    Count Fester

    Post  Qwazin on Sat Feb 21, 2009 5:51 pm

    So as far as I know there is to be a new villian, and so far he has not had a manifestation to be officially declared, so therefore I felt like giving a shot at throwing out some designs.



    Here's a few sketches for as to how I imagine him looking (if I'm correct he's supposed to be a rat). Critique, ideas and suggestions are welcome. Smile I'd really love to design some villianry for this project.

    Those are Amazing!!! However, we've already come up with a design for him. I thought i showed you:


    What you could do is make Viku's Drawing a little less anime-ish, and more into your own style.

    Yeah sure. Yes I had seen that one before but I thought it was just a sketch among other suggestions. What is it you think is the most important to be kept in this design? The suit? The robot implants? Or both of those? I feel like I wanna play around with him a bit if thats okay, and so I need to know what I shouldn't touch and whatnot.

    Well we definitely need the robotic parts of him- problem is, the mechanics kinda go hand and hand with the suit basically because of the Monocle, the gloves & Cane. The Monocle and Cane are both mechanical.

    So what exactly do you wanna do?

    I dunno, I just really wanna add my own spin on him. Add my own touches and such. It would be somewhat boring to just do a straight style-conversion, but if thats what you want me to do then I'll do it.

    I was thinking of having my humpback-styled Fester but dressed up in those clothes, or something. But yeah, I'll just give a go att drawing the official design in my own style for now, unless you maybe want to add something? Make him fatter? Furrier? More manic-looking? More details on the mechanical parts?

    Well the reason we mad him more slim and smart is because Grunty's past assistant (excluding NaB) has been slow, hunchback and a tad stupid.

    For now- just do a cross-over from his style to yours, and then you can mess around with him. (lol... innuendo...)

    Can I keep his headshape from my designs? I'm quite fond of it seeing as it's more NAB-cubish, and I think he looks more of a rat that way. XD

    I'll try to give him a cartoony-slim look.

    But he's antropromorphic (i totally messed up the spelling XD), so his face kinda needs to be less realistic. Your design is really realistic.

    However! We can use your design for the intro when he's just a regular rat. He can were the goggles too ^_^

    Actually for his "normal rat" version I think it'd be better if he was a hobo-version of the official Fester. He'd be like Jimminy Cricket in Pinocchio and change from a dirty, torn hat and then get a brand sparkin' new one along with a suit. No need to keep my silly goggles, since they'll seem uneccesary once he gets his eyepatch-thingie. Smile

    Alright, I kinda went for a combo of the two. It's a bit messy I guess. If you want him cuter I'll try to cutsey him up a bit.

    I like the suit.. If you could do some changes to the face he would be prefect!

    Well Done

    Is this more to your liking or should I go for a Mickey Mouse kind of face?

    Much better. I still feel there's something odd, but I'm not really sure...maybe is the eye's potition that makes her look like brainless....but that's a minor detail

    Good job!

    Grunty kind of had that feature too in NAB, with eyes on each side of the head. I thought it'd make sense seeing as rats actually kind of have their eyes like that... if I'm not mistaken. Or maybe I'm thinking of fish, haha. Anywho, I dunno why I made it like that when I think about it, cause I hated the NAB design of Grunty, but I guess I thought it'd give some uniqueness to the character. xD

    But yeah, thanks. I actually quite like the simplicity of the above one. The lower one might need a shorter nose, but all in all I think a combination of the two could make a great Fester design. Smile

    hey- have you been working on finishing the design?

    I'd love to show some concepts to the public on the BKTCJGameChannel (if you haven't added & subscribed to the channel, go here:

    Alright, I think I've got him! I'm with you guys now that a cuter face makes him look much better. He looks much more appealng and stuff. I also realized as soon as I uploaded this that I forgot his tail, but anyway, let me know what you think!



    I left his cain empty aswell because I'm not quite sure how it should look. Maybe we can simplify it down into a very thin fuel tank from NAB?

    Wow! He looks great! One teensy-tiny thing: Can you make his monocle oversized? I liked that part about his original design. I know his tail needs to be added so i won't say anything about that part. Razz

    I hope we can get him colored (or MS painted or Photoshoped), because he looks really good. Smile

    I would've tried to colour him if it wasn't for that Vista seems to hate my tablet drivers, so I'm kinda restricted to paper.

    We're continuing the trend of having Rare villians with oversized eyes eh? ;) I guess the monocle thing could be fixed in the photoshop process or something.
