School stuff: Imp King Ro' by SynDuo School stuff: Imp King Ro' by SynDuo
(( Development sketches: [link] ))

He sure has changed. Remember Ro? [link]

Work I did for my class, I thought I post it here.

The character, RoPahPhi, is an old character, and during my class i chose him to be developed on further, I'm not particularly proud of any of these pieces but I don't necessarily dislike them. Personally I wish I worked on something else during my last term. But now with the Term being over I can go back to my Tom and Coal comics and other art.

But yeah, these were done for a grade, so I had to crank them out. Feel free to comment or crit, Trust me I KNOW i could have done better, but hard to do when your out of stamina in a long long term full of so many uninteresting test and projects.

This guy makes me smile, you have no idea XD. He's seems to have some real moxy! =D

Also, I love his design, especially his hair and horns.

Aren't little critters like this always fun? Just as they should be! Is this all we're going to see of him, though? If so, I'm gonna miss 'im. =( (If I can figure that out be looking through your gallery, gimmie a minute. XD)

In short these were concept posters, nothing more, nothing less. just a simple showcase of the character in his environment , which is the cave and the castle's telescope.

Animation class must be cool...I took a super intro one in 11th grade but it was for mostly 3d animation with 3dmax and I wasn't that crazy about the 3d...
(I dunno if this is for 2d or 3d though XD)

I still think it looks awesome though! Its great how you can add all that variety with a simplistic style. :)

I meant to comment on this sooner, but I've been somewhat of a procrastinator lately.... :(

I like the usual attention to detail here. Nice lighting as always. The character design is nice, he's very cute. He's very adorable, though I'd like to see him from other angles. He seems to be looking in the same direction. I'd definitely like to see more of him, see him react to things, to get a better idea of his personality and so forth. There's lots of potential for this guy, and I'd like to see more!

Well the backgrounds for this piece are simply amazing and of course there is all of your trademark zany fantasy. I think the only thing bad I could really say about this piece is that you can kind of tell that your heart wasn't really much into it. There's just something about the character that's so much more tame and less energized compared with what we see from some of your best works. But the coloring and design really is great!

I thank you for your honesty , I always welcome it. Most of the reason my heart wasn't into this one was due to the fact that I kept on beating the due date time, originally it was ment to be a 3 week project, I Completed it in six hours, teacher liked it so much he demanded two new compositions due to my speed =P So basically I screwed myself, I think the course was designed for folks who had no prior experience.

Thank you for commenting, it's always nice to see you :)

I think you did pretty good, actually. The night tones and purple character color makes him look pretty cool and devious, while the backgrounds and attention to detail add to the intrigue of wanting to know about the environment they're in.

For a grade, I hope that it's a good one; you deserve the A.

I dont' have a premium account... but since when has that ever stopped me!? XDD

Firstly, I'd like to say that you are being WAY too harsh on yourself. You're saying you cranked this out for a grade? You darn well should've gotten an A+. I think I'll go through these in order.

I LOVE that first one! The metal of the telescope is excellent and I love the simple details of the water and the lens. The design in the moon works out perfectly and the color choice is perfect to contrast the warm hues in the foreground and the darker ones that comprise the bg. Helps to focus your sight to where the action is. XD The stars are a bit too dotty and too sharp. They seem almost pixelated as well as the end of his staff.

The second is is also excellently done. Again, your eyes are drawn to the center of the piece and the colors all go together so well. The clouds look really cool and also help to give it perspective. But I think they might be curved inwards a bit too much and appear as if they're emanating from the castle. I see more pixelated things (like his staff and the light emanating from the staff) and I, personally, kinda like it. It seems to go well. Is that your personal style? I'm still unfamiliar with your work. XD I dunno. But it has it's cool side I admit. Also, the building top looks slightly crooked.

The third one is nice as its a change of pace. I see you went with softer edges and it looks good. Fitting for the background and the daytime and everything. Love taht sun glare always an awesome touch. X3 Clouds looks pretty cool too.

The character design, overall, is really cool. He's gotten quite the upgrade and I like it! The extra white trim on the cloak gives him a regal standing and it goes well with the overall color scheme. The more modest crown is also a nice touch. Hope this critique helps you in some way. I think you did excellent work on this and it was great to see the production sketches and all. Great work! Keep at it!

I thank you for you're input, I love the first one the most as well, it was just the most fun to work on. Just to let you know the bottom poster was actually the first one. Reason why i'm hard on myself here is cause I didn't have a good time drawing these, it became tedious since originally I was suppose to do only one poster at a time, but I cranked out the coloring too fast and the professor suggested that I should push out more. That's fine but I was annoyed since I don't think i pushed what i had to work with into better settings.

Thanks again though :) The crown to be honest I believe still needs work, but I'm glad you like the changes.
