Have a Scootabutt.
I finally finished a background for this and cleaned up a little.
So I kinda spent most of the last few days doodling in my sketchbook. Wasn’t much I else I could do.
Featuring: children’s cartoons that were on at the time!

Gonna miss you, pretty pony.
Auction ends in 24 hours!
Now in color, thanks to Elslowmo!
There should be a sourcelink on the Derpibooru page.
Eight days from now, it will have been a year since I started up Renne Quest. Sure as hell doesn’t feel like it, but time really does fly. Also, at the beginning of the month, Fez was released on Steam. Perfect timing, as far as I’m concerned.
I took lots of inspiration from many sources…
JUST shy of the deadline.
Decided to redraw a picture from an artist some of you might know, and fix a few things with it. Click above to see it.
“Feet directly under the head, for balance.”
“Legs form an “A””
“Weight/Balance on both legs.”
Unfortunately that’s the extent of my knowledge of German, but I can tell you that the image on the left is an example of what’s called “Contrapposto.”
“Contrapposto is an Italian term that means counterpose. It is used in the visual arts to describe a human figure standing with most of its weight on one foot so that its shoulders and arms twist off-axis from the hips and legs. This gives the figure a more dynamic, or alternatively relaxed appearance. It can also be used to refer to multiple figures which are in counter-pose (or opposite pose) to one another. It can further encompass the tension as a figure changes from resting on a given leg to walking or running upon it.”
in short, contrapposto is rotating the hips and shoulders to depict the character’s weight leaning in one direction or another, rather than being perfectly centered on both feet. Applying this principle in varying amounts is a nice way to avoid poses looking too stiff and add some visual interest.
It’s a word I wish I’d learned a long time before I did - and it’s also fun to say.
