Hearts of Stone by Aroihkin Hearts of Stone by Aroihkin
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

Full view should go without saying. If you don’t full view peoples’ stuff on DeviantArt, you just... um... don’t rock my socks. Oooh, scary! Also, sorry in advance to anyone who has me on Watch. I tend to decide things need to be tweaked, and edit like a maniac. Many times. Never happy, that’s me!

I think I might have to write a crossover fanfic someday, by this name, just so that it’s poster looks will be justified. Wow, what a screwed up plot that would have to be... *eyes glaze over* ...um, I mean, woah--who would be that dumb? *sweatdrops, laughs nervously*

Yeah, you’re right. Expect to see one from me eventually. >_>

100% MS Paint. Yes, even the bloody gradient background. It’s possible, it’s hand drawn, please don’t comment with “OMG YOU CAN’T HAVE DONE THAT IN PAINT!!?!” even in jest. I get so sick of that. It’s a 2 shade difference, so it -is- visibly hand drawn if you look close enough.

About 18 hours, guestimated. There were a few long chunks there where I forgot to glance at the clock before starting, and only remembered after I’d closed Paint. Oops.

The theme comes from the fact that both characters have, well, rocks for life sources. Ramirez has the Silver Crystal in his hand, and the Phantom Ranger has the Power Ruby in his chest, which he can take out when necessary without keeling over dead right away. Hooray for vague similarities?

And it amuses me greatly that Ramirez is positively colorful when put next to Phantom.

Progress: Sketch 1, Sketch 2, Sketch 3, Color 1, Color 2.

Original Image Description from my LiveJournal:

Phantom standing back to back with Ramirez from SoA, with something ironic like "hearts of stone" written across on it. [...though "heart" really isn't the proper term for either, "life source" just isn't poetic enough.] It'll be fun doing the lighting for that second picture, with silver coming from Rami's hand and red coming from Phantom's [I'll have him holding his Ruby in his left hand]. Dramatic. :D

---

The Phantom Ranger (left) belongs to Saban, he’s from Power Rangers Turbo, and Power Rangers in Space. He’s originally from Super Sentai Carranger, if you want to get really technical about it, where he was known as VRV Master, the "Lone Wolf of Space". There’s only one other fan art of him in my gallery so far.

Ramirez (right) belongs to Sega, he’s from Skies of Arcadia / Legends. There’s lots of him to be found in my gallery. And fanfics to be found linked from my DeviantArt journal. And RP logs. And... and... *gibber* and... uh... well. Lots of Rami stuff.

Wow. Damn. *_* Okay, you totally win at MS Paint, although I suppose you already knew that.
I mean, hell, I use Photoshop, because I suck ass at picking colors in Paint.

Just... damn.

Thanks! I draw lots of Ramirez, I'm even (very very slowly) making cosplay gear of him, so I've had to study his uniform a bit. ^^
