Since this is (basically) my first legit post here on the forums, I figure I ought to give a little introduction!
I’m Lemur, a newbie to the GBX/BB forums, but a mega fan of the game!
Despite my disinterest in FPS-style games, I caught a glimpse of Battleborn’s trailer at a GameStop back in early 2016 and I was immediately SOLD on the amazing look, feel, and character designs of the game.
Alas, I never had any applicable consoles (including a PC decent enough to play it)… But, when I saw it go on sale for a mere $10 a couple months ago, I just couldn’t resist! Got the chance to play using a friend’s console, and fell in love just as much as I’d always expected!
Now, a month later, a fellow BB-loving pal & I tanned up to buy a PS4-- my first new console in nearly 15 years– all for the love of this game!!
As an artist, the natural first thing to do was to DRAW SOME HECKIN’ FANART, so I began hastily scribbling my favorite badass without using reference material! HO YEAH!
Thus, my first shoddy Shayne sketches came to be!!
(The top few of which are utter garbage & I was tempted to crop them out, but HEY, I figure someone might enjoy them? Who knows, haha!)
Valentines Day came up shortly after, and I wanted to do some celebratory V-day cards, but ended up only half-finishing a sketch of Shayne & Aurox before being swept back up in daily life.
(This one got a retweet from the Gearbox Twitter page – what an honor, for such a recent inductee to the fanbase!)
Most recently, I wanted to start a series of cutely-stylized, “chibi”-esque character renditions, and started the effort with Pendles!
This dude’s design is just so ridiculously cool; he inspired me from the start, but it was only after arduously collecting enough credits to unlock him that I really got into him as a character!
(Although, once again, I regret not adequately using references. DON’T LIVE BY MY EXAMPLE, KIDS.)
For the time being, this is all I have completed!!
Hopefully the chaos of life will settle soon & I’ll be able to draw lots more Badasses to share!
Until then, enjoy my goofy sketches, and I look forward to becoming a part of this rad little community!!
