Versus: Day 6


Today was the first day I struggled a bit. I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to focus on drawing things I’m familiar with rather than always trying something new. I would also (as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before) like to try and keep things simple. Not spend hours trying to do something better than the day before. No more of that. Tomorrow I’m just going to keep things simple and not spend hours drawing. There, I’ve written it down on here a few times so far, so I have to listen eventually! Right?

What I drew today is pretty much a comic panel.  I have some books on comic drawing and I might read some tonight so I can try some more comic panel drawing tomorrow. I re-used and edited a couple creatures from my stash today. I threw them together to see how well they would mesh. They definitely look like they are from two completely different worlds, but I love that! Reminds me of Marvel Vs Capcom 2, where you had sprite characters that were clearly from completely different video game series’! Actually, I should somehow do this with some of my other creations. Like a mash-up of everything I’ve done. Whoa, that would be kinda neat actually. I’ll probably never follow through with that idea! It sounds neat in my head, but in practice I don’t think it would work at all as the creatures and worlds I create are too different from one another.

I want to draw people in the future. I mean, well… obviously I want to draw future-people, like with laser guns and stuff, but I mean sometime in the near-future I want to try drawing people. I have to suck it up and just see what I end up with. I know it’ll suck for awhile, as I’ve always avoided drawing people, but I’ll post it anyways. Then continue doing it for a week, or longer, to see if there’s any change. We’ll see. I’m no good at planning things out! I suck at planning almost as much as I suck at drawing people.

    it’s interesting that both creatures have no arms so they could be from the same world just one is armoured and the other is natural, anyways reminds me of that pokemon episode where mewtwo was revealed and he had crazy armour on and totally wiped out ash’s pokemon

      Yeah, the green guy never had arms so when I was thinking of a versus type thing, I remembered my robot sketch was very similar. Thought it would be a nice match up because of the similarities. Wonder if I could pull of a comic-style battle between the two heh to see who would win 😉

  • Brad Thornhill

    does that robot have guns as feet? just looks like it on his left foot

    • Rob Chapman

      Indeed he does! More like rocket feet though. Like Iron Man 🙂

    There’s an idea you can incorporate into your possible future Web comic in one of the issues there could be some kind of civilization that put creatures against like killer robots and see who wins! nature vs tech!! 😀 just a thought
