Beerus – 61

I love the fact that there’s a new Dragon Ball show yet I’m not sure if it’s purely because of nostalgia. I don’t love the music, I don’t love the animation and I feel the last fight took way longer than it needed to. Still, watching that new episode is probably my favorite thing about Sundays.

That being said, I do absolutely love Beerus as a character. I love his design and I love that he doesn’t fit the mold of a typical DB antagonist. I’m super excited to see what they do with him.

Props to FallenZephyr for his palette challenge once again.

    Mario vs. Freddy Fazbear

    So a while back somebody suggested I do this fight. I had no idea who this Freddy dude was so I googled it and thought “huh, it’s some weird bear dude. I don’t know about this.” But then more people started to suggest it. And more. And then more. It soon became my most requested fight. So I bought the first game, played it, got to the 3rd night and then never played it again because I don’t have the nerves. But I got it, I got the appeal and that got me excited to do this.

    I added Chica and Bonnie also and the only thing I’m kinda not super fond of with this one is that it’s very similar in terms of concept and execution to Mario vs. Slender Man. I knew that from the get go but I decided go ahead anyway and hey, I really like how it turned out.

      Sketchbook Update – Summer 2015 Edition

      It’s hot and it’s hard to sleep but I’m still chugging along with my sketchbook. This is definitely the longest I’ve taken to finish one but I’m getting there and I aim to finish it this year.

      Still doing a bunch of cyberpunk stuff. It’s a look I’m really trying to learn and push for.

        DBZ vs. Chrono Trigger: Round 2

        Those who know me only a tiny bit know that I love Akira Toriyama’s work. Those that have followed my work for a long time know would also that I’ve combined two of his greatest works, DBZ and Chrono Trigger (mostly character designs for the latter), in the past. But that piece is many years old and I wanted to try a similar one with the tools I have acquired over the years.

        Also, Dragon Ball Super is everything I want in my life right now.

          K’ – 48

          Last one for the night!

          I love SNK and, I imagine, this won’t be the last SNK character I use for these.

          One more of these palette challenges and I’ll complete another row in the compilation after which I’ll take a break from them as I work on other stuff.

          These are always fun though so I’ll always come back to them.

          And we’re itching close to that halfway mark!

            Morrigan – 73

            I’ve tried to stick to flat colors for these palette challenges but this is the first time that I’ve used a gradient for reasons that basically boil down to “it looks better to me that way.” It’s not something I’ll do all the time now but I’ll definitely try to put it here and there now that a precedent has been set.

            Also tried to capture that, for lack of a better word, luscious look of Morrigan illustrations by the Capcom old guard of artists.
