Citizens of Underworld  by ndburke Citizens of Underworld  by ndburke
Hey check it out, it's my first official Undertale fanart piece. My goal here was to do something a little different with these characters. In a way Undertale is a bit like Jim Henson, or 90's Tim Burton: the Monsters are an allegory for quirkiness and diversity. They seem dangerous, but in truth the way you get the *best ending* is by dodging around their rough exterior, figuring them out, and embracing them for who they are. Naturally, my style borrows a lot from Henson and early Burton, so I felt this drawing simply had to be made.

Bit of a story as to why the Amalgamates didn't end up in this one. I was a cute little cinnamon roll that religiously swore off the 'Fight' option until I absolutely had to. This meant that when I first fought Asgore, I thought you had to get it in the very center. Even after talking to him and eating Goat-mom's cooking in front of him, I was getting my ass handed to me. After a while I got so embarrassed and frustrated that I started this piece prematurely, thinking I had seen every major monster in the game. Likewise though, I'm already in the process of finishing a separate piece just for the Amalgamates, and I may make one dedicated to the many forms of 'Flowey/Asriel' as well.

Drawn by hand initially with pencil, then inked with Fabre Castle and Sakura felt-tip pens.

And now to Hashtag All-the-things. Let me know what you guys think, and if you want to see more Undertale stuff from me in this style.

I have *heave* been looking for this drawing for *gasp* an hour...
I found it once while scrolling though the Undertale section of DeviantArt but (sadly) forgot to favorite it. Once I had realized my mistake I had to go BACK through the PAGES of art before FINALLY finding it once again X,D

There's definitely a Jim Henson/Tim Burton vibe you've got going.  I like it!
