Musical Meme-ery by JelloArms Musical Meme-ery by JelloArms
I've been wanting to do this meme ever since I saw it 2 years ago but I only got around to doing it now. This was the first time I actually really drew on the computer. Normally I hand draw stuff and then scan and trace it. I still think that way is have more control. But I don't think I did too badly. I must say, Sai DEFINITELY trumps Photoshop when it comes to making line art. Shakey-old-man lines are a thing of the past!

I DID NOT skip any songs that iTunes threw my way but I did cheat on the timing. 1 song play is just too short of a time to do anything! I did give myself some guidelines though, just to remain sort of true to the meme. I limited myself to a max of 3 song plays: 1 play to lay down the guidelines (which I have left up because I think it's cool to see my drawing process) and 2 more plays to lay down cleaner lines. After I layed down lines for all the songs, I layed some flat colors in there just to make it pretty.

The characters belong to :iconhakai-kun: and are from an old web comic called Winter Muse she used to write in high school. These characters were never main characters....they didn't even have names! I just called them "horns guy and the girl." I don't even know if the girl's hair was pink because the comic was in B/W but ah well...I'm making it pink! The characters were never officially "together" but there was 1 frame I remember where they were talking to each other and I knew it was meant to be! :giggle: I realize the look of the characters change from panel to panel. Sorry about that! I have a hard time drawing faces and replicating it exactly. Being on time constraints doesn't help either.

If anyone out there needs any explanations on why I drew what I drew for any of the panels, let me know and I'll explain it. I will say that the drawings for Songs 3, 7, and 10 all kind of tie in to each other. Like a little story of sorts!

:bulletblue:Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham
:bulletgreen:Part of Your World by Jodi Benson from The Little Mermaid
:bulletred:Next Time I Fall by Peter Cetera and Amy Grant
:bulletblue:When You Believe by Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey, from The Prince of Egypt
:bulletgreen:Just Around the Riverbend by Judy Kuhn, from Pocahontas
:bulletred:This Is Your Night by Amber, from A Night At The Roxbury
:bulletblue:True Love's Kiss by Amy Adams, from Enchanted
:bulletgreen:Big Yellow Taxi by Counting Crows
:bulletred:Escapade by Janet Jackson
:bulletblue:If We Hold On Together by Kealii Raechel, from The Land Before Time

EDIT: Omg so I am looking at this drawing right now and on the right side of the page where it says "more from Jelloarms," the 4 thumbs that appear are old drawings I did in high school of 4 human characters from Winter Muse! I dunno, somehow this amused me. :giggle:

I like that one too although I don't much care for how her face turned out in that panel. It's a But I was on time constraints! I really like how the horns guy's positioning tunred out...I just don't know if I could translate it from being a cool looking doodle to an actual drawing...y'know what I mean? I like how it looks there but if I actually sat down and tried to draw it for wouldn't look as cool.
