With another new ‘Naut now in the beta for Awesomenauts, it makes the vast differences in the quality between the old and new ‘Nauts more apparent. It’s even more apparent when you see the utterly ridiculous flailing legs of the oldest of the cast. It looks really silly when you actually look at it, especially in comparison to the likes of Penny and the new Scoop (of Justice!).
So I decided to revisit an old little thing that I had done and take another stab at it. Plus I went over my process a little bit! Hope you guys like it!

I was supposed to be making more tiles and some background objects, but I just couldn’t get in the mood to draw inanimate things. My brain wanted to draw life!
Still experimenting with pushing face shapes and exaggerating features a bit. Could probably push it a little further, but I like how things look for now.
Also, the girl on the bottom right. After I drew her I could swear I’ve seen a similar design somewhere and it is bothering me to no end that I can’t remember where. :/

Something out of left field today. Somehow got stuck thinking of Earthworm Jim, which was ridiculously nostalgic.
Really made me want to go and play the two I’ve still got on the SNES, but then I remembered the horror that was the “Down the Tubes” and “Tube Race” levels…

Been a while since I’ve done an Awesomenauts picture. Haven’t even drawn the latest ‘Nauts that have been released.
To remedy that here’s Skree, worshipper of all things technologic and the latest ‘Naut in the Starstorm DLC!

Drawin’ a bunch of heads
Trying to simplify and exaggerate things with some designs while working on expressions and anatomy at the same time

Did some turnarounds for the four wizards in our game.

Probably put more time into this than was necessary though, especially since I’m probably going to have to redraw them all.
We’re having trouble keeping the characters consistent between myself, who designs the characters, and the sprite artist, who does what the name implies and arts the sprites.
Aside from us just messing with the designs in some way each time we draw them, we have completely different drawing styles. The characters always come out looking really different depending on who drew them.
So we’re each doing head turns of the four characters and I’m going to try to make a style that we both can use.

Admittedly, I really needed the practice in drawing some of these angles and differentiating characters. Focused a lot on the latter, making sure they all looked unique before i started putting hair or even color on them. May have pushed it a bit a little far, but once again, probably going to end up redrawing them anyways.

Making more tiles
Bought a program that’s supposed to smooth over a lot of the tile sheet process and helps create a lot of tiles that would otherwise be annoying to make. However, quickly found out it doesn’t handle tiles beyond 64x64 pixels very well, so a lot of its utility might be lost on this project. :/
Still it’s a really helpful program and I’ll make the most of it. Would really like to put it to use if any lower-res projects roll around.

Finished…?
Tried coloring in the armor examples, but they start taking attention away from the characters too much. Still might work on it some more, like maybe messing around with the colors a little bit.
Next I want to do up a bunch of possible heads for the characters and expressions.

I’ve been going over all the stuff I’ve done over the past year trying to get a new portfolio together. Sadly, and I’m not sure if it’s due to my current mood or anything, I just don’t see using a lot of what I’ve made.There’s only a few things that really jump out at me and even though I’m happy with the rest of it, I think I can do better. And so I shall! Hopefully…
So anyways, I’ve been whittling away at this for the past week or so. Not colored or anything yet. Mostly thanks to another discovery that I’ve made that I’ve gotten really really slow since I’ve stopped doing my dailies…
Also want to fancy up some of the stuff I’ve done for the wizard game that I’ve been working on so I can stick that in my portfolio too.

More color palette tests on the wizrards! Plus some actual clothes for the Forge Wizard!

It’s kinda awkward just calling them Girl Wizard, Other Girl Wizard, Necromancer, and Forge Wizard though. Hope I don’t cause any problems telling everyone their names.

  • Far left is Susannah or Sue
  • The tiny one with the scarf is Mya
  • Our pasty faced necromancer is Phil
  • And lastly is our buff forgemaster, Qamar

Their names aren’t exactly set in stone though and we might end up changing them in the future. Still, it’s easier to refer to them with actual names than “____ Wizard.”

Some rough sprite mock-ups… some more serious than others.
Lotta talks about proportions, clothing styles, and a LOT of talks about who’s going to be doing what. Also a lot of vacations going on in our little group making it hard to get everyone in one place at once.
I actually have ideas for real clothes for the Forge Wizard (the guy on the far right who’s only wearing a speedo), but brainfarts happened and sooo…… speedo.

Been far too incredibly long since I’ve drawn like this or even fully colored something. Kinda ended up looking like a Sadida from Wakfu/Dofus now that I look at it…
