Moar Cowbell! (I mean art....)

Postby Adean » Tue Jul 08, 2008 12:04 am

And now I am finally posting up some more art. Keep in mind I didn't spend nearly as much time and effort on these as I did Two-Lip Tower. I don't really want critique as much as I want comments on whether or not I should take the time to complete these.

Sooooo.......

Here is my idea for the Mechanic stat card. Keep in mind that this is very "unofficial", and does not impose on Evil Wayne's rights to the "official" stat card artwork claim thingie.... If enough people like it I'll finish it so you guys can turn it into an (unofficial) stat card. If this image is to complicated for a stat card I'll make some new thumbnails for some other ideas that I had.

Only two pictures, sorry kids. Here's an idea that I had a while back for a Demotivational Poster. The original pic shows the minifig's face, but it got cropped when I made the poster. I think it's almost better this way.... Anyways, I'll finish this of enough people want me to. I don't like doing art for myself very much.

And that's it. Hope you like! :D

Oh right, BTW, all images are Copyright to Stephen Nickel, 2008. Just don't post these anywhere else please. Thanks. I forgot to watermark them and I'm to lazy right now to go change it. But hey, no stupid watermarks in the way right?! Just respect the art people. XP

Ha! I'd love it if some newcomer upstart got the jump on Wayne, two years after he started. (Also the scene you're laying out is frankly cooler than his.) It won't fit very well into the stat card image shape right now though, you'd have to tighten it up a lot.

Also the sandwich and lunchpail could be switched to genuine lego elements - maybe the chicken leg and the suitcase?

Those are awesome. I especially like the first. No, the second. OK, I can't make up my mind, but I like one of them better.

Unfortunately, that thread name calls for a topic change. More cowbell; I mean you can hardly hear it if you aren't listening for it carefully. Do you hear that Blue Oyster Cult? MORE COWBELL! Don't fear the reaper.

WOOT! Topic change! Bring it!

Honestly, I've given up trying to stop the silly topic changes. If nobody comments on the art, then I'll just assume that you all would have written exactly what I want to read. Either way I get what I want. LoL

In response to Mike, I did take some artistic liberties with this pic. I honestly did consider the chicken and briefcase, but I thought that the sandwich seemed right somehow. I think that I could replace the lunch box with a cylinder stud thing with a handle. Then it would look like one of those lunch cylinders that miners use.

It might look too much like a cowbell then...

I dunno, i kindof like making everyone suffer for Wayne's lack of effort. but he's starting to look like a sadist now...

real nice regardless. If i were to make a suggestion, it'd be for less crap to be laying around the mechanic, and instead make the wall he's hiding behind a bit more interesting than two 2x4s stacked up on eachother.

Hey, I love the artwork, man. But, imo the mechanic should actually be in the process of building something, not just eating a sandwich. Still, it's great to see that some Mechanik artwork is finally being made. I salute ya!

Impossible. I can't imagine that I will ever think of a rank more evocative and satisfying than Smuggle Buddy.

Yeah I know, I say "I lol'd" a lot now. I think I used to just use "haha" as reply to something humorous, but that grew redundant. I would've got bored of "I lol'd" eventually, but you just pushed the process along.

Those are awesome drawings, Adean. I think I like your motivational poster the best, and cutting off the head of the minifig, in my opinion, is better than it being there.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

I was actually trying to create a sense of humor similar to the Horse stat card. The horse is all happy and dapper, while the skeletal rider looks less than happy. The horse couldn't care less though. Well, when I picture a construction worker, I see him eating a boxed lunch that his wife made for him. Cuz it's silly. Anyways, when I thought of this card I had many ideas, such as him hitting himself with a hammer or dismembering one of his hands with a saw. But when I started drawing it came out like this, and it seemed appropriate. Anyways, since this picture is rather busy, I'll probably finish it cuz I like it. But I'll probably make a simpler picture of a mechanik hurting himself somehow for the card. Humorous, but at least he looks busy.

EDIT: Oh yeah, thanks for all the support everybody!

Both pictures are very well drawn and very funny. The construction worker one is definitely my favorite, though. I can't imagine Wayne coming up with anything funnier.
