Storm Knight by EMP-83 Storm Knight by EMP-83
You know the basic stuff that starts as a sketch, and that end in a full picture ? The same character than here : [link]

I'm not happy with anything here, but the head. I'm so fucking bad to draw fantasy armors, here's something I'll have to work on oO I keep the concept of the Dragonborn Knight fighting with a standard :) I think I've already seen that in some iteration of Soulcalibur, but I'm not sure about it...

The character comes from the Mournland, in Eberron. It's a sick place, destroyed years ago by some magical cataclysm ; now it's just a wasteland, full of undeads, the air filled by a poisonous atmosphere. The pattern on the standard comes from the Forgotten Realms, so it's some kind of dimensional mashup, or I don't know what... :p

Tu n'es pas mauvais au niveau des design d'armures fantasy actuelle, détrompe toi. Comme c'est un personnage féminin, tu as fais une armure jolie et qui met son corps plus ou moins en avant, n'étant certes pas du tout pratique quand on combat un ennemi... mais ce n'est pas ce qui est demandé actuellement à ce type d'armures.
C'est un joli travail, et ton décors léger en monochrome derrière est un bon ajout :rose:.

Aha la règle du "chainmail bikini" ? Moins y a de metal, plus ca protège.. J'essaye de pas tomber dans ce cliché en général, c'est pour ca que je teste différents designs d'armure en ce moment :) J'ai toujours quelques soucis avec certaines pieces, comme les jambieres :p

Oui, j'ai toujours travaillé en opposition avec cette règle, mais tous le monde s'accorde dessus ou presque :p.
C'est bien, j'ai vu sur ta dernière version qu'elle était plus armorée, continue ainsi.

Yup, je le sens bien la ;) Encore quelques croquis sur carnet et j'aurais un design sympa je pense :)

The choice of colors here really interested me; as I am a sucker for having blue and its shades being the primary focus of the whole.

You mean the mix of blue with dirty yellow ? :)

Ah; see I didn't realize the yellow there; I'm just fascinated by the blue lol

That's the interesting point of working with these colors :D You just retain the blue, whereas there is also green and yellow ;)

Armour is extremely tough to draw but I think it works, I love how the sparks gather about her head spikes like static electricity, it's a nice idea to explore, what are the parts you don't like?

The upper body parts, but I think I found something else. I'm actually sketching :)

There's this one here [link] that is pretty dirty, but I think of numerous cool action poses and scenery XD Want to make something huge with this character, I fell pretty fond of her.

It looks fine to me :D not dirty at all! I think action poses are always fun (in your head lol) but they're more difficult to draw, but really she is well designed and I think would look good in action poses!

Action poses are what I prefer to draw personally :D But it takes always twice longer to adjust :)

If you ask me I really think you have done a great work. I also really like the background idea. in the dragoness her self, I really like her pose and her armor you draw there. I also love the detail in it.

~ great art and I know your pain for a dragon armor

Hilde fights with a standard and arming sword in SC IV, as for the armour, it looks fine. Fantasy Rule number one: the less a female's armour covers, the better protected she is. Also, she looks more like a half-dragon than a dragonborn. I still like it though.

:iconemp-83:
EMP-83 Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah, it's that character :) It'd be interesting to study her design maybe. I'll see it later.

Yup Dragonborns are more bulky, and have a more heavy head, but I didn't want to go into that. Pure vagary :D
