A few new bits of art and a random .gif

Some mixed bits and bobs from my last selection of stuff.  I’m getting over having to say goodbye to Andrew again after a nice two-week holiday and I’m in the middle of a big paid commission as well as other things, so may be a bit slow and rubbish with other art for a bit. Behh.

Vaas VS Rarity

Both Vaas from Far Cry 3 and Rarity from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic have big butts, which are very prominent in our AU.  So on holiday, they engaged in a little DOA Xtreme-style booty pushing in the pool.  Rarity won.


Because ‘Bella is hot and gorgeous, this is her in her holiday bikini that I designed based on her original dress.

Miguel & Chris: “Let’s Hear It For The Boy”

Very much from our AU, it’s Chris and Miguel, originally The Pain and The Fear from Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, now people in their own right.  They love each other, and I was solidly listening to “Let’s hear it for the boy” by Deniece Williams while drawing it, so the lyrics are lurking in the background.  It makes me think about my Andrew in the same way it makes Miguel think of Chris, so here we go.

Far Cry 3: Vaas Gif

And just a quickie random .gif of dear Vaas from Far Cry 3 that I put together to make myself laugh.  He makes me think about my fiance (not because he’s mad) so his silly face makes me laugh.  Can’t get over how much this screenshot makes me lol X3


Far Cry 3 Box Art…why so grumpy?

What happened?  Why, whyyy?

A little random thing but a thing that’s been bugging me, about the supposed cover art for Far Cry 3 that I parodied with my water pistol picture.  I meant to post this like two weeks ago but I was lazy :p

The original piece of art, a rougher looking painting with a fully red Far Cry 3 logo, that my fiance originally sent me to say ‘hey lookie it’s Vaas yay’, was sitting merrily in my picture folder.  I referenced it directly for my water pistol doodle, and at least in my original painting (not my second version where he looks a bit shocked), I kept the same vaguely sinister, Vaas-y smile on his face.  Vaas smiles, we’re all a bit creeped out but at least he’s happy.

Then, sometime between that day and right now, when I pop onto Amazon to look at the preorders, I find THIS piece of art as the working cover.  It’s tuned up, everything’s smoother and sharper (Vaas looks a bit less like he’s battling a rabid case of adult acne), but now he’s not smiling. 😦 What’sa goin’ on?

So now he looks better rendered, but he’s all frowny and looks like someone really peed him off.  Why so serious, buddy?  Did Ubisoft take your smile away?

All I’m saying is that I prefer him smiling, as I prefer most characters smiling (except the ones that make it look wrong or freaky, like Terak or Athani).  Vaas is too much like Miguel to look all frowny.  And that’s all I’ll say – so long as we don’t see a box preview for “super duper special edition with real working Brody action figure and pile of dirty sand” and find that he’s been made cross-eyed and looking like he’s sucked a bad lemon.
