Portrait: Gale Shurinai by orribu Portrait: Gale Shurinai by orribu
Gale Shurinai is a meek man and the leader of the stealth faction of the Rebels. He spent his life prior to the Rebels as a promiscuous Corrupted Blanc Guardian who often spent his time around Xenon Naginata's manor and under the pursuit of a man somewhat familiar to him (Andy Ramirez). Upon his release from the clutches of the psychotic Oniyan Emperor, Gale realized his feeble nature and quietly worked to empower himself. This would come to a halt, as he lost his childhood friend, Andy Ramirez, to the Corruption.
After many trials and tribulations, he Awakens as the Azure Oracle, having finally reached his empowered self, but still struggling with his meek nature.

Fuck, first visual art submission of the new year.
So here's Gaaale.
It was hard to do this as I'm still having a bit of a creative block among other things, but I just cranked out what I could.
I'm still struggling with coloring techniques, but I'm getting the hang of it. I might have to refer to ctrl+paint for inspiration.

Up next will be a collab between *Clover1 and me; thennn I want to doodle Luke's Grandfather or something.
After I read Rose for Shurinai from the beginningggg for inspiration. (tl;dr: that creative block is fucking with my ability to script the next chapter).

I hope you guys like it. ;-;

I've always loved drawing him; there's a very serene air about him. Thank you!

I agree! A serene air... I couldn't agree more! Perhaps that's why I adore him so much! :heart:
