Those Damn Vultures by CountANDRA Those Damn Vultures by CountANDRA
LINK TO DECEMBERSVILLE --> [link]

BEHOLD! MY INKS ARE BAAAACK! :la: .... KIND OF! ... I love my markers.

I loathe my scanner like I loathe giant fuzzy moths.
A portrait-ish baby of the eccentric political bastards: The Von Pyre Bros. :heart:

My focus on faces and design has been expanding slightly, but a drastic change that has been applied lately has been to Chimabell. xD
I tried to make him look more his age YET maintain those big eyes and that tremendous crocodile smile to bring out a childish and zany funkiness in him because, if you read the story, Chima is REALLY kid-like.

I notice that Chima's expression does not come from his eyes but his mouth. When his mouth is drawn big and fun, he looks spastic and derp. But when it is drawn small, it totally changes his face and he looks like a different person when looking serious.

This is the preview picture for Ch. 6, which I am re-writing as we speak.

... I wanna draw Merry again. These guys are the MOST FUN to draw and the EASIEST, but Merry is my favorite. XD


Tried to give this pic a blend of my very old and recent style.

For serious, though, the Von Pyres were the first characters that I really fell in love with, and this piece of art truly immortalizes their character...I don't even know what that means. Seriously though this is mind blowing. My mind is being blown as we speak! Blown to bits! Blown to infinity and beyond! Blown to, uh, Amazingland! Because that is where this drawing lives! You probably live there too! Along with Abraham Lincoln and the Sneezing Panda! Yeah! It's so awesome!
New Chima is the best Chima. I love what you've done to his face.

This is just so amazing.
You've come a long way, you really have.
The intensity of the expressions alone is enough to make this drawing fantastic.
While it's slightly more dark than the usual goofy trio is, that makes it all the more striking.
Bravi, bravi, bravissimi.

Every single time I see something new from you in my inbox I get one of these wobbly flashbacks to a few months ago... And think; "Yeah. She's going places :heart:"

But I'm serious, I never cease to get stunned by your latest work since I compare your current style to your old. I mean all of these colour intakes too!! ;;
I love this portrait of the three vicious leaders, the detail I keep staring at though is that light around Bella's umbrella! Amazing, man! *0*
The expressions are probably the most powerful thing here though. They spell out anger and suspicion, and threat. It's very intense and it just takes my breath away :heart:


Yes. Yes good. MORE MERRY :iconheplz:

I LOVE IT!

more than many other drawings from you... it's just particularly well done, you can feel the chaos of your graphic style but with minimal ambiguity in the shape (your eye doesn't get lost trying to figure out what it's currently watching).

And the emotions are as perfect as ever... rapacity at it's best! =D

Look at that gorgeous green lighting~!! The swooshing hair and capes!!!

I'm sorry but I could not help but think when seeing this was "The Von Pyre Bros: They will End you... with their UMBRELLAS."

Quite silly I know.

That aside! This looks simply fantastic as always!! I always love seeing your work in my inbox! Keep up the amazing work Andi!
