[Begin post you won’t care about a crappy doodle I made during class of an unknown character from an underrated webcomic you don’t read]
Would you believe, after three years, my wishes for the character actually became true? I mean, he’s been King since a few pages now but that’s the first glimpse we have of him looking positively regal.
Someone pinch me.
I’m not sure how it happened, but a post on my dash got me started on a massive trawl of the Tolkien’s dwarves tag and I ended up somehow discovering this most excellent (ongoing) story, Sansûkh by Determamfidd.
I could praise it all day, but I’ll spare you. Anyway, the thing is, it totally rekindled my feelings over Legolas and Gimli’s relationship.
Here’s a Brienne redesign… you can see the TV show’s subtle influence on how I draw her now compared to two years ago… Even with the scar, she’s way too cute! Cute as a button, welp
stupid sexy Fland…Gwendoline Christie. Still! Drew her with more sensible pauldrons and armor design all-around (it helps once you get to interact with the real thing), dropped the chain for the sort of padded cloth/coat of plate gambeson she wears in the series, then gave her a vague attempt at Oathkeeper… and a flail ‘cuz AWW YISS.
Hrm… should I color her in Photoshop if I find the time?
Whoops randomly doodling noses in Paint turned into these guys my hand must have slipped or something
Try to imagine your beloved technology in a totally different aestethic context.
Inspired by Anita Sarkeesian’s Video Game Tropes vs Women, I wanted to pitch a Zelda game where Zelda herself was the hero, rescuing a Prince Link.
Clockwork Empire is set 2,000 years after Twilight Princess, and is not a reboot, but simply another iteration in the Zelda franchise. It just so happens that in this case, Zelda is the protagonist. I’m a very big Zelda fan, and worked hard to draw from key elements in the continuity and mythos.
This concept work is meant to show that Zelda as a game protagonist can be both compelling and true to the franchise, while bringing new and dynamic game elements that go farther than being a simple gender swap.
Hope you like it!
