Beef-Flavored Ramen by DCkiq
Beef-Flavored Ramen
New coloring technique! This one involves coloring from the bottom up on some parts, using a large soft brush before erasing edges with a hard one for the next "lump" above it (or below, or adjacent depending on how you have your lighting). I find this method is better than using a fading hard brush which I've been doing for most of my work previously, and is much better at shading convex shapes and contours and eliminates using the lineart to show creases and otherwise non-edge shapes. This is why I colored this picture TWICE, as a result of experimentation.

Anyway, Hector Miura, in the earlier arcs (setting 2009). Notice less build and hair? Reminiscent of when his character was originally named Seung.
Dairy Queen by DCkiq
Dairy Queen
Kiqki, May 2015

Nothing of her appearance has changed since her last pinup, other than outfit. But don't expect consistent outfits in my characters. Thought I would run my coloring skills since it's been a while, and exchanged some realism for style, as indicated my the colored lines~!
Also, I begin to employ a farm animal theme with the main characters. Cow, Bull, Rooster, Horse, etc.

Developmentally, Kiqki as a character is no longer related to Queen Mai, and instead has a humble background, with a humble mother who is now currently in the middle of design.
The Deck that Won me Locals (April 2015) by DCkiq
The Deck that Won me Locals (April 2015)
I actually built this deck last year, so it's actually a little difficult to use now that Pendulum Summoning is a thing. This deck generally rustles the jimmies of SixSams, Spellbook-Prophecy, Burning Abyss, and some Qliphort builds. Not only is it trollsy and HILARIOUS to watch people rage-quit at the sight of these guys, but it also delivers.
My Observations by DCkiq
My Observations
There can be a pretty decent-looking lass that many folks say "Hey, I wouldn't mind holding her hand, or sharing a drink with her." about her. But slap some spectacles and a vaguely video-game-ish thing on her, and BAM! Gamers everywhere are gonna be buffing their bananas all over that shit.

Just kidding. It's insulting.
Sketch - Liberty by DCkiq
Sketch - Liberty
My newfound coin collecting hobby has led to my infatuation with Lady Liberty.

For those of you who've been my buddies for long enough... or just aware of it... do you miss my sexier pieces of art?

Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn’t mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how many followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them! Heart
