To be honest, I thought it was something completely different when I first looked at it. And by different, I mean NSFW.

My miis are mostly original, with a few that are inspired by or altered renditions of other artist's designs, such as Mr. Tip.

Hey everyone, and Happy Thanksgiving!

I haven't logged in a few weeks, but I've been super busy making a lot of art (which is a good thing for me, since I rarely get the chance to anymore). However, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, and since I've really kept everyone up to date with my artistic endeavors, I recently entered an art contest on Cracked.com that was Thanksgiving themed, and it turns out one of my entries won! I did put a lot of effort into making them, and I tried to think outside the box and get creative within the boundaries I was given, but I think the end result turned out great. Anywho, You can see the results in the following link:
http://www.cracked.com/photoshop_95_25-hand-print-art-projects-way-more-badass-than-turkey/

I'm hoping I can use the prize money to help pay off some money I owe on my car for recent repairs, but more importantly, this can help me get my name out there and perhaps get some exposure. If anything, it would look good on an art resume, so hopefully this can lead to bigger and better things like illustration jobs or something in the gaming industry, since I have a story I'd love to see published someday.

I figured some of you good folks wanted to know what I've been up to, so aside from this, there's a much bigger animated project I'm working on that has a much bigger prize, so wish me luck!

Adios for now! ;)

Indeed, I've had similar run-ins with people and gamers in my town. Most people I tell (people who know me at least) about my mii creations believe me right away, since I am a notable artist in my area and they probably don't doubt my capabilities. However, I have met some people in places such as Gamestop who didn't believe that I am THE Bobby Bobby on Check Mii out, but granted this was back when I was #1 on the Top artisans list, so I guess it could be hard to believe at the time. Nevertheless, it does seem strange how people don't seem to think REAL artists created all the unique mii designs, but alas, such is the havoc and confusion that all the rampant copying has created.

I am puzzled about the recent contest themes they've come up with, since they are both Star Wars themed. Is Nintendo in cahoots with Lucasarts over some secret new lightsaber game or something? It is very strange to see contest themes of this nature esspecially since all previous contests were generic. I mean, this is STAR WARS after all, and I don't think Nintendo is just doing this for fun. There must be some mutual promotion going on somewhere behind the scenes, and would bet my life on it.

Anyways, I did notice that those particular Star Wars Miis (Luke & Yoda) miraculously floated into my top ten. I guess it's time for another mii and name change to let the copying commence! :D

I follow most of the steps you've got listed. My basic photo shoot consists of getting some sort of large backdrop such as a big blanket to put behind me (since there is a window behind me that causes an awful glare to ruin the picture), and then setting my camera settings to reduce scan lines. As far as camera settings go, I typically have success just adjusting the focus to a longer distance than I am from my TV. I usually take my pictures from less than a meter away, but a 7 meter focus seems to do the trick in reducing scan lines. Next, I take a number of pictures until I get a really good shot, since 4 out of every 5 pictures seems to have a flaw. I don't use a tripod, so most of the time the issue is with taking a level photograph.



However Once I've got a good photo, I open up a photo editor to do some color correction, cropping and artifact elimination. For leveling my mii, I usually rely of the Skew transform or liquify tools. I'm probably not as meticulous as you are Andy, but I'm usually satisfied if it LOOKS level to me, and I don't usually bother with measurements or anything like that. In fact, in some of my earlier pictures you can tell I didn't take as much care in leveling my photos, and it shows. Now I always make sure to skewer the photo to compensate for the weird angles from my CRT TV, so hopefully my more recent pictures don't look as bad as some of my older ones.

For me, when I begin to make a mii, my first priority is to nail the most distinct feature of a given character. then I slowly work backwards as traits become less and less important, until I eventually find myself conflicted over trivial last minute touches that can make or break the design. Most of the time for me, it's the mole that gives me the most problems concerning placement, and its usually what I put on last on a mii. This isn't always the case, as sometimes the most distinctive feature of as mii will involve use of the mole. Nevertheless, the biggest challenge of making any mii is seeing how good of a design you can come up with with the limited options you have.

I HATE the new logo. It just looks and feels so cheap and uninspired. And yes, I feel Pepsi is trying to latch onto Obama's fanbase in trying to replicate a similar design, and I've even seen commercials where they were using the "Yes we can" slogan along with the new logo, and it makes me sick to my stomach. That being said, I don't think the new logo has the same appeal to me as the old one did. The original logo felt so much more powerful and refreshing, and probably had a much bigger influence on me buying a soda because the old label designs had a more gripping and refreshing look to them. They've even cheapened the look of Sierra mist to look like some cheap knock-off dollar store soda.

But as hideous as I find the new Pepsi logo, it is NOWHERE NEAR as stupid as Mountain Dew being rebranded as "mtn dew". Just like they're trying to reach out to young Obama fans, I feel this new (and retarded) mtn dew is catering to the teeny bopper text messaging generation who have a 1.2 GPA and type sentences such as

"OMG i no wut u mean, idk y ppl R so stpd!"

Don't get me wrong. I love the taste of Pepsi and I prefer it over the taste of Coke, but in light of these disastrous new designs, I have no choice but to boycott Pepsi until they get their act together and bring their image back to its former glory. Until then, I'm sticking with RC cola and Faygo.

I don't think Chud should have the privilege to submit miis to any website venue, since his Check mii out counterpart consists of nothing but copies.  Any "alterations" you may think he has made to a given mii design are the product of poor copying skills.  He has copied dozens of popular miis from around here and Miicharacters.com, and I even think the Mona Lisa he copied from me has surpassed my original's overall popularity on CMO. 

As for my name on CMO, I made some alterations to the Iron Man Mii before I resubmitted him as my avatar, but forgot to change the name to "BobbyBobby".  I'll probably correct it within the next day or so.

Speaking of purple, this reminds me of how I made Donnatello.  Could you imagine the possibilites if the mii channel allowed the use of unnaturalk skin and hair colors?

Yeah, it appears  there is only one touch screen as usual, but even so I think it will be fun to see what more they can do with this system innovation wise.  I wonder if they'll release a separate line of exclusive games for this system, or if they'll just release one version that is playable on old and new systems, just has added bonuses on the DSi (like how you could play early GBC games on B&W gameboy, but lacking in features).  As for the lack of GBA slot, it doesn't bother me much, since I'm not a fan of Guitar Hero DS, don't use the rumble pak, and rarely play GBA games besides Warioware Twisted, which is my favorite GBA game and will be missed.  I guess we wil; have to wait and see about what this thing is really capable of.

Just finished looking at IGN's live blog from Nintendo's Tokyo conference.  Not only was a new DS announced, but A lot of neat looking games were shown as well. My favorite is definitely a revival of Punch-out.  Anyways, go see for yourself, you may find something you like!

Very Well done!  And I don't believe this is a copy.  I have a daffy duck mii as well, and on check mii out I often look at how many copies there are of my works, and when I click "Call friends" on my daffy, I don't believe I've seen a mii that looks like this.  I even think this is perhaps the best Daffy Mii yet.

Finally free from that dead-end Factory job, I've had more time to devote to my artwork.  Two months later, I've finally completed My most challenging interlocking drawing thus far.  To see it fully, you may have to push F11 on your keyboard to enable full screen.

Yeah, they don't give out prizes, which is a bummer because I wouldn't mind some Wii points or something like that.  Then again, Most of my Wii memory is already filled up anyways so I guess it would be kind of pointless.  At the very least, I was expecting the Mona Lisa to become my top ranked mii, but I suppose the downloads from the contest channel don't affect the real miis score.  It's now sitting content in the #5 spot.

Thank you.  I don't offically win anything that I know of.  I'll probably never fare that well again I'm affraid.  Unless there's a contest that really piques my interest. 


That being said, This will be moved to the Art of mii forum since it would probably fit there better.

Ah, my mistake.  I must've been distracted by the TV while typing.  But yes, as I mentioned, The rankings don't seem to update for me until around 5 am.  Then again, I did just have a replacement wii sent back for the Smash Brothers repair thing, so maybe my system clock is wrong or something.  I do plan to check after I type this, so hopefully this will all make sense to me.

This looks great, but Is this design even possible?  By the looks of it, it looks like you used two sets of eyebrows (one for sideburns, and one for horn highlight), and I can't quite fathom how you made the eyes without using yet another set of eyebrows, and it looks like you used the REAL eyes for some sort of hair extensions. I could be mistaken, but it looks as if there are too many duplicates of mii parts for this mii to even be possible.  Perhaps I'd be less skeptical if I saw it on Check Mii out or something...

2 Things about Bobby's Win:



I find it awesome that his was the ONLY one of its kind in the Top 50.



Waiting to post that was a great strategic move, cause look at how many copies have spawned from that.



He knows how to play the CMO Game.
Indeed I am glad I waited to submit it, but it still felt risky that I uploaded it here not even an hour after the contest submission period was over. I didn't think about the possibility of submission periods being time-zone specific, and whether or not there was still a window of opportunity for copiers. In the end though, I guess it did work out since no one else seemed to have submitted a canvas version. Boy, I would've hated to see someone like C.H.U.D. steal it before the contest was over.

I don't think that's the case since I didn't submit it when the mole was on the left. The only thing I changed in my resubmission was the facial wrinkles to make the background. Originally, I used the dark eye sockets, but felt the wrinkles looked better. I have no explanation as to why the mole was moved.

First, I would like to say thanks to all of you for your support of my Mona Lisa Contest Submission.   Hopefully people on CMO will take notice of it in the results page and acknowledge me as its original creator, especially since some artisan thieves have already copied it and are claiming it as their own. 

That being said, I was actually quite surprised it performed so well.  But what surprised me more, however, was that the Mona Lisa mii displayed on the contest results  page varied slightly from my original Submission.  I noticed right away that the mole I had originally placed on the right side of the mii was instead moved to the left.  I thought this was peculiar, since I did actually tinker with the idea of having the mole on the left side of the mii to make her hands look better "folded", but I concluded that the look of the hands shouldn't be compromised by improper placement. 

I tried to make this canvas mii appear as faithful to the original as I could, and you can see for yourself in the real painting that her hands are positioned towards the right side of her body (which would be our left).  My choice to move the mole to the right gave the illusion that her makeshift hands were placed asymmetrically towards the left like in the original painting.  However, I guess Someone at Nintendo  felt they needed to take creative liberty with my design and move the mole to the opposite side to give the hands a more proper "folded" appearance, at the expense of accurate positioning. 
To better get an idea of what I'm talking about, compare the winning contest mii to the mii artisan avatar I use on Check mii out.  You'll see a clear difference in the two. 

Now I know in Nintendo's policy they state that they can alter or remove a mii without notice, but I have to wonder why this was done.  I felt the design was fine and actually better looking the way it was.  I can't think of any benefit altering my design would have in the long run.  I'm willing to bet that the mii that can be imported in the contest results page is different than the one I have in my artisan top-10.  I'm also guessing that since it is a different design, importing it from the contest page won't help raise the rank of the real mii.  Even so, the whole situation is perplexing.  Any  thoughts?

I really do. I mean, I loved the original Xbox, and I still play it to this day, but one of the reasons I was drawn to it was because it had the most bang for your buck. I loved that it had a built-in hard drive are the graphics were and still are incredible. PS2 on the other hand was a complete joke, and it really bugged me that memory cards cost so much and you had to pay extra for a multitap in order to play four-player games. To add insult to injury, the bulk of what was considered the best of PS2's library consisted of long-winded, story heavy uninteresting Japanese Action / RPG titles that didn't appeal to me at all. The nail in the coffin for me though, was the abyssmal hardware failures that plagued so many PS2s with my very first Phat PS2 giving up the ghost not even a year after purchasing it. I eventually concluded that this was the primary reason there are so many PS2s on the market, because people were stupid enough to buy replacements for their broken ones. For many years aterwards, I felt an intense hatred toward Sony and I subsequently boycotted their products. Of course, this all looks like nothing compared to how the tables have turned with this new generation of consoles.

I find it funny now that Microsoft seems to be taking the exact path that Sony did last generation. That being overpriced, faulty hardware and critical accessories you have to pay extra for. And let us not forget the overabundant library that caters to mainly one demograph (Angsty adolescents hooked on violent shooters), so in the end Microsoft has become the very enemy it was trying to defeat. I find it yet more humourous that the most consistantly defunct systems always seem to sell the most, and This generation sees Microsoft as the big overrated Game giant that is alienating loyal gamers.


I never thought I'd see the day where I would prefer a Sony console over an Xbox, but the PS3 seems like a much more logical choice to me in terms of "bang for your buck" this generation. And the Wii is still standing strong in the number 1 spot for me, not to mention both PS3 AND Wii offer FREE online multiplayer. So to make a long story short, 360 can go to hell for all I care.

I finally got my Wii back from Nintendo, so I will now at last be capable of playing some of you folks in Brawl.  My FC is 4081-5244-8188, so Anyone who is available on this website who is not yet on my friends list, I will be making space to register new contacts in my wii address book.  Ideally, I would love to have Miiplaza frequent users to be on my list, so it would be much more common to face off in a nice battle every now and then from people I'm familiar with.  Anyone interested in challenging should feel free to contaact me.

Hey now, I DO give out my miis for free, via Mii parade and my Check Mii Out characters. It's custom made-from-scratch miis of real everyday ordinary people I sell online. Not that that has been very successful or anything.
