Blade Under Mask: The Muse In The Rain by White-Mantis

A little gift featuring Nae and rashkah’s Blade Under Mask character, Yasuo, the street poet in a little side-story. Somewhat of a continuation from this pic.

I was a little scared to email you so I'll ask here first: Where did you get the inspiration and idea for Blade Under Mask? I heard it's a comic but I'm not exactly sure what it's really about. The art and captions were interesting enough to keep me interested though. You really have an amazing talent.

Thank you very much for your kind words!

I get asked this question a lot, so I’m going to reply it again. ^^

Blade Under Mask is going to be a comic/graphic novel. I’m currently working on the script, with the help of Marcotonio-desu. We post a lot of teasers, but the script is its final stages, so we hope to get started on the comic soon!

How tall is nae?

Playing a bit with Sayaka’s outfit. I think I will be changing it soon, I’m not really liking the previous (hakama). The hat is missing here, but it’s still present in the design!

Blade Under Mask: ”One Day…” by White-Mantis

"…I will be a geisha, beautiful and elegant in a rich kimono, and then Asami will be nice to us!"

Daydreaming children!

Because WhiteMantis is super cool, I drew Nae.

OH MAN LOOK AT THIS *SCREAM*

SO BEAUTIFUL Ç-Ç I love the hairstyle <3

Karasu by White-Mantis

Jisuk’s amazing tengu character, Shichi, from his novel “Karasu”. His art is amazing and really inspiring, so please take a look at his gallery!

mordwyl:

I’ll draw two bug girls interact, I said.
It’ll be easy, I said.

You can tell I haven’t drawn insect anthros in forever. Someone's Nae and my Thalia (formerly Antalya) having an insightful chat. What is it about?* I guess we'll find out if I get around to continuing it.

Every time I see Mantis’s work I’m humbled. Go check her out if you haven’t already! ;n;


* Probably fashion sense. And boys.

OH MAN look at those cute bug girls! <3

椿 Tsubaki (Red Camellia) - These flowers fall to the ground intact, rather than petal by petal. They represent love, and perishing with grace.

This is a gift for the very sweet and talented whitemantis, of her lovely maiko Nae. I adore this character’s design! Please take a look at her project, Blade Under Mask.

HHHHHHHHHHGNNNNNNNN this is so beautiful, Jisuk. I love LOVE LOVE the association you made with the red camellia, I think it fits so well. 

Listen everyone, you all should seriously take a look at Jisuk’s gallery and novels. It’s just AMAZING.

tcs1992:

So yesterday I got a SERIOUS problem with my computer and  that made me to draw her without references, I bet there’s a BUNCH of mistakes here, but I like this came out so beautiful… Nae is beautiful and that helps a lot 

but lets hail WhiteMantis!!!! Happy B-day girl! 

Hope you like ! <3

HOW COME I DIDN’T SEE IT EARLIER AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA BABBU

chirasul:

Birthday art for WhiteMantis!!

Whitemantis has been an incredible artistic influence and a good friend for a long time now; her encouragement has helped push me to being the artist I am now! Whatever that’s worth.

Medium: a bunch of stuff on paper

Nae how did you get there?

Beautiful, clumsy nurse Nae.

I’m going to self-harm just to be treated by her. AHA
