Remember the picture of Drake & Sully holding hands from yesterday? I made up my mind and did a Wallpaper for the Wallpaper contest. Well as european I am not allowed to take part of it, but it was fun doing this picture. I didn’t ink it, the rough pencils have more drive than a clean ink. But I have redone drakes hair, now it doesnt look as weird. Whatever Sully looks better than Drake on this picture. I decided to have a clean background. I don’t like overloaded Wallpapers.
Monday, is Map day. I have another Map for you, this time it is the Train Wreck. I hope I can do Plaza this week too, so that I will be finished with the FB Maps before I go on holidays for two weeks. Unfortunately I am not able to scan in these two weeks, but I will probably be able to draw a lot 🙂 .
I did the Trains, which you can enter and climb on in a darker color, so that it is clear there is a roof on the drawn structure (exept the one which lays across, these one you just can enter). The two which you can not enter, have no entrance (only big lines) and are light because it is a higher level up there. I lined the stone walls a bit thicker than the cliff, to show, that there you will fall of the edge.
The Fort, a map I really hated to draw. I don’t know why, maybe because there exists only squares, squares and squares. Maybe because it is so dark and kind of sad looking. Maybe because it is a rainy map. It is really hard to tell. So please don’t judge me on this Map Layout. It isn’t probably the best one, but I am soooo happy, that I have finished it. Also I still haven’t figured out the best scan method, the lines look really messed up and kinda pixled 😦 …. but… I’m done by now with this one. Let’s head on to a more entertaining map. There are two left for the Flashback Map Pack. So it will be either Train Wreck or Plaza.
I hardly ever got a kick off medal, I think I have only one or two of it at all. This lunchtime refers definately to the kick off medal. This time I took a photo of the first guiding lines, to show you how I constructed the Picture.
I am really not used to draw moved characters. It is kinda funny that it goes off my hand so well since I have played Uncharted 3. There are still some mistakes in the picture and I really have to work on drawing legs and foots 🙂 .
I kinda like this picture, dunno why. So I decided to give it color.
It was 2009 I think, when I started with L33t. It all began at the Gamescom at Cologne on Monday before it opened. We (the gamecity.ch crew) were working on topics for our new Homepage back then. And we liked to have an own little comicstrip. So I pulled out some short drawings, I have done in school (yay I am really creative at school XD ). They were really unpolished and noobish but I published them. Later the drawings got better, they weren’t awesome but they entertained a bit. After a while I lost track of it. Due to work and other things I didn’t got any ideas of gags anymore so the series kinda stopped.
Since I made now a facebook site for my blog (Yay!!) I liked to use these character as Avatar. And so I decided to translate the cartoons and bring them online here once again, in english. If you wanna read them in german, please head on to www.gamecity.ch .
The first one refers to all the RPG’s where the NPC civilians running or standing in the way of a fight. Leading to negative kills for you as a player. This could be sometimes reeeallly frustrating! 🙂
Ah before you ask. It is coloured by water colours. Exept the bubble nothing is made by computer. Yeah it was my first one.
