Well I suppose I'll go ahead and post my stuff here.  This from some years ago honestly, back when I was still competing in art contests. 

These are all colored pencil works. 

First up, "Time Keepers" 

Then we have "Tools of the Trade"

And finally, "Finale"

Those are my highlights.  I have other bits of work I might share at some point.  Hope you like those :)

And my appologiest that these are photos (photos of high quality prints no less, if you didn't catch that in the first image :P) and not proper scans.  I have some scans but I don't have the files on hand and I would have to dig around.  And given the size I can't just scan them on any old scanner. 

Woah, now those are niice. The shines on the wrist watch are excellent! It looks like a real deal watch. The pocket watches and chain look really good as well.

The colors and details on the tools are great as well. The very slight shines on them naturally blend with the normal darker colors.

And that frenchhorn... It feels like I can reach out and pick it up. Looks very real and perfect.

 

Thanks for these addtions. They are very well done!!! D

 

Thanks Cloud :D

 

Let me tell you, with Time Keepers, that chain was the bane of my existence.  See, I'm a slow worker and I had that picture only about 50% done on the last official day to work on it (luckily, I also had the weekend I could work on it :P).  I worked 30 hours straight on that thing, from 12:00 noon on a Friday to 6:00pm Saturday and the last thing I worked on was that chain.  That chain has something like 100 links but the original cut before I cropped some of it out had probably over 150 links and about 30 or so in and I was ready to murder someone :P.  

The funny story with the other two is I planned not to repeat the Time Keepers mistake a second time so I picked out my subject and got the photos taken to work from only a couple months after the conclusion of the previous year's contest.  I also figured I go in and dominate both the polychromatic AND monochromatic categories.  I figured doubling the size of the photo (8.5x11) would be the perfect size.  Unfortunately, being the genius I was, I took doubled the length and height to 17x22.  It was a over a month into work before I realized I had actually quadrupled the picture.  But I had already perfected the ellipses and didn't want to start over...sooo there I was again on the very last day working until like 2:00AM.  Not nearly as bad, but obviously it shot my plan to enter both categories to pieces.  I finished the Tools of the Trade after the competition was over, but was still really happy with how it turned out.

Wow.. You put that much time into it? That is some real dedication. I don't think I'd be able to spend that much time on a piece. I'd get tired of it and produce a lesser piece. Though I've never attempted something like this before. I don't think I'd able to do this either x ) So really well done on your part.

That 2nd piece sounds brutal as well. I hate doing big pictures just because how much troublesome work it'll be to color or shade in parts. It kills my markers as well.

It's Voca time:

 

 

Bonus (Luigi vs King Boo): I have to apologize. I drew King Boo while being totally in the dark so I couldn't see exactly what was going on. That's why he looks much worse than Luigi.

Haha, those Vocaloid ones are cute! I bet Platters would like them, but he would like them more if they were Miku!!!

 

And that ghost is sooo good xD Better than Luigi!!

Heya, Cloud here with a new work to present. Some people may have seen these, but I'm putting these up for anyone who hasn't : D

This is a lil different from whatI usually do. This time it's a bit of sprite art! I've wanted to try it, and I've messed with it before as a kid. So I thought I'd try again, now with a bit more experience. Some of these are old, but works that are fairly recent. They're kinda edits and referenced from other games, but they were made dot-by-dot. So that's... something? Well, here they are.

The 4 eye set is from one of my characters in the style of Danganronpa, at least my attempt at the style. ( I did 4-5 versions and still wasn't satisfied )

The 2nd are vocaloids, Neru and Miku, in the style of 8-bit Mario. Perhaps not so great, I had a blast making them.

 

 

And for a bonus, here they are in animated form xD

Heya, Cloudy here again to post more art for today. It's more sprite art, haha. As some may know, Mario Maker got more costumes, including one from one of my current favorite manga, 'Nisekoi'. It got 2 stages even, featuring the 4 prominent girls of the manga. Unfortunately, it only brought one costume, and it's not my favorite, haha.  Saddened my favorite wasn't added, I thought they could have included her easy. I thought I could even do it, which resulted in these.

Not sure if they're up to snuff with the official things, but it was fun doing nonetheless. So yeah, here's sprites of my favorite heroine of the series, Kosaki Onodera. Also did 1 of her sister, Haru, just cuz I could x )

-Link VS Inklings. Splatoon hype.

-The Xenoblade X VS Splatoon thread. This was really fun to make, loved how it turned out :)

-The NX Fusion.

-Everytime there's a Patcher thread.

-When mods close a NX thread.

-Uncharted 5. The Mcburglery. After all, they did a promo campaign with Subway, why not McDonalds?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Yeah, I think they are all good. I really enjoy the edits of Splatoon, Michael Pach, and Nate. And those NX gifs... They crack me up xD

Taking Cloud's drawings, I added backgrounds to see which one to use as my sig. Played around with a few before coming to an agreement on which to use :p

 

Settled with this one!
