My Little OC: Spiral by asemd7 My Little OC: Spiral by asemd7
Well this is my second ever vector and my first OC.

He isn't as good as I would like, and I'm really only submitting him because I thought I might as well.

He's a Unicorn illusionist by the way.

Thanks...

Currently I'm in the planning stages of what to do with him for a larger project.

Sadly I lack the knowledge to do something truly awesome.

hears an idea, how about making him Trixie's mentor =D

His magic is quite distinct from hers actually, she just boasts about her power and displays it in such a way to make it look more impressive then it is. His power just involves perception and nothing more really.

Plus, it would be arrogant of me to make him Trixie's mentor.

Reminds me of Scar and Jafar from disney :)

'Your beard is so... twisted' :D

Slightly forgot to mention that I've been incorporating similar eye thingies on pictures for years. And have been attaching goatees of one form or another as well.

There were more reasons then simply capturing a Disney villain-ish appearance to those design choices.

Well I've always thought Jafar's beard was awesome.

But it's seems a bit strange to me how easily people notice the relatively minor part of his design that was inspired by Scar. That minor part being that little curving corner at the end of his eye.

I've always liked how Disney villains looked and they were definitely part of his design, including some other features less obviously inspired by particular characters.

For instance I've noticed that "evil" lions and animals tended to have longer snouts then their "good" counterparts, something I've noticed in a variety of sources actually. Also, less bulbous heads which is sort of connected.

Another thing is that many times villains would have a tall, slender(Or rather bony) body type.

I actually tried once to more directly copy his features before I discovered how bad an idea that actually was. It seems it's usually just best to draw things ones own way and to never take inspiration from a source too far.

Currently my focus is figuring out how to get more then one picture done in a day(if I'm lucky) and am currently looking around for ways to do that, as I'm quite certain that there must be something I'm unaware of that would be faster then what I'm doing.

Yeah, I was going to just put in Jafar until I looked again to see the distinct eye (the mane probably helped too)

The grotesque is indeed a powerful tool for animators

He's not meant to look grotesque, just...

Capable of appearing like a cunning, resentful, somewhat arrogant and self-entitled character who feels that he should be able to simply take what he wants. Not necessarily a villain but certainly capable of being one and quite definitely a thief, though not a particularly greedy one.
