That freakin dragon Grim Matchstick in Cuphead’s been giving me more trouble than I care to admit. I will say though, he did inspire me to do some fiery shenanigans with Candice, particularly showing how cartoony she could be when very angry/at her limits (yes the fact that Grim’s head transforms like that has inspired that second pic pfft)

Also figured with how dangerous but capable Candice can be, I figured she could use cartoon logic to extend her wick and use it like a fiery whip to strike some suckers. vuv)/ Poor Lucy and Bulby though, aheh…

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!

So uh… I really love Cuphead. Fantastic game, even if the word of it being a soul-crusher is true. Playing it for a while, I became inspired to make my own 30s-esque cartoon character concept…

Light Bulbs!

Or rather, “Lady Light” Lucy and Bulby!

I was never too sure on what exactly to make of their dynamic as I was designing them, but in the end I think it’d be interesting and rather unexpected to have this be some sorta mother-son team of sorts? Probably not CRIME FIGHTERS per se but there’s definitely potential if this were to be for a comic, and I figured Lucy’d be a pretty capable lady while still minding her composure once dealing with trouble, all while looking out for her son.

And yes, I did base Bulby off of a Bob-Omb, ‘cause I always did like the base design of Bob-Ombs and figured it’d make a cutely shaped side-kick sorta character.

So ye, here, have Lucy and Bulby! All thanks to my love and appreciation for what Cuphead has done as a game. vuv)/

- The OR -

anonymous asked:

I love everything about birds; can you tell us about F5? What's the backstory? Why are they called F5? How do they feel about Gary and Bulby?

F5 doesn’t really have much of a backstory except for that Gary and Buddy stumbled into him on Route 1:

Gary named him ‘F5′ after tornadoes (more info through the link), and as for how he feels about his new team:

Thanks for the ask! I hope most of his answers were satisfactory. :>
