I didn't know what to name it so I just thought of characters and creatures that have the one thing in common that I wanted to get in this picture: They're all up to no good. They can be benovelent and helpful at times, but what they like most is a good prank.

I was originaly only coloring it to practice coloring, but I thought it would be a ood idea to finish it up for the contest to show my "re-discovery" of my color pencils. This is now how I will color things :3

The background is bland because I didn't want to take away from the spirit-creature thing. It also looks like a certain Pokemon...I was wanting to olor it purple, but I colored it green so it wouldn't look as much like a Pokemon. Someone still noticed that it still looked like on though. I ddn't use any references and it looks like a Pokemon by accedent.
For some reason I also think of Psychonauts when I look at must be the nose.

I had problems scanning it because the paper must have not been cut evenly so I had to fix two of the edges in photoshop the paper was from a grab bag from an art meet and I wanted to test the paper out and it ended up being this. I love the paper because it has such an even grain. When I look at a traditional drawing or painting, I like looking at grains....especially color pencil. I get dissapinted when I find an awsome color pencil drawing, but the image is too small to see he grain of the paper. I love paper grain. I used to fight it and try to color hard so there would be no white spots...but I like the white spots on drawings now.
The paper would have been free but i had to pay $10 to go to the art meet, but getting to hear James Farr speak was worth the $10 itself. Hopefuly I can get more goos stuff when I go next time.

Prismacolor color pencils on awsome paper.

"They're all up to no good. They can be benovelent and helpful at times, but what they like most is a good prank." = They're tricksters.

That's what the archetype all these characters embody is called.

And it's the best gosh-darn archetype ever, if you'd ask me. >:3

You captured the archetype's essence very nicelly, too. :)

Thanks so much :D
Yep, I knew about them, in fact I have a collection of short stories about them :3
It's called The Coyote Road, and I highly reccomend it. I'm happy that you appreciate this archetype as much as I do :)

You have amazing coloring skills, I'm so jealous :)
But I've always been jealous of your awesomeness so I guess that's nothing new ;)

I love the playfulness of this, it looks great.

:aww: Your stuff is awesome too, you know ><
Can't wait for more comics and your digital work could eat mine for a snack :O

I had fun testing out my new color pencil method :D

:) thanks

color pencil method? It looks really good!
I'm terrible with traditional media, especially colored pencils.

Traditional media takes time to learn and I'm assuming that computer work does too. I started using Prismacolor color pencils in 7th grade, then started to really use them my first year in highschool. It's just now that I have finally begun to understand them. I would really like to see some of your traditional drawings though :3

I guess I don't do too many traditional drawings, just usually sketches or school stuff. For me, traditional methods are too unforgiving should a mistake be made, whereas computers are easier when it comes to fixing (mostly)

But I should start practicing with different medias more often.

Traditional media may be unforgiving, but they're quite rewarding :3

:) that's very true.
Plus it's more of a 'hands on' activity :D
