The Tales He Told Us by Yzabel The Tales He Told Us by Yzabel
He was the captain and we were the crew
He gave the orders, we knew what to do
Out on the ocean, just my friends and me
Waltzing the waters and dancing the sea

—Captain Bogg and Salty, Waltz of the Waves

Media | Time | Soundtrack


English:
After many hours of trying to get Photoshop, and my computer as a whole, to work by 35°C... here comes, in all its coloured glory and pearls and jewels and stuff, the final version of the Chaldean, the Eshu captain of the pirate ship Wyvern.

The Wyvern and her crew were created for :iconrapunzelita:'s 1620 Sorcerer's Crusade game. The Chaldean (here in his human form, not his Fae mien) claims to be a 3000-year-old Eshu who's been sailing the seven seas and more for approximately just as long. Of course, everybody knows Eshus tell a lot of stories, half of which aren't exactly true. But who cares? He remains the ship's badass captain all the same. And what is true is that he also has a serious tendency to pile up various artifacts and other somewhat magickal items on the ship, gathered from the Gods know where throughout the world.

Français:
Après bien des heures passées à tenter de faire marcher Photoshop et mon PC par 35°C... voici donc, dans toute sa splendeur colorée et bien bling-bling, la version finale du Chaldéen, capitaine Eshu du vaisseau pirate La Vouivre.

La Vouivre et son équipage ont été créés par :iconrapunzelita: et ses joueurs tous fous pour une série de petits scénarii à Sorcerer's Crusade en 1620. Le Chaldéen (ici sous sa forme humaine, pas féérique) prétend avoir dans les 3000 ans et avoir sillonné les sept mers et au-delà pendant à peu près autant d'années. Bien sûr, tout le monde sait que les Eshus racontent beaucoup, beaucoup d'histoires, dont la moitié sont fort... enjolivées. Ceci dit, l'équipage s'en fout, parce que son capitaine poutre bien sa race, mine de rien. Ce qui est vrai, par contre, c'est qu'il a une tendance notoire à la collectionite chronique d'artefacts et d'objets plus ou moins magiques, récupérés les Dieux seuls savent où à travers le monde.

Clouds texture by :iconnos2002:. I still suck at doing backgrounds. On the other hand, working on complex 300 dpi backgrounds on an EeePC 1000H clearly in hot summer isn't exactly 'setting myself up for success' in that regard. ^^;

I just love how this picture seems to pop out due to the complimentary colors. I also love how you decorated his outfit with stars. It's very pretty. Lovely work.

Thank you! I had a hard time at first with the background colours (everything else seemed to stifle the character's colours). In the end, I can only notice that once again, complementary tints are a good way to go. ^^

The stars were something my Storyteller (the one who created this char) told me to put on. It was quite fun to try to design a somewhat pirate-looking outfit with so much starry bling on it. XD

Thank-You way cool... I am thinking you did succeed in capturing the theme of what the game called for in your perspective.

Oh yeah, he's a charmer, for sure. (And every time the ship reaches port, brothel dwellers are happy to see him. XD)

Thank you for the :+fav:, by the way. :)

Superbe travail! :D Le décor est simple, certes mais il en jette!
Du coup, j'ose plus colorier ton lineart puisque j'avais exactement les mêmes couleurs à l'esprit ^^;

Je vois pas où est le problème, même avec des couleurs très similaires, le résultat sera toujours différent, et donc intéressant. :)

Ca jette et ce garçon a une allure pas banale, à mi-chemin entre le pirate et le magicien façon Disney. Ce qui est sûr, c'est qu'il aime les bijoux ! J'aime sa pose déhanchée ^^ Et pour le décor en ombres chinoises, ça fait son effet, si si, je compatis totalement sur le côté chiant des décors ! Tu t'en es bien sortie :clap: Et puis enfin les couleurs sont complémentaires (bleu + orange, c la seule combi que je connaisse niveau complémentarité, LOL)

Ah pour l'apparence et les couleurs, j'ai suivi les indications de ~rapunzelita. Il aime beaucoup le bleu et les trucs qui brillent (bon, d'un autre côté, j'ai quand même réussi à éviter l'effet Barracuda XD). J'ai eu du mal au niveau des couleurs du fond, et du coup, bah oui, je sui bêtement partie sur la complémentarité, ça au moins on sait que ça marche toujours. ^^;

J'ai encore du mal avec les décors, c'est clair, mais quand en plus on ajoute le matos sur lequel je travaille, ça ne donne même pas les moyens de se forcer et de bosser vingt heures sur le même décor pour s'améliorer... J'aime beaucoup mon netbook, c'est juste qu'il n'est pas fait pour les grands chaleurs ni pour les logiciels qui sucent. Normal, tu me diras. :|
