What sorts of shenanigans have I been getting into? That.
New tank armor means new Hikaru drawing and boy was this a doozy. FFXIV has some beautiful gear, especially for tanks, but ow they are often a huge pain to draw. I will never rag on WoW over having ridiculously ornate gear again, lol.
I originally intended to do this in Painter to try out the 2017 version but my monitor’s color settings, while fine for everything else, isn’t too conducive to painting. Thus I threw back to my iPad and finished in Procreate. The video thus begins after the line art stage:
I’m not giving up on Painter though. Going to look into getting Duet Display so I can pretend to be a Cintiq.
So, uh… yeah. That kinda happened! Hello 2015, when did YOU happen?
Needless to say, I’ve been playing lots and lots of WoW, WAY more than since my last post. As of this writing, I have 4 lvl 100 characters: Yoshi, Phil, Kopii Yoshi and, as of a couple days ago, Hynderia.
Hynderia is a character from my ginormous OC pile I don’t bring out very often. Well, for one thing, she didn’t really exist before I started playing WoW. I came up with her as a replacement for Hikaru, my primary OC who normally takes on the melee DPS/tank role in MMOs (in addition to, you know, being the main character of the original stories she’s in)– however, because of the lore in WoW and gameplay limitations, it would have been impossible to roll Hikaru and retain her race and special abilities in any satisfactory capacity. WoW DOES have Black Dragons, and while they are (like just about every other fictional depiction) depicted as being evil, I could have worked around that. But there would have been no way to retain Hikaru’s hyper-regeneration, there is no such player-usable effect on a melee DPS character.
This had been dangling at the ink phase for over a month. One sleeve of Oreo double stuf and a mug of milk later and I’m burning through Painter like I’ve got a freaking power star.
Hikaru and Deeum are about to lay waste to a Dragon’s Nest. No humans allowed! That means you, Chelsea. :(
Now I go and spend the rest of this Oreo high in Diablo 3 before Robert goes to work. :9
