I sketched this out a few weeks ago and didn’t like it, then suddenly changed my mind today.  Not enough to finish it but… yeah.  Slapped some colour on and decided to upload.

I’ve been drawing so many pretty pictures of Kay lately while Alice gets all my thoughtful/melancholy/sentimental art.  Felt I owed my number 1 gal a new cute picture, and also felt like playing around a little bit with my style just slightly.

This didn’t come out quite as I hoped, namely colour-wise, but still pretty happy with it.  Drew it while listening to this new band discovery of mine.  As a final fun fact, I decided to give drawing at lower resolution a try after reading some advice about it from one of my fave artists, Robaato.  I’m kind of indifferent on it because it… pretty much made no difference lol.  Still needed to refine my lines and stuff in the same way I normally do.  But still, kind of cool that this was drawn pretty much at the size seen on dA/pixiv (and here if you left click then right click and view image to enlarge) from start to finish.

Glo, another of fernal-red's characters from his comic Cheesecake Odyssey!

He uploaded a new pic of her on his tumblr earlier on and it inspired me for some reason.  She was super fun to draw.

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.
