Summer HEAT 08: datadias by falingard Summer HEAT 08: datadias by falingard
After not-quite-two-weeks, here's the next one! Only two to go after this!

This time it's :icondatadias:'s wizard Hans. Pretty-boy looks more manly with a little goatee, right? Actually, I should probably have given one to HEATed-up Hunter when this all started, if... y'know... I had thought of it at the time. I don't know about you, but I've always been a supporter of wizards with big shoulder guards - so I gave Hans some. That and a flame tattoo going up the side of his neck and face.

Oh, and his footprints are on fire? What? HOPE YOU LIKE IT!

...A goatie? A tattoo? Fire-y footprints? :O_o: ...It's different, yet I can tell it's Hans all the same, especially in the pose and expression. THANK YOU, I LOVE IT! :heart:

Now, THIS is the difference between you and me. You can add ALL the details you want without making it look cluttered or badly drawn. :XD: If you don't mind, I'll make a lineart out of it to color (with credits and everything). :D

...You know, he DOES look more manly this way, AND without losing his slim body type. The tattoo and fire under the shoes actually give me ideas. They could appear only when he's casting his magic... Oh my, the inspiration is flowing! Can't stop it! Where's my pen?! :typerhappy:

Can I take some of your changes? Not everything, just 2-3 things. Pretty please. :fingerscrossed: I'll credit you if I ever manage to write the book and publish it. :XD:

Awesome! Glad you like it, and it's not too freaky for you to see him with facial hair :D

Sure, you're welcome to ink/colour the drawing and pull as much inspiration as you want from it. Let me know if you need a higher-resolution version!

...Just wanted to show you what your sketch inspired me to draw: [link] It's actually more normally proportionated than the ref. drawing I gave you. :O_o: I hope I can keep this level of skill onward and beyond. Thank again for the sketch. :D

...Well, it was strange at first, but after a couple minutes it grew on me (lolpun), and when I sketched him with the goatee and (different) shoulderpads, I had to admit that he's HOTHOTHOT with it. :drool: And yes, a higher resolution would be much appreciated, though I can start inking only in a few days, when I'm at home (on holiday now). :D

Usually I'm afraid to add too much details 'cause I'm not as good as you comics people, but I realized Hans, and my other characters, deserve it, so I'll keep practicing. Thank you again for adding more awesomeness to my boy. :heart:

I love the idea of the footprints on fire :)
