lol, Spice and wolf is currently my favorite anime... It's very well done! Perhaps the clothing is somewhat different time period, but she's a goddess, like it really matters... She'd probably live on to end up in those clothes eventually anyway, right? XD

But anyway, I could tell it was Holo without even looking at the name, which at the bare minimum is a good sign. That it is actually a good work of art, on the other hand, tells you that the artist (you, of course) are certainly skilled. Well done.

not really a godess, I would call her an oracle, gods don`t die on earth! they would be industructable. here is a godess I made Up here [link] I`m going to remake it soon. thanks

That, my friend, is not affirmed. It depends on what you CONSIDER a god. For instance, the Norse gods were perfectly kill-able... just difficult to kill. As a matter of fact, the story of the end of the world for Norse mythology STATES that the gods would all perish: Yet gods they still remained. A pagan goddess of the harvest? Perhaps she could die, perhaps she could not. It references a lack of ability for her TO die multiple times in the anime, and never actually states what the church would do if she were to be caught during the escapade involving Cheryl (unfortunately I have been unable to read the manga/light novel. That's on my list, though...) However, according to many mythologies, gods CAN BE KILLED, and as such, Holo CAN still be considered godly/divine.

It's less that than simple fact. I'm not saying Holo actually IS a god- she even states that she is not. I am simply stating that your reasoning for her not being a god is flawed. she specifically states "I am not so grand, not as a god. I am Holo, and Holo is all that I am." Which states that, in a way, you were right... just not for the correct reason.

I'm not... I'm just giving the statement of argumentative opinion. If it seems as though I was upset, I apologize. I did not mean to come across in such a manner. I simply enjoy a good debate on occasion. I blame my AP Language and Composition class.

Don't mention it. I give credit where it is due, and it is certainly due to this.

Have you considered trying the acrylic tool in an actual colouring session? Could look pretty sweet. If you try it out and it doesn't work, at least upload it as a scrap. >:P

Well I tried it on the background here =P

I don't think it'd work out very well for the actual coloring though
I kinda tried something similar to it waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay way back [link] hahahah, so long ago
but yeah it turned out kinda weirdish

I like it. Since that's close to four years old now, I bet the time you've spent developing skills would probably make stuff like that look better when coloured differently from what you do now.

You're fine. Compare your stuff to your average artist on deviantart (or even those crappy drawings I showed you) and you'll realise you're miles ahead.

nice interpretation. though, it's missing one thing: a devious smile. Holo was known to have a devious smile across her face. >:D

Hehe, not all the time though; perhaps this time she was caught by surprise eating an apple that wasn't hers? XD
Perhaps the next one can have a devious smile >:3

even when she is eating an apple that's not hers, she still wears a devious smile. i've watched the show and read the manga. at first, she didn't care who the apple belonged to, she would grab it. :XD: talk about sneaky! lol. that's why i say she would have a devious smile across her face. the only person she get surprised by is Lawrence.
