cross by aozorize cross by aozorize
EDIT2: Sorry for the repost but decided to tweak the red for humanity's sake and added a border to solidify it. Tell me if it still BURNS haha and Ill tone it down again

---------------------

while cleaning out my room I found some old artwork and character studies from about a year ago. I found one design I still kinda liked, so I scanned it in and painted over it. It was originally an “original design” for my archbishop on ragnarok online. I liked the idea of priests in heavy armor smiting people with their staffs. I also turned his orc hero helm into a dead bird, I guess.

Now that I look at it its sort of a generic fantasy crusader but…whatever lol.

Looks great. I definitely like the muted red better. The last red was a bit overwhelming. Thank you for posting.

Dude I just got back into RO and was jsut thinkin about drawing my new character. But damn this looks really nice - though you're right, I could do without the border; your character designs are always 10 steps ahead my goodness <3

Ah, crusader, Ive never tried that one (for some reason Im not much of a tank class guy).

I had archbishop, warlock, gunslinger, gypsy, professor. Battle professor is soooo much fun lol. But so much trouble cause without soul link you cant kill shit.

Me either @_@ I just like having really fast movement speed- so I'm the one with the worst stats for my class.

Oh I never tried Sage! @0@ I only have tried wiz recently and damn it's ridiculous how fast you can level with them in comparison to the melee classes.
I haven't played for about 2 years? So at first I didn't quite recognize the 3rd classes. But it makes coming back pretty fun with all these new classes, cities and headgear.

yea mage classes tend to level very quickly (since they kill really quickly). From what I remember, high wiz/warlock becomes incredibly dex-dependent later though. Without Blessing I cant hit instant-cast and its amazing what shit a few more seconds of cast time can get you in lol. I haven't played in a while either ever since renewal, no idea whats going on with updates and such. My old gaming group wants to restart again though so I might fire RO back up again at some point. If so you should tag along :)

Yeah I'm really low level with absolutely no dex so when my friend and I are trying to mob, I'll cast storm gust then we both go get water, come back, and it's still casting. V_V
Oh that'd be awesome! Only I'm pretty sure I'll be sticking to TalonRO since we've been on there for about a week or so already~ thanks anyway! Let me know if you end up joining this server, but hey if not, enjoy that nostalgia all the same >;)

Absolutely stunning~ It looks a lot better on the eyes with the red being desaturated. *v* and the black bars were a nice choice as well.

ohh if I recall, you did another sketch + paint of this archbishop design and posted it on your tumblr a while back? Or maybe I'm wrong but *H* this is awesome! He really gives off the templar/~holy knight~ vibe with all that heavy armour and the idea of him bashing people's faces in with a staff like that is kind of...gratifying LOL

Yea I did! Cool that you remember. That iteration of the design was pretty much the same as this one, except his helm still looked like the original helm design.

This is seriously badass. I honestly hated both of the archbishop designs in RO (even the female one made me sad lol) so this is a much MUCH better take. I wound up redesigning genetic too so I understand your frustrations lol.

The firetruck red is BLINDING but comes off pretty effectively with your design.

thanks, and yea all the 3rd job classes looked pretty crappy imo. A lot of the 3rd job classes also seemed to not really fit with the previous designs...e.g mechanics were passable but so out of place. I think a spare few of them had potential as cool designs, but the art style also interfered with that potential...
Reply
:iconcursedreams:
cursedreams Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2012
It really didn't help that they switched artists from trans to third class so all of the third classes have like...zero emotion to them. I totally agree they had no coherency with each other. I love sniper and that was my main and then out comes ranger which was..just..not nearly as elegant a design. I loved wanderer as a class (before they nerfed it into the ground) but you look at a gypsy and it's like 'that..came from that?'

I haven't griped about Ragnarok in like six months. Thank you for the opportunity XDD

yea the art was really stiff and plastic-looking. Dunno why they didnt just get the old guy to keep designing...apparently hes working on new classes for gunslinger and star glad though? Then again its been two years and I havent seen those finalized yet.

and heh Im glad I could gripe about it with you too.

Looks awesome. Actually I didn't think of bird wings when I first saw it, I thought it was insect wings because they were translucent-ish. Either way, good job :)

hmm thats actually a cooler concept, insect wings. I'll definitely keep that in mind, since I tend to tweak and redesign designs often.

Glad to be of help. You could also incorporate veins or sinew (that you're really good at haha) or those metallic iridescent colours you often see on beetle shells and wings...anyway doesn't listen to me your head is always full of better ideas :)

That red burns my eyes, but I must say it makes a strange but effective results in your picture makes it look very original detail and quality of the armor is amazing, and the feathers on his head don´t belong to a bird... belongs to an ostrich!
