These are now available online through the Hero Complex Gallery shop! You’ll find all three 14 by 20 images right here.
And hey, thanks for the kind words about these so far! If you said (or even thought) something nice about the series then this appreciation is being sent directly to you.
Okay cool! Happy Thursday, friends.
Knitting Inspiration - The Night Circus. Good fucking lord I loved that book. I actually read it several weeks ago (it took me less than two days), but made myself wait until after the holidays to do this post so as to provide you with a maximum of timely gift ideas. Although it’s pretty damn close to what I normally wear, with the weather so cold and dim I’m even more drawn to this palette than usual. Something about that little dash of red just makes the winter so much more magical.

I heart black and white!
I feel like TF2 really established great standard for character design and silhouette even though all the characters are super stylised they still look like real people, every detail feels unique even all their ears are different.
This kind of attention to detail seems pretty underappreciated outside of the fanbase in general.
Plus the amount of personality and expression that comes out of these characters is very self evident in all of the meet the shorts
my two favourites still being Meet the Demoman and Meet the Engineer
Just thought this would be a useful bit of information for young artists when it comes to overall character design, especially when designing a whole cast of unique characters.
DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON HOW BRILLIANT TF2 IS IN TERMS OF DESIGN. It is one of the best examples to show someone when teaching them about character design.
Like yeah…not only do they have unique noses, jaws, ears even…valve even took the extra step to give them each distinct teeth.
My character design teacher has brought up TF2, and the concept art by Moby Francke, a few times in class. For one Moby Francke was highly inspired by the great artist J.C. Lyendecker.
And many of the key components in designing the character is gesture, shape and silhouette, and just getting in great key components that create story telling.
This is one of the reasons I love TF2 so much because it makes me just…art fangasm all over it.
this so much. as an aspiring concept artist I get a giant art boner for tf2
here are some stickers for you to decorate/vandalize your surroundings and HOPEFULLY attract the attention of any robots in disguise that my be existing near you
(one of them has the Megas XLR theme encoded into it because i seriously couldn’t resist)
"…you love Ultron, Tony?”
(They said Avengers 2 will “have ultron” and “Natasha and Clint getting more action”, so these are my natural conclusions of what the movie will be like)
You know how some characters have white hair in the manga and you think it’s just like blonde or brunette, but then it turns out it’s pink?
I rest my case.
too kawaii to live, too sugoi to die
