I think the picture explains it enough. I am actually REALLY proud of my entry. If nothing else, people, I got my art funk back! WOO WOO!
I took some of my favorite color combos, mixed it with my love for living ties and then poured into a AWESOME PILGRIM MOLD!
Back story? Well? I can see that Ramona was snatched up for her good looks by this loser. After a whirlwind of money, glamor and fame...she wanted to fall off the map. He offered her anything she wanted, offered to MAKE her a goddess of the magazines...and still she left him. That is when he took up the occult and created his legion of possessed high fashion...! I think the huge chain is his necklace re-sized. HE WILL HURT YOU AND LOOK GOOD DOING IT!
Worship the bringer of Pilgrim! All belongs to him! Art belongs to me.
EDIT: THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT! I MADE IT TO THE SEMI-FINALS! EDIT: Just realized I didn't update that I won 2nd. LOL I WON 2ND! THANK YOU EVERYONE!
Powers: Using music and sound to boost stats and deliver powerful sonic attacks. Cruise knows the perfect song to play for any situation, his thousands of hours spent cruising the internet for unknown bands lending to his superior song selection (surprising, as he makes such a "meh" DJ).
GEAR/ARMOR: Cruise contains constant music flow via headphones or built in speakers located in his backpack and gloves. When concentrated, the bitter, hateful sounds can empower Cruise, giving him increased speed and strength. He is also able to physically condense the sound waves into Orbs using his speaker gloves, which upon impact, smash his opponents square in the mouth, sending them reeling.
Fun Fact: Cruise's real name is Hadrian.
Cruise and Ramona met during their freshman year in college. During those fragile first few weeks away from home, they became inseparable. After a semester or two though, like most first year acquaintances, they realized they had literally nothing in common. The relationship remained stable till Ramona met Roxy. She left Cruise shortly after that.
Crushed, Cruise careened into an emotional psychosis. He stayed up night after night, trying to find the perfect song to fuel his anger, or say what he needed to win Ramona back. THAT song never came, but what Cruise discovered was the other powers the songs granted him.
Cruise seethed for 5 long years, doing nothing with a useless Bachelors Degree, DJ'ing at night to pay the bills. One night, during another mediocre set, he was approached by a well-dressed dickhat by the name of Gideon Graves. He told Cruise that he was forming a team of Exs to crush Ramona Flowers and her current boyfriend. Cruise, feeling the familiar rush of jealousy and anger, casually brushed it aside. Leaving a card as he left, Gideon flicked the hair from his eyes, turning as he said, "Roxy already said yes..." Cruise jammed the business card deep into his pocket, collected his gear, and stormed home.
Weeks later, during one of his bi-monthly laundry runs, Cruise came across the crumpled business card he'd jammed into his pants pocket months ago. A pay-phone call later, Cruise was on the next bus headed for Toronto, ready to finally end Romona, Roxy, and most of all...SCOTT PILGRIM.
Geeked out big time making this. Full of Street Fighter Reference.
I had a BLAST making this. I could have spent hours more, but all good things must come to an end. To Bryan Lee O'Malley, Edgar Wright, Nigel Godrich, Anamanaguchi, Ubisoft Montreal for the video game - EVERYONE involved in the Scott Pilgrim Experience....THANK YOU! It's been a pleasure to share and enjoy with others, and I look forward to enjoying it for years to come.
I'm one of the few participants to have drawn a character in suit, glory to the gentlemen! Anyway, that's the only character I was able to complete for the contest. I was sick for an entire week and I went to New York the week before so I didn't have a lot of time to draw more than one. At least, I took my time with that one and made something good, in my opinion.
This is my signature character, The Gentleman with low quality/unoriginal presentation with a stat sheet for the character... Not MY stats even if some are the same has mine.
No backgrounds since people usually don't read that kind of thing. Stats are swell though.
Okay so, story-wise, I wanted to be true to 's way of placing himself and everyone in his past into the story by putting myself as the evil ex-boyfriend. (sort of)
I didn't actually get depressed over a pretend wedding in kindergarten or anything, but Gary Stu is actually just a crazy manifestation of myself back in highschool. I wasn't very forgiving, I was paranoid, and I was desperate to get my beard back, haha.
I also sported every wristband from every Hot Topic ever.
FREAKING WRISTBAND SLEEVES, MAAAAAN
SO YEAH, I hope you enjoyed my silly Contest entry!
I wanted to take part in the DevinatArt Contest so I looked through my gallery to find a picture I can draw again. But then I realized that the deadline of the contest is too close T_T and that I won't have time for drawing until october or something like this T_T... And then I saw this two pictures and well... I didn't know that I already drawn a picture twice O_O!!! I really didn't know this O_O.
I'm actually not sure whether it's okay to contribute this two pictures to the contest or not, because they are both really old and there are only 10 day betweent them ^^''. But I just want to try it. If it's not possile, DA can throw them out of the contest :3.
since "full view" doesn't work, download please. and be sure to scroll all the way to the left before reading.
I've been fooling around with this idea since I heard about the contest. Cause I just KNEW tons of people here didn't know how to count. 8 comes AFTER 7! So Ramona's 8th evil ex should come after Gideon, the 7th! And this story was the best way to get an 8th "boyfriend" into the universe.
I also wanted to give O'Malley something neat to read. A lot of the entries are kinda just..awful. No offense if you made an awful one. And not saying mine looks that great. Infact it didn't turn out visually at all how I wanted it. But I had to draw this in two nights, what with my school and work schedule, to get it submitted on time. Winning one of the prizes would be really awesome but I mostly just want O'Malley to read it.
anyway, , I hope you enjoy reading this little fan comic thing. Love your stuff and good luck looking through a million drawings of an evil Scott.
edit: I changed it from horizontal to vertical, it seemed not a lot of people were bothering downloading the image to see it :/
And I guess I should talk a little but about the evil ex. I didn't give him a name, I didn't think he needed one. He was a nameless stepping stone on the way to Toronto. But I guess he can be named...uh... Reese Cooley. Go ahead and name him after my friend Maurice Cooley. Cooley has "cool" in the name which this made up evil ex so is not.
His "powers" are his parents' money. His dad owns a dealership and pretty much bails him out of everything. He coasted through college this way too. He uses his parents' money to buy those robot duplicates. I guess I should've made that more clear, but the flow of the comic didn't call for it.
As every evil ex has a video game element to them in a way that they're defeated, from a BONK headbutt to Chrono Trigger double tech, so I had to have one for this evil ex as well. I went with Megaman because it's a game that is somehow not represented in Scott Pilgrim in such a fashion. So him stepping on the pin is equivalent to that of a spike (instant exploding death). You know, in case the other really heavy Megaman references weren't doing it for ya.
This is my entry for Tomb Raider contest. In this drawing I've tried to depict a Lara who summons up her heart to obtain the courage and the strength to face the adverse situation she finds herself in.
