Since I've been having so many tests back to back (I've got my last AP test tomorrow and I have a certification test next week as well as SOLs and the SAT coming up), I've decided to put off animating any MAP parts or commission work until my last test is over (which is June 3rd, so 3 weeks from now). Doing this will ensure that I won't stress out working on them and then accidently make a finished product that I wouldn't be proud of. However, since I'm in an animation hiatus atm, I've been doing more fandom designs as well as Next Gen designs for VV, since I'm really hoping to release more content and even some of the NGs this summer!
Another thing I've been doing is making some fan characters, mainly for SnK and Smash Bros, though the other sections will get some eventually. Since I only have so many pairings (and I gave up on making some kids for certain bizzare crackships) I need to include some personal characters as well! I've got quite a couple of them, and I might even upload them before my actual Next Gens seeing as they aren't the children of canon characters and they wouldn't be spoiling much.
Since I've been making fan characters to fill up some slots and make things interesting, I got to thinking about fan Smash Bros characters. Since the game has so many different game series within it, there are so many different types of characters that I can make! Of course, this will require more research since for some I'll be making characters for series that I have little to no info on. I think it'd be cool to have more characters repping certain series if they haven't had many characters in the games themselves, even if they're only fanmade. These are the series that I have written down so far---
-Legend of Zelda
-Metal Gear Solid
-And Spyro, just because I might throw in some random games ;3c
Now, I might not make characters for all of these series, though they're all ideas atm. These are mostly games that have showed up in Smash Bros. before or are Nintendo owned series. As I mentioned with the Spyro part, I might add fan characters from games that aren't likely to ever appear in a future Smash game (if Sakurai even wants to make a new one, which I honestly hope he doesn't because the man needs a break--I love Smash Bros. but as a fellow creator I feel bad from all of the stress the series has put him under). Spyro was the only series that I saw in my video game collection that I'd look into adding to Venomverse, but I'll have to look through my house again and see what all I have before I start looking online.
That being said, if you are familiar with any of these games and can give me any tips or perhaps even ideas for making characters based off of the world for said game, I'd love to hear it! It would save me some time and it'll help out with making the actual character :> If you can suggest game titles or series that you personally enjoy (perhaps ones that aren't made by Nintendo) that you'd like to possibly see me make a character for, feel free to suggest those too!
Just wanted to mention this since I've been thinking about it all week, and I'm also trying to put off the nerves for tomorrows test quq
I already have 8 fan SnK kiddos made, and I have three fan Smash Bros. kids (since I ran out of time in Economics class to draw more). One is from the Kirby series, another is from Pikmin, and the last is from Kid Icarus!
