Yoku Ho Reff Sheet by Beng91 Yoku Ho Reff Sheet by Beng91
With this The Team for #PartsWar is complete, I think

It took me awhile but I think I got a little closer to OG's style, I redrew him 3 times, by the time I got to the AT I was to damn lazy.
I decided to go with cell shading this time instead of the usual, still have both in the psd file tough

Name: Yoku Ho(first name Ho)
Age: 18
Height: 6' about (182 cm)
Team: Blue Phoenix
Road: Sun road(his own road)
Origin of road: Flam, with a little wing road on the side.
Personality: Smart, genius, talented and has a god complex, not that he doesn't know about it, he just doesn't hide it. Although pretty good on the technical side, he was never good socially; never knew what he should say or when to say it. Amazed by how people act the only thing he could understand were manga, and anime characters, this influenced heavily the way he talks to people. Even with his god complex he understands that morals, trust, and honer should rise above all, and that they should also be overlooked sometimes times(His source of wisdom comes from manga rather than life experience)
Other: Family slightly above average, even still he has a job delivering mail. His dream is to become an AT designer, he uses his daily root to practice and test using his AT designs, usually tacking the longer roads.
Wears a custom made AT.

Would like to add, The Sun Road, is an upgrade and advanced version of the Flame Road. Sun Road. Also known as Solar or Flare Road, it has flames that have a higher temperature and deadly degree of burning percentage than the Flame Road.
My interpretation, and a Road, one of my OCs ride.

Interesting Youssef noted that as well
The way I see it, it's not really incompatible, because his hair is combed to the right(my right) sort of like a verzachi, so naturally you'd have more hair showing on one side than the other, it's not that the hair from the left is short it's that the hair from the right along with the rest of the head are all joined together, if you'd notice the longer hair strands are the ones from the center, and they're all combed to the right.
but you are right, now that I look at it the left side is slightly shorter, maybe I lost some of the strands detail when I played with the levels.

You liked Air gear I take it? Its cool that your designing your own characters. I've been meaning to do the same, but I fear lacking the skills to illustrate them properly and loosing vision of how I see them. Cool ATs by the way :P

Yes very, I actually never realized how much until I was practicing OG's style, by going through the manga chapters, and just forgot what I was doing and kept reading on(I would later stop myself and get back to drawing practice).
Ogure Ito's style is one of my most beloved styles, especially the dynamic poses, I sometimes just stop and stair.
It would be a great honer if your Highness would join my team(that is if you like Air Gear) it would give you a nice motive to make that OC you seam to want.

XD. I was never too into AG. I watched the anime and felt it was not only incomplete but full of fan service and cliche's. The manga is probably much better and is what your referring to (though I haven't read it v_v;). I have OCs from a story I've been making for a about a year, but I've never put them down on paper. Theres something I want to improve upon, which is not just being able to achieve a very technically detailed image, but something that has more flow and feeling to it that is less detailed and still looks good. That is sort of the level I want to reach, but I don't know how I'm going to get there.

It seams that ~Naota93 took care of the Air Gear part

I feel you on the wanting to improve before drawing your OC, The whole reason I started drawing is to improve at illustrating my ideas, the thing is keeping it to yourself wont get you much. I find it simpler when I hae a base to start with.
My advise is to draw an OC and even color him, and see how close you can get, at least that way when you try again you'll have something to compare with, you can then asses how longer it would tack.
For me I gave up on the idea of creating a manga for now, simply because just aiming at that is to vague, the way I see it if I can draw exactly what I imagine in my head I can pretty much do anything, so I set that as my goal.
What's your ultimate goal

My ultimate goal is to illustrate a story in the form of either a manga or an animated movie. I know both are out of reach so I'm trying to improve my skills as an artist to accomplish that goal at some point. I may begin to put down the OCs down on paper and see how that works out. Another one of my big obstacles currently is that I really have no idea how to draw environments. So I'm tackling that as well.

I see so you're using a DeVincian approach; trying to learn everything at once by learning a little bit every day in a different field instead of mastering on part than moving on to another. This tacks a very long time, but I like it. The fruits of your labor wont show up for along time, so don't get discouraged, when they do show up you'll find yourself in completely new level.

Yea man funding toward the anime stop because it wasn't getting enough attention but the manga is better and the anime was always a little different from the manga any way, kinda like what the creator of gantz did even though that ending sucked.
But if you wanna check out air gear heres the link to the manga i read it from [link] and its worth the read but if you want to continue where the anime left here it is [link]
