AWC - Cookie by Catgoyle AWC - Cookie by Catgoyle
Inspired by the Anthro Weekly Challenge "Cookie", but not finished in time. (heh) The plain inking was finished, but... I misread the date/time for submission, and didn't enter it as a b/w work. So... now I'm simply uploading it to my gallery, the first comic of any sort I've uploaded on dA.

Be gentle! I was under some sort of mad influence. And I'll blame the local air here for it, like I blame it for me getting sick four times this bloody winter.

You may spot my two main inspirations for the characters, although I had to think on it as to why these images came to mind, as I've not watched TV in... hm. About 6 months, and even then, it was late-night fair, which has fewer commercials. "Chips Ahoy!" used to have singing cookies as part of at least one advertising campaign, and the car was inspired by the Chevron talking car series of commercials. I enjoyed both as a change of pace, but never really thought of them as anthro works until recently. I knew that they were, but didn't really think of them in that way.

So many people are exposed to anthro... things every day on TV, but they don't =realize= that they are. The scrubbing bubbles? Check. The talking hot mitt? Check. The walking pipe-robots with internal fluid issues? Check. But I'll bet that the average person who could name all of these products I've alluded to wouldn't even think to place all of these in the anthro box. (shrugs) The things that amuse me late at night. I wish they still did California Raisin commercials with their singing raisins... THOSE were commercials to look forward to!

Microns over pencil, black Tria, pink LePlume II for the cookie's blush and Prismacolor markers for the rest. Spent way too long coloring this...

(hugs!) It's always okay. Not sure if they've done more than look, but I've nudged a few people your way when they mention looking for CSS. (smiles) I really do like what you've done. Didn't have the time to alter this one to fit, but hey... it's up before Easter, thanks in very large part to you. Thank you so much for all the hard work you and your team put in on these CSS packages!

Oh dear! That is one resolution to off key singers! :D

I like the bit of blush added in panel 2 that is a great detail that came out well =^^=

(smiles) Sweet! Glad you liked it. The blush did turn out well. I like to think of him having some sort of fantasy about how =awesome= of a singer he is, especially once he's falling out of tune and beginning to vex his transportation...

(smiles) Thank you very much! Have to admit that the idea sprang into mind and simply wouldn't leave, except by putting it down on paper.

Hey, that cookie had to be good for SOMETHING, right? Thanks for the comment and the :+fav:! Too bad I didn't finish it on time; I bet I could have won that week's challenge if I had. What won was a mother cookie telling her offspring to stop eating people before dinner... At least I would have challenged them for the win!

I've been a bit busy, and I'm sorry I've not been around much. Lots of writing going on, but debating which stories, if any of them, to post on dA.
