This is really nice, love the chunky shading here. Lovely, you've really got an eye for value and colour and light. Also I really like how you did that wire fence..i think thats what it is..anyway, about her ethnicity...yeah she certainly looks european, but I feel that she has some eastern influences on her face..dunno, maybe she's Asian European, like perhaps one her ancestors might have been from East Asia..and the others from europe. Looking at your other pictures though, I think she might be from hmm, I dunno, Switzerland? Or Germany..lol so random, but uh yeah

Awesome pic!

I fail at guessing ethnicity; but I guess she looks italian or spanish? XD;;
This looks really nice! Your style and lines are always great, and I love the color scheme. The shading is fantastic too, especially on her skin. *3*

Yeah, probably cause she's pretty and has a cool name lol. But I think she could easily be from anywhere. XD

Haha it's true, but after drawing her for some time I've been getting such a closer feel to her. I can almost see what she would look like in real-life, but I'm bad at pinpointing ethicities. That's why I'm curious as to what everybody else thinks, or gets the impression of. :D

Ah I see. :D Makes sense.

Well that's cool! Yeah, you really begin to get to know a character after such a long time. (You did invent them after all, but still... XD) I can be a lot of fun, making a character and understanding how they think and work lol. :D

Really? XDD You're surrounded by japanese people everyday, so I guess you would know, hahah

I had originally even thought of making Vera chinese, but I liked the roundness of the eyes too much, and it's not very asian-ish. But who knows, some artists can legitimately pull it off

It may be the influence of all the Japanese people so don't take my word for it :D :D :D

Hmmm. I'd like to think she's croatian or Czech; some sort of eastern European, maybe with a bit of an accent. ;>

I would say she looks like she from European countries for sure I think. Hmm maybe some German or some where south of that.

Still very lovely pin up ^^ i just love the look in her face very sweet.

Kitsoru-san Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2010
Well... looking closely she appears to have green/blue eyes, and the skintones are on the medium/light tan side, so I'm gonna say Caucasian.

...Is it weird I dig the detailing of shadow/light on the background?
Reply
:iconyanyu:
YanYu Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2010
No ;D

Yeah.. originally she had brown eyes, but then it changed to grey. Now it's a bluish green, derp.

Silly, of course she's caucasian XD I meant like what countries :giggle:

:iconkitsoru-san:
Kitsoru-san Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2010
OH

uh. Hmm... apparently the name origin is Russian.. but that means nothing so. NO IDEA.

She looks a little Southern European in origin or descent though, maybe? I guess cuz her skin's a little tanner/yellower. Like Mediterranean or Spanish or somesuch.

Haha, I love your version of pin-up-ish art. X3 It's almost amusing in how well you texture everything. Kinda' like how Perry Bible Fellowship is sometimes ten times more hilarious when you can tell they spent 10 hours on the comic strip.

I like how you paint. It's so natural, but still defined and strong in your style. And the little touches. XD Haha, you're awesome. I'm done praising you.
