Myab by Paperiapina Myab by Paperiapina
This is one of those moments when I reeeaally wish my computer's screen would show things in their real size.. Few days ago I wondered how would it look like if taur-shaped grocor like Myab danced. So, I started sketching, as usual. My first drawing that is done completely during my vacation. Yay! ^^ And the first real picture of Myab. I have drawn him once before, but.. Well, the previous pic can be seen here: [link] You can see the changes yourself. Looks a bit better now, doesn't he?

Myab is a blue grocor. In his world people are divided roughly in two cathegories, the light people and the night people. Night folks usually means troll-related creatures that are most active at night time. Grocors belong to that group. They usually spend the daylight time in caves or other dark places and come out when the sun sets, yet it isn't too unusual to see one at daytime. They are strong creatures and in some places people pay them for their service, like in harbors (and people never forget to pay them, grocors are famous of their stubborness and once you let them down, they will remember it. Which means that you're in a big trouble).

They usually appear in blue, green, brown or gray, yet that's only classification of light people. For example Myab is blue grocor for day-people, but night folks would rather call him a blue-green one. All night people who are related to trolls (also grocors, yet they are very far related) have colored patterns on their skin and sometimes in hair also, but those patterns will show only in bright moonlight. So, it's obvious for night people, but day people usually don't have a clue about it. In this picture Myab is in normal lighting, so his patterns won't appear.

Oh, man! I like this picture. It was fun to draw, and I'm apsolutely proud of his nose. I have before tried to avoid drawing characters with human face, because of their lower part of their faces. Well, I still don't know how to draw lips well, but that nose is definetely a breakthrough for me.

Myab and his race are (c) me, thanks.

That's really impressive, considering that you merged the anatomy of two different creatures, and pulled off an energetic pose as well. Nice job.

Geesh, I'm glad you left a comment in this pic, I had managed to completely forget both the drawing and the character. o.o Honestly. Thanks for reminding me of this one! Now I want to draw him again!

That is cool; you made his pose appear very natural. And wow, looking at your last rendition of him, I'd say you're improving upon yourself at an exponential rate. That was only four months ago (and looked good then, btw).

What is that mark by his left hind-leg?

Thank you. ^^ Bwahaha! I'm getting better.

Ha! The first person to notice it. That's my personal mark. Have you ever read Don Rosa's Donald Duck cartoons? He always hides the text D.U.C.K. to the first screen of his comics, and I'm practising to do the same with my own mark. I think that it shows in cuite many of my recent drawings. In The Hunt song it was carved to the rock, in the Moon Goddess it shows on the ball, in Gea - the Goddess of Earth it's amongst the leaves at the bottom of the picture. Just needs to be found. I'm not as good in hiding it as Rosa, but maybe someday. (By the way, those "ducks" are fun to search. I and my brother usually spent lots of time in searching them from his work. It forces you to look the pictures more carefully than what you usualy do)

You know, it's funny, I had never heard of Don Rosa until I joined DA... it seems he is very popular in Europe, but not in America. When I was a kid I was big into Disney books and movies (oh who am I kidding, I still watch them at my parents house :p), and I used to watch the DuckTales cartoon, but I wasn't even aware there were Duck comics. I was never really into comics, though, so maybe that's why.

You know, I think I noticed the symbols in "Hunt Song" and "Moon Goddess" (haven't got up to Gea on my watch list yet :hmm:) but didn't make the connection. That's pretty damn nifty; I'm going to keep my eyes peeled from now on :paranoid:

It's funny, actually. Rosa lives in America, and that is a pretty big country, but still he has more fans in the Europe, and the most loyal fans he has here, in Finland (at least he has said so) and there are just a little over 5 million people here. Aku Ankka, the Finnish Disney's comic (Donald Duck, if translated) is the most popular magazine in this whole country. He has once said that he has more fans here than in USA, and that's really interesting if we proportion that to the number of people.

:nod: wierd, indeed. I wonder why neither he nor the Duck comics caught on here. Certainly, the cartoons are extremely popular.

Heheh, here is something I came across that I found entertaining in light of this conversation [link] :).

Now that was interesting. I had heard once that someone tried to ban Donald because he didn't have pants, but it was just a joke. I didn't know that it was that 'big' thing.

Tämä on niin upea OwO

Heii tuota.. En tiedä miten kysyisin tätä mutta.. olen juuri luonut uuden foorumiroolipelin, ihan perusfantasiaa. Tässä olisi nettisivujen linkki: [link] Jos vain aikaa riittää niin toivon että liittyisit mukaan. Olen katsellut taidettasi jo pitkään ja sen perusteella pidät fantasiapeleistä, joten jos vain saisin pyytää, ainakin lukaise nuo sivut, jos olisit niin kiltti ^^

Kiitoksia. ^^

Miulla on juuri nyt niin paljon tekemistä muiden roolipelien kanssa, etten enää liity uusiin. Mielenkiintoinen paikka kieltämättä in, pidin varsinkin unimaailman ideasta, mutta jotenkin tuo perus 'hyvä vastaan paha' ei herättänyt kummempaa kiinnostusta. Mutta jokatapauksessa onnea uudelle pelillesi. ^^

Itseasiassa, en sanoisi että se on hyvä vastaan paha. Ei ole hyvää, eikä pahaa. On vain unimaailma, helvetti ja sitten jotain niiden väliltä. En ole viitsinyt juonikoukeroita paljastaa, sillä pelistä menee kaikki yllätykset silloin ;)

Riippuu siitä millä tavalla pitäisi auttaa. Minulla ei kerta kaikkiaan ole aikaa piirtää enää ilmaisia kuvia muiden pyynnöstä, mutta voin tietysti yrittää neuvoa joissain asioissa.

Agreee with the lower part of the human face being tough. Do love how you did his though, the nose is so...unique (not ugly!) its not the generic perfect nose it looks good on him and gives character! And the taurness is delicious!

Ruskea taustalla on studiovärikynällä (numero 55, Vandyke Brown) muuten tavallisilla puuväreillä. Olen vuosien saatossa kerännyt nallepenaaliini kokoelman sekalaisia puuvärejä, ja tämä on hyvä esimerkki niiden käytöstä.

my goddess..i love... LOVE this drawing with a passion XD
That much i would love to buy it and stick it up on me wall :giggle:

the bit i enjoy in this is how the upper and lower body fit together EXTREAMLY well and that to me makes it more realistic and beliveable.

plus the colour is VERY nice in this..his hair with the blue streaks is a nice touch and how the same colour scales down to the tail is sweet

the description to this race was nicely done too, i enjoyed reading all about them ^_^

VERY well done...
this my friend is going to my faves :drool: ...
i LOVE your imagination and creativity!!!!
keep it up!!!
