Sorry for the repost, but I was completely unsatisfied with the old version I posted, so I went back and redid her entire color palette and did minor corrections to other things. (also new background)
The picture just feels "finished" to me now.
If it's one thing I learned though...
...I just don't like my pictures when I do softer colors.
The colors need LIFE!!
The old version had this kinda icy vibe to me, which sort of matches her color scheme, but... What I REALLY wanted to go for was this feel of "warmth" for her personality DESPITE that. So like... this warm-feeling picture, despite using colder colors, y'know? I feel like I succeeded, but let me know what you think.
Again, sorry for the repost, but I hope you'll agree with me in saying that it is an overall improvement over the original.
(If it's one thing I need to improve on though with coloring and I don't really think I totally got it here just yet, it's that I feel my colors can be too dark. I want it to feel like DAYLIGHT, y'know?)
Keiyari in human form with her pair of presently-unnamed energy-claw-...things.
(basic concept for her world: a fusion of technology and magic, wherein if she focuses magic into her gloves, they channel the energy into those golden things on her knuckles, which then sprout these blade/claw things which are essentially something akin to hardened energy)
Keiyari is a character Mittens meets along her travels in her story. She is essentially a creature akin to werewolves where her power waxes and wanes with the phase of the moon, and in times of no moon her people must resort to other means to protect themselves in the weaker times. Keiyari uses magic weapons~
