Congrats goes to the awesome folks at the blog What’s Your Tag?! The guys there are awesome, and their blog is everything I would want mine to be if I decided to keep trying to make Game Over You Suck a news blog. I annoy the guys at WYT? far too often, and I figured I would give them a little something back. So CONGRATS! I hope the next year goes great for you!
Now, with that aside, I can talk about the artwork itself. Man, I went about this in a super stupid way. With no tablet I have to rely on drawing outside the computer, then bringing it in. So I drew the basic image on notebook paper, transcribed it to blank computer paper, inked it, scanned it, then realized I couldn’t just color the image online… I had to re-draw the entire image with a brush tool on paint.net in order to create layers for the colors. Whew.
Coloring isn’t my forte. In fact, I don’t think I’m good at coloring. And on top of everything, I got sick like, three days ago, and I’m completing this on sheer force of will. I did get a bit lazy with the coloring at the end, like with Mileson’s plaid shirt being solid. All things considered, I think it came out pretty well. The line work is very my style and the guys all have been translated fairly well in anime-style. Looking back at the line work, I should’ve made Mileson’s sideburns longer, but whatever, I’ll do better next time. I took liberties with Mileson’s and AMGfail’s eye color, and I feel like Kafka Luck got gipped a bit, as the image doesn’t really bring out any personality. At some point, I’ll do another drawing of Mr. Luck and try to capture his personality in the comics.
Anyways, back to being sick and playing Titanfall on PC. Leave a comment below if you have any criticisms or comments! I appreciate any and all input.
