my first dojinshi fanart work
« on: April 20, 2008, 10:52:21 pm »
 :lee:  first submittion by me! it is a "modern day" serge with an older Draggy on his back. Plain yes, but yeah, draggy looks hardcore lol. as i should remeber the picture took 25 minutes to draw.   what do you guys think? was making a modern day serge and evolved draggy a bit to much. did it completely take away from serge's original charater. tell me what you like and dislike (other than it being a sketched peice of work; i dont have a tablet or photoediting software yet sorry.) :D

Nothing wrong with reshaping or re-interpreting a character. I'm only an observer (i.e., can't draw), but consider myself a connoisseur of fanarts. As such it impresses me, especially the glossiness of Serge's eyes.

Any significance to that necklace-thingy he's wearing? Or did Serge wear that in-game?

It pretty good, although serge looks a little too lightweight, and lean.

Judging from Chronomage's sig art, looks like the lankiness is consistent across characters, so it may just be the style itself. Though I guess Kid and Harle were very thin anyway. Man, would these characters be banned on French runways?

The signature isn't Chronomage's artwork.

Okay, part of me feels like a doofus, but the other part is celebrating the fact that my misunderstanding has led me to look up this art site:
http://inkplus.syste.ms/Documents/Gallerypage.html

If there is ever to be another official Chrono game, I vote Charles Park for illustrator - possibly running Akira Toriyama character designs through his own uber stylishness, turning Goku and Bulma clones into pure awesomeness.

Serge and Draggy are adorable honestly.

As for Chris, he is a very talented artist. I wouldn't mind seeing characters done by him.

Fair enough. I don't think anyones mad though. Just please re-size it; it's too large for this forum.

Yeah dude, it's cool.  You never SAID or even implied that you made the sig.

I think I was the only one who thought the sig belonged to you, Chronomage. My bad, not yours.
