Anyway, being a terible player AND being broke af, someone eventually told me that I could just make my own tokens since they were just 1/1 things anyway. I found out that you could even use coins or rocks as tokens so… yay? xDDD
I scrounged up some spare card sleeves, post-its, and a marker, and drew some potato-looking ghosts and bats. They were pretty cute, though. 😀
Anyway, fast forward to 2018, and I’ve accepted that I’m not an MtG-playing kind of person, but I’m still drawing potato-looking everythings, haha.
A friend of mine who is a REALLY into Magic: the Gathering, then asked me to make a custom Drake token for him recently, aaaaand this was the result lol.
I wasn’t sure which border he’d like so I made both. I am quite fond of this derpdrake now. ❤
Sombra is wearing a Baro’t Saya with a Panuelo and Tapis, and is holding typical streetfood/snacks-on-sticks haha. It’s called “kwek-kwek” (orange-battered and deep fried hardboiled quail eggs) and “bananacue” (fried plantains with caramelized sugar).
Zen is wearing a “katipunero”outfit, and sipping juice out of a fresh, opened coconut (if omnics could drink??).
Pharah is in a not-the-usual-red Ifugao outfit, and is holding sunflowers and wearing a traditional feathered headress.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAVE I MENTIONED HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS GAME AND JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IN/AROUND/ABOUT IT???
I bought tickets for autographs and photo ops with Sym’s and Sombra’s VAs despite us still kind of recovering from a massive vet bill recently (which is another long story), and my husband didn’t divorce me, so that’s good haha. I really hoped to get tickets to see everyone because who knows when they’ll be able to come back to this country — or if they’d want to — but two is the best we could do. Was also hoping to get a ticket for Zen’s VA for the husband, but it was a no go. 😦 Thankfully, hubby is cool with it, but still… CURSE MY THIN WALLET. T__T;;
Anyway…. Soooooooo…. I bought passes for their March 25 appearance, and I suddenly got it into my head last night (at 1am saturday March 24… whyyyyyyyy…) to make a small tribute artwork for said OW VAs. And this is the result. Herp.
I don’t think I have EVER worked so fast in my life. I was even able to rush to the print shop to have it printed on A4 paper, so yay!
I’m looking forward to giving copies to Sym and Sombra… but yeah. I still don’t know how I’m supposed to hand it over to Pharah and Zen. Hopefully there’s a designated gift table, or maybe I can beg a staff member to hand it to them. I’m crossing my fingers. >__<;;;
Anyway, I copied default poses and drew Zen, Sombra, Pharah (sorry I know I can’t draw hands or feet ;w; ) in some stylized regional traditional costumes. I know I took some liberties in there, and I also know I may have gotten some of pharah’s tattoo symbolisms wrong herp pls don’t lynch me, history enthusiasts… T__T;;
In the meantime, we plan to line up early tomorrow to get our entry badges so maybe I should actually get some sleep haha
Okay so… YES. Still struggling to get used to this whole drawing-on-an-iPad thing.
I’m slowly getting accustomed to the grip of the stylus, as well as the weight and feel of the iPad itself. Still a little clunky but yeah… maybe I’m making progress haha
Anyway it’s a long weekend right now, and almost everyone’s on vacation (of course I still have work… because #workfromhomeproblems and all that…)
I figured Overwatch’s villain group should have a day off, too. So here’s Widowmaker, Sombra, and Daddy Reaper having a beach day before going back to base to tackle that pesky problem that is Overwatch haha. xDD
Oh, I DID change one thing, though… I decided that I’m too dumb to use Procreate Procreate is kind of a little heavy to use, so a friend recommended I switch to MediBang Paint. It does feel a lot more like a combination of Photoshop and PaintTool SAI to me, both of which I’m familar with, so it actually felt a little nicer to use. Also they have a lovely library of halftones, backgrounds, and visual references to use so that’s fantastic. ❤
As I mentioned in my previous post, I’ve been setting about trying to get used to working with an iPad, a new stylus, and Apple illustration apps (in this case, Procreate).
How’s my progress so far…?
Ahahahah it’s hard. oTL
I’m not used to an iPad’s interface as I’m a devout PC/Android user, and the Pencil stylus takes some getting used to, as the way it’s shaped is a little strange to grip, in my opinion. I’m still learning how to deal with the edges.
