Just noticed something now....the girl/Ligi....has small wings. Were those originally there?

Also, "Ligi" is an actual name. I have an online friend who has or had a grandmother by that name. It's Samoan.

It's not all that difficult to do shading like this (in SAI and Photoshop at least). Have a layer of flat colors, and then a multiply layer above with the shade colors of your choice. (extra layer above the shades for lighting if needed)
I guess in time you learn what to shade and what not to?

Well either way, thank you very much!

Shame the dev team for Kid Icarus: Uprising has no intention of making a sequel for the time being, because it would be kind of nice to see that girl's role expanded.

I'm not to torn up about the idea of no sequel right away. I have pretty unpopular opinions about what the game did right and what the game did wrong XD

Rather than a sequel, I'll take a WiiU port with additional side chapters and fixed/missing plot issues! Even then though, it's a huge stretch of '90% not happening'

The torso would be really hard to get a correctly-measured view, since he has the scarf covering it up as well as the foldings of the tunic, but I think you did a great job. And maybe the legs and feet look too long, but in my opinion it must be because you drew Pit's hands a bit small than the usual giant-cartoony ones he's depicted.
I still say you did a great job on it. =) And it's really nice to see you always try different poses and perspectives.

noooo...I didn't write stuff about the dog either...

That Pit kind of talks to it and treats it like it's a Centurion, giving it orders on patrolling the town and it just kind of looks at him with his head sideways for a bit before running in a circle trying catch it's tail.

I write like 10 different head canon stories...and then can't decide which one I like best...
Yeah in one, it's not so much Magnus adopts the dog, but the dog adopts Magnus and then won't leave him alone. Then you have a Magnus scene were he's making monster noises flailing his arms trying to scare it away and it just falls on it's side like 'rub mah belly'

oh gosh...I have a problem...

I also have a few in which he's teaching her to shoot his bows~

Kind of how I think Pit would be like in these situations...like...the only 'play' he knows is going out on missions, killing monsters and training. It's probably more like training than playing really. Maybe he's trying to make her strong?

Or maybe he has full confidence that she won't do anything bad with it?

Or he's just irresponsible and doesn't quite get how dangerous they are...
One of those

Or perhaps humans are unable to use magic weapons, and that is essentially a heavy stick in her hands.  Either way, I'd still draw the line with the Knuckle Staff.

Lady-of-Link Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, in Greek myths, humans can technically use the gods powers on tools they find all the time! I figure the same thing works with Kid Icarus since Pit was expressing worries about what would happen if humans got their hands on the canon type weapons technology!
and what the heck are light vs dark fighters then? I thought they were human since they don't have the same strength as heavenly creatures(angels)...

but that's just my opinion, everyone has their own thoughts and head canon about what they think on this kind of thing. I like the idea of Pit being so casual with humans sometimes, especially that little girl. I think I might line and color the one of him teaching her to shoot even.

JMHomon Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Actually, I think that only applied to demigods, but I could be wrong.  And the Light vs. Dark fighters could also be nymphs, kind of what I picture Phosphora and Arlon to be, which would allow them to use magic weapons and powers. 

And I'm not arguing against Pit's attitude toward humans; I agree with it actually.  I'm just saying that it wouldn't have been my idea to give a dangerous weapon to a little kid and say, "here, go play."

Lady-of-Link Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh no, not just children of gods, in many MANY stories in Greek myths regular humans used weapons and tools that had godly powers!(of course with their permission(sometimes)) Sometime the tool was a gift to a devoted worshipers, but most of the time they had to quest to find the tool to prove their worth and they would use it responsible.
(odd how dyntos put Pit throught the human test rather than trust a heavenly warrior! Then again.. odd for the 'Athena' to ask the 'Hephaestous' for help...just don't invit him over Pit!)

nymphs are usually young nature based females and sexual so for Arlon to be one is WAY out of the normal definition, though yes, Phosphora fits perfectly.
Same goes for the Light and Dark fighters, I don't see them being nymphs either, none of them ever actually show they have thier own powers, just the ones bestowed on them, but it sure is an interesting head canon you have for them!

Arlon might be following the version that moons are humans/creatures made immortal by the god they orbit. Like how Zues/Jupiter turned his lovers into the moons to protect them from Hera(odd that one is an animal...oh that Zeus!) Maybe Arlon was one???
It was tradition in the time for 'houses' of a specific god to hold games and compete for the honor of their gods name! (well now, this sounds familiar...Olympics!!) Yes one of the games was a fighting arena. I feel this is the inspiration for light vs dark fighters?

but those are just my thoughts of course!!! If you are happy with your headcanon. then great! Sorry I got carried away...I studied Greek mythology for a loooong time and NEVER get to use this information stuck in my head

See you would be one of those responsible gods then XD Not a lot of them existed in those stories! Not all of them liked or trusted humans to hold things they created.

Like I said, I could have been wrong on that count.  My major isn't exactly Greek Mythology, but I do have a general grasp on some of the stories.  Now that I think about it, The Bacchae might be an example of that.  (And I think Dyntos was just bored, alone in his little world.  That's why he decided to test Pit.  [Though, in reality, it's probably more of a reference to the original Kid Icarus game.])

I say "nymph" because that's the closest example I can use to describe it.  "Nature spirit" is technically a little more accurate (kind of like calling Magnus a mercenary versus a bounty hunter).  But truth be told, I never gave much thought about the fighters before; it was just an observation.  Another thought would be that they might be just another type of Centurion, just without the winged helmets.

I might be a little more inclined to believe that comparison if the Lunar Sanctum was an actual moon and if Arlon ran on its power rather than the other way around.  But since that's not the case, then Arlen must have come before the Lunar Sanctum was created.  If so, what would that make him before it existed?

Sorry, I think I might have let my headcanons get ahead of me.  I tend to have quite a few that might fly in the face of the original myths.  (For instance, I believe that the god in Kid Icarus [with the exception of Hades and, to a lesser extent, Dyntos] are not really immortal; they just have a longer lifespan than humans and angels, aging about one year for every thirty or so human years.).

And if you spent so much time learning these stories, I have a feeling you'll get along really well with my sister.  You might want to say hi.
