Tomato's whateverz: Random Artworkzez
« on: July 21, 2010, 11:26:35 PM »
just a thread for me to post whatever weird art-ish stuff I make when I'm not skinning. Today we have Sackboy costumes from...

Little Big Planet



Have a beast too, but I'm not 100% happy with it. Need to see if there's a better hair style for him.

How peculiar, neanderthal X-Men. Perhaps a Deadpool and Green Lantern next? :)

Have a few more LBP X-men done (havok, beast, colossus) but I'll post them... later. For now, here are some of the doodles I've made in class over the last few months.



This is on top of the 20-25 pages of random sheets I've written also. And I have a B to A- average right now. Clearly the Air force is using my time productively  :P

(Note: doodles were captured by use of my cell phone, so the quality could be far better were I to use a scanner... but you make do witth what you have. Also, this isn't all of them yet... I'm posting via phone, and I want to keep it to 5 images at a time to make sure the browser doesn't just close on me... should be about a dozen when I'm done.)

Edit: Here's the twelve, now in bite size!

If you've got a working brain, you can get through most AF tech schools.  There are a couple that actually require you to know what you're doing and have skills (foreign languages, programming, combat controller, para-rescue, and I'll assume most medical), but for the most part you can pretty much learn what you need for your job (basically) in tech school.

Hope to see more

Wow. These Naruto sprites look great. Even though they're very small, the detail work on each one makes identifying them pretty easy! If there was a rpg for Naruto using sprites, i'd imagine they would look something like these. :P

Heh, most of them are actually from Naruto RPG 1/2 for the DS. The ones that aren't (mostly Shippuden) were made in the same style by me.

here's a test of a sprite style for later beadeds... it's always bugged me that none of the good sprites for heroes were small enough for beadeds.




Edit: Added Superman and a base sprite... if anyone's interested I'll start a thread, even make some more bases to use.

I see...still that's pretty impressive work in my opinion. Can't really tell the difference between your work and the rpg's.

I'm guessing making these sprite style characters is like working with micros...only they're just...."mini" micros. Maybe those who were interested in micros would also be interested in these..like Juancho? :unsure: :)

What exactly are beadeds? Are they just a small kind of artwork or are they for something specific?
Eitherway they look great. Do you create them at a larger size and then shrink them down?

I can... mine are better. No offense meant to TOMY, I understand they have deadlines and all.. but some of the sprites are bad. You just can't tell here because I updated some of the more obnoxious stuff for my sheet.

Sort of... Micros are a kind of halfway point between spriting and digital work. The biggest distinction is that with sprites you're limited on colors(mainly because of the 256 color limit in sprited games, but Isve found it works better for the small size... more distinct). As a rule of thumb, for sprites done in my own styles I try and use 3 skin tones and then 2 for outfit tones, with a max of 15 colors a sprite.

What exactly are beadeds? Are they just a small kind of artwork or are they for something specific?
Eitherway they look great. Do you create them at a larger size and then shrink them down?

Beadeds are what I call the Perler bead creations I've made... basically I put different color beads on a specially designed pegboard and melt them together. I mainly do them to relax (it's a craft that requires patience) but they are really popular on DA for some reason... I did a Sasuke months ago and they're still getting favorited. The sprites are intended as a template for when I sit down... you'll notice the squares on the naruto ones, those are each representative of a pegboard.

Not for these. I did do that for some of the Shippuden chars, but it is more a baseline than anything. I still have to go back and do everything over regardless though, I just resize for basic shapes.

Some updates and additions (streamlined the palette on supes and bats to better mesh with available beads, and with one another):



I want it noted that all four together come to about 18 colors+transparency. I think the highest color count so far is 10.

These are some in-game shots from my avatar in the PS3 game "Modnation Racers." Fairly simple, but I like it. If anyone else has an avatar they want to post, I'd love to see it.

-Not entirely sure how exactly this came about... I'm weird post midnight, I come up with all kinds of crazy ideas that I'll never finish.

Based on a Jump Superstars sprite (Gotenks), might go and do all the Influx characters if I feel up to it.

Edit:

Only my av is left now. Yayz.

So, after a fair bit of time an effort, I've managed to get most of the Xmen figures I needed for my collection... the ones I'm going to be able to get decent versions of anyway *looks at Toad and Havok sideways.* The only two I have to get now are Storm and Nightcrawler (don't ask me how, they just ended up the last ones  :wacko: ). I still have a bunch of customs to get, but when I'm done my plan is to have displays for 3 groups of X-men (8 members on each team)facing off against their villainous counterparts. To celebrate the (near) completion of my non-custom collection, I assembled my "Face Offs" for a temporary display... and I do mean temporary, as 4 of the 20 figures fell over within 30 seconds of me taking photos.  :P



And here are the figures currently unpaired.



... I will be editing this post with smaller pics asap

So, I got bored earlier. This happened.



-Please not that the image isn't exactly mine... it's an edit of another artist's work.

So yeah, two guesses as to what I'm thinking is gonna happen with O'grady now that Lang's back alive.
