Lotus and Antelope by TysonTan Lotus and Antelope by TysonTan
UPDATED 2011-08-17 Color adjustment.
SYNC series [link]

NAME: Marut June
SPECIES: Blackbuck (Indian Antelope)
COLOR: Black / Yellow / White
JOB: Messenger

SYNC characters are mostly robotic androids based on anthropomorphic animals. Design may be changed in future development.

More information about this character:
Marut is a messenger who delivers real letters and goods to the regions that no communication or transportation network is established. Sometimes he also delivers information that can be insecure to transfer on the network.

Marut is from India region, he has a real robotic body which resembles the look of a Blackbuck. That's why I added a abstract lotus with him in this picture. "Marut" is the name of a group of hindu gods.

He can run as fast as 200km/h constantly when he was just produced, and is becoming faster and faster with hardware and experience improvement.

His chest is hollow to contain small but important objects. A container is mounted to his back when he needs to carry more than his chest can do. In this picture he is equipped with a pair of roller shoe gear which is used inside a city or a race. He has a lot of gimmicks all around his body but I will explain that later in other pictures.

In the story of SYNC he is a member of the “Sleeping Beauty” team which escorts the last human girl "Alice" to their capital city "Xian" from the relic site. He acts as a messenger and a sentinel in the team.

Your style, quite simply, rocks! Animal based anthropomorphic animals are by no means a new idea but you go way beyond just breathing life into this style! :D

sorry ç,ç
MHzDemon Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2011
Love this one, but the shading in really awkward. you have the face more lit up than the rest of the body and it's not that much closer to the light source than the rest of the body.

You make the light to be coming from a bit behind the character yet the right arm is dark, no light is hitting him at all. The shading on the legs is properly done, but the rest of the shading on the toon makes it look awkward.

Can't do Critique so this is the best thing I can do.
nocara Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2011
Really nice. i like her horns, specially how you made the union with the face. And as always i enjoy the constrats between the soft part than looks like flesh and the mechanic parts

Been waitin' for another one like this.

Kudos to you and your robotics.

Truly, I believe that if this is your step to growing and changing or adding to your art...your doing it wonderfully.
I find much inspiration from your art becuase of its cute characters. They remind me of mine and i wish i could get to this level of design and definition in my characters.
If you don't mind me asking, could you tell me how you start off drawing you more robotic looking characters such as this?
I've been looking around and going back to the basics for making my own types of andriod/robot characters but haven't really found any good tutorials.

Mahsira Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011  Student Digital Artist
Beautiful :)
Tenkikun Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm, i think it would be nice with some different light sources with different colors to put a mood into the picture and show how the material shines better.
for example red to the right and white light on the top left or something like that.

Also the backgound dont stand out that much.
More colour wont hurt but not more then the character.
narcoticdream Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011
In answer to your journal: Although this still is a great image, it is less appealing to me than previous work and has a different mood.

Design-wise: love those mecha legs, they seen to differ from the style used in the other character in the series, looking much more mechanized than bio-tech/living tissue, but I like both as much! It's one of my favorite chars in the Sync series so far.

Coloring-wise: You seen to have started from white and then added shadows using gray, am I right? Thing is, this gray is a stale, much less appealing color.

Previous work had brighter shines applied on surfaces (and blue for shadding on the whites) resulting in more vivid colors, this added to the characters as well, making them look more agile, dynamic. The texture on the surface also gives the impression of different materials (which is good ), previous images had me thinking these chars were made out of high tech polymer, alloys, plastic and bio-engineering. This one looks made of metal and porcelain or ceramic plates (specially the white legs). He also looks heavier and sturdier, but the design contributes to that.

It might have been the choice of the gray for the shading added to the gray background, perhaps a new BG color. Azure's shading had her tones set distant from the background tone .

I hope this makes sense. I usually don't comment due to the overwhelming amount of content i run through each day. But your work amazes me and I LOVE it, if i was a very rich kid you are and artist I'd throw money at to see a comic book or game in the making, speacilly since you style is so different from what you usually see in anime, manga and games. Please keep up the great work!
narcoticdream Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011
aaaaand to complement

I said it's a less appealing image, but it's a *slightly* less appealing image. the only thing that truly bugs me here is the shadding over his foot on the right side of the image (his left foot).
narcoticdream Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011
frigging stairway syndrome! last comment!
I would advise playing with this new style a little more, it has great potential!
Sorain26 Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011  Student General Artist
This is amazing hun, I love how you design the character's armor and that you can see how useful it is and I like that a lot. A great amount of detail and I'm loving the new coloring. I love the water ripples too X3. The only thing that confused me was that I thought he was a girl for a second, but I see he is a he. The background looks a little too simple, but it looks great. I know that by adding more could possibly take the focusing off the character. Maybe just add a few tiny details to the background. Besides those two things, This is gorgeous and you did a splendid job.
WondorWiz Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011
I actually like it a bit more than your previous styles. The style of coloring really emphasizes the mechanical aspect while still preserving the living biological aspect. The character looks just as lively as your previous works but with an enhanced mecha aspect, due mainly to the way you did the accents and texture of the metal.

There is one thing though. I'm not the best at shading myself, but his right leg's upper thigh and hip joint, (the mainly orange part), seems like it could use either a bit of light gradient shading and/or a highlight. I'm not an expert or anything, but it would definitely help bring out the shape of that joint. Other than that tiny little thing, I say it's great.

In fact, I think it suits the character and really emphasizes mechanical life. Of course, whenever you change your style up, it takes some getting used to for fans and some development and tweaking for the artist until it's just right. You've got incredible talent and I'm sure whichever style you continue with will develop even more.

And of course, beautiful work. My favorite aspect is the way you did the chest and ears~

so cute!! so cool!!
XUnlimited Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2011
II think what happened is that you did it so detailed that looks... static, I saw many of your previous pics, and in all of them they looks like if they had a spark of animation, but he is as if were part of the background.

You are so talented at combining organic animals and mecha. I normally am so burnt out on giant robots that I won't even look twice, but this piece of yours captures exactly the right elements to catch my attention, hold it, and then lead me to fave the piece. Bravo.
