And she became something else!

It was just supposed to be a series of quick sketches to practice the human (or a humanlike) form, but Calamity refused to just be a sketch. No, she demanded to be at least colored! It took about 20 minutes and it very rough, but still. I'm quite pleased with the way she turned out. :) She's a Sam-thro! Humanoid versions of your favorite Sammies! I shrunk her wings because I liked how her arm turned out. I'm in a life drawing class and this was a pose used by one of the models!

So... what do you guys think? :o

Really lovely. :D I love the movement of the color, and man - that expression is burning! Makes ya think she could leave smoking holes with those eyes!

Hehe, Calamity certainly would demand more difficult things, wouldn't she? ^^ And I may be a bit biased, but I love the sketch; the roughness captures her energy so well, and her pose and expression is somewhere perfectly between mischievous teasing and evil plotting...I'm almost afraid to let her see it, lest she gets any more ideas from it. XD

Thanks guys! Her leg's a little long, I think, but not bad for a quick sketch! :D I'm sure Rend is quite happy with his... ahem... lovely daughter! :lol:

Nice! I love the colours, and especially love the flame hair.

Lovely lady! Love that hair and the feisty attitude you captured there. She doesn't look like someone you'd want to mess with. Very nice for a quick sketch! Do share more if you anthroize more Sams!

It's Cuddle! A work in progress, but I intend to finish her sometime later today, after the birthday party! She's all like, "SQUEE BABY! <3" The baby in her arms is supposed to be Searing and Hiss' baby, and he'll get cleaned up to look more like a Sammy and less like a football with eyes. XD

After Cuddle's done, who should I do next? :o

Oh my! That is so Cuddle! She'd love to cuddle and coo at the little baby! So happy! And baby just...does not quite know what to think of this pink cooing thing... And I see his little 'gryph buddy too! So cute! Thank you!

Ooh, birthday party? Have fun! May it be much more enjoyable than your actual birthday was!

Hmm...perhaps Sushi's Glint? Or CosmicDragon's Plunge?

It's hard to do happy looking solid eyes, but I think she looks pretty happy. XD She's mostly pink because, well, gray looked just so depressing and white wouldn't show up very easily! So she's tickled pink. :D

We're getting FRUIT PLATTERS FOR BIRTHDAY WHOO HOOOOOO

Glint would be fun, I think, and Plunge too! So many ideas~ I hope neither of their owners would mind!

Plunge is totally laughing his butt off right now. XD Seems to think it's funny that someone suggested him for art. But you're more than welcom to have a go at him if you like!
Though I must say, for my own personal sams, I'm pushing forward Regrets. She such an adorably sad little thing. <3

These are delightful! So many bright colors, hehee. <3 A wonderful idea, too, methinks. Life drawing classes rock so hard, they really work wonders. XD I have to say.. If you do draw Regrets... Perhaps Scythe could poke his silly little head in, as well? <3 He does so love... uh... his lovely lady. His. Right. >> -pokes him-

Scythe and Plunge would be so badass, and maybe LV's Misery! I won't have time to do any more until Thursday, but I plan on it. ;)

Oh man, how did I miss this post? These guys are awesome XD XD And I love the colors on them, especially on Calamity! If you're still doing them, I'd love to see Glint sometime!

Just give me a brief description of Glint's personality, and I'd love to give him a whirl!
