The Let's Play Heroes by Mightyboy7 The Let's Play Heroes by Mightyboy7
There isn't a whole lot of Retsupurae fanart around, so I thought I'd try to draw three of their most popular targets, BillyMC, Musclebomber2021, and ElectricalBeast. Instead of going for a realistic interpretation of their real-life appearances, I went with the "joke" descriptions.

Also check out this one. [link]

All I have to say is that Electrical Beast looks perfect. Anytime I listen to him, I picture his voice coming from the body of a small, eccentric, yet well-dressed English gentleman with a penchant for video games.

 

And of course, the others look good as well! You did a good job at capturing the personalities of the meek yet loveable BillyMC and the meat headed, yet fun and boisterous Musclebomber2021!

Actually I kinda pictured them the same way. Although I imagined musclebomber to be Hulk levels of buff.

I just realized that the ElectricalBeast's shirt looks a little like a jolteon. Nice!

ElectricalBeast passed Bowser's Evil Test and defeated Bowser himself with thanks to the Time Gods for giving Mario the ability to rewind time (which he could use only once). Gotta give him credit there. XD

This is great! I just recently got into the whole Retsupurae videos and have really been enjoying it (I also saw your Retsupurae villains video too, I kind of imagined Navgtr looking like an older, snootier version of the Nostalgia Critic which is kind of how you did it), I kind of wish you did Omega Edge too, I would have imagined him looking like a nerdy looking guy (kind of like dorkier version of Otacon from the Metal Gear Solid games) with a laptop and having the word "Kaizo" either tattooed somewhere on his body or on his clothes and him exclaiming "This is Cake!" I wish you would also have done the Retsupurae commentors themselves (Slowbeef, Diabetus, Proteus and anyone else). Imagine if all of these character personas all appeared in a Super Smash Bros-like game and they'd have assist trophies of the characters from the games they Retsupuraed like Mario from both Lost Levels (BillyMC's videos) and 64 (Electrical Beast's and Omega Edge's Kaizo videos), Bomberman (MuscleBomber2021's Super Bummerman video) and items would include Bomberman's bombs and McDonalds foods

Thanks! Actually, my drawing of Navgtr is based on his real appearance. Retsupurae did a video where he shows his face, so I guess I cheated a little. I do want to try drawing Omega Edge, although I imagined him also wearing a bunch of chain chomp-related clothing. I'm not sure if I'll draw the actual commentators though. I think of them as the "normal" ones, whereas each person they make fun of has some sort of fun, exaggerated gimmick to work with. And I do really like the idea of all of them being part of a big game or storyline, just because their personalities are so distinct. I feel like there's so much that could be done with them.

I can imagine Omega Edge with a Chain Chomp on a leash. I'd also like to see how you would draw NostalgicRageHQ as well, I imagine him as this sort of punkish character with a very angry expression a censor bar over his mouth to "censor out" his swearing and explosive flatulence coming out from behind him LOL. I've been going through some of the Retsupurae videos and they just entertain the heck out of me. Are you considering doing any of the other people that Retsupurae has watched?

Have you seen the Metal Gear Solid video where the guy's stuck in the first room, and the LttP video with the bad framerate? Those are two personal favorites of mine. I might draw more RP victims, but it might be a while. School has been keeping me pretty busy.

I always imagined EB like a pile of scarfs and a hat with two luminous eyes underneath and the cable for a game controller coming out. Dunno why.

But I love these three, if you've seen billy's non-retsupurae videos, it turns out he's the LP community's idiot savant. He DESTROYED Ninja Gaiden and Castlevania, it was glorious.

This is awesome! There needs to be more fanart of these guys, especially ElectricalBeast. He's just unbelievably British lol. But he's such a lovable, magical British elf that I just smile to myself and laugh whenever I think about his LP's.

Oh, and I believe Musclebomber still has a DA account around. Someone needs to show him this, to see what he thinks lol.

I guess they're just going for hypocritical humor, but actually you CAN hear when they are fond of someone, just like the three guys above. I'm pretty sure they only hate really incompetent/arrogant LPers for real, while Slowbeef and Diabetus are amusingly incompetent. Their Metroid Prime trilogy material is comedy gold for that exact motive... and their Ridley voice as well. "HOW YO' DOIN' SAMUS"

:iconmightyboy7:
Mightyboy7 Featured By Owner May 14, 2011
Yeah, I've watched some of their Metroid Prime stuff. I wanted to yell at the screen at the first part where Slowbeef couldn't find an obvious door, but as a whole, it was still pretty hilarious.

:iconmadsurge:
MadSurge Featured By Owner May 17, 2011
I did get angry at him a few times too, but the continuous banter between him and the guests is what makes it funny. Also, I was about to react as apathetically as he did to the whole second game. Torvus Bog is where all good gaming goes to die, and it shows!
Reply
:iconmightyboy7:
Mightyboy7 Featured By Owner May 17, 2011
Yeah, they made even the worst parts of the second game still entertaining.

As a level, I thought Sanctuary Fortress made up for everything though.

Just going through them. I just wish they didn't cram all the interesting ideas in the third zone when there's the serious risk that people were turned off by the other two!
I thought Slowbeef was about to cry when he implored Chykka not to fly...

I would love to see your interpretation of Corshaq or Rijno, even though Slowbeef and Diabeetus aren't pleased with their work.

What I find amusing about their commentary on Cornshaq was that they were complaining that he never STFU while they complain just as much about LPers who don't talk at all. I conclude that Slowbeef and Diabeetus are very hard men to please.

I love this pic too by the way. :)

Haha, thanks. I have thought about attempting some others, but I'm not sure when I could get it done.

Yeah I've noticed that, but I guess sometimes they have to look harder for things to make fun of, just to keep it interesting. Their own LP's aren't exactly perfect either, lol.
