Sketched a Roxy, quickly colored it. Should be working on other things.
Yay for sass!
Ba-boom. Here's Roxy. My favorite female character of yours, thus far.
She's looking mighty fine, here! Looks like she gained a few pounds, but it looks great on her!
Hehe, excellent job on making her expression. Her ears are fun to look at for some odd reason.
It's great to see a Roxy pic come from you again.
Wait, I just realized something...
You just submitted something in the early afternoon.*shot*
Thanks! She did indeed get a bit thicker, I think it looks better on her and I'm trying to avoid making my female character complete toothpicks, it just doesn't look natural or all that flattering.
It's been a while since I drew her so I figured I'd make a sketch of her.
And yeah, I was up all night
Well, the trick is remembering that all women are built differently, whether they are a little lighter or a little heavier. I noticed a type of trend on dA. Thinner women tend to make female characters that resemble their own body shape, and so do heavier women. It's actually very uncreative and unoriginal to make characters based off the artist's own characteristics. I myself, try to make female characters (and males) different shapes, sizes, and orgins. Some are tall, some or short, some thin, some chubby... The list goes on and on. There are so many possibilities, it's unreal. I also notice that there seems to be a slight discrimination against thinner women around here, as well as chubbier women. It's almost as if thin women are percieved to be conceited, selfesh, bimbos or something. But that's a different opinion of mine altogether.
I guess all I'm saying that, it's okay to make "toothpick" females, just like it's okay to make females with more weight on them. I'm sure that you have no problem making thin males, right?
Oh I agree with you completely. I personally just don't like making super-skinny females that still manage to have big breasts and curves because that's just not possible. I don't mind drawing just a regular skinny girl though. I try to give at least a little variety with my three female characters, Roxy is curvy and voluptuous, Rosemary is kinda chubby and pear shaped (need to draw her redesign), and Kirie is athletic and muscular (again need to draw her).
And I have no problem drawing skinny guys, Nova's supposed to be pretty thin because he deals with weight issues.
Yeah, you're right. Most women are not (naturally) built that way. The variety in your characters are really great, by the way.
Oh, and wasn't trying to attack you, or accuse you of anything, if I sounded that way, I do apologize.
Love this pic. Always was a sucker for the sketch look, among other things ... Ahem. Anyway Pics like these are the reason I followed you in the first place. Keep it up you magnificent skunk you.
PS: I can totally relate to doing art instead of what I'm supposed to be doing, but depending on your perspective which one is more important?
Thank-you very much! I like to stray from my more polished style from time to time, it keeps things interesting.
Honestly, unless you have a deadline, do what you want to do. You cannot force creativity and motivation.
