</spoilers> from the other upload.
Tentatively decided to upload these at 2x zoom so you can see all the cheating and horrible pixel choice decisions a little easier. This is one of the things I've been working on this month, for no reasons other than practice, ultimately. They're displayed in almost opposite chronological order. Angry Lapis was actually the first one done, and the only two expressions that were done on the same face were the two on the bottom. Every other one was rescratched no matter how similar they look to one another, bringing the total amount of scratched shapes/lines to four.
Why is the hair so inconsistent? Because I really really hate hair more than pegasus wings.
The hair here, specifically the teal part... it was so annoying and so hard to even begin to understand that it literally brought my mood down three days in a row. I don't... I don't get
how hair works -_- I'm over it now, but I'm still not happy, and I'm very upset because I can't comprehend the workings of hair at all. The most I can do is fake it, and it's blatantly clear where it fell apart. I don't know. The actual style of the hair isn't even really what I wanted when I first designed Lapis as a character (see the old icon of him), but I guess this is where it got me for these mugs.
... Yeah. This was a rough journey :c Even so, here you go, everyone. I hope you find it interesting. If anybody wants to bug me about commissions for these, chances are I will not take them
because these are extremely difficult
for me... so I'm sorry in advance for that. Still, though, I hope you guys find these neat in some way.
Lapis Lazuli Also, that angry face? That's extremely, extremely sexy >~>
Also I'm really sorry for how naughty the top right face looks, but, well... at least it's a good face, right? xD
