Cuddle by Exarrdian Cuddle by Exarrdian
Ughh, I swear, I meant to draw something MANRY and ANGRY and with like action and guts and... yeah, happy pics! More lovey dovey pics cause, why not! We need more hugs. Go hug someone!

After Aries' sad, sad pic, it was time for some joyful moments! After all, there is a sunshine after every storm and now she is happy with a charming, impossibly smug, self proclaimed count! X'D
I really wanted to draw a very snuggly cuddle pic. I find hugs quite hard to draw. They either look loose or as if stick figures embrace in some awkward bone breaking dance. >>;
It was a good practice!

Paint tool SAI
Photoshop for minor edits.
About 5 hours in between watching movies.

Hugs are hard to draw but I think you did so well here! All snug and happy, also I like what you did with the picture's borders. 
 All these cuddly pictures are making me inspired and in need of a hug :lol:

This looks fantastic. :D Hugs are hard to draw, but you've managed to make this one both dynamic and natural-looking. As always, the lighting and shadows look amazing. Keep up the wonderful work. ^_____^

Thank you! :hug:
I feel like I had a hug-tastic weekend! X'D Got another one drawn but yet to post.
It was great practice!

Too cute! I really like the interaction in the pose - especially how they're squishing their faces together. I personally find drawing poses that look believably like the characters are actually touching to be really hard, so it's a great inspiration to see one of my favourite artists doing it so well! Plus I just love these two in general ;u;. Great stuff!

Great! I was so aiming for this squish-y feel we get in such hugs! :'D
They -are- hard! You have no idea how many edit/rotate/bring closer I've done with this sketch until I was happy with it. ^^;
Practice makes us better! Ariessa is an expressive emotional ball so she is my perfect test subject for squishy hug poses! X'D
