Retro Shakedown by Mirz123 Retro Shakedown by Mirz123
This is my entry for the Emoticon Tournament. Honestly, the competition is so stiff, I wasn't going to even bother. But I have 2 more VP NaNoEmos left and I promised myself I would finish that out, so I decided to do this. It totally pales in comparison to all of the other entries, so I don't plan to advance to the next round (which is probably a blessing...LOL). Tournament hosted by =Web5teR

This is also my entry for the June EMTC. The theme is "stock." I used two pieces of stock when creating this piece. First I used a stock rendering of Al Capone's car to create the mobster car. Second, I used stock of a tommy gun to create the one the mobster is holding. Car - Tommy Gun

The car took me the longest to do. But those buildings were pretty time-consuming, as well. I wanted to make sure I did them in a 1920s styling, so had to study up on architecture of the period.

Not totally happy with it, but it will do.

Yeah, I looked at a ton of pictures for the buildings, too. But none of them were formal stock, so I didn't list them. :D

I love pixelling cars. No clue why.

Yeah, I love telling stories with my art and emotes are so much fun to use. I'm sure there is a short story at least in this piece. <3
