Hawkguy and Kate

here's another quick one from the ol' sketchbook. i thought it would be interesting to try to draw somebody giving a piggyback. its not a total success, but there's enough there that i know i can draw a better version if needed.

i'm also playing around with a more animated style, and see what drawing that way feels like. its an adjustment. you can see i fall back to my usual habits. i just have to wrap my brain around it.


(on another note, i don't know why piggybacks are such a romantic staple in anime and korean dramas. i would think carrying the girl the regular way would be more romantic since you're more face-to-face with the other person...)

This is an AWESOME style!

Artists can depict characters as being more emotive when they aren't locked in the rigidity of realism.

This is perfect. This is exactly how these two are with each other. Friends, loyal partners and constant pains in the ass to each other. I love it.
Dude, love this.

Dig the style, Mike! And I'm not sure about the piggyback thing either. Maybe it's like a nod to childhood enjoyment/innocence?
