New Page

I have started a new facebook page for my art where it gains a lot more traffic than it does here so there will be more frequent updates there than here. You can find the page here.

This page will mostly hold the animated GIF files that facebook does not support.


For an app design, here are some of them:

Marvel Portraits

More Marvel Madness with portraits of 5 characters, 3 of them referenced off the actors Hugh Jackman, Anna Pacquin and Ian McKellen while the other two (Ghost Rider) off a skull doll and another actor Thomas Jane but not the official actor for Nova (obviously since there isn't a Nova film yet).


Below are the links to the step-by-step progression drawings.

New Ruler

A new t-shirt design for sale now on my Red Bubble account.

A nice simple pun-orientated design.

Monsieur Masseur

A practise of perspective, stylised characters without reference. I'm aware now that the legs are far too small even for the perspective influence but that's just something I'll have to get used to identifying.


 Below is a GIF showing the processes and obviously why my perspective of the legs were off.

Milky Mayhem

The result of my art trade.
Originally just a background exercise but then it turned into this.


She's a farmgirl/cowgirl and thus the giant space/cowships shooting laser-milks.

Frank West

Don't know much about the character except for his name and a few little perks here and there from his game, but he is a playable character in UMvC3 so I thought I'd make a little comedy out of his name.


Idea originally from
"Kanye West, Kanye East".

Portrait Practise

Some more practise on portraits, tone and every other skills that are used naturally in the process.

Featuring myself, a friend, Iron Man's Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr) and Thor's Chris Hemsworth.
There were no tracing involved, just a lot of eyeballing of the reference. These are essentially the first 4 "painting" type art I've done since getting the Cintiq and I learned a lot pretty quickly after evaluating each piece upon completion.

From 4 or so hours on "The Patty Pat" to an hour each on RDJ and C.H.

Something New

So i've done some freelancing stuff recently which I can't yet put all up until they've been published but here are some stuff that I may be doing more of.

Character Art Trade
Theme: Finishing Move
A very quick sketch of a girl for my art trade partner to use as reference.
Added a little bit of sexual innuendo to make a simple picture more entertaining.

TrollinPie

Introducing another UMvC3 tournament player, BT|MarlinPie who plays in such a way that brings a great deal of fun for viewers instead of playing with the sole purpose of being cheap and winning.

His only cheapness is his really high level of skill in this game which even then is quite entertaining as he can look at the other player and perform a winning combo away from the screen.

He looks a bit like this.

Bionic Arm Meme

Felt like making a meme here considering the hype revolving around this, my gift to the FGC.

Anyone who knows Peter "ComboFiend" Rosas (a.k.a ComebackFiend) knows he makes some of the most epic comebacks with his Spencer.

It all starts with a simple Bionic Lancer that gets the crowd screaming like mad!


Screenshots taken from the following reference Bionic Arm at 31:10.

Gravity Squeeze

Featuring Gamora and Magneto (Marvel heroes) inspired by Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (again).
Magneto's Level 3 Hyper Combo attack is his "Gravity Squeeze" which is pretty self explanatory but I decided to make a someone lightly sexist joke about it in the scene below.


Enjoy!

Deadpool Clip

One month later... To find a poorly drawn post.
Well this is what I managed to draw today along with a few other sketches that did not make it into today's post.

Just a comic relief between Marvel's Doctor Strange, Shuma-Gorath and of course Deadpool.


Inspired by the game Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Doctor Strange has an attack that calls forth power from his amulet the "Eye of Agamotto".

Deadpool being the funny character that he was intended to be (that mocks other characters) throws one of Doctor Strange's strongest foe, Shuma-Gorath who happens to have a very distinct "eye" which Deadpool makes a pun of.

Bonus image below featuring Doctor Strange's other main villain, Dormammu.

Morrigan vs. Iron Man

As everybody is aware and excited, Iron Man 3 and Darkstalkers Ressurection is coming soon! Here's a little extra hype for all Iron Man and Darkstalker fans.

Click to see Higher Res image with transparency

Round Three: Morrigan Aensland vs. Anthony "Tony" Stark (Iron Man)
What do you get when you put a succubi with the the playboy billionaire in the same room? A lot of fun for both fighters and all the audience around. Although with these two, the whole city is their bedroom.

Maybe if Stark didn't use up all of his Arc Reactor's power on his thrusters he would've done something that could have been fatal to Morrigan - pun intended. ;)

The armor gave me the most trouble, the level of detail was a huge shift from drawing very basic characters (like the Citacup and Calamaori) but it's good to be back into drawing more completed works and I hope to keep the momentum going.

Although the classic red and gold version is much simpler in terms of the level of details, the bolts and nuts etc. to draw but I decided to use the Mark V armor here because that's personally my favourite one and I love the silver on it as well as trying to keep some form of interest away from Morrigan and on Iron Man. (But then again, it wasn't a fair fight the Mark V is heavily outclassed by later models and are only equipped with Repulsor Blasts).

Sometimes I like to call him Island Man, as that's what it sounds like if you tag out to Iron Man from Morrigan or perform a TAC/DHCon UMvC3. Anyway, as usual progression can be found below.
Hooray for GIFs

Calamaori

Inspired by Marvel's Shuma-Gorath this is the Calamaori. Except this design is a generic squid with a tilted hat smoking a Colorado Claro.

The naming convention is a pun on the English pronounciation of "Māori" and the food commonly known as Calamari (squid) and as such, the design input was a generalisation of the way some Māori people of the common era dress in New Zealand.

It started out as just a rough sketch which I thought eventually looked like it could look like something cool if vectored in a simple cartoon-y style.

Darkstalkers Competition

After a long hiatus from drawing, I feel as though I'm back to square one.

A character concept design for Capcom's "Darkstalkers Ressurection: Embrace the Dark" character creation competition.


Profile:

Lethe (Thérèse Czyżyk)

Country of Origin: Ukraine
Type: Leviathan
Birth Year: 1985
Height: 159 cm
Weight: 62 kg

Born on an airplane during a flight from Ukraine to France and raised in France. Her mother passed away moments after giving birth on the plane and at the age of 14 her father became neck deep in debt and Thérèse was forcibly taken away by a drug lord until he could pay her back. Ten years later, Thérèse escapes and tramples on forbidden grounds of Ornica (one of the many hell gates scattered around the world) in search of a new home; she awakens the sealed spirit of the demon Leviathan from the early days of the creation.
Minutes after gaining the power of the Leviathan, the men of the drug lord catches up to her to try and retrieve her. Within moments of touching her, their lungs were filled up and drowned. Thérèse gained superhuman strength and the magical power to control water but in exchange becomes host for the Leviathan spirit which at times becomes too strong for her to control in its rampage.
Fueled by revenge, she tracks down every drug lord in the country in search for her long lost father. With no sign of her father, three years later she became known as Lethe; named after the river of oblivion.

Lethe is capable to materialize her scarf into a small version of Leviathan’s tail and use it in combat to attack.
Among other materialization, she can bring forth the teeth of Leviathan with each punch to add extra devastation.

Cita on Android

Citacup Hits a GIANT Wall!

So porting it into an actual Android software and hardware gave me a huge amount of trouble but it did end up working... to an extent.

The HUD has issues when it was imported and I'm not sure why things disappear here and there but I'm going to take this as a learning experience and well, learn from it for future projects. This may be the last we see of Citacup but during the production; I have a lot of new skills added to my programming and I've got an idea of how to get things done when working with other platforms such as HTML5 and Android.

Here's what may possibly be the last footage of Citacup: The Game.


Sencilsketches will pick-up on illustrations and animations again for a while before going back into game development. Another day in future, maybe Citacup will recommence or a new game will take its place.
