Alright, since I'm a bit overdue on updates, as there is literally nothing to talk about until the no-CD patch gets made, I've decided to do something of an art showcase. DeviantArt is chock full of literal crap in terms of quality RKS images, so until someone amazing shows up and starts pumping good pictures into that place, I'd steer clear of it. Instead, we go over to pixiv, where the quality to crap ratio is a lot higher. Here are some of the spotlights in no particular order. Click the images to go to their respective profiles. IMPORTANT: All of these profiles are to be considered NWS, regardless of the content within them.
Now, I've made it pretty clear in the past that I do not like the stuff that Superjustinbros draws, and I think some of you have been a lot more vocal about it than I have. Well, I have to admit that this particular image of Freudia is one that I actually like, and it's a sign that, hopefully, he's taking some recently-given advice to heart. Be warned, though, that when you click that profile, you'll get what you're expecting to get.
This Luste was brought to you by SHUNTA-ROWE, who has a fairly cute collection of pictures. He seems to concentrate a lot on mecha musume-type characters, so you'll be seeing some girls with robotic features in his archive. You'll also get to see Immaterial and Missing Power sprite edits of Marisa and Alice in one-piece swimsuits. Just throwing that out there.
Here's a really nice picture of Spiritia by Ippanjin The Bloodedge. I really like this style, and if you check out his profile, you'll be greeted with a lot more, including similar images of Freudia and Grolla. If that wasn't enough, he has a nice variety of images that are sure to satiate the Touhou fans out there. Surprisingly, however, there is almost no Blazblue art. There happens to be one seemingly no-effort Arakune, but that's it. I expected a bit more, but you can't always get what you want!
While the Caramelldansen trend sometimes irritates me, especially since the history behind the .gif and the original flash videos have been pretty much ignored, I do have a soft spot in my art for these cute Popotan knock-offs. Zipang's Schwer image is no exception. He was even kind enough to toss an animated version on his website. There sure are a lot of links in this description! Just be sure to click them.
Of course, no Schwer and Schwer Alike showcase is complete with something from our artist affiliate, Kiora. This image happens to be one of my favorites of his, a picture of Iris that depicts her exactly as she appears to be: an innocent and cute girl who would never hurt a fly. Oh, how wrong we are. As usual, a link to Kiora's blog, which is updated fairly regularly with new art, can be found on the right sidebar.
I'm not sure what exactly is up with Hissatsu-kun's obsession with people slurping ramen, but it's a common theme in some of the Dolis Warmind creator's artwork. It's strange, but his art is pretty good, so I can't complain. Plus, there's a huge image gallery, so there's bound to be something in there you like. Although, I'm not a big fan of his Noel Vermillion...
Glacies appears to be a big RKS fan with nearly a third of his uploads being RKS-related. I do, however, love his ability to sprite-edit, something I've always wanted to do. Check out his collection if only for the Megaman-related images (such as RockUdonge X) and his RKS sprite stuff. It's stellar.
I love Masakichi's style. That's all that I can say. It's so comic-y and just super adorable, for the most part. You have to see the rest of his collection for yourself. That's all I really have to say about it.
And last but not least, SaSA blog reader Johnny Truant, the artist that brought us Sexy Grolla, has provided us once again with something great. Click the thumbnail to be treated to Sexy Freudia. Thanks a bunch for that one, and I hope you, and others, contribute more in the future!
And that's it then! Hope you enjoyed it.
That last one, well. Well, that's just fine.ReplyDelete
One word for my drawing skill: "BAD" That I couldn't contribute. 8-|ReplyDelete
Good post. I frequently hit up Pixiv whenever Danbooru fails to give me hits for those less-common subjects. Like Shoulder-a-Coffin Kuro. Since Pixiv is where 99% of danby's stuff comes from anyway.ReplyDelete
Decent all around.
I'll always be surprised when I browse all these artists' directories that no one has attempted to design a rival for Spiritia yet; you would think with the Rockman analogue being so thick, a Forte-inspired Spiritia boss would have to be inbound, or at least exist within the fan community.ReplyDelete
Mind, I personally already have such a character fully fleshed out for my personal use at a certain multi-theme roleplay ground; probably wouldn't mind working with some artists on the design more thoroughfully. But still, I'm surprised. You'd think with Forte's popularity among the Rockman fanbase, we'd already have half a dozen attempts at adapting the idea. Yet mine's the only one I know of. o.o
Also, holy crap, is that Spiritia as Kamen Rider Ryuki in that bottom picture? XD
So my art is considered crap to you, despite that I'm learning to draw...? =.=ReplyDelete
I said DA was full of it. I didn't mean exclusively.ReplyDelete
I wish the Pixiv Rosenkreuzstilette artists would create deviantART accounts. Then maybe we would have a great amount of Rosenkreuzstilette images up there too.ReplyDelete
Hm, some day I need to try to draw Grolla. Nobody draws her =(ReplyDelete
I am utterly in love with this Masakichi fellow. You were right, his style is amazing. It's so bright and cartoony, I wish he got an anime gig or something (right impossible, I know) just to see that in motion, it's so fresh. Thanks a thousand for that Letty.ReplyDelete
I want to know what the seiyuu look like. Wish there was a section on it on Schwer and Schwer alike.ReplyDelete
Letty, I think you need to look again at deviantART, because there are definitely a good amount of Rosenkreuzstilette images.ReplyDelete
