TCC: Gin Shots by Turtle-Arts TCC: Gin Shots by Turtle-Arts
Lol, I'm making a joke about Gin's name. Get it? Get it? Okay I'll go sit in the corner now. >_<

Late night drawing and whatnot. I would be in bed, but that would be silly because everyone else here is awake, so why should I go to bed? XD No, I'm going to bed here in a minute... because it's late and I'm rambling.

But yes, these are sketches of my OC Gin that I did just as some character exploration and whatnot. Trying to figure out some different aspects of his design and how his clothing and hair work, etc. Gin is actually a bit difficult to draw sometimes, despite how simple his design looks (so much fabric). >_< So I also did these just as practice for him. Also, the cat isn't Gin's pet or anything. The Clover Club is full of free roaming cats, so I thought I'd draw one here just for fun. (Plus Gin likes cats) Also, I'm still toying with how much I want Gin to be able to turn into his actual Shishi form. I've decided at this point that he can at least a tiny bit (hence the upper left pic), but I'm still not sure if I actually want to give him the ability to change into a full blown Shishi. I guess it's mostly because unlike everyone else I've seen with a Shishi character in CC, Gin is possessing a human body- it's not actually his. So I'm thinking that turning into a giant lion monster would kind of destroy the body he's using, which wouldn't exactly be good for him, you know? :/ So for the time being, he can only change as far as things that don't really damage his body much. So mostly some changes in the face, hands, feet, etc- things that can be easily reversed or repaired.
Not much to it other than that. Oh, except I also did a drawing here to show you guys what Gin's clothes look like without the cloak. Also some sketches to show what his face actually looks like without the hair in his eyes. Gin doesn't have the hair in his eyes because he's trying to hide his face or anything, that's just how his hair is. So it's not uncommon for him to push his hair out of the way for a bit to get a better look at things. :thumbsup:

You asian themed designs are a really neat and colorful twist on your characters. It adds a whole new culture to them which I just love seeing! I hope I can get my own characters to have such a distinctive theme.
Thanks for posting its fun seeing your drawings.

Quick question, are the boots just boots, or does he have paws underneath? Also, is that a dead bird in the bottom?

Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
They're just boots, but they have a pawprint pattern on the sole. He has regular human feet, but the boots actually wear like a heel, which is how they get the weird shape. :>

Oh yeah I love that they did that in HTTYD. :nod: I've like kind of boot shape ever since playing Megaman as a kid though. Gotta love the big chuncky lower leg shape. It makes for a great silhouette. ^^

Advice for character designs? Gosh, well that's kind of something you have to discover for yourself. Like, you've gotta figure out how you personally think about characters. For me, designing a character is like... like writing a story. I always try to make my characters look like they have a story behind them, you know? But when it comes to physical appearances I try to focus more on general shapes than fine details. Like, how the overall shape of a character reads, and how easily it can be broken down into simple shapes. Also, when you're doing colors, it's generally good not to go over three main colors for their pallet. You can have details in other colors, but if you do large amounts of different colors, you'd better be doing it really good or it's probably going to look like a mess. XD

dvbjkdfsbvdjfbvjfdkjsvbdjfkvbkdjfbvkjdfvdb He's so cute ohmygoodness Q7Q <3333

Your art style is super fun and cute [ cause really, if there was a cartoon done in your style and had a good storyline i'd watch the hell out of it, even if the storyline was crappy] but at the same time is supersupersuper gorgeous and pretty [such as the doodle in the bottom left hand corner and the headshot at the very top] All these doodles have alot of flow to them, even the ones where he's just standing still Q7Q

Butjust.... Ffffffffffff~~~ He's just way too cute for his own good and the idea that he doesn't go into a full Shishi form due to possessing a host is a super cool idea and I like it alot~ [plus the doodle of that you drew is really cool looking~~~]]

*accidentally made this comment huge oops* Anyway! I really hope we can rp sometime~ Gin seems like a great character~! [plus i cracked up at the title of this deviation uvu;;;]
