Congratulations JupiterXAmore by NiftyNautilus
Congratulations JupiterXAmore
I figured that Jupiter and Amore would grow up and eventually get married...they obviously invited Umbrella, Opus, Wendy, and Yucky, too. :D Drawn in copic marker.

Regulus Jovian II by NiftyNautilus
Regulus Jovian II
Believe it or not, Jupiter Jovian has a very famous ancestor (or at least in his native town)-Regulus Jovian II. He was the founder of Orange Blossom, and was known for being a choleric, materialistic person, but at the same time was often a philanthropist, was much beloved throughout Orange Blossom, and well, he had his heart in the right place. 
Not to mention his obsession with tacky cravats and that he eventually died of gout in the 1910's.

Plants Vs. Zombies Humanizations 5 by NiftyNautilus
Plants Vs. Zombies Humanizations 5
Meet the new PvZ Humanizations! :D

Vigorous Broccoli is not in the American version, but happens to be in the Chinese one. The design is gender-neutral and I can't find an Almanac entry, but the Broccoli's costume is a snazzy red pair of cat's-eye glasses-the quintessential eyewear of the stylishly bespectacled chicks in the 1950's-and my artwork. I decided to risk it and make the Vigorous Broccoli a lady. Like a broccoli stalk, she's tall, yet solidly built, and has a poofy green top (her Afro). I wanted to give her dour features, and make her look like what most people think of when they think of broccoli.
Bio: Don't be fooled by her chartreuse fur coats and high-heeled shoes, as Bonk's cousin, she can kick zombie butt any day. Although she's since then decided to dress more upscale-like, she still retains her powerful throwing arm from her days back when she was a competitive javelin thrower. Her real name is Verna.

I cannot believe that I forgot to humanize Snapdragon! Here he is, with the dragon's head now as a Raskullz-type helmet (for those unaware, those are the stupid novelty helmets that they sell at Target; they have tacky horns and ears on them) and he looks kinda puckish here. I think that the color scheme, though a bit uh, pukey, is really good and works well.
Bio: His primary weapon is a dragon-shaped flamethrower since he LOVES everything about dragons and fire. He collects dragon figurines, is interested in pyrotechnics, and even has a helmet custom-made to resemble his favorite mythical beast. He loves hanging out at luaus and tiki bars with his best friend, the upcoming Torchwood humanization. His biggest dream is to fly through the skies like a dragon, but sadly, he wasn't born with powerful scaly wings. His real name is Spencer.

Heavenly Peach, again, Chinese version, but I wanted to humanize her so bad! I drew her looking like the type of perky person that you expect to find at hospitals and charity events, you know. 
Bio: She's the official team medic, and both she and Sunny are always there to help their friends when they're hurt or severely down on their luck. Her favorite color is pink, and she is as perky and willing to brighten your day as said color, not to mention that she's as tech-savvy as her boyfriend, E.M.. Her real name is Ruby.

I just fixed Coco's (Flaming Pea's) hair to match the new version of her, which I think looks better because I prefer her wild fiery mane over the simpler ponytail.

Yes, Hot Potato is a girl. So is my humanization. As she's a plain potato, there isn't much I could do with her hair, so I gave her a pixie cut. I wanted her to be a tomboy because a lot of my female plant humanizations are pretty girly and I wanted to add some variety. 
Bio: Ever since she found out that her stress levels were unusually high, she decided to get into yoga and is now becoming an expert at it. Both she and Mary are now yoga-crazy, and have become friends because of their shared interest. Is it any surprise that she passes the Kipling "If" test's first line by now? Nope! Her real name is Ashley (get it?).

I think that my human version of Chard Guard was a pretty good one since I got to experiment with drawing extremely muscular people. Muscular characters aren't hard to draw, but super-muscled ones are. After all, he HAS to be strong since he throws zombies and was a former wrestler. I even put him in gym clothes to further the idea, and his hair-which resembles a Swiss chard, came out perfectly. Seriously, I have to have the guy practically reek of testosterone, of course.
Bio: He used to be a big name in pro wrestling, and had all the moves. Strong, fearless, and tough, he had and still has zillions of fans, but since he left to join in the fight against Zomboss, he can still use his macho skills. His trademark move, the "Knock 'Em Dead" is now more useful than ever before, but it's unfortunately now his catchphrase. His real name is Chester.

Finally, we have Pepper Pult. I wanted this humanization to have a working-class look to him, but I also wanted to mix in a bit of "nasty neighbor who glowers at you from over his fence" look because of his standing animation. I also gave him the stocky figure and orange coloration of the plant counterpart, and I think that he came out pretty well, given that I'm not too good at drawing the older middle-aged types. 
Bio: Having grown up in the slums, he's had a fairly rough childhood and knew all about how people could mess up, but he always knew he didn't want to be one of those people. He believed in pulling himself up by his own roots and working hard to get to being the successful guy he is today, and can proudly say that he's the uncle of the Pult brothers (and Winter's father). Everyone mistakes his harsh-ish demeanor for a mean personality, but deep down, he has a good heart and genuinely cares. His real name is Roland.

*puts on phony Plugsy voice* How do youse do? :)
:iconplugsyplz::iconplugsyplz::iconplugsyplz::iconplugsyplz:
Just so yas know, I prefer to call myself Emma S. (my Internet nom de plume) online, as to protect my privacy. It's really important to me that I stay safe online. :)
Hi, I'm the last person on Earth to use colored pencils instead of a computer to draw and color. So, I guess my gallery is kind of like the place you go when you're tired of the absurdly impressive anime/dragon/MLP/other digitally-done paintings that hog the front page. You can take a look around here; I warn you, I don't really draw anything impressive or popular, but I promise you that you'll find something you like in my gallery.

Nifty's FAQ

Q: Are you a mean person?
A: No. I'm usually kind, I try not to be rude, and I'm very sensitive, but get me mad, and I will erupt like Kilauea.

Q: What are some of your pet peeves?
A: Getting flamed, overly romantic drooling fangirls that slash every single character, and getting a bunch of deviations in my mailbox when I just commented on a lot of people's artwork.

Q: Do you support any fandom couples?
A: Nope. Well, if they're already dating/married in the canon, yes. Fanmade? No.

Q: What's your favorite Pokemon?
A: Chandelure.

Q: Fine then, least?
A: Eevee.

Q: Are you normal?
A: Normal is just a setting on the dryer.

Q: Innie or outie?
A: Bro, I'm always IN.

Q. Orientation?
A: Straight, although I tend to fall for boys I barely know.

Q: Do you take requests?
A: It depends on the request. If it's something that relates to a fetish, then I probably won't. If not, I'll have it done in maximum two weeks.

Q: What's your favorite TV show?
A: Invader Zim. ALL HAIL ZIM!

Yes, I am a fan of The Brave Little Toaster. Yes, I make plushies of minor TBLT characters. Believe it or not, I actually hate most modern cartoons, except for Zim, old Phineas and Ferb, and old Spongebob, but I do like many cartoons such as The Powerpuff Girls, Tiny Toon Adventures, The Jetsons, Disney movies, and My Little Pony (Friendship is Magic).
I am a 'toon addict, as you can see, but I mostly like the older cartoons that you can only watch on Boomerang or YouTube because they're generally cooler and funnier. Today's "LOL pie" jokes and toilet humor kind of repel me.
I spend a lot of time drawing cartoons of my own, as you can see, and my style is basically realistic proportions/anatomy, but the character has a more cartoonish face and hands as well as a slightly enlarged head (by this I mean about as wide as the torso, usually) and I often give my characters pencil necks. I don't really like the geometric style found in so many modern cartoons, and prefer to let the art "breathe" a little.
Many of my OCs have hair or skin colors that are not found in nature. Ever. This is because I think that the characters look cool that way. Drawing awesome technicolor people is the way I roll.
I'm generally kind of silly sometimes, but offline I'm kind of shy. It's not really easy for me to have conversations face-to-face.
I used to be really into anime, but I'm not into it as much as I used to be because of all the yaoi fangirls slashing everybody and screaming "KAWAII!" all the time. That, and live-action shows are hard for me to pay attention to, so cartoons are more of my kind of thing.
Please don't beg me to support your shippings. I hate those things, as you guys know. I also don't like "First Comment!" posts or chain mails. so please keep them away from me.
I also find it rude when you send me your artwork through notes if I already watch you. I'm going to notice it, obviously, so I'd prefer you not do that.
However, feel free to ask me questions. I ain't going to cuss you out or troll you or anything like that. :) I may be a little bonkers, but I don't bite.
By the way, I also have a penchant for pink tricycles. And socks with Pikachu on them. And tribal masks. And big hairstyles. And old music. And reptiles. And scented hand sanitizer. And animated movies that nobody watches anymore that are always direct-to-video. And weird trivia that you find in Time magazines. :D
Quotes of Mine:
"Remember kids, if you want to stay healthy, eat plenty of fruits and veggies, drink plenty of water, and don't listen to Miley Cyrus."
"The universe is constantly expanding. However, my trust of it is going the other way."
"I don't have OCD. I just need everything to be perfect, that's all."
"When I asked for baloney, I didn't mean yaoi!"
"A 'u mad bro?' a day keeps everyone away."
"Don't do drugs. Watch old cartoons instead." (They're addicting.)
Favorite color: PURPLE!!!
Favorite Food: Pizza
Fears: High speeds (why I never go on roller coasters w/ drops), losing my loved ones, super-duper-X rated intense blood, failure, teenage boys (well, most of 'em), getting lost
Things I can't do at all: sing, juggle, algebra, watch Nick Jr., make my hair stay in place whenever I try to make it look at least decent, listen to rap, dance, wear blonde wigs, go a day without talking about cartoons or animals, listen to dubstep music, and understand "shipping".
My Likes: Cartoons (mostly older ones), weird trivia, some Internet memes, creepy-crawlies, Pokemon, old commercials, getting comments on my artwork, dinosaurs, non-princess/CGI Disney movies, Celtic music, purple eyeshadow, disco music, stamps, musical soundtracks, obscure old books, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, bubblegum-flavored toothpaste, birds, sea creatures, dancing around in my room, purple, animated Tim Burton movies (like the Nightmare Before Christmas and Frankenweenie), yogurt, humorous artwork (as long as it's not sexual or racially insensitive), wind-up phonographs, and drawing. Oh yeah, and cool creepy stuff.
My Dislikes: Internet trolls/other mean people, swearing, violence IRL, Twilight, Justin Bieber, Happy Tree Friends, grody public restrooms, macaroni and cheese, rule 34, sleeping, crowds, algebra homework, getting more faves than comments, and immature teen boys.

I just discovered why you put purple glasses on Fume-shroom's humanization. On PvZ 2, I just won his costume after the Feastivus. It was purple nerdy glasses. Owo
