Detective Jarno by VulnePro Detective Jarno by VulnePro
And here’s Louander’s partner Maclin Jarno, the primary central character of Theos Ke Basilea. He will be embroiled in the momentum of events that are far greater than he, events and changes kicked off in Theos Ke Polemos. Indus, like Polemos is caught in the winds of massive change and he and his fellow I.P.I.O. officers begin to see the strangeness though the caseload that begins to cross their desks. These guys end up investigating the Lovecraftien elements that creep into the story. All the I.P.I.O. officers have Taedus use systems to assist them in their duties, that means they all have a taedus sendai combat mecha partnered with them, the work is too dangerous otherwise. Unlike FOILs which are large combat sendai frames piloted by a human inside, taedai are actually smaller than humans and psychically bonded with the partner. Maclin is a character with many secrets and mysterious ties to another character in the Theos arc.

Very interesting pair of characters you've got here. You've even given us quite a bit of info about them too. Nice cel-shading work!

Thank you kindly :) There will be more character art in the future, I have a lot planned, only time to sort out getting to it all.

Awesome Cgi work. While being simple color wise, the shading is still deliciously complex. Also, the details on the clothing itself is what makes the picture come together. (I have a weakness for clothing design (charachters in general), none of my clothes look like they could actually be worn.)

When you draw charachter concepts for the animation projects, do you end up drawing sheets filled with various poses? Or is this one concept usually enough to go off of for the animators?

Hey man :) Good to see you here :D This is just more or less a promo style pin up deal. For animation spec sheets it would have to be front, back and various head shots. I have a lot of that stuff coming too, A LOT. Glad you dig it, these two characters (previous post chara) will appear again, no question :) I just got a freelance gig in the can that was eating a lot of time so I'll be posting again soon here. Thanks for the good words :)

No problem mate. I just wanted you to know that you did not loose a fan. :3

Do you have any interoir shots floating around? I've seen some external shots around the web, but not yet any scenes from the insides of buildings.

I have had a few older ones but nothing new, there will be a lot of that in the future and possibly other artists doing that stuff as well. I've been uber busy with freelance but things are smoothing out so I can balance freelance with this stuff. There will be a lot coming, a lot. Keep peeping scraps too as there's a lot of props and such in there.

Yeah, I'll keep an eye on your scraps.

So, can you not post your freelance stuff online? Becuase by 'limiting' the art in your gallery to the Theos universe, you are only showing us half of your art. (or less :p )

Some freelance has been posted in there actually, Dreamwave Transformers, Palladium, The DJ Acucrack CD cover. The stuff I'm doing now I can't post yet and a few aren't worth posting, just work for hire. I will post stuff when I can though :) There's also some projects in Non Disclosure Agreement territory so I can't post anything from those.

Ah, the dreaded NDA. Understandable...but still a shame.

In any case, I shot you an email, you should have it by now. That will be the place you can contact me with information on the 'collab' projects.
Oh, post a comment on the Dymetheos Strider mech when you have a passing moment to spare, I'm interested in what you'll think of it. (it's my latest deviation)

This ones really good too! I like the simple cell shaded style, and the character himself looks quite interesting. I really enjoy your attention to clothing/uniform details. :)

Somehow, he reminds me of Matt Damon; he seems to have that good boy look with an ample dash of roguishness.

VulnePro Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2006  Professional Filmographer
Yeah this pic I suppose he does have that kind of look but he's prob going to look less so in future illustrations. Actually I had Tony Leung in mind to adujt his facial expresions toward. He won't look like Leung but I always thought that actor had a deep thought, almost soulful face, kinda like there was always more going on under the surface. That's what this character is like. You're observation is great for this illo though, quite :)

What do yuo mean that the sendai are 'physically' bonded with their partners?
Reply
:iconvulnepro:
VulnePro Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2006  Professional Filmographer
Doh! That's a word doc typo, it was supposed to be psychically bonded. Glad you caught that, gonna fix it now :) So no the sendai are not physically connected to them, it’s a mental bonding of sorts. The human user can tap into the sendai’s optic and neural data stream.

:iconvulnepro:
VulnePro Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2006  Professional Filmographer
My thanks :) Yeah it has an officer kinda vibe but is really a more civilian garb. Both characters are private eyes, as the postings stated, so they are plain clothes :) I love doing cloth designs and character stuff just as much as the mechanical stuff.

Thanks a lot man. Yeah I utterly enjoy exploring design in every possible aspect of what I draw, right down to things like shoes. This whole thing has a little art deco vibe but then I guess much of the material from this project does :)
