Pixel Rathalos by Alyx-XCV Pixel Rathalos by Alyx-XCV
edit:kinda thinking about adding slight animation to this asfasdg

I'd be much more satisfied with myself and my art if I would've continued down my original art path drawing dragons and creatures and focusing on reinforcing that skill and evolving with that instead of being introduced to anime and then starting over with that. People say you're only good at what you practice, so that's what I intend on doing.

I know pixel work isn't much of a strong start, but I really had no idea where to start, and jumping right into something full blown would've discouraged me, so i tried something a little toned down, but still colored, so i went with a pixel so i can kinda show myself even if it's something really small, I still have somewhat of a start asfsg

Im gonna try to do a few more of these and some light and thin sketches with minor details, then jump to monochrome shading, try to practice textures and hopefully eventually be able to full out color and paint dragons and creatures.

Anyyyywhoooo this is a rathalos from my favorite game (tied with LoZ), Monster Hunter and if you play this game then i love you because I don't often find many people who know this game agdfhgfk

This is one bada$$ rathalos! He's lots of fun to hunt on Tri, but in freedom unite, dear god his instacharges kill me in one hit >.< You should make a pixel rathian ^w^
Alyx-XCV Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
i actually much rather prefer figthing him in Unite than Tri! xD
probably because ive played it much longer than Tri, so im more used to his moves

! i assume youre a monster hunter as well? :>
you've got some pretty rad art you should give a go at drawing the los c;
prismapunk Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013  Student General Artist
Aw thanks!

And yusssss I can't wait for 3G to come out next month! I want it sooooo bad!

As for drawing the monsters, I totally should .. And I've thought about it, it's just that I'm skittish and don't want to completely ruin a drawing of something I love so damn much xD
Alyx-XCV Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
omggg i know adfhksdfg are you getting it for the Wii U or 3DS?
i want to get both but ill probably have to get the 3DS game first

ahhhh i knoow those feelings askfg thats what i was worried about
doing on this pixel but asfksd nah man you totally could pull it off
prismapunk Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Student General Artist
I really want the Wii U version cuz I like having the larger screen, but I don't have the system OR the money for it, so I guess I can get it in the future. I'm getting the 3DS version. I like the portability of it anyway, since I used to be addicted to the PSP versions for the longest time. Basically, I like to be able to play the game ANYWHERE without being tied to a computer or tv, but I like the larger screen of the tv for more important hunts and so my mom can watch because she and I like to trash talk monsters, and some of the mess ups I have are pretty fucking hilarious, and I like making her laugh by doing or finding stupid things in the game, or 'tricking' or just plain messing with big monsters. It's not exactly glitching, but it's just making them do funny things, usually on accident. It's always more funny if other people see it too, cuz if you're sitting in a room full of people who don't see your screen, and you start laughing your head off at something that happened in game, now everyone's looking at you like you're a dumbfuck and you have to try to explain what happened, what a "rathalos" even is, then you gotta explain all the terminology, and what happened, and make it sound like something that never happens, and by the time you've even vaguely covered what was so apparently funny, even YOU think it sounds retarded and pointless so yeah ... If they're watching, you don't have to explain anything cuz they can all see it, so when it happens, it's just funny.

So... Double edged sword ya know? I want both, because I heard that you can take your game progress/info from the Wii U and transfer it to your 3DS version at any time and vise versa, so you can play on a tv and on the go, but I don't know if that's true, or what the terms or rules for that are, or even how long transferring so much data would even take (cuz like ... if you're playing on Wii U and then your family is suddenly like "lets go to grandmas" or somewhere out of the blue but you just got to a good part, or you're determined to beat this fucking royal ludroth who won't just fucking die and wanna take the game along, idk how fast the transfer is so it might not transfer in time for your family to leave, and then you're feeling rushed, family's mad at you, and you have to leave both your DS and Wii running for god knows how long ugh)

so yeah ... dunno... Defs getting the 3DS version first, because being able to play it everywhere you want is top priority over having other people to laugh with to me. xD I'm funny, so I can get them to laugh about other things. We definitely need to share friend codes and go on hunts together when it comes out though. I'm trying to get my mom into it, because she played World of Warcraft for many years, and ever since Pokemon Gold and Silver were released, she's played every Pokemon version start to finish like a pro. She's better than me at both games (but we don't play WoW anymore cuz it got too repetitive and pokemon isnt AS interesting to me as it used to be cuz i prefer the old gens .. plus she finishes pokemon within like a week and a half, two weeks)

Ever since I got Tri, then discovered the PSP versions and started playing them, I've ALWAYS wanted people to play with, but I have yet to meet someone who plays that speaks English and isn't a douche xD And I get social anxiety, so I don't want to party with all strangers the first time I use multiplayer, have a bad experience, then never want to multiplayer again, because a LOT of the game is only for multiplayer xD So you can't really play some of the best content unless you play with other people yknow?
Alyx-XCV Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oh god yes the big screen is what I want AND TRYING TO EXPLAIN SOMETHING FUNNY OR AWESOME YES EXACTLY SJghdgjksdfh
And the Wii U will have online play and you know damn well right when that game comes out the servers will be fuckin' packed like it was on Tri while it was still fun. BUT YEAH ABOUT THE DATA TRANSFERRING thats completely true, and the whole being able to take it on the go is why i want it cuz my best friend is probably gonna get it too when it comes out so if we both get it ill be able to hunt with at least one person and once i scrape up enough cash for the wii U console im gonna buy it and join everyone online

but yeah about the speed of the transfer i havent thought about that, but id assume itd be fast. like on Tri you could save your character instantly to your wii remote, i hope it'd be about that fast give or take. I would totally be all over the friend code thing but
they specifically said the 3DS version will not have online play wHICH IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT BECAUSE THE 3DS IS TOTALLY CAPABLE OF DOING THAT but they want people to buy both games like asshats.

i got my moms sister addicted to minecraft thats about it oTL

OH you got introduced to the series through tri??? that always makes me happy because it means that tri actually did help the game become noticed afdskg i think i started playing MH when i was about 10 or 11 when Freedom one came out for psp 8 years ago asfsdg
psp versions are WAYY better actually dgfgjh I was disappointed in tri
but you should totally convince your friends to buy freedom unite (assuming thats the one you play because its the best ajkds) and you can go on missions together hnnng yes adfksdgj
but yeah if me and you ever end up getting Wii U versions then we'll go online together so we dont look like noobs uvu ♥
i actually met one of my best online friends on MH Tri ajfhsdg sOME PEOPLE ARE REALLY COOL
prismapunk Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Student General Artist
Yeah, I'm currently looking for a job, so when I get one, I'll save up the money for the Wii U and its MH version so I have the options. Wtf no online play for the 3DS version?? That's so annoying Dx Fuck! Well at least I'll - hopefully - have decent gear by the time I can afford a Wii U then so I don't make a fool of myself on multiplayer..

I've only been playing MH for like a year. xD I'm WAYYYY late, cuz I could never afford any of the games until I had a job awhile ago. And yeah, I agree, the PSP versions were definitely better than Tri. Tbh the reason none of my friends play Monster Hunter is because I literally only have 1 real life friend. :T And she doesn't have a PSP or the money to get one even though they're really cheap now.

All my friends were younger than me in high school, so I graduated last year and they all didn't, and now it's like I never even existed to them. They don't talk to me, and if I try to text them or look them up online to message them, they never answer. It's like they don't want me to have existed, which is a shitty feeling. The only social interaction I get now is during the 4 college classes I have, and when I go job hunting, but everyone in my classes are like in their 30s-50s cuz they're night classes, so they aren't interested in being actual friends and even if they were, it'd be kind of weird because I'm 19.

Anyways, are you open for trades of any kind? I would love to do a Monster Hunter trade with you if you have any free time. I adore pixel art of anything for starters, and your art here of Rathalos is just outstanding. I'd be willing to do a full color painting of any monster you want in return. But I understand if you don't have time for a trade right now :> I actually have other trades I should probably work on too xD
Alyx-XCV Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
ahhh same asjfhsg im really needing a job oTL
and yeah it is pretty crappy of them to do that, its like the best handheld for online games and they refuse to let us play online.
but yeah at least we'll be able to work up towards the Wii U, but since its so similar to Tri im hoping that i dont play too much out of it and then get bored by the time i can afford the Wii U oTL
speaking of which, have you played the demo version on the 3DS nintendo store? my friend told me about it earlier and i spread the word and we all just kind flipped out and played the demo

asdfjsg aww if i knew you irl man we'd be all over MH we'd have like hunter gatherings every weekend and gang up on them fuckers and you know the deal.
my best friend borrows my other psp and MH game so i got her addicted to it and now she just kinda has my spare game LOL

omggg ; __; dont tell me this because thats probably how itll be for me once i graduate this year ajsdfhsdg actually nvm itll probably be people trying to talk to me and me being too lazy to reply oTL im bad at that. but you seem pretty cool from what little ive seen so far about you so i guess their loss??? the 30-50 year olds tho omg no

and actually id love to have a trade with you, and a monster hunter trade sounds pretty awesome actually C:
ill have to convince myself to finish a few things but a MH trade would probably be enough motivation for me to get my shit done Cx
