Original Characters by AnnouncerGuy Original Characters by AnnouncerGuy
Even though I've mostly been practicing my digital art skills with my newly acquired tablet, I did a bit of traditional art on the side in watercolor. I'm definitely not great in this medium but this pic only started out as a way for me to remember how to draw my characters and what colors they were so I wasn't trying all that hard. The paper was super wrinkly afterwards so I flattened it with a huge biology book that I left on top of it all day. This actually worked pretty well and I barely notice the wrinkles in the scan.

So these are the characters from the various series that I planned over the years just so you know that there have been times...when I attempted to be original, even if my style still reeks of Ghibli and Toriyama. I'm very attached to all of them even though they're not very inventive because I think some of these ideas go back at least 4 years. Some characters took an extremely long time to perfect, especially the older ones...from when I sucked at drawing... Anyway, these bring back a lot of memories...I still plan on going somewhere with these stories though! really!

Your original characters look wonderful Announcer-san~!! I would just love to see more art of them~!! :heart:

When people create a character and put so much story and background to them, it is just such a wonderful thing.

Haha. I love these characters. Theyre all very distinguishable and their personalities are so vivid.
Don't kid yourself, we all know you're too lazy for that.

"even if my style still reeks of Ghibli and Toriyama"

Maybe right now, it is (just a little bit but not exactly alike). But don't worry so much about it. In time, your drawing styles will change little by little and then you'll have your own style in no time. :)

Now about these characters, I think they're great! :D I admire artists that can draw original characters and it would be great to be able to see more of them.

Watercolour really doesn't work well with me, so I must commend you on how neat this came out. :)
The characters are all very interesting and distinguishable, too. n n

"even if my style still reeks of Ghibli and Toriyama" Aww. =( I happen to like the Toriyama'esque'ness. But, well, maybe cause that gives me hope that he's still kicking out the DBZ stuff. =X In any case, like all your works, this one is great as well. I like the woman with the red hair near the middle.. and there's something about the kid on the left with the beanie that scares me. Maybe it's his excessively emotive eyebrows? Haha! They're all cute though. even the dinosaur =)

eyebrows? Well I figured since he only has dots for eyes he has to express himself somehow, haha.... Thanks!
