The show has never been very clear on how long they were together during those times after the war. It could have been years, it could have been months, it could be even longer than that maybe even several decades. There is nearly 1000 years of story line missing form that so there's a lot of room for interpretation. I prefer to think that they spent several years together before Simon finally totally lost his mind.

Fair enough. Whether it fits in with the story or not, these are good sketches. Good job.

Wow Mutt, you've improved a lot since the last time I visited, which was probably a month or two.

The Godzilla drawing is amazing though, and I like how you draw the PPGs.
Show me the color of your credits.

Some more strange stuff I sketched up as practice. These are all OC with the exception of Diamond Tiara: Ruler of Hell over there and that random pony.
Up next I'll upload a complete picture.

Good eye there Lingo, but that's not Blossom. Although I will admit the hair style is kind of similar to how I do Blossom's, but that's the first time I've drawn that character. She'll look different over time if I continue to draw her.

Thought as much, but the crack was just too good to pass up with the whole GT situation.

Keep up the good work Mutt!

I have a hard time telling if that's sarcasm or not with you Sigment.
Cute, creepy or whatever, I don't mind how anyone views it.
None the less, thanks for the comment.

It was sarcasm, actually. My favorite kind is the kind that's hard to tell.

And you're welcome.

Those eyes are really creepy. Hmm, I'm curious, will they be making an appearance in one/more of your comics?

Some more weird stuff I've been sketching. One of these was turned into an actual drawing because I wanted to do a color test of something.

Not a Care in the World
--
Just trying out a bit of a different look and style of drawing, mainly with the way I draw faces and eyes and the shape of the head. Going for something a bit more cartoony and strange looking and I wanted to see what it looked like when it was colored.
This is the same girl form my last finished drawing, only she didn't have a tail in that one. Don't know if she'll keep it or not, just something I wanted to try out as well.
This is the first time in a while I've done something that involved straight up death and blood in it.

Ah, Mad-Mutt... You're probably the most surreal artist I've ever met. And before you ask: Yes, that's a compliment.

@Ari-6:
Yes Ari that is her tail. And no that's not her boyfriend... at least I don't think it was. Either way he's pretty dead.

@Sigment:
Thanks man.

Mad-Mutt, there's a few things I want to say, but I think it's better to show you some of them. Do you mind if I paint a bit over one of your Godzilla art?

This is your original image

Image

And this is my paint-over (I accidentally painted a bit red on Godzilla's head, ignore that part)

Image

First of all, you shouldn't use pure black. Something is only black when it absorbs all light (or if there's no light, in which case everything will be black). In reality, most of things we call "black" has a certain level of gloss, which makes then reflect light. Therefore, they will take the color of the light. If it's white light, they would appear dark grey to light grey, but not pure black. If it's light reflected from other objects, they will have some of that color as well. For example, placing fire near a black object will give it some yellow-orange color. Pure black is for things that are very glossy, like metal.

Image

Same goes for pure white. There's almost nothing that looks pure white, except for metal or wet objects.

Now, about the values (how light/dark something is). The sky and the water surface in your picture is too bright for a night scene, so I lowered their values a bit, plus it gives a darker atmosphere. I noticed that Godzilla is holding a flaming jet in his hand, but the value is so dark it's hard to see anything other than his claws. Furthermore, fire is a light source, so things around it should be brighter. I brightened up the area around his hand, so that it would have enough contrast to be more visible against the dark background, and give the impression that it's a light source. I did the same for the fire in the city and the full moon, since they are usually very bright. About the vapor/fire thing in his mouth (not sure which), I add some lines of lighter value, so it will act as either value variation for the vapor or glow for fire. Also note that blood mix well with water, so it won't have a sharp edge.

Next is color. From what I've seen, you use a lot of colors with very high saturation. For colors like red and yellow, it doesn't look very natural. For example, the city sky in the Godzilla picture, you used a very strong red. In reality, it looks more like dark brown with some red tints.

Image

Same goes for hair: blonde is more light brown than yellow, red hair is more brown red than just red.

Lastly, the fog/smoke thing that you often do. Don't just add dark/light grey brush strokes over them, they make the picture looks messy. Instead, use similar colors with some changes in hue/saturation/value...

Image

...and give them more shape variation and make them look more like a moving mass.

Image

I hope this can help.
