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).

Oh it's in stories. I decided not to draw too much due to lack of time.
