Some Infernal Combination by drawitout Some Infernal Combination by drawitout
*LadyoftheGeneral: I wanted to ask Threnody why she's sometimes combined with Cyra and...Ammut? And which she prefers, being on her own, or being in that body....who's mind is in control in that form?

And, um, because I'm dumb, what exactly ARE you, Threnody?

----

"*repeats under her breath, puzzled* ...Combined...? *tone becomes harsh* Ammut?
To fuse with such a being would be infinitely worse than any torture one could devise. ...And aside from that, it would be an irreversible death sentence, though a horridly prolonged one. Do I appear fused to you?
*cocks head to the side, tightens grip on spear* I do hope I don't appear stupid enough to do so, either....

*exhales heavily, continues in more level, but rather bitter tone*
In such a scenario, a demon would take control. Even I couldn't stop it for long. If you offer your body to a monster you cannot really expect to get it back.

...And what am I?
...I suppose the best word I could give you is 'demon'... somewhat ironic. I'm not of the same breed as ammut, by far. In fact, there are few you could consider more at war with such things as us... hmm... as myself.
But I don't have a given species or race to speak of. ...I doubt any other descriptor would hold much meaning.

But, now I am... curious...
What are you, and what do you know of such a species?"

Another response from my "Ask" journal.
Uh... yeah. Thren is rather impolite and full of herself, ain't she?
But she has no connection to the concept mentioned, The Sick, anymore... so she's decidedly confused and a bit alarmed by the knowledge and perceived accusation that question contained.

I SHOULD NOT HAVE SAID CYRA WOULD ANSWER FIRST. LOOK WHAT THAT DID, LOL.

Oh, yeah, Threnody's hair+ Transparency+ TRACKPAD= Major pain in the butt. :nod:

...I realised she looks better with a white background after looking between the lovely error white dA is right now, and a mock-up of dA green I did in Photoshop. Pardon the edit, but I do believe this is an improvement. c':>

P.S. dA is still majorly messed up for me, soo... aaaah.
I hope it gets sorted soon because this is ridiculous. Eek.

Beautifully terrifying. You've inspired me to stop mucking about and start working properly on my own creatures. I'm so watching you from now on.

I really love the intricate detailing you added, especially with the bone skull and her clothes. Your artwork always has great composition, you either do a great job planning them out or just have a naturally awesome eye for it (:

Thank you very much, and... it's funny you should mention that, as in drawing this I was thinking about how I want to add more detail in my work. I had a lot of fun with what I did add here.
And... wow, I think that's the first time someone's complimented my composition. To be honest... I almost always wing it. xux
But, thank you! That's very motivating to read. n_n

Threnody seems like one child I should really get to know.
She appears to be full of herself but there are people like that,
so I can understand where she is coming from.
As to deviantART....it's giving me quite a bit of trouble as well.
Hopefully, as you have said, this gets sorted out very soon.

She's got... quite a sense of self importance, yeah... between you and me she has rather needed it to still be around at this point. *cough*
I was surprised, but am glad *LadyoftheGeneral asked her a question... it reminded me how fun she is to work with. Too bad she's so minor in her associated storyline, really. c:

Yeah, things are better since yesterday but it seems to be dragging on this time.

I have no doubt...ah now it makes sense as to why
she is the way she is..

I guess at times it's a good thing to have someone ask a child a question
that way they have a chance to come back to the light and explain themselves
to everyone. :giggle:

I have to agree with you there.

Oh, thank you! I didn't mention it, but... I actually drew this on paper that is just terrible with my markers, heh. I had to be pretty careful so they didn't just bleed everywhere. :giggle:

And, if you want your image to show the colour of the page it is on, you simply need to have an absence of colour in the art where you would like it to be transparent. In most programs, save for ms paint, you just use the eraser tool. This does not work on "Background" layers, a.k.a locked layers, which scanned imaged usually open as. If you are opening a scanned image then you should duplicate the Background layer, then delete the original locked one.

Right now I am using the trackpad of this laptop, so it's hard to do a good job. I am using the select tool on the white of the paper and then deleting it, for Threnody's hair that doesn't work too well, so I have to use the trackpad to erase around it bit by bit.

...

If you want the background to be specifically "dA green" no matter where you put it, I would recommend taking a screenshot and opening it in whatever program you use, then using the ink dropper tool on whatever colour you want.

...Did that answer your question? c:

as for my question, yes, that answered it perfectly~ i figured that you erased the area around the drawing, i was just making sure :meow:

I use Prisma markers, occasionally with Laurentians as well.

I'm glad it did. c:

nice! i don't think i could use markers...i just use prismacolor pencils but i've never heard of Laurentian

I started off using just Prismascolour pencils, too, actually. The markers are wonderful once you get used to them. c:

Laurentian is a ridiculously cheap brand that can actually work alright with the Prisma markers when you are careful. It can be very useful.

:iconoovanilla-twilightoo:
well that's good : ) i just don't trust myself with them because i'm basically a perfectionist when it comes to my work and i know if i put a color down and don't like it, i can't change it. but i really want to get the white or no color prisma marker cause i've seen it used on the pencils and it takes out all the little spots the pencils will not cover and makes the color really smooth

Yeah, the blender markers are really good for that. You can get great effects with them.

I love the way you have her bonemask, and your anatomy with her coloring is very smexy. I love how nicely you put in her detail with all that lovely linework along with the shadowing and shading in her.
the neck looks fantastic and wow really all the anatomy is perfect, the tummy, bust, thighs. I mean you did an amazing job with her I love it.
I love the blade tail and how you even put that engraved pattern on her spear.
I really like this and so in the favs it goes

Thank you very much. In hindsight I probably would have benefited from actually looking at a skull to remember how to draw them but I think it looks okay, being of a non-existant species anyhow. Ahaha....

I tried to give Thren anatomy more befitting of a warrior type here, I'm glad you like how it looks! It's certainly fun to draw. c:

Thanks so much. n_n
