Misha and Efim Line art by TysonTan Misha and Efim Line art by TysonTan
SYNC Series [link] [link]

A new design line art of Misha Iceberg the android polar bear and Efim Walnut the android mouse. They are a team of frontier rangers. Both of them speaks Russian. While Misha speaks English very well by installing language plug-ins, Efim has a strong Russian accent and he refuse to improve it. I will color this line art soon.

Other SYNC characters:


Making:
Operating system: Ubuntu [link]
Line art: Krita [link]
Typography and processing: GIMP [link]
I appreciate the effort of all open source communities that make this possible.

What made you choose Russian as their language? lol
Nice robotic designs, and Misha looks like a giant Transformer xD
Is Misha's abdomen supposed to be blank like that? The lines from the chest that run down to the abdomen suddenly stop all of a sudden, as if you erased something. It looks so empty, unless you were trying to make it look sleek or something.
Looks awesome, and I love how active you've been recently!

Strictly speaking, Misha is Russian, Efim is Ukrainian, though. lol

Because Slavic people is a strong national power, and they have interesting connection with us Chinese people. Modern Chinese culture won't be the same without the influence from Soviet Union. Personally I love Russian folk and classical music very much, and their national characteristics and contributions to human culture are admirable. Therefore I'm going to put more than these 2 Russian characters in SYNC.

Misha's design is base on traditional Russian clothes, and it's empty like that. It makes more sense when it's colored.

Never did I know Chinese culture was influenced by Russian culture o-o That's pretty cool

I can't wait to see how the coloring turns out.

Modern culture that is. Especially in the period of 1949-1970s when China and Soviet Union were friendly countries. The "stronger and older brother", Soviet Union had given a large amount of support to help China to rebuild from the wreckage of wars, laying precious technology foundation for further development. Indeed, their support often came with harsh terms, but it's nevertheless truth that China could had been in a much worse situation without such support, and that is something that should never be forgotten. One most interesting point is that Russian Orchestras often adapt to Chinese music titles after 1940s very well, while American, English and German orchestras cannot. It's sad that many young people of my age don't realize (or refuse to acknowledge) such connections at all.

Before and after that specific time, though, the communication between two culture was not as frequent. They are mostly geographically independent to each other, after all.

That makes sense, given the amount of technological development and alliances during that time.
Now I understand the reason for your emphasis on Russian culture in SYNC xD

They both look great, so far. I like the contrast in size between these too. I also really like Misha's suit and how jolly he looks. I think these two must be an amusing team.

Thank you. In contrast Efim is also very explosive in personality comparing to Misha's calmness. I think it's fun to see him jumping up and down around Misha.

Haha Efim is in fact more than 1m tall. It's just Misha who is so huge that makes Efim looks smaller than he really is.

XD I actually understand that. The phrase "so small you put him in you pocket," is actually an American phrase to describe someone who's very short for their age. But its usually used to describe someone's girlfriend or wife.^^;

Not all characters I designed so far will be on the same side. But At least Misha and Efim are more or less on the hero's side.

Have you ever thought of making the SYNC project into a game series? It seems like it would be interesting.
Reply
:icontysontan:
TysonTan Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I would be hard to make. But first I should care the story itself before considering anything else XD

Malt8 Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Very true. I just think it would be interesting. Especially if it would be at all possible for you to create your own characters. If I had any idea how to MAKE games I would drop everything to help XD. But yea, story comes first. Pretty games are nice, but if there isn't a goal or story, then I know I loose interest.

Efim's design is base on the winter uniform of the red army. Guess we used a similar source of reference. But Efim is a boy and his color pattern is a totally different one. I hope this is not going cause a problem.
