Afoul Cast by 47ness Afoul Cast by 47ness
They certainly seem such... :paranoid:
(these are more neutral design studies to round out the cast for the previous piece Flamobsters by 47ness ...then again, the flamingo is just naturally more expressive, I think ;P )

The merganser was the most fun to design! (but hell to draw in subsequent storyboard panels, due to its oblong head) :XD:

I'LL POST THE ROUGH VIDEO I MADE OF THEM SOMETIME SOON. IT'S NOT REALLY KID-FRIENDLY BUT YOU CAN PRETEND LIKE IT IS.

No smoking and whatnot of course. XD;

Nah (not yet anyway). :XD:

Although I did sketch out a short comic that uses the flamingo design. ^~

Right now they're for some test animation work in my portfolio.

Ahhhh your pen and pencil work is just AMAZING to look at, I love the quality of these on that recycled paper!

The real MVP is the recycled paper. ¦'D

I was thinking how popular these pieces are (compared to my usual), I'm tempted to do portraits of them for the next round of conventions... ''<

You said it as perfectly as one could on that first topic. :nod:
Makes me think back to stuff like this and 'why' it's so instantly charming.

I'm pretty happy to keep busting out the ol' paper and pencil (especially as the industry itself keeps moving away from that). I guess 'art as a business' has to go where it goes.

(If I ever put out a big fancy book of SSnPP, it should include some more candid behind-the-scenes/behind-the-layers of how it gets drawn.) :dummy:

Delightful!!

Now, did you deliberately create that smug winking smile on the teacup wielding penguin's waistcoat, or did it sneak up on you while the owl in the bowler distracted you?

47ness Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
Huh, so I did. :0 I was basing off fashion trends of the early 20th Century. But yeah, distraction in full effect.
I still owe the owl a pair of tiny spectacles, barely resting on its barely-there beak. :iconsmartyplz:
