Origi - Purple-haired kiddo by ruina Origi - Purple-haired kiddo by ruina
Must love purple hair.

Just wanted to design characters. I don't know if I like what I have here, but I might be able to work something off of it. Or not.
So I don't have a name for him. Yet. And yes, it's a him.

I also wanted to test my cging method.
A few days ago, I was bored out of my mind staring at my homework, so I went to look for small procrastination stuffies to save myself from further boredom. And somehow I ended up look at my old OC3 event files. I miss OC3. T.T I mean, I still have it, and I could use it whenever I want to really... I'm just scared of using it, since drawing on Windows is just............. let's just say, things tend to happen. And they're not good things. I'm a Mac user btw.

Aaanyway. I was looking at the event files. And I was thinking to myself... is there any reason why I can't color/cg like this on the Mac? On Photoshop? So I gave it a try. I think certain parts worked... like the hair, maybe. But the clothing... meh. I'll just have to play around.

And now, back to boredom... *digs up homework*

I love the color of his hair it just turns me on so bad and wearing that prince like clothing just makes him even more hotter!

The outfit that he's wearing as well as the purple hair came out awesome! The colouring came out really good on this character too. :)

I like the way the clothes came out, they're nicely textured. Some CG is too smooth and looks improbable, but I like this one :)

Beautiful. I really like his outfit design. It's well put-together.

...If he's single, I'd like to date him. <.<

This is awesome, and I really love the costume, and the guy is hot. I hope I was right in assuming the character is a guy though...

SushiiSquirrel Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2006
Beautiful coloring and lighting effects. Just gorgeous!

hmmm...I like both color styles, but I think the head/hair is smoother than the clothes, so its a bit inconsistant. teh face/hair need to be more painty or the clotehs mroe smooth if this were a completed, full-out piece (and don't you hate hw boredome? at least you learned something from your mind straying. anyways) I like the colors and clothing design(a lot) and the bg glow, but if you're gonna make him a character-character (like personality and such) he needs something unique to set him apart. as a stand-alone drawing I really like it though. just trying to give some useful crit, cause its hard to find these days, and I know I personally love a USEFUL long comment
ruina Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2006   General Artist
Yeah... the clothes didn't come out as smooth as I'd hoped... which is one of the things that didn't go as well as it would on OC3... T.T But then, keeping the hair and the clothes different like that looked kinda neat too, so I just left it as is (real reason = pure laziness to fix one or the other *swts* ). I was just thinking up random designs, so I don't think he'll be a character-character. Maybe after a few more remakes though I'll have a better design and character. >D
autumncoloredmelodie Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
yeah definately ^^ It does look sorta neat like this, but your bg would have to incorporate smooth and painty. then it would work. and remakes are always the best part! aka its-impossible-to-draw-the-chara-the-way-you-want-more-than-once ^.~

its still a very pretty piece though

jamuko Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ooh *-* that's a good idea, making a character up just for fun and CG practice. I need to do that too so I can improve on my coloring. >.<

I like how everything here is so blue and purple, and then there's his yellowy eyes staring you down. @.@ The contrast makes it so nice and striking.
TheAnimelord Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006

PockyPanda Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
*__* Pwettyyy~~~

I always find your art to be visually stunning. Even (somewhat) without a bg, it still looks awesome~ I envy you. >w<

How well does the Mac work for you? *is thinking of buying a comp*
ruina Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006   General Artist
You can do just about anything you do on your Windows on a Mac. Except games. And Open Canvas. But you really can get everything else - Photoshop, Painter, Microsoft Word (which I should get... only because professors send e-mail attachments of .doc files with images, which the Mac text programs I have won't display T.T ), AIM, MSN, VLC, Windows Media Player, IE, Firefox... plus, it has less problems, like viruses and compy freeze-ups. No freezing when you draw too~ <3 Oh, and iTunes. <3

I still have my Windows PC... but all I really do on there is play games and use Open Canvas. I do everything else on the Mac, and it works fine~ x3
PockyPanda Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
I think I remember the site saying oC wasn't compatible with a Mac (yet). But no games too?? What a bummer.

Lesser freeze-ups and viruses? Talk about sweeet.<3

I was wondering which of the two to get. They say Mac is better for graphics and everything, but is there really a difference?? xD LOL I wouldn't tell the difference anyway cuz my Mac's really old and I've been with Windows for ages.

It's sad though. There was a laptop I found that would've been absolutely perfect...except for the price: $2300. :faint: It had a lot of memory, capable of heavy editing for pictures and stuff..etc. Plus it was portable, being a laptop of course. xD Dell, you are ebul.

All in all, thank you so much for helping out. I really appreciate it. :glomp::worship:
ruina Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006   General Artist
Not all games I'm sure, but most games, at least the ones I know. x( But I do know Sims works, only because a friend who had a Mac was playing it. xD;

Mm, the only difference I really could find, is that the Mac isn't as screwy as Windows, but since the Mac isn't as mainstream as windows, it's not compatible with certain programs. T.T

Eeek. @_@; $2300!! I hope you'll be able to find a cheaper (but still a good) one soon! x(
Ooo yeah... is this for school or just general use? =3
PockyPanda Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
yup... pretty darn expensive. ><;

I remember my uncle saying something like that. Mac was the first company to come out with PCs, and then Windows pretty much nabbed their idea, which is probably why it's a bit screwier than Macs. xDD

I was hoping to use the laptop for like... CG, games...etc. And school would just add more to my reasons to get it. But otherwise, I would use it quite a lot... so yeah. ^^;
Tamoko Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2006
