Christopher Robin's Titanic Artz

Well it's not the 606 but I guess this is home now.
***/em picks up the pieces and starts over***


Already posted in another thread but I'm putting him here as he was one of my favorite heroes to play
and I have some new art of him in the works (a surprise collab) and this is one of my favorite
artz this is Christopher Robin A.K.A Brahn Fuhrnos my Fire/SuperStrength/Regen Tank.

The pencils...

and the digital colors.

It kinda does. I do miss my old NAWS (New Artz WIP's n Stuff) thread a lot. After three years, 100k pageviews and 1,632 posts I felt I had really built something worthwhile. I know it's just a collection of words and images but it was important to me and something I always looked forward to. I lost more than just the game the day NCSoft pulled the plug. :(
All of that said I can't help but feel hopeful with this new beginning.
Thanks Temperus.

Photoshop is the industry standard but @ $700 it is out of many peoples budget. Some good news though they sell PhotoShop Elements, which has about 80% of what PS has, for only $75 (I picked up a used copy for $30 online). Also Adobe is moving to a cloud-based service where you can rent the full creative suite for $30-$50 a month. Finally there are other lower cost alternatives like ArtRage, PaintShop Pro, PaintToolSAI and the newer Mischief and then there are completely free applications like GIMP, DA Muro and Paint.net. Lots of good choices for any budget.
You also might want to grab a tablet if you don't have one already.

Haven't tried it myself but I hear it's the most robust free option out there, good call KK. :)

It really depends on your

It really depends on your definitions of 'affordable'.

If your a student - you can get the full Adobe Creative Suite for about $20 a month, or just Photoshop for I think $14.95. Adobe also... has a deal where you can just get Photoshop CC and Lightroom if you're a photographer (seriously all it takes is you click on the link - and you get it at the price for Photography users) for $10 a month.

GIMP, is free of course - but it's not as full featured, and it last I checked still wasn't working with CMYK so for print not your best choice. Bottom line, it's got its pluses and people can get some great work out of it - but you kind of get what you pay for ;)

If you really want to be cheap ... Photoshop CS2 is ... actually available for free as a technicality - directly from Adobe as a download (with serial numbers and everything) ... https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/entitlement/index.cfm?e=cs2%5Fdownloads. It's meant for people who legitimately owned a copy of it ... since it's no longer 'supported'. Ethically speaking... you shouldn't download that unless you actually owned a copy. Which... does beg the question why they give you serial numbers for it... since if you owned a copy, you're have them wouldn't you? So -- take that information as you will. I won't say they're encouraging people to download it for free - but it does kind of seem that way. It is - also a 7 year old product. But frankly, I prefer it over say... a lot of the other free alternatives.

I do a lot of Graphic Design and mockups so ... for me, paying for the full Adobe CC thing at $70/month is worth it. It didn't used to be when it was like $6k but the monthly cost I can kick out and then I recoup it later (I deduct it from my taxes as a cost of doing side projects by doing a few jobs on MiNeeds for logos, UX/UI and such). With that I get Photoshop, Illustrator, AfterEffects and you can even do a bit of 3D texture and other art now with Photoshop CC, AE now has Cine4DLite in it - so if you are a student... $20 a month is very cheap for all that.

Autodesk Sketchbook Pro is actually free - for students, or $60 for everyone else and there are a lot of artists which make use of this. It's - to me - pretty awesome when used with a tablet or sketchpad like Waacoms. Annd... speaking of them...

A Bamboo (new - nonebay) is around $100.

Great info Mike! I know there

Great info Mike! I know there are some other artists from the 606 who bought off brand (non wacom) tablets they were happy with as well, if any care to chime in with their experiences, from $15-$50. They didn't have a thousand levels of pressure sensitivity but then not everyone needs that starting out. :)

More artz!


This collab was a pleasant surprise. I posted a birthday sketch last year of Caemgen's hero the Fenian to DA.
It caught the eye of an artist named Gemma in England who asked if she could use it for color practice.
I really liked the job she did and so asked if she would mind my punching it up a bit further.
Here is an animation showing the stages of our combined work. Enjoy!

Stage1: My pencil drawing.
Stage2: Gemma colors over the top of my lines.
Stage3: I paint on top of Gemma's coloring to add my own touches to the colors.

That reminds me I should start a collab thread over here as well! :)

Speaking of tablets (since you asked ;) ) I have a Genius PenTab i608x. It has issues, but at 40 bux from Frys I couldn't argue with the price. It works pretty well, but then I'm not a professional by any stretch of the imagination. For a nublet like me it's perfect. Cheap, comes with a mouse, stylus and 4 extra nibs.

You're welcome Catherine, quite a helpful group.

A birthday present I just completed a few days ago for Sapphic Neko of her eponymous hero.
The cute anime style is one of the most challenging for me so I try to revisit
this picture every year or two to see how far I've come along.

Oh you mean this? http://fav.me/d5jtb8z

Thanks Revolution. Yeah that was a crazy weekend. I gave away 16 billion +
in influence and nearly 7 billion in items out of my own pocket and also several
thousands of real dollars worth of art (which was donated by the artists themselves).

I felt the game community (and the art forums in particular) deserved
a better send off then we were getting and I had been doing
mini contests for years in-game and for the last 3 years
on the forums so I thought why not one huge
contest to bring it all to a close?

I was up all hours of the morning coming up with all those events and puzzles and coordinating everything (the maximum number of PMs you could receive on the CoH forums is 2,000 if anyone was curious) but it all came together and the events went off with barely a hitch (thanks to a lot of help from Darth Delicious) and there were a lot of people who told me it helped make the games fate a little less sad so it was all worth it. I've gotten so much from the game over the years... that was my way of giving something back.

Sup H3nRi! Actually your picture isn't showing at the moment
but I watch your DA and remember you were thinking of that as a new name (I'm still
gonna call you some variation of Henri though cuz there can be only one CR! *cue highlander music* ).
This forum is new enough it still squeaks and glitches happen from time to time.
(Sidenote: when are they going to get pageviews up and running???)

Then we shall go forth! Our shields interlocked

...yeah that works too I guess. Ahem.

If you mean in-game yeah I plan to go right back to hosting contests along Atlas(Phoenix?) Plaza platform
as soon as I can generate some influence($?) to give away (being a rare items marketeer
for many years I was fricken loaded in CoH!).


If you mean contests on the forums for art prizes well that depends on how soon
we get something like a costume creator(avatar builder?) to play with.

Update: Didn't wait for the AB... the contests have begun! :)

I haven't done any Birthday Artz in a while and I don't think I ever did one

I went without the rectangle frame glasses she wears in some images but
I may add them in later if Dee says they are critical (like she can't see without them).

About 1 ¾ hours of pencil work and another
20 or so minutes in Photoshop tweaking.

They are quick and fun ways to get variation and contrast but they can mess with the colors sometimes.

Heh yep. I wonder if there will ever come a time when no one
remembers what a piece of paper or a pencil was?


Jenny: "So wait they took this stuff made from trees that had black stuff in the center and rubbed that black
stuff onto thin white thingies also made from trees and they thought that was art back then?"

Thanks guys (and kitteh), I probably should say that it's another birthday artz, this time of Celtic Bolt.
I've wanted to draw him for some time and went with a blend of the classic CB with an updated
jacket and mask. He also is sporting a bit of grey at the temples of late.


Billy is currently working on a full fledged comic and the newest iteration of
CB now wears shades instead of a mask, he has a sidekick/daughter (Redshift) as well.

They are quick and fun ways to get variation and contrast but they can mess with the colors sometimes. Heh yep. I wonder if there will ever come a time when no one
remembers what a piece of paper or a pencil was?
Jenny: "So wait they took this stuff made from trees that had black stuff in the center and rubbed that black
stuff onto thin white thingies also made from trees and they thought that was art back then?"
Me:"Well yeah but way more awesome than you are making it sound!" "...yes Billy?"
Billy: "What's a tree?"
Me: *facepalm*

Consider the following bizarre thoughts:
In my life time and possibly yours they stopped ...

  • making gum erasers out of actual gum... and then stopped making other erasers out of rubber trees.
  • making velum paper from ... 'organic / biological' material - it's plastic. So is 'parchment'.
  • Using carbon paper for making copies.

And if you actually do remember any of that ... you may begin sobbing now...

I've been posting so much in

I've been posting so much in the collab thread I've hardly done anything for my own here.
Until I can complete one of my larger projects here is something quick and silly to tide ye over.

Got more than a few fans of the Kirby lines Bobby did for the three way collab prize art won by TDP.
A couple on a different forum wanted more Kirby artz but since it wasn't me who drew it (I only
did flat colors) and it's not a style I know I pointed them to Bobby's DA and new blog.


That said, I thought I would try and give them a little bit of Kirby anyway...



Yep, uh huh, I went there.

Alas I never got any messages CR, not on DA or my blog... which you would have to comment on individual pieces in order to ask me...

Probably here in PMs would be better to ask, if at all.

now and mocking up a pose/body for him. Progress so far.

I just love the way you work with wrinkles! You add them and the dude instantly becomes older than what the heroes (or villains) are usually drawn in. How he becomes more mature with just a few lines.
Oh.. lol! It justt occured to me.. he kind of looks like Spike... the vamp from Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

Looking back retrospectively it reminds me more of Brian Fury minus his
severe widow's peak but then I've only ever seen one episode of Buffy
(the musical one) but have spent many many hours parting the
brave yet foolhardy from their quarters on Tekken.

Neither resemblance was intended but
both are kinda cool anyway.

It's from "Saturdays with Streaky" #67, then I did a bit of MS Paint magic on it (no lightning bolt on Streaky's side) and cropped it so Supergirl didn't show up.

I know technically this is a reduction in orangeness (and therefore overall
awesomeness) but I think I can make an exception in this case.

It suits you. (pun intended)

Thanks LG. The color changes and reshaping were fairly simple, the trickiest
part was all the tiny little stars but having a good star pattern already cut out from
Fighting Patriot's design helped. It was just a matter of resizing, coloring and placing them.

So I posted above the birthday gift I made for Dee (the other one)


and shortly after I did she came back and added her colors to it which I hadn't posted here yet.
Looking through the thread I have some other stuff to update and some new stuff in the works coming soon.™

So here then is her colors on my lines, yet another collab.

Thanks WP. Deegar really gets the credit here though, her colors really brought it to life.

A doubling of Dee's you say Fireheart?

Forum bug I think. Or perhaps a new "feature."
The last 5 or so times I've posted it's done that whenever I make a correction or add a link. I've been deleting
them as they happen but this one must've triple posted cuz I got rid of one extra and
it seems there is still a duplicate. It never used to do that.

So here is something new that I just started working on.
I have another triple collab going with DD and CatiC (the same two I worked on Mystique with)
But Cati was having a bit of artblock and I hadn't posted anything (other than a T-Rex sketch) in a while
so we gave each other homework assignments I gave Cati a very "familiar" face from the forums
to draw and she gave me... I guess you could call them a "former" human.
Here is stage one.

Yay for homework! . I told her on FB that when I had an artblock I turned to collabs to get my mind of things and to be able to focus on "just" one thing instead of a whole drawing. It slowly got me out of the block until I was ready to start a project on my own again .
I can't wait to see further progress of both your assignments! . This is looking promising already
