Animation - Lady Palutena
Ugh I've been working on this the last three days. I just HAD to pick a character so.... asymmetrical... haha. 

For my second animation ever, I gotta say, I'm pretty proud about how it turned out! I wanted to do more clipping layers on the lineart and I wanted to clean it up so it could be transparent... Buuuuut I'm not used to working on a project this long, aaaaand I was getting tired working on nothing but this for the last three days, aaaaand I got commissions to do aaaaand blah blah blah excuses.

Anyway I've never actually played Kid Icarus before. I'd love to some day... maybe next time it goes on sale in the 3ds marketplace! I love Lady Palutena. Her personality in SSB4 really stands out. I'm terrible at fighting with her, but she's a cool character. Spent hours getting the hidden dialogue with her and Pit when I got SSB4.

One other thing; I'm not sure how Lady Palutena can move like she can in the gif. With real physics she'd lean back and since nothing is holding the staff she'd just fall on her butt... Howeverrrr we'll say for the purposes of this gif she can defy the laws of physics because she's a goddess ;)
Animated - Princess Peach
So I decided today to learn how to animate in Photoshop. A nice 4-frame thing, I think I still have a lot to learn about how to get that transparency down, etc. But it's not bad for a first shot, if I do say myself!
Warm Up - Peach by Undead-Niklos
Warm Up - Peach
The word Peach looks weird. Peach peach peach. I need to go to sleep.

This started as a warmup for today but turned into it's own thing. I wanted to use that technique some artists use where you flip the picture horizontally every so often so your mind has a chance to see how completely asymmetrical the anatomy of your subject is. It definitely helped me realize how terrible I am at drawing faces at 3/4, haha.

Also I just got back from Ohayocon in Columbus, so I've been bombarded with intense concentrations of bright anime palettes all weekend and I wanted to see if I could convey something similar.

You can tell I ran out of steam part of the way through this lol. An expression sheet for wendy and abigail. Pokerfaced, smiling, and the last two need some more work but I'm never going to get around to it soooo whatever
Over the next couple of days I'll be overhauling my page quite a bit. 

Among some of the changes:

  • Posting a load of art I've been working on.
  • Adding folders for specific things in my gallery.
  • Moving MLP off the front page.
  • Changing the avatar.
  • Redoing the commission system. Make it a more passive thing.
  • Write up a more in depth journal entry about where I've been, what I'm doing, and where I'm going.
  • Editing group memberships.</span>
  • Finish up some old requests, commissions that are long overdue.
  • Etc etc

Are the 'Pinkie Says Goodnight' comics still on your page? If not, is there anywhere else I can find them?
Undead-Niklos Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2014
I have them tucked away in a folder here:…

if you're looking for newer ones I stopped drawing them earlier this year. My apologies!
