Anyhow, some people may know me from Nolani as Ravenhawk and Deviantart as roguemina/Mina. I know I am just adding to the confusion by naming myself Viatrix here but..yeah it happened to be my thief's name in Guild Wars 2 (who is actually also my OC Mina/Raven's new alias..so it works!)
Brain dead/confused yet? I hope not. lol. Anyhow on to the art.
DA Website: http://roguemina.deviantart.com
Quick Info: My art hobby officially kicked off last 2010 with the main goal of turning my guild's GW1 RP storyline (the bits that are independent of the GW lore) into a graphic novel someday. Although I've been doodling since I was a kid (with 2003-2009 hiatus), my drawing skills are far from how I want the graphic novel to look like art-wise. So my learning started from there.
Quick shout out to peeps at GWGuru Nolani for helping me out/supporting me either through commissions or helpful critiques with my workshop entries in the past. Much love to you guys/gals.

I apologize for the possible mix up but I do remember you from Nolani as well. Great to see you here!
EDIT - I remember now! You got that awesome mesmer commission right? I forget who the artist was lol. And yeah I feel so stupid for not even remembering. Also we did an art trade before.

Gumboots and Ayelykepi, nice to meet you both! And thank you
I always thought I screw up with hair honestly but sure I'll try to help. Basically, you treat hair as a whole initially with a big brush following the flow of the hair strands working into smaller brushes and then add highlights (esp on where the source of the light is). Not sure if that's the correct way but that's how I generally do it ^^
I guess the best example of this is my latest sketch actually (my GW2 Warrior who I haven't leveled yet. He's based from an original story with my guild and my Guild Wars 1 Ranger) . Will finish this someday after I am done with a commission then maybe open a sketch commission like this for like 50s to 1g? *needs more gw2 gold*

Beautiful works as always. I still haven't completely explored your DA page, there's so much cool stuff there.
And you also pretty miffed that Deviant Art doesn't let us change our names?
Posted 23 October 2012 - 05:26 AM
Aaaand a side note: are you interested in joining the Wintersday calendar? Not sure if you've noticed the thread, but I'd love to have you along! Even a sketch would be awesome, though I do understand if you're too busy or not interested. Just wanted to ask.
Posted 24 October 2012 - 05:54 PM
Perynne, I posted on your Wintersday project and sure I'll do it! You said a sketch is fine too but I'll try to make an art that looks better than a sketch if time permits it. But yeah count me in. I am honored for the invite!
I'm glad you still remember Ran. I still gush over the artwork and the comic strip you made!:
[Perynne's awesome Art]
[/Perynne's awesome Art]
Thing is, I haven't rolled him in GW2 yet so there's still a chance he'd end up as a ranger. I just figured warrior because of how his story progressed though so far, I haven't found a plate armor appealing enough for him (not that I am looking >_>)
Speaking of Ran, I polished the sketch a bit more a couple of days ago. Still a WIP. I just work on it whenever I can slip some free time between gw2 and the current commish I am working on:

... I made Mara in GW2. As a norn ranger. Same dirty personality though. Oh, and when you get around to rolling Ran in GW2, I want screenshots!
I love seeing WIPs, it's always amazing to see a picture change shape into a finished artwork. <3
Posted 07 November 2012 - 03:30 PM
*Squeals and runs around in circles* That would be awesome! Your rendition of Ran is hands-down one of my faves!
Oh I'm glad you kept Mara's persona in GW2! I made an attempt to make him in Beta and might stick to this general look. I kinda miss his old GW1 hairstyle though:
Small update! Kinda slow with art because of RL, guild rp activities and guild wars 2. But I am working on a commission for a friend atm. Looking to finish it this weekend. Here's a WIP teaser:
Also, contemplating on a 'pay-whatever-price-you-want' (in gw2 money) sketch commish after this while working on Perynne's GW2 Wintersday Calendar. Just not sure if anyone is gonna be interested lol

also, loving the new piece, the muted colours are great and it's so cool to see a full background!
Posted 07 November 2012 - 05:44 PM
The Wintersday calendar! Thanks for reminding me about that. I need to cut into my GW2 time and start doing drawings again.

Aw, Ran looks awesome as a GW2 version. I like his old hairstyle better too, since having it back would keep it out of his eyes while fighting and stuff, but that hairstyle isn't too bad. Makes him look more brooding: tall, dark, handsome with extra brood!
No long history, sorry. Just some random silliness between Viatrix's GW1 character and my D&D character, and us wondering what would happen if they were ever to meet. Their personalities are so different that it would be hilarious.
Posted 12 November 2012 - 03:31 PM
Gonna take a break from the high-end commission projects for a bit. I'm at a point where I want to experiment again and (hopefully) take things to the next level. I'll work on Perynne's wintersday Calendar next and the 'pay-what-you-want (in gw2 currency)' sketches.
My sketches usually look like this (and not pencil-sketch looking). I'll come up with more recent samples though.
Oh and here's the completed commission.
lol! I hear Mara talking! Considering what happened in GW1, his GW2 version (my guildies continue our stories from GW1 and our guild lore made it convenient for us to find a way to have an explanation for the 250 year gap.) will be a little more rough around the edges. Still the same Ran we all love and hate though.
Yep! That's exactly it Ran was conceptualized during the time when I was an anime fangirl. So he's got the cliche dark, mysterious, brooding persona surrounding him. He hasn't outgrown that cliche persona I gave him but with the RPs and his story more fleshed out, it makes more sense now and, oddly enough, I haven't heard anyone complaining (ICly though he's pissed off some people big time)
Gonna end this here before I ramble on spoiling my comic (that I haven't worked on in months lol)

hmm... I'd probably be smarting over Vale more than Ran... but then he looks kinda similar to Elyott so I *might* be biased XD
ANYWAY. MORE ART PLS
Posted 12 November 2012 - 07:35 PM
D'oh! Good point about the shadow, Morag lol.
So..we got Morag for Vale (Seen your Elyott drawings and I see why!) and Perynne for Ran lol. Eh, been wanting to make a Ran vs Vale artwork for so long! It's been lingering in my head..someday..I shall.
Speaking of which, I mentioned about my horrible chibi drawing skills in the CC Thread. And this is the only Ran vs Vale pic that I did..not sure when was this. Sometime in 2010 for sure:
L-R Mina, Ran, Sylas, Vale, Phoenix and Waffle accidentally summoning a portal monster from another dimension. Typical day in Eon lol.
Seeing them normally in the comic version (chibi above is their GW1 version), they should look like this (chibi sketch is without Dani- the girl in pink at the top)
Oh and Waffle is in the comic too lol

Posted 13 November 2012 - 05:51 PM
lol I can totally see this happening. I love these cross over OC stuff. (Yes looking at you Perynne for introducing me to the idea =P)
Oh I also started the commish thread here with one new artwork:

@Viatrix: You're welcome! And such cute chibis!
Posted 16 November 2012 - 02:43 PM
lol I doubt Ran and Vale are going to get ice cream. They are more than likely to join the argument. (Yes, they have each other that much lol) The only reason one of them hadn't lost a limb or two was me rarely RPing Ran when Vale's character is around lol.
okay someone DID lose a limb but it was neither of them..just someone who got involved in the fight between them. To be more specific, Ran cut her arm and threatened to torture her for information, Vale then put her out of her misery out of mercy (or maybe just to spite Ran. Who knows!).
*sigh* I need to get back into comic making. So many things to draw, so little time.
