Title: Fanstuffs for SIGCORP
Post by: EatingToastYay on March 20, 2016, 03:07:41 PM
Well, I did try...
I like how I made the original drawing last summer, I'm posting it way, way after actual Chinese New Year, the photo in the background is from the Fourth of July, and both Rosalene and Watts are teenagers now (I guess it's in the past now lol). Also Watts has no glasses.
There's also a bit of a silly mistake I made when I did this, which I can't really fix... It's probably fine, but otherwise:  :Evapple: apples are being thrown at my soul

Awesome.

It's a little rough (I know it's kinda the style of the picture, but e.g. the paint crossing the lines at Neil neck and the red dots above the Yukata bother me a bit),
but I think it's a cute picture. Good work on that :)

Awwww! That's so cute! Don't listen to them about the rough strokes, I love seeing drawings/paintings with that! It makes it look so cool! Great job!

Sorry for all the exclamation marks....  :reivsweat:

Well, this weekend I have some time (not really but I don't want to do my Bio outlines), so I went over the lines and redid the coloring! It's a lot neater now. I'll keep the original up though, because I still like it  8)

Nice job! The new one looks great! I still really like the old one though.
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Eli on April 02, 2016, 02:15:37 PM
I like both, I'm glad that you are keeping the first one too.
I think Eva's expression can still be improved, but nice job in overall! :)
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Dragon Mage on April 02, 2016, 05:32:21 PM
I compared the two. The picture looks way better now :) (and I don't mean it was horrible before! D: )
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Jade on April 02, 2016, 08:10:18 PM
The new one looks relatively clear, but i like both.
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Roxaszu on April 05, 2016, 03:23:10 AM
I like Neil and Eva's eyes on the first one,
But the rest, I prefer the second one :)

I think both are cute :)
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Dragon Mage on April 06, 2016, 02:59:26 AM
Yeah. I added the second one to my collection of Freebird fanart :)

I was about to say something along the lines of "wow, that's pretty good. The lines are a bit messy, but I still really like it!" and then you went and cleaned up the lines XD

Good job! It's always nice to see good TTM fanart :D

I like your new banner, EatingToastYay
Are you making other arts too ?
Outside To the moon fanart ?
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: EatingToastYay on April 20, 2016, 09:51:07 AM
Thanks Roxaszu! I do make other things, though I actually don't have too much time to make fan art and original art in general, it's always very fun  :seraismile:
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Roxaszu on April 20, 2016, 08:51:48 PM
Great, :)
Looking forward for your other arts then (if you make one and post it here). :D
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: EatingToastYay on April 22, 2016, 04:03:01 PM
Can't make new art this week, at airport rn and have to do all my homework this weekend, but if you've never dug around on my dA account this'll be new to you: (http://orig14.deviantart.net/6b0e/f/2015/359/2/b/end_of_year_revisions__know_it_s_there_by_hitthereplaybutton-d9lgibv.jpg) This was first made a little bit after the second minisode was released. In retrospect, though, I think the facial expressions on the both of them are not 100% correct; Eva should probably look more frustrated and confused, and Neil might need his ultra-reflective glasses so he can look unreadable. This may warrant a re-do later on... ;)
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: EatingToastYay on April 22, 2016, 04:38:57 PM
I'll hog the thread to make up for my inactivity in advance:(http://orig12.deviantart.net/781d/f/2016/088/f/4/summer_s_afternoon_by_hitthereplaybutton-d9wzu9r.jpg) The background, like the first, is a photo I took last summer.
Lastly, a WIP:
(http://orig06.deviantart.net/7a7a/f/2016/093/d/8/eva_and_neil_wip_by_hitthereplaybutton-d9xl710.jpg) As you can see, Eva and Neil are pretty much finished, but there is an empty shelf I want to fill with mementos, and the big space on the wall. This one might wait until FP so there are a greater selection of said mementos. Plus I need to think of a good moment to make a "painting" for on the wall space.
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Roxaszu on April 22, 2016, 08:31:45 PM
I don't know why but I think somehow you have some kind of Disney kind of style art.
To be honest,
I really like your style of drawing people. :D
Love the expression and the drawing style  :-*
I'm drawing some myself.
I think yours is really nice :)

I swear I've seen that before. A bit more of an unfinished version though.

I think it should be fine if you only use the more memorable mementos such as the platypus and a paper rabbit or else it'll get too crowded as time goes on/more games are released.

Ah, I've been watching too many Disney movies!!! More seriously tho, thanks!  :blush: that's a huge compliment for a major Disney fan like me  :)

Yeah, you might've, I replaced it a few months ago with this one! When I look up TTM fan art of the doctors, sometimes I run into my own stuff and I'm like  O_O Proof that no one can hide on the internet.
Glad you like it! I can't decide if Eva looks better with short or long hair... She's awesome as a character regardless though! And Neil looks less evil without glasses.
You're right, it's probably a good idea to only include the big mementos from each game. I wonder how many will end up being in the series???
Omg i really really really reallly like these. :-*
:kardiansmile: I'm so happy you do! I make so many in my attempts to increase the number of fan arts this fandom has. There's already quite a bit, and very beautiful, but I'd like to see moar! So be the change you'd like to see, right?
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Dragon Mage on April 23, 2016, 07:35:32 PM
I think Eva looks good with both (meaning I can't decide either :P )

I always manage to find quite a bit of fanart. You know one game that lacks more popularity and fanart than TtM? Quintessence. It's so awesome and animu! :) this game needs more recognition -_-

I'd certainly like to try Q:TBV, but I kind of realized that maybe I should stop downloading things onto this computer... It just randomly restarted a few minutes ago  :o thankfully didn't lose anything, but I'm starting to think maybe I got a virus onto it by accident. And it's not even mine!!!  :reivsweat: Ah, I'm so in trouble...
I've actually watched the first parts of the game on YouTube, and I've been noticing kind of a lot of grammar and spelling errors. I know that this is because Reives is not a native English speaker, and nowadays he's much better with it regardless (which is amazing - I'm taking Spanish classes in school, and even with my cool Profe I can't speak fluently at all...). But I've kind of been trained to pick at stuff like that, my school specializes in English and Art/Music; yet one of my school friends is sooo bad at spelling and grammar, and he doesn't have an excuse. Dude's more American than I am... and he's of Italian heritage. So it kind of bothers me and I have to go jumping around my room for a few minutes to cool off. (I know that's weird but I do the same thing whenever new Finding Paradise stuff is released, so...? Idk at this point) Also I know you might say that watching a LP was not the best idea, but that was how I discovered To The Moon! I bought it once I fell in love with it, of course.
Oh, speaking of which:
(http://orig00.deviantart.net/1a35/f/2016/114/0/6/eva_rosalene__memory_ver___by_hitthereplaybutton-da04lvi.jpg) and (http://orig12.deviantart.net/0ace/f/2016/114/9/d/eva_rosalene_by_hitthereplaybutton-da04k2u.jpg) Both are re-dos of one older picture, with one filtered to be crazy hazy like in memories, and the other's just normal.
One last one, I'm pretty happy with it: (http://orig09.deviantart.net/646a/f/2016/114/3/2/the_doctors___rosalene_and_watts__by_hitthereplaybutton-da04il4.jpg) It's big enough to be a wallpaper, but no one in my fam knows about Sigmund Corp, so I'd just get questioned about it if I used it for myself.  :'(
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Dragon Mage on April 23, 2016, 10:05:27 PM
I could use it as wallpaper ;) I could even use it as a desktop background! :D
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: EatingToastYay on April 24, 2016, 09:41:43 AM
XD Yeah, why are those even called wallpaper? It's neither paper nor wall if it's pixels on a screen!

Random by-the-books running GIF of Neil (practicing animation from a book I have, so it's not actually special, but it's fan art so): (http://orig00.deviantart.net/9e8a/f/2016/121/6/e/running_around__neil_watts__by_hitthereplaybutton-da0woqm.gif) not directly copied, but had to use many references. Still learning! Maybe one day I'll do it on my own, and with a little more attitude in that run  :) The clothes themselves and the hair are what I did on my own.
Just realized that I unintentionally connected this to my username because he has a piece of toast in his mouth. Also, no shoes. This makes me feel like Eva stole them or something to get him out the door faster.
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Reives on April 30, 2016, 07:24:01 PM
Very nicely done! And Neil does have a running sprite in FP, so rather appropriate :)

There are some really awesome stuff here, Toast. I especially like the one with the semi-transparent Eva on the memory realm beach -- both in the concept and its execution. Thanks a lot for sharing them!
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Dragon Mage on May 01, 2016, 01:14:45 AM
That's really cool Toast! :) it looks like Eva's on the boat in the background.

Hey you got a reply from Reives! (Btw Reives is the running sprite different from the normal walking one?)

Thanks DragonMage! And actually, that sounds like the greatest idea! Eva on a boat... I could work on my hair-swaying-in-the-wind techniques. :seraismile:

Woah, Reives has dropped by  O_O Thanks for checking out my corner of fanstuffs! So now Neil has a run sprite, no more speed walking outside, huh? Or will it be used in cutscenes only? Mysteries abound today. Among which is when I'm actually gonna do my homework  :-\
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Roxaszu on May 01, 2016, 07:34:13 AM
Hahaha,
So Eva steal Neil's shoes and throw them into the ocean ?

I like the way you put the detail on the Clothes and Pants sketch, Hair movement and the bouncing bread :)
I think It's kinda look half running instead of running. (Since when you running, It kinda lower the body for a couple of frame)

I found it on Pinterest, There's a lot of tutorial and reference there  :-*


Also,
There's a program called "Anime studio pro" for 2D animating,
It's really easy to use and will save a lot of time to do animating. :)

Here's an example of 2D animation when the first time I do animating and using Anime studio pro :

Thanks for the feedback and advice Roxaszu! I'll definitely give it a try whenever I can. Might take a while for me to make another animation (I'm lazy  :seraisweat: ) but I'm looking forward to it!

Wow toast, you're really pumping this stuff out :D

You're really good, I can't wait to see more of your stuff.

That's gonna look snazzy as heck! I think a good painting could be a painting of the shuttle taking off. Or maybe a painting of the fabled top and bottom parts of the rocket during construction ;)

Thanks LegacyB!
Got the GIF put together today:
(http://orig11.deviantart.net/0f36/f/2016/126/1/0/on_a_boat__eva_rosalene__by_hitthereplaybutton-da1ip4p.gif)
It's less involved than the running one, but I instead took the time to add shading to Eva. Thanks to DragonMage, she is now on a sailboat! Though I unfortunately did not take this opportunity to make fancy wind in the hair.
That water was kind of a pain though- almost 60 frames of changing opacity...
Eva is trying not to smile but I'm pretty sure that didn't work out  :P

I kinda wonder what Neil and Eva'd be like if they had different jobs... Or if they were in different Sci-fi universes, like Doctor Who or Star Trek or one of those mediocre light novel anime adaptations. (Might actually be pretty funny.)

I know... Though they're good enough characters to save like, anything. Maybe not the Star Trek reboots or The Asterisk War, but... Actually maybe. Perhaps. If you changed all the characters and adjusted the scripts to fit, and only left the story and premise. It would be more like a parody tho.

Hehe, that would be an interesting nickname...
Have an old ABS painting. Not directly related (no Colin or specific bird), but is still fan art. If I do come up with a lot of ABS art I'll move it to a different place.
It's a large size image tho  :-\
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: Double A on May 15, 2016, 12:26:54 AM
It's no big deal if the image is very large. I just right click it and open the image in a new tab. Problem solved.

Anyways, nice painting there! Took me a bit of time to figure out what was what due to the colours, but it's still good.  :)
Title: Re: When you try to make fanart
Post by: EatingToastYay on May 16, 2016, 01:13:53 PM
Thanks! Yeah, I forgot that mixing yellow with black apparently makes yucky green when using Tempera paint...
Something I finished today was a shot of the plane from FP! Though Eva is pretty much blocked off... it looks like my awkward penguin-plane now has long, black hair.
Does anyone know what goes on the underside of a plane like that? I can go back and fix it later on.

Whoops, now it's showing up sideways? Ah well.
I was hoping to make some progress on the transcription of To The Moon I started working on back in March or whatnot by now, but I guess school has other plans. Maybe once we're done with finals I can actually do it. At this rate Reives + Freebird Games will complete Finding Paradise first...

Title: Re: Fanstuffs for SIGCORP
Post by: EatingToastYay on May 30, 2016, 07:51:33 PM
I'm pretty sure that's one of Sigmund Corp's greatest mysteries... I remember if you talk to him as Eva in the first minisode, she refers to "you guys" when she asks him how his last case/mission went. So maybe he works with more than one person?
Title: Re: Fanstuffs for SIGCORP
Post by: Dragon Mage on May 30, 2016, 11:44:31 PM
"You guys" can be used to refer to two people. It's just easier than saying "you and such n such" or "you two" I guess.
Title: Re: Fanstuffs for SIGCORP
Post by: EatingToastYay on June 03, 2016, 09:34:25 AM
Yeah...
Anyways, I wonder why he had problems with bureaucracy. Something about the company is very complex and difficult, like legal issues?
From Merriam-Webster online Dictionary: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bureaucracy (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bureaucracy)

This one was just for fun - it's like a Disney bootleg  :P
(made using Photoshop magic basically. It's taken off of a frame from The Little Mermaid)
No credit to me, that's for the artists who made the movie!
(http://orig02.deviantart.net/7931/f/2016/173/b/e/disneybootleg_by_hitthereplaybutton-da79god.jpg)
To be honest, it's not all that believable. Neil probably would have already fallen off the boat bc Eva shoved him.
I'm kind of shocked at how tiny Ariel's body is in comparison to Eric's, esp. in the original picture. But somehow they get away with it... Not sure how I feel about that.

Hah, I was about to ask about some RosaWatts fanart :P

It's so cute :3 Kinda reminds me of that scene from Tangled. I listening to TtM's Once Upon a Memory soundtrack right now so I'm getting more feels from this :')

Edit I realized a little while after that it was that scene from The Little Mermaid.

The pictures are actually smaller!!!!
Trying to figure out faces for a redo of one of the drawings I did last year. It's up somewhere on the thread too, just gotta find it.

I think I actually will skip out on the opaque glasses, but then it's a question of what is Neil even thinking??? If I can figure it out, it would kinda be like dramatic irony where the audience knows something the character (in this case Eva I guess) doesn't. Most of the time it seems to be the other way around in the series though.
Also gotta change the poses, I think. Maybe the angle as well. They are sort of awkward. And maybe I should try to make actual snowflakes...?
Title: Re: Fanstuffs for SIGCORP
Post by: EatingToastYay on June 26, 2016, 06:42:58 PM
Gosh darn it. I just saw the minisode again and it turns out... They're standing at least 2-3 yards away from each other. Also when Neil turns he turns TOWARDS THE BUILDING UGHHH. Which means if I want to show his face I can't really show the building behind him, unless I want to exclude Eva's face, which is a total no in this scene. And I would have to flip the sketch I'm already doing. Why u do this life???

When Neil thinks it's a good idea to put his hand on Eva's shoulder at the very last second. Also Eddie has forgotten that he's not supposed to close his eyes.
Roxie looks like a total newbie; on a timeline I guess it would have been taken soon after she was hired. (she almost looks like she has no eyebrows  :P )

The left side was me trying to figure out how I should be drawing them two rascals  XD didn't really work because I think I was stuck in Asian-face drawing mode that day. Don't ask me how that works cause I have no idea, but like, if you spend too much time drawing one way then you get stuck for a bit  :reivsweat: I was working on a self-portrait practice, maybe that's why?
I mean seriously though, I only have to go through one iteration of Neil but I had to do 5 of Eva! (not counting the more exaggerated anime ones) Eva's face is difficult cause I don't know where she's from! Neil is easy enough cause of his name and appearance, but Evaaaaaa why??? Does anyone know where Eva is from? Her last name isn't really one that occurs enough to appear on the internet reliably, and her first name is too common. What a dilemma... but it is the perfect name for her.
Right side was sketches of them, for practice. They vary in quality:
I was hoping I could nail the "Eva on a plane" one but my arm-drawing skills apparently failed me. Also couldn't really get that face... might have to wait until the game actually comes out so I can understand the context.
Eva with tablet was just for foreshortening practice, but it looks okay.
Eva on the couch and the backlit Neil were kind of just drawn on a whim. really need to work on varying angles of faces.
Thinking of stuff to draw, and I remembered the scene where Neil puts the bucket on the door frame  :P so there it is.

welp on the upside I'm finally getting slightly better at drawing hands. But my other mortal enemy is drawing feet...ugh.

XD Neil is the king of memes, after all!
I think both Eva and Neil are Canadian citizens, but Neil's ancestry is likely French, German or English/Scottish based on last name alone. Technically it wouldn't make sense for him to be of "American" heritage because most people in America today were originally immigrants from Europe(or Africans brought for slavery purposes), and he's definitely not descended from an indigenous people, or at most, very distantly related.

Ah, you'd be surprised! Family names are based off of their language of origin.

Any one of them would easily stand on its own in any culture as individual personality, but combining them all in addition to his name makes it more likely than not that he is a white person of European ancestry who grew up either in the United States of America or Canada. (Farther east European countries are less likely due to the differences in naming and language, though it's possible his mother was from an area around there because we don't know her maiden name, and likely never will.)

Since they are in an English-speaking country that drives on the right, they're either American or Canadian.

I think both of them are American. Or, at least, they live in America.

Spoiler: show
Let's assume that Johnny's retirement home is located near the metro area where Sigmund is located (seems fair, as it wouldn't be economical to drive across the country just to work with one patient). Let's also assume that Johnny's retirement home is in the same country as where he grew up (I feel like that's a safe assumption to make). In the alternate history, Johnny becomes an Astronaut through NASA, the American space program, and not CSA, the Canadian space program, it's safe to assume that Johnny's American, and that the game  mainly takes place in America.

Had a random urge to draw cocoacoconuts24's character Cecilia from one of the fanfictions they wrote about how Eva and Neil ended up playing a duet on their saxophones together  :seraismile: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11209122/1/Eva-s-Duet (https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11209122/1/Eva-s-Duet)
Too bad there wasn't really that much information about how she dressed, I kind of just guessed a rebel hoodie.

I had this weird idea for a story where Neil claims he burned the data for someone's memories onto a bunch of floppy disks and he's running around the office with just an armful of them while Rob is chasing him down.

Post by: EatingToastYay on December 25, 2016, 06:55:10 PM
Of course! (Neil would dump them on the floor once Rob caught up to him, then run off to his office. Rob'd probably try to figure out how to get rid of them until Roxie reminds him that to put even a single memory onto floppy disks, he would have needed hundreds--if not thousands-- of 'em. Then one has to wonder why Neil had any in the first place, but that's Neil for ya.)

:seraismile: That was yours, DM, yeah? Coolio, I remember reading it a while ago, but went over it again today. I think it's really interesting how the SigCorp employees and their relationships can be interpreted in such different ways! The back and forth letters between Neil and Eva are also a neat concept, though admittedly I didn't fully grasp how Neil gave her his letter and its contents, which seem to come directly from him in wherever that nice place with his grandfather may be (dead, of course) and why they both refer to it as simply visiting instead of permanently being there; it is true that some religions believe in reincarnation, meaning he would be born again and "return" to the world, but then that raises the question of why his grandfather is still not reincarnated, and if he is in nirvana or the equivalent, then it would mean that Neil has escaped the cycle of rebirth and he would not return... ??? I think I'm running myself in pointless circles over a minor detail, though.
On a different note about the story, the replacement of Neil with Jeremy makes me think about the circumstances that caused Roxanne to become Rob's partner. There seems to be a pretty big age gap between the two of them, and Rob seems to be experienced in the field while Roxie is still fairly new to the company at the time of the first minisode. This would have to have meant that something happened to Rob's previous partner, like how it occurs with Neil and Eva in your fiction?

Seems you have a lot of questions that need to be cleared up.

First off, Neil and his grandfather are, not to be subtle, dead and in heaven. Neil's letter was kinda a hypothetical thing, though I was trying to make it seem casual and hide the point that Neil has passed away till the right time.

Also, Jeremy was just a random name I thought up. A background character with an optimistic perk, nothing else. Nothing happened with the other doctors, I just imagine Roxie and Eddie being the funny guys around the office (remember when Eddie was drunk?)

That's about it I think.

Oh, I was referring to the canon of SC in general, and wondering why Rob and Roxie were paired with each other in the first place. Seems like an interesting story to learn, though I suppose we never will...

The offices must be used to death, huh? It seems like instead of retiring, most agents work until they die of old age.
No one notes that it is unusual for Willis and Taima to still be working, after all. Lisa and Eva just say that they've been working too hard; Lisa says she doesn't think she'd be able to perform the procedure on the McMillans when the time comes (it's implied that Eva and Neil will do it), but it doesn't seem like anything new to her. Eva is uneasy about it; she and Neil were probably the ones to replace the last team and didn't experience their loss, since all of the offices are currently full, and Alistair (a nod to TtM's first fan-fiction by Merlan) seems to have left (...or died, but that doesn't line up with Eva's reluctance to face the reality of Willis and Taima's eventual deaths) and been replaced with Logan soon after TtM.

This is what I think is weird about Rob(spoiler tab in case ya just wanna skip, it's probably only important to me lol):
Spoiler: show
All of the other reindeer sets of partners are close to the same age as each other. It sort of appears as if whenever a team dies, an new one is hired, with most people coming from the same age group of mid/late-20s to early 30s, and probably straight from university after attaining a doctorate, curious and not knowing any better than to apply, like Eva, who thought the job was widely respected due to its ideals.
So then, why is he a different age than Roxanne? It's still possible that he was just hired with her later than is typical, but then he wouldn't have the authority to chew out Neil, as Roxie was obviously hired after Neil and Eva (when she tries to give directions to the meeting room, Neil says, "dudette, I've worked here for years" and it wouldn't have made any sense to say that if she already knew) and it seems that experience is required to gain credibility of advice in their job.
Was there just no one else qualified or willing to become an agent until the time around which Eva, Neil, Logan, and Roxanne are hired in relatively quick succession? Or was there something else that happened?


Also, in regards to Roxanne being cheerful after Neil's death, she could definitely a driving force to keep the office going! She's full of energy  ;) but I feel, a little, that something is a bit off with her in the SC universe as well?

Maybe it was by chance they got paired?

I heard Alistar was moved to another Sigmund Corp of something like that?

Whether they had great character development in the minisodes or not, we don't particularly know that much about the characters. Though I guess I could have changed Roxie a little bit to be more sorrowful about his death or even implied that more time had passed than originally thought. I just thought it's be nice to have a bit of light-heartedness in the whole thing. Then again, I wrote this ages ago (June 2015 according to FF) so ofcourse there was gonna be some questions here and there.

Perhaps, but that specific color scheme is more identified with River, so maybe it was green after all? I remember Eva wasn't wearing her lab coat at the end of the second minisode, but it was dark in the room, so the lighting may have messed with the colors.

Thanks you two!
Scratch is really crazy, but possibly not the best choice for speed draws. She turned out nicely!

Yeah, it started to slow down a lot while I was making the image after about 50 frames. The nice thing about vectors, though, is that they scale infinitely - that's def a bonus (though sometimes they're tough to wrangle with when it comes to shaping the way you want).
I also like the programming part of it, so it's not really like a video where there is a definite ending point, but the music can loop infinitely and particles can float around and such!
Logan; I think this is only like the second time I've drawn him:
(http://orig12.deviantart.net/c62a/f/2017/014/a/b/logan01_14_2017_by_hitthereplaybutton-davf07w.png)

Out of all the other doctors, you seem to draw Roxanne quite a lot. Not to mention other posts about Robert and Logan. Are they your favorites after Eva and Neil? :deepstuff:

Hm, maybe I'd be forced to admit at this point that I am lazy, and Roxanne fits best into the age and appearance of people I'm used to drawing... So's Logan.

Aside from that though, Rob and Roxie have been the most involved side characters in the overall series (not counting those exclusive to TtM). Out of all the characters:
- they are featured in the opening of the first minisode when the tomatoes are thrown at them outside
- Eva talks to Roxie in an obligatory cutscene when she walks to the party (1st m.)
- Eva has to talk to Roxie to advance the 1st m. at the party
- Neil mentions Rob when he tells Eva to close the door (1st m.)
- Neil has to talk to Roxie after Eva leaves in order to find her (1st m.)
- Neil mentions Rob again when he makes the random speech at the end of 1st m.
- Neil comments how he will record Rob getting scolded on the custom track of the sound machine @ beginning of 2nd minisode
- Rob and Roxanne have an event in the office hallway while you get Eva's briefcase; Roxie is outside first, waiting for Rob, then Rob is outside after you get the briefcase, waiting for Roxie(2nd m.)
- Roxanne is seen in an obligatory cutscene as Eva leaves the office, in the same one Rob walks after her and talks to Neil (2nd m.)
- Roxanne is the one who drives Lily and the twins to the office (2nd m.)

Outside of the games:
-they are the only two other doctors (aka besides Eva and Neil) to be on FG's Happy Chinese New Year pixel
-they are the only other doctors to be on the image for Kan's cover of LoSaF
-they are the only other doctors on the most recent holiday pixel

So yeah, there's been a lot of those two. I didn't even really realize just how many times you can run into them until I started listing all the instances! It's not that you can't talk to the other agents (Lisa and Eddie honestly might win for the number of different dialogues available for them because of the "drunk Eddie" dialogue), but for the rest of them, it's usually not required to go talk to them, and more like extra establishment of the world/setting. I'd say next in information provided about characters would be Willis and Taima. In a lot of optional dialogue, they def. show a lot of character, plus there is some mention about their future and their death by Willis and Lisa. Also they are in two obligatory cutscenes in the second minisode, once where they walk into the conference room where Neil and Eva are, and once when Eva goes to the lobby.



so the point of all that was, I find it easier to draw Rob and Roxie bc I feel like I have a more secure grasp on their character traits.
(I still don't post stuff of Willis and Taima bc I have trouble drawing old people. same with Lisa and Eddie actually. need to fix that eventually though...it's sorta important. maybe during break from school?)

I didn't realize how important they really were O_O maybe they're close friends of Eva and Neil's, perhaps even before Sigmund. I wonder if we'll find out about their history (then again judging by Quintessence and Neil's condition, I think we will :P )

Well, I think in the past you drew Eva and Neil, right? Maybe you could try again and it would be a lot better than the last time! I should dig up my first drawings of the doctors, though I'm not really sure where they are or if they're digital or traditional. Some of my older digital ones are def showing their age, so if I did a comparison I bet it'd be fun  :vikonsmile:

The relationship dynamic still strikes me as "colleagues". For ex, my father works in computer engineering, and while he seems to know a lot of information (kids/fam, college, achievements, where they live, where they're from, what they act like, etc.) about his co-workers and talks to them regularly, he wouldn't consider any of them friends.
Also Rob and Neil seem to mutually disapprove of each other, and Roxie mentioned how having Neil as a partner would probably annoy her, so... Who knows tho? I'd really love to know about all the peeps' backstories  :seraismile:

I'm pretty sure this was one of my first major digital drawings other than one of Eva (on this computer; honestly, there might be older stuff on another one but I can't find any rn). It's soo old! This makes me want to try and pinpoint the first time I ever made any TtM fan art on paper...
On Feb 17, I suppose I'll redraw this and make a comparison!  ;) I think that's a Friday, so that lines up weirdly well with my free time.

Cool, I like 'em!
It's snowing a lot right now; looks thicker than fog...

Lovely atmosphere and perspective. :) Don't know why, but I always thought there was something winter-y and mint-y about her.

Thanks, Reives  :seraismile:
You're right, there really is that quality to Roxie. I wonder what exactly about her design/personality causes that impression? Other than her name, I guess she has a blue scarf and blue eyes, but that's more like "water" or "sky" color.

Haha, maybe I can a little! Though I'm actually still getting used to it, myself  :seraismile:
So, I usually start out with a regular sketch, which isn't really that different from my other stuff:
(http://orig06.deviantart.net/2ea5/f/2017/044/5/d/01_by_hitthereplaybutton-dayzdo1.png)
Then, I create a new layer underneath it and do some value shading, so I know what I generally want the art to look like.
(http://orig14.deviantart.net/c53c/f/2017/044/0/6/02_by_hitthereplaybutton-dayzdnu.png)
...I suppose this is also the point at which I notice inaccuracies in the sketch, like how Eva's face is lopsided  :P Now I gotta go fix that!

Okay, that's a little better.
Now I'm gonna start on the actual lineless part of it on a new layer. Starting with the hair that's in the back (btw, I turned off visibility on the shading for now)
(http://orig04.deviantart.net/55d7/f/2017/044/e/8/04_by_hitthereplaybutton-dayzgju.png)
It looks a bit weird at the moment, which is why I'm adding the skin color:
(http://orig05.deviantart.net/fb49/f/2017/044/b/8/05_by_hitthereplaybutton-dayzhre.png)
By the way, I'm using a textured brush on Photoshop (the "pencil" preset) to do this. It's a little more forgiving than the normal brush when it comes to shaking outlines and such.
You can sorta see where I'm going with this now; I'm starting with flat blocks of color, and once they're all done, I will add shading on top of it.
Now I'll go off and finish doing all that... be back asap, I guess!

Since I often forget the exact shape I need to fill in over the colors that are already there, I move the sketch layer over the final layer and use it as a guideline. (it's not in the image above, though)

There are no lines to help the viewer see where light and shadow are, so I try to make the shading as realistic as will match the (still anime-ish) style. The eyes and eyebrows are still missing for now:
(http://orig04.deviantart.net/4146/f/2017/044/3/c/07_by_hitthereplaybutton-dayzpts.png)
I'm doing this all on one layer so I don't confuse myself amongst several, but it's not a requirement, and could be helpful to use multiple if it suits you!
(http://orig04.deviantart.net/9cfa/f/2017/044/9/1/08_by_hitthereplaybutton-dayztl2.png)
After highlights, adjustments, eyebrows and such... there's just the eyes left. Uh oh  :P This will either turn out very well, or very terribly.

Well, it's about as done as it can be, but there's a ton of stuff wrong with it...
1. The facial expression is pretty much gone. I always thought that games like Life is Strange had poor expressiveness because whoever rigged the models and animated them did a bad job, buuut now I realize that semi-realistic to realistic styles are really difficult to give sufficient life to  :-\
2. There's too little light contrast, and it's also in the wrong places. Though it's still a bit beyond me as to exactly where and how strong it really needs to be.
3. The eyebrows aren't symmetrical.
4. The EYES aren't symmetrical!! ugh
5. Chose the wrong colors for the lab coat.
6. ...the nose is also not symmetrical.
7. Actually, the face in general is not symmetrical.


Well, that ends my endeavor for today.
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, when I get to reflect on the fact that I am forever alone  :P

I am speechless. That was just meant to be a compliment, but I guess I should actually try it out. I can do steps #1 and #2 already, so... :P

2. There's too little light contrast, and it's also in the wrong places. Though it's still a bit beyond me as to exactly where and how strong it really needs to be.

The neck has a nice dark colour, but the face needs more dark places all over. Looking at "deep" paintings, I always notice how the artists use almost complete black and white for the strongest contrasts (in this case it should be the darkest between neck, cheek and hair, I suppose).

You are not alone just because you don't have a boy- or girlfriend. You still have friends and family! ^_^ ...and chocolate! Lots of chocolate!

If you can draw it, you don't need it irl ;) but they do taste better than they look drawn :P

Have I mentioned Ria (my persona) is crazy about cookies? :)

It's a cat. Originally it was sitting by Rox, but then I remembered cats shouldn't be near chocolates... :whaaa?:

Lovely portrait painting of Eva, by the way! Neat to see the steps and layers too.

Post by: EatingToastYay on February 16, 2017, 01:50:57 PM
Oh, I see it now! At first I thought it was a bunny, since it's only showing part of the head  :3 And thanks, it's always fun to draw her and Neil! I should probably get to forming my own characters like DM, though: mental exercise and such.
Title: Re: Fanstuffs for SIGCORP
Post by: EatingToastYay on February 18, 2017, 12:23:36 AM
Well, I missed my February 17 deadline for this comparison  :P I'm gonna wait until I get some sleep to finish it, but have at least most of the portrait part of it for now!
I drew Neil in 2015, which I think was the first time I attempted to represent him in digital medium:
(http://pre13.deviantart.net/9482/th/pre/i/2017/048/0/0/comparison01_by_hitthereplaybutton-dazgl64.png)
You can see the most obvious problem was the shaky lines, and that the proportions didn't quite match up well to each other. (there's more than that, but this is kinda old...no point for me right now to critique it. you guys can add things you noticed about it too though, it's still helpful)
This is the sketch for the comparison; it has the plans of what I want to eventually have in the final drawing:
(http://orig07.deviantart.net/a92d/f/2017/048/b/d/comparison02_by_hitthereplaybutton-dazgl61.png)
I was thinking it would be a sort of commemoration selfie of their first day officially working for Sigmund.
Finally, this is what I have so far:
(http://orig12.deviantart.net/5117/f/2017/048/0/9/neilwatts_02172017_by_hitthereplaybutton-dazgl9j.png)
Gonna definitely add the glasses and try to tweak the teeth, not quite used to drawing them in a more realistic style.
There's still that issue with symmetry y'all saw earlier with the Eva portrait, which does bother me, but it probably just needs more practice. (it seems to have also originated in the sketch, so I need to be more careful next time. The smile is crooked on purpose though...I'm not that bad yet)

Weird how stuff can change in just a couple of years! I never thought I would improve at all in the past...

Something about the grin feels a bit off (I know it's probably very difficult to get right). o.
But it's still a very good picture, especially the hair is looking awesome and the shadings on the shirt and face are also done quite well :)
Title: Re: Fanstuffs for SIGCORP
Post by: EatingToastYay on February 19, 2017, 11:12:46 AM
Yeah, I think the issue with the smile has something to do with the teeth, and probably the lips as well. It's good such an odd deficiency shows up now; I can start working on it sooner.
