It took quite a bit of work to finish, both with the actual drawing and the coloring that had to be done after. But I made sure to put in all the hours that I could into it so that I could get it finished by today. It was a fun drawing, I remember having a bit of a hard time deciding who to add to the drawing. I wanted to add the main characters for one, but that would be too little. So for that reason I started adding some extra characters so that it wasn’t too lonely but they were characters that I actually liked. Not like that tree trunks.
I wanted to add a bit of life to the party and have everyone doing their own thing. I have Finn and Flame Princess having a tender moment together. Jake being a pig eating all the bread but still being nice enough to share some with Lady. Cinnamon Bun being a dufus and falling while dancing (for some reason I really like this character) I have two characters kind of hidden and lurking in the shadows because they weren’t invited. The most obvious being Lumpy Space Princess. On top of the tree I have Peppermint Butler giving his creepy look as if he has some diabolical plan in motion. In the ground I have BMO dancing and having some fun. The scene I had the most fun doing was with the trio Marceline, Ice King and Princess Bubblegum. I had Ice King being the usual goofy weirdo he usually is by trying to dance with Princess Bubblegum, which if course annoyed and creeped her out (oh yeah I also placed Gunter by Ice King’s side). Meanwhile I had Marceline providing the music for the party while looking warmly at Ice King having fun (Marceline is my favorite character by the way, Ice King being somewhere in the top 3).
This was all colored with color pencils except the actual gang themselves. I colored them with Copics (since they are so small the Copics didn’t have a hard time coloring them despite many of them needing a refill). In some areas I went over with my pens to make some outlines. Bristol and PrismaColor go very well together. Now I just need to buy a blender so that I can make cleaner transitions between colors and areas that go from a color to completely white (meaning just the paper). What do you guys think?
