Hey everyone!

So this week I’m posting a couple of fan arts I did the past few days.  One is of Teddie from Persona 4 and one is from ToeJam & Earl.

TEDDIE! Persona 4 (Bill Stiernberg)

Teddie! A cute goofball character from Persona 4.

A comic relief character, Teddie is seen flirting with the girls of the Investigation Team at numerous occasions, but fails every time.  Otherwise, he is bubbly and cute and is known to cheer up the mood when investigating the case.

The past weekend I was playing ToeJam & Earl 2, and it’s pretty fun and funky, so I drew those characters (see below).  Afterwards I wanted to do something more RPG-centric, and I’d been wanting to do some Persona 4 fanart for a while.

So I googled “favorite Persona character.”  I found a thread on some forum where people listed their favorite and least favorite Persona characters.  Teddie was, for whatever reason, listed quite a lot as least-favorite!  But why!  He’s so cute!  Anyway that sealed the deal and so I drew Teddie.  I’ll do another Persona pic down the line of a “real” Persona character.

ToeJam & Earl!

These guys are awesome. Alien rappers who crashland on Earth and have to escape back to their home planet of Funkotron? Simply amazing.

So like I said, I played this the other weekend, and it’s quite fun. The sequel I mean. The first TJ&E is some kind of roguelike, with randomly generated levels that look nothing like Earth.  More like floating islands with everything from hula dancers to waddling imp demons chasing you around. It was… meh.

The sequel, Panic on Funkotron, now that game is fun! It’s a great two-player cooperative platformer where you have to find and catch the humans that escaped onto Funkotron with you so you can send them back to earth. I recommend checking it out for the wackiness of it, the humor, and the funktastic soundtrack.

OK hope you like the art for today. I’ll maybe do more “serious” character(s) next week.  We’ll see!
