Battle Block Theater Guy

The Beast loved this game. He hasn't played it in a while. But.. I made a pattern for the round headed prisoner anyway.

And then made a variant for him in his cat pajamas.

Because reasons. (Also it's his birthday gift. That I haven't given to him already. Unlike the other four things I made for him...)

Will I ever share this pattern? Dunno. There are some fiddly bits that I don't feel like explaining. I guess if someone asked I'd give it a go. But it's not like this is a particularly difficult character to make..

Not entirely happy with the ears. It bothers me the more I look at it. Should have made the triangle lopsided so they'd stand up better. Oh well. Next time.

Geralt is done

Okay. Done. The swords aren't great. But.. hey, they're swords. Pictures are still crap. Still based heavily on patterns by CraftyTibbles.



Will I ever make Ciri? Or Yennifer? Or Triss? Oh! Or Yarpen?
Dunno. Maybe. Maybe not.

But.. I do have a project coming up (using the same patterns as a base) for a character from a game that I don't even play. So. Yeah!

Geralt

Work in progress here. Still need to figure out something for the swords on his back. And my pictures are terrible. But.. that's what I've got on this cloudy day - over bright lights on short cords. Oh well.

I've heavily used bits of two patterns by CraftyTibbles (Slave Leia and Gandalf, to be specific). Reference pictures found on Google image search. I wasn't good enough to remember from whence they came. So no credit, though it's from Witcher 3.

Sick with the flu

I feel like crap. Have a drawing.

This is the idea I'm currently working with to replace the rabbit in my animation. I think I need at least one more bear though.

Ugh

I may have to change my plans completely. I can't seem to make these rabbits not look stupid. The current thought it maybe the octopus in place of the opening circles and... something else for the rabbit.

Yesterday's failure:

Some updates

Alright. Added some things. Not a huge change, but I think it improves the overall piece. Procrastinating on the next bit where the rabbit's voice/part changes. May involve the tentacle squeezing him and his eyes bulging comically. We'll see. After all that is done I'll go back and try and tweak the mouth movements so that they're more in sync with the music.

Constructive advice is welcome, just remember that this is a hobby and I'm as amateur as they come. I've been using this software for maybe two weeks. And I'm a delicate flower, dammit.

Again, not my music. Song is Cotorito but the impressive Middle Milk.

Continuation of A Thing.

I posted an animation I was working on a while ago. Here's more. It's a video instead of a .gif because it needs sound for the full impact. The song is called Cotorito by Middle Milk. I don't have their permission to use this song and am not entirely clear on whether or not it's needed for a personal art project that no one is likely to ever see. And to be honest I feel stupid asking them.. since this is basically on par with the work of a second grader. Despite the art itself being sub-par and the animation obviously the work of an amateur, I'm really proud of it. It's not done yet and the syncing isn't perfect. This is my first go at animation.. And I don't really have an artistic bone in my body.. And I'm a techno-idiot... So.. Yeah.

It's not an addiction, I swear

That said, I got no duplicates and did, in fact, get the one I really, really wanted.


Our local Gamestop is now out of the blind boxes so I am officially done.
