Save us, Milla... by Zakeno Save us, Milla... by Zakeno
AW YEAH PSYCHONAUTS. <3333333!!! Thanks again *Ruvii for suggesting the game for me! I bought it used, with only the disc, no manual or jacket, for like $25. So I was suppppper skeptical before playing the game that I got my money's worth. BUT IT WAS WORTH EVERY CENT, FOR SURE, NO DOUBT. :heart:!!!! It's my new favorite game! 8D (I liked it even better than Oblivion, Bioshock, and Portal, my previous favorites. >U<) OH my god it's one of the only games able to make me laugh out loud more than once or twice, seriously a hilarious game, and also has the most diverse and yet solid cast of characters of any game I know. Every single character has such a distinct, perfect personality, it's impossible not to fall in love with ALL OF THEM DANGIT. >8U!!! <3333!!!

The only downside to the game was some of the gameplay itself, though it was TOTALLY fun. The only time I got really frustrated was on the last level OTL. The Meat Circus caused me much pain.
"NO NO DAMNIT GOD NO RAZ DON'T FALL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE CIRCUS TENT AUGH" "Ow! My face!" "SHHHITTTTTT"
Like every single part of the Meat Circus other than the final boss made me cry inside LOL. Especially that obstacle course. Jumping across the netting was like impossible fffffu. BUT I DID IT. LOL.

ANYWAY I HEREBY COMMAND YOU ALL TO GO BUY PSYCHONAUTS RIGHT NOWWWWW. It's on Steam for $10! Otherwise, you could snag it elsewhere for Xbox or PS2! :D I promise, it's a seriously great gaming experienceeee. (especially since the more people buy this game the more likely a publisher will pick up Psychonauts 2... just sayin'. <3) Here's one of my favorite reviews of Psychonauts, if ya want to hear it: [link]

Anyway.

I've been trying to figure out what I wanted to do for a fanart piece for like a week. ;_;! I JUST WANTED TO DRAW EVERYONE LOL. But Milla's my favorite character so I decided I'd draw her. But I wanted to draw Raz too since he's the main character and also a close second fav (although, arguably, every other character in the game is my second favorite. Aside from the exploding rats. Man I hate those guys.)

SSSSSSO. decided I'd draw a 'what if' scenario! 8'D Since my favorite part of the game was the secret room in Milla's mind with all the nightmares, I thought 'what if Raz was an idiot and found a way to open the door, releasing them?' SO THIS. Milla goes all MOMMA BEAR on the nightmares she couldn't face before in order to protect the foolish Razputin. 8D <3

AW YEAH.

Tried a new shading style for this, more cell-shady! 8D It was fun!

WOW I RAMBLE

OKAY

THAT'S ALL

LOVE YOU GUYS

My favorite thing about this picture is actually the scenario you came up with for it. It actually makes sense---Milla having to protect Raz from the Nightmares is in-character, and it has the sort of bonus of "redeeming" her of not saving the other kids, making the Nightmares' defeat symbolically perfect.

But anyway, about the actual art. ;-)

Milla seems a bit shorter than she is in the game, and Raz might be a bit taller too. Other than that the two of them are very well-done, especially if this is your first Psychonauts fanart. The thought of these two having to pose back-to-back (as opposed to a more conventional choice, like her and Sasha) in battle is both odd and cool.

There seem to be little spots of yellow on the outlines and randomly in the air, but perhaps those are supposed to be embers? I personally might have preferred a more distinct background, but the dark/fire you have here also fits very well.

Overall excellent idea and work!

First of all, I want to say, great work on the colors. :) They're vibrant and colorful. It stood out immidiatly, so good job on that. I also want to not that the backround is very complex and the fiery scheme makes the scenery very beautiuful. I like the yellow stripes on Raz's legs and Milla's hair to indicate light. Very nicely done. The little specks of fire also brings my attention tremendously. I like how you contructed Milla's face and the color of her eyes is also very vibrant and mixes perfectly with the backround. The only thing I can give to you is that the character's positions look a little awkward. But otherthan that, good job my friend! :D

I am going to be doing a Playthrough on my youtube channel [link] of Psychonauts starting soon and I feature deviantart work during the intro and outro of my videos and was seeking permission to use this image, you will get full credit of course and a link to your deviantart page! (if you want to see how it will be used you can see examples on my current playthroughs of The Walking Dead, Dead Space and Tomb Raider 2013) Thanks for your time!

LOL I loved Psychonauts without even playing it yet.

NOW I HAVE IT. I'm in the beginning of the Asylum after Linda drops me off. It's so much fun!

Okay okay enough about me.
About the picture, I find the "what if" concept very interesting and actually fitting to the game. Raz and Milla against Milla's nightmares would be quite an exciting battle.
The shading you used here is very nice, and the coloring is amazing. The poses are great too, really gets the feeling of battle.
And the background really shows the fire and the creepy nightmares about to attack our heros.
Job well done!

BUT AT LEAST RAZ LEARNED THE MEANING OF LOVE

THE FINAL BOSS MADE THE MEAT CIRCUS WORTH IT.
THAT... WAS SO EPIC. :iconitsbeautifulplz:
Yeah it was easy but in an epic way to forgive about the Meat Circus.
...
So when I die I'll MIGHT not haunt the level designer's family forever and curse them to die in deep water.

Hurr hurr yes he did learn it... The meaning of love that is. *giggles like an idiot*

Now I need to ask Raz something...
And that is...
FOR THE SEQUEL.

Apparently a LOT of people hate the meat circus haha. Wait, here's something I nabbed from the Double Fine FAQ... "What’s up with Meat Circus is that you’re a sissy. Sure, sure, invisibility is very important when Raz’s dad is trying to knock you off those tight ropes. And your shield will bounce the knife thrower’s blades right into those spinning target wheels. And also you can throw a confusion grenade at that bunny and then just go pick it up, instead of trying to grab it with Telekinesis. Those things are also true. But the main point I’m trying to make here is that first one, about you being a sissy." AND I HAD WISHED I HAD READ THAT BEFORE STRUGGLING FOR HOURS WITH THE FRIKKIN' BUNNY.

He learned several meanings of love.
3 of them.
:iconohohoplz:

and YES YES you've heard Tim Schafer and Double Fine WANT to make the sequel, right? They just need a publisher to pick it up... which is hard because it initially didn't sell well (although I think the popularity has picked up a LOT in the past years)

Yeah but I got through that part without being all Godzilla Rage on poor little Raz. xD
It was the Father's Acrobatics course that killed me.
That... Truly was insult to injury.
OH but the FINAL BATTLE... I was cheering "GO RAZ GO RAZ GO RAZ!!"

Hehehehehehe.

I KNOW.
Dang it, we need a publisher STAT.
Because that game... That game..

LOL that made me cry too.... but pretty much only the fire net... jumpy... horrid part. X_X!!! SO MUCH FALLING AND DROWNING. SOOOO MUCH. And for some reason I had a ton of difficulty fighting the Butcher and Raz's dad. >8C I couldn't get the flaming spikes aimed at the butcher right so it was just a major headache. STILL. BEAT IT. LOL.

yessss. ;u; Pffff RazxLili= NEW OTP. -adds to OTP list to stalk my sketchbook for the rest of eternity- <333
Although the 3rd meaning of love I was referring to was Sasha's unpleasant use of clairvoyance on his father. Awk-ward. 8I; poor Sasha

I KNOW RIGHTTTTT. ;O;!! I want to see Raz be able to be a psychic spy and be BADASS AND STUFF. AND SAVE THE DAY. AND GET THE GIRL. AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, HAVE MORE NONSENSICAL ADVENTURES INSIDE INSANE PEOPLE'S HEADS. Seriously though, the popularity of the game has picked up a TON recently. >8T SOME PUBLISHER SHOULD REALIZE THAT, THINK 'man! we should nab all of these fangirls/boys while they're still obsessy!' AND PICK THE SEQUEL UP

RIGHT NOW

OR I'LL BURN THEIR HOUSE DOWN, WITH THE LEMONS MILK.

HEEEHEEE THIS IS NEAT
Though I must say that this seems pretty flat to me. Like Raz/Milla are just there on top of a pretty background. That can be okay but it seems like you meant for them to be /in/ the nightmare environment so more indication of depth would probably go a long way.
I should probably do an actual crit someday but I only have so much of an attention span before a semi-serious comment devolves into my being an idiot

so on that note

I'M GLAD MY SUGGESTION WORKED OUT FOR YOU EEEEEEEEEEEE
though holy crap twenty five dollars for a game that's been around as long as this? used with no case or anything?
though i suppose there may not be many physical copies floating around anymore, especially considering how poorly it sold at first


But I really have no idea I never bothered to look lolSteam
