No I haven't even played the game, yes I still decided it would be a good idea to draw the four main characters riding on top of chocobos. And yes, somewhere along the 10 hours mark, I decided it would be even better to add a fifth character... in a car!! With a full background on top. My friend said she would slap me if I added Ardyn, which I did, and now I'm waiting to get slapped. Thankfully we live an hour apart...
It started with a video of a dumb glitch of Ignis standing up on a chocobo, then I decided it would better to add the others on chocobos too. Then it had a huge empty spot at the top and I fell into the trashpit that is the Ardyn fandom, and he got added. Bonus point for forgetting the wipers of his awful car and a wiper breaking on my own car the next day... I actually started this on Valentine's day, and it got finished last Sunday? 28 hours of seeing chocobos, with a good two hours spent on figuring out how to draw a car. Not counting the time searching for textures and reference pictures, then getting sidetracked and you're now at the 20th page of a fan blog... But counting the lag of my poor computer as the original is 40 inches wide at 300dpi. Bomb 2.0 is a great computer, but it was struggling at the end.
My coworkers were also asking me how THE drawing was coming along, without knowing exactly what it was. Just that it was time consuming and involved chocobos. I don't think I'll redraw chocobos for a while, or anything feathery (sorry Lucifer drawing number 3). But drawing Ardyn, what could go wrong? Without the car, I value my own car and don't want it destroyed if I anger the Trash King again.
Also, list of things I never thought I would draw:
1. Dude in purple leopard shirt
2. Dude with flowery scarf
3. Pink car
