C74: Carnelian

It’s now the middle of September, which means that the good quality, highly anticipated doujins are starting to get released. And, I’m really really really really happy that the Carnelian doujins are now out (there are two doujins, the first is a macross frontier h-doujin, and the second is a work safe short artbook. By the way, the image below came from said artbook.).

Born in September 21, 1973 as 远藤 直, Carnelian is one of my favorite artists. I don’t need to tell you why, because you can tell that her illustrations are beautiful. She’s widely popular, even before the artists like Ito Noizi had gained fame, and she has a large list of works (including a manga named 銀色のシィナ). The one interesting thing that I like about her art is that she does the illustration, including shadows in ink first, then color the lines in the computer, giving her art this elegant feeling (however, this signature looks is fading more and more as she’s slowly turning to a smooth and light CG style).Her works include:

Revolver (PIL/Flying Shine, 1998)
Re・leaf (シーズウェア, 1998)
MACHINE MAIDEN (evolution, 1999)
WAM-xxxnovel.wetandmessy.com- (PIL/Flying Shine, 1999)

レンズの向こう侧… (MINA, 2000)
恋ようび (ACTRESS, 2000)
将姫 (シーズウェア, 2000)
EVEZERO ark of the matter (シーズウェア, 2000)

ひまわりの咲くまち (フェアリーテール, 2002)
ヤミと帽子と本の旅人 (ROOT, 2002)
梦鬼-Night Demon-(ALICE SOFT, 2003)
きると (CLOVER, 2005)
承平クンのHANI神ライフ☆ (ROOT, 2006)
メサイア (CORE, 2006)

桃華月憚 toukagettan( ROOT , 2007)

That is A LOT of games, and I’m sad to admit that I don’t have the cg sets to all of them. Of course, since she’s so popular, she also did A LOT of guest work, some calendars, and magazine illustrationg. I don’t have too many of those either. However, I WILL post here some of my favorite illustrations.
