Claymore - Riful Delighted To See You by Nick-Ian Claymore - Riful Delighted To See You by Nick-Ian
I'm not sure if I'm happy with how this painting ended up. It... Just isn't how I had imagined it in my head. Also, somebody else already thought of a similar idea to this. Found that fan art after Googling Riful's images. Should've Googled first before putting to paper what idea my mind has come up. Too late though. But I still made it look unique and unmistakably MINE. (Claymore and its characters don't belong to me by the way, this is a fan art. :D)

Actually, the picture that inspired me to draw this is this particular page from the manga - [link]

Damn! Riful is so awesum! :D She's so cute! But freaky! That's exactly what I wanted to convey here, mixing sweet/innocent with maniacal lunacy and sadism! :XD:

I actually tried to mimick how the author (Norihiro Yagi) colors the characters - especially the nose!

By the way, did Riful just die??? :cries:

that's the third request now. :XD: a lot of Claymore fans sure love Ophelia. :D I like that part when Clare was shocked to see her and uttered "A... An Awakened Being!" and then Ophelia is like, "Where? Where?". LOL!

Gotta think of a nice picture idea for her. *goes to drawing table*

Kind of reminds me of the old, but awesome, Parasyte manga.

If you want a hard copy, they still sell the whole series on Amazon & most book stores.

Holy sblounskched, that expression is really creeping me out. :stare: That freaky thing that's happening to her head isn't exactly helping, either. :stare:
But seriously, awesome. :D

thanks a lot! yeah, she's way creepy. in the manga she keeps on torturing others characters - horribly! like cutting limbs and impaling rods into their bodies. *shudder* but she does have her cute moments. i think.

great picture!
im sad that the anime didn't follow along very well with the manga, I wish they'd redo it like they did with full metal alchemist and then we'd be able to see riful in all her animated glory but tis only wishful thinking on my part ;_;

yeah im not too sure about her dying but the thing fighting priscilla in the current chapters is like riful and dauf's child...sorta...its got both their abilities so maybe they fused or something...still so many questions to answer >_<

yeah she was one badarse and I would of believe she could of been a good ally if she wasnt so as you said Maniacl lunacy and sadism

as to your question of death there is a chance she might of survived...though we do see the body but there is another form right now that is fighting persilla that looks quite like riful but has that one dudes ability with spikes coming out of the mouth thing so I am thinking of like a daugther that was born from both their powers? *shurgs* still lots of things unsaid
