Hey there everybody. so I guess Round two is pretty much done as of today. Time to vote for round 3.
My participation for round 3 may be more limited. I’m not sure yet. I don’t have a lot of free time, and I kind of feel like my basic foundation art skills are starting to slip a little bit, so I think I might start doing anatomy studies and stuff again for my recreational drawing.
If others are still interested in continuing the challenge, I’ll still be happy to set it up though, and I’ll definately participate, just maybe not as fully or as promptly. Additionally, Chrno has made an offer to run round 3 much like I did the first one, with the proper web gallery, but with a catch. He’s a Darkstalkers fan, so he’ll only want to do that if Darkstalkers wins the vote.
Here are my thoughts on the games, and some reasons why they were chosen or not chosen.
Darkstalkers: Very unique characters. Most people are at least somewhat familiar with the series. Decent amount of official art out there. Chrno will run a proper gallery.
Marvel Super Heroes or X-Men: CotA: Don’t we all have a Marvel comics fan inside somewhere that wants to draw some superheroes? Instantly recognizable characters.
Guilty Gear: Cool characters, good fanbase.
Project Justice: While the designs are not as crazy as DS or GG, the characters in PJ are a lot of fun.
Garou: For the SNK fans. Some cool characters, but some boring ones too, IMO. However, it is a relatively short roster, so it would be a breeze to make it through.
No Tekken, SC, VF, or DoA because judging from the votes last time, those 3D games just don’t stand a chance on a Capcom message board.
I left out smaller niche games like Last Blade and JoJo because only a handful of people are familiar with them, and there isn’t really much art out there for reference. The same could be said for Garou, but Garou got enough votes last time to deserve a second chance.
Votes will be accepted for two weeks from today. Happy voting
