HUGE FILE!!! DOWNLOAD TO SEE MY MISTAKES BETTER TO SEE THE CHARACTERS BETTER

IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU NOTICE LIKE MY EDIT BELOW, LET ME KNOW


EDIT: I just now noticed an NPC doesn't have a face... You'll just have to deal with it, random NPC... :I

The description is also huge...

And then I realized the problems of drawing on more than a piece of paper and I shall not do it again.

I think my entry was for October....it's been so long that I forgot. But I do remember trying to decide if mine was going to be Halloween theme or not so yes. I think I was October.

It's the Black Wings! Everyone is there...or well, close to as everyone that was there when I started. The rabbit henchmen didn't make it... :[

Black Magician - looking all wrong but he plays an important part in the group so he had to be in. I wanted to do my version but... yah. No more Silent Hill references for 'official' fanart. xD He gave me the most trouble because he appeared on all for pages. Then I got lazy to draw the patterns on his robe so that's a big fail right there
Black Witch - Obviously. She gave me problems too >[
Baroq - has that smile on
Francis - being himself - he's so out of place in the Black Wings since everyone else is basically an adult...
Dargoth - actually behaving himself for once being such a close proximity to the Puppeteer
Shadow Warrior - you too. Missed some details when inking but luckily catched it and managed to salvage that character before I accidentally ruined it with color :D
Hiver - has the honor of being the first character I started to color! :la:
The Pet Cockatrice - Eleanor's pet.
Sven - the monkey looking technician scientist guy
Allen - the other technician scientist guy...but not a monkey
Gelimir - Am I the first one to draw fanart of him??
Bunny Large
Harry Lion
Buck Teeth - I don't really care much for the bunny Black Wings. I don't know. Bunnies are supposed to be cute. The Black Wings are not supposed to be cute. I guess they were equal oppotunity employers? That would explain a few of the other members that don't really belong there... ^^;
Stephan - he will sell you a hat
Kwan - he will look at you funny
Wonny - one of the few cooler Black Wings watchmen
Leonore - she's okay too.
Le Tierre - she's also okay.
Schiller - He will throw his eye patch at you and try to make his skull pop out of his head
Chang and Wong - the two Black Wings bosses that don't do anything
Bavan - almost forgot to include this fat tub of something funny :I So he kind of sneaked in. I could have added Orca but nooo...this guy appeared instead :v
Anthony - Black Wings mayor. He looks so trustworthy... ;P


The reason I only colored a few of the surrounding characters is to show that only a few stand up against the Black Wings. Most of the characters that appear continue living their lives, either unaware of the group or powerless to do anything about it. Some would rather send someone else to deal with the Black Wings than join the fight so it's an uphill battle in Maple World if they don't want the Black Mage to take over... :I


Here's a game you can play when you're bored: Find your favorite NPC! Unfortunately, I didn't include that many NPCs from such places like Ereve, Leafre, etc - most appearing here are human characters, some obscure, others not.

All characters are property of Nexon/Wizet

I don't see him anywhere
WHERE DID YOU GO ECKY
WHERE DID YOU GO
rad-puppeteersketch's avatar
I had to check for myself because I worried that I actually forgot someone important... xD
crowmulent's avatar
HURHURHUR. OOPS. MY BAD. XD
crowmulent's avatar
NO WAIT I FOUND HIM
WHY DO YOU LOOK SO SIMILAR TO THE GRAYS AROUND YOU HUH >:(
rad-puppeteersketch's avatar
Haha I was about to tell you where but you found him before me.

Well, he IS the Cygnus Knight thief instructor - of course he's going to be AMAZING at blending in with the crowd... :la:
crowmulent's avatar
He's really amazing though XP
Even my brother couldn't find him and it was like thirty minutes before we spotted him hurhurhur :D
LianhuaStardrops's avatar
WOW~!~! That took some time I bet~! Incredible. :D
rad-puppeteersketch's avatar
Thanks!

I actually was going to do this digital but after months, I gave up, went traditional and finished in about a week or two. xD

I want to do this better though :I
LianhuaStardrops's avatar
Practice practice practice~! You can do it, I know you will. :D Thank you for the watch. ^.~

OAO

Just... how long... asdfghjkl;;;;;;;
rad-puppeteersketch's avatar
LOL!

First attempt was going to be digital. I worked on it for about a few months and only completed doing the lineart and some coloring of about 1/4 of this. Gave up, went traditional and finished in about a week... xD
Azerarhk's avatar
Ah, digital dislikes me too =w= I try to draw something epic and it... well, epically fails XD
PerpetualxDreams's avatar
Wow, this is great! It must have taken you ages...

I love how in the background, most of the people's faces were in gray. However, the important NPC's were actually colored. I found it to be a nice touch.
rad-puppeteersketch's avatar
Thank you very much! ^^ It did! I was planning to do this digitally but redoing the lineart on the computer was taking forever so I switched to doing tradiotionally - worked on it a LOT faster! :D

Yah, I was trying to show the idea that the few fight for the many or only a few are willing to stand up against the Black Wings. I originally planned to draw the major Maple bosses in the background but decided to do NPCs instead. xD
Soulenite's avatar
So.... Many... NPCs.... @-@
rad-puppeteersketch's avatar
LOL

Yes and they are all watching...YOU
Soulenite's avatar
Oh, hey NPCs! .... Uhhh... Why you all staring? :iconscaredplz:
SabrieI's avatar
OH WOW OH GOSH THE BACKGROUND OMG EVERYONE OH GOSH I AM IN AWE I DON'T EVEN WOW.
it's so cute c:
rad-puppeteersketch's avatar
Background characters say, 'HI'. Did you find any NPCs hiding there that you like? :D

It took forever. I think working on this is part of the reason I'm struggling so much in my 3D modeling class xD

Thank you! ^^
SabrieI's avatar
well no...coz Francis is in the foreground 8D

whoa 3D modelling class are you going to be like some graphic artist next time or smth
rad-puppeteersketch's avatar
LOOOOOL Well, he should be in the foreground since he's Black Wings xD

I'm not that good with 3D modeling - with my luck, I'll have to repeat it next quarter but I think it's better to get more practice instead of doing poorly and jumping into 3D modeling when I'm not ready...

I'm going for a Media Arts & Animation career. ;P I actually want to work with something more traditional, but the current job are more 3D xD

:icon3dlaplz: Oh wow, I love this! You did a wonderful job on this and the effort shows. Thank you so much for putting time into this. TTwTT
rad-puppeteersketch's avatar
Thanks! I'm glad it's finished at last! Now I can go crazy with a different project!! :la:
Meg-James's avatar
Ahahaha! And I thought mine seemed like a pain in the ass to work on! Drawing so many characters must have been craaaaaaazy tedious! @_@

I commend you for having such patience. I would casually flip over my desk half-way through drawing if I attempted anything like this. XD
