However, on the DST world I have with my family, where we have a lot of people, the obsessive food collecting is useful. It's also nice to have a stack of jerky on hand when in the ruins, to manage health and sanity. Typically speaking, my ventures into the ruins go pretty smoothly, as long as I bring the jerky. 

Raspberry Milkshake presents: A summarised version of ruins spelunking.

Alright, if my calculations are correct, the ruins should be up there.

Wait, no, go west.

No, east.

Godammit I got lost and I've ran out of lightbulbs.

**** ITS A GLOWORM

-Kind of a shame we can't get Emmet or Ron Perlman on stand by so he could voice your quick gif.:wilson_ecstatic:

The gif flows nicely.

So, I have drawn some things I do want to post here

Oooh, so much stuff!

A few of my favorite things: 

Smooth animation is really.... a pain. Yours looks great! Wolfgang's hair is very floppy indeed. 

So many Wolfgang shenanigans too heh

Charlie

OOOOH Charlie! She seems so serene. Alas, poor Maxwell! To have suffered the wrath of the scanner.

My favorite is the Crawling Horror pouting on Webber's rock. 

Same.

Thanks! I'm surprised people think it looks good. I just see all the painful mistakes. 

Wolfgang is a really funny character, as I've been learning. In some ways, a little bit less indestructible than Wigfrid... I've had some close calls with the simplest things, or been down to 2-8 HP at times when I least expect it. 
I keep trying to play him like Wigfrid instead of going into 'Walani/Wes' mode because, I mean, 300 HP and armor, plus double damage, what is there to fear?
Decreasing hunger is to be feared. Also when he powers down the animation kinda stuns you.
The double damage, extra speed and 300 health is great, but it only lasts quite like that for a few seconds before, like any hunger rate, it starts to dwindle away along with his stomach.

Yeah. I wanted to capture her bright and cheery/innocent expression but also some realism, to make it believable. I feel satisfied except for her over-sized head... Why do I keep doing that? 
Oh well.   I still hope to finish Maxwell and hopefully the scanner will BEHAVE once I scan it again for him.

  1. I like the concept of characters encountering their triumphant halfs. Makes sense evil-Wolfgang would be a bully in contrast to the ray of sunshine Wolfgang.
  2. Another sweet moment between friends. Friendship probably raises sanity.:wilson_sneaky:
  3. Wigfrid is probably a bunyman's worst nightmare. The bunnymen are basically a vegan cult.

I like the concept too, hence me drawing it. 
There may be more evil-half meetings in the future.

I bet it does. Though, if gameplay-wise two characters could raise sanity merely by doing some activity merely initiated between the two of them, players would just spam it to farm sanity, so as of far, only pigs and bunnymen can offer sanity-raising friendship in a gameplay sense. It's sort of amusing.

Yeah.
I always thought of it more like some kind of religion - They say 'Unclean,' when attacking, a term more or less used/translated from old Hebrew and Hindu concepts. (It's not just a Jewish/Hebrew thing, the Hindus actually had a similar concept and even regarded very similar things as being 'unclean.' Many forms of meat were regarded as being 'unclean,' eating them would make you unclean and so would touching them, and such was seen as criminal or despicable depending on the circumstance. Looks like Bunnymen to me. )
I wonder if living close to the ruins, full of ancient guardians and forgotten 'deities,' might have influenced this 'culture/religion' they developed.

Reminds me of people's reactions of Pogs in Hamlet. The idea of a killer ballphin is hilarious and the cool colors adds to the moody and mysterious tone of the piece.

I wasn't really aiming for atmosphere or a moody feel, but I did want to experiment with 'Blue buoy light in hurricane season by the darkness of night' when I did this.

A very detailed comment that I never reacted to until now

Gah, why am I so bad at remembering to react to comments?

I found where Klei featured me by the way, Mines. Thanks for letting me know!

It's nice to see you try your technique on these two, I just think the drawing would've worked better if Maxwell's eyes were headed upward rather than inward. I'm guessing this was when William was slowly shirting to Maxwell?

I felt the pain too though.

....... The tragedy. 

I can feel it through Warly's unsuspecting smile, and his shocked face.

I finished Maxwell and I tried to get a better scan on both of them + darken the shading on Charlie a little so it shows up in the scanner... 

Looking good! So much effort in Maxwell's suit, and the angle is nicely done.

I was having trouble with his eyes and didn't exactly know what to do with them. I tried to ask family members for help, namely my mother, who is a very good artist, particularly with realism.   She didn't seem to think I had them wrong, though I felt something was off....

What do you mean by 'upward' vs 'inward' eyes? 
If no one is able to tell, his eyes are closed right now.

Wilson is up next. I don't think I can do just his face, I feel like it might be too normal. I'll try to do a little of his chest so I can make his hair fit anyway. 

I'm still up for suggestions on characters to try and draw this way, if anyone is wondering.

It was painful. 
You THOUGHT those ballphins were innocent, but nope...

If you go as Webber, I think they will treat you like any monster as usual and therein attack you.

Okay, that's my confusion. Those were  his eyelids. Sorry for missing out on that detail.:wilson_dorky:

WX meets a giant version of the bird from UP.:wilson_sneaky:

I've seen the files but your comic reminded me of the movie.

 

Not familiar with a movie called UP?
It sounds interesting, if it has a bird like this.

Yeah, I was really alarmed, indeed, but... Also, it's amazingly creative. Just seeing this thing, it hit me how intensely creative the world of Don't Starve is, storyline and all.

It's the one where the old man with the square head accidentally kidnaps the child by telling him to go under the deck until the magic bird comes.

OH. Yes, that one! I thought UP was an abbreviation, like Universal Pears or something.  I like that movie.
