Someone I follow here on tumblr turned out to be on the Danny Phantom fandom (phandom?) and so, I remember this cartoon once existed and I really enjoyed it - so I went after watching it again and I’m having a blast
I like so many new cartoons, it’s nice to look back and revisit the things I enjoyed back then and that shaped my taste till this day.
So, here he is! The boy, Danny, in a quick doddle toying around with colors way too bright.
I regret not starting this with “yo danny phantom he was just 14″ but you guys know the gist
fanart is so unusual for me, but here it is
original tumblr post: mahammarsart.tumblr.com/post/1…
1. the face is supposed to be chunky, again, it's my art style
I like squarish/strong jawlined faces
3 (I'll get to 2 later on, but 3 ties to 1): because of that, this drawing has no intended age for him. I do think is a bit extreme to say he looks 40, but I agree he doesn't look 14 at all, and that's okay. The expression is supposed to be a grim, that ties to the fists and crow over his head, it's a sendback to a fandom alternate universe where Danny is the ghost king, and not always the nicest fella. So he is supposed to be enjoying looking agressive.
2. I agree completely and I did use a cheap technique! It was complete lazyness of my part, but as the title says, this a quick fun sketch for me, for the sake of nostalgia. Your comment does incline me to be more meticulous with my pieces, even if they're just fun doodles.
And I should have made a more complete description, but I usually post to tumblr first and here after, and there the fandom seems to be stronger, so my bad
