All of Pop Culture is Megaman in “The Megamalgamation”
What would you call 1000 Megamans?

I actually have this as a poster. A friend of mine got it for me.

I’ve been very quiet lately, I guess. Been moving around a lot, not holding still and not always with all my hardware. I’ve settled down and all my stuff is at my fingertips once more.
This is Cinder… or Cinder Woman, if you prefer. A female Robot Master OC from Imbisibol on Deviantart (you can find the original design here.)
He does some great Robot Master work, and I was a bit intrigued by the design. 
On the whole, I’m happy how it came out… except for the shading on that forearm. It’s ugly and slipshod, but I can only spend so many hours on something before giving up, so with this the best I figured I could do at my current skill-level, and being unable to find any references I might be able to study to do a better job, I decided to just bite the bullet and post the dang thing.

A good bit of news today, if you haven’t already heard

But Ankama has released a Kickstarter for an English dub of Wakfu!

I won’t keep you, go on and check out the page for yourself!

Reblogging this to spread the word, because this is actually a very cool, cute, and amusing (and surprisingly deep) series, but thus far, it has only been available in French. There ARE fan-subs out there (though they’ve been recently removed from Youtube) if you look hard enough.  Or just visit the tumblr where this post originated and it should have all the information you need.

So. Dunno if you guys’ve heard this yet but, we’re gonna let you guys in on a little secret.

Did you guys KNOW….that Nintendo has been secretly working on the next two games in the Super Smash Brothers series??

AND THAT IT’LL BE ON WII U AND 3DS????

You’re damn right you already knew…

Why am I re-blogging this? Cause a chance at free Smash Brothers. That’s why.

"Mighty Knight S"
A combination of three other combinations, of Yacht Club’s “Shovel Knight,” Comcept’s “Mighty No. 9” and Wayforward’s “Shantae.” All three are kickstarter games you may want to check out:
Shantae: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1236620800/shantae-half-genie-hero
Mighty No. 9: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mightyno9/mighty-no-9
Shovel Knight: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/yachtclubgames/shovel-knight
I had to use Shantae as the overall base for a few reasons: one is that amidst the other’s primary details (none of which are gender-specific), Shantae’s key features are mostly feminine (belly dancer theme, after all). Andddd possibly her pants? Which I guess are sort of neutral. Maybe the gauntlets. But you get the idea. By dresssing up Shantae I was able to mesh all three together. Mighty 9 has no real distinction outside of his outfit other than his eyes, and some extremely minor differences in strokes for the nose. Shovel Knight has no face at all, so we end up with green eyed Shantae.
The design wasn’t particularly hard. The most difficult aspect was probably the thigh armor, and trying to integrate that with the pants. Everything else was something I’d planned for from the start.
The real nightmare was color. As with any combo, the color theory of each individual design is set to itself, so trying to combine them is always an issue. Then combine those with each other and you either get a mess or something homogenized. I wanted to avoid both, so I opted for a neutral base (black) with the blue acting as highlight zones for the base, with gold as the highlights. Extremely complicated when you’re working with about 50 layers, changing all of their colors constantly to try to get an idea of what works and what doesn’t.
While I’m sure this won’t prove as popular as combining objects of 4chan’s sexual desire, these designs were a lot more fun to come up with.

Heh. The art is awesome, and all these series look interesting, but I DO find it somewhat amusing that apparently being Female is the dominant trait, even when the M/F ratio is 2:1.
Well, assuming the Shovel Knight is male of course. It could be either, I guess. I don’t know much about that one.

Another of my friend’s Spliced Strategies X-Com runs.  He has a strange sense of humor, but he makes me giggle.

Well… I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting my WIP of this piece to get the attention that it did. That being said, I almost sincerely doubt that this one (the finished-as-far-as-it’s-likely-ever-going-to-be version) will get even half the attention.
I really wanted to add a background to this… I did. But I suck at backgrounds, and the time it took me just to add the shading… well, the more I stare at this piece, the more problems I find with it, and I can’t look at it anymore because I see nothing but flaws, so here you are. Penny, in all her glowy-green glory.
I like that tumblr allows sharing so easily, but I have to admit that one of the things that I find disappointing about tumblr is that, for all the likes and reblogs… no one ever leaves comments.

Youtube video of a good friend of mine playing X-Com.  He’s not as hardcore as some others out there, and he’s a dork, but he’s an entertaining dork, and I love the guy. He’s a good friend. He’s also modified the naming file on his own to use monikers of personal friends of ours, just to make the game more interesting.  He’s got a few other videos out there (this is not the first one, but it’s the first of this series).

If you like X-Com (which I do) you might like this.

It’s Electric

If you have an electric toothbrush, the next time you brush your teeth, take a good look at a digital alarm clock while you do so. It’s kinda whack.

WIP of a fanart of Penny from RWBY.  I don’t usually post WIP’s but… I just love how this turned out, and knowing me, it’s not gonna get finished for another week.
Base colors, no shading. No background. I’m… torn with how I want to shade this, because my usual method is too simple, and I just love how this came out that I want to do something more than that, but I have not the skills. Or the patience. 
I guess I need to look up some tutorials.
I also want a decent background, but… that’s even MORE difficult for me.  Sigh.
