I thought of this after reading that Marx and Flandre Scarlet's wings were similar, I kinda got this image stuck in my head. And of course, her theme goes around everywhere, so I couldn't help it.
Gijinka Design notes: Obviously Marx's theme is a jester. An adorable one, not the creepy evil jesters for Halloween, so he has striped leggings and arm..ings.
Color theme was splitting up purple, so red and blue, as hinted by his hat.
I was between making his arms the wings or giving him back wings since he doesn't have any arms in his canon design. I went with the back wings to go with the Flandre parallel, and to keep his stripes on his arms. I like stripes. It was kind of strange to do his wings, because he has those claws and those weird heart lump things. Seriously, what are those for?
I think I'm getting a little better with backgrounds. I'm not hating on this one, mostly because when I was doing the wings, I remembered what the hell a layer mask was.
The lineart for this is also a lot better than the previous submission (Galacta Knight). I think the main reason is that I could rest my entire arm on the table when doing this one whereas with Galacta Knight, I was only resting my hand. I'm not sure if I can do that with my desk at my apartment, but I can always make adjustments to that table.
Favorite point: That ribbon. God damn I can't help but love how it turned out.

This is a quick webcam test I made. I've been wanting to play with the BitmapData funcitons and webcam inputs for a while, but nothing worked and it all always exploded in the end!
Well, I came up with a way to do something, and I wanted to see if it'd work. It's far from perfect, but it does it's job, and I luff it.
What is it, you ask? Cloaking. Not something where you don't show up at ALL, but something where it has a displacement for cloaked objects (anything that moves).
Here's how to work it:
Step 1. Have a webcam
Step 2. Get out of the picture so it's a static background
Step 3. Click the flash -- it should show a visible change form the snapshot
Step 4. That's it, get in the picture and move around! It should be all warpy-ish and displace around moving objects.
Ok so, this is a test to see if i could put together various codes to make something in an adventure game style, that is, to solve puzzles by collecting objects and using them or talking to other characters to progress
so in this little tester, you can control jinx with the arrow keys left and right, collect an object by pressing space (when you're close) and then look at it when it's in your inventory by clicking it, and it will prompt you to use it when it's needed.
Any feedback / comments / suggestions would be very welcome because I'd love to build a full game like this some day
I think this was my fourth or fifth attempt at making pixel art. And my god, did it take forever to finish ._. Right around five hours over the course of three days. Not sure if that's average or excruciatingly slow for pixel art of that size. Oh well. I'm happy in how it turned out.
Why did I make it? Glad you asked that. I have a backloggery page: [link] and I wanted to use a pixel art drawing of good ol' Dragonite. You know, to keep the theme consistent. Failing to find anything to my liking I decided to read up on some tutorials and make it myself.
(lawl, I might make more of these in the future. Pixel art, that is.)
Alright, I will openly admit that I was once a fan of Pokemon. I played two games, the Red/Blue and Gold/Silver. I had my team, and I loved them... a lot. I wasn't the best or the greatest fan, but I wasn't afraid to admit it.
My Pokemon are as followed (let's see if anyone remembers them, since there are so damn many now).
Persian: Galaxia (actually my character was inspired by it... she was originally a Pokemorph...)
Sandslash: Sandrock (thank you Gundam Wing)
Nintetails: Vixen (I know, so original)
Zapdos: Thundara (Thundercats... HOOOOOO)
Now, there are just so darn many... I can't keep track. But I liked the first two sets of games. Hoot! And that's weird alter ego of myself.
