ER: Spineless by Turtle-Arts ER: Spineless by Turtle-Arts
So, I've been working on a lot of Maya homework lately which involves a lot of really geometric, rigid polygon structuring, and I've been dying to draw something more fluid. So I picked the most structureless, free flowing character in my file- Cyrus the gengar! Hooray! No Mouse unfortunately, but I like drawing Cyrus anyways because he's eeeeeasy. :thumbsup: Cyrus doesn't really have a shape- he's just an amorphous, semi-solid floating entity whose body is in constant flux. He can will himself into more structured forms, or he can simplify himself down to just a floating ball if he wants. The only constant feature is his face. Which, it also occurred to me while I was drawing these that Cyrus' face can actually move around freely on his body. Like, he can be facing one way and move his face to the back of his head without actually turning his body. Or he could flip his face upside down on his head if he wanted (which I've actually drawn before. XD)

So for these I just did some sketches of the different kinds of shapes Cyrus can take. And I did the bottom left one to show about the closest he ever gets to looking like an "actual" gengar (like the in-game design). And then the top right three were just because I felt like drawing a cute Cyrus. :>

I like fluid he is.
Kinda reminds me of this guy's Gengar: arvalis.deviantart.com/art/Gen… in that it is the exact opposite

What is the story betwen Cyrus and Mouse? I saw Your little comics and I'm curious, if there is more of it. Mouse went crazy because of this pomekon or what?

Oh, lol, yeah it's kind of a long story. But basically yes, Cyrus causes Mouse to go crazy over time. I took the inspiration from the dex entries for the gengar line, which talk about how they are capable of eating a person's soul via dreameater attacks. And that being touched by one causes constant fear/paranoia until a person dies. Also, that they're considered a death omen as they are known to hunt humans. Mouse was my End Run OCT character, but I dropped out of the official running earlier in the competition. But the character seems to be my most popular OC, so I decided to go ahead and round off his story for the people who've been keeping up with him. :nod:

Oh, thanks for explanation :) I never knew that gengars are such scary pkms O__o Hunt humans? Wow.

But on the other hand, why not? Pokemon Universe is strange... I was always curious, for example, if people are eating pidgeys or do some wartotles soup xD

Yeah they're creepy little buggers. Especially haunters. >_>; That's why even though Cyrus is a gengar, he still resembles a haunter, because I think they're creepier. XD

Yeah I like to think pokemon work just like regular animals. Some are dangerous, some are docile. Some get eaten by people, some eat people. XD

i also think that haunter is more creepy than gengar :)

Yeah I actually don't like gengar either. XD There's a couple pokemon on this character's team that I don't like, but I picked them because they suited the character. And then I tried to redesign them so that I actually liked them and so that they would be fun to draw. XD

You should try some sculpting in sculptris. Much less rigid. Also, what about organic modeling?

I'd like to pick up Zbrush since it's more industry standard. I've use sculptris a little though. :nod:

I like that Cyrus has that free flowing body. I never understood why Gengar was "meaty". I wish the ghost pokemon acted more like ghosts and could move and distort themselves :P Awesome work!

Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, Gengar always looked too solid to me... and fat. XD But all the ghost pokemon aren't really that "ghostly" looking. I think Haunter still fits the idea of a ghost best.

I swear, I absolutely love the way you draw Gengar. It's so unique and I can easily recognize when you're the artist who's drawn him in my message box. ^^ Even in his more "solid" form in the upper right corner, he's still just the most adorable thing I've ever seen! <3
