:’) thank you so much TK. i always liked your cool shotgun too
that’s the one with the crocs right
i’ve seen it
and i am so, so very fond of it. i still… i don’t even know where to begin
the ripped wet tshirt. the happy trail. the tiny shorts. the loOSE SOCKS THE CROCS WITH LITTLE SPURS COMING OUT THE BACK BECAUSE I GUESS SALVADOR MODIFIED THEM HIMSELF SO HE COULD HAVE COWBOY CROCS???
life is beautiful
things some of my favorite pairings have in common: having one participant who is at least partially non-human and is extremely baffled by human anatomy (and is unfamiliar with human customs. you know, like not shoving your hands down your boyfriend’s pants without warning.)
What is this, even
Y0u use this t0 repr0duce?
That’s weird. Y0u are weird
its been years and i still recoil a little every time i see mike krahulik’s influence crop up in my art (he is the artist for penny arcade, if you’re not familiar)
i loved the way he did this kind of weird cartoony expressive almost-caricature style that worked for joke stuff but also worked for more serious stuff when it was necessary so i used to ape that A Lot in my art for a very long time
it really sucks having an influential artistic idol and then he turns out to be a rape culture-perpetuating transphobic misogynist douchebag. ha ha ha
the downside to ice powers
alex on the other hand is fascinated and confused because he is a dumb virus baby who remembers jack shit about human anatomy. why are those things sticking through your shirt suddenly???
sometimes, i abruptly remember that there is a borderlands 2 skin with salvador wearing crocs. which means salvador wearing crocs is literally fucking canon
that is a decision that a team of professional game designers got together and made. that is a thing that happened. that was not some collective fever dream we all had
and i just… go very quiet, and i ponder the beauty and vastness of the universe. because what can you say to that. is there anything to say to that
stay tuned for upcoming fanmixes such as a cole macgrath fanmix that is entirely made up of songs such as “electric feel” “thunderstruck” “high voltage” “ride the lightning” “shock the monkey” and a zero/salvador mix that is just entirely dio songs
i could talk about it a lot if you let me because i thought WAY TOO HARD ABOUT IT but basically the fanmix was made to follow alex’s entire character arc in prototype 1, like
'blue lips' is his initial waking up naive, innocent and confused
'glittering cloud' and 'animal' cover the transition from scared baby who can't control his powers to uneasily starting to hide in crowds and figure out what he's doing
'virus' is all about the parasite
'the sinner in me' is kinda like… an alex and dana song mixed with hints of alex's growing cynicism/bitterness about himself and his past
'eyes on fire' is about the end boss fight
then ‘monster’ and ‘i don’t understand’ cover a hopelessness/seeing himself as inhuman that gradually turns into something a little more hopeful and open-ended
and the secret bonus track just. ties it all together nicely, i think
see. i think way too hard about these things. i just have too many fucking feelings about alex mercer
the fanmix art without the words on it. colors!!
i never really work big so i had to force myself to in this instance by taking my sketch and resizing it to 200% then lining it. it worked
