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.

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.

Reminds me of my brother, who use to have his eyes closed when he was in a picture. Nice work BTW.

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!

I'm glad to hear it, Miyu's expression was one of the most important part of the drawing I think. Thank you again for your comments !

T'inquiète pas, ton dessin est bien fait :rose:.

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.
[chez Nintendo] "J'ai une idée ! On va tellement appauvrir une de nos meilleure franchise que ce sont les fans qui fourniront les idées qu'on pourra chipper ensuite !"
P.S.: Merchi pour la fleur ^.^ !
