Vanessa's Night Job - Don't Call Mary a Rat by AnthroLoverJay Vanessa's Night Job - Don't Call Mary a Rat by AnthroLoverJay
This is a long delayed pic which I initially intended to enter into a FNAF (Five Nights at Freddy's) fan contest hosted by :icondigital-decker: several months back. The idea was simply to draw one or more of her FNAF fan characters either in a scenario or just posing. For this I chose her OC Mary the Mouse. Unfortunately, due to a date mix up, I missed the deadline and lost motivation to work on it until recently. At least I finally finished it. ^^; Plus we're approaching October, so I think the timing's appropriate.

Here we see my mouse OC Vanessa (aka V from Rodent Alert!) complaining about her new job as a night guard at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, which her brothers convinced her to take so she could earn some extra money. Unfortunately, there was nothing in the description about being stalked by bloodthirsty animatronics. One in particular being Mary, a decommissioned mouse who accidentally caught fire during a performance (hence her state of disrepair). Now she waits until night to sneak out of her closet and actively mess with any guard who happens to be on watch. In addition, she really hates it when people mistake her for a rat. Looks like Vanessa lost track of her. Better watch it with that flashlight, V. Your tail is in the perfect position for Mary to snag. :fear:
I've been wanting to do a FNAF based pic for a while now (I'm a big fan of the series), so I had fun working on this. I figured Vanessa would be appropriate to include due to her and Mary technically being the same species, and it gave me an excuse to draw her in some more casual wear. Note she removed her eye makeup and gloves. I gave Mary a very damaged appearance to enhance the impending danger. Bonus points if you picked up on the "Easter eggs" from the series. ;)

EDIT: I've decided to now make this a series of pics showing each consecutive week Vanessa is on the job. :)

Week One: You're here.
Week Two: Vanessa's Night Job 2 - The Stress Buster by AnthroLoverJay
Week Three: Vanessa's Night Job 3 - The New Guy's Concerns by AnthroLoverJay
Week Four: Not here yet.

I will begin with saying that I adore the job you did on the lettering. It is so clear and easy to read! I wish I was capable of producing a handwriting like this one. I also admire the way you portrayed the characters. Their anatomy looks quite good (even though Vanessa’s long muzzle and small, pointy ears make her look a little bit more like a possum than a mouse) and Mary looks creepier than ever before. However, I am a little bit confused by the animatronic’s tail. It appears to be made of metal, but bends and behaves as if it was constructed of rubber or even actual flesh. The other thing that bothers me is the fact that the shading on the characters does not seem to match the light source the flashlight is. Moreover, I think that it is a bit of a shame that you decided to leave the most of the background pretty much empty. Even a blurry outline of the rest of the room would make the artwork look more interesting.
What do you think?

Animatronic Mice tend to scare me the most... O_O (Take Mitzi Mozzarella for an example O~O)
Nice job! ^^

Before reading your post, I had never even heard of Mitzi Mozzarella, but now that I've looked her up I sympathize. She looks creepy as hell! :O
Thank you! :)

VANESSA: You think it's messed up just looking at those godforsaken mechanical abominations? Try working a night job where you're stalked by them for six hours. :P

VANESSA: Say what?! :O

(She whirls around just as Mary is about to grab her by the tail! The mechanical mouse is ready to strike when your flashlight hits her square in the face, damaging one of her eyes. Partially blinded, she wildly flails about with sparks flying! Vanessa is ready to make a run for it when she notices the hole in Mary's chest with some exposed wires hanging out. Thinking fast, she spots a crowbar lying on the floor near Mary. She quickly snatches it with her tail, swiftly reeling it in until she can wrap her fingers around the metal bar. Vanessa hops up just as Mary's getting ready to strike again.)

VANESSA: Claw this, bitch! :rage:

(Vanessa skewers the bar deep into Mary's chest, twisting it until she hears a pop! With a burst of sparks and a puff of smoke, the animatronic's eyes dim, and she collapses on the floor.)

VANESSA: (wiping her brow) Whoo! That was a close one. Thanks, buddy. I owe ya one. ;) Are you all right?

Mary is the damaged, bloodthirsty animatronic. I think you're referring to Vanessa.

VANESSA: Hey! Who's that over there? Show yourself!

Uh oh. I think she heard you.

(The Mary animatronic begins slinking back into the shadows, not wishing to attack while another person is in the room.)

VANESSA: Open? All of the doors to this place are supposed to be locked from the outside. :? Those people can be so irresponsible. :roll: Just think of what might happen if one of those robots where to leave the building! :doh: And as for seeing them, you can come back during the day when this place is actually open. I'm working the shift here and no one is allowed in the building outside of authorized personnel, and I know for a fact that doesn't include you, Wolf Boy!

This drawing you've done based on such a scenario from the FNAF games looks very nice, and good luck to you in the contest as well. :D

Thanks a lot! ^_^ If you read the description, however, you'll know that the contest was several months ago. I had a mix with the due date and missed it. I sort of lost motivation to work on it after that, and only recently got around to finishing it.

As far as my next drawing? Well, I'm planning a big Halloween party pic, but that's gonna take a while. I've been trying to focus on completing previously unfinished pics. I have a few long delayed requests. Not to mention the rest of your characters. Honestly, it's gonna take a little time to decide what I want to work on before I start the party pic.

Best version? You mean best game, yes? I'm honestly not sure which one is my favorite. They all have their pros and cons, but FNAF2 plays the most similarly to the original.
