The last two updates


Character Design - Oran

The sixth and final update on the Panacea Characters. With that I have all the main characters finished. Above you can see Oran, 32 years old, 180 centimeters tall. And below, Tam-Ro: 63 years old and 165 centimers tall. Not that much has changed on these two, just some minor tweaks.

Maqilo


Character Design - Maqilo

Fifth post in the Panacea characters update. This time not only the character drawing but also the name: simplified from Maquiloh to Maqilo. This is the leader of the small village I mentioned before. He is 48 years old, 190 centimeters tall and father of Sila.

Scotland – Isle of Skye


And a whole bunch of other locations. No opportunity to upload any new photos since the previous post. And now I’m already back home! Great vacation, saw a lot of cool places. Below the rest of the photos. First, the isle of skye:

Scotland – Ben Nevis


Better weather today and so the highest mountain in Scotland (Great Britain actually) was the goal. Quite a walk: 1344 meters high and the starting point is at 10 meters above sea level. A shame that the actual sumit was in the clouds, so no spectaculair views from there. But otherwise great climb (and actually pretty sunny most of the time). Photos below:

Scotland – The Highlands


Unfortunately the weather was too bad to actually go into the highlands on foot. The Ben Hope (the most Northern Munroe) was on the program, but that was not to be. But the tour of the higlands by car was great too. Below some of the photos.

Scotland – Inverness


Some photos from Inverness, Scotland. Not to great weather, probably only half the temperature compared to Holland. But at least it’s dry. Germany Vs Urugay coming up. Let’s see what that will bring.

Imden


Imden

And here is the fourth update. This time with one of the main characters: Imden. I completely redid this character, based on a drawing I posted here before. But as I never posted the original, comparing the two might be a bit difficult. Imden is 182 centimeters tall, 23 years old and the main good guy.

Colouring on this one was pretty fast. I’m really getting better at this… well at least faster, I’ve done better colouring jobs.
