Longest Walk Home Ever by calicokatt Longest Walk Home Ever by calicokatt
I wasn't going to post this one yet, but I looked at the thumbnail and I thought of that title and I just couldn't resist.

Because, you know, I thought you might want a break from Mac-a-Mels, but we all know that no one gets sick of Mac-a-Mels because they are just perfect. *Melanie raises her hand in protest*

Shut up, Bitch. You don't count.

Melanie: BITCH PLEASE. DON'T EVEN START WITH ME. :iconumwtfplz:

Anyway. While I enjoy drawing Mac-a-Mel-a-Smutting, sometimes drawing real Mac-a-Mel situations (or, should I say, situations that we only see. All those other Mac-a-Mels are, you know, just them banging behind our backs.

Melanie: YOUR FACE HERE. *lifts up her fist* :iconewplz:

So, usually, Melanie is trying to avoid Mac at all costs, and yet, they always seem to run into each other, and thus, Mac usually tries to ask Melanie out in new and exciting ways.

Melanie: Asking me if I want to "Supersize my Big Mac meal" is NOT asking me out. It's him being DISGUSTING.

Someone might find that charming. Mainly just Ronald McDonald, but whatever. It's a start.

Anyway. Throughout this process, we actually are supposed to feel extremely sorry for Mac, because he actually, genuinely is in love with Melanie, and isn't just trying to get into her pants.

Melanie: "Supersize my Big Mac meal" isn't trying to get into my pants? :iconfffuuuplz:

No, it's him trying to get you in his pants. ZING! *drumroll please!*

Anyway. So one day, for whatever reason, Melanie and Mac like, walk...on a path, or something, going somewhere for no reason, I dunno. I just wanted to do some practicing, and thought I'd draw a silly picture of them together. You know. Mac hitting on Melanie and trying to be charming, and Melanie trying to get away (even tho, you know, she doesn't look like she is.) I mean, her arms are crossed, so he's really just doing her a favour, because she's cold, and he's trying to warm him up with his SERIOUS HOTNESS.

Melanie: As I throw up ever so slightly in my mouth.

I dunno what's going on, I just felt like drawing this. I can only imagine Melanie thinking that this is the longest path she has EVER taken home, and she is trying to find an escape route, but no matter where she goes, she'll probably end up bumping into him later on, because that usually happens. (She doesn't get the hint that they are like TOTALLY SUPPOSED TO BE TOGETHER AND THAT FATE BRINGS THEM - *javelin smashes into her face from Melanie* )

Anyway. I drew this one a little while back, and I was inspired by this picture of a fall scene that I saw, where people were walking down a hill. I want to try and, you know, not suck at backgrounds and things, and actually want to stop doing half assed things, so I thought I'd experiment and this is what I came up with. I'm happy with the results, actually. I was really worried that the background would end up devouring my very soul because of how bad it would turn out, but it actually didn't turn out too bad at all, actually. I was hoping that the trees looked like they were like...on hills and stuff, and not that Mac and Melanie are like super huge giants and things. I wanted to do a fall scene so I could add more colour to the picture. I suppose it's a rather warm fall day since they aren't wearing jackets.

But we all know that Mac is one of those guys who would probably not wear a jacket if it made him look not as awesome as he could look without a jacket so...

Or, in this case, do AN EPIC COLLA POP.


Melanie: Allow me. *slaps Mac. Several times.*

GAHHHH He just AHHH. The colla pop is just too much douchedom. XD But we don't slap him because we love him so we just hug him anyway because for whatever reason, his doucheness makes him pretty adorable.

Melanie: ...That is extremely debatable.

Altho I'm not too sure why he's not wearing his sunglasses, because you think he would because it would make him look that much cooler, altho perhaps he thinks they look cooler hooked on to his shirt or something. Because you know, he doesn't want to make himself look TOO cool because you might just explode.

Melanie: There are plenty of ways for him to look cool. Like jumping into a very cold river full of schools of extremely hungry pirahnas. Or, sharks, perhaps.

Anyway. So this was all kinds of fun to draw. And for once, I actually think it didn't scan in that bad. I mean, it still looks awful, but not too bad. PERHAPS MY SCANNER IS A MAC-A-MEL FAN TOO!!!

And yes, I realize Mac has an extremely bendable wrist. (It has more groping bewbs potential. XD ) Oh gawsh, with how adorable Mac looks in this, you just have to be all like WHY DOESN'T SHE WANT TO GO OUT WITH HIM?!???

Melanie: *very long moment of silence* ...Seriously, Jess? Seriously? :iconomgewplz:

Oh, and hey. I think I TOTALLY just did like perspective and stuff with this picture. OH MAH GAWSH AM I SLOWLY GETTING BETTAH AT ARTING??

*crickets chirp*

Mac: You know, Melanie just might pull one a Kate Hudson one day and actually go out with me, and then pretend to be really annoying to get me to stop liking her... *looks at Melanie*
Melanie: *long pause* Nice try, but no.
Mac: I tried. :iconlll-plz:

Oh gawsh this one was all kinds of fun to do. Took a while to finish and colour, but I actually love doing backgrounds all with coloured pencils. I usually like the results more then when I don't do them, and I actually feel a little more accomplished. Like, you know, I actually did something instead of being a lazy pile.

And you know what else? It's like totally super romantic that there is no one else in the scene SO THEY ARE LIKE ALL ALONE TOGETHER AND THEY ARE LIKE TOTALLY GOING TO - *here comes the javelin again propelled by Melanie*

I suppose I should have drawn someone walking their cat (what? I've seen it happen, you know.) or something, but you know, Mac-a-Mel are just adorable by themselves. ALTHOUGH WE ALL KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THEY GET ALONE TOGETHER -

Melanie:... I'm out of javelins right now, but rest assured there is one that is going to ram right through your brain when you least expect it.

I don't have a brain so HAH HAH!

So yes, just a fun picture of Mac and Melanie just taking a stroll. Longest walk evar in history for Melanie, but perhaps, just perhaps, she might soon enjoy Mac's company. We all know she secretly does, that she's secretly all hot and bothered, and that she secretly wants to rip off his clothes and get nasty with him LIKE TOTALLY RIGHT THAR but, you know. Theres kids out in public... *sticks hit me*

Melanie: I told you, I'm out of javelins. :iconidissaproveplz:

I'm totally tempted to draw Melanie ripping Mac's clothes off, seriously. *pebbles hit me nao.*

Melanie: I can't find bigger rocks, but rest assured, Jess. THERE WILL BE MAJOR ROCKAGE SOON.

Major rockage of Mac's sausage in your bed. :iconteheplz:

Melanie: OH I KNOW YOU JUST DIDN'T SAY THAT. :iconfrageplz:

GAWSH, they are so adorable.

Anyhoo, Mac-a-Mel here are both to Jess Ratte :D

:lol: YOur descriptions crack me up :XD: Ah. Cute pic. I like these "situation pics" where Mac is all douchey and Mel is all "GTFO!" :XD: Cute :D

FTTT, she so wants him tho. It's totally obvious. *is shot in the head with a be be gun* Situation pics are fun to draw, need to do more of them. I've been doing a few. Good to go back to my roots and draw my character being...<insert all kinds of creative words here>

She'll surrender to his doucheness eventually. Make a good novel, actually. Surrender to Douche. Might have to write that one. XD

The background looks great, I love the combination of colours, and the bridge is nice too.

Oh gawsh thank you!! I'm really trying to do better backgrounds - I just find I get frustrated when I draw them, so frustrated that I give up a lot and just "do them later", which usually means I'll probably never finish the picture lol! This one was a lot of fun :)

I lol'd at the Ronald McDonald comment - I almost want to see him hiding in a bush here and watching, though that seems oddly pervy. XD Anyway! I like how RELENTLESS Mac is with Melanie and how he is grinning each time. He takes constant rejection like a man XD Is pink Melanie's signature colour? I notice you often place her in it. /random/
calicokatt Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
LOL and I loled at your Ronald McDonald comment about Ronald hiding in the bushes! XD

I've kinda created Mac that way - verryyyyy veryyyyyy veryyyyy persistant! It's part of his genes - men in the family get what they want XD That and I'm a hopeless romantic and, since they were kinda made for each other (literally) and I'd like to think that one day, just one day, in the future, Melanie will succomb to her desires - *gets hit in the head with a brick*

LOL I actually noticed the pink thing too. I think it's purely coincedental - I personally like to wear a lot of pink myself (if I'm not wearing black, I'm usually wearing pink!) and since personality wise Mel and I are very similar, I guess I subconciously colour her clothing pink :)
Larissa-Bright Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Melanie will capitulate to Mac one of these days. She's got to be flattered by the attention. XD

I think I probably do that too - I lvoe greens, yellows and purples so my characters often wind up in those. I also love pink, though it's the one colour that doesn't really work for me when I wear it.

Wow, that poor look of wanting to gouge her own eyes out from walking with him. Or maybe just gouge him. :) The expressions say it all!
calicokatt Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thankies so much for the comments! I was trying to convey those expressions from these two so I guess it worked! It was fun to draw and I always giggle when I put these two in pictures together - they make me so happy :D
