Hooked on BOI: Rebirth. Having a blast so far. But still, it's almost time for the second anniversary for my not-favorite fighting game of all time! (The title probably goes to Marvel Vs Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat or SSBB, in that order).
So yeah, I have nothing prepared for this, and I no longer think it neeeeds a yearly celebration. Not that I'll stop drawing All-Stars stuff, mind you. I'm in a good position with drawings and the like.
For the sake of controversy, let's say that I make some sort of list about my favorite All-Stars characters, and how much I like drawing them. For favorite, I mean how much I like the character's design, personality and how they fit in their universe, not how much I play them on PSASBR (but in case you're wondering, the ones I play the most are Emmett, Radec, Sackboy and Jak).
I did make the list (Microsoft Excel ftw), and I almost thought about posting it, but after some reasoning, I thought it might not be adequate to express it with numbers, since, looking at it, some numbers looked odd.
- I prefer Cole over Evil Cole as characters, but I prefer drawing Evil Cole to Cole. The reason I don't like ECole as much is because his reasons for being "evil" are absurd (he's more of an anti-hero, and not necessarily evil, depending on how you play). I mean, you obviously become evil by killing civilians, but why does he have to become particularly darker by attacking street performers? I dunno, and that's why, while I don't like him that much, I like to draw him more like that, for being an irrationally bad guy.
- I couldn't decide if I liked or disliked to draw Big Daddy and Radec, since they're harder thanthe average character, but satisfactory to have them drawn. Big Daddy in particular is a weakness of my style. But Little Sister? She's among my favorites to draw.
- Something similar happened to Kat, but for different reasons. I don't really know the character nor feel compelled to know more, and yet she's one that I draw most of the time. In part, it's because she's one of the most requested characters to draw, so I put her to please the audience. But this has also evolved in getting very weird drawing requests.
- Dante was just an oddball. I've only played one game of his, the controversial one that got so much hate. That Dante is as cool as he's a jerk. And I end up drawing him as some sort of butt monkey, but believe me, he's very fun to draw in this way. The controversy gives him so much potential.
So, my 5 favorite characters ended up being Ratchet, Daxter, Sackboy, Kratos and Sweet Tooth. And my 5 favorite characters to draw are Sweet Tooth, Sir Daniel Fortesque, Fat Princess, Toro and Dante. Special mention for Emmett Graves, whom I want to add in more drawings.
For the least favorite, there's Isaac (because I literally know nothing about him) and Sly Cooper (whom I love to draw, but I've only played the 4th game. His cockiness gets on my nerves), and the one I like drawing the least might be Drake and Cole. They look too... normal and average.
Anyhow, that does it for today. Have fun!
