L'amore by Bonka-chan L'amore by Bonka-chan
SKETCHING IN PS ELEMENTS IS LIKE MAGIC WHEN YOU HAVE PRESSURE ON THE TABLET PEN!! 8V

Learn a bit more about these guys here: [link]


So yeah... I was playing around with that... and just drew these guys more... I was a bit hesitant to posting all of it actually though... because I almost felt like they were a bit spoilerish... but honestly...


You guys can only guess and really have no idea what happens in the end, so DOOP. :V



The story is finally coming together more though... I can finally just kind of draw sketches of their interactions together without just trying to settle on a character design.... These will pretty much be their look from now on... Though as we know now, the treeman's design is a bit more apt to change for the different seasons... (but this is kind of his "human" look so that's pretty much the same regardless of the season...for the most part...)


Oh, and I'm still having this take place in Paris if you guys didn't know... :V (so French names would be preferable for him... sorry, forgot to mention that... ^^;) But the year that it all happens is about 1905.


And I didn't mention it yet, but I guess I will now... (since I already titled the folder for this story on here in my gallery...)

The name of this story is Coeur de Fleur. O:

It's kind of funny b/c I thought up the English title first (Flower Heart) but instantaneously realized that it sounded better (and pretty much even rhymes) in French! :D haha!



So this is the name you want to look out for eventually, folks... :I



I used a texture that I found here: [link]



You will start seeing a lot more PS done pics and stuff in the future now... :I


... I'm already loving these two so much... :'I (I hope you guys are too! :'D hehe ~:heart:)



Enjoy. :V



*EDIT: Oh, hey! He actually has a name now, guyz... forgot to mention that... ^^;


These guys (c) me
Steal and you die. :V

I really enjoy the characters designs you have her, especially the tree man! It's nice to see characters that don't have to look like they came out of a magazine in order to find their true love oh god that sounded mushy as hell...

For names, I'd say go with that :iconniah-miyoki: said, and go to babynames.com - that's probably your best bet!

I also feel ya on the sketching with a tablet pressure, except I do it on Sai instead of photoshop XD

I saw Clement a few comments down and I'm partial to that. If you really want to get into, though, you can search babynames.com for male, French names. Some I got from there are Durand (strong, lasting), Laramie (of the leafy grove), Olivier (olive tree), and Silvain (forest), with the variation Sylvian (of the forest).

Hm... Naming is the hardest part if you ask me... I have a few suggestions, some of my favorite French names.

Charles (Pretty Traditional...), Antoine, Matthieu and Julian....

French names are beautiful, so I'm sure any name you pick will work fabulously well :) Great Designs, Bonka!

I'm not too sure about whether or not it can be used as a French name, but when I look at Tree-man for some reason the only name that comes to mind is Alastair.
Is there some French alternative? One of the reasons I think it suits him so much is because the name "Alastair"s meaning has something to do with growth (whether of the mind or the body idk).

But I already love him, regardless of what you eventually call him. Can't wait for more!

I have a question...I have no real idea why I am asking this, but I do like the fluffy/tragic moments, so I like when the tears come out, so I want to know does he cry water, or sap?

Loving the new sketches more and more~! :heart:

I have a few male French name suggestions for him, as well as their meanings. I'm sorry for how long it is!! XD

~Calogero - beautiful at old age (I think it's appropriate in regards to how trees age)
~Chesney/Cheney - oak wood, oak grove
~Jean/Jean-Charles - God is gracious (you mentioned he's a Christian after all)
~Georges - earth worker
~Jeffrie/Jophery - God's peace
~Lawrence/Lorand - crowned with laurel (it's a type of tree)
~Lazare - God has helped
~Teddie/Tedd, Theo/Theodore - gift of God

What about Theron? For a name? It's French (well...and Greek lol) and it means Untamed...at least in French. lol

Kinda fits Treeman.
