I'm proud to announce my first request. If you have a request in the future, this is the type of thing you can expect to recieve though I will have a bit of practise in seeing whether I can make the image cleaner, I may even come back to this and ink the lines before rescanning. If you do request an image then I would say to try to find someone who can draw over the lines in photoshop and colour it in but I may see if I can teach myself to do that.
This image was drew by me but the whole character was designed by Kain Grimm and he maintains the copyright of such.
This was fun. Kain was very good in his references, having designed his characters within a game, he was able to give me visual references for the hair and clothes. I was a little on my own in terms of facial features body shape, expression and pose but I had an idea of what wanted from discussions. I knew he was inspired by Japenese RPGs (e.g. final fantasy), that he wanted youngish almost elf like features while not looking too androgynous. I had extrapolated that this was most likely a main protagonist as I got a sense it was one of his favourite characters. From there I gave the character a youngish look but still looking quite strong. The face I gave soft and boyish while at the same time a strong jaw line. The pose, I went for: signalling a child to get behind him as he steps forward to defend them from an enemy he has just noticed. The pose partially inspired by the fact I weren't sure what to do with the left hand.
I have to say the pinstripe trousers was great fun (and not just because of the amount of effort I put into the crotch area). Rarely in drawings do you get to use controur lines.
