hello everone i came home from exams just earlier and found out the angry birds facebook is teasing a new bird out of nowhere (whos also referred to with they/them)??? so you may see them next week in this very thread i guess. and also ill be FREE FROM EXAMS then
creachers


yea


hal is in angry birds dream blast all of a sudden (he has never been in it so this is huge) so far only the avatar so this is some speculation
though i think the lower body will be more similar to the movie design than how i drew it. which was going from memory
EDIT!!!! well my prediction of being more similar to the movie design was correct


this convinced me that chuck was intended by nature itself to have a weird broken beak tip because this looks weird

edited an addition to one of the captions

yea hi i had a lot this week because i procrastinated as hell
as i said last week jo is indeed here but this was speculation based on one of the first teaser. i was wrong with some details and correct with others so thats something

actual design

discord was frickin pissing itself for like an hour or two or something that day and it was Not Great (i said on a forum "i decided to wait out the discord issues bc nothing sends and it just duplicates instead and without discord im turning into a cavewoman. thog want human communication"). so i drew a bunch of chucks



ok heres jo properly. and melody bc her sounsd are back again!!!! which took way too god dam long but whatever!!!


A DAY after the jo proper reveal i already speedran converting them into summer madness. lmao. still need to put them into my speculative biology au thing

i gave them eyelashes anyway

jo having a movie design also got me wonderin about a movie melody


NOT angry bird !!????? i randomly messed around with bryce 4 to make some stairs out of terrain mostly and overcomplicated it


but realised i could just use One terrain for the whole thing not Many terrains that keep not aligning

then up and made like a cool temple. sort of empty but hey





first actual drawing after exams, the darker pink looks kind of weird but i deliberately color picked something here. you can guess. happy pride month

heads up the first two images here are very saturated so take care not to get blasted with bright colors if youre sensitive to it

ALSO tux paint! https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachme...3835980517418/2023-06-11_17-01-43_sped_up.mp4 drawing process once again embed in discord


jo for speculative biology au now
they turn into an oval with the help of that ridiculous feathers cape and tposing
thuogh i feel like i should have made them lankier


thinking



updated the oc color thing i have for my own reference with noel

not as much art bc no drawing ideas but i do have variety
an alien planet which i also ANIMATED! well the clouds and water but whatever ! embed video in discord as usual https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachme...9643463261110383/another_alien_landscape3.mp4



butterfrog because ppl were talking about... cloudy with a chance of meatballs and this was a a thing in it and it made me think of a frog that is a butterFly ? so heres that one


realised i forgot to make jo in spore. not very satisfied with this though


s1 ep37 clash of corns


a creautre based on an old thing that was for testing textures + a bunch of creatures only using creepy & cute parts and paints


this awesome pic i foumd


drawn while watching a really really really long video so i had to do something to occupy myself after playing some lil games for a few hours to that vid


(bryce 4 render) sometimes you just gotta make a weird space worm



this is actually using 98 (i missed one Woops) spheres and 1 lattice on a path so i can adjust it and make it do different poses

this week has been a lot. and i haev a lot of things also
some whatevers *i mean dressed up maxis creatures



he is very small


coolio


recreated thing i made in feather family roblox game


i had an idea to hand draw a bunch of agnry bird sprites and yeah this didnt work as well as i hoped but some of the reds turned out good





https://perchance.org/incorrect-quote-generator again


trying to replicate the vibe of some 2000s pc games with 3d renders and failing ... the ground i just drew so it looks really bad


this is not matilda (its a redesign of that other one from hogs and kisses)


i had to cover up the eye that i barely notice but keeps bothering me




i dont do this often but more starbound mod updates! i added bunys . alongside other things. they are based on this from a comic


also yeah new character i made to test how the bunys work in the first place and also just see how the progression goes with stuff like the slingshot

going back to not matilda with a height/design comparison. i kind of bungled some of her design traits


Glipy


and this guy, technically i flipped hte body upside down so i made use of it for interesting patterns



another attempt at this but with rendered ground and yeah this still doesnt work. i need everything to be orthographic here

but if i try orthographic by literally just using one of the side view options and then rotating hte ground evverything gets all janky and i dont know how to do it with hte transparent map elements too


made a puppet thing in algodoo for my speculative biology au, and then drew over it to demonstrate leg flexibility



if anyone is interested i also have a big ol writeup about this whole thing. though itd probably be nonsense to the vast majority of people here as itd probably need angry birds knowledge and an interest in speculative biology.......... boy a whole thing that appeals to exclusively me !

a lot of bryce things, also i have a tumblr now !
as described in that speculative biology txt thing from last week htis is how bubbles works

i still havent figured out how bomb works

another underwater scene in bryce 4, with the caustics from a spore prototype (WaterBoy) and the fishf rom tuxpaint stamps


i didnt let it finish rendering so its pixely in places but some minor updates to the room thing. i fixed the shinys in windows making it look like theres multiple suns even though there isnt. yay


also a recreation of a cool random sky i got once but failed to save. you can tell the first image is old based on the small resolution



(voiced by deven mack)


looking at the bryce3d tag on tumblr really inspired me to start making some more abstract things


and i have also made a guy for another bryce thing........ so look forward to that. i will probably make it today so due to the weekly cutoff point you will probably only see it next week. oopsy




actually adore this guy so i had to draw it


EDIT: i lied. nobody liked this yet so i can edit this in

not a lot but most of it is angry birds summer madness stuff lmao
didnt like robin's skin from the angry birds minecraft dlc (it included a skin pack for just summer madness) so i did my own. also i changed her eyes a bit since that


decided heck it made neiderflyer too using the same skin as a base. easy. even gave him his little shaved hair things


and a comparison of the skins


coming up with ideas for a speculative biology thing, inspired by watching a bunch of curious archive videos. the fourth one is also technically a creature




i made the bug (its technically an air vehicle but shh) so it can fly above and also i made the gulls follow it technically so they start flying away from you if you get close to them https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachme...8/1129846138300813373/2023-07-15_21-44-29.mp4 (embed in discord or something as usual)

been watching angry birds bubble trouble too and its been giveing me Ideas. for summer madness ideas. typical


also reloaded added ice bird and its also been giveing me Ideas. for summer madness ideas. Typical

all doodles this week and largely angry birds at that
some with matilda


more angry bird speculative biology au things, with randos and then chuck tweaked


chuck is supposed to be proportioned more like a roadrunner though. hte tweaks were mostly getting rid of his orange back patternings it was kind of detracting him from his yellowness

a whole bunch of really abstract bug doodles bc i kind of wanna go to the bottom of Her entire design and just. redo it basically

(htats my angry bird oc in case anyone forgot)

a bunch of phone doodles when the power was out. first was drawn with my finger (hurts), the rest were drawn with my mouse which i connected to my phone



turns out tux paint feels way better to draw in than autodesk sketchbook

more random things
an outfit for screeble



more speculative biology au things


made a space stage save file to test something for my spore blog, decided might as well make an outfit for these


updated tux paint and messed around with a bunch of things, half of them in templates
i had to make them really tiny because of potential eyestrain, if your eyes are ok with it just click on em



creature guy


doesnt really go there but i plopped the player model from gonzagogl (a spore prototype) into a sky preset alongside a water plane. in bryce 4. i forgot to mention bryce 4


experimenting more with fractal terrain except it actually tried to make it work (its hard to make it work still and i dont think its worth it)


very self indulgent




embarrassing gamer shirt (very small)


drew both of them from memory instead of using any references, so i bungled robin a little oops (stella is largely fine though)

wait its saturday
i drew the yellow part on most of his feathers wrong oops


more experiments with bryce to make like... assets and stuff



and an attempt at a background thats kind of spore-like and it also turned out especially like old 3d renders


tried to make a unique ship for my dudes but i am. not good at anything that isn the creature editor




redrew an official image for a funny


i dont post much of what i do for my starbound mod but i do keep working on it, heres some paintings that edit existing vanilla paintings with angry birds references. the first one is referencing angry birds dream blast and the second one the angry birds movie


i did fix up the second one a bit since this, mostly the shading under terence

matilda

you may notice i. redid some things with the thread and also my username this week. this just reflects who i am now better thats it
also im not participating in scribble this year if anyone cares. with me being basically out of the community and also the fact that last years scribble also didnt go too well for me i decided that i dont think i should bother with something ill likely have no passion for
bug thing


i think i bungled her vibes but this is summer madness stella based on a realy funny stella movie render


matilda


I accidentally got back into rayman ....... anyway i got mad at rayman origins nymphs and had a brain blast on redesigning them as more creaturey. so this is the first one so far. id probably be able to come up with more interesting things with other nymphs, my idea is to make them based on the most prominient enemies/creatures of their respective world, so betilla here just gets rayman 1 things because all the jungle enemies are rayman 1 guys. which here just meant i get to mostly ignore her origins design entirely. lmao

i dont think this ddesign looks like .. raymany enough but the base is there for something anyway

i need drawing ideas
random bird doodles


rather empty so i could add more but i hope this is intriguing


experimenting with more rendering styles


this guy



cheeze


mostly just paint heckery combined with splitting each coolor into its own layer as i went along in paint.net and then i mesed around with it and made this in the econd image


the way i did these is i was holding my whole mouse in my hand and having my finger pressed on the sensor thingy that detects the mouse being moved. so it had erratic mostly horizontal movement. then by copying and pasting these as i went along i split each into its own layer, then randomized the colors (and made them darker) and set each layer to additive

a lot
bryce terrain tests


a 360 panorama render that came out of me just. messing around A Little. at first


it is called Onlooker


guy that took 2 hours


new random guy (randomed with that pascal program i made)




A small creature that spends its time sitting in the grass near a water source and wiggling its tail tip in the water to look like a worm, and it catches the fish it attracts with its mandibles. Its tail can regrow surprisingly well.


guy with a mouth that opens like an insect mouth but is not that. my mom was absolutely delighted by this thing



drew this while outside. so the tally failed bc i expected more dudes than there actually were like the day prior


skin of judge peckinpah (and cyrus) .. i feel like i could do better but egh



crappy perspective but who cares


a couple of au things with a terence nad stella redesign



beeper

a lot of just spore things
drawn on mobile real quick based off this exchange in a book


some creatures




i guess it goes here, another one of these mock ups of a game that will never exist bc these are fun to make


recreated the crashed spaceship from space stage with the help of the model

only major diff is i accidentally inverted the colors oops. like their mapping is accurate even they both have this spot on the bottom


next is steve who ended up kinda wonky. i had the pink trim thinner at one point but decided to make it not so just to cover up some of the texture at the top

and of course breaks outside the editor with the cylinder i stuck in the speaker so it actually faded to black


next is a recreation of these guys from the 2005 spore things and also the black cloud in the final game


thenn a concept of a grox species in starbound


i also spaced out the color references horribly, these are knot the grawx; insectrox or dronox; brish; yoyo; yaya; singwon; singtwee; wee greevil

exploting how strike weapons on limbs work


and then final recreationi s the sea monster

edited off this guy

this is a day early but heads up. apparently discord the piece of garbage website is going to remove image links being permanent on other sites so this is just going to break this entire dang thread and i dont feel like updating all the old links. and in this case i might just stop updating this entirely, idk what image host to use bc im not switching back to imgur after the whole thing that had
for the future though i started archiving each page https://web.archive.org/web/20230929090619/https://www.marioboards.com/threads/41274/ this may be annoying to go through but should hopefully work
Edit: i Want to continue archiving but archive.org decided to stop letting me back in at all so ill deal with pages 7 to 10 or so later

since ill archive this page again soon anyway i might as well link some images from dsicord for probably the last time. its not much im bad at having ideas
tildy


new guy animates surprisingly ok





i think i shouldnt have shadwd this at all but i like drawing more realistic things sometimes

edit 2: discord has been completely pissing itself the whole morning. simply just great timing

Could you just upload them as direct forum attachments going forward?
