The Yogscast! A Bright and Early Morning by MidnightSoiree The Yogscast! A Bright and Early Morning by MidnightSoiree
My computer overheated! >.<

I have been working on this piece for about a full week now, and I just finished the picture yesterday. I was making some last minute adjustments to the .png and suddenly, my screen went black and my computer shut off! I tried to turn it on a few times, and it would run for about three seconds and then turn off again.

My stomache dropped. I hadn't backed up the file yet, and my computer wasn't turning on. Not good.

I reached for the bottom of the computer and touched the underside. It was very, very hot to the touch. I was sure I fried it because I could smell that weird electronic smell. I went pale as the thoughts raced through my head; "I hope I didn't just lose that picture!!" I waited an hour or so before attempting to turn it on again. THANKFULLY it turned on, and I was able to retrieve this file and back it up in several places. Disaster averted! But let me tell you - that was probably the most scared I've been in a long, long time.

So, I'd like to present to you my piece that I've entered in the Yogscast Fan Art Competition - "The Yogscast! - A Bright and Early Morning!" I'm a little sad, because this is probably the last of my Yogscast groups shots for a while. It's hard to believe that I posted the first one exactly a month ago yesterday. This is what a months worth of progress looks like, guys.

I tried my hardest with this picture. There were several characters that I had to re-draw. I decided to be smart and draw Lewis's character first, because he's typically the hardest to draw, but halfway through the picture, everyone else was looking better than he was so I re-drew him anyway. Same goes for Hannah's character and Rythian.

I've added a few easter-eggy elements to this illustration, so try to find them all! The only one I'll give away is the cat sitting on Sjins' shoulder. It's the one called 'Jack' that he occassionally mentions in his videos. He's wearing the same space outfit as Sjin! <3

All in all, this was a fun piece to create. It was a lot, lot lot of hard work, and several times I wanted to just stop and settle with the two pieces that I already have in my gallery. But, I pulled on and finished, and I'm happy to say that this is my favorite piece of artwork that I've ever created, and reguarless of whether it wins or not, I'll always have fond and scary memories of creating it. I feel like I've grown as an artist during the past month, and to me, that's what matters the most.

Thank you all for all of your support, and I hope you all enjot this illustration as I had fun creating it!

Love you guys!
-Shelby

Has the fans ever actually picked an eye color for Duncan? I see him in green and I've seen you put him in gold and blue. Just curious

To be honest, I can name everyone but 3 people: the alligator dude, the guy in the bottom right corner, and the guy with the twigs in his hair. (I usually just watch Simon and Lewis)

:meow: I'm guessing that the alligator dude is Teep (I've only seen him once), the guy in the corner is Toby (You can see him on some of Martyn's videos), and the last one is Nilesy.

Hope that helped :)

Really? I always think of Nilesy with thicker hair... wait. Oh, now I read the comment. Ok, so twigs in hair is Nilesy, and Toby is corner-guy. Got it. Just looked up their channels to cross-reference images. Understand now.

Rythianson Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013
Now, see, that's what I keep saying. Rythian has purple eyes, but people keep drawing him with blue eyes. Even his current avatar has blue eyes. It's strangely inconsistent with the theme Rythian himself appears to be going for.

Duncan's pretty cool. I know he's not the funniest of members, but he know his stuff. And he has a degree in art, so his Minecraft creations look great! Not quite as awesome as Sjin's do though. Sjin is more my style.
