Line Art: Owl Girl

Line Art: Owl Girl

Eeeeeeeeee! Sorry, I’m just so excited to be drawing these fun animal girls again. This adorable owl girl is another one in my series of animal-themed coloring pages! Someday, I hope to have enough to fill a coloring book. This one was a request from a Facebook friend of mine who asked, “Can you do an owl girl?” Well, I can and I did! (Even though it took me a long time.)

OMG. She looks like she wants to give you a hug! Don’t leave her hanging!!!

Starting from the top, her hair poof is  in the shape of a feather! In addition, her pigtails represent the ear fluff of an actual owl. I wanted to give her cute cartoon eyebrows like I usually give my characters, but still convey the intense-looking eyebrows that owls have. I did my best to combine the two! Does it work? Let me know what you think!

The pointy nose I drew on her face is somewhat beak-like, I think. Her glasses are supposed to look like cute, tiny wings. Since owls are often portrayed as wise, I immediately thought of this girl being a student! Thus, I drew her in a private school outfit which I think turned out great. Her fluffy jacket is intended to be like an owl’s feathery wings! Last but not least, her socks have the same “v”-like feathery pattern that I often see on cartoon owls. Adorable!!

She’s also meant to look a little bit younger than my other animal girls. If I were to rank them from youngest to oldest, I would say that this owl girl is first, then the kitty girl, the bat girl, the polar bear girl, the ladybug girl, and finally the fox girl. Even if they’re not all the same age, I could totally see the five of them hanging out together.

Please give suggestions as to what kind of animal character you’d like me to draw next! Even if it takes me a while, I’ll do my best to acquiesce to your request. 😉 Or, if you want something more specific, you can always commission me to draw an existing character or one of your own. My prices are really cheap, if I do say so myself! And I do say so. So there. LOL As always, thanks to my lovely Citizens!

Cute Characters: Bee Detectives

Cute Characters: Bee Detectives

These two look adorable together!

In an earlier post, I introduced my character Sweetie Bee (formerly Bumble Sweet). However, she wasn’t actually the first bee character that I came up with! Before I had the idea to make my Pony.Town character bee-themed, I had sketched out several character design doodles, one of them being a detective bee wearing a fedora and a trench coat. This character then became Detective Bumble, the boy standing to the left of Sweetie!

Richard Bumble and Sweetie Bumble are both famous detectives. They’re brother and sister, and although Sweetie is older than Richard, they are commonly referred to as “The Bumble Twins.” Richard’s friends call him Richie, but the public knows him as Detective Bumble. Everyone calls his sister Sweetie Bee. While she’s a little more introverted, Richie is a total extrovert. She is calm, cool, and reserved; he’s energetic, wacky, and a little clumsy. I tried to make the two of them compliment each other!

Originally, other than Sweetie’s ponytail and Richie’s fedora, Richie and Sweetie had the same hair (or… head fur). Thus, I decided to change his hairstyle to make it easier to differentiate between them. I also removed Richie’s trench coat because I thought it would be difficult to draw. I made a lot of mistakes with the inking, some of which I tried to clean up once I had the picture scanned in. Don’t ask me what happened to Sweetie’s bottom-left hand… LOL! In addition, I’d like to point out that in this drawing, there is a total of EIGHT ARMS! Why did I have to give each character four arms!? Just two in one drawing is hard enough to manage, but I had to figure out what do do with EIGHT! Blargh…

I would love to write a story or draw a black-and-white comic with these characters and others. It feels great not to limit myself to strictly human and human-shaped characters like I did for so long! Cartoon creatures are very enjoyable to draw, and I would recommend creating some creature characters of your own to anyone who feels like their art is getting boring. LavenderTowne’s video on cute character design is very helpful!

I do think that, at least for now, I will be sticking to mostly black-and-white drawings. However, once I get a little comfortable with drawing, I might move on to colored illustrations! Thank you, my Citizens, for taking the time to observe my humble works of art. 🙂

Line Art: Fox Girl

Line Art: Fox Girl

She looks more playful than she does sly! Maybe even a bit nervous? Gotta love those skinny little stick-arms.

This one was a request from my friend! I know her in real life, but we live very far from each other, so I mostly talk to her online. She suggested that I do “a fox or a fiery animal.” Kudos to her for this great prompt! I had a little trouble with it, but I feel like the finished product looks absolutely adorable.

The fox-inspired parts of her include her hair, with a ponytail that is styled to look like a fox’s tail, and her hair clip, which is a fox head. The pupils in her eyes are slits, like a fox’s pupils. I also tried to make her ears a bit longer and less rounded than I usually draw them, like a fox’s pointy ears! Her fluffy scarf and the fluffy parts of her gloves and boots represent fur. She has those long gloves and boots because of the black markings on a fox’s front and back legs. If this piece were colored, her boots and gloves would be black or dark brown!

I have another request coming up, but also a lot of “just for fun” doodles that I hope to post soon. Feel free to leave suggestions for more animal girls or other things I could draw! Have a wonderful day, my Citizens.

Line Art: Kitty Girl

Line Art: Kitty Girl

This is one sassy cat!

Here’s another drawing of an animal-themed girl. This one was a request from a friend of mine, whose name I won’t mention online. I showed her a few of my animal girl drawings, and she wanted me to draw a cat! At first I was hesitant, because everyone draws cat girls, and I didn’t want my illustration to fall prey to the general stereotypes of cartoon and anime cat girl art. Instead of making her shy and innocent, I made her feisty and unapologetic – like a real house cat. They are not shy about how much they hate you, LOL! Rather than plopping some ears and a tail on an anime schoolgirl, I tried to make this feline female a cool and modern lady.

The kitty girl’s hair poof sort-of resembles a cat’s head with pointy ears. Her eyes are cat-like, and the three prominent eyelashes at the bottom also represent whiskers. She has a cat-like mouth that also resembles a letter “w”! There’s a cat emblem on her crop top, and she’s wearing some adorable fluffy cat gloves. She also has long kitten stockings, which are a real product that I found on Hot Topic’s website. I would probably wear these… except I rarely wear shorts, so you wouldn’t be able to tell. Haha!

Even though I wasn’t looking forward to this drawing as much as I was the others, this turned out to be a very fun picture to draw. Thanks, friend! I don’t often draw arms with actual joints, so I feel slightly accomplished. If you guys have any suggestions for what kind of animal girl I should draw next, feel free to comment your ideas. Until next time, Citizens!
