Clyde by suzuran Clyde by suzuran
More Clyde:

I actually drew the original pencil work for this 2 years ago ;_; And left the poor guy alone.

This is my original character Clyde, just standing around in the room he usually hangs out in. Dreary, huh? :D

I didn't use any textures for this, just Photoshop's default brushes :) Just wanted to experiment and see if I could do something insanely detailed.

There's not much more iconic than a brooding man in a jacket sitting in a filthy alley, or some place similarly crusty looking. And this broken down lab looking place certainly fits the bill, weighing in at about six pounds of crusty crammed into a single five pound bag.

Not an original concept, but then again we're all inspired by something we've seen in our lives. And originality is certainly not the only criteria for success, fame or enjoyment. Look at Halo, for example. Not original at all, but still lo- No, Halo sucks, bad analogy. Look at Fallout 3, it's not entirely original, and it may be the best game ever made! Likewise, this is one of the best brooding grunge background dudes I've seen.

Like a lot of your recent stuff, the character has a delightfully asymmetric design. Most people seem obsessed with the notion their characters will be in video games one day, and that it's easier to sprite symmetrical characters. It seems you are not afflicted with this disease and put in a few little touches to bust up the symmetry and enhance hsi dark brooding attire and look.

The background is an extremely well executed mess. So much brick brack simply lying hither and yon. It's an appealing pile of junk but he stands out amongst it. You must have spent quite a bit of effort making it look all crusty like. I have some really neat brushed which might help you make that a little bit easier. Not your usual terrible grunge brushes. Hit me up for those on AIM sometime.

At any rate, another awesome picture of yours.

His eyes seem to be downcast which makes him seem like he feels nostalgic, but when one thinks of Clyde they of a think of a fool-hardy, ignorant, and violent persona. His face should be tilted up and possible slightly turned one way, as if challengingly. His eyes are good as they are narrow, but the tilted down kinda threw it off.

This is a rather unique way to show Clyde (possibly Sci-Fi) and I haven't seen a portail (excuse my mispelling) of Clyde. It's also nice how you used dark colors to show the darkness that he surrounds himself in.

A good pair to this would be a drawing of Candy, his counterpart. I don't know if you have done that yet, but if you haven't, that would be rather unique.

It's really great! You're a very good artist... I really like how painstaking your artworks are! And your tutorials are really good too! :aww:
