Spike portrait - pencil drawing by oomizuao Spike portrait - pencil drawing by oomizuao
Something I drew while I was bored waiting for my computer to move a huge amount of files from one folder to the other... :p

It's Spike, drawn with red and black color pencils. I'm actually quite pleased with this.. :meow: I think I'm getting closer to making him look like he's supposed to look. Less buff, more skin and bones, and with messy hair, large ears and with dark, insomniac-type eyes.
so, yup... I'm gonna allow myself to be proud of this drawing today. I know I'll probably look back at it in a month or so and think it looks crap, but for now, I think it looks ok...

I certainly like it, but i know what you mean by one day "OOh this came out welll!" and as soon as you learn a new technique or proportion stuff, you look back and "What... what have i done? This doesn't look right... I was proud of this? D:" I've done that... But this is definitely amazing. I hope you still love it for much longer than a month or so. :)

HOLY FUDGE! :faint: Well Keano, now you really DO look so 2D you might as well be a piece of paper ...

Keano: Gee, thanks ...?

Elisey, he looks so real! His face structure is so great, so defined! I can't get over the texture of his facial features. You even have eye bags under his eyes, and they stand out so well that they make him look even MORE human!

I ADORE this! :glomp: Fantastic work!

Wouldn't Spikes teachers notice how malnourished he is with one glance? I'd think they'd be somewhat concerned.
