Spike Spiegel - 58 by SebastianvonBuchwald
Spike Spiegel - 58

I picked this palette myself because I felt like doing a non-video game, non-comic book character for one of these and honestly, I don't have many palettes suggestions anymore at this point. 

Outside of that, here's an update of what I've been doing. Basically, I've been very busy working on my first of two submissions for the Capcom Fighting Tribute. The first one has shipped already (so to speak) and I've started work on my second entry. I'm definitely confident about my first submission but man, there's just so much high quality art in those books so I don't know. It's worth nothing that I've tried submitting to both the Street Fighter Tribute and Mega Man Tribute books in the past with zero success. To be fair, the SF piece was so terrible it had no chance of making it. The MM piece I felt slightly better about. Here's hoping third time's the charm though. Either way, I can't post any of it until after I know whether I made it in or not but here's hoping.   

That's my update for now. Here's the palette challenge completion list in case you have some juicy suggestions: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12…

Here's FallenZephyr's palette once again: 100 Palette Challenge by FallenZephyr

And here's the compilation with all the ones I've done so far:

I was invited by the fine fellows at Teepublic to submit some designs and I did!

If I'm on your watch list you've probably seen some of these in some form already. I'll be uploading more stuff over the next couple of days and, if there's something in my gallery that you want as a t-shirt, I can gladly upload it for you.

The t-shirts are on sale for only $14 for the next couple of days so go crazy!

Mario vs. Azazel by SebastianvonBuchwald
Mario vs. Azazel
BLOG - TUMBLR - TWITTER - COMMISSIONS

I've been wanting to do this piece for a looong time. 

Let's be clear here, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth was easily my favorite game of 2014. I have put (and will continue to put) dozens of hours in it and I wanted to do something to show my love for this game art wise. Usually, when this happens, I do a Mario Versus piece (Guacamelee, Josef from Machinarium are good examples of this) but I had already done one for the original Isaac and I didn't want to repeat myself. I like my old Isaac piece (Mario vs. Isaac by SebastianvonBuchwald) but I hate that I did it when I was still such a noob at that game that I didn't know about any of the cooler items in it (I mean, I put Dead Bird in there. Dead Bird. Come on.) so I thought about updating that old piece with new items but I kinda hate revisiting old stuff. So what was the solution? Simple: Rebirth has 11 characters so I just used a character other than Isaac (even though they're all Isaac technically). I also made it a point to use one of the new characters so I picked Azazel because fuck the Lost and I only used items that are new to Rebirth (except the flies, I guess).

Picking the items was fun. I put some of my personal faves (Dark Buuuuum!) but also a couple that are just cosmetically interesting. Some cool items I had to cut either due to overlap (Tech .5) or because they changed the character too much (Abaddon, Leo, Death's Touch). I even pixelated the floor to fit the new art style. This piece also is a good example of, compared to the last one, how much better I've gotten at effects.  

The role reversal compared to the last piece was also fun as I'm always eager to show Mario with an expression other than anger.

Anyway, enough rambling. The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth is amazing and you should go get it. 

PS: I unlocked Godhead today. Woot!

Commission of two WoW characters for Crowmance. Had a ton of tun working on these and it was requested at somewhat of an interesting time as I'm currently doing a lot of fantasy designs in my sketchbook. Got a sudden bug for that stuff for some reason. That armor though, what a pain.

I've been feeling pretty productive lately so here's another piece for the day.

I kinda feel bad about this one because it uses a palette that somebody had initially suggested for a different character. But I love Mega Man X, repeat, I loooove Mega Man X, and this palette seemed really good for him when somebody else brought it up after the fact. I've saved the original pick though and I'll pick a different palette for the character myself.

To avoid such things in the future, I've created an image that crosses out those palettes that I've already used so you guys/gals don't have figure this out by yourselves. You can find it on my website here: dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/12…

And please, do keep those suggestions coming! :)

Dude, can you imagine this. Legend of Zelda Cross with Berserk. Guts and Link together.

I kinda did that with my Lantern Draft. :)
Still, I think Guts is perhaps too hardcore for Link.

I can imagine Link and Gannondorf are fighting when suddenly the eclipse occurs over Hyrule. Just imagine that.

Of course this could also occur

Came across your page, gotta say, love your art! Do you have any process videos that outline your method? I need a lot of help on inking lines, and love the way yours are. :D

Thank you for your kind comment and thanks for the watch first of all. :)
I do not, unfortunately, have a process video though I've toyed with the idea of doing one. Basically though, for inking digitally, I just do rough sketch of the pose on a layer, bring the opacity down, create a new layer on top to tighten the drawing a bit, bring the opacity down again, hide the first layer, create a new layer to tighten the drawing some more, and so on and so forth. I do this with 3-4 layers on average though if it's a more complex pose or something that I foresee will give me trouble with the final line art, I'll do another layer or two for specific parts. Once it's tight enough, I create a new layer and go slowly over the top most layer. The idea is to get all the guess work out of the way before you handle the final line art.

Hope that helps! :)

Thank you so much for taking the time to reply to me.  Self teaching in regards to digital art is harder than I thought it would be, so it's always great to get some helpful tips from the pros. :3

You should definitely do a process video though.  I know I for one would love to see how you go about your work, no only when it comes to lineart, but also coloring.  

Thank you again, best of luck!

Well, I wouldn't consider myself a pro but you're very welcome. :)
As I said, I've toyed with the idea of doing a video. I'd have to look into it though. Maybe for something simpler like one of the palette challenges.

Your work never ceases to amaze me. Hey I got an idea for a Mario Versus series. Wanna hear it?
Reply
:iconsebastianvonbuchwald:
Sure, go for it. :)
I get tons of them though and, honestly, I usually go with my own picks anyway. ;)
