Remember real dinosaurs? I don't mean that upright-walking bipedal garbage, I mean this. Giant iguanas are so much cooler than what palaeontologists have reduced dinosaurs to. Active lifestyles? As if they could possibly know that from JUST BONES. Sick of all the sensationalism in palaeontology.
- bow is nice aesthetically but a pain to pose. He can hardly even hold it like he’d be comfortable aiming.
- lanky limbs are offset by the Liefield-esque chest. A slimmer torso would have made a much more sprightly Protector
- Too little solid green; I’d rather have 3/4 of the trans green shells be solid green, with the one under the add-on solid. the trans green should be an accent, not the main color, imo
- still salty about using Bright Green over classic Dark Green
Protector of Water
- same as Protector of Jungle, slender limbs are offset by bulky body. it’s also noticeably gappy from the side
- weapon is better than Protector of Jungle’s in that its best pose is simple to achieve
- only one dark azure piece but assorted pieces in two different shades of trans blue? the color scheme is ridiculously at odds with what the mask suggests is the main color
- not enough yellow highlights to justify honking yellow turbines
Protector of Ice
- bulky body actually fits with bulky arms so no complaints there. makes for a bundled-up look
- arms are proportionate but difficult to pose
- i hate buzzsaws but that’s personal
- the stud shooter weapon is much less integrated compared to every other Protector. I wish they’d tried to make a bigger, more integrated weapon instead of this weak thing and a buzzsaw (which i hate)
- the silver feet are offputting. it would have been nice to see them in white, but barring that, both the Protector of Fire and Protector of Water have silver elsewhere on their bodies; either could have had silver feet instead in exchange for black feet on this one, which would have stood out less.
I recently joined a D&D campaign being run by a friend of mine due to start next week and have been enjoying setting up my character. Just today, I drew her, and I figured it would be entirely relevant to my BZP blogging habits to post the picture.
Her name is Hjördís Ermentrud. She is of a fictional race called the Darkrunners, who are basically humanoid Velociraptors. My friend was happy to inform me that they can be completely feathered, which I obviously ran with. Her coloration is based on that of a peregrine falcon, but with creative liberties taken to both add aesthetic appeal and make it easier to draw. The shading is iffy because i'm still getting the hang of shading, and the feet might be a little small, but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
Honestly, you can make this sound like some kind of crusade for justice all you want (I'm going to hope that some of how you worded it is just meant as hyperbole to make a point, though?), but it just comes across to me as being anti-fun and anti-imagination.
There's a time and a place for joke entries to place high in a contest (actually no there really isn't but w/e), but the first site-wide BZP contest is certainly not one of those times.
The first entry offended my eyes.
Well, this was probably in the bottom 3 comics I've read in my life. Didn't make much sense, and some things were hard to read because of the coloring and font style.
