RaveBattle-Sean by Ryanide RaveBattle-Sean by Ryanide
This is the main character in Rave Battle, Sean Camonte. (pronounced Cam-mont) He is a young dancer/fighter who is new to the competitive scene with a lifebeat of 160bpm.

Sean is more into dance than fighting. Typically of his kind, he's easy going and modest, and despite speciallising in techno/disco music, he's quite elegant and serene.

During the first few competitions he entered, Sean swept the competition off their feet right up until the finale, which he lost. Sean's popularity skyrocketed, with critics eyeing him as a potential future champion, and his fanbase grew to a respectable size (most of them rabid fangirls). He casually continues to enter competitions, hoping to win the King Of Raves, a massive dance competition held once a year.

Sean has trouble dealing with fame, because despite being brilliant on the dance floor, he can sometimes be quite stupid and clueless, not knowing how to handle difficult situations involving the media and other dancers. Sean is also incredibly naive, which can get him into trouble. Often, his friends need to step in to prevent him from making the wrong descisions.

When it comes to fighting, his gentle nature makes things difficult. Still, he is physically strong enough to use his body as a weapon, as well as having an arsenal of energy attacks at his disposal, many of which are extremily effective if used correctly. (But...he doesn't know how to use his powers properly, a bit like a button masher in a fighting game)

I'll be submitting a sketch of ALL the characters maybe this weekend.

NOTES ON STYLE: Hehe...two or three of you will have seen this style before...it was experimental, and now I've brought it back, only this time, it's not as emo! This is now the official Rave Battle style.

This was done completely in Flash, and YES, I CAN animate in this style! That doesn't mean I'll be doing it that often, because it takes AGES for it to work, and mostly has to be tweened.

Anyway, look, another crappy city background. I really need to learn how to draw those properly, but this is better than the last one I tried...

Rave Battle and all related characters (C) Ryanide 2006 do not distribute or steal. Thanks.

This is pretty good. Hey, I'm not familiar with RaveBattle, if that's what you call it. Have you posted anything about the plot?

I'm gonna agree with everyone else in saying this is amazing. Most people only have one or two ways of drawing and it's great. You have many styles which are all great and are gaining more as time goes. Very creative in both images and character ideas.

The discription about him reminds me of a celebrity that is good a something. they 're super naive and some sort dimmwhitted :nod: . I really like the style and mix of colors, also how hes sparkly!!! And how the signs glowing ^_^ . Plus how you made the lines keep going in that way. I can imagine him being elegant on the dance stage, how his ears would spin when hes spins,also him making sharp turns. YESSSSSSS !!! The beauty!!!

Yerrs, I wanted Sean's ears to play a big part in his overall aesthetic (lots of spinning around, whee!). He does have a very natural but graceful dancing style. He also uses his power to create light effects and little star bursts when he dances.

Thanks.

Actually, the reigning champion is an ermine named Vann. A hardcore raver who's taken the cup home for a five-year streak. It's said that his touch alone causes even the sturdies opponents to lose consciousness, as all his competitors mysteriously fell asleep during danceoffs and battle at some stage. Other than that, he's a very skillful and dirty fighter.

Lee has lost to Vann in single leagues every time, so now he's attempting to take home the tag league cup by teaming up with Chance. The champions of the tag league are Fein and Lalii, a fox and rabbit team who speciallise in pop.

Chance does the double league with Lee, but he also wants to try his luck in the single league, although Lee discourages him from trying.

so there are music classes like a country class, tecno class, and rock class do there moves differ depending on th class?
Reply
:iconryanide:
Ryanide Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2006
Not really, the fighting style changes, but the moves are character specific.

For instance, nobody can perform Quad Laser except for Lee, and Tower of Weakness can only be used by Chance. Luster Buster is Sean's signature move, but he doesn't know how to use it. Most of the time it just comes out by accident.

????? its amazing u came up with all these moves, characters, and names so quick and is quad laser that cool flurry of blows lee used on chance
Reply
:iconryanide:
Ryanide Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2006
No. Lee uses Quad Laser later on in the fight after Chance's backflip attack. Basically, Lee's whole body disappears and all you see are streaks of colour as his laser fists strike four times from the safety of the air.

He pretty much turns into a laser, or four of them.

I've animated the key poses for Chance's special move too. It's an energy draining ninja move called Tower of Weakness.

Is Sean leaning on the bar or is he just a posing^^;?

I think he's just posing. Probably for a photo shoot or something, or being stalked by someone with a torch. Damn random light sources!!

It's so pretty and colourful. The city backround definitely helps makes the image look better.

Pointless nit-picking: I just noticed the appearance of stars in the image. It make me wonder woudn't all the light pollution have blotted them out? (Not that you might care or anything.)

Actually, it's the persona, not the style. I should know myself, since I design characters. And that reminds me... I could help you out by designing various characters to match the various genres of music. Just reply to know more.

P.S. That avatar is giving me a headache... so dizzying...

P.S.S. I'll be posting stuff like crazy fall break this week so could you swing by? I know I'm lousy at art but it's eye candy plus I can write good stories and profile designs.

P.S.S.S. Do I write my comments too long?
