Nostale: Nomad by NuffieArts Nostale: Nomad by NuffieArts
First of three entries for the German Nostale Specialists 5 Design Contest

This is the first of three entries devoted to the MMPORPG Nostale, but this contest is limited on the German Servers :< That's why the text is German, too.

A translation, even if it's not the best one xD

Nomad

Archer Specialist Card
requires:
SP uptake rate: 3
Job-Level: 65
Fame points: 50.001+ (expert)

Earth Element Specialist Card
Because of their advanced knowledge concerning the desert the nomads proofed that they are survival experts. They use the environment to perform lethal attacks, likewise their knowledge allows them to produce very effective poisons and potions.

Special effects:
Speed level rises up by 2
Attack level rises up by 1 (not in effect when being in a PvP match or in Glacernon)
However, I wanted to give it a try and here is my first entry, which I personally like a lot.

I tried to design a specialist fitting to act 5, the desert part of nostale which I personally really enjoy. But when it came to choosing an element I wasn't sure whether wind or earth would be better. In the end I chose the Earth element for all three classes *scratches head* Well, we will see. The rest was decided very quickly, especially the colors did not cause any trouble to me. Sandy colors and any tone of brown and yellow seemed fine to me and I'm glad that it turned out so well. More over I chose a Chibi style to make it fit to the original artworks GameForge has published in the last years. All in all I like this entry a lot ♥ Ad I'm looking forward for doing the next one's

The name of my main character is -Ashe- and I'm playing on Server 3 (Zenas) on the German Nostale Server xP

This took me four days in total with sketching, inking and coloring

I adjusted my coloring style a bit in reference to the original one from the Nostale Artworks. However, i failed at immitating it well, so I changed it more and more and this is the result. I personally like the doubled cell shading, maybe I'll use it more often in the future :P
Thanks a lot btw ♥

Did you experiment with a different way of shading?
The way you applied the shadows on this picture makes it stand out more, it seems more 3D than the other pictures that you colored digitally. Your anime chibies look adorable even if the left nomad's mouth looks too big. Also, good luck in the Nostale contest even though I have never played Nostale (much less heard of it).

Well, I tried to adopt the original Nostale image style in this pictures, but I actualy failed xD The only thing that's rather close to the original ones are the doubled cell shading, the rest is the result of experimenting and so on.
And yeah, Nostale is rather unknown, more over I barely have seen any (good) fanarts about it, but it's gaining popularity in Germany due to internet avertising and so on. At least it is popular enough to fill a full channel on my serverwhile I desperately try to get on that channel xDD;
Thank you in total for your comment ovo

You are welcome and I think the reason why Nostale is so unknown is that it is overshadowed by more famous MMORPGs such as World of Warcraft and so on

dankeschön x3 hab mich auch echt ins Zeug gelegt, damit sie eben nicht einfach nur langweilig rumstehen (auch wenn man dann das Design wahrscheinlich besser erkennen würde). Na ja... jetzt erstmal Magier und Schwerti fertig machen und dann hab ich mir schon ein paar Eis verdient @@;

Look forward to getting the second place on the contest, while a talentless dolt finishes first. :P
I've seen it happen at least once in a similar contest. Where the first place was a picture that mainly consisted of resized sprites
while on the second place was an entry that somebody actually has put some effort into.

Good luck on the contest anyway. Looks nice, tough the feet on the male character looks odd, but that might just be your style.

Well, the contest rules say that sprites are not allowed, so I guess this won't happen xD All in all the idea and the generell design counts, not the skills of drawing and neither the final look of the picture, since Photoshop would give too much adventages to a minor group of contestants. Therefore I put the description on the side to show that I really put some thoughts into the design besides the effort I put into it while drawing and coloring.
More over... it would be nice to win something of course, but I'm also happy about even having finished something like this on time xD *is currently sketching the mage part* However, thank you for your comment, the critism (on the picture and design contests as well xP) - both was really appericated =D
