ignore the feet now that I think about it, I'll try and pay more attention to them next time!
