The Making of the raczilla and Flak tee!

Been a while since I've done a blog post, so I thought I'd do a special one. This is dedicated to Will (raczilla) and Stacey (Flak), both who have been doing an extraordinary job for the Epic Games Community. I wanted to do something for the both of them, and so I thought that a personalized tee would be great.

For the past few months, I had been working the project, telling myself, "Hey, what would rac and Flak look like if they were in a COG suit?" Slowly, one sketch at a time, I began to throw small ideas here and there, seeing how it would probably turn out. Here's a collage of some of the ideas I began to throw out:

 I first tried it out with colors, but I already disliked how it turned out with the markers to begin with. Then I tried to render the characters in my usual style; again, I started to hate how it turned out:

Since it was going on a t-shirt, I thought that a more graphic approach would work. Slowly, I worked, getting comments and crits so that I get everything to look 'raczilla and Flak' like.

And the final result:

Again, thanks for checking out this post. The Epic Community would not be how it is today if it were not for the both of them!
