As you could probably tell by yesterday’s post, I have become somewhat enamoured with the to-be-released Novakids of Starbound. Their designs can be remarkably simple, they don’t really have any facial features to speak of, and to top it off they have plasma inside them which glows and they’re essentially stars. What is imperfect with this? Nothing. I love it all!
Ahem. Anyway, this character you see here is not an official one (nooo of course not, though it would be awesome!) He’s actually a novakid I made up. His name is George Quartermaster, and he loves trees a lot. He has a bag full of photographs of trees. And as of a recent idea, he has a little pet tree named David.
In regards to the picture itself, this was an experiment. There is a user on deviantArt who has recently posted some speed paintings they have done of landscapes, and it was quite pleasantly startling to see the contrast between most of the stuff they uploaded (which relates to them working on their artistic weaknesses) and then these few pictures. Now, I’m not going to attempt a speedily thrown together landscape yet, but I got the urge to try and make a pretty unfinished picture of some character or other, and George was there. I don’t know where I got the idea of fire trailing from his fingertips, but this picture pleases me tremendously because it matches what I had in my head pretty closely.
