Snipe Crashers - Speed Lancer
November 2008
Wacom Intuos 9x12
TOTAL TIME: ~2 hours

~ClickOutMets commissioned me to draw four Snipe Hunters in the style of Castle Crashers. Second on the list was Speed Lancer, who, as a dragoon, had a lot of details to cover in his dragon armor. The closest corollary we had in the Castle Crashers universe was the hell-bat from the volcano level, so several elements of their design made their way onto his outfit.

In turning Speed Lancer into a Castle Crasher, many of his modern accoutrements were medievalized. Since he is always shown with sunglasses, I knew his eyes would end up like a main Castle Crashers player - dark holes in his helmet. Who knew they would end up as the dragon helmet's nostrils? His lance was a little difficult to translate into Castle Crashers's distinctive style, but I don't think it came out too badly. For a tabard, I opted to give him a simple dragon design. For an animal orb, the Millennimal Jaedron grabbed his tail and rolled up into a wheel. (Agility boost, I imagine)

Overall, this picture took forever to draw. I've been courting a real funk lately, and it's been hard to burn through it. Next up is Sasha Fiero, which will be a challenge, and lastly Mets himself. Stay tuned!
