"C'mon, babs! Gizza big smile fer the camera!"
"O-oh, like... like this?"
"Bonzer! They're gonna love ya!"
Heyoo~! So, back in January I started working on a sequel of sorts to Fittttt and Littttt, which I'd already been working on since the previous month:
You can see the similarities in the basic structure, I'm sure. And it generally went better than the previous pic, so I ended up just wanting to finish this one instead! But I felt I should finish the first one, first. You know? And I mean, it took a few months, but it's done now, so it was time to finish these two crocogirls. However, this one's shading had already been finished, so it just needed a background, some backlighting, and some tweaks.
But this time I was inspired by someone else's anthro Sandile - now you don't see anthro Sandile all that often, but this one had very pretty eyes (and grotesquely over-exaggerated proportions, but anyway). So I drew my own. As for the Totodile, she's a design I drew a couple of times in Don't Break the Chain:
She's Australian now, I guess. I don't love how she turned out here (some of the proportions are just off), but it was kind of too late to change them. On the other hand, I DO love how Sandile turned out! She's extremely cute. I think the eyes do a lot for the picture as a whole. Also, look! A proper, fully-rendered, REAL, BACKGROUND!!! Yeah, I originally intended to do a fudged, out-of-focus, vaguely tropical backdrop in the same kind of style as Big Lass' background:
But I suddenly decided to try something a bit more realistic. A view of a beach, looking out to sea, is a pretty simple landscape. The most difficult parts are the surface of the water (which I just fudged since it's not that visible anyway) and the white froth at the shore. I'm actually quite proud of what I managed to do for that. I basically experimented with a bunch of spattery brushes, i.e. fiddling with brush spacing, angle and size jitter, and such, to make them look the part. I found the perfect brush out of the paint spatter brushes I downloaded all the way back in 2015. And to finish it off, I did an Iris Blur around the edges, something I'm not usually a fan of but thought would look nice here if done tastefully.
I have one more unfinished anthro Pokemon pic, this time one I started in April... that one's nowhere near finished, though...
