Where is it? by Absolute-Sero Where is it? by Absolute-Sero
It is, actually, in fact....... BEHIND YOU.

:3

Nia (left) and Val (right) featured. Your halloween suggestions put to use (since about half of poll-voters wanted something "creepy").
I am fairly confident that the reference here (I didn't actually try to mimic the game - just hint at it) should be fairly obvious if you've played the game.. whether by hints or if this ever happened to you. ;D (No the creeper is not based off of any particular monster.. just my own imagination.) Nia.. probably wouldn't be wearing a skirt that short. But at least I got the chance to draw her in one. 8D
Dammit.. Val, find the gun already! >__>

Been a long time since I used so much ink in one go. I realized too late Val was on the wrong plane given the perspective.. of course I'd already inked and pencilled most of this. Booo! Oh well. >__>
Guessed time: 5-6 hours start-to-finish. Mechanical pencil and several different width pens used.

Soooorta wish I'd gone fancier with this so as to make it look better.. but I wanted to stick with essentially all traditional work this time. To prove I still could somewhat. It was either all-traditional or all digital, really. And guess what? I don't have SAI or Photoshop on this computer yet. So that settled it. I'll do better with the upcoming series. ♥

Have a good Halloween!

Val Rivers/Nia Lau (c) myself (genji-rose)

Unfortunately not, all I've ever played is Mario Kart :D
It's not really the same, I'll wager XD

It's worth playing ;D Play Silent Hill 2 first, as it's the best in the series really.. IMHO. ♥

Well, for that I would have to buy a console or something... That's probably not going to happen...
But if I ever get the chance, I will! :D

Gawd, this looks amazing. I love Nia's face and your level of facial detail. Not to mention the poses are totally awesome and the monster in the background is freaking creepy. <3333

I can't remember what I said/when I said it was so...
*ominous silence* (Besides, on the off-chance that you get to replying you'll undoubtedly see for yourself.. faster if you get the twins involved somehow on your side. >D)

I wasn't entirely happy with how the faces turned out (especially Nia's.. ) or the poses but I settled with what I could. XD
The monster.. was supposed to be more subtle so that when you looked past Val it should have jumped out for "OMGNOLOOKBEHINDYOU" sort of effect. But. I couldn't make it blend in anymore. DDDDDD:

I seeeeeeee xD It is an awesome game. Be sure to play it after midnight, with all the lights in the house off on Halloween when you play it yourself. :D
