06/27/15-06/28/15 Dickhiskhan Speedrun Layout

And finally the last of the series of Dickhiskhan commissions! The first piece I did for him was a layout for his special, and I end it with another layout! This time for his speedruns!! It’s pretty similar of course designwise, why fix what isn’t broken right?

The lining and coloring phases was pretty easy compared to the sketching phase considering most of the difficult work was already out of the way. There’s really not much else I have to say about it, check the description on the sketch for more information:…

This one gave me a lot of trouble for a lot of reasons. Aside from irl stuff getting in the way because I was in the process of moving and all there was the fact that I just don’t really know how to draw anthromorphic animals that well, especially muscly ones like the ones from Battletoads. The pose I chose was also stupid hard, as the most notable part of the game I could think of was the surfing section, which if you look at the sprite… it’s pretty complex. But the worst part… THE HAND OH GOD THE FUCKING HAND I HATE HANDS SOOOOOO MUCH.

Coloring this was pretty easy cause there wasn’t much complicated about the picture, except for the little orange “shine” at the end of the blade, which still looks a bit awkward to me but that’s what it looks like on the sprite so whatever. The beam that came out of the sword I just used the blur tool to make it look more like a beam of light, and I think it works fine. His skin color probably looks really weird to you but that’s also another thing I based on what the color of the sprite was.

Phew, this one was kind of refreshing compared to the last one. This one doesn’t have a detailed background or anything, just a simple ninja. For this piece I decided the best drawing to represent the series would be just him hacking and slashin, so I drew based off the sprite. I was considering giving him a hat and a beard like most of the other avatars but I felt it wouldn’t be fitting for a ninja to have his mouth uncovered and also it’d look weird for a ninja to have a hat. Also believe it or not the beam itself is that big in game! Weird NES sprite for the win I guess.
