I havenít cged any humans in a while. And thank GOODNESS the eyes in this pic arenít glued to the camera (like all my others) because I was getting tired of them looking toward the camera. I like natural views, not poses, but my stuff always end up like that. Anyway I just wanted to draw a picture of me with my other selves (and yes, I have 2, not just one) and because my first ID looked somewhat prickly on the outlines. And I wanted to just experiment with new coloring styles (and it really worked!) and Iím proud with the new 2dish look and because I was tired of my drawings always ending up 3d-ish. I love plushies! Another thing to point out, I didnít want to add any shadows or drop shadows underneath my characters because I think it just looks better (and that it would screw the whole picture up).
I decided to try something more detailed with borders so I gave it a shot. Oh yeah and with the hearts in the background, it was because I felt something different this year than last year. Itís the fact that sometimes love doesnít happen to you whenever you want it, you have to wait for the right time for it to happen. Thatís what I believe. I did the hearts using the Bezier curves and I know they look sloppy and all, but then again you gotta understand, each heart is different in its own way, no matter what someone says. Itís life. Life will find its way to the right person someday.
I got this feeling and idea from 2nd hour. I love my people!
