Alichino by sophiaazhou Alichino by sophiaazhou
Compassionate...yet cruel. Faint of heart...yet ferocious. They can grant your heart's fondest desire...but your soul will pay a heavy toll.
They are the Alichino.
Some people call them "The Inviters." They say Alichino can take many different forms...and possess a beauty beyond compare. Their wings are as light as gossamer, and their soulds as lily white as winter's first snow.
Just like angels.
And the believers of these tales...

Are nothing but fools.




model/photographer/editing/MUA: me
and hair brushes from ~trisste-brushes
"Alichino" is a manga series that belongs to the amazing Kouyu Shurei

This is beautiful!! I've known about your stock galery for a wile but hadn't realised you created amazing photomanipulation and art!!! You're truely talented.

This image capture the feel of the books perfectly, I only hope that she publishes the 4th book at some point. (I have all 3 so far, Kouyu Shurei's art work is a major influence on my own.)

Thank you so, so much! Gosh, I really am so happy to hear that, and I really hope my stock is/will be of some help for your art.

I sincerely hope she'll publish the fourth too-- I feel I've been waiting forever! Correct me if I'm wrong, since it's been a while, but wasn't there a preview sample of 4 in the back of 3? Which would leave one to believe 4 would be out soon... I thought it just needed to be translated to English, but I guess not.

You're welcome! Your stock is usually one of the first places I go to if I'm needing inspiration for a pose or theme.

It must be years by now. Yes there is. That's what I thought too, maybe she hadn't quite finished the last pages or something. But then again as you said, why the preview if it wasn't going to be published at some point?
