Professor Layton...
This is a boring picture because it's just for my own practice/reference.

...I have a blister on my tablet finger. :( Why did this take ten hours?

*zillabean, you are right, his simplicity makes everything hard. I had to fix my sketch like 80,000 times. xD



Professor Layton ŠLevel-5
Art by me

xD It's a video game for the Nintendo DS -- you can probably get it from www.amazon.com or at Best Buy for pretty cheap. Start with the first one, "Professor Layton and the Curious Village". :D

that's where your wrong, the prof DOES have eye brows but because his eyes are darn high up, they are
always hidden under his hat

(man i wish i could draw like this,why are simple faces never simple ;_;)

xD Nope! No eyebrows. x3 He gets little ones when he's angry or sad though. I guess because otherwise we wouldn't see any expression in him at all. x3

BUT IT WAS WORTH EVERY SECOND OF THOSE 10 HOURS <3

He's adorrrraabblllleeeee! You really got the style down well, and I like how your own style shows through still in his hands. I love that you got the L-5 style in his head and face (adorable button eyes!), but retained a bit of your own flair in his fingertips. You even gave him NOSE BLUSH. I see nose blush.

He's just precious, I LOVE him, I can't wait to see more <3

And yes. His simplicity is what makes him actually one of the harder characters to draw... he's so specific and so stylized that if you just mess up one little teeny thing IT SHOWS. That's why it drives me mad when people are like "you're wasting your talent drawing such a simple character that any little kid could draw" and I'm like

BUDDY IF YOU ONLY KNEW HOW FUCKING WRONG YOU ARE > : [

His style is very specific, and you did quite well for a first time. Congrats!

NOW MAKE ME MORE LAYTONS *stares creepily again*

Oh you bet I gave him nose blush. xD If I am going to draw humans, they will have nose blush, dammit.

Yeah, I sketched it out once on one piece of paper, and I had to move his eyes, like, 100 times, until eventually, he looked like he hadn't slept in a week because of all the lead ick, so I had to start over, and I think I finally got the eye placement alright, but then there was his body...I wasn't sure where pieces of his body WERE under all those clothes, and I am not good at imagining human anatomy, so that gave me a headache. xD

But I even noticed in some of the screenshots I was using as reference, if his eyes are even SLIGHTLY off somehow, he looks WEIRD. Like, in a lot of the shots, his eyes were slightly too big, and it looked like he had just licked a toad or something. xD Smaller is better for his eyes. x3

Thank you for your creepy stares and enthusiasm -- I would wuss out if it weren't for you! x3
I don't think I can count how many times, while working on this, a little voice in my head said, "EFF THIS HUMAN STUFF, DRAW A DOG." xD But I persevered!!!! Because creepy stares have that effect on me. :3

The nose blush is so cute <3 It's such a subtle little touch, and a nice one.

I wasn't sure where pieces of his body WERE under all those clothes, and I am not good at imagining human anatomy, so that gave me a headache. xD

I had trouble with that at first. The Layton style is extremely hyper-stylized and, well, proportionally unrealistic anatomy. No living human has the proportions that characters in Laytonverse do, so what I do when I draw him and the gang is essentially "adjust" them to real-world proportions. I give them more believable anatomy so that I can dress them proper. Human anatomy is challenging, but honestly not too difficult when you draw it enough; it really all just comes down to practice. And I always draw everyone naked to start with, then put clothes on them, so that the clothing sits properly on a more realistic frame.

if his eyes are even SLIGHTLY off somehow, he looks WEIRD. Like, in a lot of the shots, his eyes were slightly too big, and it looked like he had just licked a toad or something. xD

Yep. His simplicity is his challenge; you gotta hit it juuuuust right, otherwise he looks wonky. My little Piyo ducky chick bird thing is the same way. I've had some people try to draw him and if they get his eyes off by even a little... he just looks... freakish LOL. Ironically, simplicity is the greatest challenge of all!

Thank you for your creepy stares and enthusiasm -- I would wuss out if it weren't for you! x3

Girl, when it comes to Laytons, I am the ULTIMATE creepy stare motivator ;)

Oh yeah, I sketch a lot on paper first, and then scan it in to ink it.

I drew him a lot on Friday, using the movie as a reference. x3

xD I always viewed him as oddly short in the games, taller than Luke, but somehow short (maybe because his legs are so small and his shoulders so wide? idk. xD

I'll keep practicing!

wiimaster97 Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hmm. Well, he has been getting taller since Diabolical Box. xD
No, seriously. He looks short on official art, but sometimes I see him with long legs.
In other words, actually proportionate legs x3

Well, just develop your own style! :]
I mean, style drifts away from the official art and makes it your own version, regardless of change. :roll:
So, do whatever. :XD:
