Jazz Jackrabbit (Merry Christmas!)

Sketch: renovation y u no faster by JemiDove
It was this dude and his videogame series that led me to discover Sonic the Hedgehog. I read one of the developer interviews which mentioned Sonic the Hedgehog as one of the main influences of the Jazz Jackrabbit series...so off I went to research on Sonic. And bam, I became a fan. :la:

I think I discovered Jazz Jackrabbit while searching for PC platformers to play sometime in 2009-2010. I had no gaming console back then and was desperate for platformers to play :XD:

Coincidentally, I came across the "Dust: An Elysian Tail" videogame in 2013, which was designed, programmed and developed by Dean Dodrill, who was the animator for the cinematics of Jazz Jackrabbit 2 back in 1997! :squee: Till now, I still can't believe that one of my favourite animators/developers had worked on two of my favourite games~ coincidence, indeed. :heart: :)

Yeay, I made this in time for Christmas :'D Hope you like it~ I'm very pleased with how I did the pose :D


Time taken: VERY LOOONG, on and off from 15-25 December 2013. Lineart took forever. x_x

I love this artwork you know Jazz would've gotten it's own cartoon series, I for one would think of the concepts of the cartoon series of both Bucky O'Hare and Earthworm Jim an action-adventure-comedy cartoon series with some "The Adventures of Tintin" and "Asterix" elements thrown intoit for Belgian fans.

I would love to see remake of Jazz Jackrabbit(as one single standalone game just like Ratchet and Clank 1 PS4 reboot),maybe trilogy like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon.I also would love to see remake of Jill of the Jungle(just like Nintendo remade Metroid 2 on Nintendo 3DS)At least Jazz Jackrabbit characters skins in Fortnite Battle Royale even for Jill of the Jungle.It's sad Epic Games cancelled Jaz Jackrabbit 3 and Unreal Tournament 2016 aka UT4.

Dear JemiDove,

I am building an arcade machine (bartop) to relive some of my early childhood memories.
The cabinet will be named starcade and is themed accordingly. Jazz jackrabbit is my first videogame
and i would love to have him on the side of my cabinet in the form of a sticker. I guess you can tell
where i am aiming at here. My arcade machine is NOT a commercial product and will not be sold to anyone.
I will probably in time make videos of it on youtube or whatever or note it on my upcoming website.

I want to ask permission to use your design. If so, i will use it as follows:
i want to remove the blue background and logos and enlarge the picture and maybe use a couple of 
effects to keep the quality up as i enlarge (given this is not vector art). Basically, i dont want to see any copyrights
or signatures on my cabinet. If you will allow me to do so, i will give you full credit whenever i will mention the side art,
as i will mention when i will speak of the cabinet and potentially refer to a website or anything of your choice. (little advertising)

As such i will not claim anything of that design or the alterations to it as mine. I will also (of course)
not share this design with anyone else or post it anywhere other than sending it to the company
that will print the sticker for my arcade machine.

Thanks for your time. You can contact me on my email address:   op.genetics@gmail.com

dear regards,

Nick

I'm sorry, but I will not allow that. Who knows, the printing company may eventually save the file and mass-produce it for their own use.

Aw man I remember playing this game with my cousin. We were all over it until we found out about Rayman XD

Though it's great to see you draw this guy. I love the highlighting and shading.

Are you referring to Game Grumps...? I don't follow their videos :P
Or are you referring to something else? :O

Yes, Game Grumps. They recently played this game on Steam Train. :)

Why would you gum up your drawing with the dA watermark?
