This yes. "MOD" fanart?

In another thread, Tikibar Mgmt. requested for a new avatar so I was happy to oblige and made one:

To be honest, that was the first time I’ve made something in that style. I was pretty proud of myself even though some things could be corrected about it (GOOD GAWD! Look at those arms!)

So anyways, long story short, I liked how it looked so I decided I’d do the rest of the KYM mods in this style and maybe the staff members if I feel like it.

If I’m done with every mod (and staff member) and still feel like doing more pieces in this style, I might start doing commissions for you guys, but ONLY after I’m done, so no favors for now. Sorry, but I just don’t wanna be swamped with work.

So, without further ado, here’s Mod # 2 on the list: Tomberry

BONUS FACT: The title is a reference to this old epic thread. It was the first thread to accumulate 100 forum posts.

Ah Jostin, my chilly old friend. Might I take this opportunity to be the first to request one of your MSPaint masterpieces?

Do you only do mods? Because I would enjoy you making my picture as one of those.

I dillydally in paint. I am pretty good at making things.

For example.

@Bill

I didn’t really get it from anywhere. I kinda guessed it myself. It’s part of my study of clothing folds, you could say.

Also, awesome MS Paint drawing.

@Thread

Sorry guys, but I’m only taking commissions only after I’m done with all the mods AND if I’m actually still in the mood to make these pieces. Rest assured though that if both requirements are good to go, it’s gonna be first come, first serve.

So, without further ado, here’s Mod # 3: Mellow

It’s acceptable. My true love is Flash Animation… but it takes too long for me to care. I also enjoy photoshop over ms paint, but I never really draw in ps for whatever reason.

I’ve never actually drawn anything in Paint for the longest time. Too pixel-y for my taste. Photoshop is the way to go for me.

Yea, that’s why I kinda don’t like paint… but I’ve done some ok work in it. My PS work is so much better lol

Edit: also, lightning effects look FAR more amazing.

Wow, those look great.
Question, though. Are you doing these based on the mod’s IRL appearance (if you know what they look like) or their avatar? Do we get to pick?

Well, I’m basing these images on how the community usually perceives (or mostly perceived for the case of currently inactive members) the moderators. So, in the case of Captain Blubber and Tomberry, they’re both associated with known images of certain video game characters, so I used those as base images. On the other hand, everybody knows what Mellow looks like, so I used her IRL looks to portray her (dressing her in her known attire). Though, regarding some mods (such as yourself), there really isn’t a specific character or look your associated with. This being the case, sure you get to pick what you want to look like.

I think it’d be fun to draw interpretations of their usernames.

I see, I see. Yeah, I’m pretty amorphous here to most people. So could you draw me based on my IRL appearance, then?

How come I didn’t know about that until Jostin brought it up to my attention.
Karma love for everybody involved.

I’ll dump all of mine if someone wants me too… If someone wants me to do a portrait of them like last time, you can PM me your picture.

And so here, ladies and gents, we have our beloved yet missing-in-action user, Mod # 4: Blah-tan

Now, this isn’t really how I think Blah looks like in real life. This image instead is based on a mix of her older avatars, specifically one that depicts a moe anthropomorphization of one of the most classic FPS games, Counter Strike:

I chose to do this because Blah is one of the few mods who doesn’t really have any specific image attributed to her. The fact that she’s not often around, doesn’t help either, so I can’t do the alternative and ask her how she would like to be depicted in the pic.

So yeah, here she is. More mods to come soon!

He’ll probably freak out that I posted this, but here’s a Tristan.

Next up on the docket, Mod # 5: Watcher

ZOMG! FURRY ART! TROLOLOLOLOL! :V

Anyways, yeah, I used his fursona and whatnot and put him in front of the San Jose Fairmont Hotel. What more can I say?

Thanks to the dude himself, by the by, for actually helping me decide how to make this image.

On to Mod # 6!

Oh, snap! I didn’t realize I made no praise for Pterodactyl’s once again stellar artwork yet. How rude of me.

Again, an amazing job, Ptero-chan. I really love your style and Tristan looks as badass as ever. Also, your presence in this thread makes the whole “This yes. Mod fanart?” experience complete so thank you again.

Back from the 2-day hiatus, this thread comes back to provide Mod #6: Shadowfury

If you’re wondering, yes, this is an artistic interpretation of everyone’s favorite technological expert on KYM (dis-including Ellie, of course), Dayne Close aka Shadowfairy. Also, yes, he’s using and wearing Android-related products in front of an Apple store. Sue me.

This piece took me a while to make because the info I needed to complete this wasn’t provided immediately, so I’m truly sorry for the wait. I don’t blame Shadowfury though. He’s obviously as busy as ever moderating our beloved forums from trolls and internet backlash.

So, yeah. Mod 7’s art will be on its way momentarily.

EDIT: Cripes! I just realized I made the left hand smaller than the right hand. Sorry ’bout that, Shadowfury.

Um… this thread, perhaps? These pieces are actually my first attempts at using my new tablet, to be honest. I don’t have anything else except hand-drawn sketches of random stuff compiled from years of paper-wasting. :P

Aaahh, okay. Well, keep it up and eventually keep everything together someplace like DeviantArt or carbonmade or something! it’s a lot of fun to see your work grow when you keep it all together in one spot :DD

But really, Jostin, these are super cool. I wish I had drawing skills.

Well, since Blubbs was generous enough to make me one, I went ahead and made him one, too. I know I just posted it in his thread, but posting it here also, due to relevancy and need of bump because more people should totally do this.

Hey, guys. I’m sorry I haven’t created the next mod yet. I’m kinda stuck with the current one on my list and it doesn’t seem like this mod will be replying anytime soon regarding the message I sent them about this thread.

To make up for it though, I have thought up of the most amazing reference to the Robocop on a Unicorn meme – the best reference to any meme that I think I’ve ever thought of – and I decided that it was just too good of an idea to keep in my head or draw by hand.

So, without further ado, I present to you ROBOT UNICORN ON A COP!

Also, yes. That is Axe Cop carrying the Robot Unicorn.

Alright, Orivia. I’ve finally made a dA account just for these crazy art stuffs. Have fun looking at all 8 pieces I’ve made so far!

Awesome, the mod messaged me back. Now I can continue the series! I’ll probably have it up tomorrow afternoon.

’Til then, broskis!

Sorry, guys. Apparently, an unscheduled outdoor meal made this piece a little late.

Well, here it is anyways, my tardy next submission in the series, Mod # 7: Horseeater

First off, no, that is also not what the dude actually looks like. This is based on his current avatar (and scarily looks exactly like a substitute teacher at my school). The background is a reference to his old cheeseburger avatar and the concept is a literal translation of his name (as per his request).

Also, kudos to those of you who get the two meme references.

On to Mod # 8! Half way done!

Feb 19, 2011 at 10:39PM EST

And here we have Mod # 8: Frketson

So yeah, Mr. Awesome Aussie finally joins our fellow mods in this crazy fanart thread of utter lunacy. With his Cuban in his hand, he’s living the nightlife with no care for the world. Also, I bet he wishes he really had that shirt.

I also wanted to sneak Jack Black somewhere in the background but I realized I didn’t do that for Tomberry so it would be unfair of me to do so.

So yeah, the New Mods are on their way! ’Til then.

EDIT: I just realized I put him in the same pose as Shadowfury. lol, Unoriginality!

Sorry for the delay again, guys. This week is a busy week for me so I had little time to work on this next piece.

So, without further ado, here’s Mod # 9: Christopher the Pimp Abra

LONG FOREARM IS LONG

So yeah, first M.O.D. on the list is Pimp Abra with his pimp-ass pimpiness pimping the place up like a mothertrucker.

If this looks familiar to you, the reason for that is it’s based on some old fanart I made of the dude a couple of months ago:

Also, since he said that he lived there on his profile, that’s Cerulean City in the background (case you didn’t know).

So. yeah. Hopefully next week, we’ll get this ball rolling back to speed with the next mod.

’Til then!
