Zen by fydbac Zen by fydbac
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:
Character: Zen
Rank: Pirate god of pirate gods
World: kakoil
Medium: blue pencil | pencil | photoshop cs

Drawn in late Dec. 2007. Colored now. Same world as Tokeil, and same project: My thesis.

The angle is boring to me. I was in a mental slump (Started it during my break while working at NYC BookOff), and creating her really bought my spirits up. I do like the pose though, and still adore the design.

What's funny, is that Tokeil was the first one I did (I think) yet all the ones that followed, were boring angles. Que sera...sera....

EDIT 03/12/09: Forgot the color in her lips and added some solidity with the scarf.

This looks like Elazul from Legend of Mana.  Was that your inspiration?

I don't know what either of those are. This design is almost 5 years old; even so, If a character of mine is ever inspired so heavily by another to look like them, I would let it be known out of respect, and to show the design isn't 100% mine. But I abhor such practices concerning concepts, especially in my own.

I would never copy another design. And absolutely hate it if I later see that it looks like someone elses design, that came before mine.

Legend of Mana is a video game from 1999.  Elazul is my favorite character, I just thought you might be a fan as well.  I wasn't trying to insult you or imply anything.  :(

Oh, I knew the name sounded familiar. 

It's okay, thank you for clarifying.

I'm afraid whenever someone says, "that looks like so and so" , and I have not mentioned said so and so as an inspiration, it leaves a negative connotation of me; like a person is accusing me of something. I don't see any other reason why one would mention it.

Again, thank you for the clarification. Sorry for being defensive; it's just a thought process I can't shake, unless a person says they're not accusing me of something.

Yeah. Under the same name: fydbac. I customized the page and have a small gallery, but I really don't go there except to chat with a couple of friends who are only really contactable through there. It's been months (maybe a year) since I last seen my actual page.
