The Necro Critic


Fanart Showcase

Posted on February 24, 2017 at 9:45 PM

Sorry my next video is taking so long. Between reshoots, scheduling, and general technical BS, it's taking a lot longer than I thought (I friggin' hate doing late holiday specials). However, you guys have been very patient with me, so here's a little chunk of fan appreciation to tide you over for a bit. Over the years of doing these videos, people have done fanart of me. I figured it might be nice to showcase some of them for everyone to see. So without further ado, let's get started. (Note: All of these pictures link to their respective artists' pages)

I like this one a lot. It's cool, sexy, and somewhat anime-esque. I especially love the pose that just seems to say, "I'm awesome and I know it."

I'm not gonna lie. This one is straight-up adorable.

Jesus Christ, that chin...

So, there's actually a story behind this one. Apparently someone commissioned one of my college friends to draw this one, but never paid for it. Because she never got the money from them, she wasn't going to upload it, but decided to anyway because she thought I would appreciate it. Guys, don't be like that jackass. Pay for your commissions.

This is a very impressive vector. Although I'm not sure how to feel about the fact that people apparently really want to see me as a pony.

So, ever since that gag video where I accused the Nostalgia Critic of ripping me off via time machine, a very common theme in my fanart is the two of us going against each other. This one seems a little one-sided, though.

I really like how this one outlined my eyes under the shades. Fun Fact: Sunglasses give a +10 Bonus in staring contests. Also, Lindsay Ellis (formerly The Nostalgia Chick) is in there for good measure. Why not? We're both Johnson City natives.

LEGOs. Because why not?

This one looks kinda like an action movie shot.

Now there's a team-up for a good cause.

Until I post my Santa Clause 3 review, let's just keep pretending it's still Christmas. It's slightly less sad that way. I really like the style of this one. It's simplistic, but cute. This artist also did a random comic where the three of us, along with the Angry Video Game Nerd, start fighting for silly reasons.

Now this one isn't actually fan art of me per se. But the artist clearly credited me as a design inspiration for their Rise of the Guardians OC. I just think it's really cool that I was able to inspire something like that.

And that about wraps it up. If you have any fanart of any kind you'd like to share, send it my way, and I might feature you in another one of these showcases when the time comes. Until then, thank you guys for being some of the greatest fans a guy like me could ask for.

Don't worry, we can wait.

There is a proverb here in Sweden: "Den som väntar på något gott, väntar aldrig för länge." and litterally it means: "The one who waits for something good, never waits for too long." I/we can wait, your videos are worth the waiting.

Hey Necro, it's cool, stuff happens, gotta roll with the punches. We've weathered the storm before, and the video will be awesome when it's ready, no sense rushing it out the door when it's not complete. Take your time.

Fanart is always pretty cool, I remember seeing the first one a while ago, and I agree, it's pretty cool, probably my favorite. I also really like the Felix the Cat one, gotta put aside your differences for the greater good sometimes. The pony ones are kind of odd, but don't you like My Little Pony? You had a segway during the London Assignment review where you were watching it.

I didn't know Lindsay was from Johnson City, though, that's kinda neat. I always felt like she was more from the big city areas like maybe Knoxville, Nashville, or Memphis. Maybe kind of a personal question but did you know her from school or anything? Kind of a small world kind of thing that put two NCs from the same place, even weirder if Doug was also from there, and Johnson City just spawns all the NCs. But I really doubt that Doug is from Tennessee too, he doesn't really have that presence.

Anyway, as always, I'll be excited whenever you make new posts, be they videos, fanarts, blog posts, whatever. Looks like the e-mail notifications are working again, maybe just a fluke that I didn't get a notification when you posted The Santa Clause 2. I'm always pretty happy when I see that in my inbox, it's like a Christmas present no matter what day of the year it is. Stay awesome, Necro.
