Project Imagination: Susie the Bat

 

Batty

 

Susie is the best bat

and apparently she wears her own fur as a scarf like that’s hardcore right

She went through so many design changes whilst I was drawing I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to finish it till this evening.

All that’s left to do now is Banjo’s transformations!

EDIT: I forgot to say that if you have a scene you’d like me to draw (in the game), I can do it!

I completely forgot that I had to Post something today, and, as a result, I don’t have much to say.

 

Lugia

 

 

Though, later, I shall begin one of my favourite games again – The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Naturally I will be doing pictures for that. So I guess I’ll have something by Saturday or next week.

Have a nice day!

 

 

Project Imagination: Deer

(Due to popular vote, I shall now be doing full-body pictures)

Whoa, what do you mean I drew an anthropomorphic animal that looks good? other than those legs ew don’t look at them

I’m actually so, so proud of how this turned out. Like, wow, the colours look so good!

After I get all these done, I’ll be back to work on new characters and level design.

Hello, everyone! It would appear I have no pictures to show.

But I have a vitally important question for Project Imagination.

Rather than just drawing expressions, would you prefer if I did full-body pictures?

Some of the designs have been changed slightly (like, Porter looks more like a seagull), and by just drawing floating heads, you can’t really see that.

Project Imagination: Porter’s Expressions

Porter Expressions

Not colour coded because I couldn’t figure out what colours to use. In the last one he looks offended because I still can’t get bird anatomy.

Anyway, our seagull buddy. Surprise! He has more emotions than anger! Though they’re all close related

Yes, he has teeth. Why? Because I can do whatever I want. I can draw a elephant with five horns and six legs. I can draw birds with teeth. No one can stop me.

R.O.B

So, I’ve been replaying Super Smash Bros Brawl. It would appear I’ve fallen in love with my favourite characters again. Kirby, Yoshi, Mr Game and Watch, and some others. But R.O.B is probably my top favourite.

Why?

Because he exists in the real world, too!

R.O.B, also know as the Robotic Operating Buddy, was first made in 1985, after the Video Game Crash of 1983. He was made to give back popularity to video games, preferably the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). He was able to serve as a second controller in two games, ‘Gyromite’ and ‘Stack-up’, which I will give a quick summary of.

‘Gyromite’

‘Gyromite’ came with many things to add-on to R.O.B. It came with two claws for R.O.B, two gyros (tops), two blue and red trays where the gyros go, a spinner, and two black trays for the gyros when they weren’t in use. ‘Gyromite’ is a puzzle-adventure game in which you must collect as much dynamite as you can before time runs out, but there’s red and blue pillars block the way, which is what the gyros are used for.

‘Stack-Up’

‘Stack-Up’ came with five trays, five coloured blocks, and two claws for R.O.B to pick up the blocks. There were three different modes. ‘Direct’ had you match up your blocks with the one of the screen. In ‘Memory’,  you make a list of commands to recreate the shown blocks, and R.O.B follows the list. Finally, in ‘Bingo’, you make a stack like the one shown on the screen, and the colour didn’t matter. There were two enemies in the games: One made you lose a life, and the other made poor R.O.B mess up his orders.

Another thing that made our robotic buddy so special was he responded to light on the screen. Sometimes, this light was too bright, so Nintendo made R.O.B some cool sunglasses to wear:

Sadly, these were the only two games that R.O.B could play with. But what made R.O.B special was he didn’t need wires (other than to connect to the NES, of course)! He ran on four AA batteries.  He was 9.6 inches tall, so he didn’t take up much space. R.O.B also had a LED light to show when he could see the colours on the screen. Another nice thing is that his colour scheme was changed for outside of Japan (where he is known as the Family Computer Robot). This is because the colours of the NES were altered. EDIT: Actually, the Family Computer Robot was made for the Famicom system. A mistake on my part.

Outside of Japan R.O.B. Look, he even has his name on the bottom!

Sadly, R.O.B’s legacy soon ended, only lasted about a year. But he has made many cameos in later games, such as Mario Kart DS and Pikmin 2. All in all, I think R.O.B was a very nice move on Nintendo’s part. Now, all I need is a Robotic Operating Buddy of my own.  

Project Imagination: Brandon’s Expressions

 

Brandon Expressions

 

 

Hey, look, they’re colour coded.

The first set of expressions! Guess them correctly and you win the satisfaction of getting it right!

 

Next will be the deer I showed a while back. Wow! Only one expressions because she’s happy all the time!

 

Have a nice day!
