It has been since May 30th of 2013 that I was pondering about the possibility of making some Battlefield 3™ characters inspired by something which was relatively new to me at that time.....and that new thing was an online series called “Uncle Dolan”. You can learn more about it here:knowyourmeme.com/memes/dolan
This all turned out to be quite a challenge for me, and I seriously think I was “doing it wrong”. I used GIMP, instead of MS Paint; each character was made on a 350x350 image. Also, due to my long habit of trying to be neat about things, I feel like I’ve lost the ability to create crude, rudimentary works of art. So, in conclusion, these characters feel too “neat” to serve purposes relative to the Uncle Dolan series. But you can do whatever you want with them if you choose to make a video with them.
I wanted to mention for the record that the “Supprot” one happened to be the most challenging, all on account of trying to make a face for him. I have more than a few “Prototype Face” layers in the original GIMP file I was working with, but in the end I decided to give him the shades and some smirk.
“Asssalt”, “Enjunir”, and “Supprot” were based off of readily-available imagery. “Asssalt” was based off of BF3’s cover soldier. The latter two were based off of images I found on the Battlefield Wikia. But “Recan” ended up being something of a palette-swap of Spoderman; he was the first character I decided to make.
Anyway, in closing, this may not be the end; despite these results, there are some other characters I want to try out, and will release in the future. For now, though, enjoy this for what it’s worth.
