Art Secret Santa 16
« on: November 29, 2016, 06:35:37 pm »
Greetings ~

Tis that time of year again, so you know what that means, festive cheer to our fellow forumites! Now I know some participated in a physical Secret Santa last year, but I felt that having things sent via snail mail left a lot of people unable to participate. So one might ask, how can I do something constructive and thoughtful for a gift instead of just buying a game on someones Steam wishlist? The answer is simple....an art commission. *shoots himself up to sustain his addiction* The thought goes that since rpgs and VNs are very character centric, perhaps people will enjoy this.

Heres how it works, from now until DEC 12, reply to this thread with:
1) Your intent to participate
2) Preference of an game, waifu, or original character to have art commissioned of them (reference pics help)
3) Any particular theme you'd enjoy

From the 10th and onward, Ill PM people with who they are to get art for. The point being, that a surprise peice of art (character, artist, theme, etc) will be something someone enjoys.

Artists can be found on Deviantart, Pixiv, or whever youd like. As for a price range, please, no one spend more than 50 USD.

From Dec 24 an onward (or such as when the art is completed), simply post the pictures to the thread and merriment abound. Sound easy?

Any additional questions, please PM yours truly. 8)

1. I'm registering my interest in this.
2. Yuki, Cordelia, or Sashiel would be my choices - I'll provide references when I'm at home EDIT: References are now available! Feel free to put them in different clothing if you'd like!
3. Rather than a stock position, I'd like some sort of interesting pose, or perhaps them in the middle of doing something they enjoy. Yuki playing a game, Cordelia giving a speech, Sashiel reading or writing or doing tarot. Other things are fine too, like an active combat stance, for example - really, I'm happy with anything. If you've got a cool idea, go for it!

tempted to do but I have no experience on art requests (can there be scary people of the forest who run after taking money? D:)  and my self is busy to do drawing for while.

1. I'm registering, (school will be over before 20th so...)
2. Takagaki Kaede from [email protected] Cinderella girls.
If you want to suprise me, you can do anything in boundary of 1-2 character, wields shield, armor, and spear awfully specific for wishing suprise
3. Kaede san singing an opening/ending song (game anime etc).
Challenge shall be lyrics are not to be written, but expressed. Looking for a verse or two, not whole song unless challenge accepted so I wish(?) to not see art portraying 4-5 moments at once, but a key scene from the song drawn out. Reason behind this is because justifies my reason to equipping my waifu dangerous weapons I always like concept of music as art! Bonus points if it has voice actor jokes!

example:  song: white and nerdy  art: kaede san trying to bowl with gangsters please don't draw this
challenges (feel free to not do these):
no same/similar outfit already shown in [email protected] , [email protected] cinderella girls, or [email protected] starlight stage.
realistic military theme (aka no fantasy and magic but historic)

1. Registering.

2. A picture of Sylvia, either MRPG or DnDee Sylvia.

3. Preferably, I'd like a picture of her in heavy armor. Specifically, something that wouldn't be out of place in a Pathfinder campaign. The design of the armor is up to whoever gets mine. No boobplate, though.

1. I shall honor this ASS of my presence. (Coincidence something named by Rev has ass for acronym? I THINK NOT!)
2. A spider girl pirate Kurumi! (If you want me to quantify, it's about either 50/50 spider and pirate, either 60 spider and 40 pirate.)
3. As usual with me, Flat is Justice, so no modifying my Kurumi to give her too much boobs O_O (on the contrary, giving her more modest ones I wouldn't mind)

Not sure a reference pic is really needed since just typing her name on google should give result, but gonna do it anyway~

I like this numbering thing everyone is doing. Might as well follow casual protocol~
1. Registering! (Did I do that right?)
2. Makise Kurisu of steins;gate fame, naturally~
3. How about her playing Steins;Gate on the vita, looking all embarrassed at her route ending? More the context of her expression than the theme, but her looking embarrassed at a lil ps vita seems about right for her :D

Okay. Sent out all the messages.

If you didn't get one, message me immediately.

Otherwise, I'll take any possible questions you may have, if they come up, through PM.

While Dee, our industrious elven helper was making posts and tossing PMs about, Secret Santa Rev was busy - there were artists to scout! Out to the field I lead an expedition! And lo,  Santa Revy saw poor Kirimatsu, an artist minding thier own business. 'This will not do', Santa Rev said to himself. 'The holidays are upon us, there is art to be sent for goodwill and cheer!'  So tipping my coffee cup to you all this cold Saturday (which may or may not have a little holiday spirits in it...), I present my Secret Santa gift to one of you....hope you like it 8)

Was all the artist.  I didn't really give any design criteria other than saying it was armor (non-boob plate) for a fantasy game and had to include at least a cuirass.  Im notorious bad for designing non-historical armor since I became picky from my historical fencing days. (I did provide some good references such as Chris Lightfellow). For most artists, those designs are just uninteresting and plain, whereas on the battlefield practical trumped looks.

Well, in fantasy settings it's often more about looking cool because getting hit is bad. For example, when looking at movies with a fantasy setting, the protagonists rarely have much in the way of armor; they simply avoid getting hit. When they do get hit, it's either insignificant and they hardly notice, or it's terrible and creates drama, which fuels the story further. The enemies on the other hand often are properly armored, except perhaps the main villain, which has to also give off a sense of badassery, meaning that hiding behind armor would lessen their appeal. Lord of the Rings is a good example. The Fellowship was made up of mostly unarmored people. Chain mail was largely the extent of their protection, despite chain mail having never been intended to be worn on it's own without some other form of armor as well. The most "armor" any of them had was Gimli's helmet, or the shields carried (and hardly used) by Aragorn and Boromir. On the other hand, the orcs were totally decked out in armor, crude as it may have been. Thus the heroes seemed more amazing, as they overcame "formidable" foes with nary a scratch. Sauron was quite heavily armored, but the fact that he was huge compared to other people as well as the fact that his armor looked menacing enhanced his portrayed power (along with that giant mace that released burst of power when smashing into people). Villains, however, often get away with such because they get to have armor that looks sinister, unlike heroes.

tl;dr It's a lot less cool to realistically have armored heroes fight in realistic ways than it is for people that look awesome to kick ass.

I don't know, maybe I picked wrong games, movies and books, but I think that this trend is slowly dying, at least in western fantasy. Armor can be historical and cool, at least in later periods, but then you have to work on details and have some sources, which is something that artists generally dislike. Heh.

 I wonder if science will ever go so far that I'll be able to be a cute animu girl with cat ears.

Chain mail was largely the extent of their protection, despite chain mail having never been intended to be worn on it's own without some other form of armor as well.

The Lorica Hamata as well as basically any kind of Middle Ages armour until the 12th century completely and utterly disagree with that. Plate wasn't used until after the 13th Century, and Coat of plates (which started to appear late 12th century) was mostly seen as a supplement; both were used only by the richest men at arms too.

Mail hauberks were basically both the best and only armour for more than half of the Middle Ages, and they were actually pretty good. Not only they could stop any sword slash, even thrusts could somewhat be mitigated (as long as you didn't stand still and let the enemy aim and use all of its strength). They were simple to manufacture, even easier to maintain and relatively light while having extended coverage.

Even that was supplemented by hardened or treated leather, as well as a fair amount of cloth to pad. While there was little to be done about arrows (seeing as even heavier armors could be pierced by them as well), reducing the impact of other weapons was still critical. While a ttpical slash of a sword may not have a huge amount of force, a chop or thrust carry significant amounts of power that can damage internal organs and fracture bone. Without a way to reduce that impact, chain mail simply prevents an external injury, which is why other things were worn along with said mail.
To step back to my LotR example, it's hard to deny that Frodo getting jabbed in the abdomen with a polearm would produce no injury, despite the fact that all he wore was a plain cloth shirt and some mythril mail. While I'll wave of the bit about "he should have at least gotten a bruise," what's more strange is that he had no internal damage. Ribs are ridiculously easy to break, or at least fracture; a solid blow from someone's bare fist can do the trick. And, let's be honest, human (or hobbit, in this case) innards aren't exactly durable. Heck, trip and fall and you're likely to get a bruise, which is just internal bleeding near the surface. Get a piece of metal slammed into your side or, as in Frodo's case, jabbed into your abdomen and you're not going to be coming out of that all right as rain.
Why do I mention this? Because taking a blow without padding is a silly thing to do. Chain mail alone may prevent someone getting their gut slashed open or their chest getting impaled, but it won't absorb or displace enough of the shock to prevent internal damage. And really, even with padding and mail, a proper spear thrust will have enough force to put the unfortunate sod on the other end in a bad way, even if it doesn't outright skewer them.

tl;dr Chain mail doesn't prevent injuries from impact forces. No armor is perfect, and injuries happen regardless.
