The Keywriter by Retromissile The Keywriter by Retromissile
Look! It's a white Navi in a Tron legacy outfit. :rofl:
No really. This is my OC. =D

Really. Sure Tron exists longer than me, but the new Tron legacy outfit made me cry. But hey. I was the first and I don't care. I just wonder when the first fantards pass by and tell me that it looks like...
I just remember that I uploaded the first black glowing blue design one year ago. And of course, the clothing looks the same like their spaceships. hurr hurr.


Something I'm happy with...kinda. I just needed to draw but I don't know if I solved my crisis. Worked a whole week on the sketch and now it's done. :iconclapplz:

I listened to Tangerine Dream the whole time and I guess that some songs sound like I imagine the music of the Stellar Rulers. (Synthesizer for the win!)

Here's the song I associate with this pic (even if you're not interested): [link] (Sungate by Tangerine Dream)

Keywriters are two things. First the instrument itself and the guy who plays it. Stellar Rulers had these nice robes and the whole tech stuff from the synth keywriter thing is a part of the textiles (in short, the coat is the device). Stellar Rulers have a connection to their machines and so they turn it on and off with their mind. Also their music is a product of a lot mind and finger work.

Enjoy.

Exi is mine.

I know, this is old work. And some aithors don't like when people talk about their old things, but I have to say something because this drawing was one of the first few related to your project I saw.
I didn't think about Tron when I saw this one. However, I just can't compare so different things, different characters and concepts of different people.
The next thing, I want to say. The music. It just makes this drawing so alive and so otherwordly:love:. I'm just... Ah, this just carried me away:love:. How could I look at this beautiful scene without the music playing? Don't know. Why I didn't click the link at the first time... Now I see in what way you associated this music with the drawing, I see how much the rhitm of the melody have similar with the whole visual rhitm here. In the melody I can see lofty moves of Excellsior, I can hear the music in the flow of fabric and hair, in his pose, I can hear and feel this now. That's wonderful:love:

Hahah you're probably the first one who listened to the song. XD (It's still one of my faves ^^)
I think it fits his character. Event though he's currently angry and creepy in the comic, he's a calm, pieceful entity with a very large mindscape.

I think when author connect artwork with some music track, to get whole impression you need to listen music.
Agree. It creates an impression of deep wisdom and much memories he have. Wonderful:love:

Well to be correct, Tron:Legacy color scheme for the good guys was (glowing) white on (leather/pitch) black :P
But still a good graphic and props for getting your inspiration from oldschool synthesizer pop of Tangerine Dream...
I mean, I'm prolly more than 10 years older than you and I had difficulties to remember their tunes (lol I'm old)

Mhm yes it's worth it. Even if action movies are not your thing, from a designers point of view it's definitely an accomplishment and possibly inspiring.

Oh man that sucks about the Tron thing. I had the same problem when Avatar came out; I use blue for skin colors on my critters a lot so I got a barrage of 'OH MY GOD IT'S AN AVATAR MONSTER' comments haha...

Love this design he looks so calm and into what he is doing.

Hahaha same here. The species of this guy here is also blue and they have some markings long before Avatar came out. And suddenly people bash you for being unoriginal.
