...And Dance Again by calicokatt ...And Dance Again by calicokatt
Nobody knows what i'm feeling inside
I find it so stupid
So why should I hide
That I love to make love to you baby
(yeah make love to me)
So many ways wanna touch you tonight
I'm a big girl got no secrets this time
Yeah I love to make love to you baby
(yeah make love to me)

If this would be a perfect world
We'd be together then
(let's do it do it do it)
Only got just one life this i've learned
Who cares what they're gonna say
(let's do it do it do it)

I wanna dance, and love, and dance again
I wanna dance, and love, and dance again....
-Jennifer Lopez w/ Pitbull





IT'S.....IT'S......IT'S....IT'S THE FIRST MAC-A-MEL OF 2013!!!!! :iconkermityayplz: AHHH MAHHH GAWDDDD!!!

I was going to wait to post a Mac-a-Mel, but DAMMIT I CANNOT, OKAY? I have this SERIOUS PROBLEM. I. MUST. SHIP. THEM.

(For the record, you're actually supposed to totally ship them.)

Melanie: NO, ACTUALLY -

*slaps Melanie away* It's so irritating that they aren't a couple because of how freakin' adorable I think they look together, but at the same time, if they got together, I don't know if I'd have as much fun, as I probably said in an earlier post. Altho, the more I draw them, the more sluttier their pictures become. TEE HEE. :iconteheplz:

Anyway. The lyrics I provided... I never actually drew this picture to that song, but when I finished it, I couldn't get it out of my head, and when I listen to it, this picture comes to mind. I guess because the song reminds me of you know, Mac and Mel dancing. And then doin' it. And then dancing, again. Or something. I just LOVE that song by the way. Pitbull's part in the beginning makes me giggle. And how many episodes about giant squid does Monster Quest have to do? Seriously? Anyway. /random comment.

So. I drew this picture of Mac-A-Mel, probably while talking to my sister, :iconstephratte: , because for some reason when I talk to her on the phone I'm always drawing Mac-a-Mel smut, and... yes. They are...supposed to be dancing. Altho, I'm not too sure why in this dance Mac doesn't have a shirt on (BECAUSE HE'S HOT SHIT, THAT'S WHY. *swats Mac away from the keyboard). Perhaps they are reenacting Dirty Dancing. I think Patrick Swayze was topless in that movie several times dancing with Jennifer Grey.

Melanie: The only problem is that Mac is CLEARLY NOT Patrick Swayze and is completely GROSS. :iconomgewplz:

So gross that you just GOTTA WRAP YOUR ARMS AROUND HIS NECK AND SHOVE YOUR LEG HALFWAY UP HIS BODY, RIGHT, MELANIE?? *Melanie throw potatoes at me. I really don't knwo where my characters keep getting potatoes from. MUST BE FROM SAMWISE GAMGEE. Anyway.)

I guess I wanted to practice anatomy so that's probably why Mac's shirt is off. I dunno. I'm sure his pants will come off eventually.

And yes, Mac's hand is creepin' up there on Melanies leg. I don't really know if I was initially going for that, but in the end it came off like that. I really wanted to make this sexy so I added things to it, I guess. I don't think I've really drawn Mellie in red that much, but theres a reason for that. See, my boyfriend always liked red, he thought it was a sexy colour. I very rarely wear red, because I feel as tho I'd look like a giant walking stop sign, but if I buy sexy things (not just lingerie, you pervs.) I always try and buy something red, or something that has red in it. So, I thought I'd make Melanies dress red to oomph up her sexyness. And look, she's got some red heels on too TEE HEE!

OH MAH GOD PERHAPS THIS IS FROM AN EPISODE OF RED SHOE DIARRIIIIESSSS!!! *giggles snorts about* Or an episode that Melanie fantasizes about anyway. Naughty, naughty, NAUGHTY Melanie. *Melanie lifts her hand to slap me, I just swat her away*

Honestly, I just feel like Melanie is that type of person who doesn't go out with that many guys, but she fantasizes a lot. Mostly because she's a little shy I guess. That's so cute.

Melanie: I've NEVER fantasized about Mac. EVER.

You can't even say that with a straight face.

Melanie: DKLSAJKFL;JSAKLFJD;AOFJAL;KDLKASJFKL!!! *flails about angrily*

Anyway. Honestly, on the original drawing, Melanies other leg was WAYYYY too long so I kinda trimmed this picture down, and will later go back and cut the picture in real life too. For some reason I can't help but think that Melanie's red dress looks like pajamas. Guess she's trying a new fashion statement or something. Pajamas with heels. Still probably looks better than velour suits in heels that was really popular a few years ago.

Aside from Melanie's wierdo leg on the original drawing, my only other complaint is that Melanie's arm looks a little too thin here. It's not terribly bothersome for me, but regardless it just looks a little weird. I reallllllllllllllllllllllllllyyyyy like how Mac turned out, actually. I always have fun drawing guys' arms and I totally heart those arms thar. Yet another character to add to the beautiful arms club! Some Mac-age for some of my female watchers, TEE HEE. Those pants are kinda low too. I honestly don't know if they are supposed to be baggy or what. At least I drew him with an ass this time. In some pictures drawn around the same time I kept drawing him without an ass.

And HOLY CRAP. The scan isn't even that terrible here either! Wow! I'm impressed. Theres just a part near their faces that looks blurry a bit, and some parts on the inking on Melanie's dress and some grainy bits, but overall the scan isn't terrible. Enjoy it while you can, everyone. Because you ain't gonna see too many good scans from me very often.

The background was done with regular watercolours. You know, the ones you get in the tubes? Errrr...atleast I think so. Oh crap, I don't even know. I just have a watercolour palette sitting on my art desk that I tend to just go to that for backgrounds because it's right there. I really can't remember.

You know what I love about this picture? Aside from it being a Mac-a-Mel which is instant love anyway? The fact that they are just so CLOSE together. Sometimes when I draw coupley pictures, I can never get the characters to pose properly, or one character will be too far away then what I had intended. But these two just, for lack of a better term, molded perfectly together. AH MAH GAWD THAT PROBABLY MEANS SOMETHING. :iconiheartitplz: So precious. I love how their noses are just about touching, and GAHHH THEIR BODIES. I love how SQUISHED they're bodies are together. We all know Melanie's having fun rubbing her body all over Mac's body. DON'T LIE MELANIE WE CAN ALL SEE IT IN YOUR EYEEEEEEESSS! *Potatoes! Potatoes thrown everywhere!* And, their naughty bits are placed perfectly as well. Okay, that sounded wrong, but in couple pictures, sometimes a challenge is making the characters look, like, I dunno, they are placed properly. Sometimes I will draw a character too far down and it just looks weird. But oh no. LOOKS LIKE THERES SOME NAUGHTY BIT MAGNETS ATTACHED TO THEM TEE HEE.

Melanie: I have a fist magnet that will soon be attached to your face. :iconragefaceplz:

Oh, shut up, Melanie. :iconwthplz: Anyway. I really love how this one came out. They're so adorable and precious. Hopefully one day Melanie will realize this. Them clothes aren't going to be on for too lonnnnngggg!

Maybe I should draw a raunchy sequel to this one :iconhurrhurrplz: Yes....yes..perhaps I should. (In secret, where Melanie can't see me do such a thing.)

Melanie: *just stares angrily at me*

*laughs evily*

So yes, just Mac-A-Mel doing some kinda...tango or something. OR SOMETHING BEING THE OPERATIVE TERM HERE. :iconteheplz: We allllllll know what's REALLY going on...........

Anyway. Mac-a-Mel here are to Jess Ratte :D

Hehehe, you type so much! But I love it! xD

Teee! XD I know... Honestly, I think a lot of it has to do with the fact taht I just don't have that many people in RL to talk to about art, or my little world of characters that I just...explode I guess on the internet XD

I can't blame you. :3 I feel the same way. I used to post a lot of information on stuff before, in all thorough detail of memories past. It was fun! I had no one to really talk to either-- but a lot of folks do the whole 'TL;DR' thing now like it's going out of style, so I keep myself fairly restrained. x.x;;

It's fun listening to what you post, though. :3

Damn this is a hawt image. :3
I love the posing.
calicokatt Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The posing on this was a lot of fun! I love posing couples, altho sometimes I just can never get thier bodies right. These two have been turning out quite well lately tho, which is good :D Anddd trying to find reference posing can be difficult too.
