Hi everyone!  Bill Stiernberg here.

I’m getting into an increasing state of crunch mode on building maps for RS4, but I want to keep this weekly article going.  So this week I did my half of an Art Trade – which is where I draw someone else’s character, and they draw a Zeboyd character.  So I drew a fellow RPG dev’s character, Arashi Kageyama from the in-development game, Shadowdawn Genesis.

This is fyrefoxz’s original character, Arashi, who he designed for the game he is working on, called Shadowdawn Genesis. It’s a cool looking action RPG that’s been in the works for a while, although there’s no firm release date yet.

Character info:

Arashi is a shy but proud girl who took up sword training in the care of an imperial family. After being ambushed by a militant group, a mysterious razorcat rescued her. She and the cat, Ket, become friends and go about their adventures together!

The game looks very cool, hope to see it get completed soon – also looking forward to see what Fox draws up for me!

OK so last week I posted a “process” animation showing the steps I took to make the pic.

Since some people found it useful, I decided to do a more detailed process animation so you can see it more slowly / step by step, and see how I corrected some screwups:

This one is longer than the one from last week, showing more steps. It also shows how I fixed some of my screwups along the way.

Hope you enjoy it and/or find it useful!
