W. D. Gaster (Coda)
it's kind of difficult to walk around when you've been shattered across time and space

Crypt of the NecroDancer/UNDERTALE: Clone
I was trying to go for something more unsettling, further down the uncanny valley...

Clones are essentially enemies that look like your character, except with a different color scheme and eye coloration.
Loading...
Eshe, Beacon of Hope (Sundered Fanart Expanded)
This is essentially a print-sized, more detailed version of the artwork that I uploaded earlier; particularly because you can't see the dark hands as well in the smaller picture, but this version doesn't capture Eshe's details as well.

If you want to read about why I made this thing, here's the link to the painting: technemancer.deviantart.com/ar…  
Honestly, I'm just too lazy to copy-paste it.
Loading...
Eshe, Beacon of Hope (Sundered Resist Fanart)
This artwork is a tribute to a particularly interesting game that I enjoyed significantly: Sundered by Thunder Lotus. Most of the prominent reviews on this game state that it was boring and frustrating; while I can agree with them to a degree, I do believe that these somewhat frustrating game mechanics contribute to the overall narration of the story. 

I particularly liked the character of Eshe, a wanderer trapped in a strange eldritch world. One particular strength of Sundered was the element of permanent choice; similar to UNDERTALE's Pacifist, Genocide, and Neutral routes, Eshe's fate is determined by what she does with powerful artifacts known as Elder Shards, which corrupt her powers at the cost of her humanity. She can either choose to destroy the Shards and become the Beacon of Hope, or absorb them and become the Eldritch Goddess.

In this painting, I wanted to capture the essence of the Resist route, akin to the Pacifist or Good route. This is the second time I've attempted seriously at painting/pastelling/airbrushing an artwork. I tried to highlight certain elements that were essential to the game, such as the use of fire to destroy the Elder Shards, the malevolent Trapezohedron, and the dark hands that represent Eshe's shattered humanity.

Yeah, so I'd really recommend playing Sundered (it has awesome boss fights and art) just because it's really a unique game that has a lot of great elements.
Loading...
NecroDancer/UNDERTALE: Cadence (The Human)
For those of you who don't know, Cadence is the main character of the hit indie game, Crypt of the NecroDancer. Thus, when trying to character match Cadence to someone from UNDERTALE in a mod, naturally one would be inclined to also choose the main character, or the player. 

Here's the problem: Your character in UNDERTALE actually becomes different people depending on what you choose to do in the game: if you befriend everything in the Underground, you become Frisk, the pacifist; but if you choose to kill anything that stands in your way, you succumb to Chara, the First Human. I've already assigned both characters respectively to Crypt of the NecroDancer (Frisk to Dove, both are pacifists; Chara to Nocturna, both have wicked blades and bloodthirst). For now, however, the main character will just have to be...well, you. Either path takes you in drastically different directions, but from the start, you are just a human, trying to find your way home.

I've drawn two characters to represent your single person, which is symbolic of the different paths that the main character might take in UNDERTALE. Hopefully that explains that.

Also, just to clarify something. I'm not a weeb. Thank you.

Crypt of the Necrodancer/UNDERTALE: Bolt (Alphys?)
Just a bit of context before I explain myself, when people create mods of things, they essentially replace characters from the original game with characters from something else like a movie, game, or book. 

Before Crypt of the NecroDancer's AMPLIFIED DLC came out, Undyne from UNDERTALE was probably the best character match for Bolt because Bolt was the only character that had a spear. However, Bolt's name is something that is commonly associated with electricity, which is an element that Undyne doesn't seem to match up to. When the DLC introduced some more spear-bearing characters, I decided to match Bolt with Alphys instead, as they are both connected to the color yellow and are associated with electricity. 

In this painting in particular, I wanted to capture a more badass element of Alphys; oftentimes she is shown in UNDERTALE as being a rather shy, secluded character with a dark past to hide; the challenge for me was to transcribe these elements into a more humanoid form while maintaining essential elements of Alphys's physical character.

Yeah, so hopefully I've explained this pretty well...

I'm probably going to be uploading Cadence's bestiary artwork soon, be prepared for some main character banter.

UNDERTALE - Portrait of Chara (Take 3)
God, I hate drawing faces. 

When I was a younger artist, I would resort to drawing mostly non-humanoids and when I did try drawing something relatively human, I would make sure to obscure the face with as many paraphernalia as possible (masks, helmets, whatnot) so as to avoid realizing how bad I was at drawing them.

Try as I might, I wasn't able to find a style that I was able to connect with significantly. When I got older, I was able to step a little out of my comfort zone and make some highly unsatisfactory attempts at drawing human proportions, facial features, and coherent elements. However, with time, experience, and layer after digital layer of drawings erased because of personal dissatisfaction, I was able to finally find a means of improving my artwork while maintaining a relative level of tolerance for the accursed works of the past.

This is the third time I've attempted at a portrait of Chara from UNDERTALE. I've developed a rather unhealthy obsession for this particular character for the last while or so, probably because of the amount of lore surrounding their dark past, malevolent plans, and motives in the UNDERTALE narrative. I begin to notice now that I gradually became more comfortable with sporting facial features as I drew a character several times (1st time I basically ignored most facial features in a full-body portrait, nose/mouth was obstructed in 2nd portrait, 3rd portrait doesn't obstruct facial features at all). I guess it was all worth it in the name of progress; of the three renditions of Chara, I'm the most proud of this one yet.

Anyhow, if you were somehow able to read through all that feels-y bullcrap, thank you for your time. I appreciate it greatly.

As for my other art projects (necrodancer and whatnot), I'm just going to be starting some other tributary projects alongside it, so deviations might not be coming out every day for Absolute God of Hyperdance. Of course, this allows for me to work more on quality and style without a chronic deadline.

Daily Deviation: Blood Nightmare (Memoryhead)
Evidently, the memoryhead is a pain in the a** to draw, particularly because there's no real outline as to what the heck it's supposed to look like. Most of the time, however, it's depicted as a giant skull with a tail-like jawbone, with smaller faces embedded into it. I also tried to experiment with some particles this time (unsuccessfully) but it's still a decent interpretation of the memoryhead anyhow.

Tomorrow we'll see some more Endogeny art...
Loading...
Daily Deviation 08/20/17: Blademaster/Whimsalot
In this painting, I wanted to try to capture a more chivalrous, knightly aspect of the Whimsalot, an end-game enemy in UNDERTALE (it also helps me practice proportions + foreshortening as well)

I'm actually thinking of discontinuing pixel art uploads, just because you guys are going to be seeing them in-game all the time anyways.

Tomorrow's deviation will feature artwork for the Memoryhead from UNDERTALE.
Loading...
Daily Deviation: Black Skull (bestiary)
Most Crypt of the NecroDancer fans might not actually know about the ability to modify game elements, which is OK because it's pretty difficult anyways. I'm going to be doing so for an UNDERTALE mod, which will be released as soon as it's finished.

Here's some preview bestiary artwork for the Endogeny, replacing the Black Skull in the NecroDancer mod. 

Tomorrow's artwork will be for the whimsalot/blademaster.
Loading...
Daily Deviation: Black Skull (endogeny) sprites
Logically, when you encounter the Endogeny in the True Lab, it consists of a bunch of amalgamated dogs. In-game, the black skull explodes into a bunch of skeletons when hit. Thus, character matching concludes in the endogeny replacing the black skull.

Tomorrow's art will feature the bestiary artwork for the Endogeny.
Loading...
Daily Deviation: Black Skeleton Knight (Bestiary)
I was attempting for a slightly cutesier look than the original art for the black skeleton knight, particularly because of the nature of the Greater Dog. Honestly, it's kind of down-putting to see that bestiary entry art is mostly ignored (you only see it in the training menu) but I guess it allows for a more immersive experience anyhow.

This will be one of many character/monster artworks that are going to be included in the Crypt of the NecroDancer/UNDERTALE mod I'm going to be creating. I'm going to be uploading one piece of art every day, at least until I'm able to release it. Tomorrow's art will feature the spritework for the black skull that is found in Zone 5.
Loading...
ABSOLUTE GOD OF HYPERDANCE: Black Skeleton Knight
Today's daily deviation will feature some sprite art for the Greater Dog, who will be replacing the black skeleton knight in the Crypt of the NecroDancer/UNDERTALE mod I'm creating. I've presented a gif that places both animated sprites side-by-side, just to see how they'll look in-game.

Tomorrow's artwork will feature the full-blown bestiary artwork for this character.
Loading...
Daily Deviation: Black Skeleton (Bestiary)
To accompany yesterday's pixel art for the black dog, here's the full-sized bestiary entry. 

Some of you may have already noticed that the bestiary entries are strictly by alphabetical order. This is just to help me organize which pieces I've already uploaded to DeviantArt and which ones I haven't. 

Tomorrow's artwork will feature the black skeleton knight, or the Greater Dog.
Loading...
Daily Deviation: Black Skeleton pixel art
You actually see this character for a very short period of time in UNDERTALE. Remember when you defeat the Greater Dog and a small, cute puppy bursts out of the giant suit of armor? That's the monster in this pixelwork.

As I'm going to be creating a Crypt of the NecroDancer/UNDERTALE mod with this artwork, character matching is extremely important.

There's also a hierarchy of skeletonkind in Crypt of the NecroDancer anyways. At the top, is the skeleton knight. When the knight is killed, it becomes the shielded skeleton. When the shielded skeleton is then defeated, it becomes the mainstream skeleton. According to this order, the skeleton knight will then be replaced by the Greater Dog, followed by the shielded Lesser Dog, followed by just the dog.

Tomorrow, I'm going to be uploading the bestiary artwork for this little critter. Stay tuned!
Loading...
Daily Deviation: Black Sarcophagus (Bestiary)
Just a slightly more detailed rendition of the black sarcophagus, replaced by the Determination Star in my UNDERTALE/Crypt of the NecroDancer mod. It sort of makes sense, as the sarcophagus spawns monsters while the DT star brings the main character back to life (necromancy?) so their jobs are essentially the same. Thus, the monster souls represent the monsters being summoned by the intense determination.

Tomorrow, we're going to see some art for the black skeleton, or the dog from UNDERTALE.
Loading...
Daily Deviation: Black Sarcophagus pixel art
I'm going to be creating a mod for Crypt of the NecroDancer that's UNDERTALE-themed, and will feature relevant sounds, level elements, and characters. This artwork is just a side-by-side comparison between the black sarcophagus in-game, which spawns all sorts of black skeletons, and the Determination Star from UNDERTALE, which spawns monsters. (Also some artwork for Zone 4 level art featured in the background)

Tomorrow, we're going to see some art for the bestiary entry of the black sarcophagus, aka the Determination Star.
Loading...
Daily Deviation: Black Lich (Lich dog) Bestiary
Initially I wanted to do an action-based pose for this relatively fictional character (not in UNDERTALE or NecroDancer) but then the stupidest idea hit me. In Crypt of the NecroDancer, the lich's wand resembles a shriveled arm. Which means that it's technically an elongated bone. Dog+bone = cuteness ensues.

Tomorrow we're going to see some art for the sarcophagus, and some surprisingly good character matching skills.
Loading...
Daily Deviation: Black Lich (Lich dog) Pixel art
As you can tell by now, UNDERTALE doesn't have THAT many characters. 

With the lich, it was difficult to assign a character that would fit its traits and abilities. However, based on the fact that each zone in Crypt of the NecroDancer features a prominent skeleton-related monster, and since every other skeleton was replaced by dog-like UNDERTALE characters, I essentially slightly edited the lich so it would look more like a dog-like creature. Thus, there would still be dog-like monsters in Zone 4 (and consequently zone 5), even if they didn't exist in the UNDERTALE universe.

Hopefully that kind of makes sense.
Loading...
Daily Deviation: Black Bat / Whimsum (Bestiary)
Yesterday's art featured this little guy's pixel artwork, so why not post his full-blown artwork up today.

With this artwork, I wanted to focus less on the timid, shy nature of the Whimsum. Initially my idea was to have him looking up towards the light source, with arms outstretched as opposed to curled up. Hopefully I captured a different perspective of this relatively ignored UNDERTALE character (and made you feel like an asshole for killing them in-game).

This will be one of many entries to the Crypt of the NecroDancer/UNDERTALE bestiary in the mod I'm going to be finally creating! Tomorrow's work will feature some artwork for the Black Lich from Crypt of the NecroDancer, so stay tuned.

Yep, I'm actually just taking a while to sharpen some of my (somewhat inadequate) skills and reflect on past artwork. Sorry if I didn't put a notification up or something. Anyhow, I'm still working on mods and other projects at the same time, so there's really not much to worry about
