Thorne - Character Gift Art by k-hallowseve Thorne - Character Gift Art by k-hallowseve
Well, this isn't the pic I mentioned in my journal--instead it was a semi-spontaneous inspiration from that RP. You know the one. *points to Tatiana*

This is Thorne Urien (sp?), ~Imenak's character from the Elemental Academy. He didn't have a character pic, and since this lil' fella was so cool, I figured I'd try my hand at it and see if I could make a halfway presentable drawing. Of course, it was after I'd finished it that I learned someone else had already made him one. :XD: Curses. Should have checked the forums last night, eh? Well, I'm posting him anyway, for the sake of my pride if nothing else.

Enough rambling... This is Thorne, he's 13, and wields a scythe. Of DOOM (I'm gonna sing the Doom Song, now!). :P *cough* Yeah. He's an unpredictable character, and loves to instigate arguments and such. He's a decent size for his age...5'6" I believe. Yes, Tatiana's at least 6" shorter. He lacks some social grace, and can be abrasive (intentionally or not), but he and Tatiana are on pretty good terms thus far. He seems to have a respect for people who maintain civility with him (cookie incidents aside ;P).

Er... some technical things: I wasn't 100% positive what an aviator jacket looked like, so I modeled his coat after one of my own. Hope it's close. I gave him a Grim Reaper-style scythe instead of Ani's farm-implement-of-slaying, but apparently Reaper was the correct style, so I feel better about that. And I know you said he had Axel-ish hair, so I tried to do that in my own form, with more wisp and less spike. But I dunno, maybe it's supposed to be spikey/piecy? You did say on his CS that his hairs very unruly, and I tried to give him that without giving him a Tim Burton tangle on top of his head. :P Lastly, he looks a little too old. I made his head larger in proportion to his body, and that helped, but he still looks older in the face. >.< Eh. I also couldn't quite get his 'look-at-me-I'm-a-total-badass' facial expression quite right. Alas.

Thank you for your kind comment! Looking trough your work I have to say I really love ideas in your drawings, like this char here! Maybe you will put it in colour some day? :)

Thank you. :) I'm not sure if I'll color them, mainly because I fail at coloring. :XD: Maybe, if I ever get Photoshop and pick up some decent coloring technique.

He's just a tad unhinged. I'd say ~Imenak definitely made an interesting one with this kid. :P

Great scythe, great anatomy and I love how well you do the wrinkles for the clothes. Simply wonderful!

You are a pure genious :)

No words can express the awesomeness in this! ^_^ The hair's a little shorter than I pictured it as, but I still like it. It could be him after a haircut! The jacket is pretty close too. This is sort of what I had in mind for it, though with the brown color being much darker than that. If I ever get the chance, I'll take a picture of my friend's jacket. xD Both yours and Ro's picture fit really well with Thorne's description, only really differing in art style (and hairdo). Ro has the anime style and yours has a more realistic feel to it ^^. Oh, and I like how you managed that arrogant expression! Me likey, and me approve. Thanks for this! You rock my socks off xD.

Hmm, I should've used one of the other bomber jackets as a reference, I think--there's like four of them around here and none of them look the same. :XD: Yeah, if there was one part I really got frustrated with, it was his hair. I wasn't sure how realistic I wanted to go with it--but I didn't want to do the spiky-shounen anime thing. It was hard to keep it real-looking, I swear. But yeah, after checking out Ro's sketches, I think I should've given him 4 more inches or so. :P I was worried about his expression (especially that he might look too old), but if it works, then awesome.

Thanks for the fav, by the wayside. :D
