I’m super happy that some folks liked my Queen drawings, so as a bonus of sorts, here’s some old warmup doodles and sketches of her! The April drawings are my first ever attempts at drawing her, the May drawings are messing around with eyes and expressions. I can fill entire pages with silly disembodied faces, don’t even tempt me.
hoo boy finally finished, some sketches I did to test out those Stumpy Pencil brushes which got a little out of hand, but wow this was fun, just lookit how nice and pencily these look! Almost like the real thing!
another character from OFF, The Queen, with some uh, liberties taken. Wanted to draw these ideas out for a while. If you think this is ridiculous, this is uh, kind of the norm for OFF fans and their interpretations. If ten thousand people can draw four-eyed Batters and buff Zacharies, then I can draw Vader as an amorphous one-eyed tentacle-root monster. Hail to the Queen, baby.
Inspired by some of her original concept art by mortis ghost:
Finally got around to dumping the rest of my sketches from my family trip a few months ago.
I was working thru robot personality headcanons hence the writing - not sure why I tried to scribble it out, I was probably indecisive and felt it was subject to change even tho it really hasn't
now if only I could apply that personality to my drawings rather than repeating the same disembodied grumpy face ten thousand times. :|
tried to draw the technology behind his speed thus a poor attempt at a pelvic engine done without reference or competence
oh well, you get the idea, the engine powers his legs which are light and hollow, along with his arms to reduce overall weight. He'd also have a coolant system more advanced than the average bot since he builds up so much heat from friction.
mostly messing around.
a lot of my sketching sessions consist of drawing silly disembodied faces over and over. oh well, it's fun.
oh yeah, my headcanon personality for him is basically as an 'Adorable Dumbass' - destructive, simple minded, naive and childish, but honest, very straightforward and sincere.
tried to make each bot as distinct as possible from one another, hence the leg designs.
hey is that a decent looking hand over there wow nice
Most of the time I was essentially trying to draw the robot masters with unique faces that could be recognizable without the rest of the head.
Oil Man is fun to go more cartoony with and Top Man's just a smarmy ball of fun. (the cleft chin one is Saturn)
I can draw everyone else better than the FLAGSHIP CHARACTER of this series, how depressing.
I thought of robots as Ponies until I thought Eh that's been done, how about drawing them as actual badass robot horses
which was a great idea until I discovered I can't quite draw horses but oh well.
I should try these again, Fire Horse looks pretty bamf.
I forgot to mention most of these family trip drawings were scribbled in an easy chair while watching TV at the same time, which explains the laziness.
I basically ran out of ideas when I got to Cut Man.
okay the rest of these are from an attempt at a Mega Man Horror AU and are pretty nasty...
it's been getting uncomfortably warm lately, one day I doodled these as some stress relief and thought they were interesting.
woke up annoyingly early to catch the 7am Nintendo Direct the other day, so I doodled while listening to this spankin' new Vocaloid song Raspberry Monster while waiting for it to start. The video's pretty rad and I have a soft spot for girls who punch things so I drew this character and liked it, then spent most of the morning messing with it while crying blogging about all the E3 and Nintendo Direct news over on Tumblr. I'll draw her better some other time.
Speaking of E3 - good grief so much craziness! From Microsoft shooting themselves in the foot and Sony subsequently rubbing it in their faces, to new IPs and indie games like Watch Dogs and Transistor, to tear-inducing announcements like Kingdom Hearts 3 (GASP) and Smash Bros. 4, but here's the real kicker:
MEGA MAN! MEGA MAN IN SMASH BROTHERS! Quite literally a dream come true, despairing mega man fans are coming out of the woodwork and rising from their graves over this news! In one minute and a half trailer Nintendo has probably done more for the mega man fanbase than Capcom has in the past 5 years. I could write an essay on how great he looks and how wonderfully Nintendo has done him justice, but in short I'm just ecstatic! (please go watch the trailer it is amazing)
And what's more a Villager from Animal Crossing and of all things, the Wii Fit Trainer are also joining the fray! What a time to be alive! This is pretty much my first time seriously watching and participating in anything from E3, and I'm very happy I did! There's nothing quite like hundreds of people screaming with excitement over video games, no arguments, only joy.
I'll definitely have to draw something in honor of some of these events, look out for that.
Now if I could even afford any next-gen consoles or games...
A quick bust of Elec Man based on a request on Tumblr. Took the opportunity for some quick ink and color practice. Bonus sketch version. I haven't drawn robots in a while and it shows. =/ I'll draw more Mega Man things eventually, I still have plenty of ideas and such.
Most of my drawings lately are sketches and warmup doodles done between actual work so I may as well post the best ones. Done over the past few months, I date almost everything because I like being organized and it's easier to see how I've improved. Yeah it's more things from OFF whoops oh well
giving the batter weird eyeballs seems to be a thing among OFF fans so I practiced painting eyeballs and faces and such
personally I like drawing the ghostly "no pupils + hasn't slept in ten years" look
I was pretty proud of that portrait done in like 20 min
I tried giving him more eyes as a facial deformity or something but it wasn't turning out that well and gave up
bonus filler doodle
not much bro how you doin'
I liked that last sketch so I messed around with it more
I tried drawing cleft/exposed lips since I was still on a facial deformity kick
part of a larger unfinished sketch which wasn't very good
tried the white eyes thing on bad batter with a twist
they are aren't fully white, the irises/pupils are just a very pale grey and hard to see unless looking closely. I kinda like it
sometimes I mess around and draw loose and silly
those hands are interesting
This one's more fixed-up cuz I like how it turned out =]
All were done in Photoshop except the last one, which was done in Flash Cheers!
Came home last night, felt like writing a semi-stream-of-consciousness sorta thing for my amusement at least since I had a really good time. Most of this was written rather late at night, some weirdness shows.
I have a lot of sketches scanned, I'll be uploading them in batches as I fix 'em up. First is more OFF fanart - I haven't even finished this stupid game yet what is this what is my life Nothing fancy here, mechanical pencil and ballpoint pen on printer paper
yeah I draw pretty messy on paper
sometimes I draw things in really sassy poses
yes I studied baseball sock designs it's very important to me :|
some fans like to draw Batter with 4 eyes so I ran with it
that one face turned out bad trust me
sorry I saw this and thought it was funny (and hot?) so um yeah
only half a page so I added filler cake and me dying of embarassment
I've been writing down all the clues I find to help with the puzzles, luckily I've played enough adventure games to make this a habit
Everything here is all pen, no pencil, so I like how they turned out
I am steadily getting better at drawing men's hair, very good
I came up with the weird dress textures while scribbling around and going 'hmm let's try something' and remembering a book by one of my inspirations, The Towers of Numar by Michel Gagne
