The Prince by Zombiesmile The Prince by Zombiesmile
I suppose it's tactically not the best move to introduce the antagonist first, but when I was drawing these (I have 2 more) I sensed Caspar would get the least attention, so I decided to post him first after all.

This was originally something I wanted to do for the Dacademy's summer project, but being jobless got in the way, and finishing commissions became a priority as a result.

All ideas revolving around this particular story and its characters is still incomplete, and I plan on using the exercise to flesh things out better.

Also, :iconchueyelle: plays a major part in how this was born, even if what will be posted by me has derived greatly from the original ideas we had together.

As for the art, this tiny series is something I am very proud of (for once), and I've been excited to finally share. Hope you enjoy. :heart:

Reminds me a lot of Jeoffrey from Game of Thrones combined with Prince Zuko from the Avatar Series due to the scar. Cools.

heh, at that age his mother is the regent still and makes the decisions as the queen. but I imagine his life to be spoiled and rather carefree. XD and...maybe paranoid about people trying to backstab you...

this kid reminds me of the, as i call him, "royal brat" from Game of Thrones.

that aside, i like your style and think you portrayed this spoiled lil' mama's boy very well. ^_^ but i have this incredible urge to smack him though ... dont know why ...

Despite his negative personality, I still think he is cool. I like the edging on the clothing and how his clothes seem to make his normal hairstyle exotic.

I personally don't like characters with insanely weird or unrealistic hairstyles (like final fantasy) and find that a lot of other factors make a look interesting. :3

Aaah, I can't get enough of this guy! I love his weapon and his outfit especially.
I love the stories and characters of this series, but him especially. :> I'm interested in his momma as well.
Are you planning to elaborate further with it?

Eventually, yes. :'D I have to decide 100% on a design for his mum, but a rough look is set.
there's a handful of other minor characters too I'd like to present eventually.

I particularly like how you bypassed seemingly effortlessly the usual cliches about sociopathic brats.

I am glad you think so! hum, what would you consider a cliche? Just curious. I didn't think too much of other characters while creating him, so it would be interesting to hear.

hm... no scar over the eye, no colours in common, no personality traits, not the same age, no physical built, socially in a different situation. HMMMM.

I guess the only thing they have in common is having a penis.

Yes but he has a scar in the face. I saw the face and it reminds me on him. It's only a personal feeling, no need to be so rude.

Zombiesmile Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010  Professional
If that's your basis for comparison, Luffy from one piece, Scar from FMA, HARRY POTTER and Kenshin all look like Prince Zuko to you, huh?

Perhaps you should know that most artists feel insulted when their art is being compared to a popular series. You are implying they have no creativity of their own.

:iconkurophoenix90:
kurophoenix90 Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010
No they don't. But the expression in their faces seem to be similar for me. Like I said, it's my personal opinion. Also I only said that he reminds me on him, not that they look the same or something else.

It souldn't be a critic. It came to my mind when I saw it and I said it. Nothing more. And when you don't think so it's okay. But you needn't to feel attacked by my comment. I think your art is great, otherwise I never had put you to my deviantwatch.

No f*kin' way!
I have a character like him, prince Arthur, of the kingdom of Ashidu, unlike him, Arthur is shy and remarkably cowardly, and instead an antagonist is a partner of the princess, he looks like him just for the haircut and the clothing
