Usual Suspects by maaria Usual Suspects by maaria
Chie, Jon, Amber, Elias, Chief (Brigitte), Nadia, Jasper

All the characters introduced so far! Chapter three should bring a couple more. Gee, it's getting difficult to handle so many though :-D I wonder when I'll have enough spare pages to get through each one's backstory

Chie on vain 160 cm pitkä? Hääre gyyd! Tuolla tyylillä ja noilla koivilla kaikki näyttävät vähintään yli 170-senttisiltä. Ymmäeeän kyllä, että se on selvästi osa tyyliäsi, mutta kannattaisiko noita jalkoja koettaa edes pikkasen lyhentää? Anteeksi kauheasti kun nipotan, mutta olen itse tämän diagrammin mukaan saman pituinen kuin Chie, mutten kyllä näytä tuolta lainkaan.
Mut joo, tää on nyt varmasti aika mielipidekysymys, mutta päätinpä heittää tällaisen idean ilmoille ^^'

Tjuu tämä kuva on ollut tarkoitus päivittää jo iät ja ajat :') Mittasuhteet tuli hiljattain opeteltua uusiksi kun sain selville, ettei ihmisen pituus olekaan normisti 8 päätä vaan vähän yli 7. Kyllä tää tästä

Huh. For some reason I thought Chie would be much shorter. I gues it's just the image I had because she's so skinny.

Great lineup. the body language and facial expressions hint at the characters personality. Nice to see size comparrisons. I bet getting them scaled to each other correctly took a bit of time.

I really enjoyed the first two chapters. Something I was curious about though. I noticed that all of the characters have a mole next to each eye. Is that just your style, or does it have something to do with the plot?

It's a plot related thing, will become more relevant in the next few chapters C:

Ööö, eihän sun tarvii kertoo kaikkien taustoja? 8D;;; Se on vähä sellanen manga-juttu et kaikista kerrotaan kaikki ku mangat on yleensä niin pitkiä julkasuja mut mä ite kyl tykkään enemmän jutuista joissa kerrotaan kahen kolmen hahmon tarinat kokonaan ja muista vaan nykysyys. Sillon pysyy pääjuoni kasassa. Mua kun henkilökohtasesti vähä häirittee jos rupee kertoon liikaa joka hahmosta ja sit pääjuoni menee ihan katkonaiseksi.... Raakel on taas ihan eri mieltä ja sen mielestä kaikista pitääs kertoo enemmän ja hieman käydään kiivaita keskusteluja aina asiasta XD

Joo ja sitä piti sanomani et tykkään sun hahmojen nimistä. Ne on tollasia että suomalainen voi sanoo ne suomeksi, mutta ne kääntyy myös ulkomaisen suuhun hyvin. Ootko ihan miettiny ne sillee vai menikö ne vahingos noin hyvin?
Reply
:iconmaaria:
maaria Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011
Ei toki... Nadialla ei oikeastaan ole stooria lainkaan ja Jasperin voi tiivistää pariin lauseeseen, mutta muiden taustat on niin olennainen osa kokonaisuutta etten voi mitenkään jättää pois :-D Sitten sitä piirtäessä keksii aina vaan uusia jänniä yksityiskohtia ja ja ja. Sitä on kuitenkin helpompi välittää hahmoista mitä paremmin niitä tuntee

Useimman kohdalla on vaan tullut selattua yleisiä Eurooppalaisia nimiä ja otettua sopivin :> En hirveästi jaksa miettiä noita yleensä
Reply
:iconhanna-pirita:
Hanna-Pirita Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Joo. Se on kyllä totta että tulee keksittyä lisää ja lisää yksityiskohtia. Mustaki on tosi hyvä että niillä hahmoilla on se menneisyys ja kaikki mietittynä, niistä tulee uskottavampia sillon. Eihän sen tarvii ees olla mikää erikoinen menneisyys, kunhan se on mietitty läpi. Itekki kyllä suunnittelen tarinat kaikille mutta yleensä en edes meinaa kertoa niitä. En sitte tiä mikä on parempi ja mikä huonompi. Ne on vähä niinku kaks eri tapaa tehä asia, eli enpä kyllä sano että kumpikaa ois toistaan huonompi tapa.

Ja joo, mutta hyvin on ne nimet silti tullu. Mä yritän ite keksiä sarjishahmoille nimet silleen että ne vois lausua sekä suomeksi, että englanniksi. Sitte on kauhee määrä paskoja roolipelihahmoja joiden nimet on sellasia etten itekkää osaa lausua, mutta ne onki eri asia. XD

:iconmaaria:
maaria Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011
Luulen et kätevintä on miettiä taustatarinat niin että ne linkittyy jotain kautta pääjuoneen C: Silloin saa hyvän tekosyyn pistääkin niitä fläshbäkkejä väliin...

Hehe, joskus oon miettinyt antaa piruuttani jollekin hahmolle aivan supisuomalaisen nimen, ihan vaan jotta se näyttäis eksoottiselta ulkomaalaisen lukijan silmään
