Monocycle by gamera1985 Monocycle by gamera1985
The only "bicycle" which doesn't need to use your hands: the monocycle!!!

I got the idea this summer, after watching Kaleido Star , which is a really good anime. It's about a girl who wants to enter into a circus (which is like "le cirque du soleil"). It's funny, colorfull and a great animation! =D

In fact here, the girl is wearing dungarees like the heroine, Sora, in most of the anime ^^ The scene comes from the half-episode cut, where Sora is training on a moncycle.

I'm particulary proud of the coloration of this pic, because it's really full of colors.

EDIT: monocycle means unicycle in french

It's incredible! I love it.

You know, hands are overhyped. You CAN use iPod and unicycles with no hands. (Where do you think the phrase "Look ma, no hands!" came from) In fact, I'm typing this with my feet.

How in the hell does she change songs? O.o?

This is excellent. I especially like her shadow. She looks like Nami from 'One Piece'. Is that intentional? -Aqua

I'd like to know how she achieved to get on the monocycle if she doesn't have hands to hold it still and get on it.

Pretty amazing job with the coloring. You really paid a lot of attention to details on the clothes as well as shading. Thumbs up for that! :thumbsup:
Very cute face expression too. :D

ça me fait bizarre de discuter d'un truc que j'ai fait fait y'a 4 mois ^^; j'ai l'impression que depuis, je fais beaucoup de mes dessins comme ça (même si celui là regorge particulièrement de couleurs).

merci en tout cas ^^

Sorry but I do believe you mean Unicycle not Mono-cycle, Mono-cycles or (Mono-wheels) are gas powered wheels that you sit in. Check this link out Monowheels
