Re-up: Cherry and Ponyboy by suzanami Re-up: Cherry and Ponyboy by suzanami
{ETA: I've uploaded a slightly larger image since this fanart is so popular, updated with current URLs where my work can be found. even though the file with the outdated URLs is the one that's getting redistributed without credit CURSE YOU! }

i still really like this, despite the terrible copypasta sunset bg. it's cherry valance and ponyboy curtis from the outsiders. cherry's arms have issues here, but other than that i wouldn't really change anything about this. i think it really captures how i see their relationship.

I really like this! Could you give me some tips on how to do the hands better? I'm horrible at drawing hands and people holding stuff, and you seem to do that very well, so... yeah...
suzanami Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2012
hands are one of the hardest things to draw because we see them ALL THE TIME so every slight flaw stands out. also they're just difficult things to get the hang of. there's a couple tips:

1. observe observe observe. watch people's hands, how they move, how they position them. pose your own hands and draw from them, or if it's from a different angle take a photo with your phone or digital camera or webcam for reference!
2. look up how-to-draw-hands tutorials on dA. there's bazillions of them. look at a bunch until you find one that's similar to your approach to drawing. copy them all. trace them. draw the example hands over and over and over to practice.
3. simplify. a lot of those tutorials will go into excruciating detail on how to draw hands. simplify them!

I loved the Outsiders, and I honestly thought that Cherry and Pony would get together! Thats why, on my page, I wrote about a fanfiction that I hope to finish, and there will definately be a relationship in store!
Anyway, I really love this! Sooooooooo CUTE!

Ponyboy's supposed to have blonde hair.... \:
suzanami Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
this wasn't meant to literally be the scene before the rumble where he talks to cherry. it's just a drawing of the two of them. so i went with the natural color of pony's hair because it sounds like a really lovely color/style. /shrug

I just finished the book today. :D
I adore this picture! :D

It's so adorable ^.^. I really like it and I agree with you, it accurately portrays their relationship. I wanted to Cherry to end of up with Ponyboy but now that I think about it, it's not realistic.

"Well we dont need your damn charity!"
"Pony! I wasn't giving charity! I thought you were nice from the start... Wouldn't you help me if you could?"

. . .

"Can you see the sunset real good from the south side?"
"Yeah, real good."
"You can see it from the north real good, too."
"Thanks, Ponyboy. You dig okay."


How cute! ^_^ Very nice, even though I dont like Cherry. This is a really nice picture, though!

There's a lot of people out there who support Ponyboy and Cherry as a couple, huh?

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
The golden background made me think of the poem, and Johnny sayin; for Ponyboy to stay gold.

did you draw this before or after you saw the movie???
suzanami Featured By Owner May 9, 2011
uhh, i think i had seen the movie but it had been a while? i drew it shortly after rereading the book in college.

Johnny is not a pussy. And Cherry is a bitch, I agree with beachgirl97. She talked about her friends in front of a boy she couldn't talk to at school because of who she is. That's not right, and I think most people should understand that. Johnny killed somebody to protect his friend.. do you ever think you could do that?
MicaelaWho Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2011
Oh!!!! I thought i was the only one who shipped it!!!!! it's awesome!!

dallas is an asshole. johnny is a pussy. you're kind of immature to appreciate the depths of the characters.

This captured exactly what they looked like! Also I like how you said this was good, i mean, most people on deviantart say how "Lazy" they were or how "bad" there art is just to get compliments.
