So how do you draw shirtless dudes accurately? I’m working on a thing that requires a lot of shirtless dudes, and whenever I try to draw in all the shirtless-dude-related muscles, it makes the shirtless dude look like a brick with lines.

And I know asking for realism in a style like mine is kind of weird, but I’m trying to find a line between realism and cartooniness.

Matoaka - Like Me [3]


So an epiphany struck: rather than draw like three pages of reaction shots of Dot and Matoaka in their dorm room (well, technically Dot and Hex’), I decided to do something fun and on the dynamic side, such as depicting battles between the two with them dressed as their characters. They haven’t been transported into the game or anything, I just didn’t want to be boring/draw characters that weren’t them.

Stuck with good ol’ fashioned paint bucket for coloring this time, then did a quick thing for the bottom set of panels just because. Went a lot faster, and I couldn’t keep it as straight-up black-and-white. Took about 3 hours to do, which is acceptable. Will hopefully have another one up tonight.

Matoaka - Like Me [2]

Like I said, all human characters in anything are Pokemorphs - in this case Little Mac is a Hitmonchan and Captain Falcon is a Blaziken. I haven’t really figured most of the roster out, but Game & Watch, ROB and the Kirby characters are identical to how they appear now while the Star Fox characters are Pokemorphs - Falco is a Swellow, Wolf is a Mightyena and Fox is a Vulpix.

So despite my best intentions to make Like Me a fast series I spent too much time coloring this. Leaving the background blank only saved so much time, so the next page will probably be straight-up black and white.

For context, though, Matoaka is floating with her telekinesis.

Matoaka - Like Me [1]

Okay, some wordbuilding stuff here: the world of Pokemorphs is almost note-for-note identical to our world save for the animals being replaced by Pokemon and the humans replaced by Pokemorphs. Video games like Left 4 Dead and Super Smash Bros. do exist in this world, just that anything human has been replaced appropriately. For example, Captain Falcon is a Blaziken, Wario is a Munchlax, etc. This isn’t an out-of-continuity story. And by the same token, the Pokemon in SSB appear just as they do in real-world Smash Bros, as animals instead of Pokemorphs.

Also I just found out that the Japanese get SSB4 in TEN DAYS HAHAHA MY PLAN WAS TO RIDE THIS OUT OVER THE NEXT MONTH BECAUSE I WANTED IT DONE BEFORE LAUNCH BUT GUESS WHAT

I GUESS DATA THINGIES IS TAKING ANOTHER BRIEF SABBATICAL SORRY EVERYBODY
