hangover II by starsandpolkadots hangover II by starsandpolkadots
First art of 2012. HAPPY NEW YEAR, FOLKS! :heart: I can only hope that you're feeling better than these three idiots. :D

In a nod to my last year's New Year drawing. [link] These fools just won't learn from their past mistakes.
I'm quite happy with how this turned out. I know there are many flaws and that it's not perfect and the lighting makes no sense and blabla but I'm amazed that I actually managed to finish something, considering that I'm suffering from a tiny hangover as well. xD Still, I might refine some things later. :3

I love to imagine that James is in some sort of a coma/vegetative state here. He doesn't move but he occasionally blinks and when you poke him, he's all "Eeeeh.".

Characters are mine. Art is mine. Drawn in Photoshop CS2 with a Wacom Bamboo. Textures from ~struckdumb and Bittbox. :) Carpet pattern is also NOT mine but I honestly can't remember where I got that one. If anyone recognizes and knows it, tell me, please! All I remember is that it was free to use. xD

Btw, if you're interested, here's a glimpse into the process of this thing. :)

Oh god, I've started quite a few New years looking like that, waking up in someone else's bed in someone else's house with four other people, a bathtub, a garden, and a train going up to London. I love this look, especially around James' eyes.

I think we can label it as fun, but I'm just like these guys; I never learn.

And that's exactly how we all looked this morning, after my roommate b-day party... xD
I guess nobody ever learns from the past mistakes when it comes to drinking and there's always gonna be another hangover of a lifetime. ;)

Wahnsinnsbild :heart: :+favlove:
Die Linearts und die Perspektive sind ein Traum.
Die Posen und Gesichtsausdrücke von allen dreien sind wie immer supi, aber mit James hast Du für mich den Vogel abgeschlossen :giggle:
Wünsch Dir ein super feines Neues Jahr :)

Oh my gosh, your babies are just SO CUTE. Even when they're not having their best day ever.. and probably wanting to stay sprawled on the floor like cats.. yeah. Urgh but your art continues to be PHENOMINAL. With a whole completed background too! (Or as "completed" as you're going to get with the floor. But it's still some real solid matter! I don't know what I'm saying anymore, nevermind.)
You do your hair so pretty, I was in awe at your process tutorial. ;__; Using the light lines against all that darker shading, shit. James is my favorite out of the miserable three, biased or not. He just looks precious being the first one to stare out into the light. Poor things! But beautiful work as always, welcome back and all that. ;v; :+favlove:
