Cursed Wombat CTS - Erica by ElsonWong Cursed Wombat CTS - Erica by ElsonWong
This is Erica - Ashworth's long lost sister (his fraternal twin actually).


Erica will play a key role in Ashworth's survival in the series despite the fact that you don't physically see her in the story a lot. Without her, there is no reason for Ashworth to live.


Also, making a character turnaround sheet, complete with character expressions on the side panel, is extremely handy to have on your side before starting out on drawing your ambitious graphic novel or comic project.


Always be ready to feel confident about the characters you're going to be drawing in the story (especially the protagonist, antagonist and other main characters important to the story) otherwise you'll slow down the process and lack motivation to move on when you're stuck on drawing a particular panel involving your characters.


So bear in mind this - make a set of character turnaround sheets before embarking on your next graphic novel/comic project. There is no rush to get straight into the meat of the project without some preparation firsthand. *thumbs up*

I'm a big fan of your draws expecially in Grand Hunter. I just want to know a little bit about how you draw. On a paper? a tablettes?

Ack, I had thought that I had sent a comment for this a long time ago, but for some reason, it didn't send? Weird.

Basically, this is a big leap forward in your understanding of character proportions. However, seeing as the backview is essentially an altered mirrored frontview (no guilt in that~), there's something that you forgot to do. The lower half of the back looks fine, but you forgot to alter the top half of the back. It looks like you essentially erased the nipples and didn't do any altercation beyond that. She needs less boobie back. And more shoulder blades! Be sure to keep that in mind for the future. :)

Still, I love her design and backstory. Keep up the good work. \o/

Not only that, but her kneecaps are on the back of her legs as well as the front.

Ah yeah, that too!

Just for future reference, you replied to my comment, which means it'll show up in my DevWatch only, not Elson's. If you're intending on giving future critique on a deviation, comment on the deviation directly so that the artist will receive it. :)

Yes it did send through, it's just that my reply didn't go through! Bugger! X_X;;

Anyways thanks for your feedback as always HappyAggro. :D

So that means the back should have had a V shape rather than an upside-down U shape? I'll have to keep that in mind in future!

Anyways just between you and me... ;) [link]

Hahahah, this sorta thing happens.

In a sense, yes. Keep back references for humans in mind and it'll be easy to figure out from there. [link]

Ahhhh, the new site! Looks good so far!

Oh, wow! You're doing a great job in improving your anatomy work, this is definitely noticable!

However, I noticed what you did with the back view. It's mirrored from the front~ There's nothing wrong with that and it works for this sorta thing, however, you forgot an important detail...

You forgot to alter her upper back! The breast sides are still there on the back and she doesn't appear to have shoulder blades. I get why you might forget stuff like that, backs are an interesting thing to work with...my weakness with that sort of thing appears to be feet. You did well with those though for this one!

This is very good! I like her overall design, especially the pallet, it gives off this innocence/holy vibe.

I don't know about you but maybe you should put a mature tag on, just to play safe. You know those people. >_>

She's very much alive Trash-meta, she is being held captive by someone that both Ashworth and Erica dread - though there's a slight twist to that sentiment. The person they don't like is their father... Once benevolent but now changed his ways for the obsession of science.

Spot on. She is being used for research - perhaps he body is being utilised for something...?

Kinda sickening to think of how parents are conducting experiments upon their children like that.

I like a lot this design Elson! Her poses and expressions are very attractive. Giving her a darker skin on the arms is a great idea, because she seems to wear gloves, which is an elegant touch from my point of view!

You've improved in anatomy! Cool! ^^ But keep improving the breasts. If you draw the nipples too much down it seems that the breasts are a bit like sagging breasts... I don't really know if is the correct expression cos' is a google translation! XXD

Still is pending my reply to you by email! X_X;;

ElsonWong Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks Isabel! :) And as for the nipples - I think they look alright! = ) I actually didn't draw a perfect oval on each because it didn't look rustic enough for a native/nature girl type. :D Imperfections can be beautiful too, just like her moles/birthmarks on the right cheek and right-side butt cheek. 8-)

Oh and don't worry about the replies - please take your time, it is already kind of you to write back to me from time to time - and I hope you're doing well! :hug:

Why thank you so kindly Anis! You're killer with your anthro-cartoon styles, actually make it sexy-anthro styles. XXD

I still love this drawing you did - [link] An almost perfect balance of colours, posing and expression. ^_^

So yeah having you tell me that I'm improved on my anthro style means a lot to me! And you like the design too which is a bonus! Thank you! :hug:

Her clothes design is something that was influences from what a native/nature girl would wear. The colours green and brown is 'earthy' to match the overall design. ^_~

Still i'm impressed that tons of people likes that drawing o_0... more than my DD... that doesn't make sense!! XD but I'm glad that you like it so much =D
I love how you are developing your anthro style :heart: It looks so cool! :love: I want to see soon a full reference from Fei... and Ash!!

Lol! I'd love to see how you draw Fei this time round - but I think you should wait until I've drawn him showing more perspectives to get a better idea of how he really looks like. ;)

Thanks for letting me know how you are enjoying my new and improved anthro-cartoon style - it is satisfying to know that I'm making progress! :hug:

I'm liking that she'll be playing an important, supportive role--the fact that her interactions with Ash happened in the past is an excellent use of bridging the gap between Backstory and 'Real Time' Character Interaction.
Nice going there!

Perfectly explained there Banter - that is how she'll be ultimately portrayed in the story. She's not a Plot A or B, she's a Plot Z when talking about narrative perspectives.

What Fruitso said. =P
The 1st thing that came to my mind when I saw the top poses was "nipples!". XD
One thing that bothers me a bit is that you made pupils too small.

Are you planning to put Turnaground Sheets for all characters than? =)
