Big Swan - Of Pots and Pans by JemiDove Big Swan - Of Pots and Pans by JemiDove
I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER DIGITALLY DRAWN MY MAIN 4 CHARACTERS TOGETHER IN AN ENVIRONMENT LIKE THIS!! :squee: :faint: You could count the digital comic I did in 2012 but man that is so old jemidove.deviantart.com/art/Bi… *sheds single tear of joy*

Originally sketched on a whim while being hyped for the upcoming co-op rogue-like dungeon crawler, Necropolis. This isn't actually a scene from my "Big Swan" story, this is just a "what-if" scenario of the gang in a medieval setting :XD: Their clothes/roles are based on what I drew of them back in 2011 (jemidove.deviantart.com/art/BS… ) , when I was super inspired by Sonic and the Black Knight. Peatail's an arrogant knight, Scarlett's a mage (because she likes tinkering with technology/gadgets), Owlia's an assassin (the espionage pro), and Berura's a raging peasant who demands she gets her tax back by making threats with ... household objects :rofl:

I do intend to include a castle somewhere in the universe, though the gang wouldn't have any reason to wear such clothes (unless they're under disguise, guhu). I still remember those old entries of a Big Swan art contest I held years ago, you guys came up with such inspiring environment ideas QvQ *holds all the contest entries dearly to heart*

Struggled a lot with the lighting/colouring, gwargh. Overall I'm satisfied with the outcome, despite leaving out some things I wanted to add in due to my inexperience (like a 2nd light source coming from where the characters are facing, so that the villain, Flapwing the Flamingo's shadow is cast on the floor).

Comments would be greatly appreciated TvT

The whole composition seems very dynamic and fluid, and features some very strong character poses. The image alone tells a story.
The light sourcing is great too, you've even managed to achieve a kind of freznel effect around the characters caught in the sunlight.
You gave the background as much attention as the characters, it's well rendered and integrates well with the rest of the image elements.
This is really well done overall! 12 out of 10 :D

Berura seems justifiably enraged, her plight resonates with me. I hope she gets her tax back with that, erm... vase Llama Emoji-01 (Laughing) [V1]

Ah, it's alright, I figured a lot of people on the other side of the world would be in school or at work when I started streaming anyway. XD But I appreciate it whenever you do drop by - the stream instantly gets livelier thanks to you 8D
