A quick doodle I want to make into a really nice bit of art when I have time. Meio Dia and Val. <3
It’s part of three, this being the subdued one.
Oh, you know.
Just Valentine and Meio Dia chillin’ out all naked ~♥
Ten years ago Val was having an identity crisis.
Now he’s relaxing with big breasted Creators, sipping tea while gangsta-leaning.
August 25th 2004 - Hi, Valentine!
10 years ago to this day was when Valentines general ‘bunny man' look was first designed and as such i tend to make this day his official birthday. It comes in between all the concept work that came before and all the tweaking-designy-costume stuff that came afterwards. It just seemed like a good date as any to place his 'birth' on.
So, what was i drawing on this day ten years ago?
Well, wanting to stay away from random anthropomorphic creatures and/or standard humans, Val was drawn with two long …things ..coming off the back of his head. Seriously, when i drew them i didn’t intend for them to be seen as ears, i was just trying to aim for something odd and, i guess, ‘nightmare-ish' ..hence why he also originally had two horns underneath his hat. The horns didn't last long because i really didn't like the look of them, so i got rid of that but kept the weird 'ear' things. It wasn't until i showed this design off to the NiGHTS forums that some people said he looked like he had droopy dog ears or bunny ears …then someone literally called him the 'bunny man' because of it and the name ran like wild fire, pretty much cemented his look right there and then. Over the years those 'ear' things would eventually be redesigned to look like actual ears on his head, but aside from that he never fully embraced the 'rabbit' look in its entirety, mainly because i wanted to keep his design distant from straight anthropomorphic elements. Val to this day has no tail, he has normal hands and feet just like your regular human body shape …and oddly no visible nose (again, trying to aim for the NiGHTS-style round-head look by not including a visible nose).
The dreaded tear-drop on his cheek had been transferred over from his last concept design, but by this point i realised it wasn’t fitting the rest of the look so i decided to get rid of it when i was putting the colours down.
And damn, what an awful mixture of colours he had initially. The red and yellow just looked dreadful with his green and white body tone so after about a month later the black and green outfit was rolled out and went on to become his standard look that he’s still rocking to this day.
I’m honestly kinda surprised in myself that he’s remained pretty consistent since then. Aside from adding and removing little things like tattoo’s and various clothing emblems, his overall look has stuck. And i’ve never ever felt uncomfortable or distanced from the design, it really has become this ..image ..that i just associate with myself even ten years later.
So, hey! 10 years, huh?
Damn, i remember when we were waiting 10 years for SEGA to make a sequel to NiGHTS and that felt like a long ass time …but creating Val? 10 years ago? …seriously, it feels like yesterday and i’m not even saying that on cliched terms.
Thanks for listening to my ramblings, guys. It’s very rarely i share these kinds of things any more …it almost felt like DeviantArt circa 2005 again, lol.
Anyways, i’ll leave it there.
Happy 10th Birthday, bunny man! You son of a bitch, lol.
Here’s to the next ten ~♫
Because i’m not sure if there is a way on Tumblr to directly reply to comments that people leave on your posts, this one’s going out to smaismai!
You can find us ( me + TRiPPY/Imagni ) running around on Ship 02 …i hear that’s where all the illegal immigrants hang out, lol!
…damn, i made my character way too tall ;____;
Was playing around more with Musika’s concepts while listening to his playlists on my iTunes. Some ideas came to me over the past few days and after today’s little music euphoria, I had to doodle him. My poor arm’s tired, but it’ll be alright.
The first one is some more personality pokes, as well as testing out stuff. Also the genstone will have little indents for the square and point in the center. I also enjoyed avenrir's idea of having a "tail" attached onto a shirt. Muse here didn’t really feel “right” without that devil’s tail from the first design I’ve known him as. I hope it’s alright I snagged that. xD;;;
There’s also a study about him without clothes. His actual sex is… //Magical jazz hands//
I’ve added some lipstick and some other minor changes. Chances are, he’s going to keep changing ever slightly until I know for sure what’s really gonna work here… xD His charming personality will stay in tact, however. More details are coming together and soon he’ll be as complicated as the others.
I’m too simplistic for my own good with designs, haha.
Also functional fashiooooon. Best kind.
I think I’m improving slightly on human-esc things with all these doodles. :x
I love all the little design details ahhh <3 And yeah it’s completely fine for a Gen to have a tail or any other non Genish body part as long as it’s an accessory and not actually attached to them/species altering. Also major lol at the Val cameo <3 Musika is really coming along :) I like it when people care about their Gens ^-^
AH! :D haha! Random Valentine cameo! omgThank you ^.^
Glad to see you’ve fleshed out more of your Gen, it’s definitely a good look for Musika!
Valentine - the Searching
22nd August 2004 - attempting a redesign -
On this day 10 years ago i decided i wasn’t happy with Valentines original ‘human’ look and felt it didn’t match the dream-world i was trying to place him in to. My redesign here came out as something that was borderline to a furry of some sort. I still don’t even know what he was meant to be here, lol. I remember drawing this and not really having an animal in mind, i just threw some awkward looking cat-ears and nose on him and …yeah.
Needless to say but this design really didn’t hit it off with me either. Trying to aim for a more ‘dream-world’ creature and landing on a unidentifiable furry seemed dull and lackluster, even after i transferred over the hair, cape and sword from his previous concept. Either way, i just didn’t feel like it was capturing what i was feeling inside and so this design didn’t last long either.
Due to the ‘emo’ of my real-life situation, i stupidly drew a horrid little tear drop underneath his eye… so Lil Wayne, eat your heart out with a shovel :D
Yeah, unfortunately, the lame-ass tear drop would be passed over to the next major design overhaul that would occur three days later when Valentine would finally embody the look he’s known for today ….thankfully the tear drop doesn’t stay long, lol.
See you back here on August 25th ~♥
All the pantless power you’ll ever need.
… I kind of feel sorry for Meio Dia being left in charge of Generation 2. For these reasons.
Humans are crazy and destructive.
Ok it’s 5am and I enjoyed this too much. Bed. I’m off to set fire to dreams for no reason.
Here’s the next stage.
Lucid Stage 1 - you are aware you are dreaming and now have control over your dream. You are ONLY aware that you are dreaming. At this stage you do not know you are in a bubble nor that there is an entire world beyond your dream.
( lol at the Glimmer escaping the bubble like “fuck this shit!” )
(( it goes without saying but if you don’t know what a Glimmer is, a Glimmer is a creature created by Imagni to oversee peoples dreams and monitor them ))
((( i just noticed the Glimmer was the whale :| )))
(((( Meio-Dia, baby! yeaaaaah!!! ~♥ ))))
Lucid Stage Zero:
Normal boring crazyass dreams the majority of people have every night. Nightmares, anxiety, abstract, the kind of stuff that makes you wake up in the morning and act suspicious around your friends because you probably slept with them lastnight. Yeaaaah dreams. Dreams happen inside bubbles. Imagni doesn’t like bubbles. They clutter her perfectly pretty world like some kind of magical rash that wont go away. She likes humans, but would probably prefer it if their presence didn’t mess her work up.
Imagni, not the most forward thinking of Creators.
LS1 and LS2 explanations due soon. Then you’ll UNDERSTAND how Gens actually *happen*
Pay attention, lol
Here’s how dreams work in our upcoming web-comic Engelbaum, and furthermore how you can eventually awaken as a Gen in Imagni’s world.
It’s all very interesting stuff.
Me and TRiPPY spent a lot of time ironing this out.
This is Stage 0 - Normal Dreaming - regular dreams inside your personal dream bubble that has unfortunately populated and made a mess of Imagni’s world, much due to her shortsighted planning, lol ~
