Smiley, Ben, and Tobi: the wonderful polyamorous demons that I share with
, featuring the newest re-design of Tobi <3
I almost didn't want to post this is because Ben's hair is traced (from this image images.clipartpanda.com/boy-ha…
I had to do a lot of tweaking and adjusting from the original pencil drawing I'd made and, by the time I was done, the hair I had originally drawn just didn't look right anymore. I tried to redraw it but after a few hours (it was just one of those days) it just wasn't turning out. I wanted to move on with the drawing, so I broke down and traced the hair after resigning myself to deciding I wasn't going to post this anywhere public.
BUT I spent so damn long on this drawing (I worked on it for 20 hours STRAIGHT and then about another 6 hours today, and that's not even counting the work I did on it months ago when I originally started the drawing) and it's probably one of the best things I ever drawn. I'm so proud of myself for making this and the thought of this sitting on my computer and collecting dust genuinely makes me sad.
I would also like to point out that Starlight-Of-Arraya posted something very similar to this back in March. We both made a version of this drawing back when she posted it, but I drew mine in my sketchbook and wanted to digitize it (and make it better. The original I drew is pretty shit comparatively) and then basically forgot about it before even finishing the line-work. So here's my version 3 months late.
