Bear with me, my kind watchers: I'm trying my tablet, just to learn how to use it!
And, as I had this little drawing done for quite some time, I decided to colour it. So, Tales of Symphonia fanart! Lloyd with a Kratos-daddy-shaped plushie! Yay!
I've already got the eleventh entry for my oooold "Kratos Defeated" comic strips in mind (if you dunno what they are, here's KD1 [link] ), and I was planning to draw it for the european release of ToS: Dawn of the New World. The fact is, we only recently had confirmation of a release, and they said: second half of 2009... *Waaargh!* So maybe I'll draw it a bit before the release... Not fair tough: japanese and americans already have it... Wanna know how the story develops! (not asking for spoilers, btw).
Playing Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World has rekindled my neverending love for the Tales of Symphonia charaters... ~ And I owed this drawing a colouring. The majority of my watchers watch me mostly for my papercrafts, so maybe you don't know this: the lineart of this drawing was the FIRST deviation I've ever submitted here, a year and a half ago!!! Here it is: [link]
This seems to be the basic shape of Nightow's male characters: slim waist, long legs, long arms. The first one is "mortal" proportions, eight heads tall. The second one is "hero" height, nine heads, but if you take a look and compare the two, the extra head height is not distributed equally along the entire figure. The arms are the same length as the mortal proportions, but the legs are much much longer.
I am pretty sure sometimes Nightow draws his characters almost 10 heads tall... Every once in a while in the manga, Nightow will illustrate a kind of idealized version of Vash, like, the mythical version. One of those pictures has IMPOSSIBLY LONG LEGS. (Still looks cool, though...)
There's no doubt about it, folks. The extra height is in the legs. Even the character design for Vash on the anime is crazy disproportionate. If you look at the model sheet for the anime, you can see that out of 9 heads, 5 of them are LEG. If you compare this to the mortal proportions, it's only 4 heads tall. If you look at NORMAL hero proportions, the legs are still only 4.5 heads tall.
Vash character design probably belongs to either Yasuhiro Nightow or Madhouse Studio.
This is Xion from Kingom Hearts 358/2 Days. This took me about 9 hours due to the background and hair. Yea, the hair for me was hard to do. I used: -Skin: 2H -Clothes: 3B and 6B -Hair/Eyes: 2H, HB, and 3B -Background: Everything! Now, I have decided that I am going to make another account for me realism drawings I will draw. So this account will be mainly for anime drawings and video game drawings. I will post the link for my new account on the next art I will submit! I will still submit drawings here though!! So keep watching! Also, thank you for all of your comments, favorites, and support you guys give me!! It makes me very encourage and happy to keep drawing!! So, Hope you like this drawing!
