Slayers by shinga Slayers by shinga
I found myself thinking one day about a Gargoyles/Buffy crossover. It amused me, and I then wondered which gargoyle would be a Slayer after the end of Buffy season 7. And even though Ariana is a fan character and not canon... I thought of her. :)

And just so you all know, Buffy is a pain to draw. She has a look that is hard to convert to an animated style. But I think I pulled her off okay. I think. XD

Buffy looks great in your style!

That would make for a most awesome crossover. I think you translated Buffy into your style admirably.
Litwolf689 Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2008
Oh wow, that a brilliant idea! And youre completely right, I cant think of any other female gargoyle who would could do the job (except maybe Demona; OMG Demon the Vampire Slayer! :rofl: She'd be the worst Slayer ever because she would probably happily bow out of the way and let demons and vampires munch away on humans). Ariana would be the perfect Slayer! And she'd totally kick Buffy's butt any day of the week.

Anyway, you gave them perfect expressions and I love Ariana's clothes. They fit her so well =D Great idea! Love it!
FluffyNabs Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2008
I would totally watch that show!
FEuJenny07 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2008  Hobbyist
yep, it works ^^ and Buffy is really similar to the original one :nod:
dacian-goddess Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2008
Oooh, this looks awesome! You really, really captured Buffy's look fantastically (to the point where I went, Ooh, Buffy! from seeing the thumbnail). Gorg!

Ok... that's just amazing XD

lol I knew it was Buffy when I saw it, but the title was a big hint XD God, I love Buffy. This is awesome, lol

Buffy/Gargoyles??!! It's so wrong, it's right! ^_^

The poses are great and smooth; it really looks like a still from an animation. I think you did a wonderful job translating Buffy into an animated style. Overall: Excellent! ^_^

Okay, that concept is just all kinds of awesome. Gargoyles = Buffy? Total win.

Coincidentally, I am watching Buffy S. 7 as I type this. :D

Lol! You too?
Quachir Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2008
I can't really remember when I started to stop watching Buffy regularly and then not really at all. I think it happened some time during the first season of it no longer being on the WB. Kind of killed the show to me at some points... that and I probably didn't have time to watch it as much however I do remember watching the series finalie to understand what you're talking about here.

Ariana is deffinatly a shoe in for being a Slayer whether by the actions in the final episode or by choice. I could see her doing it as a "thrill seeking hobby" ;P

totaly love it, i love the concept and the art :D

There was a fanfic series about 10 years back in which Ariana became a Slayer, but I can't remember the name. At first, I thought this was fanart for it.

Very well done, BTW. :)
Twinsnake-Coatl Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2008
A rather buff version of Ariana from my perspective.
Umm, no pun intended.
xBlackWindDragonx Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2008
You did an AWESOME buffy in my opinion
Duorok Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2008
Beautiful, I love it !
Shahrezad1 Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2008  Student Traditional Artist
You definitely pulled both of them off really well. And I have to admit that they would fight well together. Ariana would probably bug Buffy to death just for the sheer fun of it, but when it comes down to fighting the bad guys, they're an awesome duo.

I really like this.
sinyeta Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2008
It's GREAT! Bloody amazing, that is!
TheCrazyHat Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2008
XD So cool.
NCWeber Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2008  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Heh, it occurs to me that a gargoyle wouldn't need a stake. Just give that nasty vampire an elbow to the chest. They'll never see it coming. :D
sean-izaakse Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2008
You got the Buffy Look down pat. If they ever make an animated version I thin you'd nail the character designs. Well done!
Rogue7 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2008
Nice, you've compiled them well, almost as if they've crossed someone who the 'normal' tactics didn't work on, so they've stepped back to re-strategise
tiamatthefreak Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2008
lol Buffy xD I was just talking about Buffy with my boyfriend. I telling him that I preferred the original over that series.
gothwolfgoddess Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2008
Ugh, Buffy's annoying to draw... She wasn't the best character in the show either, in my opinion...

I really like how this came out. ^^
DeadPegasus Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2008
So her tail just comes straight out her butt, huh?
Shadowdanc3r Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2008
yay, new shinga art <3 nice job, i think the way u draw buffy looks ok. it doesn't look liek SMG imo but one can look at the char and go "oh hey ,buffy" so yah i think u do good with it.
Juteboxhero Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2008   Writer
Wonderfully done:)
Roshen-Art Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2008
This is very good.

However, I was thinking of Fray when I saw it...

I agree with previous comments that you did a great job on translating Buffy :). Very interesting concept.

Buffy's hair is so full of movement! This deserves a favorite!
EevilOverlord Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2008
When I saw this pic, my first thought was "hey, Buffy!!" So I think you did just fine. ^_^ Great pic, and what a crossover that would be. *G*
silentXraven Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2008
You made Buffy look FINE! You did not mutilate her at all, if that helps.
taito Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2008
You pulled her off decently, I think. Cute.
