April 10 - Maki by will-Ruzicka April 10 - Maki by will-Ruzicka
:icondez26:'s OC character, Maki. One of the characters I had wanted to draw for myself that kind of spurred me onto this whole April OC thing. I've been falling behind on the self imposed challenge, but that's mainly because work has picked up on Transformers.

Anyway... hope you like the shy, sexy, cuteness... least that's what I was going for with this one. 9_9

Awwwww so cute!

Ok the glasses are the neat bit along with the shape of the hips. Of course you are great at capturing expressions. That little smile is great. :D

Wow.

That's amazing! You made Maki so cute and curvy!
And it feels like her hair got longer in those two years since the last time I drew her. ;)
And did she return to her old glasses?

LOL, I'm not nitpicking don't worry. Just having fun. I truly love this, I've been staring at it all morning.
Thank you, mr. Ruzicka. Like that guy used to say, "I'm not worthy."
I really hope this hypes me enough to return to the drawing board myself. :)

And wow. You even drew her belt "backwards" like I always do. It's a goof that always slips up in my drawings. So much, in fact, that I'm tempted to say that Maki simply wears her belt like this on purpose even though she's right handed.

OMG.. just call me Will. My last name is terrible (not sure why I used it as my new screen name -_-)

The model I was looking at for the pose was not very curvy... I did a whole underdrawing based on that body... but I figured I needed to curve her up for my own pleasure. 9_9;

As for the glasses, I think I made them a little bigger so I could see her eyes better. Or I was looking at an old drawing of her. The picture I was using as reference must have been why I didn't realize the belt was backwards, I just went with what you drew. And if we're getting nit-picky, the inside of her pants should be a lighter shade of grey, assuming they're denim.

Curve her for OUR own pleasure.
I'm delighted by every curve I see in there. My girls are always so flat no matter how hard I try.

My initial design of her (so old, so ugly and terrible, do not look) had those big round 90s anime glasses. When I decided to revamp her, in 2006 or so, I decided to give her smaller ones with brown plastic frames instead. Like the one you now draw Nova with. (although hers are blue/gray/blackish IIRC?)

I thinking about a redesign since I need to draw again. She might end up with new glasses again. White Ray Bans? lol. Who knows.

Her pants are denim. I can't do textures for shit. I need to find a way to do that. T_T

Also, I call everyone Mr. Something. (or Ms.) Bad habit of mine, I even do it with my close friends.

Once again. I LOVE what you did.

Well, if you feel your stuff isn't curvy enough, try overdoing it. Make it MORE curvy than you initially think is proper.

I wouldn't worry too much about textures either. Just remember not to overdo the highlights on them... like... I would make the skin more shiny than the denim pants. And I don't think you'd need to do too much of a redesign on her. Just have fun drawing her in new outfits and such. Kinda like I do with my characters, maybe.

Glad you like the piece. ^^

Thanks! Glad you like it! I haven't drawn a shy girl in awhile. ( I think I relate shyness to weakness and I don't like insinuate that women are weak, I guess)

OmegaDez Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012
Maki's usually an energetic, peppy girl with a bit tombowish side, and I definitely do not see her as a weak character in any way, but she has her shy side, that's for sure.

It becomes noticeable when she has to deal with love related issues... or when someone catches a glipse of her while not wearing much... like in this picture. :)

So yeah, you nailed her perfectly. (no pun intended!)

will-Ruzicka Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Oh the whole shy=weakness thing is probably one of my own personal quirks. I have moments when I shy away from things/people/situations and then hate myself for being "weak" : I

But yeah, the picture that you use for your icon was my main source image, and it seemed to have a sort of shy feeling based on a love/friendship related issue... so in my image I decided to escalate things. Because I live in Hollywood... and if anything is worth doing, it's worth OVER doing!

OmegaDez Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2012
You didn't overdo anything. :)

And yes, that's exactly what I was going for with that one picture. When I drew it, it had been a while since I had drawn her, and I thought she could be feeling a bit down in a "I thought you didn't like me anymore" kind of way. :)

I also felt like trying something different since she usually looks so sickeningly cheerful the rest of the time!
