So my doodling thread is kinda old and I don't really have the time to casually doodle anymore, I decided to follow Pumpkin's lead and make a new drawing thread, marking a new drawing period. Nowadays, if I want to draw, I have to sit down and focus for a longer period of time. Might as well try some new stuff, eh?

Still, I've pretty much given up on trying to draw anything besides characters, so I'm dedicating this thread to just that - artwork of characters from my writing.

So the first pic is very experimental for me. It's the first proper group shot that I've ever done (that little Crosswords fiasco doesn't count). It includes all the major characters from the first part in the Fool's Journey novel that I'm writing. When I get my phone back and can pretend my light is a lightbox, I might actually ink it and color. For now, here's the sketch:

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Skanuj.jpeg

So I've experimented a bit with some of the clothing - besides Griff (the one on the left in the central trio), all characters with visible clothing have new duds, so that was interesting. Adding a little braid to Ofelia's hair was kind of a challenge, but one that I think paid off. Also, I kinda wish I had bigger pieces of paper, because the detail on the characters in the back really needs some work.

Let me know what you guys think.

I'd love to see you take some ink and color to this, It's cover art material.

Definitely. Some of my favourite cover arts have been ensemble cast covers, like Tales of Xillia etc.

I can give it a try once I get my phone back! For now, I'll just try to sketch some more stuff when i have the time

Can i ask, why is it that its often one artist who does line art and a separate one who does colour?

Ive noticed this on comic book credits as well as with the artists on this site. I reckon you could do some bitchin' colours yourself Fynn. Im no artist but I've got a strong eye for colour.....just sayin'

Fynn

Did some sketches. No big undertaking, for now. Here's some faces in pencil.

First up, some old characters. Here are Ian and Freddie. Think I still got it.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_30.jpeg

And here's Jess. I think this is actually the most accurate portrait I've ever done of her, despite this being a rough sketch.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_31.jpeg

And here's two characters from a short I'm currently working on. Jacob was easy because he kind of follows a template I have for young, slender characters, but Drew was very hard to nail down due to his body type that I really never had a chance to draw.

I'm really loving those sketches right there.

Thanks guys. I actually think I may draw some more stuff today.

Formalhaut
05-31-2016, 05:45 PM
Good once again Fynn! I love the style of sketches - it sort of gives images a raw, unprocessed look.

I'm not sure if I'm only noticing it now, but Freddie (the guy on the right, right?) looks rather much like you, only with a thicker beard.

Fynn
05-31-2016, 05:46 PM
That's Ian and that is so untrue! Why does everyone say that! XD The hair and eye colors are different, and I have smaller eyes, not to mentioned he is seriously overweight, while I'm only slightly overweight :p

Formalhaut
05-31-2016, 05:53 PM
You need to label your characters, better :p

And hey, if I saw the entire body, then I probably wouldn't make the comparison. But you've got to admit, from a headshot only, you look similar.

Fynn
05-31-2016, 05:54 PM
I don't see it. Aside from our love of flannel.

Formalhaut
05-31-2016, 05:59 PM
Moving on, do you draw many male characters with beards, or was it just specific to that particular story?

Fynn
05-31-2016, 06:00 PM
I won't lie, I like to draw facial hair a lot. No particular reason. I just think it looks nice and fills up some empty space on the face. It also lets me not try too hard on the face outline, as that's a tricky part. So apart from being aesthetically pleasing to me, it kind of like a cheat.

Fynn
05-31-2016, 06:55 PM
Here are Sam and Farrah, two new characters from that as of yet unfinished story

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_34.jpeg

05-31-2016, 07:00 PM
I like Farrah's design a lot!

Fynn
05-31-2016, 07:03 PM
Thanks! I was trying to go for a bit more of a Middle Eastern type with her. Whether I succeeded or not, I also like how her design turned out!

Pumpkin
05-31-2016, 07:05 PM
Yeah I can see it. The face shape with that hair and the glasses and everything just really work well together

Formalhaut
05-31-2016, 07:47 PM
Agreed with Pumpkin; I really loved Farrah's hair and the way you did the glasses. She looks rather bookish. :D

Galuf
05-31-2016, 08:11 PM

A door with a mouth sound scary as fuck

Fynn

Drew, uh, Drew again with his dog! First time I ever drew a dog. I think he turned out pretty decent.

So I'm super excited because I'll be a game master for a D&D campaign with our friends this summer! So I've devided to draw some of the important NPCs I have in mind! (People who have RP'd with me - you'll see some familiar faces, as I've recycled some of my characters I had in mind for this as my characters in the RPs :p)

So first up, we have Eld. A cute, sheltered little elf mage with a big destiny on his shoulders.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_38.jpeg

Fynn
06-07-2016, 07:53 PM
So here's a character familiar to Brave Vesperians! Nubrik's a brilliant but lazy cleric who finds the overall atmosphere of his order a bit stuffy. I expect him and Eld to develop a bromance of some sort.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_40.jpeg

Fynn
06-08-2016, 10:26 AM
Up next we have Gerda, a righteous paladin who finds the machinations of her order to be more and more at odds with her conscience. She gets an important haircut later, the face is a bit inconsistent between the two, but this is still just a rough sketch and I haven't nailed down her face yet. I wanted someone that looked determined and fierce, yet at the same time very pure.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_41.jpeg

You have a real gift for character design. That's going to save you some money on art commissions for that book.

Keep it up! :D

Fynn
06-08-2016, 11:07 AM
Haha, yeah, I'm not gonna be the one to illustrate it. 1, I don't feel confident enough in my art and 2, when publishing the traditional route, you really don't get much say in regards to the cover, that's the job of marketing.

Still, thanks! :D

Fynn
06-08-2016, 11:24 AM
Here's another familiar face. Victor the half-orc is an imposing yet shy man who travels along with his brother.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_43.jpeg

And here's the brother. Alder is a half-elf who is incredibly proficient with a bow. While charismatic and nice on the surface, his friendly face is a front for something darker

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_44.jpeg

06-08-2016, 11:50 AM

Fynn
06-08-2016, 11:54 AM

The current mugs are from the D&D thing that is gonna happen this summer

06-08-2016, 12:23 PM
Who's this Eld then that Nubrik will hang out with? Sorry, it's probably me being thick as always.

Fynn
06-08-2016, 12:43 PM
Well, he's the first companion my players will encounter and he pretty much jump-starts the plot. So he's a cute little plot device, essentially.

Fynn
06-08-2016, 04:50 PM
next up we have Myahlee, the elven rogue. She acts all distressed at first, begging the party for help, only to turn around and back stab them when she gets what she wants. Motivated by gold and other pleasures of the earthly kind, she trusts no one but herself

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_45.jpeg

Fynn
08-18-2016, 08:06 PM
So we recently managed to start that D&D campaign and it was a great success! The character portraits I provided for both the player characters and the NPC companions really helped with the immersion, not to mention the players themselves being wonderful! We all had great fun and hope we can pick up where we left off soon!

Sorry these are photos, but I'm having trouble having my scanner work with my computer lately. This time around I used exclusively colored pencils, no markers or pens, and I'm pretty satisfied with the results!

So first, here are the player characters

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_47.jpeg

NAME: Miah
RACE: Human
AGE: 27
CLASS: Ranger
ALIGNMENT: Chaotic Good

Miah is a victim of circumstance. A daughter of a fisherman, she is accidentally present at the murder of a very important political figure, and since she had a bloody knife in her hand (she was gutting fish, btw), the blame was put on her. So she spent the next couple of years in the NEverwinter Woods where some elves took pity on her and taught her how to use a bow and arrow. She also has a wolf companion named Wolf.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_54.jpeg

NAME: Elseah
RACE: Moon Elf
AGE: 26
CLASS: Bard
ALIGNMENT: Chaotic Good

An elf who is a close friend of Miah's. She grew up in a secluded village and was great at playing her Swarovski-studded lute, bute recently lost the ability to play it, so she goes on a journey to find out why. Oh, and find out where her mother went, too.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_52.jpeg

NAME: Volund
RACE: Human
AGE: 26
CLASS: Paladin
ALIGNMENT: Chaotic Good (see a pattern?)

A thick-skulled man with amnesia who was taken into a monastery despite believing in no god. Still, very skilled in combat, though he remembers nothing that happened before five years ago and has very limited grasp of traditional paladin abilities, he is the party's main tank that they really couldn't do without.



Now for the NPC companions. So a couple things first: (1) yes, I reuse a lot of assets, so if you've been following my art or my RP characters, you might see familiar faces, (2) there will be women later on. There are more male NPCs than female simply because they are all romanceable and two of my three players prefer men to women, so the math does itself. The girls will be introduced in the story when we next meet, though, so I should have some more portraits then!

And now, in the order in which they were encountered:

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_55.jpeg

NAME: Eld (short to something completely incomprehensible to humans)
RACE: Moon Elf
AGE: 18
CLASS: Wizard
ALIGNMENT: Lawful Good

One of Mystra's Chosen, needs to go on a Pilgrimage along the Sword Coast because of his gift. All his life he's been stuck in a tower as his caretakers prepared him for the journey. Now the time has come for the party to escort him where he needs to go. Incredibly naive and pretty-faced to the point that he gets mistaken for a girl on many occasions, prompting the party to give him the nickname "our elven maiden".

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_46.jpeg

NAME: Byron
RACE: Tiefling (humans with demon features due to planar anomalies)
AGE: Unknown, looks to be in his early thirties
CLASS: Assassin
ALIGNMENT: Unknown (presumed to be Chaotic Evil, but who can really tell?)

The party encounters this jokey, lewd tiefling and killer-for-hire , when they lose their way and get trapped in a battle arena. He first joins them because he needs a party to participate in the battles get out, but it soon turns out he's actually a general of the Evil EmpireTM and kidnaps Eld (who later escapes, somehow). Gets called a Devil by many villagers because of his features, and as a result he craves any attention he can get. He also mentions how he's pretty much open to anyone sexually, because most people find him repulsive. The rest (usually people with some kind of demon man fetish) - he usually just takes what he can get.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_53.jpeg

NAME: Nubrik
RACE: Human
AGE: 26
CLASS: Cleric
ALIGNMENT: Chaotic Good

A member of Neverwinter's Lionsguard, Nubrik is a rebelious but skilled cleric who often gets in trouble with his monastery. This gets him and the party thrown in jail at one point as they get caught up in a conspiracy that they thankfully soon unravel and Nubrik leaves the monastery for good, offering the party his much needed healing and support skills.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_51.jpeg

NAME: Adler
RACE: Half-elf
AGE: 33
CLASS: Ranger
ALIGNMENT: Neutral Good

The man that the party was told by their father figure person at the beginning to seek out in case something happened to him. He's a member of the mysterious Harpers and was sent to not only protect the party, but also guide them on the path that the Harpers intended for them. A friendly and amicable fellow, he is an excellent shot that you really shouldn't cross.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/image_50.jpeg

NAME: Victor
RACE: Half-orc
AGE: 21
CLASS: Barbarian
ALIGNMENT: Neutral Good

Adler's half-brother, a half-orc with a monstrous face disguising a gentle, artistic soul. He often sings and plays his lute, but that doesn't make him any less formidable in combat. He is, however, very timid, speaking very rarely and blushing often, especially around a certain someone he has a secret crush on. Luckily, his brother is there to do the talking for him.

Are we to assume that he started drinking after being kicked out of his last post? :p

I like seeing recurring characters though, and they are some beautiful drawings.

Hey, the D&D party is meeting up today, so I drew portraits for two new characters! :D

First up is Gerda Leonheart. She's a lawful good human paladin, a member of the illustrious Order of the Radiant Heart under her father Freyr. She is torn internally as her strong sense of duty tells her she has to fulfil her orders, but she's frustrated that her dad is only giving her basic tasks.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_6174.jpg

And here we have Cynthia, a lawful good tiefling sorceress, who is actually Byron's sister, but unlike him, she is very much a morally upstanding citizen, devoting her life to helping those in need, but is also just as amicable and charismatic as him.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_6175.jpg

The colour pencils give your creations much more life! What brand are you using?

Fynn
11-22-2016, 06:49 PM
Derwent Artist 72. I picked them because they had a lot of colors and weren't too expensive, and people online said they were very decent for their price. They're easily the best pencils I've ever used.

Rocket Edge
11-22-2016, 08:11 PM
They look very nice. Derwent are an excellent lead pencil but I've yet to try their colour pencils. Picked up Prismacolour pencils recently so hopefully they will do me in good stead.

Fynn
01-31-2017, 08:37 PM
So I'm working on a fanfic for SMT: Devil Summoner that's mostly its own thing since it takes place in New York so it's accessible to people completely unfamiliar to the source material, but also with lots of nods to the series. The story follows two detective brothers who have this agency that's a regular PI agency on the surface but they actually deal with demons and lots of supernatural cases.

Here's Jack Goldstein, the older brother who is the more charismatic and outgoing of the two, a free spirit, if you will. He's happy to use new technologies for Demon Summoning and stuff, and he's great at reading people.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6376.jpg

Benny Goldstein is the younger - yet taller and bigger - brother. He's going through some personal drama at the start, and in general has been pretty unlucky throughout all his life. However, he's kind, calm, and dependable. Because of past trauma, he doesn't use a COMP or any other demon summoning device, but because of a certain... event in his childhood he has supernatural powers that allow him to transport him and his brother to the Dark Realm (a demonic version of NY). He can also become crazy strong and use magic while there.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6377.jpg

Jasvinder "Jazz" Singh is an indie singer who is also the first client the Goldstein brothers get visited by in the story. Her close friend disappeared in mysterious circumstances and she wants Jack and Benny to find out what happened to him.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6379.jpg

Your drawings look as great as ever

You seem to like the bigger, squarer face shape with glasses, I've noticed :p

Fynn
01-31-2017, 08:41 PM
Art imitating life, since I have a big square head and glasses XD

Formalhaut
01-31-2017, 08:46 PM
I like the look of Jasvinder Singh! She seems like an interesting client to take on. They are all good sketches, though Benny looks familiar!

Fynn
01-31-2017, 08:48 PM
(Jazz actually shares a surname with an important character from Soul Hackers, so I hope it'll give people who've played it some ideas :D)

Freya
01-31-2017, 08:55 PM
THE BENNY ONE.

I feel your face shape on him is really spot on. Not that you're bad at it previously, but his really good. I think the angle maybe? He's slightly looking down or his head is. I dunno. I like it.

Laddy
01-31-2017, 10:19 PM
Your style has a definite anime influence, but with a cool sketchy and storybookesque quality, evocative of the Final Fantasy Tactics or IX style, but less cutesy. It's very visually appealing.

Fynn
02-07-2017, 08:38 PM
So I drew a couple of characters from my novel! They're a bunch of mysterious characters that appear way later, like book 2. A lot of stuff about them is thus completely spoilery, so I'll just say some stuff without going into much detail. They're all high-schoolers. Mysterious high-schoolers.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6411.jpg

DEE

Conjurer (can use ether to conjure up elemental spells like fireballs, etc.)

A character that has connections to one of the main characters' pasts. Happy and helpful on the surface, she may have some ulterior motives...

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6412.jpg

ART

Sentinel (uses ether to conjure shields to protect himself and those close to him)

A school jock before "stuff happened", now he's pretty scarred from it all. Pretty stand-offish, but he's devoted to his cause.


http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6413.jpg

LUNA

Mystic (can heal and has visions of the future)

Serene on the surface, but she's actually pretty crazy and bloodthirsty.


http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6414.jpg

"RAT"

Channeller (uses ether to communicate with animals and enhance his senses and physical capabilities to match those of animals)

He actually chose that name for himself. A petty misanthrope who only trusts animals. He's devoted to his human posse, though.

Freya
02-07-2017, 08:51 PM
Well RAT rhymes with CAT. :colbert:

I like ART, he has more facial details and I enjoy that.

Fynn
02-07-2017, 08:53 PM
Well, Luna has more facial details too :colbert:

Anyway, here's Siegfried, AKA Ziggy. He's the main protagonist's brother and the de facto protagonist of book 2. He's kinda absent in book 1 and kinda not? Again, everything about him is a spoiler.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6415.jpg

Freya
02-07-2017, 08:58 PM
SPOILERS D: Dangit.

I do have to say I do enjoy Rat's actual rat like features. It gives him more personality.

Luna makes me think of a predator with how you did her eye placement/style.

Fynn
02-07-2017, 08:59 PM
Her face was meant to be Fox-like

Freya
02-07-2017, 09:07 PM
Well then you got it spot on then!

Formalhaut
02-07-2017, 09:55 PM
I think Dee's my favourite of the new art you've produced! I like the framing and the hair shape, it's very unique.

Fynn
02-08-2017, 06:02 AM
Her look was mostly inspired by Xion!

Formalhaut
02-08-2017, 03:48 PM
I can sorta see it, but it isn't obvious at all without you telling me. Which I think is a good thing: don't want your inspirations to be too on the nose.

Pumpkin
02-08-2017, 04:17 PM

Fynn
02-10-2017, 08:01 PM

If you followed my previous thread or read my stuff, you may recognize some of them, but they're purposefully done different because there's a time-skip somewhere along the way

ALICE

Childhood friend of Griff, one of the main protagonists, she's an energetic girl with great knowledge, intelligence and wit. Her clairvoyance gives her tremendous natural empathy, as well as putting her in an important leadership position post-time skip.

Difference: Grows out her hair post-timeskip - she had a pixie cut before that!


MIKE

Sentinel

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6434.jpg

Another childhood friend of Griff's and Alice's fiancÚ, Mike can be blunt, but he's devoted to his friends and surprisingly intuitive. A joker on the surface, he's actually stupidly reliable.

Difference: that modern quaff thing doesn't happen to his hair until the Time skip


DANIEL

Shifter (can change objects and his body parts into other materials and objects)

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6437.jpg

Daniel is a Thaumaturge, which basically means he's the source of all magic of his specialty. The oldest character in the group (even older than he physically appears), he serves as the Team Dad, voice of reason, and booster of morale. He's also crazy strong, built like a truck, and will mercilessly mow down anyone threatening his "family"

Difference: grows out an angry moustache!

So I've decided to do something a bit more challenging this time - full-body sketches of Jack and Benny! I never do this lately so of course the proportions are out of wack, for which I apologize. It was still super fun to do!

So here's Jack Goldstein with two low-level demons, Jack Frost and Pixie, who are prominent characters in the story (yes, I intentionally partnered up a character named Jack with Jack Frost). He's also holding a gun-shaped COMP that was used by summoned in the past (as in, other Devil Summoner games) though his demon summoning program of choice comes in the form of an iPhone app.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6446.jpg

Next up is Benny Goldstein. Notice the lack of demons. He refuses to become a summoner because of past traumas involving demons. A result of those traumas are the tattoos on his forearm that give him demonic powers and the abilities to transport between the Dark Realm and normal world. He's also kind of bitter since he's undergoing a divorce and stuff.

Freya
02-13-2017, 09:02 PM
Hey you know how you get better at those proportions? DRAWING THEM MORE :D :D :D

I like the iphone app demons. Makes the picture more than just a full body portrait :D

Fynn
02-13-2017, 09:08 PM
So just because I can't draw Benny around demons you don't like him anymore? For shame

Formalhaut
02-13-2017, 09:34 PM
Oh, these are really nice! I like full-body pictures, as I love seeing how their personality is affected through their clothing. I really like Jack's look, in particular.

Fynn
02-13-2017, 09:37 PM

But Benny's still pretty cuddly, right?

Pumpkin
02-14-2017, 01:44 AM
Looks super good! Jack's head looks a teeny bit too big for his body, I think, but it's minor. Benny looks awesome!

Fynn
02-14-2017, 07:06 AM
The may be a bit too big, but I think the biggest issue with him is that his legs are short. But the again, I did want to give him short legs in proportion to the rest of his body to add more character XD Dtill, doesn't change the fact that on this particular drawing, it happened by accident

Fynn
02-14-2017, 06:07 PM
No drawings today since I'm still kind of fleshing out the idea for a design for one specific legacy character in my head

Should get it in by the end of the week, though!

Fynn
03-02-2017, 09:15 PM
So, something different.

Did a quick full body sketch of one of the main characters from my book, Griff. Experimenting a bit with a less detailed, cutesier style. Because I can only draw so many soulful eyes at a time, guys

Fynn

Managed to squeeze in a little doodle in between serious adult stuff today!

This is Sergei, a character I haven't drawn in a while. He's basically the deuteragonist of my Path to Eden story that's currently on hiatus, though I'll probably redo it someday. He's an older Russian professor that gets chosen by a different alien faction than the protagonist in order to kind of disrupt stuff. He's one of my favorite characters out of the ones I've conceived - he's one of my eldest (pushing 70), he's gay, highly intelligent and very hard to read. His cunning nature kind of makes it hard to trust him for the first half of the story that I've conceived so far, but he's actually a very caring, passionate imdividual that nevertheless always tries to look at everything from a balanced perspective. Characters from the story are meant to represent specific aspects of humanity - Sergei represents Truth.

Here's another character from the Devil Summoner fanfic that I'm totally writing still!

(no seriously guys March has been insane for me and it's a miracle that I had the drive to sit down to do ANYTHING creative)

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6517.jpg

Blogger, painter, and notorious street artist going by the ever creative pseudonym 'L', Lewis, or Lou, as his friends call him, is not a Summoner. And yet Jack and Benny encounter him on numerous occasions both in the Human Realm and the Dark Realm. He seems very knowledgeable of the nature of both humans and demons, though for some reason he and Benny cannot get along at all. Slightly pretentious and a bit of a hedonist, there's much more to Lou than meets the eye.


... I'm sure you know EXACTLY who this is if you've ever played SMT :p I specifically changed the appearance, since that changes a lot throughout the series, but I'm not being remotely subtle about it, so if you can tell, enjoy this take :D


Also, those tattoos were A NIGHTMARE!

Freya
03-23-2017, 08:13 PM
what is SMT?

Also yeah, tattoos are a pain if you ever plan on redrawing him too!

Fynn
03-23-2017, 08:15 PM
Shin Megami Tensei! I'm writing a fanfic in the world of Devil Summoner, which is part of the SMT series. Persona is also part of the SMT series, FYI, and it's even in the Devil Summoner continuity so that's a point of reference :monster:

Pumpkin
03-23-2017, 08:29 PM
The tattoos my have been a pain but it's good detailing though!

Fynn
03-23-2017, 10:20 PM
Since I really like the design and concept, as I'd never really attempted a character like this before, I got hooked and drew two little sketchies with chibi-Lou in other typically hipster outfits. One is him satisfied with his "edgy" street art, in the other he's vaping - for inspiration

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6518.jpg

I can't really explain why, but I'm really proud of this design. There's something so satisfying about it.

Formalhaut
03-24-2017, 07:55 AM
Hmm, yeah, Lou, he seems like a nice guy.

I can see why you like the design. I particularly like the first original drawing. I love the loose suspenders and the glasses which at first give him a formal taste, before the vest and tattoos kinda swing the pendulum back. There's a clash of fashion there, and even a clash of eyes with his heterochromia. There's a few interesting takes from it, to be honest.

Don't March was crazy for me as well what with starting a new job. I've only had time to write a bit on my blog.

Fynn
03-24-2017, 08:01 AM
Yep, definitely a nice guy! Nothing fishy ever goes on around him. Nope!

Fynn
03-24-2017, 08:12 AM
Bah, I'm gonna go ahead and say it, since only a small part of my audience has ever played SMT

Lou is Lucifer. He is an important character throughout the series who is far less unambiguously evil than you'd think. Of course, his characterization largely depends on what alignment you choose, but most of the time he's characterized as someone rebelling against the status quo who wishes to free humanity from its chains. He's the epitome of the Chaos alignment, so if you're Law-aligned, he won't be very friendly to you.

So far he's shown up as!

Louis Cyphre (the vast majority of times this is his pseudonym though he's looked different)

http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/megamitensei/images/9/93/RKvKA-BlondMan.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20090604111310


Most recently, he's taken a female guise, including Louisa Ferre

http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/megamitensei/images/d/d3/Louisa.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20100413231100

And Hikaru!

http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130412021648/megamitensei/images/4/40/Hikaru_SMTIV.png



Honestly, making him a hipster/street artist felt like it fit the setting and the character's general theme. We'll see how well I can implement it in the story itself though >.>

Formalhaut
03-24-2017, 09:38 PM
Honestly, one thing I've learned in the SMT games in IV is that if you go Neutral, both sides take offence at you, so you're kinda stuck between a rock and a hard place when you take a third option.

Fynn
03-24-2017, 09:41 PM
Still depends on the game. Aside from IV, usually Lucifer is a pretty swell guy, ironically

Formalhaut
03-24-2017, 09:48 PM
Why did they decide to switch to the totally different Hikaru? Unless Hikaru means something in Japanese?

Fynn
03-24-2017, 09:53 PM
Basically, they switched it to make it a bit less obvious. But it's still not some random name - Hikaru has the same root kanji as Hikari, which means light. With Lucifer basically meaning "light-bearer", you can kinda see what they were going for.

Formalhaut
03-24-2017, 09:55 PM
To be fair she was shady as smurf as soon as I first met her.

Fynn
03-24-2017, 09:55 PM
She was just interested in you guys!


To be fair, that's still subtler than Louisa's "I have no love for humans but I cannot abandon them" line.


Yeah, the idea I have for Lou is kind of more human in my head. I guess he's just at a stage where he thinks he's got time and decides to just enjoy the human life and screw people around just a little before resuming his plot to lay siege to the Heavens

Fynn
03-24-2017, 09:59 PM
Oooh, forgot to mention! The right eye is red only in the Dark Realm. When he's in the human world, they're both blue.

Formalhaut
03-24-2017, 10:01 PM
That reminds me of the T.V show 'Lucifer' which is where the Devil himself grows bored being the Lord of Hell and abandons his kingdom to run a nightclub. Somehow he gets involved with the LAPD and assists a dectective in crime cases.

That kinda 'I want to be among the humans and live life' vibe reminded me of the show. I've never seen it, but I've heard about it and it seems interesting, if kinda wacky. 'The Devil fights crime!'

Fynn
03-24-2017, 10:06 PM
Well, he's still not really goody-goody, honestly. I can kind of see him seeing the potential in Jack and trying to get him on his side. But aside from that, his art is kind of how he tries to spread his godless might-makes-right philosophy. So he's dialing it back a bit, I guess.

Still, this is a fanfic to Devil Summoner, not mainline SMT, so I want to make it much less gloomy and more fun (since Devil Summoner/Persona is the timeline where the worst stuff doesn't happen and people live relatively normal lives), so it makes sense for Lou to be a bit more, laid back, I guess?

Fynn
03-25-2017, 08:08 PM
Here's Aida MacNamara!

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6522.jpg

Aida's a newly employed assistant and Jack and Benny's office. Spunky and optimistic, Aida quickly accepts all the weird stuff happening around her when she starts working for the Goldsteins. She's happy to experience something new because she's still looking for her way in life.

It was fun drawing a full-body pic of a woman since I haven't done that in a while, and though the proportions are still a bit off (Lou is so far the pinnacle of my drawing proportions), I still think this is the best I've done!

Also, I notice that, with Aida's curves and Lou's muscles, my characters are becoming a bit more overtly sexy, and I'm not sure how I feel about that 0_o

Formalhaut
03-25-2017, 09:36 PM
Ooooh I really like her! You didn't even need to tell me about her personality, as it was very clear on the paper. She's probably my favourite character, she seems really spunky!

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6528.jpg

Gave him a dress shirt and pants this time to make him a little more elegant and to show off his muscles a bit (the turtle neck kinda made him look fat XD). I also like that he has sneakers - they were a happy accident, actually.

Also, another new pose! I dare say I'm getting better at these full-body pics!

If you want something that isn't to do with your stuff, maybe you could draw Tristan from BV? I'd love to see a full-body feature! :jess:

Alternatively, you could draw everyone again but in their Swimwear DLC costumes.

Fynn
03-27-2017, 09:17 PM
Thank you kindly! :D It's always nice to hear that you got someone motivated to do more art! We need more art!

Anyway, here's a quick sketch of Jack

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6533.jpg

Since this is pretty much right after Benny, you'll notice one thing - Benny and Jack don't really look similar. This is not any foreshadowing or anything, they're not secretly not brothers. There are two main reasons for this. 1) I wanted to showcase the differences to their personality through design quirks (including the fact that Benny looks older even though he's younger), and 2) Art imitating life. My brother and I don't look much alike aside from hair and eye color, as well as general build and face shape. I always found that super interesting, so I decided to implement it here. So both Jack and Benny have green eyes, wavy, chestnut hair, and big noses, and that's it, they're completely different looking otherwise, by design :p

Pumpkin
03-27-2017, 09:21 PM
It's neat to incorporate their personalities within the designs, I think

Fynn
03-27-2017, 09:23 PM
I mean, I hope you can tell Jack's the free spirit, while Benny is responsible and neat! :p

Chaz and Alex were essentially human guinea pigs and now Chaz has lost the ability to feel most non-extreme emotions, so he's super chill but like... TOO chill

Well I mean, you know I'm bi, so do all the people. Showing skin for everyone!

I'm actually impressed you're taking on the request, as I was partly joking, but I'm now genuinely interested in how you draw people without clothes.

I also hope you're taking on my Tristan request, and apologise for how it doesn't match how I imagine him in my dreams. :love:

Fynn
03-28-2017, 05:46 AM
Don't worry, I'll draw Tristan ;) Shame you have such little faith in me, though! :mad2:

And yeah, swimsuits are actually a good idea because 1) I've never drawn people showing that much skin before (Lou is probably showing off the most skin ever) and 2) it's good anatomy practice. So I'll probably work on that. Might do a group beach shot just to make it more fun and less sexy (you dirty man :p), but I'm not sure I have a big enough piece of paper to make it work. I can already tell Lou is gonna be hard since his tattoos do go way further beyond that tank top :/


Heck, maybe I'll just draw swimsuit chibis, then :p

Wanted to draw something more dynamic, so here's Jack brandishing a machete! (Also, a shotgun in the other hand but you can barely see it, sadly)

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6542.jpg

There's a reason for this, though! It's not like I just gave him a machete because it's cool. In SMT, in most cases your main character can only summon demons with their COMP, but they can't use magic. They can use two types of attacks though, sword and gun, because different demons are weak against different attack types, so they're equipped with both. Hence, shotgun and machete for Jack.

In the way older games, like SMT 1 or Soul Hackers, you also always get a heroine who can use magic. In this case, that's Benny - due to a mysterious event from his past, he's kind of in-between the regular world and the Dark Realm, so he has magic and other demon powers. That's why he doesn't use any weapon - he just powers his punches to punch demons into oblivion

Pumpkin
03-28-2017, 07:44 PM

Not my type, but it's a good pose. He has powerful looking legs

Fynn
03-28-2017, 07:50 PM
Yeah, had to increase EVERYONE's leg volume so they wouldn't look weirdly unproportoonal anymore. The pants may be too tight tho :/

He loves kittens. He just tries to keep a stiff upper lip about it.

Fynn
04-08-2017, 04:03 PM
And it's done! In keeping with Jack's warm and happy color palette, Benny's most prominent color is green! It's a color I associate with him in general. In the Dark Realm both his eyes and his tattoos glow a vivid green (as opposed to somebody else's red)

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6612.jpg

The shirt was really hard! :onoes: But also pretty satisfying. Also, I gave you guys this option. I asked for it. So.

Okay, eyes a new character. Can't really say much about Delilah that isn't a spoiler... hmm... I guess you could say, she's not a client? :p Benny encounters her during some group meetings later on. The two develop a unique bond

First up: casual Jack giving you a smolder

The other is a larger project that i plan to color tomorrow! Jack and Benny and a whole party of demons assembled! Looks like shaggy Jack is here to stay :p

Thanks! Movie cover was about what I was going for. I wonder how the colors will turn out!

If you're curious, the demons in this pic (from left to right) are Cerberus, Raiho (basically Jack Frost cod playing as Raidou Kuzunoha), High Pixie and Gozuki.

Fynn
04-10-2017, 09:45 PM
Okay, so the group shot coloring is still going to take a while. In the meantime - doodles!

First up, we have a bored Jack. Yes, he's a smoker.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6649.jpg

Next up, Celia, Benny's ex-wife, her jimmies clearly rustled

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6652.jpg

Okay, the following three images all follow the theme of "longing" to a certain degree! :p This was purely accidental.

First, we have Benny and Delilah's aforementioned "unique relationship"

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6648.jpg

Now here's Jack, reaching for a mysterious disembodied hand

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6651.jpg

And lastly, Benny's fantasy of reuniting with his ex. Spoilers: not very likely.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6650.jpg


And just to end this post on a lighter note, I'm working on then seimsuit thing! :D I think I'll end up doing s full beach pic with all the characters, but for now I'll just do some concept sketches! Today, I have Jack in trunks!

Thanks! :D

I mean, I expect drawing every day for more than a week now would do something

EDIT: Actually, just counted - non-stop drawing for two weeks yesterday. Actually started even three days before that but there was one day without a drawing then. So far, then, it has been 14 consecutive days of drawing. Don't know if I'll manage to draw anything today since I'll be home late, but here's hoping for 15 and more!

This wasn't even intentional tbh. I didn't set out to draw a picture a day. It just happened!

Fynn
04-11-2017, 09:10 PM
So JAck knows demons need to be disciplined if you want them to be nice (oh don't worry, Pixie's turn is coming)

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6668.jpg

Also, today in the street I saw an outfit that totally inspired me! Dude was wearing this red wool sweater that was also a hoodie? Idk why but I thought it'd be a perfect fit for Benny!

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6669.jpg

Fynn
04-12-2017, 10:27 PM
Right, so today I've been feeling really under the weather and the drawings turned out pretty meh because of it, I think. They feel kinda half-assed and I couldn't get the pencil do do what I wanted it to do. But here are the things. It is what it is.

First: Jack is not a morning person. Find the cat.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6670.jpg

Also, decided to practice the faces of the girls from the story that I've drawn so far.

First up, Celia, Benny's ex-wife, in a light pink sweater which you can't see because this is not colored

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6671.jpg

Now it's time for Bailey who has really light eyebrows!

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6672.jpg

Next up is Aida, with her hair styled slightly differently! She likes to keep things interesting

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6673.jpg

Jazz with her sly eyes and subtle snake motif.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6674.jpg

And Delilah. Not gonna lie, she's probably my favorite design of the girls because she looks so different. I like her slight dimples, nose, and jaw shape. I'm not even ashamed to say the main idea behind her design was "mature and sexy". I think I did a pretty good job with that!

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6675.jpg


To finish this off, some Benny. It looks like Benny's become a kind of unofficial model for me now, since whenever I come up with a new outfit, he gets to present it.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6677.jpg

And another doodle for the swimsuit collection. Sorry other Benny got in the way of the lower half, Formy! You'll get the full view later.

I really want to see some different art from you.

I get this.. animal feeling from you? but furry ones? Like Benny reminds me of a cuddley bear. They all seem like mammals.

I'd like to see a more reptilian looking characters. Am I sounding sane here?

Formalhaut
04-13-2017, 06:29 PM
I'd like to see a more reptilian looking characters. Am I sounding sane here?

What, you mean the plot twist isn't that they're all lizard people?

Fynn
04-13-2017, 07:03 PM
I do actually always have an animal motif in mind when designing a character! They're mostly mammals but I guess that's because mammals are easier to empathize with? Idk.

In any case, Jack is, of course, a cat. Benny, on the other hand, is actually a wolf in my mind. Aida is the bear, though that's more in temperament that outward design. Bailey is an owl whole Delilah is a crow, so not mammals, and neither is Jazz - her motif is a snake. Though I kinda had the more positive qualities of a snake in mind, if that makes sense? Think Riddel from Chrono Cross. Celia has a dog motif, while Lou has, of course, goats. Because, what else?

Fynn
04-13-2017, 09:35 PM
Had a humongous headache today so I only managed the three drawings you're about to see, but I'm at least glad that I got to the point that I can actuallly make a decent full body doodle in little time

So I know some of you have been asking for Benny in a tux. Well, your wish has been granted. Now don't tell me I don't listen to you guys.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6679.jpg

Next up, Delilah in business attire, having an important conversation. She's a serious career person.

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6678.jpg

And lastly, someone totally different. Talking to Karifean recently, I was reminded of the VN idea I have. This is Geoff, one of the characters from that idea. Before you ask, Freya: panda.

Fynn
04-15-2017, 06:17 AM
Okay, actually got it to work!

Was super tired and headachy yesterday but I managed to draw some stuff!

First up is shaggy Jack. So I don't know why but I just really like this design so it stuck. I still don't know what happens to him, but I know something has to now at a certain point. So that's an interesting type of story planning.

(Also, Freya, in keeping with that conversation, while regular Jack is a cat, shaggy Jack is a lion)

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6681.jpg

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6683.jpg

And here's our swimsuit model for today (yesterday?) - Delilah. Women bodies are harder to draw for me, but I guess I just need practice. Still, pretty happy with how she turned out!

http://i1145.photobucket.com/albums/o509/Paplyk/IMG_6684.jpg



Also, might be drawing a bit less frequently from here on out. Not only is it Easter here and I have my hands full, but I'm also actually starting to work on that fanfic, so I may not have enough energy left for drawing :p
