Exorcists by dragonsong12 Exorcists by dragonsong12
The exorcists of the world of D. Gray Man.
In the front is Allen Walker, to the left is Krory (Crowley), to the right is Lavi, and in the back is Miranda Lott (or Lotto, I think "Lott" sounds more German though)

Colored using the same technique as the halloween image, only a little more advanced. Stole the method from Luco a.k.a Meek-o-bits [link] (Clearly she's a bit better at it than I am ^^;)
I really like the hand-painted look it has (though i smoothed out the lighting on Allen's face and now it stands out because it's too smooth ^^;) Perhaps I'll keep experimenting with it.

You may notice two prominent exorcists missing from this image: Kanda and Lenali. WELL! There is an excellent reason as to why they aren't shown! A great, amazing reason! It's - HEYLOOKOVERTHERE! *runs*

Late reply, but thanks so much! And I completely agree, Miranda and Krory are indeed the best of the bunch! I wish they were around more often. *sigh* I just want to hug her, poor Miranda.

Awesome job:D
I especially love Miranda-chan's expression, so full of confidence.:aww:
Hopefully we'll get to see her like that in the manga sometime in the future:-)

Amen to that! I love Miranda, it makes me alittle sad that her Innocence doesn't allow her badass combat scenes like the rest, but I hope she gets to play a big part (I was ridiculously pleased when she came back :D)

Thanks for the update though! I hope it goes away soon.

Once again, Jump Ultimate Stars is to blame for the addiction, yes?

(I love that smiley, I don't know why :D)
Actually, this one was the other way around - believe it or not! My sister started reading it because she thought the characters looked cool and we both got hooked long before we even realized it what Shonen Jump! Then at Otakon we were introduced to JUS and it was kinda like "A game where we can have the D.Gray Man and One Piece charcaters on the same team! MUST. HAVE.

...and the rest, as they say, is history. :D

Yay, I'm glad you decided to finish this one after all! It looks too cool, the colors and especially the highlights are great. The shadows on Lavi look really good! And Crowley's face looks really good too. You got the gaunt, high cheek bones look down. The colors on this are excellent!
Now maybe a picture to accompany it, one with a few of the Noahs..? hahah

Haha! Oh noes! Don't get me inspired! ...though drawing tyki would make life awesome (I love him). :D

Thank YOU, by the way, for your advice on fixing Miranda! It was a big help! I'm pretty happy with her now. :hug:

Yay, always glad to help! I know how it is, sometimes the littlest idea from an outside source can make the biggest difference.

Nice job! I've never heard of this series, but you did a great job on the picture! And did you say that they are all exorcists? frankly, the dude in the front looks kind of like he NEEDS an exorcism...^^;

Great job, Dragonsong!

Haha! Yeah, Allen's been cursed and on three seperate occaisions (at least, there may be more I've forgotten) he's been mistaken for one of the demons they're exorcising. I'm guessing that'll be a plot point eventually, though it hasn't been expanded upon yet. ^^; Still, it makes him darned fun to draw! :D

Lol! Well, you have to give credit for a good ironic plot twist like that!

Hee! Well, in this particular world these excorcists fight demons, and in order to fight the demons, they must use a specific substance that seems to bond randomly to objects. Allen's bonded to his arm, Lavi's to a hammer, and Miranda's to a clock. Poor Krory's bonded to his teeth. So while he'll swear up and down and left and right that he's not a vampire, he kind of is, only he feeds on demons instead of people. Poor guy. :D

YAY for information you didn't need but I felt like sharing anyway! :D

On the picture itself, I knew when I drew it that if I couldn't make the extreme lighting work, this wouldn't be very interesting, so I put a lot of effort into the coloring. It seems to have paid off, at least I'm proud of the results! Thanks!
