Sam and Spike - humans - new style sort of by oomizuao Sam and Spike - humans - new style sort of by oomizuao
I've experimented a little with how to draw cartoony humans, while keeping them slightly realistic at the same time - though not too realistic. I think I like this style I ended up with.. It's easier to draw, more comfortable to draw, and I like how - as my dear friend ~FaithStarLight commented when she saw these - I can now exaggerate the expressions more without making it look unnatural. :)
I'm still working on the style though, getting more used to it.. But so far it's a fun style to work with, and I think it sort of suits Sam and Spike as well.
So, yeah, I'm curious to hear what you guys think of this? :3

Ah, liker den nye stilen veldig godt :) de er mer....individuelle? unike? det er enklere se personligheten deres ;)
kort sagt....sam virker mer "sam" og spike ser mer ut som "spike" ^^'
Lurer p hvordan de andre karakterene dine ser ut i denne stilen :D

You're right. It does have that more natural look to the expressions. But, I liked the more realistic versions as well. It gave a more sense of "this really happens, so look and be prepared to find" kind of feeling. But experimenting is good! Keep up the great work! :)

I love it!

I have to admit, your old style sometimes reminded me a lot of Naruto, especially Spike's hair... I think this style is a lot more original for you, also it makes them look more like growing children-adults you know :3

So exciting, I love watching your art progress, you're just amazing :3

I really like his teeth, as weird as that sounds. It gives his face a lot of character.

Its a good medium, and your friend was right, it is nice how you can exaggerate the expressions. Something about that seems to fit your style in general somehow.

I really like them they've got the same feel as your anthro versions of them.

I think the expressions are what's the best part of looking at this :)

Its more caricature-ish.. like you said, exaggerate without making it look freakish. For some reason I just love Sam's nose...

I LIKE IT ALOTZ 

Both of them kinda seem to share the characteristic of prominently sticking out ears, though. Sure, a bunch of people have ears like that, but perhaps for the sake of diversity within your characters you may not want to do that. Or maybe you meant to draw them that way. Anyway, I'm just sayin, that what it looks like to me.
Not as if I could do any better!
