Hazed by Riftmaw Hazed by Riftmaw
Paint Tool SAI

I tried something a little different from my usual shading technique and I'm liking how it turned out a lot.
This is Tasyl, a Mynrean character that is to be one of the main protagonists for a future comic/novel endeavor. I developed his design a bit and broadened his shoulders, gave him small horns to declare maleness, and worked more on his personality.. heh. I feel that I need to break out of my comfort zone with level perspective and practice a bit more before I can do said comic, but ah'well.
He's overlooking the city from a veranda of sorts after an argument with his brother, Kelvyn, concerning all the time he's been putting into fixing the lightship recently.

I like the shading. It looks good; kind of has a soft but clear feel. I like the character too. He has a chill, but conflicted feel. I dunno, maybe my opinions are weird, but I'm excited to see a comic thing like this.

Not weird at all, since Tasyl is quite a bit more level-headed than his brother.. but that doesn't mean that he agrees with him much at all. Hopefully, after practicing with the different perspective types in a few finished pieces, I'll get up the courage to start drawing out panels/pages. Thanks a lot~

This looks really awesome, and further more, it's kind of ironic that while he seems to be looking out and pitying those in all the smoke, HE'S smoking!
Nice symbolism thar dawg. :D

Thanks~ I didn't think of that, but I suppose so, haha!~ Then again there's such a problem with smog and smoke in the heavily industrialized Zaln port cities, I don't think many realize just how bad it is.. unless one is coming to the city from the rural provinces, that is. Then I'd think it would be a whole mess of not being able to breathe proper. :)

You should add that people cycle about with little mouth-masks on like they do in china.
You know, just for the cool factor and all :D
