These lightbulbs have a very simple AI that tells them to drift over to stuff, and be helpfully shiny. Since they don't know if other lightbulbs are around, they tend to swarm.

Stupid helpful lightbulbs.

Made with:
Prismacolor verithin pencils
Copic marker
Photoshop

Now I can't help but imagine some lightbulbs bashing into each other b/c of that flaw.
Great pic! Seems to say so much....

How did you get the Copic markers to give you that texture?

This inspires the wannabe author in me to write a story. What kind of story, I can't say just yet. I just know that this touches me on a very primal level...

Cool!!! I usually hate to say "your art reminds me of..." but their expressions remind me of The Nightmare before Christmas.
o.o
It's really pretty, and I love how almost all your drawings have little snippets of cool world-info.

Allieeeeee I really like this picture a lot. I ESPECIALLY LOVE that texture you made around the edges. Can... Can I ask how you made it? I just.. It would really be cool to be able to make it. If the effect even has a special name I can just internet it and find out myself. OR JUST. cometomyhouseandwe'llartandstuff YEAH.

I just thought having things that could wander to where they were needed would be good, even if they're a little too eager to assist. and thanks : >

I love super spherical light bulbs. Seriously. They're so attractive.
This is starting to sound sort of creepy.

shirotsuki Featured By Owner May 22, 2012
No it's okay. Spherical lightbulbs ftw, screw those wonky swirly whatever the hell bulbs. I mean. They're not even bulbs. Why don't they call them "I don't know what this shape is" instead. ...yeah. Burn.

*dies*

Sooim Featured By Owner May 23, 2012   General Artist
Those aren't bulbs!
How are you supposed to even draw those!
Oh look Have a weird little twisty shape that is supposed to be a light bulb but isn't!
Yeah!
:|


I think it's going to be one of those things that people draw in a similar way even when they are mostly the new ones.

*flop*

shirotsuki Featured By Owner May 23, 2012
They just aren't appealing enough. Maybe one day I'll warm up to the swirly whatever the hell light things, but I'll stay with bulbs for now, at least in my art ._.

Yus. I mean, they'd probably be interesting to draw, but in a different way.

I love lightbulbs, and the story you made up is brilliant. I like how the colours and the transparency works.

The sort of scared expression is really adorable next to the other one :)

Thanks very much! I think I'd be a little worried if I was being swarmed by helpful lightbulbs. They are made of glass and fire.

Aaaaaaaaa I told you not to get all worked up! It's okay stuff takes time! Trust me, you'll never hear me say "jeeze where is that thing already?", I totally understand.

And thanks, too. I enjoyed making this piece, though it took a few tries. I murdered the first rendering with multiliners : X
