This fucker has been confusing players who skip spoiler season, getting picked fourteenth, enraging Tarmogoyf-seekers, tying up the lines to Wizards of the Coast Game Support, and singing a siren song to amateur MtG designers ever since Spring 2007.
I am not immune to his charms. I, like many others before me, wish to solve the puzzle that was never meant to be solved, to figure out what exactly Riggers are doing assembling those contraptions anyway.
However, I am not optimistic enough to believe that even a far-fetched approximation of a mechanic will come out of this post. Instead, I believe this post will be far more important to highlight how Contraptions may never be assembled, or yea, assembled two Contraptions instead.
And this is possibly the oldest Work In Progress I own, and therefore the one least likely to ever be finished. It’s supposed to be a fusion of an underwater scene and, uh, fruits and vegetables. That’s a banana squash whale, a carroctopus, a brain coral pineapple, a watermelon clam, two strawberryfish, a corn lobster, a starfruitfish, a school of grapes, and some jellytaters. Also some raspberries placed to look like polyps or coral or summat. Prismacolor markers applied inexpertly over a pencil sketch, with pencil then coming on top to add shadows and texture.
I found some old art files of mine, which means I can update this with the full photoset version of this piece. Literal years old, so while I’ll appreciate any feedback (Especially regarding fixing its levels), just know it may not be implemented for a while.
I read up until the final translated chapter of Goodnight, Punpun a week or so ago. I liked it so much I felt obligated to do a fanart.
Not gonna lie, I dislike this result. I abjectly hated it when I had just finished, so I guess things are getting better. Still, in order to make great drawings you have to get rid of the 10,000 shitty ones first, right?
Now that I’ve stopped being sicker than two dogs, I can finally put this up in good conscience.
This is the protagonist of a short comic I’m drawing, in order to actually practice sequential art storytelling and various other things before I start Mortropolis. Ideally I make all the really stupid mistakes with this one to get them out of the way.
I’m shooting for 20 pages as a soft goal, but ultimately the story will dictate how long it is.
My only sticking point is, she needs a name. Any suggestions?
These are a couple of sketches I did a while back, as the result of a free figure-drawing workshop I attended halfway through. They’re of the same model, made in about 20 minute each, maybe, I think? Something like that.
For those of you who don’t know, my artistic weakness is humans. Faces, bodies, anatomy in general, I’m just rubbish at it. This extends to animals to an extent, but we’re not so hypersensitive to animal anatomy that I can’t get away with some fudging there. But I can’t get away with that forever; I feel some fear pulling me away from artistic elements in stories I want to tell just because I won’t be able to draw them well enough.
I’m not wholly sure where to start, but looking for some more figure drawing classes certainly can’t hurt. These sketches are a bit embarrassing in how amateur they are, but I want to immortalize them here so someday I can look back, and see how far I’ve come.
