Shifty's Hat by Zipper-1 Shifty's Hat by Zipper-1
Poor Shifty. It's a windy night for a hat and even worse for a stroll in the woods. All art done in Adobe Illustrator CS6. Shifty is drawn in a mix of my style and his original style.

I figured, Flash is better for sketching, while Illustrator for making perfect works.
Thankfully, I worked for like 16 hours just for a Toothy head vector in Photoshop back in May ~ where I learned using the pen tool properly. I'm glad, it wasn't a waste of time after all.
Flash drawing is sort of good too, cause it advanced my drawing skills and got me more familiar with the program.

MM, not entirely. Flash can make really nice finished work as well. Yeah, Photoshop's pen tool sucks. That's always a good thing.

Why does this reminds me of a SpongeBob Episode?

:D Hah, that huggable fat Shifty. xD

I'd love to give criticizing a shot. :) Want some? :iconashplz: <- xD Good old Ash from the Evil Dead series.

Yep. I drew him in my own style back then.

Hmm, as much as I'd love that, it would be wasted on a drawing that's months and months old. Not to mention I already know every nook and cranny of what's right and wrong with it and it was my first run with the pen tool in Illustrator before I got better with it. Besides, I improve dramatically about every two to three months, sometimes faster. Heck, I didn't even incorporate shadows in this thing! 

Oh, I know Ashley Williams.. Evil Dead 2 was made the year I was born and my 2D animation instructor, Rick Catizone was the animator for Henrietta's transformation and Ash's hand in that film.

I for one like this style! As for Illustrator, I tried it once, and totally sucked at it. xD Flash probably is limited when it comes to drawing, but I only need basic stuff for drawing simple parodies or HTF-like graphics...
Never underestimate your older works though. They can be an inspiration and you can always compare.

Wow, so you learn from some real experienced people. Best thing is that it was an independent movie, and Ash was a brilliant spoof of the regular movie heroes. :D I mostly liked the 3rd movie, though I saw on wikipedia, that it wasn't the most successful one...

Thanks! It's alright but it has its technical issues. I love Illustrator, it's just getting used to the pen tool and once you get that, it's pretty easy. Flash is actually really good for drawing but my favorite for inking is Sai and Photoshop for colors and texture. 

Oh, trust me, I know. I kept EVERYTHING I've ever drawn. Even crappy fan art from Waaaaaaaayyyy back!

Definitely! Yeah, I love the Evil Dead trilogy!

I'm more a vector addict now, especially for the unlimited resolution. :) ~ I still like photoshop for regular tweaking though. :)

About Flash ~ sometimes it has some annoying bugs D: ~ mostly when copying layers - it's still a fun program nevertheless =P

I heard, dA made these "draw this again meme"s ~ why not redraw one for such topic? Even if just for fun ~

I love vector but I mostly work in Photoshop for the finer details it offers.

True that. I work around them, mostly though. True, true.

I just might do that.

I particularly love the swirls and white dots along with for some reason, the feet I also agree are a great touch to this.

Thank you so much for the critique! It makes the time spent worthwhile! Yeah, I really have a children's book style of illustration going on, which is what really inspired the swirls for the wind. The feet are nothing more than my usual style for those. Three toes, a rounded ball and heels, so they're really just cartoony versions of real feet.

I tried to get some hardcore flow going on the tail and I think I succeeded for the most part. I'm happy with the feet for once, actually. They didn't end up looking weird or being too big, like I thought they would, though his hands came out a bit big. Thank you!

Really cute, the feet kind of freak me out but regardless of that his face is adorable and you got the colors perfect.

Nice job. c:

Oh, btw, anyone can get the colors right. All I did for that was took a picture from the show and used the eyedropper tool to sample the colors and copy them to the pen tool.

Yeah, it directly samples the color, so that whenever you use the brush, pen, pencil or color fill tools, you get the exact, same color.

Hey the feet look nice, it just took me a while to get used to it. It's your style, and you should stick to it. ^ ^

It could have been that they're green, at first sight. XD I just looked and it does give off a sickly look at first.
