Being good to each other is so important, guys.
I wanted to do a Kuragehime/Princess Jellyfish print for Otakon! But I couldn’t decide which outfit to draw Kuranosuke in, so I just did… this…
If there’s one thing I so desperately want to happen in HW it’s Midna to have this moment of like nostalgia and happiness when she sees Link since she believed she’d never see him again after she broke the mirror. But then she’d quickly realize it wasn’t her Link and be surprised and sad. I’VE BEEN AVOIDING HW SPOILERS LIKE THE PLAGUE SO I HAVE NO IDEA IF ANYTHING LIKE IT HAPPENS but please let it happen Zelda gods. If it does I will actually cry so hard ((o(;△;)o))
And then the second picture was a bonus to make myself feel better after thinking about it because I remembered we have the TP dlc costumes and we can all pretend that TP!Link and Midna are reunited and hug and ｡･ﾟ(ﾟﾉT-T)ﾉ
The second picture actually took me a while to get right since I’m not good with interaction pictures and it started out super bad, mostly because I started it out wrong by just scribbling it all together without doing what I usually do. But I fixed it AND DID IT and I’m so happy with it. It took me forever to figure out how to shape Midna’s fused shadow right at angles too and all I have to say is bless concept art pictures.
For a super groovy Throwback Thursday, Google search “atari breakout” and then click on images. Source
So this was the final for my Gesture class, in which we had to design a character. I opted for two characters because its easier for me to develop characters when I’m working with more than one.
I decided to go with a Norse and Turkish girl concept for two reasons. One being that I was already behind on the project and since I’ve already done research on Norse/Viking culture (and already have a folder full of reference), it would be easier on me and I would be able to focus more on researching for the Turkish girl. The second reason was I wanted to create two characters who contrasted. I wanted the different backgrounds, cultures and lifestyles to clearly reflect in the two characters.
The story for these two characters was this:
In the late Medieval Era, a Turkish Nobleman has received a grave threat on his life, his wealth and his family. Paranoid of those around him and unable to trust those anyone, he seeks help from the outside. Due to their famed battle prowess and unwavering loyalty, he convinces and hires a group of Norse merchants to act as his temporary bodyguards until he feels the threat has passed. The youngest merchant, a young woman named Dagny, is put in charge of guarding the Nobleman’s only daughter, Alara. They have a rocky start, mainly due to the language barrier, as well as the vast differences in lifestyle. However, over the months, and even years, the two develop a strong friendship.
Unfortunately, due to time restraints and stress, I do not believe everything is 100% historically accurate (but it is historic fiction, so I think I’m allowed some leeway haha). I had originally wanted the story to take place in the 10th-12th century but hunting down Turkish clothing for that period was a nightmare and the earliest labeled designs I was able to get my hands on were 15th century. I gathered some other designs that I believe might have been earlier, however, I could not find a date for them.
If this was a project I planned to develop further, I would most certainly take the time to research MUCH more and smooth out some of the questionable details. However, I believe it served its purpose in terms of a character design project.
We also had to choose an artist whom are designs were inspired by and I chose Claire Hummel (aka Shoomlah), one of my favorite artists. If you haven’t checked out her stuff, I would recommend it.
i haven’t drawn anything in nearly two weeks and then fat dumb burds
