    FFXIV Character

    A'nutoh Tia (Sargatanas)

    Default Fynn's Character Art

    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:



    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.

    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'

    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.



    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.



    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.

    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.

    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

    You need to label your characters, better

    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.
