Does my mind wish to forget? by WinterSpectrum Does my mind wish to forget? by WinterSpectrum
old work...and i tried a new coloring technique :meow:

well...about this pic, here you have Naira (yeah, the little girl of the left) :meow::who was abandoned in the middle of an evacuation (while her father was fighting, her older brother died and her mother and sister run away thinking that she was dead when their home were attacked) Naira had to spend several nights alone with only a military lamp, facing the cold,hunger and fear as would any kids who got lost at middle of the chaos in the locust war. (a "clear" skecth of her [link])


the actual Naira (right):
many battles,destruction,chaos,fallen comrades and deaths everywhere have made ​​her more and more a cold person in terms of character, unfortunately her old fear,painful memories and difficult childhood comes to her from time to time that she always tries to don't remember, she can deal with it trying to forget,but unconsciously makes her feel alone inside,even if she denies, but that don't will prevent her to follow her duty as gear and kick some locust asses.:) i hope..
and i think that she needs a hug even if she is kinda agressive ;.;....

Just make your job and don't look back-N.W. :salute:
----
for be honest,i didn't had planed to paint this pic and less to show it :iconwthplz:, but i just listened to a old song of "Alter Bridge-Open your eyes" and i found the enough inspiration for finish it and try a new coloring technique! *_*

Open your eyes [link]
seriously, it's a good song and brings me beautiful memories! :happycry:, for some reason i enjoyed to paint this while i was listening it lol

well... other songs for inspiration (that makes me draw this o_o..i guess)

World so cold (Three days grace) [link]
In my hands (fuel) [link]

Well damn! This is AWESOME! I love the character, and the art is absolutely WIN. Her forearm wraps are really cool, I might add.

And the Open Your Eyes music is great too... I can see how it inspired you. It's going in my favorites.

I liked the idea of adding bandages into her arms, in a part of my story she is severely burnt in a locust attack. :)

Scars seem to carry special significance in the Gears of War universe. Every scar, physical and emotional, carries a lot of symbolism and importance. Hmm...

Anyway, 2 days seems about right, because it would take me WEEKS to do something that good. :)
