    Happy Valentines Day, something I’m not very huge on but I thought I’d draw a little series of drawings anyway.

    [​IMG]

    These were inspired by @Nasubionna 's Chibi Valentines series, which everyone should check out because they are very lovely and cute!

    Descriptions

    First Image: In the middle of a lily-pad with a pink heart, a little mini version Miss Piggy carries her precious Kermie in her arms bridal style, facing nose-to-(not) nose with him while gazing lovingly into his eyes. Kermit, on the other hand, is looking rather alarmed at her, doing that scunchy thing with his face when he is not pleased. Piggy is wearing a royal blue dress, white gloves, light blue shoes with white toe-ends and pearls around her neck. Kermit, as is such, is wearing nothing but is trademark collar.

    Second Image: It’s up and away for Gonzo and Camilla! Just like in The Muppet Movie, Gonzo has gotten a bunch of coloured balloons and is soaring in the sky once again. Or, at least, a circle of blue sky and white clouds on a background of purple and a blue background. Only he has Camilla joining him this time. He is holding the balloons with is right hand while keeping his girlfriend close to him with is left. They both look at each other with excited and loving looks. Gonzo is wearing his plumber’s outfit, only without his cap and his shoes are replaced with black converses.

    Third Image: Amidst a background of turquoise and red colours, a big rainbow-fied circle and tiny green yellow and blue circles, Our favourite guitarist’s Floyd and Janice lay relaxed and kind of sprawled against one another while playing their instruments in a mellow jam session. Janice overlays Floyd across from him, appearing to be sitting on his left leg as the other leg is bend, as if to support her back. Floyd’s eyes are closed and his mouth is open, as if he’s laughing at his own joke again while Janice smiles at him open mouthed as if to say, “Oh, wow! Rully!” They wear their trademark clothes from The Muppet Show.

    Floyd and Walter take a selfie in between rehearsals at the Muppet Theatre. Inspired by this photo of their puppeteers Matt Vogel and Peter Linz.

    Also on my Redbubble

    Desciption
    Floyd, with that Dreamworks look of smiling and having one eyebrow raised and the other down, has his right arm around Walter's shoulders. His other arm is out of frame, suggesting that he is taking the picture with Walter's phone. Walter, in his blue suit and brown tie, smiles open mouthed in his usual excited fanboy way. In the background is a blurred stage of the Muppet Theatre, the angle suggesting it was taken from the orchestra pit or the audience.

    You've done it once again @AlittleMayhem! I love the realistic feel of this artwork and especially how you drew Walter! Amazing job!

    The other day I noticed that two of the major Muppet couples have the girls taller than the boys (shush, Janice is taller than Floyd). Gonzo and Camilla are just trying to catch up.

    Also available separately on my redbubble

    Description:
    Three of our favourite Muppet couples stand in a line in pairs. On the left is Miss Piggy and Kermit. Piggy, noticeably towering over Kermit, has her hair brushed back and is wearing her usual white pearls and gloves. Her dress is a soft lilac and her shoes are pink. She and Kermit gaze at each other, both smiling and holding hands. In the middle is Floyd and Janice, wearing their usual gear from The Muppet show, except Janice is wearing brown platform sandals making her much taller than Piggy, let alone Floyd. They copy each others' poses, smiling with an arm around the other while the other hand rests on their hip. On the right are Gonzo and Camilla. In an effort to keep up with the other two couples, Camilla is standing on stilts but is still shorter than Gonzo by a couple of inches (comb not included). However, Gonzo (who is wearing blue jeans, a white shirt and a brown argyle vest) doesn't seem to mind. In fact, he has is arms outstretched to her very proudly and excitedly.

    A couple of quick sketches today. The characters shown are quoting from Steven Universe, which me and @AnimatedC9000 are always geeking about along with Muppets. These are just two of the results.

    Description
    First Image: Zoot, shown from the torso up, is sitting in a relaxing pose with one hand on his bicep. His other hand is pointing up, mimicking a gunshot. He's looking at someone off picture and is smiling as he says, "Howdy. Bang." The background is similar to Steven's room (because artist is lazy and wasn't bother with an original one).

    Second Image: Link is on the right corner of the image from the torso up, wearing a tank top and is lifting a weight with his right hand. He's looking at Piggy, who's standing a fair distance from him and we can see her whole body. She's wearing her gym gear, headband, bodysuit, tights and legwarmers along with her usual gloves and pearls. She glares at Link.

    Link: Hey, Piggy! Come to check out some buff studs?
    Piggy: ...no.

    Cool pieces, I especially like the Link and Piggy piece, also I like the fact that you used Steven Universe quotes :)

    Nice concepts. Mayhaps :cool: is waiting for Annie Sue so he can ask her what a "familiar" is. As for Piggy and Link, urm, the only reference I can draw is that she's mad at the arrival of Spamelite and thinks she needs to be stronger through physical exercise. Then again, I could be completely wrong.

    I like the way you think! I am so drawing Spamelite at some point later!

    Initially, I was more thinking of which quotes would suit which characters and, if need be, situations. For Piggy and Link, I always figured they'd be gym-goers and those quotes from Greg and Pearl in "Couch Steven" seemed perfect for them as characters. For Zoot, well, you gotta admit there are some similarities between him and Garnet (and Buck Dewey if anyone's counting).

    Buck Dewey, the mayor's son? Huh, seems Jamie the over-acting thespian was the one with an overt crush on Garnet, at least that's what I got from last week's ep, didn't watch it in full.

    If Piggy is Pearl going to the gym, that reinforces even more her anger/jealousy/inferiority feelings towards Spamela as Sugalite.
    Feel free to use any of these ideas for your art sketches. :)

    What I meant was Buck and Garnet, as shown a bit more obviously at the end of Joy Ride, are very similar in apperence and personality eg, sunglasses, neutral expressions, cool attitude and monotone voices. The same can be said for Sour Cream-->Pearl and Jenny Pizza-->Amethyst.

    Thanks! :D

    Oh, now I get it. Another funny idea would be whichever female Muppet you cast as Amethyst impersonating Piggy/Pearl from the latest runin with Slinker.

    AlittleMayhem Well-Known Member

    Haha, yeah that would be funny!

    Actually, I did make an acrylic painting last year of a Muppet/Steven Universe crossover with muppets as the Gems. In this version, I had Piggy as Garnet, Skeeter as Amethyst, Janice as Pearl and Robin as Steven. You can find it here: http://iamallyballybee.deviantart.com/art/We-are-the-Muppet-Gems-459956537

    I might do another version one day to match the show now but it's kinda an old favourite of mine.

    Description
    Landscape painting. Background consists of green and turquoise magic light beams, diamonds and sparkles very similar to the show's backgrounds. In the centre is Miss Piggy dressed as Garnet (pre-Jail Break outfit) standing tall and confidently with her legs apart and her arms lifted both sides of her in a powerful stance with Garnet's gauntlets. Her ears are sticking out from her Afro. On the right side of the painting is Skeeter as Amethyst in her original pre-Reformed outfit. She looks like she's just running into the picture with a big smile on her face and holding the handle of her whip above her head as if she's about to crack it. On the left side is Janice as Pearl, post-Steven the Sword Fighter outfit. She stands in a graceful stance, holding her spear upright with her right hand and her left leg extended out like a ballerina. She's smiling down at Robin as Steven, who's in mid-jump in the air excited between Janice/Pearl and Piggy/Garnet. He's wearing the same as Steven (even is dark curly hair) except for the sandels.

    That's a nice pic. Yep, Skeeter as the goofball/sometimes cranky Amethyst is a perfect call. Robin as Steven's a good choice too, maybe Walter in a revised/different version?
    Thanks for all of this. :jim:

    Desciptions

    First Sketch: From left to right, Skeeter sits atop a wall, sitting cross-legged and leaning forward as she blows her bubblegum. She’s wearing sneakers, jeans and a shirt with a star on the chest. Janice and Piggy choose to stand leaning on the wall beside her. Janice is in a summer dress with a halter neck and a waist belt, wearing a wide summer hat and clutching a purse in her left arm. Piggy has deicided to go casual, wearing denim shorts and a shirt that has the words “YOU CAN’T SIT WITH US!” All of them are looking to the right off image with various unimpressed or neutral expressions.

    Second Image: They say trench coat, sunglasses and fedora are the best disguises so the girls put that to the test. From left to right: Piggy seems to get the hang of playing it cool. She walks effortlessly with grace, her hands in her coat pockets and her expression neutral. Skeeter, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to be making as much of an effort. Unlike the other two, who have their coats closed and belt around their waist, her coat is open, her shoulders hunched and hands dug into her jean pockets as she walk alongside Piggy blowing bubblegum. Janice seems to have not noticed her friends are on the move, instead standing casually and looking the other way with one hand in her coat pocket.
