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.

Oh… Hey there!

What warm light is this? Is the weather warming up?
Hah, as if the reason for our silence was sweet rested hibernation, no, not at all… How did the saying go… No rest for the weary?(no, not the wicked…) Rightly so, but we are far from complaining as health is finally being recovered, the new place is very comfy and sunny and we are happily busy since the beginning of this year!

We just returned from an event, Dia do Japão (Japan’s Day) organized by the Liga de Estudos Asiáticos at Faculdade de Letras da Universidade de Lisboa (Faculty of Humanities of the University of Lisbon) We loved the day and met wonderful people, some don’t know how close they were of being hugged to death unconsciousness, stuck on our pocket and taken home♥ we want to thank everyone at the lovely organization for all the attention and care they provided us!

We didn’t get the chance to take many pictures but here’s at least one of them♥

 
We hope everyone has been treated well by 2017 up to now and if not, we hope things start getting better from here on.
Have a great week and take care!★★

And here we are at the end of our first Inktober ever and what a wonderful ending, to end it with Halloween!

We would like to give a huge THANK YOU to all of you that have been coming to our blog. We are humbled by seeing so many of you coming back to check our things and keep connecting by chosing to follow our work! Really, thank you so very much! We hope to soon give you the chance to win a little thank you gift so stay tuned!

And now get your witch’s hats out, grab some candy and do the zombie shuffle! Woo! Happy Halloween!!
