Drano by Scyoni Drano by Scyoni
First CG in a while. ;) This is Drano, a character in my WIP novel. He looks very much like Zack xD but there are reasons for this.

This took about six hours, all told. I'm happy with it.

I like his expression. The style is really cool. It's simple, yet it doesn't skip on detail. The rope around the belt for example, or the staff. I also like the color scheme. You managed to have blue and back tie in well together. ^^;

Black goes with everything. xD

I love details, but I've started trying to simplify some things with my characters since I started studying animation. You never think about how the little things can be bad until you have to draw the same character nine million times.

Definitely. I wanted to go into cartooning back in the day, but I don't think I have the talent to simplify. But what you did there would make such a cool character!
I suppose you can always do flash animation.

Eeee flash. xD I have, I don't like it much. Don't get me wrong, it works, but... Mmmm, here's an example.

The animation in this: [link] is traditional animation (pencil and paper + finishes) and this: [link] at least once you get past the opening credits, is made in flash. Flash is easier, but traditional looks so much better - it's a quantity versus quality thing.

Oh wow, you can definitely see the difference. The animation quality is not nearly as good as the old style. It does make me angry that they chose simplicity over quality. (I used to love that show as a kid.) I suppose it doesn't work well with characters that have too many dimensions.
I learned something today! Thank you very much. ^^

No problem!

If you're interested, I have one of my animation assignments posted on youtube. ;) A pencil test, a bit rough around the edges, but [link] nonetheless.

Oh my gosh! It's so good. I gave you a like. How long did it take you to do it?

It was a three-week project, but that said it was one project of many xD Guesstimating how long I actually spent on it, probably around 30-35 hours. I also designed the characters at the same time. :)

I quite like the color pallet.

Thanks. Blue, violet, and silver are my favorite colors - and this is one of my favorite characters, so it's kind of one of those things.

Also, you need to do a background.

There is a lot of awesome to this drawing. Like the impossible staff. And the number of cares given by Drano.

That earring looks kinda heavy, though. o3o

Good thing he has the giant ears to support it.
