The Fan Corner

Have you ever seen the Fan Corner on the main site? Here is the thread version of it where any and all fanworks based off of the Gamerverse is posted and considered for addition to the site's Fan Corner. Show off your work and maybe you'll get featured!

"The Stage" rules apply here, so read up over there.

As of 8/22/07, these were all the submissions in the Fan Corner forum before I made the switch...

A whiile back, Jenia made a design for Czar Gamer, and Cap posted it on the BnG forums, but as with everything I post on there, the thread died.
So I thought, "Why not?" And brought it over here. I kind of feel bad, like Cap or at least Jenia should have posted this instead of me, but I just thought that they probably weren't going to, so here it is: bishi Czar.



I hereby turn total control of this thread over to Captain Gamer. And maybe Jenia.


Heh, first off I was rather iffy about showing this, hence why it went on Bob and George instead of here. Second, it's a fan sprite, not anything official or canon, so it's more fit for the Fan Corner than its own topic. If a change in hairstyle were made in the story or comic, sure, that's a topic, but for a fan sprite, a simple post will do.
Koji_Tsunami

A thread might be better, cause it allows for more disscussion, but this is cool too. The reason I put this in its own topic was because of how you posted it in the BnG forums. You even changed the title of your sprite thread for the umpteenth time. The way you wrote your post made it sound as though you were considering making it Czar's canon hairdo.
(I like it more than the short hair anyway. differentiates from Cap. Smile ) At any rate, It probably won't be discussed in here as much as I would've liked. It's all cool though. It's all cool.
Koji_Tsunami

It's been a looong looong time since anybody added anything to the Fan Corner. I felt the need to do somthing, so I present a Captain Gamer hack of Mario 64. Too bad Cap doesn't have a mouth in this one, but it turns out that without the 'stache, Mario has no mouth.

Here it is.
Captain Gamer 64

I present to you: my first ever uploaded picture. I realise it needs work in a lot of ways, but here it is anyway.
"Captain Gamer - lonely road".
Konoko

Somehow, I never really thought of Greenday and Cap as having much thematic connection, based on his general optimism, but based on some of the OOC stuff, I suppose I really can't fault it.
Are you using...paint for that though? Cos some of the colours edges are really rough, a downloaded copy of any photoshop, or of GIMP, a bit of multiply layer over a brush one...that'd sort that out. Otherwise though, nice proportions, a little tim burton at points, but its fine. Perspective isn't perfect, the horizon seems too high considering how foreshortened the stripes are, but thats always tricky to get down just right. Love the font and general set up. Overall, <3/10. =p
Anomaly

Actually, I was using PhotoShop. I'm just no good with it. I'll get my brother's copy of Illustrator for any future work - I hear it's great for colouring. And part of the reason the horizon's like that is because the picture was originally wider, but I had to crop it down to be able to scan it. So, yeah, it phailed at a few points.
And, since you mentioned the thematic connection, I used those lines because Cap himself has said that he considers the song to be like a Captain Gamer theme song.

Same reason I used it.
He mentioned it in the video thread.
Anomaly

I have two pictures for you this time! Both of Constable Gamer.

First off, we have her in her regular uniform, posing with a generic gun (because I couldn't find any pictures of the Flash Shot).


Second, her in her "Succubus Suit" outfit while wielding a bo staff... similarly, because I couldn't find a picture of the Mushakuboh.
Anomaly

Ok, this time I have a picture somewhat different from usual for you. Without further ado, allow me to present to you... the first ever Captain Gamer cosplay!

New photos will be uploaded as they're taken. This one I could only barely get my brother to snap.
Skybait J

omg! you beat me to the cosplayingness. Now I really gotta get that shirt done... >.>

Thats friggin sweet either way. soon, very soon, we shall CONQUER THE WORLD! With Capn Cosplay. Yes. X3

Leeroy Gamer

Well, the Fan Corner's been pretty quiet since my cosplay, so I figured I'd try revitalising it with an injection of new medium. Yeah, this time, I'm giving you a bit of fanprose. Title of "Leeroy Gamer" - I'm sure you can figure out what that means.

Anomaly wrote:
The four of them stayed concealed behind an outcropping of rock. Silver Gamer peered through a small break, watching the cave entrance closely. While they waited for the plan, the other three prepared themselves in various ways: Cadet Gamer switched through his different Game Cards, Techno Gamer tapped through his Automap and various saved profiles of the enemies they'd face, and Captain Gamer moved through the rocks like he was looking for something.

Silver came back, and dusted herself off. Upon seeing her return, the others finished their preparations quickly and stood to greet her, waiting for the plan. She began to speak. "Ok guys, these eggs have given us a lot of trouble in the past. Uh, does anyone need anything, or can we go ahead?"

Cadet looked over his shoulder at the only one who hadn't risen to join the team. "I think... I think Cap's just getting something now."

After giving him a brief glance, Techno nodded. "Yeah, I think he's looking for something to Power Copy."

The field leader sighed. "Cripes. Ok, here's the plan. I'll run in first with Crash Spin and gather up all the eggs, so Cadet can kinda just blast them all down with the Bomb Crystal. When that runs out, I'll switch to Pokeball and Star Rod, to kinda scatter 'em, so we don't have to fight a whole bunch of them at once. While I'm doing that, Cadet and Cap will use their Beam Swords, and Techno will use Killer Bee, so we can get them down fast. After that, we'll try to all get on the boss at once, protect break him, so Techno can use Data Drain. I think this is a pretty good plan, we should be able to pull it off this time. What do you think, Techno? Can you give me a number crunch real quick?"

"Yeah, give me a second." Techno tapped a couple of buttons on his Station. "I'm getting a 33.3 recurring percentage chance."

Silver nodded. "Well, that's a lot better than we usually do. All right, you think we're rea--" She was interrupted loudly.

"Time's up, let's do this!" The sound came from behind them, and by the time anyone realised what it meant, it was too late. "It's game time!" Captain Gamer charged past, heading straight into the cave.

The other Gamers just stood there, silent. You could almost see the three dots of an ellipsis hanging in the air above them. Cadet broke the silence to voice what they were all thinking. "Oh my God, he just ran in."
Skybait J

...Why can I see this happening? XD
Majin Luigi

*sigh*
Because it would...
I feel sorry for the rest of that lot...
I'm not sure that Cap is much of a team player anyway.
Captain Gamer

... At least I have chicken. =X
Captain Gamer

Take a good look at this right here! Surprised
Anomaly

Man, not even a reply to the awesome manga-style commission. Well, sure, I'll go ahead. Darned awesome picture, you picked a good artist for the new commission. And it's nice to see a full, definite design for the Gamer Station: eerily close to one of the two I came up with, in fact.

And it got me into gear enough to draw one of my own, to be found here. I know, it doesn't quite hold a candle to the pro work, but still.
Anomaly

And this thread has again been too quiet for too long, and it's again going to be me who does the posting. Let's have a look at what I've got for us this time around!

Knight of the fort

that's damn good, and it has effective us of Blur lines.

Thanks! Though, I just came up with the concept of making a real-life Gamersuit, and then was the model. The camera and Photoshop afterward were the work of my brother.
Koji_Tsunami

Dude. o.O
I'd have done something like that long ago, except for my lack of a suitable shirt and silver visor (though I've noticed you also lack a silver visor, Anamoly).
Anomaly

You have to make do with what you can get. Razz I figured that white-rimmed single-lensed mirrorshades were the best bet to replace something which I couldn't actually find (no, not even on eBay!).

Also, I didn't actually have or find a shirt which happened to be cobalt blue with "CG" written on it; I made it myself with a home-made stencil and acrylic paint.
TCC

verry cool, but im the type of guy who, when he gets a Rib eye steak complains for the lack of sour cream... and now saying that i have to say, your hair is WAY too neat! not a big deal, i know, but it throws off the gamer style i suppose... i dunno, at least it looks to be that way to me.... oh, and wheres the gamer station? i would think you could make something like that out of an old soda bottle, and some tin foil (maybe even some markers) but it really depends on how realistic your going with the whole thing... one more thing (and just to make sure i dont sound like a total jurk or anything, its still really cool) i dont know if its just the lighting in the place where the picture was taken, or what. but the CG was a bit hard to see, and i didnt even notice it until i saw you say something about it in a post. sorry if i got a little too complacent with the whole thing, but i grew up in a verry artistic household, and i guess over the years constant asking for constructive criticisms sort of got me to notice some of the smaller things that people wouldnt really complain about... awsome suit by the way! (wow... this is a really long post... i feel like i should leave some kind of sign off thing at the end....O_o)

Yeah, I'll accept that. It's just that I tend towards that kind of hairstyle, and it looks best for me than any attempt at intentional messiness that I've managed so far. I will try something along those lines next time I get an opportunity for an actual photoshoot. (I do, after all, still have the outfit.)

Quote:
oh, and wheres the gamer station? i would think you could make something like that out of an old soda bottle, and some tin foil
Honestly... I would have no idea how to make something like that. I had constant supervision from my brother when I made the shirt, too. I just don't really have a crafts kind of skillset. Not to mention, the Station still doesn't have an official design. >.>

Quote:

I'd say it's mostly the lighting; the chest of the shirt is a bit in shadow, after all. When it's lit properly, the design's much easier to see. But then, cobalt's already a fairly dark kind of blue.

Oh, no problem. If I don't get proper constructive criticism, if people don't point out the mistakes I missed, how else will I be able to fix them? I've clearly already missed them myself, after all.

TCC's current avatar is a fan submission enough. >_O Can't believe I haven't noticed it before. ANYWAY!

Better Captain Gamer bio

Katherine Gaines bio!?

Wrap your eyes around these!
... And then buy the Captain bio print! >o<
Konoko

Wow, Kates got some serious hips going on there. *jealous*
I'm still trying to figure out the bottom of Caps trousers. Everytime I look at that yellow insignia thing, I get stuck somewhere between imperial guard and captain falcon. I thought about buying the print, as you urged, but christmas leaves me poor. =\ Maybe one of the smaller sizes once I get a paypal or whatever.
Ron Ashkenazi is a cool name.

Edit: Curses! My post is on the darker background and the white text is too obvious for what I originally said. =S

Actually.... ive changed my avatar scense then, but heres a re-worked version along with a "desktop" (ok, it's really more of an enlarged version with bigger text, but it looks a whole lot better than if you actually just enlarged it.)




(I recomend that you don't set it to stretch, or it will either make it wigged out, and too tall/wide, or it will be just plain to big to look good anymore. set it to centered, and set it in white and it should be fine.)
I'm thinking I might re-do it again with an actual street fighter gamer sprite, but it may take me a while to find a good shot of gamer doing a fist pump to work with.

edit: dang! i just noticed spots of green under sonics arms! frikkin back-colored sprite pages! >_<
TCC

Ok,  so i got kind of bored and was looking through some of these fancorner submissions and stuff, and I saw the Gamer bio and how it was so different from the original gamer sprite. I didn't really have anything better to do so...

Captain Gamer

o_o Wow! Are you normally that good, or was the edit just that easy? X3

Also, despite not expecting any such thing, our forumgoer Anomaly graced me with a birthday gift, in art form! Check it out!
TCC

well, other than the hair, the edit was relatively easy... at least to me... as for the hair, I HATE anime hair! It
takes forever to sprite, and another forever and a half just to get the shading and highlights to look right! >_<
fortunately though, the hair on this one turned out pretty good.


note: I heard you wanted some sprite work done, and I'd be happy to help you out. you have my email,
so if you want some help just send me your original sprite sheet, along with whatever sprite request you want....
TCC

boredom strikes again, and lo-and behold! katherine Gaines!

I don't think she turned out quite as well as gamer V.2, but who cares! when boredom calls I must answer it!
Captain Gamer

How much of that was scratch? Truth be told, I am in the market for pixel artists. Even though I can easily do the comic myself, I have to be honest in knowing that if I'm going to upkeep this, it's best for my health to get somebody else on the sprites. >_<
TCC

most of the sprite is from scratch... sort of... I started with the new version of cap, and
sort of wittled it down, and at the same time built stuff up, primarily an altered neck, waist,
legs... umm... chest O_o; etc.I think I changed it drasticaly enough to call it from scratch
though.I kind of wish I had more source sprites, cause the arms looked kind of
bulky for a girl, and I could probably have just pulled something better from a girl fighter...
also the face is kind of odd next to Cap... maybe I should start over... hmm... anyway,
for any work you could give me, like I said, just sort of send the request to me. XP

I don't know how readily you are to accept the destroying of vintage video game perifferals, but the nintendo power glove (with the right modifications) would probably make a pretty cool moc-gamerstation! personaly I would'nt have the heart to cut up an old school perif like that, no matter how much people tell me it sucked, but you on the other hand... ?) hmm... cap uses way too many old school perifs... it's just getting harder and harder to put together a Cosplay of him...
