Inspired by MANvsGAME and his cast, along with Scott Pilgrim (the chiptunes make great energetic sketching music).
With the chiptunes MAN plays on his cast and Scott Pilgrim's Anamanaguchi soundtrack, it was pretty natural for me to mix the subjects. On top of that, MAN's cast has attracted the attention of several great musicians and indie game developers, and their silly/playfully mean interactions were easy to translate into "evil rivals."
Left to right: Danny Baranowsky (videogame music supermodel), Ezekiel III (loyal MAN companion), Brownie (devoted longtime viewer), the MAN himself, Tawny (MAN's better half), Martin (feline mentally-challenged son of MAN and Tawny), Chatia (Canadian Twitch admin), Kyle Pulver (indie game developer and MAN's fighting game rival), Rami Ismail and Jan Willem Nijman (Vlambeer indie game developer team with their flaming bear mascot), Edmund McMillen (amazing indie game developer/unstable person), and Souleye (AKA Magnus Pålsson, AKA freaking awesome music artist of multiple games and MAN's cast intro).
Honorable mention for C418 (musician of Minecraft fame and German eccentricity) and BigGiantCircles (musician of Mass Effect fame), all friends of the cast. I just ran out of space/time/energy.
Had a lot of fun trying to capture each person's personality with little details. <3 you all! I really wanted to get this out before I had to dive into taking on my issues (For example, I'm using a campus computer to finish submitting this - I was unable to get my laptop out after some family conflict). Hopefully I'll be back once I settle my living situation a bit more.
