The Huntress by Sudekka The Huntress by Sudekka
Probably one of my favorite characters from the Percy Jackson books.


“Stars. I can see the stars, my lady.”
– Zoë Nightshade to Artemis, in The Titan's Curse, written by Rick Riordan

Also something I love discussing: If you had the chance, would you join The Huntresses? I think I would ^^

on Tumblr! [link]

Yes, I would love to give a great reason to a boy to stop coming to my house like 3 times in one day and It's  been 2 weeks and I'm getting tired.

Love the piece! (Especially the tiara haha) But I don't think I would join the huntresses. They are so cool and I really admire them but I don't know if I would want to live forever with just a small group of people. Plus, it's just girls. It just makes me really sad that they won't experience love or heartbreak or all the normal things people experience. It'd be rough to want to leave the hunters only to find that the world you knew was gone

Thank you!! :D <3
that's a good point you have there and i guess that's why a lot of girls didnt join the huntresses. but i also think the girls who did join, already had an experience that showed them that you "can't trust guys". think of rape or a father abusing his child and stuff. of course, i never experienced such a thing. but i guess living forever attracts me a looot haha i'm such a fool xD

Haha no your not a fool! I just did a speech at my school about how people have this instinct to live forever, very interesting! And I never considered the rape/abuse thing which makes a lot of sense. Having never been through that myself I can't relate but I dont know if shutting yourself off from men forever is a good solution to that? But yeah I've never been through it so I don't know what i'd do if it was me!

oh wow thats awesome! sounds interesting c: i havent been through it too, luckily.
i guess it's just has to do with the thought of men always being harsh and rough and mean idk i can't relate to it either haha

one more question: if you do your line art traditionally, how do you make your background completely white in sai?
thank you so much for your help!

:iconsudekka:
Sudekka Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm, well it normally is white? It is not transparent, so when using layers, the colors get darker (that's the reason I don't use layers) so it actually isn't white. :(
If you want to though, and if you have Photoshop, open your drawing with Photoshop and save it as a psd file. If you open it with SAI then, all the white should be transparent which might not work if your background is a bit yellowish/grayish? I never tried actually
But yeah, if you use one layer, it shouldn't be a problem with the colors. Adding a background is hard tho :(
And you're welcome!

sorry to keep asking you questions, but what brush(es) did you use when you colored this in SAI? I absolutely adore how this drawing is colored!

Sudekka Featured By Owner May 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Don't worry, I don't mind at all!
I use the brush tool (simple circle) to add base colors. Then, for the shadows, I do the exact same thing as Viria (who is probably my biggest art idol ever) that I have learned in her tutorial here (step 5), though I do it all in one layer.
Afterwards, I also use the pen tool to add shine in her eyes and a little bit on her nose.

That's it, I suppose! I don't go really fancy with coloring, I think it's quite simple.
I hope this was helpful :)

Huntresses sounds like something totally awesome but... CHB is true for me. Maybe in time I would join the Huntresses (immortality) or if the person I loved/married but not with children died so I could see the world change. It is a huge commitment and a lot of different aspects aren't great (no boys...evah!!! No really my problem but it is considerably great).

Depends for me I think cause my opinion (especially after reading CP2) is that immortality is great as long as you have someone to share it with. If not you live while watching the ones you love die and living with your life with only your regrets and sorrows...Unless guilt means nothing to you.

Yeahh I hesitate too actually, but I'm that kind of person who loves seeing how everything turns out and stuff! Like sometimes I get a bit sad because I won't see extreme high technology and other clothes etc. I would love to be immortal and go through a lot and you're not alone! you're together with a lot of other girls and you're always bad-ass fighting etc. Though yeah.. giving up love (as in marriage and stuff) IS really big.. And I'm actually that kind of girl who can drool over cute guys, maybe I'm not meant to be a Huntress hahah. And you'd have to leave your family, that's a big thing too... GAH this is actually really hard if you think about it xD

When someone talks about the people they love, i automatically think of my parents, and it is normal that your parents die before you, so that would happen anyway. Sure, it will be hard to watch your friends get older and die but who says they wouldnt choose to join Artemis too? Of course I'll miss my guy friends but I think the seal of Artemis would help me like mentally build a wall between me and guys in a romantical sense. And it's not like you stay in your city, you're travelling and hunting with your new eternal family and friends.
Maybe it's just me being extremely curious to immortality, or maybe it's just me not seeing Death as something bad, but I think joining Artemis would be my choice if I had the chance.

I guess we'll have to see the different possibilities and perspectives before choosing what we'll be and choose when the opportunities come (*just a thought*).
Being a Hunter would be awesome, period. Your points are true and maybe I'll have to accept that life is all about accepting Death, which isn't all that horrible for the one that dies but the one who shares memories of the deceased. Memories are all that Hunters have left once they become one.

Of course, but I think all those girls are children without a family, or maybe just a bad family. And with joining Artemis, they would have a family forever. I think that is what those girls wanted the most. Luckily, I have a great family, but I just get a kick from getting into adventures. But now, I'm not sure if I would join. I would leave so many things behind.

It's horrible when someone you love, or maybe just know from school, dies. It happened a few months ago at my school, one of the sweetest (and one of the most popular people I must say) boys of my school had a car accident and died. He was only 16. You realize how death can be when it's so close to you. Especially when it takes someone away who didn't deserve it at all.
But after awhile, you stop being so sad (of course you're still sad, but it's not that miserable kind of sad) and remember the good and funny things about that person. And yes, you realize memories are the only thing you have then. But who says memories like that are bad?

wow this conversation actually took a surprising turn, i like it tho ^^

Someone once told me all that a human actually owns (I don't think people own money because it is given and work for and eventually passed on). It's a great piece of advice because it makes you want to remember all of them, the good, the bad. Also, people don't forget things; the brain just stores the lesser pieces of information in the recesses of the brain (fun fact of the day ^^).

I also seek adventure and have a wonderful family and sometimes to find adventure, you must leave all that's familiar to you. The Huntresses are a family joined by that bond and over time they would become familiar with each other and seek the same path, to serve Artemis. Therefore the same adventure. To accomplish both, joining the Hunters may be the best solution.

I understand great loss as somebody close to me has died recently and as my family makes that transition. I've noticed that as time goes on, the stress of losing that person that you've depended on shadows the good memories with the "Ifs". I accept death but when surrounded with others that are still grieving pulls you back into grief (sometimes).

This conversation is simply uncovering who we are underneath the profiles ^^.

That's a beautiful thought <3 and I think I agree. I actually knew that! I love googling random stuff like that, today for example, I caught myself reading an article about amnesia haha, i just find it really fascinating.
My family is a bit lazy actually haha we don't do stuff that often. Maybe because my parents both work quite long, and my sister and I have lots of homework and work and sports so we only really see each other at dinner. I don't really mind tho, I'm quite an Einzelgänger.
Yes, death is horrible, but sometimes welcoming too. When you're old and you had your life and you feel ready to go, I kind of understand that feeling.

Exactly! Great for some nice discussions :)
