Halloween 2015 by NicGiraffe Halloween 2015 by NicGiraffe
I have mixed feelings about this sketch, but wanted to upload something in time for the holiday because I love Halloween. I thought Cakeless Pixels' original fan character Rene "Papa Doc" Blanchet would be the perfect subject since he happens to be a houngan (voodoo priest). I know real voodoo isn't like Hollywood voodoo, but I've always liked the spooky imagery of the houngan in his suit and creepy skull makeup. So I tried emulating that here.

If I can come up with a real title for this I will.

Papa Doc belongs to :iconcakelesspixels:

I'm glad you think so, because his character is pretty much supposed to be. :)

OMG I love this! Thank you so much! XD He looks perfect! This is a perfect thing to see on Halloween. I feel like it'd be his favorite holiday if they had Halloween in the Sonic world. XD Although I would love it if they had something like Halloween in their world.

His creepy skull make up is great, too.  It is a great image for Halloween. :D

Again thank you so much for this. I really love it and I know Papa Doc's ego would be perfectly sated by it LOL.

You're very welcome! Thank you. Yeah, I think he'd love Halloween too (Sonic: "Everyday is Halloween for that guy.")! Oh I would too. In fact I've been trying think of a Halloween analogue that would make sense for Mobians to celebrate.

I realized he probably wouldn't need to put that much makeup on since his fur's already white.

It's no problem. =D Haha, I bet it would be!

LOL That sounds like something Sonic would say. I think Halloween would just be a holiday Papa Doc would love just because he likes freaking people out. It's the one day of the year everyone's like "Well, you're allowed to freak people out. We'll be considerably less annoyed when you do it." Hmm, if I come up with anything for a Mobian Halloween idea, I'll let you know. I might go research the history of Halloween for ideas. :D I did like the idea you had for the holiday similar to Thanksgiving. Now I just sorta wanna figure out different holidays for the Mobian world. It's kind of fun.

That's true! His face is already ready for painting it into a skull with his fur color.

I know I've said it before, but seriously, thank you so much! I love it. XD

Sonic's pretty easy to figure you. LOL, I think he'd love it too. Our bootleg Mobian Halloween should be right up his alley. It is a lot of fun! I want do something for winter/Christmas now

Aww, anytime. It was my pleasure! :)

PAPA DOOOOOOC! He is looking quite spiffy and handsome in his outfit; he looks ready to cause some mischief as he welcomes you to the graveyard. I also like how tall he is for some reason; I think that adds to his character and really shows how intimidating he can be in his own way. I like your vision of him, man! :)

And I still ship him with Papa John lol.

That he does, my friend, that he does. It's totally what I was aiming for. XD Yeah; I don't want him him to be too tall since he's like a bunny rabbit (so if he was standing next to a bigger critter like Lupe or my unicorn OFC, he'd be noticeably shorter), but he's definitely taller then someone like Sonic or Sally. Lilikoi created such a great character here, and he was begging to be drawn!

Ohohohohoho I bet his height would definitely give him some leeway and advantages over other characters; it can get other people to pay attention to what he's saying and listen well! I say that your vision of this guy is so spot on of Lilikoi's charrie. Rock on! ^^

That's a good point. Although of course some pple don't need height to get others to listen to them, in this case it not only works for him, but you know he'd definitely use it to his advantage like you said. Thank you!
