This critter is part of an animation project I’m working on. He is also completely rigged and animated. Somehow he fell though the cracks as I forgot to upload him last week. Why is the garchomp wearing a hoodie? Your guess is as good as mine. The animation is around 20 seconds long and is fan-service/parody to The Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, and Fire Emblem games. The main goal is making the characters talk convincingly. The characters that will be speaking are Link, The garchomp in a sweater, Old Man, and Ike.
Link is the daily paint, the others are characters used in my next animation project that I will upload soon. The poses are stiffer then usual because I needed to rig them for animation.
Link – Main character in ‘The Legend of Zelda’. There are three main ‘Links’ in the series, this is ‘Toon’ Link
Old Man – The one who give’s Link his sword in the beginning of the game. I had a lot of freedom with how I wanted him to look like, since the original is just a pixelated sprite.
Cubone Line – Link wearing a cubone’s mask.
Link is (C) Nintendo yada yada yada.
The caption that goes below this painting when it is finished will be “you have nice manners for a thief and a liar”. I am very disappointed that I was unable to finish by release day :(. My desktop PC was crashing after a few minutes of turning on. I think its over heating. I will probably need to crack it open and replace a fan if that is what it is. I haven’t run a diagnostic so I’m not sure. But regardless, I was unable to work on this. Thank goodness I worked on the color study for my commission first. Updates are : I made Smaug bigger. I refined Bilbo’s,Thorin’s, and Smaug’s face. Added a cast shadow. I can’t believe it took me a hour to do this. I must need more coffee 😀 Although I have a great reference for Cumberbatch’s face, I need so see how his wings and tail are before working on them. So I will need to rent the movie soon.
Time spend on this piece: 3 hours so far.
For Andytallman101. Andy asked me to draw Spiderman with silverware in hand ready to pounce on Robert Smith. The lyrics in Lullaby inspired him. I heard of The Cure but never really paid much attention to their music. I watched one of their music videos on YouTube and thought they where pretty decent . I was struggling with drawing Spiderman upside down, then I realized ‘you fool, flip the canvas 180!’. Note to self: do more then one thumbnail for every painting you do (do a dozen!). Halfway painting this I realized a different shot would of been more effective.
