The Return of LJ

Oh boy, I have a bad feeling about this place... the game isn't out yet, and I got lured in by CR... and I was just thinking of drawing some COH last week. But now I will have to change that to COT... Those main characters look fun... is there a page where the concept art is shown?

Anyway, for those who knew me, and who don't know me... my COH main was a cross between Superman & Spider Woman. Thus the iconic costume of red, yellow, and black... I used to do a lot of art for the COH community, even some commissions in my earlier hayday... alas I don't do those anymore for 2 reasons, time and sleep, both of which I have none of... well to spare.

But I used to love looking at character concepts and taking a stab at them... so this thread is for that type of art.

PLEASE NO REQUESTS.

2nd EDIT: ( for personal reasons, I will only do 1 piece per person... this is at my discretion, and does not include the sketch stage, which I don't count, and in that capacity I will also limit myself... but overall I do this to prevent burn out... hopefully everyone understands... )

If I gift you with something, it'll be because I couldn't help myself, and for no other reason than I had to draw...

Anyway you can call me LJ, or you can call me Bobby... It's so great to think our game has a future, I can't wait to play it.

Cheers all!

LJ

There I was complaining on Facebook (at 2 in the morning) that I had to get out of bed to ease my mind about my precious little leaking car standing in the poring rain by checking it and reparking it so I was sure the water wouldn't go to places where I wouldn't be able to reach it.... and this popped up!
Now, thát gave me an instant smile! I couldn't wait to see it finished...but really had to get me some sleep first...so... wow.. this is a good morning indeed!

Hahah, oh, wow, I'm sorry, I suck.
those are actually both pretty cool. I agree, something seems 'off' with the first one (is the neck too long?)

The ironman one looks really good..... but Orion doesn't exactly shoot 'blasts'.... he's a melee guy (think more like...uh.... captain falcon, from smash bros?.... actually I literally envision him fighting a lot like Nova from UMvC3: http://youtu.be/wwWzxzbb4Kc)

and the "collar" i was trying to draw... was supposed to be sort of like her collar:

not so much an armored collar to protect the neck....

I really like the current cowl-up look, but if you think cowl-down would look better, go for it....
if you need some other info or reference stuff, let me know.. i know where to look now :P

Yeah don't get hung up on the

Yeah don't get hung up on the proportions, all that gets fixed once you say go. I would never give you a long necked character, that was a 20 minute thumbnail sketch, so it was meant more for mood and placement. Details like proportion, color, expression those get refined as I work, but I would never give you a tight tight thumbnail sketch... there's no reason to work that hard, so early in the game... also this is free. I would charge you an arm and a leg if you were a client asking for tight finishes to begin with... not that I would ever show a paying client something this rough. Just saying time and place...

Anyway, okay so the more I hear about him, I will look for another approach. I liked the Iron Man, but you can't really see this collar you invested in... no pun intended. I think it's one of the cooler elements about him. Okay so gonna look at some Captain Marvels and Supermans... uh sorry I've never played UMvsCap3... I will look for some Nova footage though. As to the cowl down, I have an idea... I might crop the top so his hair can show through... if this is a cowl, no sense in keeping his head smooth, is it for aero dynamics? Or secrecy?

With his hair showing, it might look more like the actors you chose.

However if the head was preventative, say lined with kevlar, then I would keep the smooth cowl over all.

Question: Would his eyes show through the mask part? Or did you want the classic white eyes of Batman, Flash, GL...

Re: Eyes... totally not sure.

Re: Eyes... totally not sure... ive swung back and forth...

As for Nova in UMvC3... imagine super fast "quick" attacks, with like flaming punch and kick slow/powerful attacks. He always seems to be dashing or jumping only to strike with raw and awesome power (I clipped in a basic video... there's also a web show called "assist me!" that shows off his basic moves..)

I'm not too worried about him look exactly like the models... it's more about the "vibe"... it's not Superman quality "square-jaw-ness".... more like batman's toughness.... UNTIL he smiles, then all of a sudden he looks like your best friend or big brother or whatever. so those actors I thought has that sort of dual quality... a young looking gruffy/angry batman type who looks like a big puppy dog when he's smiling.

I'm really not sure about a mask up or mask down vibe..... I guess run one through the mill with the hood down, and see... but I had it on, originally, because it feels more... I don't know, pulpy or classic.... and In World, Orion is a hometown guy, and want's a normal life....
Also, I sort of worry about having the exposed-hair mask making him look TOO much like Booster Gold.

FYI... the stars on the ironman sketches look AWESOME. I really want to keep that look of "barely contained energy" moving forward :D

Ah k, well I can do one with eyes, and one without... I checked out the Nova footage, so I have a better understanding about movement and an idea for a new pose. I'm just gonna go ahead and do one from start to finish. I don't usually discuss my process anymore, and this isn't a commission. This kind of stuff I would reserve for a client mostly. As much as I'd like to get it right, this kind of thing could go one forever... so I'm just gonna bust one out. See ya tomorow... I'll keep the original cowl.

No I get it, you are the

No I get it, you are the creator, so normally I would want it to be the best it could be... but I fear if I don't strike while the iron is hot, I may lose interest, and I want you to have something done while my vibe for it is on a high. One of my main problems when I was doing commissions is taking on too many jobs. I would love doing the first 3, then the 4th one started to feel like a mountain... and sometimes I've had a dozen in the column. One of the reasons I agreed to come back to a forum like this, was to do more superhero stuff that has always inspired me. And to apply any new things I've learned over the years to new work.

I really liked your concept from the get go, so I am glad we have talked more and more about him. But now I think I am finally ready to work start to finish...

I hope you like the final.

As a writer with almost no art skill (i can compose some graphic design pieces, and such) there's always this desperate need to see my ideas captured visually....and this will be the first true iteration of a brand new character.
I'm Excited! :D

Ooh Hi Airhead! *waves*

Ooh Hi Airhead! *waves* Welcome (back) to the forums!

As an artist I totally get the whole "too much pressure" thing with commissions and requests. Which is why (amongst other why's) I put up the Art Request Thread. So people can request without any artist giving promises and therefor have no rush to finish things, but to draw for fun and/or practise, get feedback only when asked and make someone else happy along the way because of giving free art!

As a writer I too would love to see my stories in pictures! And eventhough I can manage a drawing... I can't seem to manage putting my stories into pictures hahaha. Oh well, can't have every talent, I suppose. .

I love seeing the progress of your drawings Bobby! It's a complete different style then how I do things and I find it very interesting. So thank you for sharing!

i think in my head, i was picturing something more like the first, but if you'd come up with this, i would have been just as ecstatic :D

(in all honesty, the 'final' version of the costume will likely draw from both of these images. i like the collar and slanted 'coat' look better on this second image, I think.... but losing the tassle shoulder bits and buckles, so i can have a smoother chest and the shoulder stars and superhero gloves of the original. You totally saw both sides of the character, my friend.... Grazie Mille!!

Not at all, earlier in the day when I was still in the grey scale zone... I had the shoulders as the original, as well as the gloves.... but it was missing something to me... which is why I went without the cowl... but this is your character, I just wanted to play around with what I was inspired to do when first reading your description, this is my earliest reaction to that.

By the way nice logo on the lettering, it reminds me that I need more fonts... but fonts are one of photoshops main flaws. I used to have tons, but they slowed up my system, cause everytime I started it, it had to load every single font... especially if you have preview set to show.

I love fonts... alas by the time I was done with your piece, I was too brain dead to think of designing a better logo. i see now I shouldn't of worried about that... looking forward to your hybrid.

yeah, i love fonts too....

yeah, i love fonts too.... they're actually half the reason i'm any good with photoshop. I've been making forum sig-pix for like two decades, and most reciently, was able to fabricate all the 'stationary' for my wedding (invites, response cards, programs, etc) from scratch...

the crazy thing, is that i think you capured something different, and perfect, with each picture.... like two different dimensions of the same character. my mashup won't be stellar, but i think it is shaping up fairly well, so far. i'll post it in here, later today, if you don't mind....
or in dee's mashup thread (not sure if my ackward fumblings really count as a colab :-/)

I love the special effects you added! I'm not sure if that's a contrail behind her, but I love the aura and THOSE EYES!!! Any Naughty Spawn of Minion level (and probably a few Lieutenants) would be crying for their mothers when they looked into THOSE EYES!

*whistles at the stuff she didn't notice before, then purrs excitedly*

Like Miss DeeDee said, I have served as the practice model for lots of artists, and praticing a lot helps to develop better technical skill! As such, I am only TOO happy to continue being the Unofficial Official Spokesmodel for the Artz Forums!

Word on the street is that Bobby exceeded his awesomeness quotient for the week and won't be allowed to post until the level of awesome in the forums returns to safe levels...

....but he wanted me to post this, because it freaking rocks. (which he drew, because he also freaking rocks)

Feel free to Simplify the coat, if it's a problem. And the 'double cape-system' of coat and veil are one of the challenges with this character.

That said... Oh Wow! I already love this face! *grin*

Ah! I see, tighten the focus to the torso and you won't have to deal with the oriental embroidery or the drape and flow of the whole coat. Nice work!

Be Well!

Bobby's a bit of a pro, after all.

And I know you have some pretty cool 3D stuff, lurking on your drive... perhaps you should create a generic 'post your character art' thread and seed it with a few shots? Or head over to the CoT DeviantArt page and submit it there?

You're on a roll Bobby! Aren't you glad I took Perry?

Culach, first... welcome to the forums! You're free (like any artist or even those who need practise subjects to become an artist) to use refs from the Art Request Thread . Just because one ref got used before, doesn't mean it can't be used again afterall
