Companions by Kid-Apocalypse Companions by Kid-Apocalypse
100 Themes Challenge, #41 "Teamwork"

AT EFFING LAST. I put this in games fanart because Buzz Lightyear technically has video games. And that way I could lump him with Lise, of Seiken Densetsu 3 and general awesomeness. Please don't mention how I messed up her arm proportions, I know and chose not to fix it. <--this is a test to see if people actually read this stuff, because I'm starting to think they don't.)

This is my brother's choice of traveling companions were he given that choice. Doubtless inspired by my [link] But also because I nagged him about picking them and letting me draw him with 'em.

My brother looks like Shaggy from Scooby Doo. :giggle: And Buzz Lightyear was freaking FUN. I took about a week to draw Ethan, half an hour to draw Buzz, and then maybe two hours to draw Lise. Drawing real people is hard when they keep changing their minds about stuff. My references for Buzz and Lise were a sticker and a game sprite, respectively.

Buzz Lightyear (c) Disney, Pixar, etc.
Lise de Rolande (c) Square-Enix
Ethan, a.k.a. That One Guy EC (c) Mom

Ahhh! This one is so cool. It makes me (clearly) excited!
The Buzz man is the best ;D

Who is the elf girl, I wonder?

Thanks. I love drawing these types of pics...
Heck yes.

She's a video game character, Lise from Secret of Mana 3 for Super Nintendo.

Theres some minute detail in Buzz thats good work; i know I would have given up in frustration drawing him. ^^;

Wow! Lol, now I am impressed. You took your idea from super nintendo? That must have been a lot of improvisation. :D

Really? I think minute detail is fun....and I had a good reference, even if it was just a sticker.

I'm kind of inclined to say that you should be. ^^; It was the second-ish time I've drawn a character with only a sprite as reference.

Maybe I was scared out of it for being yelled at for using all the paper because of screw ups :D *shrugs*

Lol i keep thinking of drawing on my terms -- usually i need a more helpful reference heehee :D

I went through that...it's probably why I'm all about the digital art now. ^^;

Sometimes a more helpful reference is nowhere to be had. :frustrated: Times like that crop up too often...

Yea. :idea: Thats when you have to make your own. Draw different pieces of the total picture on seperate sheets and then refer to them when drawing the whole. At least, that was what I had done.

I'm too lazy to make my own references. ^^; If I have to just make it up as I draw, then that's what I do. Like Ark's gun....

What!? People don't read the artist comments? I always do. I wanna see the motivations and the reasonings behind the art!
Ethan really is a good bro. I should have had one or two of Ethans growing up...
I like it...and I like the background!

So do I, but after browsing all over the site for a while, I noticed that a lot of people ask questions that are answered therein. :confused: Baffling.

:nod:!! He is the coolest little big brother. Younger, but taller and wiser than me. :giggle:

The background was me discovering Painter's Effects menus. :D "Effects > Esoterica > Maze..." with a gradient on a gel'd layer above. Lazy? Yes.

Ah, the fine art of true art is.....simplicity......you'd be amazed at how many of the professional artists we admire today are "lazy"...they go with what works, whether it took them 5 hours or 30 seconds....:)
And that's what we strive for in the end, isn't it? Go with what works!!!! YAY! *dashes off to practice the principles*

That is a good point.

Have fun. One day I'll have to use this Maze thing to even better effect...

:thanks:!!! I had Ethan in the room the whole time I was drawing him, and he was so nice about being specific and making decisions every time I needed him to. He was really happy with the finished pic.
