I dunno why I'm having a bit of a trouble with writing this, considering it's something related to my own projects.
With that said, anyone that has been sticking around probably knows of my intentions for Aozora's Adventure III
, the third main story of my Aozora's Adventure
series. Though no designs of them have surfaced, I know pretty well how some of them (including the Aozora's Adventure Gaiden
group) would look.
What's primarily stopping me of actually getting out and drawing these characters is that there's only about one or two specific parts of that character that I can indeed say is complete, with the other parts either being extremely simple, nonexistent at all, or too similar to the inspiration(s) of that character. This is what's stopping me from working on Rodrigo, or any other "boss character" from Gaiden
The intended looks for the Gaiden
guys are detailed in a blogpost I made a year and a half ago.aozorasadventure.blogspot.com/…
cast is much less incomplete, since I'm getting too sidetracked from actually developing them and imagining their designs to finding good names and asking around for people I could hire to draw up the concept, and from there I would draw the artwork. Going on a brief description of each boss would be tricky, but I'll try to sum it up as best as I can.
Roast # 1: A somewhat flamboyant blonde pyroknesis with ancient greek/rome-inspired clothing, and angel wings on his back. Currently has the filler name "Icarus Man".
Roast # 2: A primarily white-colored armored knight that's javelin/lance themed; He has a large lance that's curved outwards like a needle built on his right arm, with a small opening on the tip to allow him to shoot fire out of the lance. His helmet also has a lance theme, with a long, triangle-shaped visor pointing outwards (but a standard, solid-color mouthguard) and a bushy red feather on the top. He currently has "Joust Man" as his filler name"
Roast # 3: Think Toriko from the series of the same name armed out with bulky, heavy-duty black armor with loads of weaponry built into the armor, similar to Mega Man's Napalm Man.
Roast # 4: The only female of the Roast Elites, meant to be themed around a South American carnival.
Roast Leader: Think Tsumugu Kinagase from Kill la Kill
redesigned around a volcanic theme, with the same type of armor Roast Elite # 3 has but designed to be volcano themed instead of weaponry-themed. He currently has the filler name "Volcano Man".
The Frost Elites will have to come at a later date as they're very much nonexistent design-wise at this moment.
If anyone feels generous enough and wants to contribute, by all means go ahead. I wouldn't force it.
