Heeeeeey! It's Kuri! Well it's only been nearly 2 years since I drew this bad boy. I really love this character. Obviously since he's one of the oldest character I've ever had that I still draw.
There have been some changes to his appearance since last I drew him:
I personally think he looks a lot better now.
For one his markings changed color. I have never drawn him WITHOUT the markings, but I've always known that they are not actually always
present. They actually only show when he is using his balancing abilities to make those orbs float and whatnot. If he's just sitting around or sleeping or whatever, they don't show.
I changed them to blue simply because it made more sense. They're supposed to be a sign of his powers, and his eyes and orbs are both that highlighter blue color, so why should his markings be any different? That and they glow now, which also helps show that they're the effect of magic.
Oh and I guess Kuri likes to rave, lol.
He's kind of a dance master of balance, so I figure it would be right up his ally. Not to mention I don't have ANY characters like this and man, glowy stuff is so fun to draw! haha.
I had a little help with the orbs from this free orb PSD. I found here:
Thanks for the help stranger! :]
This is one of those "Omg I put everything I could into this piece and am so proud of it" pictures, so any comments, suggestions, crits, questions are much appreciated.
Kuri's character is still pretty mysterious, even though I have a lot of story made up for him, but if you're curious, I did write a little blurb on him here: [link]
