Sketching Brushes «<—- download link
The two singular brushes that I have been using for sketching lately. Thought I’d share them.
Figuring out her proportions, anatomy, and style really. Don’t know how stylized I want to go, but I am happy with her proportions. Outfit to come later, after I do some research on some important details. Things like bracers, functional tops, how to make a loincloth go around that tail. Yeesh.
I learned a new word a few days ago. Pugnacious. More like Pucknacious, eh? Nevermind.
Sketches to keep myself going during projects. Threw Ligeia in there because her design is anything but final.. I think it’s time to finish off that commission list.
Sketches from tonight while in a call with friends. They were all meant as avatars.
These were really fun because they are an expansion of the cast in the same story Puckette is in (well, work in progress story): First guy is Husk the Ashen Man, and Ligeia the Siren (though she could use a new name).
The story goes, in a heavily folklore influenced fantasy world, humankind’s and the world’s existence is threatened by some vague evil force, take your pick. But humans are too tied up in petty politics, or are generally too incompetent to do anything about it (but they’ll certainly be there to take credit for the whole thing when it’s over).
Four anti-heros, seeing as the world is where they keep their stuff, decide to embark on a jaunt to save the world.
Husk is an Ashen Man, like the germanic story of the first man made from fire and embers of a ash tree. He’s a sort of character that has existed outside of time, speaks his mind (usually unintentional sarcasm), and has a great sense of fashion and interior decorating. He has the voice of a heavy smoker, and his abilities include making wooden constructs/weapons from dead plant matter, and he has a field of entropy around him that corrodes weapons brought against him.
Ligeia (working name, greek for Bright Voice), is a Siren. She has a bubbly personality, is completely flirt-tarded, and she’s tonedeaf. Needless to say she’s not a very good siren, or bard. Still figuring her out, personality wise.
Her abilities include Hydromancy (well, not fortune telling, more like water bending). She is more of a ranged character, like the party wizard.
I can describe Puckette later, and still have room for one more character. Credit to Dpad for the awesome idea exchange while I was drawing.
Decided to completely start over on Puckette for my portfolio, starting with some proper visdev and an eventual final concept. This will be the 4th time I start this character over, help me to do it right this time. Tell me what you like about each one, or offer some suggestions.
This time around, the fuan will have proper goat/deer ears, rather than weird avatar elf ears.
