Borderlands YEAH by JohnSu Borderlands YEAH by JohnSu
Next up in Fanart February we have the FPS/RPG Borderlands!

For added experience, listen to this while viewing: [link]
Alternatively (or simultaneously!), you can listen to this: [link]

Normally this is where I would tell you about Borderlands and what I liked about it, but instead I will complain about the character design. Do I hate the characters? No, not necessarily. Do I hate drawing the characters? YES. Oh gosh, the details. They don't look so bad until you start trying to copy them one by one. Or maybe it's because I foolishly tried to do all four characters at once.

I believe all the official non-concept art of these guys are just renders of their models (unconfirmed), because no human being wants to draw them more than once (also unconfirmed). This kind of makes me appreciate video game characters who were designed for low resolution sprite-based technology.

Oh yeah, the game:
Liked it. Played it with my brothers. Had a blast. From what I've heard, the game is not nearly as much fun by yourself, though. I also liked the humor in the game, and it gave me a good chuckle from the start.

Anyhow, just wanted to draw some Borderlands because I thought it'd be interesting to draw some western franchises as well, that being where I live.

I may have exaggerated Brick's size a little.

I love this! Just getting around to playing the first one with a pal, and he hates how I am just railroading stuff as Brick, he keeps saying "you're playing this game wrong. It shouldn't be possible for you to put your gun away and punch Krom's turret from 85% HP down to 5% before it downs you. It just shouldn't work."

There are many games I have played that I have not made art for.

At the time of this submission, Borderlands 2 had not been announced yet.

Fun story: Me and my brother used to play this game all the time. I always a sniping sort of character and he's always a brute. So naturally, it was Brick and Mordecai versus the world. One day he was commenting on the size difference and an idea dawned on me: he would be my meat shield. The idea was a success. He and I would crouch, enter a fight, and while he took the pain I took the gain. Afterwards, I'd split it even and we'd go our marry ways. This image brings back so many fun memories.

This is what they are all thinking based off of their faces:
Roland and Lilith: We're gonna gonna have a little adventure.
Mordicai: Oh, crap.
Brick: I WILL EAT YOU!!!
