The New Queen by Soji-chan The New Queen by Soji-chan
Queen of the Kingdom of Tonalli! Drew this drawing Saturday. To do the colour took me twos entires days... even a little bit more XD.

I'm really proud of it.

I adore drawing characters form Tonalli. The cultural context please me very much and is so fun to design. So colourful too. Clothing and architectural influences come mainly for Aztecs, Mayas, Indonesian , Indian and Kyushu Island culture.

Really, a delight to design, draw and colour

By the way, Gentile is :iconlika-siruka:'s character

Made with Copics markers, on photocopy paper ('.';) with color pencils and white ink too.

Here come BLABLA on the context of the image XD
You had already "met" King Ardent ([link]), the sovereign of Tonalli Kingdom.

Well, meet Queen Gentille, his wife

Wait , wut?
If some of you remember, I already drew Gentille once, here([link])
See a difference...
Well ,there is a reason why those boobs look remade... it's because they WERE remade.

Not happy that her husband liked more curvy women, she decided, with the help of Nuage (another chara) and a DEMON to have a new body.

Ardent like it A LOT... but she don't want to hear anything about going further in their relation now... she's angry because he likes her more now...physically XD.

She's only 17 by the way. Terrifying, right?

For those who know exalted, she's a Night Caste.... she used to be Ardent's bodyguard and spy before marrying him

Oh interesting! The background and her clothes look like they take inspiration from a LOT of different sources! I can see Persian, Greek, Aztec, Medieval European, even Chinese! It's very beautiful and VERY Exalted.

As is she, of course! Amazing! Also: Whoa, boobs! But why does she not want to hear about taking their relationship further? They're married, for Sol Invictus' sake! She changed her body so he would find her more attractive and now she doesn't want to do the deed? What's going through her head?! :P

Awww, thank you very much. I really like to do that kind of design, and people from that imaginary kingdom are always fun too draw.

And why she don't want too? Well she was young, a bit stupid :p She changed for him, but deep inside she wished he would have automatically loved her like she was .... (which would probably have happen if she would just had waited a little bit....) In the end, they did consume their wedding, and their couple was ... ok for some time, but they're not together anymore. They just have a pretty awkward friendship x.x

Awww man, that's sad T_T And they could have lived such a happy life with one another! Poor Gentille and Ardent... Fate cheated them. Where's a Gold Faction Sidereal from the Beaueu of Contentment when you need one?!

That's is funny getting a demon to give you plastic surgery of sorts.
The colours are fantastic and remind me of peacocks! The amount of detail you put into this is astounding. I love the background too. And what blows my mind is that it only took you two days.
The perspective on this is quite well done too.
