So yeah, i recently wondered why i don't have any Fan-Art, even though i actually draw alot.
After digging through my piles of art , i realized that i have little to no fan-art of specifically Ratchet And Clank, but yet i remember spending hours and hours on drawing Ratchet And Clank stuff, like weapons, characters and enemies.
And then it came to my mind, i finally found something that i could actually upload.
When i was 8-9 years old, we all had that "Something-Club" thing going on, where everybody started to invent stuff like "Secret Language Club", "Girls Club" and that kind of stuff . Basically a group of students, who were members of an organization with their own handshakes and rules. Most of those clubs just faded away after a few months, but then i came. And, you know me, when i start something, it's gonna be BIG..
So at the age of 8 i started something called the "Ninja Club". Basically, each member would be a character in "my own" comic series. We would play around in the break and fight imaginary bad guys on the playground. :oui:
That club was alive until the end of the primary school (that was 4 friggin years), and even continued in secondary school, though the members weren't really active near the fifth year of primary school, but i just kept drawing the comics.
So why am i posting this here? Well, guess why i wrote 'My own comic series' in quotation marks..
That was the time when i started really falling in love with the Ratchet And Clank universe, so much, that i decided to base the whole "Ninja Club" on the Storyline of Ratchet And Clank UYA.
The members in my club would play the role of Ratchet, and one specific member would be Clank. They would visit the same planets, battle the same enemies and use some of the weapons that Ratchet used as well, with addition of some weapons that i invented myself.
So the concept was made, and i went on and on drawing those comics, at home or even at school. (I'm such a bad-boy ) Turned out to be a huge pile of paper, with up to 16 Issues, each containing an average of 15 sheets of paper. They might not always be really detailed, but they are pretty enjoyable. I added my Aster-ish style into it after all.
These are all the Ninja Club Comics in my folder:
I think it's really interesting, seeing how my style has improved/changed over the year, and also, it is interesting seeing my interpretation of UYA characters and things.
For example, here's the Tyhrranoid Mech from my first comic, back when i was 8/9 years old, and under that is him from a later issue, where i was about 12.
Some interesting notes:
- When i finally realized, that it actually was a 2-eyed Tyhrranoid sitting inside of a machine, and not simply a head mounted on top, i was pretty much halfway through the series, so i just kept the design.
- Notice the color change from a red to a reddish brown.
- The whole character lost some of it's "mechanic-ness" but gained alot more fluidity in the style.
- The eyes don't bend as awkwardly as the first one, and the teeth changed from an underbite to an overbite.
Also, here are the Ninja Club members. (Pretty interesting art style actually..)
The only way to really tell them apart from one another, is by the triangle-ish shape on their chest, which changes color with each member. The yellow one on top is called "X Ninja", the one guy who replaces Clank. That's why he says: "Good Question, Maxymilian, i never lose." (Now that's an interesting way to write Maximilian..)
So here comes my question to you guys, my fellow Ratchet And Clank Lovers :
Would you like me to post the full, scanned comics here? It's quite alot of work, and if there's nobody that really wants to see it, i don't think it's worth it. I would also have to translate them, since they're all in German. And if you really want me to upload them, should i make a new thread, and under what category? I mean.. it technically is Ratchet And Clank UYA, right?
