Defiance Turned Friendship

This is another big Fan Art project finally achieved. Actually, it took me a long time to bring it from idea to reality. I was a little scared by the human figure and its difficulties!So here they come, Sigurd and Hervey from Suikoden 4 and Tactics (Rhapsodia), once rivals, now true friends. I was so happy to learn more about their past in Tactics! They are among my favourite characters in Suikoden 4, they're cute, they're cool and they have a little something (especially Hervey) that makes me fond of them... Now for this particular project, I started by taking photos of me to get the poses right (in my living room with my sword... that was tricky but fun!) and then I made the drawing, sketched on paper, scanned and colored in Photoshop. Then I made the 3D models with Fimo Clay and wrought silver. I had big balance issues with Hervey, because I tried to work without a proper wire skeleton. Yet, after baking, he stood all right! And Sigurd, despite his wire and aluminium foil structure, came out unsteady and I had to correct the feet afterwards. Yes, they have anatomical issues, but it was my first try to make full human bodies with resemblance to a model, so don't be too harsh on me... Their weapons are made from 1.5 mm silver wire, hammered and filed. Left character (Hervey) : Fimo Clay, wires only in the feet, sword of wrought silver. 12 cm tall. About one day work.Right character (Sigurd) : Fimo Clay, wire and aluminium foil structure in the body and legs, throwing knife of wrought silver. 14.5 cm tall. A little more than one afternoon work.No paint used, just clay, a kitchen knife and ten fingers...Background : same characters, computer painted over pencil sketch, own photo and screenshots reference used. About one day work. Photo and collage in Photoshop CS2 made by me. Finished 15 May 2006 Artworks and photo © meCharacters © Konami
