The Legendary General Art Thread

posted by Hayden on - last edited - Viewed by 8.3K users

Well, we've got a Sam & Max Fanart Thread, a Monkey Island Fanart Thread, so why not a thread for art in general? We've obviously got a lot of talented artists on the Telltale forum, and it would be a shame to just restrict them to showing us just their Sam & Max and Monkey Island art. So if you've got any awesome art that you're proud of and want to share with us, post it here! It doesn't have to be an art piece of games, it could be movie art, art inspired by books, inspired by songs, art of bands or musicians, or something completely random; it can be of anything - as it is a place for art in general. So yeah, share, show us what you've got!

    So, this is a comic idea I've been thinking about. It's called Booyah Overlords.

    So, there are these college kids, right? And they signed up for this experiment, see? But then, they found out that the teacher who was conducting it was actually an alien, and that he gave them super-powers and revealed that the Earth is actually secretly ruled by these evil aliens who are planning to feed the world to a giant robot spaceship. So, anyway, the college kids then decided that in order to save the Earth, they have to conquer it.

    I got the idea from when my friends and I were in college, and we signed up for this experiment. But then, we found out that the teacher who was conducting it was actually an alien, and that he gave us super-powers and revealed that the Earth is actually secretly ruled by these evil aliens who are planning to feed the world to a giant robot spaceship. So, anyway, we then decided that in order to save the Earth, we have to conquer it. Also, this was definitely real, and not a drug trip.

    That idea is pretty darn awesome.
    (The drawing is excellent too. Has a nice style)

    I personally had an awesome idea for a comic/manga ages ago.

    To sum it up: it was basically a comic/manga (I'd prefer it in manga form, though it could work as a comic too), following a average teen.
    But like many of my favourite manga's this teen is in a very unusual situation.

    You see he has been charged with taking care of his best friend, who is the most powerful entity in the known universe!

    Though reluctant to have such responsibility he's pretty much the only person who can get through to this guy, as his "friend" is probably the most childish and illogical being in the universe as well.

    The main first story ark would basically explain the background to each character, and a few stories covering the crazy stuff that happens each day.
    The main plot, would basically involve the idea that the "friend", (I haven't thought up names yet. Still very rough), is rapidly losing control over his powers.
    You see the power-limiting bracelets that he wears were only designed to handle the power he had as a child.
    They have been malfunctioning more frequently over his early teen years, (it explains why he's so crazy. Since he has to concentrate very, very hard on containing his energy, he has little brain left for anything else), to the point that the universe was almost destroyed.

    So the two have to find the elusive race of aliens that created such advanced technology, and get them to repair and upgrade the device, (else it may break entirely and the whole of reality will collapse under such monumentous power).

    Which is much harder than anticipated, since after an intergalactic disagreement, the race decided to sever their ties with The Council, and return to an unknown area of space.

    They have clues, they have obstacles, and they are running out if time.
    And even if they find them, they have no garuntees.

    Pretty strange, huh? :D
    (But the idea is mostly there, the details just need to be all written down and properly fleshed out)

    Bleh... I wish I could draw... :/

    I'd read it.

  • @Tredlow: I think I may have said this before. If not then I was thinking it at least. I really love your style of art.

  • Just a little pic to bump this thread up.

    Hey Cheri, guess what: You're not the only one here can draw ponies!

    Thanks! Though I really should improve my background art. I really suck at drawing perspectives.

    Anyway, here's some stuff from my sketchbook.

  • Tredlow, your rough sketches are awesome! Post some more! I do think the character looks a bit too much like a certain earthworm though

    The last 4 weeks I've been working for a music video for Dutch artist Guus Meeuwis and rapper Gers Pardoel.

    People who know stuff about animation know that 4 weeks isn't really long for a 4 minute animation ;)

    Ooh, yeah. He started off as an attempt to draw Earthworm Jim, but halfway, I decided to do something else. But, yeah, EWJ definitely inspired it.

    Here's a page of an early attempt to draw a comic. I didn't really have a story in mind, so I just started drawing whatever.

    And, since my handwriting sucks, here's what they're saying:
    PANEL 1
    Gooz: Okay, now we need to go twelve paces to the south of the big rock.
    Glob: Gooz, that's a cliff.
    PANEL 2
    Gooz: That's what the map says: "Go twelve paces south of the big rock"
    PANEL 3
    Glob: Yeah? well, I'll bet in Map School, that map was in a special needs class, if you know what I mean!
    PANEL 4
    Gooz: Dammit! We got screwed again!
    Glob: I told you; when a monkey starts handing out maps to ancient treasures, you're allowed to be suspicious.
    PANEL 5
    Gooz: Come on, pal. Let's go to The Silver Wombat and get some of Pete's famous anti-depressants...
    Glob: You mean his nachos?
    Gooz: Yes.
    Voice: Help...
    PANEL 6
    Gooz: WAIT, did you hear that, Glob?!
    Glob: What? What?! I heard nothing!
    PANEL 7
    Gooz: Sorry, pal. I forgot that an adventurer's ear is more advanced than an ordinary one!
    Glob: Gooz, you have no ears.
    Voice: Help me...
    Gooz: Sir, are you alright?

    It was sort of a fantasy comic. I was high on Bone and Discworld while drawing it, I guess, and the dialogues are kinda Sam and Max-ish.
