Something I been working on...

Well aside from only needing 1 more blog post to finish that quest dealing with blogging, this also works as a good excuse to show off a little project I have been working on relating to TF2.
 




It's finally done and for the most part I am satisfied with how they all turned out. Anyway, I hope you like.  I am considering going back and redoing Scout and Sniper and perhaps adjusting the medic just a tad.
 
If you would like to see any of them at a higher resolution you can check them out at my GB profile.

I'm just sick of the TF2 obsession all over the internet, it's been done, too many times before in fact. And the poster is just average, and for me average is lame.

Medic looks a tad... off.
 
Other than that, great work.

do you not understand anything
 
for me
 
average = lame
 
so obviously
 
lame = average
 
the forums just get more and more stupid everyday

They seem to stiff. I presume this is in illustrator with the pen tool, it looks like it anyways. Make sure to add a lot more points on your lines so you can manipulate them easier. Also, the characters look more like your own style and don't hold well to some features, like the Heavy and Soldier's facial hair.

They all look a "tad" off,but the art style is ok. 
You could have added the bat to the Scout,with a smug face,a seringe(wrong) to the medic,the booze bottle for the Demoman etc.I can't say I dig the art style.Try making a new one,and a bit more TF2-ish,not all happy and shit.

 Looks pretty sweet, I like how the Spy is half and half :P

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions guys.

Posted by MikkaQ

Well whatever, I like it, personally. Then again, I hated TF2, so I'm not tired from overexposure to it. Always liked the art style though.

The medic looks a bit fat-faced and far too happy given his in-game disposition. His happiness is more of a crazed doctor happiness, y'know? Devious or psychotic.
 
Other than that, I quite like it. Digging the Demoman's :awesome: face, and the Scout has a good "I'm better than you, pally" look going. Nicely done.

Moreover, I really dig what you did with the color palette (red and blue). Clever usage illustrating sides and the abilities of the spy. Well done.

Thanks and yeah, I totally agree with you and some of the others about the Medic.  I changed his expression a bit - he is now a lot more serious.  I was thinking 'oh, let's give him a maniacal "smile" first' but when I made him more serious looking it clicked for me and I like him a lot more now.
 
I know that this isn't perfect but this is one of my first 'serious' pieces of art I have done with vectors and I feel like I can only go up from here.

Heh, submit them as avatars to the tf2 contribution site while you're at it.
Couldn't hurt.

Posted by hungrynun

This reminds me of the Brady bunch. You can have the spy be alice and neutral gray.
 
I like it regardless.

Posted by LordXavierBritish

Why does the medic look like a chimp.

I agree, which is rare, with Jeffsekai on this one. Nail1080 you can fuck off. 
 
@Crono: Good job, looks cool.

Thanks for the support.  I don't mind if people don't like it but I don't see a reason to be a douche about it.

Somebody thinks their hot shit, huh?

?People are crazy? I think thats amazing! I love the tone of the whole thing-the happiness. I can understand why people may not like it and say its too different from the source material, but its your personal project. You are allowed to make it different-add your own touch. I think its very nice. The use of colours is great. I liked the shadowing a lot too. The Spy immediately jumped out at me and I was certainly pleased:) Keep it up bro. I'd love to see more.

Posted by Kowbrainz

I like them, although think the Sniper's glasses should be changed perhaps since their shading doesn't really fit in with the style of the rest.
Bit unfortunate you've been blessed with so many rude replies for this topic, though. :/

Love the medic

I really like this, well done man! I enjoy to see people showing off their creative side, inspires me to want to do something like this myself!

Hey thanks for all the inspiring words!  I am glad that you really like it.  Also, Spy jumps out at me too but I am biased because Spy is my favorite :)

I changed the Sniper a bit.  I was unsatisfied with how he looked once I finished the others - Sniper was one of my earliest additions to the project.  Check out the new version and see if you like the improvements!  Thanks for the support.@turbomonkey138 said:

I am glad someone does!  Well, I know a few others that like him how he is too... and I like him a lot now as well - originally he looked strung out.  Now I guess some think he looks ape-ish haha.

You should!  I would gladly take a look.

Ty, first off - but yeah, you can't please everyone and I am ok with that.  I think some people want more 'hardcore' and 'true to the original' (even though it is VERY playful style).  Thanks for enjoying.

Thank you.  It means a lot coming from a fellow GB member with a TF2 icon :)

Thanks, I want to do more (perhaps for a different game) but want to do a more serious tone next time around.  I like to experiment... but thank you for the support, I appreciate it.
