Lackadaisy Pastiche

By tracyjb
Strayed from my usual approach to try something a little more in cartoon territory for Lackadaisy characters. I wish I had been more daring with the shapes overall, but it felt like good exercise anyway. I get lost in the process of over-rendering things for the comic. It's important to conscientiously try something different now and then.

For once, my PSD source file was neatly arranged with silhouettes, lines, colors, details, and texture on separate layers, so I've made that available for $2+ Patreon supporters.

Lackadaisy is on Patreon - there's extra stuff!

I love how you simplified each character while still retaining the essence of each one’s personality. Seeing them all laid out like this really highlights the diversity of your designs. There’s so much variety in shape, body type, height, posture, etc, so they would all still be recognizable even by silhoutte alone. Excellent work! ^^

The cartoon take worked fairly well. The personality has stayed with the characters as well as your visual talents, thanks for sharing!

Add a witty phrase to each, and they'd make EXCELLENT buttons, magnets, mugs, stickers, etc. I love this style, and it lends itself well to merch. :D

Huh, the art style kinda remind me of an animated film I watched years ago called Cats can't Dance (at least I think it was that)

Dig the more cartoony style, there's a lot of flow to the figures. The shading you went with suits it well.

These are awesome!!! They'd make great stickers. I love how everyone's character came out in a simpler fashion, but they still carry the Lackadaisy flair. I love it!!!

These came out great! Seems like a really great exercise to keep your designs loose and alive!
