Check me out finishing the art backlog at a snail's pace, as usual |D *HIT* I swear, I've gotta draw some stuff with a proper background - I'm running out of batshit crazy colour schemes to throw together 8| AS YOU'VE PROBABLY NOTICED orz And sorry the frame portion is a bit cut off at the edges - turns out it wasn't quite as lined up as I thought it was. Whoops!
But anywho~ More on the "let's continue the quest of drawing new shiny full body references of characters who haven't had one done in forever!" front
Svein, while he's had a semi-decent share of recent art here and there, it's just never been full body since 2005 [link]
XD; And poor Diana, the only recent art she seems to be getting has been either pregfur (hence an adapted outfit) or where her design is kind of overlapped or covered up. THIS [link]
is her last (AND FIRST?!) full body reference, done in 2003. So yeah... WHAT'S THE DEAL THERE, BRO
So here's fixing that silly nonsense! Once Svein reaches maturity/adult size (in the Colour canon), this is pretty much his look. He's one of my few characters who's all SCREW SHOES, because it just suits him xD; (he'll wear them once he relocates to modern living - but only cause he HAS to XP) And aaactually, this is only Diana's outfit for a certain period - back before she ends up marrying Svein and having his babies
It's what she wore when she was still youngish, living in a male dominated culture where she was very protected/sheltered by her father and two older brothers.
But yes, she ends up meeting Svein regardless, and boooy are her male relatives not happy
Considering Svein is more or less a drifter/archer with a bit of a reputation and no stable prospects, he's certainly not a promising suitor for Diana's affections, as far as they're concerned. But Svein, being that he's very taken and interested in Diana, attempts to pursue her company as much as he can get away with. Which has her brothers treating him with constant threats and hostility, telling him he's nothing and not worth the ground their sister stands on. Lesser men would probably be chased off by this abuse, but Svein's had the later part of his youth in growing thick skin to being insulted, and just smuggly counteracts their remarks with surprising cleverness and wit.
And poor Diana
She's not best thrilled at the fact her brothers are so cruel to Svein (whom she does rather fancy back, much to their denial) and that they're often close to resorting to blows - she usually has to jump between them and scream at them to stop acting like barbarians >>; Not a fun place for her to be in.
Needless to say, things take a rather odd turn when Diana ends up getting sent away to live elsewhere (mostly because they wanted to get her away from Svein) and obviously, Svein has no idea where ._. Which kind of gets him started on a new reason to be travelling around - to find the woman he loves. But he never ends up finding her this way actually - it's not until he relocates to modern country and after a big war she finds -him-, and they're reunited, and end up getting married~ But yeah, that's probably enough story/spoilers for you guys to chew on for now
Lololol, Svein, you such a tall mofo |D; (he's like 6'6" or something) He's got a good choice in weemins though
Diana, U SO PRETTEH~ I love drawing her curly hair ;o; Oh look I'm rambling again, sob. ENJOY GUISE, here's hoping I can keep this art party going
