And here’s Louander’s partner Maclin Jarno, the primary central character of Theos Ke Basilea. He will be embroiled in the momentum of events that are far greater than he, events and changes kicked off in Theos Ke Polemos. Indus, like Polemos is caught in the winds of massive change and he and his fellow I.P.I.O. officers begin to see the strangeness though the caseload that begins to cross their desks. These guys end up investigating the Lovecraftien elements that creep into the story. All the I.P.I.O. officers have Taedus use systems to assist them in their duties, that means they all have a taedus sendai combat mecha partnered with them, the work is too dangerous otherwise. Unlike FOILs which are large combat sendai frames piloted by a human inside, taedai are actually smaller than humans and psychically bonded with the partner. Maclin is a character with many secrets and mysterious ties to another character in the Theos arc.

Very interesting pair of characters you've got here. You've even given us quite a bit of info about them too. Nice cel-shading work!

Thank you kindly :) There will be more character art in the future, I have a lot planned, only time to sort out getting to it all.

(just got the chance to comment today)

Awesome Cgi work. While being simple color wise, the shading is still deliciously complex. Also, the details on the clothing itself is what makes the picture come together. (I have a weakness for clothing design (charachters in general), none of my clothes look like they could actually be worn.)

When you draw charachter concepts for the animation projects, do you end up drawing sheets filled with various poses? Or is this one concept usually enough to go off of for the animators?

Hey man :) Good to see you here :D This is just more or less a promo style pin up deal. For animation spec sheets it would have to be front, back and various head shots. I have a lot of that stuff coming too, A LOT. Glad you dig it, these two characters (previous post chara) will appear again, no question :) I just got a freelance gig in the can that was eating a lot of time so I'll be posting again soon here. Thanks for the good words :)

No problem mate. I just wanted you to know that you did not loose a fan. :3

Do you have any interoir shots floating around? I've seen some external shots around the web, but not yet any scenes from the insides of buildings.
VulnePro's avatar
I have had a few older ones but nothing new, there will be a lot of that in the future and possibly other artists doing that stuff as well. I've been uber busy with freelance but things are smoothing out so I can balance freelance with this stuff. There will be a lot coming, a lot. Keep peeping scraps too as there's a lot of props and such in there.
Daemoria's avatar
(ugh, teh typos are with me tonight)

Yeah, I'll keep an eye on your scraps.

So, can you not post your freelance stuff online? Becuase by 'limiting' the art in your gallery to the Theos universe, you are only showing us half of your art. (or less :p )

Some freelance has been posted in there actually, Dreamwave Transformers, Palladium, The DJ Acucrack CD cover. The stuff I'm doing now I can't post yet and a few aren't worth posting, just work for hire. I will post stuff when I can though :) There's also some projects in Non Disclosure Agreement territory so I can't post anything from those.
Daemoria's avatar
Ah, the dreaded NDA. Understandable...but still a shame.

In any case, I shot you an email, you should have it by now. That will be the place you can contact me with information on the 'collab' projects.
Oh, post a comment on the Dymetheos Strider mech when you have a passing moment to spare, I'm interested in what you'll think of it. (it's my latest deviation)
VulnePro's avatar
I'm replying now to the e-mail and will send you a detailed Theos synopsis. Yeah some stuff is in NDA and still gestating.

This ones really good too! I like the simple cell shaded style, and the character himself looks quite interesting. I really enjoy your attention to clothing/uniform details. :)
VulnePro's avatar
Thanks a lot man :) Well appreciated. I'm glad these guys went over so well as it's just a peek at things to come.

Veryw elld oen indeed!! I like the coat and shoe design, but the whole atmosphere and vibe of the clothes from both characters really brings out the setting to me. Great deal and consistency!!!

Looking fwd to seeing this in totality for sure, i'm gonna be like a kid again
VulnePro's avatar
Thanks man. It's been awhile that I've done anything with these characters, I just belted out both real quick between doing other stuff, our gig included.
