Chibi Rune

Posted Feb 5, 2018, 2:34:10 PM

The next of the series of chibis I started--Rune, of course, as he's my favorite <3

His sheet is a little bit different, as the items I chose for his inventory are all things he's mentioned as having in his possession throughout the story I'm writing for him. Lots of nonsensical odds and ends that he just happens to pick up and like. One of the other characters in the book remarks at one point that he must have the soul of a crow, instead of a lizard.

The initial drawing was pencil and ink, like with the chibis of Laele and Arrios, but I ended up not being satisfied with the cleanliness of the lineart in those... so I re-inked this one digitally before coloring.

I also did something really different with this one and posted a video of the coloring process on YouTube! It's nothing special, but it was something fun and different.

Hopefully I'll have the next one done by the end of the month.

    Oh, that's cute! Nice swishy cape, and somehow his little pout really makes it for me.

      Thanks! He's so grouchy all the time, it seemed perfect :3

    The wrinkling of the cape came out well.

      Thanks ^^; I actually spent longer redrawing that than I should have. It was harder than I felt it should have been.
