How did you manage to get the angle just right? Its impressive! And the characters look very independant and individual - I can even hear what they would each sound like.
(Isn't the bikini strap that goes around the ribs missing?sorry!)

superchickenn123 Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2006
hey, what do you do to keep the paper so clean?

tartansocks Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2006
That is freakin' amazing... the fact that it's just done with a pencil is so inspiring. Maybe I don't have to go rush out and buy a Tablet to get awesome artness after all :).

ZombiDJ Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
sexy, i like it how they all look so layed back, mmm send some of that ramen over here will ya <3
weremole Featured By Owner Jul 1, 2006   Digital Artist
You work for Udon. =) I figured. Its a crime if you didn't have work.

I dig how relaxed the pic is. Its just nice. Allthough the perspective quirks at times but... I shouldn't be talking about that. Perspective is tricky.

Otherwhise I just dig how "together" it looks. You must have sketched like crazy before beginning the clean-line stage. 0_0
Justsketch Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2006
I only have one crit that's really buggin me- The perspective on the girl sitting at the table makes it look like she is leaning with her head down on it, and it looks really awkward... other than that, it's really nice. I like how you do that perspective, you do it well (for the most part =P)
arnistotle Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2006
oh no someone noticed it!!
haha.. i try to do cool stuff with perspective but someting is always wrong ^^ i didnt want to redraw her though.. so i was hoping it wouldnt effect theoverall image too much ^^
but i'm glad someone pointed it out
Justsketch Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2006
I highly doubt anyone will mind. Looking again it's not that bad. I think just using some simple 3 point perspective lines to give the spine direction would make it a bunch easier. Good luck, it still came out good looking!
kaze12 Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2006
Are you involved with UDON comics Street Fighter?

MerryMelancholy Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2006
Why yes, I would like noodles with that.
I do so like noodles.
And since it seems that I see noodles,
I like what I see.

this is fantastic! But I can't help wondering how her bikini top stays on!
KinkyInks Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2006  Professional Digital Artist
Cool! nice lines :D
Dragonleo Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2006
Not the first time I'm here glaring at this piece, but I thought I'd give it a comment, not to forget the rest of the gallery. It's just cool.
First of all, the style you're doing everything with, it's awesome. In a way simple and comic-like, but still full of great little detail and stuff to look at, I admire that quite a bit. I'm a friend of detail, but some fantasy-style drawings with little detail cramped up all over the place just cross the line, their tiring to look at. Your work is simple, but interesting, can't really get tired looking at it, because there's so much new to find by just rubbing your eyes and looking a bit closer!
To the point. This little piece of art here is equipped with a simple background and four interesting characters. The simple (not too simple though, a few lines wouldn't work so well) bg fuses smoothly with the characters of the image and creates a nice atmosphere for the viewer to sense. The contrasts between the male charas is fun, because it awakens interest in both of them separately, not as a pair of two characters, as two characters with a similar anatomy could have done. And the girls? they're cute, I'd sure as hell want to transform into a 2d-drawing and meet the girl sitting, she's hwt (; Oh well, hehe.
The seats, the guitar case, the backpack and the boxes make the image more interesting without stealing the attention to themselves too much. Great perspective too! The picture as a whole is great, it lacks only one thing: colors. Can't wait to see them. Dying to see more of this, way to go, Arnold.
.. I'll have to say that for the last two years that I've been scrolling through dArt, I feel sorry for myself for not noticing you until just recently!
arnistotle Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2006
wow thanks ^^
you really know how to make my picture sound good :D
the color one is coming soon!
Dragonleo Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2006
I'll be waiting for it then, with pleasure (;
You're very welcome, it's always nice to see that someone appreciates comments (: And hey, there is a reason why I made it sound so good (; the simple reason that it IS good :D Keep it up, keep it up.

MMMTASTY. I'm going to study this and hope someday I can master perspective in such a way.

I think I can kill myself happily over how jealous I am of your skill. XD
