New Angelica sketch!
In "cool girl" attire this time, slightly bored look in her eyes - maybe she's waiting for her boyfriend to take her to a movie, but he doesn't show up?
I personally wouldn't keep her waiting...  ;)

As always, quite a treat.  Did she make that top out of one of Lisa's old dresses?  The expression is very good, and the hair & shading don't disappoint.  Maybe her left arm seems a bit too far back to be in her pocket, especially with the left side of her jacket more to her middle than the right.  Okay, that's the end of required nitpicks -- all to be taken with a grain of salt.  It's a sweet pic, and I hope she doesn't have to wait for much longer.

The color version of "Tough Angie"...
If you ask her for a date, you might catch a smile... (but be prepared to be bossed around  ;))

Every time I see these pics I wonder:  Where are they from? What cartoon? But I think is irrelevant at this point, heh.  ;D They are just amazing, from the sketch you do all the time is really hard, I bet, to come out with something like this. I mean the colors, they look so natural, Oh, and the jeans.  Is that an effect on photoshop or you make by hand?  I have another question: Do you use a tablet?

@Omar: "All Grown Up" is a spinoff series from "Rugrats" (but don't worry, I didn't know either - I had to look it up at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Grown_Up!).

@Tommy: Needless to say, the pics are great as always. I love the structures in her hair and in the clothes; they make the look of the actual show kinda boring (at least from what I can tell looking at the Wikipedia pic).  ;)

Thanks for the comments, guys.
@Omar: all is hand-made. I send the sketches to China, where it's inked and colored by underpayed labourers in a smelly sweatshop...  ;)
Nah, Photoshop has many buttons and gadgets that I never used and probably never will use, but I don't think a "jeans" button is one of them... It's just, I have this mild obsession with cute girls in jeans, that's why I try to make the jeans look as good as possible.
@Andreas: you're right about the "official" artwork. AGU is a fun show, but technically it's one of Nick's lousier animated series. The original Rugrats weren't very exciting, art-wise, and the sequel hasn't improved much. Just compare the AGU style to the slick artwork of FOP or MLAATR...

Angelica looks terrific as an action hero.  She looks great with the shading, the hair a little mussed from chasing bad guys, and a forceful expression.  On top of all that, the details of her pose and the way her jacket shifts and bunches up are excellent (on top of the clothes being well designed and detailed to begin with).  And her pistol is extremely well detailed, though I don't know much about specific firearms.  Did you use references for a particular handgun model?

Her dialogue is fine, but the typeface is somewhat weak for her message.  If you want various , check out Blambot, which is geared to comics, or FontDirectory, which has quite a bit to choose from with no specific application in mind.  However, the picture itself tells the story so well that the dialogue isn't even necessary.

For the Tommy and Kimi picture, I'm reluctant to comment and will invoke my disclaimers of protanomaly and an old LCD panel.  The shading and highlighting of the characters seems excellent, and I can definitely tell there's a light source to our left between that and their shadows.  Overall, their forms are colored fine, though their colors are a bit subdued, not "contrasty" enough.  Even the graffiti doesn't stand out against the wall.

Their hair sticks out quite a bit because it isn't blended to the same level as everything else.  I know that the color and highlights typically follow their own patterns across different sections of the hair itself, but the coloring patterns seem to interfere with the hair at some points: it's like there's an "interference pattern" between the two, most noticeable in the diagonal lines in Kimi's right ponytail.

Of course, see what others and the fellow artists have to say, as I have very little coloring skill (just a few Feder comics, none of which came out so hot).  It may also be that I'm too used to seeing fan art with bright-yellow skinned characters against lots of blue and pinkish backgrounds.  :doh:

The bricks look great with the real variation in the mortar, so I hate to ask, but... Is it a stock picture?  The near-horizontal line across Kimi's skirt seems a bit too heavy; I'm guessing it was in the original drawing, so perhaps it could have been toned down and the fold accentuated with shading.  (It wouldn't be replaced completely, IMO, unless the shading was done much less subtly.)

As for the drawing itself, Kimi's boot lining looks to thick, as if her legs are wrapped in thick foam, and the lacing sticks out compared to the rest of the refined lines.  I like the book title, though I wonder why Tommy's backpack has ammunition tubes.  Is he going to the firing range with Angelica later? ;)

And that obsession for cute girls in jeans has just striked again, heh?  ;)  Nicely done once again, Tommy.
