Here it is folks!
THE RETURN OF THE COMPLETIONIST!
This week’s game (surprise surprise) is Shovel Knight! STEE THY SHOVEL!
SHULK IS IN SM4SH
So remember, these characters hold a special place in the hearts of children and we need to show them a little respect, right?
Kept us waiting a while, Shulk! It’s time to see what new tricks the defender of Colony 9 and hero of the Homs has brought to the table! Shulk had always been one of our top options, and it’s wonderful to finally see him enter the fray!
So, let’s get straight to the analysis, shall we?
And yes, I will be peppering this article with random Xenoblade quotes. You’re welcome.
A day in the life of a monster hunter.
Deviljho are the bane of my Monster Hunting existance. >:(
So many sad feels today on my timeline so i’m adding to the pile of sad kirbs. (also an excuse to draw the season 2 designs which I will get around to doing everyone sometime soon!)
Being good to each other is so important, guys.
Process to ‘Apple Pie Float’
-(image 1) The original sketch had super chibi Pinkie which might have worked in the hands of a more competent artist, but somehow Pinkie just looked fugly to me at first. So, BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD
-(image 2) Ah, MUCH better~ Again, I might have been able to make ‘Chibi’ Pinkie work, but to me, this just looks a lot better with how I drew Big Mac here.
-(image 3) Started the flats to the characters & began painting in the background. Some people ask me when I color if I do BG’s or characters first.
IMO when working digitally you can do either, but in this particular case, I did the BG & THEN the characters so that I could get a sense of the palette for this piece.
-(image 4) Add the shading & a *little* more detail to the BG. To shade, i use the a series of layers dedicated to ‘Multiply’ for shading, and ‘Screen’ for highlights both set commonly to very low opacities.
-(image 5) Add the finishing touches~
