Late to the bandwagon, but I did Undertale fanart.

Firstly, in case you didn't catch it in the image, please don't spoil anything in the comments. I take spoilers very seriously and I will start deleting comments at the first sight of them. But please don't make me have to do that. ^_^

The spoiler thing is important though, because I've never technically played this game (I don't normally like gaming on my computer). But I did happen upon the demo the other day and finally decided to at least try that. I was... immediately in love. The atmosphere, the music, the characters (the demo consisted only of those in the image)... just everything captivated me right off. I laughed. I cried (twice). My mind was blown a little. And that's just from the half hour demo.

So even though I was previously content to dodge spoilers while waiting for a console version (which, to my understanding, could very well never happen), I'm kind of invested now. I know I'm going to have to give in and play this real soon. But for now, I really need to focus. Thing is, it's so in my head right now.

Hence the fanart. When I get a new story idea that I don't want to work on right away, I tend to draw the lead character(s) to clear my head so I can return my attention to the comic. It usually works. So let's see if it works with other people's stories too. XD

As for the art itself, I primarily used sprites from the demo as reference for the characters (and a screenshot for the background). For the most part, Toriel, Flowey, and Napstablook are pretty directly how they appear in the game. The player character (whom I named "Lynn"; I don't know what their actual name is if they have one) has a little bit of artistic license. I'm to understand that the player character's age, gender and ethnicity was left purposely ambiguous so the player can insert themselves in whatever way makes them most comfortable. So OF COURSE my head canon of the protagonist is a little trans girl (would you expect anything else from me?). XD

Anywho, eventually I'll actually play this. And when I do, there's a good chance I'll draw more. But for now, just a cute, little pic and back to Rain!

I think I'm one of the few people who doesn't like Undertale. I still think it's a great game, but it didn't grab me. I kind of just got bored...

You are going to love this game. There is something I kind of want to talk about tats super relatable but it would be kinda spoilery so I'll keep mum until you finish your first play through.

Helped make my day. Seriously, this game has given me so many feels, so feely it's impossible to force yourself to have a bad time.

My husband and I just "finished" our first playthrough of Undertale (quotation marks because there's seemingly tons to discover even when you think you're through)! I thought it was fun from the start but it really started to pull me in the further we got into the story.

Jocelyn, if you end up playing and liking it, you HAVE to seek out Earthbound (if you haven't already played it, of course!). Originally for SNES, we found a "homebrew" version for the Wii. I'd never played it as a kid, but it was a gigantic influence on Undertale and is hands-down my favorite game. Have fun!! I love your comics, btw! :)

@Katie Valeska

I have played Earthbound, actually. Somewhere between 20-30 times, in fact. ^_^ It's actually one of my favorite games. I've done fanart for that as well too (which, oddly, I thought I posted on Comic Fury; sorry for that oversight).

But yeah, when Undertale first came out, I heard a lot of early comparisons of it to Earthbound, which was what originally got me curious about it. And now I'm FINALLY playing it.

Excellent! I had missed the boat on that one for so long, glad you were already a fan! Enjoy your Undertale experience(s) :)

There are a lot of "Easter eggs" in this game, so you really have to explore everything. Also, be very careful when doing certain things, as just about every move you make will effect the rest of your game. I wish I could explain this more, but I don't know what you consider to be spoilers, and I don't want to ruin the game for you.

imo that mechanics kind of a spoiler on its own
arthursbeardbone 14th Feb 2016, 4:04 PM edit delete reply
OMG this is like seriously my favorite game. First Smash, than Game Grumps, now Undertale, are we like clones or something?

SPOILER: The butler is the cinnamon!

I also did a Let's Play of this game! I heard it touted so much that I was averse to the hype, and since I actually disliked Earthbound, I was thinking this game wasn't for me. But lo, I was wrong!

Spoiler alert! This is a spoiler alert.

When I saw this, I literally screamed. I mean, I know you're awesome, you like anime, Nintendo, even old-school video games but Undertale? Undertale is my favorite video game ever and I'm so happy to see you do fanart of it! Please do more!

Enjoy the game!

When I saw your character art I legitimately thought it was of Chanel as the player character...
