I wanted to do a random drawing that spells "kickass"; for me, something that is awesome would be something unexpected coming from an equally unexpected source, and that's where the idea of a demon slaying school girl came to me.
Though the idea was not original, I still wanted to try something I've never done before (take notice, on all the artwork I've done, have I done a demon-slaying school girl? I have something close, but not this!)
After the idea, I thought of the posing and the most effective "epic" pose I could think of is a stand-off, and in a way of making the monster very mysterious and showing you guys the main attraction (our heroine) I decided to do a over-the- head/ shoulder shot from the demon's point of view.
Next came in the weapons. I wanted to keep her traditional, so I gave her a pair of lengthy katanas (original they were chainsaw, but I think that's for the next piece...)
Lately I've been doing a lot of these kind of art. It's either I''m lacking any ideas or i wanted to explore. Nevertheless, I will try improving!
