Solaris Sketchdump 1 by Tyshea Solaris Sketchdump 1 by Tyshea
WOO, so now that we're out about this project being it's own thing, here's a sketchdump! Sorry the font is so small, I had a lot of stuff to shove in here :I

Anyway, it's pretty self-explanitory, so I hope you enjoy!
The rest of this project can be found in this gallery!

I wanted to nitpick and mention that identical twins have to be of the same sex when they're born. Of course, one of the twins could be a transgender, but from the sketches it appears that one is male and the other is female. Like I said, nitpicking.

I specifically mention that Yozu is ftm, or a trans man. He's even got the chest scars

ahhh okay. Must have missed that bit. Makes sense.

I'm just curious, are most of the characters in this part of the LGBT(Q?) community? Or are these just the characters you've taken particular liking to?

you and :iconai-bee: are my absolute inspiration when I get stuck on character design or story development. Your artwork is just so amazing and I am so glad I found you guys because so day when I feel like giving up on my work I look at all the art I have faved by you guys or maybe just go through your galleries for the millionth time and think to myself "Maybe if I work at it I can make it maybe close to their skill. Maybe I can be as amazing as they are."

Thank you for being my inspiration and for not being afraid to be who you are.

Not sure how far technology goes in the set universe but the unnamed baddy, to me anyways, looks like he would be capable hand to hand combat specialist who maybe utilizes a technology that can manipulate kinetic energy? I don't know, just spit balling if he still doesn't have a set identity yet.

It's definitely an idea! We're still playing around with tech and powers right now, but I'll tuck that idea away for possibilities
Thanks! :D

Or if he's supposed to be a significant villain his abilities could be the manipulation of any energy, making him a significant challenge for the heroes.

P.S. I was wondering if I could run a few character ideas by you I'm trying to flesh out for a story I'm doing.

Have I told you that I think this project is cool, because I totally think it's cool. Like I sort of miss the ATLA setting but that's because I love ATLA. The look of this whole thing is just...GAH. This style is Cyberpunk, right?

I'm a pretty visual person so seeing some of the clothes and technology for the world is just so interesting to me. I also just really like how everything in this dump is mostly really dark with a splash of color in the hair or the tech (and the eyes too). I don't know if it's for recognizing characters or what but I really love it. And I'm just interested in everything and have a bunch of questions buzzing around in my head (like does Yun use sign language to communicate or is there a technological method that allows for that? If there is does Yun even have access to it since they're an orphan and a zillion little things like that).

But yeah, woo!

DAMN, "WOO" INDEED HAHA Thank you so much!
Yeah, this style is cyberpunk. I'm really happy you're digging it so far, because removing them from the AtLA world was pretty hard for us too.

The pops of color do help differentiate characters, but it's mainly the aesthetic I'm going for this project
I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOUR QUESTIONS, I may not be able to answer them but it's always great to have them so it prompts some ideas for us!
But to answer the ones about Yun: yes they use sign language! They were picked up by a shelter group and taught how to communicate. I think we could use some kind of tech for that too, but I like the idea of sign language most

I really love how as the sketches progress, Kajur's become more visibly aged and Hiu is pudgier and more physically androgynous than before.  I wish I understood the concept of genderqueer/gender fluidity a bit better, but I really like the idea of unconventional beauties sexing it up. =P

As a side, really liking the detailed tats on the unnamed baddie as well.  Any tips for fleshing out a sleeve tattoo design? I'd like to include some on a character or two of mine, but I can't seem to come up with anything that feels coherent enough as a fully-fleshed-out piece of art.
Reply
:icontyshea:
Tyshea Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, it's a constant push to amp up my character variation!
Gender fluidity can be weird at the beginning, but it's mainly understanding the ways people express gender, even between different days for the same person. Glad you like it regardless! :XD:

Hmm, designing tattoos is always hard, I don't really have a set method at the moment, but let's see if I can break it down simply:
1. find the style of tattoo you want, tribal, geometric, watercolor, etc, here is a good guide: dyemelikeasunset.tumblr.com/po…
2. research the style you want, what are some common design elements? eyes, letters, banners, fish, etc? What are the coloring methods and common color palette? Pick some that you think reflect your character well
3. more research, what are common spots for this style? in the dump, my baddie is based on yakuza tattoos, which are usually limited to the arms and legs in very blocked-out areas. Placement helps sell "the look"
4. branch out and make it unique to your character, break the rules a little

Tyshea Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I'm not sure right now, since me and Bee are debating using gender neutral pronouns for the whole world
For now I'm using "they/them" for just Marduk, but it'll probably become everyone in the future :)

I wasn't sure if you knew this, Ty, but there already are some languages (Finnish, Hungarian and Turkish being examples) where there is no distinction between "he," "she" or "it" (or at least the first two).  I think since it's something that some cultures already reflect in language now-- and I assume they're actually speaking another language and it's being translated for us readers-- it wouldn't be too much of a stretch for that to be the case in this world you're building at all. =)

Haha I'm very aware, it's that way in Mandarin too, which is why I thought of it in the first place! I actually have made it official, which I'll announce in my next sketchdump :)
Thanks for lookin out though!

Mr. Unnamed Baddy is tatted up, g'damn! He kinda reminds me of an oyabun.

Also, Kye's bodyguard outfit reminds me of the suit Raiden was wearing in Metal Gear: Revengence. ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLYEaA… :P)

"Your team deserves credit as well, Mr. Quick Silver." XD Oh god, that's going to be stuck in my brain forever now.
