SH: Boys will be boys by Turtle-Arts SH: Boys will be boys by Turtle-Arts
So many sketches lately! Because that's all I've really had time for. Hooray for finals. ^^; This time it's just a few Sky Herder sketches since I don't share too many of these with you guys. Did these earlier because I hadn't done many sketches of just Toch and Mier interacting. These two aren't related, but they do have a sibling-esque relationship. Essentially they're like the equivalent of across-the-street neighbors: not quite the same age group, but they grew up together so they're good friends. Toch is 16 (almost 17) and Mier is 14. And normally they're not the kind of personalities that might work well together, but because they've known each other so long they're just super used to each other.

Basically Mier is super energetic and rather self-centered, but generally a nice person. Kind of an attention ho' though. XD He loves being in charge of things and is very creative and optimistic. Toch is more quiet and submissive (he's definitely a follower). Naturally he's more of a pessimist, but he's usually willing to go along with Mier's ideas and schemes, even if he doesn't think they'll work. He has a hard time keeping himself interested in things, so having Mier's energetic, fast-paced personality around is a good boredom-deterrent for him. Though on the rare chance that he does get invested in something, he's very dedicated to it.

So yeah, development sketches. Enjoy them! :3 And on a side note, I think I've finally about got Mier's face to a level of detail that I'm happy with. At least for now. XD

Thanks. :3 And yeah I'll be drawing things more stuff like this for each of the kids together, but I don't know how much I'll be posting. After all, if I post it all here, there wouldn't be anything left for the book. XD

I think this is the first time I've ever seen Toch actually looking happy and angry instead of looking all serious and tired all the time XD
...
I like it XD

Yeah "serious/tired" is Toch's neutral expression, but he does show other emotions. XD

Is he one of those characters that doesn't show a lot of emotion, but when he does, it's extremely expressive? XD
Reply
:iconturtle-arts:
Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Eh, not exactly. He does get super expressive at times, but only for really negative emotions. Like, he never really gets super excited or overly happy or the like. But when he gets mad, he gets mad, you know? :/

So only really expressive for one spectrum. That makes it more interesting XD

Yeah pretty much. XD Mier's kind of all over the place as far as emotion goes, so Toch's there to balance him out a bit.

Sky Herder's actually written as a film. T.V. series are good, but I kind of like simple stories that can be told in a couple hours rather than several seasons. ^^;

Yes he can. XD I think everyone thinks Toch is never happy, but he's really not like that all the time... just most of the time. lol!

Heeeeey, there you are. XD You still want me to give you a critique?

And lol, Toch already gets more ladies than Mier. XD

Only if you want to. If you could help me to know what I could do to improve that would be great. Do you just want to choose a picture to look at yourself or should I send you a link?

As for Toch, I should have know. It's that lazy 'I don't give a darn' look isn't it.

Well, I guess if there's ny specific pictures you want feedback on, link those to me. Or would you rather I just took a general look and picked some myself?

Could you take a general look and pick some you think have potential or are good? I'd say look at the stuff in the 'Blood Hunters Moon' part of the gallery, but there are not many pictures in there and most of them are sketches.
