Re: My best friend


People thought George was crazy. They saw him, day after day, walking through the park alone, guffawing and cutting up with.....no one. He talked about everything under the sun, from fishies, to beheaded people, to robots! And yet, no one knew just quite who he was talking to....

...but George knew his friend was there. Was he invisible? Yes. Could only George see his best friend? He supposed so, since most other people looked confused when they spotted George and his friend out together. But George didn't care. He had his friend, and that was all that mattered to him.

Now you have to ask yourself, is George mad for having an invisible friend, or are you mad for being able to see his shadow as well?

Thanks. Yeah, I sorta had like a transparent character there originally, but I took him out because I thought it'd be more fun to imagine what he'd look like.

It loves that you love it! Thanks!

Thanks. I've been trying to define my "style" for years, and I think doing the derbies is what helped me discover it.

jewelwing wrote:This is so good. I love the texture here.

Thanks. I've been trying to figure different, potentially printable ways to color things in. There are so many options, but I think I like the texture the scribbles make as well.

Thanks, man! I had a ton of fun doing the background scribbles.

I never before this moment thought "madness" could be depicted in such an adorable manner. But here it is. Super cute!

Yeah, I've tried experimenting with other shirt colors of the year[s], but nothing beats a white shirt. For me. Thanks.

I actually repeated this to mom and we both laughed for a good while, so good job! And yes. Psycho path it is. :P

Thanks. I didn't add the blue til the last minute, and I'm glad I did.

This is one of my favorites of yours, bellarific. Lovable character and great colors as well.

Re: My best friend


I love this! My favorite part is easily the shadow where the invisible friend is. Very clever.

But it's on white. I would be all over it if it were on a different color. Nice work, though.

Re: My best friend


I've started to really look forward to your entries. They are the perfect balance of well drawn cute with a hint of craziness to it. Hard to explain. Awesome work.
