KIRBOPHERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

And I know CZ-Backlash was next, but I needed info, got it, and was already near done with this piece, so figured I'd finish it.

This was paid for WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back at Otakon 2006. He more or less gave me free reign to do what I wanted with it so long as it involved two TTA characters. I tell you what, I had...still HAVE...a lot of ideas as to what I wanted to do. Two of which will see light one day, actually. But eventually settled on what I think is one of the best parts in TTA to date.

Should I really mark for spoilers? Ya'll shoulda seen by now.

The final scene between GameCrazed and Motherboard within the D-Bug's flames really impressed me, from the delivery given by both their voice actors, everyone's favorite Wise Mankey playing GameCrazed and Haushinka giving life to Motherboard, to the overall feeling of the scene. Most people may have gotten a feeling of incompletion from it, but I saw it as one of those "leave it to the imagination" endings that are usually seen in most other animes. The kind that leave you wondering, yet with some sort of completion as well.

Motherboard's hair was a touch difficult to really capture without the, as I like to affectionately call it, GLOWY GLOWY GLOWY GLOWY the animated model provides. And in all honesty, it kinda looks like she streaks it something fierce. I should prolly have left a bit more of the yellow portion, much like how it is on her character sheet. GameCrazed was suprisingly fun to color and I was really getting into it, but once I reached the legs and started to get confused as to where I thought the light was coming from (all around), it kinda derailed. :/

I had to RAPE Poser 4 to get the overall pose. Motherboard's positioning was the defining factor as to whether or not you'd see GC's feet and I originally hadn't sketched them out. He had different feet in both pieces this form of him were in, so I decided not to go with the Ninja Turtle feet and more along the lines of the shoe-like ones. Having to had added them in at the last minute, forgive their being crappy.

In the scene itself, they were just in some sort of purple void. I knew that wouldn't fly, so I added some flame like streaks, kind of as if the void itself were moving. I guess?

In closing, I rather like drawing Motherboard. So what if she's heavily influenced off of Serenade from Megaman Battle Network (in all honesty, there are a few noticeable changes. Hell, it's no different from the SR version of Lina Inverse).

I imagine after GC successfully reasoned Motherboard to save Terrain Of Magical Expertise, Motherboard then has her will to go on back, she is stronger than Dragon-Bug. She extinguished all of his purple flames, & she let GC be with his friends again. They might see each other again in Season 4-- CANCELLED!!!

Let's now start all over in Terrain Of Magical Expertise...

How was this not in my faves before? *rectifies*

I still consider this scene, as far as my voice acting career goes, one of my best. Even if I don't voice GC anymore, I'd like to think the ending speech delivered by me had SOME impact on TTA/TOME fans old and new.

it made a big impact on all of us, that ending scene was one of the most rememberable moments in TTA but also one of the saddest :'(

but either way you did an amazing job voicing GC for all those years, In fact I like the old voice actors like you, Mike Luckas(Alpha), Cheryl Davis(FlameGirl), Colin Zabeilski(Nailock), Dillon Martin(GameCrasher) and Santana Questa(Ruri) lot more than the new voice actors. 

its the same for the personalities of the characters, I like the old ones more then the new ones

I cried when I heard there was no season 4 but I did respect kirbs choice

I think I've gone on for long enough Sweating a little... but still you were AWESOME as GC, cudos my friend Thumbs Up

Oh god, I remember this scene...

*SPOILER ALERT!*

It really makes me mad knowing that even in DEATH (can a virus even die?), the D-Bug continues to haunt the TTA characters through motherboard.

I mean, I always knew this thing was evil, but the fact it was putting Motherboard through non-stop torture with all the taunts like "You are worthless" and "No one cares about you" and "You are weak." "The Net Kings see you as a tool and nothing more"...DANG!

Seriously, D-Bug deserves to be erased from existence, and he probably has.

PS: the taunts I listed may not be wholly accurate, but they give the general idea of what D-bug was doing to Motherboard.

I actually like how you can't see the floor, so you can see more of the actual characters.

Oh, and to answer Lime's question, I think they're floating.

LOOOOVE. IT.

The flame streaks were a great idea for the background, as they void they were in was supposed to be that of the D-Bug's fire. The details on GC's muscle structure and his hair look amazing, the color schemes for both of them are perfect, and Motherboard's tears came out really nice.

Couple little nitpicks: GC's feet look fine in the "floating" type of position, but the angle kind of makes his legs look fat. Also Motherboard's arm-guards are a little sloppy looking, and her hair looks like it's shorter than usual here, but I'm guessing the rest is supposed to be out of sight, over her back.

Other than those little things, LOVE how it came out, and it was well worth the wait. Can't wait to see what else you have in store, too :>

Ah, like I said, I had to fight with Poser for the entire angle, not to mention Hugo decided to pull it's random shut off trick just as I was finishing sketching the initial 'skeletons', too. JOYOUS. So I had to make with what I knew, which wasn't much. XD You won't see me doing this kind of wacky angle on my OWN yet, lemme tell you.

Everything and anything Motherboard, the armguards were done with about two minutes unknowingly left on the break I was on when I was inking her, as such, I stupidly rushed and forgot to fix them afterwards. Sorry, man. As for the hair, yeah, I know it's longer, but I figured that the rest of it would be, as you guessed, lying on her back nowhere in sight from the viewer. I think I did all right considering that I've not really worked with hair in such a flowing position and *rub head* it's not like I have any way of really studying the flow, know what I mean? 8D

But ey. I knew it would be good, but not perfect. I apologize for what brought the nitpicks on, but all the same am glad you like the final product.

I do indeed ;P

I don't mean to offend with the critique either, although when your deviations say "Critique not desired" I assume you don't have a problem with people who're doing it constructively instead of "OMFG DAT SUX LOLOLOL". Plus I'd rather elaborate furthur than "OMFG ITZ AWSUM" as well XD;

Yeah, I just put that up because some people mistake giving out helpful commentary and pointing out things that could have been better with a little more time and attention with tearing the living s**t out of every single aspect of the pic just for the sake of being retarded.

Like I joked that one night, if I ever don't turn "Critique not desired" on...

"He's enabled critique, GET HIM. Well, first of all it's anime and anime sucks. Second..."

9_9

I know you mean well, though. It's going to be hard to look at this pic without glaring at the armguards (to be fair, that happens with any errors I make. I actually forgot to shade GC's eyes), but I know you're just offering help.
