Saturday Sketch – Katiea in Plate

31 Jul

To keep up with the image theme for this week, I’d like to present yet another Sketch Saturday.

This particular sketch I drew in my notebook during a rather boring meeting that didn’t really involve the work I was doing for the project. It was a really long meeting too, which is why this sketch has a level of ‘detail’ my meeting sketches usually don’t have:

Katiea, a blood elf paladin, wearing spiky plate armor.

Katiea in plate. Healers always wear plate like this, right?

It’s Katiea! You remember her, don’t you? From that sketch before? The awesome healing pally!

“But why is she the subject of your sketch from work?” you may ask.

I’m so glad you asked. You see, Katiea and I were talking about paladin gear, and how that she hated the fact she had to heal in a skirt — she would much rather be wearing pants! So when I decided to sketch her character during work (as additional practice for another drawing, I think), I gave her a tough outfit. With pants. And if tons of spikes aren’t tough, I don’t know what is.

Now, the mace is sized at ‘ridiculously large’, but I figure the nob at the other end is a ridiculously dense counterweight so it makes perfect sense. PERFECT SENSE.

Other than that, I rather like the armor design, which is based on the standard ‘leveling plate’ found in Northrend (even if I made some of it rather large to fill up space. >.> )

So what about you? Have you ever doodled something neat during meetings? Or been annoyed that your healing plate = a plate skirt which is barely physically possible (at least not with complications?) Do tell!

Saturday Sketch – Katiea & Misha

10 Jul

I’m starting yet another post series that probably won’t be regular at all, but I think the weekend is a good time to share my art. Especially since I’ll probably never post on Monday.

>.>

<.<

Anyway, our first Saturday Sketch is a bonafide sketch, on lined paper and everything!

Katiea, a blood elf paladin, and Mishaweha, a Tauren shaman, play with a puppy and kitty, respectively.From left to right, there is an adorable puppy, Katiea, a blood elf paladin, an adorable cat, and Mishaweha, tauren shaman of blogging fame. It’s drawn with pencil on lined paper from a work notebook (as I might have drawn this during a boring meeting), which I then scanned into my computer and gave up on trying to edit the lines out of.

I still have lots of anatomy issues to work out (or ignore), but other than that I think it’s alright. You can see that Katiea (my healing buddy in guild) conveniently blocks Misha’s legs, so I don’t have to figure out which way they bend while she’s sitting down like that. And I still say it’s not too bad of a Tauren drawing, even if I’m still trying to figure out the best way for me to draw them.

That’s all for today! Hope you enjoyed this surprisingly short post (for me, that is)!

P.S. Today is my birthday! Happy birthday to me! *eats cake*
