Plants vs Zombies Humaniations 4 by NiftyNautilus
Plants vs Zombies Humaniations 4
Some more PvZ humanizations thanks to the beach update!
On the bottom row, we have Team Bowling Bulb, humanized as a quirky yet highly skilled pro bowling team. Here, they are also fraternal triplets. The blue bulb (Bonnie Bulb) is the second oldest. She has a flip hairstyle with a big bump on the top and her bowling shirt is blue. I decided to portray her as the prettiest one, maybe the perky one. The orange bulb (Barry Bulb) is the oldest, even though he's a bit shorter than Bonnie. He's the strongest one, and the leader. The aqua bulb (Betty Bulb) is the youngest, despite that she looks a bit older. I don't know why, but I decided to give her glasses. She's the smartest one. 

Then we have Homing Thistle. I KNOW that Homing Thistle is a he in the game, but I was encouraged by my watchers to make the humanization a woman. I mean, looking at this plant, you can't help but imagine a human form as a cranky fat lady with a permanent scowl-you know the type, as everyone has had neighbors and relatives like that. Thistle (Tara)'s prickles have been worked into her human design here as frowzy hair and triangular patterns on her dress. I decided that the most obvious place for the flower was as a hair band. Now tell me she doesn't look familiar!

Aww...the cutest of all, my humanization of Sweet Potato (Lulabelle)! Judging by her description, I couldn't help but see her as a little girl-five or six years old, maybe-with a lacy dress and Mary Jane shoes, you know the type. She's playing with a plastic toy unicorn-her favorite animal-and she seems really glad to see you. I wanted to portray this humanization as the perfect little girl-sweet, kind, joyful, and always with a smile on her face.

Okay-perhaps this humanization of Ghost Pepper (Annabelle) isn't a true HUMANization per se, because she's an actual ghost. I had a lot of fun highlighting and shading in her ectoplasmic body so that she looked phantasmagorical. She would have to be my first humanization to not be a human-and I find it really odd how a PvZ "human"-ization could be a supernatural being. Overall, though, I think that her design is a little too simple, but she still came out really well and like I wanted her to. 

I admit, I would not have humanized Tangle Kelp (Nigel) this way when I first saw him in the first PvZ. I like this erudite, scholarly version of him with the thick glasses, uncomfortable-looking suit, and the pipe he's smoking, since it's hard not to imagine a sophisticated, philosophical fellow like him this way. Gosh, it seems like I have to make many of my humanizations a bit archetypal, but I think he turned out fine.

My humanization of Guacodile (Gavin) isn't too special, so I have little to say about him other than that I like how his pit being a necklace turned out. I hope that it doesn't seem too feminine for him to have a necklace.

Then there's Banana Launcher (Dweezel). 'Nuff said.
Crusin' by NiftyNautilus
Anyone remember the Big Wave Beach trailer? The one that emulated those classic beach movies of the early 1960's? Yep-there was a Greaser Imp in there who I thought would be in the game (after all, Dark Ages had two imps-the Friar and Dragon, three if you count the herald)-but I don't think he is. I presume that he was just there as a sort of historical clarifier to help show when this takes place. (If the now-vintage hair and clothing of the zombies didn't tip you off.) I don't know what he'd do, though-run over the plants with a tiny motorcycle?
Anyway, I decided to draw him taking Imp Mermaid Zombie for a ride on the beach. Obviously, that's her hanging on to the back, hoping that she doesn't fall off. I got the idea from the various gift-shop trinkets that show a guy on a motorcycle with a girl riding behind him. 
The Curse of Umbrella by NiftyNautilus
The Curse of Umbrella
This is a really weird idea I had for a Jitterbugs creepypasta...
So, Polaris was given a device by Shayde that he could use to make people switch bodies, but he intentionally changed the settings that he could insert parts of his soul into others. Umbrella could not contain Polaris's soul because it was too hateful for her, so it began to tear through her and Opus rushed to save her, but it was too late...
*This is really just a parody creepypasta. Don't think it's real because it's not even canon and a joke, anyway.
I will not be posting until Thanksgiving week because I have a lot of things I have to do, but hopefully I can post some stuff this weekend. :D

*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.
