((OOC: Being without a working monitor gave me some time to work on other things.

Like attempting a new character design style. It's kinda fun to exaggerate features. Should I try more?))

Yeah you should. I think it looks cute, kinda blocky.

Looks pretty good. Angular cartoon styles can be really fun to work with.

((OOC: Felt inspired while gaming on the Wii U a bit and wanted to try something new. It seems to have paid off considering it is a first draft. Glad you all got a kick out of it!

Strangely, I can't seem to recreate that on the computer. Not really sure why... I just can't make a straight line for some reason, even with a tablet.

Mayhaps it's time to bust out that old scanner again.))

Image Okay, before looking at this one, first, make sure you have this playing in your background.

Okay, now open (Note: A few errors are present but it's still sufficient):

After I made this post, I couldn't stop thinking about doing something like this.

Yesss, I am the eternal Weegie.
But yeah, that looks pretty rad, and yeah, I agree, Falcon's things there are also cool. Apparently it's a reference to some anime?? I don't even know, these crazy nerds and their cartoons.

It should be noted that I only did it because the moment I saw the ED, I was like "I think Raxy would like this".

Then the moment she sees it, I could literally feel all the joy radiating from across the state line.

Image I was gonna ask "Why didn't Falc just post this himself?" but I can see that was more of a spur-of-the-moment type thing and Raxy was just too happy not to go ahead with the post.

But yeah, it's so bright and colourful. I love it!

And thanks for the comments on my comparatively garbage piece as well.

Rhythmatic Expectations -- Karate Falcon

Lyrics
Spoiler: click to show
Baby, I'm a broken man
I'm just a shattering storm
Baby, try to find my way
As the lonely shadows swarm

Whoa whoa whoa, I'm just a man
Missing you, please understand
Without you-ou-ou, I'm dying

No, no one will know
How I bear my pain alone
In the end
I choose my solitude
No, I can't go back
To my days of innocence
Can't go back
There is no return

Another cycle of seasons has passed us by and I can't help
I wonder I wonder I wonder just where you are now
I hear from everyone that you are different
And that you are yet more beautiful than before

Whoa whoa

If you say that you are happier now
And that's just the way you feel about everything now
Well then I guess it's just the way
That it is


The light-bulb represents him pushing away good ideas.

Image Testing out Emofuri. I had to use a gif recorder since you can only save up to 4 seconds in the demo version (and I'm not about to pay ¥100,000 a year for this) so I apologize for a lack of background and the bad frame rate.

I mostly traced over the template provided since it looked a ton like Raxy already so I decided to put it here instead of its own thread since I wasn't really drawing my own image.

Here we go.

Image Maybe I was a bit hasty about saying it looked like you. More or less, I think what I mean to say was "With a few adjustments, I could totally make this look like Raxy," which I think I did pretty well. It's still very much a trace, though.

I do like what this thing can do though, so I'm definitely going to try more again in the future.

It's a trace but I do like all the stuff you added and the coloring and things and its also cool to see Raxy in motion like that.

((OOC: Okay, with a new PMD now fully engrossed into my body, I need to get back to sketching again. I've practiced in Art Academy and learned some valuable lessons and I even went ahead and dusted off my old scanner. That's where I am going right now with this.

Alas, I'm not too sure I actually have improved at all. While I've now started to make my own construction shapes, I feel I'm still quite a ways behind before I get somewhere that I'm super duper satisfied.

I dunno, maybe it's because my Art Academy images was basically me copying what I saw in front of me whereas now I'm trying to create images completely from my head so it's harder for me to maintain? Also, is there a more comfortable way to hold onto a drawing tablet? I don't think my lap is ideal but there isn't much room on this desk.

But enough banter. Here's a simple piece that was sketched, scanned, and digitally finished. Since it's been so long, I'm naturally going to start with something I'm already very familiar with.))

((OOC: I refer to this as "Theatre B" in reference to the NPC found in Lively Town in Super. Meowth is not one of the starters in Super, so my current headcannon is that Yours Truly has now retired from the team and has now set up a new business in Lively Town, a Theatre where you are the star by going into difficult dungeons while being filmed.

Because it is a business now and now simple adventuring, a friendly looking attire was needed. Outfit inspired by the fact that the official art for Meowth Theatre has a pair of 3D glasses (probably as a nod that the game is on 3DS) and, well, isn't anyone going to ask me what's with the glasses? Allons-y!

Also attempted to add some age to him and added a small bit of fur "stubble" on the chin. Thought about making the eyes look baggier too, but it looked too old that way.))


((OOC: I tried, I s'pose. I need to practice a bit more, I'd imagine. I really would like to start drawing Fara and Chester at some point.))

I can see improvement. The pose looks like it was drawn more confidently with constructed shapes, so that's a plus. And there's more detail. The only real issue I see is with the joint in the right arm (the one holding the glasses), which is too far from the body to be the shoulder but too close to the body to be an elbow, unless the arm is contorting forward (or maybe backward which works better but the forearm is too long either way). But yeah, there's still improvement.

And on the note of sketching, I should be doing that too.

Yeah, they're way too small to fit over your eyes!
