Axel's New Clothes by cybre Axel's New Clothes by cybre
The club I am in is holding a contest to redesign Axel's outfit and, since I love designing clothes, decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately, it is due today and I couldn't manage to finish more than a sketch. That stinks =P Oh well, I guess I'll post what I have anyway. Hopefully it will still be enjoyed ^_^

BTW... the anatomy on this is really scary (another thing I wanted to fix). Does Axel's torso look really long to you? I have such a hard time getting male anatomy right. I have a lot of trouble around the hips. Does anyone have any tips/tutorials on the male figure?

I really like what you had going here with the outfit - it's unique and funky but it isn't too complicated (an element of design I detest is when clothing becomes all too complicated to fathom wearing lol). I think he looks great!

And his torso does look a smidget long... but that's coming from a person who's torso is a smidget short... ^^'

Hee hee... my torso is a bit short as well. Maybe I was trying to over-compensate ^^'

The outfit is really nice. You might be right something in the torso might be a little long. I can't really place
what it is though. Well anyway, I hope you do well in your contest. I do really like the outfit.

I think what you have to do for guys is get the ratio between the torso and the leg length right. The torso does look too long, however, if you had made the legs slightly longer then it would have balanced out I think.

Just guessing, I would say the legs would be one and a half times bigger than the torso. Try experimenting with it until you get the balance right.

The clothes are good anyhow! ^_^

Interesting outfit, can't wait to see what colors you pick for it.

Far be it from me to attempt to fix anatomy... I gotta fix my own first ;)

Aye, his torso is long and too skinny, making him look like a bending stick. :lol:

Axel's torso is long even in the game. His hair almost resembles Roxa's, too.
Spiffy, Elvis-like but better. Is it just me, or did you redesign his weapon, too? I noticed it was spiky in the game (over-spiky, how does he use it without hurting himself?) and it's good to see he lost his masochistic weapon. xD
Actually, he kind looks like Roxas and Axel put together. You should win for this, I think.

Thanks ^_^ No, I did not redesign his weapon. That's pretty much how it looked in the game (I used references) cept' in the game he carried two.

It was animation school that got me into sketching with the blue pencils, and once I started it was hard to stop! I like the blue because I can use it to sketch my construction lines and rough sketch lightly and then use the mechancial pencil to sharpen details. It's fun to use as shading too! :) You should give it a try!

I personally like the color blue and i find that A LOT of people start off sketches with blue.
I see blue as a starter with oekaki AND paper art. : )

It's an easy color to sketch over. When you make initial sketch lines black or another dark color, sketches start to get really messy.
