Staring at Stuff... by NiftyNautilus
Staring at Stuff...
I was bored a few months back, and decided to draw how I imagined that Opus and Florence's room would look. I wanted to portray it as the sort of room I may have wish I had when I was a little kid, you know...and I thought that having Opus and Florence staring into empty space made sense for them, for some reason I don't know.
Like a Big Ol' Gloomy Balloon by NiftyNautilus
Like a Big Ol' Gloomy Balloon
Hey, it's Balloon Shroom-I mean, Fume Shroom, as a human. A friend at school suggested I draw him again, and I figured that I have so many pictures of Sunny (my humanized Sunflower) and my humanized Citron (who I haven't yet given a "human" name), but precious few of my oversized Fume Shroom humanization, I figured the time was ripe to draw him again. 
Yes, I know that my original design for the humanization was rushed-looking, but I definitely think that this has to be the "right" humanization. Everything about the Fume Shroom (his animation, design, and even his Almanac entry) suggests blobbiness, so I figured that I should carry over the same "blobbiness" into a human version (in physique, of course, but in his mannerisms and even the hat he wears, which is a beret in this case). When I re-did my Fume Shroom humanization, I was going to leave off the glasses (his costume), but having tried out sketching him with the glasses on, I figured that he's EXACTLY the type to wear super-thick, super-unflattering glasses. Keep in mind that I am not going for physical appeal at all here-in fact, I think that overly geeky is sort of the way he would be had he been a person.
I decided to dress him in capri pants, suspenders that don't look like they could stretch much farther, and tacky-ish loafer shoes that don't help to improve his already frumpy appearance. I did this partly because it seemed in-character, but also because that's the exact sort of thing you'd expect someone with glasses THAT clunky to wear along with them. His orange frizzy hair is meant to stand out against the color scheme of his clothing, in case you were wondering why I didn't go my usual route and color his hair green or something.
And since I give "human" names to my PvZ humanizations as not to mix them up with the regular characters-I decided to name this one Thaddeus. I figured that it kinda went with the unflatteringly outdated, blobbishness of his character.
I hope you like it! :D
Taken Captive by NiftyNautilus
Taken Captive
Remember how I drew Vangie as a mermaid a few months back? 
I decided to draw this Finding Nemo-inspired drawing (I got the idea from the final scene in Finding Nemo) of Mermaid Vangie being trapped in a net because I wanted to see if I could make this usually unlikable character seem sympathetic and because I wondered if I could portray her in a "damsel in distress" scene that affected the pathos.
I was going to draw her mimicking the Evil Queen's fate in Snow White of falling from a high cliff...but I wanted to draw the Jitterbugs girls as mermaids again. The next time you see them will be a bit lighter, however-I plan on drawing Umbrella, Amore, Florence, and possibly Vangie as mermaids again, this time riding dolphins.
Adventures in Facebook by NiftyNautilus
Adventures in Facebook
Yup-had to do it before it was taken down in October. I don't really have or need a Facebook, but I do like the Plants vs. Zombies Adventures characters so I decided to draw more plant humanizations.
Acespearagus (aka Ace)-I obviously portrayed him as a fighter pilot based on his helmet and the fact that he had to repeat flight school. I gave him a sort of steely gaze because I wanted him to look tough and a teeny weeny bit rebellious.
Bio: He was always talking back to instructors and being overzealous in flight school, so he had to repeat it. Now that he passed with flying colors, he and his younger brother have teamed up to fight Zomboss and his zombie army. He is known for being headstrong and not afraid to stand up for himself. His real name is Ace.
Popcorn (aka Paxton)-For him, as he is small, I wanted to draw him as a child between the ages of 6 and 10. He looks kinda goofy-almost like IDreamOfTheWind 's character Fred.
Bio: As he's a little scared of zombies, he sometimes hides for a long time, much to the others' annoyance. He is also very spontaneous at times and giggles a lot. His real name is Paxton.
Chilly Pepper (aka Vance)-I like the design for this guy-he reminds me of my humanized Snow Pea a little, hence his nonchalance and winter clothing. I tried to make him look like he had a cold without getting too gross, so I gave him reddened cheeks and saggy eyelids.
Bio: Eduardo's slightly younger brother, he tends to keep his anger inside most of the time. The others wonder about his mental health and what's on his mind, of course. He also has the world's flimsiest immune system and often has a bad cold. His real name is Vance.
Sweet Pea (aka Dee Dee)-Given her association with candy and her romantic personality, I drew her as short and fat with a sickeningly cloying motif. While her botanical self is cute, don't stare at her here for too long if you don't want to be nauseated by pink.
Bio : She's incredibly friendly and pleasant-yet also simple-minded and a total romantic. She also spends too much of her spare time watching chick flicks and eating equally syrupy things, and is sort of the "shipper on deck". Don't be fooled by her kindness-if you tick her off, you will be lucky to survive.
Power Flower (aka Willow)-She's definitely the "hippie chick" type-just look at her! I added her pink bandanna, peace necklace, and her cool glasses, but I also added a rainbow tie-dye shirt and cute floral bell-bottoms. Groovy!
Bio: She is your classic hippie chick, as she's all about peace and love, cares about the environment, wears a lot of peace sign jewelry and tie-dye, and is also pretty artsy. She never leaves the house without her lucky pink bandanna, and her cousin, Sunny, thinks she's a little strange for liking mostly Beatles music. Her real name is Willow.
Flaming Pea (aka Coco)-I based her design off of both Chell from The Road to El Dorado and Red Hot Riding Hood from the Tex Avery cartoon of the same name. She wears a red cocktail dress, and her hair is in a ponytail because I want it to resemble a flame.
Bio: She is strikingly beautiful, and most of the boys want her despite her on-and-off relationship with Sheldon (Human!Snow Pea). Oh yeah, and she is known for being quite the flirt. Her real name is Coco.
Ice Queen Pea (aka Hildegarde)-I really loved drawing her, what with the fancy gown and the tiara and all. I wanted to make her look elegant and refined, despite that she's obviously freezing, and I decided to base her very, very loosely off of Elsa from Frozen.
Beeshooter (aka Boris)-He just has a stripy sweater and hair, enough said.
Aspearagus (aka Gus)-I wanted him to look like a trickster for some reason, so I gave him a heavily freckled complexion, a sneaky grin, and baggy clothing. I also wanted to make it look like he was Ace's younger brother.
Beet (aka Bert)-I wanted to make him look like a tough guy, so I gave him a Mohawk haircut and torn clothing as well as a scar on his cheek. I gave him a reddened, angry face as well as his black eye that he has in the game.
Shamrock (aka Sean)-I wanted him to have some Irish features, given that shamrocks are a symbol of Ireland and that he is first unlocked in Mildew Meadows, which is implied to be somewhere in Ireland. I also tried to work his face shape into the humanization, and I think that it looks sort of alright.
Hard-Nut (aka Emery)-He's obviously a construction worker of some sort, given the clothes. I made him look tall and strong, but with friendly facial features, given his Almanac entry.
Shamrockstar (aka Brandon)-He looks like quite the rocker with his goatee, Mohawk, piercings, and distressed jacket. I drew him playing a Flying V guitar, as if he were doing some kind of shredding solo. And like his little brother Shamrock, I decided to make him a redhead as well.
Bamboom (aka Lee)-He has a sort of martial appearance, given his camo-print clothes and dog tags. His hair is meant to resemble the leaves on top of his sprout, and he wears a bandanna. This is my first time drawing camo, so please don't judge me too harshly.
But while I study and bore myself half to death, have a little sneak peek at future art!

*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, 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.
