I think it might be time to abuse that wish fulfiller.

Anyways, yet another round of good art! And yes, only the 10th child belongs to Necros.

Also, is that a Jojo reference?

 

Abuse away! I love having multiple different drawings to work on!

 

Yup, both the Rebels and Jesus drawings are Jojo references. Watch out for another one in this update!

 

Anyways, on to the art!

 

First up, Fantasy Doodles!:

There's too much to like in this update.

 

Between the Wulfgard-style "HEYA" meme to the Old School LEGO drawing, I just smiled.

 

Of course seeing my two characters go head to head is always great! Keep up the awesome work!

Nice work on Athens' armor, although I think the next step for you as an artist is to try a different style with character's faces. The style is fine when the scene is cartoonish (like Lego or emulating a cartoon) but when it is combined with more detailed things like a set of armor, or a lot of background material, it can come off as a bit in-congruent.

 

But maybe that's just me. Anyway, keep up the great work.

Ah yes!

 

Seeing Lord Gwyn and Lord Talon fighting puts a smile on my face!

 

I'm also quite a fan of the concept art for your own universe. I'm curious to know more about the place(s).

That's just my art style, dude. I'm sorry if you don't like his simplistic face, but if my faces get too detailed, they tend to look older than they actually are. :P

 

Thanks!

Also, the knight in the center of the fantasy doodles looks especially fierce!

Alright Dalton, I'm going to level with you.  Your art style has improved from the days when all your faces looked the same, and your adaptations of other people's work had gotten a bit more respectful.  But then I noticed something unsettlingly familiar.  Something that not only spurred me to look back at some old images, but then receive the inspiration for this quick meme:

 

med_gallery_15330_272_36298.png

 

Link for original image on left: http://wulfgard.net/...rewolf_Pack.png

 

Then there's the ripoff of how Wulfgard werewolves look and stand upright.  I'm curious about your lore for how these werewolves live and how their curse works, to see if anything else has been "borrowed" from existing artistic creations and claimed as your own.  The theft of the name "Draculea" (which I'm sure you know what it's referencing) is also worthy of mention.  You have one chance to explain yourself before I formally accuse you of plagiarism.

Yes, the similarities between the Werewolf in my drawing and Scorp's Werewolf are intentional. I specifically used that image as a reference for the pose I wanted that particular Werewolf, but I did not purposefully copy their design for their Werewolves.

 

However, the lore of the Werewolves in my fantasy universe and the ones in Wulfgard are completely different: for one thing, I don't have a defined lore for them, but its not like Wulfgard at all. Werebeasts and Vampires (i.e. Werewolves, Werebears, Wereboars, etc.) are essentially a side effect of the dark gods Chemosh and his brother who doesn't have a concrete name yet. Essentially, both are gods of war who become so corrupted with evil, that they go on rampages in bestial forms, killing all in their path. Chemosh's bite causes his victims to become Vampires, and his brother creates Werewolves with his bite: though both gods' physical forms were eventually killed, their 'children' were still around. Non-Werewolf Shapeshifters either existed before this or were created by other dark gods. Unlike in Wulfgard, where Werewolves are a curse, in my universe they are a disease. Am I going to lose points with Wolfy for going with that choice? Probably, but at least I won't get knocked for plagiarism. 

 

I don't remember if I decided to call Draculea that before or after I knew that it was a name that existed in Wulfgard. I do plan on changing it once I find a good replacement, but right now its the best I can come up with.

Then in the future, you will mention the artist and work that inspired you, in a proper manner.  I do not require you to use full APA-formatted citations for a drawing, but flipping an image over and adding a few bits in front of it is NOT enough to make it your own.

 

I actually like the sound of their being descended from rogue deities in your lore.  Your word choice of "disease" will definitely lose you points with Maverick, but as long as you don't start lazily mixing in zombie or vampire lore, you should avoid her wrath.  Hopefully.

 

Very well, and I will allow for the fact that you made it the character's first name instead of his surname. However, you need to be more careful with listing sources and crediting inspiration.  It's not that much effort to add a link or even a brief "shoutout," but failing to do so can get you sued or fined if you're not careful.  Not to mention if you plan to go to college, where plagiarism can ruin your grades or even get you expelled.  

 

Drawing inspiration from another artist is not a crime, but taking credit for their work is.  Even done without malice or intent to steal, denying an artist credit is to deny them their livelihood, which is a bad habit for anyone to get into.  Remember this.

Still really like those LEGO to non-LEGO drawings. Can't put my finger on it, but I really like it!

 

I also like the mail, on the zombie soldier. The overall detail is nice!

 

Keep up the good work!
