Shopping cart racing D9-Style for ~IllyDragonfly by Commander-June Shopping cart racing D9-Style for ~IllyDragonfly by Commander-June
Allright, here it finally is: My part of the collaboration with :iconillydragonfly:
(And part one of my - hopefully the rest to come soon - wave of finished requests and gift-arts.
I'm very sorry that everything takes me so long ATM, but I'm busy as hell.)

Our collaboration was about putting her and my District 9 OCs together into one picture.
The idea was drawing something including "shopping cart racing", with me being the one doing the line-art/shading and =IllyDragonfly being the one to do the colouring. ^^
(Which is pretty nice, for I reeeeally don't like colouring pictures at all XD
I uploaded the picture pretty large to make it as comfortable as possible for you, hope you like, download for full-size ^^))

Since her character Helen (Human, pic 1) and my caracter Alex (Poleepkwa with kid, pic1) appear to be the somewhat more serious and adult parts of our "teams", while her character Kiri (Poleepkwa, pic 2) and my character Janneca (Human, pic 2) are rather silly and a little bit crazy, I thought it would fit in pretty well, that Kiri and Janneca start a spontaneous racing game and embrass their ftriends.
(At least Alex already got used to it... ;) )

Cool thing is, I just had another fine opportunity to improve my Pollepkwa-skillz.
(Yep, I find them tricky to draw and lack reasons for training XD)

Just some other gings to mention:
- Only =IllyDragonfly knows why Alex bought a Football in a supermarket.
- I have no idea myself what sort of product "Fourty Two" is supposed to be.
- Shopping carts are REALLY uncomfortable to sit in! I can tell from personal experience - especially if you're thin I would not recommend it, for your ass will hurt as hell after 10 meters... (Not to mention it looks ricidulous when you try to climb out again... XDDD)

Finally I'm able to comment thise beautiful work!
I adore it!
And yes, I know that shopping carts are umcomfortable, I know that because I did a race sometimes! :giggle:

And sorry, I forgot if I have to colour it or to draw a comic totally new. :blush:

Awwww, I'm glad you adore it *lulz* :headbang:
(Sorry for my answer taking so long, I'm ill ATM)

So you do shopping cart races?
Now in that case you might answer me the question how exactly that works - I mean, do you have some guys simply humping a trolley and trying to ride it fast, or is there a second "team mate" who pushes you? XD

Oh, well, if you don't want to colour it anymore, that's no problem, if you'd prefer to draw a new comic that would be okay as well too - In that case we can call it an art trade if you like *hehe*

Well, actually is quite simple: I and my beloved when we are in a supermarket and it's not too crowdy, start running like idiots, me in the shopping cart and he pulling it. If we are with friends the ligher one is the cart and the stronger one pulls. ;)
Well, I could try to colour it, but I'm a bit afraid about the shades you did, if I'll add the colour I'll just make them look flat.
If once I tried it won't look well, I'll draw something else, okay? ;)

I rally wanna make a shopping cart race nao too ^^
(I start thinking whether it's good or bad that I can't climb into one without help XD)

@ Colouring:
Well, okay, I don't know what technique of colouring you use.
I think I just misunderstood something for I added the shades for i thought that makes it easier, sorry for that XD

But I'm perfectly fine with something new of course as well ^^
