Lazuli by raizy Lazuli by raizy
I guess I could have called this "Lazuli the Water Demon" because she has no last name. Anyway, occasionally people will express their surprise that Lazuli is female. Today I was thinking about how when I was a kid it took me a while to realize that Shenzi (the lead hyena in The Lion King) was female. CLEARLY this means that Whoopi Goldberg should voice Lazuli in the feature-length animated adaptation of Slightly Damned, coming to a theater near you when pigs fly.

Lazuli is my original character and she is from Slightly Damned.

i always imagined Lenore Zann (voice of Aisha- Outlaw star) doing lazuli's voice, seriously, both have the same temper, care more than they let on, and have the same hot headed demenor when it comes to confrontation

and technically they're both cats in a way

Lazuli is my its to more than likely going to die when she meets up with Kieri even tho there a lot way she could join the comic without her killing anyone

If Lazuli's a water demon, why is it she has no amphibious traits like you mentioned they have on your site? Furthermore, she looks to be about the same size as Buwaro, if not a litle aller, and Water Demons are supposed to be the shortest

You're probably thinking that amphibious means that the Demons have to look like frogs or newts, but that's not what the word actually means. It means able to live/thrive on both land and water, and Lazuli has shown very clearly that she cannot be thwarted even by an icy cold lake.

As for their size, Buwaro is a runt.

Ah, that answers it then. Y'know, I'd LOVE to help with the makings of Slightly Damned. Not saying I could make any artwork, but rather help with the story, as I'm an aspiring novelist

Lazuli's secret hobby: manicures?

And sometimes I do have a hard time believing LAzuli is female. I was CERTAIN she just had really big pecs.

oh yeah, I liked that hyena, It's voiced by a famous female comedian here in Germany and I guess that would match Lazuli, too. :)

Nice drawing as always. :)

Yeah, I realized that when I read the comments after I posted. :XD:

But then again, she's a demon who dwells in Hell. Maybe down there nails DON'T grow back, huh? I imagine many women would consider that a form of eternal torment. (My sis always makes a deal of it when hers break.)

But Lazuli isn't in Hell, and the nail would have grown back even if she was. :B

I really am digging this new style. I'm not sure what it is, but when this image loaded I was struck by how good it looks. I guess the colors seem to pop more?

I think Whoopi Goldberg would be compatible with the way I imagined Lazuli's voice sounded.

So yeah... Movie I must see

I'm really liking the new shading!

Oh, and speaking of animated adaptions of SDamned, I had a dream of that once, only it was an animated tv show, and the voices and story were horribly horribly wrong. But for some reason, I was sure it was a Slightly Damned adaption. :shrug:

Well, Lazuli certainly looks more menacing in this depiction of her. Usually, I get too absorbed in her big eyes and her rounded nose.

In responce to your comment on the probability of a Slightly Damned movie; don't underestimate the devotion of your fans! while I can't guarentee a THEATRICAL release, the idea of making an animated movie for you when I got my degree in Animation has always hanged in the back of my mind. However that day is a long way off and it's more likely that someone else will step up to the task.
