You Didn't LOVE ME NICE by amandalafrenais You Didn't LOVE ME NICE by amandalafrenais

EDIT 3: Whoooaahhhhhh, someone requested this as a print, who am I to say no :O

EDIT 2: Fixed friggin spelling. Doctor =/= Docter. And it's always the simple words.

EDIT: Oops. Deleted and reposted because I said 'yes' to print accidentally and have no idea how to undo that.

Yes, finally got this done -- and with tastefully used textured as opposed to my texture-vomitting on other stuff.

Emboss + Overlay = whoah really I'VE BEEN DOIN IT WRONG FOR SO LONG

This is the first time-consuming, polished drawing featuring the main characters for Love Me Nice, a comic I am gearing up to start soon.

For anyone who's followed my doodles, you'll notice Claire's hair has changed color, from light blue to a strawberry blonde/brown. The blue hair worked when she was just an ice queen, but as I've written more of the story, her characters gotten deeper and much more 'real,' I guess, so the ethereal/cold look doesn't work with me. It was something mulled over for two months and I figured it was now or never.

Anyway, this is such a huge file. I was a quality-whore about EVERYTHING -- I still have the individual characters at huge resolutions, bigger than they probably needed to be.

But, yes. The words are lyrics from that old Witch Doctor song, though I bumbled and swapped the order of 'love me nice' and 'love me true.' Oh well -- would you redraw all that? I thought not.

That in mind, it's worth noting there's no actual voodoo or anything like that in the comic -- I just wanted to draw something paying tribute the comic's namesake.

This piece pops in the eye for the tender and sexy color selection, a very catchy composition of letters and other elements, and you gotta love chubby sexyness of the female character! You Didn't LOVE ME NICE by ~amandalafrenais ( Suggested by SaiyaGina and Featured by Thiefoworld )

This is the picture that got me into reading Love Me Nice. I just happened across it one day and it struck me as really adorable. I love it.

Is it weird to say that Claire always creeps me out in the comic?

No, no. This was just a fun theme for this illustration, based on the inspiration for the comic's name. There will be no voodoo in Love Me Nice. I'm sorry.
