Laying Down the Idea


Desert Mercenary Jackal, Infinite [Design] by sonicolas

This little project started as a Halloween costume design. Before working on an illustration, a character sheet was made. I wanted Infinite to look a bit like Anubis and Set from the Egyptian mythology. A description of his design can be found on the character sheet's gallery entry description. 
このプロジェクトはハロウィーンの衣装デザインについて始めました。今回イラストを描く前にキャラクターデザインをしましたエジプト神話のアヌビスとセトに似るインフィニットを描く予定するのでした。衣装デザインの詳細はキャラクターデザインの作品のキャプションに読められます。

I wanted to make sure that all key elements of his design are visible such as his heterochromia, his talisman, his sword, and his power. So I chose this pose.
デザインの要点は目に見えるようにしましてこのポーズを選びました。例えば、インフィニットさんの虹彩異色症、お守り、刀、力など。

Up to here, some more details have been added to the initial design. For example, the ankh tied to the earring, the rings on the sash, the toe rings, the bracelet carvings, and so on.
イラストを描きながならデザインに細部を追加しました。それはイヤリングを付けアンク、帯揚げ付けリング、足の指輪、ブレスレットの細部など。

And finally, the effects and background have been added. I wanted to this to look like something you'd see when receiving a unit from those gacha games, ahha. 5 star unit get!
ついに景色とエフェクトを加えました。ガチャにユニットを受け取る場面のようにようにしましたw。5★ユニットGET!

目覚めた力をみせてやろうぜ!
Let me show you my awakened power!

Wouldn't it be nice for Infinite to come back as a sword user and an illusionist at the same time? Imagine the kind of abilities he'd have.
インフィニットがソードを使ながら魔法使いとして戻ってきたらいいと思いわないのですか?すごい能力をイメージしています。

Desert Mercenary Jackal, Infinite [Design]
Since Infinite is a jackal, and that his early design was Egyptian-themed, I couldn't help but to revisit that theme with his final design.
This design was meant for Halloween. Of course, I was not able to publish it in time (I blame the animation!)

I wanted to play with his asymmetric design with this outfit, so the main idea was to have the blue-eyed side to be physical-focused, and the yellow-eyed side to be spiritual.
On the physical side, he's wearing bandages around his wrist, typically seen on people protecting it from injuries. He's also right-handed, so this made it really easy to make it the side that wields his sword.
On the spiritual side, I made his wear jewelries such as an earring and bracelets. Spell-weavers tend to have these fancy accessories after all.
In a way, this incorporated both Seth and Anubis's characteristics onto him.

I obviously kept his characteristic gem, except that it's a neck talisman this time, haha.
The sword is based on the Egyptian Khopesh but shares a lot of characteristics with his old blade: It's mainly red and has an S-shaped cross-guard. If you look closely, it also has his infinite logo where the pommel is.

Speaking of his logo, it's also incorporated in the ankh earring he's wearing. XP

What I learned from this? Designing is hard. And character design sheets take longer than I thought lol.

I'm a software engineer who happens to draw when time is available (or when the urge to do so materializes.. at very bad times more often than not). I'm also very critical of my work, which contributes to the fact that I don't post much of it nowadays. Working to change that, however!

I'm obviously a diehard and long time Sonic the Hedgehog fan. I'm more a fan of his universe and characters than simply the games (although I do find the latter quite enjoyable too). More likely than not, you'll find me drawing characters of this particular franchise.

This doesn't mean that I don't have any other interests. I also happen to be a fan or Rockman EXE and Digimon among other things.
