Chris Corona [Colored]

Finally! After many hours putting into designing, drawing, and coloring him I finally got my original character, Chris Corona, done with most of the errors with his previous drawing fixed!

You can look up his previous artwork here:

Anyway right to my drawing I was trying to get that anime coloring applied to him which makes him look like he came from an anime, but... I couldn't find ANY tutorials that does that! I wanted to get his appearance to appear like those ".hack/LINK" character arts that was used for the trailer and game. I couldn't figure out how they do it nor could I find a tutorial to replicate that technique.

Hopefully I'll get someone to help me with that. My character does look kinda cool with the coloring, but maybe I should've made his head a little thinner maybe? I feel like I didn't get his eyes, right either... next time I'll try to see what I can do.

I really like your opinions, especially on how to improve the coloring to match some of the anime promotional artwork and game art, like .hack//LINK and the Tales games!

EDIT: 7/14/2012
I've updated Chris Corona by extending the length of the shorts, added a bit more shading, and fixed his right sock (I didn't like how it original was). I like this version a lot better now as his shorts are how they should be, over his knees.

Time me what you think of the updated version!

do you have any potential voice actors for him?

So far I haven't found or heard of a VA that captures the essence, the spirit, of Chris in English so I hadn't really picked out yet. He's got a young, but somewhat mature, teenage voice that is kinda childish a bit even for a 18 - 19 year old.

However I know what his Japanese VA would be which is 三瓶 由布子 (Yūko Sanpei) who also voiced Tokio from .hack//Link as that's how his Japanese voice would sound like. Still looking for his English VA or close to what I envision his voice to be.

Perhaps Veronica Taylor?

No... miss her as Ash Ketchum though... Chris' voice sounds a bit deeper but youthful than that with a hint of maturity underneath it. It's very hard to find the right voice for him.

then perhaps Brianne Siddal who voices tsukasa from .hack //SIGN?

he sounds youthful with a hint of maturity

No... seeing as Brianne Siddal voiced Junior in Xenosaga the voice for Chris Corona is deeper than that really but still has that youthful and high-spirited voice. But it's not high-pitched either.

Like I said it's hard to right the "right" voice for him in English. Japanese I got lucky to encountered the perfect voice for him, but English... not a lot of VAs that I've heard match the voice I envision for Chris.

Thank you very much! Though I'm planning on doing a bit of a re-design in the future, a touch up to his hair really and maybe more improving my ways of drawing his clothes. Still I'm glad he came out alright.

Did you come here from my Fanfiction page? That's cool if it's true.

I might need to tweak his designs a bit to make it more professional-like with other anime/manga artist but this is more or less his final design. I need to draw his "angry eyes" look which look scary and kickbutt in mind and I need it down on paper though this year I've been busy with three jobs at the moment.

And thanks! Though I need to make that ChrisxCasterxSaber drawing I have in mind where both Servants yank on the poor boy's arms declaring that he is their "Master". ^_^
Dracnix64's avatar
Yeah, I came here from your Fanfic!
I am very fond of it because there isn't that much OCxCaster(Fate Extra) that has a good plot and not some crack........
So....When's  the next update??

Why thank you! Took me days to finish it! Though I wish I could've done something better with the colors to get that promotional artwork feel to it. I wonder, do I have to save it as a .jpeg to get that quality since it changes it depending on the file? Hmm... needs investigation.

Well I did use Tokio's artwork as reference to help get the feel of the colors, so yeah I can see why you said that. And now you know what Chris looks like in my Fate/Extra fanfic. Tell me, is he exactly how you pictured him or close? Going to be working on the next chapter finally, plus I'm going to show a more strategic and tactical side to Chris in the next chapter during the Treasure Hunt.

Close in my imagination
But the drawing is amazing
I really like how you detailed him
VirusChris's avatar

I see...
Anyway the drawing isn't terrible impressive, there's a few errors with it I'm not happy with like the sock being too high on the right foot because the angle shouldn't let us see it like that.

Well I took my time working on him (days actually) so I'm glad you like it still! Though I mention he kinda looked like Shirou from F/SN... however he doesn't like it unless his hair had more spikes.

Anyway you can picture him and Caster (Tamamo-No-Mae) together now? I haven't worked on the next chapter yet, been busy and I need to work on some other drawings as well.

He sorta reminded me of one classic hero named Punky Skunk from the PS1 game.
Perk expression and the.detailed sneakers.
