So it has been a VERY long time since I've posted any of my drawings here :o
I peeked at my old drawings and oh god, i instantly felt the need to update on my progress o.o

A collection of original concept character I've been drawing. It started of with just me writing a story but i felt as though i needed to actually create a visual version of the characters, so here they are n.n

Thank you for viewing :)

so been busy with preparing for another semester of Graphic Study, haven't been able to draw as much as I'd like. BUT - here is a WIP(work in progress).
http://fc04.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2012/198/8/e/her_own_eyes___wip_by_boombza-d57kg0h.png

Original Character Concept// WIP
-----------------------------------------
My other character seemed to have more character/soul due to the fact that you could see their eyes, so i wanted to draw Imogen without her helmet. I adjusted my style for this one, just decided to make it a tad more realistic that's all.
-----------------------------------------
Will upload the finished product when its done

Nice drawing :)
I like the traces, they're pretty soft and artistic.
The hair (so as that thing holding it that I know how's said in english xD), the right hear, the right eye, the right eyebrow, the lips, the armor (especially in the neck area and the right arm), her right gloved hand, those details are all very good.
I also like very much that dark and white round thing bellow her neck, what's it btw? I'm curious :p
I really like the drawing as it is, few things I think could be changed: the left eyebrown (for some reason you have not defined it) and the left eye, which is too closed.
Also, I think the armor in the left shoulder is too over proportioned, those are the only three less got thinks I find in your drawing :)

And you maybe wanna try colouring it, sure it would be even more awesome, thanks a lot for sharing your work ^^

Its a work in progress so its not finished, hence the left eye brow and pretty much the whole armor.

hahaha her left eye is more closed because she has a lazy eye :P I prefer characters to have visual imperfections, i think it gives them more personality rather than looking at something that is "golden rule" perfect.

alrite little thinsg about her, they have a story behind them;
The thing on her hair is a hair pin hehe, one of her close friends gave it to her before he died, it belonged to his mother.

the madalien like thing under her neck is a crest. Normally if you look on my other Von Drack family character, you see that they have two crest.
One displays their family heritage and the other displays their own heritage, where they were bought up. Imogen only has one that shows where she was raised and grew up, she doesnt display ehr family crest, simply because she hates her family, more so her father.
I can go into it much mroe as all these characters have a back story :P

The left shoulder is, yeh... hehe a little mistake, but its still concept for i accept these mistakes. I need to work on the perspective of her armor much more.

And colouring isnt my thing :P
But i'll think about giving it ago, thanks for the feedback n.n
I'll be sure to link when its done.

Ok, I see, so you're forgiven xD That's pretty original! :D And I like the concept :p So she's a lazy lady?
Imogen... I love that name! Also thanks for telling her story, really interesting! So, you make your cool drawings, create personages, give them personalities and background stories? Do you also write manga with them?

Ah ah, I guess it's ok, lol, your traces are pretty cool by theirselves, I love how you differenciate the traces, gives a lot of depth to it rather than just plain lines, and kinda compensates the missing of colour, again good job!

Glad you appreciated my comments and you're welcome, looking foward to see it finished :D

Not happy with how her right arm turned out with the shield, its too complicated to see for other people i think. Even tho i can tell whats there.

Wow your works are amazing. Have you ever tried getting into digital works? The fine detail in these is something to marval at. I'm not much help with traditional art but it seems as if Libila! the Goddess of Darkness's neck is a bit long? I know you can't fix it by now but it just seems like it's longer than it should be. But that could just only be me. Keep it up :3

boombza
03-02-2013, 11:59 AM
Um, what kind of digital work?(im a graphic designs student)
Yeh Your probably right about the neck being a tad too long..

I really like traditional drawings of people, especially pencil drawings.
I want to keep getting better and better :D

Revisited an OC and changed her design just a tad.
Also got a WIP of another old OC "Aella". Will update when I'm done with her :)

Side note: I think I'll always keep this thread updated with every drawing I show, this site was the first site I ever posted any of my drawings on(back in 2008) so I think it only makes sense for me to keep coming back :P

Thanks for the comments!
My style has slowly but surely getting better as the months go on.
I started to understand more and more about why you do certain things, every line should have a reason for being where they are and being the way they are. While its not perfect, I'll continue to develop my own style while studying other techniques and this thread should reflect my journey. So I'm glad to have some people tagging along with me :)

Oh my sweet baby Jesus of Jerusalem, these are brilliant. O_O Your sketches are really inspiring me to start drawing up some of my older OCs again. Vynora and Libila are my favorites (especially the Wurm one). The way you shade out the water's movement is stunning. Plus the poses and angles you choose really intensify all of your drawings.

Ah Thank you very much :)
You should definitely work on your OC and of course make a thread showing them off!
Creating an Original Character as a figure artist I think is very important, it pretty much just allows you to create a test subject for different styles. Best example is "Artgerm" and his OC Pepper. And I love seeing other OC by different artist, I think it both reflects originality and experience.
