Floating! I enjoyed this one. I actually drew mine and then thought of the theme. Ha ha.
Mine is just Yan Yu and I, in some kind of fantasy outfits for some reason. Because I thought it'd be cool! Ha ha.
Yan Yu's features her mom looking for her to do work, while Yan Yu floats around in la-la land.
Not much else to say! Yan Yu is coming over tomorrow and we're going to a friend's birthday party so that's cool!

Mike suggested to do "wallop". William's was quick, about 20-30 minutes. He says that's what he'd like to do to me because I have bad AIM habits. ;(
I don't know how long mine took, but I was watching a george carlin marathon (poor guy.. he had a heart failure) while drawing. Thus William wanting to wallop me in the head because I had ignored him for about two hours. Haha.

We wanted a break from themes and decided to post some sketches that have been going on in our heads. Tomorrow we may do something digital again. William did some more concept design for upcoming Para-Ten chapters.. the type of stuff I should be working on because I pay so much attention to just faces without context. D: zxnmbzxn!
I've noticed that I've been using bigger and bigger noses with each passing drawing, because I've realized that no matter how ugly you make it, nobody will notice because all the attention is on the eyes, lips and hair. Hah! So it's fun being able to play with nose shapes. William's been doing the same thing as well. Go experimenting! I added a lot of drawings in one post to make up for the entries I've missed. D'aw.
Some useless facts:
1. Bottom right is based on William (hair, glasses)
2. Bottom left looks like what William would draw
3. A friend, Mike, mentioned that I look like the top right. Another friend, Mando, agrees.. saying that the lips look like mine. I think they do, I'm not sure. He said people tend to draw features of themselves into their drawings. I agree because William's drawings are point and sharp JUST LIKE HIM.
4. Top left actually looks more like William, because of the chipper expression. Harhar.
On an irrelevant note, I really hate my name. Jessica. What does the name Jessica remind you of--Jessica Simpson? Porn stars? Or just about every other girl since it's such a common name? Either way, I don't like the way it sounds. For some reason nobody has ever used my chinese name; not even my family. And a couple of people have told me that they wished my name was chinese--which I do have! But is never used. So I'm going to try and enforce it. It'll be hilariously ironic because everyone will call me by it except for my azn family. So yeah, starting from today I'm no longer Jessica on this blog. I'm Yan Yu. Got it? get it? good!

Jessica was gonna post too but her connection was lost for a while and also her scanner wasn't working anyways.
So here we have a character concept sketch I did for a future Para-Ten chapter. I like how it came out, and it's different from the stuff I've been drawing the past... months. Ha ha.
I really haven't done a good male character design in a long time, and for some reason I often limit myself to clothes that fit the character, so it's good to variate. Not only that but it's a nice pencil drawing which I used to do all the time and don't do nearly enough any more. Years ago I was almost exclusively pencil, ha ha.
I think one of the reasons I more easily got away from my usual stuff is that I know that in the chapter, Paveline is gonna be there. She will satiate my need to draw a pretty girl type character so it leaves me open to all other sorts of people. It's a lot of fun to draw more "geometric" characters like this guy here and his coat. Ha ha.
Have a great day or night everyone!

Tonights theme was "moon" just because... it came to me. Ha ha. Originally I thought of doing "folk tale" but that's kind of complicated. It takes Jessica long enough to think of an idea with these simple topics, it'd probably take her eight hours! Ha ha.
We both did really similar compositions. I don't have much else to say about them though. Tomorrow I go back home from Jessica's house, boo hoo!
William and I were discussing about hill billies, banjoes, fried chicken and watermelon today--which, coincidently, was what we had for dinner the following night.. rsrsrsrs. Anyways, that led to the south being our theme. Except right when I was halfway done with mine my computer crashed again. I think I'll cry about it in my blog tonight! :
lulz neways srsly, I think this means I need to start saving more often. Or somebody will die!
William drew me as a hill billy because we were talking about how it would be funny if he played his banjo in his straw hat, and that I'd be standing next to him with broken teeth and disheveled hair. I find it hilarious... also that outfit was pretty much what I wore today.
Perhaps we'll dress up like that and sit on a porch someday. Just for giggles, you know.
No offense to any southerners that see this, really. DURR HUR!
