Audiomachine - Death Mask ♫

Voice: Pretty old-sounding, and very cold voice. The perfect example I found is the French voice actor of Moro, the she-wolf from Princess Mononoke, this is the EXACT same voice I had imagined for Heinaus. Unfortunately I cannot find any audio example so that you can hear it, I guess the only way is to watch the French version of the movie..<-<

The place she lives in is actually not "unknown", I'm just gonna keep it secret for..reasons :XD:



At last, here is the long-awaited reference sheet of that beloved Spiky Lady! Look at that, and I thought I would never manage to write down enough info about Heiny! Yet I ended up writting even more about her than I did for Skye xD
I don't draw her that much compared to my other chars but this doesn't mean I like her less, faaaaar from that! She has always been pretty special to me...The memories I have about how much fun it was to draw her during her first appearances in my old comic, it was so great <3 That and she's just really fun to draw, with those exagerated expressions of hers.

And to say that her creation was completely accidental...I created her at the VERY last second while I was drawing a comic page. Another chara was supposed to appear instead of her, but after reading someone's comment I thought it was better to make a new chara appear instead, and so she was designed in a good... 10 minutes. Who would've known that she would get this far!
Also the bottom-right headshot sketch in the background is a little remake of a panel from one of the comic pages :XD:

And with that, I've finally done all the refs I wanted to make! :lol: ...Though now I'm thinking of remaking Auros', cause I don't draw her exactly the same way as she looks in her ref now.
Then when Asin will have finished the ref of her charas I can start that height comparison sheet 8D It's nothing special but for some reason I can't wait to do that.

Enjoy! Omg so hungry...

Hi I was on YouTube and I saw your comic

I can not find it anywhere could you please give me a link or something like that. It looks really good
oogaboogaz Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013
Not much to say about Heinaus. Judging by her profile, she is the villain of this universe. Critique time…

Personality: She is what every villain should be; power-hungry, self-centered, impulsive, and…evil. There are a few things missing here. What is her ambition, her desire, and why did she become villainous? Why does she have this villainous drive in her veins? Is Skye her arch-nemesis?

Design: Her design is fine the way it is. She is as lethal as her personality. The brown and reddish colors blend well with her. The purple necklace seems out of place, unless it serves a purpose. One thing that bothers me is the horns poking forward from her neck. Imagine yourself with horns poking forward from your neck. That seems rather uncomfortable.

Overall, this character needs the least amount of work out of all of your characters. Nice work! I’ll have to check Skye out later.
XxInfernusxX Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013
Remember, she has been corrupted by Malefor, so that means she can be good. But it's going to take a lot of work to get that necklace off. IT's the necklace that gives her most of her strenght. Take it off and you have a good chance of freeing her.
Fourth-Star Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm not telling anything about her goal and the reason she became "evil" on purpose ;p I want to keep this a mystery and reveal all of this in due time.
Her necklace served a purpose in my previous comic, but now it's pretty much useless...I'm keeping it as a part of her design though until I find another purpose for it, if I fail to find one I will just remove it.
Ha true, these horns do look uncomfortable especially for sleeping :XD:; But I can't imagine her without it, they've become one of her main features.
Glad to hear! Thanks a lot :dummy:

What happens if she bends her head down in her sleep? Or she gets thrown into a stone wall, they get ripped off and she falls in a pool of blood.

The French voice dubbing actor for Moro in Princess Monoke is done by Catherine Sola. So you want her to voice Heinaus in the French dubs?

Heinaus looks so awsome :3
LuminStarHero Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aww. By reading her story, I'm guessing she was frowned upon, betrayed, used, etc younger, and this made her all closed-hearted toward others. IDK just how it sounds XD If ... that made sense??

LOOOVE the colors used here >w< I love all these colors you pic for your refs. I JUST??? I CAN'T???

Can't wait for the heights thing :> Looking forward to it~! (I should remake my size picture >:I *slaps self*)

I greatly enjoyed reading Heinaus' biography! Now I feel like I know her better. ;)
YoungEclipse Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
:lol: wow this looks fantastic, you always go far with the details! I love your new style, you just improve in it everyday! You often do a superb job on drawing Heinaus with a "don't-mess-with-me" face. I can see that you have placed the origin of light more towards the front of the dragon, and the shading is perfect! I realize that must be one of your strong techniques in drawing because you always do a great job at it! :dummy: This is pretty well done over-all! It's always nice to see you posting on DA, your art is inspiring to many people including myself and you always manage to make us go "woah, she's always being awesome" every time you post any drawing of yours on this great big internet! :iconwoooplz: and we're all like :nuu: how does she do it!?
Anyways, as it would be put in french, Travail fantastique! :iconlawooplz:
and to be honest I always imagined Heinaus to have a voice similar to Envy's in the anime series "Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood" It's a great series and I know you probably get a lot of suggestions for everything lol but you should watch it if you have time and if you haven't already! It was co-produced by Square Enix and well we all love their story lines, FMAB has a fantastic story line that left many Square Enix-lovers, breathless (including me) I mean, who doesn't love the Kingdom Hearts series or many of the different Final Fantasy games? :shrug:
So you should watch it if you feel like it (IF you feel like it) and IF you do, make sure to watch "Fullmetal Alchemist BROTHERHOOD", its a remake of the original series and its far more better than "Fullmetal Alchemist," mainly because its more focused on the story instead of a bunch of random side story's that don't make any sense and for some reason the original series was perverted, but they re-made it and removed that from "FMA Brotherhood" making it a superior version. SO YEAH, try it if you feel like it :stare:
