Hey there people of today and robots of tomorrow!
It's me, CK!
As a lot of you guys know, AlphaBeta90 and I get a lot of good ideas from RPing on Steam. This is one of them. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that out of the two of us I was the only one who had drawn all the Knights of the KST together as a group. So, I wanted him to draw them together as a team. He agreed, but only if I drew the Confederates of Doom, which I agreed to do. So together the plan was to have the two teams running towards each other into battle. But then Arkham Origins came out. Both of us were blown away by how awesome this game was. I was surprised that the game took place on Christmas Eve, since I figured even Batman would've taken that night off.
Shows how much I know.
Seeing how that was a good idea though, I mixed our arttrade up a bit and told SIM-N the theme of the arttrade was now Christmas themed. They'd be running in the snow, Christmas lights around them, something like that. I drew my end with the Holidays in mind and tried to make the villains seem all holly in jolly, in their own twisted ways. N1 and T1 got a minty makeover, Hydrahk got a scarf from Terra, K'Sav got an upgrade, the whole burrito. Then I decided to give AB a challenge and make the setting the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in front of the store.
So I posted my end on dA, and he liked it. He then did his side of the arttrade, and I gave him a few ideas for what he could do. ERN-E is very traditional during the Holidays, since he's a die hard New Yorker so he gets a Santa hat. 102 got an upgrade and some Holiday Knight style weapons, LASS-E and WALL-G go crazy, and EMIL-E gets a light whip and a cute elf outfit. As well as a new haircut, which I had been thinking about doing for a while. It looked awesome! I was especially impressed by how well my friend did the background. I tried to challenge him, he blew that challenge out of the water as usual.
Then I combined our two pics and they look pretty well together. So enjoy, and have a Happy Holidays!
