I can only assume I'm not in the picture. Haven't really been looking that hard though.

Well, you have a question mark in Noxid's picture so...
Maybe?
Anyway, that's a beautiful picture sir. I don't have much to add.

Thanks you guys <3
I really wished i could say it isn't finished yet, but right now i'm hitting the cap of layers SAI would let me make(255) so that gave me a lot of trouble. I already had to merge several characters into fewer layers so they are harder to edit now, but not impossible.
There are a few people that i've missed that i would've added (edward13, bhad, rubyoshi, random letters person), but again layers make it hard. Wasn't sure either which people i should've added over others, so if anyone can remind me of someone or two i should really add to the drawing, name it! :D

For the people who want to see the names:

ElecMaw, I have no words for such awesome art. Really love how you drew my "Mikachu" character. I don't suppose it's possible for you to give me a pic of just my character? I would like to use it as my avatar. ;3 Your art style is brilliant.

Man, that picture's good.
For the layer problem, I recommend saving it as a .sai (so all layer info is saved just incase), then as a .png (compressed into one layer) and opening the .png back up (should have 1 layer) and keep drawing.
That's a way I think that could be solved, otherwise just make two pictures, which would be a bit easier...
Anyways, I wish you luck on completing it!

Mine's eyes are actually wrong, The green LEDs are the eyebrows with the red glow being the actual eyes...

...but I like it better how you drew it. ^.^ That's a really nice pic you have there.

Why am I wearing a hat?
Also I'm sad that Dinny doesn't post enough to be on there.
Also fantastic work, ElecMaw.

Gah, it's kinda hard to see. I also assumed it's hair is grey, it's a bit difficult to see so hopefully i got that right

I drew you based on simon belmont, your avatar has Castlevania in it so i picked that.

I'm probably going to post a small log about my experience with drawing this (for those interested, lol):
-Gir's left side of his body is based on Monobear, inspired by his let's play thread
-Double's sign is based on this, his name being a ref to a dystopian novel
-I drew X-Calibar with a completely different brush to resemble his avatar more
-Drawing a beak on this artstyle is impossible, which led to a problem (as you can see) trying to draw RSK. Attempts at drawing it just gave him orange lips
-Drawing Noxid's skateboard made me realise drawing sparkledogs is a hard craft to master
-Thomasco is probably the most difficult to recognise, his avatar were a bunch of buldings but his profile has a picture of his oc i think?? I just went with that and made up the colors on the spot.
-Carrotlord is grasping at a bunch of mints
-Me vomitting is a ref to my pleasant experience with the Curly Brace

-Most of these people i've drawn are based on their avatars, if they don't have a (suitable) one i checked on their profile if they have a oc's to use(Lace, Thomasco, Desu, Cookedchef). With some others i tried blending past avatars with their current ones (Fab, Matt) or just use a previous one(Double). Failing that and i just assume complete creative control(Carrotlord, Sexplosive, The Core). I tried to make them not like the normal cave story characters whenever possible.
-Originally i wanted to add a lot more elements to the drawing(Like a beam of light shining on Enlightened and a small halo above Polaris), but i stopped with the idea because it was too distracting
-I uploaded this on DeviantArt a few days before uploading it here, which i had to filter for mature content because of Lace's crown
-I wanted to add a basic background, but i deleted it because it was barely visible
-Taking a very rough guess, this drawing took me between 20-40 hours in total, in general it took me a lot of time. But i had a blast doing it! :D

I'm probably going to leave it like this, i think i got the most important people in the picture. I think i can cram a few new ones into it here and there, but don't expect a massive rehaul. Again, if there's anyone important missing just say the name and i'll add them in

Oh, and fab i did your previous avatar by memory and i thought it wore a hat, but it could also be a dog with floppy ears... It's been a while since you had that avatar, so my mind is foggy on that one.
And thanks! I know i did a great job if fab is complimenting me! :p

Ok I split the thread because this was sort of taking over the Artwork thread, and it really deserves to be its own thread.

If you can think of a better title for the thread elec, feel free to tell me or whatnot (or change it, if you can).

Also it took me a while to figure out why half of my avatar was dark/evil/monobear in the picture, but I did figure it out before you posted the explanation.

I save my avatars when I crop them, but I don't remember which ones I used when. I'm guessing you're thinking of either this one or this one.

And now, due to the fact that I am drawn with bat wings,




My avatar will now have bat wings!
It's actually supposed to be a hood, but...BAT WINGS LOOK BETTER

Oh hey, I'm in! I first thought why my character looked like that and I remembered one of my profile pics as an "ugly" Tomoko.

Have another "ugly" Tomoko
