80's Anime Tutorial- PSD/MDP included!Hiya!
Some people asked me how I do my 80's anime pictures:
The method has changed every time slightly, especially since I am still trying to perfect it. The most successful are probably both the ones with Shuu (purple/black haired girl)
This is the image I'm basing the tutorial off of:
Personally, I feel like it didn't turn out as nicely as the one of Shuu, but eh, I kinda messed up on the green shirt and the background- it's not as gouachey as I want it to be.
I'll include the PSD and MDP of some of the pictures above so you can reverse engineer/reference them!
You will need:
MS Paint (optional)
Phone with camera (the more horrible the better)(optional)
Now, let's begin!!
Step 1: Ur Sketch
U make it.
While the name was primarily associated with the saint whose image would later become the iconic Santa Claus, for a select number of people the name had another connotation. Related to the figure of its origin it also served as the name for one of the original Aincrad’s optional bosses. A special boss only challengeable during the holiday times, its design a perverted permutation of what Santa looks like it was rumoured to be quite the tough encounter…or at least that’s what the few people who fought it said anyway.
And with the holidays approaching and more and more levels of new Aincrad being unlocked the development team behind ALO decided to release an update on ALO’s website announcing the bosses return. Apparently defeating it caused it to drop no shortage of rare items valuable to any player.
But as the night continued on – three in the morning to be specific – and the silver haired spriggan stood in front of the soon-to-be included bosses spawn point, she let a sly grin crawl across her face.
While most players would be after the loot this monster dropped, she was in the mood for a different kind of Christmas surprise. Currently tapping her fingers repeatedly against a digital console, inputting a complicated series of console commands, additions and alternations to the boss’s code being made.
Since the boss’s lair was established, but the boss itself yet to be included until just a few hours it left its code vulnerable to be tampered with. Most trolls wouldn’t be willing to stay up that late just to mess around…Lotus wasn’t most trolls.
It had taken her quite a while to learn how to do all this, but if the results were to be what she wanted, then it would all be worth it! Typing in the last few console commands before finally completing her hack of the boss.
With the snow falling around her Lotus let a long yawn escape her lips as she stretched her arms. She’d need to wake up in a few hours anyway to see if this really worked, tossing a rare kind of crystal onto a branch on a nearby tree and activating it affect she opened her menu and logged out, giddy with expectations.
Asuna couldn’t help but let a giddy smile crawl onto her face as she logged into ALO, after quickly leaving her cottage and spreading her undine avatars wings, she took off for new Aincrad.
After reading up on ALO’s official website she’d found out that an old Christmas themed boss from SAO had just gotten added to ALO this morning. And with a newfound boss came newfound opportunities to get rare items, thankfully this had provided a solution to a recent dilemma she’d been having.
With Christmas in its latter days she’d been straining for gifts to get for Kirito and Yui, and the rare items this boss was stated to drop all she needed to do was beat it and she was sure to acquire some nice gifts! Continuing her flight to the ever-familiar floating castle in the sky she smiled in anticipation.
Logging in at a near frantic rate Lotus’ avatar spawned inside her house, rushing to the couch she pulled out a second crystal from her inventory. Placing the crystal on the table and tapping her finger on its top a rectangular screen suddenly shot up and began hovering in front of her similar to that of a high definition TV screen.
Letting a relieved sigh escape her lips she let herself collapse in front of the large couch and waited for the screen to finish loading. Once it did, she could clearly see the area where the saint Nicholas boss was programmed to spawn.
Twiddling her fingers together in anticipation Lotus couldn’t help but let an excited smile crawl onto her face as she waited for her traps first victim to show up. After waiting for a few minutes, she was debating whether or not to pull up an article of ALO’s newspaper to pass the time, until she heard a familiar voice echo in her ears.
“Merry Christmas little Lotus!” the hacker flinched as her friend’s voice graced her ears, turning her head to see the slightly older undine woman leaning against the back of the couch. Supressing a groan Lotus placed her arms behind her head, dismissing her menu.
“Merry Christmas to you to Tallia, what brings you to my little neck of the woods?” she asked raising an eyebrow, even though they were friends Lotus had always made a note to keep her guard up around her.
“I just came to say hi is all. So, what’s the deal with this screen anyway?” Lotus let a smile crawl onto her lips at this question.
“Oh, just a little trap I’d whipped up. Call it an experiment.” Tallia’s already interested face turned to the screen, clearly intrigued at what she meant.
“Alright then, what does it do?”
“You’ll see” Lotus said with a grin as Tallia took a seat next to her, eager to see what the girl had come up with.
Dang this place is freezing…I really should’ve brought some cold resistant equipment. Asuna thought to herself as she tried to get the shivering sensation of cold out of her mind, trying to keep her mind focused on only her primary objective.
It had taken her around a dozen minutes of flying and walking but she eventually made her way to the floor where the boss was supposed to spawn. Opening her mini map, she made her way to the marked location.
Finally making her way to the area where the boss was supposed to spawn Asuna drew her rapier and began scanning the area. From the looks of it it seemed to be the exact image of what Kirito had mentioned when he told her about the boss.
A large rounded area blanketed by snow as that very same snow gently rained down from the star covered sky. Blanketing both the ground and trees in a cover of white. Taking careful steps into the boss’s arena as the previous background music she’s been hearing was soon muffled by the howling of the harsh winter wind.
An uneasy rumbling sound began to ripple through the air as Asuna’s aqua eyes began darting back and forth, in search for the source of the sound. After a few seconds the rumbling gave way to a high-pitched howling.
“..?!” Asuna quickly jumped backwards as she saw a large shadow beginning to cover most of the arena as a figure as large as a meteor came crashing down in front of her.
With a deafening loud landing Asuna couldn’t help but let a small grin crawl onto her face at the sight of the boss before her. A perverted permutation of what a normal person would consider Santa Claus to look like Asuna’s couldn’t help but get excited at the prospect of fighting a boss so creepily cool in its design.
Readying herself for a battle Asuna got ready to charge in, wanting to get the first hit in and get an upper hand on the fight she fully intended of getting the best drops from this boss she could ge-
W-What in the world…? Asuna soon flinched in surprise as a wail that sounded more akin to a digital distortion, like raw code being put through a blender than an actual yell from the monster. It only got weirder as the monster soon began to glow a sickening purple, it’s elongated form distorting and spazzing before eventually stopping and retuning to its default animation…it’s sickly yellow eyes now radiating a sinister purple.
What the heck was that?! Was it trying to load or something? Asuna wondered as she shook her head, readying herself as she made sure she was on guard. Was it the bosses old code coming into conflict with the new one? Or was it just some random glitch of the system? She herself wasn’t very knowledgeable in programming so she wrote it off as a glitch…she did admit it was spooky how its eyes glowed though.
“Well either way you’re loots mine!” she declared with a smile of pure excitement while charging towards the boss, rapidly kicking her boot clad legs against the snowy ground she saw the boss lower the large sack it had over its head, ready to bring it down.
Oh no you don’t! Quickly darting to the side, she managed to dodge the gargantuan blow as waves of snow erupted around her. Continuing her rush towards the large boss she readied her rapier for a precise blow on its large belly, until…
“Huh?!” Asuna gasped as a brought red ribbon wrapped itself around her wrist, before she could even question where it came from it yanked her arm backwards. “Gggh!” Letting out a pained grunt she dropped her rapier out of surprise, gasping again she reach over for it only for a second bright green ribbon to wrap itself around that wrist.
“W-What is this?! Let me go!” She didn’t really know why she was protesting, it’s not like the boss would respond but it felt natural. Turning her head to look over her shoulder she could make out two more ribbons shooting out of the opening of the bag. Wrapping themselves around her ankles she could feel herself becoming more and more restricted each second, her barely standing body being slowly dragged towards the sack.
“I gotta find some way to break out! Los va-Mmmmhhh!” The spell she was trying to cast was cut off as another one wrapped itself around her mouth, tightly gagging her. Her last line of attack being cut off she thrashed and squirmed in the ribbons grip, the thin cords feeling more like steel in how strong they were.
“Lllht mmhh gghh!” She holwed as her boots were dragged across the snow, eventually she fell to the ground on her back, the cold of the snow seeping into her body as she wildly thrashed like a fallen snow angel.
“Nnnhhh…stthhhp!” More and more ribbons came flying out of the bag, quickly encircling the young woman’s arms, legs and soon the rest of her body with the exception of her head minus the gag. Within mere seconds she was tightly mummified in the ribbons and being dragged into the bag at a frightening fast rate.
“Nnnnhhh! Hhhllppp!” She tried screaming for help through her gag but to little affect, more and more her body was dragged. She screamed, bucked thrashed, pounded her heels against the soft snow-covered ground and tried to wiggle her bound arms and legs in a vain attempt to escape.
Eventually she felt herself being dragged along the hemp cloth of the sack. The pleasant sight of the starry sky now being smothered by a menacing brown as her vision was soon reduced to pitch black.
Closing itself, the girls muffled screams of protests now completely muted by the sack, the large case normally reserved for presents gave off a brief – slightly glitchy – purple glow, as Asuna’s player marker soon disappeared from the map.
“Gyyph!” A muffled squeal escaped Asuna’s lips as she felt her still bound body land on something soft. Opening her scrunched-up eyes, she was soon star struck with a mixture of both confusion and sock at the location she found herself in.
From the red couch she was sitting on, the long table she usually placed tea on when her friends had come around and even the humble looking fireplace. Wait…isn’t this my house?!
She did another look around just to be sure, and sure enough this was her house in ALO, the same house which held so many memories for the player. “Wwwht tthh…?” She mumbled into her gag as she could feel the familiar velvet of the couch against her bare shoulders and arms.
Wait…bare arms and shoulders?
“Wwwhhtt?!” screaming into her now OTM gag she looked down, a slight blush crawling onto her face as she realised the attire, she now found herself in. Gone was her high-level tunic and boots and was now replaced with a rather…different attire.
A sleeveless red and white top with a matching dress dawned her torso, thigh high black tights and red boots with little bells on them now aligned her body. And while the mummification from the ribbons was gone several ribbons still heavily bound her body, from the ones around her wrists, elbows – creating a particularly discomforting sensation – thighs, knees and ankles the bright red ribbons tightly constricted her movements, making her just as immobile as before. a large bush crawled onto her face at this embarrassing predicament, bound by simple ribbons and stuck in this embarrassingly revealing Christmas outfit!
“Gggrrrhhh!” She tried her best to struggle against the insanely strong ribbons to little success, and with her hands tied she couldn’t access her menu. You’ve got to be kidding me! Just what the heck even is this?! Kirito never mentioned this! She internally debated how all of this was even possible, was this just the game designers trolling players? Not even she knew.
The only thing she did know…was that she wasn’t getting out of this anytime soon.
“Bwahahahahaaa! I knew it would work!” Lotus tightly held her sides in a vain attempt to supress the laughter that exploded from her, slight tears in her eyes at the show her little prank had just presented her.
Tallia for the first time in quite a while seemed genuinely impressed about the scene of events that she’d just witnessed, and rather pleased at the fact that Asuna the flash was its first victim.
“My, my quite impressive! So, does the programme just kill her when she’s in the sack?” Tallia asked as Lotus steadied herself.
“That’s the best part! Instead of killing them it teleports the player back to their home base, and even better is that it switches out their inventory for the outfit they would’ve gotten if they beat it…still tied up of course.” Lotus replied with a few giggles as she rested her feet against the table.
“Aaah, and because only people on your friends list can enter your house, they’d be stuck like that for a while…oh man you NEED to teach me how to do that!” Tallia said with excitement.
“Sure thing, though while it sends a player to their established home address…I set a certain exception if it were to recognise two certain player ID’s” she said with a chuckle as Tallia turned to her quizzically.
“Oh, and who might those be?”
“Just wait and-oh! Speak of the devil there they are now!” She pointed towards the screen, both turning their gaze as two figures began treading along the winter landscape.
“A-Are you sure we should try and take this boss on by ourselves Liz?” Silica asked nervously, Pina flying closely behind her.
“Aaw come on, it’s just one boss! Besides we’ve gotten stringer since the days of old Aincrad, so I’d say we’ve got a fair shot. Besides…what’s the worst that could happen?” she asked rhetorically as they both readied their weapons, the boss soon descending in front of them.
Lotus let a large smile crawl onto her face, practically goody with anticipation. Opening her inventory to retrieve a few tools as the battle started. “Merry Christmas to me!” she squealed as the two of them watched in anticipation, soon they’d have their own presents under the Christmas tree.
