Title: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on August 15, 2010, 10:48:43 AM
So... Hallo, raiders,

How about drawing fan art of characters in Manga raider's stories? Even if you don't know the story, what's stopping you from giving it a go?

(This is probably already done, so sorry if that's the case...)


So, i'll start with mine:

(http://i.imgur.com/GDJi7OJ.jpg)

It's not exactly original. Actually i only tweaked and colored it a little. Based on Coryn's Drawing:

(http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh319/Las7mans7anding/IMG2.jpg)


I've got two sketches i'm still working on so i'll posts those in time.


So... who's game?

Heh, in Coryn's drawing, his hand is in the pocket of his jeans, while in your it's in the pocket of his jacket. Just noticed that. (:

Furthermore, it looks pretty good. I wanted to try this too, but I've got a tan on my hands (which I still didn't start with).
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on August 15, 2010, 10:56:29 AM
Hehe, i was aiming at COMPLETE UNIQUENESS in my drawing. XD.

ooh, you're making a Tan? That's a tough one. Good luck wit it.

Thanks matsu!


And here is:

My illustration of Coryn perfoming the Cero Hoja, as he did in the Mortal Kombat topic. (I'm pretty sure its innacurate, Coryn, so sorry.)

(http://i.imgur.com/9BQdeeD.jpg)


And a redo of an old fanart. Coryn vs the powerful demon Mikaboshi!

(http://i.imgur.com/LgQDUHw.jpg)




I really should've used vector for this one, since there's the ugly white tearing. I'll make up with another one. Also searching for other MR stories to make fan art of... if people won't mind...
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 17, 2010, 02:04:52 PM
yeah the cero hoja thing is pretty inaccurate. not a bad attempt though. though i have to say coryn having a brown coat in all the pictures throws me off a bit. though i'm sure doing black would be kinda difficult
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on August 17, 2010, 02:17:47 PM
Actually black would be easier. I was trying to keep with the 'leather coat' thing. Though i realise black does exist. Hmm.

I'll do him justice when i get better or work on one more.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 17, 2010, 02:30:31 PM
well i do describe it as a black leather coat in the first place

Fan Art for Sai's Adventure, by Totsificer

Sai perfoming Blue Lightning! (An idea of how it'd be like...)

(http://i.imgur.com/az4TE91.jpg)


And a cover or something of Sai being haunted by those eyes...

(http://i.imgur.com/W74kwz0.jpg)

EDIT: For this I referred to this page. (Last panel, obviously):

http://i945.photobucket.com/albums/ad293/Tostificer/01_01.jpg

Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 19, 2010, 01:41:16 PM
nice job lego! the blue lightning looks pretty good
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Tostificer on August 19, 2010, 01:43:07 PM
Lookin' good! I love how the blue lighting moves all... weird in the first one. For the second one, I must say that Sai wasn't able to do lighting yet when he was in the real world. If he's ever going to go back... I'm not telling. Anyhow, I'm honored that anyone is actually willing to do fanart of MY story. That gets my hopes up, and my inspiration back to finish the chapter.

Furthermore, I love the color of the first one's jacket, although it's supposed to be more black than red. But I can think about it.

What amazed me is that you picked the exact same color I was thinking of for the clothes under the jacket. Like, exactly the same.

Also, I loved the text it said in the first one.

Edit: I simplified that one too much. He actually WAS able to do the lighting in the real world, only he had no idea of the existance of his pentagram.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 19, 2010, 01:45:27 PM
actually for that pic i figured the clothes would be green too. odd...
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Tostificer on August 19, 2010, 01:47:29 PM
I don't think ever mentioning that, have I? This is getting creepy...
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on August 19, 2010, 01:50:51 PM
Thanks Coryn xD! It gave me a lot o pain. Glad it worked out.


*bows* Glad you liked it Toasty. The Lightning was random, and the colors was just a stab in the dark. Had no idea they'd work out (to an extent. I suck at choosing jacket colors.  Anyway thanks!

Looking forward to work on the comic. Hope the inspiration helps!
 
EDIT: Coryn is a mind reader, by the way, so no surprise there. :D
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 19, 2010, 01:58:23 PM
maybe yes maybe no on the mind reading thing. its just when i saw the vertical lines on the clothing green was the first color to come to my mind. sure that sounds random but like i've explained before. my mind makes correlations
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Tostificer on August 19, 2010, 01:59:59 PM
I know. There was this conversation between me and socks, about elephants... And I mentioned thinking about alternative universes.

-"So what's in these universes?"

-"Coryn Sken. Loads of him."

-"Oh my. I think you should tell him that."

-"He knows... He knows..."
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 19, 2010, 02:00:47 PM
yeah i saw that. i thought it was kinda funny
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Tostificer on August 19, 2010, 06:30:22 PM
Hmm... I thought I had the solution for our mindreading thing. Haku, the shemale from the first episodes of Naruto, also wears green striped clothing. Although since Coryn said he didn't see Naruto, I'm not sure how he got to it. Maybe you ARE a mind reader Coryn.

(http://media.animegalleries.net/albums/Naruto/haku/naruto_haku0009.jpg?=123)

Btw, he's supposed to be a boy.

i have been known to predict stuff in my dreams. who knows
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Tostificer on August 19, 2010, 06:33:52 PM
The...?

I have a friend who can predict things. Remember the card game I play? I bought three boosters, and showed them to him without opening them. He told me which one would be the best, and what would be in it. He was right...
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Lirne on August 19, 2010, 06:39:31 PM
He guessed, it's all about luck.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 19, 2010, 06:42:34 PM
who knows. when i predict stuff i just have a random dream that is based on the events to follow. like when i predicted lego would be finished with the fan art of CS. that morning i was having a dream where he had finished the fan art. though it wasnt actually fan art but rather lifelike statues of the character spaced around my home town. but the point is the same. that dream is also how i learned what Sam's hair looked like
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Lirne on August 19, 2010, 06:45:55 PM
So, can you dream about if the world is going to end in 2012?
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 19, 2010, 06:48:51 PM
possible. though on all occasions just like with the fan art it happened the morning of so its not like it would change much
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Monsterful on August 19, 2010, 08:04:49 PM
Nice lighting effects Lego! this one was done in photoshop rite? I thought you said you dumped him for Illustrator XD.

Have old feelings come back? xD
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: matsurinoaoi on August 19, 2010, 10:06:24 PM
Good job on the coloring! I like the monochrome in the second one...Speaking of which...
*pokes one of the eyes*
*runs away laughing*
It was too tempting XD
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Tostificer on August 21, 2010, 10:28:34 AM
I just kinda noticed that there was a Fanart section for Monsterful, so it kinda got me worked out. And here's the result!

(http://i945.photobucket.com/albums/ad293/Tostificer/Line_02-2.jpg)

I also sent it to monsterful's email, so I hope that it gets on the site soon. Hope you guys like it!
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on August 21, 2010, 10:38:44 AM
There are distinct signs of ecchi here. Just look at Lawrence being shocked. Nice. I can't help but think either the heads are small or the bodies are big... a slight proportional skew...
But nice  anyways!


@ Coryn  Eh? What wizadry is this? predicting the future...
Making Statues would be interesting though... at the risk of sounding obsessive (yeah guys the storys that good)

@ Monster Thanks! It's Illustrator + Photoshop, so yeah... It convinced me two was better than one. XD. Suprised you remembered that post. I was planning on acting like i never wrote it. hehe.

@ Matsu why thanks!  Don't think the eye will like that though
*eye starts flying after Matsu*
*sigh* I told you...

Post by: Tostificer on August 21, 2010, 10:40:50 AM
Yeah, now I look at it, Lily's face is somewhat too small.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on August 21, 2010, 10:52:53 AM
Yeah i meant Lily (just noticed i was too general... Sooo tired atm). But everything else is pretty good. I like that the lining is precise.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 21, 2010, 11:50:38 AM
nice job toasty! hehe....

@lego- well it was just a dream. though it did give me the chance for my conscious mind to study Sam's physical in detail in an unconscious state. yay complicated statements
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Monsterful on August 21, 2010, 12:04:05 PM
nice toasty! I'll be sure to put it on
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: matsurinoaoi on August 21, 2010, 09:47:09 PM
Nice job, Toasty! Though I think that Lily's legs look a bit strange. But the body proportions look good!
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: SaiHawkeye on August 22, 2010, 06:14:01 AM
With the effort you're putting in, Lego, you'll greatly improve within the year. =)

You might want to give oekaki boards or even GIMP/photoshop a try. The learning curve for them is pretty high but with your ability it would be well worth the time.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on August 23, 2010, 05:09:36 AM
MORALE BOOST!
Thanks a lot, Sai! That' really encouraging! XD.

I've tried GIMP, but i'm too used to the photoshop interface. It's good, though, i realise that. \

Dunno what Oekaki boards are, though... ? ?


Now i do ^^. I'll definately try em out!
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Tostificer on August 28, 2010, 08:34:12 AM
I posted it in the Coryn's Saga Arc two topic, but I was requested to post it here too. It's Coryn Sken!

(http://i945.photobucket.com/albums/ad293/Tostificer/Scan_32.jpg)

I don't think Coryn himself would appreciate it if you'd comment on my drawing in his story thread. So please do it here!
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 28, 2010, 02:16:41 PM
nice attempt toasty! it looks good! strange though the hair seems to match the song i'm listening to right now. i like the expression too. he has a good look in his eyes. you've seemed to capture something but i'm not sure what it is
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Lirne on August 28, 2010, 02:34:50 PM
He looks like he is so sleep deprived.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Tostificer on August 28, 2010, 02:36:39 PM
Thanks! Although... How can hair match a song?!

Anyhow, I think the long face does the trick. It gives off the Coryn Sken feel... I think.

I'm not a Guru.

Edit: Yah. I guess.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on August 28, 2010, 02:43:11 PM
He looks like he is so sleep deprived.

thats one way to look at it i guess. but since he's my character i think i kinda see him in a different light the everyone else so thats why i saw it more as a look expressing sadness

Thanks! Although... How can hair match a song?!

Ask not for explanation. Ask not for logic. Ask only to see what is.

I think the long face does the trick. It gives off the Coryn Sken feel... I think.

well he's modeled after myself and my face is kinda long so it all works out.

Your art is getting a lot better, Lego. It's good to see that you're being more confident with the size you're drawing them at. That will help you improve even more over time.
Title: Re: MR fanart

Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: SaiHawkeye on October 02, 2010, 03:50:20 AM
One very important thing to consider when drawing is that the bigger you make the image, the more details you can add to it. It also looks nicer when you export the image and reduce its size. That will make the lines look a lot cleaner.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on October 02, 2010, 04:01:42 AM
I'll definitely keep that in mind.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on October 02, 2010, 04:24:59 AM
interesting. on the technical side though the coat you drew is like half again taller than he is. also it wouldnt have the gigantic split down the back. the way i see the coat it would only be like a foot in length.

and on a story note he always looks to be around 19 as it is. age means nothing in teh way of appearance for him.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Tostificer on October 02, 2010, 06:05:27 AM
Nice, Lego! Love them, very much.

Yet, could you tell me who are the guys? I don't really know a lot of stories around, and I have my ideas on who they could be, but I'm not sure.

getting warmer sugar but not quite. adamas is obsolete and can be ignored since you wont find anymore than the few pages of that thread. the second link is for life and times which is a series of short stories for the universe.

then there are the two main arcs that i have so far. they are what i call my story and are titled Coryn's SAga.

WIP of Shiro. Sorta tied up learning my new style so i'll get back to it when i can. Regardless tell me your thoughts i'd like to tweak it in the final go. Note that i wanted to go for an aloof sort of drawing so yes the lines are meant to be a little sketchy ^^

I wish i remembered his theme song though...
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on October 07, 2011, 11:18:08 PM
hehe. epic lego! easily your best coryn yet! the lanky proportions you've got going add this weird epicness to it.

ps. the defacto theme song is Animal I Have Become by Three Days Grace. since you know. god complex and all. but really its more of a changing thing for different moods. so yeah. it's kinda whatever someitmes.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on October 08, 2011, 09:38:05 AM
Glad you liked it! Lanky look was experimental so i'm happy it worked. I wanted to draw some slashed up figures in the back but i wasn't sure what to add, anyway i thought it'd detract from the main focus.

Ah i thought that song was appropriate. Listened to it while working on it once. But then it was megatron dubstep remix from then on.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Tostificer on October 08, 2011, 12:18:07 PM
I've loved Three Days Grace for aaaaaaages. Song fits Coryn's character well!

Also... *applauds*

Damn lego, you're improving like... Wow... May I compliment you on the movement in this drawing? It's not as static as your other drawings are, it's way more dynamic. AWESOME dude!
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on October 08, 2011, 01:49:39 PM
Thanks toasty! And yeah you have no idea. I was surprised too, i looked at the first page of this topic and i was like 'wot?"

I'm more appreciative of the support i got here now. I won't evr gripe again of getting no favs in DA or anything like that, noticing the improvement was one of the greatest moments eva! If i wasn't so lazy today i'd have gone out for celebratory drinks.

Hmmm, movement huh. Well yeah i guess so. I'll be aiming for more things like that.

and it's pretty much a given that you'd like TDG.

In case you were wondering:

Lily is there because she was 'convinced' by Lawrence.

Jacob is there because Sapphire ordered him to be.

Michelle is there because she followed Jacob.

the rest is obvious... XD

Hope you like. I'm ever more appreciative of what monster has to go through to draw these characters. I completely forgot my lessons and just drew madly without following the teachings. Sorry! It won't happen again!

Jack Frost.

Yes, i know i completely missed the instructions. I only realised a bit later since i wasn't able to go online and read the description for a while.

Slapping on another name for the guy would just be cheating. I mean, he looks a little like you described, right?

Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on March 03, 2012, 04:58:37 PM
not a bad drawing lego! you definitely did a really good job with his facial expression!

few things to mention i guess. proportioning is off. his feet are like twice the size of his head. which on that note you should study the look of cowboy boots a bit more. you've got them being very round and tall. cowboy boots tend to be slimmer with a square toe.

other than that it'd say have his weapons being more prevalent. I see you have the claymore but the M4 and katana should be visible as well. as well as the guns hanging from his belt should be seen. as a character he likes to rely on the fact that he looks extremely dangerous at first glance.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on March 03, 2012, 05:05:53 PM
Thanks Coryn! I'll be sure to fix up those parts. I did try to draw in the weapons but i wasn't sure if they would show with the position i drew him in. I'll work with him some more

Oh dude it's so awesome that you picked up on that haha! As a ninja I gave him an akatsuki coat instead of a trenchcoat.



btw any raiders who want to be in this sketchy thingie can post their descriptions in the canon guide or here if you want me to draw ya.

Gaah! That's terrible. I'll fix that when I go in with thinner lines. Hasith's headband too.

And I would like the tan reference very much. I just googled that ish.

I will search my encyclopedic knowledge of MR-canon for anything that can help.

for writer-tan i was able to scavenge up this image. done by matsu.

(http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh319/Las7mans7anding/writertanblue.png) (http://s259.photobucket.com/user/Las7mans7anding/media/writertanblue.png.html)

There were others, but i'm afraid matsu's images have long since broken, and the host site seems to have disappeared from the net. This one only survives since I saved it back in the day.

Hm I do remember seeing someone in a similar outfit on an anthology, but I thought that was for Arcane Judgement >..> It would be something to look into in any case


Yeah that pretty much helps. I'm only doing headshots with trenchcoats anyways. I'll be making other writer tan attempts next year for sure though.

You shouldn't feel shy about it Lorenx, I'm sure there are plenty around here who would draw in confidence for you. (I'd offer myself, but I can't draw and frankly I'm a gossipy bitch.)

Fair enough. fine, lets just say this: i would like a drawing of a woman with short black hair, and a male character wearing a beret-like hat, and a trenchcoat. moderately young, normal weight. nothing fancy. and the girl will be wearing a shirt, vest, and a skirt (not short). its up to you who you think those people are.

And saved. I shall reamass my collection of MR related goods.

About Writer-tan, though I really like the basic design of quill and scroll I'm thinking since matsu is gone (cries inside) we should maybe update her a little. Not much has been done as far as official representations of MR go but I'm feeling we should get around to putting a face to the forum in a more concrete fashion.

Male....trenchcoat....and you've described about half of us. Maybe I'm just bad at context clues? Either way, hope you get someone to help.

We'll I'm for keeping writer-tan the way she is. I like the design, and it reminds me of matsu. So maybe we shoudl concentrate on fleshing out those we haven't seen? I mean we basically have MR-tan, Writer-tan, and the Ecchi twins set up already. So that would leave us to concentrate on Pub-tan and Art-tan.

Pub-tan's personality has already been touched on, Art-tan is pretty well a blank slate though.

i dont like any of the tans. i feel their not "-tan" enough. perhaps make them more cuter and refined.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on December 17, 2013, 03:45:49 PM
Well I don't think tan are required to be super cute. It's certainly the normal way of looking at them but I've seen tans about which aren't. And really I don't think any of the current designs aren't cute. You can always draw them in a cuter style.

That's also why I suggest working on the two we haven't really touched. Put your stamp on something new!

@Coryn: I'm just suggesting more defined features and official outfits to portray their respective anthropomorphic origin. Plus when people join the site they don't really get the feeling we have a mascot.

@Loren: I agree with that, the -tans should be defined more with cutesy or distinct personalities.

I've gone through that topic and it kind of died so I assumed nobody was doing that anything. Figured I'd bring it up here cause technically it would be MR fanart.

Also, yeah, someone needs to get on making a logo, lego. We should at least have a topic for that.

I don't think that topic has died? It's just set for new years I think. >..> ? And yeah MR Logo we could make a topic for that too somewhere

@ Coryn No actually I do agree with MR Tan and Writer Tan staying the same in their core features. I mean matsu and monster made them, it'd feel wrong to toss them out.

Since Art tan and Pub tan aren't that developed they could be transformed into whatever uber-cutesy form people envision.

And to be honest at the hands of let's say lords any of the tans designs could be turned into nosebleed cuteness, just need the right artist

Now, when you say "short hair," how short are we talking? Like, pixie-cut short? Shorter bob-cut short? Just-higher-than-the-neck-but-not-lower-than-the-ears short?

Well actually it's a bit different than that. We're establishing an annual mascot, which is separate from the tans. Each year we plan to have a new contest, create a new mascot, and so far talks with hasith to put it up in a banner for the site have been promising.

So yeah, we're essentially creating a series mascot.

I assume you can name it whatever you want. The rules so far basically boil down to: Draw a mascot or two and we'll all choose the best one.

Krema and Noche from Lunacy. It felt like a pity having to put a plague-doctor's mask on her face. Also, I have no idea what sort of victorian dress she'd wear... Anyways, hope you like


The MR Banner thing will be chilling for a while longer while I explore the traditional scene. Still have the file though so it'll be polished up. I think I may just end up drawing a traditional version, or at least drawing everyone one by one.

@Walter understood. Be sure to update the Biometrics topic with your deets for future reference.


And with that (And more 'on a whim' added characters) I've completed the final expansion. I'll just work on something new if I left anybody else out, as it is the resolution is screaming at me to stop. No layers to work with is problematic like that.

It's been fun, but on to newer stuff. Was fun to draw though. Forgot about some of these member names until I saw AD's work on them, and some workshops on drawing Raiders. Was an interesting trip down memory lane.

I know this is finished, but I just want to point out that Nyxy and Rob's Ugly artwork are potential candidate's that are missing, I thinks. Nyxy does make an appearance in the canon. However, the only problem with her is that she doesn't have an official canon description to go off of (However I do think she has a character description in Coryn's bunige forum group, although I'm not entirely sure). And Rob is Rob, who I'm pretty sure needs no further explanation.

Takes a certain amount of cool to pick out your Afro while wielding a sword at the same time.

And yes, eukocar’s design is just pure gold. Greentrap looks pretty interesting as well.

Great work as usual Lego!

Lolyeah, that's just about right, especially with the weird ways the shaved parts of my hair have grown back. Never thought about using a magic staff, but I can totally write that into the canon.

The staff fits with the whole witch gimmick. Don't you use a hammer too, or is that just my imagination?

I need to be as good at canon as Frono. I forgot you used a hammer. I'm so used to everyone having katanas it never computers. What kind of hammer is it anyway Mahlua? Also time to listen to MC Hammer because puns.

@Frono I saw his description and instantly regretted having a flesh and blood persona. I wish I was a skeleton

I made one of these a while back when my art was even more pleb than it is now. I did one of you Lego but it was a total guess and waaaaaaay off now that I know you better.

Well yeah let's do it then. I'm pretty sure I've drawn you already on the cover spread so I have an idea what to come up with. I'll work on it!

Check out the story if you have the time. I find it to be truly a shounen I'd enjoy to read as a manga some day through and through. A nice use of the shounen elements with a creative world, and some pretty sweet action too.

(Lel by the way this MR Fanart topic is technically supposed to be this sort of fanart - for stories by raiders - so there's lots of canon characters as well but yeah don't forget that lel.)

Ok, tiny update. Sketched out 3 raiders out of an undetermined number of raiders. The concept I'm going for is, MR as a high school battle anime. Think Kill la Kill, with Hero Members being 3 stars, senior members being 2 stars, etc etc!

See if you can guess who these 3 are! Look forward to the finished versions, and more raiders (don't hold your breath though, this was hard!)

Spoiler

Weird coincidence that all 3 happen to have glasses as well this time  :hmm:
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on June 21, 2018, 07:43:07 AM
Hmmm.... Lego, Mahlua, and Manimal?

You better draw more Raiders Devola! Those three are freaking cool! (And I am high key in love with how you put the glow on the eyes to match their powers)
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on June 21, 2018, 05:25:33 PM
Holy Crapatoly is that awesome Devola! I feel bad for even attempting to make this as some sort of exhange, you nailed it haha!

And my guess is The Manimal too... Or is it OGHM by any chance?

Mahlua looking dangerous as heck. I don't trust that laugh! Those eyes mean business.

Dude this is seriously cool haha. Thanks man!


@Mahlua Oh gawwwd I still haven't overcome my natural aversion to such things. Not that I'm competing with Coryn but my boobs are bigger (in theory)

I don't even know who's responsible for that debaucle. Loremaster Frono, have you read it? I can't. I just can't.

Mahlua looks like a straight up psychopath and I'm loving it.


This is awesome, devola! Looks like us canon writers gotta get a Kill La Kill MR fanfic going now.

@Lego: If you're referring to Mahlua's Gender bending Conundrums story, then yes, the Junior Loremaster of all things Canon has indeed read that story and very much enjoyed it.

Coincidentally the first name for my specific diagnosis was "Autistic Psychopathy"... :sure:

Don't get jealous now Lego. We're above petty squabbles over breast size. After all, we all know that what matters most isn't volume, but shapeliness.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: legomaestro on June 21, 2018, 09:34:43 PM
I concur on shapliness, but there's poinst on the curve where volume and shape approach perfectness.

@Mahlua I meant In-Universe reason. I'm guessing ecchi-twins but not sure. Yeaup I know it's from your canon story... Also that is quite the interesting diagnosis

@Frono Good to know. One day I'll have enough whisky to survive a read. One day.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: MahluaandMilk on June 21, 2018, 09:38:52 PM
Oh yeah it was totally the Twins' fault.

The diagnoses was formerly referred to Asperger's Syndrome after the dude who discovered it but that was too special so now it's just plain old Autism I guess. I still find it hilarious that Mr. Asperger's original name for it involved the word "psychopathy". Makes me feel like I can make all the anime villain jokes about myself.

You'll need more than whiskey if you're that sensitive to it. Remember, the whole story is absolutely...meowgical.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: devola on June 22, 2018, 06:56:03 PM
Added 1 more! Who could this mysterious character be?

(It's very unlikely anyone will guess who this is supposed to be)

That makes 4 so far, I've got plans to do 2 more, after that we'll see where it goes! I've taken to calling this the MR Battle-verse, a meta version of a high school battle anime where your MR OC's must battle each other to graduate or something like that.  ;D

If someone wants to write a canon for this stupid side story, be my guest!

Spoiler
(https://i.imgur.com/T6BrtGw.png)

-small addendum, I've decided I'm going to have fun with this and will be doing finished/coloured versions, so look forward to that! As for the story, in order to have some fun with this lets get some writers involved, if you want to contribute story ideas to the MR battle verse or write scenarios, send me a DM!

Post by: Coach Fro on June 22, 2018, 07:25:35 PM
Echo_River? Corycaly? Yeah I got no clue.

She looks great though, whoever she is lol!

I had a MR fanfic idea consisting of a No More Heroes styled story where raiders have to fight one another for the spot of number one hero and the prize of the last known manga series to exist, in a alternate universe where manga has pretty much gone extinct.

I'll write it one day, hopefully...   
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on June 22, 2018, 10:05:59 PM

Muahaha, no one will know! (I would very surprised if anyone did manage to figure it out)

Lmao, I feel like I've built this up too much, it's really not that big of a surprise or anything but maybe the mystery will keep it fun  ;) I'll give a hint though, it's in the hair!

WIP Update! Manimal and Mystery Girl coloured sketches are complete!

Spoiler
(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/357324044472811530/459926431447777290/unknown.png)

The next few will be about this quality, sorry I'm not finishing these like my usual work but since I'm doing this for fun I kind of just want to go about it without sweating too much over the details. After I finish the next two, I will pick 2 more raiders semi-randomly and when I have time, I will chip away at this until there's a nice roster! Please look forward to the next 2... Mahlua and Lego!

By the way, you are more than welcome to write a stat sheet/backstory/powers and abilities for your character if I end up drawing you!

From a character design standpoint, she's a dead ringer for TsukioLoli, but that would be a pretty deep dive...hell, it was a deep dive back in like, 2013 when Lego brought her up in DOTS...
Title: Re: MR fanart

Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coach Fro on June 23, 2018, 12:19:52 PM
My last guess would be AnimeDoodler, but that’s an even bigger reach than Tsuki.

But from a design standpoint she reminds me a lot of a samurai chick from this fighting game called Under Night In Birth. Can’t remember her name for the life of me though.

Edit: Never mind, found her. Her name is Yuzuriha.

Now that's just cheating Devola.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: devola on June 23, 2018, 01:40:08 PM
Yep she definitely took on Yuzu by the time I was finishing up. Initially, I based her design off Baiken (https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/guilty-gear/images/4/44/Baiken_Rev2_%28HD%29.png/revision/latest?cb=20170703015802) from Guilty Gear but it felt a bit generic since I wasn't going to give her a claw arm or eyepatch. I changed more of the outfit to have modern elements and she ended up taking on Yuzu's appearance though it still works out for what I was going for.

The fact that she has a ponytail and was inspired by fighting game characters is a clue in of itself though saying that might be a dead give away ¯\_(?)_/¯
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coach Fro on June 23, 2018, 03:31:57 PM
I was definitely thinking Baiken too. She has a great design. Hell all of the Guilty gear characters have great designs. Jam and Chip Zanguff will forever be my favorites.

If this person is a raider then I got no clue. Had I been active these past two years I would’ve narrowed down the suspects without much effort. Unfortunately I wasn’t, and I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of raiders that has come and gone during my absence.
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: Coryn on June 23, 2018, 04:38:52 PM
Ugh. I'm still drawing a blank. So don't beat yourself up. I've been through the guide, the Raider biometrics topic, and racked my memory. Either she's and npc, or someone who simply hasn't actually told anyone about her physical description besides Devola. Either way, I suspect he's having a laugh.
Title: Re: MR fanart

It's me  8)
I know, I know! It's a grill! I felt like there were too many dudes and I have an upper limit of how many guys I can draw before I want to draw a girl. I figure it'd be better to gender bender myself than someone unwilling. Anyway, I suppose this is as good a time to share something about me.

If you look at my work, you will find I put pony tails literally everywhere, I dunno something about that hair style is just really appealing to me. Or I could just be lazy as well haha.

Secondly, I'm a HUGE fighting game enthusiast. I've been playing Guilty Gear since the very first one, I was competitive in Blazblue up until Central Fiction (I just play casually now) and Street Fighter Third Strike + Street Fighter 4 (I'm not a huge fan of Street Fighter 5 though I have competed in it). This year, I'm going to EVO again as well and I regularly make trips back to Japan to play at Mikado @ Tadakanobaba

I warned you it would be disappointing!

Post by: Coach Fro on June 25, 2018, 08:37:08 PM
I had feeling it was a possibility, but it sounded too obvious.

But it's cool seeing another fighting game player here on the forum. I personally never competed seriously in any fighting game I've played (Although I did compete in a street fighter 5 charity tournament in my hometown of Chicago that I went 1-2 in. That was my first ever tournament, and my first time playing street fighter 5). I'm mostly an online scrub/ stream monster that follows the fgc from the shadows. I play pretty much every fighting game under the sun, but I mostly stick with the capcom games. Third strike, street fighter 4 and ultimate marvel vs capcom 3 are the fighting games I'm the most competent in. And I share your sentiments on sf5. It's cool and even fun at times, but it just doesn't do it for me.

We gotta exchange info, Devola. Would love to play you sometime. You'll probably body me in some anime fighters though, lol. 
Title: Re: MR fanart
Post by: devola on June 25, 2018, 09:01:54 PM
Yesssss I love fighting new people. I mostly play Xrd Rev2, and Central Fiction. I'm casually playing Cross Tag at the moment, but I would love to have a few bouts! I'm OK at Street Fighter 5 but it's been a while, I actually enjoy watching that game more than playing it. I'll PM you my Steam.

I just hope I remember some things correctly. I know that's not exactly what everyone was wearing in the story, but y'know...

Anyway, I'm like 60% sure LegoC is green, so hence the green nekomimi additions, I hope Coryn's hair doesn't look too weird (I was going for dirty blonde), my clothes were based on the Genderqueer flag (purple, white, green), Everlastin accidentally looks like something out of Scooby Doo, and the background is about the pink-girl blue-boy dichotomy although you could argue that it's just the trans flag in reference to the fact that everyone got genderbent. (Is that offensive? I feel like some people would find that offensive..)

Glad to see you finish it!

Honestly, my real hair was always super bright blonde on top, then turning black on the sides and lower back. But that's not an easy thing to explain to people, so "blonde" is a good default setting.

Other than that, it feels like I just have, a massive hand  :ohmy:

Yes, and there's going to be phases and everything and singular shows and crossover events and you better believe our Thanos will be something to tremble at.

Ecchiworld sells itself by the title alone. I'm still shocked Hasith managed to find that domain name.

And yes, I do enjoy doing Raider art, like a lot. I don't breathe the universe as some of the others do (you guys can pick up facts I forgot a long ago) but I have a general feel and connection to it and it's just a lot of fun. AnimeDoodler is really who I look up to - She really did a lot for building up the visual side of the forum.

@Coryn domo arigatou Mr. Roboto! And yeah, I was sort of hoping people didn't notice the hat. I went with a pure black and I guess it's an epic fail in showing it fit on the head. I think I should do a workshop for that.

@Mahlua well he did say he is the
Quote
The fearsome, dreaded "Bed wraith that won't participate in Spookyween because he just wants peace and quiet". Behold as I fluff my pillow and proceed to nap through the night.

Ah, yes, about that. I happen to know about the hair situation of other Raiders that have changed interim. Unless specifically stated in canon I go with the in canon description because it would be murder on my short term memory to keep track of every physical change that a raider irl goes through so yeah... Update your Canon description! For now though I'll keep in mind to keep your hair short . (While you're at it you might as well specify what kind of witch you are because I'll just go Little Witch Academia and be done with it lel.

I've been wondering about that actually. I should really write my character info. Trouble is I'm not really a writer, and I'm also not a reader very much, so It's almost out of my domain (I know I could always do art but meh). I'm very out of touch with the Canon and the stories.

Well, getting a bio written is always a good place to start. And there are plenty of examples up there these days in the guide (examples which need a severe amount of standardization, but still)

It's fun to just kinda think about it though. Yah just have to think a little at a time, and suddenly it's a lot. All narrative work is like that I suppose.

LATE. I think I might some need some tuning up on the clockwork ha ha... *winds up*
Love how you added a little MR touch to it with the crosses on the shirts - at least that's what it looks like.

Cheers Echo! It was pretty fun to do. Also punctuality is totally not my super power, so no biggie there. I wish I was exact as a clock sometmies.

And yes, those were MR-uniform inspired crosses haha. Glad you noticed!

(Inspired by a card game I had. I could've been more photoshoppy but maybe another century. Too lazy.)




To Cory and Hasith san : Thank you for making this forum. I get so used to enjoying my my daily life online here that I forget that this place really is one of a kind created because people came up with an idea and made something of it. I really don't say it enough to be honest.

 At my happiest moments I log in to make a random new topic, at my saddest I've always just dropped in to lurk and see what is happening on the forum. I can type the address to this place blind.

The best kind of people gather here - Supportive, nice, friendly and I've made some true friends along the way as a result. So thank you Corycaly, thank you Hasith.

Be aware there shall be more fanart of you guys in the future haha.
