8th Birthday Submission - Mugen
« on: July 06, 2014, 06:53:51 pm »
First, I would like to thank the guild leader Bruticus and the Jade Reapers for giving the Guild Wars 2 community a chance at obtaining something that most could only dream of getting, a legendary. I wanted to give a little insight about his drawing and me.

Currently I'm a medical student who has not drawn in many years. I use to draw quite frequently and had a few jobs creating custom commissions. However, I stopped drawing for personal issues. When I saw that the Jade Reapers were holding a contest, I saw a chance to refresh my skills.

In the drawing there are three subjects. The guild leader Bruticus and two officers Xicer and Trixxy. Originally, I chose to draw the entire guild, but since I started quite late I lacked time. I apologize to all members of JD and to a few specifically--Farnes and Cupcake.

I really enjoyed learning about you all by reading your posts.You all seem like a fun group of people. And you all really try to make others feel like they are at home. I enjoyed the 'meanwhile in Croatia/South Africa' memes. Moreover, I enjoyed Cupcake's jubilant personality.  ;)

The drawing takes place in a desert-like field a little Dry Top-esque. However, I assure you this drawing was done prior the GW2 new release. The background quite difficult to arrange and I had numerous redrafted compositions. I tried to invoke some personality into the characters by their positioning. In addition, some things are intentionally left out in the drawing. If you have any questions just ask  ;D

There are not many GW1--> GW2 guilds that can boast such an anniversary. An upkeep of 8 years in a game is quite remarkable! Win or lose I had a fun time drawing this and I hope you guys like it. I apologize again for not being able to finish it as originally planned but I was very busy. And I wish all contestants good luck. Happy Birthday Jade Reapers! Huzzah to you all! And have a lovely summer.

I'm really pleased you guys liked it. Currently I'm doing other projects however I should have some time to finish it. I was wondering what positions did all the entries place in, since it's not listed on the Facebook page? ;D

Well, the Clay Quaggans playing music for JD were first, and your picture and the plague shared 2nd place.

Your drawing is absolutely amazing Mugen. The vibrant colours and the eye for detail. I would really like to see the complete idea you had.

By the way, should you ever consider doing a commission, please let me know. I would love to have one of your works hanging in our study!
