Human and HTF: Bruno by BrunoTheFox Human and HTF: Bruno by BrunoTheFox
Well, since the Shelly version at [link] is more popular than I would have thought... Here's my second 'Human and HTF' piece, this time featuring my own Bruno the Fox. Again, this is just my interpretation of his looks and personality-- it's nothing more than a fun experiment, and you're all free to have your own views.

So here's Bruno happy as ever, having a ball with his human counterpart. Despite my European roots, I imagine him to be a typical American sub-urb child (hence the colours and setting), running around on the street playing energetic games; "Bruno's at it again" would be a commonly-heard sentence from behind neighbouring windows. I gave the child safe shoes: he'd most likely trip over his shoelaces otherwise. (The freckles and big teeth/ears should also add to his childlike appearance.) This guy might develop into a paperboy in a few years when he's stressed to make his own money, although I think Bruno would prefer to remain a child for eternity. Innocent, playful and full of energy, but somewhat clumsy-- that's Bruno in a nutshell.

Drawing boys is challenging... Without sounding too creepy (hopefully), I think male forms lack a certain elegance, which makes playing with proportions much harder. I admit the sizes and positioning aren't perfect, but that's just too bad. Frankly, I didn't feel like hesitating as badly as I did with Shelly; since it's my own character, I guess there's just less pressure.

Who will be next? Will there even BE a next one? Come on, you know me by now: expect nothing, and any surprise will be a good one.

It's been years for me, and I don't think I'll draw a new edition myself soon. ^^;

Bruno's human form reminds of the scout from TF2, well noted for agility, speed and his baseball bat. Bruno's HTF form looks like the one with those traits. Possibility of a love of Baseball?

Could be, he's in for a game of any kind, and it's a big plus if it involves lots of energy. :)

For some reason, the interactivity of the depiction of humans with a stylized (and may I add, attractive) style of HTF gives me a feeling of bliss. I really feel something.

Bliss, eh? That's interesting... I was aiming for peaceful child-like fun with no worries. Mission accomplished ;)

I like the HTF form best. It's more childish and playful looking. XD But both look awesome!

Same here; can't beat the cuteness of the original HTFs. It was worth a try though :laughing:

Ah yes, the classic American scene. I'd picture a green backyard, but playing in the street is more of the HTF style =p.

I think it's quite interesting at just how well you match human figures to characters. And, as always, I love the style!

Had to do something to separate his head from his tail... making the tail darker looked funny, so I ended up with this :) Thanks!

Not a football fan either; it's hardly played here, anyway ;) But I guess it's the ultimate object for American kids to play with.

Thanks!

Now you don't just find someone who plays with himself =p unless we are talking about the *cough* kinky way >_>
But yeah, your best friend is another you! so i can imagine that they both have tons of fun :)
Keep drawing those, you have my interest sir Bruno :)

Even though it's sort of disturbing if someone's his own best friend, it IS pretty fortunate if you look at it this way. Thanks for the support, I'm glad you like this one too ^_^

That is a really good drawing of your HTF form, definitely a fave. I like how the back ground is to, plus football is fun. :)

And well, football and rugby aren't big in this country, but I think the shape of the ball is quite intriguing. Since it's so American to me, I just HAD to add it. ;)
