MaiHiME: No Light by yuiseppe MaiHiME: No Light by yuiseppe
Kuga Natsuki and Fujino Shizuru from the MaiHiME franchise, set to 'The Drowning Years' by The Delgados.

Inspired by the lyrics from Florence and the Machine's 'No Light No Light':

"You are the hole in my head
You are the space in my bed
You are the silence in between
what I thought and what I said..."

So I'm trying out openCanvas - tones ahoy!! Palm rejection is fairly good, but still got a few errant lines. Brushes are a lot more taxing on the little Atom CPU, but still largely useable. My real gripe at this stage is that openCanvas' interface doesn't detect small movements of the stylus very well, so the GUI's finicky little sliders don't slide well, and the cursor lags. Drawing-wise, movement and pressure detection is perfectly fine, though.

openCanvas made a horrible initial impression actually - I'd lost this piece to a corrupt save within 1 minute of using openCanvas =_= Since then, I've experienced a few random read-in violations (sometimes fatal, sometimes not). So it's not the most stable of things, but the ruler feature has me *HOOKED*. Powerful. Fast. Simple. Love it to bits.

I see these neat fanarts and fave them, and when I take a look at the person behind it, it's so often you. I really like your style. ^^

Thanks Rondo :D hehe actually your work inspires me to make mine more dynamic, so in a way I'm kind of imitating you XD Ironic, huh? (Also, Mami in your webcam is just ... too much lol *dies*)

Hah, I think we're in a cycle of sorts, then. You know, your work inspires me in turn to, in broad terms, just try a different approach at things. But I guess it can't be a very bad thing if our arts improve in the end. X)

(And yeah, I know. I completely lost it when I bumped into it somewhere in the net.)

Great art! This scenario captures Natsuki's uselessness perfectly. Only she could have a gun aimed right at her opponent and still clearly be losing.
yuiseppe Featured By Owner May 9, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Lol well I guess it depends on her resolve on using the gun.
CommodoreZeke Featured By Owner May 9, 2013
And on what the gun shoots. We don't really know because she never hits anybody, but based on her general effectiveness, I'm betting whatever's in there would just go "ting" and bounce off.

*snerk* I thing that "ting" thing might actually have happened in the series XD
