SO SO SO LATE, SORRY :iconnuttyjigs: but it's finally here!! My part of our art trade for :iconanimefanartchallenge: - I hope you like it!

I know the anatomy leaves much to be desired, but I tried to do a more challenging pose for this piece. I think that's the reason why it took so long... I wasn't as confident in it as I should have been. But I think it's turned out nicely! I'm pretty proud of it.

Any advice on clothes shading would be much appreciated though. I struggled my way through it >_< so, gentle constructive criticism is welcomed!

Here is :iconnuttyjigs: 's half of the art trade, her amazing job on Alex Louis Armstrong and Alphonse Elric from FMA <3

Baw, thank you! :icontearplz: Oh, yeah, it's fun isn't it LOL. I'm nearing my graduation ceremony so I'm still pretty busy at the moment, but I wanted to finish the picture before I went a-travelling. <3 So, mission accomplished! And yes, practice practice practice!

It is a difficult pose, but I don't know if I could do any better. It would probably be hard to find a good photo reference. It's making me want to try though. :) (I'm always stealing other people's ideas!)

As for clothes shading, I usually think of it like shading a cylinder or some other such object, except trying my best to follow the contours where things stick out (like bosoms or elbows or whatever). I really struggle with it too.

But I just gave you credit for #34! ;)

Ah, you just reminded me of Hetalia picture on Zerochan that I used as a sort of reference, so I better link that. And go for it! I'd love to see how other people interpret a piggyback pose.

Yeah... I tried. XD I was just cellshading at first but it looked kinda boring, and then it got messy LOL. I'll work it out eventually. We just need more practice!

And thank you! :iconblushplz: (isn't it #24 though? Or did I sleepily read it wrong? hahaha)

*looks at reference* Interesting ... as I suspected, the "carrier" doesn't allow the "carried person's" butt to droop, while the "carried person" clings to the "carrier" by his thighs as tightly as he can to help prevent that from happening. Isn't drawing weird? You find yourself noticing all sorts of things you otherwise wouldn't.

I did find a somewhat embarrassingly titled (but entirely clean) photo of Zac Efron carrying some girl that way (I do not keep up on celebrities): [link]

But this is somewhat different from the Ouran and Hetalia situations -- on the one hand, you have a teenager or young adult carrying another of the same size and build. On the other, you have a clearly strong adult man carrying a clearly much lighter young woman.

Well, I'm intrigued. I may have to steal your idea when I draw Matsuoka Shun and Tachibana Chizuru of Kimi to Boku. Not sure which would be funnier, Shun carrying Chizuru or Chizuru carrying Shun! :D

No, I sleepily typed it wrong. :D It was #24 that I had given you credit for. Someday I really need to watch this show too, everyone seems to love it. I watched about two episodes and decided it wasn't for me, but I'll give it another chance. I'm curious to see the reference you linked also....

You're right! It's also funny that one person will pick up on certain aspects of a drawing, whereas someone else will completely skim over it (like I unfortunately did with the direction of Hikaru's and Kaoru's hair styles). I'll have to keep *actual* photo references in mind, albeit even if they are of Zac Efron LOL.

Either way, I can't wait to see your rendition of the pose. I've not seen Kimi to Boku, but the characters look like they'd pull off the cutesy piggyback, haha.

No worries. <3 And yes, I really do recommend it... I'm not a master on anime by any means, but Ouran was hilarious, and very different from any other anime I've seen. Although I found Kaichou wa Maid-sama! was also of the same kind of humour... it's very lighthearted silliness!

I really enjoyed Kaichou wa Maid-sama! to my surprise. The Three Idiots were my favorites, though Usui Takumi was also a constant laugh riot. Believe it or not, I watched that show because of my group! I had never heard of it until I stumbled on Takumi and Misaki, who were both popular enough to make our challenge list. You'll find them at #74. ;)

All of which is to say that I will one day get around to giving Ouran another chance. If you like that kind of show, I can also recommend Skip Beat! if you haven't seen it yet.
