Simp Calibur + Strange

Postby gkscotty » Fri Mar 05, 2004 4:04 am

Okay, two new pics this time.

The first one is inspired by Bothead's fanfic that's based on Soul Calibur 2. It needs a bit of proportion work. It's also the first time I've ever drawn Homer, which explains why he looks more dodgy than the others and why he's hidden at the back there.

The second one is a random idea. If anyone can think of a scenario behind this picture, I will be in your debt for I have no idea what's happened really.

Hm, this seems to be firmly established as my drawing style.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Great pics Steve...not much in the critique department, but to answer your question on the 2nd pic...

Simon has just chosen Bart over these two for his sensational Spout medley featuring "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "I'm a little Tea Pot".

Nice work done. I was thinking of somehow having Simp Calibur pictures but I don't have any experiance drawing Simpsons characters. So I'm very glad you've drawn a sketch. A slight problem is the size of the characters but it's not too important. I like Bart's confidence on his face and the detail of Lisa's sword and shield. Thank you very much for doing this.

If it's any payback, the second picture kind of suggests Lisa meeting an old friend. But it also shows they both have no shoes on so maybe it could be something to do with that.
Before continuing, it may be in your best interest, dear reader, to stop and ponder this. Picture it in your mind's eye. An evil one-eyed midget named Cheatum swam across the Gulf of Mexico wearing a shark fin on his back and then planted a bomb on a boat. Think about that. Let that sink in. Now. Wouldn't you want to buy a wrestling show after seeing this?

First picture:
Homer: "Don't scream! Worms! Mmmm... worms."
Bart: "That was fun, man!"

Second picture:
Lisa: "What? I swear, I didn't know you were wearing the same dress tonight!"

Thanks for the comments folks, much appreciated.

I remembered about that Wacom I've had lying around, and plugged it in. Then I tried to colour Lisa.

I'm not sure if the shading actually added anything. So I'm posting both versions. Take your pic. Comments appreciated.

Either way it looks much better coloured.

Very nice Steve. I think the shading version really adds a nice "action" feel to the pic, given the pose she has, she now looks like she's about to walk right off the page.

Very impressive!

I really like the coloration with shading.

Nice pose, too!

Well, what should I say? I commented about your improving yesterday on chat, already. The Calibur pic looks darned great. Do you have any plans to colour the whole thing? I'd definitely like to see it.

The second pic, well, I don't really know what happened. But I really like the result - it looks practically flawless!

I already commented the first two pics privately, i like the complexity of the first one and the clean lines and overall look of the second one (yeah, you did improve a lot!) At a first glance, the second charachter resembles more Marge than anyone else.

Of the colorings i prefer the shaded one, just because it adds a little volume to the charachter, and i'm a sucker for 3d looking drawings :) ... the only thing i'd change are the shadings on her skirt, because they're too "small", and instead of looking like the skirt is round, it looks like the skirt is flat with some bumps in it. Maybe a little gradient from dark to light applied together with the more detailed shades could make it less noticeable...

Cool idea, I love Soul Calibur. Basically the only things wrong with the two new pics is that if it is a pic of Lisa or Maggie, the face is kinda off with the nose and overbite. the hand holding the sword looks a lil odd.....But besides all that it's a pretty cool picture.
