Himitsu Ja Nai by Kid-Apocalypse Himitsu Ja Nai by Kid-Apocalypse
It's enormous. Please download for real fullview, this took me the best part of a week. m(_ _)m Also, artist's comment block. Heh, and this from a person who really can't do fanart. ...and the title means "It's Not a Secret".

Aaaaaaaaand I have no friends who will fully appreciate this. :cries: Slayers is a really old anime that I love (for a long time now ^^; ) and these are my scarred ones dressed as five of the characters. I probably (read: "definitely") didn't get the costumes exactly right, but the only one of these characters I've seen in a few years is Zelgadis, so...be kind if you recognize something I did wrong or forgot. ...anyone who might, that is.

THE COLORS WERE SO DIFFICULT!! Most of these I have never used, and I was trying to match them with ones I barely remember. And then when I got to Roman (i started with Dice and worked my way to the left) my ability to draw feet/boots said "Screw you" and died.

From left to right:

Lyra Descartes as Naga the Serpent (ホホホ ~ ;p)
Roman Abbot as Xellos the self-named Trickster Priest--the blindfold is not part of the costume, though that's a little obvious. :giggle:
Vanguard "Van" McKitterick as Zelgadis Greywords (seriously, wiki this character and you'll get a kick out of why I picked Van to 'cosplay' him)
Emily Iverson as Filia ul Copt (who is technically a dragon, but I didn't draw the tail :P )
Dice Adams as Valgaav (also a dragon, that's why the horn. WIG! :D )

The Scarred Ones - me~
Slayers is (c) Kanzaka Hajime (the person who first made me want to learn Japanese so I could read his novels) and anime people

...It's all about the t-shirts, tunics, pants and skirts. And tennis shoes/sneakers. niiiiice and simple.

What tennis shoes/sneakers? They all have boots in this pic, and in one case, slippers... :confused:

So I said yeah, since t-shirts, tunics, pants, skirts, boots and sneakers are easier to draw.

Oh. XD Guess that's what happens when I don't pay attention to a conversation. Sorry. ^^; You're right. I love drawing tunics.

That really IS awesome. I full viewed it, and had to stare...if this is 'artist block', it'll be interesting to see you when you really get going again, with this much detail and characterization!!! :clap: :clap:
And personally, if you hadn't said anything about the boots and such, I'd have thought they were just part of the character...:)

Thanks! It really came outta nowhere... :O :D Working on a personal request now, so maybe that'll do it. I'm starting to really fall in love with drawing isty details.

;) That would've been cheating, though.

I've drawn itsy detail for as long as I can remember...^^; It can be a blessing and a curse.

Really now...see, now, you just went up another notch in my opinion...if you're willing to be honest about something as insignificant as that...:nod:
