Stand Name: Chanel Orange
Wielder: Sarah Leone
Name Origin: Chanel Fashion House; Channel ORANGE: an album by recording artist Frank Ocean
Chanel Orange resembles a spindly, humanoid robot, with a feminine set of hips and pedal-like protrusions coming from the thin neck that leads up to its oblong head, shaped like a pickaxe with a robotic face sticking out of its side, and it’s points jutting out to the sides, reaching to past the shoulders. Its fingers are long, spindly, and thin as razors.
Chanel Orange’s knife-like fingers and moderate speed makes it a somewhat effective fighter, though not as strong as many other Stands.
Lost in the Heat of It All: Chanel Orange has the ability to cast an effect of orange fog within fifteen yards of it. The thickness of this fog is related directly to the temperature of the area around Chanel Orange, with 0 celsius (32 Farenheit) and below being completely clear, a “room temperature” of 23 °C (73 °F) having a visibility of a few meters, and higher temperatures reducing visibility to a few centimeters. This fog affects all Stand users except Chanel Orange and its weilder, and whatever non-Stand users the wielder of Chanel Orange specifies. Possessing the odor of perfume, this fog is said to cause severe anxiety in those caught in it, that grows worse with the heat and thickness of the fog. As neither Chanel Orange nor its wielder is affected, it is the perfect tool for ambush attacks.
(just a rough idea, will add some art to it eventually, hopefully; then send it to the Stand-Stand blog.)
Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:
1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.
First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.
So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose. I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.
Scribble it down
start to put on features
put on more stuff
fix stuff again
erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring
Whole head is a gesture!
2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first. You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.
So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.
That’s the simplest explanation I got. Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!
what do you mean a thesaurus isnt a dinosaur
this is adorable as fuck and you can’t tell me otherwise
