What do you mean it's been more than a year since I posted art of Lai?
Haha yeah though, Lai is my fallback experimental character and I usually don't/forget to post those, oops.
The title is directly related to the art actually- I didn't sketch this beforehand so it's not sketch, get it get it??
Haha I wasn't intending to do two layers of shading on this but then it ended up working out that way. I used airbrush for the lighting which looks best on the greys and isn't quite as noticeable on the darker colors. Oh well.
The nice thing is after completing this I got the inspiration I needed to continue with another project, yeah~

You freehanded this? Color me super impressed like dang. This looks great ping ahh wow. It looks so clean and polished and the anatomy is pretty on so good for you for doing this without a sketch! Lai is a cutie I love him and his colorful little wings and monochrome design 'u' And your shading is gorgeous, the airbrushing works really well even on the darker spots! I like it, he looks great.

Ahhh thanks! An improvement in art really helped, last time I drew him was late April 2014 and just. So bad man, the more I look at that old art the more I'm just dying inside. Glad you like this one though! The background was fun to make, I got to mess with brushes and colors, yes~

AHHHH. This is so cool o h my god???? Wow I love this so much??
Omg though holla to the fallback experimental characters! eue My favorite types of characters.
It's so hard to believe you didn't sketch this beforehand??? I'd die, omg. Freehanding is so difficult but you made this look so amazing despite that????? Gosh though I keep scrolling back up to look at this, this is so gosh darn cool. *w*

Eeee thank you! Yes, Lai very often gets the test run of everything, aha. Experimental characters are awesome to have.
Haha yeah, normally my sketches are incredibly sloppy and make no sense to anyone else so to draw something without one was interesting. But it's a great skill to have for those music memes man.
Ehehe glad you like it ;v;

Sometimes the experiment goes wrong though and the character ends up with inverted fingers. poor finale and his inverted fingers. O mg no that was a bad joke I apologize for the pain that just caused to the joke world.
I remember doing one of those music memes eons ago. I could never get past sketching but at the same time i kinda was terribad at sketching. I may redo that one of these days, aha. My sketches have gotten neater over the years?? It may come from the fact I do a lot of colored sketches, laUGHS.

Bad jokes are well appreciated in my section of the joke world :'D
Colors sketches are the best Aaaaaa but yeah I do music memes on occasion, I usually just draw all the images on the same canvas with different layers though and I'm too lazy to actually compile and post them |D
