Another EarthBound enemy, the Worthless Protoplasm. When defeated, sometimes drops a cookie!
Here’s my attempt at Unassuming Local Guy, one of EarthBound’s many wonderful enemies. His signature attack is “Become friendly and affectionate” (target becomes solidified), and there is a small chance he will drop a Toothbrush when defeated.
It was about four years ago, and I was taking this class on writing for video games. One of our assignments was to write a “game narrative review” about any (presumably story-based) game we wanted. But it wasn’t just a normal assignment. The professor was going to be submitting all of the class’s work to some national judgement panel. The best entrants picked from across the country (I forget how many, it was like twenty or so) would be invited to the Game Developers’ Conference in Austin, Texas, where they could show off their review to the guests and fancy developer-types down there.
Much to my surprise, I received an email from Ubisoft writer Richard Dansky telling me that my EarthBound review had been selected as one of the outstanding entries and I was invited to Texas. There was just one requirement: I had to design and print an EarthBound-themed poster to display alongside my review.
I was given about a month and a half to do it, which for a normal, productive person should have been plenty of time. But in the end I did not make a poster, due to a combination of summertime procrastination and lack of inspiration. Because of nobody but myself, I missed a huge opportunity to share my favorite game (not to mention my art and writing) with whatever important people were going to be attending the Game Developers’ Conference. It’s something I still regret.
One day I plan to go ahead and make the poster anyway, and just mail it to them with an apology or something. It won’t have as much impact now that the game has been announced for a Virtual Console release, but it’ll still be a load off my conscience.
Went to New York City this weekend, bought these at some Japanese store my friend took me to. They appear to be some sort of educational childrens’ game? Dunno, can’t read Japanese. I just bought them because there was an eevee on the top of the deck.
Sorry for the blurry image, I’d have to take them all out again to snap a better photo.
I’ve been sitting on this one for nearly a year. I was never happy with it, but I was sick of it sitting on my desktop, so I made some revisions and tossed in a background. There are still a few details bugging me that I can’t quite pinpoint, however that’s probably the best “open animal mouth” I’ve ever drawn.
I am pleased to announce the retooling of my old, washed-up webcomic as a steamy poké-romance. Follow the adventures of Eevee, Pichu, Maurice, and Skippy, as they discover themselves and so much more!
I wonder what could be in this box that’s been sitting in my basement since the mid-90s?
Oh hello there, Mister R.O.B. You’re looking quite dusty this evening.
We never did figure out how to put this thing together…
Maybe if I join the Nintendo Fun Club they’ll be able to straighten this out.
I mean one that won’t be tripping over itself all the time:
I wasn’t very happy with the ninfia picture I posted previously, but there was a lot worth keeping, so I converted it into a better eeveelution. Also got kinda funky with the lower half. Dunno why.
So here’s supposedly another 6th-gen pokemon. My feelings on it are mixed — I’m a big fan of the “Oops, all berries!” color scheme, and it *is* better than most everything from 5th gen, but… it evolves from eevee. And it just doesn’t strike me as being very eeveeish. The thing would be a hundred times better if it had its own evolution line. For now, I guess I’m just thankful it isn’t as bad as last gen.
By the way, those streamers give this thing a first class, one-way ticket to “never gonna try to vector this again” town.
It’s Fennekin! Finally got this done! Fire was hard to figure out!
I don’t usually reblog things, but this is too awesome not to. They even managed to make the ear fluff look not dumb.
Okay, so here’s a weird situation that arises from time to time.
I finish drawing a character, and decide that it needs a background, but I have nothing in mind for the setting so I just start mindlessly doodling. By the time I’m done, I’ve got something that looks nice but doesn’t fit at all with the original drawing.
The background’s too cool to get rid of, but I can’t use it for something else because I didn’t bother drawing the part behind the character. So, here’s my weasel… somewhere, doing… something.
Behold the 2006 Hlavco Vantastic, the first (and only) semi-complicated thing I’ve ever done in 3D. I made it as a custom truck for the 1999 racing game 4x4 Evolution, but now I’m recycling it to experiment with a game-making application called Unity, because why not.
Unfortunately I deleted some of the original files so if I ever want to fix those strange shading effects on the side I’ll have to restart from scratch. Not that there’s a lot of complexity to replicate.
The tires aren’t from 2006, I threw those together last night. And the side mirrors were swiped off one of the 4x4 Evo in-game trucks.
