Just came across this again too, this is from near the start of 2011 I think. But when I look back I think this was one of the better things I drew last year.
I swear guys, I really do want to get to this battle (though this cover is no longer representative of what I would do in it by this point). I have not forgotten about it, we will have our fight and it will rock.
THIS IS A REBLOG THAT IS REPRESENTATIVE OF A HIGH FIVE TO A BRO THAT I PROMISED TO DO A COMIC WITH AND WILL UPHOLD SUCH A PROMISE UNTIL WE BOTH GET THE CHANCE TO SPILL (digital) INK BLOOD AND PAINT UPON OUR (also digital) CANVASES.
I made this cover over the summer of 2011, when I was still in the midst of working on my comic. It’s a halted project now, due to inconvenient timing on both of our ends :(. Looking back on the actual comic that I have finished, which I haven’t touched for awhile (20/50 pages, roughly?) I am half-tempted to rewrite it as a whole, or redo certain parts. It drives me nuts.
I failed to meet all the requirements of my commissioner, not on purpose, but one particular prerequisite (changing the lighting scenario completely) would have to get me to rework a lot of this piece to the point of almost starting over.
Underground city-esque/market hub place.. I might have to rework the colors still, because I’ve went through billions of different color schemes and none of them look particularly great.
(Never commission me, ever, I will turn all your environments into neon disco laser landscape, and I draw characters akin to stick-figure caliber)

Why are people sending me such nice comments into my ask box! My work isn’t really anything formidable, but thank you! I’m glad to hear it brightens your day!
Opposite seasonal stuff again! Did a freezing/snowy enviro in the summer, now for a tropical beach enviro in the winter.
I have not been this unsure of color palette/value configuration about a picture for awhile. Even now I’m not really sure about it.. especially with the different lighting schematic/physics that accompanies this particular environment. (A spacebase on the moon.)
I haven’t posted on Fumblr in ages; right now I’m trying to play catch up with personal projects/loose end work.
2nd Request from SpiralKnightmare: Megaman Zero from Megaman.
Sorry I am doing these requests at 4/9th of a mile per hour. Even though I’m legitimately busy, I sometimes forget about how forgetful I am about requests in general, either that or I get ADD and run back to my own projects.
I missed the Gears of War contest deadline by literally a few seconds because my browser froze.
That’s okay though, 2-3 hr speedpaint , good practice.
Just throwing this school assignment on here that I crapped out in a few hours, so my Tumblr looks slightly less devoid of updates. The print came out really dark so I kinda got screwed in that department. It came out OK as a standalone piece though.
