SK's Art Thread 

Message par mercurialSK » Ven Avr 11, 2014 4:05 pm

Hi, I'm SK :)

I'm a little obsessed with improving, so if there's anything to critique I'm happy to receive (or give, let me know if you're wanting... word of warning, I can get very nitpicky at times).

Sorry, I don't take requests, only commissions.

Sprites:
Standard use conditions a écrit :- Hotlinking is preferred.
- Using, editing, and redistribution is allowed for non-commercial purposes so long as it is on the permission list.

Getting on the permission list:
- Credit must be present
- Send me a link of where your thing is once it's up (you don't need to ask beforehand) so I can take a look at it and promo you :)
- Linking back isn't required but it is appreciated.

Standard use conditions apply for all sprites in this section, except where specified.
Brackets go (still sprites + startup or animated + miscellaneous).


Public works in progress:

...Almost AA4-style, anyway. Maybe there'll be a v3 in the far future.

Poses are based on flipped (not mirrored) Dual Destinies sprites, and mouth movements referenced off Let's Plays. Sort of, anyway.

This is a set to extend Rajin's existing Athena Cykes sprites (also included in the album as the original exports by ApolloGrimoire were not correctly aligned). The breakdown is currently (5 + 1) Front and (10 + 0 + 4) Co-Counsel.

These were originally a rush-job for AAO's Bright Age comp. Can't believe I've been doing this for over a year...

This set's conditions are slightly different in that fangames on AAO are exempt from mandatory crediting, because this set has been added to the AAO editor.

Concept a écrit :This is an AU based on one of the Bad Ends from Dual Destinies, where Apollo quits the Wright Anything Agency and doesn't smile again. An obviously false confession where the prosecution did nothing to pursue the truth is not unfamiliar, but when it's in a case that's extremely personal, a lack of answers drives Apollo to disappear.

Five years later, he returns as Prosecutor Justice. He chooses to wear his badge and a tie that resembles his most valuable memento to avoid damaging the real thing; every time he sees his reflection, he's reminded of his failure and his resolution.
"In our legal system, the prosecution holds the power. I'll use it... to close every case the way they should be closed!"

My first sprite set and real entry into Ace Attorney spriting.

I learnt so much from making this set, remake after remake and palette after palette. I'm glad I managed to document it so I can reflect on my progress in the future.

Spoiler : Single sprites :
Image
"Hahaha...Athena, you realise ninjas aren't real." (for Kurain-themed comp)

Image
A quick Constance Courte test.

Image
"Neil" A random sprite for this assistant-themed comp. He's an antiquarian that likes collecting pewter spoons and has a generally everywhere fashion sense. He doesn't have a special lawyer sidekick cheating ability(TM) but the judge likes him (they're bald friends) and sometimes he persuades the judge to lighten penalties XD

Image
For the Secret Agent Man comp. It's just a draw-over so I tried off-setting the laziness by adding at least half an arm. XD


Miscellaneous:
Spoiler : Usable stuff :
No need to request permission, credit would be nice (mandatory where specified), show me what you come up with. :)

My sprites are also free to edit as well (unless specified).

A bunch of prosecutor's badges: Image

Blackquill's surcoat (for lx1.ica here) Image Credit mandatory.
(Because I was procrastinating on things, I also added Apollo's head to it and made a progress gif too...)

Spoiler : Old Stuff :

Original:

Image
A hypothetical(wishful thinking) GS6 "first case/last case boss", Reagent Heilbronn. Senior criminalist to Ema (who finally becomes a forensics scientist, more wishful thinking) and pretty much guilty for tampering with the evidence testing process ... because everybody in the games takes forensics to be 100% correct all the time. (32 colours.)
Please ask before using or editing.

Image
Co-counsel base for ApolloGrimoire. Cannot use, but free to edit.

Crossover:
These crossover sprites are drawn in a hybrid of the Ace Attorney style and the original source.

Black★Rock Shooter from Black★Rock Shooter. Didn't get around to adding the flame.

I like it! The Violet "fanart" (is it really fanart since you drew the original character :P) has a really cool style, and I like the colouration of the Athena one. I can't really leave any critiques since I'm not an artist, though, but I like it!

Don't worry so much about leaving critiques, heh. Critiques are nice but forcing them isn't very... useful, I guess? Knowing what's liked is just as fine. Any comments are great, really, better than radio silence.

And yeah... I guess I'd say it's fanart, yeah, since she might have my design but she's not my character... :side: Plus, that art's not actually accurate to her design... Admittedly, it's actually really weird drawing her outside of actual art assets because of that. Like I should ask permission or something :/
It's good to know you like it and my "actual" style :) Sometimes my art turns out weird because the AA style is so different, lol.

Some update.

Spoiler : Perspective/composition practise I guess :
Image
A character I designed for the Ancestors and Descendants comp a while back that didn't look Ace Attorney enough or resemble Apollo enough (bracelet and outfit aside), but I like her design.

That cat-ear headset/Court Record projector is on its third revision here. It includes 3D evidence view mode because of its two cameras, a decent processor and removable hard disk behind one ear and a battery pack behind the other, so it has general smartphone features like web access/maps/communication/etc as well.

Spoiler : Mecha Phoenix :
Image
I've been re-watching Gundam, so here's a quick and random sketch.

Shining objection? SHINING OBJECTION!

Also if anyone cares I'm actually officially collaborating on Chris Tenson: Ace Attorney now, which shouldn't really be much of a surprise XD

Damn. I figured you were good from the critiques I'd seen around the forums and you work does not disappoint. I like the style you have going, especially in the Ancestors Comp character one and the Chris Tenson character.

It looks like she is holding her left hand in the air. Maybe it is because of everything falling apart but those stairs are weird as they are smaller on the top of picture while we are looking from above. And if she is climbing up then with her pose she should fall down instead of looking cool ;P
When you are drawing stairs in perspective all lines parallel to the ground converge to a vanishing point set on horizon line and all lines that are at an angle converge to point that is set directly above/below the vanishing point. In three points perspective you have to use third vanishing point to determine how to set a point directly above/below vanishing point.

Honestly, it's probably only the colors on the vest that make you think that, SK's descendant has some really obvious differences judging by both pictures.

Thank you! :D
The style does make it a little difficult to synergy with the official Ace Attorney style, though...

In three points perspective you have to use third vanishing point to determine how to set a point directly above/below vanishing point.

Oops... uh, they're not stairs. Otherwise yeah, what you said. It was more for drawing her in perspective, I guess... truthfully, the background is eyeballed lol, though I did draw the segmentation for her proportions. :sawhit:

I guess she could have been posed better, yeah, but there's not a lot that can be done with the screen in the way and one arm is raised and bent already. Her hand is posed like that because she's in the middle of using the headset. I could move the elbow back and bend the arm inwards some more but the main reason I had for raising it was to highlight the bracelet. Unless you have any suggestions?

Lind a écrit :That looks... unsettlingly similar to my Apollo descendant.

...Oh. Wow. Hm. I can see how you'd think that.
I agree with Dave, but I don't plan to use her design again in the future if that helps. I never liked this style of uncanny family resemblance honestly.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not calling plagiarism or anything. I just think it's a weird coincidence.

I guess we both had the same thought in regards to switching the colour of the tie and the vest, huh. XD It's sort of difficult to come up with an opposite-gender uncanny resemblance without making them look like a carbon copy of the original but gender-swapped.

Finally got around to doing more work on the Apollo co-counsel set after taking a break because I was stuck on the second pose. I think this is version 4? Hm. Cleaned up the older poses to look more like him too, so the entire set is on v2. Wrist injury? What wrist injury...

I don't have much by way of an update, I've been busy studying for exams and studying Nuri's/the Ace Attorney art style. Have something from the latter I guess.

Spoiler : Justice practice :
Image

Not quite there. Almost.

This rendering method is an interesting way to practice because it forces me to identify the shape of the shading before I start to shade, inspired by animation cels. It's fun.

Anyway, even though my sig says pose 4 is done for the counsel sprites, I'm extremely unhappy with it and I can't pinpoint why. The final version will be released eventually. :/
