Attack on Hill Giant - Rollplay by Martin-Q Attack on Hill Giant - Rollplay by Martin-Q
This piece is a combination of two of my current loves - Attack on Titan funimation.com/attack-on-titan… and ItmeJP's Rollplay www.youtube.com/playlist?list=…. Go support either or even both of these great shows!

I'd heard bits about Attack on Titan a while back, but it wasn't until a few weeks ago that I finally got into it. After catching up on the FUNimation episodes, I saw that the setup (walled city under attack by titans) matched up a bit with the defense of Justar's Bay in Rollplay (the episode where the group helps fend off a hill giant/ogre force storming the town). I'm sure it's a coincidence or something, but the possibilities for the crossover/parody picture started forming. I did have an initial plan for having the entire group in the picture, but in the time it took to draw a slightly updated Vincent (Justar's Bay defense was after he got his black/silver armor, but before he got a better shield, if I recall correctly. The fancy sword is supposed to be Brightblade's Dying Wish, which I think Vincent had switched to over the blood drinker sword by this point.), I felt like having Abi, Banon, and Bregor as well would've taken forever.

It seems like there's a few Attack on Titan parodies around with this format, which is why I chose it: media.animevice.com/uploads/1/…. So it was just a matter of visualizing Vincent and the Hill Giant based roughly off of www.dotd.com/mm/MM00119.htm#8a…. After that, it was fun to draw this to the tune of the first Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) opening: www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jTHfd…. It's catchy and it gets you in the right mindset. Coming up with Vincent's black/silver armor and the Hill Giant's face made for fun lineart, the wall/gate was a decent background considering how much I hate drawing detailed surroundings, and the coloring/shading went okay. Overall, I like how this went as practice, since I haven't submitted anything in a while (I'm still trying to progress to "clean" lines, and coloring with the "painted" look seems to be a pain).

TL;DR Crossovers are fun - more of the things you love! Maybe I'll go for updating the main Rollplay group soon, although I'm also looking to try my take on a Lisa Burgath visualization. Thanks for checking this out, anybody who reads this far!
