since I feel the need to kick up some topics on the forums...

All you artists! What character(s) of yours are your favorites, and why? Give some background information if you want. ^^

Oh, yeah. And I should add, post pictures! :3 It's not an artwork forum without artwork!

Mine would have to be Punk Bunny Girl from my comic the Adventures of ... SOMEONE! .

She is a bunny who dresses like a punk, and is your average cottontailed hero who saves the day XD

Haha, this would entail me actually finishing a picture, hooking up the scanner (I -think- we have one somewhere!), and getting up the gumption to scan it..

The name of my favorite character is Shin-ichiro Minh. ^_^ She, like a lot of my roleplay characters, has her own website (http://www.wolfish.net/minh/) ! I've had her for about two years now..

Ahh, roleplay. >3 I've been a roleplayer for like,. 5 years. XD I found my old old old portofolio yesterday, and found bunches of my old old old roleplay characters. >3

It's just too much fun to make up characters for roleplay.

Oh. Yeah. XD Since I *started* the thread, I should probably contribute too, eh?

One of my favorite characters of my own currently is my character Lena Sigune. She's a fantasy character, and she's got a pretty involved story. ^^;; I'm not going into it all right now. XD

And piccies. Wee. :

Well, I have a character who will be the mascot for my movie company when I make my 1st film next year. She is a Squirelian named Willow.

She is a character in my fantasy stories I wote back in 1988.

here is a rundown of Willow:

Character Description-
She is a Squirlian which is a half squirrel and half elf.

About 5 foot tall, light orange skin large squirrel tail with the main color the same light orange as the rest of her skin but with tan lines on the outside of a black line going from the tip of her tail to the back of her neck.

She has green eyes, darker orange eyebrows and hair the same color going halfway down her back.

As for cloths... she wears a dress with slits up to the waist on the sides and with sleeves the go down to her wrist and are about a foot wide opening at the sleeves.

It has gold celtic designs going around the trim of the neck, sleeves and bottom.

She wears sandals with straps that go up to the knee.

Her ears are squirrel-like cat ears.

She has a staff that goes to her chin with the top an blue orb sticking halfway out of the top with the bottom half embedded in the staff.


-Race History-

For a bit of background on the character her name is Willow (Not the Willow from my Radio Play)She was designed as a co-lead for a trilogy of novels.

The squirlians are an ancient race that were one of the races to tinker with magic around the time the elves were.

Elves however flourished and the Squirlian's met thier dreaded foe, the Kobold (a dog/wolf humaniod creature) and they fought a 100 year war alomost decimating the Squirlian numbers.

The Squirlian populas broke into small tribes and slowly started to ragain thier numbers. after 1000 years thier number grew to 1/2 of what it once was.

Then came Willow, the princess that would unit the Squirlian tribes to make them one of the greatest of the old races.

Then when she was 5 years old a kobold group gathering food poisend the litu berry (A very sweet berry)orchard that the Squirlians got thier food from killing her fiance.

War broke out for 2 years and than the Squirlians finally one by siding with Wood Elves.

However a fire destroyed most of Willow's tribe when she was a young girl (about 8 Years Old) and She went out on her own begging for food on the street of nearby towns.

Then one day an aspirant-in-training (Cleric/priestess to be) named Spring Clearwater took her in and at first Spring's mother was weary on the idea but Willow quickly grew to be like a sister to Spring and the Clearwater's became the stability that Willow needed.

Willow's magic is more shaministic and Drudic in nature and Squirlian's are very intune with nature.

Willow is not one with a lot of possessions. She still believes to take from nature only what you need and nothing else.

That is a quick rundown on Willow and her race.

I'm actually holding a contest to draw my mascot based on the info above and I'll be giving the artist royalities on all the non-movie merchandise such as poster, shirts, action figures and other stuff.

If anyone is interested let me know by PM and I'll give you an e-mail to send the art to.

I've only gotton 3 good pieces of artwork for my mascot and only 1 of them has any real consideration.

FRom,
Joe

I have many original characters most of them available to see in my gallery artworks section!

Although my fave of the lot has to be my parody of Guardian Heroes (that Sega Saturn game by Treasure) that i call Gardening Heroes!
I'll find the pics that i did from it..but i think most people have seen them if they ever met me at a convention!

Hmmm... I draw a lot of original characters. Mostly, I do it for practice... with an original character, you're not limited to a set character design, so its easier to pracitice drawing - perspective, porportions, costume design, ect.

If the pcitures dont' work, just press "refresh" until they do.

My favorite originals:
Black Angel:

Random snutty chatgirl [FAILED proportions paractice]:

Random Elf-o-Doom:

Random Catgirl chibi:

But I also like drawing my friends... moreso than original characters.

And yesh, Madison is spiffycool. >3 But I really like your costume designs for Ocha. ^^ (I think she'd look spiffycool in a rennaissance type outfit in an issue sometime. >3 It'd be rather difficult to blend that into the sci-fi kinda theme, though.. o.O;; )

On one last note, Piper is just too loveable. >3 She's such a ditz. hee.

That's so cool! And it's so cool that there are fellow fantasy artists here. :3

The race sounds quite interesting, although, I'm curious as to how the ears are shaped. A half elf, half squirrel. Meaning, would the ears be pointy, but fuzzy at the end? I just don't get it! XD

looking at the right(the viewer's right) eye, it seems a big larger than the left, giving the viewer the perception that they are lopsided. o.O Maybe it's just me.

My fave original character of mine would prolly be the one that was supposed to be based off of me, but kinda went off on her own thing lol. I've uploaded some crappy oekakis that I drew of her. It's fun drawing her with different hair styles and clothings, but since I suck it doesn't look very fun lol. She's kinda boring, but she's supposed to be normal... well... sort've.

I have 2 favorites.

First would be my oldest character, Lynxa. She started out inspired by ThunderCats. Here she is in pastel, ink and watercolor. Pic on right dated 1988.
http://www.icosplay.com/lynxav.jpg

Second would be MTAC mascot ConKitty. Here she is in line-art, and also colored by Stephen for this year's program guide. What was really nice this year was that not 1 but 2 people dressed up as my mascot - was very flattering and cool to see people make a costume for a character you designed.

When I drew a manga for an assignment (it was of the entire book 'Journey to the center of the Earth') I got attached to all of the characters. ^^ I know Ill love drawing manga if I do it proffesionaly... I have no pics now..no scanner yet. gomen

Doing stuff professionally is so much harder than it really looks, my teacher is an actual comic book artist and he tells us how hard it really is sometimes. It's all deadlined, especially if you don't have a inker or colourist for you it's that much harder. A bunch of sleepless nights as well. But he also says he wouldn't trade it for the world. I don't mean to discourage anybody, it's more than it looks is all. I hope I get to see all of your comics on the stands one day! I'll pick 'em up! :D

I'm working on getting some of my characters ready to be posted on here. I hope to be able to do that soon.

Well, I finally got some of mine set up. (All my files were on another computer.)
>Here's two sisters from a creative endeavor known as the Fighting Force that Sana-chan knows about. It's super cool and insane, and "no one ever said the Fighting Force wasn't stupid!" But it is a lot of fun to work on. We're currently trying to revive it, and drawing new pics of the charas is part of that attempt. These are still just ink, but my intent when I drew them was to color them on the computer. Cheyenne is partly done but I just posted the black and whites here. I spent *so* long trying to get her how I saw her in my mind, and experimented a bunch of different hairstyles before I chose one that fit her.
http://wordsofari.tripod.com/sisters.html

>These two are from a story I was supposed to work on with some other people that never really got off the ground. I did write about my two charas, tho, and I plan to work more with them in the future. Rashelle is the result of a quick sketch that i was rather pleased with. These were done over a year ago.
http://wordsofari.tripod.com/fantasy.html

>This is E, the first character that I drew, colored on the comp, and wrote about. That was a few years ago, and I never finished the story, but it's still in my head and I plan to go back to it.

WOW! Those are SO good! I'd be interested to see how your style has changed, because this style is really interesting. The one on the right reminds me of Rikku a bit, I think because of the hair and also now because of the thong. @_@ I love the hair clip and her backpack. The black outline on them is cool, too, with its varying thicknesses.

My style hasn't changed too much. I've simplified things a bit and draw the eyes a little different. The thick and thin is a real pain actually and takes forever to do. I've slowly gotten away from it so I can keep a regular schedule when I launch. I know Psyth3 has been waiting forever to see this comic go live. Hehe. I'm so slow. ^^;;

here's a new one i whipped up today. I'm going to *determined* to draw my own manga/comic called THE KEEPERS i have the storyline but i gotta do a lot of alterations ^^;;

What's the basis of the story? Or is that confidential at this point :D

die-sama
11-21-2002, 09:19 PM
erm I can seep a little bit out..at least the basic plot :X

ok this is before when humans posessed "magic". the two twins up there possess it ^_~. one twin becomes jealous and takes away the other's soul. the wandering soul feeds off hatred and beings to drains the other twin's magic until this soul contains it all. ^^ battle begins in the realms fights occur. who stole who's magic. and blah blah.
:) they all go after the other twin who they though possessed all the magic and thinks of her as the keeper of the majic. but she's not. who is really the keepers ^_~? is the basic idea and mystery :X sort of...er. yea ^^;;; i might take a different approach on it though.. all the charactesr are influenced by acutal people i know ^_^
ok that sounds corny :X but i'm working on it ^^;; fufufu

Miroku, this bothers me, if your serious about this, please read! You do not demand positive compliments, they will come your way with your talent. It takes a while to home in on your talent and find out what makes a picture look good or bad. You are doing good, it's also you need to work to get yourself better, and that way your art will be loved!I am in no way a professional artist, but I have worked mysels constantly to better tune my skills. I practice everyday and take a art class on every Sat. of which I've been attending for almost 2 years now. My teacher sees much improvement with my skills and I'm happy that he's noticed along with me. I'm happy so far, but I know there's more for me to learn, so much more. Even the manga artists are still learning. If you pick of Yuu Watase's Fuishigi Yugi and Ceres and compare, you can see she learned a lot for Ceres is much better art than Fuishgi! You cannot demand to be recognized, people will recognize you when the time comes. I did not mean to offend you in any way, this is just how I learned!
