Firework by YelZamor Firework by YelZamor
:bulletblue: Greetings, peeps!

:bulletblue: *falls down dead* Aw, man. This took a lot of work! Hopefully, it was worth it. What started as a nonchalant PShop doodle of Scout, exploded (*haw*) into a full-blown fanart.

:bulletblue: Decided to really push myself this time, adding as much detail as I was able to… without losing my sanity. Of course, it isn’t perfect and some areas could do with improving, but I’d been fiddling with it for days and it just needed to be done.

:bulletblue: This image is unique in the fact that it was created entirely digitally, without pencils first. It turned out surprisingly well! There are definitely advantages to working the lines digitally which I like, there are also downsides in not having as much freedom in the positioning of the canvas.

:bulletblue: It was a challenge, but it was majorly fun to do. Hopefully you guys like this too.

The sky was inspired by RED Team Wallpaper by Sorrel-san.

Wood texture used in the piece is to be found here: [link] .

Enjoy,

The way TF2 was intended, but then, it took CoD players to the servers... C!

Okay, so I'm going through all the older stuffs in my inbox (you may have noticed the plethora of comments from me already.) So BRACE FOR IMPACT!

All of this awesome makes me want to do a TF2 fanpiccy of my own.
Like a group thing. I already did one for Pyro (my best class), but an action pic featuring all the classes like this would be cool.

Also.
Dat Heavy smile. XD

You are awesome!
I freakin' love comments. Thank you!

Please do draw your own fanpic, you're great at crowd scenes... I never have the patience. X3

Speaking of classes... did I add you on steam? Been way too busy to install TF2 and have to make do with a bit of LIMBO, every now and again. :)

Yep. You're on my Steam Friends list.
I haven't been on recently, though.
When you get TF2 installed, we should play sometime.
I don't have a mic, though, so any conversation we have would be a little one sided.

I have a mic, but it doesn't quite work and speaking to people that way is awkward. X3

I made profit on prints and badges - I only did a couple of commissions (thanks :D) but I'd much rather make money on prints than commissions because I get very very stressed doing on the spot artwork. It was totally worth it, and if you get a table with 3 passes it works out cheaper for all involved than getting a weekend ticket each :>

Tempted to try out Bristol next year but I don't know how just fanart junk would be received. :\

Schweet!
I'm thinking prints and badges are the way to go, just wondering what to do. Not very keen to do any copyrighter characters, just in case I get done, but that is what people are more likely to get. X3
I'd only get nervous if there are impatient kids waiting for a drawing, they're annoying. X3 The grown ups actually enjoy watching you draw.

Don't worry about Bristol, there were all sorts there. There were people with little comic pig strip books, people selling chibi canvasses of comic characters. Anything really. If you split the costs with a buddy, it should be a good venture.
They'll be moving the event into the "Shed" opposite the station next year, so that will bring both events together and there will be more space too. :D

Heh, every single convention goer I know sells fanart prints/sketches. I used to think it was a bit odd but it's so grey area (parody, whatever), honestly there were SO few tables selling original content at Expo. Everyone online who attends conventions (apart from furry conventions :P) seems to sell either their own comic content, or fanart stuff, so.

I SO can't draw when people are watching! I dunno why, I get so entirely on edge, haha. Even if someone's in here while I try and do something I get ansty. I'll never get into the livestream genre, haha.

The old convention used to be in that shed back when you could pay on the day to get in. I loved it.

YelZamor Featured By Owner May 18, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Yeah, because fanart is lovely and so-called official art will never live up to the variety that is offered by the unauthorised artist. X)

I know what you mean about being on edge. You feel like you need to hurry up and can't take your time. I always fiddle around with my roughs for ages till I get them good enough for blue-line.
If anything, you can suggest to peeps to come back later... but I'd take the monies first, as as few artist friends have done artwork for free when no one returned to claim it. Booh.

I've never seen the shed, so hopefully it will be really cool next year. :D You definitely should join the Ramada bar party afterwards; comics people always hang out there in the evenings. :D I'm not a drinker, so bow out fairly early on. X)

Lawl, I don't know. :3 I'm definitely sitting in and sketching at our Orang Utan Comics table.
I received two commissions at Bristol, not many but better than nothing. But one was from a friend.
How in-demand are you at London Expo? I'd imagine you get fairly good traffic. :3

Also, thank you. :D

Awesome work! Each character has different poses. the movement is stressed in each pose, and I love it! XD It totally makes the scene more excited and jam packed. I love the bright/light colours, this is what really caught my attention : D I love bright and bold pictures, and this is definitely one of them!

And I gotta say, demoman did make me laugh :rofl:

Thanks for mentioning the poses, I'd been struggling with getting them right for quite a while, so your noticing of them is a good sign. :D
Yeah, I struggle with making my art look mature, it always has to have something goofy happening in it. XD
:D Tah for enjoying it. ^^
