Transmute by Darbaras Transmute by Darbaras
"You think I am wealthy? Being an enchanter in the lands of Skyrim is expensive. Do you realize how much a single soul of a Winged Twilight costs?"

Well, I decided to draw my so very original [Sarcasm] character, Giann-Naatraza once again, in a very cartoony and simple way, just to reflect his silly and lazy character design. ^^

Since I switched to animation school, - long story - I actually started drawing characters on paper again, as I never felt skilled enough to rely on my drawing skills before.
Back then, I made only rough sketches, and drew the rest of the lineart on PC with a mouse, which took much more time than necessary. (Days instead of hours)

Now, All I have to do is draw the character, scan it, and colour on PC. (Like normal people)

So, here you go: this is how I actually draw on paper. ^^

Hope you'll like it! :)

- 2012.12.15 - UPDATE:

Changed the background colours for better contrast.

Giann-Naatraza @ to me

I don't normally like this style of art, but it works really well here. I especially love the way you've drawn the spell.

I really appreciate that! Actually, I find it surprising that this many people liked the picture and his simple design. It's very encouraging. ^^

Something like that. ^^ I wonder, what his villain song would be like? :D

Either that would be 'In the Hall of the Mountain King', or 'Carol of the Bells' (the re worked version) by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. If you're not into the Christmas spirit (as it is summer where I'm at), It makes for a good song for when the villian gains the upper hand.

Remélhetőleg ... :D Mondjuk fázisrajzolásból eddig csak ilyen alapokat vettünk, mint a hasábforgatások, ostormozgás vagy labdapattogás, de majd szeretnék egy ilyen kis rövid flash animációt csinálni Skyrimos karakterekkel. Egy kis gyakorlás soha sem árt. ^^

Never felt skilled? This is pretty bad ass. Love this overall design and the cartoony looks added to him. Hell, ya drew him with a mouse and that takes skill and time to do. You should feel pretty much awesome for pulling this off ^^

Darbaras Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012  Student Filmographer
Yeah, because when you are drawing IRL with a pencil, you don't have the undo button or layers to work with. ^^
Thank you very much! I wanted to keep the picture as simple and clean as possible, focusing on the lineart and overall design. As for using a mouse, it isn't a big deal when you are using vector graphics. While it is indeed time consuming, I wouldn't say it requires skill, just patience. Photoshop, on the other hand is whole different story, though it's still not impossible.

I do feel great, because people still like this picture despite having no small details or shading, which means people like my actual drawing style on it's own.

At times like these, I need to learn how to do that, even though I have a tablet and Photoshop CS5...Ah well, might as well learn on my own right?

I don't really like these 'badass mofo' characters though. That's why I drew him with such a goofy style.

Giann is villainous, insincere enchanter, seeking a way to create magical items only a deity could make ... Basically. ^^ For his experiments, he needs powerful souls and money to cover his expenses.

I don't know, he looks like a typical 'badass' wannabe, with nothing subtle about him. ^^ That's why I no longer treat him as a serious character.

For me he looks nice, even I have a weird definition of nice. xD
