Bartkira StarTwo style! Vol 5

Bartkira_5_p210_teaser

Hello everyone!★★
Today we bring you the page we did for the Bartkira project – Vol.5. (in addition to the ones we did for Vol.4! Check the post about it ►here◄ )
For those who are not familiar with the project, here’s the description on the Bartkira Roadshow youtube channel:

Bartkira is an animated parody mash-up of The Simpsons and Akira. Based on an idea by Ryan Humphrey articulated through comics, the concept was expanded with the Bartkira project, a comic collaboration of Simpsons fans, curated by James Harvey. In association with the comic, Moon Animate Make-Up producer Kaitlin Sullivan pitched the idea of an animated trailer to match and with the work of over fifty artists, produced the Bartkira animated trailer.

We had a lot of fun once again, as expected, but there was more work involved due to the different characters and rhythm of the action.
Despite the slow pace, this gave us an opportunity to turn what could be considered a “boring” page into something more into the Simpsons’ Universe, but not without being worried on how to translate “Akira” into “Simpsons”.

Squidnapping! Squid smack!

In the end we decided to bring a story within a story, hence the “squidnapping”, making this our favourite page from the ones we made. Well, besides the one with the appearance of Sideshow Bob, because… It’s Sideshow Bob.

Here are some of the stages of the page and also some character studies we did to get a better grip of each one of them.

We hope you enjoy them just as much as we enjoyed being part of this project!

Since we’re going back to submitting recent works to Deviantart (an art community online), we thought it would be a nice cross posting opportunity, since we’ve been wanting to post this fiery couple for quite a while.

Since we can’t yet share the work we’re doing at the moment, here’s an illustration detail waiting to be inked and coloured on standby mode.

It’s called the Wheel of Fortune and it’s fueled by the idea that the Wheel will keep turning no matter what.

And that you are strong enough to work with it instead of letting it drown with you.

Take care and have a great weekend!♥

The birth of a new obsession & step by step!

Standard

Howdy everyone!

Posting regularly is really not an easy feat, good thing we’re two right? Welp…
We’re forever busy handling comics and illustrations that we hope to share with you as soon as we get the a-ok from our clients and in the meanwhile we’ll try to drop by more often with our silly ramblings, doodles and whatnots.

As much as we love videogames we sadly don’t have the time to play them as much as before (howling sigh) and there’s so many hot titles coming out…one of them being FF XV.
We’re not exactly fans of the new titles of the franchise (snes die hard fans forever! Woo!) but what are two girls to do about part of the cast… well.. ahem. Do expect a bit of male fanservice here and there from now on. (Persona 5 is also on the way so… yeah… more fanservice)

 

But let’s go back to the title of this post and share with you a quick step by step example of what we do with an image.
Step 1: Sketched some characters (in this case a rather fed up Gladiolus and an overjoyed Prompto)
Step 2: Scanned our image and fixed what needed fixing in our software of choice. In this case we cleaned up some of the lines and drew some things better.
Step 2b: Dropped some basic colours on top focusing on not overwhelming the sketch (also we were taking a tea break so we didnt have the time to go overboard)
Step 3: Played with crop, contrast and brightness, slapped a texture on top and our logo fully knowing that although this sketch is done, our fawning over these handsome guys is just beginning…

And by the by, you can also check the final image solo on our instagram so give us a visit there whenever you like!

Ah… endorphin levels are up so back to work we go! See you all soon(er)!!

Zelda longings

Standard

You forgot about my hair clips but that’s ok

Zelda’s Breath of the Wild is out and we got no chance of playing it 😥
Nevertheless, we’ll lust after the character designs whenever we can. This one was made months ago when the first images of Zelda got released. Her design is so adorable and we wonder if you can keep her following you around forever and ever, like Marin did in Link’s Awakening.

At least for now we got A Link Between Worlds to keep us going and one day, someday, we’ll join the BOTW hype! *hopeful sighs issue*

All this to say we wished we could play more games but we can’t ahaha…. hah… that’s life for ya, right?
