The Lorax




Anyone know who this is? ^_~ (if you look from this to the pic in the family album...it's strikingly similar...O.o)

I was looking through the album and I decided to use the Matazone family to practice my cartooning---and so this is my first picture...

Oh, and, who volunteers to be next?
gothictheysay
Ooh Mommy likes biggrin.gif biggrin.gif My only peeve is the chin line, I think it should be the same darkness and thickness as the other lines but it's your style!

You could do me next if you really want to tongue.gif
The Lorax
The thick black line I save for the outline...but yes i see your point Mommy Dearest.
Snugglebum the Destroyer
Surely that's Mr Teapot?

Yeah, I don't mean to pick, but i agree. The chin is kind of an outline though, as it is the edge of the body, it's just that theres more body behind it.
The Lorax
*DING DING DING* You sunk my battle ship. --Yes, Snuggle, it is Mr Teapot. Who else has that hat in the album?

The whole reason for doing it WAS indeed the hat...because it's shibby like that!

---

Greeneyes, that was the first pic in that style--so i'll try it a different way and see which I like more...
gothictheysay
Where is MrTeapot? I miss him...

But Keep up the good work my dearest. wub.gif
acid_rain_child
I miss Mr. Teapot too... where did he go off to?

*Just looked at album*

My god. I'm shocked. When you finally see pictures of these people you've been talking to all this time, it's a bit stifling. laugh.gif So I get to Mata's, and I'm expecting a nice picture or something, nothing too bad, I've seen him before, I know what to expect. I gasped. Freaked me out for a good couple seconds.

*Is finally realizing that everyone here is real blink.gif *
Snugglebum the Destroyer
I think it's nice to be able to put a face to a name.

I have to admit that a lot of people on there don't look anything like I thought they would. wink.gif
The Lorax
I dunno...he was shibby...*tear*
sjbbandgeek
I really need to keep better track of my noobs.
The Lorax
I present to you: Acid Rain Child-







--the avitar
gothictheysay
Yay! I like. I was looking for something to critique, but I couldn't really find anything unless you wanted to make both sides of the shirt collar the same.

Otherwise, good job. Also I just noticed - no noses on your style! That's quite interesting because your faces never seem distorted happy.gif
The Lorax
Yeah the shirt collar....it bugs me too...but i made it all into one layer--so i can't change it now...*sigh* oh well... hope she likes it! happy.gif

Ahh--yes no noses...i tried a few with noses, it didn't fit...so yea, no noses! dry.gif
but they're pretty darn spiffy anyway...in my opinion...
{Gothic Angel}
Ooh! Ooh! Do me! biggrin.gif
acid_rain_child
*Shivers in happiness* Oh my god, Lorax! That's amazing! You even did the shirt right! Wow... and my hair looks just like that! tongue.gif Oh, 'cept I don't have bangs, it's all one length, but it's shaggy and flippy like that. Ooo, but that one eye does look a little white-ish and weird...

ph34r.gif Can you see me from the other side of the computer screen? ph34r.gif
The Lorax
The World will NEVER know biggrin.gif tongue.gif rolleyes.gif


Alright Angel(remembered) I'll get crackin!

EDIT: DONE!






--and the Avi


biggrin.gif hope you like
acid_rain_child
That looks really good Lorax! You do such a good job! Is it hard? It looks hard.
gothictheysay
Yeah! Wow, how long do they take? I love 'em happy.gif
The Lorax
How Long you ask? Well less than thirty minutes my good people

Others: *gasp* ohmy.gif thirty minutes?!

Yes--it's amazing what you can accomplish with such a good looking bunch!

Other: *blush*


---
back to reality now... tongue.gif It really does only take thirty minutes...I do an outline with basic shapes--then i make a layer over that and do the black outlines, and then I do the coloring and condence the layers into one...cut out part of the picture and make the avitar-save and uplad them to photobucket.

So really it's not that hard! I do anime and stuff too... among other stuff--some of which is on my site on deviant art... http://www.detestablebutterfly.deviantart.com

...so yes...
Greeneyes
Hehehehe. Funny. I think she has green eyes though.
The Lorax
If she does--I couldn't tell--the pic wasn't that...ahem...colorful! happy.gif so my apologies! sad.gif
