Happy birthday Grogfella! I can’t believe it’s been a year since your last birthday! If I recall correctly, you enjoy girls in drinking glasses, so I put Perp and Cel in one (sadly it’s a little cramped though)! I also wanted to design some clothing for them so that happened too, sorry! Anyway, happy birthday, I hope you had a great day (actually I would very much like for all of your days to be great)!
"You like my shoes? Here, I’ll let you have a closer look!"
Since I had so much fun with this redesign for cruxia's OC fighting collab, I figured I’d draw a few more sketches to elaborate on it.
Cel’s fighting style is mostly based on kickboxing and mixed martial arts, taking close inspiration from characters like Hwoarang, Bryan and Steve from the Tekken series. Her playstyle is based entirely around fast and brutal combos - getting good with her is all about being able to chain from one attack to the next with no pause, rather than remembering complicated attack patterns. Her move inputs also tend to favor rotational inputs rather than sequences of button presses, as shown above.
Also, since I didn’t want to leave Perp completely out of it, she also shows up to cheer Cel on from the sidelines, and to celebrate with her when she wins. So Perp is basically the Poison to Cel’s Hugo. She may even give her a smooch.
Right now it’s one minute ‘til New Years, so I hope your 2014 was at least a little bit awesome. Here’s my last sketch of the year.
If we’re being totally honest, 2014 was a very trying year for me, but I’m still hoping that I’ll be able to turn that back around this year. And if you’re reading this right now, then you helped make my year at least a little bit better than it could have been, so I hope you have a jolly new year, everyone!
As far as Cel is concerned, there’s no point in trick-or-treating if you’re just going to be focused on the treats, you gotta hold up the other side of the gambit too. Plus it rounds out the costume pretty well.
Hope you all are having a lovely Halloween, everyone!
