This one comes later in the day than normal because we don’t make posts like this until the piece is publicly published by the author, even if we’re aware it already exists privately. But, Mr. Trerzich missed the upload due to his insistence on ignoring the internet on April Fool’s Day (who could blame him) and only just today saw it. Anyhow, another acquaintance of his through the Newgrounds Festivals, Lil Spook [Newgrounds/Twitter], held a giveaway for hitting 300 fans on the site and he won a commission. He decided to have her draw Valor because he’s otherwise always having people draw the ladies and that little guy doesn’t get enough love. So like always, if you enjoy the piece, please follow up by checking out Lil Spook’s other stuff and possibly following her if you like that as well.
Time again for another Art Round-up in the midst of a content draught here on the Ex Dynamis Chaos website. Remember, if you make any EDK art or find some while roaming the web, please send it to us on any of our profiles and we’ll be sure to share it for all our community to see. Today we have a piece from MayaLaCookie [Newgrounds/Twitter], another individual Mr. Terzich met through the Newgrounds festivals. Through an art practice thread, found here, Maya brings us a simple, inked bust of Laney Lin with only a couple tones to accentuate certain parts of her outfit. Maya is a budding artist with lots of other work to peruse, so please send warm regards if you enjoy the piece.
Immediate apologies for yet more delays. Just as Mr. Terzich finally gets a replacement power cable for the one lost in the move, the old scanner itself decided to kick the bucket after only two more uses. We will be holding a fundraiser for a new machine as soon as he prepares it, but, in the meantime, we are at our Wednesday Art Round-up. This week, we have yet another buddy of Mr. Terzich’s that he met through the Newgrounds Festivals discord: SkeleBum [Newgrounds/Twitter]. She hits us with some sketches involving our beloved mascot, Zeba. The first of which is a solo portrait of her.
The second picture features her character from her own projects, Jolyn Yootouze, hanging out with Zeba in an “Ogre tavern”, which I’m sure is as interesting a place to visit as any for a space-time traveler on holiday. I like to imagine Jolyn is regaling Zeba with some over-the-top tale filled with astonish and excite that Zeba will sneakily go back and watch from a clever location. She does enjoy for people to tell their stories, but she just can’t help herself with seeing them in person.
Please help us show our appreciation by checking out SkeleBum’s or works and possibly giving a follow if any of it is up your alley.
Well, for those not following updates on other platforms, the snag in the recent momentum of uploads is due to Mr. Terzich’s recent move and one missing power adapter for his scanner. If you did not know, all the pages start out traditionally. But thankfully, you do get content on this day with a spotlight on another artist. Recently, one of Mr. Terzich’s buddies he’s made through the Newgrounds Festivals discord server, Pam [Newgrounds/Twitter], was kind enough to whip up a lovely picture of our mascot, Zeba, for his life ceremony just last week.
But this isn’t the only picture she’s made related to Ex Dynamis Chaos. They mostly never leave chatrooms and get uploaded anywhere properly (until now), but Pam often sketches up fun images for her friends that she hangouts out with. We have two other sketches that she has dropped on Mr. Terzich within recent times. The first of which was a redraw of an official nekomimi (a catgirl like Purrcy) image for the TCG that’s been indefinitely on the backburner.
The second is a fun picture of The Metal slurping up ramen like a pro because that is apparently all the man eats (meet the guy and you’ll probably come to the same conclusion).
Pam is a fun and talented artist who aspires to make comics of her own someday, so follow her profiles and see what else is in store.
Still chugging a little slow this year, but new stuff is actually being produced as we speak, including a couple shorts that were supposed to be on this site last year. But in the meantime, today’s Art Round-up is spotlight on the artist Kiyo [kiyooo on Newgrounds/KiyoInHell on Twitter]. She is a wonderful artist, in both respects of illustration and animation, that doesn’t post nearly enough. While hanging out in the Newgrounds Festivals discord server, she decided to doodle the mascot of this fine publication, Zeba, in various poses and expression as well as adding The Metal in there for good measure. She refers to this as a “Family Portrait” after putting the character’s creator over arching at the top.
On top of this, she also threw Zeba into the background of a recent animation for round 4 of the Newgrounds Animation Summer Jams as a little plushie with a camera that you can see here in Charlie’s Little Dance.
And here is just the a snapshot of how Zeba appears in the video for those that didn’t watch it. I think Kiyo really captured the essence of Zeba there, don’t you?
But that’s not all I’m talking about involving Kiyo in today’s post. I ended up liking her doodles so much that I took her pencils and turned them into fully colored scenes. So, enjoy the my interpretations of the images below to close things out.
