Here it is! The rvb meme. It took me a while -_-
Panel1: I'm Jameson. I remember getting a friend in college to burn me rvb episodes on disks because my computer was too slow to stream them. Oh the old days...
Panel2: I'm really rather ambiguous which side I like... but I pick red because I'm such a Sarge fan.
Panel3: I'm such a Sarge fan.
If I'm going to be specific though, I fell in love with Sarge back when he was eccentric but pretty smart. He was the guy who could make a cyborg out of a Simmons and a Fax machine but couldn't fix his own car. I liked that Sarge. He wasn't so stupid. Good thing is in Season8 it looks like we get him back for a little while at least
Panel4: There are lots of characters I honestly don't care about... and I could pick someone like South because she's a backstabber, but she's got history that I find interesting. Sister just seems... well let's face it - she's a whore. That scores her barely lower than South on my character list. Although jokes at her expense are pretty funny most the time.
Panel5: I actually finally bought the Trocadero album in prep for season8. My favorite song is "No one"
Panel6: This moment gave me such fits of amazment glee and wonder I was compelled to share. I decided right then that I was going to take my two friends ~newtypeshadow
, girls who had never played Halo in their lives, and force them to watch all five seasons of RvB just to get to Reconstruction so they could see THAT SCENE. That scene bred two new RvB fans because I was compelled with a will other than my own to let them experience the rush I experienced the minute this happened. Thankfully they've not kept up to date past Recreation because the events of S08ep03 are giving me the same kinda compulsion.
Panel8: Master Chief (in the design of my comic Company0051 (shameless plug: [link]
) ) interacting with one member of the blue team and one of the red. I think this would make a fun side comic sometime maybe? I'd need to think of some jokes first, but designing MC's face is what inspired me to design the RvB faces... no reason why I shouldn't maroon him on some other dirtclod in space for the sake of my own amusement ^^
Panel9: He'd make me do things I didn't want to do... I'd never kick puppies.
Panel10: Battle of the Bands! I had this idea in my head before I decided to do the meme and thought "why not apply"? There are so many characters though that I drew it on a normal sized canvas and copy/pasted. Here's the original: [link]
Panel11: After all the work on panel 10 I didn't feel like arting anymore. So we have shameless tracing. I used my favorite RvB quote (or at least my fav Sarge quote since I used my favorite quote up top in the Fav Scene panel) on a promo design I did for the Red Team over at roosterteeth so I traced the same body position and drew my face on top of it really sloppy. I also corrected the quote since it's wrong over here: [link]
So there's that I guess. It was fun, i'm glad to finally post it. I've got a couple more memes sitting around to eventually work on but I think I should try do some real art first eh? Like stuff I get paid for ><
