Sunday Sketch 20 – 25 Essential Expressions: Tinuvielle

25 essential expressions challenge - tinuvielle

My 2nd attempt at the 25 Essential Expressions Challenge this time with Tinuvielle. I did Amuletts before and I think I will do Clodin next. It is a good exercise and I think you all know how much I enjoy drawing expressions and putting personality into them. They really make the characters come to life in my opinion. I think this one turned out a lot better than the previous Expressions Challenge. I guess I’m improving.

As always your constructive criticism would be much appreciated.

Sunday Sketch #18 – Fugly

This is Fugly. I don’t think he was every officially christened, but everybody called him that so he assumed it was his name!

I’ve played Fugly in a few D&D games and he came number 3 in my ‘Favorite 5 Player Characters list.’ He is a classic example of Low Comliness i.e. he is physically unattractive – not to be confused with a low charisma character like Crunt. Fugly actually has a sweet nature that endeers him to people if only they will look past his appearance and get to know him (unfortunately few do).

He is a half-orc and his ugliness is a result of birth deformities which meant he was picked on by both Orcs and Humans and beaten regularly as a result. This left him with scars, a broken nose, cheekbone etc. that made him look even uglier. Unfortunately people can be cruel and judge by appearance. He also has low intellegence but I think that comes from being beaten round the head a little too often. Sad, eh?

Yeah I’m kinda mean to my characters…

Sunday Sketch #17 – Crunt

This is Crunt (derived from Crotchety Runt and only coincidentally sounds like a rude word).
He’s like Grumpy (from the Seven Dwarves) but without the charm. This is the dwarf that other dwarves find too offensive to be around. Crunt is not evil (Lawful Good actually), he’s just unpleasant, rude and smelly (he’s afraid of water). It often annoys me in computer RPGs how you are not allowed to role-play a rude character without it being considered evil. Someone can be ill-mannered yet still carry a good heart.

Crunt is the epitome of low Charisma. Now many, many people get low charisma confused with low Comliness – but comliness is how physically attractive/unattractive you are whereas Charisma is about how attractive your personality is. Look out for an example of low Comliness next week when I’ll be doing the concept art for Crunt’s sidekick Fugly.

My Little Pony – Failure is Epic!

My Little Pony, Epic Fail in the style of Friendship is Magic, FiM
At the beginning of My Little Pony ‘Friendship is Magic‘ you always see a picture of all the characters which Twilight Sparkles has presumably sent to Princess Celestia. So I decided to make my own in the same style using the characters from Epic Fail.

I’ve posted all the characters individually so you can go back and look at them in more detail if you haven’t already and see what their Cutie Marks are.

Sunday Sketch #15 – My Little Pony Yoru

This Sunday sketch is of Yoru, the half-demon boy, as a My Little Pony. With it I complete the task of drawing all Epic Fail’s characters as Ponys. I drew him as a Pegasus because he’s different from all the other characters, and I hadn’t done one yet! He doesn’t have a Cutie Mark yet because he is too young and has not yet discovered his destiny.

Look out for Mondays update where I’ll post a picture of all the Ponyized characters together.
