Alorok's Sketchpad Attendant Collage by Jesoran Alorok's Sketchpad Attendant Collage by Jesoran
Original Sketch Date: July 15, 2014

I started just a simple sketch of the four larger individuals yesterday, but then today it transformed into a collage of many attendants of the stream.  From simple doodles came precise, darker lines and shading.  And it wasn't that many at first, but I kept discovering more and more people as I went through my stream history.  It ended up being a MUCH larger project than originally intended, and consumed all of today's time which was supposed to be spent on another tablet project.  But here it is. 

For most of the attendants I was able to find their avatar or an OC to use, but there were a few others who I took creative liberties with their portrayal.  Here is the list, starting from top left heading right and down:

It's just nice to belong.

As part of my universal beliefs relate to equality in some level, I felt the need to portray many of the fellow stream attendants who were at those first few streams I attended. 

It started as a random sketch of just a few individuals, including some who were going to appear in a project I was working on.  But as I thought about the streams, I began to feel the need to portray more and more people.  Then after I drew everyone, I added shading to give it more punch.  And that's how this came to be.  :)

Which one is mine, if I may ask? Did you portray me, or one of my characters?

(Takes a deep breath)  As I was being rather quick-like in my research of the attendants, I just did a quick look around to see how I could depict them.  For you, I could not find any photos, and I haven't read any of your stories to portray a character from them.  In the end... you are the strange reversed fish with the eyes and mouth located by the large fin.  You are the little guy beside Soylent Orange's (thefwank's) deviantart avatar (winking furred woman).  ^^;

There are a few things about it that relates to you a bit more.  One of them (thought not relating to you personally, but rather by what you pointed out) is the ball in his mouth.  One of the inspirations for the stream project I'm working on now was my incompetence during one of the streams I attended.  Which manifested in the greatest form when I failed to realize there was more chat than I had thought, as the scroll bar was not all the way down!  I had wanted to point out something about Alorok's ball gag, but you had beaten me too it.  Thus in relation to that, is why your fish character has a ball in his mouth.  No straps though, I wanted this picture to be safe.  The other thing I took into consideration was the "Harbinger of Chaos" notion, which is expressed by the sinister expression he has, as well as his rather odd form. 

I was rushing to get the picture done for the night, and my creative energies were running out.  I apologize for the rather odd portrayal.

I was afraid you were going to say that. xD

thanks jes
though I wonder where you found your ref for me XD

Your welcome!  =)

Yours was a fun fabrication of sorts.  I used Eline from as a base concept for the head.  Then I noticed how similar "fodu" was to "fudo", the last name of Akira Fudo from "Devilman".  I decided to use his hair and clothing in the design, and that's how I created you!  =D

This was completely unexpected... I'm quite surprised to find myself in a collage like this, alongside so many others, many thanks!

Your welcome!  =)  It was going to be a smaller project with just a few doodles, but then I felt like expanding the content and filling it out more.  And from there I darkened the lines, did some shading, and voila!  A collage of most of the people who were participating in the first few streams I attended!

Oh wow, this was unexpected. O_O

But I do have to say, damn good job. The combination of different styles is rather nice and good practice, also executed rather well. Alorok looks spot on, as does Lilly, Vioxxious looks quite well also. I really can't say on the others because those are the only two I'm familiar with.

Thank you for taking your time to produce this, it all around looks quite good.
Jesoran Featured By Owner Edited Jul 15, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you very much!  =) 

Indeed, one of the reasons why I enjoy sketches like this is to practice with different styles, see how others draw something and learn from that.  Alorok and Vioxxious were the first two I drew, followed by Nax_Rider and Soylent Orange (thefwank), and the rest coming after that.  Lilly actually took me a while to do.  Something about her style which didn't jive with me when drawing her, mostly her eyes and nose.

I decided to celebrate the stream community that helped inspire me to join deviantart.  =D  It was a fun experience, doing a bit of research and then drawing this out.  Your welcome! Thanks again!
