Anita Puffs 2: Sympathy by Duomi Anita Puffs 2: Sympathy by Duomi
Trying to post these all before my power goes caput.

Micah, Anita and Nathaniel from Laurell K. Hamilton's "Anita Blake" series. In this, the zombie-raising vampire killer is upset because of a fight with one of her boyfriends. In my brain, this scene goes something like this:

Anita: Richard is such a bastard!
Micah: Yeah, we kind of got that by now.
Nathaniel: I'll make biscuits.

See what I mean by the first one sucking? This is prettier!

Done in Adobe 7, originally with mouse, cleaned up with my tablet. Mmmm tablet. And no, that isn't at all what I picture their room as being like, but I was trying for 'simplest possible bg to give illusion of bedroom. No explanation for them sitting on floor.'

Chars (c) Laurell K., I'm just playing with them. Style inspired by Powerpuff Girls and the Potterpuffs.

[ Er, edit for correct title name. Damnit. ]

[ Edit to give Micah a left sleeve! D'oh! ]

Ooh if she could escape from the pages of her book Anita would be SO TICKED that you made her all cute.

I personally love it :dalove: but that's just me.

Really great Nathaniel by the way! AWESOME choice of non-clothing (stripper is comfortable in just boxers and can so pull it off!!)

By the way...is Micah's hair really this light? I thought it was dark like Anita's...hmmm...off to read the books again to investiage.

I felt it very aptly expresses how freaking adorable this piece is. I'm pretty sure my face looked just like that while viewing this piece.

Lol, I love Jean Claude and Asher.


Asher is so emo sometimes, it's adorable.

He is! I'd probably be a bit emo if I had his life. I love that he whines to Anita about not getting sex with Jean Claude though. Weirdly endearing.

For an Edward puff I'd need to find some way to make a cute, small gun.

Go look at a PPG episode for inspiration. Mojo Jojo had guns, didn't he? Or you can just look for a pic of him online. XD

hehe Yes I have read it. I was lucky to have someone trade in the entire 16 book set at the shop I work at so I snatched Blood Noir before it even went to the floor. I do Love your little puffs though and like you I hope Mommy dearest rips his friggen head off. But hey lets not loose Anita and Jean in the same time. Gotta pull that god card out to make those two live. <3

Goodness, this just brightened up my day. Lmao.

Richard is a bastard, though my friend says he gets much much worse come the 10th book. I'm actually curious as to how much of a bastard xD; He's bad enough as it is right now in Burnt Offerings.

This is just too adorable.<3

I should respond more quickly than after a month, but thank you for the comment...! Why did you cut your hair??
Reply
:iconbijozakura:
Bijozakura Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2008
lol because I dyed it WHITE from blonde with black in it... bad bad move. my hair was half way down my back when it was straight, but i usually have curly hair. So now its blonde again and sits on my shoulders. Although it looks nice when you have your hair white or silver, it goes gooey like cheesestring when it gets warm or wet. and if you straighten it, it breaks off in loads of little pieces~
- and no problem~! I really like your artwork
