Say chees----MACCARONI by MaRaMa-Artz Say chees----MACCARONI by MaRaMa-Artz
I wanted to add text but felt I'll spoil it if I did so instead just listen to a voice asking "Say cheese!" and Willy says "MACCARONI!" instead! *winks at Idol*

EDIT: Version 2 is here! [link]

This was inspired by many things. Here are some of the few.
This manga: [link]

The doujinshi ~idolhands has been posting on Livejournal~

~loonylucifer's art as I've always loved her manga style. Specially her anatomy.

And how I actually started drawing this while talking to my bf on the phone last night as hearing his voice again in 3 months was the best muse I've ever had.

I can find some little mistakes here and there and Willy's face was a pain when I was sketching it at first. But when I look at Charlie's PERFECT face I don't care about anything else. I was actually trying to draw Willy at first but kept erasing what I drew and then just started doodling randomly and erasing until I thought that I always managed to be pleased by the way i drew Charlie on the very first try so I drew his face. And I loved it and so I kept adding. When I was done with him just standing there I wanted to add Willy and started struggling again with how and why he was gonna be there. He came out in pieces. First the head next to Charlie's. Then the arm around him but what were they looking at? And I remembered of some of the photos I've taken at the academy from the side and the person isn't even aware I'm taking it. Or when people are getting their pics taken from several cameras at once and there's one that's not gonna get them looking at it so I went that way. They're posing for a camera somewhere to the right. :P

And Charlie's like between a "Wtf?" face and about to burst out laughing. XD
The blush...why the blush...I was kinda practicing it. XP
But Willy's come from excitement/joyfulness and Charlie's just...well...Charlie. And maybe happiness too. I noticed I made Willy holding him a bit too tight. Well, I think when he's too excited he'd do a lot of things without noticing like playing a bit too rough and saying things out of place.
Because i get like that...like how I always forget to NOT GLOMP a certain someone too hard because I weight about 200 pounds and about 5'7'' tall! Ouch. I also tend to say retarded things I regret later. ^^;

You take it however you like. I ain't stopping you!
Anyway...
Enjoy~

I'm not sure where I got this from but it was a phase of drawing in manga style so lots of manga reading and even some "How to draw manga" books. So far, I'm not even sure I have my own set style yet because I just keep changing depending on mood and what I'm drawing. I've always sort of mixed american and japanese styles. Simpler lines with realism in mind.

So, yes, you can do as you wish, but here's some artistic advice:
You should never do things in one set "style", you have to always make your own. Sure you can use this as reference but try not to copy exactly how it is, that's no way to learn art. So give it a try and then add your own stuff to it, make it YOUR style. That's the way to keep original. If you copy another's style then you'd just be repeating a pattern and often repeat the other's mistakes to. :]

Been playing God of War(borrowed), have the second but haven't started it yet. I started drawing Kratos but couldn't finish the sketch. I'll try again when I play the second game. Thanks for the advice!

Beat the first is Hard mode. Didn't last long in God mode thought. XD;;
Maybe playing the second in normal would be like hard mode?

Oh WOW! That's awesome. Charlie's just the star of the pic isn't he? Can't wait to see the end result! :aww: You're also welcome to show me WIPs as I like saving them to see the process and maybe learn some new tips in how to color on my own~

Aren't you in luck then, missy? I love showing WIPs to the people I talk to when I'm working on the piece, so here are the ones I have so far:

:DDD If you're wondering why I have Wonka so PARTICULARLY flushed is that I can just see him getting really excited over taking a picture. Like, since he wasn't used to it, and I mean, it's WILLY, you know what I mean?

This is darling! You bring out Charlie's just plain adorability and Willy's wackiness very well.

I've noticed I differ from most artist in making Charlie innocent but not ignorant. And Willy? Well. I call him Willy because I just see a kid that wasn't allowed to grow.
Damn, I just realized Wonka's practically circling his arm on Charlie's waist. I either made the kid too freaking thin or his arm too long. Probably both. :XD:

Nah. It looks allright to me. and you're right. WIlly is a kid who wasn't really allowed to grow up. Or, rather, refused to grow up.

:iconmarama-artz:
MaRaMa-Artz Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2007  Professional General Artist
Or maybe. Forced to grow too quickly and so he never let out the kid in him until he had the factory to himself? :D

That sounds more like someone I know and love. Only the little kid is still being tied down. :/
