TIME TO UNVEIL MY DESIGN SUBMISSIONS
I held off on it because I wanted to do one single big masterpost of them, so… here it is!
Now, because of a wisdom teeth extraction and baffling computer problems, I was unable to do much arting at all for roughly a week and a half. I like to think I’d have been able to submit more stuff otherwise, but as it is I managed to finish 6 designs (of 10 available slots) and I think that’s a good haul. Without further ado:
This one was supposed to be for last year’s design contest, but for whatever reason I was under the impression the deadline was several days later than it actually was, and ended up tweaking this one for several days past the deadline. It did mean that I had very little to fix this time around, and I got to submit this one pretty early on. Woo!
This is my only non-vectorized submission. The original is a 600dpi manga studio file, and I happened to have kept her on her own layer, so I was able to isolate her and make a design around her. Not much to say about this one.
When the Sylph is in, she sets up a cardboard booth and makes you listen to stuff you don’t really want to hear. When the Seer is in, she crashes down on a malfunctioning jet-pack, rises up from the fire and ashes like a furious goddess, and makes you do stuff you don’t really want to do. It’s way less sexy than it sounds, but at the same time way more hardcore.
Hoo boy. I began this one while recovering from surgery, and struggled with it as my computer kept freezing and crashing on me for reasons unknown. I rolled back updates, cleaned the tower’s guts, removed components, added components, all for the sake of finishing what I began. After some point this stopped looking like a drawing and started looking like random colorful shapes spelling out despair and pain. No design has ever caused me this much frustration. Motherfucker better be dang worth it, is all I’m saying.
This was actually meant to spell “Scourgelings” but I typoed it on the submission form and it didn’t seem worth it to resubmit the whole thing for a single character. All the more because the original submission was approved and went up about an hour or so before [S] Seer: Remem8er rolled out, which felt to me almost like a sign from the gods. Not to mention, after the update, the contest was sure to be deluged with Scourge Sister-related stuff, and I thought it important to stay ahead of the wave, so to say. ;D
Since my first assemble design was so frustrating, I wanted to try my hand at it again with something simpler and more playful. And man, let me tell you. Don’t let this design pull the wool over your eyes; it may look simple and playful, but was anything but. I utterly failed at the simple and playful part of the exercise.
That said this is still pretty dang great, even if I had to do most of the detailing and polishing at my job’s computer with a malfunctioning mouse because my sister took over half this last week with emergency home-shopping and cleaning sprees. The title is as corny as it gets and I think that fits the tone, too. Simpler times!
