Prince of Mousethieves by 1-Renaissance Prince of Mousethieves by 1-Renaissance
=============
Extracted from Mossflower by Brian Jacques, sung by Gonff:

The Prince of Mousethieves honors you,
To visit here this day.
So keep your larder door shut tight,
Lock all your food away.
O foolish one, go check your store
Of food so rich and fine.
Be sure that I'll be back for more,
Especially this wine.
==============

Here's my attempt at the Gonff, inspired by Kelaiah's design.

I kid you not, the sketch took a whole lot erasing. But the whole thing was quite entertaining nonetheless. :D

Everyone loves compliments, but as usual I'm open to criticism so be MEAN if you have to. I want your honest opinions. Thanks. :D Just please don't ask me who Gonff is. I wouldn't even honor that question with an answer.


=====================
I don't own Redwall, Mossflower, or anything that has to do with that.

Redwall (C) Brian Jacques

I mean long thin arms don't go well with a fat body. Sorry about the error there.

He looks too serious. Also the long thin arms don't go well with a thin body. Also he just doesn't look like a jolly fat guy.

This will not be Gonff's design. He will be designed by ~Kelaiah.

I always thought of Gnoff as grey, but hey, that's just me. Everything else is great! XD

Well if you're the one stealing the goods, your face wouldn't look too pleasant either. Besides, this is not the offical design. I won't be the one designing Gonff. That's Kelaiah's job. :D

He looks more like a rat than a mouse.

His muzzle's too short to belong to a rat's. But if it's the evil look on his face then yes, it would be ratty. Lucky for us all, Kelaiah will be designing Gonff.

I'd have thought Gonff was shorter and Plumper, based on his description in the book...

I really really like this, Gonff looks wicked cool. Only some anatomical errors, even if it's not a character sheet you did ask for concrit ;) His arms are much too long for his body and unequal to each other - if you compare where each arm's elbow would be, Gonff's left (your right) hand would reach past his knee. Also, as others have said, the fat is unevenly distributed - his neck and limbs should be thicker to support his stomach's weight. Otherwise he is quite impressive.

Who's Gonff? 0_o

....Pfffteheh! XD

This is by far my favorite character out of ALL Redwall characters in general, let alone the Mossflower book. Actually it might be him alone that made me love the book more then any of the others.

Now. For the ever so serious stuff. See this? I'm even putting on my seriosu face. :B

He does look skinny in other places and then just round in the middle. True. But I like this. For one thing, you made it work without making him look awkward, and two this will allow the animators to make him move quicker without his awkward pudgyness getting in the way. But if the scrawniness does tend to bug you a little bit I recomend adding baggy long leaves so you cant see how skinny his arms are.....and maybe a hat. For no particular reason except that Gonff looks awesome in feathered hats. XD

As far as the expresion goes, he does look a bit menacing. That's a good look for him when he goes into battle at Salamandastron. Looking feirce but not taking it seriously either. That's totally Gonff. Have you tried working on an expression sheet for him?

All that is helpful. Really.

But there's just one thing. I won't be doing Gonff for this project. That honor will be given to the one and only Kelaiah. I did this for the heck of it and decided to use it as part of my audition piece.

But thank you. :D

I like it, but one thing I notice is that he's too round in the belly, and not round enough in the face, arms, and such. But I LOVE his tunic and the look on his face! =p

I'm not sure that this is going to be Gonff's design. At first I did this for the heck of it then figured I could use it as an audition piece. I think Kelaiah's doing Gonff.

Reminds me of veil the ferret. Awesome pic too :D. I would say he's rather rougish than menacing, everyone calls him a young rougue anyway

He looks a bit menacing, to be honest. But good coloring, and that would be a good form for Gonff.

The quality of your sketches is so detailed, the quality of your digital is just so smooth! It's like it came from a TV show!

I believe you will have a future in the animation biz someday. :)

WOW. Just... *wow*.

Blows mine out of the water. :D Ah man, this is fantastic, I love it! :D I think maybe, with your permission, I'll give Gonff two tunics: this one (your's) will be his winter-tunic, whereas mine is the one that he wears in the spring/summer. And maybe I'll make him a bright yellow one for when Martin wakes up. :D

But wow, you actually inspired me with this, so thank you, thank you very much! :D :D :D :clap: :rose:

It's alright with me if you want to use any of his features. :D I'd actually be honored.

I inspired you? At first it was the other way around. Your design of Gonff made me want to draw him. Funny how things turn out, eh?. :D

You're very welcome. And thank you so much! :D:D:D:thanks:
