#2, or should I say version 2.1 of
*Re-updated : 8/7/2012*
Though I redid the edits from the first time, I made different mistakes when fixing it. I spent a bit of time working on working out a better version for Carla's cleavage. This time, I was able to get it right and avoid the pitfalls from the first and second time. Getting that part right was simple, but getting the image to fit was murder- Carla ended up bigger than Hippo, but after many trials and error, I found a way to get the scale between the two to work without compromising the quality of the art. I think I've done what I was meant to do with this, at last...
This is the definitive version of what [link]
was meant to be.I messed up on part of the request- he wanted me to draw his Punch-Out OC, Carla in her Title Defense attire along with TD King Hippo.
Getting the design part was fairly simple- I altered the lines I originally did for Carla to match her TD garb- To put it simply, I exposed the neck area and made the top piece a bit more form-fitting. Also, Carla wears a mask, with a greenish hue to her eyes. This pretty much goes along with her nickname, "Queen Hippo." In terms of personality, Carla in her standard attire is considered sweet, while her title defense counterpart is considered a bit wild. As for coloring, outside of making the outfit match more of Hippo's trunks, I found a darker kind of yellow for Carla's gloves, which worked out nicely. Looking at her, I'd have to be careful if I end up having to fight Carla.. she looks she could do some real damage...
I learned a bit from my last mess-up and found a way to splice the two separate images together without sacrificing picture quality. Correction and application of knowledge from past mistakes turned a flub into what this was meant to be. So,
, I hope you like this one.
I'll consider putting Hippo and TD Carla up as separate pics up at a later time.
