Beaches
(by Tobias, Nov 1, 2004)
Meep, I guess it's probably not the kind of drawing one would expect for Halloween .. buuuuut .. I guess I like being in holiday mood (despite school ;_;), soooo .. here you go ^-^

Meepit is a little hard to draw, in my opinion, because she has a lot of detail on her fur, so it's kind of though including it all and not making here look overloaded with it, but that's pretty much it.

Lenore is © Lenore, Meepit is © herself

Lenore

Oh wow...I know I saw the sketch already, but this is still quite a surprise since you added so much to the finished product. ^-^ It's beautiful, I love how you drew Lenore rat the best! I like how you made her headband too, since it would probably clash a bit with her skirt if she were wearing it, but putting it in the air rather than leaving it out altogether adds a lot to the picture and givies it an even more 'fun' look. You drew Meepit very well too(I notice her markings aren't pure black, more of a dark navy, which makes her more colorful). The little drifting flowers are what add the most color, being mostly bright yellow and orange. =3 And the palm trees are really well done..meh, mine are pathetic, I see them so rarely that I forget how to draw them correctly. ^^; I see once again you added a little 'bonus' character, which in this case would be the crab, seeming to sneak away before he gets danced on. X3 The water is pretty with the sparkles on it. I wonder where they are..maybe in California? XD;
The only part missing from Lenore is her darkened ear tips, but now that I see her without them, she probably looks better this way..at least in this picture, I can imagine with them on she'd look less bright and colorful. ^^; Oh, and I hope Y____..er, Meepit.. doesn't mind her real name being on there, since she hates it I think. XP But I know she'll love the drawing either way, and I do too. Thank you so much! =3 Now I'll get onto DA so I can fave it X3

Aww, thanks for your nice comment ^-^ Hehe, you're right, it's more a dark blue instead of black, since .. well .. if I draw her markings all black, I can't really shade it well anymore, so I prefer just taking a really dark colour instead. I'll definitely add Lenore's marking, I can't believe I forgot them ^^; And they're not even on the sketch, how embarassing .. sorry for that ^^;
And you're right about her name too, I'll better remove it then (I edited it out of your post too, hope you don't mind ^^; ) .. thanks a lot for everything, it's muchly appreciated <3

Holy cow, I really love how the mouse is drawn out, very very cute, wonderful detail in her fur and for her tail, and the skirt looks great on her. ^^ The cat character also looks very cute, and you got so many specific designs down too... they looks absolutely wonderful. With such a bend in her back and with her hair bundle on her chest, it makes the top look too wide compared to the legs... though I'm sure you got it all correct, it just looks like that because of the fluff on her front. And the other thing is that her skirt doesn't really seem too attached to her either... maybe it's that whiteness behind the top left-hand part of the skirt that's throwing me off... or maybe the parted leaves... I don't know. But it really does looks splendid aside from that, even those things aren't that big of a deal. :3

The little designs and everything were a great touch to the picture too, brings a lot more festivity and spirit into their dancing, gives it more feeling and such. :3 And even with the star fish close by, it's totally easy to tell that it's on the ground. Other little things like the bucket and pale, the flag, the crab... all such nice little details you put in theire... Boy howdy did you do a great job on them. :P

The ocean's looking wavey indeed, with the white bubbleness of real wavs and the unperfectness of it.... it looks so grand. Ooh, yopu did wonderful with the grass... the two both have their own great qualities. The one on the right is a lot more bright and colorful, but the edge of the grass seems to have a few different colors that still stand out... but that's alright, sometimes when you cut grass it'll turn out that way. I liked the one on the left mucher so everly too because it's short, smooth, and well balanced in color... the shading on it's beautiful too, just strong enough. X3 Very well done Tobers, brilliant work.

Hiya Nishi ^-^

Thanks for your detailed critique, this sure does help a lot .. well, and what should I say? You're, of course, right with what you are saying, her top part I noticed looking too wide, pretty much when still doing the outlining .. I did remove a bit to make her appear a tad thinner, but still, I'd have to remove a whole lot more which would make the picture look odd ^^; And I see what you mean about the skirt, I'd do good reworking that part of the picture when I get back to it.
Oh, and thank you for your nice words as well, they're much appreciated .. and glad you liked the drawing ^-^
