The Beauty Underneath by andrivette The Beauty Underneath by andrivette
Do you find yourself beguiled
By the dangerous and wild
Do you feed on the need for the beauty underneath?
Have you felt your senses surge
And surrender to the urge
And been hooked as you looked
At the beauty underneath?

- The Beauty Underneath, Andrew Lloyd Weber

--

I apologize for the pink... I'm so predictable. D: The background was originally green... But apparently I cannot resist pink + Mukuro

So... I've been working on this piece for a while. I basically wanted to draw Mukuro to this song and also take the time to figure out what is under the weird cloth on her mechanical arm because I am that addicted to learning everything about Mukuro ever and so this is my headcanon version of her arm. c: IT MAKES SENSE TO ME.

NO BOB THIS TIME SORRY

INTERESTING BACKGROUNDS ARE FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT LAZY

I SUCK AT PAINTING METAL SORRY THIS IS MY FIRST ACTUAL TIME

Mukuro (c) that guy that has done less with Mukuro's character than I have at this point
aka Yoshihiro Togashi...

Beautiful work! I have a quick question...does she really have a mechanical arm? It's been awhile since I've watched it, and I can't remember.

Indeed she does. The anime gives her a real hand (or a flesh glove, idk which) but yeah, she's definitely got a mechanical arm. They also give her half of a mechanical leg, but it doesn't make sense to me, so I never draw it. XD (I guess I'm selectively canon >.>)

It's okay! The lack of Bob is totally acceptable. (been on TvTropes far too much lately)

I love the softness the lack of dark shadows creates, the colours, the expression... It's awesome to see how she's evolved when you draw/ paint her.

The hair would have to be my favourite part, because it looks so smooth, but still hair-like. (Lolz. Hair-ish? Hairy? Haw.)

Yeah man-- it's the artist's journey to keep improving. 8D Looking at art from about 5 years ago really makes you feel like you've accomplished something!

For some reason I would assume that her metallic arm would be covered with some sort of artificial skin covering... But I'm also the idiot who wrote several things like Yomi could see completely forgetting that he's blind. Or maybe he could also die and then come back because Hamlet got a time machine and danced on rainbows like that episode of tartantulas on... Fuck, I hate those massive ass spiders.

What the hell was I saying again? Also my grandma wants to make sure I know how to spell ornery because that would totally help me get a job this summer.
"Why should we hire you?"
"I can spell ornery. O-R-N-E-R-Y."
"...Is that it?"
"Onomatopoeia."
"You got the job and this medal."
"AWESOME!" (Actually the second one used spell check.)

Mukuro burns pink things but inside she really wants to wear nothing but pink and girly frills and stuff. And have teddy bears and live with kittens. And then Hiei walks into the room, belches loud and drops a rat in between her feet before he punches her in the womb. As she wonders how she didn't just end up with Kirin, Hiei decides that today he'll... Oh that can wait til tomorrow. And then he sleeps after sex.

I don't get this either. Though seeing Andrew Lloyd Weber's name makes me wanna watch Phantom of the Opera again. (The movie, not the super awesome play- so everyone who saw it says, alas. And even more since I still need to watch Part 1 one Harry Potter 7.)

Ratty? >_0

cX Thank youuu!! :heart: I KNOW, I didn't notice how I do her cheekbones until Heidi pointed it out and she was like "YOU AND THEM CHEEKBONES." I guess I can't break the image of Mukuro having badass bone structure.

They're the best. eue I don't know. Strong facial features, strong personality. Maybe that's where the association comes from.

SEX PINK. YESSSSS.

And once again, I think the texture of the metal on the arm looks great, especially for a first attempt. Keep practicing and you'll be an expert in no time! ;D

You did an excellent job on the flow of the hair. You also did a good job on creating the illusion of her arm's inner mechanics... The pink isn't THAT bad; it has depth and value to it so that's always a plus.

THANK YOU. Hair is my favorite thing to paint, so I saved it for last... fdsjklfasjd
The mechanical arm was before that, but that's because I HATE THAT THING DJsakldasjda so I was putting it off.
I mean I love her mechanical arm, but I hate painting it. 8C
