Afe'la Ohr, Activate! by ChikitaWolf Afe'la Ohr, Activate! by ChikitaWolf
Kira Malcolm [SOTF] (c) ChikitaWolf
D.Gray-Man (c) Hoshino Katsura

(this is old, like months old, and I only finished it now LMAO)

Hnnn, dA always ruins colors -

So this is Kira activating "Afe'la Ohr," her Parasitic Innocence which resides in the epidermal layer of her skin. Deactivated, it visually reveals itself as two inch black bands of flesh on her wrists and ankles. When she activates her Innocence, the parts of her skin that accumulate the most Innocence energy turn hard (like armour) and black, giving off a bluish, Innocencial glow. She gives up this "armour" to form attacks like her Light Cannon, skin-attached knuckle-knives, or skin-attached scythe (which she's forming here). The shapes on her flesh correspond with those that Hoshino often uses when drawing Innocence forming or just being bad ass, so I made use of it for Kira too. c:

The words in the background are from the first chapter of my DGM fanfiction, Song of the Fourteenth (SOTF), which Kira plays her role in. If you wanna read her fanfic, click here <3

I realized a day or so ago (after finding my old notes) that there were some things I missed with Kira's Innocence, which explains why I was always disatisfied with how I drew her knuckle knives and/or scythe. Turns out I had forgotten some important details, so I'll need to edit her reference sheet and information //mings. Hopefully I can get to that sooner rather than months from now /shot

I had quite a few years to plan Kira out lmao xD
I think Reisy inspired me on including words somewhere in the art ;v; She had a really neat drawing of Rei a while back made out of words, as did Paps for her fan character Anna <3

Thank you so much ;7; <3 <3

alksdjfladsjf amg Papy xD///

The secret is using reddish-browns for the shading, then red blush 8'D
Took me a while to figure it out too lmao. 

On this drawing I started with her base skin color. Then I added a mix of hard (cell)  shading with reddish-brown; slightly darker toned red for blush on the cheeks, elbows, etc; some blended marker of solid brown to soften up areas; and then finally the luminosity (her normal skin color) with the watercolour and/or airbrush tool on her face to give her that "lively glow there. 'v'

The fun part about Kira is that she's Cherokee, so she naturally has reddish-brown skin anyway, so you don't have to worry too much about going overboard.
