Jazz Jackrabbit by eru0iluvatar Jazz Jackrabbit by eru0iluvatar
whoa..
its been quite a while since ive submitted anything, i almost forgot how to.. -_-"

this is a fan art ive been wanting to make for quite sum time, "jazz jackrabbit".. :dance: one of my favourite games.. it's that simple 90s old-school platformer kind of game that never gets old.. this game brings so much memories.. AND i still have it on my PC..

i tried out a different shading style but im glad it turned out the way it did... the pose n angle were greatly inspired by =JayAxer 's (you should totally check out his page) art : [link]
it took more or less 10-13 hrs on CS3.. obviously a little too time consuming, but well, im still learning...
if ur wondering what that 'thing' is on the background, its supposed to be a turtle shell, as turtles are jazz's main enemy... (the game was a parody of "the tortoise and the hare")

Jazz, dangerous as always (especially for turtles) :)
Could also have some smoke coming from the tip of the gun.

:wow: Yeah, man, I got really impressed by your work!
I'm a real fan of Jazz & co. and I like to still play and create with it, find more info about, and of course searching for fans art through dA :D but really, I should watch with more care the next time... because i don't know why, the first time I've not seen this work, which is simply AWESOME. The use of color, the style of draw, the look (he... XD has a great pose) and so on... it's just awesome, and I'm going to add it with pleasure to my :+fav:s ;)

Well, well done really! ^^

Wow, very great job!

To be honest, when i saw the thumbnail i thought it was a real plastic figure. Then, i thought it was a 3d model.


Is this just digital art? You painted it yourself?

Amazing colors, truly. The angle, the depth, the colors.

If it only had a background, it would be perfect.

Ever thought of making it a wallpaper?

Anyways, nice job (:

Thankies mate. I am graciously humbled :hug:
Yes, this is a digital fan art I painted myself. I used a lot of reference for the colors and the angle (as I have written above) was inspired by one of the great artists here I found on deviantArt. But I was still getting used to digital painting during this time and the technique I used for this particular piece was real time consuming, so I don't think I'll be doing any more pictures in this style. =P

I see myself more of a character designer, so I'm not that big on backgrounds (though it's a skill I hope to sharpen someday =)).

I'd be happy to re size it to a wallpaper ratio size if you want...

Woah. That's real cool. Nice style you got there. :D When I saw this I though among the lines "Jazz Unleashed" - he's so bulky and hairy here. ;P

Oh, and there's some inconsistency - if you blurred out the shell in the background, shouldn't the writing be blurred even more?

Anyway, faving this, as it is a great fanart of the green hare.

thx for the comments and :+fav: mate..
i greatly appreciate it... =)

and for the inconsistency - i didnt intend the writing to be a graffiti sprayed on the background, its just the title.. it also serves to fill in the huge blank space above the shell.. :XD: i guess the drippiness effect gave it the impression of a graffiti, forgive me..

OH MY HELL, JAZZ. :heart:
This was my favorite game EVER when I was a kid! AAAH! :D Jazz was one of my first HEROES. When I was like... five. xD

Dammit. DAMMIT. Now I wanna play it again SO BADLY.

But! ANYWAY, ARTISTICALLY it's great too, I LIKE the shading style and yer anatomy/foreshortening is great. Love the drippiness of the text, and the shell is a wonderful touch! <3
