Was delayed by few weeks. was supposed to get this one up at the end of borderlands but well sister + parents = not conducive environment to draw.
Cause well, It's good to spend time with them instead
Anyway now that I'm back to my own devices again, the trickle of nonsense that I make is comin forth more.
All based off true events in the game itself. And yes, before we got two cars my sis was on top navigating while I was driving. Cause she tends to drive off the map and kill us. But I tend to happily careen off course to squish skags
har har har.
And yes, the triple-barreled flaming rokkit launcha is fun. Unfortunately I didn't manage to find any of the legendary rokkit launchas (such as the redemption... a parody of the "redeemer" of unreal tournament) but the flamin' rokkit launcha did suffice to the end of the game.
Not to mention that hearing people scream and do da burny dance is strangely satisfying.
I've never played Borderlands so I had to go with my gut when drawing this simple, boxy character (thank God the requester posted a reference). As I understood it, the Claptrap is the comic relief of Borderlands but I didn't know how much personality they had. Responses after the image came up revealed that they had very little, which seems to be a shame.
Not much to really say about the image really, though I've figured that the slight above angle actually makes the Claptrap look sillier, as if the viewer were seeing it as a child.
These goddamn French robots, man. They stole my heart and now they won't give it back. >:I
You know, I'm surprised this is the first time I've drawn them. I've been in love with them since first seeing their "One More Time" video. But what really sold me for life was seeing them live at Lollapalooza '07. Best. Day. Ever.
Gracias a todos por el aprecio que le estan dando a mi creación, gracias a ello estoy teniendo buenas noticias, mi imagen a si usada para una pagina de "Joblo que es arte alrededor de la net" tambien fue usada recientemente por un dj para un remix de daft punk mis mas sinceras y agradecidas GRACIAS
omg my childhood! this show! Aaaaah! (I need to rewatch ALL OF IT)
When I was a kid Pokemon came on our local TV station and of course, we ALL watched it. However, when the first season drew to a close and Ash and his team moved on to the orange Isles.. ....I realised that the show wasn't going anywhere. I'd been anxious to find out certain loose ends regarding Giovanni, Ash's dad, Getting the last badge etc etc.... ....and it led to NOTHING. And I realised it never WOULD lead to anything. I stopped watching about 2 episodes into the Orange Isle season.
And then MEDABOTS hit our screen! And omg you guys... I have NEVER bothered to watch Pokemon ever again! Medabots is just SUCH a better show! Ikki is a medabot owner who actually KNOWS what he's doing in battles and is very smart. He knows all about the different medabots, what their strengths and weaknesses are and his drawbacks are not from how big an idiot he is, but rather being underpowered against and opponent, being overconfident or, sometimes, Metabee just not listening to him. Metabee also actually has a personality beyond being a blobby cute yellow thing that makes noises. He's loud, obnoxious and extremely stubborn but he's also brave, loyal and sticks up for people (or medabots) weaker than him.
Also, there's a REASON the kids fight their medabots beyond you know... animal abuse. In the show, Medabots are TOYS. Sure they have personalities and the kids bond with them, but even with AIs they're still toys and not WILD ANIMALS.
And there's a REASON Metabee is different from other medabots and why he doesn't like Ikki at first and refuses to take orders! And there's an entire STORY ARC in the first two seasons that actually LEADS to something and has a CLIMAX. And we actually LEARN the answers behind some of the mysteries set up in the show.
GAH! This show was so cool ;____; So much more interesting than the Pokemon cartoon! I WISH it got as much recognition and love!
Also... cute yellow 3' tall robots who love watermelon and click when they're angry.
Pokemon is cool and all.... but compared to the show... yeah I like my ancient civilization apocalyptic ghost in the shell sci fi robot cartoon.
......the third season of Medabots sucked ass though.
I've always thought it would be cool if the Glatorian Legends were a bit more... legendary. In this case, Vastus is an ancient jungle warrior, covered in plant life, deep in the forest around Tesara...
I sent a poster of this to Brickfair, but I'm going to need to print it again, because that one turned out really dark unless you look at it with just the right light, the green is really dull and really dark, almost black.
Y aquí está por fin. Como ya anunciaba hace unos dias les presento mi versión o más bien adaptación del famoso Bender B. Rodriguez, el personaje más carismático de la serie y también de los más queridos. Este robot que se comporta como un humano además de ser alcohólico, deshonesto, perezoso y muchas más actitudes negativas, es el mejor amigo de Fry y cocinero de la empresa Planet Express.
Como decía, es el que más me ha costado versionar y se me ha resistido ya que tiene una forma tan definida y marcada en el público que a mi modo de ver solo admite ligeras modificaciones, pero rediseñarlo creo que haría perder todo lo que es Bender, de hecho sería directamente otro personaje.
Con esta entrada acaba la primera serie de ilustraciones basada en los personajes principales de Futurama, espero que la hayan disfrutado lo mismo o más que yo creándola.
And here it´s at last. As announced a few days ago I present my version or rather adaptation of the famous B. Bender Rodriguez, the most charismatic character in the series and also the dearest. The robot that behaves like a human as well as being an alcoholic, dishonest, lazy, and many more negative attitudes is the best friend of Fry and cook of the company Planet Express.
As I said, is that cost me more versions and I have resisted because it has a definite and marked so the audience that I see it supports only slight modifications, but I think it would redesign all that is losing Bender in fact be directly another character.
This entry ends the first series of illustrations based on the main characters of Futurama, I hope you have enjoyed the same or more than I do creating it.
This was commissioned by *Dd4RrI3n, and he wanted me to draw Ezio on the edge of a building with Spiderman, Spawn, Batman, Goliath, and someone else (I went with Cole MacGrath) waiting impatiently for their turn.
A little sketch for the uhhh.....military.......>.>.......<.<
I think I've been getting better with my mechanical designs.
Anyways METAL GEAR ONGEAL! He's like a combination of Ray, Rex, and Jehuty.
Alright, maybe the military isn't making Gundams. So why don't they make Metal Gears? I've posted many topics and threads asking people "Do you think the military could make Mechs?" And people always reply with, no it would be to visible and there would be no point in it. But I have now come up with pros
High maneuverability and mobility
Vast weaponry range. A bipedal tank could hold more when you think about it
So I wanted to get some more drawing done today but I have been sick since last Thursday with some kind of stuffy head cold or some such. The cold medicine is working but it’s just been dragging me down the whole weekend and I can’t really get anything done that I want to. Ughhh I just want to go back to normal. I had planned on doing some pre drawings for some paintings but instead I just decided to sketch, as I would feel at least a little productive, and watch Monday Night Football. Pretty good game actually, if I can’t root for my Broncos then I can always watch some Steelers ball.
So I guess I wanted to design my own Metal Gear when I got to sketching. It’s a transforming model much like the Shagohod but it only turns into a tank with treads and back to a bi pedal robot. I'll do a ver of it in the "Tank" mode tomorrow when I feel better.
I always remembered it being mentioned in the Metal Gear Solid 2 that there were other “boot leg” permutations of Metal Gears being produced around the world so I just wanted to play around with that idea. Just having some fun. I think I will dub it “METAL GEAR KAPPA”
“There’s no reason why only a handfull of mutants should have all the fun in newly forged Transformer gear. To that end, while paying a midnite “visit” to Reed Richards’ lab, Deadpool decided to join the party by “borrowing” Johnny Storm’s bike and fixin’ himself up a nice Ducati style Transformer alternate form, complete with a muffler blaster and twin katanas.” CCs welcomed
Deadpool will be up for auction Monday night. Check out my ebay page for weekly auctions. [link]
Had this head design in my head so I decided to sketch it out, and it turned out completely different than what I had in mind (original idea was more bird-like, like a vulture)....but I like the outcome either way, sometimes the best way to come up with ideas is by accident...really liked the style I got going here to, perhaps with some less obvious linework next time
AS IF HIS DESIGN ISN'T ALREADY OBNOXIOUS ENOUGH....
So I saved this blank meme awhile ago... I've been wanting to do it ever since, but I've been having more important things to do. I still technically have more important things to do, but it was a nice little, late-night break.
So, yeah! Here's Sock! In a plethora of styles.
Also, FUN FACT: I didn't use any reference for any of these styles AND IT SHOWS and I think they all came out pretty decent. For once I'm not going to knock my own art. XD
NORMAL: here's the messed up part: I started trying to draw him in my own style and I just COULDN'T. So I figured I'd work my way through all the other styles to get the excitement of trying them out of my system, but then I DID THAT... and I STILL couldn't draw him in my own style. xD WHAT DOES IT MEEEEAAAN so, have some copypasta'd Sock.
ANIMU:THIS ISN'T SOCK, THIS IS A GIRL. I think he makes a pretty adorable anime character. Of course maybe that's because when I first thought him up my style leaned more towards anime/manga anyway.
CHIBI: I 'unno... kinda the same thing. There's so many different STYLES of chibi. And Anime. So... yeah, I dunno. Just going for that doodly, personal feel that you see in the back of a lot of mangas where the mangaka would do some little... I dunno... personal... doodles....
SIMPSONS: IN MY DREAM WORLD, the Simpsons is still animated by Klasky Csupo. Nothing against Film Roman whatsoever, I just... I really REALLY like the first few seasons. They were still trying to solidify the style and you can definitely see where the current models sprouted from, but the Klasky Csupo stuff is so raw and rough and they're clearly incorporating the bold, crude asthetic of Groening's comics.... and it just STUCK with me. In my mind the Simpsons still have overly obnoxious rounded teeth and you can sometimes see the ear on the other side of their head EVEN WHEN THEY'RE IN 3/4 VIEW. And the animation isn't totally stiff as all shit. That's MY Simpsons.
SOUTH PARK: Funny how half of my gallery is South Park fanart and yet this is probably the first time I've ever really tried out a legit cut-out SP style. xD Sock's unnecessarily layered clothing would probably lend itself nicely to the climate of a Colorado mountain town.
DISNEY: This is tricky, 'cause like I was saying earlier, Disney style in itself has all these sub-styles. Different eras filled with different animators and small tweakings to the style from film to film to fit a certain overall feel.... Like have you ever noticed the overt use of curly forms in Hercules? They do little things like that all the time. Anyway, the Disney style I was TRYING for is that older.... kind of... Sword in the Stone-y, Jungle Book-y, Robin Hood-y.... one. I want to say Milt Kahl, specifically. I don't think I really achieved what I was goin' for but whatever. That's my favorite Disney sub-style. XD That and Ub Iwerk's stuff!
MARVEL: This is EVEN TRICKSIER than Disney, because I'm not nearly as familiar with all of Marvel's stuff. But if you look at the art over the years, there are obvious style-changes and even within certain periods, each artist has their own unique take on the characters... In general, I think Marvel's work is phenomenal... But I don't know nearly enough about the artists to try and mimic them. So I just went for a kind of typical, Western comic book style. Lots of hatching and linework.
MUPPETS: FUCKINGFANTASTIC that I'm going through this retardedly profound Hensongasm right now, huh. XD The majority of my life I've been far more interested in their Creature Shop work, but lately I'm into the whole foam-and-fleece-and-ostrich feathers thing. Sock would probably actually be a SOCK PUPPET can't believe I just said that live-hand muppet, but I GAVE HIM ARM RODS BECAUSE I ALWAYS THOUGHT THEY WERE FUNNY. They don't go out of the way to hide the arm rods and it was always noticeable but somehow never ruined the illusion...? Also he has an eyebrow mechanism. xD I can't think of any Henson puppets where you actually SEE the eyebrow mechanism, but you can see Sock's. Because WHY NOT.
Our latest project! Catherine, from... Catherine. LOL. Jey teased her before on her Tumblr with her clothes, but this is the first time I've taken a photo of her completed~ Her hair was a little difficult to do, but we managed it. Well, Jey did, because she did all the work. LOL. This is also the first time we utilized one of the photo spaces in Volks's stores. This one was in the Akihabara store. It was fun!
