Lucy: Beyond Self by Snowfyre Lucy: Beyond Self by Snowfyre



Was all this blood
on my hands
worth it?

Was there any other way?
I don't want to fight,
I don't want to hurt anyone.
I just want to live peacefully,
with all my friends.

But is this my fate?
That I will never escape fighting?
That the blood on my hands
stays forever as due to my race?

For that they said I protect
those that I care,
with the raw power that I wield
beyond my control.


I am afraid of it,
I fear for them,
Shall I live alone for their safety?

Or shall I stay with the warmth
of my friends,
and live in fear
that this rage may someday consume
those I tried hard to protect?



---> Torn page from Lucy's diary.

_____________________________________


Lucy's info:


Is she still the same sweet girl that we know?
--> extract from Kazeerah's diary, Unknown page



One of Lucy's darker secrets is that she can go berserk. Although she normally is a very poor fighter and can't use any of the moves that a normal Lucario can use (e.g. Aura sphere), she seems to change dramatically from her usual self when she goes berserk.

From witnesses who have seen this rare event, when she goes berserk, Lucy fur and attire will suddenly change to a shiny Lucario's colour.

When berserk, she seems to be able to use skills and moves that she normally is not able to use. She also seems to attack wildly with little care for her own or her own friends safety.

It seems that this ability is triggered subconsciously by a massive fear of the death of her friends. For an unknown reason, she does not go berserk even if her own life is in danger, but she seems to do so if those she cares about are in mortal danger.


She reverts back to her original (non-shiny) colours when she runs out of energy or if her friends can somehow persuade her that the danger is over. She normally faints afterwards.




In her shiny form when going berserk, she seems to generate a visible dark aura. Also the power of any abilities she uses seems to be significantly increased in power (Way beyond that of a normal Lucario) and seems to be tinted with shadow energy. However if she does have innate shadow energy, the implications could mean that she may have an even darker secret than this ability of hers.

BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!!!! :evillaugh:

Ok, this one was brewing for a while.


Techniques used:
1) Shift-pencil lineart tech.
2) Experimental shading technique using layers and smudge.
3) Fur tech
4) Experimental blood techs.

Flames were kinda haphazard I think. Not exactly sure how to detail it much, also kinda lazy....... :rofl:
Was dedicating more time to testing a new shading technique using layers instead of my usual burn or black-layering techs.


So yes, advance critique.... for the art.

Not mature cat cause I think that the blood isn't the main focus of the pic.


And yes, Lucy's a Lucario, a pokemon.

Alright I have been going through your art recently and I just now noticed that even though you have made a dark form for Lucy there is nothing that proves how destructive she is...... I mean sure you have a few pics here and there but nothing that shows like how destructive Lucy is in battle for all we know she could still be weaker than a magicarp and this is all in her mind........Also sorry for any misspells in this (I am no good at writing).

You do not know how much this makes me think of that iconic scene of Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7, where he's walking through the burning wreckage of Nibelheim.

Very well done though!

Careful, don't get killed by her...... not sure how she reacts when she goes berserk. It's almost like she's completely different.



Well, was trying to make some sort of effects that makes the power feel real, scary and something you never expect from that girl.

Fire was done using brush and smudge tools (my favourite smudge tools :XD: )..... and a total of 2 layers (only)

Though still working bit on how to make it seem more natural (colour-wise... kinda happy bout the shaping thouhg )

Thanks much. Fire was using experimental technique. Posing was kinda hard to get right ( I actually had to walk around my room a bit to observe poses.)

Also thanks for the fav. Much appreciated.

The flames effect was a bit experimental. Was trying to create a certain look of very raw power.

If you're interested in her, there's bits of info scattered around in various deviations she appears in in my gallery.

Hmm, interesting.

Overall I think this looks pretty good, have an intense looking scene with a lot going on.
Overall I think it looks good, though to me it's hard to see some of the shading details you mentioned. Still, the overall look and the details look pretty good I think. Overall, very nice work.

Thanks.

Well, guess you're right bout one thing. The shading generated is not much different from the old style of shading.

Used 2 layers of shading and 1 highlight using layers instead of the usual burn techniques to give a little more control over the colour and the precision.
But guess end product's not much different :XD:
