Just a little something or rather.  I really really couldn’t decide whether to hard or soft shade this so I might go back and do a hard shaded version too later.

So I feel I’ve been making decent strides lately in reducing my same-face-syndrome in my fanart, but it’s pretty easy to come up with unique faces for those by borrowing elements from the art style of the character’s origin.  Meanwhile I never know what to do with my own characters because I have to come up with their faces on my own.

Anyway decided to give myself a little challenge here.  Alice’s face is unchanged from how I normally draw it, but the rest of the characters were drawn with Alice underneath them as a guide on what NOT to draw so to speak.  Venus had no changes, I’m happy with her design.  Polly doesn’t look enough like Polly so I’m not happy with her.  Her face is okay but I dunno, think I did her hair a little too short/not fluffy enough.  Rani had only a couple of minor changes.  Chrysan went against her usual style of me drawing her quite rounded and cute by giving her a slightly longer face and more defined nose to draw some more similarities to her brother Professor Chin.  I like how she came out but I certainly prefer her previous look.  Laura had the most drastic overhaul, and half of it is hidden by her new hairstyle.  I feel she’s deserved a better hairstyle for a while.  Her current fringe is so boring and is too similar to Alice’s original hairstyle.  Laura had similar eyeshape to Alice previously, but I tended to always draw her with a slightly cocky “constantly pleased with herself for some reason” angry eyebrows-but-not-actually-angry expression as a trademark look for her.  I applied that expression directly into her eye shape here.  She also has blunter ends to her eyebrows than Alice and I gave her a slightly pointier chin.  Overall I like this design for her, I feel it captures her energy at a little more.

Gonna admit, I’m kind of in an awkward place at the moment where I still get the occasional person saying I give everyone the same face despite my best efforts and I just dunno how much further I can go without going full western cartoon style and abandoning cuteness for the sake of diversity.  I’m still just a tad too much a fan of anime-esque styles to make that jump.

Besties.

The thought of translating such a chibified anime into my own style was pretty daunting but I actually really feel like I got them spot on here.

Lucky Star was a nice show.  In terms of waifus you could say these two are old flames of mine.

ffeelicks suggested I draw this one-off gal again.  Guess she’s a two-off girl now until further notice.

Just a doodle inspired by eating dark chocolate orange rice cakes in jammies at 1am and watching the rain outside.  Don’t tell Mollfie I was eating her ricecakes.

A little bit early for Fanart Friday but whateveeeer.  This is Demi from Cloudbuilt, a fairly cool indie 3D platformer with a focus on parkour and speedrunning (but fairly enjoyable just to casually play through too).  I actually first played it at MCM just randomly and was a little intrigued by it there.  When it reappeared in my life via the Steam Sale it became a no brainer to grab it.  It is a ridiculously hard game but I sure felt good just about scraping through to every ending as a result, though no way I’d have the patience to get into the speedrunning scene.  One of the final levels took me through a good 50+ lives.

But my thoughts on the game aside, Demi has a super cool design and I loved the soundtrack, and since I was desperate to draw the former while listening to the latter, huzzah, early Friday Fanart results.  I’d like to draw a more dynamic pic of her some day perhaps, but I can never do such a thing with armour-clad/robotty characters the first time I draw them.
