IT’S TIME TO GET SPOOKY! It took me two days to make these, and I absolutely couldn’t decide which background is my favorite!
This was SO MUCH FUN to make! From concept to basic design and putting everyone in costumes I was never bored or frustrated! I basically worked left to right and started with Nikki, then Max, then Neil, and then Gwen and David, and halfway through Gwen I thought how cute it would be to add Muack! So I gave our favorite little platypus some devil horns (There was a whole costume that Nikki stuffed on the poor creature but it is now in shreds all over the camp)
Nikki was by far my favorite to make! She came out so adorable and each little Mummy bandage made me so happy, I feel like I really captured her adventurous self! Neil was the easiest to do I think, his face shapes were all really easy and the costume was a sinch! He took me about twenty minutes, whereas Gwen took me 3 hours! I had such a hard time picking her costume and getting all of her shapes right, especially her eyes. Max and David took about the same. (Drawing all of those little bones was so much fun you guys don’t even know)
I was so proud that I did this all freehand too! I had references of course for the various expressions/color matching, but this is all by hand! It wasn’t photoshopped or traced, I made this all myself and I am so proud of how I managed to copy the style! All in all it came out to 110 layers!
If you want to use any of these for anything like an icon or a background/banner please let me know! Or if you have any questions about the process, I’ll be happy to talk about this, as I’m REALLY proud of it and I would love to talk to you about CC in general!
one of my fave tropes for gay men is older gay men finding a man who completes them and makes everything make sense; whose patient w/ them coming to terms w/ themselves and agrees to take things slow so they can work towards being at peace w/ themselves; older gay men who have lived a life full of having to hide themselves and hold back but now they dont have to, because they found someone whose pretty close to their missing puzzle piece; older gay men who can finally go to pride with the one they love and they’re not afraid; older gay men who aren’t envious of younger gay ppl but learning to love them and be happy for them; finding happiness after a lifetime of homophobia and finally just not being so afraid to feel and love
thats the trope for gay men, esp adult gay men, i need to see more often.
