-Leader of the Clan- by Deus-Nocte -Leader of the Clan- by Deus-Nocte
Something that started as a sketch in AG last night... I was attempting a fullbody Goliath XD

Well, I really liked how it was coming out... so I saved the sketch before the room reset and Inked/colored it in Photoshop. I tweaked him just a little bit, more of how I'd portray him outside the animation.

The BG is warm colors to contrast with his cool ones :3

I personally like how this came out... hope you do too :D

I :heart: your version of Goliath :flirty: I admire the muscular detail and his expression is just great.

I gotta say, Gargoyles is my favorite show :nod: You know how in some shows, the main character or leader of a group is a big brute w/ awesome strength and whatnot? Usually those types of characters annoy me and I'm just "meh" about them, but Goliath never rubbed me that way. He was actually the first Gargoyle I had a crush on, ever since I saw his hair flip up as he roared to the stormy night sky, breaking from that magic curse that was placed on him and his clan ;)

You did an excellent job with this, and it's great to meet another Gargoyles fan :hug:

Deus-Nocte Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Why thank you! I've seen so many versions of him a little scrawny, I had to make my own that actually looked like him...

Yeah, I understand. Goliath is just awesome, though. Despite his strength, he knows when to actually use it. And he won't hurt people who shouldn't... you should really only have strength if you have the morals to know when you should and shouldn't use it.

Thanks a lot, I'm glad you like it! I got back into it this past year, I should rewatch some episodes again sometime. <3

You're very welcome ;) I really admire that you paid attention to his anatomy enough to get it right and true enough to the way it actually is :nod:

I believe that's what I like about Goliath, from a leader standpoint. He doesn't abuse his leadership and like you said, he knows when to use his strength. Like that famous saying, "With great power comes great responsibilty" and Goliath follows that to a T. Happy to know you're rejoining the fandom, too! Did you ever attend the annual convention, the Gathering of the Gargoyles? I'm going this year with a friend for the first time and I'm psyched :excited::boogie: And you know they've released 2 DvDs of the episodes right?

Oh man, I wish I could go. Where's it located at this year? See, only way I could ever go is if it's in my sort of state area. (Nebraska or Iowa really) And I... doubt it'll ever get to be here. ;_;

Yeah, I have both those DVDs. XD I really wish they'd release the 2nd part of season 2 though... ><

This year the Gathering's going to be in Chicago ;) The bid for next year's location is up so who know's where it's going to be. And who knows, you might be surprised and it'll come to Nebraska ^_^ Wanna bid on next year's location and bring it up there??

I wish they'd come out with 2.2 as well T_T Those have most of the best episodes and I'd like to see any new bonus features, too :nod:

Sure, it's definitely worth checking out at least!

It also makes me sad that the series ended after just 2 seasons T_T But at least we have the comics to read since they're the canon continuation of the series, and who knows? Maybe if things get a little better in the sales dept. of Gargoyles stuff, they'll create an animated season 3! Or better yet, a movie XD

:icondeus-nocte:
Deus-Nocte Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2008  Professional Digital Artist
Well, there is a season 3. It's not canon though. XP And that all wrapped it up (too perfectly a happy ending in my eyes. Just like disney) so unfortunately, I doubt there'll be any more animated series. :(

I should really read the comics, but I haven't seen them anywhere. ><

A movie though, that would be cool. And all CGIed, too! That'd be even more awesome... to make them all look real and stuff.

Now THAT'S Goliath! I've seen a few versions where he's somewhat deflated and sullen as of late, but this one is awesome! He stands proud, chisled like a...er...gargoyle, and the wings fit his body structure almost perfectly. He looks a little surprised that someone is sketching him, but other than that, he's clearly made for this shot. There's a reason why a lot of women like the Gargoyles TV show and draw the characters within: buff, handsome guys with wings, with Goliath standing out as the bad-ass of the group. Very well done! :-D

XD Thanks for your comment! I noticed that too; he was always drawn too skinny to be himself! He was meant to have insanely broad shoulders and huge muscles! XP

Heh, as a girl myself, I suppose I got sucked in as well. ;P

Thanks again!

You know what I seldom see? Pictures that do true justice to the trio. Lex has a nimble quality about him, like a small martial-arts expert/goblin, but is always portrayed as the shrimp. Broadway has that macho wrestler/rogue-cop thing going, but always gets that plump camio. Brooklyn always comes out too thin; the guy has an olympic diver or Lance Armstrong physique, wirey but powerful, and the white hair gives him a Billy Idol demeanor. Something should be done to give these three their due.

If I ever draw them, I'll keep those things in mind XD

I think you have to be a very technical and analytical artist to pick up on those things. Not only that, you gotta toss out some knowledge of basic anatomy XD Like the 3 heads for the length of the shoulders rule, that's out the window on Goliath. His is like... 5.

True, but then, we aren't exactly dealing with human heads, are we? Everything about the Gargoyles seem enhanced; their strength, endurance, ability to fly, ability to defend themselves. That's why their ultimate foil is their stone sleep: a time of utter helplessness. With the Gargoyles, I imagine that a few liberties are not only allowed, but also expected. I think that's one of the reasons why the show has attracted such a huge fan-base; the Gargoyles display unequaled power and an almost alien sense of justice and morality, but at the same time, they are so like us in their ability to learn and grow. At least, that's why I enjoy them so much.

Agreed. I remember seeing the show when I was 4 and I loved it. Of course I didn't understand the plot or anything, but the show in general draws in such a big range of people.
