WOW AWESOME QUESTION. i’m actually super on the fence about this because originally flower critter genetalia had been more mantibab like? with it being a smooth and simple shape, not really much to it. but after a while i thought that maybe they could have like, near flower looking genetalia??? ugh i’m not sure how to explain it (i’ll draw an image of it sometime!) but it would look like a dog penis almost? simple in shape that would come out when they were aroused obvs but then it could split into like 3/4 sections that would flatten out sort of flower like and could be penetrated uvu
i’m…not too sure at the moment but i would definitely love to expand on it sometime! *v*/
soft of? i feel that different bits of each form together would make up my personality.(at least i think so, i’m not exactly sure what my personality is) phloxe himself isn’t just a representation of me, it’s a representation of what i want to grow into uvu
his glitch forms started out having more of my personality and then just blossomed into their own characters. so they ended up being more for fun than being like me.
if they were like me it’d just be like-
Summer: -whines a lot about the heat and never goes outside, harasses roomate, half dead all the time, stubborn
Fall: -curls up in blankets, harasses roomate, laughs a lot, gets sick easily, half dead all the time, stubborn
Winter: -super super excitable, happy, harasses roomate, laughs and gets sick a lot, half dead all the time, stubborn
spring: - literally a zombie, harasses roomate, doesn’t laugh much unless w/ friends, stubborn
the only tip i can recommend is just looking at photo references of the animal/species/race you are attempting to draw. gather 50+ images and create folders to study from. i myself really need to do that because i don’t tend to look at references ever which is why my anatomy and stuff is super wonky a lot of the time.
looking at muscle structures and the shapes of bodies is always the best course of action and i would definitely recommend that over staring at other artists and copying their anatomy. especially if we’re talking about humans. they have such variety in their shapes/features that not studying up on their musculature and structure in general leaves them looking a bit flat. i myself am guilty of not really paying attention to the muscles and curves in a body and i end up unsatisfied with my work.
if we’re talking mythical creatures though that’s a territory i can’t really touch on because i learned by just drawing over and over again and my anatomy for those is…mediocre at best. uvu;;;
oh gosh! the main reason for it is cheshire’s personality. he’s laid back, sensual, open, cheerful, and really calm. my other mascots each have personalities that compliment each other. . phloxe is quiet and solemn, hatter is nice, happy-go-lucky, but on the inside is more calculating and wary about things. (then when his “other self” appears he’s really scary) and columbus is just a big ball of energy that loves swimming and running around. hatter likes to go with the flow so he ends up being dragged along. phloxe would just stand on the sidelines and laugh while cheshire would be the poor sap who gets crashed into and thrown into the pool on accident.
i also sometimes treat my mascots as all being romantically interested in each other (so pink wouldn’t really fit)
but the main reasons pink isn’t a mascot is because his personality is too close to phloxes and the reason cheshire is a mascot is because not only did he have a fun personality to begin with, but he was also the only “developed” bab i had uwu. i was 100% satisfied with his design.
i’ve had this battle with pink about how saturated his colors were. recently with that new ref i posted i changed up his hair/color placement/lowered the saturation on his colors a bunch. with cheshire i designed him and BAM wow 100% in dokis help pme jawn down jawn down.
wow sorry for the long answer ;w;/
oh dang for suresies! i’ve drawn all of those quite a few times traditionally in sketchbooks and stuff but i don’t have a scanner i can use anymore so i haven’t uploaded anything traditional in a long while.
the first three you named are my account mascots along with cheshire (the bab) and i need to draw them a lot more/make them references because they’re my super special babies haah.
wow tho thank you so much! i’m currently redesigning my flower critters and will be moving on to a lot of my more important characters so i’ll defs be uploading more images of them <3
OMG I’m actually most proud that i could smooth line again?? i’ve been in such a rut lately i could not smooth line to save my life ugh. and now here i made a reference with smooth lines that i really enjoyed i need help i am gone
