PPG - A Test of Character by PetPetAngel PPG - A Test of Character by PetPetAngel

This is another one of those pics I was talking about! I've been working on this one for the last couple of days, I had to finish Ace and Billy and do detail work on Snake, so it was quite a project. There were 34 layers for this project, although in truth that means that were were originally over 100 because I compressed all the separate shadow/highlight layers until they were one. Wow!

I really do like this pic a lot---another work of *bradsgurl, if you couldn't have guessed that yourself---it's just a shame Grubber couldn't be in it. But geez, that guy is a pain to draw.

The whole pic came from the episode where all the Gangreen Gang get powers---Ace has power over ice, Arturo has super speed, Grubber has a sonic belch, Snake has elasticity and, well, um, Billy is a rock. No, but Billy is actually a favorite character of mine, literally just this huge, confused teddy bear. I always thought that his even being in the GGG was because people judged him wrongfully because of his size and the fact he's a cyclops. Poor thing.

Anyway, this took foreverrrrr~ Which is why the BG is nonexistent, because I'm a lazy teenager gosh darn it! Grubber was going to be in front of Big Billy, but he isn't in the pic and I didn't want it to be a mass of rock, so. But other than that, I'm really happy with how this pic came out, it was another attempt for me to try and CG using the pen tool instead of brushes (for a true cell shading look with clean, sharp lines).

As for the title, it's because you know, the Gangreen Gang is a gang of misfits looking to feel powerful, and when they get superpowers they still use them for evil. They could have changed the way Townsville saw them forever, but they didn't do that, they wreaked havoc on the city.

Hope you like it!

[Awesome job! I can tell you worked pretty hard on this. I've come to like the Gangreen Gang a bit. Yeah, they've been troublemakers, but it could've resulted partly from how others have treated them.]
