Night Time Skydiving Ping Pong

This is my entry for :iconwhitewolfstar0310:'s contest. So the wolf on the right is her character, Star. The chick on the left is my character, Mögomo the vixen.

The theme of her contest was to draw them having fun... so I drew what sounded like fun to me right then & there: skydiving while playing ping pong!
Well... actually that wasn't my original idea :icondragonxpplz: At first I was going to draw them playing polo with horses in the air, then I was going to make the horses pegasi & maybe make a pony reference. So I guess that's 20% of cool this pic will never have. :icondashwhateverplz: Then my dad suggested ping pong, & I figured that would be easier to draw... & it probably was! :la:

Also that tank with a parachute is a reference to one of my favourite scenes from the A~Team movie. [link]

& the car is a possible reference to an 80's movie I've never seen but saw a spoof of on Family Guy. Either that or a commercial that was tested by the Mythbusters. {that was suggested by :iconnorbertliebe:. spank you very much, by the way! :meow:}

The background pic {the sky} is actually a picture of one of those massive dust storms {haboob} that we were having out here in Arizona... but I added a lot of effects to it in Photoshop to make it look like a night sky. Pretty nifty, huh? :iconursarcasticplz:

Hope you like it, I went through a lot of crap to make it! :iconnghplz: No, really. I originally drew some of this on paper, & traced it on my Wacom Tablet... but the drawings ended up pretty damn huge in Illustrator. I didn't try to shrink it, I just made the artboards bigger to accommodate it, so the picture's dimensions were some ungodly number. Eventually it got to the point where Illustrator quit out every time I asked it to open the file up. It finally opened up on a friend's computer, so I exported it as a picture, & finished it from there.
Also I was sick & had a headache for most of the time I used to draw this picture, which made it seem like a little more work than it probably really was. ^^;

Also, I listened to Röyksopp while I drew Mögomo. That kind of music makes me think in colours, & I was actually still designing her, so that's why she's so colourful. Please tell me what you think of her! :eager:

Star belongs to :iconwhitewolfstar0310:,
& Mögomo belongs to :iconbrockthebrick:.

Ping pong- 1;
linear acceleration and gravity- 0

@Video: Yeah, cause just saying 'screw gravity' will automatically cancel it. I hope he says 'scre friction' too or else... he's gonna have a bad time stopping in the atmosphere when he reachest minimal velocity.

& according to the same guy who made that video {the original}, if you kick a little girl, she will fly into space. :iconouterspaceplz:
MartyBeaver's avatar
So he cancelled both friction and gravity.
BrockTheBrick's avatar
Yep, pretty much. :iconawesomefaceplz:

But not linear acceleration and inertia !

Wow! very nice job! It looks like you put a lot of work into it! I was also wondering if I could draw Mogomo (sorry couldn't put the umlaut on the o) some time. :D
BrockTheBrick's avatar
Yeah, absolutely you can! :w00t:

{BTW, you just copy & paste the ö to make it like that. that's the only way I know how, I don't have a button for it on my keyboard ^^;}

I dunno. :hmm: Anything you want I guess. ^^;
BrockTheBrick's avatar
Hmm, :iconthinkingplz: how about a dragon! :icondragonlaughplz: Any dragon in particular you'd like me to draw?
