Tim Rogers, founder and editor-in-chief of actionbutton.net and sometimes Kotaku columnist, and Kris Graft, EIC of Gamasutra, getting their bad bromance on during GDC. Number two in my series of exercises with drawing people in weird poses. ^^p

I got to hang out with Tim at GDC for a little while. He's pretty freakin' awesome, and I highly recommend his writing to anybody. (Here, go read some! Articles like this just spill out of his face, like, all the time.) I didn't get to meet Kris, but that would have also been awesome. Apparently this kind of thing happens quite when they're hanging out together.

Pencil, touched up in GIMP to balance the line contrasts and compensate for the still-crappy lighting (I don't have a working scanner at home). Took about 45 minutes to an hour total, subtracting out distraction times.

Freakin' proud of this, even though his head is too small. ^^; This is my boyfriend Max, from a camping trip we went on like a year before we started dating. Ain't he cute?

Pencil; lightly touched up in GIMP to make it look less like I photographed my sketchbook with my iPhone. I picked at it for about 30 min total.

After, what, a year? of not playing Sidley, he burst from his box in my head with such force that I actually felt motivated to finally update his outfit.

The Mandarin collar looks much better when he's sitting up, trust me... >.>

A prototype image of a semi-adopted pirate character I'm playing, first mate Kantos Volta. He's a shrewd businessman with a weakness for lavish parties and salty wenches, and he has some lightning magic abilities.

The photo editing job by itself I'm pretty satisfied with, but as far as actual likeness to the character, I stopped being excited about it about halfway through. Not unexcited enough to not finish it, though; but if anyone wants to adopt this image for their own character, I wouldn't be sad about giving it out.

I'm told the shadow over his eyes is creepy; unto thee I say: Blame the hat.

An update of the pic of Sidley I uploaded some time ago. I refined the aging effects a little, and according to some friends I showed this to, I seem to have added about 10 years to his appearance, bringing the pic much closer to his actual age.

How old does he look to you? (No fair going back to look at the old image first!)
