Hieros Reference Sheet by Zimeta Hieros Reference Sheet by Zimeta
There we go! Finished a new reference sheet for Hieros Caelum. Just in case I decide to do art trades again sometime in the future.

I totally forgot to draw one without his helmet on, though. ^^; Oh well! Just know this: He has a mohawk.

It's a pretty big change from his last design, but still recognizable as him. I even kept the stripe on the back of his suit! Huhu.

His basic story: Hieros is an alien from another world. He travels about in space sometimes getting himself into pretty big trouble.
He's one of the last of his kind, and has been dodging getting picked up by The Committee for Species' Safety, and evil corporation that "protects" endangered species by taking them away and locking them up.

:bulletyellow: Personality: Outgoing, spiritual, fun-loving until threatened. Secretly a deep-thinker.
:bulletyellow: Age: Over 2000 years.
:bulletyellow: Species: Shiee-Gaoy
:bulletyellow: Interests: Pan pipes (expert player!), human culture
:bulletyellow: Likes: Chips (He loves them.), Superman, Harry Potter (I haven't read them, but he seems to think they're good)
:bulletyellow: Tweaks: He can fly really well, but usually crashes on his landings.
:bulletyellow: Abilities: Flight, Telekinesis
:bulletyellow: Weakness: Canines. (Dogs, wolves etc.) They hate him.

That's a very original background I guess it makes a very interesting story too :)

You know, I can see this design growing on me after a while. As with most things, it just takes some time. Though, you always allude to some important aspect of your story that demanded the change be made, but you've never revealed what that is. I'm curious to find out.

So, secretly a deep thinker... Well, I imagine being alive for 2000 years gives a guy a lot to think about. Oh, and he loves chips, Superman, and Harry Potter? I think we'd get along quite nicely. Has anybody else drawn Hieros with his new groove yet?

Well... it's mostly that the old design didn't make much sense for a living breathing person. For instance: How the heck would you lie down with shoulder blades going over your back like that? :0
But also other things. Small things that are probably only important to me. :XD:

Nobody's drawn him with his new groove yet, nope. I need to do some art trades again.

Does he have freckles now? Awesome! (I'm a sucker for freckles) Love how you tightened up his design a bit more. Great expressions.

Nice ^_^ I like the jump suit, but I miss his arm wire things.
Still a very unique character!

Hehe. Yeah... the wire thing was part of "ye olde" story-line. Just didn't have a purpose anymore. ^^;

Nice update, but I have to agree with the other commentors: his older look was a little more alien than this one, however the red eyes has that effect just a little.

Yup - that's pretty much the point of the redesign. Making him more relatable because he's often going to star alone in chapters.

Wow, that is a pretty big change. I'll differ from the other's opinions so far in that I actually dig the jumpsuited look.

Yes - definitely a drastic change - are Sanctus and Umbrosus affected by this too?

Just curious - what prompted you to alter the designs?

I dig it! But I also really liked the more realistic, almost gothic look he had before.

Yup. All the Shiee-Gaoy are being changed. :)

The change... well, the characters used to go in a different story way back in the day. Eventually I changed that story into this completely different OtherWorld one. And, I was a bit slow on changes the characters' appearances to go with it.

Plus I need Hieros to be more relatable if he's going to be the main character. ;)

Ah, understood. Funny, I recently have been doing some assimilation within stories of my own universes too.

to be honest; I kinda liked him more with his past look, was more cute on my opinion.

But if you like him, that's all Hieros need ^^ the helmet, expression, color and wings are as lovely as ever

The new designs fit the story better, believe me. :D
The old designs were bugging me for quite a while... which is why I didn't draw them for over a year. ^^;

Aww, they used to look so... alien I guess is the word haha.
However, this does give his face a lot more range, which you probably find much more important. I like your colors choices, except something about the red eyes bugs me a little. Any particular reason you picked that color?

They're red to keep him more alien looking. Hehe.
