In regards to andworldbuildingtoo! “The Cave” is a game available on Steam, a company from Valve that lets you download PC games.
Doodle doodle doodle loodle ledle ladle
As I said before, if you guys have not played the steam game The Cave, for serious you should play it. If you like HORRIBLE PEOPLE like murderous monks, jealous time travelers, dead children, cowardly knights, and the hilarious ways they get what they want, play this game.
And like with everything I had to throw my own guys in.
The Engineer: Architect of his own ambition. Picked on in high school, his path is one of justice and vengeance—but mostly vengeance; help him dismantle the lives of everyone who picked on him—regardless of the collateral damage.
The Soldier: brave, intrepid, willing to die for his cause—well, perhaps the last one isn’t so accurate. Help him sabotage his own company and give out secrets to the enemy to escape with his life—at the expense of his company’s.
The Scholar: Enlightened, intellectual, beyond earthly desires—save for one: love. When he is rejected for another man though, hell hath no fury like a lover scorned. Help him absolutely ruin another man’s life, so he can have the love of his life all to himself.
Skye wasn’t included because it’s against the law for her to be a villain. No I’m kidding I just couldn’t think of anything. She’ll come in a bit.
Oh hello art! How about a midnight post, yes, this is a great idea.
Just some doodles of the main four! They have been going through some development and uh, while not really looking different, I feel like they’re getting a little more depth to them. Especially Niko down there. Harfang never really changes and Eddy is always frustrating me, so they’re losers. Skye though is getting some work and is being quite a bit of fun, really.
Eddy uh, despite being a a real engineer, doesn’t usually wear hardhats, though I’m sure he has a few in his disposal. That was actually an attempt to make him into a character befitting of the Steam game “The Cave” which is wonderful and hilarious and IF YOU LIKE PSYCHONAUTS you should goddamn play that game my sides were splitting. But yeah while I REALLY like the look, the doodle itself didn’t go many places. Might upload the sketch sometime (it also has Niko and Harfang’s incarnations!).
Look at Niko’s sad face, I think someone kicked a kitten or something.
Mike Mignola tutorial, c.1997. I remember liking this so much I pasted the pages straight into my sketchbook
I can think of five or six professional cartoonists whose entire portfolio was cribbed from this one tutorial.
Beautiful stuff, tho, the bit on texture alone is invaluable.
Mike Mignola breaks it down!
Because Tron likes fashion and I like wooing posts.
Hnnnng double breasted military style man jackets how do you know my weaknesses Fwee dear godddd
Actually pretty sick
jesus fucking fuck.
I was actually gonna buy this brand’s coats but they say it’s tight around the arms so i had to pass them up
Amsterdam is turning rainbow for a visit of the Russian president Putin. The council of the city of Amsterdam has decided to hang out the gay pride flag on all council owned buildings and offices, in protest to Russia’s new anti-gay law.
look at the netherlands being sassy
“u think u can ban homosexuality putin”
“did u really think u could get away with that”
“no beCAUSE NOW WE’RE SHOVING RAINBOW FLAGS IN YOUR FACE”
Haha, this was a good action, my country did me proud. Putin just shrugged it off though, didn’t expect anything else tbh. I hope that our Prime Minister will address the issue directly. Speaking of which, I just can’t get over how much our PM looks like a giant next to Putin and how displeased Putin appears to be with that fact.
Spezzy I think your country wins everything now.
Requested as a rebloggable… thing. Did I do a tumblaar right?
You know where it’s at. Learning to let go of perfection and embrace ugliness was the best thing that ever happened to my art.
Of course my last name ends up being the most popular name OVER IN GODDAMN PORTUGAL.
To practice painting I made a bunch of adorable but insecure animals. Poor guys!
oh my god Kacy’s art I can’t take how cute it is ;A;
A couple people asked me how I vary my leaves and trees and honestly, it’s super easy! I’ve never made a tutorial/guide before so I kept this mega simple but I hope someone out there might find it useful at least!
Also, anyone can download the brushes I use for all my art on my tumblr page (: I only use around 5 so go nuts haha
Wow! Reblogging this for reference. I gotta start drawing more backgrounds.
Hey guys! I am again peeking in—but with fewer intentions of dipping back out and disappearing.
I have been away a while! I apologize! :C The reasons were both justified and not really that justified and neither, but I’ll get to that in a minute.
I have been hard at work with a little project of my own. You see, Oddjotts is, as some may remember, on hold for now. On realizing it would be on hold for a while, I realized that I needed something to do, in the meantime; something both casual and to keep me from stagnating, both in art and writing. Being a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, I thought I might both indulge myself, and fulfill my two prior needs—and even experiment in the medium that I hope, ultimately, Oddjotts will eventually be in: animated comic form.
Yeah, okay, cut to the point, I. Made an askblog.
In addition, I thought I might perform a little social networking experiment, testing myself to see if I could reach out, make connections, and keep said connections. I would say it has thus been successful, in art and social networking, though in succeeding there, I have, quite obviously, miserably failed here on this blog. Both because I have a terribly one-track mind, and for other more intimate, personal reasons. One of which being that I was dreadfully embarrassed of saying HI I MADE A MLP ASKBLOG because I thought bad things of you guys which was not nice of me to do!! But with the help of Brian, Amy, and Nancy, offering me new perspective on fanart and fanwork, as well as Kacy helping me realize my being a twat, I have overcome this!! Fanfare!!
So lo and behold, here is my askblog. That is Eddy pony and his name is actually Techno Wizard and he has adventures in the land of magical rainbow unicorns! There’s some supernatural stuff but it’s more akin to Hellboy than horror stories per se, like Oddjotts.
I am mostly there, but as I’ve now revealed the blog, I will probably be here more often too. :> Hope you like!
AW YES IT’S GO-TIME
I’ve probably mentioned this a couple times on this blog, but one of the totally awesome things I’m doing to finish my senior year of college is beginning a nation-wide survey of comic artists and communities. I’m interested in the changes in group dynamics, in artistic influences, preferred media, and even career goals. I want to see where the medium and the artists are headed from the ground-up, and as far as I know there is very little being written about that perspective.
To that end, I’ll be traveling to three cities this spring- Savannah, San Fransisco, and Portland- to conduct in-person interviews. It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional or a hobbyist, if you are interested in talking about your work and your comics community, I want to listen.If you are in these cities and want to be interviewed during my visit, send me a message through Tumblr and we can start making arrangements.
For those of you who are not in these places, or otherwise can’t meet me: I still want to talk to you! I’ll just have to do it through Skype or another online program. For now, my research is sticking to the United States, so unfortunately I can only interview US artists. However, I would love love love to expand this investigation to other parts of the world, so if you have an interest in me researching your area’s comics culture, please let me know!
Even if you don’t fit any of these, please reblog this post so that more people can get a chance to see this message. The more people that I can talk to, the better view I can get. Thank you so much for reading this, I hope you have a great day.
WOAH LOOK AT THIS COOL THING THAT ZEST IS DOING! You should help him! I got interviewed! I KNOW LOTS OF Y’ALLS ARE ALSO ART/COMICS PEOPLE.
(also, Zesty, if you’re ever coming through Indianapolis, let me know and I’ll show you all the good places to eat)
Thank you! 8’D
I am just blown away from the number of responses I’ve already gotten from this post. You guys are so friendly and so frigging talented. I’m responding to notes as fast as I can, but let’s keep it going!
I still need another week and a half before I know exactly what times I’ll be free, but you know I am on board for this, baby! <3 I’m sure most of my followers already watch him, but in case some don’t! This guy is super fabulous and has like the most unique style I’ve seen in a long time! Definitely a guy to meet up with! Also he’s a great big sweetheart. <3
Watch me slink back into the woodwork. %D Just checking in guys! I’ve gotten busy with some stuff, but not really much to report. I did, however, finally pay off my credit card, which means NEW COMPUTER in the next week so happy aaaaaaaaaaa. Finally no more tiny laptops with less than 2 gigs of RAM ;u;
Anyone got any experience with Windows 8?
we’re all getting arrested for this
