Miyu's parents by BlackBy Miyu's parents by BlackBy

:bulletblue: tumblr post: [link]

I tried to draw Miyu's parents. This pic was taken when Miyu was 17. I have a headcanon but I'm not sure about all the details so I don't tell you for now.

This is a colored sketch, I'm happy with the quality anyway. Fay, Katt, Bill and Falco's parents are coming soon.

Fox's parents:

Wouhou! C'est cool tout çà! Voir les parents des personnages de Starfox autres que Fox, c'est une bonne idée.

J'aime bien le caractère qui se dégage des parents de Miyu. Le père semble sérieux, menant parfois la vie dure, mais toujours bienveillant (la force tranquille). Quant à la mère, on dirait que Miyu est son portrait craché quand elle avait son âge (j'adore le grain de beauté près de l’œil et la boucle d'oreille comme Miyu) J'aime bien aussi la "barbe" du père, très typique des lynx. Je trouve juste dommage que les yeux du père ne se voient pas super bien. Ou peut-être est-ce moi?

Ma seule critique vient de la texture. Est-ce la même que tu as réutilisé en la copiant plusieurs fois ou avait-elle déjà cet aspect d'échiquier? En tout cas, cet apparence en cases gêne la vision, surtout au premier plan où, non seulement cela ne se marie guère avec la fourrure, mais aussi à cet endroit une texture a tendance à tout aplatir.

Mais cela reste une très bonne illustration de ta part! Tu as encore fait des merveilles!

YES! After such a long time we, the good people of dA, are treated with a true genuine BlackBy, so to speak. Pleased as always, it will be my good pleasure to write a rather positive and always honest critique about "Miyu's Parents".

Miyu is a tomboy to start with, and BlackBy has been able to capture that attitude. In fact, she captured it so well that it's the first thing that attracts the eye when looking at the artwork in general. Miyu's big smile, her tough appearel (note the ripped, sluggish pants) and her "center of attention" pose make her indeed the center of the attention.

Second, it is clear that BlackBy thought about how to portray Miyu's parents. Nothing is known about them, so she literally had to create them herself. She made a very good decision on how to do so, which is to be seen in the personalities she gave them.
The father looks to me like the "strong and silent" type; muscular, though far to wise to be a brainless macho. The patterns on the fur of his head give him the looks of a warrior, while his overall appearence make him look like a man who's known the difficulties of life. The kind, blue eyes complete the picture of him being a good father.
Miyu clearly is a child of her mother, so to speak; she looks like her both in looks and attitude. The mother isn't a very girly type either for she has the appearel of a strong woman, yet she is not a tomboy like her daughter. At least, that's what I make of it.

As a conclution: if we would combine both the father and the mother, as created by BlackBy, the only logical outcome would be Miyu. Which means that BlackBy did a bang-up job on this particular subject. The highest points for vision and originality, and good points for technique and impact; I've seen what BlackBy is capable of and this artwork is not the maximum of her skills (probably by her own choice).

Still, it is wonderful and I'm very impressed. As usual, of course.

J'aimerais beaucoup revoir Miyu (et Fay) dans un jeu recent. Bien que Starfox 2 n'a jamais été officiellement relaché, elle pourrait être réintroduite comme un tout nouveau personnage dans un nouveau jeu (StarFox Wii U peut-être?), avec quellques vagues références au fait que ce n'est pas sa première aventure avec l'équipe. Une pilote exceptionnelle qui après sa première mission, reviens traumatisée ou quelque chose du genre LOL !

I'm glad you like it, It was fun to design Miyu's parents. Does it anything you want to change about them ? I'm just asking by curiosity :).

I don't think I would change anything. At first I thought maybe change the direction Miyu's father was looking so it was more like the other two, but now that I look at it again, your way is better :) It adds to his masculine appearance in a way that I can't really explain, and you did a good job with it!

And Miyu's facial expression is priceless! It comes across as something that fits her personality so well!

Pfiou tant mieux! Les persos de cette série de jeu sont si mal fait (selon mon opinion) qu'à chaque fois que j'en dessine un, ou que je crée un OC je le ressens comme si je devais sauver la franchise :XD:.
Enfin, ça motive les fans à faire du contenu, ça c'est sûr.

So, be patient, and draw.

:) I understand.

Mademoiselle, sometimes, we have to agree that, life is not perfect.

And I know...I know that the "imperfect" is our special.
It makes us and everything unique.

Don't pay much attention at characters, but the other things.
Like background, outfit...etc.

Believe me, perfect or not perfect, it's still your art.
It's still your work after all.

True artist draw for fun, and joy. Not the fame of the world.

I never had any interest in glory because even if I have a low self-estim, I don't consider that be famous means that you're automatically a good artist (look at all the celebrities who don't deserve their fame). So I'm not feeling better to be popular. I don't understand why the opinion of unknown people should affect my way to have fun either.
Besides I really fear celebrity; people are more demanding or act differently with you. You can be used, stalked or hated because some people are waiting too much from you. I really appreciate to be quiet and alone, I also prefer to have a small amount of people arround me so I can really be there for them. So that can seem odd or unambitious (which I'm not), but I really hope I will never be (too) famous :XD:.

I appreciate that people like my work, but only because we can share something together and I can make them happy with a fanart of their favourite character or a simple piece of beauty that brings feelings. But nobody should forget that an artist must draw for himself before anything, otherwise he loses his motivation.

But I really try to be less perfectionist, I must say I ADORE messy styles, when you can still see the brushes, the great life of the artist's hand. I really enjoying work like that myself. I never liked perfect smooth paintings or photorealism, This is beautiful and the artist is talented, but this is a little boring to me. I'm pretty satisfied with my actually style, I just need to learn a bit more :meow:.

Mademoiselle, first, I'd like to say. :iconisayplz:
You are not like any artist I met before.
You have the clear soul, and a good spirit.
That makes you and your arts, loved by all.

Mademoiselle, now if you have time to read these words, I hope you won't mind if my comment on your work is so long, and boring. :)

Not like you, I'm just an amateur artist. I know that.
And I know my arts are just pieces of crap.
But, I don't care.
I don't care what they think or what they commented.

All I want to do is...draw.

Although the life is so hard and so stupid.
But I won't let that bother me.
I just draw.
Draw, draw, draw and draw.

I respect the audiences in my arts.
While I know they wouldn't respect me nor my arts.
But I still draw.

Popular or not, it's not our fault.
It is just a ordinary thing of this life.

Have you ever met a war veteran?
They call them heroes, but deep in their heart, they don't want it.
And all they want to say is "I just do my job, and I don't like it."

Nobody want to be a hero or famous.
People just think they are.

Mademoiselle, I have readed all the comments for your work.
I found something.
People love your work.
Nice or short comments, they are lovely comments for the lovely arts of the lovely artist.

:smoking:

Be used, stalked or hated by some bad guys...that is not our fault.
Their fault.
And they should feel ashamed for what they have done to the good people.



Keep drawing, mademoiselle.
And live well.
You will find and have the special feelings which you never have. :hug:

Great, great work... They look so official and real.

I dunno what I like more about her parents, her mother's outfit or the way you portrayed the father without making him look too feminine, like many felines ( at least in my eyes ). I almost didn't notice the scar on his chin, a nice touch. :3

Hmm, today I decided to go through my favorites again. Seeing this, it reminded me what I wanted to say after my first comment. It's been bothering me, and it's probably just a minor thing, but when I said "without making him too feminine", I felt that was insulting and, naive sounding ( there's nothing wrong with looking feminine or not ).

Again, fantastic and inspiring work. :meow:
