Marceline (The Vampire Queen)

Lately I've been feeling a little uninspired, drawing-wise. One thing I find often helps is a bit of fanart. It's sort of lazy I suppose - the character has been pre-designed, personality and attitudes already thought out by the creators... but it's quite fun to draw them in a different way. Relaxing, really.

I haven't tried to draw anyone from the show "Adventure Time" before... the cartoon is fairly bizarre, but often very funny (in a random sort of way). I think it's something that's best watched with at least one other person. I didn't like the look of it at first, but I warmed to it fairly quickly.

This here is Marceline. She's only been in three episodes so far, and she's quite an interesting character. Everyone may have met a Marceline type character. Seems cool... then you think, wait, she's actually a bit of a dick... then find she's actually quite nice... but not too nice. Keeps you on your toes, and to be honest, I don't usually have the patience for people like that. But what the hell, felt like drawing her. Also, she mostly leviates about the place, which is fun to draw =)

This is Marceline as she appears in the show.

 Started drawing her a little differently here...

Feels like I haven't used markers in ages!

Well, there you have it =)

Nice! I would... --I mean, uh, looking good! Is Adventure Time a series now? I've only seen the one with the Rainicorn and the Ice King guy.
