More like "Cliche Fighter IV"

So the art challenge this week was "Zombie vs. Pirate vs. Ninja vs. Werewolf vs. Alien vs. Russian", in the style of Street Fighter 4 ink splatter. Due to much complaining from the rest of the artists at work, this was then cut down to "your choice of three". I'm such a bad-ass through I did all of them and threw in a robot for good measure.

Alas, I didn't win this week (although I swear I was the closest to the actual style) but I only really had 2 days to work on it, as opposed to everyone else's 2 weeks.

In other news: This is post #199! Whatever am I going to do for post #200?!? MYSTERY.

I know my posting habits have been fairly lax/erratic the last month or so... but there may be a delay before can do anything suitably awesome to commemorate it properly.

Zug Zug.

So, once upon a time I did a bunch of art for a game that never really happened. Many tears were shed, but such is the way sometimes. Imagine my surprise then, when one of the games our interns are working on is using my art... Mixed emotions for sure.

I never really finished that art though... at the time the thought of animating the Ogre attack seemed way too daunting. However, if it's actually going into a game, I may as well finish it off... As it turns out, remembering the brush types I used over a year ago was tougher than doing the animation, even if it is a little wonky. It shouldn't matter though... He'll be a such a small size and moving so quickly it probably wont be notice. Also, he'll probably be on fire.

Also: Yay, did something that's not all text, for a change. May as well make a post for it.

Sweet, murderous music.

And so... my reign as Lead Artist comes to an end. It was a good run, but eventually one of the proper artists had to win.

This fortnight's challenge was to draw Mozart and Bach as vampire hunters, in a "gothic" style. I ran out of time during the week, but I didn't want to pass up such a cool topic. It's kind of more steam punk than gothic, also I was totally going to colour it in but I have other things I need to get done this weekend, so this is as finished as it will get.

Also: Yes I know that this is an implausible situation, because Bach died in 1750, 6 years before Mozart was even born... But ignoring facts like that is the N3V way! I mean vampires didn't even exist until 1813, but that's not stopping us either... Chill out nerd.
