So it was brought up in the generic Art thread over in the Off Topic area that perhaps we should have a dedicated fan art thread.

 

I've put this in the spoiler section just so that way we're free to post art of characters and plot points that some may find spoiler-y.

 

Hopefully having a dedicated thread will also inspire people to work on / share some sweet fan art.

 

...So get busy posting! Or arting.

 

*Slinks off to work on something to post.*

I'd go make something to post, but then I'd have to invent a fictional limbless child to attribute it to. Art is sadly Not My Thing. Looking forward to seeing what more talented people come up with!

I never said it had to be good fan art. ;) Though I get that we don't all art as a hobby. We should make a fan fic thread, too. *ponders*

 

Speaking of not good fan art... :P

 

I've been working on doodles of Etta and Magnus. But I'm SO RUSTY because I don't art regularly anymore and I'm trying to force myself to get the hang of my Note tablet and it's just... it's kind of a butt. I don't know how many people do digital art, but... I can ink and color and work on top of a scanned in sketch, but trying to reteach myself to draw with a tablet is... well, it's basically learning how to do various things all over again. Slowly slowly getting the hang of it.

 

Here's what I'm working on currently. Has some issues. Not sure if I'll clean it up / color it or not.

That captures that 50s style quite brilliantly. ;)

 

The profile views may be easy on the artistic requirements, but the hands are extremely difficult to get right even in that view. If you clean up, get your guy to do some ref shots together. B)

 

 

I don't usually repost, but today... I do. :mellow:

I'm like 95% sure that's what the internet is for. :P

I definitely just didn't fully finish inking the hands. Probably because they were added as an afterthought. Whoops.

Thanks though. :) we'll see if I feel like fixing it when I've had some more sleep.

...That awkward moment when you remember the actual artists are lurking around...  :blush:

 

Thank you. Now I'm going to have to clean this up and color it.

I like the way the straws cross and they are holding hands. In the 50s the hand holding would have been below the table - but then it wouldn't be part of the picture. Also Cherry Cokes were very popular then.

An additional comment and a question.

 

Coca-Cola did not introduce Cherry-Coke until several decades later. In the 50s the soda-jerk would add cherry syrup to the bottom of the glass before filling the remainder with Coke.

 

Were the two heart shaped negative spaces between the arms and the chin intentional?

Thank you! :)

Yeah, the motif made me think soda/malt shop, so I went with it. I didn't have a specific drink in mind.

Composition was intentional-ish? I didn't set out with that in mind, but I noticed it once I started playing with poses.

...I'm really going to have to clean this up/fix it tomorrow. :wacko:

I mean, when I hear fanart I sort of expect bastardizations of this kind of scene...

... but I was pleasantly surprised!

...I actually kind of want to make a thread where we can make our own Dreamfall inspired pickup lines based on that image, but we haven't gone there with our fanart yet. 

 

(If I ever finish/redo/repost Bondage Seduction Zoe, we can reassess.)

Just thinking: couldn't this be "pinned"? As i surfed the forum I Always looed for such a thread, and obviously missed it, having subscribed (after a veeeery long time of "lurking") I would love to see what comes out of this, and maybe sketching something by pen & paper without having it going too serious, I actually tried a lot on these characters, but was never really satisfied with what came out, maybe one day I can come up with something shareable :)

It could be, sure. I mean, the other "pinned" threads here are mostly like...official "read before posting" type stuff, but like. I could theoretically pin this. 

 

On the one hand, I'm not sure if it should be a pin. On the other hand, since the forum doesn't let people search for three letter words, I can see the appeal. 

 

Let me confer with the other Mods.

Btw, I think people are able to "subscribe" to threads, and then they can choose to be notified of new posts etc.

 

I'm not completely sure though, as I've never explored that myself. But that could also be an option if you want to keep track of new posts in one thread :)

I see, I just thought so as I think that having it somewhat evidenced, and being an ongoing thread not necessairly storydriven could give everyone passing through theforum a chance to see what's on it, or just for people who wouldn't exactly look for this but certainly like it as it passes between the upper titles...

 

Just a thought and a proposal, nothing more, of course it needs a little more images than now... so why don't just give it a chance and if it goes well one can try to take it seriously up like the thread about the album in non-spoilerish section of Dreamfall :)
