Hair Concept Thingy 2 by NiftyNautilus
Hair Concept Thingy 2
Some concepts for hair customizations for my PvZ GW fan character, the Contractor Zombie. Personally, my favorite one is the walkie-talkie one. Which one would you most likely use if this were canon?
Hair Concept Thingy 1 by NiftyNautilus
Hair Concept Thingy 1
I was experimenting with possible hairstyle customizations for my PvZ GW fan character, the Amazon Warrior Zombie. I am the most proud of the "vinetail" and the "Warrior Princess" options. 
Which one would you most likely use if this was canon?
Is It Bikini Season Yet? by NiftyNautilus
Is It Bikini Season Yet?
As of late, I've been drawing Beach Bunny Zombie more often (she's the only girl, and I love drawing her hair), and I decided to draw her a few days ago. I'm not sure if her official name is "Beach Bunny" Zombie, as the trailer called her "Bikini Zombie" due to her swimwear.
The trailer also showed two Imps-there was a greaser Imp in a leather jacket, and a little girl Imp who appears to be a mermaid. I'm not sure which one will appear in the game-I think that Greaser Imp makes sense due to this world taking place in the 1960's (both the greaser and surfer subcultures were huge at the time), but the Mermaid Imp seems to have a cutesy charm to her, you know. I decided to add said Imp sitting at the base of BBZ's chair, and she's combing her hair with a fish skeleton. 
Tell me what ya think! I decided to use a new way to shade the zombies' decomposing skin!
Thea Waldseemuller v2.0 by NiftyNautilus
Thea Waldseemuller v2.0
Just a re-do of my earlier drawings of Thea, which I'll admit were not that great.
As you can see, Thea Waldseemüller is an extremely difficult character to get right, given the fleshy lips with scattered teeth, her back hump, and her facial expression. Making sure that her arms look muscular without being disturbingly so is also pretty hard. 
I think that I'm finally getting my drawings of Thea to match how I see her in my mind.
Thea's Complete Bio:
For nearly twenty years, Thea's mother had worked in the nuclear power industry until she became extremely sick from overexposure to radiation. Mrs. Waldseemüller barely survived her illness, and came extremely close to death before she made a miraculous recovery. Although most of the radioactive substances in her body were no longer there, a few very small traces remained, and not knowing about this, she and her husband Marty had their first child-Thea. Nobody expected Thea to have any sort of disfigurement at all, but the traces in Mrs. Waldseemüller's slightly toxic body caused her to mutate horribly.
When Thea was born, her parents and relatives were horrified to see that she was deformed as a result that they later learned was from exposure to radioactive substances her mother had absorbed. In spite of her deformity, she was pretty much a normal kid up until about when she was a year old-that's when she was discovered to be mute.
Thea grew up differently-she had difficulty communicating with other kids, and she was never able to find clothes-her family members had to make them for her-and she outright hated her appearance. She is also freakishly muscular, and especially loathes this because not only does it look hideous to most people, but it causes her to be unintentionally destructive. Thea also has to do all the manual labor for her family, something she also never liked.
Even though she cannot speak, Thea still has friends because she mostly communicates through written and text messages. She is best friends with Bebe Penderwick, but Bebe sometimes can be a little mean to her. Thea has a very timid and docile personality, and she enjoys writing music, painting, and sleeping. While Thea is gentle and has a good personality, she cannot stand up for herself, is very lazy, and although she is fairly smart, rarely finishes what she starts.
Thea Waldseemüller's FAQ:

1. Does Thea have any religious affiliations?
Yes. She and her family are Roman Catholic. However, this is a little known fact about her because few of her friends are close enough to truly know a whole lot about her.

2. What are some things that bother her?
Her deformity, obviously, because it restricts her from quite a lot. She hates her physique completely, often wishing that she were petite and graceful like many of her friends. Thea hates being mute, as she has always wanted to sing. This is why she often feels jealous around those who sing in front of her. She does not like cold weather, loud noises, and uncomfortable clothes. Thea is also squeamish and afraid of anything sharp or poisonous.

3. Is she dangerous?
Not really-in fact, she's probably more afraid of you than you are of her. Thea may be a huge, hulking, somewhat eldritch person, but the chance of her beating you up is slim to none. In fact, the big softie is several times more likely to just flash you a crooked grin and wave. Or she may try to get you to forget she's there by trying to disappear into a crowd.

4. How tall is Thea?
She's 6'2"-or 6'7" if she were able to stand up straight. Thea also weighs somewhere between 195-200 pounds.

Contractor Sketch
Trust me, ladies and germs, if you ever see a big fat contractor using a freakin' JACKHAMMER, snap a photo because that's something you'll never see again. Bonus points if they're undead like her. :)

*puts on phony Plugsy voice* How do youse do? :)
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.
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 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.)
Characters I have plushified: Chandelure, Reel-to-Reel, the blue fan from TBLT, Omanyte, and Plugsy.
Cartoons I can never break away from: Classic Disney stuff, Woody Woodpecker/Chilly Willy, Tiny Toon Adventures, Betty Boop, Animaniacs, Invader Zim, SpongeBob
Cartoons to NEVER WATCH AGAIN: Superjail, Happy Tree friends, Dora the Explorer, Bubble Guppies, MLP Gen 3.5, Adventure Time
Favorite color: PURPLE!!!
:rose:I :heart: THE MOD SQUAD AND COFFMAN:rose:
Favorite Food: Pizza
Fears: High speeds (why I never go on roller coasters w/ drops), losing my loved ones, intense blood, failure, teenage boys (well, most of 'em), purple table lamps, 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, use a curling iron, 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.
My Dislikes: Internet trolls/other mean people, swearing, violence, Twilight, Justin Bieber, Happy Tree Friends, grody public restrooms, macaroni and cheese, perverted artwork, sleeping, crowds, algebra homework, getting more faves than comments, and immature teen boys.
