Aureus by Canis-ferox Aureus by Canis-ferox
jkhsdf. Was supposed to just be a quick study in grayscale painting with some color thrown on afterwards. I don't really think it was successful at all as what I wanted it to be, but I turned it into a whole thing because otherwise I just wasted way too much time on this. x'D That glove probably doesn't look nearly enough like it has a skeleton-like metal hand under it. But then I wasn't really sure what that would look like (not sure enough to draw it anyway). I could name a lot of things I should have done differently.... definitely not looking for critique here, ha. I have mixed feelings on the outcome of this to be honest; there's something I like about it but then all the mistakes agh. Failed (?) experiments are worth sharing too though, right? : D
Either way, it was nice to draw Aureus again.
The background is completely just a blurred-out photo with some slight color modification. I did want to do a series of character images based on or including photos I've taken in various places for practice, so I guess this could count as a start?

Aureus in a modern day big city. I think he'd last a good three minutes before getting hit by a car. How do street signals?

Haha oh gosh. Even if he managed to not get himself run over, he would be so completely lost. The picture I used for the background is from a smallish city, so I might give him... five minutes, maybe.

I love that fear/anxiety look he has. Very nice.

Thanks! His expressions are always fun to draw.

Aureus is a very interesting character, it would be cool to read some more adventures featuring him.

Thank you, very glad to hear that~ ^^ Writing is a tricky thing (full stories especially), but maybe someday! I did really enjoy writing him.

I know what you mean. I write by the seat of my pants, but it's making sure the stories are coherent and flows well is the trouble. I'm actually working to self-publish soon, if I can figure out how to do that.
Reading your stories, as well as stories made by other people, reminds me that there are a lot of people better than I am, and yet, somehow that inspires me to do the best I can.
