OH HAI ITS KAI by calicokatt OH HAI ITS KAI by calicokatt
I'll completely admit it right now.

I actually enjoy drawing male characters more than female characters. Perhaps it is because I'm a female, so therefore I like to draw dunno. Hormones?

But you see, sometimes guys aren't as fun to draw as girlies in the fashion department. Not that you can't have fun with them, of course, it's just sometimes, drawing some UBER MODERN CHIC THIS IS ON THE CATWALK fashion just looks...strange on some of your male characters. And of course, sometimes bright colours just don't look right on some of my guy characters.

But then, of course, theres Kai.

Ah yes. My little Kai. I can put him in virtually anything and he'd look completely right. So long, of course, the items that he's wearing are completely tattered and torn. I'm pretty sure Kai purposely falls of his bike/skateboard/trips on stuff/whatever to fall in hopes that he'll rip his clothing even more.

(Of course, he realizes it's less painful just to take some scissors and do it yourself. XD)

So anyway, one day I was all like IMMA GONNA DRAW KAI OH YAY! So...that's what I did. So here he is, his glamour shot, or something. I dunno. He just looks like he's posing for some photoshoot or something, except he lacks a smoulder like, I dunno, Mac or Ricky would try to do if they were shooting for a fashion shoot. He's just being cute, or something. Showing you his awesome ripped clothes, and his fishnets. He's so colourful. I don't know many guys who would try to rock a pink shirt and yellow pants and actually make it work. XD

(Kai can wear a dress and make it work. He's quite versatile.)

He'd totally make a great dress up doll.

Anyway, nothing really exciting, to be honest with you, just something I felt like drawing of Kai. He's quite a fun character to draw, but I admit that I still have to use reference pictures for his hair because I FAIL. Nah, it's just still a little out there to draw. I actually tried to style my hair like Kai once, however, I didn't have enough hair product to do it. Or, perhaps I just don't know his secret to the faux hawk....

Kai: YOU'LL NEVER KNOW MY SECRET. :iconhardcoreplz:


Kai: You'd never kill me off.

No, but I'd completely torture you by putting you in some awful romantic situation in which it will slowly eat away at your insides, like Mac.


Oh, no, Kai. For we all know the True Evil One. *we all look down the stairs into the darkness to see Basement Cats eyes glowing back at us....*

Kai: *Basement Cat will never hurt Kai because Kai recently bribed Basement Cat with cheeseburgers.*

Anyway. So here is Kai. He's just so cute, isn't he? Even with all those piercings rammed into his face. I think he might have a few new peircings thar too. He gets a new piercing every week, I guess. That he probably does himself. Because his parents won't give him the money to "destroy his face". Or he takes the money that he uses for the ADHD medication that his parents think he needs and pays for his piercings. XD I just adore his yeller pinstripe pants! I simply must get some, altho Kai can rock skinny jeans much better then I can (and er, he can rock them better then pretty much anyone, because personally, I feel there is a very small minority of people who can actually rock skinnies. :icondoomedplz: )

He can be tricky to draw, because he's ridiculously skinny, which is much different compared to some of my other dudes. But that makes him fun to draw. What makes him hard to draw is making him look skinny, but still give him a boyish figure.

The background was done with markers - I just did what I've done in the past where I whip out my pointillism skillz and dot the son of a bitch until I'm satisfied, and then wash it with water, shove the picture under some heavy books for a few days so the water "spreads" and then voila! I tried to use colours that weren't pinky or yellowy, so I used some purples, blues and greens. I personally think it could have been a bit better but I still like it anyway.

Now, for those of you who are still all :iconffffplz: over this picture because you are completely disgusted with this sad excuse of a scan....ONCE AGAIN MY SCANNER ATE MY INTESTINES AND DECIDED TO HANG ME WITH THEM.

(How can it use your intestines if it ate them, dumbass?)

MY SCANNER HAS EVIL POWERS OF THAT YOU DON'T KNOW. No one will EVER understand my scanners TRUE evil. Until I can hire Chuck Norris to kill my scanner, I will forever be damned. (Basement Cat has hired Chuck Norris to do his bidding, see.) Anyway, just incase, you know, you didn't see it already, the scan of this is COMPLETE ARSE SHIT -

(Where else would shit come from but the arse? 0.0)

IT'S AN EXPRESSION BRAIN. :iconwhatdaplz: Anyway. The...the scan of this is just awful. I don't know WHY THE FECK my scanner CANNOT COMPREHEND BLACK at ALL, but the black on this picture is just...

There is really no words to describe it, really. But I can completely assure you that the colours DO NOT LOOK LIKE THIS ON THE ORIGINAL.

(LUL wouldn't it be funny if you guys saw my original drawings and like, I was lying all along and they actually do look as crummy as my scans? XD)

I seriously puked my snot out when I saw the scan of this. GAWD. (Yes, it was so awful that my snot in my nose somehow crawled to my mouth and I thus puked it out.) Anyway. I guess you guys all figured my scan would be horrid so you guys probably don't pay attention to them anymore...

I HOPE. :icontearplz:

Welp, Kai, welcome to the My Scanner Really Hates This Character Club. Other fine members of this organization are Mac, Calico, Ricky.... *fifteen million years later....* and Vivian.


Anyway. Just a fun picture of Kai. I have fun drawing him. I should have given him eyeliner and/or eyeshadow.


(The sad thing is, he actually rocks makeup better then most girls, too. DAMN HIM. HE'S SO PRREETTTTY! So VERY PRETTTTYYYY!! :iconikissitplz:)

Kai-ly Kai here is to Jess Ratte :D

Yee hee! Thankies so much! I always have fun coming up with outfits for Kai! It's nice not to have to think really about what you're putting on your character - sometimes if you draw the "wrong" thing on a character they just don't look right! XD

Oh MY! It's KAI! He looks as AWESOME as always! :D Great stuff! :D
kaourika Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012
8U It's been a really long time since you drew him! TOO LONG!
He's still one of my fave designs from you~ it's just hard to go wrong with Kai. THOSE PANTS. <3
PuppyHeartbeat Featured By Owner Jan 23, 2012
I love the way you drew him! *///n///* ~:heart:
Kai can pull of this color combination very well. :la: I approve! ;D Also his clothes are very stylish. *o* You did such a good job on his expression and his hair is just awesome. ;D

You say the scanner messed it up...? Where? DD8< It looks so nice and colorful. ;3; :heart:
The colors looks so smooth. ;u; :love:
calicokatt Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Awww thankies so much!! I love bright colours on Kai - it just matches his personality I think. It's always fun to draw characters and their fashion styles! Thanks so much for the comment about the expression - it's fun to draw!

Ahhhh my scanner messes up ALL of my pictures. I dunno, there are just some colours (black, red...) that it just refuses to scan properly XD It drives me ballistic! We artists never have a good relationships with our scanners XD

(Commenting on this because you said things I MUST comment on 8|)

Glad to know I'm not the only one who enjoys drawing my male characters over my female ones :lol: But then again, I have other reasons (most of my males are more fun to draw, situational, or have better personalities to work with). But still, just saying, THIS IS OKAY, WE'RE NOT CRAZY 8D *pets*

And I have to comment the fact you drew Kai here :D Because I SWEAR, I was recently like, browsing your gallery for fun, and I recall seeing some of his older images, and I was like, "Wow, she hasn't drawn/posted art of him in a long time D: Sadness!" because he's a really cool design (for his badass/snazzy attire and hair, to say the least ;)). So yeah, when this popped up I was like "WHOA- SHE READ MY MIND! 8U".

He really is an adorable lanky thing here :D With his face full of metal and his hair full of gel~ He sure rocks dem fishnets, and his torn clothing is awesome X3 I WANT THAT ENORMOUSLY LONG VEST. Also, props to the guy for pulling off pink and yellow (striped for goodness sake! Usually I hate pin-stripe, but they don't suck on him 8D) skinny jeans. I agree; most people look like douchebags in skinnies D: VEEERY few can pull them off. But seriously, you have a point; he's VERY versatile :D Go him! He just looks cute as hell in that pose :heart:

(Also, don't feel bad about needing a reference for your own characters XD I need them for most of mine, since I've been redesigning them 8| And it's a lot of new details to remember for soooo many characters OTL)

I thought it was interesting enough to mention :P Now you need to draw/post a picture of Leon! Because I'm pretty sure you haven't done that adorable little spaz in forever too ;; (also, just gently asking how trade progress goes |D No rush, just wondering! Looking forward to it~)
calicokatt Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh GAWD, I don't know what it is about my boyz, I just love drawing them so much! I admit to favouring them over my girls - I just find them more entertaining, and a lot of my guy characters are actually kind complex and have gone through a lot, so it just makes for good story writing! :D I do draw a lot of girl characters - really because I like designing fashion and there are just some things guys just..err...can't pull off. XD

Oh god, I know! Theres so many characters I need to draw again sometime! XD I think sometimes, we artists tend to draw certain characters over others, probably because we know how to draw them very easily (for example, I don't have go back and look for references on how to draw Mac because I know how to draw him already.)so we just tend to draw them for I guess convenience XD And of course, some characters are just much too fun to work with! XD LOL you know what the really wierd thing about Leon is? I find him SO HARD TO DRAW for some stupid reason! XD His hair throws me off for some reason XD But yes, I totally gotta draw that little spaz sometime again!

Aww I know about the skinnies XD I mean, it's really funny how I say this now, since I'm actually wearing skinny pants right now, but GAH i dunno what it is with them. Theres just not too many people who can pull them off. I only really wear them in the winter so I can easily shove them in boots. I have this thing where I DESPISE the bottoms of my pants wet, so skinnies help with that because I just shove them in boots and I don't have to worry about it. XD I think really thin people, like Kai, can pull off skinny jeans/pants the best :D

Eee about your picture, I actually just finished it! :D I had to wait for the background to draw, but I should be able to scan the picture within the next two days and then post it mwha hhahhah! :D

This is so badass, and he's a major cutie >;D loooove the color choices, too! So bright and neon-y looking :iconiloveitplz:
calicokatt Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Awwww thankies!!! I love his hair so much!!! I'd totally love to do what he does to his hair, but I'd have to bleach it and stuff to try and get the yellow because I've had my hair dark for soooo long and the yellow and/or red would just not show up. XD

HAI KAI! (I couldn't resist!). Well! Isn't he the stylish one! I must say he totally rocks those colours and netty gloves and it's been a long time no see for him. More, I say, MORE!
calicokatt Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
:giggle: I love netty shirts/gloves/anything so much! I actually don't have a pair of fishnet armbands yet...need to add that to my wardrobe! I just love to draw him because then I can pretty much put him in WHATEVER I want - some characters it's just impossible to do that without them looking, well, out of character. Hell, I even drew Kai in a dress once - of course that picture turned out very bad, but hey, I guess I can redraw it again!

It is really annoying tho when guys look better in some outfits then girls do XD It drives me crazy when a guy can rock skinny jeans and I can't - I just look so off! Curse these hips. XD
Larissa-Bright Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I think you need to be fairly confident to rock fishnet armbands - wish I could! My arms are better off hidden.
