If I get in the mood to do another one, who do you guys wanna see get that Smash Bros palette treatment (my original characters only naturally)?

It felt like a cop-out to draw something partially mine Alice-wise/sort of a gift for me Cole-wise so ProfessorZolo gets a two-fer like Mollfie did. I’ve drawn Natalie before but she’s a cutie and I already had her colours to hand so what the heck. This time it’s a redraw of this picture.

This is for ProfessorZolo! Ages back he created what could only be described as a fancharacter for Phantasm Dyad, believe it or not, this ghost (who isn’t entirely aware that he is a ghost). He came up with a whole story for him as well as additional characters, to the point that at last word, he’d been considering breaking ties with PD and making it his own thing entirely - regardless of what he’s currently going with he has my blessing, naturally, because they’re all really cool character designs. The colour scheme here is entirely improvised as Zolo has never drawn him coloured and I didn’t want to spoil the surprise by asking.
Anyway, this is a redraw of his original picture of Cole. Alice was originally only in the scene for height comparison (she never meets Cole in his story), but I rolled with it and decided to draw it as if it was a panel from the actual comic (though this is somewhat getting ahead of myself as I drew it in the style of the current episode I’m working on rather than anything that presently exists lol), done deliberately in my fairly conservative style for the comic effort-wise, and detail of character-wise.
His fantastic redraw of Phantasm Dyad Cover Page 1, which he’s already done for me in return, is here.
EDIT: Can you believe I misinterpreted a beanie hat and a goatee as just being sketchy lines for clarifying the shape of his head? Thanks to scantylicious for correcting my terrible sketch-reading abilities.
I’d been meaning to do something like this as a fun ole’ mini-activity for ages then sirphilliam did it for one of his characters and I was like “screw it let’s do it now”.
As if she was appearing in a Super Smash Bros (or any fighting) game, here we have eight palettes (including a bonus remodelled costume for two of em) for Alice. The top four are based off existing variants of Alice and the bottom four based off other characters. Can you guess em all? I should hope so they’re pretty easy. The only one that may elude is number 2 due to being a mish-mash: was based on the starting point of portraying her with natural hair colour, but wanting to do something extra at the same time, so the colour scheme for her clothes is loosely based off this outfit that ended up being fairly popular in gift art people made for me one year.
And for trivia’s sake, were these “from” 64, Melee or Brawl, I guess I’d use number 1 for red team colours, number 7 for green team colours, and number 8 for blue team colours.
September is the month where autumn fashion is allowed to be on the skimpy side for aesthetics over practicality because it isn’t too cold yet. This outfit was inspired by several things in my fashion ref folders but I came up with this overall ensemble and shoes myself so I’m not sure if it looks cool or dumb.
Overall pic was somewhat inspired by this song (in sound alone, I haven’t listened paying attention to the lyrics yet lol).
When they all went out to buy fancy new dresses together those bitches never did mention what the occasion was that they were getting them for.
Don’t worry Daisy I’m kind of waiting for my Smash invitation too… stupid demo exclusivity.
(I actually kind of got bored of this midway through so it’s a bit rushed… ah well. I’ve actually been avoiding Smash spoilers but I did see the palette swaps for the starter characters before I put in my anti-spoiler defensive measures on the sites I go to lol. Also worth mentioning that I don’t actually think Daisy is that worthy for Smash Bros, and I’d certainly rather not have her at all than have her as a clone for Peach).

For scantylicious I decided to redraw this doodle she did like a year ago. This character design for Death is a little outdated now but decided to roll with it. I can tolerate that damn mechanical arm she used to have when it’s been pre-posed for me to just copy, lol. I intentionally drew her a little closer to the Sonic “house style” in terms of proportions since that’s how I’d normally draw Sonic-esque characters, and I thought it’d make it a more interesting redraw by doing so.
EDIT: Forgot her freckles.
I meant to draw Hazel ever since reading Seconds but for some reason the mood was never right. But y’know sometimes you can’t wait for the mood to be right, so I grabbed the book, flicked through for a reference and saw this scene again and well, there was the mood.
I really really adored Seconds by the way. It’s so different from Scott Pilgrim that it’s hard to compare, but it’s most definitely Bryan Lee O Malley’s work and it’s most definitely fantastic. First comic to ever give me genuine, physical chills too at one point.

…Gasp, a second one for mollfieart? This is a redraw of this piece. While I didn’t want to ruin the surprise of what I was drawing her, I mentioned I was torn between a fairly new piece (this one) and a very old one. Upon saying this she said how she hated most of her old pieces now, but I really really realllly wanted to redraw that Penny picture. Soooo she gets two. I guess being married to me has to have SOME perks.
As a mini challenge for myself, I went straight into drawing this one after finishing Penny, no breaks other than to decide on a playlist… I also managed to do this one, from start to finish, in just under an hour. Redrawing stuff really is quite relaxing and less stress inducing due to the pose being done for you lol. I’ve been enjoying this meme.

For the missus, mollfieart, I decided to redraw quite an old piece of hers, but has remained one of my faves of hers even years on for honestly pretty guessable reasons.
Man you’re much nicer than the last guy I went to
Please check them out and follow them, they’re great!
Now time to try and actually create my own OC’s!
Oh man my style is so cartooney it’s always crazy awesome to see my characters in a slightly more realistic way like this. I adore the bonus detail on her CV with a signature too haha! Can’t wait to see what you come up with for your original work!
