Ophidius Character Sheet done  
Yeay, I finished this at last. This was fun and easy. I like making these because they look so professional. Also they look like something you'd find in an Eyewitness book.

Click for full size.
Now if anyone wants to draw him they know how. I left the main ones on the line up unshaded so you can see how his colors are supposed to go. I love his present day modern knives! I had to color and shade in the one because I've never drawn those before. Lovely. I totally see why he likes those so much. And yes his 1300's outfit is meant to be hideous. I need to make up a suit for 1700's. The style for men in that time period was very distinct. But if I do make one I don't know how I'll add it in. I'm sure he'd love one of those white wigs with a pony tail.

So I've started on the background for the budgie coatl. Once again I'm venturing into new territory. I'm not sure what I'm doing. I have made three types of bamboo trunks that I can rotate. So technically 6. I have some bamboo leaves and I made one palm frond. That's probably not enough to fill in a jungle background. I've been pasting in the line work. I really don't know what I'm doing. I want no sky, and the trees and plants going off to the right to a horizon point. Like it's a hall way in the jungle that my coatl is landing on. So the trees on the right in the foreground of the background (yeah I know) will be smaller and get bigger on the left. How I will do all this I have no idea. I probably shouldn't even be starting. I need more plants. Sigh.

Current Mood: Confused

This looks great! And yes it does remind me of an Eyewitness book.

Thanks. I have some of those eyewitness books and love them. I have them in Spanish and English as well as some VHS.

Welcome back. Good to see you again. Can't wait to hear about your trip. Been thinking about you.

I love Ophidius. Though I would not like him in real life! His 1300s-1700s outfit is hideous, and his 1800s one not much better! Lol :) You did a really good job with the knives, too. *Shudder*
Des: Laughingthagirion on April 24th, 2013 11:43 am (UTC)
Thanks. I do too. I think he'd be a blast in real life so long as he didn't go all crazy on you. Too bad he can't be trusted. Haha, yeah it's pretty bad. The 1800s one wouldn't be so bad if he'd picked matching colors. Thanks. I think his blue knives are very pretty.

I am so happy that you finally got this done!! Of course, he is one of my fav' characters from the realm. He is so fun to brainstorm for.

hehe, His 13-1600 suit is awful.

The character sheet is beautiful. Good job!

I'm glad you think so. This was fun and pretty easy to make. Turned out better than my previous character sheets.

Great job! It looks very professional.

I also like how smug he looks posing with his wings out.

Thanks. Hehe, yeah he's so proud of him self there. A nod to what his true glory is as a feathered serpent.

I also wanted to comment that you did an excellent job with the facial expressions. I sensed his pride right away. And his eyes in all the pictures make me a little nervous. It's like he's staring directly at me. :)
Des: Ophidius Pleasedthagirion on April 24th, 2013 09:27 pm (UTC)
Aw thank you. I'm glad you liked all those expressions. Well he's not looking directly at you in this one and he's happy here. But yeah, his normal gaze which would be expressionless is still freaky especially if he looks your way. He could be thinking about nice things but you wouldn't know it.

Yes, I think it's the not being able to tell that's so freaky. :)
