Character designs by Looji Character designs by Looji
edit 2 people often noted that the characters looked short, and that was because I started with a short character and kept drawing the new one next to that one, only keeping the balance between the heights in mind instead of the actual heights - so I changed them to be taller. It took a while haha
I don't know their actual heights (like in cm) but if you want some sort of reference, the only one that has a canon height is "Gerret" and he stands at 203 cm tall / 6'6 feet.

--------------

edit changed a lot of names, mostly full names that aren't really ment to be used to reference the character, and changed some ages (I basicly just changed the names were more appropriate for a fantasy arabian-inspired setting)
Anna "Snow" Harper > Ana "Snow" Hapar
August "Helmen" Shields > Augun "Helmen" Sheel
Sebastian "Kenny" Winds > Kennen "Kenny" Win
Florian "Chive" Coppar > Floran "Chive" Coppar
Nadi Daravá 25 yrs > Nadi 26 yrs (Nymphs role changed and they don't have surnames anymore)
Zerra Duke > Zerra Duuk
Lané and Huaan 28 yrs > 30 yrs
Gerret Kelly > Gerret Kelli
June Roberts > June Rovern
Marabell Bonavan > Marabell Bonanvan

I've been working on this since the first of january, and it was a lot of fun
I wanted to give my characters new designs so that they would fit (actually look like they're from the same kingdom minus Idla, who comes from a different one)
They're all from this made up kingdom Gelea, where it's overall pretty warm
I just want to go over what I exactly changed per design, and the reason behind it

Captain Just like everyone I wanted to give his clothes a more Arabian vibe. I also aged him up
Snow I figured a worker would have her hair tied up instead of loose, so she's wearing a braid now. I also aged her up
Helmen Gave him a little bird friend : )
Kenny Made him a little bit more buffer to make an interesting silhouette
Chive Like a drawing I did for him before, I wanted to give his hair a little bit more harmony (before he had just weird things sticking out and it didn't felt right)
Cookie Haven't drawn him in ages so I wanted to start pretty much from the start, his main color changed from light green to a blue-ish green
Rem Another old guy I haven't drawn in ages, I wanted to give him more of a monk vibe, since he's a former monk
Cabby First of all, changed his name to Cabby instead of Cabin,, and gave him overall darker colors for his clothes
Kit Personal favourite,, I really like how his face turned out
Ellanora I always kind of had her in mind as an albino, but for that she would be really sensitive. So I gave her an umberella and gloves to hide from the bright sun of Gelea
Nadi I already changed her hair recently, I also added a more flowy dress and a nymph like her would probably walk around on bare feet
Zerra I wanted to make her more of a fire performer, she's not dressed all that fancy (like Karo) though
Karo I gave her more of an acrobat costume then a clown one (since she's suppose to be an acrobat) and gave her a little friend who's part of her act : D
Lané This guy is never seen before. I had his role in mind for such a long long time but never got around making a design. More about him when I upload the personalities
Prince Dandelyon More of a regal look, with long sleeve (things) and bolder colors, representing a (male) peacock
Huaan Since the prince represents a male peacock, I wanted to give all the servents the colors of a female peacock, which is brown and white
Chee Same goes for her, brown outfit instead of green
Gerret Made him taller to give him a more intimidating look
June Not much change other then a new outfit. I already changed her from a nekotama to a simple human (so no cat ears)
Marabell Her chair was really hard to do haha, but I also had a lot of trouble with her face (she went through 3 ittirations). I removed the white in the dress and made it more green, to give the dress a more balanced color scheme
Idla She's not from Gelea, for her dress I went more for a medievel europian style. I also made her a little younger, a 14 year old

to see how these character used to look go here


character personalities
CHARACTER PERSONALITIESupdates

09/09/18 changed several names
23/08/18 added fishy boy Janai
16/05/18 added Tono, Pepe, Lotta , Miri, Travin and Dane
Also changed Gerrets portrait to match his current design, where is eyelashes matches his dark eyebrows. And made a difference through text between characters who don't know their parents and parents who don't have a name and design.

BEFORE READING

I changed a lot from older personality sheets and overall story things. So if something is missing or wrong, it's probably scrapped or I want to re-write the story and it isn't revealed yet. Older drawings of these characters also may hold wrong information and personalities. Everything in this journal is correct and anything I will mention and/or draw from now on 12/2/18 (twelfth of February) will be correct as well.
OVERALL STORY

All characters come from Gelea, a k


All characters belong to me ~

Are these characters all supposed to be short, like hobbits or dwarfs, for example?

I'm asking in case I enter your contest because I didn't want to draw them at an incorrect size and I didn't know if they are drawn in a short, cute, stylistic way and not true to their heights or not.
I don't see any height charts to tell their actual size in centimeters or feet.

aaa these ocs r so cute,,,
so many people have already pointed out diversity in the designs themselves,
but id like to say that i applaud you for the diversity in the ages
most people make their characters all somewhere between 16-24
It's rare to find a likable, well designed, fleshed out character above the age of 30,
but you did a swell job!

Looji Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2018   Digital Artist
Thanks!! I must admit designing characters that are between 16-24 are the most fun, but in other media I often enjoy the older characters, so I wanted to try making some myself as well ^^

Oh wow, do they look great or what?
I'm marvelling over all the teeny tiny details, it's one of those pieces where you see something new every time you look at it!
I love Marabell's sleeves so much! Ellanora's parasol is so amazing! But I especially love Snow's scarf, it looks so cozy!

Are you gonna change the designs of other Gelea characters (like June's wife, Travin, Miri etc), because that I would love to see!

Looji Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2018   Digital Artist
ah thank you so much !!

I really hoped to start a comic, and these would be all the bigger characters in the story I have now, so I wanted to draw them first
maybe the other characters will appear in the comic, but I'm not sure yet. But maybe I will give them a make-over regardless, since its so much fun :nod:

CHRIIIIISSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTT THE WAIT WAS SO WORTH IT, THEY LOOK AMAZING!!!!

I love cabby's new design, its adorable, also Kit's is amazing! Ellanora and The Prince's clothes looks so cultured, The pirate crew blends together perfectly, the super hot trio (Nadi, Zerra, and Karo) are so frikkin hoooot those designs are so detailed! Gerret and June's armor look a million times cooler than they were before and much more sophisticated, I love that peacock female to male thing you did with the prince and the servants, Princess Ilda looks much more mature for some reason with this design and also more obviously from another kingdom with that medieval europe esque! 

All these designs are so unique and harmonious with each other! Cant wait to see more pics of these designs in the future and how the new character'll be impacting the story!!! :D

Absolutely love the redesigns!
