Delivery by smiling-grouch Delivery by smiling-grouch
~Parara was super sweet to me at this last Kumoricon so I decided to reciprocate (poorly) her generosity with a drawing.

The guy leaping is her mute delivery boy and Parkour expert Carr and Gripe, his trusty sidekick.

After researching (because for some odd reason I'm blind to Carr and Gripe's reference sheet in her gallery), Carr seems to be drawn with Genevieve, *catgirlkari's OC. Personally I really like the two of them together. I really don't know any more than their character sheets offer, but they're still cute.

Thanks to Gripe, I've decided that I think Turkey vultures are cute, too. They're bald little heads are adorably wrinkly, like a pug dog.

Parara, I realize I never gave you a voice in how this thing was to turn out, so if you don't like it, I'll do a new one. I just went ahead and did a semi-realistic style since I guess my default style has changed.

The perspective is a little weird, but he does look like he just took a flying leap off a building which is good! Genevieve is supposed to look a little worried since I assume she's not used to people doing parkour because of her handicap. I wanted the feel that Carr was on a super urgent delivery.

Gripe, on the other hand, totally used to it. Just do a shoulder roll once hitting the ground and Carr will be fine.

Hope you like it, Parara. Thanks for your generosity again :) I hope this shows my gratitude.

Yup. I be messin' with perspective a lot. I'm glad you like it. Dramatic perspective is really hard.

OK. So, as far as your picture goes, I've got Ratboy colored himself, but I realized some things:

1) I forgot what his hair and eye color is. Also, what color is the tank crab?
2) I toootally gave him a gauged ear by accident. I think I misread my sketches. I hope that's okay. I might be able to paint over it.

Other than that he's going along pretty smoothly. He's going to have one hell of a detailed background, though. I'll do my best! *salute*

Hmm ... his hair's blond with black tips, and his eyes are grey. The tank crab is yellow, usually.

Haha, the ear sounds fine. I think of him as an indie/hipster college kid anyway.

I look forward to seeing it!! :salute:

Just hair, tail, and eyes to go. As soon as I get this done and the printer/scanner set up, we should be in business.

I'm glad I guessed right on that one. Genevieve was a very interesting character to read about on her little character sheet. :) Thanks for taking my hijack of her in stride, and I hope I did her well, even if she's only a little over an inch tall.

Yeah, I guess you would know about them, huh? Haha. I didn't consider that.

I'm glad that someone who knows the characters approves of this. Carr was weird to draw with his hair flying up since I'm used to seeing it in his face.

Yup considering I matched against Carr in Deadline XD

Yeah it does look different that way. I have once seen a doodle of his hair flat too but he did not look like himself like that X3
