Green of Tourmaline- Duel IIDX by RockStarRoku Green of Tourmaline- Duel IIDX by RockStarRoku
The full title should be

"Colors (IIDX edit)- Green of Tourmaline- Duel"

but that definitely didn't fit. XD

I'm uploading him because I'm tired of messing with him, definitely. @_@ It's been hours on and off, and I'm just tweaking stupid shit now. So he's finished. xD

First of the influx of IIDX art you'll probably be seeing from me, as I'm obsessed with Goli's DJ characters <3

Critique me, rawr! My mom told me to shove his tongue back in his mouth because it made him look feminine, then I showed her Duel's official art, and she was like "Oh. Look at his tongue!"

Yeah, Duel's tongue is everywhere. xD That sounds horrible ._.

Anyway, enjoy, and leave me some comments to look at when I get back! :heart:

Oh, haha. Colors from DDR, the lyrics are something like this:

"Red with a twist, Orange of the fire, Green of tourmaline, Yellow Mellow, Hello hello"

And then some emo crap about being the color of blue while thinking of you, whoever you is. xD

OH SNAP, I FORGOT ABOUT ORANGE. W/E I don't care that much, wtf, haha.

And that sucks to hear. D: I know someone that used to be really good and got hit by a car (not seriiiious, but it was enough to fuxxor his back), so he's struggling to play now.

Weeelll... Late to comment, as always. XD Doesn't change the fact that I think this looks really awesome. Especially his skin.

...I'm hypnotized by his skin. I hope there was nothing else I was going to say, because now I've completely forgotten what it could have been. XD

Ok, all Nix jokes aside, because you know I can't keep them in, this piece is STILL badass. I like it, a lot. And I still think Tony should be Duel. XD

I'm gonna end this now, before I start talking about Nix. XD

This.. yes, I am commenting again..., reminds me of the DJ TAKA ADVISORY SYSTEM image that you might randomly see around my webcam...

Let's see who goes where!!

yellow - Yuz (With DistorteD! THAT EVIL.. D: )
red- Tekka / Licht
blue - Siren, but he's more of a purple/Killer
orange- Daruma and Tsugaru please! XD;;


*Points at MAYA chara* Oh, do I win! XD;;
j/k

hmm... to make it funny, add GOLD in there and draw an ultra sexy hihumi! XD

I think you might've made a mistake... here's what I came up with.

Yellow - Nix, because of his hair
Red - Nix, because of his shirt
Blue - Nix, because of parts of his hat
Orange - Nix, because he's just that damn badass

There. I fixed it for you. XD

ho-kay, so here's my attempt at being helpful...


First things first, in spite of any ripping apart I may do, I think it looks great. :D The shading you've got looks wonderful, but it's a bit light - using darker tones or throwing in bluer tones rather than just variants of base color would really help to bring out the edges and the roundness to stuff. Another thing that would help give an appearance of roundness and tri-dimensionality is added some soft shadows to the very edges, like the tops of his shoulders and the outside of his arms, to help give the appearance of it curving away from view. Aside from that, the placement of the shading you've got now, like the clavicles and nose and stuff, looks great. The eyes looks pretty good, but you may want to have at least some bit of black along the top and bottom to show the existence of lashes; it doesn't have to be really thick, just enough to give a clearer outline.

The hair looks pretty good too, but it doesn't have a whole lot of depth, same for the green bandanna. They just look a little flat next to the face and the blue bandanna, which both have depth and curvature given to them by the shading and highlights you've got. The details on the chain are excellent, but it looks a little off because it's not casting any sort of shadow on the skin and shirt beneath it.

Aside from all that though, I love the detail I just mentioned on the chain, the intricacies of the links and the little shines on it look wonderful. Also, the design on the shirt turned out nicely (not that I have any idea about who this is or what they should look like) and the folds and their shadows look great. His facial expression is awesome, and I love the look of his eyes being in shadows like that - it helps him look more insolent.

Anyway, I love it, but you said to critique, so I tried to come up with everything I could think of that might be helpful while trying to not sound like a heinous bitch, lol.

Also, that mouth is awesome and cute and adorably saucy. :D

Looks cool, for a person who isnt a crackwhore... if you'reinto that, whichIM NOT!

So why doese he waste his time with the hat bandana combo, genetalia on his forehead?

LOL, Duel could SO be a crackwhore. xD

It's two bandannas, you dickbag xD And it's not possible to do that combo, either. Believe me. I grabbed bandannas and tried for hours. Hours. I don't know, it must take him a really long time to do it, though. I've failed every attempt. xD

I really am. Also, I think my PS2 ate the beatmania disc. xD Like, now it won't load data that's there, and it freezes during my favorite 5key song, and it also freezes after you beat game mode xD

Hey man, let's import one and practice. It's really not as hard as I thought it was at first. xD

Thank you for the fave! <3<3<3

RockStarRoku Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2007
Yeah, it freezes on EVERYTHING, so no hope there. xD

D: One of the guys I met at AZ has all the Japanese mixes and he lives in Charlotte, but a very good friend from high school likes him even though she has a boyfriend, and every time I get to play IIDX or Pop'n Music (which he ALSO has all of) with him or even start a fucking conversation, she jumps in, starts tickling him and prevents me from saying anything.

We all hung out the other day at Alonzo's, and I was talking with him about a Pop'n Music song, asked him if it was hard ('cause I've only played it, what... two times? That time being the second), and she jumps in, drives him off, and I frowned and played the song by myself with no one to talk to. I was alone, yet people were in the room, and it's really awkward, 'cause I love her and all, but it is like "FUCK, JUST LET ME HAVE A FIVE MINUTE CONVERSATION". I mean, I've been obsessed with Pop'n for four years now, and I FINALLY find a person who's very good at it, knows the characters I'm talking about, LIKES the characters I like, makes fun of the same dumb shit that I do, and... it's all in front of me, but I can't reach it, and it's one of the most frustrating things I have EVER dealt with. D:

OMFG, sorry, life story, but we haven't talked or hung out in a while, and I gotta get stuff offa my chest xDDD

:glomp:

When do you have a day off next? D:

Thanks very much! I hate drawing clothes so much, I suck at them xD I'm glad it actually looks decent *sigh of relief*

Yeah, he's wearing two bandannas xD Also, I got two bandannas and tried to recreate that look, and I swear it's not possible, or maybe I'm doing something HORRIBLY wrong. Maybe I should upload the pics I have of myself trying to look like this guy. I think my tongue is out in every one of them xDDD

Yeah, his expression and the mouth didn't really look too much like they went together, but I really didn't want to change his mouth because I liked it xD

He just looks like "Oh, someone's takin' my picture again? Better throw out that tongue."


Haha, yes. This character was very fitting for green. I have four more to go in this "Colors" series, arrrgh xD And now that you mention it, I don't see many green oriented characters either. D:

OMG, yeah he would xD

Yeah, but it's based on a bemani song, so unfortunately no Marth and Roy. D: But if I was doing anything else (I'm limiting myself to beatmania characters for this particular series), that's exactly what I would do. xD
