Chibi Pictures

Not too long ago, I decided to draw some pictures in the style known as “Chibi”. Which is basically when you draw a character shorter and cuter. Characters drawn in the chibi style usually have large heads, small bodies, and huge (and sometimes extra sparkly) eyes. My version of the chibi style might be a little different from how most people draw in the style, but the way I draw them works best for me, or, at least, it works best for me right now. The character I decided to start with is Jack Frost from the movie “Rise of the Guardians”. First, I drew a picture of Jack facing forward. It’s nothing fancy, there’s no background or anything, it was just to give me a feel for the style.

I forgot to draw the staff until after I was done coloring Jack, which is why it’s so small. It should’ve been bigger, but, because it was a last-minute detail, I didn’t take the time to fix it.

Next, I decided to see which looked cuter, with a mouth, or without. I added a mouth, but I think it looks cuter without a mouth. Here is a picture of Jack with a mouth:

Which do you awesome readers think looks better?

After I did that, I thought “Why just draw a character? Why not draw a scene in chibi style?” I decided to draw the scene from the movie where Jamie is riding his sled on a path of ice, unaware that Jack Frost is the cause of the ice.

I decided to give them mouths so it would match the original scene better.

Here is a pic of the scene in the movie:

And here is a picture that a fan of Jack Frost drew. I’m putting it here because I think it is really good. I’m not sure who drew it, but if someone could tell me who it was, I would be more than happy to credit them.

Special thanks to Stina for telling me who drew this picture. All credit to this picture goes to semokan on deviantART.

Anyway, I’m planning on doing more chibi pictures in the future. Which leads to the question, which do you awesome readers like better, my chibi pictures or my anime style pictures? Also, I’m going to be taking requests on what characters/scenes I should draw in chibi style next. However, I will not accept requests for scenes that are inappropriate. And, just another reminder, I’m still pretty slow when it comes to drawing, so it will probably take me a little while before I get your request done. But, I probably am working on it, it just takes me awhile to finish pictures. Well, I have only one question left to ask.ย Any requests?

Later.

P.S. For some reason, my pictures look blurry when I post them. I’m not sure how to fix this. Do any of you awesome readers have any ideas?

    Aww, you drew him so cute! And cool scene re-draw ๐Ÿ˜€

    The picture you posted was drawn by semokan on deviantART! An easy way to find the source of an image is to right-click it and select “Search Google for this image” and look around for the original post. ๐Ÿ™‚

    The pictures are definitely not blurry on my end: I can see them all just fine!

    I think the chibis look really good for someone who’s barely started! Perhaps you could draw my as a chibi? If you need payment, I can give a sketch that I draw of something you request. (This is specifically for StrawberryTheGlaceon, so don’t get any funny ideas.)

      I guess it’s just my screen then. Whew, that’s a relief. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks! Do you mean Luka, or the character you have in your icon pic? I’d be happy to draw your request. And, don’t worry, I don’t need payment. I’m just happy that I get requests. ๐Ÿ˜€

        Either Luka, Glasses the Unicorn, or Ross Dragonwings (the heroine of my Super Paper Mario fanfiction โ€œDysfunctionalโ€). If you want to draw Ross Dragonwings, just ask and I’ll give you a basic rundown of what she looks like.

        I think I remember you saying in another comment that Ross Dragonwings was the most human of your personas, so I think I’ll draw her. A picture would probably be better reference for me, if you have one. I’m not very good at drawing a character based on what someone tells me they look like, I do better when I can look at the character.

        I’ll be putting a colored picture of Ross Dragonwings on my blog, so you can find it there!

        I just checked my picture library and I apparent haven’t colored it yet. I’m going to go fix that.

      I’m glad they’re not blurry on other people’s end. ๐Ÿ™‚ It might take a little longer to draw the goat than usual because I’ll have to figure out how to draw a goat in chibi style. But, I’ll do my best! ๐Ÿ˜€
