Dumbing of Age - Joyce by Syndicaidramon Dumbing of Age - Joyce by Syndicaidramon
My drawing of Joyce, the most adorable, naive, homeschooled christian girl in any webseries ever.
Also my first (proper) piece of fanart ever. :)
Joyce is from the webcomic "Dumbing of Age" . This picture is inspired by when Joyce decided to try to imitate Sal -- the rebel girl she looks up to.

Now she too is sporting a bike (though non-motorized) and she has upgraded from a pencil to a lollypop, which was what I originally thought it was she had in the comic strip.

I love Joyce. Kind, gentle and adorable. :3
Though in retrospect, I might've drawn her a bit too slim... Oh well.

Songs most listened to when drawing:
- Lumsk - Min Kærest Er Som Den. www.youtube.com/watch?v=32MIVH…
- Gorgoroth - Carving A Giant. www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9pa3r…
- I See Stars - Still Not Quite Enough. www.youtube.com/watch?v=UpbAA_…

- Devin Townsend Project - Grace. www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0YShM…

Still struggling a bit with perspectives and angles... and a bazillion other things, and there are several flaws I only noticed in retrospect. But aside from that I'm still fairly satisfied with how it turned out overall (especially considering my lousy skill level :P ), and I learned quite a lot in the process. So yay for that. :)

Joyce Brown, trying to be 'edgy' and 'cool'. There are few things in this world more painful to watch crash and burn than this!

Yeah. Lucky for her that she's so adorable that she can get away with it without people thinking she's super lame. Llama Emoji-23 (Shyness) [V1]

She does indeed. "A" for effort I'd say. :)

Goodness gracious, I love your geometrical backgrounds! They kind of remind me of My Life As A Teenage Robot! 

She is really cute!

Thanks a lot. Really glad you like it.
And yeah, I'm a big fan of that simplistic, modern painting art style in MLAATR and other shows like it. And while I'm not even close to being on the skill level that I desire, I'm happy that people can at least recognize it as what I'm trying to make it as.
So thanks. ^^
