Hello! laugh.gif

I've been lurking in this forum for a while, so I might as well introduce myself. I've played Nexus for a while as a warrior. I'm that guy who people often mistake as a rogue because of the Hanfu garb. My registration expired yesterday, and I have finals soon. Therefore I think it's best to NOT renew til finals are over. In the meantime, I browse Nexusforums, and I just love the art shown here. <3

I notice that there are just so many characters that are iconic, be it in their appearance, personality or both...

I want to try drawing them, so here goes nothing. First up is Winder. I hope it's not against Barbarian law to draw them or anything.
IPB Image

We all know him as that white-haired elder with the dread platemail and dry wit. First thing that came to my mind is that he shouldn't be pretty (sorry, Mhul), but battle-scarred and tough. I improvised a bit on the platemail, but haven't designed his greaves (feet armor). I'll do his fullbody pic soon...

Please give feedback! I will appreciate it. Except, uh, coloring. I have very little experience in that ( ._.)

The artwork is great, if only Winder could live up to his drawing! (Sorry had to pick on Winder)

What medium are you using? Looks almost like sharpie or pen or I'm completely blind.

Very realistic, a different spin on the nexus chars.

Very good job!

Oh wow, very awesome. I'm sure Winder will squeal (in an ever-so-manly way of course) when he sees this!

Very nice! As much as I like the cartoon-ey stuff, this is a nice version too. biggrin.gif

I sketch using pencil, then I scan and work over it using a graphic tablet on a different layer on Photoshop. So it's basically digital. I use the brush tool, so it does look sort of like a Sharpie biggrin.gif
It takes time, but it's clean and smudge-free, unlike my pencil drawings...

"I squee here."
Oh Winder, more witty remarks and less mug impersonation, please sad.gif

Very nice work. If I was still working on Stat Addict i'd be begging you for an artistic rendering. You do a good job of catching attitude in your drawing.

I am impressed! I have a more cartoony version of myself drawn by Killeh and I'll post that here for all to see.

The one thing I would say though, is that the real Winder has legs and doesn't float in the air from his armor! smile.gif Which you realize yourself.

But in the great words of mug: "i smile here."

When this picture was drawn, it was back when I was in black platemail and black hair (like 18 months ago?)

Here is all the other Winder stuff:

Other postcard shows Barbarian circle, which I am not going to reveal unless it wins the contest.

Oh, and I almost forgot about this, I made it for Darkbrood:

The drawing is great but that attitude seems to reflect Crumble way more than Winder.

Maybe we just see Winder in a different way.

I see him with a huge smile on his face 24/7, with puffy cheeks.

*Shrug*

Crumble lacks my intensity. That "smile" is the last thing you see before you die.

No more herb pipes for you.

As for the art, I love it.
It's a nice change from the usual anime style we see around here (not that there's anything wrong with it) and look forward to seeing more of your drawings of iconic people.
*tries to look as iconic as possible*

Oh, I just realized something about the very shmexy picture that you drew Garr.

It looks similar to Arthas in Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. tongue.gif

Just bigger feet! Winder has dainty feet. It allows him get around and smite faster while making less noise tongue.gif

That is NOT Winder. He's neither TOWNIE~!'ing you as you read the boards nor sticking his tongue out at you.

EDIT:
