Whoa, I never expected the forums to be up ever again after it’d been down for so long! It’s nice to see some old faces still here, and all the new too
Well, my art’s improved (I feel) over the last near-year. Got some finalized character designs:
Scroope, my very thin and fire obsessed scientist. He has a problem with gaining “mass”, their language for weight based on how thick their plating can get. It’s not for his lack of trying, he eats a lot! His left arm and right leg are prosthetic’s he built himself… it’s best to not ask. I haven’t drawn him in 9 years, so it was nice to finally do so again. I kept his overall earth-tone feel to his design, spare for the Science Branch logo on his jacket. He was originally mostly various shades of brown and grey, with the green eyes.

And here’s spoopy Skerton. He’s also way thin, though that’s due to his age. The older his race-type gets, the thinner and stronger they become. He’s part of the rebellion, and even though he knows the identities of his fellow masked rebellion-ers, nobody knows his. His companion, of whom is the same race, doesn’t take care to really hide her identity as much as he does. He used to be red, black, grey, and blue. But I thought to switch it up to an orange based upon his background and past. I have a progression thing on my stash on my DA for those interested in his past designs: https://sta.sh/02awzjaxsqr
Lastly, here’s a finished by not final design of another character:
Peruthal, my first ever original character. Finally, after nearly a decade, he’s come back to life! I still have a few little details I’d like to add to his design to make sure his uniform really feels military-esc. He used to be a Captain until he obtained his position of maintaining the military on the Council. He’s been the most successful and most beloved person to have been in his position, and I know I adore him as well. He may be a bit over-emotional at times and quick to rely on his gut, and he’s shy in admitting his romantic interest in someone on the medical board despite being older and experienced in romance, but I really like how his character has developed.
