Tell me. by Bassara Tell me. by Bassara
"Do you love this district?"
"I don't hate it. Why do you ask?"
"No reason."

Unfortunately, you guys only get the most inane part of the conversation. Boy, when was the last time I drew Cross. Aside from a couple other characters, he's probably one of the oldest characters created for ParaShi. Keke.

That background is most certainly probably not canon. Just wanted to mess around with backgrounds again.

Once again, I find I can't pinpoint only one thing I like about your sketches - I like your sketchy-ness with their tantalizing companion conversations. :D

I really like the background landscape with the distant mountains - it gives a peaceful afternoon type of feeling when coupled with the way the clouds look. I can see a pink and yellow sunset sky while the two overlook another typical waning day of a certain district, when some people are closing up shop or finishing their final purchases and some others are starting their evening wanderings. Probably totally wrong, oh well XD

I'm not familiar with architecture so all I can say is I think it looks cool (the walls look like a maze, that's probably on purpose?). I also wonder what these tall pillars are (I love the small details you added to them) and how did these two get up there. XD;

Thanks for sharing~~~:D

I know. I KNOW I say this a lot, but your comments really do make my day. You somehow managed to figure out the exact time of day despite the lack of colour!! If I had indeed been more colour-inclined or been able to shade the sky properly, that "pink-yellow sky" time of day was exactly what I had in mind 8D 8D! ALSO. You noticed the maze-like structure I was going for with the district below. It is INDEED maze-like on purpose. You have amazing observation skills. Seriously.

Hehe. 8) and since you noticed and asked, I'll give you a proper answer. Only Panthryans live in districts. Acrobatics/free-running is sort of the norm for Panthryans. There are "pillars" set up all over to give a sort of easy-fast access route around the district. The Panthryan got up there through normal good old climbing methods. And Cross....Cross is Cross. =P

I'm glad~~ :D Your replies make my day - I'm assured that I'm not being longwinded and overanalyzing. XD;

I must praise Bassa's art skills more - I was able to see the color of the sky because of your skills in clouds (such a beautiful sky!) and the difference in light/shading between Cross/companion/pillar and the rest of the background. Though truth be told, I was debating between sunset, sunrise, or night - in the end, I just couldn't unsee that pink-yellow sky. X)

Ohh, I think I now have an idea of why the district is maze-like on purpose maybe. Haha, maybe. XD Thank you for your answer~~:D

was this drawn traditionally?
Bassara Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012
Nope. I don't have a scanner, so anything I do that's traditional would never make it to this site.

... You, man, are very suspicious.

*Fails at identifying the person wearing a clothmet*
Bassara Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012
oh excellent. :D I was hoping it'd be sorta ambiguous. You could probably guess who that guy is. So far, of the people I've shown, only one likes wearing clothmets. :D
Rurichin Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
It is. Isn't this the type of dialogue one has before throwing a freaking bomb in said district?
One anime lesson we learn over time is to never trust a person who smiles too much. :/

UH. Well. Then I fail as your stalker /o/ Haha. Was the clothmet guy named?
Bassara Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012
;) He doesn't trust Cross at all, but trust or lack thereof in him hinders Cross' tasks very little.

Nope. Clothmet guy isn't named. That's a huge clue.
He's wearing a different shirt too. :D

So many mysteries surrounding Cross... Or rather, so many mysteries surrounding everyone X)

Hmmm~ : )
