Chibi Vertigo by FabianMonk Chibi Vertigo by FabianMonk
This is another collaboration with crazy Red J. He has this little project going, where people submit their character designs to him, and every month he'll chose one and "chibify" it, meaning he'll draw it in this sort of cute, chubbier version, and then it gets colored up by mad man Seed. The project seems to be on hold for a little while, but only until Red finds a new place where he can continue this, and I think he's planning on running it right here on DevArt, so be sure to check him out and see how that goes.
So for this month, he chose one of my characters, and just to prove how hardcore he is, he sent me the lines to the drawing so I could have my own go at coloring them. And to top it off, I hear Seed's version will actually be done on different lines alltogether than this, so we can all be excited as to how that turns out!

Pencils: Jon "Red J" Sommariva
Colors: Me (Monk)

The tools I used for this were, as always, Adobe Photoshop 7.0 and a Wacom Intuos 2.0

Nice work on this one again Monk.... I'm almost done with the "real" version...I can't wait to see what Seed cooks up with those lines....Your character was really alot of fun to draw. I would have to say I have ahd the most fun with yours and Stickmans character so far...

I'm really anxious as well! I've got this feeling I'll make that my new wallpaper as well.
Thanks again!

You know, I was thinking that I had completely omitted my cel shading, but it seems you'll be seeing more of that in the hopefully near future.

Well there's absolutely no denying that I've studied his way of coloring rather intensely, and it's starting to rub off. But I'm confident that if I just continue, I'll be finding my own distinct style soon enough. That just comes with time.

The mask part is intentional, as it doesn't really curve around his head, but you're completely right about the shoe. Damnit. Fooled again!
