The Plant Spirit Sketches II by AlectorFencer The Plant Spirit Sketches II by AlectorFencer
I was inspired by :iconwolf-wind: biro sketches and thought I could use the biro again to sketch and scribble because the biro ruuules! It's such a nice tool which definately needs more love.

And yay for another little sketch dump which the scanner messed up a bit once again.
I had this concept in my head since the day I came up with the idea to create the plant spirit.
And I find it a bit funny as well. :D

I am completely in love with the Plant Spirit. I can't seem to get enough. It's actually insane how much I cannot stop looking at this character.

Your art inspires me in many ways. I am so happy I found your dA. ♥♥♥

LOVE. THIS.

I cannot even begin to tell you just how much I adore this sequence that you have depicted. You can just feel the spirit melting into the earth. The visuals are so strong, and the sketchy quality is perfect. Love all the plants and roots. Love the wolf-esque being. Love it!

=D! This is so adorable. I love text-less comics... and that's sort of what this is. You know, a series of pictures showing a little story? I can't believe you had the patience to draw such similar things over and over, though. If I did that, he'd be just a mass of squiggles by the end. And I mean... he sort of is, being a plant spirit an' all, but with your care and consistency it doesn't seem like it.

... What's biro, btw? x'D

Thanks so much for your nice compliments. I was surprised by myself taht I could draw such similar pictures in a row underneath each other. Somehow it worked and I think I will try it out once more. I must think about the movements of the spirit a lot more since the plants seem to make it flow more than walk aver the ground. :D
Biro is a ball point pen. ^^

It's sort of cool, trying to picture how a made up creature moves in your head. You should try animating a walk cycle for him! =D And how do you think he should flow? Would you expose less of the legs, so he's sort of being carried by the vines, or maybe his feet would be less solid, and they'd flow over the ground rather than be lifted up?

I was thinking of animating Klak Klak's run cycle. P: His front legs are so flimsy, he'd have to take most of the force of running with his back legs, so his movement would be different than that of other canids.

Fun, fun! xD

I tried to make an animation abou the Plant Spirit but I gave it up after I had to animate the first vines. Bluargh! So much work and I'm so bad at animating. The plant spirit walks with his four legs but it seems to be cumbersome to him. The vines move with him as he moves his legs. It's quite a process which isn't taht slow but slower than normal wolves. XD

Oh jeez, I forgot about the vines. o___o Those would be incredibly annoying to animate! Unless... maybe you could do three or four frames of vine movement, and then have that part repeat while you draw new frames for the legs and the non-viney part of the body. Hm... xD

I almost no longer use normal pencil when I sketch, well perhaps a bit, not much. I like to start with some thin pencil lines with a hard pencil (H or HB) and then draw with biro over it again :3
