Bane's Final Look - Hopefully by Kelaiah Bane's Final Look - Hopefully by Kelaiah
Welp, here it is, what is hopefully the last concept art for Bane's look for the Mossflower movie.

Of course, I'll have to redo it again in order to match it to the required style that the whole team decided on (I wasn't apart of the decision, but I was 'won over' when they said it was better for the animators).

Fun fact about Bane's sword: its based off a real actual curved sword that ColeTheCoywolf showed me. It was an AWESOME sword, so I decided to have it be Bane's. :D

Plus it was suggested to me that I again use Riowolf's Skipper's pose for Bane, just like I did for Cludd. :)

And I've also applied suggestions Eshva gave me as well, along with I think a couple of others. :nod:

Hm, so in many ways lots of people helped me on this design, so...

Thank you all, very very much. :D :iconpineappletardplz:

Also, one extra piece of info: I decided not to give Bane a sheath for his sword, just maybe an extra loop on his belt. That way I think the animators will have less to work with. :)

Welp, I guess that's all, except for: I do not own Bane, Redwall, Mossflower, or anything of the kind. It all belongs to Brian Jacques. I do own this design, except some of it, if not a lot of it, were inspired by the rest of you. So thanks, guys! :D

Enjoy, and God bless! :boogie:

Im actually reading Mossflower at the moment, you captured him perfectly also they said him and his band of three score foxes were ragged a bit, if they would of described him with one i would of said you should of added a ragged kilt but he wasnt wearing one (Pouts) but its good its good XD

I agree about the sword frog. That way, he has a way to carry his sword, (I mean, really, who just sticks his very SHARP sword into his belt?!?!?) which makes it more realistic, AND you can show it off at the same time! (Another consideration is the fact that Bane, being a mercenary, and therefore having a somewhat ragged look, wouldn't use a sheath- it would look too clean-cut.)

Scimitar or possibly falchion. If you choose to forego a sheath, I suggest then a sword-frog (not the bloated primitives from Redwall canon) to hold it. Will show off blade nicely.

...... Well i know this may be more than a little late to reply to this message, but the sword is based on a Turkish sword. The Kilij, (the real differences being that the sword Bane has has a different handle/guard and the blade is shaped a little different) which i guess could be called out as a Scimitar or Falchion.... :XD:

If i saw his mercinaries marching towards me I'd abandon ship! Very awesome. Belts look like they could hold more than like 5 swords. And a minigun... He's gonna look cooler when he's all digitalized I think (or whatever its called)

This looks great! I'm still just loving the belts, and that sword is really quite awesome! I think you can take a bit of artistic license and skip the sheath really. It'll look good that way I think. I just compared the two designs, and this one is definatly better. The extra scar was a good idea from Eshva, it looks more balanced. His ears also look better, being bigger, and I think his face looks more foxy here too. I say don't loose any of the earings, they're a great touch (responding to the concern from the first design ;))
And wow, I'm glad Skip's design has been so useful!
Question though... what is the required design we have agreed on? Did I miss a desision here, lol? Or do you mean it just won't be Nelvana looking? Sorry, perhaps I'm just being oblivious here XD

Aaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwww, thaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaanks! :D :D :D :boogie: :boogie: :boogie:

I'm glad you agree about the sheath and all the extra little details! :D :boogie:

And I'm glad you made your Skipper concept the way you did; its been very helpful to me concerning strong-looking critters. ;) :D

As for the requeired design, no, its not going to be Nelvana-styled anymore. Apparently, mostly everyone in charge hated the look - though I liked it. :shrug: But anyway, Eshva told me that she's going to try to post a character sheet that has all the new requirements (along with the new style) up soon, that way the rest of us can have a reference. :D

Also, you might want to keep an eye on Kobb, an artist who's been doing tutorials for us Character Designers (in case you haven't already read them) : [link] and [link]

Ah, ok, I'll keep my eye out for that then. I have an idea of what the character sheets format will be, but I'm very curious what this style will be! Hopefully I can pull it off ;P


Yup, I've been watching Kobb since before this project. I'm really glad she joined in. She's got a great style and some pretty freakin impressive skills ;)

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW YEAH. There he is, there's that Mercenary Fox that took down the eagle (died in the process, but the same could be said about Cluny and Redwall). Yeah, this is just completely AWESOME I tell you, this doesn't compare to your other Bane pics.

I'm a bad critic, I don't care what anyone says, this blows it out of the water. Whether they get this Bane or not, I'm excited to see they got people like you on the staff, and I'm serious, I'm not saying that just cuz your my friend. Even if you weren't I would say the same thing.

Any strong Character + Riowolf's Skipper Pose = Totally flippin awesome as apples! Congrats on the both of you. Rio really made an influential design. Wow, as of every Anthro animal, I especially love the footpaws. They look so great, well done :D. Geeze, this pic deserve's its own background and theme music :lol:

It did :), aww, that was from the previous episode 2. Someday I'll get back to doing episodes. But for now, writing stuff is real fun.

I'm serious about it all, this pic is just...wow, I can't tell you how much I'm diggin it right now. I mean, normally I'm not all for this style, as you known me in the past. But, you know, since I'm reading redwall again, I just adore this, he looks so bad! (in a good way of course ;))

Hah! I just made that saying up, wow, I believe your one of the only other people to find my original jokes funny. YAY! I'm getting better. Asahel saying that :? hmm, I'm honored :)

The footpaws are what make any animal drawing good or bad in my world.

And those two would only make this cooler once it's animated. Once the movie enters Bane, some cool music pops up in the background, making him more impressive. And Clud (or Brogg) are all jealous :XD:. I wish I had theme music they'd say.

And once again I'm so glad you're enjoying it so much! :D :boogie:

Your welcome, and believe me, Asahel has said stuff like that before. Heh, there's this one line that's sort of the punch-line for almost the whole story. :giggle:

:rofl: Ahahaha, I just imagined Bane entering Kotir all dramatically, with some sexy background music as the camera dramatically pans across his foxy frame, and all the females swoon with glee, and Cludd (even though he's dead before Bane arrives) and Brogg snort and cross their arms, "Hmph! Wish *I* had theme music!"

:XD: :laughing:

Haha :lol: really he has? Well, I am more anxious for your book to be publish so I could buy it (the first book I have ever bought before) and finish it just to read it again.

Fortunata would definitely swoon and fall for him, she sort of did with Mask, I think, and he kinda scared her. But that certainly is a humorous scenario. Someone ought to do something like that once the movie is finished :XD:

Kelaiah Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2010
Yep. :D Thanks! :D :boogie:

OH yes. I've been pairing those two for a long time. :giggle:

Heh heh, lately, I keep on picturing this scenario:

Fortunata and Tsarmina are sitting at a bar, their noses buried in books called "How To Flirt".

Bane sidles up to Fortunata, and the two foxes share a brief, flirtatious look...

...and then Fortunata gets in his face and screams at the top of her lungs, "HELLO. I WANNA HAVE YOUR BABY."

Bane makes a run for it, and Fortunata, blushing, buries her nose back in her book.

Tsarmina, after getting over her initial shock, rolls her eyes, muttering, "Pathetic..."

:XD: :laughing:

But who knows? Maybe the movie will be changed enough for Bane and Fortunata to have some screentime together? :XD:
