I personally still prefer the sharper nose on Brad to the more rounded one you've gone for in the newest Brad update, but the hairline and angle change are noticeable and are improvements to what I thought could not be improved. Don't worry about comparing yourself to Supernormal, as you're going for completely different design styles, and yours is much more true-to-Soejima and will take significantly longer as a result.

Great work man. Once you get a final version you should get a high res poster print mailed to them. It would go on the wall for sure.

probably the biggest gripe i have with both persona projects is that no one seems to have noticed that the original characters all have a gradient to their skin color

for example:

you can see that the bottom of her chin has a much darker skin tone than her forehead

But both are totally doing the gradient thing!

@Maajin: after examining very closely some of them kind of are but not at all to the extent that the originals are, maybe try kicking it up a notch?

You chose the best picture of Ryan. Bravo, this is fantastic.

x collaboration?

#158 Edited by Fobwashed (1619 posts) -

Had time to do a bit of body work for Brad. It's missing an American Eagle logo and I may move the pocket to the left some more. . . oh, and arms, he doesn't have arms yet. I'll get on that next time =) Oh, and I changed the lighting on him a bit but forgot to fix the shading on the ears. . . hopefully I'll catch it next time =P

@skyboost said:

Like I asked the other guy who did giant bomb x persona artwork, where can I see more of your work? You're really talented!

Umm. . . I'm on instagram under fobwashed and I used to putz with a deviantart page but lately, I haven't been doin much since I don't have the time -_-;;

@Brenderous said:

I think I like these ones better than those other ones from that other thread.

Thanks =P I think we're just workin in somewhat slightly different styles. I'm just trying to emulate someone else so I don't really have my own when it comes to this anime type stuff =)

I may go back to the angular nose as I haven't seen anything of Soejima's that are that curvy nose wise -_-;; Everything is always completely changable so we'll see =)

I'm sorta focusing on the main layout before I try too hard with the details of the coloring, but I'll definitely give gradients a harder look once I have the base down!

@Daiphyer said:

Lol. While coloring him, if I turn the hair off, he's got white hair and he looks like fucking Professor Light from Megaman. It's fantastic.

I don't think our styles really mesh well -_-;; I also think we're both busy as hell doin what we're doin to really do it but I'm open to suggestions.

Oh man, with all the hullabaloo about the other GB X P4 thread, I almost forgot about this one. That Brad with the shirt looks pretty rad.

#160 Posted by Video_Game_King (34594 posts) -

Why isn't getting any love?

#161 Posted by eroticfishcake (7780 posts) -

I'm surprised that the staff being drawn in the P4 art style hasn't happened earlier considering how much that game influenced the site. Anyway, just dropping in again to check it out. Looking good so far.

#162 Edited by Fobwashed (1619 posts) -

Here's a wall paper =P I'll work on the rest later -_-;;

That other one is amazing and he's puttin em out at an incredible clip! Thanks =)

He'll get love, just might take a bit longer ;-)

That was my thoughts exactly when I started. At this point, with the sheer amount of awesome SNS has put out, it looks like it's full. At this point, I'm only doing this as a break from other stuff and for good ol' fun rather than to fill an empty void =) It actually takes a lotta stress off my back feelin like I had to deliver~ I'm just now the icing on the cake!

#163 Posted by solus_impar (65 posts) -

@Fobwashed: Love the wallpaper. Nice work!

#164 Posted by ashogo (943 posts) -

This is really cool, Vinny and Brad are great.

Ryan's face kind of lost a bunch of detail after you coloured him though. His beard just kind of ate his mouth.

#165 Posted by AkIRA_22 (54 posts) -

That darker haired Vinnie is perfect, the sunnies make it. Patrick and Brad are cool too.

kind looks boondocks style to me not that thats a bad thing

I know right. in fact, i was getting into watching season 1(the only season i didnt watch) just now and while the music is playing i came across this thread. i think someone needs to make a video of these images with boondocks theme

#167 Posted by bmehlers (127 posts) -

Vinny and Brad look awesome, but Ryan looks like a 50 year old man/bulldog.

I noticed that a long time ago when I started coloring Hiimdaisy's comics for lulz. I ended up using my gradient for Rise's skin for most of the characters.

Here is the gradient information file. It may or may not contain the default gradients, so you may need to delete a redundant set and any other random gradients.

Thanks =) I'll have to get to the rest and then combine for the original stack look =P

Yea, he's not even remotely close to done. I put in more work in the mouth area, but then my comp crashed and I lost it so I just put up what I had at the moment which is a mouthless rough Ryan. Don't worry, he'll definitely have a mouth =P

@bmehlers said:

Ryan be a MAN and no longer a strapping young lad =P I'll see if I can tone it down a little bit but I'm not really trying to reverse age anyone here. . . Cept for maybe Vinny, he may be younger in that picture. . . Maybe I'll just update him to vinny now w/no beard. . . iono.

@TiE23: I'm sorta using different layers for every color and that let me use masks to individually gradient each element separately. I'll have to take a closer look into his coloring style later on to get it down better. Thanks for the heads up =)

#170 Posted by razielrioux (121 posts) -

@Fobwashed:Wow! Very accurate indeed!

#171 Posted by shermanatorek (114 posts) -

Brad looks like such a badass. #TeamBrad

#172 Posted by StarvingGamer (7557 posts) -

Haven't checked this thread out in a while, definitely looking much more Persona-y. There's still something about Vinny that I can't put my finger on but amazing work anyways.

#173 Posted by Phatmac (5686 posts) -

Loving the Brad Shoemaker wallpaper.

#174 Posted by OHNOgc (4 posts) -

Jeff looks pretty young in the sketch, but then again, he's never really aged.

#175 Posted by Namekaze_Minato (22 posts) -

Very nice!

#176 Posted by Namekaze_Minato (22 posts) -

Is it me or the fat guy looks like Tim Schafer of Double fine studios?

#177 Posted by Fobwashed (1619 posts) -

I've been hella busy lately with a bunch of things so I haven't had much spare time to continue this but I found a little today =P Jeff's redone with a what's up stance but he's real damn rough atm. I'm thinking about changing up the stance of the guys in the pic (obviously). I still haven't done anything w/Ryan's mouth. I'm reconsidering patrick's upwards stare because it doesn't fit the action ready type of stance the others have got so I'll prolly look into changin him entirely. . . Anyway, I think once I put some more time into his hair and shading on his face, it should start coming together a bit more. It's unfortunate that all the Soejima stuff I've found with adults are all like, either super adult/old or weird looking or teenage and younger. I feel like the crew is sorta in the middle of that so I'm taking some liberties but I'll do a few more passes to try to stick to his style.

Btw, I'm gonna have ryan just straight up looking to the left when I get around to him. Maybe.

#178 Posted by bushpusherr (714 posts) -

I know you are saying you still have a ways to go, but Jeff's resemblance is already much better than in the original sketch. Can't wait to see more!!!

#179 Posted by Szlifier (464 posts) -

Holy shit, that IS Jeff Gerstmann. Well done.

#180 Posted by Mcfart (1425 posts) -

Amazing. Ryan might still need some work, but spot on with the others! I don't even know what to say.

#181 Posted by EriMus (23 posts) -

Brad makes plaid look like a three piece suit.

#182 Posted by shermanatorek (114 posts) -

@Fobwashed: LOL, Jeff looks like he has a pig nose. Looks more like him though. Good job.

#183 Posted by JackSukeru (5816 posts) -

Oh, I haven't kept up with this but it's gotten tons better! I'm making that Team Brad pic my background immediately.

#184 Posted by AuthenticM (3672 posts) -

This is fucking awesome. Brad looks especially like... himself. Also can't wait to see the finished Ryan.

Continue the great job ! You should do both Dave and his Sister !

#185 Posted by pekoe212 (413 posts) -

This continues to be awesome. I love the art style and serious expressions on their faces - it really captures the Persona vibe.

#186 Posted by poheroe (154 posts) -

amazing job!!!

#187 Posted by Baillie (3953 posts) -

@Fobwashed: I visit this thread every time I come on GB, by far my favourite art I've seen on here. As long as you get this finished, I'm happy. Take as long as you need, you're a fantastic artist.

#188 Posted by Baillie (3953 posts) -

@Fobwashed: I'm feeling lost. I'm currently stocked up with a plentiful supply of rations. I will hopefully weather the incoming drought of non-existant updates. Until an update has been posted, I will continue to try and survive.

#189 Posted by kerse (2037 posts) -

Brad looks fantastic, the eyes are perfect.

#190 Posted by GodlyOne (127 posts) -

This goes without saying but fantastic job! I'm always so amazed when I see stuff like this from the community.

I just may end up using the closer cropped hair because he hasn't been long for a while. . . though Vinny hasn't had that facial hair in a long while neither. . .

@shermanatorek said:

Haha, first pass, and once stated, it cannot be unseen. I'll adjust it to be a little less pigish =P

Dave maybe, sister would be excessive. Though it would be nice to have a female in the mix. . .

Lol, sorry. I've seriously been swamped as of late with visitors staying at my place, crazy amount of work (like the Korean festival all weekend), game releases and top it off with some breakthroughs in the game I'm making leading to me wanting to spend more time coding than much anything else in my free time. I'll get back on these once things settle down a bit. I'll try my best to put an hour or two in this weekend =)

@kerse said:

Much thanks =) I'm still seriously considering changing up his nose to be a bit more angular even though he's got a rounded nose IRL. . . I feel like I'll end up going back and doing retouches on areas later on but until I get some more done on the others, I'll prob leave him be. Though, I REALLY want to just drop everything and whip up a persona because they seem like they'd be much funner to draw. For Brad, I was thinking since he dies so frequently in all the quicklooks he plays, maybe Death would be appropriate. Perhaps with a touch of Protoss. . . It's tempting. . . but I really need to finish up the others -______-;; Maybe supernormalstep will return with some persona's at some point so that I won't have to.

#192 Posted by Baillie (3953 posts) -

@Fobwashed: Hey, really there isn't any need for rush, I just think your art is fascinating. Easily the best artist I've seen on here, and I just want to see what you can do. I am still camped out though, and eager for updates! LOVE YOU MAN.

#193 Posted by Fobwashed (1619 posts) -

It's been quite some time since I revisited this one. I've on occasion been chippin away at makin some small edits here and there but haven't really had the time to just dump on it but I've had a few taps on the shoulder asking for an update so here's a little bit w/some changes to Jeff.

I'll prolly get to work on his body pretty soon as soon as I finish up w/the hair. I heard his nose was a bit too pig like so I toned it down somewhat. I tried to give him a little more age w/some more lines around the eyes and still need to shade the back part of his face so it's not so stand out. Also, I'll add the gradients to skin and whatnot once the full body is done as a last step so that'll be in eventually. He's also missing some back of neck hair. Anyway, Sorry for taking so long. I've got a whole bunch of stuff I'm working on and a lot of times, when I get the urge to do something quick, I'll knock that out rather than goin back to this one. Also, Supernormalstep did such a great job w/his Persona take on the GB crew that I sort of feel like the pressure is off on me getting this done quickly =)

#194 Posted by TooWalrus (12971 posts) -
@Fobwashed: Yeah, it's good stuff, take your time. The finished Brad is already great though, so you've already set a pretty high bar for yourself. 
#195 Posted by two_socks (210 posts) -

Sorry to be that guy, lol. I still love your work. You're a fantastic artist, and like I and others have said before, no rush. You're doing fantastic work.

#197 Posted by Mercanis (658 posts) -

While I like your interpretation of each member of the Giant Bomb crew, your Persona-fied Brad especially captures his Bradley-ness. Please re-visit this project some day and complete it!

#198 Posted by Baillie (3953 posts) -

@fobwashed One day Steve, one day this will be complete. I will hold out.
