Rika the Nightmare by Kerikaza Rika the Nightmare by Kerikaza
I was not happy with the old Rika drawing, and since I had some new+older ideas wanted to try out, I decided to redraw the whole thing.

This was finished a week ago but I didn't have enough time to submit it to groups, so I decided to upload it today |||OTL

This image has instantly made me a fan of this character. I've seen and added to favorites two of your older drawings of Rika--including the one that this is a remake of--but I never really thought they were special.
The improvement you've made from the last version of this drawing is just astonishing! I noticed a few things:
* You added a feather ordainment in her hair, I really like that.
* The chains and cuffs fit perfectly; it gives her more of that dark feel.
* Her tattoos are more visible which is a huge plus.
* The lighting is better for the theme/mood I think you were aiming for.
* Just the way you drew her hair this time seems to be better, though I can't place my finger on why exactly.
* Finally, let me point out that I particularly like the new environment (background) she is in. The flowers she was around before was a lot different than the dried cracked ground and blood stains I see now. It's a good change.

All in all, great re-draw!

You, sir, are awesome
I love the image, simply loved it, the shadows, the colors, everything!
The purple in the image really caught my eyes, being a really mysterious color for me.
The shades really helped the mysterious feeling I felt looking at this picture
The eyes, oh, the eyes, I was staring at them for like... 10 minutes... the way you made them is perfect, the color change from top to bottom, oh my!
In other words: Perfect work, I made this account just to comment on it and favorite it.
I, now, deify you.
Cheers from Brazil.
You are awesome.

Great work. Love her hair, espesially the shine and colour as well as the slight curls in the ends of her hair. The lighting is great and the colour choices you've made are brilliant. Great detailed work on the chains, nail and the ground. love the tattoo and her expression :D
