Urbana at Felisa by tsubibo Urbana at Felisa by tsubibo
i wanted to see how 2 of my supposedly-philippine-colonial-period-designs wud match:

Felisa (left) -- [link]
Seņora Urbana (right) -- [link]

changed some bits, added more detail

this is my take of the characters in the book: 'Pagsusulatan Nang Dalauang Binibini Na Si Urbana at Felisa' by Fr. Modesto Castro. i really want to make a story out of these two characters i made. so far i came up with the names, and what they basically do. instead of sending letters to talk about manners and conduct (which what the book is about, actually), they'll be sending info to each other that they can use to infiltrate the higher-ups, not to topple the government but to catch (or kill) those who are waaaay too corrupt. felisa will spy the ranks of soldiers while urbana will do the same to the gobernador heneral (which is her father... that gets killed later on :P) and his subordinates. still have to do more research on that :XD:

perspective got messed up *points at felisa's right arm* practice! practice! :D

: mechanical pencil : tablet : painter 9 : photoshop 6

please full view for better image quality

love the colors and the poses. they remind me of utena and anthy from revolutionary girl utena (but your characters are still vastly different, don't worry). ^^ i wonder if you're going to give them a romantic spin. :P hehehe. great work!

wow. what an interesting take on these two characters. parang mejo ro inspired, like a new wallpaper for a new class. i actually enjoyed reading some excerpts of the classic. it's kinda interesting how they spell words back then.
tsubibo Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
onga e, full of vowels dati :XD: naging trademark na ata ng RO ang plain colored backgrounds :XD: yep, designs were kinda RO-inspired :D

oooh nice colors, the tonal values are nicely developed :heart:
I think there's something wrong with urbana's sword hand? it looks like she slipped the foil between her knuckles rather than grasping it? (ack! baka ako lang yun) and with that pose felisa should be showing a lot more back
tsubibo Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
(baligtad ung names) ^^; i knew it! ..but i just can't pinpoint what exactly is wrong with felisa's sword arm :XD: it also looked like she only had her hand over the handle... i dunno. anyway thanks for pointing that out :D urbana on the other hand... well... weird lng talga ako gumuhit ng poses hehehehe :XD:

salamat salamat! :D

Oh, I thought you were doing a Filipino theme character studies for Ragnarok. I am sorry to say that the style is way too similar. Maybe you can do something about Felisa's front piece. That's what the dominantly ragnarok-ish. (Forgive me for the pricky comment, but the character design is too good to waste. -______-;)

Anyway, as far as the concept goes, this two character rocks! I love girl power, and I like it even more that you portray it to a filipina character. Wish to see more of the concept and the story. Good work. ^_^
tsubibo Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
i think it's the yellow edges on her front piece that makes it too ragnarok-ish. m not really sure which part exactly u are pertaining to but that's common in ragnarok designs :D i'm actually aiming for a rpg-ish design, so it's a gud thing if people see it as ragnarok-ish but if it seems too much, i just might step back a little with the design and maybe alter them in the future :D

thanks a lot for the crit! :D
