HERO :: Gnat by Cruzle HERO :: Gnat by Cruzle
My entry for The World Ends With You contest.

Hero :: Natalie aka "Gnat"

Natalie, otherwise known as "Gnat," is a street musician who totes her "Flying V" with pride. The unusual body of her violin gives it a unique sound. Paired with her self-composed amalgam of modern rock, hip-hop, and the classics, Gnat's performances are a sight to behold.

She defeats the Noise by utilizing the resonance of the notes she plays. (Ironic as that may be |D )

Awesome character design! I love the design of the violin!! I love the way she's drawn too, looks like she could appear in a Saturday morning cartoon.

BTW, have you seen the manga, the Violinist of Hamlin? Might be something you would enjoy :D

Thanks! And NO, you have not lost your ability. You just stopped and angst too much. D< Read the wannabe-tutorial I made. Art isn't about being automatically awesome - you gotta WORK for it! And if you believe you can, then you can!

Oh, yay, thank you. *_* I struggled with the colors with a while because I was determined she have sort of purpleish hair and red shoes, but at their brightest, those colors don't... always look so hot together. |D

Thanks!

Thank you! It's supposed to be a guitar clip-shaped hair pin, but I don't know if I got it across. Even if I didn't, hopefully it still works. *_*b

PS. GO TO DISNEYLAND SO I CAN COME TOO. <33333 IF YOU GO CRUZLE GOES
