evspixarfan2012: I don't get exactly what you mean by that. Manga is not really my forte, and my drawing style is more a combo of Kim Possible and Fairly OddParents. I once did attempt this big anime-style eyes, but I like to stick to Western cartooning styles. Now, if you're referring to some anime fanarts I've made, or the fact that I like drawing colorful clothes and hair, I do kind of draw some inspiration from manga styles there, especially hairstyling and school uniform designs.

OWP: Thanks a lot! I'm really glad you like them. There actually is quite a story on why I made then humanoid with monster features. Originally, when I began humanizing the Monsters world, I was originally going to do the reverse; humans scaring monster children, but I ran into a problem with putting a monster!Boo in a human suit (the original is more believable). I also did think of humans from another world scaring human children, but then I thought that could be taking really, really wrong (the last thing we want is a human child screaming "There's a strange man in my room!" and getting Sulley arrested on false child endangerment charges on Earth). So I came up with the "humanoids who can shapeshift into monsters" solution (which is actually based on a trend in manga known as kemonomimi). Again, I'm really glad you've enjoyed them. ROR was definitely one of the hardest for me to design, actually (namely Javier and Chet), and surprisingly, OK was pretty easy. =D The JOX were pretty fun to draw, especially with all their tough guy poses and different features.

One question though, I hope you don't mind me asking, but, why haven't you got a dA already? It's free unless you get the premium membership.

Exactly what I'm referring to. I mean, doesn't your avatar look a bit anime-like?

To answer your question about DeviantArt, I might think about that. And if were to draw some fan art, I might consider drawing up some of my life concepts as well as my dream concepts, too.

Anyways, in looking through your art again yesterday, I am really cracking up at the "Seed Bank" one! Normally I have liked Pixar characters the way they were, but your work seems a lot better than what I've seen on Google images. I mean, the humanized versions I have seen on Google Images seem a bit ugly to me, and yours is a better style. I would never forget my years of watching Fairly OddParents (which I'm pretty sure had the same style as Danny Phantom and TUFF Puppy).

Still waiting to check out some Studio Ghibli, though.

I also like the "Exploding Telephone Booth" one. And the 6-part comic with some Monsters University type of cameos. But still, I am really cracking up at the "Seed Bank" one.

I don't really know why I haven't got myself a dA yet... I think it's mostly because I'm trying to decide what of my artwork is good enough to be posted and what needs to be edited further. It's silly, really. Also, just the snippets of artwork I've seen there look a thousand times better than what I do, so I guess it's a little scary for me to venture into that, especially considering I've been using the much-smaller, safer Disney Create for the last four years. I've been procrastinating getting an account since 2012, and I'm most certainly going to get one one of these days!
And yeah, I can definitely see how that works better for the semi-humanization; the semi-humanized MI/MU characters I've drawn were inspired by that Monster High doll brand. While I don't think I'm that into the dolls themselves, I've always liked the style and concept! I've posted all my recent forays into that area on my art thread. But anyway, back to your stuff...

evspixarfan2012: Thanks! Yes, my avatar is a famous anime character named Yuki Nagato.

I'm glad you like my Pixar stuff. The "Seed Bank" comic was one of my faves to draw. It's based on this little in-joke I came up with that every time the Captain learns something new about the starliner, he asks "We have a _____?!!" and turns completely mortified at not having known it earlier.

And yes, The Fairly OddParents!, T.U.F.F. Puppy, and Danny Phantom are all created by the same person: Butch Hartman. I personally love Hartman's style of animation and humor combined.

Also, I'm glad you like the "Exploding Telephone Booth" and "Reject Force Seven vs. The Aliens". The former was based off of Doctor Who and makes reference to Vincent Van Gogh appearing in some episodes, and the latter was a school assignment. I indeed put some MU cameos:

Spoiler: show
- The fact that the humanoid Johnny is captaining a ship called Serenity makes reference to Nathan Filion starring in Firefly, where he piloted a ship of the same name.

- The Motivational Poster

- Randall turning cute with glasses

- The heart background


OWP: Just saw some of your stuff! The whole concept of basing your MU humanization on MH (completely unrelated) character design is interesting (especially Mrs. Squibbles). And it's pretty cool with me; I'll just wait for your watch one day on dA! :D You don't need to be professional to get into dA really; I've seen people put photos of their paper drawings and they still get liked, so you're not alone. It will take time to get watchers and favorites, but it's alright.

^Thanks for that bit of encouragement, JSWeC. I'm definitely thinking more seriously about it lately and I'm looking forward to joining! Also, I'm glad you like that snippet of artwork; I wish I actually could draw the MH style more accurately, but I'm working on it. Mrs. Squibbles came out the best of all of them in my opinion :)

Oh, such a great batch you've put together, JSWeC! I don't know why I never thought of humanizing the tennis-bot; I think she turned out awesomely! And Brock and Claire look great as well! And I was quite happy to see the gang from your fanfic drawn out! Another fantastic job! (And Randall looks indeed as fabulous as you described him in the story :D )

I look through your DeviantArt sometimes, and I do like some of the images based on your fan-fic parody.

Though I gotta admit, some of your other images are kinda funny.

OWP and evspixarfan2012: Thank you both so much! I'm glad you appreciate all my hard work. The tennis-bot is actually going to be a secondary character in Directive, who knows Reject Force Seven very well, and occasionally talks with them. And I'll probably do more Michael and James stuff soon. :D

I haven't done much lately, due to my school schedule, but here's a quick wallpaper I whipped up based on my new story:

M + J Promo Wallpaper

To understand it, each door is supposed to represent a character in the story. Some I haven't put up yet, but maybe I'll upload their pencil sketches. For now, enjoy!

Oooh, it looks absolutely adorable, JSWeC! It looks practically identical in style with the MI opening credits, and I love how each door is based off a character! Awesome idea and great job!

OWP: Glad you like it. That was the intention of the style of the wallpaper,actually. :wink:

I don't really have much at this time, but here are some sketches I made. I may color some in this week since I'm on Spring Break.

M & J Character Sketches

Randall sketches

EDIT! Here's one of my colored sketches:

Puttin' Up Some BIG Numbers

Enjoy!

These sketches turned out great! I think my faves of the bunch are your Roz, Waternoose, and fully-colored Randall. Epic job again!

Been forgetting to put this up...

This is more of a screenshot-based parody comic, but decided to put it in here instead because it's not really a graphic people can use as a signature or avatar, but I might be making the pictures into individual signatures people can use:

For everything else, there's...

Let's see how many people get it. :wink:

Haha that is definitely what I would call "priceless"! XD Great idea!

OWP: This is kind of a late reply, but thank you very much! That scene just screamed "priceless" to me, and I just had to do a MasterCard ad parody based on the items used in pranking them.

Finally, after a long time, I am making a comeback for the summer once more! To kick it off, I will be presenting a series of Monsters University school uniforms that I have designed all on my own, putting a lot of time and effort into the project. Please be sure to read the descriptions and look at some of my inspiration examples to be able to make the connections and see how I came up with the concepts:

EEK School Uniform

JOX School Uniform

OK School Uniform

HSS School Uniform

PNK School Uniform

ROR School Uniform

Greek Council School Uniform

Hope you all enjoy it! This may be my last Pixar fanart for while, since I want to focus on doing other artwork for a time before falling back into the MU craze. May do some WALL-E, but I can't guarantee it for now.
