LEPACIES by Jfdp13 LEPACIES by Jfdp13
EDIT (13/07/13): F-F-F-Finished for real this time! An extra in the lineup and the necessary fix of the last background. Original version for the curious ones-->

This was the assignment:

"· OBJECTIVE: a TV production company wants to sell a children's TV show to a channel. You are going to be the one who makes the graphic presentation dossier. The show is about a planet where there are beings that live in community, and each of them have a profession (like The Smurfs)
To draw:
- 10 characters with their characteristic clothing
- 3 animal pets, different from them
- 3 interior backgrounds of their houses (try to be original)
- 2 of the characters work vehicles"

Ah... At last is finished! I actually finished quickly the characters, but i took a while with the backgrounds! The result is decent, so i'm relieved (critiques about everything extremely appreciated!!)
This made me realize many useful things... aspects that i have to improve and aspects i dominate better than i thought! Though i'm pleased with the overall result, right now i could fix and fix many things (some proportions on the characters and some designs, a lot of things in the BGs...), but i won't do it... It's finished! Remember the Golden Rule: Done is better than perfect! (i'll probably fix any problems i could see in the BGs, anyway :T)

In the process of this, tons of ideas came to my mind about the fake show, and well... i hope i could actually make a show about them! Time will say...
Well, i'm do-do-done~~!! PLEASE, tell me your favorites! :L

Description for each thing (from left to right):

☆ Zeft
A Lepacie turned bad! You see that red, thick costume part where his antenna goes? That's specially made to prevent any kind of telepathy, and therefore -among other things- suppressing his presence! Perfect to infiltrate and steal anything he could ever want, right?
☆ Docta
Town's doctor! An avid book eater that wants to know more and more to help others! A very quiet one that mostly communicates trough telepathy!
☆ Yastis
Town's police official! She is the one who investigates any abnormality and solves it, though she mostly is going after the slippery Zeft!
☆ Fanc
Music and physical education teacher! A true acrobat in da hause! Plays almost any Lepacie instrument and loves making music that makes your booty move!
☆ Meil
Fimeil brother! He wants to do everything with his own hands, so he has many hobbies!
☆ Fimeil
Meil sister! Her dream is to travel the world, just like Alucalde did!
☆ Neila
A quirky girl!
☆ Macino
Town's chief engineer! Tends to talk VERY LOUD and makes lots of funny faces, thought that's not his intention!
☆ Nais
Just a nice guy
☆ Magniyard
A brilliant inventor! He hopes to spread his inventions through the whole world, but first he must invent a way to do so!
☆ Ibol
Town's villain! ...Or that's what he calls himself, whatever that means. He used to be town's chef, but one day started to act this strange. He actually continues to be town's chef, even if he denied it. Many think he just got a like in theater
☆ Alucalde
Town's major! After years and years of traveling around the world, he stopped in this particular town to be what he is today; the one who protects everybody
☆ Medic Car
Docta's car! Magniyard invented that antenna amplifier (it shines if a Lepacie feels any abnormality in their bodies, and when Docta connect to it she can know where) as well as the tail system (they are removable and provide different effects, though right now they only use speed tails -more tail parts more speed-)
☆ Police Car
Yastis's car! The fastest in town~
☆ Gatomar
An usual pet!
☆ Perromar
An usual pet!
☆ Cantarin
An usual pet! ...Or that's what Lepacies think about this birdie-thing! She is as intelligent as Lepacies, but for some reason they treat her like a normal pet. She spend most of the time making snarky comments that nobody listen to
☆ Alucalde's Office
He lives there too, so you can also call it his home! When Alucalde is not giving advise to every Lepacie that ask for ti, he meditates
☆ Yastis's home
Just a normal home!
☆ Docta's home (ARGH, this BG is a mess... I CAN FIX IT! -staying awake all night and force myself with a CocaCola until finish the thing at 11AM is relevant-)
It's submerged to preserve Docta's medicines. She has a nice library there, eh? The transparent (only from outside) furnitures were an invention/present from Magniyard!
☆ Size comparison!

I think - for one reason or another - my three favorites among the characters are Nais, Ibol, and Zeft. I guess I have a soft spot for the antagonists. vuv

See, it's stuff like this that makes me afraid to go to school for art. I feel like I would never be able to get all my homework done.

Excellently creative designs, as always. I also like the fact that you went so in-depth with creating individual personality quirks and clearly definable styles for every character and location. I can easily see this becoming an actual series.

Ah, don't mind this! This exercise counts for a whole year of drawing class!
I'm sure you could do it! >=J

A-Ah... Thank you!! xS
About that, the designs themselves are who give me the ideas! I just look at them and the rest comes by itself! My characters stories usually come from their drawings!
And... wow thanks! It would be great if that happened, without a doubt!! Thank you again Bailey! x)

Eh, pues al final han quedado guay los fondos. Aunque el último mejorable, sí.

P:D: Tienes una errata en la descripción. No es de traducción inglés/español, pero tampoco te digo donde por lo del misterio y tal.

These are really cool! I especially like the yellow one in the formal-looking blue clothes. You did a great job with coloring.
