Bobbin Threadbare by dmarling Bobbin Threadbare by dmarling
This is the main character of a really awesome old computer game called Loom. If you haven't played it, play it. It rocks. Old and pixellated with funky synth background music. Anyhoo, Bobbin is one of the coolest characters of all time. I'm probably gonna have to have someone like him in one of my stories someday. By the way: if you look under his hood, you'll dissolve and scream and get sucked into the emptiness. So don't. It makes Bobbin feel guilty.

Acrylics.

Incredible picture! Bobbin eyes have a hypnotic effect on me. Hmm, still speak the truth - the eye is the mirror of the soul.

You drew Bobbin pretty great with those cool details on every part of the picture, even his eyes.

That game was freaking awesome. They need to try to revamp that game. Keep the main concept and plot, but maybe add in the sequels they wanted to make. Throw it all together and you get a really badass game that anyone would want, regardless of console.

Maybe if they found a way to format it to the Wii, then they can keep the point-and-click and there's no way in hell they shouldn't. If you remember that old children's game called Freddy Fish, then you should know they formatted it to the Wii.

OH MY GOD, LOOM!!!!
One of those games nobody i ever talk to remembers, but my family and i loved.
Good ol' Bobbin. Next you should draw Cygna - cloaked AND crow version.
Or Rusty when he gets upset - i LOVED the faces and facial expressions for the characters in that game!
Thank you for this trip back and the realization that SOMEONE else knows this game!

*grins* There probably won't be any more Loom fanart forthcoming, but it is always good to hear from other fans.

Wow, so much nostalgia!
I loved that game!
It was way too short though :( but still so very worth it.
They'll never make games like that again...

OMG LOOM! I never thought fanart for this would exist!

I'd love to see you do the Loom itself or a landscape of Loom Island or something... :)

LOOM! God this is still my favourite game off all time. First thing I installed on my new computer? DOS emulator so I could play this.

Do you have the audio tape that came with the first release? It gives background info on the world in the game. It's great stuff! There is also a version that is voiced. Both are worth a look if you like the game.

Anyway, great picture! You really made it feel like the game with the sparkles and highlights as well as his pose.

No, I don't have the tape but I wish I did! Still, I can probably download the sound file online somewhere now, if I look. :D

I'm so glad people still remember this awesome game!
