Curunir's Art

Post  Curunir on Thu Oct 24, 2013 4:45 am

I don't know if I'm actually going to put many things here, but I do occasionally dabble in random things like art.

I just recently felt inspired to draw an upcoming (?) NPC for my campaign A New World.  Style's something new for me, drew it by hand and then traced the outlines on the computer.  Turned out better than I expected.  

Seven Macaw the Draconequus:


And again, with some slight editing and putting in a background (not mine: from http://mlp-vectorclub.deviantart.com/art/Everfree-Forest-Path-386157248 )

Cool! Although it does make me a bit nervous to hear we might have an encounter with a Draconequus later on.

More pictures:  Some griffons this time.  (Griffons are hard!  Wouldn't have thought they'd be harder than a draconequus...)

Made a mistake when tracing- forgot to make a new layer, so it ended up a bit sloppy.  Maybe I'll try again later.

Again, for my "A New World" Campaign.   Warriors of the Coatltec Empire:

Eagle Warrior:

Jaguar Warrior:


Both Warriors (Edited for Fun):
Edited and put in a background (same as last time, I think, just a different place in the picture) for fun, despite it showing off the particularly poor job I did tracing my image using the computer

Completely redid Seven Macaw after taking some advice from Lapis-Lazily

Thanks Lapis!

EDIT: Still getting more advice! Thanks again! We'll see if I can improve more next time I draw/redraw something.

New and Improved Seven Macaw:



Took me most of yesterday and today to do (including figuring out exactly how to do it)

Boomer looks a tad-male-ish... And that fits in my head, cuase she was built build and junk.... Nice. I like her.

Magnificent! Fantastic work, Curunir!

...I think 62 is actually an Earth Pony, though. Still, you've now given me an actual mental image of what he and Boomer look like! Thank you!

Pfft Shallow's face looks so goofy. Reminds me of Picasso. Dan vs Smiles

I kind of pictured our ship to be a bit bigger too, considering it's meant for long-duration travel / living in. Sails pretty much look the part though, though they lack a pirate flag.

Xel- well, you did say she should look gender ambiguous, so it seems I succeeded?  Though I suppose "looking a tad-male-ish" and "gender ambiguous" aren't exactly the same.  Oh well.

Lyntermas-  Oops, you're completely correct!  I'll have to fix that at some point.  That's what happens when I only have descriptions to go off of.  It's not actually mentioned there, you know.... I just would have needed to scroll down a little more to see "Race: Earth Pony"

And I agree, having a clearer mental image is really nice!  Particularly Boomer and 62, as you note, since they only had descriptions to go off of.

Zarhon- Based the ship off of http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/5/50/Vincennes-sloop-Currier-Ives.jpeg , given to me by Tyger.  It is a sloop-of-war, a smallish sort of ship.  I maybe could have made the ponies a bit smaller in relation to the ship.  And I can definitely go about adding a pirate flag  pirat (didn't spend as much time on the ship as I could have, got excited about the ponies and putting it up here in a timely manner)

Glad you enjoyed them, I'll get to making those couple fixes... sometime.

Well I think the only problem is that she looks slightly more male-ish then needed like she could use some eyelashes or something to help put the gender clearly in "unknown for sure" instead of "I think it's male" that she has right now. And maybe could use a little more robotic-ish style in her appearance would help too. But outside of those two minor things that she is perfect.

Could you make Shallow's head/face a bit less 'uncanny' looking (chin/snouts seem a bit out of proportion/boxy/elongated, compared to where his neck is)? 62 could go for some of that as well.

The Very First Sentence of Sixty-Two's backstory wrote:Hello. I am sixty-two, an earth pony of very little renown.

I didn't think I needed to reiterate, but apparently...

...ah well. It's not like it's a bad picture anyway. Good job, Curunir.

D'aww, Brilli looks adorable! You even did her cutie mark which I just briefly described in one place once. Great job! Smile

Alright, tried to implement Zarhon's suggestions (please let me know if I actually did what you wanted, or are still getting it wrong, overdid it, etc.), and fixed 62's race (again, sorry about that AProc!  I feel really stupid now that I could have seen that in two places - I think I only copied down the info in your "description" section when I was working on it).  Don't know why I didn't realize I didn'tknow what kind of pony he was- probably just had a bad pony-racist moment there.

Fixes:



Retro:  Thanks!

Well, it is on your character sheet, even if not on the PC image!  I do try to read the descriptions people give, especially when there's no reference image for something.  Otherwise I'd just ask, as I've had to do with some of Xel's characters.

I like the way you did Carat, but she's not sparkly enough for a crystal pony (sorry, I OCD on sparkles).

Looks much better now, no longer a Picasso.  Very Happy 

Think it's okay the way you changed it, but still seems slightly 'off' somewhere. Not sure where though. Might be just me being nitpicky.

The neck/chin, maybe? I think the line that makes the bottom of his chin stand out from his neck is slightly too "long" (makes his neck seem too 'thin' where it connects to the head, or something?).

Edit: Also noticed now, his ears appear to be vastly different proportions / odd looking (the one hidden by his mane looks huge), compared to each other.

Now I notice what looks off about Carat. It's been bugging me, but I couldn't identify it until now, blaming it on lack of glitter: you forgot the silver markings! Also, I know I never mentioned this on the character sheet (and didn't think of it until now), but her cutie mark looks like her hair piece, but the tips of the petals swirl around and around like the milky way.

Hey Curunir. I have decided I need an avatar, and also to test my descriptive powers.

You're in my Warehouse campaign; can you draw your impression of Artisian Maverick for me? I can edit it into an avatar from there.

Crystalite: I'd be happy to do that! I'll probably get around to doing the whole group sometime, maybe even including Farnsworth and Sudsy as well. But I'll prioritize Arty for you. I'd appreciate a more detailed description, although I could work from what you've given so far (just don't expect it to match your vision of the character perfectly if you don't give me specifics!)

I don't know when I'll get around to that though, honestly (nor any of my earlier art which could use fixing) I've actually somehow managed to get commissioned to do a few characters for a pony Alpha Centauri Mod (http://sriseru.deviantart.com/journal/Alpha-Equulei-A-Call-to-Artists-432630370) so what time I devote to doing art will probably be occupied with that for a little while.

Everyone else: Just wanted to again make it clear I most certainly do appreciate your feedback- it's definitely helped me improve! I will try to implement your suggestions sometime- I just have a tendency to move on to new projects rather than refine old ones.

Crystalite wrote:Maverick is a taller, thinner unicorn stallion, with a brown coat and purple mane/tail. His cutie mark is consistently covered by the jacket he wears, and he generally refuses to discuss what might be underneath. He is a fairly serious sort of pony, but doesn't let formality get in his way.

Besides that...

He keeps his hair fairly messy, primarily out of laziness. The jacket is a dark brown, whereas his fur is more of a lighter tan. Speaking of, that jacket is in fact long enough to drape back over his flank and nearly reach his rear ankles. It has lots of pockets and a wide collar like a business coat. He may or may not wear glasses; I'm not married to the idea though.
