Claymore Clarice And Miata To Battle by Nick-Ian Claymore Clarice And Miata To Battle by Nick-Ian
As promised, here is that other Claymore art work I planned on uploading, featuring *drum rolls* Clarice and Miata! My two other fave characters in the story.

Ugh. I actually want to redo some stuff in this painting - like making Clarice's face look less fierce, make her hands a tad smaller, adjust the size of Miata's head, omit the blue sky... Tsk. The sky most of all. Covering that big of a space with poster paint sure wasn't a good idea (especially when the drawing pad paper's not up to the task). But I wanted it to look more natural than just filling it up with a block color using Photoshop. Arg! Can't do much about the crinkles and the warping too... That's the downside to traditional art - no Layers to edit, no Undo button... *sigh*

Yet despite all that, I think I'm fine with the finished work. My fave part was doing Miata's hair. I love this duo - a mother and a baby. They're so sweet it makes me go "awwww..." (especially when Miata does that "thing" with Clarice).

Damn! Can't wait for the next chapter. Miata's AWAKENING!!!

I had swishy hair for a while, girls were jealous of me. It gets tangled easily so it's high maintenance.

Love this. Especially the way you capture the shine on the armor and the swords. Love Miata, Espically in her new awakened form. I have to say my favorite character from this is show thought is Teresa

Nick-Ian Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Of course! Who wouldn't like Teresa. I like her too! She's freaking awesome in her own right. I'm wondering what kind of monster she'll turn out if she awakened. The Org should've chosen her as one of the three resurrection candidates. Imagine the look on Clare's face if that happens.

That would have been too crazy. She would have made a badass awakened being! But i think she might have been far too powerful for their plan. Plus part of her body was put inside Clair so idk if a claymore's body can become awakened without a head.....can it?

I'm starting to be amazed that you immdiately associate armored girls with huge swords with Claymore. Never got into the series but this picture has piqued my curiosity. i'll let you know what i think of it ;)

Nick-Ian Featured By Owner Jul 5, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yes. the Claymore's attires and weapon are very iconic.

i actually started watching the anime before reading the manga. The anime was a bit of a disappointment since it didn't follow the manga and it kinda ended halfway (and i feel they're not doing a second season... or even to continue it... which is sad).

but the manga's ongoing and the story's getting really fun. the latest chapter was uploaded just today! WEEEE!!!

lol thats awesome dude. I read the first four chapters and i was impressed. its serious but so far i'm enjoying it. I was wondering why i had a french legion feel when i saw or ever thought of Claymore then it occurred to me my hunch may have been right after finding out the girl's name is Clair which is usually a common girl's name in france. the kills are pretty badass ;)

:iconnick-ian:
Nick-Ian Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
yeap. Clair's name is supposed to be have French origins or something. read that in the Claymore wiki. :D

you'll see a lot more dismembered bodies and decapitations later.:XD:

AceOfKeys72 Featured By Owner Jul 7, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
After seeing four chapters of it I shouldn't be surprised. And yes I should've thought so regarding French Origins. Their armor and design is also a dead give away especially if you look at french art and fashion ;)

thanks a lot! i just observed that in all the colored manga covers where Clarice is in it, she's always shown with an open mouth or shouting/gasping. So I went with the author's trend. :XD: hope i make him proud (not like he'll come across this pic ever...) :XD:

i doubt he'll come across any of these unfortunately. i have a ton of art but i doubt he'll ever see any of it. then again- if he did, he might run into this one. [link] wonder what he'd say then? :iconpinkiepieplz:

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Calrice and Maita!!! I really love Maita! She is sooo adorable. I really love what have done to Maita's hair. And the fact she is tame only with Clarice is what make it cuter XD (That girl is really violent. Those ripping body with bare hands.. whoa!)

I think you really did well with the background. The sky looks decent and I really love the details you put on the ground. Looks really realistic.

OMG I can't wait for the next piece!! ><

Miata is a freakin' beast! I think she's the only one who can kill Yoma with her bare hands. And when she was awakening, the other Claymores felt that her Yoki is similar to an Abyssal One. Like, OMG. But still she's SO cute! I like it when she just hugs Clarice and says "mama" repeatedly. Kawaii!!!

Ah! Next chapter please! August! Please come!!!
