Stories in a Safe Haven by Lord-Kiyo Stories in a Safe Haven by Lord-Kiyo
This is a picture of a scene that happens in the book "Munoraku"  www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D… Its when a sandstorm blows in and they find this place to stay safe.  While they wait for the storm to pass, they exchange stories.  And its Kruda's turn

Kruda, "This Human was a persistent one.  He followed me deep into the woods in hope that I lead him right to our nest.  I passed by a big bolder and just hid behind it, and when the human passed by, I got him!"

Neolko, "What happened then?"

Kruda, "I took this blade and shoved it straight into his neck and gave it a good twist!  Then I skinned that human! I took his flesh off his body as revenge to what they did to my people, I found it fitting.  But I gave him the luxury of being dead before I skinned him."

I am rather happy with this one, I packed alot of detail that no one is going to appreciate.  I even have several bugs in there so you can have a glimpse of the Munoraku ecosystem.  And I hope the readers enjoy this one, please tell me everything you think about it :D

Hey, I remember this scene, yay! You've drawn Tuck's expression quite well. I would feel uncomfortable too, knowing that I had to sleep in a room with a Meask, who does not like humans very much and who is rather quick with his daggers. Nice details, btw. The things in the top right corner are speed riders, am I right?

Thanks :D  Actually just now I had an image in my head.  When Tuck is laying down facing towards the camera, supposed to be sleeping but has a wide eyed expression of worry.  while behind him is Kruda sitting up while keeping watch and is twirling his knife.

And yes, those are the speed riders.

Yeah, that's some stuff for a horror movie, lol. Reminds me of some creepypastas with a "i-know-that-you-are-awake"-endind/plot twist.

No really, next time you've a multiple character pic like this.
I would pay alot of moneys to have my little critter/fursona in it. (He could be in native/tribal outfit like that.)

Just food for thought.

Until then this is really awesome and keep up the wonderful artwork.

Could you please send me a note. Of Pricing and your thoughts..

I have two options/ideas I'm playing with right now.


1) Would be two characters.
I would like something with my fursona and one of those Tribal, Long, skinny male dragons.
(Heck you could ask Tito'ku/Bond2602
As I've just already got a commission with him before.)

PG or adult or whatever all okay.

Something like
lord-kiyo.deviantart.com/art/B…
lord-kiyo.deviantart.com/art/T…


2) Would be one Character (My fursona)
In light bondage.

(If you feel uncomfortable with that idea understandable, I could just get him in a tribal uniform
in a PG setting.) As for payment I can pay via Paypal if needed. :)

That Meask?  That is a completely different Meask, that's Kruda.  Racist. LOL  He not a jokester like the ones you are probably referring to.

I really love the lighting you did in this and all the details in the scenery turned out great! <333

If it's not too much trouble may I ask how you went about painting/ coloring the fire? ;u;

:iconlord-kiyo:
Lord-Kiyo Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2016
The fire is kinda a simple process but a few steps, and really my fire is so noob.  Well first take a dark red color and set your bush to soft.  then make some good sized dots.  Then change the brush a bit smaller change the brush style to screen and use a yellow color and dab it in the middle of the red dabs.  You should have some bright color in the center.  Then take you smudge tool and then change the brush of the smudge tool to Oil Heavy Flow, or any of the Oil brushes, and then use that to mix the colors a bit and then start making it swerving strokes up.  You will have to play with it and get used to it.

Does that help and did you understand?  Or would you need a visual tutorial?

Better than what I can do nonetheless xDDD And I did understand thank you ;u; I just got to utilize my different brushes and effects it seems really to help me out.  I won't make you go through the trouble of doing a visual tutorial, no worries ;;v;;
