Hey there peeps. Long time no see. Or maybe you don't even remember me, but that doesn't matter. I'm here to add another entry into your otherwise full and unread inbox. :)

This time I'm back with an original piece of drawing of my own characters. Don't think you'd see me coming with a wallpaper sooner, make that years to come. Now that I'm really learning something animation-related, I need to do some serious character design nail-down. *roll eyes*

Anyway, this piece of sketch was done during March or late February (something like that) when I was all alone in my hostel and no computer to accompany. Wao imagine the horror of not having anyone to talk to and no computers at that! I did manage to finish a complicated drawing done in a few days time with pause in between. This is the raw version of it (if there's such thing as raw drawing) I scanned the cleaned up and inked version, but by the time I had the time to borrow my friend's scanner and scan the latter, I already started colouring the raw piece. And this is the result. The lines have been refined in photoshop and the basic forms and cross for the faces have been rubbed so they don't look too half-heartedly done o.O It would be even more raw if I didn't. So now you know how messy my traditional drawing looks like if its not cleaned. but I really like how it looks like now.

First row, from left to right: Shizu, Kiro and Land.
Second row, from left to right: Allan, Riki and Rena.

I know I've been submitting pretty much the same characters looking different or maybe with different colours, but this is the final one. I swear. Well, except that Kiro's hair needs to be simplified. For some unknown reason everybody's hair has the same simple look except him. I just don't get it. Every time I start drawing his hair it'll go all strands and details. I'm in the process of trying to get used to simplify his hair so maybe I'll post it up if I have the chance. Other than that, everything are settled. Ah, maybe not Riki's sword. His sword looks kinda retarded I know. <.< Will have to do more drawing on swords again. But yes, other than those mentioned, everything is finalized.

They are called Rages because they all hail from Rage Continent (in my story). I'm really sorry if you're wondering they don't even look like they're one bit outraged of the sort. :D

Other than my body proportion errors, comments and critiques welcome. (Had never gone through a stage where I can draw a perfectly fine piece of drawing anyway booo)

    Whoa... Ephie's back! Great character design... I especially like Riki (?). My only critique is that Shizu looks like her was drawn a little haphazardly. The style looks completely different from the rest of the characters. (Maybe his head is too short/round?) But overall, good effort. Nice to see some new stuff from you! :D

    I didn't know you submitted another of your originals here again. XD

    You still need to work on the details. I think there're still some inconsistencies over the character arts but heck! Thumbs up for Sofie!
