I love cats! I love all sorts of cats, but one of my favourite is the Birman cat!!!
With their fluffy white manes, poofy tails and little white toes with a cuddly personality to boot, how can you not find them lovely?!? :’D
Oh my God, what a pretty kitty and lovely stretching! It looks so flooofy~ ;w;
suddenly niki brought back memories to this song
Thought I’d kill several birds with one stone with this study. First, foreshortening, because MAN is it tricky. I used the coil method Sycra has described in one of his latest tutorial videos, and it was a great help.
I also wanted to try and convey a sense of depth and mass when using lineart. I sometimes worry I lose the weight of the actual subject as I draw with thick lines. And I haven’t forgotten that critique I recieved from artisticadvice, I definitely need to work on more male models! the image I used from this can be found here!
So..um, yeah. Studies and things. Blah.
OH MY GOD. My jaw literally fell open in real life
WOW JUST….WOW NIKI IM SO PROUD OF YOU GHJsghjs
this actually looks really good dhjkdaaaaaa
Happy Birthday, Mirre! You’ve done a lot over the past year! You’re very hardworking, passionate and damn creative. You do so much to help people learn what you know with your tutorials, and you You continue to be an inspiration not only to myself but to many other fans. For that, you definitely deserve to have a great day today! Enjoy your birthday! <3

No no, not cancelled. But it will probably not be a second season of it - this is something we’ve known for quite some time now. Was just a bit sad to get reminded of that fact today on the MC-tag UnU

icetigris answered your question: Anyone got any Rayon and The Duke headcanons?
I think their speed gangs have a love/hate relationship. Sorta how the Duke and the Burners interact, but they’re much closer.
kanashimibeast replied to your post: Anyone got any Rayon and The Duke headcanons?
Rayon never gets invited to Duke’s karaoke nights because he can sing really well and the Duke doesn’t want him stealing the spotlight. But he gets invited to all of Duke’s parties and gets dragged off for some “alone time” afterwards *wink wink*
guttersvoice answered your question: Anyone got any Rayon and The Duke headcanons?
rayon has a huge crush on mike (but thats canon so)
nikipaprika replied to your post: Anyone got any Rayon and The Duke headcanons?
Rayon pretends to be bothered by the Duke’s impulsiveness, but it’s something he finds oddly alluring. It’s the unpredictability of of the Duke’s actions that makes Rayon want to “toy” with him (possibly into some “unexpected” situations ewe)
oh I love all of these, guys you are too creative<3
nikipaprika replied to your post: isn’t it fun, when some asshole felt like posting…
do you have any clue as to who did this, or where they posted your link?
Yes I actually do.
I just checked my e-mail and saw that I was “mentioned” in someone’s post on a website called “DayViews” (previously known as Bilddagboken.se) by a user called Marik Ishtar, however, I couldn’t view the post because he had his account set to “friends only” mode. But I am actually quite sure that person is the source behind the sudden hoard of trolls in the LS-chat. I’m a bit happy it didn’t come via Tumblr at least.

Now there is an idea! ^^ You ahve to show us when you are done.
of course I’m gonna show you.
And asdafjksdf the drawing is turning out so hot right now I don’t even know what to do it’s too much aaaaaaaaa
Okay so these are a little bit meh because they’re both first attempts at humanising Scar and Mufasa, and I wasn’t trying to stylise them too much so they seem a bit boring and rushed.
It’s more to prove a point in how much facial structure can make it easy to tell two characters apart and say a lot about who they are personality wise.
ooh really good :D
One thing you should be careful about when it comes to scar is that it’s easy to make him look a lot like Jafar (since they both have narrow head shape). Also, I think it might be a good idea ot make the eyes on mufasa a tad smaller. His bangs resemble Simba’s a little bit more as well. Lol sorry I’m just being picky with the details haha.
A protip is to check out the character sheets and concept art on TLK-characters, it often shows you the process and hints on what is their main features.
Also, it’s good to know things like that scar is slightly based on the voice actors face apparently, so check that out as well :) sometimes animated movies tend to base the character design on the voiceactor (but that does not go for all characters of course).
Oh no I don’t have a list for them. Maybe inside my head lol.
The OCs I nowadays have is 6 characters; Miré, Hugin, Atalgádyan, Shaka-Bella, Ronya and my NSFW-OC Gun.
However, I’ve had plenty of OC’s when I was younger. I was a lot into Digimon and similar shows when I was around 12-14 years old. So when I created new OCs, they were always a whole group of 6 people in each “gang”. So you can imagine that I had quite a lot of characters, although I’ve forgot most of them. But the oldest ones, Miré and Shaka, are still going strong.
I’ve still been consciously thinking about style, so decided to sorta do some experiment doodles with just how I feel like I want to draw, just letting the lines flow and not fretting about everything. Originally the plan was to just sketch, but then I liked the drawings that came out of it.
While Sally (the last one) bugs me, since I feel the style doesn’t really fit with the other two, (so note to self, perhaps exaggerate her eyes/lips more), I still like the way these turned out!
If you like the result, or just like the way you work with the drawings, then you are on the right track!! This is really good, Niki!
Tbh, I recognize your style a lot in all of them, but the one to the right feels a bit less “alive” compared to the other two. Maybe because of her expression I dunno.
This is probably the best effective way to actually find your style, for some people, they might have a developed style but aren’t that aware of it. So doing this little “exercise” might be a way to show yourself that, hey, your drawings got some personality!
Moar of this plz<3
(btw I should totally do this as well… feels like I get too bothered by fixing the anatomy that I loose the fun part in drawing)
