ER: This is my angry face by Turtle-Arts ER: This is my angry face by Turtle-Arts
Oh Mouse, y u so angry all the time? Nobody's going to want to be friends with you if you keep looking at them like that. :I

Just some sketching from last night after I finished my homework and whatnot. I actually did these as "open mouth expression" practice. :> I think a lot of people tend to glance over being able to draw characters with their mouths open- as weird as that sounds. (I hate that stupid anime cop out where people draw their character in profile with closed lips, but still draw an open mouth where it looks like it's pasted to the side of their face. >_<) I picked Mouse for this partially because I hadn't drawn him for a little while, and also because I wanted to figure out exactly how the scar on his mouth moves and reacts to different expressions.

And then I threw in Grenich for good measure, and also because I changed his design a little recently. :> Enjoy! ^^

But i'm not...wait, nevermind. Facial expressions are extremely difficult but you seemed to have them well under control!
Great Job

Lol, oh you and your name being Mouse. XD I'm sure you're nowhere near as angry as my Mouse. ^^ And thank you!

Thank you! ^^ And yes, a lot of people tend to avoid drawing that I think. Because it's really easy to make it bad by accident. XD

ive been trying to do a couple of these exercises recently. not that i can really draw to begin with. XD and yeah, thats a stupid anime cop out. .__. but the really good ones dont do that! :D

i read the composition like this:
this is my angry face: pissed, ticked, i cant believe what you did there, grr, and I TURN INTO A FUCKING BIRD DRAGON THING.

lol.

Lol, maybe I should have placed Grenich a little differently because a few people seem to be under the impression that Mouse is the dragon and that he can shapeshift or something. XD

Well, I would think anyone who knows what Mouse was made for would know that Grenich is a different character. But if they don't know what he's from then I guess it could be confusing... I guess. :/

Something like that. But then drawing a human and a dragon together on one page must obviously mean the human turns into a dragon. :iconsuspiciousplz:

For a moment there I thought Grenich was Mouse's transformation. I haven't watched long enough to know it probably isn't. OTL

Somebody looking that fierce is pretty intimidating.

What about a tranq? :3

Considering the fact that I have two scars on my face and one massive one on my arm, most of my characters have one or two distinctive scars somewhere.

Sort of; my biggest one is more of a "Harry Potter" deal, and my second one is only noticeable by the fact that it parts my eyebrow funny. XD

Lol, the only scars I have are four on my left arm from my friend's cat that went psycho one day. It sucked when I got them though because they're really close to my wrist and they go horizontal across my arm so people thought I was a cutter. >_<

I've been thought to be a cutter simply because I always wear a long-sleeved jacket or shirt. At least yours seems slightly more reasonable of a stretch. XD

I really enjoy his character design. :) I recognize him instantly and he doesn't look at all typical, and yet he's fairly simple. Your work is very impressive and very creative, I love to stare at it.

Thank you! ^^ Yeah, I try to hit my designs somewhere between simplified and detailed just so they're easy to draw repeatedly. Except I can't ever figure out exactly how detailed I want to draw Mouse. XD

:iconcatalystofthesoul:
CatalystOfTheSoul Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
You do a good job with him either way, I think the difficulty is that you like drawing him so much you want to put more work into him, and therefore end up putting in more detail than you normally would. :) Nothing wrong with that, especially if you enjoy doing it!

:iconturtle-arts:
Turtle-Arts Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
It's true. XD I think it's because sometimes I like to draw super simple, and sometimes I like to draw with more detail, so I kind of have two ways of drawing each of my characters. ^^;
