No Ship For The Platonic by lillilotus No Ship For The Platonic by lillilotus
Hey look, it's that painting I did for my GCSE Coursework back in December! :D Hurray, it's finally uploaded! Double hurray!

I was focusing on portraits for my coursework, and while researching, I decided to do a piece on how men and women are drawn in individual portraits (i.e. the girl is pure, flowery, nature; the boy is strong, wealthy, dominant) I wasn't allowed to do manga at first (I needed to start with realism and progress to manga so it'd work) which meant that I needed models....and not wanting a war to start (i.e. 'draw me and my boyfriend'), I went to Pugz and Nikku, who are platonic (and constantly have to prove- *shot*), and asked them to be my models.

Designing Nikku's outfit; not a problem, and went off without a hitch! Designing Pugz' dress was....interesting....she doesn't wear dresses a lot, but she's ok with being drawn in them - but I still didn't want to get it wrong :S It was going to be pink, but we went with green and yellow in the end ^^; I think I could've done a better job on the faces though, since they're not as realistic as I would've liked, and I had a couple of problems with the bodies and posing. I couldn't get any posed model shots, so I had to use my imagination; and when you're drawing real people, I feel like I've got to get it right, lest I be scolded for drawing a chest that's too flat or something T.T (plus I drew Nikku too large and had to constantly redraw him down to size, and it's still not right now D: )

Either way, I had fun with it, and I still like looking at it ^_^ (just need to find a large enough folder for all my work now....)
