Baby It's Cold Outside by ThirdPotato Baby It's Cold Outside by ThirdPotato

So I was originally going to do this thing in full color, but then decided I'd just throw on some spot blacks, and "throwing on" turned into full out spotting the whole piece and just coloring flats... XDD I dunno how I feel bout it in the end. I think I lost a lot of the fun detail and cleanliness I had in the lineart [link] so I'll probably just scrap this junk and color the darned thing (edit: but due to recent comments I've been convinced otherwise! LoL). Anyway just a cute lil piece of Ernie and Susie skating to "baby it's cold outside" because it seems like a super cute fitting song for the two.

I went all out cuz I was kinda drawing this for *Celestial298 as sorta a thank you gift for giving me Susie for the use of Pompfiction, cuz it means a lot to me. I spent a good 6 hours on the spot blacking and inking alone lol. Enjoy!

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-12-09
Baby It's Cold Outside by =fyuvix "You don't often see such a strong comic-style in the Anthro gallery, especially one with awesome spot-blacks." Such a heartwarming and cozy winter scene! The use of contrast creates a wonderful illustrative and graphic unity. ( Suggested by ChaosKomori and Featured by Katmomma )

Oh my gosh this is gorgeous! I loved how it's colored, and the line weight to everything and how you used the lines to show the darker areas.

Also congrats on the DD! That's really exciting and I'm happy for ya! 8DDD

Oh oh this. . . .this is beautiful. I've always had a soft spot for black shading like this and the line art is just beautiful. I mean really :heart:


Lol my comment makes no sense so I'll stop and keep staring at this. <3

Oh I just noticed the faint white outline around their heads! Very nice touch :D

this has a beautiful look to it, almost looks like an old print
the black inks are so bold, not something you see all the time, but add this striking quality that just can't be ignored

the dynamicness of the two skaters is wonderful, it is just so great at showing their motion...I also noticed all the woodland creatures dotted around the picture.. a rather nice touch that just adds to the scene of a 'winter wonderland'
the white splatter looks nice with the black background as well

and finally, congrats on the DD, this one deffinatly deserves it!

Awesome. ^_^ The way you drew the scenery reminds me of ukiyo-e. Japanese woodblock like Hiroshige and Houksai's work. Cool characters. :D

Thanks so much!! And to be compared to a Hokusai piece haha that's awesome! Thankye kindly. I am a fan of that style for its simplicity, and yet somehow detailed look, even in flat colors.
