A sequel to the previous picture: [link]
except with A SHITTON MORE CHARACTERS.
I'm really happy with how this turned out for a few reasons. First, because it's a solid group shot (hopefully!) highlighting all the characters we've been growing attached to over the course of the past fourteen months playing this game. But second, and more importantly, I used this picture as profile practice. My goal was to emphasize the differences in each person's profile and facial structure. No two people have the same facial structure in real life, why should my drawings?
The main differences are in gender and race. I wanted to make sure all the males and females LOOKED male and female. Also, Asia is Indian. Nakayama is Japanese. Indian and Japanese people have slightly different features than caucasian people. I've found when drawing characters of a different race, one walks a very fine line between drawing a dark-skinned caucasian person, or an overexaggerated caricature of stereotypical _____ (insert race here) features. I know I still need a lot of work, but I'd like to say it was a pretty successful experiment. ^^
oh how it pains me to cut out all the context for this picture, so here. Have a lovely picture.
Drawn and colored with Copic markers (and the occasional prismacolor). COMMISSIONS ALWAYS OPEN - note me if you're interested!
