Look at me all fancy with the PNG files and junk! This was just going to be a small sketch, but I got carried away. Trying something new with the eyes. Not really crazy about them, and Xion’s face really doesn’t look as nice as I thought. Back to the drawing board!
Because sometimes you need to draw some kid dressed as an elf.
I haven’t drawn Melvina since the summer. She’s a character in that Digimon comic that I need to get off my lazy rear and finish writing. Her braids kinda look like dog ears right now, but only because I’m trying to find the simplest yet most effective way to draw them. Just enjoy a goof in an elf hat.
Finals ended two days ago but I keep wondering if I have an exam to study for. At least now I have time to toss Christmas all over this place.
Enjoy Santa Monroe! Somehow I’m not tired of this punk. As always opinions are greatly appreciated.
Edit: His eyes were killing me. I changed them a bit.
Rev up those candy canes! I found a style that I like!
No more whiney mopey! Found a simple thing that a like. Gonna spit out some Holiday Cheer later on.
A friend showed me this video and I must say that it’s absolutely fantastic! The amount of effort put into this, the unique style, the beautiful colors and amazing motion is all just so breath takingly wonderful! Personally, I am not a fan of Ke$ha, but this video was so fantastic that I stopped caring who was singing. This is a bit of an odd request, but I want as many people as possible to watch this. If you could show this video to a few people you know I would be very happy. The artist is extremely talented, and deserves as many accolades as possible. Thank you so much, sorry for interrupting whatever you were doing, and have a nice day.
Still trying to figure out this simplification thing. It’s a little less nerve racking than it was before. Gonna work on this and practice drawing arms and legs, too. Those are three things that keep killing me. Enjoy uber simple Monroe.
He’s attention hungry and deathly afraid of being forgotten.
Still working on everything. Style is still too complex, but honestly I’d like to play with it some more. Is it even a style or just a rehash of the other stuff I did? Kinda just want to go back to doing Christmas stuff. No pain no gain I guess. Gotta crack eggs before making omelettes and all those other cliches.
Finals and projects. I need to work on my time management. May or may not continue the Christmas merriment Saturday or next Saturday. No one can stop the Christmas train!
Got some useful constructive criticism today in regards to my style. Turns out I don’t really have one yet, and it’s kinda making some of my chars look generic. Gotta try simplifying things right now because my skill level isn’t where I want it to be yet. Tried looking at cartoons from 60s and 70s ads for style inspiration. Now I want to know what you think. Compared to how Mu/ Monroe/ what’s-his-face looked before, does he now look a little less generic? Please give me your opinions and suggestions, please!
I’m gonna try to upload a Christmasy pic every day until the 25. Enjoy this WIP. Gonna make it look all nice and fancy for tomorrow.
