KP: Fire Hive

More KP art...

... a little late, but it's for "Fire Hive", the first Knife Party song I listened to and loved.

Process Log 17: Druid's Market

I needed an environment painting for my 2D portfolio, so I took a sketch I did back in Game Design Club at Ringling during one of the first "World Jams", where we took several words from an index card pile and created a world from them.
The words that made up this environment were "Druid", "Medieval", and "Barter Economy".

I don't normally paint just environments - and it's an area that I need to improve - so this was a huge challenge for me. I'm semi-satisfied with how this painting turned out. Regardless, this is the first of many practice environment paintings to come. I also received valuable crit and advice from Kez.

Here's the process I went through in completing this piece:

Sketchstuff Updated

A new page has been added to Sketchstuff. It shows a map of an RPG I had in mind for a couple years in high school called Ayanseila. It was a huge game idea that never saw the light of day and probably never will.

Again, for visiting my site here's some more derpy sketches, this time of my four favorite plushies: Gary the Starcraft II Overlord, Charmander the... Charmander, Gidi the GDCat (that I bought at my first  GDC event, hence the name), and Bunny Fisher the Sam Fisher Raving Rabbid. These are the kinds of things they do together. :'D

Knife Party-Inspired Plushie

If you remember Snare, KP's pet centipede, I made him into a plushie. :D

The thing he's munching on is a pillow I made from Knife Party's logo.
Snare is about 4 feet long, made with black and white ultra cuddle fabric and dark gray felt. I tweaked his design a little bit: he doesn't have a knife going through his head and he doesn't have teeth. I left out those details because he kinda looked cute without them... plus a cousin of mine mentioned that he looked like a "Pandapede", which I thought was pretty adorable.

Here's a turnaround for him:

Snare is a nasty little thing that doesn't really play along with others unless KP's around (which he's not). He likes to harass creatures that are smaller than him, nipping at their heads with his two fangs. Gary, the Starcraft II Overlord plushie I made, is the only one who can suppress him:

Mainly because Gary's just fat and sits on Snare's head. :'D
I hate bugs, especially centipedes, so I don't know why I'm accumulating all these insect-inspired stuffed animals. 0_o

Sketchstuff Page Added

I added another page for some of my sketchbook work. It'll have anything from observational work to whatever random passing ping of inspiration I have, for those who are interested in what ideas go on in my head. 0_o

This isn't in Sketchstuff, but just for visiting my site, here's a page of derpy Pokemon. Enjoy! :D
