Harper Heart by Tajii-chan Harper Heart by Tajii-chan
"Twenty years ago, my father made a breakthrough in the science of music. He was studying how certain sounds affect the human body. And well, he discovered that certain sounds could even control the human body. He started experimenting with different sounds-- anything that had a consistent beat. That’s how he came to study the human heart.” She gently caresses her guitar, pausing. “He came up with heart strings a little more than five months ago. They literally represent the beating of a human heart. That’s why, when I pull on these strings.. I can give people heart attacks.”

-----

Harper Heart, my main character for a collaborated story I'm writing with *Sitraxis ;) I've been wanting to draw a better ref of her outfit and so I made this on a whim today. She's a guitarist that can control the beating of the human heart with her father's invention-- the heart strings. Normally she wears the strings around her arms to keep others from playing them, because they're incredibly dangerous. So she switches between her strings often.

1/8 sketched artworks completed :')

Muziq (c) `Tajii-chan, *Sitraxis

Harper Heart (c) `Tajii-chan :heart:

Also have this here so I can give it to people to ref when they draw her. I've been wasting money on commissions because I have a paypal now >u>;;

I-I would be honored to receive fan art of her by you >//< I really love seeing the Muziq characters in other peoples' styles <33 And Harper is especially important to me since she's my first :heart: Plus, you have this really elegant way of drawing hair, and you do a great job with clothing/coloring as well!

I'm really so happy you like her design! I always have a ton of fun drawing her myself :la:

N'aww, there are probably tons of deviants dying to do an AT with you, so don't bother~

Besides, I've kinda been ignoring our friendship the past weeks, so it's the least I could do: draw you some fanart.

I can imagine!:D I discovered not too long ago clothing designs can be surprisingly nice to do:B
hey, what kind of paper/colorpencils do you usually use on your art?:o I always liked this kind of blending you do with them. I'd like to try so one day, since I work with solid colors in general.

Yes :love: Now if only you could do them without having to put them on top of a mannequin to look good..

Faber Castell, although lately I've been using Prismacolor because I had no Faber in Colorado .__.;

But your solid colors are really pretty! They're very vibrant :love:

Holy. I would not want to meet her in the night. .___. Like, what if she played Mary had a little lamb and suddenly 13 people around her got heart attacks? That is scary. Nonetheless, I love this idea. I love your characters and your beautiful character design is an absolute bonus. :love: Reminds me of Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask a bit. :aww:
Reply
:icontajii-chan:
Tajii-chan Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Aha, she's reluctant about using them at all since they're so dangerous but yes, you definitely would not want to be an enemy lD;;

To play "Mary had a little lamb" she'd have to replace the heart strings with her normal strings, which she does when she's just playing and singing :heart:

Oh, thank you so much! You're too kind as always :love:

Majora's Mask was such a creepy and fun game!

:iconolympianangel:
OlympianAngel Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ah, good, I'm glad to hear (hopefully not from her heart strings), that she has normal strings. :D

Haha, yeah. Agreed. I watched a LP of it, Majora's Mask did creep me out a bit. Especially the moon and the when the mask grew legs. .___. My god. But, the game is so sad and beautiful as well. I hope they make a remake soon. :love:

:icontajii-chan:
Tajii-chan Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes, she switches between them depending on if she's fighting or playing normal music :heart:

I just played it last year and it freaked me out D8 The moon was weird and on the final day when it was literally hovering right above your head.. I almost had a heart attack ;;

Indeed, it was a beautiful game. One of my favorite Zelda's in any case ;)

I'm glad somebody agrees with me on that. I'd really hate it if that would happen to poor Earth. /cries

Majora's transformation was scary for me. :ohnoes: Like, the way IT GREW LEGS AND A FACE. WHAT. AND WHIPS FOR HANDS. WHAT. RATED E FOR EVERYBODY GUISE.
