TM2 Boetheri Characters by dragonsong12
TM2 Boetheri Characters
Prominent boetheri characters from the Twisted Mirrors sequel. Not as carefully drawn as the last two colored sketches, I admit, but their basic designs are pretty well set now.
Starting from the left the first two characters are both nobles, the third one is an assistant, the fourth is the local magesmith and the last two are townsfolk.

None of them have names yet, but they all have their place in the story and will probably be pretty fun to draw. :)

Like the last two pieces I've uploaded, this is a test of my new tablet.
Unlike those two, this was never intended as anything more than practice. It's only in my gallery rather than my scraps because the other two are as well and it just made sense somehow.
...though there are certainly better looking things in my scraps, so I don't know why I was concerned. :XD:

Anyway, I learned about cel shading! It's not perfect, but it's improvement on the "nothing" I started with! I'll have to keep working with it going forward, but I am feeling a lot optimistic than I was.

You probably won't see much from me for a while now. I have to get back to some of the long-term projects that I've been neglecting in favor of playing with my new toy. ^^;

This is the first test of digital painting on my new tablet.
...it has a lot of problems, but I feel like it's a lot closer than I've been in the past. In particular, it has some more of that "painted" look that I've been looking for.
...really need to fix the fact that it's very grey though... :(

Just for fun, though, I did upload some "in progress" pictures...as usual, it's mostly for my own benefit. I like seeing this stuff. :XD:
The original sketch
Early painting (I don't normally work like this. My painting teacher in college taught me to have an "all over" approach, but since I wasn't sure it would work, I decided to focus in at first.)
"armor" done and background blocked in.

TM2 Designs - Masks by dragonsong12
TM2 Designs - Masks
A couple more designs for the Twisted Mirrors sequel.

First up is the vigilante - a.k.a. the first character I ever designed for this project. As predicted, the design has changed a bit since that initial attempt, but the basics are all the same. Apologies, by the way, if the color version is a bit dark on your screen, I just wanted to get across the fact that the costume is mostly black - and the only reason it isn't completely black is to break it up a bit and make it easier to see. Also, I messed up a bit on the torso, but eh, this is about the colors and the costume, so I ain't even mad. :D
The vigilante doesn't ever give a name, but the townsfolk use the name "Eclipse". The reasoning is that the mask is that of the boetheri moon spirit and the costume is entirely dark. Moon + blacked out = Eclipse.

The other masked costume is that of a group within the city involved in a lot of shady goings on. (I suppose it's reasonable to say that Eclipse is involved in shady things too, just without having a group or any real support, haha!) They cover themselves from head to toe to keep everything about their identities secret.
I don't have a name yet for this group. Everything's that's popped into my head is something I think I stole from other fantasy stories, but I haven't really thought it through yet, so I'm sure I'll come up with something. I've actually done a bunch of different tries at their masks, you can see them scattered throughout the sketchdump pictures. I thought wanted something more simple than this, but once I got to this point, it just seemed right.

I don't have plans to do these for ALL of TM 2's characters. Just the more important or dramatic ones. Anyone I think might be featured on a cover at some point, since I'd need to know the colors for that. So don't worry about me spamming these. ...but there's still a fair few to go yet. :XD:

I've always had an interest in cartoons and comics. I work for a living, but spend almost all of my free time drawing, either for one of my two webcomics, or for work you see here in the gallery. Though I don't have any illusions of being "professional" I do enjoy it and I keep working to improve.

RvB? We're actually a bit behind. ^^; I think we've missed the last couple of episodes.

The one upside of that is you have a bit more to watch when you go back in, heh.

Slowly, I'm afraid. I've done some skecthes, but nothing I'm happy with so far. :(

The good news, though, is that a large part of my backlog was due to some extra content I needed to do for personal projects, and those are just about complete. (One will post on Monday and that'll only leave one more which is nearly finished.) So that'll free up some time for me to focus on other things.

I'm glad you messaged me about it, though. It was going to get done eventually regardless, but I'm happy you're still interested. I don't think the delay will be as long this time.

I see. Ya, I'm still interested in them. I came up with how the four should look so  Ido want to see them get done at some point.

Sketches? Mind if I see them? I know you said yo uweren't happy with them, but I would still like to see.

I think I may have said this before, but I saw you added me to your devwatch a while back and I wanted to thank you! :glomp: I'm also a fan of Twisted Mirrors!  Been reading it for a couple of years now - I can't wait to see more of the story in the future! :la:

Thanks so much! I'm so glad you've enjoyed it and I will do my best to keep it up! :D

I forget how I came across your DA, but I really love your drawing style and I'm excited to see what you'll come up with in the future! :nod:
