I Never Told You... by artisticTaurean I Never Told You... by artisticTaurean
Right. So here's what you're gonna do, dear viewer. You're going to ignore the 8,000 light sources in this pic. Ready? Go.

Okay. So, last night, I got an urge to draw Arthyr and Leia again. I've drawn Arthyr a couple times recently, but Leia hasn't been drawn since EONS ago (there's one pic of her, but it's in storage because it's from a good seven or more years ago and made of fail). SO, I found a couple poses I liked in a drawing reference book (manga reference, obviously) and drew these two up. And then I decided to put Arthyr in some armor, because he's been around for a ridiculous amount of years not to have SOME kind of armor.

I suck at drawing that stuff, so this is it. XD; I'm still tinkering with it. That's the general shape of it, though. The shading is horrid, but I tried. (I know, there's no crotch guard. It looked stupid as hell, no matter how many times I erased it and redrew it, so I omitted it. XD; ) I actually had the worst problem with their hands; because of the angle, it took me a while to get it right. It might still be off.

ANYWAY. These two are childhood friends, and would go through hell for one another. They're the type of couple you want to scream "HURRY UP AND KISS!" at. Neither is bold enough to act on their feelings, and even if Arthyr could get the words out, he left their hometown and didn't see Leia again for a few years, so he's all socially awkward about it. Now they're "grown up" (in their late teens), Arthyr's a Rocket Knight, Leia's just gotten started as a nurse, and Arthyr STILL can't tell her he loves her. Leia knows, of course, but she's waiting for him to say it. XD

Characters are mine, the whole Rocket Knight thing is Konami. :D

Okay ignoring the light source errors, which I believe is one of the difficult aspects to coloring. The two of them look cute together. To bad Arthyr fells so awkward about not seeing her for a few years that only makes it harder for him to confess.

My two cents on armor:
What I can tell you about armor is that you could look at RPGs like Dragon Age or White Knight Chronicles. There is also looking at actual existing armor, just Google the type of armor you want to draw. With a good reference you should be able to understand how armor fits in the body. From there you can add what ever detail you like.
For Arthyr it looks like you were going for a breast plate. There are many ways to make the breast plate since that it the center piece of any armor set.

Well that a side do you mind if I drew these two. I'm thinking of how to redraw some of my own characters but I swear I'm getting a hemorrhage thinking about how they could look. That and I want to draw some one else character for a change.

Thank you for the tips! :D I seriously have no concept of armor, and I do need to practice. It comes second nature to you, haha. I am kind of surprised that I decided to draw Arthyr in some kind of armor this time, as I usually shy away from it... but he's existed for a good 15 years or slightly more, so I think I was just like, "OKAY, ARMOR, NOW." I will look up some examples and figure it out. ^_^

And no, I don't mind if you draw them at all! You have to show me, though. XD

Ah that's good to hear, as I already started to draw them... Well more like almost finished really. I'm just having a difficult time getting the perspective right.

At the very least I can show you the sketch page I'm working from.

NICE. :D Haha, I realized after everything was done that I omitted Arthyr's rocket pack. That's okay. It pretty much looks like Sparkster's, so it's not like I have to design it. XD;
