A Humble Offering by Elera A Humble Offering by Elera
The kind of thing I draw when I can't draw.

I've been trying all this week though. Oh lord, how I have tried.

I call this little style of mine 'drawing in short hand.' It's where you draw really fast and fluid in order to discover what it is about a character that you feel is so a part of them that you have to include it, otherwise it wouldn't be them.

Or, it might just be laziness.

You definitely have that "feel" of the characters! I adore all of your Mickey & Minnie art, but this piece has to be one of the best.

The inking lines have such a nice flow, and every single one seems to be in its place. But to me, it's the way you did the coloring
that makes the picture stand out. Soft, crayonish feel provides the "humble" atmosphere...

Which is pushed even further with cute and modest expressions of the characters. I mean, I'm really amazed at how you handle
action (and exaggeration) without breaking the mood of the piece.

It's a talent combined with years of hard work, I believe:)

Awwww!

I really like it! I like it's simplicity, with the economy of lines going on, and the sort of crayony (there's a word, I just don't know it) colouring!

^_^ that's really awesome. Your design is classic and sweet. What Barney has done to the image of Minnie Mouse, and others, is horrible. Keep up the awesome-ness.

BTW if anyone doesn't know what I'm talking about...

I really like this 'drawing in short hand' style of yours. It looks so delightfully simplistic and has so much movement in the lines. It's awesome!

OK, see, this is super-adorable. And I love it. A lot. The thick, graceful lines are especially nice, evoking the old-school style of Disney 'toons but infusing it with a unique energy all your own. Likewise the posing and expressions are great, handled with your usual loving attention to detail and character. Most of all, though, I love the color scheme; not just the chalk-like textures, but the way you so wonderfully contrast the stark black background with the bright rainbow center which in turn perfectly highlights the softer blacks of our two Mouse friends. Lovely, lovely work. ^_^

This is delightful and makes me smile every time I look at it, and I find myself returning to look at it a lot. I love the way you colored it, almost a crayon-like texture, which really fits with the 'classic' version you chose to do the mice in. It's all super cute, and shows how well you know them.
