Blog Mad D > CAG signatures: Yukine edition

The first set of CAG signatures can be seen in this post . This one is for Yukine, who was one of the first to ask me to make a signature for him only having to go two months without a response. He originally wanted a Smash Brothers sandbag signature to represent his play style in the game but after drawing initial sketches of a sandbag with nun-chucks and a pile of dead Nintendo characters with a sandbag on top, I got a clue and played off his love for Mega Man. This is the (shortened) process that I go through when making these signatures.

color palette sampling

Colors were influenced from Mega Man sprite models, Yunkie's home town NBA team, Captain N's Mega Man and Astro Boy.

helmet and face variations

size and hand variations

Felt that the initial body size was appropriate and that this variation of Mega Man didn't need creepy gangly fingers.

outline versus none

Final variations, decided to go with out the line, feeling that the presentation was cleaner.

Added shadows and reflections to the final model. Experimented with objects as text to spell out Yunkie's name and then finally slapped on an easily removable signature that every selfish subconscious artist puts on their online illustrations and it is done.

Blog Mad D > Smash CAG signatures

Posted 24 December 2008

These are some of the signatures I have been making for the CAGs I play Smash Brothers with regularly. Just a small little Christmas present.

These all come from hand drawn sketches then taken into the computer to Illustrator.
