For the curious, here are the drawing details:
- 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.
- Symmetra is dressed as a Maranao princess, dancing the singkil. She is also materializing a “sarimanok” or Bird of Happiness from myths (aka, “lucky chicken” lol).
So I learned some time ago that Comiccon Asia 2018 was happening… AND they’re having FOUR Overwatch Voice Actors showing up as guests. ❤ ❤ ❤
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
