This page was fun to draw, but a pain in the ass to edit. I had to forego some things because try as I did, I couldn't get it to look quite right. As a result the page isn't exactly as I wanted it to be, but it's pretty decent regardless, so I'm overall pleased.
Hey! End of Chapter two! Whoa man! Check back tomorrow for chapter three. THE FUN LITERALLY NEVER ENDS. LITERALLY.
Wow, I really love his wall. :D And I love his messy hair!! Tony you steal my heart.
@leorabbit247: :D I'm so glad you like him!
I love seeing posters and trinkets and small details that reflect characters' interests!
And yeah, I'm kind of like that too. I'm sometimes a bit weirded out by people whose homes look sort of like hotel rooms, with nothing reflecting their personality or interests. On the other hand, sometimes it can be amusing - my grandpa is a lifelong fan of boxing and sports in general but it was never reflected much in his flat until a couple years ago he built a sort of little boxing shrine - kind of like teenagers do, it just lacks a string of Christmas lights around it. It was both adorable and really hard not to laugh about. :D
@Oly-RRR: That does sound hilarious and adorable. What inspired him to finally buy into it after all that time?? My mom's obsessed with robots, I'm certain that if there comes a time where we've all moved out/passed away she's going to have a robot room XP
In early college, there was a girl in my group of friends who I was never really that close to, and when it came time to get her a Christmas gift I literally couldn't think of anything she liked. I was trying to picture stuff in her room to find clues but her room honestly looked like it was just copied out of a magazine. Like, it looked *nice* but said absolutely nothing about her. It was an awkward Christmas :/
@mitchellbravo: I'm not sure - my grandma died over 15 years ago and though I lived with grandpa for a couple of years after that (and try to visit when I can) he's been living alone for quite a while and did it sort of out of the blue. I'm glad he did it - most people of his generation definitely are more uptight than our generation and life is too short to never geek out. Maybe it started when he got a life-sized sculpture of a boxing glove as a present from someone, damn, it might be the most hilarious sculpture I've ever seen, it's just... not a kind of thing you expect to see in an average civil room. XD
And ooh, a robot room sounds brilliant! :D
And yeah, gosh, that's tough to figure out something like that! I like when people have obvious hobbies or wishlists, and even then it's possible to mess up - like giving art supplies as presents can go wrong because everyone has different preferences, like I don't mind thin paper because I use more markers and pencils than watercolours but I have a friend who works either with graphite pencils or watercolours and I never know which sketchbooks might work for her...
@Oly-RRR: It's always a pleasure when someone finally finds their thing to be a geek about, isn't it? It just seems to add an extra layer to enjoying life.
Oh gosh, you just reminded me, at my old job we had a secret santa and my good friend and I happened to get paired with each other, unbeknownst to us... and we each bought each other the same art supplies XD
@mitchellbravo: Definitely! And awww! XD
