MANA by SlurEXE MANA by SlurEXE
With Mana making a dynamic entrance into the current arc, I decided I wanted to draw something with him! It ended up being (at least kind of) his point of view from when he was made into an Akuma. This is made with the thought that even if Mana was crazy or looking for the 14th, he really did care for and think of Allen as his son, and was trying to help him in the end.

I figured I should finish this and upload it before the new chapter comes out and renders all of this moot.

I was listening to depressing music almost the entire time I was coloring this, which made it all the worse when it's already less-than-happy material. Bleh.

This is awesome! This, to me, is one of the most emotional scenes from D. Gray Man. Thank you for making this!!'

Weeell, I always think Allen is part Akuma since then, since Mana is in his eye, or some part of his skull or something (in Krory's Castle). Akuma enter the body of their loved one, that means Mana might have entered Allen as an Akuma a bit, no? o: I wish there was a fanfic or fanart about that xDD With dark genre :3

I think my favorite things in this strip are the expressions and Mana's dialogue. They not only stab me repeatedly with feels, but are very meaningful and just incredible. I can't take the look on Allen's face and I'm not even kidding when I say I may just bawl after reading this again xD Listening to depressing soundtraks doesn't help much either, does it?

Yeah, those were the things I really wanted to pay attention to, I hoped they would come across! Nah, from personal experience I can say that sad songs can make it twice as bad :ohnoes: I'm really glad you were moved by it, even if it was sad!

Then I have succeeded in conveying the feeling. ;A; I don't know, I guess it's just how I feel about the relationship in general.

Whenever mana came up (either human or akuma form) I would stare at his nose.... THEN when you drew him I had enough of pig mana!!!!! (Just to clear thing up I would always check in the flashbacks if mana still had that nose...)
