Check out this totally Rad picture Mindsend took when I brought my "Lil-bro not of my blood" Praedius to get some sun. I totally think he thought the idea was bogus, but, like, it was so totally worth a try to get him on the waters.

Sorry for, like, the inconvenience... My customization tutorial was badly butchered a long time ago.. And Mindsend has gotten much better with, like, art and tutorials, cha... Sooooo, we, like, totally saved it to a notepad so we can toooootally redo it so it will be knarlly again...

But, like don't you like fret, cause we totally are putting up some Gelert adopts... Maybe when the tutorial is made, I will, like, have my own section.. That would Totally make my day.. Chaaaa..

From Idea to Reality
Constructing Your Pet

Everything has to start somewhere, there is no exception to the rules. And a good pet design has to start with one of two things:

Either a dream or by Chance.

Lets say you have the lab ray and your Blue Chia is turned into a Robot Draik. Robot Draiks are not all that common and you deside that your going to keep him or her that way, or you started using the lab ray in order to get a Robot Draik. No matter how it happened, you deside to give your draik a custom look.

But before you start slapping magnetic Decals onto his lookup picture, why not try and make your own robotic Draik, a Robodraik as the case may be.

The Base: Step 1



When you are working on designing your pet, you have to start off with an idea of the pose. Start off simple, since you are not sure what your new friend looks like. Draiks can be either Winged or Wingless. For this design I chose to let him have wings. I'm only showing one side, since I've desided that he will be symmetrical -- the same on both sides, so I didn't bother drawing his other legs or wings, which I would do if I was drawing a real picture of him and not Designing Robodraik from scratch.

We're gonna pump you up: Step 2



Here we have the flesh drawn over the skeleton in blue to show the changes occuring. The thin, wirey figure now has form as if skulpted up from the bones with clay. This part can be difficult if you do not look at how bodies are built. Do not make the figure to thin unless you want them to look starved. Try and keep it all in the medium.

Extreme Makeover: Step 3



There we go, looks like our Robodraik is starting to look a little more mechanical. I desided the wing position was wrong for the picture, so changed it as I saw fit. Remember! Nothing is set in stone, and you can change your picture as you desire.

This is the most flexable part of the robodraik's creation. You can really do anything with them!

Ok, Now what?: Step 4



Well, now Robodraik is, well, designed. That means your done now, right?

Wrong!

Now that he is drawn, you can start Coloring him and adding the markings you desire. Choose your media:Real media like markers, colored pencils or paints, or computer media like Ms Paint, Illustrator, Photoshop, or even Flash.

For this tutorial, I'm going to go easy on myself and use the computer program I am most comfortable with, Adobe Photoshop, since if I used real media I would have to scan repeatedly.

Oooh! Shiney!: Step 5




Pick a color for the base of Robodraik, then a light source. I picked a grey with a hint of blue in it, then put the light source over the head of the viewer. Even though it isn't shown here, you can put the color on the side. You then choose a lighter and darker shade of the color to shade (Or just use the burn and dodge tool like I usually do to make it smooth.)

Add the metalic skin over the dragon, trying to make it look as three dimensional as possible. Now we can add the details.

Mark up: Step 6



As you can see, Robodraik is no longer the top of the line model he used to be. Maybe he was part of a war long forgotten, still trying to follow orders no longer possible, abandoned in a deserted city of rubble for eons, always alert for invadors. Or maybe searching for others like him, having run away when he reached the status of AI, tired of being used by Dr. Sloth as a war machine, hiding in the jungles of Mystery Island.

The bluish marking may have been the crest of his squadron, or his identification number in an alien language. And the Rust is starting to over take his body. An immortal creature just waiting for his battery to die out or his body freeze solid.

And maybe some day a lone owner, looking for a pet but allergic for fur stumbles on him and polishes him up and gives him a new program, turning him into a loveable member of his or her family.

But he's still not finished!

Clean up on aisle 5, Bob: Step 7



This is where you make the final touches: Open his eyes, give some life to those metalic twigs called wings, maybe put a background or at least your name on it. Now he looks like he's alive and ticking, no longer just sitting there reserving energy. He's ready to prove that he may be a little rusty, but he's up for the challenge. And now, your pet is completed. You may change his design over time, but now you have a template of what his basic design is. You might upgrade his system, give him new legs or tail spike, a new external energy source with some cooling systems. Or you could make him more organic looking, a cyborg rather then a robot created to simulate realism.

Chaaaaaa. Incense... :3


Like, this will totally brighten up your gelerts page, dudes and dudettes...
Custom status:TRADE ONLY

And no, that does NOT mean you draw me a picture then demand that I make you one. o_O

No altering these adoptables unless
I say you can!
No taking customs that aren't
of your pet!
No claiming them as your own
Don't submit them in the Beauty Contest,
cause they tend to freeze *glare*

This little Dudette is "Karma", my little Aron buddy. She's, like, totally awesome. She was born at 10:44 AM NST on October 15, 2005. I, like, keep her with me and I am trying to teach her to surf... So far, its by keeping her in a floaty package and also by letting her, like feel the ocean breeze.

She is so TOTALLY not an adopt. She's, like, a lil-sis to me.
