New art blog! It's been forever I know.

It's been awhile Destructoid. I'm sorry, my comedy juices dried up. But I think I'm starting to get them back. Going and playing old NES games helps me think of things. So hopefully I'll post more art from now on. But enough of this talking crap. Here's some drawings!

So it seems as though Q*bert and Princess Peach got it on. So the Stork left them a little gift. Awww.

One eyed purple things meet at last. One of them looks tastier than the other.

Love is blooming before your eyes.... Or, should I say..... BOOMING? *snerfel snerfel* Awful...

Who loves to eat more than these two? Nobody that's who.

Someone looks yummy! Those sexy legs don't help either.

Where oh where could that finger have been?

So there ya go, not the best I've put forth, but a decent attempt. Hopefully more to follow. I have some ideas, we'll see where they take me.
If you're new to my blog, feel free to check out my past posts on the side.
For now, I will go back to eating my Burger King Hashbrowns dipped in A1 sauce, while playing Deadly Premonition. So full of win. YES!   read

Videos from the NW NARP

Last weekend I attended a NARP held my Scion of Mogo. And if you saw DeBloo's post, you know it twas awesome.

But I know you don't care about all that, you just want the videos to see if it was all that it was cracked up to be, and if you were there, to experience it again.

Here we have the first evening's toast, done with wine made by Scion himself.

What's the first thing you play at a Dtoid NARP? Gay bar. That's what. Watch as King3vbo and LostCrichton rock it out.

Then they get it right.

The second day Scion made pizzas from scratch for all of us. Personal pizzas. Epic win. You're jealous.
Here's those videos:


That noise you hear in the background is Black Dynamite being amazing and awesome.
Scion had to miss pretty much all the movie. The man was dedicated.

And if you find this boring, you suck. Because the man worked hard. You take time to recognize what he did!

Watch in wonder as Grim makes a pizza!!

And that's how you grill a pizza.

You're not ready for these last two videos. I'm telling you this right now. You think you're ready? You think you can handle it? You can't. Good luck!


See told you that you aren't ready for that flavor!

BAM! (I like how confused they both look in the preview frame of this video, like there's dog crap sitting on the floor)

Hope you enjoyed. I know I did.

Thanks again for a great weekend Scion.
Thanks to everyone for being awesome.
I'm sorry I thrust the world of Black Devil Doll upon you are. But not really.
Thanks Dtoid for having these awesome people on your site!   read

Know what I get to do?

Attend PAX for the first time with all you lovely Dtoid type people!
I'm so ready to be overwhelmed. Not only by the amount of stuff to see and do, but mostly by how awesome my fellow toid people are going to redoubtably be!

I know Mikey will probably be busy as eff with requests, so if you can't get the best, why not settle for....... Whatever I am?...
I'll be taking requests for art from now until PAX is over, so the more detailed it is, the sooner you probably wanna ask for it. Oh, and since I'm not putting it on Destructoid, I don't feel the need to make it SFW, so make it as NSFW as you want.

To help with costs I'll also have all the art you've seen in this blog with me, I'll be selling it to whoever grabs it up first. Don't worry, I'll keep it cheap, I just gotta eat and drink. So call dibs if you want it.

See you all there, I'll be the guy with the Gentleman dinosaur shirt doing the Mario impression.   read

Why I love Destructoid

I don't need any other video game site. Since I found Destructoid all other sites are dead to me.

Destructoid got me back into art.

Destructoid keeps me deep in the sarcasm I crave.

Destructoid shared the Portland Dtoid group with me, I shall never be the same.

Destructoid gives me my fill of pure hate, and at the same time, lots of sweaty man love on it's podcasts.

No matter how messed up a post I make is , or how disturbing my art is, I know there will be someone on this site that will nod approvingly.

Thank you Destructoid, I'm hot for your body.

Work time doodles return! (Part 3 of Tingle's murder mystery included)

Alright all, while sitting around this weekend, hoping someone would enter the fnf room so that I could shoot them, I drew some... I had a lot of time... No one is playing COD4 anymore apparently.
So here's some new art, with the next part in the Tingle Murder Mystery.

To go with my Spy drawing , I decided to try another TF2 character that's not my normal style, the Heavy was the one that spilled out of my head.

Luigi's totally growing big right now.

Carrying around a bird all day isn't as fun as you'd think.

And now, the next part of the Tingle Saga:
part 1 part 2

Professor Layton talks to Tingle's fellow whores, and finds out that Tingle was one of the higher priced skanks. He was willing to do that "freaky stuff". He kept all his customers under wraps though.
(sorry for the shoddy quality of my pens, higher quality here.)

Hopefully my brain is working again and hope you all enjoyed.
Also, this is the last week for FNF, GO PLAY FOR CRAPS SAKE, if nothing else, I'd like more people to play COD4 on 360, tourny or not.

Humor in Videogames (With Splosion man video)

So I was playing through Splosion Man, and I got to thinking about humor in videogames, and why it seems as though funny games are good, and games that try to be funny fail and aren't. Most often suck.

Lets use a recent game and an old game for examples.

Recent funny game: Splosion man.

I've played through the single player and the multiplayer. I enjoyed every moment of it and found it constantly funny, even when I had already seen what was happening.
All of Splosion man's animations, his sounds, the joy he's having from sploding, they all have a distinct humor to them that not many games can pull off.
Splosion Man is funny and it seems effortless that it is. Which is a key to humor. Don't let people know you're trying to be funny, like BMX XXX.

Crappy not funny old game: BMX XXX

Get it?! Pimps and humping pink poodles are funny!
Lord this game is horrible, but I was suckered in with the promise of boobies... The boobies were not worth the price of my soul. The writing was stupid, crass, unfunny, not creative in the slightest. How can you try so hard for humor and not even amuse an at the time teenage boy that just wants boobs?

Granted these games are in different leagues, but I just wanted to use them as examples. I can't think of a bad game that uses humor in a good way, and I can't really think of good games that try to be funny that fail.

And I've been trying to figure out why that is.
Could it be that companies that make good games have more creative people, and those people are naturally funnier?

So I wanted to bring this subject to you all, and maybe see if there is are funny crappy games out there (intentionally funny, I know Two Worlds is funny for all the wrong reasons), or a great game that fails at humor. Why do you think Tim Schafer's games are always fun to play as well as funny as balls. Why not funny and kinda meh to play, is it his oversite? Or other talented people just get sucked in towards him?

Also, I wanted an excuse to post this Video, if you haven't beat Splosion Man yet, just pass it by, but if you have and haven't seen this... Enjoy...

A long overdue post (with art and setup 3.0)

Egad it's been awhile since I posted a blog. I'll be honest, I burnt myself out, I took on way too much art in a short time and overloaded. It was quite awhile before I even wanted to hold a pencil again. But I think I'm back, and I'll try and update with art at least semi regularly.

Also things got a bit topsy turvy, my schedule switched to mornings, so my body was totally out of wack there for awhile... I was... Quite grumpy.
But all is right with the world now, and I'll try and get the story I was going to draw back on track, as well as other fan art, now that my brain is working again that is.

As I stated in my last blog, I was going to try and get a get story going, with the murder of Tingle, and the mystery of who done it. Who ever will solve it? Professor Layton that's who. So here's the next image in that saga... Sorry there's only one.

Link explains to the Professor that even though it was his sword in Tingle's back, it couldn't have been him. He pawned his sword so he could get his debilitating fairy addiction fix.
(large version here)

I think I'll take it in a new direction. We'll make this kind of like choose your own adventure...
If you'd like to see the Professor interview the pawn shop owner let me know.
If you'd like to see the Professor talk to Tingle's fellow street walkers, say so.
The most votes will be the next drawing!

Also. I updated my room a bit, so it's more nerdy then ever!

My whole new shelf, thanks Ikea! I'll hopefully never have to visit you again.

I'll probably post a better blog at some point showing it and my collection off once I feel like my game room is as good as it's gonna get, but right now, I'm happy with this.

Also, Funktastic, I haven't forgotten about you, I'll be sending your stuff shortly, sorry it's taken so long, I'll be sure and throw some extra stuff in there for you.

Finally, thanks for looking, hope I'll be as stable as I was a while ago!
Later all.   read

Well isn't this a nice change? (Thanks Togail!)

So this is a nice little announcement for me, I'm going to be trying something different for a little bit. You'll still get to see the same messed up disturbing imagery you've come to expect from me, but it's going to be slightly more controlled.

I'll be trying a story format, where I try and tell a bit of a tale in one image chunks. I wanted to start it with a bang, and what better way then getting another Dtoid artist involved? So here's the first image with colors by Togail

large here
Professor Layton and the Bi-Curious Village

(thanks to Togail for coming up with the title)

Each post the Professor will be trying to unravel the mystery of who killed the local prostitute Tingle in the land of Video games... Oh the characters he'll meet!
(and no, it's not as obvious as you think it is)

And there will more then likely be more help from Togail, so look forward to that to!

Hope you all enjoyed, I'll try and make this an enjoyable ride.

Big thanks again Togail!

Work Doodles 4/27/09(Disturbing post)

A new batch of new drawings for you all... And possibly the most horribly, awesomely, offensive thing ever.
I'll be honest too, none of these were drawn at work, which let me focus on them more... But work doodles is just the name of the blog, now and probably forever...

And here we go!
(hopefully scanned versions to come later today)

Just a quick character drawing of Bernard from DoTT, hopefully more to come.

Bob-omb loves Bombchu.
Very, very much.
(and that's bombchu's tail btw)

I always figured it was Cloud under that Helmet...

A Belmont takes a "break" to put those damn Medusa heads to good use.

Alright... You may have to advert your eyes... Don't say I didn't warn you... Podtoid fan art o' horribleness.

I hope you listen to podtoid... Or else this image is just a metric butt ton of confusing... And... I'm sorry...
If you're brave enough... Large version here.

Phallus Knife Fight drew a similar image, so I wasn't going to, but I told him this and he DEMANDED that I draw it. So here it is... I think I may have out disturbed even him...

At first it was just going to be them standing there looking awkward... But every time I thought of it, something got more and more twisted in my head... wtf is wrong with me? Perhaps I need some shock therapy. Heavens knows I need something.

So there's the first new batch, also I have a plan I'm brewing, I won't give anything away, but it's going to be AWESOME if I can pull it off.. Hopefully I'll be able to let you all know what it is either tomorrow or the next day. But don't worry, it's nothing lame like I got an art job or anything, this idea is all for you people.

Hope you enjoyed.
And again... Sorry.

Latest batch of colored art

Alright, here's my last batch of colored art for a bit. Going to go back to drawing the black and white stuff for a bit. Plus it's less time consuming, and as of right now, time is not my friend. But anyhoo, without further adieu, here's today's artwork.

Waluigi, a face you can trust. Always take candy from strangers.

Lovely day for a bike ride what. I shall put on my best hat and be off.

Super Mario Brothers Xtreme Beach Volleyball!
The sunscreen on Mario's nose looks more like spooge..... Or maybe it's not sunscreen at all... maybe...
Large version here

Alright all, there's today's batch, hope you enjoyed my delving into the world of colored art. There will be more down the road, but for now, it's back to original drawings.


(Oh, and RonBurgandy2010, if you missed being informed in my last post, I did color the Molasses, it was two posts ago... HERE )

Thanks for looking, Later all   read

A couple more colored drawings

After I finish the last few coloring jobs I have in my "to do" folder, I'll be going back to some original line art. Hopefully I've stock piled enough random ideas to get a good deal of humor out of my head, we'll see!
Anyhow, here's today's batch, once again, sadly, just two, but it's been a busy week.

Good thing barrels are mario's strong point.

Dr. Mario does good work.
Not even within a minute of uploading this to flickr, it had 6 views... The intertubes apparently like bewbs..

Well there we go, I'll try and bang out the last few by tomorrow, of course I saved one of the hardest for last... Oh well... I'm up for the challenge!
See you all when I finish up.
Thanks for looking!

A quick bit o' coloring

Well not really that quick... Both these took a lot longer then I thought they were going to, several hours really... So sadly, only two images today, but hopefully they are purdy to look at.
So here they are!

There ya go RonBurgandy2010, it's all colored and such.. And it took forever... If you want the larger size, it's here
For those who don't know what this is... It's a quote my by Coach Oleander in Psychonauts. "You're like molasses going uphill in January...with crutches."

Ever wonder why Toad was always in the castle instead of the Princess? Well... I'm pretty sure Bowser was filling the question blocks with Mushrooms.
This one took a lot longer then planned as well.
(large version here)

And now a question for you all.
When I start up with new drawings, would you rather see them right away in black and white, and then maybe colored later? Or wait a little while, get them later and have them colored the first time you see them? Let me know your thoughts.

And finally, a big thanks to Destructoid and Hamza for the Art Attack Friday feature, I'm truly flattered. Thank you all for looking and supporting me as well.
I'll try and have more then just two next time!
