FANART: The Eggbuster

Hey everyone! I had planned to alternate between digital and traditional pieces throughout the summer, but I just had to post this, as it’s already on Twitter–and it’s my first piece of fanart in a while!

Of course, this fanart is more obscure than the stuff I’ve done before. It’s of Austin from the YouTube channel The Eggbuster (formerly ThatOneShowFUN). He’s not the most popular YouTuber out there, but he’s really funny and I feel like he puts a lot of effort and heart into his work, so he’s one of my favorites. His most well-known show is called Eggbusters, which is ironically about confirming or busting glitches in video games, not Easter eggs–but if you’re more into Let’s Plays or streaming, he’s got those and more. I highly recommend checking him out if you need a peaceful, fun way to pass the time.

Funnily enough, I found out that he’d colored his hair back to brown shortly after finishing the picture… but I think I’ll just leave it. It looks pretty good, right?

FANART: Batkirby V Supermario

I’m short on time again; thankfully, I think this post explains itself.

The funny thing is, I haven’t even seen Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice yet. I know, I know, it’s been out since this March–and no, I’m not planning on seeing the R-rated cut that’s due for release sometime next month. Heck, I felt like I didn’t even need to see it after that second trailer (which pretty much revealed the entire plot). So there’s that bit of information.

Regardless, I did like the concept of the movie before the thousands of lackluster reviews came in. I had hoped it would be good, so I drew this depiction of the titular fight before said letdown. Unless you have a severe lack of pop culture knowledge, the image above should be pretty funny and/or cool (I hope…?). I’ve combined the all-American Superman with the heroic plumber Mario, and merged the dark and brooding Batman with the immensely similar character of Meta Knight (who is actually more like Zorro than anyone else… but I digress). It appears that they’re about to throw down, but you never know… perhaps their battle will instead lead to the formation of a Super Smash League or something.

I’m going to be gone until July 2nd at a church camp focusing on preparation for missionary service (see “3. Mormon“!). However, that doesn’t mean that you readers will be without content! Indeed, I’m about to write up the next post and set it for release on the 1st. I’ll then resume posting the sketches according to my regular schedule.
