The Orchestrate by joodlez The Orchestrate by joodlez
Tools used: Paint Tool SAI + Wacom Graphire tablet

The Orchestrate is an exclusive group of magic users who specialize in the magic of ~*~*music*~*~. They each wield (lol) a musical instrument, with which they can manipulate their designated natural element, which is in turn dependent on the instrument group.

They are also my well-dressed antagonists. *`__`* their names are: Aria, Nocturne, Serenata, and Baroque, from left to right.

This is also derived from a really old sketch so I still see some technical errors... which may or may not fix asdfjgh

one layer bg + one layer everything else + one layer texture

everything here (c) me

What interesting-looking characters! Gorgeous designs, too. :heart: Pity they're villains, though. :( I want to like them. Nocturn and Serenata look... rather young to be villains, too. Are they really evil and villainous, or are their goals just contrary to the protagonists and that makes them antagonists by default?

I never noticed it before but Juby the background shows what element they manipulate right?? baroque's is the grass and plants, and Nocturne's is the water/ice!!

AMAZING. Just look at their outfits! Colour scheme is incredibly pleasant! It sure veers them away from your typical dark antagonishs...
Their names are great too! I mean...other people would have just said: "Mozart", but you! You are awesome!
Nocturne is adorable!!! I'm in love. :tighthug:
I have a question though...
WHat exactly are layers....and does Paint Tool SAI have them..?

The blending of colors look really nice~ Especially with the hair and Aria's wrap~ (The purple in Aria's hair makes me go Aieeeee *__* ) Good job! :thumbsup:

One of them has a piccolo, right? right? *wink wink nudge nudge*

Sounds fun! The clothing reminds me of some of the Tales of --- video games. There was a character in Baten Kaitos that wielded a horn as a weapon. It was actually creepy because he actually just bashed things with it. >.>
