OC Short Haircuts by ShadOBabe OC Short Haircuts by ShadOBabe
Hey everyone!!
So I FINALLY got my art mojo back. And last month I decided for the heck of it to go cut my hair short.
So no ponytails for a while. XDD

But it gave me a fun idea; to draw my main OCs with short hair as well.

So here we've got from left to right: Ink (Batman), Kuncia (Thundercats), Katy Thorn (Sonic), and Fauna (X-Men).
Fauna's haircut, while cute, is the least interesting to me. (But I did change her horns, if you'll notice. They curve down now, instead of up.)
I LOVE how the other girls turned out though. I'll always prefer Kuncia's epic long braid to other hairstyles, but I'm really thinking it'll be fun to eventually give Ink and K.T. those short haircuts for real. They just look so cute!! <33
Don't hold me to it, but it's a possibility. X3

Anywho, I hope you all enjoy!!
I'll try to get more art up soon. Have a good day, okay?

Eh, getting better.
Had a kidney stone last month and then yesterday had to have a barium swallow to see if I have hernia (never want to do that again).
But right NOW, I'm doing okay. Inking my next Gotham Animals picture (Killer Croc).

Cool! Glad to hear you survived! Any thoughts on how barium tastes?

Actually the taste was bearable.
It was the texture that was horrible. I kept gagging and spitting up the stuff.

How very adorable.  These haircuts are certainly very interesting takes on your characters.  Katy is by far my favorite.  Well done!

Yeah, I MIGHT have to agree with you there, even if I think they're all cute. I just love the idea of Katy's spines poking upward when uncontrolled by a hair tie. XD

Yes i think in this case Katy has my favorite short hair outta the 4.  XDD the smaller spines are very cute touch indeed.

Katy: Oh, not bad. But ShadO sent us all on a sabbatical, so we've just been off doing our own thing while she works with her new OCs. But it's all good. I love hanging out with my chao on the beach. X3

Nice to see same ShadO at again :D. They all look pretty great.

 

Though I actually like Fauna the best. I think she looks really cute for the shorter hair. Katy also looks great. Short hair suits her.

 

I'm not the biggest fan of Ink's hair but that's mostly because I think she looks adorable with her long hair and ponytail.

 

Kuncia looks great too. But Fauna is my favorite here.

Everything looks awesome as always :D

Hi, Phil!!

REALLY? Huh, well shows what I know. I DO think it's cute (and the anatomy and posing did turn out good) (thank Heaven, considering I had to re-draw her like three times), just that it's really... plain. It's short, that's it. She took it down and snip, now it's shorter. I wanted to do more, like give her some cute barrettes or something, but like I said, after re-drawing her several times I was just kind done with it. XP

Ink: Awwww, but I worked so HARD on it!! And it's been HOT this summer... TT_TT

Thanks Philly-cheese!!
Glad you liked it!! X3

Hi!

 

Hm, I guess I see what you mean about Fauna's hair being "plain" by comparison to the other girls. That didn't really cross my mind when I first saw. I think I might perhaps find it a bit "common" if not for Fauna's signature horns. They just make it complete for me for some reason :shrug:. Plus, I really like the messy bangs :XD:

 

No offense, Inky! You look cute either way! I'm just so in love with your ponytail :lmao:

 

You're quite welcome!

Inky: Yeah, my ponytail IS pretty awesome. But it's fun to try new things. Cool thing about hair, it'll always go back to normal. 83

Gotta say, I LOVE how the short hair turned out on Fauna the most. But then again, you mentioned possibly giving her a shorter haircut by the time of Evo 2ndGen stuff, so perhaps I'm biased. X3

Katy Thorn's quillcut actually makes her look somewhat older and more mature, which is an interesting and different look for her.

Short hair on Kuncia by contrast, makes her look younger here than she normally does. She looks more like an adolescent version of Rosetta.

*chuckles* And INK'S short hair looks kind of like she cut it herself!

Really? I thought it was kinda boring compared to the others, but hey, different folks, different strokes.
Heehee, yeah, Katy's is really cute. Her standard form is as a 17 year old, so I could see this being her 20-something year old hairstyle. (Sonic 5 Years Later, anyone?)
Yeah, a bit. I need to alter Rosette's looks slightly to make them look more different. Or I could say they're related. I have wondered before if Niveus and Kuncia are cousins. XD

Ink: I did!! And I think I did I pretty good job!! :icondivaplz:

It may seem boring to you, but it has a very country-girl sort of feel while still being hip and modern, and it suits her personality really well, particularly for a young adult version of her. Teenaged Fauna with her long ponytail is perfectly fine, but I feel like this short-haired version of her is how I'm going to picture her in my head from now on as she and the others get older. (Which would be funny if you set her and Arial side by side and had people constantly mistake them for cousins or siblings, with those matching eyes and similar hair.)

Well there ya go!

Mmm, that's possible. You mentioned to me before when we were Thundercats-musing at some point that you were wondering whether or not Niveus and Kuncia are cousins.

Wraith: Hey, I'm with ya there! :highfive:

Eh, maybe. You liking it does make me look at it in a new light, but I don't want to give ALL my characters haircuts as they get older. Kuncia is ABSOLUTELY keeping her hair long and K. Thorn is TOTALLY going to get that hairstyle eventually. Ink's hairstyle is up in the air (because I could just see her willy-nilly doing anything she wanted with it if she got bored). And I had another idea for Fauna's hair as she grew up. 83

Ink: Heehee, thanks Wraithy!! Watch this!! *head-bangs*

Yoruhoshi Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

Well, I would EXPECT Kuncia to keep her hair long, as it's in accordance with the snow leopard cultural aspects of her character. Ink, I would expect to have fun with her hair all her life, so I figure that while she may mostly stay depicted with the same long ponytail, that she in all actuality plays around with hairstyles, if only for fun. And I remember you DID say something about having a very specific idea for Fauna's hair once she becomes older.

Wraith: *gigglesnorts* Nice hair flip, Inky! :XD:

EDIT: Aaaaactually, now that I think about it, I DO remember the hairstyle that I had for adult Fauna.
And it WAS short. So I do like the idea, but I'm just not happy with how it looks in this drawing.

But I suppose here's the breakdown;
Kuncia's will always be long.
K Thorn's will wind up short, but probably get longer again sometime in the future (unlikely that I'll even do stories with her at that age).
Ink's hair will be at her mercy.
And Fauna's will likely be short as an adult. But I do wanna try out some other styles before I settle on my final choice for her canon adult look. I'll definitely work on her short style too. I'm just not happy with it here. Something's not right.

True, it's common, but it isn't required. I was just saying though for my own sake. Organize my thoughts.
Yeah I think the same about Ink. But it's actually more of a recent thing. I really did image her always doing the ponytail. But as I work the idea into my head more, I think ponytail would still be her favorite. It's the most comfortable and practical, especially for running around Gotham. But this topic actually works into ANOTHER hair deviation idea I had. Not specifying what, though. X3
I did? I don't remember saying that, but DO have an idea for it. Might be different from the one I had at the time though. XD

Ink: Oooouhhh... dizzy now... *fwump*
