Yolla Boy by saint-max Yolla Boy by saint-max
Greetings friends and followers

"Yolla Boy" is an on going project that I have been commissioned to work on last year and later this year. So this is the hero character for this franchise, the concept changed a lot as I started with a very cartoony approach, but later on the client decided to go with a more teen-aged style :S   . nonetheless I like the final result so I hope you like it too.

C&c are more than welcome

the "Yolla" is an old traditional dance here in the UAE, men used to dance with a real rifle but now they replaced it with a wooden one that resemble the shape only.

Yep, the sword dance is from KSA. but yeah as you can see, this character or the concept in general is following the trend here in the UAE where the government is trying to make traditional customs more modern for the younger generation.

oh i see.
i dunno man... i prefer the tradisional sword. there's something mystical about it. 
if u modernize it... it lose that charm...

Well, both are similar in a way, but still I think this is a good example of what you have to live with when it comes to being an artist :P  I never ever thought that I will end up creating a character for a dancer boy >_<
any way, next is Falcon Boy a local super hero, so lets see how that would work out.
