Aww thank you! Yes, the actual picture is rather large. It should have a click through link, but if not, go to my blog and click on the “hi res” link in the top left corner of the picture : )
Haha thank you very much! Well, I can’t tell you too much, but I was approached by the individual heading the project and asked if I wanted to take part in working on the update. However, there was one catch. Since they had ran across my art so late in the project, I only had about 4-5 days to produce and submit a finished product.
Of course, after some muffled, high pitched squealing I happily agreed, pushed my midterms aside and tried to do the best work that I could with the time allotted to me : )
My somewhat rushed, last minute submission for the update! I am sincerely grateful for having been asked to participate in this community created update. Thank you all!
You can find the update and gallery here:http://www.teamfortress.com/roboticboogaloo/
Baww thank you!
Update’s Here guys!
When we first launched the Workshop back in 2011, we had no idea what the TF2 community was capable of. As the hats, beards, boots and hairdos started rolling in, we realized there was a huge well of creativity out there. But we didn’t appreciate just how deep those waters ran until the community-made updates started appearing. Now we’ve finally gotten to the point where we’re able to shine a well-deserved spotlight on your efforts, starting with the Robotic Boogaloo Update, which includes 57 new items—the most community items we’ve ever shipped at once. Currently the items are only available in RoboCrates, which will become rare drops after June 3rd.
This update is 100% created by the TF2 community. And when we say everything, we mean everything—the in-game content, the update hub website, the animated short, the comic, even the splash images in the Steam store. Even better, everything you created avoided the classic trap of using other companies’ intellectual property. (Those of you working on a Darth Vader Pyro mask, we’ve got some bad news for you.) Plus, in a first for the Team Fortress economy, all the creators of the Robotic Boogaloo Update have decided to share the revenue earned from the sale of RoboCrate Keys. That means that everyone involved will be profiting from this update, not just the people making hats.
This doesn’t mark the end of Valve-produced TF2 updates, by the way. As far as we’re concerned, there’s plenty of room for both to happily co-exist. We’re in uncharted territory here, and it’s exciting to be exploring it with you. Amazing work, everyone!
It’s TF2’s first Entirely Community-Created Update!
There’s so much info about this update I can’t fit it all into one post without it cluttering everything up, so here have a link so you guys can go and explore it yourself!
gosh I’m so EXCITED AAAAAH
SHIT HERE I WAS PLAYING MINECRAFT AND IM TOTALLY OBLIVIOUS TO THIS UPDATE AND I GET ON TUMBLR AND EVERYONE’S FLIPPING OUT AND IM MISSING IT
Hah! It’s finally here : )
It was a pleasure and honor to have been able to be a part of this, thank you Valve!
But I never left anon D:
Just finals taking up a good chunk of my time atm heh
For lack of anything better to post, here’s some spoovy requests/doodles from my last livestream. Somehow it turned into a running gag. But really, who’s surprised?
# original art
Started out doodling, trying to learn how to use small amounts of black to bring out certain areas of a picture. Ended up spending way too much time on something I had no intentions of doing anything with…idek lol.
Sorry it’s taken me so long to answer this, but I’m very honored that my work manages to inspire you! And I thoroughly enjoyed playing, so thank you everyone!
Still, I feel an artist shouldn’t be inspiring just on the level of their skill, but also on the level of their drive. It’s always awe-inspiring to view really great artwork, but visibly seeing the improvement of an artist makes your mind wonder, of where you might be in a year with your own art :)
Weather u okay?
Rushed this one a bit, but I am tired of seeing this floating around my desktop. So, without further adieu, more Oni Spy.
