Salazar Orta by Darbaras Salazar Orta by Darbaras
I always wanted to make a Victorian-era themed picture, but the idea always got tossed aside for specific reasons. Reasons like not knowing how to draw. :dummy:

As for this character, there's not much of a backstory other than he is a Brazilian born doctor who served as a surgeon during the Paraguayan war, then migrated to England.
I'd imagine him as some sort of secondary antagonist, maybe the right hand of an arch villain. You know, the guy who tortures the main hero for the whereabouts of the damsel ... or something. :shrug:

The shading was much softer at first, but it looked quite off with the thick, cartoony outlines, so I simplified them, giving the whole thing a more cel-shaded look.


I'm afraid I added too many filters this time ...

I hope you'll enjoy it! C:

Maned wolves - even though he doesn't really look like one - have really slim bodies and long legs. Example
Also, I tend to stretch my characters a bit.  ^^

Thank you! :3 Those are my favourite parts, too! Unfortunately, the rest of his design doesn't really add up.

Is he a maned wolf? :D

Absolutely fantastic work on the lineart! Plus, I love the colour scheme and the textures you used! :heart:
I'd actually love to hear a longer backstory if he had one. :D Honestly, I think his design fits the role of a villain perfectly!

Yep, he is! Even though there are a few missing "key features" :D

Thank you so much! This style is a bit new, yet to be polished, but it's great to know you like it! Oh, I think his suit's colours are all over the place for the era and a bad guy. I might change them later. ^^
I really wish I could write something featuring him, but my storytelling abilities are below average. I usually make up short scenes rather than a whole plot ... ^^;

Still, I'd love to see some comic strips or just doodles featuring that guy! :D He's amazing!
