Nuzlocke: Alexial + Brendan Character study by cocoaferret Nuzlocke: Alexial + Brendan Character study by cocoaferret
'Character study' is an awfully pretentious word. These are more just, like, expressions XD

In all seriousness, it has been practically MONTHS since I've done any nuzlocke-related art! In that time my art has improved a little more, so I'm getting a feel for drawing Alexial and co. in a slightly different way.

Alexial is still a jerk and Brendan is still a dork. Nothing's changed there :P

And Steven can just get out. I'm changing that fool's hairstyle and I'm not going to draw him for a long time.

I like that you've made the differences in their faces show more (if that makes any sense) :)

I love "the Brendan" you draw and create, he's clumsy sometime and all,but he's nice guy.I like the way you draw him, it's enjoyable and it somehow reminds me about some cartoons I watched when I was kid, so it has some of sentimental value. "Alexial" is likeable heroine, she's got character, I like that she's not a plain paper-like or "perfect" Marry Sue. Otherwise it wouldn't be interesting at all. Even when you mention that something is not like it should be or your not totally happy with something,don't worry, when I read your nuzlocke I would not notice it if you didn;y say so.
I'm looking forward your next works!

Can't wait for arc two! You have earned yourself a new watcher. Also, am I the only one rooting for Alexial/Brendan? >_>

Have I told you how much I love the way you portray Brendan as a dork? No? Well it's the absolute best thing in the world. He's so cute and awkward you can't help but feel bad for him most of the time. Also, that Brendan angry face is the most adorable thing I've seen today.

Your art is the best thing I've seen on deviantart. I watch yuumei and all those other big-name artists, but as beautiful as their work is, yours seems more... real, more close and accessible and raw to us measly sketchers. I really love seeing anything by you pop up into my inbox, and I know everybody loves getting encouraging comments, especially from lurkers such as moi, so I thought I'd drop you a comment to tell you that even us lurkers who are nothing but figures on the right-hand side of the page love you :heart: Your expressions, your hair, your digital line-art, and your watercolors are especially dear to me.

Tutorials are a lot of hard work, but I'd just love to see... I dunno, screenshots, of how your process works with hair. Haaaaiiiiir! Your hair looks like... a character all on its on. When you draw hair, it looks lively in itself; it's not just something on the page, it's real and vibrant. You really get the... flow of it, I suppose. Your expressions are out of this world as well, but I guess I just think an expression tutorial would be more difficult than hair.

But either way. I was first attracted to your page by the nuzlocke, which I've watched since the first comment, but just... I love you. Don't stop drawing. Congrats on college. You're a legend in my eyes.

Oh my gosh ahhhh. Oh my goodness this is really such a sweet, beautiful, wonderful comment-- thank you! It really means so much to me that you can enjoy what I create, and hearing how you feel about it really keeps me going. Thank you so much for your support! :heart:

Don't worry about it! I like to hear how I might be able to help, and tutorials are actually really fun~ I get what you're saying, it took me a while to understand hair; but now that I do, drawing it has become second nature XD More importantly, if I were to make a tutorial, what medium would you like to see it in? I draw hair differently in ink than I do in pencil, and again differently in photoshop! Any specific medium, or just hair in general? :)

Again thank you so much for the amazing comment. In all honesty it's awesome, kind people like you that inspire me to keep going! :heart:

Oh, you're so welcome! You do all the mediums I love! I love watercolor although I range from being good to suckish depending on how much time and practice I put in (though that's normal, of course), and your digital art is gorgeous, and your pencil art too! That's why I love you; you do such a broad spectrum of... stuff. I'm a notorious lurker. I never post my appreciation. But your facial expression and hair and colors and ngh I loves. So you're welcome, it really is no problem for me to post. Especially since I know how it feels when I get compliments of my singing or writing :heart: It feels good and you're so awesome you deserve to feel good

I actually personally don't own a tablet and won't until Christmas, so for selfish reasons I get a lot more out of traditional art tutorials ;u;

Apfffff yes lets just.... Not draw them ;w;

My problem is the structure of his hair. It's really tedious to work with, and having to draw it from a bunch of different angles is a real pain in the butt :(

If you change his hair to something easier, it'll be awesome to see the change and be easier on you~
