this is literally my exact headcanon for cecil, down to the style of glasses. and wow, it's so beautifully drawn. thank you for sharing, friendo.
This is really cute!
I LIKE THIS ONE A LOT HE IS SO CUTE
I can just hear him saying "I mean really." XD Awesome Cecil - I love the background on this piece!
I love his hair. And his tattoos.
Your Cecil is the cutest Cecil. :3
So happy to se him as a POC. I feel like everyone defaults to white way too quickly, so I'm liking the change.
You know, it didn't used to bother me, how many people ended up making Cecil white (and blonde) when he has literally no physical descriptors, but after being in the fandom for a couple months now... It's getting real fuckin' old. Like, you have a literally limitless range of options for the guy! And you make him a cracker sandwich.
Sucks because I don't want to shit on anyone's headcanon -- how you see him is how you see him, and after all, the actual Cecil Baldwin is a white guy. But so is the voice of Carlos, who is clearly NOT a white guy! It's just, argh. You feel me.
Language is a bit much, but I can see your point.
A bit much for what occasion? Comments on my own work?
The "cracker sandwich" comment.
There's no need to bring up that kind of language.
There's no need to bring up that kind of language.
Well, I am a cracker sandwich, so.
That doesn't change the fact that it's technically a racial slur, though. (And why on earth would you call yourself that? )
Thank you. Just... THANK YOU. So much.
Hey, I just learned that Joseph Fink & crew are going to be casting a Latino/Hispanic actor to be the voice of Carlos from now on! He wrote about it on his Twitter/Tumblr, and his reasoning was great, not that he needs to justify that. He had been the voice of Carlos for that one episode, and he felt like it wasn't right to keep it up with the role could go to a PoC. He's a mensch, that Fink.
i'm digging the hair! looks like he's wondering if he could eat it and what it was taste like
This is adorable!
Aww, those eyes!!! Haha, I love his hair! So that's where Carlos' precious hair went. . . hehe
what an adorable little dork. i love him so much. especially when you draw him. gorgeous work.
ah he is such a cutie!! <3
what a cutie!
I started listening to Welcome to Night Vale because of your drawings of the characters. Thanks for the wonderful artwork and introducing me to a really funny show!
Aw, I'm glad to hear that! How are you liking it?
I don't know what 'Welcome to the night vale' is, but this drawing totally looks like my boyfriend and this is very disturbing.
It's just coincidence. Is your boyfriend Danny Pudi?
Nope ahahahah. But he has the same kind of face ...sort of.
But that's not the first time this thing happens, i'm starting to think that he's a real stereotype XD The thing is that he wears exactly this sort of clothes everyday and that makes the similarity striking. Because he is long haired and he has a goatee. I can't help, I HAVE to show you a photo. scontent-b-cdg.xx.fbcdn.net/hp… .
Anyway, great work, I love what you do :3
Gah, I still need to finish my cecil and carlos.
Shit YES you do. Get on the trolley, Taco, c'mon!
I'm just trying to get used to Paint Tool Sai.
I'm bout to get me a tablet for the first time, and I reckon I'll have to use SAI, too. Is it a pain in the ass?
Not if you're good at drawing. Also it depends on what kind of tablet, because you might have to focus on the screen instead if what your hand is doing. Oh, and the full version of Sai is $60. Just torrent it.
I love him and his smirk
He's like, "Nnnnope. I don't buy it."
I love the implementation of the tattoos. They seem to actually be on the skin and not just overlayed like some people would do!
Drawing tattoos is hard! I made the tattoo layer transparent to look like it was on the skin, but it isn't easy. I don't understand how some people make 'em look so perfect.
I actually think yours looks damn perfect! I've seen some really horrible ones but they only look horrible because they look flat. Maybe it was the design you picked or something else, but when you do a tattoo, it looks great!
I had just watched a Janelle Monae video, so I thought it was gender bent Cecil from the thumbnail.
I like how the end of the pattern is cut off by the negative space from his pants. The pattern, though. I keep scrolling back up to stare at. Especially the one that kind of turns into a winding road and the little cloud like bumps. The waves of his hair nicely echo those of the winding shape in the pattern.
That wave pattern is an old one -- I first used it in a drawing of Woody and Bo Peep. Man, I'm lazy with my patterns! I'm glad you like it.
You know, I feel like all my Cecils could be genderqueer, which I like. The more open he is to interpretation, the better.
Oh, I know you've used it before. Patterns are my favorite things to draw, so I have really enjoyed watching you evolve and vary that pattern. It just really intrigued me that this variation was reminiscent of a landscape.
I don't post much, but I have one drawing with a pattern similar to your wave pattern in my gallery.
I had never thought of Cecil being genderqueer, but now that you mention it, I really like the idea.
Oh Cecil, you sweet fool
