TLDR: HEAVY WILL CRUSH YOUR OC LIKE BUG!


Here's an idea for a "let me draw your OC" type thread. Basically it's a first person perspective of Heavy Weapons Guy from Team Fortress 2 interacting with whatever OC is posted.


Beforehand, you make base images of Heavy offering someone a sandvich, petting something, firing his minigun, holding up his dukes like a boxer, holding the Pyro like a mini gun while he fires his flamethrower, and strangling something with one hand. Each OC would will be drawn into a copy of one of these base images.


Sandwich: Human children and harmless human women.


Pets: Sweet little creatures.


Boxer: Someone his own size.


Minigun: Competent fighters or whatever would be difficult to strangle or burn.


Pyro: Unholy/fetish-fuel or something Heavy wouldn't want to otherwise touch.


Strangle: Everything else (consider using this for competent fighters instead of minigun as well)


If you end up using strangle almost exclusively consider putting them together choreographed to Broady Quest.

I found this image looking up "fear grimace" :

It comes from some paper about facial expressions and monkey brains.

I might use it as a reaction image next time somebody confuses me.

If you saw these as stickers which would you rather put on your water bottle?


React with "Happy" for this one.

React with "=^meow^=" for this one.

Alternatively:

React with anything else for no preference.


Bonus Question: Would you eat a live desert rain frog for $100?

Here,I plan on posting work that may or may not make it onto the art portal along with art-related videos and tutorials I find interesting.

My first game in 6 years!

You play as a doberman who must find all 5 portions of turkey to save Thanksgiving!

Can you save Thanksgiving, and maybe find the secret area?


Update: 3.13/5.00 out of Judgement.

Things have definitely changed around Newgrounds.

In the dehumidifier, drier, fireplace, toilet, and upstairs bath.

You must find them before Thanksgiving is ruined forever!

I had a substitute teacher who looked like this.

We called her Miss Muffin.

What I remember from listening to art advise on YouTube all day:

- Maintain a daily habit of practice.

- Keep practice simple. Too much variety is counter-productive.

- Twitter is best for new artists.

- Do not send a potential employer your DeviantArt page.

- An OC is a reflection of the creator.

- Getting good at art takes time so be patient. Years, even a decade or more may pass before you are able to make a living as an artist.

This morning I took a face from a random thumbnail from YouTube and traced over it in Inkscape. I think it turned out quite well as compared to my previous work which only looks decent if I take the lines out. This was good practice for working out how to fit shapes together toward that goal, making use of the line-tapering path effect and getting used to Inkscape in general.
