Skipper and Amber Concept Art by Kelaiah Skipper and Amber Concept Art by Kelaiah
Here finally is some concept art of the two battle-geniuses who kept Tsarmina chasing her own tail while Martin was off battling toads and Gonff was dancing with crabs. ;) :XD:

First off, I already realize they still need TONS of work:

I don't like how Skipper's face came out, so be sure I'm going to work on it, but I am glad at how his body came out, because it does look ottery to me (though I might make him a bit more brawny and barrel-chested in the future). As for his tunic, I based it off the pic of him in the Redwall Tribe of Otters: [link] If you have any suggestions on this, please come out and say so. :)

As for Amber, I don't like how she looks much, either. I think her head is a little too masculine (though I think I might keep that style for another squirrel), and her fur looks a bit too red. But I do like her tunic, its partially based on the picture of her in the actual book where she's about to shoot Fortunata. For Amber's final look, I think I'll base her more like 1-Renaissance's version: [link]

Now something I wanted to make mention of Skipper and Amber's tunics: both are gold-trimmed. The reason I had that was because they're both tribal leaders, and I figured that could be to show their rank. Though I suppose one could say that wouldn't help with camoflouge; maybe its just golden-yellow? What do you all think?

Didn't Lady Amber lose an ear among other things in the Kotir Wars?

You're right Lady Amber does look a little masculine...maybe fixing the head shape would help?

As for Skipper, I have no critiques. Their tunic colors are a little too bright, though.

Nice job, Skip looks awesome. Amber looks too vicious, but as you said, this isn't done. About the gold trim, I have to admit it's too much. I'd think they'd wear more muted colours, and as someone else said, wouldn't bother with showing rank.
