Ib: Smile! by ruina Ib: Smile! by ruina

More Ib fanart for the Ib Festival on pixiv! :heart: Ideally I would have loved to spend more time on it, but the festival was about to end... so it's rushed again... ;A;

I also tried to incorporate brighter and more saturated colors, as I've finally realized that the majority of my works are all so dark! At AX, I was walking around the artists alley during setup hours and seeing everyone's tables with so many colorful works made my eyes sparkle! And then I came back to my table and noticed that my entire display was just a mass of darkness... so I'll be challenging myself to incorporate more seizure colors in my works. :la:

For those who don't know, Ib is a horror game created by kouri on RPGMaker. You can download the english version here:…

Is this in the 'Welcome to the World of Guertena' ending, or is it just them posing for a picture? 

Other than that, this is awesome! Nice job. I'mma go look at your Gallery now. =D

Mary's version of them is so creepy... then again, it's probably accurate due to her life in the Gallery.

nice work

Mary killed Garry? Huh. I watched an 'all endings' video for Ib, and I THINK that may have been one of the endings. But I watched the video a while ago, so I guess either way, if the creator of the video included that ending or not, I would have forgotten. I love Mary because I can't bring myself to hate anything (with the exception of BARRELS >:C) and because her character design and personality are as close to flawless as can be. Though I love Mary (and understand why she would have killed him, lacking a COMPLETE human conscience and all), I favor Garry over every character in the game, even Ib herself. In conclusion, to wrap things up and make a long story short (even though a few people may have read this extremely long comment hoping to reach the actual point of it) I want to love the life out of Mary.

Very nice work, by the way. :D

Teehee, oh Mary, you silly person. XD
I wonder how they'll react when they see the finished result...

(I accidentally put this in my Vocaloid collection :rofl: I fail so much :iconlazycryplz:)

I love how Mary sees the world around herself.
...Do I sound creepy?

@TheFragileBlueRose Mary was just a painting. She wasn't human therefore didn't really understand what she was doing. So burning her is really unnecessary (*SPOILER ALERT AHEAD* since she was already burned with Garry's lighter in the true end). If you were trapped in a art gallery and someone happens to come to that place, would you let them go or face more isolation by yourself? I am equally pissed (excuse my language) as you are that Garry was killed (He's so cute and I'm a Garry fangirl ^u^). But I do choose to look into why Mary did that. What was this all about you might say? I have two reasons for this. First reason: I am just upset when someone have Mary as the bad painting (?) who was just out for blood lust. Second reason: My first comment on Deviant art (and its a rant XD) which seem legit enough to type.

Other than that, nice to see more Ib fans! I was upset when I got the bad endings first too, but I couldn't come to really hate Mary, I still like her character.

Now I hope that you've learned you're lesson- never give Mary a paintbrush. NEVER.
CrystaliteKokoro Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012
I never really liked Mary... Because of her in some endings Gary and Ib couldn't be together.... TT^TT </3
sArYtA Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012  Hobbyist
Wow, what an original picture, so full of colors and cuteness! I love it, so I fav it C:
Mary is creepy as hell, but the only reason why I hated her was because in an ending she killed Garry to get out of the painting with Ib, and I love Garry too much ;_;
ruina Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2012   General Artist
Thank you! :heart:
Yeah, I was sad too when she killed Garry. ;^;

the thing is that you'd be like that too if you were trapped in an alternate/ other world Earth for so many years as well, so give Mary a brake for once she was abandoned and there were only monsters around to keep her company so it would be likely for any one under that circumstance would with out a doubt go insane. comment and reply if you think I'm wrong.
ruina Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012   General Artist
I don't think you're wrong. While Mary did give me a few jumps and shivers at certain scenes, I still really love her character and wish there was a special ending where all three of them could have worked out a happy ending. ;v;
Olivia117 Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2012   Artist
thanks for supporting my opinion but still anyone would go insane if they were raised or abandoned in a world like that
TheFragileBlueRose Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2012
