Daddy Issues by Catula Daddy Issues by Catula
:iconmarcelineplz::iconsaysplz: His teeth don't come out, stupid! You have the hit him where it hurts!

My half of an art trade with :iconinvaderellie:, who requested a picture of "Marceline and her twin sister Starceline (Invaderellie's original character) fighting their dad". Hope I delivered!

This picture taught me a few things.
1) It's awesome to experiment with different views.
2) I absolutely SUCK at matching the proportions on a front-facing character. I had to redraw Marceline's Dad's face three times to get it where it is now.
3) Adding rims/shading makes things generally look cooler, but I've got a long way to go making them look *really* good.

Time: 6~ hrs
Tools: Colored pencils. That is all.


:iconmarcelineplz::iconsaysplz: What? No, kick him in the HEART! The HEART!

Don't worry about it. The first time I drew LSP, I failed her colors miserably. :XD: You'll get it right eventually.

Yep, only the hardest of the hardcore materials for me! :D I don't have the extra cash to spend on nice things like tablets, Photoshop, Prisma pencils, etc, so I just make it work with the cheap stuff you buy for elementary school kids. :o

That's one thing I need to work on...I'm still not great at drawing hands. :XD:

This character is so under loved, they need to bring him back to AT! Best villain ever! I mean, anyone who can successfully pair bright red cowboy boots with a black suit.
I ask you.

Yeah, 'cause there's clearly no other part of the male anatomy that can be hit that would hurt moreso than the heart! :roll:

He is indeed a pretty badass villain character...though the Lich King from last night's two-parter was a DAMN EPIC contender for best villain.

LOLOL that's what he gets for abandoning his daughter all those years and eating her fries. :rofl:
Hm, I wonder what Marceline's mom is like? If she has one? :XD:


EW MAN THE LICH, HE WAS FREAKING CREEPY! I love how this series keeps getting darker, I can't wait to see what's in store for season 3.

Presumably she has a mom. Maybe we'll find out soon...

Dude, I know. The show is keeping it fresh, going in different directions, and continuing to be awesome. AND I JUST SAW A PROMO TODAY where Marceline is offering to turn Finn & Jake into vampires. :o

Ginnunga Featured By Owner May 7, 2011
Yeah, she was mentioned in one episode, but never seen. :/
I would have expected her to come out of the nighto with her hubby, though. Wonder why she isn't with him? LOL LIKE BESIDES HIS SCARINESS AND HIS TENDENCY TO STEAL PEOPLE'S SPIRITS. :XD:

YES OH GOSH I CAN'T WAIT FOR MORE.
It's really quite unlike any other show I'VE ever watched. Not only is it funny, but the characters are lovable and genuine, the setting is bizarre and interesting, and there's a plot, despite the short run time. :D

Catula Featured By Owner May 7, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Maybe she and Dad didn't see eye to eye, and Marceline comes from a split family. :( That would make sense, given her rebellious demeanor...

Adventure Time is the best thing to happen to cartoons in a long time. Flapjack started the trend, but Adventure Time really hit it home. Plus, the animation is just brilliant!

:iconginnunga:
Ginnunga Featured By Owner May 11, 2011
Yeah, that would make sense, since Marceline is kinda out on her own all the time!
I'd still love to see what her mom looks like, though! Maybe she looks like Marceline, more human-ish than her dad?

HECK YES.
It's definitely a trendsetter, that other cartoons will try and fail to imitate for years down the line. There's just something magical and lingering about it; it's not just random comedy, it's like a whole little world all its own. Plus, the recurrence of things from previous episodes (like the dock gauntlet and the Enchiridion) makes the whole world seem more solid and real than what you would normally find in a "cartoon". :love:

I wonder indeed...

Yep, not every show can maintain the level of continuity that Adventure Time does. The comedy is more character-based than event-based, which works in the show's favor. Plus, that visual style...I just love it. :D

Some geeky kid probably found the way to open the door to the Nightosphere and tried it just because he could. :XD:
