Chasing Mr. Summerby by oxboxer Chasing Mr. Summerby by oxboxer
Mr. Summerby, the cheerful and oblivious chick magnet.

Final project, bitches! Awww yeah! Now I'll go work on the Spring kitty and see if I can get her in before the deadline, too. Yay! :D

Haha, don't turn into a furry on me, I don't think I could handle that brand of crazy. ;P

At least you had a set way of pronouncing gouache, even it was wrong... I had absolutely no idea, so every time I'd say it, it sounded like I was yodeling going over the vowels. >:[

Hell i still pronounce it that way.. I like it more when i do.. Oh i think im turning into a furry.. You just make cats so attractive.. I almost threw up just thinking about it..

I'll have to draw hotter humans to swing you back to the side of light, lol. Gotta get out af the animal thing before I turn into a neon-raver-anthro-artbitch! Promise to punch me if I start copywriting certain ears and glowing shit.

Oh it will surely be my pleasure to do so.. If you really want to swing me back just Do more of brass rat.. Or at least the guy from there. i love him times ten.. Speaking of ten. I read this book.. War of the Oaks. The band in it was totally called brassRat.

Ohhh, A BrassRat band? I'll have to check this book out. :D

I haven't drawn that coffee guy for so long, haha. Poor guy. Maybe I'll do a minicomic with him in it after my neck soreness is sorted out. :B

War of the Oaks is a fantasy book.. I thought it was really good.. But too bad i got my books mixed up.. the book with brass rat is called pay the piper and it is horrible. don't read it. war of the oaks was good though..
I hope you get unneckpained soon.. I feel a strange fondness towards my neighbors neo-raver dog.

No! Don't go into the neon glowsticky light! *relaxes as fast as she can*

And is "Pay the Piper" Eragon-horrible? Because if it is, I'll avoid it like the plague, I promise. :0

Love his expression! :D Makes me all happy~

What's gouche like to work with? I've used acrylics, oils and watercolours, but never gouche.

It's a little like... A mix of watercolors and acrylics? It dries fast like acrylics, but can be reactivated (to a limited extent) like wc's, the set-up is blissfully simple (just add water)... But it's opaque, so you can cover your tracks for as long as you're willing to let the paint build up. And once it's dry you can paint on top of it with watercolor if you don't use too much water.

That's all I can think of right now... I think it also works best if you use a very limited palette, but maybe that's the art school geek in me talking. I'd recommend just getting white and black to start with if you really want to try them, so you can test paint consistencies and such.

Sounds interesting... Maybe when I run out of books and paper to buy (read: never) I'll invest in the smallest amounts of black and white I can find. :D

Gouache is a blast after you get over that initial sticker-shock. :0

Summerby's starting to remind me of a giraffe, with that neck! Reminds me of that kid in Willy Wonka who got shrunk and had to be stretched. 0_0

Ha, the name sounds very..original and English :D?
I like his expression as he pulls the kite, it's both silly and all around HAPPY.

When I look at your artwork I think of the word "fluid" to describe it. Hope that sounds positive to you.
