HarshlyCritical by smartguy123
Happy Halloween everyone! :)  :iconhalloweenplz:

In light of the fact that today is Halloween, I'm uploading the completed fan art for my favorite YouTube horror letsplayer, HarshlyCritical. Also, Tuesday was his 26th birthday! Happy late birthday John! I uploaded an incomplete version of this piece Tuesday for his birthday, with just the HC logo, but now I've finished it! All the logos around his HC icon are games he has played on his channel, and are some of my personal favorite playthoughs he has done. My top five are featured in the corners, being Cry of Fear, Alien Isolation, The Cat Lady, DooM 3, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. The very first playthrough of his I ever watched was his DooM 3 playthrough, and since then I've been a loyal "Critical viewer". He plays a bit of everything, but mostly sticks to horror. He's played a lot of good games, and not so good games, over the years, and normally has very intelligent commentary that gives his thoughts on the game. He's a pretty cool guy.  I've learned quite a lot about him over the years. His name is John Wolfe, currently 26 years old. He was homeschooled until college, and pursued a degree in advertising, and currently works as a copywriter in Dallas, Texas, his hometown. He loves horror games, as well as dogs (he's allergic to cats) and is an avid fan of Calvin and Hobbes. He has been on YouTube for about three years, and has a co-op channel on YouTube as well, with his friend "Kravin" who lives in Austin, Texas. He also has a fantastic beard. XD

If you're into horror letsplays and haven't seen him, you should check him out. He's pretty great He's currently playing through alien Isolation and The Evil Within. Happy Halloween everyone! And happy late birthday John! Stay awesome! :)

So because today is HarshlyCritical's birthday (Happy 26th birthday John!) I decided to do a bit of HC fan art. HarshlyCritical is probably my favorite YouTuber and definitely my favorite lets-player. I found him several years ago through his playthrough of DOOM 3, and I've been a loyal "Critical Viewer" ever since. He plays all sorts of games, but the bulk of the games he plays are horror, everything from Amnesia: The Dark Descent to Cry of Fear to Five Nights at Freddy's to Alien Isolation. He's also played some very non-horror games, such as Banjo-Kazooie and King's Quest V and VI. He does it all, and his videos are accompanied by very intelligent commentary. That's why I like him so much. He doesn't make videos to purposefully act scared or surprised, and he gives a detailed analysis (you might say he thinks critically) of the games he plays. He's also really down to earth. Not to mention he has a fantastic beard! Seriously, go check that thing out! He can also be pretty hilarious at times and has some pretty good one-liners and jokes. (These are the jokes people) He works in advertising as a copywriter so he knows how to turn a phrase!

So anyway, I wanted to upload this work in progress tonight since it's his birthday. I had hoped to have it completed but I didn't get around to starting it until today. So far it only features his iconic HC devil logo and his alias under it, which is what appears in the intros to his videos. I'm planning on drawing logos of the games from some of his best playthoughs (IMO) around the main logo. I'd like to fit at least ten in there, maybe twenty, but that might be a bit of a stretch. We'll see!

And again John, happy birthday! Stay awesome! ;)  :party:

Favorite Style of Art: Fan art, but I like all art
Deviant Status: Artist and Art Appreciator

I am mostly an art appreciator but I do love to draw, whether it's a doodle during class or a drawing I work on for days at home. I don't consider myself to be an excellent artist, not at all. I just draw for fun and because I enjoy doing it. Most of my drawings fall into two categories. Art projects I worked on in art camp or art class, and art I do completely for fun. The art I do for fun is mostly fan art, such as drawings of characters from my favorite shows, movies, and video games. Most of my fan art is from the past several years, as I've strarted to draw less and less of it.

I joined DeviantART mostly to look at and comment on the AMAZING artwork that can be found everywhere on this site. Some of this art just completely blows me away. I'm confident that these emerging artists will go great places some day. I also joined to upload some of my works, both fan art and art projects, and see what other artists think of them.

I don't do much on YouTube, mainly like and comment stuff, but here's my channel :…

Also just a quick serious question. Are my watchers out there? I know I haven't been posting a lot of stuff recently, mainly because I've been busy and haven't had a lot of time to sit down and draw something for an hour plus. I've also mostly run out of older things to upload, so I don't have the luxury of pulling something out and uploading it without actually creating it. I have several things planned and I hope to draw and upload them between now and the end of the year. I do art mainly for myself, but it's nice to be able to display it publicly on a site like this. It lets me get feedback and talk with other artists about things we all enjoy and have in common. I don't really care about having a huge following but it would be nice to know that some people keep up with me. If no one looks at my art then what's the point of uploading it? Please leave a quick comment, just so I know I still have people that care about what I upload. Thanks everyone! :)
