Lil Antoine by Kabocha24 Lil Antoine by Kabocha24
My submission for :iconantoine-aholics:'s contest. Honestly, it was refreshing to draw him. If memory serves me well I haven't drawn him for a good 10 years at the least. A mental block was starting to dam my inspiration. I think making this has unclogged the problem. I've been making line art for the past 4 days. :D
I've got one more thing in store before I go back to my KP requests. I like doing the KP requests but I just realized not too long ago, that that's been the majority of my work for the past year. Don't worry though if you have a reqeust, it will be filled, I needed a break is all.

Normally I'm not one to toot my own horn but I think this is adorable!!! But of course, since he's my favorite Freedom Fighter, I'm a tad biased :giggle:

Though the background leaves much to be discouraged. Sonic backgrounds are HARD TO DO for an inexperienced fan artist like myself!!! :shakefist:
But it did give me a change to experiment with s'more tools and did you notice....I added shadows!!!! :clap: Practice, practice and more practice.

This is really cute! I remember seeing him in the SatAM episode Blast to the Past how little he was. Good job!

That is very adorable. :D I always see people draw young Sonic & Sally, and such but very rarelly li'l Antoine. Great job. I kinda like the blurry look the background has.

I was kinda worried about the background. It's not really my style to blur stuff like that. It's good that people are not getting headaches when they look at it. :giggle:

That looks great! ^__^ You know Antoine really is an underestimated character, everyone's all like "He's a weak coward and deserves to die!" but I've seen him have a number of good moments o.o

Oooh, that'll be interesting, I hope it shows him doing something brave or saving someone's life, I plan to do something a bit like that where he saves my character from a burning/collapsing factory..don't worry, he doesn't fall in love with her or anything, I'll likely put Rotor(another underrated character) in that too ^^

It wil definitely show the different sides to ol' Ant. :giggle:
Sonic's something I never made an OC for. Don't know why, guess it just never occured to me to make one because. Then again, I never could decide whether to make her a Mobian or an Outlander like Robotnik or Snively and do like the double agent thing.
I'd like to see that pic! :nod: And I agree about Rotor. They couldn't have made it as far as they did without his inventions.

Well ya did a nice job and you added shading =O. Lol. Sonic backgrounds are hard? I wouldn't know, but that sounds like a challenge!

They're a tad difficult for someone without the patience (i.e. me). It looks like they're done in acrylics but I've zoomed in on screenshots and some shading suggests a paint program. You are correct...and I accept.

I'm always working with crappy 12-8 hours but on the weekends I may just check them out and possibly play with them. Here I was done with drawing and now I'm drawn back in...haha get it...drawn? haha. no.

Let us both be challenged!

Lol well now I'm a suit or whatever. Everyone is all professional suit and tie and then I'm there in an odd suit and tie drawing cartoons. These work schedules are so miserable, eh?

lol You're the oddball of the place huh? Sounds all too familiar. You should wear funny ties to work.

Miserable indeed! The only time you have in your day is to get up, get ready for work, go to work, work, come home, eat (maybe), go to bed to get up and do it all over again tomorrow. :faint:

KuroHaneTenshiN Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Lol indeed!
Well, I like being odd...and most of the current employees are ones from my last job cuz our last place closed.

I've been doing time management and pretty much it means i come home at 11:20 then play games till 4. Sleep till 10. Either go out or game more till 1:30 and then get ready and leave for work at 2:30. It's not the best so I figure on like 2 of the days I'll just sleep when I get home then get up like 6am and have from like 6-1 to be out and about. I hate having like Sundays and Tuesdays off tho...I'm not sure what my days off are...

I figure tho in the end I'm gonna buy my friends some presents for Christmas and mebbe I'll do something here on dA for some kinda prize for someone.

Not knowing your days off blows. At least you're getting your bills paid. :nod:
