After some interesting talk about colors the other day I thought I'd try some different shades of pink for Ixis's new eye gradient, and actually came to really enjoy the look of this brighter shade!
(Forgive me for making things less purple, RedJive!)

Then again now the red might be too meager for my taste. I might shift the gradient a bit more in the future.

@Seven Rain: Awwww. Although, from what I saw with the Post-Rosen's Awakening strips, it seems the general idea is that Rosen is affecting Ixis' aura (and eyes) by leaking pink? It's still a cool effect anyways. Oh well, guess Ixis isn't Cadian anymore. RIP.

whoops almost forgot

This was one of those things I mentioned earlier, when I said sometimes it felt pink and others purple, in this particular instance (even in previous strips) it looked like pink, because of reasons stated in my previous comment. After taking a more thorough look at it, I do like this a lot. It really does a good job of signifying that Rosen is still awake, and merely lurking beneath the surface. (As I said, also above, I'm making the assumption that Rosen is pink themed, and that's why Ixis' eyes are more pink now than red.) I need to stop monologuing and criticizing artwork as if I know how to do it myself.

@Redjive: Your analysis is spot-on. Ixis's eye color change is due to Rosen's awakening, and it is indeed pink-themed.

And don't feel the need to stop speaking your mind about stuff, I try to heed criticism as much as I can, and I wouldn't call your talk of colors critical, really, just another perspective. One that got me experimenting and helped me find a small color shift I enjoyed!

(And there's gonna be plenty of WOE and EthereaVerse in the future and plenty of characters with auras you'll find pleasing, I'm sure!)

Lots of interesting info coming out here!

And yet the bit that sticks out to me is how round Lowel's eyes have gotten over time, haha. He remains one of my faves, I think, so maybe that's why it popped out to me a bit more (if I'm not imagining it, that is, ehe)...

Either way, it's always neat to see how an artist's style evolves~ It's (And I'm glad to see more lowel, haha~!)

(edit; i was equally curious about whether the pink in ixis' eyes was due to rosen, neat to see it confirmed hehe~
edit2; I think it's that Lowel looks a tad.. younger... ?? than before. Hm. Either way, full steam ahead!!

@Captain Ghost: It doesn't help that I struggle to maintain consistency with my characters, and Lowel happens to be one I struggle with the most. (Part of that is his wonky hair design.)

He is supposed to look a bit younger than the other knights, though. He's around Reina's age and is the youngest of the elite knights.

I totally feel ya there ^^;
I haven't regularly comicked in ages but consistency was always a right pain, if memory serves xP I'm sure it'll come though!
(and then there is the aforementioned art evolution, plus certain characters not always showing up as much, especially with broad casts -- I think you're doing quite all right, everything considered! c:
