Sooooo... yeah. :D

Haha, drawn last night when my first attempt at Dave went sour. Also while drinking Faygo Redpop. It was appropriate! I had a lot of fun with this one. XD

Gamzee Hussie!

I think this is one of the pieces you've down that really shows off the transformation in your coloring techniques. I like how you leave the sketchy lines instead of doing digital or traditional inks, it adds a feeling of softness to your art that is accented by the subtle shadows and highlights. I really like the blending you did between colors, especially on the horns. It's hard to get two distinct colors to blend properly. The background also lends a lot to the image, I like the text effects. Is that a font or did you do that by hand?

I actually like his horns better than Tavros's and Karkat's. I think I did them a little differently here when I was coloring/shading them. And I can't tell you how many times I went back and forth on the lines/no lines thing. I kept hiding the layer and putting it back. (Mainly because of his hair--I used the same style I have been lately, but with the hard pencil lines it's a little hard to see.) I actually erased part of the outline on his head, just around his hair, then realized the whole thing just looked MUCH better with the sketchy lines. Gamzee's kinda unstable here, so the messiness works, I think. :) And that's a font! I couldn't get anything I wrote myself to look right. ^^; I wanted it to look like it'd been written in blood and couldn't get it, so I Googled "bloody fonts" XDDD
