VolSa: Back to your roots by Turtle-Arts VolSa: Back to your roots by Turtle-Arts
So I was tired of drawing school whatnot and decided to draw Roland instead because it's been a while since I've drawn him. But I decided it would be fun to draw Roland back in his original outfit design (though it's been slightly updated... since I draw better now. :I). I still like this outfit, and I know people always seemed to respond really positively to Roland's "wing coat." I changed his outfit a while back mostly because I was tired of this one. And I enjoy drawing my characters in various outfits. And besides, there's no rule that says a character can't have more than one outfit. XD But yeah, I just thought it would be fun to revisit Roland's older look and give it a bit of an update. Enjoy! ^^

P.S. Fun fact time! Did you know that originally my VolSa character was going to be a super tough, female chimera? I didn't switch to a male pegasus until the chimera girl was nearing her final design. And I can't actually remember what spurred me to make such a drastic change. XD

Huh. For some reason I always thought this guy was a griffon :XD: Then I went to go read his profile and discovered it's in storage...;_;

Anyway, the wings are gorgeous (as is the rest of him X3) and I really do love the idea for that 'wing coat' :D

Ah yeah, I was thinking of using this pic to update his profile with because the old one was dated and I didn't want people getting the wrong info so I just took it down. ^^; But yeah, he's actually a pegasus who's trying to make himself look more like a griffon. XD

I see....so it wasn't completely unfounded of me to mistake him for a griffon after all, then :XD:

It really is quite a charming outfit. <3 I always love seeing this guy. Seeing Roland always reminds me of the major updates on Tsunally that I need to make. She's so neglected. orz

You know, that reminds me, I don't think I've ever asked you if you would like to RP or not. Would you like to by any chance? Like in notes maybe?

I remember you saying once that you ought to draw him with his back to us, since the back of his wings look cooler, but I dunno if you've done that yet or not...but could you post your chimera sometime, since she was mostly designed anyway? Be fun to see what you came up with.

Nice ! first time I see the idea of a wing coat (doesn't it bother him to fly ? or is it just like pants to run ?), and I must admit I quite like it !
Reply
:iconturtle-arts:
Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, it's been a while since I've drawn it. And he actually doesn't fly while wearing the coat. This character actually prefers walking most of the time, and if he is planning on flying, he wouldn't wear something like this. This is more of a "street casual" look for him for when he's not planning on traveling long distances.

Dr-Aim Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012  Student General Artist
ooh I see. nice then ! too bad he's more of a walker. I mean, such huge wings would quickly be a bother, no ? heavy and huuuge. but then again must have gotten used to it.
Reply
:iconturtle-arts:
Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Well he does fly a lot, but mostly just to keep his wings in shape. He really only prefers flying when he needs to travel a long distance. He walks because he likes being down on the street where all the people are. It's too quiet up in the air for him, and he's a people person. XD

Dr-Aim Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012  Student General Artist
oooh I see. well yeah when I think about it flying can get quite lonely, it's not easy to communicate with the wind and all (they'd need an asl ahahaha) but yeah that makes sense !
Reply
:iconturtle-arts:
Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yup. Plus, he's a pegasus which means he's also part horse, so he likes running as well. And I think Roland's a little more horse personality than bird. XD

ahaha I didn't see the horse part at all, but yeah double sense made !
(never understood why wild horses love running so much, but well)

Oh no, he doesn't look much like a horse (which I actually did on purpose) but he acts more like one. ^^;
