EDIT: I use prismacolor and copic markers! *sigh* I'm sorry, but I've had people ask me that A HUNDRED TIMES OVER NOW! I WILL STOP ANSWERING THAT QUESTION IF IT'S ASKED!
Okay, I have FINALLY posted what their suits actually look like in the story.
I used a heckova lot of references, especially for Ferb and Buford. The online game Emil Chronicle Online
was used as the basic references, although I did go into Warcraft and other fantasy paintings for ideas.
was flippin HARD to draw. I hate armourrrrrrr and paddinnnnnggg XD Most of my sketches don't have Buford in them because of that. XDDDDDDBaljeet
was the easiest of course. He's a monk---i mean, Rope Maker, hee hee! He has the sword with him for a bit, but he hardly uses it.Isabella's
was the first costume I designed. Initially, she was supposed to look like a beautiful woman with a beautiful gown and every thing, but that changed because they'll be doing traveling and.... well, I kinda imagine Izzie being a bit of a tomboy as a teen every now and then. She likes to look good, but she doesn't make a big deal out of it. A lot of the female archers I looked at either wore REALLY short skirts or really long ones, so I made one decent enough to be called short but still long enough not to be inappropriate. Ferb
..... Oh, GOD, don't get me started on how HARD it was to shade his armor. omigosh, kill me now. XDDDDD I actually just chose a position from a reference of ECO, because I was kinda lazy and didn't have very much experience at drawing swords. Ferb's armor is a bit of a "borrowed" idea from ECO, although I did ad a few of my own touches here and there and took off some of the detail to make it easier to draw. Please don't tell me that his arms look weird holding that sword.
The guy in the reference was holding it that way too XDDDDDD Because I don't have experience at drawing armor, I did borrow most of Ferb's from ECO. He also wears a green cloak, just like Buford and Isabella, but he doesn't have it on here.
Oh, yeah, and his sword in Magical. THat's why it's blue.... but you'll learn more about that in Book TWo and Three.
....... Gee wiz, I redid his costume I don't know HOW many times. This was the initial, although I hated how it turned out because it was..... well, too plain
for someone as special as the Seer. And my blue markers were all the wrong shades too. His robe stayed the same though, and so did the boots. His Staff (you'll see it in the Second Book) got a little longer and a little more detailed.... the reason it only looked like a ball on a stick in the book cover is because it got confusing to draw the lines on the orb's design. The Stone got more simpler too.And booyah for me--> This was the first time I drew a REALLY worried looking Phineas (PBIE doesn't count) and it was the first time I went hardcore in designing suits. Kudos for me, hee hee!
These were all sketched in early December, back when I had the idea of writing The Seer.
I linearted them before getting on the plane back home for Christmas, on the 16th of December, and I colored the in when I got back home AFTER Christmas. So yes, these have been sitting around in my sketchbook since January.
Et voilà mes amis
