Dog?

Discussion of the series and characters not relating to the RPG.
Forum rules
This board is here to hopefully make the forum a little less focused on RPG only and allow casual fans to pop in and talk about the Lodoss series. Please be civil, and try to avoid vicious fanboy/girl arguments. I do not enjoy drama, and I will be quick to put a stop to it. Everyone has their own opinions, and they may not be the same as yours, but they should be respected.

Any posts regarding fan art, fan fiction, or cosplay should be posted on the sub-forum of this board!

Dog?

Post by shadowgeyser »

I noticed, in Nobuteru Yuuki's official artwork for the OAV, that there are some pictures of a...dog like creature. Does anyone know the story behind this? The dog definitely was not in Yuuki's OVA series, and I haven't watched Chronicles but I doubt it's there too.

I have no idea. It's not in any of the anime or manga, and Yuuki had nothing to do with Chronicles. I assume he might just like dogs and thought Parn and Deed needed a pet when they settled down together, you know, before the half-elf baby making. XD

Bleh! I don't care much for Parn's character!

Hey, in the Lodoss OVA artwork that's done by "unknown artists" I know who did some. Should I tell you in this topic, create a new topic so everyone can see, or just send you a PM? I also have some questions, but I don't like creating multiple topics.

Alright, this is going to be pretty lengthy!

First, the art done by artists as a fact, with proof: (please keep in mind I'm not trying to be rude, my intent is to be helpful!)

Definitely done by Nobuteru Yuuki:

http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8144
(as you & I discussed, he's the only artist who has used the dog)

http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8139
http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8157
http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8158
http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8159
http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8160
(all of these pictures have a signature on them, NOB., the abbreviation of Nobuteru, of course)

http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8148
(this is the cover of one of Yuuki's artbooks->http://pagesperso-orange.fr/planete-da/ ... rtbook.htm)
______________________________________________________
Most likely done by Yuuki:

your signature and all the artwork in that style (Deedlit & Parn at the top of this page, Shiris & Orson, the group where it says "record of lodoss war with light and darkness" &c.), I can SWEAR I saw the picture of Ashram and Pirotess with Yuuki's NOB. signature. Animepapers.com(? or .net) also has that picture, and the uploader mentions it's from one of Yuuki's artbooks. I'll try to get a link.

also, this uploader (http://www.melorasworld.com/fanlistingsyuuki/hisart.php) mentions another of Yuuki's artbooks, one of the drawings being http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8155
_______________________________________________________
I swear I remember!:

I'm a big fan of Yuuki's art (I promise I'm not as crazy about it as I appear here!) and I have done some searching over time. I don't have solid proof, but I can swear I've seen these pictures as done by Yuuki:

http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8140
http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8146 <-actually this one I once found a full picture image that had Yuuki's trademark NOB. on it. because I can't provide solid proof, I'll just categorise this here.
http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8147 <-of course all the screens are drawn by Yuuki, but I'm pretty sure he did the Deedlit in black dress too.
http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8152
http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8154
http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8151 <-I swear this was a watercolor done by him

AND the rest on that page (the photograph, chess, etc) were possibly done by him, MINUS the red Kashue, Deedlit mini-icon, and Ashram with eagle.
The only evidence these were done by Yuuki besides my remembering is, of course, that pretty much all of the pictures use the same style that Yuuki uses. Unless, of course, someone is able to copy his style like that verbatim. For example, it's noticeable that even the picture of Deedlit holding the heart-box with threads around her is practically same style, although she looks baby-faced.
________________________________________________________
And last, the "What the heck?" section:

http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... ?pos=-8156
this cool picture of Ashram doesn't really seem to be in Yuuki's style, but there is a signature at the bottom that looks like "Not" with Japanese characters. Is it "Nob", or did Nobuteru just select the N, O, & T in his name?

http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... pos=-14831
first of all, WOW I'm jealous of Ashram in that picture. second of all, that looks like it may have been drawn by Nobuteru. when I first saw the picture, I only knew about this one: http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... pos=-15027
so at first I definitely thought it was done by him. If Deedlit & Parn can have a "Las Vegas" theme by Yuuki, why can't Ashram & Pirotess have something? But then I encountered the link right above it that you posted (the omoide, love, evocation link) so I tried to find it. Every single site I find that once had Botsatsu's art is GONE. I CANNOT find anything! But I was able to find some messageboard comments that made it sound as if this guy, "Bosatsu" had actually drawn it! So, where on earth did you find that picture (I assume you must have found it a few good years ago, back when his sites were still active because his art is not available ANYWHERE to my knowledge), and do you remember anything at all about it, like who actually drew it (Nobuteru, Bosatsu, or even someone else) and anything else? I'm sorry to rave on, but I'm EXTREMELY curious about this picture because it's the rarest and coolest one of Lodoss War in general, best one of Ashram and Pirotess, and it's possible deception of "Bosatsu" possibly drawing it rather than a big-name artist although it actually looks like Yuuki did it.
________________________________________________
Sorry if it's chaotic, I tried to make it as nicely organised as possible! Also, don't worry about moving the pictures which I provided proof for under the correct category-that's too much work. I just wanted to inform!

By-the-by, you mentioned here http://gallery.eiyuukishiden.com/displa ... p?pos=-155 that you would like a complete picture? If you still want one then I managed to find it: http://www.atp.com.ar/verpost.asp?ID=48254

And here's a great picture of Ashram by Yuuki: http://www.taospage.net/Old/Nobuteruyuuki.html

Just thought I'd share those with you!

Thanks for the clarification! Some of his art varies so much in style and media, I couldn't be sure what was his and what wasn't.

As for the Ashram and eagle drawing, it looks more like Yutaka Izabuchi's work, but the signature looks a bit like Yuuki's. It could also potentially be fan art, as I've never seen Ashram associated with an eagle or hawk in any Lodoss art.

I came across Botastu's fan art several years ago, and there is also a Deedlit drawing she/he had done. The first image I found was very old and a much cruder drawing of Pirotess, but it I'm pretty sure it's all original fan art. There are a lot of good fan artists out there who could certainly be considered professional though.

Aso, there are some fun little card images from CotHK with Ashram and Pirotess in modern get-ups.

Thanks for trying, but that isn't quite what I was hoping to find, in fact I've found that photoshopped piece many times over. It also has Karla's circlet removed from the background!
