As a wise man once said, there are but two constants: Star Wars and gender reveal parties. Wait, what?

Nice Guy Tarkin helps celebrate the joyful occasion. Happy early Star Wars Day everybody! Con-crit welcome as always.

(True story: someone made nearly the exact same joke in the comments for the Youtube clip I watched for reference pics.)

You did a really good job, Chris! The faces look very convincing, and I think you used the reference pics well. Without comparing them to the actual movie, they're quite faithful to how I remember them. I think Leia's eyes in the second panel may be a wee bit misaligned, but I think the way her face is a little tilted might be throwing me off. It might just be a wrong impression. I really like the way you've drawn the faces either way. Tarkin looks really good in the first panel.

... also, it took me way too long to get the joke, but it really works. Great execution, Chris!

That is so flattering, thank you. I'm sure you're right about Leia's eyes; I have a lot of trouble with that.

Glad you liked it!

So, I recently learned that a certain franchise's official Youtube channel has been uploading episodes of both of its animated series as of late, and I have been watching them and drinking in the "Yes, it really was this good" nostalgia.

Thus, a doodle was born.

The evil clown-bed is just perfect for this, and the drawing is really good. Cool and ambitious angle, and Bart has a perfect expression.

It's highly unlikely that I'll be able to make it this Sunday. I might get something done during the week instead.

When the Dark Eldar High Command gets a transmission that ends suddenly, in screaming.

It's a really cool pic, Chris! I think most of the concrit was made in the chat already, but for me, other than a few minute details, it looks very convincing and freaky (in the good sense). Yeah, I like it!


So, a while back, I toyed around with the idea of having the Mane Six cosplaying as characters from El Chavo, a comedy series I've adored since I was a kid. So, I figured that, before trying to do a big drawing with all of them in it, I'd try to figure out their individual designs and poses first. So, here's Fluttershy as El Chavo, which I did on Saturday, and Pinkie Pie as Kiko (I tried to make her body bigger, and also filled in her missing tail). Hopefully, in the future, I'll get the others done too.

My ears are burning! And I didn't even light a Q-tip this time. :D

Not familiar with the originals, but Flutterchavo is incredibly cute, with an on-model face and a convincing pose. The pattern on her hat is a bit too flat, but that's a minor nitpick, and really the only problem I have. Pinkiko looks legit in terms of body (bearing in mind I don't know ponies that well), with very on-model mane and tail. Her head's a bit big, but her expression is great. You're getting good at drawing in the show's style.
