It's not called the Fortress of RADITUDE for nothing.
So yeah...it's possible I might be a bit crazy for wanting to do an unscheduled double page spread. But...it had to be done. I've been wanting to do a proper interior picture of the Fortress for a long time and Fwishspot was the motivation I needed to finally get it done. I couldn't help but keep adding stuff to it so I thought I'd tear myself away from it and upload it or else I'll still be working on it next year.
I had some ideas about what I wanted to put in there. Gaming tables, a cinema, a kennel for Awesome Mutt...but I consulted with Liss over most of it. Got a list of stuff that would make it a bit more personalised. Also, I had to put in a water slide, Lissbots and slushee machines since I'd already referenced them being there.
There's a mass of stuff taken from the interwebs. I'm too lazy to go get links for it all but I think it's pretty obvious what I drew and what I didn't. Oh, I used an existing image of the Fortress of Solitude for the foundation. Just used it as a rough guide and built on top of it. But yeah...all the board games, the images and logos in the music section, the pictures in the statue gallery, textures for the books and wood panelling, screenshots on the main viewer, screenshots for the tvs, the cinema image and posters, the art in the gallery...so not mine.
The 'Awesome Begins Here' thing is a statue of Radon. AW's home planet.
So here we are. The setting for the final battle. Grab your free slushee and get ready for the Fwishpot conclusion.
I do. I know that Dakt's fandoms rotate. There was a surge of Supernatural there but then it died down and things moved onto Kingdom Hearts again and then that will probably die down and there'll be something else. It all moves in cycles.
I think you know how I feel about this page. FUCKING AMAZING. You are ridic. And cray cray. And one seriously talented sonuvabitch. Also, it has to be said that the person who lives here is pretty freaking rad. -Liss
I have been itching to do a FoR interior for aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages. Ever since the first mention of it I've wanted to draw it's interior. So this was purely self-indulgent. Even if everyone went "This is horrible" I would've gone "Suck it. I don't care. "
But it turned out even better than I imagined. I was just going to have an explosion of rad things in there, but having all those personalised touches made it ever better.
Somehow even the word epic falls short for this! I mean it this place is just so damn cool Question is she willing to rint this place out for mini comic cons? and/or movie nights?
I wish I had one 10th the skill you put into this with back grounds, so I could draw Vel's 30th cen base, sadly I could never do it justice. (it's not as big or as awesome as this place but then I don't think anything could be)
Well I guess it's something to consider...but the location would make it kinda difficult for people to get there. There's no roads or train tracks or airports anywhere near it.
Well I went and got an existing background for reference. That made it easier. I had something to work with. If I was just trying to make something from scratch I think it would've taken a lot longer. It probably would've worked out better because I could've designed it around the content, but using a reference does a lot of the work for you.
okay, Q is gonnna blow the f**K up all of his bases and stay a few night at the fortress of raditude, and y'now just never leave....ever. yeah this is you deviation but 'm asking AW here can i move in with you!? i will not be a hinderance at all, you just tell me what it takes to get in.
there are slurpie machines in evry room, i would never have to not be with a slurpie. i will agree to literally anything if i can just live here....anything....no limits.....i do not care. have i made myself clear enough!?
it's not a scheme! how many times do i have to tell you that before you get it through your birdbrain!! all i want is to be able to relaz after a long day of kung fu training with a slurpie in one hand and a bucket of popcorn in the other inside a giant music room reading comics while having refill being delivered to me by robots, i mean doesn't everybody?
Zomgosh...... Vice needs to break into this place and hang out.... IT'S SO DAMN COOL. It's like... like... a Convention meets Earth-G meets where's Waldo and the best place to hang out EVER!--*pouts* Why don't the villains get anything so cool! Seriously, great stuff.
G, that is a brilliant idea! Get into trouble so AW /has/ to keep her somewhere safe and hidden away... then sneak out and explore... YUSH. This must be done. Thanks, and just think how thrilled AW will be on where I got the idea,.
<3<3<3 Where's Waldo Hero/Nerd stuff.
I think seeing the HQ's at some point would be epic. Maybe some day I'll do a sketch of C.O.R.S.E.T. and T.A.T.A.S.
