I was messing around in Inkscape while listening to thunder and I had a sudden inspiration to make something noir. This was the result. The rain effect looks awesome when the particles are all animating, but obviously that’s lost in a still image. I don’t know what I want to do with this but it was fun to make and I really like the trenchcoat guy, although it’s hard to see detail from this far away.

I’m playing around with digital painting through MyPaint, and to help stop myself from being a perfectionist (he says as he retypes this sentence four times) I’m not allowed to undo any mistakes. I have to paint over them or just deal with it.

Rigel from Legacy. Inkscape.

I don’t like this one as much as the one I did for Vex, and I think it’s largely to do with the fact that I don’t really have a color scheme in mind for Rigel. I wanted to make him very pale – almost albino – because it’s an uncommon choice for big, macho warrior characters, but the colors for his armor and gun were chosen arbitrarily.

I actually think my favorite part of this image is the ammo cartridge for the weapon. It’s a “shockgun” (get it? shotgun? shock….eh…), which shoots bursts of chain lightning. I’ve wanted to use the idea in a game for quite some time, and now I have a setting that makes sense to feature them.
