Fandom switch! I have no idea who is going to recognize this one. How do I explain this?
Does anyone watch anything from "That Guy with the Glasses?"
Every year for the past couple of years all of the reviewers (they review movies, games, music, anime, you name it...) from this one website would get together and make a movie and the anniversary of the birth of the site. I love em. They're ridiculous, low budget, and super silly. Just like what would happen if you got all your friends together and one of them had a camera and a couple of you had really good imaginations. Good times. Anyway, their second to last anniversary movie revolved around the idea that they all had to dress up as a fantasy character and search for an ancient treasure. With a cast this big, the sheer number of homages to fantasy and adventure classics was a sublime.
While I certainly can't recommend That Guy With the Glasses to everyone (I think you need a very specific sense of humor, love of bad movies, and tolerance of bad language and so on) I do enjoy them myself. This was a two pager that I always intended to turn into one huge epic drawing,... I think I started it three years ago? Just about time to pull it out and finish it up.
Some of the videos from this website helped me keep my sanity during my time at art college. If I was working on a giant drawing or painting I would frequently set myself up to draw mindlessly and watch reviews or "Lets Play's" at the same time. I made a tradition of about once a year watching Paw play through Kings Quest 5, the Transmission Awesome Let's Play of Conquest of the Longbow (In it's ENTIRETY!!), and PushingupRoses Let's Play of Quest for Glory 1 (I know you're not on here Roses, but you're still one of my favorites). It doesn't matter how many times I watch them, I still laugh at all my favorite parts.
So anyway, all that to say that this fan art is kind of a big "I <3 you guys" to the classic TGWTG team, and thanks for helping me laugh through art college.
