#17 – Roinal

| November 17, 2011 | 0 Comments

Here’s the father of the little family that one of my main characters is a part of! His oldest kid, Mennel, and his youngest kid, Torran, were both featured on the 30 Characters Challenge! Check them out!

Kollan’s got a few articles up over at my blog. He’s the main cast’s “smart guy” and will be doing “smart” things like engineering and knowledge!

Roinal’s the first Ropoldi character I’ve drawn with his mouth open like this. I should note that if you look closely, you can see he has elongated canine teeth. The Ropoldi diet requires high protein. They live in arid plains and while many of the plants are fine for the vast numbers of herd and pack animals that dwell on the plains, they are not as easy for Ropoldi to eat or digest. The Ropoldi are highly carnivorous and they have longer and sharper teeth to facilitate this better.

Catala’s aide and lieutenant is now up! As always, if you check out my blog, you can read more about the world this story takes place in. It’ll give you the info on characters like Osoron and others!

Oh, also, I’m not actually behind! I just have a few more things to tweak before I can post my next two. Numbers 13 and 14 are coming in on the same sheet, so look for them tonight! 🙂

#11 – General Asom

Number 11! The general of Aremshah!

I am not completely satisfied with his design but I like the colors. But I have him out of my head now, so I can refine the design later!

For more information about her rival, check out Catala’s entry!

I didn’t have time to shade her, sadly! I think she’d look really good if I did. I will fix that soon. Hopefully I can manage with Skyrim coming out tomorrow 😉

Once 30 Characters is over, I plan to draw up (literally) some extensive profiles for each of the five races in my comic. If you’re interested, subscribe to my blog!

You will want to take a look at my last entry, Chiasnos, to understand more about her former lover. Her son, Naskos, is a big guy you can read about on my deviantART!

If you’re on Google+, I have a Page set up for Djinnborn! I’ll be posting other updates, links, images, and world information as I continue putting the comic together. Hope to see you there!

#4 – Minister Khefir

Not entirely sure if I like the colors. I kinda do, kinda don’t. I spent a lot of time tinkering with them and finally decided to be done.

Anyway, this guy’s not all that pleasant to be around, especially if you’re a sorcerer in Aremshah. He basically controls your life. Can’t imagine why he’s nervous about a sorcerer being in a higher position than him 🙂


#3 – Catala

Remember this guy? Well, this is what the women of his race look like. Tall, purple, and willowy.

I didn’t get her completely shaded so I’ll probably replace this image later this evening. She looks a lot better even with the partial shading than without, so I decided to put her up like this.

I should note that in Musia, gender roles are very defined. Women handle most financial matters, men deal with most security and military matters. The two cogs function well as part of a larger whole, resulting in two Musian-led empires in recorded history. That’s why Musian men and women will typically dress and act very differently from each other. It’s almost like they live in two separate cultures.

Musians also have three names, similar to Roman names. They typically go by their “middle” name, with the first being used for formal occasions and the last being how they identify family associations.

I have plans for at least two more Musians (one male, one female), so stay tuned!

EDIT: I realized I left out a word. It should say “she runs a mercantile empire” instead of “she runs a empire”

Special thanks to the Color Scheme Designer website for helping me develop a palette that goes well with sky-blue skin.

Sketched, drawn, colored in Illustrator. You can read more about my setting on my comic development blog!



#1 – Cyricus

| November 1, 2011 | 0 Comments

Cyricus here is the fifth main character for my upcoming webcomic Djinnborn. He is a Musian, a race of militant men, mercantile women, and pronounced sexual dimorphism. The men are shorter, muscular, and built for combat, while the women are tall (the tallest of all the races) and shapely. Women have vibrant purple skin and bright golden hair, while the men have bronze skin and purple hair.

My main cast of five has members of each race (or half-breeds) in each of its numbers. Cyricus represents the Musians as a sign of goodwill. Musia has had a lot of tension with Aremshah (the nation where most of the action takes place) and Ropoldi (Aremshah’s ally), so Cyricus is traveling with the Aremite prince, Osoron (the main character) to foment goodwill between some Musian factions and Aremshah.

Cyricus, like most Musian men, is very martial, very well-trained in a number of weapons and combat styles. He’s also a light cavalryman. However, instead of riding horses, Musians ride great winged beasts into fantastic aerial battles. Since Cyricus travels on a skyship with Osoron, he and his steed (to be drawn as a later character) will get quite a bit of flying practice.

If you want to learn more about the world this game is set in, take a look at my blog or stay tuned as I use the different characters of this challenge to flesh out the world some more.
