Blade Under Mask: Extra Characters Design 1 by White-Mantis Blade Under Mask: Extra Characters Design 1 by White-Mantis
:bulletred: EN :bulletblue:

This is the result of a quick challenge proposed by my dear friend and best brainstormer :iconmarcotonio-desu: and me, to design some extras for Blade Under Mask, as extras are an important part of a story too!

He picked some species along with some keywords and threw at me, so I could design a character. Our goal was to make quick sketches, in under 20 minutes. All sketches took under 20 minutes to be made, except for the soldier, which took around 1 hour. Of course, coloring not included. His suggestions were:

1 - Camel Spider: Old herbal medicine maker/seller (funny fact: only after we had finished this one, we discovered the 'bug' we looked at as a reference wasn't real, but a hand-made! Hahaha fail, we still like it though! In fact, this one is my favorite from the batch!)

2 - Velvet ant: Aristocrat little girl, obligatory fan

3 - Jerusalem cricket: Soldier of the empire

4 - Stinging nettle caterpillar - Party/festival hoster

We were very much satisfied with today's result, and we'll be doing more as soon as possible!

And remember: despite everything here being inspired by japanese culture, I'm not going to follow it 100%, but going to throw in my personal preferences and things I think would make the story better, so this isn't 100% accurate!


:bulletyellow: PT :bulletgreen:

Esse é o resultado de uma desafio proposto por meu querido amigo e melhor brainstormer :iconmarcotonio-desu: e eu, para que eu pudesse criar designs de figurantes para Blade Under Mask, já que figurantes também são importantes!

Ele pegou algumas espécies junto com algumas keywords e me deu, para que eu pudesse desenhar baseado nisso. Nossa meta era fazer esboços em menos de 20 minutos. Todos foram feitos em menos de 20 minutos, com excessão do soldado, que durou aproximadamente 1 hora. Pintura não inclusa, é claro!

1 - Camel Spider: Velho fabricante e vendedor de remédios herbais. (Curiosidade: somente depois de terminar ele, foi que descobrimos que o inseto em qual nos baseamos não era real! E sim um modelo feito à mão hahaha! FAIL, mas ainda gostamos dele!)


2 - Velvet ant: Garotinha aristocrata, leque obrigatório

3 - Jerusalem cricket: Soldado do Império

4 - Stinging nettle caterpillar - Anfitrião de festa/festival

Fcamos muito satisfeitos com o resultado e pretendemos fazer mais vezes assim que possível!

E lembrem-se: apesar de tudo aqui ser inspirado pela cultura japonesa, não irei segui-la em 100%, mas colocarei elementos de minha preferencia ou que acho que melhorarão a história.

Samurai Cricket?

HELL YES, I would watch that show/read that comic 'til my eyes started bleeding.




So is this something that I can look forward to in the near future or is it a pet project?

I've always kind of imagined Bulldog Ants as being the soldier types. Maybe Samurai? Either way, your artwork is simply stunning. Keep up the amazing work.

Wowzers, these are some really neat designs!
It's probably in reference to something that I am ignorant to, though.

nossa, que diferente essa camel spider ela tem cabeça torax e cefalotorax, parece uma formiga com aranha oO e o tamanho dessas quelíceras oO
mas é dahora.

Ficaram todos muito bons mesmo!! Eu to adorando os seus personagens, e o seu traço tá muito foda!
a que eu mais gostei foi a formiguinha, que gracinha!!Adorei as roupas

maravilhoso ;u; contiiinuaaaa *¬*

uma garotinha formiga?? hmmm, ja tento abelhas? aliais, acho que seria interessante se você explora-se as colonias de insetos, por exemplo as abelhas, a colmeia poderia ser tipo uma aldeia de casinhas organizadas no interior de uma grande caverna com uma abertura em cima onde entra a luz do sol, a aldeia teria a rainha claro, e ela teria fabricas de mel e produtos medicinais e alimentos relacionado a nectar e flores. Isso vale tb pras formigas e cupins <:

o mundo deles tem um "tamanho" normal, ou as coisas são gigantes? flores gigantes, arvores gigantes, etc. Seria legal se existisse a sociedade dos insetos vivendo sua civilização como pequenos, mas tb exista seres gigantes vivendo no mundo. assim como agente e os insetos.

How fitting for the jerusalem cricket to be a soldier. Those things are freaky. Good work as usual! I love your insect people.
