Mr Marcus World 2.0!

Me and my brother decided to do a Nay Event, and since the Return to Mr Marcus World was the most fun one we've done in awhile, we decided to do a modified version of it. Here is the post where I talked about this event initially. 

Rather than posting all of the events in one post, I'm going to split it up into a few posts. This post will include all of the various ones that didn't have very great results, but were fun to do.

Mr Marcus World Tests! 
Basically they had to draw from random prompts like a family member or friend, which were chosen by picking a random card from another separate deck of cards.

Kicky drew his partner for the event: Chozu!

Ralphie had to draw his favorite World Leader, so he chose Arashi.

Pokemon Fusions!

For this activity, we used a random number generator to pick a number between 1 and 802. That number corresponded to the Pokemon's number from the National Dex. From there, the Nay would have to be fused with whichever Pokemon was chosen. Some interesting ones were chosen.

Kai fused with Silcoon

Rabiah fused with Purugly

Oekaki Drawing with the Mouse!
A very difficult activity. We had to draw on this Oekaki Board (which limits the file dimensions to 300x300 pixels), using only the mouse to draw. The prompts were chosen from this site, using a random number generator to randomize the prompts.

Piko had to draw himself with live snakes in his pocket.

Amber had to draw herself at her desk with everything that's on it.

Blind Drawings!
This one was quite a challenge. We had to keep a pure black layer at 99% opacity at the top of the file and draw the partner on a layer beneath. So it was very difficult to see where you had left off last, meaning it is basically drawing blind, ESPECIALLY for the colors.

Pun had to draw Scroll

Johnny had to draw Vhan

Left-Handed Challenge!
Just as the title says, this challenge I had to draw using my left hand. I'm right-handed, so it was very challenging!

Pubby drew himself
Mikey drew himself

Illust Maker Portraits!
The Nays had to recreate themselves using this Illust Maker website. I used to ALWAYS use this site when I was in grade school, and I'm surprised it's still around. But this was a funny little event.

Challenges & Fanart

A few different things: a deviantART challenge with a background, and some fanart! I haven't done either of these in awhile.

 I did this as part of deviantART's "Take the Fan Art Mashup Challenge!" Since I got the challenge about "A Doge" I HAD to draw my character Doge who came before the meme. And it was a silly concept thinking about Doge with a keyblade. I mean he fights with nunchucks, but why not? Also I had to look up what Summoner's Rift was because I've only played League of League of Legends like 3 times in my life, haha.

Since I started playing DanganRonpa V3 the other night, I had to sketch my four favorites! I'm still on chapter 2, but I already know who I like best.

Draw This Again

The other day I rewrote one of my old Eventures (that hadn't been touched since high school), and I figured, while I was at it, I might as well redraw one of the old drawings from that Eventure! The original was drawn in 2009, while the current was drawn in 2017. What a difference 8 years can make!

King Grenna & Melcho

I've been trying to draw more of these characters so I can complete my website. The alphabetical list is so close to being complete, so I'm seeing how many I can fill in before I get my official hoodie with the site link printed on the back.

King Grenna is the World Leader of Sram, a frozen World overrun by robots known as Volzineons. He meets a tragic end when The Gek leads the Great Volzineon War. King Grenna cares about his children and attempts to help them escape the war, but Grenna Jr is the only one who makes it. King Grenna is successful World Leader who enjoys conversing with the people of his World on a regular basis.

Melcho is a very incompetent Bird-in-Training who is very bad with kids. He lets his kids go out of control and cheat in competitions, and will do anything to make sure that he wins, because of his competitive personality. He ends up getting fired because of his lack of bird-in-training knowledge, and his lack of experience. He doesn't take his responsibilities seriously enough.

Ottilie & Von

I drew some more characters since I haven't drawn either of them yet, and wanted to figure out how they look.

Ottilie is Amelia's older cousin who is always looking out for her. As of recently, she has had to distance herself a little more from Amelia because her family life has been keeping her busy, but she still stops by to visit whenever she can. She has a two-year-old daughter at home with her loving husband, so Ottilie is very passionate about raising a successful family. When she was younger, she would hang out with Amelia a lot more, and the two of them were basically best friends. Ottilie always acted as the older sister and has been a huge role model for Amelia. Even though Ottilie is busy with family life, she took two weeks off of work to investigate Amelia's case when she is trapped in Beddy Bye World, because she cares a lot about her.

Von is a member of Red Moon who fights with her hair. She is easily frustrated and prefers to do her own way, rather than working with others. Von is usually angry and does not get along very well with her teammates.

Back with Eventure Doodles!

Although I only have a few more to draw, I'm continuing my Eventure Doodles project.

106: Pubby and Lonny Reunited Eventure
When Pubby reunites with his friend Lonny, there are some unexpected events that occur.

107: Delusional Breakthrough Eventure
Gair helps Amelia escape from her terrible situation, and offers her the idea of becoming a Nay.

Bogure Eventure

The other night I re-wrote the Bogure Eventure, so I drew some assets to go along with it.

When Snull's mask breaks off, her horrifying true self is revealed. She also slowly begins to remember the memories she was forced to forget.

This is a spooky video that Rabiah creates to scare The Nays and play a joke on them. The Nays are very creeped out by it, so she does her job successfully.

Nay-A-Day Drawings

I decided to draw a few more characters from my Daily Character project that I used to do every day.

Pancake is an outcast of Biggert City who doesn't have many friends other than his brother Peabody. He's shy and often picked on for his weight, so he mostly keeps to himself. When he's sad, he finds comfort in eating his favorite snacks, which ends up adding to his obesity.

Kay was once a fighter who trained alongside Elftress, but once things settled down, she abandoned fighting to become a waitress. She only trained and fought during the Great Red Moon War, when fighters were in high demand. She never really enjoyed it and only did it to help out, so once the war ended, she was able to relax. Though she knows how to fight, she tries to avoid using those skills unless it's completely necessary. She and Elftress entered into a relationship towards the end of the war, but it wasn't public knowledge until more recently.

Nays Scrapbooking

Some fun little Nay Events that I thought up the other night.

So I beat the first episode of Life is Strange Before the Storm the other night, and that inspired me to do a Nay Event! I made a journal inspired by LiS, where I'm planning on making each Nay talk about some kind of experiences that they're having, while doodling things off to the side. This one had more text than drawings, but it's just the first one, so I'm still getting used to the format.

When deciding on what to do, Arianna, Spicco, and Lee chose the Bag-a-Book Project. Some of the other The Nays are confused why anyone would choose to do a book report for fun.

Cold Springs Sketches

I re-read the Cold Springs Eventure that I did right before I left for camp, and I decided to do some sketches based on things that happened during that Eventure.

Amelia cheers up after her friends remind her that none of them made it to college, so her being a college drop-out isn't all that bad.

Kali attacks her friend Piko when she thinks he's an illusion, so he tries to bring her back to her senses.

Gamble Rumble

These were some sketches I drew before and after my Las Vegas trip!

Gair likes playing Poker, so I decided to doodle him with a bunch of Poker chips. Even though I didn't really gamble while I was there.

Squidwik and Grenna are preparing for Mokla by celebrating the Wall of Weird.

First Digital Drawings in Awhile!

As soon as I got back home, I drew some quick digital sketches, because I've missed drawing digitally. I'm excited to draw a bunch more now that I'm back!

I'm back from camp and part one of my vacation, which means I get to use my cintiq at long last! I gotta get used to drawing digitally again, but it feels so good.

Me and my brother were working on a project that involved film strips and we kept on calling them filmies. So here's Gostream with the filmies.

Summer Commission

I didn't get a whole lot of time at all to draw digitally this summer, but I had enough time to make one commission! One of my Assistant Directors this summer commissioned me to draw all of us who were in the Breer building at Stanford one week, in the style of Demon Days by the Gorillaz.

Las Vegas Life Drawings

While I was on vacation in Las Vegas, I managed to get a bit of time to sketch people. It was a fun trip with lots of good food and good company!

Sketchbook Drawings from Kentucky Trip

While I was visiting Jinny in Kentucky, we spent a lot of time drawing together, so these are all of the sketchbook drawings from that trip!
